'LEGION GETS FLOOR IN VICTORY HALL Partial Apportionment of Space in $15,000,000 Struc turo Is Announced. GREAT HALL OP ALLIES JJcncon Would Burn Uncons-ingl- y in \Inner Shrino of Memory.\ A whole floor of Victory Hull, which, It Is proposed, shall be erected by pop- ular subscription at a cost of about 915,000,000, Is devoted to the American Legion, according to advanced plans for the bulldlna mode public yesterday by the Victory Hall Association, of which Gen. Oeorsro W. Wlncato Is president. The association says that as the le- gion Is made up entirely of the men In whoso honor Victory Hall Is planned, they havo the prior right to considera- tion. It Is therefore proposed to give them tho use of the fourth floor, 'about 400 feet by 200 feet, or 30,000 square feet Representatives of the legion will bo consulted as to the \layout.\ The tpaco will be given as nearly as posstblo rent free, beyond the cost of manage- ment and perhaps the furnishings. Tho tlfth floor plan provides for a hall 335 by 112 feet for the meetings, dances and entertainments of the Amer- ican Legion and other societies and of school children. Beneath tho balcony surrounding this hall Is a corridor gi In.? access to a number of rooms to be assigned to tho G. A. It, Loyal Legion and other groups who may require a central meeting room or' a memorln, chamber for their war records In a fireproof building. The plan of the basement has been changed so that It now provides for a Memorial Hall and Hall of Allies, thb remainder of the space to be thrown Into the drill hall or assembly room. The Hall of Allies, 200 feet long, would contain statues of the commanders of the Allied armies and the leading states- men of the nations with which the Uni- ted States was associated, besides tro- phies, flags and banners. From the eastern end of the Hall of Allies a doublo lntermural staircase would lend Into n lofty memorial hall or crypt seventy feet square, hewn from the rock which underlies the proposed site of (he building, between Forty-fir- st and Forty-secon- d streets and Park and Lox-Ingt- avenues. This, says the associa- tion. Is Intended to constitute the \Inner Shrine of Memory\ and to symbolUo the purpose of Victory Hall. Upon nn altar In Its centre would burn unceasingly a fire or beacon. This would \serve as an emblem of .he patriots In whose memory the hall Is erected and of the aspirations and Ideals for which they fought nnd served that shall be maintained from generation to generation to help create and keep alive a spirit of patriotism and In the hearts of our future citizens.\ The association announces that It has f , git -- j. 4r employed architects who, In the work, will be associated with eminent sculptors and mural painters. It says! 'The plan and scope have been so far carried out that It Is assured that Victory Hall will be an edifice of majestic dignity, the creation of the ablest talent and finest Inspiration which our country af- fords.\ COLLECTIONS TO-DA- Y FOR POOR CHURCHES Authorized by Archbishop for All Masses. In accordance with Instructions em- bodied In a circular letter sent to tho roctors of all the Itomnn Catholic churches In tho New Tork nrchdloccso by Archbishop Hayes, which was read last Sunday morning to the parishioners of these churches, the annual collection fojr home missions of New Tork will be taken up at the masses this morning. It Is expected that a goodly sum will he realized. . The proceeds will be used to assist the poor country parishes of tho archdiocese which are utterly unable to support themselves. That there are some such churches In the local archdiocese Is evi- dent from tho following, written by the Archbishop: \One of the hard duties for the Arch- bishop Is to send a pastor to n place where It Is Impossible for him to main- tain the little church and to secure a modest living on the offerings of the people there. It would surprlso many, no doubt, to learn-tha- t there arc priests of our own diocese who, year after year, fall to receive any allowance In the way of salary.\ PHILANTHROPIES NEED FUNDS. Jewish (locletle 'Will Lnunch Drive j Felix 51. Warburg, chairman nf the Federation for Support of Jewish Phllan-thopl- o Societies, announced yesterday that a drive for 11,700,000 will be launched This sum Is needed tq meet the Increased budgets of ninety, local Institutions affiliated with the fed- - eratlon. Mr. Warburg stated that the total amount required by these Institu- tions for 1920 would be 13,849,604. of which only $2,100,000 la met by the present annual pledges. The deficit Is due to Increased cost of maintenance. In order to safeguard the standards of the federation, ST. War-- burg eald, it win be necessary lor sub scrlbers to Increase their annual contrl butlons and enlist as many now subscrlb ers as possible. Snonr Drlsntle Seeks IlccrtilU.
