Doughty, Republican, la "Let the people choose." "I believe that the voters have the right to say whether a judge who has completed his term should be reelected or not." Mr. Cassin said. "It does not seem the proper thing for the political bosses to make that choice for the voters by agreeing in advance on a bi-partisan indorsement. "I have nothing to lay against Justice Doughty. He has served on the bench for many years. If he has served to the satisfaction of the majority of the voters ha will be re elected. If he has not, I suppose I will take his place. In my opinion such a periodical vote of approval or disapproval by the people is a healthy thing. It seems the truer American principle." Committees Meet Friday. On Friday a joint meeting of Mr. Cassin's lawyers', business men's and campaign committees will be held at the Hotel Clarendon to devise ways and means to boost Cassin. Former Deputy Dock Commissioner Henry A. Meyer Is chairman of the campaign committee A. Lloyd Lott heads the lawyers' committee and John Mclnery is chairman of the business men's committee. Today a lawyers' committee to further the re-election chances of County Judge Alonso O. McLaughlin meets at the Clarendon. Manasseh Miller Is chairman of the committee. The vice-chairmen are George E. B rower, of the Boxing Commission: William N. Dykman, Jackson Dykmanr Leo j. mckey, Edward Ward Mc-Mahon and Peter P. Bmith. Frederick A, Heck Is secretary and Albert Conway la treasurer. TEMPLARS OBSERVE 50TH ANNIVERSARY Dressed In the full regalia of their order, 100 members of Damascus Commandery, No. 68, Knights Templar, last night attended services marking their 50th anniversary at the Clinton Avenue Congregational Church, Clinton and Lafayette aves. The knights formed an arch of swords at the entrance of the officers and color bearers of the commandery, headed by Em. 8ir William J. Wagner rnmmander. P raver was offered for the departed members of the order. A special sermon on "The Making of Life'' was preached by the Rev. Friti W. Baldwin, pastor of the church. WEATHER FORECAST Stations W E A F and W A A T i.,Drown Out Eaoh Other Interference between W E A F and W A A T, of Jersey City, has been noted by a number of Jersey City listeners, who have made complaint that the programs of both stations are drowned out in a blast of whistling and noise. The explanation lies in the fact that W A A T operates 6n 1,220 kllocyles, or twice the frequency of W E A F, which operates on 610. The radio inspector's office in Manhattan reports that only a shift In the frequency allocations of the two stations can remedy the situation. Today W E A F goes on the air from its 60-kiyowatt plant at Bell-more, L. I., on the same wave length as heretofore. ADVERTISEMENT. NEURITIS?

Echoes of the late lamented World Series were revived last nigrht as an unruly mob of more than 25,000 persons attempted to "crash the I ste" a! the irand opening of the new $1 500 -000 Universal Theater of Boro Park, 48th st and New Utrecht ave. The only difference was that instead of King Baseball being the drawing card this time It was Queen Vaudeville and her silent partner, the cinema. It was one of the most disorderly first nights ever witnessed In Brooklyn. Shortly after 8 o'clock several thousand fans had already taken up Koltloru In front of the theater, and fore another hour had passed many more thousands had swarmed in the vicinity of the new palace, forming an unbroken line of humanity for several blocks around. hale Averted, When those In the rear realized that they had no chance of getting In except by bettering their positions, a veritable raid was made on the entrance, and a panic was only averted by the quick action of the management In throwing the theater open to the public long In advance of the scheduled hour. A temporary wooden barricade placed In front of the entrance and supported by the combined efforts of employees and a cor don of police, who were powerless to stem ine numan tide, was beginning to splinter and give way under the crush when the management stepped in and relieved the situation. Police Lock Doors. No sooner had the support been removed from the wooden barricade than it was bowled over by the surging mob, which rushed the door and hurtled its way into the richly appointed place, which In a moment's time took on the appearance of an overcrowded stockyard. In less than three minutes nearly 4,000 persons had shoehomed their way into the house, which has a seating capacity of 3.000, and it was not until a warning was snouted to those outside that the police would be requested to use more than their hands on the mob that it fell back and made it possible for the police and theater workers to lock the doors. Although there was no chance of anybody gaining admittance then, several thousand persons continued to mill about the place, howling to get in. A few did get inside by climbing up the lire es capes. Officials Canght in Rush. Among those who were caught In the crush were Boro President James J. Byrne, Meier Bteinbrink and Oarl Laemmle, president of universal Chain Theaters, which put up the building. During an. address made from the stage during the show Mr. Byrne requested the crowd, practically all of whom had done a "One-Eyed Connolly," to reimburse the management as they filed out. The management announced that all money taken in would be donated to the Associated Brooklyn Charities. The theater was designed by John W. Eberson and it is said to be the first atmospheric theater in New York City, It is of the Italian garden style of architecture. The stage is equipped to accommodate every kind of production. The entire effect is that of an Italian garden, the dome representing an Italian sky, sprinkled with twinkling stars. By means of Crazed Venezuelan Student Kills Girl in Paris Hotel As Offering to Pagan Gods GUESTS AT DINNER TO JUSTICE SMITH ATTACK DRY LAW Eagle Bureau. S3 Rue Caxnbon. By CUT IIICKOK. Parls. Sept. 29 The cruel gods found four centuries ago by the Spanish conquerors in Central and South America reached out of the past to Paris yesterday and exacted (heir traditional human sacrifice. Marguerite Odette Gallier. 20 years old and pretty, knowing nothing of these gods, died on an Improvised altar In a hotel room of the student quarter as an offering to them. Henrique Briceno. a law student from Venezuela, was the self-appointed priest. Exhorting Mile. Gallier to accept his god, breaking from time to time into incantations in an unknown tongue now believed to be a South American Indian dialect, Bri-ceno built a sacrificial fire of the curtains of his room. The girl attempted to escape, but the door was locked. As the curtains burned and their smoke filled the room Brlceno turned again to her. The Gods Demanded." In a strange jumble of ancient pagan mysticism and Christian terminology he told her that ha was a descendant of gods who demanded human blood. Mile. Oallier. who had known the young Venezuelan for only a month as a mild youth, believed that he would soon become calm and reasonable again. But he continued to tell her that he had received mysterious signs of divine origin. Again calling on her to acknowledge DON'T FORGET TO REGISTER! Today Is the first day for registra tion. If you do not register you cannot vote. his pod, he seized a raaor and, bent her backward over the table. And in the ashes of the burned cloth he kl'fd her. The young woman's last terrified cries aroused the personnel of the hotel. They broke down the door and found the young man still bending over his victim, muttering rhythmic phrases In a language they did not unrlorstand. ' She would not accept god. The gods demanded her," he said In French. Briceno had not been long In Paris and few knew him well. He was belli ved to be well to do. His father was understood to be a rich land owner of Caracas. Attended Chorch Daily. Brlceno had money, but he did not spend it on the gay life traditional to rich students of the Latin Quarter. He kept to himself, had few friends and went every morning to mass. His religion, though outwardly Chris tian and Catholic, was obscured by the pagan traditions handed down through centuries In Venesuela. When she first met him a month ago Mile. Oallier realised that he lived in a singular religious exaltation. But she knew nothing of South American Indian theology. In Brlceno's long exhortations con cerning his own divine ancestry, his incantations in a tongue she could not understand, she saw no prelude to human sacrifice with herself as the offering. She thought that he was a nice boy, but a little excitable. That much she told her friends. effect machines clouds are constantly passing over the ceiling, which gives the audience the same effect as sitting in an outdoor garden. Pan Mlcnaiove, general manager oi the Universal Chain, had charge of the building arrangements. The staff of the new theater comprises Arthur M. Brilant, managing director; John A. Matthews, house manager, and David Love, musical director. MZARENE CHURCH IN NEW QUARTERS Members of the Nazarene Congregational Church yesterday opened services In their new building at Lef-ferta pi. and Grand ave., formerly occupied by the Universalist Church of Our rather. The first sermon In the new building was preached by the Rev. Dr. Mordecai Johnson, president of the Howard University, Washington, D, C. Dr. Johnson termed spirituality as the most urgent need for the advancement of the colored race. He urged educated colored youths to spread their learning to the less enlightened of the race and to devote their lives to racial advancement. The Rev. Dr. Hugh Porter, pastor of the church, expressed hopes that its move toward the heart of Brooklyn will make it a center of religious education and social service for the colored people of the boro. The evening sermon was delivered by the Rev. W. J. Faulkner of the First Congregational Church of Atlanta. Addresses were made by Miss P. E. Gunner, secretary of the Ashland Place V. W. C. A., and A. L, Comlther, secretary of the Carlton Y. M. O. A. BELLA NCA URGES CALM VIEW OF FLIGHT DISASTERS "It Is fortunate Indeed that while hysteria swept the country recently after several attempted flights a law prohibiting flights was not put Into effect, which law, of course, would be very detrimental to future aviation," said Giuseppe M. Bellanca, Brooklyn airplane Inventor, at a testimonial dinner tendered him by the Supreme Lodge of the Independent Order of Sons of Italy, held at the Hotel Commodore last night. Mr. Bellanca now has a plane under construction for a trip to Rome, which, he said, will be backed by prominent Italians In America. The transatlantic flier, Clarence D. Chamberlin, also shared honors with Mr. Bellanca. Other speakers were Congressman P. LaGuardia, Francesco M. Ferrari. S. Bollatl, Italian consul, and Dr. Francesco Trapani, supreme venerable oi tne oraer. H I Presented With Cocktail Set at Testimonial of Merchants Association. A dinner tendered last night to Municipal Court Justice Edward J. Smith by the Myrtle Avenue Mer chants Association of Ridgewood de veloped a decided anti-prohibition angle. Attacks upon the 18th Amendment by United States Senator Robert F. Wagner and practically every speaker of the evening were topped off by the presentation of a silver cocktail set to the honcred guest. The dinner was held at Trommer's Hall, Bushwlck Parkway and Conway St. "I have great connaence mat we will rectify the great mistake wo made when we passed the 18th Amendment." said Senator Wagner, "and that we will modify this unreasonable and unjust law. I returned from Europe last week where there Is beer and contentment. Everywhere I found people drinking beer, but I saw very few cases of intoxication." Supreme Court Justice James A. Dunne derided the hypocrisy of Prohibition and taking of drinks "behind programs." Jostle Dnnno Not Ashamed. "Some people are ashamed to take a drink openly. I am not," he said. "They resort to drinking behind doors or behind programs, but at any rat: the drinking goes on Just the same Justice m::h. who was appointed by Mayor Wa.tter to serve the unexpired term of former Justice Adam Caristmann. who retired from the bench four months szo. is hem? j boomed lor a new term by the asso ciation. In expressing his thanks for the testimonial, he pointed out that there have been only three appeals on hu luaxmrm of more than 400 cases during his four months on the bench. "The majority of litigants coming before me have no lawyers." he said. "They rely entirely upon the discretion of the presiding Justice, and I fully realise the responsibility of such trust. Mine is truly the poor man s court, where Justice can come only through an honest effort to be fair and a thorough understanding of human nature." County Judge Frank F. Adel. under whom Justice Smith served as chief clerk before his appointment, praised the character of his former aid and termed his elevation as a marked loss to the County Court. An address of welcome was delivered by Joseph H. Burkard, Ride-wood lawyer. Presentation of the cocktail set was made by Harrv Schleslnger. president of the association.
