Anti yet. it was then -some seven teen years ago—that theplays of th •• late Jueoh Gordin, the great reformer of the Jewish theatre, were seen mi the laiards quite frequently: it was in the days of Adler. Kessler. Thorn bent. Moskowitz in their prime. of Kennie Liptzin unt’J Bertha KaMeli in their youth. In spite «*f this, sus tained good productions were seldom given, and the same theatre that one night played a piece by Gordin, would the next evening produce a cheap op eretta. or. even worse, a melodrama, in other words, there was no perma nent home for the lietter Yiddish drama, there was no Yiddish play houses where the theatre-goer, thirst ing for a realistic play, was sure of seeing one. To sum up, while play-writing had its Jacob Gordin, the Jacob Gordin of t lie producers had not yet made liis appearance until, tire seasons ago. Maurice Swart/, came along, and. as a result of his efforts, we now have the \ iddisli Art Theatre, catering to nil ever growing audience of lovers of gen uine art. ami attracting to the Yiddish theatre elements who had been away from It for years past and. more than that, creating new audiences out of American-born and bred people, both Jewish and Gentile. It was a week ago. as I was watch ing the performance of Gogol's immor tal comedy. •*Heviw»r” ("Inspector General”), at th j Yiddish Artt Thea tre. with Its exquisite individual and ensemble playing of each actor and actress, that it oceurretl to me h/»w impossible the very thought would have been. say. fifteen years ago. of such a wonderful performance, of a typical Kussiuti play in a Yiddish theatre. In any American theatre for that matter. And yet*, there* they were Maurice Swartz himself tin* good-natured Khlektakoff.

I saw the entire ensemble before mo. and so perfect warf the ilnsion. so en trancing every gesture made, every word spoken, that I could not help for getting that the* play was being acted in Yiddish. In fact, it was not any language* whatsoever 1 was conscious of, but it was the tongue of humanity that spoke out throughout the per form a nee. Involuntarily, my miml went back to i la* seasons of a few years back when such productions were unthinkable* on the Yiddish stage, when no such en semble of Jewish actors and actresses within the walls of one theatre was possible, and in; - heurft and soul re joiced at the thought of lids breeding house of talent that Maurice Swartz with bis initiative and iron will estab lished. I thought of the actors and actresses, whosd names I have men tioned. and of Madam Bimth Abrauio witz. for whom there is no part in •'Re vizor,” but who lias Ikm pronounced by all the critics as the one and only •mother” on the Yiddish stage*, and. what ii more. I did not know whom to give* credit to Swartz, the initator of the Art Theatre: to Swartz. the direc tor: Swartz, tin* actor, or. last but not least. Swartz, tin* producer? I bad bad a brief tali; with Swartz about a year ago. but this time I mafic up my mind to draw him out more completely than I had cv.-v done be fori*. I was anxious to bear what la* bad to say about his theatre, about himself, and here are a few of the tilings he told me: ••The first of our four seasons was tin* season of tli * actor, of the new Jewish movement. Before any itliei tiling could be accomplished for Improv ing the Yiddish stage, some of us play ers had to break resolutely with the traditions —or lack of them of Gie okler players. So. in that first year, was accomplished the grouping of the younger forces. To me. that initial chapter is still very thrilling in retro spect.

It was my good fortune to Ik* at the head of that company, ami to direct Its des tiny from l that very first day in Sep teinlier, 1018. ‘We found ourselves for the lirst time realistically, in ‘Far vorfen Vinkel.’ The play cast its mood upon us —its realistic-poctjeu wistful ness, and we suddenly discovered that all the vulgar flare and of the o!d Yiddish treat re was not only inar tistic. hut unnecessary, in order to create an effect on an audience. "In the second year, and in the sea son after that, we battled for an audi ence. We felt that, these were not a regular clieplelle who understood us and wauted to go along the same path with us. 80 that it was not before the middle of the third season that we be gan to see victory ahead in tin* matter of audiences. Ily this time, we were at lust becoming an Institution. "And now. that player uud play-goer had found thcmsclvon and each other, there came an embarrassing problem. Wo had nourished ourselves on casual and occasional works of dramatic art by playwrights who did not know of the existence of an Art Theatre, and wrote at random. The dramatists of the lirst thro seasons, came from li brary idi'elvcH and from the rejected lists of the old Yiddish theatre where ‘literary’ plays were talNH*.

The first speaker of the evening was liahhi Halpern, who. in his kindly man ner of speaking, touched every heart present, and. tho he made no mention of contributions, nevertheless ueurly every one felt charitably inclined and donated liberally.
