opera singers, some of whom sre accus

to reach home from South Africa, where
their company collapsed. The Jamea Nelson

The repertory consisted of "The Prince of
Pilsen" and similar works. Business waa
bad from the start and at the end of the
seventh week salaries were no longer forth
coming. As the price of living In Johannesburg Is
high, the singers were soon stranded. But,

friends funds were raised to send the com
