(Henry Clews and Company)
One of the most satisfactory and
significant effects of the war is its
stimulating effect on American enter-
prise. More than anything else it has
forced upon us recognition that we
are a world power, commercially and
industrially as well as politically. The
giant of the western hemisphere has
at last awatened to the- new door of
opportunity opened by the declaration
of war in August, 1914, and already
occupies a considerable place in the
American manufacturers, merchants
and bankers are fully coftscious of the
new opening and are already demon-
strating their faith in the future. Our
chambers of commerce, our leading
business organizations, our big ex-
porters and big bankers are taking
the initiative. As an illustration a
big $50,000,000 corporation, directed
and backed by a number of the biggest
commercial and financial men in the
country,, completed plans for the de-
velopment of a great foreign trade
last week.
The halt in speculation which began
three weeks ago was prolonged
through the last week by develop-
ments in the Balkans, by a feeling
that war stocks have been fully dis-
counted, and by the holiday. The un-
dertone of the market has, however,
unquestionably improved through li-
quidation and the test thus applied to
Toward the end of the week there
was more aggressive buying and good
stocks found ready support. As to
fundamental conditions, the outlook
continues favorable. Trade revival
seems to be making further progress,
especially in steel and textile indus-
tries; enterprise is recovering; rail-
road earnings show better results,
both gross and net; money is easy and
plentiful, gold continucs to come in
plentifully from abroad, sterling ex-
change is still advancing, and a good
investment demand prevails for all de-
sirable issues. T

fa-culty Coneert Thursday
The next complimentary faculty con-
cert which will take place in Hill/au-
ditorium Thursday afternoon promises
to be of unusual interest. At this time
Mr. Theodore Harrison, head of the
vocal department, and Mrs. George B.
Rhead, of the piano faculty, will -make
their first appearance of the year.
Mr. Anthony Whitmire, who was heard
to such advantage in connection with
the orchestra program a few weeks
ago, will also contribute a group of
violin numbers.
/The next Choral Union concert,
which will take place in Hill audi-
torium on the evening of Monday, De-
cember 13, will bring to Ann Arbor
one of the most illustrious violin vir-
tuosos on the concert platform.
Mischa Elman takes high rank among
master violinists and at this, his first
Ann Arbor appearance; the Ann Arbor
music-loving public will have an op-
portunity of listening to a most inter-
esting program.
During his past five tours of America
he has played at 600 concerts and re-
citals, all of them to capacity audi-
ences, and at most of the concerts,
hundreds were turned away. Elman
is now making his sixth tour of Amer-
ica, and the demands for his concerts

indicate it will be his banner year.
No matter from which side the life
of Mischa Elman is reviewed, the
thoughtful student of human events is
certain to declare that the young Rus-
sian genius is an unsolveable mystery.
Gifts like his cannot be explained. As
an artist he charms, fascinates, up-
lifts, and his influence upon the public
s the same, no matter in which coun-
try he plays; be his auditors. critics,
connoisseurs, aristocrats, or just plain
mortals, it is much the same;. all mar-
vel at his accomplishments and won-
der at his achievements. When Elman
first appeared in this country, the first
thing said of him was that he had cre-
ated a new epoch in violin playing,
and it is not extravagant to state that
the concerts of this wonderfully en-
owed Russian in America have stim-
elated violin students, and the sale of
violin compositions to a remarkable
degree. His concerts have helped ar-

U At The Theatres
-_ Good Bill at the Majestic
g Unquestionably "The Mystic Bird,"
n the headline act of the present Ma-
r jestic prigran, is a marvel. More won-
e derful and marvelous than mystic,
"The Mystic Bird" was all and more
than the theater-goers were led to ex-
pect. The vilin playing of Master
Paul was a feature in itself; but when
the tiny little canary began to sing,
the people sat almost breathless. The
imitation of the bird calls was per-
il feet, and the canary correctly imitated
e the calls of such birds as the wren,
y the cat bird, robin and the whippoorwill
n with remarkable ability. Last, but not
least, the little yellow canary sang
f- "The Mocking Bird," accompanied by
l the violin.
* La Petite Violette-thafs her stage
- name, of course, as she is really the
l wife of Signor Franz-is one of the
f most petite individuals that ever ap-
I peared on a Majestic program. She's
t agile, clever, quick and athletic and
[ performs many daring stunts with the
Sig. Franz troupe who are closing the
bill for the first half of the week.
Arthur Rigby is a sure cure for the
blues, but then Arthur has been mak-
ing the public laugh for quite a few
years, having been principal comedian
with some of the leading mistrel or-
ganizations. His line of talk is fresh
t from the joke factory, and Arthur
t knows how to put them over.
The comedy sketch of Jack Kennedy
-.& Co. is a novel one. It is called,
"The Flare-Back." It has lots of
laughable situations and some dra-
matic value. It was written by Wil-
lard Mack.
All in all, the present vaudeville
bill is about the strongest novelty of

Frances Starr in "aidIe-Odile"
One of the many attractions to be
' seen in Ann Arbor thiscseason is
Frances Starr, who will come to the
Whitney Theatre on Thursday, De-
cember 9, in David Belasco's produc-
tion of "Marie-Odile." In this play,
which is from the pen of Edward
Knoblauch, author of "Kismet," "The
Faun," and "Milestones," the last in
conjunction with Arnold Bennett, Miss
Starr is said to have a new kind of
role entirely different from her previ-
ous portrayals. In "Marie-Odile" shd
appears as a convent novice who is
the embodiment of childish innocence.
tists of lesser gifts, and indeed, one
is justified in declaring that he has
established a new popularity for the
"King of Instruments."
The historic Gewandhaus in Leipsig
has ever frowned upon "prodigies."
The archives in this institution show
that only two exceptions have been
made allowing "wunderkinder" to ap-
pear at Gewandhaus concerts - the
first was the late Joseph Joachim,
and the second, Mischa Elman. This
in itself constitutes a novel incident
in the annals of musical performances.
As in the case of Joachim, Elman's
prodigy years did not spoil his ca-
reer. For a time, the little Russian
was withdrawn from public appear-
ance in order to pursue his studies
with Professor Auer in St. Petersburg,
but when he returned to the concert
platform, the world beheld a musical
miracle worker.
What is the magic in Elman's play-
ing? To some, it is the big soulful
tone with a G string, deep and rich
like the 'cello; another says the nagic
of Elman's playing is his magnetism;

others declare it is Elman's interpre-
tative skill that is extraordinary, and
right here, let it be said that Elman
does not favor one school of composi-
tion more than another. Speak-
ing for himself on this point,
Elman stated, "A true artist must re-
vere every school of music and must
play the masterpieces of every famous
composer; that is all there is to it."
He will offer the following program
at his appearance in Hill auditorium:
Concerto, E minor, Op. 64.:.......
.. .............. . Mendelssohn
Allegro molto appassionat; Andante;
Allegro, molto vivace.
Faust Fantasy ...........Wieniawski
The Call of the Plains...........
.....Rubin Goldmark

The importance of the American
tent hospital in France may be better
appreciated by a view of the conditions
of the troops now on the battle front.
If we take a trip in imiagination to
the theater of war we see two lines
of trenches drawn up at a short dis-
tance apart. In one of these, in
which the Germans are stationed,
come those heavy booming notes of
the great artillery now used by them
in their fighting. On the other side
a of the trenches are the troops of
France, England and Belgium, and it
is with these men that we are immedi-
ately concerned.
Back of each of these trenches are
the dugouts for receiving the wounded.
They are brought here and cared for,
until the fire ceases enough at night
to permit of their removal. No am-
bulances come to these temporary.
hospitals except the little cars driven
by the American college volunteers.
One of the reasons for there being
no ambulances on the firing line with
the exception of the Fords, is that the
heavy shell-fire tears up the roads so
much that the little cars are forced
often to make long detours and be-
cause of their lightness they can well
do this.
Sometimes it happens that the
wounded are so numerous that the
ambulances can not handle them and
many of them are brought from the
bloody dressing rooms to the hospitals
in horse drawn vehicles, and even
wheelbarrows are sometimes used.
The men after being transported to,
the field hospitals are first carefully
examined and if they have any chance
at all for life are taken to the nearest
town where facilities for operating
are found. When convalescent the
wounded are taken to some town, usu-
ally in the south of France, where
many hotels for tourists have been
turned into sanitariums for the care
of the soldiers.
Many of the most serious cases are
sent to the American ambulance hos-
