Speaking of the "Dum-Dum Myth,"
we hope the Daily is not indirectly
referring to some of the songs which
are to appear in the Opera.
And speaking of the word-isn't
"Opera" a term that carries a meaning
ar removed from the actual thing that
students are permitted to gaze upon?
Possibly the connection lies in the ap-
plause-which appears in both concep-
tions of the word.
We suggest that certain Coo-eds,
ow-geds, or Coods cut out the name of
this year's-er-Opera, and paste it
on the mirror of their dressing table.

At the Majestic
Dr. Frederick A. Cook, Arctic ex-
plorer, will head the bill at the Ma-
jestic this afternoon. Dr. Cook is
neither advocating preparedness nor
anpreparedness. His aim is to tell
his version of his North Pole ex-
periences in an interesting manner.

The vaudeville bill presents an in-
teresting variety. "Cheyenne Days," a
typical Wild West show in miniature,
has played continuously to the best
houses both here and abroad since
February, 1910. Miss Adele Von O1l,
who featured in the New York Hippi-
drome, will appear with her horse,
Delmar, who is. considered one of the
most 'perfectly trained animals in the
wcrld. Roping contests and other wild
west features will be introduced.
Creighton and McGreevey present a
travesty on a minstrel comedy which is
guaranteed to bring a smile to the face
of the most confirmed grouch. The
Mudtown Glee club and a quartet from.
the backwoods unite in producing one
of the season's funniest acts.
A complete set of real marionette
actors under unusually elaborate stage
settings, consisting of special scenery
and striking electrical effects, will
furnish an interesting and spectacular
A clever collection of songs by Smith
and Farmer., and a sensational tight
wire act by Josie O'Meers and com-
pany close the bill.
At the Whitnley
John E. Kelhlerd, who appears at the
Whlitney theatre tonight in the title
role of "Macbeth," has achieved an
:nviable reputation in his interpreta-
tion of this exceedingly difficult part.
In coimenting on his work, Mr.
Henry Austin Class, the well known
critic, said: "Mr. Kellard is interest-
ing at a hundred points, and always
pleasantly free from exaggeration. His
coliceptimn of the passage with Ban-
quo's ghost is striking. The ghost
is a mere mirage of hallucination,
and the gradual growth to his mind
as if it were a cloud, slowly taking
place before Macbeth's first outburst,
is a highly original and remarkable
In his dlehneation of the character
of Shylock in '"The Merchant of Ven-
ice," which will be shown this after-
noon, Nr. Kellerd has been described
by the press of New York as present-
ing a remarkable portrayal of this
wonderful creation of Shakespeare.
His perfornmance is intensely human.
Indeed, this human element is the key-
note of all his work, and the one char-
acteristic which, above all others, has
placed him at the head of his pro-
dssion and made him so greatly sought
after by all true lovers of the Bard
