MODEL PLACED ON EXHIBITION Xitfeenma of HUlnrlr Chlrftnln of Oner rotrerfni Omnhn Tribe of Indian May lie Seen nt Conn Honnr. A statue. Including pedestal, thirty-tivo feet high, tho fcmblanee of lllnckblrd. also known as Wssh-ln-ga-sabc. nuted chieftain of the Omaha tribe f Indians when II was the ruling force over n nal western area, to be erected on tho lawn of the court house, la an Idea placed be fore the public by John U Webs' er, president of the State Historical sorlety Blackbird was a noted warrior Bnd leader and a friend of the whltrn who never broke, faith, so Mr. Webster dc Clares that Omaha coum find no finer way In which to rommemorate Its earli est authentic history. The city's war veterans are agitating a movement to place a monument In front of the court house, and he believes artistic demands would be satisfied by the niacin ot two fine works of art there. The sub Ject has been laid beforo Architect Jbhn Jatcnscr. Frederick C. Hlbbard. a sculptor of OhI cago, has prepared a model of the pro pored statue ot Blackbird. Mr. Webster was highly pleased with this, and ar rangement have been made to place It today in the entrance to tho court hou on the first floor for public Inspection Mr. Hlbbard spent considerable time studying Indian lineaments and physical makeup. Tho model prepared by him shows blackbird mounted on a powerful horse, ''one arm outstretched, and with the other holding a strap with which to con trol his steed. Tho features arc- rugged and commanding. The Idea of the statue ot Blackbird came to Mr. Hlbbard through reading a peech made by Mr. Webster at n meet ins of the Mississippi Valley Historical association In Omaha, which thus de scribed the chief: "In the earliest authentic days of the Omahas they had & chieftain known na Blackbird. Ho was n daring and in trepid warrior that feared no man and' shunned no danger. Ho had the spirit of leadership that would have done credit to an Alexander when engaged in war fare with his common enemy, the Sioux; but he welcomed and always maintained peaceful relation with, the invading white race. He encouraged the exchange and traffic In commodities between the red men and the white men. as we now ev chance commodities, but in a larger de gree, with tho brown men across (he I'aclflc." Blackbird's followers, obedient to hl command, according f tradition, burled htm upon "Dtackhlrd hill, sitting upon nia favorite war horse, with his face to tho eastward overlooking the Missouri .valley.

Miss Adelyn Wood opened the program with an "Allemande" by D'Albert, fol lowed by "Etne Llebesnovelle" In three movements by Wolff. -MUs Wood has ample technique and plays with clarity and style, her delicately spun runs in the Wolff number being especially ef fective. This novelty to Omaha audiences was a beautiful thing, each movement being true to its name In, atmosphere and tonal coloring, all ot which Was well brought out in the playing, rfor an en core Miss Wood played a "Gavotte-" from the suite in D minor by D'Albert. Mrs. Welpton maintained her well de served reputation for artistic singing in her shard ot the program, her irjejr fleet! contralto voice being used most advan tageously, and her Interpretations being as always, tru to tho spirit ot the song. She sang two groups, opening the first with "Quando a te Weta" from "Faust," by Gounod, following with a brilliant "Mandollnata" that sounded decidedly Mexican and which was sung with vivac ity and abandon. A rather unusual "Lul laby," by Itopartx preceded a "Dance Song," by Thome, which completely fas cinated the audience and won as an en core "Wind Fairies." by Walte. In' her second group Mrs, Welpton did espe cially nice- work in "Summer Italn." by Wllleby, the lovely restful "Oao Tao l Sleep," by lusher, and the exultant "Spring Song." with which she closed the program.
