"The Only Girl," the musical com-
edy success by Victor Herbert and
Henry Blossom, which qualified as a
fine example of musical comedy when
given here last year, will be seen in a
return engagement on Saturday,
The success of "The Only Girl" also
proves that Victor Herbert is the most
versatile of American light opera com-
posers. The character of his musical
genius is also more than ever evi-
denced in this work, there being in

melody and treatment.
Like his associate, Henry Blossom
has also put some of his best work into
"The Only Girl," with the result that

and Blossom's delightful story com-
pletes a rare treat in a musical com-

is a homely offering and its moral is
Kate Watson is known as the "Hoos-
ier Girl" and her make-up reminds one
of Sis Hopkins. She has a large as-
sortment of droll remarks and some
squeaky songs. Her monologue ma-
terial is good and she has a decidedly
original manner of telling her stories.

1'rofessor Scott insisted that 'dawg'
is just as good a pronunciation as
"dog." Uniformity is not important,
lie declared, but speech should be sin-
cere and show culture.
"The beautiful dialect of the south-
erner does not need to be defended,"
said Professor Scott. "New England,
formerly supposed to govern in the
choice of dialect, no longer holds that
honor. I have noticed that the most
cultivated New Englander, when he
warms up, pronounces his 'r' just as
aistinetly as his 'p' and q.'
"We must cultivate the poised, in-
telligent, sincere personality and the
