Learn Nine or Ten to A void
Confusion, Says flootkins.
By Beatrice Collins
Each lang age has its owit dis-
tinctive individuality, and after one
has mastered several foreign lang-
uages, one does not confuse them"
stated Mr. Hootkins, of the French
department recently. "The first
two or three languages are confus-
ing, he continued, "but after one
has studied the ninth or tenth, one
can readily differentiate between
"It is strange," he said, "but each
language presents its own peculiar
mental image to me 'as I speak, or
read it. French gives me the im-.
pression of a .well dressed woman
who knows precisely where she is
going. Each movement is clear'ut
and distinct."
"Spanish makes me think of a
very dignified gentleman, who is
always on his honor, and will take
offense at the slightest provoca-.
tion." . .
"Italian does not present to me
any human figure. Though the
language is a personal one, I hear
in it, only the smooth rhythm of
nTusic. German. when I read it,
calls to rmy mind, the picture of a
regiment, which is marching along
at a steady pace."
"Poetry is different," he continu-
ed, "French poetry is harsh and
masculine; German is feminine;
and Spanish is affable, and good-
"In Hebrew, I hear sometimes

the rolling of thunder, and again,
,the swishing of water. It is rhyth-
mic, dignified, sloW, and gives me
the impression of ome one pacing
up and down in deep thought. Ara-
maic makes me visualize a child
running quickly to arid fro.",
"Language is always the result of
the people who speak it. Of course
English is my own language; there-
fore, I cannot judge it fairly. How-
ever it presents to me the picture
of a man'hammering, rapidly, con-
Stantly." F:

Lockit in Sir Nigel Playfair's pro-
duction of the popular satiric mus-
ical play, "The Beggar's Opera," by
John Gay, which is being present-

Lockit Will Appear
Here This, Week End
Miss Vera Hurst will play the role
of Lucy Lockit in Sir Nigel Play-
fair's production of "The Beggar's
Opera" which is to play here Fri-
day and Saturday nights and Sat-
urday, afternoon. Her lively por-
trayal of the role is making her
dear to theatre goers where ever'
the production appears.
Siheb its first performance, at
Lincoln's Inn Field Theatre, Lon-
don, on January 29,;1728, "The Beg-
gar's Opera" has been popular both
as a literary achievement and as
a vehicle for production. It was a
direct satire upon the government
of Sir Robert Walpole's ministery
and Italian Grand Opera and made
its author, John Gay, immortal as
one of the greatest satirists of all
It has made both theatrical and
political history as well as literary.
Lavinia Fenton, who was the orig-
inal Polly Peachum, achieved fame
over night as one of England's
greatest actresses, through her
work in that part, and the duel
between Alexander Hamilton and
Aaron Burr was said to have been
brought about by the charms of
the "Polly" then playing in New
Its first production outside of the
British Isles was in Jamaica in 1733
and it yas brought to the United
States, then the colonies, seventeen
years later. Its success at that time
is appalnt from the fact that since
that time i has enjoyed 750 per-
formances in this country and that
it was George Washington's favor-
ite play.
The musical numbers used in it
embrace over sixty old airs mostly
of English, Welsh, Scotch and Irish
origin. Some of them were written
by cuch great figures as Hanel,

Home Furnishings
Can Ba Rejuvenated
at Moderate Outlay
Homes and home furnishings that
have grown old and shabby can be
rejuvenated and redecorated in an
individualized modern taste more
economically and attractively to-
day than at a'y time in the last
twenty years.
Ross Crane, one of Anerica's
leading interior decorators, is au-
thority for the statement that Ihe
time has never been, and may not
again be so opportune for the home
owner to replace peeling paint.
failing furniture, shabby upholstery
and tthveadbare rugs.
They all agree that it is uneco-
nomic to neglect the home, thrifty
to improve it. Keeping it up to a
standard helps the occupants keep
pace' with modern thought, and th-
advancing social plane. Replace-
ments and improvements are owed
to the younger generation so that
they may develop a sense of pride!
and affection for home life.
Redecoration of the home is an
adventure and creates a new in-
terest, in living. Freshening the
walls with paint, calcimne, or new
paper is the first step. A new rug.
for an old one often helps in es-
tablishing an entirely fresh and
new color scheme.
The existing pieces of furniture
that have good "lines" should, how-
ever, be the nucleus, of the rejuven-
ated home. Faded or shabby cover-
ings must be replaced, of course,'
and usually it is advisable to call in
an experienced upholsterer or dec-
