conclui-lon Is Inevitable thai thfie is some
thing I'lfi lhst the theatergoers HkeCohun
to n iinslil 'iablii extent. If ho, why?
The answer Im In part that Cohan's musl

PUldlng I wis nlwaya smart as a child.
Mis. I''leUlln You are still smart as a
Of course this Is not the whole story.
Worn people have been Impressed with the
rather cheap and obvloui philosophy of life
which Cohan emitted In such verses as
Life's funny proposition after all," de
livered as a soliloquy, sitting- on a crack-r
box and with the house dark to give Im
pr.sslvenees. Thl la, of course, very easy.
It consists of saying; In solemn manner no one would ever think of disputing,
with the result that not very acute people
fold their hands on their stomachs, sigh
end say "How true."
Another attribute which has made for
Cohan's vogue Is his dancing, and he can
of course, dan ie In a manner to charm wild
beasta. His clothes which just miss being
the real thing are mistaken by many , for
being the acme of smartness.
As playwrtter his chief fault has been
overplottlng and this la not a fault which
has hurt his popularity. Aa a atage mana
ger he la not aurpassed and the result Is
that chorl drilled by him dance and
maneuver with a snap, a sip and an ap
parent test which la quite delightful and
cult unrivalled.
These are some of the reasons why Cohan
Is famous. They are not all complimen
tary to the general publlo taste. Cohan
plays are described by those who like
them best as "classy." It is quite fitting
that people who have no other adjective
than "classy" should, admire the Cohan
brand of entertainment.
Miss Helen Ware Is to appear at Boyd's
tonight In Charles Klein's play, "The Third
Degree," acting for the first time here the
role of Annie Jeffries, wife of a man, who,
wrongly suspected of a murder and sub
Joctcd by the police to that Inhuman and
unconstitutional form of torture known as
the third degree. Through the Ingenuity
and determination of his wife, whom' he
found In a humble station in life, the man
Is ultimately cleared.
miss ware s acting in this , play was
warmly commended In New Ybrk, Boston
and, reamtly. Chicago. Her flashing por
terday" will b well remembered, and It
was In that part that she first attracted
the attention of the general playgolng
body. It was followed by a strong, som
ber study of girl of the Bowery In
Arnold Italy's production of "Regenera
tion." Her Emma Brooks In "Paid In
Full," when that play was first produced
In Chicago, was another classic.
Mlsa War was born In San Francisco,
anl, though no member of her family had
followed the profession of acting, she wns
much In the atmosphere of theatrical life
ss a child from the fact that her father
had a share In building severSl Important
playhouses. After leaving high school she
studied medicine for a short time and then
became a grammar school teacher. Later
she specialised In kindergarten work and
held a position as teacher of children under
the New York Board of Kducatlon.
It was while sho was living In New York
that she and a friend were accepted as
extra women for Miss Maudn Adams' pio
ductlon of "The Little Minister" at the
Kinplre theater, and It la said that be
cause Mlsa Ware, appearing na the wife
of a poor weaver In that play, did not
wear high-heeled shoes that she attracted
the admiring attention of the late Joseph
M. Francceur, an astute and exacting
stage manager. Her first big opportunity
came one evening when Mlsa Blanche
Bates, then acting In "Under Two Flags,"
fell 111, and at an hour's notice Miss Ware

"Tho Third Degree to Play One Week at the Boyd, Beginning Tonight
Elcnor Glynn's "Three Weeks" to Be at the Burwood for Pour
NightsWill M. Cressy at Orpheum and Porter J. White at the Krug.
HE Third Degree" begins an
engagement of one week at the
Boyd a tonight, and It Is ex
pected that this, Charles
Klein's latest play, will prove
as great In point of con
temporaneous Interest as It Is said to
have been In New York and Chicago. To
the few who may know the true meaning
of the title of "The Third Degree" It may
be aald to concern that phase of the un
written law which falls In favor of the
police In their frequently employed method
of gaining a confession from a supposed
criminal. Mr. Klein- has taken a rather
delicate subject for dramatic material, but
It la aald that he has overcome the diffi
culties In an entertaining and pleasing
manner. Although other dramatists have
dealt with the subject of hypnotism, Mr.
. Klein Is remembered to have been the first
j,'if our own playrlghts to use hypnotic sug
gestion In the -story of a play, when In
lSil7 his "Dr. Ilelgraff" was produced.
"The Third Degree" tells of the soolal
undoing of Howard Jeffries, Jr., through
his marriage with a true, womanly-apirlted
shop girl. The boy's uttra-arletocratlc
father cuta him from family ties with a
paltry allowance, which causea Howard to
face extreme need. In anarch of funds,' he
came to the art studio of a "frat" mate
who still owes him a college debt. In the
B pe of a loan. While feeling his cups,
ffrlea falls asleep on a sofa. Ills friend,
bankrupt and desperate, steps Into an ad
joining room and, fulfilling a threat, com
mits auleldo. The police arrive before Jef
fr itu'leai ns of the crime and he la seised
,aV its perpetrator, put through a long
sj "sweating" by an unscrupulous police cap
tain and finally made to confess murder.
The Influence of a sincere wife In the bat
tle for her hu'band'a life clears him and
wins for her the affections of her father-in-law.
"The Third Deree" comes here direct from
te Hudson theater. New York, and the II
Irt.l, Chicago, and Henry D. Harris prom
ises the first cast. Including Helen Ware,
LJda McMillan, Ralph Delmore, Jamea
Beely, Malcolm Duncan, Fraser Coulter,

Much haa been aald and written about the
play, "Three Weeks," booked to appear
at the Burwood, for four nlghta, starting
thla evening aa to Its being moral or other
wise. No book, even among the "six best
sellers", has been so widely read or dis
cussed, not only in America but In Eu
rope, and It la a fact that perhaps a ma
jority of those who have read the book
have done so with the one Idea of whetting
their appetite for sensationalism, i'lt to
the reader who thinks, who tries ever so
little to delve beneath the surface of things,
the novel shows that Mra Glyn had a
purpoae and a great one, for It leads up to
the greatest question that Is confronting
every throne In the old world today, as
well as the leaders of society In our own
country the marriage of royalty, of state
and convenience, the marriage where no
thought or Idea of love Is entertained. Such
? marriage, Mrs. Glyn believes, Is Immoral

usual types thill the play demands. There

Gordon MendelHKonn, the young Omaha
born actor, last seen here In support of
Mary Hhaw, Is now playing the role of
Phillip Sarsdale In one of "Blue Mouse"
companies. Mendelssohn Is playing the
part with success too, as witness the fol
lowing comment in the Detroit News:
One of the cleverest bits of acting In
The Blue Mouse" production at the Oar-
rlck theater was done by Gordon Mendel-
ashon, a former Detroit boy, who was edu
cated In the local schools. Mendelssohn
has the difficult role of the serlous-mlnded
suitor for the hand of the "Blue Mouse", and he brings to It a keen knowl
edge of the demands of farce, Its speed
Its adroit turns, and Its tinge of burlesque.

HE sentiment of the great mas
ter playwright of all time Is
surely Illustrated better than
ever In our day." said William
It. Crane In a recent Interview.
"What I mean to say." seld Mr. Crane.
"Is that the whole plane of society has
been lifted to some extent I do not pre
tend to be very close In estimating It, but
civilisation must mean something, and It
relates to all factors of life. A pretty
theater with artistic scenery, arranged for
the comfort and pleasure of the audience,
convenient In every respect for the pur
pose of the dramix, seems almost In lt.ielf
to result In refinement In the play pro
ducednot Immediately, or perhaps In any
particular decade, but the tendency of bet
ter living, better dressing,, purer forms of
literature In general Is reflected In the
stage, which In Itself. I think, Is more of
a reflection of modern life than any other
thing In the community."
"Do you take any part In the current dis
cussion about the best way to eotlmate the
value of a play?"
"I have my own Ideas on that point,"
aald Mr. Crane, "though I do not really
go Into argument on the subject. Where
I start In the test la that, so far as the
play goes, the author himself should have
his Intention fathomed In writing it; and
the next, whether he had speech to express
himself adequately. If his Intention la
Impure, then the play will be of the same
sort, and if the contrary Is the case, within,
of course, reasonable limits for theories
on that point are very much at variance
with each other the play will reflect the
easentlal quality of the author's mind.
But, as I say, I think one should start
with what the writer tried to do."

With Will M. Creasy and Miss Blanche

purils night (April li), to hold their yearly
festivities. The night giows darner and
darker; the moon Is in its last quarter and
gives but little light. They climb higher
rnd higher; the trees and rocks and distant
cliffs take on wondrously fantastic ahuptis
In the dim light of the dying moan; only
the hooting of owls and the far-away cry
of the lonely night hawk breaks the sol

fro. and wierd, snake-like forms seem to
writhe and try to claap the wanderers in
their horrible embrace. At midnight a
mighty riaee and the witches
I gather from far and near for their unholy

that follows Mephlsto shows Faust the
never falling "punishment of evil" and the
curtain falls with terror stricken Faust

(HK following letter was sen(
by a Chicago contralto to the
editor of a Chicago musical
paper, and as It has a decidedly
unique ring to it, it may
prove interesting:
"Dear. Mr, : For aome time past I
have been thinking
"What does It profits others when I sing
songs, thinking more of the musical setting
than the words.
"From time to time I have gone to listen
to our great artists, hoping, longing, to
hear aomethlng helpful, and am alwaya disappointed.
"What if .one of our public apeakers
should talk In a rambling way, thinking
only of the beauty of the apeaklng voice?
"His personality might be charming, his
delivery good. He might be even ao great
an orator, but If he did not say something
worth while we would go away pitying that
man, Borrowing because he, to all outward
appearances, ao capable, should be so lack
When we hear a pianist we expect to
hear a aong without words.
"When we hear a vocalist we expect to
hear a song with words. We ought to hear
songs that are chosen carefully, prayerfully
great consideration given to the words,
that they might help and cheer and be an
uplift to all who hear them.
"I wish to say the purpose of my work
will be to give programs this year that are
composed of songs selected from our bent
composers as to verse and music. I will,
In other words, sing only songs that have
a message.
"For when God gave to us voices he ex
pected us to say something when we apeak,
and what la singing but speaking In a
singing tone? Very truly yours for ser
vice, ."
The name of this contralto does not
make any difference, but the idea U a
good one: whether singing la but speaking
in a singing tone or whether It is not, the
fact remains that "When God gave us
voices he expected us to say something."
Yes. He expected us to say something
worth w lille; He expected ua to have aome
thlng to say. And we would all be wise
to follow the example of the Chicago con
tralto. The following very pertinent remarks
were made recently in an article by .Mr.
. J. Henderson, musical editor of the
New York Sun. Mr. Henderson usually
does make pertinent remarks, and these
are on the old. old subject of American
study abroad. tipeaking of the various
teachers in Berlin. Paris nnd other places,
he laconically adds, speaking of one rep
resentative American teacher, "Would
they study with him If his studio waa In
Forty-third street?" He then proceeds to
say: "There Is a lot of nonsense about
this going abroad to study. Another op
portunity to find out Just what it Is that
American students desire Is offered by the
engagement of Mllka Ternlna, one of the
greatest dramatic artists that ever trod
the stage of the Metropolitan opera house,
as the principal teacher of singing at the
Institute of Musical Art. She la already
at work there and now the question arises
whether ambitious young Americans will
flock to study with her. Will they rather
wait till she returns to Europe and then
spend thousanda of dollars to follow her
Instruction, which for many of them can
now be reached at the expenditure of a
l-cent carfare?
'Here la a chance for would-be oDura
darlings to learn their calling at home
under the direction of a past mistress of
the art. It will ' be interesting to note
whether they seise the opportunity qr pass
It by and cross the ocean to study under
one of the American teachers who went
over there simply because being theie
makes better buslnen.
Jean da Kasike haa a , flourishing vocal
school in Paris. He teaches from 10 a. in.
till 7 p. m. He has hundreds of American
pupils. But suppose he were engaged to
teach at the Institute of Musical Art.
Would he have them then? Watch the
Ternlna experiment."
No be would not. Oodowsky, as re
lated before in this mualc column of the
Be. waa not crowded with pupils In
Chicago, nor had he to Injure his health
playing a vast number of piano recitals
Not that any of us heard of. He played
one time at the Cretghton theater (now
the Orpheum.) and waa it nineteen or
twenty-one people who were present?
Something like that anyhow, and Mr.
Joseph Uahm became indiglnant, and then
the more lie thought about It, the worse
It seemed to Mm, and the upahot of the
matter was that Herr Joseph went out
with a subscription paper and sold sub
scriptions arid brought Godowsky back
to Omaha and this time he played to a
full Later the present writer of
this column took a "flyer" on Godowaky In
a recital at the Boyd, and the artist's
drawing powers were then large enough
to fill the house. But students and re
citals were not over-abundant. Now
American pianists make one grand rush
to Berlin to study with one of Godowsky's
assistants, more than likely, for he has
assistants, and he himself Is frequently
on concert engagements.
John McCormack, the new Irish tenor
seems to be the sensation of the musical
hour, over across he water. The writer
heard many things of thla promising young
men two years ago, and a year ago last
summer, heard him In a small part. The.
Irish of New York will doubtless come
to the front, and see to It that McCormack
gets a big welcome when he conies over.
He Is only twenty-five, and the youngest
tenor who ever took a leading role at
Covent Garden, when he began three
years ago at that historic home of opera
The press dispatch states that he has
sung oftener thla year than any other
tenor at the Covent Garden opera, and
that he has made many of his successes
aa co-star with Tetrazzlnl.
Now that he Is a auccess, the press In
England speaks of him as the British
tenor, to which he strenuously1 objects,
demanding that he be spoken of as tho
Irish tenor. I wonder. If he were a Seot
from Edinburgh, would they speak of. him
as the British tenor, "aye mom," I 'voi
der. Methlnks there would be a mixture
of Scottish accents down Fleet street next
A good Joke Is being told,, a really-truly
Joke, and not a press agent'a "yarn." It
a said that one day McCormack sang foi
a manager, and he was orrerea "iwo-a-
"week In the chorus," that Is, two pounda
a week, or about $10. A few months after
wards McCormack's manager was speak
ing of this same manager about McCor
mack, and the man who hud offered the
110 a week Ir the chorus, said By the
way I could use that young fellow now
in a small part." Imagine his surprise
when McCormack's manager pulled out
the morning paper and pointing to the
theatrical advertisements, read: "See this.
Covent Garden. Royal Opera, Klgoleito, to
night, In the cast of characters, the Duke,
Mr. John MtCoi muck. That Is the young
fellow you thought worth two-a-wuek In
the chorus."
It was Mr. Arthur Boosey of the publish
ing firm of Boosey & Co. that Is said to
have first recognixed the ability of the
young Irleh tenor.
Mr. Joseph Gutim has been covering him
aelf with glory and all sorts of fine bright
press notices about his work In Colorado

he of the place that he seriously con

you as one full of humanity, what nxt
do you require , of It. as a dramatic artist?"
"Well, 1 way say In general terms, 1
require that It shall be entertaining.
Frankly, In the theater I do not care a
straw for pleaching or for Instruction
for their own sake. I am quite firm In
the opinion that though 'art for art's
sake' is a catch phrase that Is not to
be carried very far, yet In the particu
lar field of the drama I fec(l that the
play above all things must be enter
taining. It should have an abundance
of human feeling In It. It should be
entertaining on Its merits.
"Perhaps I am old-fashioned about Insist
ing on clean plays, but It so. I know that
there are a good many who feel as I
do and. In fact, If you look over the his
tory of plays for the last twenty-five
years you will find that those plays which
have made the most noise because they
were most shady In some particular or
other have ultimately failed most em
phatically. As you go through the whole
list of successful plays on the stage
at this moment no matter whether
tragic, comic of midway the audiences
that can be relied upon, the audience that
like plays and go to them and pay a fair
price to hear them, are audiences that
WRiit things clean, and they pay for those
that are clean. They are practically the
only places which make much of a suc
cess and not merely run for one season.
Uut are called for year after year. You
find no piece of the unclean kind that
has a continuing popularity."
