The second piano recital by
Madame Melville Liszniewska took
place last evening at Brownell Hall
for the benefit of the building fund of
that institution. Madame Liszniewska
is the official examiner of the students
at Brownell Hall, who are availing
themselves of the credit system in
practice at the hall. Her recital of
last evening confirmed anew the im
pression she made last season. She
was for many years one of the leading
assistants to Leschetiszkey in Vienna,
and her playing is marked by au
thority, technical freedom, and. dis
tinct interpretative individuality.
She is the possessor of tremendous
piwer, and unlimited endurance and
these stood her in good stead in the
difficult and brilliant program which
she presented. Mme. Liszniewska
while making up an orthodox pro
gram, also succeeded in avoiding the
more hackneyed numbers, and many
of those selected were of the lesser
known compositions of the great com
posers. She opened with the Sonata
Op. Ill by Beethoven, which is sel

reading, with some especially inter
esting tonal effects in the beautiful

the charming Nocturne in E major

zniewski repeated by request the ex

' Exhibit Here in April
Undoubtedly the largest art collec

the Franco-Belgian art exhibit, which
the Omaha Society of Fine Arts is
bringing to Omaha the middle of
April. Both ball rooms of the Fon

some of the paintings will have to be
hung on the mezzanine floor.
The collection is distinctly modern,

London, March 4. The German

Berlin dispatch received by the Ex

of Amsterdam. It is generally sup

Washington, March 4. German
Foreign Minister Zimmermann's frank
admission that Germany did seek to
ally Japan and Mexico with it to war
against the United States caused no
surprise to American officials, al
though it may be said they did not
expect so full and free an acknowl
edgement of the exposure.
Some officials had thought there
might be an attempt to discredit the
authenticity of the revelations by of
fering an explanation of a different
character. American officials hsve
never had the least doubt of the au

Whether it was presented to Gen
eral Carranza or nQt, or the fact that
it is believed not to have been com
municated to Japan, do not, in the
opinion of American officials, alter
the established fact that Germany,
while seeking the offices of the United
States to make peace and while pro
testing its innocence in any intention
to violate American lives, wts at the
same moment preparing unrestricted
submarine warfare and was intrigu
ing to attack the United States with
The Pan-American "Plot."
Mr. Zimmermann's reference to an
alleged "plot" by the United States to
unite pan-America against Germany
was regarded with mingled ieeling of
incomprehension and aniusement. The
pan-American Union, the Argentine
embassy and the State department
can find record of no such newspaper
publication as Zimmermann contends
revealed the "plot" in Buenos Aires.
The only event, which officials can
recall which is susceptible of being
distorted to such a charge as Zim
mermann makes was discussion early
in Secretary Bryan's term of office of
a plan to surround the Pan-Americas
with a neutral zone in which there
were to be no naval operations. Noth

Zimmermann's statement was read
in the senate today and some sena
tors, who were at first inclined to
think his published instructions to

Mexico was a forgery, had the state
