wan torpedoed by a Gerrnan
submarine. Three very dis
tinguished gentlemen. Inti
mately connected with th theater, and
each a power for good, went down with
thxt great steamer, and, although the
body of but one has been found, but lit
tle doubt la left as to the fate of all.
Charles Frohman was the most noted
manager of his day; neither England nor
America, nor any other country, has
yet produced a man whose genius for
big things was so marked, nor who had
so well developed the faculty of also
looking after the little things. " Ha has
otood alone at the very front, of the
producing managers of the world for
years. In this country his name haa been
the guaranty of excellence. , His Influ
ence on the progress of the theater, In
all its activities, has been beyond cal
culation or understanding, and It . has
been always for good. Omaha will hare
lost a good friend in Charles Frohman,
for he was one big man of tha stage
who did not forget this town; his "stars"
played here regularly, and hla biggest
and most expensive productions and com
panies visited us In turn. Volumes can,
and very likely will, be written about
him and his work; at this time It must
suffice to say hla loss to the theater Is
are near irreparable as that of any one
man could be. i
Mr. . Charles Klein was an ' author of
long experience, best known, perhaps, be
- cause of his "Lion and tho Mouse," and
similar dramas. He had written much
of the lighter comedies, and some farces,
but for several years had devoted Jilm
self to the study of the more serious
drama, and was In hopes of giving the
world a masterpiece. Justus Miles For
ma n, singularly enough, had Just pro
duced for Mr. Frohman In New York
"The Hyphen," a comedy dealli.g with
the patriotic thought of the day; the
action of the play turning on the rela
tion between Germans who had become
Americans a-d one who persisted in re
maining a "German-American." On the
hyphen the fabric of the drama hung. '
Mr. Forman had long ago , established
hlmtelf ns an author, end his contribu
tions to the literature of his day ere
many and worthy.
One of the most promising signs for
the future lu Omaha is the organization
of a local branch of the Drama league.
The purpose of. this organization, that
of giving sustaining support to what Is
good at the theater. Is worthy of the
attention it has received in other com
munities, and which it will certainly gel
here. H Is not u "highbrow" organisa
tion, nor does it morciy meddle in the
el fairs of the theater. It Is competed o.
seilous men and women, who have a
lull al preciatton of the responsibilities
th y have assumed Mi connection with
the work they nave undertaken, and who
go about tlietr buslne in a way that
is both unobstrusive and effective. In du
time further rtTerence will be made to
the league and its alma.
Now tiiat the Orpheum season, with
this ii U, reaches lis termination, Man
a ;ct ltyrnc taVc'j this opportunity to
(hank patrons for their part in making
' the latt niu? i.iouths ono of tho most
pi.r;tehK' fceatonj In the history of the
theater. Thu attendance has been such
aa to Juiitify both the faith the Orpheum
circuit has manifested in Omaha and tha
assurance on the part of the public that j
It wants wholesome diversion at economi
A glance backward over the season will
suffice to show that Orpheum offerings
have been. In at least several phases,
more than entertaiUng. Some of them,
especially in the field of music, have been
diB'.inciiy cultural. Only recently the
most distinguished of women 'cellists,
La Ruegyer, was an Orpheum feature
appenll'iir to the loftiest of musical tastes,
and of the same high quality was the
singing of Mme. Jumelll, a prima donna
of International fame. There was also
Theodore Bendlx, with hui four associ
ates, whose parlor music proved a par
ticular delight to Orpheum audiences.
In the dramatic field, likewise, there
have been some unusual offerings. The
sctikon wss period' last August with
Arnold Daly in one of Shaw's) most satiri
cal one-act plays. Later cam Claude
Glllitigwaier. who presented a thrilling
dramatic episode, and later still came

Regarding popular attractions of a high
abundance of them. Gertrude Hoffmann
with her revue was seen at prices within
tho easy reach of people who either do
not desire or cannot afford to pay f2 to,
see the celebrities of the stage. Kitty
Gordon, Emma Carus, Blanche Ring,
Elizabeth Murray, Hyams and Mclntyre
and Billy B. Van were a few of the others
especially approved by Orpheum au
diences. For the final bill of the Orpheum sea
son, which closes Saturday night. May
If:, the stellar attraction will be Miss
Joan Sawyer, a dancer who has won the
reputation of 'being the most beautiful
wnltxer in the world. . In New Tork she
has been named "the high priestess of
the danoe." For an engagement of twenty
weeks she was the favorite . dancer at
the .Palace theater. New York CUy. In
her work she Is ably, assisted by Georga
Karcourt and her own orchestra.
Another featured act this week la to
be contributed by the musical comedy
favorites, Charlotte Greenwood and Sid
ney Grant, They were last seen here In
"The Candy 8hop" and more recently
they were featured with "Pretty Mrs.
Hmlth." Miss Greenwood Is known gen
erally aa "the girl with the funny kick."
Singing, dancing and light ' comedy are
the chief elements of the skit to be of
fered by Percy Bronson and Winnie
Baldwin. ' Comedy, In addition to
harmonious vocal work, characterizes
