Julia Claussen, soloist for tha Mendelssohn choir concert, which will be given at Boyd's theater this evening, haa definite and rather fresh ideas about the war. The world of opera will feel tha effect of tha European war for a generation after tha conflict is ended," she aaya. How many Carusos are lying dead on the battlefields, their voices unheard by tha world 7 How many Linda and Nordl- cas will be orphaned by tha struggle. probably left to die of starvation or ex posure, or at least b. driven into toil which will forever obscure their vocal possibilities from the world." ' "For example," she says, "If your civil war in America had come a few years later, your great genius, Thomas A. Edi son, might have been among the youthful slain in tha ranks of tha dead at Gettys burg, and wa would not today be using his electric lights, his telephones, his phonograph. There ia no doubt, but that many Edisons and other potential geni uses were lost to tha world in that struggle." , "The same thing is happening in Europe today. The whole world will feel the loss. America wlU to a certain extent profit. Prospects are that tha great sing era of the next generation will be Amer icans. Militarism will not have cut through tha ranks of tha living, depriv ing the country of voices that It may have taken generations to perfect."

BLOUSES OF FILMIEST LACE Spring, fresh, verdant and color ful, is the keynote of the decora tions carried out in the spring fash ion opening at the Brandels stores. A profusion of apple blossoms, pink and red roses and luxuriant foliage, transforms the display windows and the entire store Into a garden or woodland, while real canary birds and white Java sparrows In highly ornamental Swiss cages, give Just the proper- touch of "atmosphere" to the whole ensemble. AH the adjectives In Webster's una bridged fall short ot describing the beau ties of the gowns themselves! Tier upon tier of sheer, delicate chiffons end credos cunningly combined with filmy laces and given a brllllont dash by the addition of shimmering gold and sliver lace, or gold and silver beads, all these are Intrrduced to make up a work of art that inspires exclsmatlons of fle.lf ht from all the fair ones who gase thereupon.
