PAGE TWELVE Poherma Doesn't "Live" In Arty Greenwich Village . '.Anymore BY TOM WQLF ATGA. Service Staff Correspondent "NEW. YORK, Dec. 12.—Bohemia?<eking visitors to Manhattan have long since passed up once-arty Greenwich Village. Bohemia doesn't live there any more. It has moved : uptown to perhaps the last menage of the muses in America- Carnegie- Hall. Carnegie Hall isn't a "hall" at »n. Under the roofs of its eight separate' buildings, in its 155 stu- •i-.iqs,' more than 700 practitioners nrid teachers of the fine arts live and work. This season Carnegie Hal! begins celebrating its golden anniversary --the fiftieth' season since maestro Walter Damrosch persuaded -steel master Andrew Carnegie to lay out .^.000,000 for a music center. There is almost nothing that "n't be' bought or taught in this •-iiy within a city. Among the staples for sale in Carnegie Hall's •halls are: drugs and foreign lan- ' unges; facials and music lessons; linmdry and ballet dancing. Come now, step lively, for a cross-section tour of Bohemia. . The artists here collected represent many moods. Here in a high, sky-lighted room, that is both home and studio. Waymand Adams, distinguished portraitist, poses wealthy clients before' the .rich, red velvet backdrop that marks so many of his portraits. Nearby, in striking contrast, the Guggenheim Foundation's cubist workers stare from panelled -walls. Beyond, on a still different order, is the triplex studio of the accomplished Fredrick K. Detwiller. Here one must walk sidewise to squeeze between the paintings, lithos, etchings and artists' bric-a-brac. Or take the dancers. Here Mikhail Mordkin, once Pavlova's partner, stamps out the time in loud, blue-sneakered feet— urging on. with every sound the human being can invent, his nymphs of the ballet. . . Not far beyond another Russian master, bearing no less famous a name, Vitale Fokine. more sedately schools his pupils. Now comes the queen of all dance stulios — famed "61." The! mirrore'd walls of this huge room have reflected the practiced grace of nearly every name in the dance for half a 'century, from Isadora Duncan down to the present lessor: the supple, Eurasian master, Yeichi Nimura. Here there is music, for which Carnegie Hall is far best known. Studios on every floor echo with lessons, ranged from drum to organ—the latter taught by Pietro Yon, among ..the world's best- known organists. Here in Carnegie Hall, every race mixes with every art. Per- tiapS—Paul Swan, sculptor, painter, actor, mime-danseur, best soeoks for this Bohemia, from which he seldom moves by day or niijnc. Clad .in, \bjagk, silk pajamas.

COURIER NEWS world's harsh realities. * SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON Prayer Is Means of Asking Spiritual Blessings awl Receiving; God's'Favor THURSDAY, DECEMBER 12, 1940 Mikhail Mordkin, once Pavlova's ballet partner, schools his pupils in his Carnegie Hall home-studio. edged in pink, he spoke "on stage" in the miniature theater he built into his studio-home. He also sleeps "on stage" in order "to escape the world's harsh realities." "Why do I live and work here?" Mr. Swan asked breathlessly. "Why? Because this is perhaps the only place in America that one can be one's self. There is quality, not quantity, to art hei'e. It's . . . it's positively European." Glenda Deloris is the name given the baby daughter born to Mr. and Mrs. Glen Ferguson on Nov. 29. The Rev. and Mrs. W. E.

L. Holland and Text: Luke 11:1-13 BV WILLIAM: E. CILROY. D. ix Kditor of Advance The icxi of this lessen contains the Lord's Prayer, which in itselt offers subject matter for many lessons, and for. a life-time of thought and action. But the specific interest of this particular passage Ls in the comment and ihc philosophy of prayer which accompanies the lesson Jesus gave His disciples in prayer, and the form and mode] which Christians have .so universally used. If we were having a lesson in tho Load's Prayer alone, it woulud be better to take the whole prayer, as given in Matthew's Gospel, chapter G 1 , verses 9-13. What is this philosophy of Prayer alone, it would be better of many people who pray. In some respects the conception and practice of prayer, that Jesus taught find practiced, are different from tho ideas of prayer commonly encouraged and fostered by 'many religious teachers. » * This common notion of prayer is that it is a means or mctho;} of asking for and gelling things. Jesus puts the emphasis all the other way. Prayer is a hunun means of receiving and appropriating what God is waiting and anxious to bestow. The soul that does not ask can hardly receive; but that does not affect or limit God's willingness to give. Apart from the verses of the Lord's Prayer itself, the most important verse in our lesson is the last verse. After pointing out what any sort of decent earthly father will do for his children, Jesus goes on to tell how much larger is the willingness and purpose of the Heavenly Father to give to man His best and most precious gift. But Jesus warns us we do not receive God's bounty just by a general attitude of receptivity. This is the lesson of the Parable of the importunate Friend contained in the lesson. The needs that we do not feel are not likely to be supplied, in fact we might question whether they can be supplied until they are "felt, for Jesus is dealing with spiritual, and not with material, gifts. * * $ A friend can give us material things, whether we want them or net; but our nearest and closest sons, Donald, Bill Gene, and Bob Dean, will leave Saturday for Crossett; to visit their son/H. L. Holland and family. A/I'-, and Mrs. Robert Kersey and children o[ tyronza spent Sunday here visiting nis r>arents. Mr. and Mrs. R. L. Keisev. __ g friend cannot force spiritual gifts upon us, or change our attitude, or make us more receptive. This change comes from within ourselves. Hence Jesus put so much stress upon our own importunate atltude. It is not that God is hesitant, or unwilling: to give; or that He can be heard, or moved, by our speaking a great deal. He is all too ready to give, but it is only importunate souls who are able to receive. Mast of ihe difficulty people have over puayer, and in unuer- sfanamg the teaching of Jesus concerning- it, com es from the obsession with material things, whereas Jesus was talking about spiritual things. He never promised His disciples ease, or pleasure, or wealth, or even health. «e never promised them even life m J£ e sense of material existecne. What He promised them was eternal life-life of a different Quality through the gifc of the Holy Spirit^Xhat i s wh at Jesus says God is anxious to bestow.

Even after hundreds of miles, people mistrust their eyes when they see its snail-like pace from the Full mark toward Kmpty —they don't see how it's possihle for a car as big as Buick to go so far on so little. But it does—and for good reasons. The whole FIREIULL engine was designed and built to get the most good out of modern gasolines. And the simple secret of Compound Car- buretion is that it keeps your engine running on its most frugal diet for all normal driving —and provides full feed only when you need, want and call for the lift of extra wallop. Meantime even the gears are helping save money—for the regular high gear in a Buick gives you the economy of the so-called "gas-saving" lop speeds you hear about. The big thing is, of course, that this » is no small car that's setting ures. There are all the siveness, comfort and performance you expect from a Buick.
