Bayly Interviewed Lonacharsky. Commi.ssar of Public Education, who is resiKinsible for Russian entertainments and who expresses the hope of an exchange of performers between Russia and Eng¬ land. Hitherto all British performers had to be booked thru Berlin agents, but Bayly sueceeded In op<'ning up direct communlcjttion between London and Mos¬ cow.

Bayly came back with a glowing ac¬ count of the artistic and social life in Moscow and Li'ningrad. He says there is every indication of progre.ssiveness in Ru.ssia's industrial and economic conditions.

Salary Dispute
San Francisco, June 7.--The final per¬ formance of Jane Cowl in Romeo and Juliet at the Curran Theater was halt<'d last night when an actors' strike was called by the Actors' Equity against Louis Macloon and sent the big audioni'' scurrying to the box office to get its money refunded.
Trouble arose between Macloon and Equity over a new play entitled One Trip of the Silver Star. It is understood that Macloon started rehearsals May 19. and June 1 posted a notice that the plav was called off but it is alleged failed to pay two we«-ks' compensation due, ac¬ cording to Equity rules.
Theodore Hale, attorney for Equity, served notice on the cast .shortly after 8 o'clock last night, just before the rise of the curtain.
At the Curran Theater it was stated today that the di-sagreement would not halt Macloon's I.ndy Be Good, which is scheduled for tonight.

Hollywood, June 6.*-An expenditiirp nf $1,500,000 will b« made by WaVI
producers, in connection with the construction of a first-run movie house to be known as Warner's Ho'lv\vr>od Theater. Harry M. Warner states that this theater is the first of a series planned In big cities whore the company has been unable to obtain a showing for its product. Tile Warners intend to lease or build theaters In all large cities where first-runs are now denied them.
The plans call for a structure much In the shape of the Woolworth Building In New York with a 150-foot steel tower rising from the roof. At the top of ihe tower there will be a revolving beacon light with a radius of seven miles and the tower will also include what are termed the largest chimes In the West, which will be oi^rated from the organ pit. The house, which will Include a balcony and will be of Gothic architecture, will scat about 3,000. The stage will contain a concealed tank on the order of the New York Hippodrome, which will be used for presentations. From the interior there will be a winding stair to the roof and tower, which will be open to the public. Tne stairway will have three landings and on each will be a movie museum containing many of the first cameras and other equipment first used when the industry was in its infancy.
On the 8<>cond floor there will be a large ballroom and In the basement a mammoth Ice-akating palace. There will also be a subeellar. which will be us^ for free parking space with room for 400 automobiles, which will be taken
charge of b.v attendants and delivered to the owner at the door after the per¬ formance.
A feature of the building will be a broadcasting station. KFWB, the Warner Brothers' station, which Is now located at their studio. It is planned to have the house completed by January 1, next.

New York, June 8.--Last week marked the sale of Proctor's Fifth Avenue, the most Important theater of the Proctor chain, and the sale the previous week of the I'roctor house In Elizabeth. N. J which has been Riven over to stock of recent years.
The disposal of these two theaters comes as a surprl e to the vaudeville world. The house Elizabeth was taken oyer by the Fabi ' people, who have started work on · ilarsinR and reoonBtructlnK It Into a larser theater. Title to the property, which was held at J350.000 accordina to reports, was taken May 25, and it Is the plan of the Fabian interests to play Kelth*Albee vaudeville when the house, opens.
The Fifth Avenue," one of New York's oldest theatrical landmarks, was sold at a reported $2,500,000 to Sohnee & Schnee. of BrldReport, Conn. Present leasehold on the property, held by the Kelth-Albee interest, does nOt expire until 1931 and it Is assumed that the theater will continue operatlnR under its present policy until that time. It has a seatinR capacity of 1,600 and in its day was one of New York's leadinR theaters. L^rite stores and offices are also part of the property, which Is situated on a desirable corner.
Since it became a vaudeville theater, controlled by Proctor, it has played bigtime acts from the Keith-Albee Circuit.

Bee Jaikaon is the "Charleaton'' dam-r r #ho was recently with Harry Rlchnuin
in vaudeville and also at the RIchman Oub. Just why thl« hrlef past "career" should make Bee Jackson so valuable to vaudr ville as to have her name out in lights on the theater marquee, as it was at thia theater, is one of t^ie many mysteries of vaudeville. It's certain t4iat the fact that Bee Jackson was formerly part of Harry Richman's "and company" doesn't mean a thing to the box office.
This dOT'sn't mean that Bee Jackson hasn't a likable personality and l.-^n't a lood dancer--in her line. She and ·he la. It may be that the office Is trying to build a new headliner on the Jrenath of the "Charleston" craxe.

Off the stage. Miss Auburn is th. ex¬ act opposite of her part. Clever, lovable, wholesome and serious is this beautiful young actress. How she con¬ ceals her winning smile in Lady, Be Good, is .a marvel. Surely she must be versa¬ tile.
The present appearance Is her first on Broadway, hut an investigation brines forth a background and training that sliould carry her far. She spent most of the earlier years of her life in study abroad. Voice culture, singing and dra¬ matic art came in for the largest share of her efforts. After an intensive course with the famous Camille Grieg Miss Au¬ burn went on the professional stag. In Norway and Sweden and played, in the Scandinavian tongue, a long rep.rtoire of Ibsen, Bjornsnn and other classical dramas. Interesting stories are told of her participation In the various sports of the Northern countries, including an ex¬ perience skiing with the Crown Prince of Norway.
Three years ago she returned to America and join* d the Woodward I'lay¬ ers in Detroit. Feeling a n.-ed for ad¬ ditional training to that of the excellent school of stock, she went into vaudeville and more recently tried her luck in pic¬

When You Smile is a mu.sical comedy

in three acta and six acenea, based on

the play Extra, which was produced in

New York for a very brief run a few

sea-sons back. There is more of a plot

to the atfair than moat musical comedu's

contain nowadays, and it revolves around

a >piiiled colleKe boy who surprises his

father l>y accomplishinK (treat things

with d.iii's motion iiicture paper an<l

winninK a wife for himself. In artaptinc

the idea for musical entertainment a

good d- .il of extraneous and iinent* rt.iin-

ing maiti r was either left in or put In

by mi-'.t.ike, hut with the cuttlnj; of all

the Weak stuiT and the substitution of more strong specialties the show

ought to luive no trouble lasting thru

the summer.

The entertainment as a whole is full

of pep and has tuneful music. There is

some fine talent in the cast, while the

chorus is one of the most acti\e and

attractive groups of young acrobatic

dancers ever seen here. It Is only a

small chorus, but what it lacks in num¬

bers it makes up in talent, vivaciousness

and charm. Every appearance these

Kiris made brought heavy applause.

-Mary Carroll, who plays the leading

feminine role, wins her way with a de¬

lightful p«'rsnnality. despite the fact that

she has very little opportunity to dis¬

play her hi'st talent, and Ray Uaymmul

acts opposite her In a pleasing manner.

If Raymond 4iad a better voice to go

with his good appearance and lik.ible

stage pre.sence he would make .'vAflne

leading man. Charles Lawrence does

fairly well with the comedy responsibil¬

ity, extracting all the laughs that the

bonk contains--and. as usual. It doesn't

contain quite enough--and Dorothy Ap¬

pleby IS one of the liveliest and most

engaging little comediennes that have

visited this city in a long while.

New York, June 6.--For several sea¬ sons pa.-^t. Harry "Rib'' Shannon and Rich "Shorty" Mc.Mlister w«-ie featured coniicuos in various Columbia Circuit shows, in which their coniratling per.sonalitics and individual talent and ability combined made them incom¬ parable.
Like many other teams, they eventually decided on a parting of the wa>s and continued along their individual pursuits until Monday, when Dave Kraus, an of¬ ficial of the Mutual Burle.sque As.sixjiatioij. lessee and directing manager of the Dlympic Theater, presenting Mutual Cir¬ cuit shows during the regular sea.son and burlesque stock presentations during the summer, reached the decision that it was an opportune time to blend into harmony again the team of Shannon and McAlli.ster.
Bringing all hi.s well-known diplomacy into play "Diplomatic" Dave brought clever performers together by ad¬ justing all differences amicably and en¬ gaged them for a Piimmer run at the Olympic Theater, beginning June 8.
Diplomacy vs. Simon Legretism
VV'hile one leading light of burlesque Is ti.'itig diidoniacy in bringing order out of chaos and bringing disgruntled perform¬ ers together, thereby co-operating for mutual 4)enefits, there is another leading light of burlesque u^'ing Simon T..egreeism jn making conditions chaotic and driving otherwise friendly burlesquers apart who have co-operated for years for mutual benefit"
V'erily the ways of some men are In¬ explicable.

T>-e Baker In Odd Man Oxit furnishes in int"'sting study In Intonation. The of Mr. Baker la alwayt gooi In tUb particular com^y It stood out for different reasons. The play Is adapted To flowing convcraatlon with no prilculir leaninss toward the emotional or the drat alic and the cast la small. Kxcept fnr certain facetious crimps In the dialog ihe en>'vmont of the lines depends very mSch on the Individuality of the actor anil his ability to be pleasing in himself. The plot of the play has no particular monuntum In the speeches, and for this
reason Mr. Baker's personality went a tong way toward filling In the gaps of a light piece. This opened the way to listen to Mr. Baker's intonation with un¬ interrupted attention.

\ Kood deal Is said about British Intonation. It Is easily recognized On
the stage It Is easily Imitated by come¬ dians and It Is unconsciously Imitated by anyone that comes in contact with It. The tune i.- fairly d<finite. I^liave heard n.uch le.'s about American Intonation, and
1 am not >ure that anyone has attempted
to DOint out what It is. .American 8P*ech tonei are usually described as more monofoivus than the British, and this is
Ihe opinion of American observers.

.Mr Riker. in my opinion, has beautiful intonation, something that glvea remark¬ able life to thought and a aense of musi¬ cal charm to the ear. He Is an American actor, born In Michigan, and I can not detect the slightest trace of British tune
in his speech. It Is difficult to say that he la typically American, for he Is sev¬ eral notches above that, but his Intona¬ tion. I am sure, reprcs. nts semething that la representative of American tempera¬
ment and ear when It comes to speech in Its best form. lam Inclined to con¬ sider him a model American for want of a better example of what belongs to pleasing and expres.sive speech. Observa¬ tion of Mr. Baker proved so Interesting that I went bai-k to see him after the plav to quiz him a little about his knowledge of the subject. As I expected I found the actor quite unable to ex¬ plain him.>^e1f. He la not the leart sHfconsclous about his voice or speech either on the stage or off. On the stage. In fact, he strictly avoids hearing himself er watching hlniself as a speaker. I shall have to put It in mv own words, but In a part he app.irenilv "thinks" right and feels' right about what he Is saying and then he hts his delivery take Its natural form. Perhaps that la one of the charms of Mr. Baker that his delivery is so un.tffected and apparently unstudied in every way. He has a remarkably free voice, a good range, an admirably blend¬ ed resonance and a particularly sensitive touch of the voice In Its various shading*.
He comes from educated parents and from a family of musicians. His
ear has probably p'aved a large part In hit .-peerh development.

Harold E Palmer Is author of a book

on rnfflifh Infonafion. The object of bis

br>ok Is to place on record "a character¬

istic collection of the tones and tone

compounds as ohsorved In the speech of

most Southern English people In ordinary

convef! at ion." It pmst


that anything he says relates to the

speech of Southern England. Anyone who

has stiidiid a foreign language will Im¬

mediately recognlre that intonation Is an

important factor in language study. We

Immediately find this to be true If we

are t»achlng a Frenchman or an IfalWin

or a to spiak English, or If a

Krenchman Is trying to teach us to speak

Vrcnch In this connection Palmer is

qul»o Justified in saying ; "Pronunciatton

and Intonation are so bound up with each

other that it Is futile to teach or to

learn one without the other." Mr. Palmer

srheg his hook on the assumption that

'her,. IS .1 ''distinct and coherent system"

In the speech tunes of British speech In

Southern England, and his book goes a

long way to prove that such la the case.

John Ersklne. writing on this same snhjei t in Thr Snfinn (.April IB), has this to say: "Tho they use the same words, the Englishman and the Anierh-iin <io not speak the same tune." Ersklne qoesn't pretend to know why this Is so. and. .xltho he considers the British tune pretty to the ear, he finds that It often Brings thr accent of the sentence Info ronflli-t with the logic of It. He gives an llhistratinn:

"Is Mrs. Smith at home?" "She ts not." s;iys the Irish maid. "She Isn't," tavs the English one.

1 Ih'hgllsh ears." Ersklne adds, "the Irish tune In that case sounds abrupt and It says not a negative hut a dlsrotirtesy. 1 fear we Americans ehatl al-

The first sentence illustrates the front vowels (made with the front of the tongue), beginning with the high-front (i:j and ending with low-front (a). The (at) in "my" is a diphthong con¬ sisting of two sounds. 2. The second sentence illustrates the back vowels (the high or low positions of the tongue being farther back), beginning with high-back (u;) and ending with low-back (n). The ( :) indicates that a sound is long in duration. The hack vowels from (u:) to (d) require liprounding. 3. The third sentence illustrates the Mixed or Mid vowels which come between the Front and Back positions. 4. The fourth sentence illustrates some of the consonants.

(R) is voiced and (0) is voiceless. See "there" (Rc.->), sentence 1.

and "thin" (0inl. sentence 4. I'or b<Mh sounds the tip of the

tongue is against the upper teeth, which makes a narrow air

(a) and (.(). In this pair of consonants the (f) may be thought of

as a "hushing" sound. The breath passes thru a narrow passage

made bv the Made of the tonpte touching or nearly touching the

hard palate. The (s) is voiced, the (/) voiceless.

sober man

will say "see" (si;), a drunken man may say (ji:). Why?

(w) and (.w) are a pair, one voiced, the other voiceless, hut the (.w)

is said with a tense breath. Say "which witch" ('.witj 'wifj), and

compare the two sounds. See "would" (wvd). sentence 2, and

"whisker" ('.wisk.3). sentence 4.

(q) in "singer" ('.siqa)--sentence 4--shows that "ng" is uttered as a

single sound. The back tongue and soft palate coming together

produces a nasal resonance.

(j) represents the ordinary untrilled "r" of English.

(j) See "yes" (jes). sentence 4. The (j) in (jes) is a glide sound.

It is practically an (t)--(i) in "it" (it) glided. Say (i-cs) and

then (jes) to get the connection. To beginners the (j) naturally

suggests the lettRr "j". of the alphahet, which is named (d.sei),

but this confusion may he avoided by associ.ating the sound (j)

with the sound (i) as already illustrated.

(d.A) and (tf). To recognize that tffk're is a (d) in "judge" (d3.\dA).

accustomed to use to express supercilious¬ ness and contempt."
To Ersklne 8 mind Americans are los¬ ing their ear or are In danger of losing it. "For In the matter of the tune we have departed not only from the English but from our earlier selves. To my ears the tune of Walt Whitman, the longphrased. varied, sinuous tune. Is the tune of Lincoln In the Gettysburg Address. The tune of Miss Lowell's verse seems to me the tune of Roosevelt's prose."
Mr. Erskine's remarks and my interest In Mr. Baker are all en rapport with something that has been turning over in niy mind whenever 1 havje tried to arrive at some formula about American intonatiop. Certain speei'h tunes are a part of my earliest recollections. 1 associate them with a certain village In New Eng¬ land which I visited a good deal as a boy. One person in this group, born I suppose about 1845, cast a spell over my ear so that some of the simplest expres¬ sions that this person u.sed run thru my mind because of the music of their utteranee, and the same is true of the longer tunes In continued conversation. Ana I recognize that this tune was more or less charaeterlstic of the people In this retired old village which had once been quite a center of activity. Mr. Baker quite entirely coincides with this thing of my nnemory, and so I am bound to cling to him as a representative American.
The American tune, as I sense It, is less conventionalized than the British. It is more expanding, more improvised and more logical. It is more directly ex¬ pressive of the personality, less directly an expression of a social form. The in¬ dividual speaks his own music rather more than he subscribes to a national hymn. At the same time there must be something fundamentally tangible In the intonation, otherwise the American would mi.sunderstand the American Just as successfully as he may misunderstand the Englishman whose tone of frlendl.v solicitude may he misjudged as an^ ex¬
pression of superciliousness and contempt. What is striking In the Intonation of
Mr. Baker Is Its variety and its general to what Is being said. Its tune, if it may be palled a tune, fits every shade of the meaning. It Is born anew with every breath and doesn't run in channels. It has a democratic frankness, a willingness to say exactly what one means with word.s and tones chiming together. And I wonder If this Is not characteristic of American speech. 'The Englishman In his effort to be con-* servafive often makes up in Intonation what he refrains from putting Into words. This works both wavs. He partly con¬ ceals himself, both In his expression of admiration and of contempt, or at least he Is able to do so. Tha American Is less likely to conceal himself at all. In its" crudity this may lead to extreme bluntness, hut In Its best form It may lead to great beauty and elegance of expression in this sense of freedom, with , a fine sense of unity and completeness. But It Is a venturesome task to write about American intonation until someone comes along to study It thoroly and to carefully record Its uprisings and downsittings.
A good deal of discussion about "Ameri¬ can language" and British speech Is due
to a confusion of pronunciation and In¬ tonation. The two things have to be kept separate. Two actors may speak the same standard of pronunciation, but the tune of one may make him especially and the tune of the other may make him e.specially American. And even in these I'nited States we would find Vermont, San Francisco and Texas speak¬ ing tunes of noticeable difference. 'The term Standard English usually refers en¬ tirely to pronunciation, but it Is easily recognizable on the stage In the pulpit and In soi-iety that to speak Standard English in a full sense is to avoid regional intonation quite as much as other things that are regional.
In Odd Man Out the dialog Is carried entirely by four characters. Jamea Crane Is somewhat colorless aa a speaker. He says his lines In a fairly level Intonation and with little imagination. A good deal of the action and di.ilog is leisurely and slow motioned and weak in su.spense and rising Interest. A. E. Anson was not only deliberate hut somewhat heavy as odd man number two. Alma Tell gave considerable color to the capriciousnesa of a roving wife. She gave plauaibllity to outward attractiveness and to the soulless inwardness in a delicate sort of Way and with a pleasant sense of the humorous psychology in the situations. Such a character does not take Itself tix* seriously, and Miss Tell gave easy mohilify to the rapid vacillations of a flexible temperament. One of Miss Tell'S faults Is to flood her voice with emo¬ tional waves of tone, something I associate with a sfock-.acting Impulse. 'These emotional swellings In the throat have no particular depth of meaning, and thev are Inclined to drown nut or over¬ power the spoken words. If emotion Is worth white it needs to make Itself felt in he lines, not somewhere behind the word that Is uttered. The real fusion of the dialog in 0</d Mon Out came from the quick su.sceptibillties and apt speech
of Mr. Baker.
Charley's .-Itinf, at Daly's, is in very capable hands. Tlie cast is excellent. Tbev play the old piece in lively spirit, putting a legitimate earnestness into their acting and behaving so well as ladies and gentlemen that tlie most extravagant situations are projected upon the mind as plausible ones.

Glimpsing the Mode

(Comrnunuations to 1560 Broadway. Sew York. S. Y.)


The Ensemble Leads the

Summer Style Promenade

Detetiptiott and price in The Shopping Service column, this page.

Decidedly chic are the summer boas. desiRncd to pive to the sheer siiniiiier froe'k the faseinatiiip I'ontrast of a deeper color. Marabou niak-s the audaciouslooking choker illustrated at the top i>f this column. Wired beneath soft silk it coils snuglv about the neck* and needs no fastener. Tlie .«treaniers are of a inatciiing shade of silk crepe, finished with pompons of the marabou. When one grows tired of wearing it about the neck she transftrs it to the wrist. Comes in the prevailing shades of tan. gray, n*ahogany, yellow and brown. The price
is $5.93.
A bit more elegant in effect, if not quite so chic, is the mfirabou boa illus¬ trated at the top of the Clinipsing tin* Mode column, this page. The marabou is s«'wn on georgette, the ends of the diaphanous material continuing into broad streamers, finished with silk fringe to match. The colors are rust. be;ge, gray and black. The price is $4.95.

There isn't a question about it. the

ensemble consisting of a diaphanous coat

thru which one catches glimpses of a

colorful frock is the favorite garimnt in

milady's summer wardrobe. It offers so

many definitely different color combina¬

tions that the wearer does not e.\pect to

meet others wearing the same colors as

she fares forth to a saunter or after¬

noon tea. a versatility tiot sliared by the

tailored suit and costume blouse.

For the benefit of tliose not in New

York a P'iflh avenue shop is_ disposing of

the two ensembles at

an oif< r

whi( h holds good during- the month of

June only. Knsemhle No. 83 includes a coat of

navy or black silk georgette, trimmed at

the bottom and sleeves with baixls of

moire ribbon and a tie of self-material,

and a frock of i)rinted silk crepe de

»'hine. The frock f' ature.s a pliati d

skirt trimmed with bone buttons and

finished with s«'lf-material tie. The

frock may be had in navy and r-d, navy

and white or Copenhagen blue and white.

The price is $29.50. Sizes 14 to 18 and

36 to 44.

Knsemhle No. 73 sliows a different

method of trimming, the silk georgette

coat, which may be had in black or

navy, being trimmed with picoted satin

tabs, which form a tuehing effect on

the hem and sleeves. The dress is of

jirinled silk erepe de chine with a satin

band down tlie front, trimmed with nov-

eltv buttons, and nia.v he ordererl in lilack

and white with a purple, blue or green

flower design. The price is $29.50. Sizes

14 to-18 and 36 to 44.

One of the fads of the summer is to wear an upiier-arm bracilet, consisting of rows--five rows to be exact--of small indestructible jiearls. These- lovely and cool-looking armlets come in tlirec sizes. 11 inches in circumference, llt-i^and 12 inches. The pric-es are $6..70, $7.50 and $8..50 ac<-ording to size. They are slipped
on over the hand.

To glimpse the modes worn at Belmont Park, where "the .sfsirt of kings', raviriK. holds bwa.y, and to cutnpare them with sketches of worn at the rae«» at I'aris, is to be impresset] with the grace¬ fulness and .'Oneness of -Vinerican-made fashions. Here are some of the goodlooking clothes glimiised at lb Imont:

A brown ka.sha .-oaf was gor. d. the body part well fitt. d and the skirt flaring out irregularly at the hem.
One distinguished looking woman wore an ensemble of navy-blue faille, the shawl-ctdlar revtres of the coat and the lining composed of red and white cheek.d silk, b.aliit of the frotk also of the same ^ilk.
A charming jump«-r frotk of sag. -cre.n crepe silk, the jumper triinm- d with .silver embroidery and la.'.il up both tides with sll\.`r cord, was worn by an Buburn-haifed b.-auty.
A coat of natural kasha was trimtn.d nlsiut shawl collar and hem with silvtrmoiik. y fur.

Fox >carfs and ermine were in evidence, altho the majority of the smartly dress.-d women seem to pr.fer scarfs of chiffon, silk or of tin- s,<me mat.-rial as the i-oat or frock, treat. d g. nerously with «-olor.

Tip* From a Reader

A reader s»nd.s along "a few tip.s on

makeup for the jirtfenile," who he believes needs a few lessons:
·^n't overlook the ears when making

up.'* writes he. "The lobe of a healthy

ear matches the color of the cheek, so

don't forget when using rouge to apply

It to the ears.

"A very long chin, out of proportion

with a small nose, may be made to look

shorter by applying wet rouge to the tip.

"When the chin recedes and the

is long correct matters by touching up the


flesh-ncolorcd grease paint. which is too long will

appear shorter if a very light touch of

wet rouge is applied to the end.

"Men of fair complexion need b'ue

shadows applied to the eyelids to avoid

a washed-out look."

Tlie Dan Fit' h Mmstrels are putting on practically the entire sliow this week (June 1-6) at the Palace Theater, Cinciiiiiiti, and are going over splendidly. All the new-»pai>ers are devoting a lot of space to the boys, and to Dan. The CiiiviiiHoti Tiinea-Sfar has this to Say about liim: "With the passing of 'Honey Boy' Kvans several years ago and more recently L«-w Dockstader, min¬ strelsy suffered a loss that many in the tli»Hitrical profession declared would gradually n-siilt in this f'jrm of enter¬ tainment b'-i 'iiiiing only a memory. Cer¬ tainly no two indiviiluals did more to keep the black-fa<-e funster, singer and dancer before the public than Bvans and Doi'kstader, and tlieir demise was a severe blow to the branch known as the burnt-cork brigade. But those who pre¬ dicted a complete downfall of this style of amusement reckoned without a young fellow who had bt-cn blackfacing ever since he was 12 years old. and who had a pretty good idea of the hold that min¬ strelsy has S'* the public. He Is Dan Fitch head of the I>an Fitch Minstrels, the feature attraction at the Palace Thea¬ ter. Altho Fitch is now only In his early 30s. he is regard'-d as a inin.str' l veteran, having been In the busin -s.s for the past 22 vears. Working uii'ler Kvans, Dockstader, Nell O'Brii-n and other famous minstrel men. Fitch absorbed a lot of the knowl'-dge of these celebrat'-d enter¬ tainers and showmen with which he has combined some original Ideas of his own. That the combination has struck a popu¬ lar chord is evident by the success tnat has followed the Fitch minstrels." 'The editor did not review the show at th" Palace, but the man who did reported li to be a very good one, with the work of Fitch being exceptionally worth watching. Joe Riley, Charlie Childs, Frank Qinr.ii and Fred Barnes were also mentioned.

Mine Host at tbe Stuart Hotel. Boston,
Plays Philanthropist To Stranded Actors
Paul Porter, momber of a theatrical company playing Boston recently, along with othc-r members of the company, were guests of the Stuart Hotel. 78 Carver street.
When the producing firm closed the show and left the company stranded they Rent an appeal for as.'^lstance to the Actors' Iviuity and Informed Dr. William -Murphy, directing manager of the hotel, as to i-onditions.
On being inform, d of their distress Dr. Murphy assured them that, as members of Equit.v, he had every confidence In their integrity, furthermore was ready ;ind willing to release their baggage and j.dvanoe them Immediate transportation to New York and await settlement of their respective accounts at their con¬ venience.
Verily, It pays to be a member of Equity, an organization that Is recog¬ nized thruout the country as a standard of Integrity, that works to the benefit of Its members wherever they may be.

Mr. Prank Olllmore,

Executive Secretary,

Actors' EquHy As.soclation,

New York City.

My Dear Mr. Glllmore -- It Is my

humble belief that the extreme courtesy,

tnnfi.lence and aid of the management

of the Stuart Hotel. Boston, to embar¬

rassed members of the Actors* Equity

.Association Is worthy of being brought

to the attention of the council and officers

of that association.

M'Tien players are abondoned by the

producers of a play, with both salaries

and return fares to New York unpaid,

and a hotel keeper not only refuse* to

hold effects but advances money and

personal effort on expressed faith and

confidence In the A. E. A.. It Is certainly

a testimonial to the changed standing,

economically and socially, of the actor.

This circumstance occurred to members

f.f a company of which I was one, and

T am occupving this much of your valu¬

able time to relate what to me seemed

more than a graceful gesture.

Allow me also to express appreciation

to the association for Its prompt and

thoro answer to a "stranded" company's

call for aid.

Rtncerly yours.

Montreal Magi Form Club
Magicians of Montreal. Can. have or¬ ganized a "Montreal Magicians' Club", according to an interesting letter sent this department by Eric Ilalini, the magi¬ cian and card deceptionist. Sydney Levine has been elected president of the organization and the other oflicers are: Robert Adrien, secretary, with AV'illety Donat. A. Gagnon, De Kermel. Svmon A'libha. George Williams and Eric Halinl comprising the executive committee.
Willard, "the man who grows", played Montreal recently, according to Ilalini. who writes that besides doing his regular act Willard is doing an expose of the "front and back" palming of card.-<. AA'illet.v Donat, Belgian magician, fea¬ tures this trick and naturally resents the expose of it on the part of AVillard. Our correspondent tells us that as a result Donat has started to do the "growing" stunt himself, and now both "gTowing" and the "front and back" card-palming tricks are being done by all the school¬ boys of Montreal.

The Great Chefalo opened a tour of the Panfages Circuit m Toronto, Ont., May tfi. Chefalo is offering an act which Is a distinct novelty to vaudeville audi¬ ences today. His magic is different from the average and his settings very unique.

Decoration Day, the geUaway date for many summer enterpribes and the first big business-building day for projects

For instance, there were the Memorial Day processions and tlie exercises con¬ nected with commemorating the soldiers who have given their lives for their country.

To Protect, Improve and Advance

The Repertoire and Tent Interests

The interests of the repertoire and tent showmen have long been

neglected. Hostile legislation has been enacted or attempted from

time to time, territories taken away by combines, operating and

traveling conditions made more difficult to meet and the popularity of

itinerant shows menaced by injurious and false propaganda. Even the

relations between the repertoire and tent show owners and their actors

have not always been smooth and satisfactory.


After giving the subject a great deal of thought it seemed to us

that the Actors' Equity .Association constitutes the logical protector of

the repertoire and tent interests, and in touching upon the subject with

an official of that organization we find that the association has already

considered the question very seriously.

Equity's idea is that, if all repertoire and tent show managers will

register with it for a nominal fee, the association will in turn, and upon re¬

ceipt of complaints that any inimical legislation or other harmful ac¬

tivity is being attempted against traveling shows immediately send a

representative to the scene of action and set its other machinery at

work to protect the interests of these shows. Much good work along

these lines has already been done by Equity, and more can be accom¬

plished with the co-operation of those who are most concemed-

Anolhcr excellent idea that Equity is working out for the benefit

of repertoire and tent showmen is a plan whereby an affiliation will

be effected with well-known playwrights for the purpose of making

the better class of popular plays available to small traveling show's at

a very low cost--say something like $70 a week for a complete reper¬

toire of seven plays. An arrangement of this kind would ultimately

prove most advantageous to both sides, because a low'cr royalty would

enable the small shows to use a greater number of good plays, and the

better class of entertainment offered by these companies would attract

bigger audiences.

This scheme seems to us to be potentially good and sound. Its

realization should mark a new era for the repertoire and tent fields.

Only thru organization can these interests ever obtain the needed pro¬

tection against existing powerful hostile elements and other inimical

forces thaf are liable to crop up hi the future. In addition to serving

in a protective capacity. Equity, thru the medium of the proposed

advisory board of the theater, will be in a position to look after the

improvement and advancement of,the repertoire and tent interests just

as it is doing in the legitimate field.

That the small traveling show interests need an effective organiza¬

tion is beyond dispute, and the opportunity for these interests to be¬

come allied with the Actors' Equity Association ought to be greeted

w'ith rejoicing. We would like to have expressions of opinion from

repertoire and tent managers on this subject

From the M. P. T. O. A. has come the urgent request that exhibitors al¬ locate a fair number of their play dates to recognized independent producers. Pledge cards have been mailed to the theater owners. An appeal has been is¬ sued to members of the organization to immediately pay their dues, as the fiscal year began June 1. Without this money the M. P. 'T. O. A. will have its hands tied in its fight for independence. Delay and neglect in signing the pledge cards will also raise havoc with the program of attack. Motion picture theater men must not procrastinate in the matter. It lies with them to maintain the spirit of harmony and co-operation which had its inception at Milwaukee.^ To fail to do this is equivalent to inviting ex¬ termination from the exhibitorial field.
A SHORT time ago there was a con¬ vention of newspaper men in Min¬ neapolis, and in his speech to them Governer Christianson made the follow¬ ing remark that can be applied very nicely to some theatrical producers: "His wares must have a better justifica¬ tion than a public demand for them."
A REFERENCE to the possibility of another dramatic circuit similar to the old Stair & Havlin Circuit, in an editorial in this publication last week, aroused interested discussion in a group of experienced Chicago show¬ men. One thought such a circuit is bound to come or drama is bound to go save in repertoire, stock and Broad¬ ways $hows on one-night stands. Then another man spoke, and it seemed the rest were itnpressed.
"Such a circuit is impossible," he de¬ clared. "Wlierc are you going to get the theaters? The Keith-.Mbee Circuit has so many houses sewed up east of the Mississippi River that vou can't get theaters for a circuit. What theaters the Kcith-.\lbee people^ do not play vaudeville in they play pictures in. and, believe me, they are running a lot of movie houses.

The narrative concerns Nadlo, crystalgazer, who meets Joe Woodbury when she delves into the fortune of his unfaithful wife, Eleanor. Their friendship propresses at a party given by Mrs. vVisidbury.

I had the pleasure last week of speak¬

ing bilore a nun's club of the flrat M.

E, Churih of Englewood. The dale came

to me thru the kindly courtesy of Jess

Puuh who been secured for the oo-

caiiiun and then found It Impossible to go A splendid buneh of listeners! That

cliib will use a siieaker or entertainer

frequently next season. I suspect that

there are more than a thousand organize-

I etis in Chicago that depend upon plat¬

form people In the same way. As the r.iatter now stands these dates are picked

up in a hlt-or-nilss fashion. The same

wjioIes.ile b<H>kiiig and pos.sibly fur

u.iti li.i.s ofttn been discussed. Hut

nothing \ital has ever b«'en done In the

.. 'ilie truth is, 1 iniagiiie, that \eu and I who would must benetit from

viah an arrangement have nev« r done our

part to n. ke such an arrangement posi.:ble. The I. L. C. A. office needs a

*t.nogr.ipher, nnd a girl could be kept

busv in Ju.-Jt such Work If every plat-

foriiii.-t would co-operate. It Is not f -r

me to .s.iy just what should be done.

But I believe that a vast numlx-r of h>,-.i's might he made In Clue;.go and

many In other cities by such an m rang.-

ment. It Is just possible tliut some ona

field, such as the commen.-enient fhid and 'he county institutes, might be left

to org.inization. I do not believe that any bureau is sufficiently interested

in i.ilnr of those fields to make any objt. 'i'in. Even a small busiti'.ss of that

sort rvould pay the expense of the extra

help and h-ave Air. Kramer fr' .· to do

niiirc impiirtant work. This surge.-tioii

has not been made to me by any one.

i' It would not meet with the ap¬

proval of the organization. 1 make it

because It seems to me that It would

save a phitform waste. Kiwanis Club dates. Rctary, co-operative cluh.s lodger,

et". might be Included In such a cam¬


Of course, to make anything of that sort effective It would have to hive the

rnders meirt of both bureaus and platformlsts and a co-operation which wouM

be at once definite and helpful. It should

be so organized that there would never

b' .my competition with any bureau or booking agency recognized by the I. E C. A.

Many of the clubs In the cities do not

pay anything at present for dinner talks.

A wfll-conducti d campaign might gradu¬

ally fstaldish a small fee for that sort of pl.itform endeavor. As these clubs

1' uiid tiiat they could alw ays get splendid

numbers by paying merely a small fee,

Th. re are tnanv ways In whU'h such a

The announcement of the death of Dr. Frank Dixon came as a shock to all mem¬ bers of the I. E. C. A. We were able to publish a portrait last week and a simple atinouriceiiient. We liave been unable to obtain up to this time a suitable article In regard to the life and work of Dr. Dixon. The following letter sent by Dr. i'aul Pearson gives additional In¬ formation, however. I>r. Pearson says :
'1 am writing this just after the fnneral service.s of Frank Dixon, which w. re held at the home In Brooklyn at 9 :30 this morning. Dixon had been sb k for five We ks with shifting pneumonia, which Is (lifficnlt, if not impos.sible, to cure, so I am told. When tlie affected siM.t In one jiart of the lung Is heab d an¬ other spot apiiears at a iioint far re¬ moved from the affected area. Prank'.s son, Oeorge. who is a practicing physician In Brooklyn, was in con-stant attendance and supplemented bis servicfi with that of the most skilled specialists In New York. Frank was onl.v 59, but on examin.itlon they found he had a body of 80. 80 that he had only the chance of a man of 80 to pull thru.
"A.s I knew the family well Mr. Dixon kept me Informed and Saturday morning they wired that the end was exiiected that day. He died at 2:30 ji m. Saturday.
"Murray Dixoh of Birmingham. Ala., was with his father at the last, as was the daughter Barbara, who is a senior at Columbia. The oldest son. Max, an engineer. Is In Alexioo and could not be reached.
"The funeral service was attended only bv the family. Thos. Dixon was there and the two sisters. A.i C. Dixon is at the point of death in a hospital in Balti¬ more. A simple but impressive service was read by a former classmate of Frank's at Hartford Theological, who also read a few verses at the crematory chapel, where we drove after the service at the house.
"Mrs. Dixon will continue to live at IfiS St. Johns Place. Brooklyn, and B.arhnra and George will make their home with her.
Another Platformist Gone
The death of former Vice^resident Ti.i'iim.s R. Ma»hall has taken from the American platMrm another notable fig¬ ure. Ho was another of those statesmen who could see the Importance of the Chau¬ tauqua and the lyceum in forming and correcting public opinion, and his every utterance was filled with that spirit of wise patriotism which realizes that every platform utterance should be filled with t-onservative wisdom rather than with that glorification of American Institutions intended nn-rely to tickle the national egotism of the casual listener.
Indiana has furnished to the American platform n notable list of orators, and Ihe State Is as famous for Its speakers as It Is for Its literary eminence. Hon. Thumas R. .Marshall was an Indianian both by birth .and temperament. His career as governor of the State was notable for the wise legisl.ttlon of that commonwealth looking toward the moral and physical welfare of Its people. His two terms as vice-president brought noth¬ ing of the spei facular. He was never a seek* r tif the limelight. Yet there have h-en few statesoun who occupied that IM.sitlon with more conservative, con¬ structive ability
The AitHorintrii Pecss, In Its announce¬ ment of his death, gave the following paragraphs In regard to his mental habits:
"Mr. Marshall was a good story teller and nothing delighted him more as vicepresident than to steal out of the senate chamber Into his private office, smoke a pljH! and entertain friends by reciting Instances of his experiences as a country lawver,
"Air. Marshall was an omniverous read¬ er, but as he once cxpresscil to a friend, 'not at all a thoughtful reader.* He had a penchant for detective or my.stery stories and frequently sat up all night to com¬ plete the reading of a tale.
"He also was a Bible stndcnt and often times, while serving ns vice-president, could be seen sitting In his office reading friiin the little vest-fsH-ket testament which he always carried. Of moderate financial circumstances he was always In¬ terested In educational, church and charitable work"
As fo his pl.itform work there are few of the platform jw'ople wly have not listened In his addresses with phcisure. He lectured for the Eoar ludijs'iident ChautauquHS for several seasons nnd i>n several of the circuits, as well as ui>on the lyceum courses. Every' pl.itformist mnv well be proud to have be< n a coworker with one who was at the .same time so eminent, so Interesting and so useful.

I had a little visit with Robert O. Bowman the other day. He called on me at the Lorraine, and, as he sat clialtiiig, he said; "You know I am not on the chautuuquas this summer. 1 ueglect'-d the matter until it was too late, due to some sickness in my home. I thought It would be a good thing fur me to take a vacation for one summer. But now, as the time is at hand when so many of the chautauquas are beginning to give their services to the various communities, I atn unea^^ and I know that 1 shall miss the fellowship, the inspiration and the lure of the great annual Chautauqua pilgrimage. If any opportunity should come to me at this Tate day..! know 1 wouid change my plans and go."
Several of the circuits have been at work for weeks. Others will op' n their tents in the near future. All over the land the people of every w;ide-awake, worth-while community are either look¬ ing forward to the feast which is to come or still talking about the good things they have had. Those of us who are in close touch with the business are wont to criticize this or that, and especially do We love to criticize those men or In¬ stitutions which seem to have the future of the American platform in their hands. It gives one such a comfortable feeling to what we believe to be the mis¬ takes of -the other fellow. But I have noticed that whene ver a platformist be¬ comes a manager in a very few months at least he is following the same path that others are treading. No Chautauqua manager has ever vet given as good a
?rogram a.s he would like to give. But
believe that almost every manager is giving a£ good a program as he can possibly give under bis own circum¬ stances.
The Swarthmore Chautauquas have is¬ sued a great many little leaflets which they send everywhere, each one with some little message of cheer wliich will do some one some good or will strike an optimistic note in regard to the In¬ stitution of the Chautauqua. I esp»-cially liked one of these leaflets which I read recently, because It seemed to humanize the whole institution. It was a short utterance by Frederick William Wile, and 1 am reproducing it because I think you. too. will like It. It is as follows:
"If ever I wanted to launch a crusade for the right in this virile nation of ours, if I wanted to reach the heart and soul of .America on a great moral issue. If I wanted to stir the emotions of the people at the real fountainhead of na¬ tional inspiration I would steer wide of the cities with the teeming, tempestuous millions and make straight for `main street' in Chautauqua towns.
"Democracy In our country is essential¬ ly of the small town. I thought It a splendid thing as I strolled thru the shaded streets of Marlon that we are accustomed habitually to go to such com¬ munities for our Presidents. Only a few of them were N'rn and reared In the atmosphere of greiit cities. Warren G. Harding was not only brought up in a ch<iut:iii<iua town. He himself was of our splendid fraternity of Chautauqua devo¬ tees and held forth with distinction In the big brown tents. Chautauqua, we see, has at len.'th climbed to the stars. We h.ive reached the White House.'*
It seems to me that the most eloquent and convincing proof of the Inherent value of the Chautauqua'Institution is the facts that such men as Warren G. H.irding. President T.ift. Vice-President M.trshall and a host of others wore will¬ ing to give their time, their power and their Influence in fostexing a movement which brings an Influence so fine and so cultural to almost every community
In the land.
.\nd now as the hlg brown tops are going up like luushriKinis nil over the l.ind. as fiddles are tuning for the grand pilgrimage, as committees are working tn fill the loeal people with that enthusi¬ asm which Ls always necos.sar.v to in;>ke any community project a succe.s.s. every one of us has the urge to get out .and take a part in the great work. In 10.000 towns, where little homes ni-stlc .imong the flowers, whore the arching elms hi-ntl over "main streets", where village lo.ifers
sit around at night and criticize "the best little town oil earth--the home town", where young people who will have the Weight of the world on their sluuihiers are waiting for the Inspiration which will lead them into ways of tisefuln«ss. the chautaiiipia will go with its me.'-s.igc of j-heer and encouragement. It Is a wonderful responsihility for the program huildi-r and an equally great r' p-iisibility for the platformist to st) build e.u h lirograni and frame 'each tiltciaince evi-ry listener will go away from the tint with' higher idi.ils and a firmer defqrmlnafion to do his part In giving serv¬
ice to his family, hitt nome town and his home land.

Jo(l Eastman
Most every one knows Joel Eastman. The Danvtlle (ind.) Jiepubhean describes him as follows:
"AnioiiK speakers Joel Eastman Is unique. His speech is not a reflection of other men's thoughts and ideas, nor Is his manner of delivery an imitation of other sj>- akers' methfids. He is distinct¬ ly a thi.-iker who builds a balanced and symmetrical superstructure of truth upon a foundation tliat goes far below the sur¬ face to bedrock. He commands instant attention by Ids evidi nt strength of char¬ acter and mind. He possesses a droll sense of liumor which lightens the most serious discu.sslon. Audiences like the man for himself enjoy his way of speak¬ ing, his original phraseology and are thrilled with conviction and enthusiasm because of his earnestness and evident sincerity. He has spoken in every State in the Union. In Canada and New Zea¬ land, and always his hearers quickly dis¬ cern the ability of the man to get at the heart of the problem he is discussing and appreciate his accurate and convincing analysis.

Community Chautauquas
We recently published programs of the Community Chautauquas, but the pro¬ gram of tne big st.x-day circuit was not included. We publish It herewith:

But the fact remains that^there Is no greater Inspiration for fine, clean living, for com¬ munity regeneration .ind national Ideal.s today than that offered by the chaut.niqua. Its value to any community cannot be calculated In dollars. The loss fo the community whlcli neglects its opportunity can not be figunil by arithmetic or calculus. Its growth along conscientioii lines will make of .Vnierica a better Ian I In which to live. Its decay would mean a civilization wliich Is beginning to seek the level of om-world countries that lack in ideals. In altruism and in service.
Perhaps some <Iiv some one will origi¬ nate something belter than the rhauiau<pi.i for all this, but the fact remains that up to this time nothing hitter has been offend, \utomobiles. radio. |>honogr.ipt s. movies--all fine tilings in their way -- haxc not taken the place of the Chautau¬ qua a.s creators of ideals or as builder.s of character.

This sad event came suddenly as a re¬ sult of heart trouble at his home in Marion, Kan., June 1.
He was governor of Kansas for two terms and previously he bad served in the Kansas House of Uepresefitatives, being sneaker pro tern, (luring his last term. For years Governor Hoch was one of the big features in Chautauqua and lyceum circles and naturally all platformIsts counted him as one of their friends.
Until ,a few years ago Mr. Hoch was editor and proprietor of The Marion Herord. which he had edited since 1874 and which is now In charge of his son, 'Wal¬ lis Hoch.

It is a very gratifying thing that so many o? the ministers of America are regular readers of The Billboard. I am honestly trying to make this department stand for all the best ideals of the plat¬ form, and, thanks to the co-operation of many fine platformists, I am sure that these efforts are appreciated.

I have been reading some good things about Oney Fred Sweet and his lecture. Ill the Other Fellovfa Shoes. He is on the Ellison-White Circuit just now and a recent clipping from. The Daily Press, Brenham, Tex., said: "To newspaper people the most interesting feature of the entire Chautauqua was Oney Fred Sweet's lecture, Iti the Other Fellow's Shoes, and everybody in this office got unusually busy and speeded up operations Saturday so as to get the paper out early and be on hand to hear this clever and talented young newspaper man. In his wide ex¬ perience of holding down 100 other fel¬ lows' jobs Mr. Sweet found niuch that was humorous, much that was instruc¬ tive, much that was dramatic--and he told of his adventures in a manner th,at thrilled and entertained his audience. His philo.^ophy of life embraces the one great thought: 'Be a master at your job; if you are only a dog catcher strive to be the BEST dog catcher there is! Strive' to reach the highest point of efficiency; do your best in whatever job you are called upon to fill.' Your view¬ point of your job makes all the difference in the world, stressed the lecturer, who closed with the story of the three brlcklayeiE who were asked what they were doing. The first said `I am laying bricks,' the second 'I am making $5 a day,' the third 'I am building this cathedral.' Mr. Sweet has a message that is unique even In Chautauqua, which strives to appeal to people of every class and taste, and his talk was enthusiastically received.''

of butter, a sack of flour and a dozen eggs. Perhap.s this i.s a far-fetched comparison, but actually a similar situa¬
tion is what motion picture theater owners of the United Statesare facing to¬ day, and the reason they have declared war on the ``big three" producing and distributing companies.
A motion picture producing company makes many pictures each year. Included in this number are a few that are really big attractions, some that are good entertainment but nothing unusual, still others that are designed solely for morons and nearmorons, and a considerable number that can only be designated 8.4 "awful".

de.«!ire is to provide the public with entertainment of the sort that it wants and will pay for.
The theater owTior realizes that the public will fill his house to see the really good attractions put out by the "big three". But can he go into the market and purchase them? He cannot. The producing companies make a counter proposition. To the theater owner they say in effect: "You sign a contract to purchase our entire of say 50 pictures, and we will sell

WK doff our chapeau to Frank J. Taylor. Not because he has become

the owner of a circu.'j--three rinits, count 'em--but b«'eause his ac¬

quisition of that circus is symbolical of a trait of character that

should be a blcsHng to Mr. Taylor and the envy of mo.ut of the rest of us.

It represents, as a matter of fact, a combination of attributes.

For one thing, it repre.sents the abillt.v to hew to the line thru long

years of struggle and waitiiig. Frank J. Taylor decided years ago that

Mime day he would own a circus. Circumstances forced him into other

channel.*. He flourifhed in business, became in time head of a great grain

exchange, and was known as a successful grain man to his associates.

But deep in his heart ne.stled that resolve.

Frank Taylor's circus illustrates, too, a man's ability to keep young,

in so far as the retention of youthful ambitions and desires is concerned.

It was as a young man that he formed his resolve. Now, when the gray

Is beginning to show ab<>ul his temples and the lines mark his face, he

executes that resolve with the same high-hearted buoyancy that was his

when he made it. The years have creased his face somewhat, but they

have left Taylor's heart untouched.

One must admire a man who can hold to the purpose like that. It

wouldn't make any difference whether his determination had been to own

a top hat or a chicken farm or a fur coat. The principle involved ia the

thing that is sublime.

The spring Is here. Out from the winter quarters the gaudy wagons

and prancing, besi>angled horses begin to move; the old calliope, freshly

painted. Is given a full head of steam and joins the glad parade. The

circus takes tn the road. And standing there in the sawdust ring, smiling

his genial smile. uncon.«clously beating time to the music of the band, i.s

the man who knew how to make a dream come true--under the Big Top

at last!

O me," said Havrah Hubbard, a member of the Board of Directors


of the American Operatic and Allied Arts' Foundation, to Wlnthrvip

* P. Tryon in an interview published In The Christian Science

Monitor of May 23, "opera Is drama, and so I have come to the <»ncluslon

it Is to every American. To an Italian or a Frenchman, and even to a

Russian, the appeal lies chiefly in tonal beauty, while to a tJerman it

rests largely in heroic and sentimental emotion. Give a person of L-itin

temperament a good phraf>e or a fine high note and dramatic truth doe.*

not much matter. But you must put a certain Intellectual quality into the

thing or the American does not like it. He demands a reason for all

you do.


"Now the out-and-out opponents of o^'ra condemn it as absurd, and

of course they are right. But that does not mean that we ought to lay

stress on the absurdities. Granted that opera Is a form of art, and there¬

fore in a manner (Xinventlonal, we must nevertheless make It as Pt'emingly

logical as we can, ^nd the only way, if I have the correct solution of the

problem, is thru the drama.

"To illustrate my point with a familiar instance or two, take first the

climax of the triumphant scene In the second act of Aida. How often I

have seen the triumphant Radames take the wreath presented to him by

the princess, and, instead of putting It on, as all laws of ceremony would

refjuire, merely throw it down and step to the footlights and begin to sintt! Take for another example the scene in Madame Butterfly, in which the

two Japanese women decorate the house for Pinkerton's return. I can't

tell you how many times I have seen cherry blos.soms and chryi-xinthemums

mixed pell mell, with no thought of the contradiction of seasons. Not

only do they Jumble spring and fall together In violation of <?ommon sense,

- but they even disregard the implications of the libretto, for the women

one moment speak of the garden as robbed of its flower? and at a later

moment open the door and show it blooming as gayly as ever.

"In my opinion we should have a person direct opera production who

Smakes clear to everybody in the cast precisely what the meaning of the iece is. They do that way in'the theater; they ought-to in the op<>r.>.

ouse. As we have been going, each performer learns his own part in hi.-'

own way, or at best according to some tradition, and fits hlm.«elf in with

the other performers as best he can. The chorus, ordinarily, knows nothing

of what the principals are doing. . . .

"The important thing for us Is to us« the ability of the young Ameri¬

can singer. Give him a picture of which he can be a part. YVe waste our

resources because we, do not let our artists know what they are to do. M'e are held down by » tradition that is Vished' on us. I would like to

see it discarded. What Is a tradition anyway but a daring thing that

somebody did and that others have copied? If somebody once used Initiative,

why cannot a person do it now?"

Mr. Hubbard discussed the possibilities of Improvement In opera

decoration, noting tha- paint and canvas have about become exhausted, and

indicating that a period of scenic Illusion thru light is at hand. He ex-

pres.sed the view that opera will be composed in a more distinctly dramatic

vein as time passes, with the ordinary dialog rather spoken than sung, and

with the orchestral accompaniment reduced in sonority and Instrumental

elaboration. . . .

In the case nf the package--improper wrapping--a piece of mail must be taken out of ihe regular postal machinery for ''directory service" or "honpital service", It becomes a ''NIXIE".
If the postal sleuths are able to correct the address or return to sender for a better one, it again becomes a piece of mail--tho "delayed mail" is the better sobriquet.
If, after an exhaustive effort, the postal "detective" must give up the puzale, and there is no return address, the piece of mail is consigned to the EWd Letter Office, where it again changes its name to dead letter or dead parcel, me the case may be.
Its period of existence as a "nixie" is the most expensive one. It demands special attention from the very best clerks. Valuable time is spent in its behalf, time which also may prove more costly to the mailer or intg-nded recipient thru the attendant delay.
Rut In (he long run the postal service loses most. In Chicago 400 workers do nothing but handle "nixies". In New Y'ork the service cost.s $500 dally. In all the "nixie" costs the Government about $1,740,000

Europe may be a long way from Minneapolis, but there should be m^ore than passing interest in the death of Louis FYederlk Johannes ^uwmeester, Holland's greatest actor, considered the finest Shylock and King Lear of his day. Bouwmeester died recently In his 82d year. He was born on September 5, 1842, and won fame more than 45 years by his performance of the Jew in The Merchant of Venice. He made many visits to England and Germany, playing Shylock In Dutch while Holland acclaimed him her favorite actor. He entered the theatrical profes.sion. of which his father, L. T. Rozenveldt, was a member, against his own wish, his desire as a boy being to become a sailor. His early experiences were in a Salon des Varietes, and he was a popular artist for nearly 20 years before he turned to serious roles. For a short time he was associated with
