Vol. VII. Dr. Stephen S. Wise on the Modern Woman HE SCORES PRESENT-DAY LIFE. AND APPEALS TO SERIOUS YOUNG WOMEN TO EFFECT CHANGES. r The piny "Nice People,” by lineliel Crothern which Dr. Stephen Wise revlewn below nml eoiniiieiitß on, lx now running nt the Kluw theater. New York with Mlhm Prnnelne Lnrritner In the lending role. New York —Speaking at the Free Syuugog yesterday on “Daughters of ‘Nice People’ ”, Unhid I)r. Stephen S Wise wholeheartedly condemned the present tendency on the part of young women to outdo her brothers in brev ity and laxity. In the course of his address, Dr. Wise said: “I believe much in tne present-day life of women is due to n half-consci ous revolt against stndards. some women making the terrible blunder not of insisting that man’s standards shall 1k» even as their own, hut of ac quiescing in the lower standards of men. As if women were to say—‘Yon need not lie as clean as we have been, hut we shall he as unclean as you have been.' “The change in the manner of liv ing of the daughters of ‘nice people* is due in I>art to the Europeanization or eoutinentalizatinn of our standards, and is also a result of the challenges and necessities of war emergencies. Hut here, too, the tragedy is that we have got the worst out or the war, de based ourselves to its lowest by-pro ducts instead of having achieves! its finest hopes und aims. “Let it not be imagined thut the standards of ‘nice people’ have broken down overnight. It lias not come about suddenly. It is not overmuch siuok ing on the part of the duughters of ‘nice i>eoplo,’ nor indecent drinking, nor lewd dancing, nor semi-nude dress lug, nor attendance at all-night par ties, nor the never -ceasing exhibit! of ihe lipstick—it is all of these things together thut constitute a sorry, sor did Jit tie less than tragic, thing, that make the daughters of ‘nice people* conform in manner and in lack of manner to the standards set by women of the street. “It is, to put it temperately indeed, indubious taste to have liquor at cue’s table ut all, but to offer it to young people as some ‘nice people’ do may not ho a statutory crime, hurts mor ally u vile aud despicable thing. “I have said little ol the sons of ‘nice people.’ tho these, too. are hu man persons. For these will hardly be wortit saving if the daughters of ‘nice people’ continue to Ik* ns they arc becoming.’’ Rabbi Wise said that rarely. If ever, did he preach about a play “For the thing is done too often, and it can In done too cheaply.” he said. “Ilut ’Nice people’ is a startlingly vivid and pow. crful human document which epito mizes in dramatic form the things that multitudes of men and women teach er*, within and without the pulpit, have long been trying to say. “What are the real causses of the things that arc* happening in the lives cf the thiughters of ‘Nice People,’ as shown in that first act? First of all. the woman’s movement toward eman cipation or liberation has been griev ously misunderstood and in some senses woefully perverted. “The notion of women with regard to freedom, who think that the only sure tokens of woman’s freedom are to he found in illimitable indulgence In smoking and drinking, makes one wonder whether emancipation cam#* centuries too soon or a century too late. To confound disgusting habits with independence is u strangely per verse attitude of mind. “Hack of the things that are said and done by the daughters of ‘Nice People’ lies a not wholly inexplicable levolt from, the social hypocrisy of other days with its conspiracies of-si lence and dewit, of wile and strata gem. But the absence ot high candor in one generation is no excuse for the next generation lapsing into that so called frankness which is little lwtter than unashamed indecency.and bestial ity.” Dr. Wise took Issue with the head ot a woman’s college who ascribed i these conditions to “the spirit of tin* times.” “The business of those that lead and • teach and influence the life of the young, whether in the home or in the , school or in the university or in tho chrtrcli.” he said, “Is to challenge tlu* frpirit of the times, to appeal from its } decisions that decide nothing, and to call upon the spirit of tho l»est in the finest of our youth and maidens to * lift up now stmlards for themselves and all the youth of our generation.” f .Dr. Wise concluded wtin an appeal NOTED NEW YORK PREACHER SAYS JEWS ARE ENTITLED TO RULE WORLD.

John Itoaeh Stratton, pastor of the Calvary Bap list church and one of the most noted preachers of this city, took yesterday ns his sermon “Is Henry Ford right übout the Jews.” Dr. Stratton's answer to this question was that while tin Jew Ims not yet attained a position of universal supremacy, divine provi. deuce has brought him greatest power and progress ami tins same providence will finally give Idm complete sway over the earth. Dr. Stratton asserted that the quality for leadership pos sessed by the Jew, is natural and not acquired, implanted in ids mind and heart by Cod in I lie working out of ids plan for universal redemption. According to Dr. Stratton, the (Jen tile is only temporarily in command and eventually the Jew must come*into universal dominion. “The position of the Jew today may lie likened to a train which luis been out temporarily upon the sidetrack,” said Dr. Bratton, “until another train An be made up and sent down the track to its destination. Then the train which Ims sidetracked tempor arily will take the main track and go on thru to the final fulfillment of God’s great plans and purposes.” “I, for one I**l icve the real secret is that God’s age-long plans are ma turing. The Jew’s greatness ami pow er prove not a world-wide conspiracy, but the working out of Providential plans.” The Jews ought to have Palestine, “because Cod gave them the land nml the title deed is written in tin* very word of God.” This covenant with Abralmm. according to Dr. Htraton. was to give the Jews toe Mesopota mian Valley and Egypt as well.

Elias Heifetz’ Recent Book Reviewed THREE MOTIVES FOR POGROMS GIVEN IN “THE SLAUGHTER OP THE JEWS OF THE UKRAINE.** “The Slaughter of the Jowh in Ukruine in is the title of n hook hy Elias Heifetz which was reviewed in the New Republic recently. The writer says: “The Ukrainian pogroms of 301!) constitute u striking exhibition of mass savagery. Approximately 120.- 000 men. women and children were killed: whole villages were wiped out; the entire Jewish population of south era Russia was reduced to the brink of complete destruction. Imagine our own yearly crop of lynchlngs. with large communities substituted for in dividual victims: and you gain n fair. I ly adequate conception of what hap pened to the Ukrainian .lews in 1010. Dr. Heifetz is not content merely to set down «• tab* of horrors, lie seeks | to analyze the social and psychological! factors which lie behind this explosion ! of wholesale murder. Ho discovers j three separate sets of motives, which } hold good for the three classes of po J groins. Those com in it ten by Denikin, j those committed by Fotluca, and those committed by the Ukrainian guerilla leaders. Hmikcn Agitated Pogroms. The political viewpoint of General Denikin, widely hailed in western Eu rope and America us a champion ol democracy against Bolshevik tyranny, was very simple. He lielleved that all the troubles of Russia should he ascribed to the overthrow of the Tsar, which, in Ids opinion, was brought about hy the intrigues of Jews and professional revolutionists. His rem edy was correspondingly simple. Kill off as many Jews and ievolutionists as*possible. Then the peasants would gladly surrender their land : the work ers would hasten to' give up their fac tories i all classes, would welcome th“ restoration of monarchy; ami all would again 1*» well with Holy Rus sia. Something miscarried in IHuil kin’s calculations: for the Red Army routed his Cossacks near Orel: and his defeat, was completed hy uprisings of the Ukrainian peasants in his rear. But before he was obliged to seek u hospitable refuge in England, lie en joyed the satisfaction of killing about nO.OOO Jews. Dr. Heifetz adduces many eye witness reports of pogrom** committed hy Denikin’s troops, togeth er with sp«*cliuens of the violently anti- Semitic literature distributed by order of bis propngnndn department. Petluru Indifferent to Fate of Jews. “The case of the Ukrainian nation alist leader. Petluru. Is somewhat dif ferent. I’etlura cluimed to he a So cialist; ami he can scarcely have re garded pogroms as a necessary part of his political and economic -policy. But he was unable to resist the temp, tatiou to make political capital hy de nouncing ‘the Jews at Moscow’ and to attract the ruffianly elements to his side hy offering prospects of unlim ited looting. The protestations of Pet -1 urn’s apologists that he actively op posed antl-Jewisli outrages arc ef fectively Invalidated hy the number of massacres unquestionably committed by ills troops, by his appointment of a notorious organizer of pogroms. Col onel Petrov, to the post of Minister of War. and by the fac t that he was pre ent at a pogrom in Zhitomir without making any effort to stop it. “Such lmudit leaders ns Maklin * ami Griforiev may lx» considered, in u very crude and direct sense, reprosen. tutives of tin* economic desires and in terests of the Ukrainian peasants. These peasants were very good 80l shevlkl, so far as driving out the land, lords was concerned. But. having gained possession of the land, they resented and opposed the existence of any strong central government, wheth er communist or monarchist. What they wanted was complete freedom of lheir manufactured goods, and inci dentally, to murder the Jews. Followed Bolsheviki foi Protection. "Of all the contending factions the Soviet government alone consistently and vigorously repressed every anti* Jcwisli manifestation In the territory under its contrpl. Dr. Heifetz give many instances of the Humanity and discipline of flic Red troops. When ever tin* Soviet forces wen* compelled to retreat even the Jewish bourg eoisie fled with them for protection. "Dr. Heifetz’s hook brings out very forcibly a point thut is some times overlooked by philosophic critics o; Bolshevism. The alternative to tin* Soviet regime is not a perfect state, based upon the principles of political and industrial freedom.
