Public vacation schools will be held
at Farnam, Bancroft, Saratoga, South
High and Long schools. Entrants will
be received only upon written rec
ommendations of principals and
teachers and will embrace fourth to
eighth grades, inclusive.
When the subject was discussed
Friday by the teachers' committee of
the Board of Education the sunerin
tendent reported that 1,347 were eli
gible to enter, these children hav
ing failed to make their grades dur
ing this semester. The scarlet fever
situation has been the most serious
factor in this situation. These vaca
tion schools will be restricted to
those who have been backward and
need special help. .
Principals have reported the fol
lowing children who are recommend
ed for the vacation schools: Fourth
grade, 315; fifth grade, 331;, sixth
grade, 274; seventh grade, 264; eighth
Announcement of the opening of
these schools will be made soon.

By HENRIETTA M. REES.,
HICAGO has fully endorsed
Omaha's estimate of the
artistic ability of the
Kellys, and of the rare
quality of their "Sham
rock" program. This is
evidenced by the following from the
Musical Leader of the 11th under the
caption of "A New and Fascinating
"Those who delve into folklore
would have reveled in the recital
given by those clever singing and ar
tistic entertainers, Mr. and Mrs.
Thomas J. Kelly of Omaha, who were
heard by a large audience at the I.a
Salle hotel on Saturday afternoon.
Here was something new in the way
of program making and recital giving,
something to grip attention and re
tain interest. Urn miite indicative of
its worth was the title,- 'Shamrocks,'
for this implies just a program that
anyone might be able to give, but. as
a matter of fact, it is ideally suited to
Mr. and Mrs. Kelly, and probably to
them alone. Artists in the truest sense
of the word, they sing delightfully,,
with the finest kind of musicianship,
and have that real sense of pathos and
humor which is born and never
taught. They ran lake joy and glad
ness to an audience, and so, evidently,
thought the Irish Fellowship club,
wdio found the program all too short,
1 lie voices of the artists blend admir
ably, they understand to perfection
the art of tonal coloring and musi-
cianly phrasing to such a degree that
the simplest folksong is a gem of ar
tistic workmanship. With a brief sen
tence or two of explanation, and with
the happiest gift for interesting an
audience from the onset, Mr. Kelly
introduced Ins wife and himself in
most felicitous style to a miscellane
ous audience, who, usually the most
difficult to please, expressed delight
at every number offered. Mr. and
Mrs. Kelly should have marked suc
cess in the recitals in and around Chi
cago, to which city they have recently
In connection with the coming visit
to Omaha of the Swedish Singing
Union of America, interest in which is
growing, John Helgren gives an ac
count of the visit to Paris in 1867 of
a group rf students from the Univer
sity of Uppsala. Mr. Helgren says:
"In Sweden, the land of the Mid
night Sun, male chorus singing, has
for generations bark been practiced
extensively. In 1867 a chorus com
posed of just an even 100 students
from the University of Uppsala par
ticipated in an international singing
contest held in Paris during the ex
position. This Swedish chorus, be
ing one of the smallest in member
ship in the contest, was not consid
ered of much consequence by other
participants for the reason that very
little was known of them outside
their own country previous to this
occasion. They were unfortunate
also that theirs was one of the last
numbers on an exceedingly long pro
gram (they did not appear until mid
night), and that the judges who, by
the way, included some of the fore
most composers, musicians and cri
tics of their day as well as the im
mense audience, had listened to ev
ery number and were by this time
getting weary and only wishing for
the contest to come to an end.
"The rraud prize, which was to be
awarded to the champion chorus, had
already been conceded in the minds
of the judges, singers and listeners
alike, to the Belgian chorus, Les

enfants de Belgiqur,' which had
shown such superiority over the
other choruses appearing. The ova
tion the Belgians received after their
number had clearly shown that there
was no chance for any of the previ
ous choruses receiving the award and
hardly possible for any of the re
maining ones to maice the same im
pression. "The audience had had enough.
Several were getting ready to leave
when -the Swedish students lined up
on the platform. Their appearance,
however, attracted snme attention
and everybody lingered a while to
see if their efforts would be worth
listening to, The director, Mr. Arpi,
being a man of short stature, in or
der to be seen by everyone of his
singers climbed up on a chair in front
of the chorus. He raised his baton
and birth rolled the mightiest volume
of tone a from an immense organ,
Wennerbergs' 'Hear Us. Svea." From
the first sound the aulienre appeared
spellbound, and the singers, feeling
that tbey had made an impression,
gained courage and sang as they
never bad sung before. The chair
on which the director stood broke
down and he scrambled on the floor,
the singers, however, never faltered,
not the slightest break in the singing
being detected, and Mr. Arpi was
soon on his feet again, taking up his
directing as if nothing had happened.
"The enthusiasm on the part of the
audience after the nuujiher was fin
ished knew no bounds. Men cheered,
women waved their handkerchiefs,
hats, and fans flew up in the air.
Members of the Belgian chorus, for
getting xtheir defeat, rushed on the
platform and embraced the Swedes,
even the judges came up and publicly
congratulated the victorious singers
and their director.
"During their stay in Paris the
Swedish singers were greeted as
conquering heroes wherever they ap
peared. Being easily recognised on
the streets, wearing the white stu
dent caps similar to those now worn
by the American Union Swedish
singers, flowers were thrown on
them, women even embracing them

"This sanie chorus, the one from
l'ppala university, has time and
again repeated its triumph of '67
and still remains the foremost of
Swedish male choruses. This is quite
a distinction, when it is considered
that no town in Sweden, however
small, is without its male chorus, and
in the larger cities the competition
between the numerous male choruses
is very keen. Sweden has justly been
termed a 'singing nation' and it is
only a natural consequence that the
cherished practice of male chorus
singing should be kept up by the sons
of such a nation, even after they have
emigrated and wherever they have
congregated in any large numbers in
this country, one is sure to find
among them a male chorus or quar
tet of more or less prominence.
"On June 1 and 20 next Omahans
will have an opportunity to judge
for themselves how the Swedes can
sing A mass male chorus of fiver
500 voiies will sing this same nihnher
sung in I'aris in 1867. besides many
others of equal value, a chance never
before offered Omaha and which
may never come again."
