The San Carlo Opera company will
be the attraction at the Whitney thea-
tre, Monday and Tuesday nights and
Tuesday matinee, October 26-27.
Crace Cameron to ('ome to Majestic
One of the most charming artistes in
vaudeville today is Miss Grace Camer-
on, whose appearance here is a feather'
in the Majestic cap. She has scored
countless triumphs abroad, as well as
in every city in this country. Serges
Witts, the special Russian peace en1
voy to the United States during the
Russian-Japanese war, was so inter-
ested in Miss Cameron after he heard
her sing that he personally presided
over a special concert aboard the
Kaiser Wilhelm 11.
Miss Cameron was enroute to Cape
Town, South Africa, at the time where
she appeared with such success that

she remained for a period of six weeks
in each city. Now she returns to us
after these numerous successes the
same little Grace-not a bit changed-
"just tickled to death to get back." Her
appearance here marks one of the
most important bookings ever made by
the Majestic.
Wright Novel Comes Dramatized
The much talked of presentation in
play form of Harold Bell Wright's
famous novel, "The Winning of Bar-
bara Worth," will be the attraction at
the Whitney theatre, shortly.
No theatrical offering of the current
season has aroused more interest or
caused more pleasureable anticipation
than has this play of virile life and
action in the great plains and deserts
of the Southwest. The scenic produc-
tion will be up to the standard and
promises to rival in elaborate splen-
dor "The Round Up" and "The Trail of
the Lonesome Pine."

Six-Abdallahs at Majestic three days beginning October 22,

Signor Angelo Antola, the celebrat-
ed baritone of the San Carlo Grand
Opera company, which will soon pay
this city a visit, is said by -eminent,
critics to be a student as well as a
star-an artist who believes acting as
essential as singing, maintaining that
grand opera.demands something more,
of its interpreters than a mere voice,
however glorious. There are singers"
of renown who, in many instances,
have permitted the histrionic require-
ments of a role to go practically un-
considered, paying attention simply
to its musical claims.
Signor Antola, who has sung with.
distinguished success upon the world's
famous opera stages, has been written
about and singled out as an artist of
superlative voice and acting ability.
He is said to be of commanding pres-
ence, though not large in stature. His
voice is of a splendid ringing quality,
with extraordinary carrying power.
His conception of the opera star's
province embraces a thorough under-
standing of the character to be as-
sumed and of the period in which he
Antola's presence with the San Car-
lo organization last season was the
occasion for many remarkable tri-
umphs. While not, perhaps, so well
known in America, he has sung ex-
tensively throughout Europe and the
South American republics where the
love of grand opera is of long stand-
ing. For eight years he was the most
popular baritone in Spain, and'there
is scarcely a city in the land of the
Dons where he has not sung-Madrid,
Barcelona, Cadiz, and many others.
He scored immense success in Portu-
gal, Italy, Bohemia, even singing in

The internes with the rank of M.D.
are Harold B. Barss,CJohn L. Lavan,

The rank of assistant has been con-
ferred upon two members of the class

pointed an assistant in obstetrics and
gynecology; Robert W. Selby, is now
assistant in ophthalmology, while
Leslie C. Scully, '15M, has been ap-
pointed assistant in clinical medicine.
Carroll D. Partridge, is an

den, who is a voluntary assistant
in bacteriology.

The biggest of all musical tabloids
is John P. Reed, in "The Dream Girl,"
which will soon be the attraction at
the Majestic theatre. The company
carries twenty people, including a
chorus of twelve girls. The play is
laid in five scenes. It was written by
John P. Reed and Boyle Woolfolk,
music by Boyle Woolfolk and Felix G.
Rice, every song in the show being
original. There are fifteen numbers
and specialties combined, including the
sonograph, one of the most recent
novelties on the vaudeville stage.
Specialties are also done by John P.
Reed, Jessie Maker, Erio Carle, Clar-
ence Beckous and Grace Manlove.
There are two songs, either of which
may be called the piece de resistance
of the show, one having the same title
as the show, which is a beautiful mel-
ody running through the entire action
of the piece; the other number, which
the audience cannot resist whistling
is "I'd Love to Live." Other song hits
of the show are "Sahara Sarah,"
"Bridal Twirl," and "Persian Moon."

Billie Burke, famous comedienne, to

appear in "Jerry", November 5, at



Miss Billie Burke made a hit as the
irreppressible tom-boy, Tommy, in
Pinero's "The Amazons" when she
appeared in- a revival of that charming
comedy at the Empire theatre, New
York, a year ago last spring and on
tour last autumn, but she has made
a much bigger hit as the heroine of
"Jerry," the comedy by Catherine
Chisholm Cushing in which she will
be seen at the Whitney theatre, Thurs-
day, November 5. "Jerry" is a thor-
oughly up-to-date comedy and its
heroine is even more than that. Some
one described her very aptly as "a.
girl an hour ahead of time." "Jerry"
is a bit of a tom-boy, too, but of an
entirely different sort from "Tommy.
"Tommy" didn't want to get married;'
"Jerry" does and it is the way she
catches a husband that makes most
of the "laughing" in the play.
Y. I1. C. i IN NEED OF 400
University Y. M. C. A. officials are
making efforts to enlist 400 volun-
teers for committee work. 'A circular
explaining the needs is being sent
to each member, and already more
than 100 favorable replies have been
The circulars mention as some fea-
tures of the work already accomplish-
ed this year: 10,000 entries into the
big tent during opening week, 1200 at
the first Majestic meeting, 1400 men
at Dr. Warthin's lectures, and 340

What a happy combination for the
masses of motion picture fans the
world over! The Photo Drama Co. de-
serves all the success that could be
meted out to them for this more than
beautiful balla'd offering.
Who has not heard Mr. Harris'
haunting ballad that took the world
by storm some twenty years ago? Who
has not heard of pretty Effie Shannon
and her theatrical career from the
time she appeared as a little tot of a
Miss in John Stetson's "Uncle Tom's
Cabin" up to the past two seasons
when she essayed the leading role in
David Belascoe's "Years of Discre-
tion?" Who has not heard of Herbert
Kelcey, who for fifteen years was
Frohman's leading man in the New
York Lyceum stock, and who since
has appeared with Miss Shannon as
co-star in over fifty artistic successes?
"After The Ball" is their first ap-
pearance in photo play and has been
pronounced by all critics as the most
alluring, gripping and heart interest-
ing feature ever produced in America.
It will be seen at Whitney Theater,
Thursday, Friday, Saturday, October
22-23-24, matinee and night. No one
should miss it.
Laboratory Receives Nickel Specimens
Among recent additions to the min-
eralogy laboratory, is a complete col-
lection of nickel ore specimens re-
ceived from the Canadian Copper
company, of Copper Clift, Ontario.
Speciiens of phosphate rock from the
new deposits recently discovered in
Wyoming, have also been added to the
mineral collection.
