Sermon on A. S. M.
Hutchinson’s Book
(Continued from Pane One.)
* She 1ms travelled far from her own
. home to her place as an Individual in
I a boarding house. In her own home
’ there was a mother —a real. old-fa sh

, irony speaks of the ’passing of her
‘ kind." of ••lamentable specimen of her
* kind." She was a mother whose ou'.v
» interest i:i life was lier 1 . husband, her
[ children, her home. She belongs to |
’ that Dark Age in which duty to oth- j
. ers dominated the moral conduct and
[ standards. She only reached tin*

I immortal s<*rvlee to womanhood hy
j rnisiitg / the dignity of women : hy say
ling to Ihe woman who is not married
i that she may still receive splendid coni*
i pensations from life. Tills Is a thing
that must he faced. Another tiling is
| whether society is what' it ought to
Ihe when so many women must go out
and e .inpete with men. My-Idea is
I that fewer women should he compelled
to compete with men.
As tin* story g«n*s on Rosalie's re
volt grows. She will have lier in
dependence. slie will have her own of
fice. she will hard her own income.
She follows her native gift for figures,
fur business. She throws herself in
to her studies. She devours every
thing which can contribute to her de
velopment in tills line She finds a
hook ill the old attic—Bngehot’s "Loin*-
hard Street.” She pores over it. Some
day she will Is* in Lombard Street!
She becomes a great business woman,
eventually a hanker. She is a genius.
Site is u sp.\ 'who spies out the op
portunities for women.
I It Is wondeful to see how this free
dom and indivdualism gradually trans.
I forms and changes her, although it
| does not destroy; her real nature. If
I it hail destroyed her womanly soul
1 she would not have suffered so in
tensely. While she was Influenced,
I she! was not radically changed. We
• see that slie becomes more and more
narrow In lier sympathy. We see how
she learns to treat sentiment with
contempt. We see her watch with
approval the* change In herself from
sensitive to sensible. Little by little
the womanliness In her becomes cor
roded. Intellectually ldg. powerful in
achievement, she goes leaping from
position to position until she realizes
her ideal and lx*comes the most dls
« ussed woman of her time. She lives
for her career, for her work, letting
nothing interfere. * It Is true that she
is warned hy an old teacher. Koggo.
who gives her an insight Into sex
psychology. She is told that to he a
woman is dangerous. And why Is it
dangerous to Ik* a woman? It is lo
calise for a woman there is no come
back.* "There are no return tickets
issued to women.” Whether she gives
herself to a man, to a drink, or to
n career, she liecnmos o ahsorlted, so
i used up hy it that she cannot prac-
I tice detachment, and. therefore, she
must beware. Rosalie says that the
I road for most women ends in a term
inus, hut that she in/ liooked farther;
that she needs no return: sin) wants
i none. When Keggo asks her if she
| may not want to come hack to mar
riage. she says the idea is preposter
j pus. She says she hates the whole
; tribe of men. But, she does not know
] herself. When a great love enters her
j life* it sweeps away all lier defense
and carries her along in an #>ver
' whelming flood. She compares her
| habits to a battlefield. She surrenA
| ers, and she argues quite correctly
| that after all if slici is to live her
| life fully and freely why should she
, deprive herself of love any more than ■
i she would deprive herself of buslm*ss.
(,nly she makes sure that slie will

. When the children meet their parents
, they must see them only at their bear.
When a child does not see a parent’s

ties, they cannot learn to sympathize,
to understand, and to love. If does

is to impress them equally with our
strength. A child Is not to think of

we are human and thus we Immunize
This regime and structure goes on
beautifully a while andj then later
there appear cracks in it. Clouds over
shadow tin* horizon. In the first place
our heroine just iiefore the birth of
her third child, I’.enji. groans at the
inequality of her life. She says,
"Your work goes on precisely as if
nothing at ail were happening; mine
has to stand by.” Then too in debat
ing this question, her husband. Harry
Occleve, nays: ”1 -have a right to a
home.” She replies. "Harry, you have
a home.” He says, "Is this a inane?”
ahd she replies. "Its where we live."
.... "<»ive yourself a home, (live
the children a home.” He answers ‘T
am a maa,” and to. this she says. "I
am a woman.”
Later an opportunity cornea to her
to go to Singapore for hoi* hunk; she
is to represent her hank in the ex
treme ends of the earth, and leave
the children. "I don't like your as
tonishment,” she answers. 'fWluti
yon had un oportunity to go to Singa
pore to defend in a big murder ease
you would have gone.” "But that is
different,” he says. "I can leave the
home. But when you take* the home
ns between a man and a woman, there
arc hound to be responsibilities which,
however much you share, cannot be
divided. Tin* woman’s are tlic—the
"What are the man’sV”
"To maintain the home.**
"I share in that.”
"Well, grant you do. I do not claim
to share (lie other.”
"You are not asked to. Harry.’*
"No. •luit'. lfiosnlie. I've the right to
ask you to provide the other."
“Oh. do not let us bring up rights.”
This brings us to the question of
what is a man’s home. A man’s home
is his wife, hut she lias to be there
with ail the full force of her person
Later on her husband says the
whole- fabric of married life is based
on this domesticity; that It is ratals
iiehed. “Established.” she says.
"Nothing is established.”
That is the cry of contemporary
thought in certain circles.- But. it is
wrong. Nature is established. We
can exploit . her. and play with her,
hut we cannot destroy her.
Later on we have this conversation;
Harry says, "I>o you feel that every
thing’s quite all right with the chil
dren.” .... ‘‘They are not quite like
ether children.” Later she agrees that
they are not; responsive, they are cold;
they do love.
Later she says. "You intimate that
I sacrifice myself for the children” . .
"I will not sacrifice illy self for the
children.” ’ It’s why women are
s«? much more bitter than men. It's
I w hat they’ve sacrificed.”
I utn sorry that this woman says
women are more bitter than men. I

•than men. They are different. They
have their own virtues and their own

One of the* novelth*:: of the coining
tlientre season will In* tin* production
of a comedy which was re<*ontl.v dip*
covered among the writings of the late
X. M. Schnlkewitz-Hchotner. the fa
mous Yiddish pioneer novelist and
Tin* comedy was written shortly -be
fore his death, seventent years ago,
and would have hen produced l»efore
had It not been for the fact that rlv*
manuscript was lost and was only re
cently found by his children. This
Sehomer posthumous comedy, ns we
are Informed, excels in genuine humor
even Ids own famous theatre pieces,
such as -Die Koket'e Dnmen.” (“The
Coquettes”). "Die Immlgraten.” ("The
Immfgrantttt”). "Hainan the Second.”
etc. It* Is not yet certain when* the
play will ho produced, except that It
will he put on by ijne of the letter
Yiddish theatres In New York.

practically left untouched heretofore
In Amerlcnn-Yiddish dramatic litera
ture. The play will Im* produced this
coming season in one of the most prom

"Once Upon a Time” is the title of
what may he termed a ,"Folk-Opera”
in seven scenes, the author of which is
Mine. Anna Shomer-Uothenberg. the
well-known soprano and interpreter of
Jewish Folk Songs. Mme. Rothenberg
is the daughter of X. M. Schaikewitz-
Scliomer. the pioneer Yiddish novelist,
and the wife of Morris Rotlienherg. the
well-known Zionist leader.
Mme. Rotlienhcrg’s play is a novelty
in tin* operatic field. While there may
have been what Is known in Europe as
• Folk Songs Impersonated," where cer
tain melodies would he used during a
l*orformaned, this opera has lien com
piled in such away ns to make the
thirty odd songs used constitute one
complete whole, with a sustained plot
and action.
On account of its novel form, the
play Is expected to make a sensation
in tin* musical and professional cli'ch's.
-Once Upon a Time” will he produced
early this season In one of the better
\ Widish theatres in New York, after
which it will Im* presented in the large
Jewish centers of America and Can
