FOR STUDENTS' USE
Beautiful Long Island Estate
to Become Art Center.
GENEROUS GIFT PRINCELY
Dr. Stanley Lathrop of American
Academy at Rome to Carry Out
Mr. Tiffany's Ideas.
NEW YORK. The gift of Louis Tif
fany, whereby he has turned over to
ao many promising students of art for
to many months of the year the re
treats and the recesses of his estate
at Cold Springs Harbor, provokes the
Inquiring tongue as well as the less
active intellect. There are so many
angles and approaches to the perilous
peak of art, so many of them well
trammeled and beaten down by the
conventions of ages, that any newly
opened road subjects itself to imme
Just what will this new bequest or
this fresh encouragement do for art in
America about which more and more
people, as this nation waxes richer in
automobiles and landed estates, are
fretting themselves. A generous and
princely thing of Mr. Tiffany, but
who is he to take away from the ar
tist the precious heritage of starva
tion? What great man has ever
achieved greatness without an ado
lescent discipline of mouldy crusts,
cheap wine and an Arctic garret? Art
too, the new art of this western world,
must be at least they Bay it must be
something wrought out of the
harshness and the crudity of this
splendidly dreadful continent.
If the young have not daubed their
ouls or temperaments those lacking
one may possess the other in the
smoke of purgatorial Pittsburg, if
they know not the speed of life at 6
o'clock on an uptown express, it they
have not starved their spirits in Chi
cago or seen blood spilled in Seattle,
they have not known the world which
their brushes must reincarnate some-
are to be the great American masters,
how on the canvas. That is, if they

and by no other Mr. Tiffany's wood
ed isolation, in one of the nicest
pieces of Long Island scenery, will
not produce them. There are no bare
Long Island City flats adjacent to en-
sender somehow the stark pictures
which sometimes come from the brush
angered by an ugly world. No, Mr.
T.iifany s selected group of the young
and promising they must hover be
tween the ages of 18 and 30 will
have nothing but beauty about them
to provoke their creation. There will
be the natural beauty of that partic
uiar piece or country, and the re
sources of Sir. Tiffany's own home.
wnicn contains not merely his own
collection of paintings and sculpture
and favrlle glass, hut much more than
that. It is Louis Tiffany's house and
every room, every window, everv
tirepiace has been conceived and
made by his particular genius. In
this place approximately 70 or SO
students, to be chosen and installed
there by next spring, are to live for
several months or longer, if they
snow promise. They are not to be
taught art according to this or that
sort of principles, so much as they
are to be given a chance to develop
whatever latent fire there may be
The Tiffany Art foundation will set
up no Long Island academy. Dr.
Stanley Lothrop, late of the Ameri
can Art academy at Rome, who is in
direct charge of the execution of Mr.
Tiffany's plan, axplained in a few
words exactly what Mr. Tiffany had
in nis mind when he created the foun
dation. "You must not think for ;
moment that Mr. Tiffany is opposed
to, or discredits the value of the
academy or the art school, here or
abroad. In his extension of the
privileges of this Tiffany foundation
to art students, he had in mind men
wno nave Deen xnrough all or part
ot mat training, and who have shown
capacity for and promise in their in
dividual work. Our first membership
is limited; and we cannot accept
women students because we cannot
make the necessary alterations in
the buildings at present. It is need
less to say that we have been deluged
by applications, however .from botb
men and women students."
Judgti' Face Problem.
Just how the fortunate three or
four score are to be chosen out of
this horde. Dr. Lathrop didn't know.
The judges are competent enough, and
they will consider philosphically the
unsuppressed originality, fiery explo
siveness, past production and future
promise of every anxious young man.
Dr. Lothrop doesn't know yet whether
the radicals and the truly obstreper
ous of the young school will be wan
dering about the Long Island terrain,
coloring the neighborhood with their
conversation and costumes as well as
their canvases; but there isn't going
to be any prejudice against a person
simply because he has made your
eyes sore at the last show of the In
dependent Artists. It would be very
interesting to see what could be done
with this younger school, having pro
vided them with the usually absent
environment of leisure and beauty
against which to wash In their soul's
"Wat Mr. Tiffany wants to provide
en his estate," continued Dr. Lathrop,
"is an atmosphere and a chance rather
than a set training. The MacDowell
l'oundtion has done somewhat the
same thing for writers, but I don't
think any one has ever done it before
for artists. The men chosen will have
the groundwork of their technical
training, they will have passed
thTongh the academic part of their
work: As they begin to develop their
own style and method, however, they
cannot but 'be benefited by contact
and talk with the painters and the
masters of every school. Mr. Tiffany
is not confining his venture to mere
painting and sculpture. What Mr.
Tiffany has done in the making of
.stained glass and his own favrile
glass and his work in the setting of
preotous stones and the handicraft
of Jewelry will all be put at the dis
posal of students of the industrial
arts. Whatever there is to know
nbout these things they will be shown
They will not merely be encouraged
to develop their own designs, but
they will be enabled to learn all that
there is to learn about the actual in
dustrial and scientific processes by
which these things are made. '

Mr. Tiffany's greatest contribution to
its art has been a stained glass which
is recognized as the most perfect in
the history of time.
The glass of Chartres and Notre
Dame is more storied and sainted

laurels from Mr. Tiffany's. Now

To get back to the theory that
hunger makes the artist let us begin
by refuting it. Dr. Lathrop doesn't
believe that hunger has very much
to do with the functioning of genius,
and any experienced eater at any
Greenwich Village pastry shop can
tell, from the talk passed over the
glass-topped tables, just who and what
in the great professions are eating
80-cent breakfasts at 12 o'clock. A
great deal of nonsense has been
talked about the necessity of starving
the body, or rather the acceptance of
the fact that the preliminary and ab
ject starvation must precede the
emergence from rags and the gutter
into me warmth of fame and food.
That may have been true on the con
tinent, if one can imagine a Latin
getting along without his strungout
if sustaining dejeuner. Besides a
great deal of the supposed squalor
of the continental great man is mere
ly another way of living, a non-acquaintance
with, an ignorance of such
things as white painted 'hallways and
tiled bathtubs. The ladles of the
novels of Zola were always shivering
before the fire, and then were rich
girls at that. It wasn't the same cold
and the greater thirst and the pangs
of hunger, however, that made Ver
laine the poet that he was. Destiny

section, is nearing completion -and
will be opened about -the middle of
February, according to present plans.
The structure is of three stories, of

Dr. G. A. Massey, all practicing phy

told about the inner and rottener side
of this glorious world. She exasper
ated him with the world she put
around him and he wrote almost to
Comfort No Drawback.
It might almost appear, then, as if
you did no harm by making the ar
tists and the poets comfortable. For
you are mistaken if you believe that
the great men of the old days when
the other world was more important
than this, and one's guardian angel
stalked along beside even the strong
est of saints to ward off the threaten
ing devils, were at all interested in
the idea of starving themselves into
greatness. They wanted fame and
comfort and a place in the Popes
palace1; but the sooner the better.
They painted many and beautiful an
gels all over the walls and ceilings of
Italy, but they were no less prepared
to take and get the world as they
found it. That is the way you are
when you are convinced of the cer
tainty of heaven; these blue skies
and pleasant places at which to eat
are not here merely for the looking
at, since God made the world for man.
So that the people who worry lest
Mr. Tiffany's Foundation may make it
too comfortable for the young who
might otherwise be finding their souls
in cheap cafes God save the mark
or in the hall room studio, are run
ning down a blind alley. The more
leisure and talk and sympathy given
the sensitive hand and mind of the
next Velasquez, the better it will be
for our little grandchildren who must
be dragged about to museums. This,
today's world, may be velveter and
ostermoored, and there are certainly
too many fur coats and chow dogs on
the avenue, but great men will go on.
The bearded and unkempt youth, the
spotted velvet coat are pretty impos
sible in a time when the water
plunges like the Atlantic in every flat
house bathtub and when grade school
teachers won't allow even the embry
onic plumber his destined dirty finger
nails. Old men whose only pilgrim-
ge is Is holes around the links may
decry the softness of a. new and high
art conceived against the soft luxury
of a country house background, but
was it not George Moore who moaned
on about art falling into a .twilight
of decay once she had got out among
the common and noisy masses? And

ground floor are the business of
fices, doctors' and specialists' rooms.
X-ray room, laboratory, pharmacy
and reception room. On the second
floor all medical cases will be cared
for, with provisions made for accom
modating 20 patients. Surgical cases
will be handled on the third floor,
three large operating rooms being
provided. Up-to-date equipment and
surgical appliances will be installed.
A feature of the hospital will be a
pharmacy, where prescriptions for
patients will be filled. This will be
in charge of Frank B. Robinson,
local pharmacist. The fixtures of the
hospital are of mahogany, and heat
will be supplied from the new city
heating plant, recently installed to
serve the downtown district. An
automobile ambulance has been pur
chased by the hospital management
and will be operated in conjunction
with the hospital.
"The First of Living Violinists"
' USICAL authorities of Europe and America "have not
hesitated to link the name of Jascha Heifetz with that
of Paganini. whose magic violin playing has come down
to us through the years, surrounded by a halo of amazing legend.
The reason for this comparison is apparent to all who have heard
Heifetz, for it is impossible to conceive agreater mastery , of the
instrument than this Russian genius exhibits. He has a technic,
as Mr. Henderson, the New York Sun critic, said, "that must
make him 'the despair of -all other violinists." Following his first
American appearance in Carnegie Hall two seasons ago the New
York World declared him to be a master whose equal this gen
eration will probably never meet again," and in over two hun
dred concerts since that time never has there been an instant when
his playing failed to reach the loftiest standards of the violin art.
"To undertake analysis of such playing seems futile," frankly
admits Mr. Sanborn of the New York Globe.

LONDON. British interests are
purchasing American goods to sell
the new Baltic states as part of their
plan to "get in on the ground floor"
commercially when turmoil in that
part of the world ceases.
The American Chamber of Com
merce in London understands that
Ksthonia has sold to Great Britain its
exportable surplus of timber for the
next 18 months in return for supplies
which Great Britain can not now
produce and which are bein pur
chased in the United States in order
that the contract may be carried out.
It is pointed out that 40 per cent of
Russian exports normally pass
through Lettish ports. The chamber
strongly advises American business
firms to try for some of this business.
