Seven Thousand to Hear Silvery
Tones in Warm House.
Do you think that Caruso could so
Carry you away with his silvery tones
that you would forget how cold your
lands and feet were? That is what
le has to do these days in New York.
The theaters are so chilly that one
really risks pneumonia to attend.
Does Enrico cut his price? Nay, $6
a seat, if you please. Mrs, J. V.
.Woodrough and her daughter, Miss
. Marjorie Becket, who are now in
Kew York, had this experience last
week. Seven thousand people will
hear John McCormack sing in our
own fair city tonight, but would they
go if the Auditorium was cold? That
is a question we cannot answer, for,
Sas yet, our public buildings have not
btcn stinted on coal.
Mrs. Woddrough writes her moth
er, Mrs. George C. Bonner, that all
the public buildings, stores and thea
ters in New York are uncomfortably
cold, r Mrs. Woodrough and Miss
Marjorie went east to visit. Mr. Guy
Becket. who is with the coast defense,
and they have found that the only
warm place in New York was a
cabin on the gunboat "Alice," on
which. Mr. Becket is stationed. We
might remark in passing that "Alice"
is certainly an appropriate name for
a gunboat. .
A trip to New York has always
sounded very fascinating, but these
coal shortage times staying at home
sounds more comfortable, at least.
A number of Omahans have left for
the cast in the past few days and we
are wondering what reports they will
bring back and how those who are
living there are faring. Dr. and Mrs.
Harold Gififord and Miss Anne Gif
ford have but recently left, Mr. and
Mrs. Hoxie Clark forsook our cozy
firesides and returned a day or two
ago. Miss Eugenia Patterson . and
