The Bee has a defined policy, as ha
been slated before In this place, with re
gard to pupiltt' recitals. The Bee does not
"give away" Us advertising space to any
one. However, to encourage the local
teachers and their students, The Bee de
clares and announces Itself very happy to
give free space for the announcement. In
advance, that the recital will take place,
giving the names of the participants and
the pieces they will play or sing, unless
the program la entirely too long.
Here The Bee has to draw the line. The
Bee does not wish Its musical critic to at
tend pupil's recitals, as muslo critic of
The Bee. The Bee does not believe that
the work of pupils Is a subject for news
paper criticism. As The Bee has not re
porters enough to go around to all the
pupils' recitals which occur during the
season, mercl to report the recital; and.
as each teacher thinks his or her own re
cital of paramount Importance, The Bee
has adoptnd this policy, regardless of Its
musical critic. The result Is that the music
critic has come In for censure and blamo
for not attending recitals of pupils which
have no doubt been highly commendable.
But such censure and blame are In reality
aspersions on The Bee.
The musloale given by several advanced
pupils of Mr. Landow last week before an
audience of the representative people of
Omaha at the Lyrlo was attended by this
writer, but merely as a guest. Here Is an
event which personally he would like to
have made comment upon, especially butl
of whom, more later on.
The fact of orchestral accompaniment
itself, would have made Mr. Landsberg's
recital by his pianoforte Btudents, a pro
gram which It would be a pleasure to pass
comment upon. It was certainly well
Miss Bella Robinson, so rumor says, had
a pupil, Mr. Frank Moss, who gave a
most Interesting program, a week ago Fri
day night. As It was practically the last
"work" rehearsal of his choir for the sea
son, (the next few being given over to
other matters than church music), It was
Impossible for the writer to attend, even
as an interested listener. Miss Robinson
has shown much excellent work before
that of this last exponent.
Then Mr. Duffield's annual program pre
sented Interesting pupils In a recital which
frcm the ground of personal friendship
alone would have been an occasion for
paying a compliment to one who la an
actual associate In recital work.
But friend and unfriend alike, must be
equal before the law. There have been
other recitals also which the writer would
very much like to have attended, for In
stance, the recital of talented pupils of a
local pianist, pupils who are going abroad
to study. One of the most Important of
these fell on a rehearsal night, which pre
vented his attendance. He heard excellent
reports, however, of these promising young

It might surprise the readers of thla
column to know that the writer has twice
this season asked to be relieved of the
work and dutiea of the musical editorship
of this column. He has been kindly but
firmly told that no matter who waa on
The Bee, that policy concerning pupils'
recitals must stand. Omaha la not a vil
lage. The Bee Is willing to do Its share,
but It cannot afford to pay a muslo crltlo
(competent enough to pass upon the muslo
1 ' which affects the city's welfare at large)
enough salary to make it worth his wlvle
to give up rehearsals, engagements, les
sons, etc., to "write up" the doings of the
many, many pupils of the ever-growing
list of teachera of Omaha.
After all, the "pupils recital" Is purely
and simply advertising. If It were any
thing else It would' not ask nor desire pub
lic comment.' The village Idea of "seeing
your name In the paper" does not belong
to the city, nor to city growth.
The recital which Is given before the
friends of the pupil, so that the pupil may
grow accustomed to an audience, la a most
excellent thing. These should be given by
every teacher, from Urn to time.
But teacher should not take to them
selves the credit of work which had been
done by others, years of it perhaps, and
that Is the danger of the business side of
1 the pupils' recital gaining ascendancy.
With no apology nor explanation, the
writer will reprint her something which
he wrote a couple of years ago about
pupils' recitals, In an article which waa
reprinted and given promlent place, too, in
the Chicago Musical Leader and Concert
Uoer; "It might be an excellent idea to print,
on the program, the time of study one had
spent with the teaoher who glvea the re
cital. For example, Mist Marie Light
finger (third year): Mlsa Jane Merry voice
(second year): Mr. Al Legro (first year):
J1m Ann Dante (second month): Miss Ada
Gio (third week).
"Thla would be a fair and honest way to
compile a pupils' recital program. Who
will be th first to adopt it?"
This Is no reflection on any local teacher;
would that tt were only a local fact. But
the trouble Is, that Jhe matter la of general
import, and that Is why the article In
question appealed to the Chicago paper

this growth of a capable young woman,

what was said of her when she was bid

habits of Industrious application It seems
reasonably certain that sue will come to

BRAND new revised edition of
"The AlaBkan" now made over
Into a genuine fun-making mu
sical melange will be the at
traction at The Brandeis Thea
ter on tomorrow matinee and
night and Tuesday nlghl. "The Alaskan"
comes to us now from a run of five months
In Chicago. The complete Chicago produc
tion Intact will be brought here. Richard
F. Carroll in the part of Walslngton Watts,
a Btranded theatrical manager, has a part
exactly suited to his peculiar talent. Gus
Welnburg as Prof. Knlcklebein Is promi
nent amongst the funmakers, and is given
ample opportunity to extract many laughs
with the aid of "his laughing powder."
Detmar Poppen will be welcomed as Totem
Pole Pete, while Al Rauh will show his
splendid voice to advantage as Richard Att-
water; Jessie .Stone as . Arlce Easton,
Alice Keen as Mrs. Good Better Best,
Etta Lockhart as Kuko, an Esqulmo child
of nature, also Nellie Templeton as La
Lu La, not forgetting Leo Kendall In the
character of "Snowball," the polar bear,
will all be welcomed. The large chorus of
Esquimaux girls and miners Is again a
strong factor in this season's production.
With a record of over one hundred nights
at the Savoy Theater in New York City,
and a tremendous hit at Powers Theater;
Chicago, Margaret Anglin will bring "The
Awakening of Helena Richie" to the Bran-
dels Theater, Thursday evening for an en
gagement of three nights and Saturday
matinee. The engagement has a twofold
Interest from the fact of the star's popu
larity and also that It Is a dramatization
of Margaret Deland'a widely read novel
of the same name. The play Is by Char
lotte Thompson, a young Calffomlan dram
atist, who has already several successful
playa to her credit. "The Awakening of
Helena Richie," which perhaps is Mrs. De
mand's most successful story of old Chester,
uses the people thereof as the background'
of a drama of quiet intensity with Helena
Richie and that splendid creation of her
Inventive genius, Dr. Lavendar, as the cen
tral figure. We must not, however, forget
the little lad, David Allison, who was the
unconscious and innocent means of restor
ing to Helena her sense of duty and who
supported her better resolution.
These three won for Mrs. T)eland a glor
ious fame throughout the length and
breadth of the land and beyond the seas.
In the role of Helena, Miss Anglin Is said
to be doing her best work of her career and
she is furthermore credited with an ad
mirable company of players In her support
The play is one of lights and shades and
there should be some capital character
studies. Charlotte Thompson has made the
play in tour acts, three of which are in
Helena's parlor and the second In her gar
den. Although the note of tragedy Is
sounded, there is much that Is of lighter
nature in the play, Miss Anglln's company

Omaha will have an opportunity of seeing
tne eminent Jewish tragedian, Jacob P.
Adler on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thurs
day evenings. June T, S and I at The Bran
deis Theater. For this engagement Mr.
Adler has selected two of the best plays in
his repertoire. On Tuesday evening he will
present his latest and greatest success,
"God's Punishment," a modern drama,
which has had a run of almost a season
in the Academy of Music, New York. On
Wednesday evening will be given Jacob
Gordln a masterpiece, "The Stranger." This
play has been adapted from Lord Tenny
son'a "Enoch Arden." After the first
performance of "Gods Punishment" In
New York City, the dramatlo critics her
alded Mr. Adler as the greatest interpreter
of the drama today. On of the papers re
marked "Although th performance of
'God' a Punishment' was In Yiddish, and
there were hundreds of people in th au
dience who had no conception of the lan
guage. Mr. Adler's portrayal was so real
istic and so distinct and his every word and
gesture so true to life, that th lints wr
clearly comprehended by every person in
the audience." For the coming engagament,
Mr. Adler, Messrs. Tornberg, Glnsburg,
Shoengold. Hochstlne. Carr and Mann;
Misses Silbert, Keasler, Barnett, Jacobl,
and the entir original cast, the same that
played so successfully In New York. Phila
delphia and Boston.
Mrs. Flske's coming is an event of th
season always, and this time It will be the
more wTicome, because sh will show her
self la mure than on role, Ou Friday

Mikado," which Is to be offered under the
management of the Messrs. Shubert nnd
William A. Brady at the Casino theater

in "Havana," In which he starred last year.
Mr. Powers will be on the road during all
of the coming season.
The Coburn Players, modeled after tha
Ben Greet Players, will appear three times
In two days upon the lawn of the White
House in Washington, with .the approval
and consent of President Taft. Tho dates
are June 16 and 17 and the plays to be

evening, June 10, she will open her en
gagement In "Becky eharpe," and on Sat
urday at a special matinee she will re
peat this play. Saturday evening she will
play Ibsen's "Pillars of Society," the chief
of her season's productions. This Is
most attractive program, and Insures that
the Brandeis will be filled at each per
formance. "Sham," the clever comedy of manners
In which Miss Crossmati was seen last tall,
will be the bill for the week at the Boyd.
It will give Miss Lang a splendid oppor
tunity to continue her work as a comedi
enne, and will also afford her the first
chance to exhibit to the women folks her
new spring gpwns, for the play is a "dress"
affair, and requires much show of cos
tumes. The company is well caBt, and the
production is under direction of Mr. Wood
ward, who gives It his personal attention.
This means that tho settings will be of the
richest and most appropriate. The first per
formance will be given at a matinee this
afternoon, and the piece will be repeated
each evening during the week, with other
matineea on Tuesday, Thursday and Satur
day. In presenting the dramatic version of
"St. Elmo," the Rocedla Stock company at
the Gayety theater will have the attention
of thousands right here In Omaha, who
have read the book and who followed the
story with keen Interest down through the
various chapters, appreciating the stalwart
character of St. Elmo, sympathizing with
Edna during her adversity until. In the
closing chapter, they rejoice in the bringing
together of the two loving hearts. The
various sub-plots contained in the book
have been closely adhered to, and all the
essential characters in the story will be
recognized with no difficulty by those who
have read the book. The piece will be pre
sented with special scenery and correct

vaudeville season next Sunday afternoon,

have a chance to see the real, genuine pole,
which Mr. Sunderland bought from the
Indians on his trip to Alaska last summer.
