War May Shift the
Opera Singers from

Mm. Julia Clatissen, soloist for the
Mendelssohn choir concert, which will be
given at Boyd's theater this evening, has
definite and rather fresh ideas about the
The world of opera will feel the effect
of the European war for a generation
atter the conflict Is ended," she says.
"How many Carusos are lylna: dead on
the battlefields, their voices unheard by
the world? How many Linda and Nordl-
cas will be orphaned by the struggle,
probably left to die of starvation or ex
posure, or at leaat be driven into toll
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 the ranks of the dead at Gettys
burg, and we would not today be using
his eleotrlo lights, his telephones, his
phonograph. There is no doubt, but that
many Ed I sons and other potential geni
uses were lost to the world In that
struggle." , ,
"The same thing la happening in Europe
today. The whole world will feel the
loas. America will to a certain extent
profit. Prospects are that the great sing
ers of the next generation will be Amer
icans. Militarism will not have cut
through the ranks of the Uvlng, depriv
ing the country of voices that It may
have taken generations to perfect."
