The spectacle of the president of the
United States occupying an office in
the capitol building is only another of
a long series or innovations with which
President Wilson has been startling

appeared in his suite at the doors of
the senate chamber and entered into
a detailed discussion of pending bills

the corridor while he discussed the
railroad bills, the vocational education
measures, the general leasing and wa-
ter power bills, the Porto Rico bill,
and the revenue legislation with the
senate steering committee. The hold-
ing of a night session was discussed.
President Wilson will appear at his
capitql office three times a week and
will spend at least one hour with con-
gressmen, delegations of all kinds, and
people who are important enough to
merit an audience. While the pres-
ence of the president in the capitol

lation Is new, the offices have been re-

The following extracts, taken from
Professor Stanley's analytical notes of
the program to be given by the Bos-
ton Symphony orchestra this evening
in Hill auditorium, will be of interest
to patrons of the concert.
The first number is the Symphony in
E flat major, No. 3, "Rhenish," Op. 97,
by Schumann, the famous composer,
who was born in Zwickau, June 8,
1810, and died in Endenich, near Bonn,
July 29, 1856. This composition, which
will always be-known as the "Rhenish"
Symphony, was written shortly after
Schumann was appointed director of
music at Dusseldorf, and.in this work he
strove to express not alone his artistic
joy in the life of the dwellers on the
Rhine, but also the national sig-
nificance of the noble stream. On his
first view of the great cathedral, he
determined to embody his impressions
in a great symphonic work. The in-
stallation of the Archbishop of Geissel
as cardinal in the cathedral at Cologne
furnished the inspiration for the mas-
sively constructed fourth movement.
while the implications of a "folk-
festival on the Rhine" furnished the
material for the finale. The symphony
was first produced at Dusseldorf, Feb.
6, 1851.
The next number is the overture,
"Academic Festival," Op. 80, by
Brahms, who was born in Hamburg,
May 7, 1833, and died in Vienna, April
3, 1897. It was first performed on the
occasion of the conferring of the de-
gree of doctor of philosophy on him
by the University of Breslau .in Jan-
uary, 1881. The work is based on four
songs, all of which are familiar and
dear to the heart of the German stu-
The suite, "L'Arlesienne," No. 1
(music to Alphonse ,Daudet's play), is
by Bizet, who was born in Paris, Oct.
25, 1838, and died in Bougival, June 3,
1875. Daudet's play was first produced
in Paris on Sept. 20, 1872, and for this
occasion entr'acts and incidental mu-
sic were composed by Bizet. A group
of four movements was drawn from
the music and constitutes the suite on
this evening's program.
Richard Wagner, composer of the
overture, "Tannhauser," was born in
Leipzic, May 22, 1813, and died in
Venice, Feb. 13, 1883. This work,
which was ridiculed when it was first
heard, has long since been acknowl-
edged as a masterpiece and its prin-
cipal parts may be named as follows:
(1) "Pilgrims' Song," (2) "Venus
Song," (3) Tannhauser's "Song in
Praise of Venus," and (4) "The Tri-
umph of the Power That Makes for
Good (Pilgrims' Song)."
New Haven, Conn., Jan. 25.-Eighty
candidates of the Yale football eleven
reported for registration at a smoker
given at the University club. Head
Coach Tad Jones was the chief speaker
and brief remarks were made by Line
Coach Dr. Arthur Brides, Captain
Gates, and Trainer John Mack. Advice
was given regarding general physical
condition, which the candidates were
urged0to maintain till next season
closes. They were advised to take
light regular exercises, including

wrestling and boxing.
Jones asked the players to regard
the victories over Harvard and Prince-
ton the past year as starting points for
Yale's new football history. He said
that during the'past fall Yale football
men have shown that the Yale of to-
day is the same as the Yale of yester-
day. He said that in the past Yale has
for several years made the mistake of

"Major Pendennis," in which John
Drew will appear at the Whitney thea-
ter, Friday, night, Feb. 2, is the second
dramatization of a Thackeray novel
by Langdon Mitchell. The first was
"Becky Sharp," written from "Vanity
Fair," in wvhich Mrs. Fiske recently
The present play Is designed prim-
arily as a comedy of character. It
has a rich emotional appeal, and a
strong strain of humor.
In the role of "Major Pendennis,"
Mr. Drew makes a distinct departure
from the line of acting with which his
name has usually been associated.
There is no suggestion of Shakespeare
or the romantic drama in the unfold-
ing of the character of the cynically

Elizabeth Marbury and F. Ray
Comstock are bringing their musical
comedy success, "Very Good Eddie,"
back to the scene of its initial pre-
sentation, the Garrick theater of De-
troit, where it will be seen for the
week commencing next Monday even-
ing, Jan. 29. The usual matinees will
be given on Wednesday and Saturday.
"Very Good Eddie," ran for over a
year in New York. The original cast
includes Ada Lewis, Arthur Ayles-
worth, Mignon McGibney, Georgie
Mack, Anna Orr, Helen Raymond, John
Willard, James Lounsberry, Earl Ben-
ham, Daisy DeWitt and Elliott Taylor.
The plot of the story hinges on the
amusing complications which follow=

Headlining "The Girl in the Gown
Shop," a musical comedy in tabloid
form, the Majestic opened a bill for the
latter part of the week last night
which is one of the best presented at
the playhouse this year. The playlet
is advertised as "a modiste's dream. of
Milady's frills and fancies" and the ef-
fective comedy of Victor Kahn as
Archibald Findem goes a long way to-
ward getting it across. The musical
numbers are fair.
Harry Holman and company in
"Adam Killjoy" add a lot toward the
comedy side of this week's program,
and are easily the second best perform-
ers on the bill.
Permane, the "Wizard of the Con-
certina," opens the performance.
Browning and Dean in "The Minstrel
Man anfd the Wise Guy" are rather
good entertainers, while C. Francis
Reisner as "the Kentucky Kernel"
acts a one-man part in a sucessful
On the whole, the bill is above par.
It is comedy week at the Majestic and
regular laughs are in order.
Call Issued for Syracuse Oarsmen
Syracuse, N. Y., Jan. 25.-Syracuse
oarsmen are bidden to report to Coach

of the Syracuse navy will address the

Dr. Spaeth Seeking Shorter Races
Princeton, N. Y., Jan. 25.-Following
Courtney's renewed argument for a
shorter race at Poughkeepsie comes
one along the same line from Dr.
Spaeth of Princeton. He says in part:
"The Yale-Harvard four-mile race
was inaugurated in imitation of the
Oxford-Cambridge race of somewhat
over four miles on a fast current.
