7fake Tliird Local Appearance
Edwin M. Whitney, said by some
critics to be America's roremost
dramatic recitalist, will appear here
tonight in Hill auditorium as the fifth
regularly scheduled number of the an-
nual Oratorical association series. He
will give a reading of Winchell
Smith's play, "The Fortune Hunter."
The speaker is a native American,
being born in New York state, and has
been on the stage about 25 years. In
that time he has appeared before more
than 5,000 apdiences and the appear-
ance here tonight will be his third
in tistcity. Two years ago he gave
"Turn to the Right."
Takes 13 Parts
In the play which he will present
here tonight, Mr. Whitney interprets
the parts of 13 characters. This ist
the largest number of characters rep-r
resented in any of the plays in hist
The speaker is at present director1
of the Whitney Studios of Platformr
Art, which he founded in 1914, and is
actively engaged in several projects
for the furtherance of the art through-
out the country. He still appears reg-
ulamly on the stage himself, being a
comparatvly young man.t
Enlisted In Army .
At the age of 21, shortly after his
graduation from high school, Mr.t
Whitney enlisted in the army for duty
in Cuba during the Spanish-American
war, and at the close of the war had
reached the rank of top-sergeant. He
then,attended the Emerson College ofe
Oratory at Boston, from which hec
graduated in 1902. He immediately
set out upon the stage, with hisc
brothers, as a vocalist and reader, and
has remained in the field ever since.t
Italian Treaty Not
Injurious To Peace
(By Associated Press)
ROME, Dec. 8.--The recently signedI
Italian-Albanian treaty contains not
secret military clauses and in no way
can be considered injurious to peace
in the Balkins, Italian official quarters
stated today.
The treaty, it was asserted, is
merely a pact of friendship and arbi-
tration between Italy and Albania, in-
surig peace, guaranteeing absolute
sovereignty aid territorial integrity
to Albania, and 'concerning and em-
phasizing the principals upheld by the
League of Nations.
Instead of being a means of pene-
tration into Albania, it was described
as a solemn proclamation of Italy's
abstention from internal Albanian af-
fairs. Finally, it was stated, the treaty
was within the Adriatic radius, did not
regard or affect the policy of the Bal-
kans, and that therefore it was absurd
to describe it as injurious to Balkan
Italian newspapers in general at-
tribute the present outburst in south-
ern Europe over the treaty to a re-
sumption of active French influence.

About the time the surgeons were

palace, the palace royal in the center
of the city, was in flames with the
courtyard heaped with great quan-

informed of the destruction of the

palace, Ferdinand remarked fer-
vently: "God's will be done."
It was announced yesterday that
the king would be operated on pro-
bably Thursday, but it was deemed
advisable to proceed with the com-
pletion of Monday's operation, which
consisted of a deep incision and the
removal of extraneous tissues.

"Eskimos have a spiritual and re-
gious life as real or more real than
ur own," according to Dr. Knu
asmussen, Danish explorer, who
poke in Natural Science auditorium
esterday afternbon. "The spiritual
eling of the Eskimo is bound up in
e sense of utter helplessness that is
is in connection with the forces that
overn his life; and the Eskimo phil-
sophers believe that privations and
afferings are the only things that can
pen the mind of man," he said.
In opening his lecture, Dr. Ras-
ussen gave a brief account of the
iaracteristics of the Eskimo, de-
laring that he was like no other
eople, and that line was probably the
rst to find his way here from Asia.
'here are many things that this race

,000 of these people in the part of

Dr. Rasmussen spent three years in
ie North, travelling in that time from
reenland through the northern part
f Canada to Alaska. During this trip
e took every opportunity to learn

ame in contact, many of whom had
ever seen white men, and as a result
i brought back information that has

Their lives are entirely at the mercy
f the seasons, and they are always

The Eskimo thinks about the spirit-

anity and other religions asto be 41-

eld by some of the tribes are the

the aimals existed side by side on the

Stars Are Holfs In ]leaven
A theory which is held in relation
to the heavens is that each star is a
iole in the heavens for the resideice
of a departed spirit of the dead, and
that the moon is the means of coin-
municating back and forth with the
earth. When the moon is invisible,
the theory goes, it is busy transport-
ing the souls back and forth across
the heavens.
The Eskimos have holy men and
prayers just as civilized people, Dr.
Rasmussen continued, and the Eskimo
has his songs and stories just as other
races. The people even in the far-
North play football as a sport; a1-

Dr. Rasmussen told two of the
Eskimo stories; one with the title that
"One should not despise little things,"
which was the story of a mosquito,
and the two men who argued about
whether a deer or a fox had the thick-

est fur and the argument became so
heated that they sat down to count the
hairs. They worked for days and
finally starved t6 death. This is typi-
cal of the stories told by these people,
the speaker said.

"White men may be able to thrive

furnished cattle and supplies to the
natives and they seem to be prosper-

When the natives have adopted
themselves to the new system it is
probable that adventurers will be ad-I
mitted; and it is very likely that they
will find it a desirable place to live.
