Presiding Justice of Municipal Courts Elected Grand Master at Atlantic City Convention.


Says Great Body of Jewish Citizenry Will Always Support Our Institutions.

Special to The New York Times.
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J., May 17.-A message from President Harding, read this afternoon by Grand Master Gustave Hartmann, New York, at the closing session of the Independent Order of B'rith Abraham, in convention at the Steel Pier, brought a great demonstration from the thousand delegates present. The letter follows:

"My Dear Judge Hartmann: Your telegrams of May 12 finds me confronted with so much public business that I am compelled to express my regrets at being unable to participate in the convention of the Independent Order of B'rith Abraham at Atlantic City. Were it possible, I should take much pleasure in personally presenting my greetings and assurance of good-will and esteem to the representatives of a great section of our Jewish population.

"Our large and patriotic Jewish population has ever stood as testimony to the success of our institutions of democracy and universal toleration. Those institutions have earned for our country the devoted loyalty of all classes among our citizens, have made possible our equality of human opportunity, and in turn deserve the unqualified support of all Americans. I know that from the great body of Jewish citizenry they will at all times have that support.
Very truly yours,
"Warren G. Harding."

Judge Aaron Levy, Chief Judge of the Municipal Court of New York City, was elected Grand Master over Max Silberstein also of New York. Max L. Hollander of New York was unanimously elected Secretary, Adolph Stern, New York, First Deputy Grand Master, and Julius Friedenburg, Boston, Second Deputy.

The Grand Master suggested that the order should make its contributions to Palestine by voluntary subscriptions of the individual lodges. The convention, by formal resolution, disapproved of the attacks by Henry Ford's newspaper. The restrictive immigration bill was also condemned.
