7 A'
Number of Paid Admissions to
the Auditorium Tuesday to
Be Largest, Ever.
The unprecedented demand for
seats for the John McCormack con
cert Tuesday evening has established
a new record for paid admissions to
the Auditorium.
St great is the demand that the lo
cal management with Mr. Franke,
manager of the Auditorium, have been
compelled to make extra seating ar
rangements to accommodate those
who have determined to hear Mr. Mc
Cormack. In order to accomplish this the
boxes which have always been located
on the sides back under the balcony
have been moved forward to the stage,
thereby providing space for over 500
additional seats and in accomplishing
this the regular seating arrangement
has not been affected in the least,
other than that scats have been placed
in the space in front of the stage
usually occupied by the orchestra.
i Seats on Stage.
Arrangements have also been made
for a -limited number of scats on the
stage. There will not be a seat in the
entire building but from which one
can sec and hear. The side strips on
the stage have been moved back so
that this will be possible.
The previous scat sale record of the
Auditorium was for the Ellis Opera
company in "Carmen," which was the
first number of the retailers' course,
when over 5,200 'witnessed the per
formance. That record is already ex
ceeded, to say nothing about extra
seats made possible by moving the
boxes and with those on the stage,
which are now on sale at the Audi
torium box omce.
The program is as follows:
