i New Year is coming in next

gyJ any appreciable change to
music:- The war lias already elim
inated many artists from the concert
field. Some have gone to war. some
have cancelled lours, owing to the
difficulty of travel. Some were not
big enough nor established enough
to continue under the stress of cir
cumstances and the poor patronage
given. One was too big an artist and
man to embarrass himself and the
country by atteni t!i g to fulfill his
numerous contracts, and some have
braved the submarine to go to their
Changes have already come over
lie face of the ordinary concert pro
gram. Where once songs by German
composers predominated they are no
tably absent, and Italian songs,
French, and strange as it may seem,
quite a large percentage ot American
and English songs or songs in the
English language are given.
Will the new year by any possible
chance produce an upheaval in musi
cal circles, such as has been produced
in many economic lines? W ill effi
ciency be the watchword here, as in
the business world? Will the musi
cal worker who is in a rut be jolted
out of his rut? Will the vocalists
who do not enunciate learn to enun
ciate, and will those who do not
sing anything but the top and bot
tom note of a run and leave the rest
i smear, learn to sing it clearly?
Will the violinists who play off key
.vake up and take a little more pains
,vith their intonation? Will vocalists
do the same? Will the pianists who
ound discover that even though
hey succeed in their probable intent
A breaking the piano, that that is
not music? Will a vast number who
1o not think might is right otherwise
realize that it isn't in music either?
Will the educated composers who
nave been struggling to say nothing
brilliantly in their music, find ideas
at last and use their harmonic
knowledge to say something brilliant
simply? Will the uneducated com
posers who are always trying to
mt one over on the public with a
dreadfully poor piece of ragtime, or
supposed-to-be-popular war song,
will they realize that they could be
nore useful in another capacity, and
ake to bricklaying or to something
vbere they have more knowledge and
echnique? ... ,
Will the teachers who insist that
everybody study the same way begin
to notice that pupils, and hands and
voices are different and that each
presents its own special problems.
Will pupils decide for efficiency s
-ake that as long as they are going
to do a thing anyway they might as
well learn to do it right?
Will the leaders of cantonment
camps give the soldiers music to sing
,. hich they can learn to like better
the better they know it, or will they
hist give them the kind that makes
hem alwavs want something differ-
Will any of these things come to
-.ass in the new year?
Eugen Ysave, who appears in con
cert at the Auditorium, Friday night,
January 4, considered to be the great
est living master of the violin, comes
from a family of musicians, from
Liege, Belgium. Ysaye received his
first musical training in Liege, then
going to Brussels, the home of the
modern Belgian-French school of
violin playing. Ysaye's career as
soloist has been one long chain ot
extraordinary successes. From the
first his playing attracted marked at
tention until the day came, when he
was heralded the foremost violinist of
his time. As an interpreter he is
unique, he respects the style of the
composer, yet his readings are so de
cidedly personal, that even well known
compositions seem new and full of
life when played by him. Here in
America it is not so well known that
Ysaye is also a conductor of distinc
tion. For many years he jias con
ducted the "Concerts Ysaye" in Brus
sels, where he directed his own sym
phony orchestra composed of the fore
most players of the city. He is also
a fine quartet player and the Ysaye
quartet, with Ysaye at the first violin,
seconded by Marchot. Van Hout and
Jacob, made itself widely known in
Europe, excelling especially in pro
grams of modern music. As a com
poser Ysaye has published some very
tine fascinating works for the violin.
His concert at the Auditorium will be
under municipal auspices.
Knitting at concerts is a matter
which affords more or less humorous
discussion these days. From a pa
triotic standpoint it is commendable
and in war-times we must learn to
endure many formerly unnecessary i
annoyances. One thing is cer
tain, it is les,s annoying to the knit
ters than to the non-knitters. The
knitters are usually so proficient, that
their fingers practically do it, and they
can listen attentively at the same time.
Some say that knitting keeps a great
many superficial listeners quiet and
contented, where formerly they moved
about, or coughed or whispered during
a program. One woman musician who
is seldom seen without her knitting,
says that she finds it aids in good
listening, that there is not so much
distraction when the eyes are on the
knitting as when they are raised. But

The Muical Courier, while com
mending the patriotism of it, cites the
arguments against it as that the play
of the needles distracts the attention
of the non-knitters; that performers
feci the lack of complete concentra
tion on the part of the auditors: that
the rhythm of the knitting movement
often interfers with rhythm of
the music; that metal needles make
a clicking and disturbing noise; that
the reflection of light from steel nee
dles used in an illuminated hall fre
quently strikes the eyes of the artists
on the stage; that the knitting is a
mark cf disrespect for the performers,
and shows a lack of consideration- for
those in the audience who object to
the practice and have a right to un
disturbed enjoyment of the music."
Henry T. Finck, in the New York
Saturday Evening Post says: "If the
knitting bothers you, there is a simple
effective and inexpensive remedy. It
consists in shutting your eyes." The
Musical Courier adds that this solves
the problem for the audience but not
the concert givers." But can't concert
givers shut their eyes too? Elman
often does during a number, and we
have seen other violinists and even
singers close their eyes for several
moments for some reason or other
during the singing of a song. If the
knitting is quiet, and the needles do
not reflect light, a little more concen
tration upon the part of others in lis
tening and those giving the program
would probabh help them to for
get the existence of those who do
knit. Or let everybody knit in self
defense. In this same connection,
Lucy Gates, a well known singer, says
that knitting is an indespcnsable aid
to a concert singer. While she prob
ably docs not knit while giving a con
cert she knits while she practices her
program for one. She has made sev
en sweaters and is quoted as follows
by the Musical Leader:
Anil, mind you, those seven sumptuous
sweaters mean more than seven warm
Sammies to me. I've discovered that if I
ran go through a program without stop
ping even momentarily in my knitting,
that I know that program thoroughly,
completely. If I have to stop, I know that
I do not know it, and I keep on until I
no longer give the text after this fashion:

Mrs. Edward MacDowell is coming again.
She will appear at the Young Women's
Christian association auditorium, Saturday
evening, February 2. Those who had the
privilege of hearing Mrs. MacDowell when
he was here two years ago will welcome the
news of her return joyously. Mrs. Mac
Dowel! is the widow of America's greatest
composer, and through her efforts the artist
colony at Peterborough, N. H., was estab
lished. Since the beginning of the war the
provision has been made to use this colony
as a home for convalescent American sol
diers, particularly those who were formerly
in artistic lines. Her coming will not only
be a treat from the standpoint of interest
and information, but will oiler the oppor
tunity for interested musicians to become
familiar with a larger repertory of Mac
Dowell compositions. The vogue for Amer
ican music at present should cause many
a concert giver to look with interest into
the works of this greatest American. Her
coming will also afford an opportunity for
any music lovers who are delicate about
going to concerts given by foreign artists
to indulge their musical taste and at the
same time to be patriotic.
The officers and directors of the Omaha
MacDowell club will hold a meefing this
afternoon at 4 :30 o'clock, at the home of
the president. Mr. A. M. Borglum, at which
further arrangements will be made for the

is a fine idea, and could be followed with
good effect by other teachers.

John McCormack, who will appear
here in recital at the Auditorium Fri
day evening, January 18, has become
the phenomenon of the present day
in his hold on the people, and the
number of theories advanced to ac

Successes of this kind are not man
ufactured by artificial means; they
are the result of natural growth. The
people found by the evidence of their
own senses that John McCormack
gave something which they could un
derstand and appreciate, and s.nce the
public knows this about an individual
the matter is settled.
No better evidence of this wonder
ful magnetism and drawing powers
than the great audience that heard
him in the Auditorium last January
when he sang to more than 6,600 per
sons, the largest number of paid ad
missions recorded at the Auditorium.

BIG Folks and Little Folks: A
Happy New Year to you all.
We have spent many happy months
together I say together advisedly
because I reallv feel that we have en
joyed a close friendship through the
'Tolly Column." Let us hope that
the New Yer may bring us all the
good of the year just closed and a
solving of many of its difficulties.
One of the problems we have dis
cussed many, many times through the
year is the old, and very important
one of conservation of our resources.
We must conserve I The solution is
wise and careful buying of the best
materials and most appropriate styles
for different occasions. There is no
true saving in doing without neces
saries. Yet there snould be careful
planning before purchasing. Be sure
that the suitable garment is obtained.
It never pays to buy for the moment
or the present crying need. Let us
help you conserve. We've taken
great pleasure during the year in full
filling orders sent in, answering let
ters personally, studying types of
people, circumstances conditions and
needs. This has been perhaps a little
more than a shopping service calls
for, yet we feel that we have helped
many people CONSERVE.
MY dear! You really should make
a new knitting bag. The Jap
anese challis at the Eldridge Shop
are marvelously artistic.
ALL home lovers appreciate fine
linens. I'm sure you'll all be
glad to hear what I heard one of the
men in Thompson Beldcn & Com
pany's linen department say the
other day, "in spite of present condi
tions, our stock of linens is the most
complete in this section of the coun
try. On account of conditions, the
prices at which they will be offered
during the January sale will be of a
character that can scarcely be over
estimated in importance."
THE Alia Shop takes this oppor
tunity to thank its many
friends for their generous patronage
during the past year and to extend
wishes for a very Happy New Year.

tical. The Eldridge Importing com

WHAT a joy it is to forget winter
for a while in looking at new
spring blousesl Lamond's Shop is
showing exquisitely wrought blouses
in the new spring tints. The designs
and lines of these new blouses are
very different and decidedly fasci
nating. One tei rose tinted blouse is
particularly adorable. Its rose color
is carried out in insets of a deeper,
richer tone, which is emphasized in
the embroidery of wild roses. Sur
prising indeed arc the steel beads
which glitter here and there among
the silk threads. Another blouse,
wonderfully dainty, is a flesh colored
model, with trim of French blue
georgette and tiny blue crystal beads
which seem to hang from the low cut
"V" of the neck, The blouses are so
wonderfully reasonable, too, ranging
in price from $6.50 to $10.50. You
can t afford to miss them.
NEW YEAR'S DAY is essentially
a time for sending flowers.
Bath the Florist will take pleasure
in suggesting combinations of cut
flowers to take with you when you
go out to New Year's dinner.
BEFORE going home, I hope all
out-of-town visitors will tnke
time to visit the Alia Gift Shop, at

well worth while.

and were buying for them months
and months ago. at prices much
lower than they would pay for them

ONE of the "thoughtful" presents
I received for Christmas was a
Dickens' Calendar. In turning over
the leaves I find an expression which
is surely quite worthy to pass along
to you: "There must have been some
few occurrences in the past year to
which we can look back with a smile
of cheerful recollection, if not with a
feeling of 'ieartfelt thankfulness. And
we are bound by every rule of justice
and equity to give the New Year
credit for being a good one, until lie
proves himself unworthy the confi
dence we repose in him.'
Happy New Year, Everyone!
Now the Old Year's almost done,
Whether eighty-two or twenty,
Hope you'll have success a-plentjr.

That is past and over.
Forge head the thing that is.

Do not mind the brambles, lass;
Take a brave strike over
Just beyond are waving fields,
Full of nodding clover;
Full of nodding clover.
You can walk among the briars,
All the wide world over;
Or with brave and steadfast tread
You can find sweet clorer.
You can find sweet clover. ''"ftj.,-
