doors in the natural amphitheater at
Child's Point. This bird masque or
play will be given by prominent
Omaha men and women, members of

chased by Dr. Harold Giflocd for the

At Wilson! Summer Home.
"Sanctuary" is by Percy Mackaye
and was presented first three years'
ago at Concord, N. If., the slimmer
home of President Wilson. At that
time Miss Eleanor Wilson, now Mrs.
McAdoo, took the part of Ornis, the
In the- present presentation the
seven principal characters will be tak
en as follows:
Ornis, the bird spirit, Miss Joy Hig
gins. Quercus, a faun, Hugh E. Wallace.
Alwyn, a poet, Harry O. Palmer.
Shy, a naturalist. Hart Jenks.
Tacita, a dryad, Miss Pleasant Hol
yoke. Stark, a plume hunter, Jay Burns, jr.
The Cardinal Bird, A. W. Jefferis.
The birds will be represented by
about seventy girls and boys in cos
tume. Scarlet tangiers, yellow war
blers, blue birds, red-headed wood
peckers, all the feathered folk of the
forest will be seen in appropriate cos
tume. Finally comes the call:
Bird and man and faun and fairy.
Gather now to Sanctuary.
And from all directions come the
birds and the animals and men and
mingle in peace and friendliness. Then
comes the dance of the yellow war
The object of "sanctuary" of course,
is to promote more friendly feelings
among men for the birds, to cement
the entente cordialc, as they say in
Birds are not only beautiful, cheer
ful, tuneful, but they are useful. Robin
redbreast is not only an ornament to
the lawn and a joy to your eyes, but
he is a protection to the trees and
garden. He eats about three times
his own weight of bugs and worms'
every day. So, what if he does take a
berry or two for dessert!
Without the birds in this or any
other country man would starve to
death because the bugs and worms
would destroy all the growing crops.
So, you see, bird-protection should
appeal to hard-headed business per
sons as well as to the kind of heart
and the lovers of the beautiful.
The musical part of the pageant
promises to be ' as charming as the
spectacular. Four lyrics have been
composed especially for it and the
bird calls of the choruses are said to
be particularly delightful.
There will be incidental music all
through the performance and the pre
lude, "The Song of the Hermit
Thrush" will be sung by Mrs. Beulah
Patrons will have "the privilege of
buying ice cream and lemonade from
such classic, mythological creatures
as nymphs and dryads. These nymphs
and dryads will be society girls of

won't be mythological, but real.
Rehearsals will be held every day
