'Get Acquainted Day'
Planned at Central
High School Shortly
The "Get Acquainted Day1 idea has
taken root at Central High. At a
meeting oMhe senior and student
councils yesterday it was decided to
start the get acquainted program the
week following vacation. The carry
ing out of the plan is entirely in the
hands of a guiding committee which
will be appointed by the council. This
committee will be about the halls be
fore and after class hours, will pass'
out cards to the students and will
introduce pupils to each other.
It is also the aim of Principal Mas
ters, who has entered heartily into the
plan, to have the members of the fac
jlty become better acquainted with
each other and with the pupils.
Charles Morearty, who is credited as
being the originator of the get ac
quainted idea, will have charge of the
distribution of the cards. Robert
Buckingham has been appointed
chairman of the advertisement com
mittee for the campaign.
The council also has a plan in mind
awarding prizes to a freshman boy
and girl who can point out the largest
number of acquaintances and give
' their correct names.

Brinton Likely to Talk
To the Friends of Art
Efforts are being made by John
Lee Webster, president of the Friends
of Art association, to have Christian
Erinton, critic, authority on art and
writer, deliver the principal address
at the annual dinner of the associa
tion at the Hotel Fontenelle the eve
ning of April 11. .
While no definite arrangements
have been made, Mr. 1 Webster be
lieves that the chances of Mr. Brinton
coming to Omaha for the annual din
ner of (he Friends of Art association
are good. - ' -
An unquestioned authority on any
thing pertaining to art, Mr. Brinton
has achieved an international reputa
tion as a critic and writer on art sub
jects. He has written several books
on art, including one on the exhibits
at the Panama exposition, and is a
frequent contributor to the better
class magazines.
It is now assured that in the neigh
borhood of $50,000 worth of famous
paintings will be. exhibited the night
of the annual meeting and dinner.
The association plans to purchase a
couple of the works to be added to
the already extensive collection owned
by the Friends of Art association.
Several paintings from the brushes
of world-famous artists have been ar
ranged for by Mr. Webster. One,
"The Roof Garden," by Childe Has
sam, is valued at $10,000. Mr. Web
ster received a photograph of the
painting yesterday, with assurance
that the big canvas itself will be here
by the evening of the dinner.

munitions for the entente allies, testi

tomed to doing as they are told, not
to asking questions."
Hindenbura Would Invade -France
Through Crushed Italy
Rome, March 29. (Via Paris.)
The predicted great offensive against
Italy by the Central powers con
tinues to be the chief topic of dis
cussion in military and political cir
cles. Field Marshal von Hindenburg
is credited with aiming at an invasion
of France across a'prostrate Italy.
Miura as Iris and Teyte as
Mimi Ravish Local Ears
With Sweet Music.
An operatic fable, or rather fantasy,
of Japanese characters woven into in
teresting Italian music and treated in
Italian manner, was what Mascagni's
"Iris" proved to be, when presented
in Omaha for the first time yesterday
afternoon, in the rarely artistic man
ner of the Boston National Grand
Opera company at its second per
formance at the Boyd theater. The
soft tints of its lighting, its beautiful
and appropriate scenic properties and
the gorgeous Japanese costumes, es
pecially those worn by the wonderful
little star, Tamaki Miura, all com
bined to heighten -and enhance the
illusion of the music of both orches
tra and voices. In this opera Mas
cagni has used more delicacy and
more subtle means of interpreting in
the music and but few of the strong
colors found in his "Cavalleria Rusti
cana" were perceptible, although the
music was dramatic and vivid when
need be.
Symbolic Rather Than Real.
The plot, as we have come to ex
pect from grand opera, is sordid and
unmoral, but such is the character of
the story, and the music that one feels
it is symbolic, rather than real, more
of a play than a delineation of life.
This may be partly the result of the
difference in philosophy of the orien
tal from our own.
The music suffers from contrast
with the wealth of tonal beauty of the
two Puccini operas also presented by
this company, but it .is of high musical
standard. The opening daybreak and
sunrise brought forth some marvelous
lighting and about the most beautiful
music of the whole opera, and these
same themes furnished a later devel
opment and return in the third act.
The "Hymn to the Sun," a broad and
sonorous chorus off stage at the open
ing was highly effective and the whole
episode from darkness of night
rises to a majestic and impressive cli
max, at the coming of the full day.
Music Suggests Japan.
The music for the "Puppet Show"
of the first act, by which Kyoto en
snares the unsuspecting Iris, brought
many .suggestions of Japanese native
music and was well and carefully
worked out, and most effectively pre
sented. Act II brought other sugges
tions of Japanese music, music that
was admirably adapted to the scene,
and several dramatic moments, as well
as some of lighter vein when Kyoto
was present.
The company maintained the high
standards in this opera which have
been the outstanding features of all
their productions. Suffice it to say
that "Iris" was produced with true
magnificence, both musically and
scenically, and Conductor Moranzini
and all concerned deserve great ap
probation for their artistic and intel
ligent results. The audience was not
large, but it was a genuinely and dis
criminatcly enthusiastic one.
Miura's Voice Improves.
Madame Miura as Iris repeated the
triumph she made last year as
Madame Butterfly, although unfor
tunately the score does not afford her
the breadth of opportunity of the
other opera. Her voice is lovely and
sweet, and has a certain childish note
in it at times which is most suitable
for the part. She sings even more
beautifully than last year, and made
the most of what fell to her with her
own individual charm. She is an
irresistible, actress, and histrionically
infused the greatest interest into the
character. Tovia Kittay as Osaka dis
played a well trained tenor of some
what metallic quality, but in no way
displeasing, and he furnished rich
and blase young man who was at all
times satisfactory. The Kyoto of
Georgio Puliti, and the blind father
of Virgilio Lazzari added other ex
cellent singers and widely different
characters to the opera, and Elvira
Leveroni and Romeo Boscacci made
the most of minor parts.
The chorus of "mousme," or work
ing women, in Act 1, of the peddlers
at the close of the same act, and the
opening and closing hymns to the
Sun proved again the thorough train
ing and ensemble of this company,
and the orchestra sang through the
entire Opera as only an artistic body
of trained musicians can.
"La Boheme" Closes Engagement.
"La Boheme," last evening, closed
the engagement of the company in
Omaha, and it is a gratification, in
face of the small audiences present, to
realize how much those who did not
avail themselves of the opportunity
of hearing the operas presented
missed. This well loved opera by
Puccini grows all the more lovely in

its repetitions, and either we have
forgotten how wonderfully the com
pany presented it last year, or in the
more intimate spaces of the Boyd
theater, it made a more personal im
pression, tne tact remains mat me
presentation of last evening surpassed
any other we have ever heard of this
masterpiece. There was a sprightli
ness and freedom about the work of
the four friends together, a life and
freedom about the ensemble scenes,
and opportunities which offered the
chorus a chance to far surpass their
very excellent work in the other two
The music of this opera is so in
spiredly beautiful, so full of melodies
that charm and harmonies that thrill,
of colors that delight, and of life and
brilliancy, as well as the underlying
note of tragedy, that it never fails to
reach the listeners Under the baton
of Fulgenzio Guerrieri this music
shone to its fullest luster last eve
ning, the orchestra deserving even
additional mention for its masterful
laving: of it.
Miss Maggie Teyte made a Mimi
who not only looked but acted the
part, and who fairly ravished by the
beauty of her voice, she was Ire
quentl interrupted with applause, in
the first act, after her solo and the
duet with Rndolph, in Act III, when
she goes away and in the affecting
death scene at the close, where her
exquisite quality of voice shone to its
fullest advantage.
Miss Riegelmann as Musetta.
The Musetta of Mabel Riegelmann
was of the vivacious and lively type
one expects this young lady to be,
and she is well equipped with vocal
and dramtic riches which made her
wholly delightful in the part. While
we were sorry that owing to an in-
aisposuion luccarao jnarun uia not
sing the part of Rudolpho, we were
glad to hear Romeo Boscacci in the
part, who if we are not mistaken was
the Rudolpho of last year. His is a
tenor of the loveliest velvety quality,
and the beautiful solo in Act I won
him prolonged applause in appre
ciation. Rudolpho in his hands was
a satisfaction from all standpoints.
Graham Marr excelled his Marcel
of last year, and much of the humor
ot tne opera was due to his intelli
gence and ability. Jose Mardones,
who made such a tremendous im
pression last year, was again Colline,
at all times a vocal delight and bass
of exceptional qualities, whose song
to the coat in Act IV was a vocal and
dramatic triumph. Georgio Puliti as
Schaunard and Paolo Ananian, in
two minor roles, were worthy of be
ing in such excellent company.
The death scene as given by the
Boston National Grand Opera last
evening is an achievement of art and
tragedy, a most magnificent achieve
ment of consummate musical and
theatrical attainment, and was heart
rending in its pathos and tragedy.
It is hoped that we may many more
times have the pleasure of hearing
this company, and that at future
visits they will receive the patronage
and support that the artistic tatue of
their work deserves. The prices were
not high when one considers the im
mense equipment, and large and
renowned casts they bring.

Says Omaha Could
Double Business by
Reaching Into West
"Omaha could double its business
by reaching into the great west," de
clared Joseph M. Carey, vice presi
dent of the new Federal Farm Loan
bank and former governor of Wyo
ming, speaking to members of the
Rotary club at noon.
He referred to the vast oil industry
in his state and expressed the belief
that extensive oil fields are as yet un
tapped in western Nebraska.
"We ask co-operation of the busi
ness men of Omaha in helping to
make this farm loan bank a success,"
said M. L, Corey, registrar.
D. P. Hogan, president of the bank,
stated that it is the aim of himself
and associates to standardize the farm
mortgage. He explained that the
farm is the best security today; that
other industries may rise and fall, bin
farming goes on forever. Frank G
Odell spoke briefly.
Will Cressy of the Orpheum theater
offered a witty talk which aroused
the risibilities of all. He is a mem
ber of the Rotary club of Memphis.

Mothers, you'll never know what you
are missing until you make up this in
expensive, quick-acting cough syrup and
try it. Children love its pleasant taste
and nothing else will loosen a cough or
chest cold and heal the inflamed or
swollen throat membranes with such
ease and promptness. It's equally as
good for grown-ups as for children.
This splendid cough syrup is made by
pouring 2 Mi ounces of Fiuex (50 cents
worth), into a pint bottle and filling the
bottle with plain granulated sugar
syrup. This gives you a full pint a
family supply of much bettor cough
remedy than you could buy ready-made
for $2.50 a clear saving of $2.
Tha moment it touches the inflamed,
cold-congested membranes that line the
throat and air passages, the healing be
gins, the phlegm loosens, soreness
loaves, cough spasms lessen and soon
disappear altogether, thus ending a
sough quicker than you ever thought
possible. Hoarseness and ordinary
couzhs are conquered by it In 24 hours
or less. Excellent for bronchitis, whoop
ing cough, spasmodic croup, bronchial
asthma or winter coughs.
Fines is a highly concentrated com
pound of genuine Norway pino extract,
combined with guaiacol and is famous
the world over for its quick healing
effect on the membranes.
Beware of substitutes. Ask your
druggist for ounces of Pinei" with
directions and don't accept anything
else. Guaranteed to give absolute satis
faction or money refunded. The Fines
