From Rouen, France, where Amer
ican, base hospital No. 21 is located,
comes i letter to Mr. and Mrs. Wil
liam F. Baxter, from their cousin,
Lieutenant Arthur W. Proetz, St.
Louis, who numbers many Omahans
among his friends. Young: Proetz went
abroad in May. He is 3 graduate of
Washington university and has writ
ten two light operas in collaboration
with Hugh Ferris.
Lieutenant Proetz is using his tal
ent, too, in petting up entertainments
for the soldiers and in his letters to
his family in St. Louis has asked them
to send on his scores and music,
-since any one able to entertain is en
roled to do his share.
The Baxters' letter is an acknowl
edgement of a box of goodies sent
frcm here. It follows:
Package From Home a Joy.
"The packaee from home is one of
the greatest institutions in the army.
Really you have no idea what joy a
box of candy can spread over here.
You may think you have, but it's even
more than you think. A shout went
up when the can of coffee appeared.
Ration coffee is nothing to boast of.
The only reason why no shout went
up for the teeth was that everybody's
teeth were deep in the candy, for
ration tea is, if anything, worse than
the coffee. But it's all in the game an
we don't mind.
"Everything over here is going ex
ceptionlly well, for it didn't take long
to get into the routine here. What
pleases us most is that I'm getting
most of the ear, ncse and throat
work in this immediate district,
which, of course, is what I expect to
do 'apres la guerre.' I'm not permit
ted to tell you how many patients I'm
looking after. This is the coldest, wet
test summer resort I have ever visited.
We sleep under two and three
blankets always, and it rains perhaps
a third of the time.
Meets All Kinds of People.
"We're constantly .meeting all kinds
of people colonels with Indian stories
right out of Kipling-Philippine veter
ans; nobility and quite the reverse;
Tommies. Jacks, Hindoos, Russians,
Belgians, Siklis and Gurkas opera

Ours is a Cambridge professor of

"The mails are irregular and often
parcels arrive ahead of letters of the
same date. I was surprised to sec
your parcel come through without
any soht of a customs ticket. Of
course, we pay no duty, but there is
usually a ticket attached, neverthe
less. It was fortunate for rne that
you parcel was put up in tin, etc., for
other packages in the same mail were
badly crushed. I have had no mail
from home for almost three weeks,
but no doubt it will come in a bunch
one of these days.
"Of course detailed Information is
barred and our kodaks are temporar
ily locked up, but I can say that we
are as happy as people upon this kind
of errand can be. I wouldn't have
stayed home for anything. Write
when you can, letters help a lot."
Farewell Reception to

Mrs. Clark, wife of the pastor of
the First Congregational church, is a
newcomer to Omaha and this is the
first time she has appeared in recital
here. She possesses a lovely contral
to voice of both range and resonance.
Her low tones, especially are full of
depth and richness. She presented a
program which contained a fair share
of old, favorites as well as several nov
elties. Among the latter and one of
the most attractive songs on the
program was an old fourteenth cen
tury gem, which was interpolated be
fore a group Of lullabies. Two Franz
songs at the beginning of the program
and "The Dove," by Landon Ronald,
contained much good tone work, and
were especially remembered by the
Among the favorites presented
were "His Lullaby," by Carrie Jacobs
Bond, sung with rhythmical abandon,
and Nevin's "Rosary." A patriotic
note was struck in the last group,
which cotnained the "Marseillaise"
and "The Star-Spangled Banner,"

Mrs. Clark was received with cor
diality and responded to applause and
flowers with several encores. Mme.
Borglum accompanied in her cus

was no admission fee charged for the
recital, but a voluntary offering was
contributed, which, owing to the large
audience present and the worthiness
of the benefit, undoubtedly brought a
neat sum to the treasury of each or

Miss Ursula Dietrich, concert pianist, has been appearing
with marked success in a number of cities throughout the
United States, including New York, Chicago, Cincinnati,
Detroit, Toledo, Louisville, Denver, Salt Lake City, San Fran
cisco, Los Angeles, etc., before the leading clubs and organiza
tions of these cities.
Miss Dietrich appears in connection with the Artapollo,
and in addition to displaying her own artistry and charming
personality, shows the wonderful possibility of this latest im
provement for the reproduction of piano music. Alternating
with the Artapollo, Miss Dietrich has conclusively demon
strated that it is impossible to distinguish between the hand
playing of a finished artist and the Artapollo 's reproduction.
Playing "duets with herself," this dainty artiste is ap
pearing in the first numbers ever written for two pianos
, played by one artist, for the Artapollo 's reproduction of Miss
Dietrich's playing is just as much "her own" as the actual
hand playing on the second instrument.
Miss Dietrich will give daily recitals from 2 to 5 daily at
our warerooms where a complete line cf Apcllos and Artapoilc3
are on dlsplaly.
Publio cordially invited.
