TWO WILMINGTON MORNING NEWS, WILMINGTON. DELAWARE, SATURDAY, MARCH I. 1924 RABBI LEVINGER ON .TOP Both Radicals and Conservatives Aid Progress World, He Says Says Zangwiii's Play Answers Problem of 'Revolt' in Appeal to Race Experience Rabbi Lee J. Levinger spoke on "We Moderns," the new play by Israel ZangrwiH, at the Temple Beth Emeth last night. He said in part: "The problem -of the play ia a universal one, the problem of the older and younger generations. , In this case the two generations are the Victorian parents and the modern children. The children are fascinated by freedom free verse, modernist painting, free love, even. The parents, with their greater experience have great conservatism. "The answer of Mr. Zangwlll to the problem he raises is contained in two speeches of the last act. The daughter, speakng to her father, eaya, "But how can I know that? It happened before I was born.' And her father answers, 'But bo many thinga happened before you were born. So many things happened before I was born, before the human race was born.'. - - "That is, lie appeals to the experience of the past as our guide far the present and the future to the religion of our forefathers, to their moral codes, to their ideals of art. "A new novel by Rose Macaulay, entitled Told by an Idiot," treats the same problem with a different conclusion. The Idea of this very brilliant study of English life from 1880 to the present day is simplj-that of repetition. The youngs al-ways consider themselves modern and 'new; the older generation always object to the radical innovations of the young. "Modern study of sociology gives Tis still another view the idea of balance between the forces of con servatism and progress. The old generation have behind them racial experience, it is true, but Tf that were all, progress would be impossi ble. Thus the younger generation the moderns, are doing the work of the world. Their great risks In try ing out the Tiew theories of a;t of religion, of life, are an ultimate Kfiin. Many new theories muet be cast aside, but now and then one survives and is a permanent acquisition for us all. Progress is not created by the radicals alone; they bring new Ideas, which are sometimes, good and sometimes bad. Progress la made by the conservatives also, holding firmly to the good things of the past. "Judaism also has a teaching which may help us to work out this problem in our own experience. -It iff the teaching of family love, by which the young and old may live together in confidence , and trrst. even though not in entire agreement. Through love the intellectual gap bttween parents and children mas ?e bridged, so that even while. the rae.i goes forward, and new ideas enter the realm of action, still the bond of loyalty to the old truths is never broken, and the bond of love between the generations holds firm." A special musical program waa rendered during the evening which waa greatly enjoyed by the large audience. STUDENT AND WIFE HELD AFTER DEATH OF INFANT POCTI,ASH, Maine. Teh. 20.

ORDER POLICEMEN TO USE HANDCUFFS In commenting on the criticism aimed at the police for handcuffing prisoners placed in the patrol wagon after being arrested for trivial offenses. Superintendent of Police Black yesterday afternoon said: "The police are only acting under an order issued by the Directors of Public Safety several years a&o, following the shooting of Patrolman William Davidson. at Front and Market street, after he had placed a drunken prisoner in the patrol. Davidson has never fully recovered from his wound and is at present performing the lighter duties of a turnkey. "The motion of Councilman Abrahams In requesting that the police use some judgment in their handing of prisoners and handcuffing them sounds very good, but In the case of Davidson being shot, nine men out of ten woud not have bothers about handcuffing the prisoner wfto was thought to be in a helpless and intoxicated condition. "Other instance too numerous to mention where the police on duty with the patrol have used their judgment, much to their sorrow, have occurred, some receiving torn uniforms and bruises before finally subduing the prisoner." The incident that caused all the criticism was the placing of hand-cus, not "nippers," on Maurice Freedman. 615 Madison street, arrested on a charge of harboring an unregistered dog.

Kraemer, of Wilmington, who stressed the value of pure, rick milk as a food in sickness and health, and Dr. C. C.

For making the closest guess of the number of pounds of milk produced during the past year by "Win-terthur Inka Prijly Segis Burke," one of the best producers of the Winterthur 'herd, R. T. Baker, student of Ruters College, New Brunswick, N. J, agricultural department, 'aa awarded a bull calf worth $100.

"If the Senator had conversed with people about town who know anything about Ned McLean," Senator Walsh said, "I undertake to say that nine out of every ten would have been aible to tell him it could not possibly be true."

Smithers. chief communicating officer at the White House, to , man the private wire the publisher had Installed between his Palm Beach cottage and the Post Building here. Senator Dill, Democrat, Washington, calling attention to this, declared "the trail of this thing goes the rounds of the executive's officers and it seems even in his own office." Before the Senate discussion got under way the oil committee heard flat denials of several of the sensational statements made In telegrams sent to McLean in Florida, by his employes In Washington, A. Mitchell Palmer, attorney-general in the Wilson administration, who acted for a time as counsel for McLean, told the committee he had not asked Senator Underwood, of Alabama, or anyone else, to bring pressure to bear on Senator Walsh; that he was not a "partner" of J. W. Zevely, attorney for Harry F. Sinclair, and that he 'was not looking after the interest of Fall. Through employes of the Post and all other persons, whose names are mentioned in the telegrams the committee tomorrow wi'l seek to gft "at the truth of other assrertons in the messages and to clear up a number of the mysteries their examination has left, including the identity of "apricotts," "apples," "peaches" and "cherries."
