He will make his only appearance in Columbus, at the East High School Auditorium, on Tuesday, Jan. 20, at 8:00 P. M. Mr. Schwartz will present here a series of selections from his most famous plays in addi¬ tion to a wholly new repertoire of dramatic and numerous sketches and songs In Yiddish, Hebrew and English. He will be ably assisted by Miriam Rubini, the well-known Argentine sing¬ er of folk songs and Sonya Stat¬ in, the talented pianist. International Artists, spon¬ sors ot Mr. Schwartz's tour an¬ nounce that they have received innumerable requests from neighboring towns for Mr. Schwartz's services. However, Maurice Schwartz's schedule does not permit him to make a single stop other than those specifically arranged and plan¬ ned beforehand. The legion of admirers of the eminent artist who reside in outlying towns are therefore urged to come to the city and patronize Mr. Schwartz's only concert in this region. The tremendous Interest that has been aroused In Maurice B'nai B'rith Goal In Defense Bonds In Sight As the Chronicle goes to press, over $00,000.01) in defense bonds is reported by lien Yenkin,- chairman of tlie R'nai B'rlth De¬ fense Bond commitlee. The pro¬ ject, started onlv two weeks ago by Zion Lodge No. fi2, li'nai B'rith has already received the whole-hearted cooperation of many individuals in the Jewi.sh community and numerous or¬ ganizations. Among the organi¬ zations which have subscribed for defense bonds during the past week are the following;— Agudath Achim Sisterhood, Ladles FVee Loan Society, Vol¬ iner Society, B'rlth Sholem Lodge, Excelsior Club. Announcement Is also being made that the B'nai B'rlth Aux Iliary has joined the men's lodge In the sales promotion of these government securities which, after all, will go to prose¬ cute the war loward a success¬ ful conclusion. Mr. Yenkin wishes to Inform all those who have signed up for defense bonds that their ap¬ plications have all been turned over to the postofflce depart¬ ment. If there is any delay In your receiving these bonds, he said, it Is due entirely to the gov¬ ernment being swamped with orders for them, thus falling he-' hind in its delivery schedule.
