Drama Should Be Read
More Closely, Says Clark
"You can't put over any cheap stuff
in music in Omaha any more. A taste
for the best music has been created
through study. That time has not yet
come for drama," Prof. S. H. Clark
of the University of Chicago told the
Drama league members Saturday af
ternoon. "If audiences understood
plays and players, a great many ac
tor? would have to go out and earn a
living. Not until drama is read as
carefully as a musician reads notes,
will the day of fourth-rate plays and
players be over," he said. Prof.
Clark's talk was preliminary to- a
reading and interpretation of Zang
will's "The Melting Pot."

among whose ranks was a famous
delegation from Council Bluffs head
ed by George Hughes, expert yarn
spinner, and a number of equally
clever seconds, including William
Boyer and ex-Mayor M. F. Rohrer.

University of Omaha
Is Given an Idea of
The Lower Regions
Saturday evening, Redick hall, Uni
versity of Omaha, was converted into
a lower region. The sophomores
gave a Hallowe'en party for the
school and the affair was an elaborate
one, the last school party that will
be given in old Redick hall, the uni
versity's first school building.
At the cellar door was Mark Lowe,
who conducted the visitors across a
bundle of sticks, the River Styx, and
thence through the spooky compart
ments. Then the ghostly guide lead
the party over the scenic route. The
Flunkers' room came first, where
Frank Crampert studied with head
wrapped. Next came the Quitters'
room, where Finkenstein pushed a
huge boulder up a hill with his nose.
The Fussers' room was the last com
partment and there were found four

at Satan, chained, and his assistants,

well. An appropriate program followed.
The most spooky event was staged
while the refreshments were being
served. A group of ghosts came in
unexpectedly and danced. Later ap
peared a departed soul, once a univer
sity student, and now an inmate of
Hades, to tell a tale of woe to the
merrymakers. He came in so quietly
and recited such a terrifying poem
that not a breath was heard until he
had vanished. Apples, doughnuts,
coffee, and pop corn were served.

Prohibition Destroys Property

Douglas County Property Owners' and Taxpayers' League,
335 Rose Building, Omaha, Neb.,
Mr. M. J. Greevy, Secy. .
Dear Sir: I am taking the liberty to write you in regard to an article
published in one of our newspapers in Nashville, regarding the property
values and the prohibition question here. ,
Being a taxpayer and in business in Nashville, 1 feel that I am competent
to give you some facts about the conditions here.
It is an indisputable fact that prohibition has hurt Nashville. It has
caused many business and residence houses to be vacated, which still have
"For Rent" signs on them. It has caused a great number of people to leave
Nashville, and caused merchants from near points that should buy their
goods in Nashville to go elsewhere, and it is always a wet city that they go
to, such as Louisville, Cincinnati or St. Louis. '
I have had the opportunity to find out on several occasions why these
merchants do not come here and their answer is that they like to go to wet ,
towns to trade, because the town is alive.
We have had in Nashville lots of trouble concerning our municipal and
county governments, but that did not deprive us of the great revenue lost by
prohibition, which caused property to depreciate in value and loss of business.
. Feeling that the lost revenue has caused taxes to be higher to meet the
needed deficit, I among others made complaint, but the taxes were higher
just the same.
Nashville being my native city I think a great deal of it and all my in
terests being here, of course, I want to see it prosper, but we cannot develop
as we should, hampered with prohibition and fanaticism, and your city and
state will have to face the same conditions that exist here and that we are
now undergoing if statewide prohibition should be adopted.
Our police records show an increase from one hundred to three hundred
per cent per month in arrests since prohibition laws were enacted.
I sincerely hope the voters there will consider seriously before casting
their vote. ' :
Nashville is a metropolitan jobbing city similar to Omaha.
Prohibition would bring the same results to Omaha as it has
brought to Nashville.
A vast amount of trade now coming to Omaha would go to
our commercial rivals in St. Joseph and Kansas City.
In addition, prohibition would bring a decrease in property
values and a heavy increase in taxes and in crime.
Think it over,
Douglas County Property Owners' and Taxpayers' League, v
M. J. GREEVY, Secretary.
