Commander H. G. Stuart, U. S. N.,
formerly officer in charge of the na-

was the first witness called by Owen

Robert said that Commander Stuart

prove that a disagreement existed in
the Navy department concerning
these leases, that the navy officer had
not been in accord with the policy

In bringing out tsetimony to prove
there was a disagreement' among na-
val officials in the granting of the
proposed leases, Roberts asked Stuart
to relate his dealings with Fall prior
to the granting of the leases to the

Prior to 'the opening of the opera
season at the Metropolitan- Opera
house, Jeritza is making a concert
tour which includes stops at Harris-
'burg, Atlanta, and Toronto. She is
able to accept but few concert en-
gagements before the regular opera
year opens.
Toured Europe
In the past, Madame Jeritza has
sung with the Vienna opera company.
She has been urged by various di-
.rectors to abandon opera for drama
I or for motion pictures. In regard to
the movies, she says, "It is quite
possible that I might screen well, but
ever since I was a young girl, I have
been co-ordinating vocal and drama-
f tic movement on the stage. I can-
not imagine what it would be like to
portray opera roles in the 'mute'
drama.. Yet it has possibilities and
opportunities which would appeal to,
any artist, and there is something
overwhelming in the thought that one
plays to an audience of millions, and
may appear simultaneously in every
continent of the world."
Jeritza arrived in this country on
the steamship. Olympic early th'is
month after a tour of Europe, and im-
mediately commenced her concert,
which will terminate just before the
opening of the Metropolitan opera
year for which Jeritza is the leading
I soprano.
