PAGES ONE TO EIGHT PITTSBURG. PA., SUNDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 5, 1919 PAGES ONE TO EIGHT msirij?j NEW YORK'S CRIME WAVE ALARMING CITY; ACTRESS IS KEEN FOR PITTSBURG By 0. 0. Mclntyre. . Special Correspondent THE PRESS. New Tork, Oct. 4. The police and the populace are unable to explain the sudden crime wave that is weeping New York. It is particularly an offshoot of the underworld and for daring it has never been equalled. Bank tellers are stuck-up In broad daylight, men and women are held up in the street before dark and after, messenger boys walk off with more than a million dollars In securities In a month. Black-jacking is not confined to dark alleyways any more. Two young men In the latest Broadway clothes stepped up to the cashier of the Btrand Roof at noon this week and poked guns under ". his nose. When he showed resistance they slugged him and walked A off with $3,000. Thirty feet away young couples were employing the noon hour tn jazzing to the tune of a brass band. There Is no question, acording to tho health commissioner of New Tork, about more drugs being used than ever since prohibition became effective and some of the police officials believe that most of the crimes are the work of drug fiends. However, the three hotel bandits who robbed eight hotels in a week by the stick-up method were not dope fiends it was found when they were caught. There are many reasons offered for the sudden reign of lawlessness. One disciple of Freud writing to a New Tork newspaper, declares that repression of the people Is responsible for the wave of crime that Is sweeping the world and points to the Chicago and Omaha race riots as being impossible under non-prohibition. "It has been proved," he writes, "that when you repress a people they suddenly burst out In a spasm of violence. This will continue until legislators learn to keep their hands off." Another view is that many of the hold-up men arrested are soldiers who have been out of Jobs since they left the service and la many Instances they complain that their family ties have been broken up and they are going to make society pay. Still others believe ft Is a Bolshevistic plan. "Whatever it is. It is making the metropolis unsafe for the Wayfarer. People are being slugged and robbed right in the heart of the city while the police are down In the East Side coffee houses creaking up harmless stuss games and smashing HP the furniture. David Lefkovltch is an office boy In the employ of one of the. morning papers printed on Park Row. David hadn't held the Job long, but being an assiduous sort of a person, and of husky stature he received that raest Important Job of gate boy. A grate boy sits at the door leading to the editorial rooms and any person desiring to see an editor must first, give his name to the gate boy, who may forward It to the editor. . During the actors' strike four impressive looking gentlemen entered the offices where David holds forth and asked that they be escorted to the office of the managing editor. "Who wants to see him?" demanded David. "Just say Mr. Belasco and three of his friends," was the answer. David took Mr. Belasco"s card and looked it over. Then he looked over Mr. Belasco's friends. "What is it y want to see him about?" demanded David with a show of belligerence. "Just say It's David Belasco and Harrison Gray Klske and George Broadhurst and Louis Mann," was Mr. Belasco's sharp reply. Nutin' etlrrtn' " "snapped Lefkovltch," unless you tell me your busi-ness. "Just say we're Mr. Mann. David Lefkovltch's scorn was magnificent. He turned away for a moment and then eyed Mr. Mann baleful- iy. "Actors? What are you, anyway? A aartetr Screen scouts who have been hunting around New Tork for beautiful grotesque faces for the movies report that most of the beautiful faces are found In Brooklyn and they are owned by the working girls. Many of the lucky candidates have been asked to take- a course of train ing and later will be sent to Universal city and when' they have full developed will be sent to the Italian studios wheVe the big Roma-New York Pictures Corporation is making pictures for Russia and the near Orient. Thousands of new movie actors are going to be needed when the foreign films are being made regularly. America, it Is admitted, has the best directors and the best ideas and the American director wants his own people to direct. Many of the artists and writers are buying islands up in Maine to escape the high cost of living. An island may be secured up there for $o00 and-a house erected for about $1,500. And as John T. McCutcheon said when he bought a South Sea island "it is a nice thing to have to refer to." Speaking of the movies here is a good Arnold Daly story, Mr. Daly was doing a motion picture and stopped in front of a Fifth ave. home. After ringing the bell he asked the butler for the man of the house and when that puffing dignitary arrived Mr. Daly asked permission to do a scene in front of his home. He was promptly refused. "But do you know who I am? I am Arnold Daly." "It wouldn't make any difference if you were Charlie Chaplin" replied the man slamming the door with a bang. Pittsburg might well employ Miss Helen Curry, daughter of Thomas Curry, of the Belasco offices, as a super press agent. Miss Curry believes that Pittsburg Is the garden spot of the world, despite the fact that for years she had prejudices against the city. But shewent to Pittsburg and saw and was conquered. "I prefer it to any city I have ever visited" she says. "Recently I played there at the Al-vin and one evening Miss Gertrude Gordon of The Press called to Interview me. I was rather pouty about being away from New Tork and Miss Gordon decided to show me the real Pittsburg. "The next day I saw the many beautiful homes, the stores and shops and among other things the exhibition of wonderful impressionistic .Pittsburg paintings by Edward Trumbull' in a department store. Then we walked to the Point where I saw the great rivers r coming together. Across the Point bridge we walked and up the Duquesne ' Heights incline, I saw the city from the heights of Mt. Washington it was one of the mqst inspiring sights I ever saw, even surpassing the famous inspiration point on Riverside drive. I also took In the magnificent views at Schenley and Highland parks and around Se-wickley heights." " - Miss Curry in private life is the wife of Fred R. Buckley, a well known writer of fiction.

The great height to which the American home has reached in recent years with its beautiful furniture and modem conveniences and comfort is due almost entirely to the broad application of credit. Today in this country where the credit plan is almost universally in vogue, the home of the. average working man possesses more beautiful furniture and more modern conveniences than th.e workman's home of any other nation. .
