Many tributes have been paid to a reat number of people who have Pen interested in community ac- tivity. Sunday, April 1, the Y. M. H. A. held a Cabaret Night. Aside from the fact that the decorations were novel, the Y Auditorium was still the same building that many young Jewish men and women have been enjoying themselves in. Yet the affair was very different from anything that has ever been held by the Y. M. H.A. It is true that the decorations were new and a great many people spoke their ad- miration about them. Few realized that it took four weeks of effort to create theses decorations and booths. The girls who acted as waitresses dressed in their very neat costumes, reminded many of the evenings that they had spent at some down-town cabaret The speed and the profes- sional manner in which they worked was remarked by many. There was not one complaint during the whole evening about these charming young enter the auditorium when he saw that help was needed in the canteen, took off his coat and went to work. He stayed on the job for over three hours. I have never seen Mr. Berrool in the Y. M. H. A. before. And now about the six boys who furnished the snappiest, peppiest dance music that the Y. M. H. A. has ever enjoyed in its 17 years of ex- istence. I-Ienry Edelson, the loader contracted to play till 12 o'clock. rhey played till l:30and how they did playr It is hard to describe the ac- tions of an orchestra. I can truth- fully say that never have I heard so I11 many comments as I did Sunday night ] ]i about our music. Many thanks are lll due to Brother Edelson and his gang for their efforts. Lewis Cohn, the chairman of the entertainment committee, spent more time preparing for Cabaret Night than he did in his own business. To him fell the task of arranging for the tables, dishes, food, entertainment, and everything else that helpcd make the night a success. I suppose that I could go along this way and express my thanks and ad- miration to many more who were in- strumental in making our affair a night of color and pleasure. ladies who served. That which pleased me most is that spirit of helpfulness that everyone t!l[hrre :rnvtcrrgerswe gdlsYlicl::; , :ntDdeitule tohe ,affalr dls,!layd - ,,, , i p sic people rn l, ne 000000U2pW'700gTL00700o5200 commm:ity.

How many people knew who the waitresses were? Few of them knew that they were our Junior Girl's Club, under the direction of Mrs. Joe compared to what they did.

Mr. Joe Kosokoff, our able secretary did not know how the hall looked until 12 o'clock Sunday night, having spent from 7 o'clock on assisting in pre- aring the food for the guests. Mr. errool, a man who had come up to enjoy himself, purchased his ticket to Mr. Charles Gregory, better known as the "Singing Soldier," made a great hit with the Cabaret patrons. Possessed of a sweet voice of great range and power, Mr. Gregory sang several natal)ere that were enthu- siastically acclaimed. We hope that Charles will sing for" us again. Jewish Builders Active inNew York ASPECT OF BROADWAY AND FIFTH AVENUE BE- ING TRANSFORMED BY NEW TALL STRUCTURES. New York--Manhattan's fa- mous skyline will be greatly changed by the new buff& ing peaks which will rise soon along Broadway and Fifth Avenue, many of them which are being erected by Jewish builders. Four of the largest office and commercial buildings under construction in Man- hattan this year form part of the $50,000,000 building program now under way by A. E. Lefcourt and his or- ganization. Two of these are office buildings, the Lefcourt Na- tional on the site of the old Temple Emanu-El, at Fifth Avenue and Forty-third St., and the International Tele- phone Building, covering the site of the old Consolidated Stock Exchange, at Broad and Beaver Streets, in the heart of the financial dis- trict. The other two, the Lefcourt Clothing Centre on Seventh Avenue from Twen- ty-fifth to Twenty-sixth Sts. and the Lefcourt-Norman- die, replacing the old Nor- mandie Hotel, will be loft buildings for men's and wo- men's wear manufacturing. These edifices replace some of the oldest landmarks in the city and the skyline in their section will be materi- ally affected on completion. The block of buildings just recently completed by Fred- erick Brown on Fifth Avenue from Fifty Seventh to Fifty Eighth Street, replace the former Vanderbilt Chateau, which formerly faced the fountain on the entrance to Central Park.

Average wage earnings during this period have fluctuated not more than four percent and employment has been steady. Are you taking advantage of this favorable economic condition? It means you should have more money to save. Although you are prosperous now, some unforeseen chance may reduce or eliminate your income. Then a sa/ings account in the Dexter Horton Na- tional Bank would be welcome. While wages are high, work plentiful and living costs down, is the time to save regularly.

A.)--The five Barmat brothers involved in the interna- tionally known sensational trim were acquitted today of charges of credit swindle. Two of the five brothers, however, Julius and Henry were sentenced to )risen terms on tire charge of bribery. Iulius was sentenced to eleven months mprisonment and Henry to six months. The opinion is expressed here gene- rally that the verdict was in the na- ture of a political compromise, as higher justice demanded their com- plete acquittal, after evidence was submitted that the Barmat affair was created by reactionary elements to serve their political purposes, and to ruin the Barmat banking in- terests. MOSCOW COMMUNITY CALLS NEW CHIEF RABBI Moscow--The dispute among var- ious factions in the Moscow Jewish community was settled by the ap- pointment of a new Chief Rabbi. Rabbi Malcikowski of Charkoff was called to the post. sermon and a feature will bc a lecture by Dr. Abba H. Silver. A discussion of the duty of the laity in the promo- tion of reformed Judaism, which will be led by Rabbi Louis I. Egclson, will undoubtedly have reflection in pulpit utterances in the congrega- tions after the Conference. Another subject of consideration by the assembled rabbis will be the attitude of the Jewish working man towards the synagogue. The ral)bis will discuss the growing tendency on the part of the working classes to find in sociological movements sub- stitutes for interest in and attendance on religious observances. Rabbi Louis Wolsey, 'of Philadel- phia, will present a paper on the his- torical relation of Judaism to labor, and a paper on the spiritual situation among Jewish working people in America will be offered by Israel Mufson, secretary of the American Federation of Teachers, and a mem- ber of the faculty of the Labor Col- lege of Philadelphia. "Roll r " 'g'ous Education Day wil be in charge of Dr. Louis I. Mann who is arranging an appropriate gram which inchldes special by Rabbi Morris Lazaron and Singer. The Central Conference of Ameri- can Rabbis is the largest and oldest rabbinical conference. It is a pio- neer among the rabbinical orgamza- tions and has been a model for the formation of other similar bodies.

Ene- low, New York City; l)r. Bavid Lef- kowitz, vice-president, Dallas, Texas; Morris Newlield, treasurer, Birm- ingham, Ale., Isaac E. Marcuson, recording secretary, Macon, Ga.; Joseph L.
