Unfortunately, it isn't always easy to determine whether copyrights were renewed. I'd begin by going to the Public Domain Chart linked from this site's home page and reading footnote 7 to the chart. The footnote contains links to various resources that might help you determine whether or not the 1923 copyright was renewed.
