idea of a senior wrangleris a'23 man trying to work
up a lather with the wrong kind of shaving cream.
T here's no "wrangling" necessary to get a
lather with Williams' Shaving Cream. Squeeze
out a spendthrift's dab or a tightwad's dab-it's
all the same. Either way you geta big, efficient

eight performances of Magler's "Sym-
phony of a Thousand ,Voices" given
by the Philadelphia Symphony or-

During the two operag' seasonfi just
passed, Whiteliilil has sung exclusive
Jy at the Mvetropolitan opera where
his mature art and magnificent voice
have won for him .a steadily widenin"
circle of admirers. In such roles as
Amnfo'tas in "Parsifal," Wotan in
'"Die Walkukre," Kurwenal in "Tris-
tan und Isolde" and , Wolfram in
"Tannhaeuser" he is acknowledged tc
have no superior, while his singing Pr
the High Priest in "Samsun and Deli-
lah," Athanael in "Thais," Amonasro,
in "Aida" and Valentine in "Faust"
never fails to arouse enthusiasm. A
most notable feature of Whitehills
singing is his. extraordinary ability,
as a linguist. He sings, operatic roles
~in four languages and his enunciation
is commonly cited as the most per-!
fect of any singer 'now before the
public. His voice is of heroic pro-
portions, rich and resonant and sup-
ported by histrionic ability and Intel-
lectual power rare among sinn~ers.
