Tim nnooKLYX daily KACLE, NEW YORK, SATirKDAY. MARCH 3. 192S. FIVE WOMEH HERE SEEKING SUFFRAGE FOR PORTO RICANS One Coes to Baltimore Four Are Received by New'York League of Women Voters. Four Porto Rican women who have recently presented a request to members of Congress at Washington for aid in obtaining the right of woman suffrage in the island were received yesterday afternoon by Mrs. Henry Goddad Leach, chairman of the New York League of Women Voters, at the Graybar Building, Manhattan. Previous to their Washington mission the delegation of five members tone is in Baltimore at the present time), visited the Conference on the Prevention and Cure of War as guests of Mrs. Carrie Chapman Catt. The delegation, with the exception of the secretary, Miss Amelia de Hostos, were middle aged women of the home type. The president of the suffrage organization which the delegation represented, Mrs. Ana Velez, appeared more like the type of grandmother we associate with old-time traditional homes. They all spoke in English, some more haltingly than others. The suffrage association in Spanish is "Association Puertorri-quena de Mujeres Sufragistas" and numbers at least 1,000 women. Have Worked 11 Years. - Signora de Hostos. who acted as chief spokesman, said: "We women have been working for suffrage for 11 years. We cannot have the vote under the United States Constitution because Porto Rico is neither a State nor a territory, but a dependency. We must wait for our own legislature to act." Here another member broke in: "The Legislature always says 'Tomorrow tomorrow tomorrow,' but never todav." "We feel our mission has been a success," said Signora de Hostos. because since our visit to Washington the president of our Senate has presented a bill giving women suffrage. It is the first time that our association has sent a delegation to Washington, but another group of suffrage women sent a delegation to Cuba to the Pan-American Congress." Conferences in Washinston. At Washington the women had conferences with Senator Willis of Ohio and Representative, Kiess of Pennsylvania, chairman of Committee on Insular Affairs, and with the Porto Rican resident commissioner, Gordova Davila. The women said: "If we can get the vote we could give the men an example of how to meet the responsibility of the vote. Men vote in the island, but many of them can neither read nor write. Women are very anxious to get the vote." Mrs. Leach in greeting" the women offered them her congratulations on their energy for suffrage and wished them an early victory. The delegation included with the president and secretary Mrs. M. Skerrett, Mrs. C, Cordova, and Dr. L Perezmarchand, a physician. PARENTS OF P.

Great Men Made Their Mark In Early Manhood, Says Pastor "If you examine history closely you will find that most great men accomplished their most important deeds in early manhood," said the Rev. Dr. Charles Carroll 'Albertson, pastor of Lafayette Avenue Presbyterian Church, last night in an address on "Youth in History" before the annual meetins of the Young People's Association of the church held at the parish house, Lafayette ave. and S. Oxford st. The meeting marked the termination of the 60th year of the association, which claims the distinction of being the oldest organization of its kind in the boro. Among the specific examples Dr. Albertson cited to support his statement were Alexander the Great, who at 33, had conquored Asia; Napoleon, who was a general of the French Army at 27, and emperor of France at LAWYER PROTESTS . FEE REQUIREMENT Clerk Replies That Bad Check Less Forced Certifying Rule. F. R. Serri, a Brooklyn attorney, has written to The Eagle protesting because the chief clerk of the' 5th District Municipal Court refuses to accept uncertified $1.50 checks from lawyers for filing summonses. Declaring that this is the only Municipal Court in Brooklyn where such procedure is insisted upon, he asks: "Why should the short-sightedness of a clerk impose this colossal annoyance, inconvenience and waste upon so many people?" Chief Clerk J. J; OXeary said today at the court, 5,220 3d ave.. that he has been forced to take such action. Last year, he declared, several lawyers' checks were returnd marked "no funds" and two or three came back marked "no account." Court cleiics, he added, are responsible for the moneys filed with them and if the clerks in other courts choose to risk bad checks it is up to them. Mr. O'Leary said he published notice of his ruling in the Law Journal several days before he enforced it, and that if lawyers object to certify the checks they may pay in cash or with money orders. Compulsory Auto Insurance As Ambulance-Chasing Cure Compulsory automobile insurance is the cure for the ambulance-chasing evil, John F. Heffernan, secretary to Supreme Court Justice Isasc M. Kap-per of the Appellate Division and vice president of the 7th A. D. Democratic Club, told members of the Mapleton Regular Democratic Club of the 16th A. D. at a meeting last night at the clubhouse, 6408 20th ave. Mr. effernan was speaking of the need for passing such legislation as the Compulsory Automobile Insurance Bill, which was introduced in the State Senate on Feb. 8 after Governor Smith had recommended such a measure in his special message to the Legislature on Jan. 9. The bill is now in the Finance Committee of the Senate. "Where you have compulsory Insurance of this kind there is only a nominal fee that the lawyer can get." Mr. Heffernan pointed out. "No attorney ever touches a workman's compensation case, where his total fee would only be something like $30. With compulsory automobile insurance in effect, the claimant would deal right with the State. Thus your ambulance-chasing contingent fee is gone." SINCLAIR SCANDALS SCORED BY WOMAN Mrs. Earl Francis Whitaker, speaking on current events at the Hotel Bosscrt yesterday, scored the "continued complaceny" with which she said the Coolidge Administration and the press have regarded the Sinclair oil scandals. The nation owes a debt of gratitude to Senator Walsh and the late Senator LaFollette, she asserted, fcr their perseverance in ferreting out the truth. She expressed the hope that the public would not forget "this greatest scandal in the history of the country," but be alert to see that it is not repeated. Hostesses at the meeting were Mrs. John Ballou, Mrs. Alexander Gcts-mnr. Mrs. Robert A. Sewell and Mrs. William Horner. FAKE CENSUS TAKER ANNOYS WOMEN HERE Womon in the apartment house on Nostrand ave., between Beverly rd. and Tilden ave., yesterday afternoon were annoyed by a well-dressed young man about 30, who represented himself as a census agent, according to a complaint made today to The Ea?le. The man showed badge's and cards which appeared to the housewives to be official and ho insisted on coming In the apartments to write out his reports. He was apparently under the influence of liquor and made insulting remarks to the women. There Is no house-to-house census being taken In Brooklyn.

It is time that a definite course of study in good manners and right living should be put into the hands of every teacher in America, so that school children, learning it, would be able to "train up their parents in the way they should go," Miss Margaret Knox, principal of P. S. 15, Manhattan, declared yesterday at the national conference on character education in schools, being held at Columbia University. Miss Knox's declaration climaxed a session in which educators of public, private and parochial systems described the steps now being taken in the school room toward character development. She focussed the light of criticism for lack of character development squarely on the American home, which, she declared, had re- i fused to shoulder its responsibility to tne young generation. Bad Example Given. Because American parents are themselves practicing and countenancing acts which warp a child's idea of morality and ethics, she said, the schools must take the responsibility of educating children in these spiritual matters. Churches, she added, dare not teach them, for fear of the interference of creedal differences. In reiterating her plea for the establishment of courses in good manners and right living she laid the onus of criticism on American homes. Dr. Frank J. Arnold, district superintendent of Brooklyn schools, described the specific steps being taken toward character development in New York. Frivate School Methods Tcld. Frank S. Hackett, headmaster ot the Riverdale Country School for Boys at Riverdale, N. Y., described the work in private schools, with the Rev. Dr. W. P T.nwinr cmoHnf ani ent of parochial schools, northern aiocese oi New Jersey, giving the Catholic method. Seven Brooklyn schools were thrown open yesterday afternoon to members of the conference so that the functioning of character building organizations in them might be observed. They were P. S. 80, 64. 118. 47, 181, 50 and the Brooklyn Boys Continuation School. france key to peace in europe:, says moone France today is the central figure in the question of peace or war in Eurone.

The height of the strife is shown above. , Even Appellate Court Swayed By Sympathy in Murder Cases, Former Prosecutor Charges Sympathy for defendants in murder cases is "rampant," not only among juries and trial Judges but also extends to "supposed cool, deliberate appellate judges who sit in Albany, far from the trial court, and read only a record and hear only the arguments of counsel." This criticism of the administration of the criminal law in capital cases in New York State was made last night by former Assistant District Attorney Thomas P. Peters in the course of a cVbate on the question ''Shall Capital Punishment Bs Abolished?" at the 21st A. D. Repub-iiran Club. 2143 Church ave. The former county prosecutor, who made the main argument on the negative side of the question, was opposed by former Assistant District Attorney Marshal Snyder. Maurice Rappaport was a member of the affirmative team and George W. Mc-Kcnzie Jr. supported Mr. Peters in upholding the negative. Cites Specific Case. Ex-Assistant District Attorney Peters did not confine his criticism of the Court of Appeals to generalities but specifically cited the decision of the court in the case of the People against Barberi. He said in part: Sympathy Rampant "Then, too; sympathy is rampant with juries, trial judges yes, and even supposed cool, deliberate ' Appelate Judges who sit in Albany, far from the trial court, and read only a record and hear only the arguments of counsel. If you do not believe this, get some lawyer to let you read the opinion in People vs. Barberi. the case of the Italian girl who deliberately armed herself with a ra-wr and cut the Jugular vein of her faithless lover, and whose conviction was reversed because the judges in Albany could not determine why she armed herself with a razor. Courts Are Weak. "Our courts are weak, vacillating instruments, but this is no criticism of capital punishment. Have innocent men been executed? They may FLATLANDS CIVICS PROTEST TAXI STAND The parking of half a dozen taxi cabs on Glenwood rd., between Nostrand and Flatbush aves. was described as a menace to public safety at a meeting of the Flatlands Civic Association at 1516. Flatbush ave., iast night. Nostrand ave. is a one-way street at this point and all the traffic must turn into Glenwood rd. where the presence of six taxicabs parked in the middle of the street by police permit make it difficult tot pedestrians to see approaching automobiles. Many slight accidents and narrowly averted smashups, which might have been more serious, wera spoken of at last night's meeting. The association decided to ask the Police Department to revoke the permit. Announcement was mada that the Police Department had refused tho association's request that Glenwcod and Farragut rds. be made one-way streets. A letter from Lt. Kane of the Traffic Department, giving the Department's viewpoint, stated that since the streets in question were 42 feet wide the Department did not think the traffic heavy cnotiRh to warrant their change Into one-way streets. The association has contended that Glenwood rd. is the main thoroughfare into the eastern section of Flatbush. which is a factory dls-'rlct, and that the change should bs made to turn more of the traffic onto Farrattut rd. Louis Q iick presided at the meeting. VIEW BAHAI film Three hundred persons nt the Bnhal headquarters at 110 W. 57th St..

"In India, when a man-killing tiger leaves the Jungle and begins to prey upon human beings, the countryside, in self-defense, goes out and hunts the tiger to his death. So must society do here. When there is a deliberate, cunning, deadly man or woman, who -has taken human life, the State must protect itself." Former Assistant District Attorney Snyder insisted there has been a ten-e'ency through the ages away from capital punishment. The human race has an inherent dislike of capital punishment, he said. "Capital punishment is a direct and. positive violation of God's law," Mr. Snvder argued. j. Arthur Hilton, president of the 21st A. D.

Dr. Mims posed the question in a lecture yesterday afternoon at the Academy of Music, held under Brooklyn Institute auspices.

VOGUE FOR CORAL GAINING POPULARITY Fashion Decrees Colorful Stones de Rigeur for Milady. Coral is the sensation of the spring. It has come back with a suddenness that has surprised the Jewelers of Paris and New York and thrown the scintillant stones out of favor in a way which has startled even the people who pride themselves on knowing in advance what the jewelry styles are to be. according to representatives of the National Jewelers Association. Real coral is being sought for in the shops, and any woman possessing a set which belonged to her grandmother is accounted lucky. Turquiose and Jade are next in favor. The prevalent craze for color in house and clothes even pink, blue and yellow bed sheets are being featured in the department stores is believed to explain the sudden falling off in the popularity of crystal, which held sway all winter. To combine with beige, gray, dark blue and black, the four colors Paris is sponsoring for spring wear, the coral, jade or turquoise jewelry is equally good. In the realm of costly stones emeralds remain first favor- 'tepale coral combined with pearls make effective necklaces for day and informal evening wear. Jade with pearls strike a new note. Pale colored costumes are effective when worn with deeper color earrings or necklaces. '"rv,ie rw-nit ouninsf dullness and it Anlmlnatinn in the cult Of smart- np has Rwune to an ominous ex treme." he declared. "Smartness at any price is the chief aim of the rs-volters until the revolt against con vention has become a convention oi revolt." Acknowledges Right to RebeL Dr. Mims acknowledged the right to rebel against dullness. "Who that has felt its militant sting in our Main Streets does not sympatnize wiui those striving against it?" he asked. "But the trouble is too many people want to make dullness synonymous with sanity, respectability, compromise as a point of view in practical statesmanship, virtue, marality end religion."

STIRES PLEADS FOR BORO CHURCH Challenges Members to Awake to Responsibilities. Bishop Ernest M. Stires last night issued a challenge, to the church members of Brooklyn to awake to the responsibility of living in the "City of Churches." He preached at a community Lenten service at the Tompkins Avenue Congregational Church, Tompkins ave. and Mac-Donough st., before a congregation composed of representatives of all the churches in the Bedford section. The Rev. Dr. J. Percival Huget, pastor "f the Tompkins Avenue Church, conducted the service. "There are more churches and more church members in Brooklyn than ever before." the Bishoo de clared, "but the high designation of a iity oi cnurcnes is less usea man formerly. Has there been a decrease in intensity with the increase in x tensiveness? Like a Mighty Army. ' 'Like a mighty army moves the Church of God' is a pious hope and nothing else today, for there is nothing victorious in the progress of the modern church. It has motion without fretting anywhere. How long do you think the church would have lived if the early Christians had made no more sacrifices for religion than we do now? There is not much danger of a man today being put to death for his faith in Christ, but the slow death of living without Christ is coming to thousands of church members. They worship a ceremony a plan of procedure instead of Christ. Katzenstein Appointed To Succeed McTigue Mayor Walker has appointed a successor to the late John G.
