MASTERS' DRAWINGS PUT ON EXHIBITION Collection' in Knoedler Galleries Includes Examples by Americans RODIX NTTDES SHOWN National Arte Club Places on Beview Works by Paintcr-Heinbers. JL collection of original drawing by tauten both American and European," to quote from the catalome, la on publlo iihlbltlon In the Knoedler Galleries, Americana ara not quite ao free In their lie of the term "Viaster" as are Ku-ropeans, and there la a general hesitation here to employ the word at all In the rase of contemporaries but It I d!t-Icult to nee wherein the harm of the custom lies, especially alnce the exact value ctven to the word by our French ilUea Is no well known. If It li a help to the our arttata the benefit of the doubt, by all means let us call them "masters." In any case their drawings aro highly litereatlne;, and It affords a deslrablo chance for comparison to fee them upon the same walla with drawings by Dau-it.r. Delacroix. Corot, Constantin, Guys, Icrres. Charlea Keene and Rodin. The Qodln drawings are nudes, aa usual, and exhibit the familiar flowing, rhythmic outlines. The poses are so contorted that the artist Is almost open to the suspicion that he was seeking a poso rather than mi Idea: but there is never any uoudi that they are the work of a "master." The "Captured Tyrolean" by Charles Keene has the charm that Is usually to e found In his drawings, and the two works by Guys so vivacious that they In spite of the touches of carica ture or possibly because of them, the perfume of rarls. Florida Jferra Drawings. The nczro drawings made In Florida y Jules I'ascln held their own In this irllllant company, and tho Incised lines and clear color washes give the effect of spontaneity and realism both to people and landscape. William Orpen's nude has as much Intellectual observation In It as a nudo by the late John La Farge, and the drawings by Augustus John have a big and decorative sweep. Among the chosen American masters ore: Paul Burlln, Hunt Dlederlch. William Olackeim. Itockwell Kent, Leo Mlel-tiner. John Sloan. Maurice Sterne. Al bert Sterner and Mahonrl Young. The drawings by Mr. Dlederlch nre simplified to a marked degree, and are scarcely so convincing aa his simplified sculptures. The drawings take arbitrary curves that will bo considered affected by many; and there are those who will also consider his lines hard. Tho "Landscape," with horses, by Ma-kenrl Young, ea excellently composed and among the best of hla drawings. Painting by I.athrop. In the Fathered Gallery a number of paintings by William I Lathrop are ex-nosed. Tho same quiet, modest appeal to nature runs throughout all the can- vises, which are painted In a gray, Dutch manner for the most part. The color Is always good and tho technique Is always equal to Jhe theme. It is apparent that the artist haa known In advance lust how his effect will work out. and the fact that the artist knew how It was coming out ex plains doubtless the extreme coolness of the manner. Miss Rosamond Coney and Miss Alice Hirsch. who have a Joint exhibition in the Arlington Galleries, are not nearly so cool as Mr. Lathrop, nor, for that matter, so certain. They both employ Tedltahle palettes, however, and have n enthusiasm in studying running waters fr"m the city- docks and In posing their friends for portrait studies that will awaken an envloua streak In tho bosoms of their rival artists. The annual exhibition of work by painter members In the gallory of the National ArU Club haa had the effect of calling attention to the work of Glfford ueai. ror to him waa given the 11.000 prise. To be sure, the landscape that won this handsome sum for Mr. Seal la not particularly distinguished and might hare been done by any one of a dozen contemporary Americana that could be named; but the award will give general pleasure because Mr. Beat In other paintings recently ah own to New Yorkers haa given evidence of decided progress In his It. The present picture Is r winter landscape showing a big red mill from which a stream of water escapes, forming Into blue pools. Tha aufclaot l fha anrt that Thautaw and other arttata hart exploited ana it seems almost Impossible to squeeze any further realism from It. At least Mr. Beals haa not don so. Hanging right next to the prise winner Is an attractive but not strong land-soap by Everett L. Warner. Helen M. Turner, sent a canvas fun of pleasant color, called "Sandra In the Garden." but the gown of "Sandra" might have, had a trifle more form to the betterment of the work. , Hayley Lever large "Drying Sails at St. Ives, Cornwall, England," is not ob-Jectlonally composed, and the color Is not bad, but the drawing of the hull and the alls of the ship Is unnecessarily cavalier. The pictorial effect of "Las Mano-4as" by F. Luis Mora Is atronger than anything by this painter that has recently been shown, but there Is still considerable woodlnesa In the textures, particularly In the lace mantillas and the skirts. "Trying on Her Glove" by Oscar Feh-rer. has the special kind of cleverness that used to be admired, before the war. upon tho covers of "Jugend." In the present caso Mr. Fehrefa figure would be quite acceptable If the face only had more life.

William Plerson (Merrill, pastor of the Brick Presbyterian Churrh. I'iflh avenue and Thirty-seventh street, paused In- the midst of the services celebrating the 150th anniversary of the church yesterday to ask the great congregation to report at once any surplus coal owned by tho membership In order that It might be distributed to the needy and poor. This action tras perhaps the most typical thing that took place during the celebration of the church's birthday. The Rev. Henry van Dyke, D. D., formerly Ambassador to Holland and once a pas tor of the church, preached the sermon of the day. "Olorloua Things of Thee Arc Spoken," an anthem by the pastor, was the feature of the special musical programme. The edifice was crowded to Its utmost capacity. "The pride, the greed, the ambition, the treachery, the arrogance of Imperial Germany," paid Dr. van Dyke In hla sermon, "have plunged the world Into misery. That is what we are fighting against. Let us accept no peace that does not mean the defeat of the enemy." v Dr." van Dyl:e snoko of the patriotic part that the Brick Church had always taken in the affairs or the country, in the afternoon Dr. Merrill spoke, and on Thuraday night there will be another celebration Itv which the laymen win nke nart. The Brick Clmrcn maintains in pari two other churches Christ Church ,on the West and the Church of the Cove- ant on the nat. The unique feature Is that those churches among the poor aro not chapels, afterthe usual manner, but uffillated congregations,' standing on a level with the parent church on Firth acnue. and officially represented In nreffbytery and elsewhere. The relation cntimi nnu cnapei tioes not oinain. The Brjc.i; Church dates from 17BS and for forty year was a part of the old Firs', church. It formerly stood at Beekmnn street and Park Bow. w hen bulnes game to Thirty-seventh ctreet end Fifth avenue, as It .had formerly come to Park Row. there was discussion f a possible removal. But It waa soon brought to an end. in common with St. Bartholomew's Episcopal and somo other churches in the Murray Hill district, the Brick Church determined to make Itn location a permanent one, and egan the accumulation of an endow ment fund. There Is -at present In this fund ana nromlsed for It about $730,000. and the officers feel that within a short time It will reach $1,000,000. The expense ror maintenance of' the Brlch Church Itself s $S0.000 a year, and for tne two amn- ated churches $23,000. Pastors' of tne cnurcn, one or tne oest known lnthe Presbyterian denomination, have Included the Rev. Dn Henry van Dyke, who preached yesterday ; the Rev. Dr. Maltble D.

VW.nUNKCAMPlELL Two novelties a-raced the programme of the Symphony Society's concert In Aeolian Hall yesterday afternoon. One was the A major symphony of Kalllnl- Kov and the other the violin concerto vi Jeno Hubay, with Efrcm Zimbalist as the solo performer. Also Walter Dam-rosch sang a song, but that was' not down on the programme. It was the Russian folksong whose theme Is the root of the sympnony and Mr. Damrosch sang It for the Information of the audience. Of course after that every one recognized the theme the instant It appeared. ' It was very busy appearing, too, for Kalltnlkov uml It as a germinal Idea, building all of his movements on it by causing It to return In new manifestations. Incarnations, relnstrumentatlons, rcharmonlzatlons, rhythmic trarwmo&rlfl-cations and all the other delicacies of thematic development and variation. This portentous account might lead the reader to the mistaken supposition that this Is a symphony of tho kind customarily described as mueiclanly and skilfully made. It Is all that, but fortunately It Is more. It Is of all things not a profound work. It Indulges In no soarings after the unsearchable or divings after the unfathomable, but Just bubbles over with good humor and Infectious spirit. It Is not highly original, for one can hear in It a little Puccini and a little Dellbes, but then one can hear "Tristan und Isolde" in the Hubay concerto. Tho charm of the symphony, and It has a potent one, lies In Its spontaneity, its rollicking moods, its tunefulness and tho Immense spirit with which It Is written. It ought to be heard again, and probably will be. Mr. Zimbalist has not been heard very lately and he wns accorded a warm wel come. It Is not difficult to appreciate the attraction which this Hubay con certo had for him. It Is first of all some thing new, and violin concertos that seem likely to stay with us for a tlmo are scarce. In tho second place It I." tremendously difficult, and that In ways which afford opportunities for brilliant performance clearly communicated to the hearer. Some pieces are very difficult in such ways that an audience docs not suspect It. Thirdly, the concerto has In Its first movement a certain dramatic force and In Its slow one some pages of genuine lyrla beauty. Mr. Zimbalist played the work nd-mlrably. Its preparation must have cost him many an hour of earnest study and It la doubtful whether he will ever be richly repaid. Tho work contains many arid pages and much matter that Is merely opaque. There la an -nnecessary parade of difficulties at the expense of beauty. The violin after all Is noblest sings lyrically. The audience was generous In Its ap plause yesterday. The violinist was re called several times and his hearers evi dently wished to show Mm that they understood what a prodigious effort he had made to please them. , which aro already many and In vailed forms, are practically unknown In America except a suite, opus 6. and the "sketches" . which the Zoellners have played this season while on tour, Tho composition heard yestceday Is In two divisions, "By the Tarn," a description of, tho mingling ot the waters in a pool or marsh fed by trickling waters, but with no visible Inlet and "Jack o lantern," or "the playthings of tho moving air at night" Both sketches are short and written in a highly modem French style. Dissonances abound and difficult harmonies are made use of In depleting the subjects. With all their lack, save very little, of melodlo beauty, they Interested through their oddness in vivid instrumental color and were warmly applauded, The Zollners played them well, better. In fact than they did either of tha classic numbers, where there was too orten an Insufficient perclslon in aitacK and an Intonation not always) true. As a whole, however, their ensemble has life and much grace to commend It At the close the Zoellners had to give an encore, and so played a short number.

The taking over of the railroads by the Government end the restriction of their use to eaeen-tials, It waa explained, makes it Impossible for tho production, which requires a special train. Including eight baggage cars and a box car for tho twenty horses used In the chariot race, to continue with Its present seuson's plans, "We close this organization for the tlmo being very reluctantly," said a statement lsued yesteiday. "It Is a very big company and a great many peo-plo will be thrown out of employment, but travelling has become too uncertain nnd already many of our companies have missed owning performances. Wo can not get any advance assurances that the large equipment necessary to transport this' production will be forthcoming when needed nnd projected governmental plans for tho railroads as announced make It qulto clear to us that It will be Impossible, to continue the organization on Its present scale. "To give a proper presentation of Gen. Wallaco's beautiful story In a small way Is Impossible at the present time, although later on, perhaps, somo Inventive genius may enable us to do this. Ben Hur" never will wear out, however, and we shall resume Its tour as soon as conditions are favorable for tho proper fulfilment of contract" FENIMORE COOPER T0"wTJE.

LOUIS 24 I IB Have you ever stopped to consider how you personally feej toward the Germans and German Americans of your acquaintance? Have you given any thought to the question of your attitude toward the individual German and Germany as a whole? . "It's your war, by thunder and don't you forget it," says Harry Lauder. YOUR boys are in France, already fighting the Hun. YOUR daughters are there to nurse the sick and the wounded. Any harm that comes to them will come through Germany and the Germans. Is a good natured tolerance of things Teuton just the attitude you really want to hold against the arch enemy of your country? t It would be barbarous and un-American to cultivate toward the Prussians the feeling, exemplified in the "Hymn of Hate," they have for us. But there is a happy and just medium. Have you reached it? This is something to think about indeed. The whole situation if laid before your eyes and a real incentive to self-examination on this important problem is given in an unusually interesting article In Next Sunday's Sun I1 'I it.
