THE Tuesday Musical club pre

mezzo soprano, and Mr.
Arthur Hackett, tenor, in joint re
cital at the Brandeis theater last
evening, before a brilliant gather
ing of Omaha music lovers who
seemed quite eager for musical en
joyment after the long fast from the
last of last season. The music they
heard seemed to greatly satisfy

for the work of both singers, which
frequently culminated in encores,
demortstrated the favor accorded
t Mme. Claussen has frequently
been heard in Omaha in the past,
and has built up for herself a strong
circle of admirers for both her
'voice and the artistic work which
she has done. It is but justice to
Mine. Claussen, however, to say hat
although she sang many numbers
beautifully, she was not up to her
best in all. of her songs last even
ing. Many will never forget the
beautiful work she did several years
ago in the Auditorium, and it is
hard to be satisfied with anything
less at any time from the same per
son. Mme. Claussen is an artist in
the selection of her songs, and her
groups were well contrasted and
suitable. She is dramatic, and is
especially at home in the brilliant
numbers. We could not ask,
though, for nothing more charming

lullaby which she gang as an en
core following the aria from Saint
Saens, and "When I Bring You
Colored Toys" by Carpenter, in the
last group was most poetically in
terpreted. Among the novelties she
presented were several Norwegian
and Swedish songs, delightful in
type and with Mme. Claussen's
voice and skill. "O Jenta O Ja," a
merry Swedish folk song, was re
peated. Perhaps the most dramatic
and brilliant number she presented
was "Inter Nos" by MacFayden,
which is soul stir ing with the tre
mendous climax at the close.
Arthur Hackett was a most agree
able surprise to the majority of the
listeners, although he sang in Oma
ha a few years ago, with the St.
Louis orchestra, I believe. His
voice is a tenor of rich and beautiful
quality, and he uses it with a finish
and skill which is a conslstant de
light.1 His enunciation, tocf, is per
haps as satisfying as that of any
artist it has been our good fortune
to hear. Ease and remarkable
breath control go together, and he
is as comfortable in the wide ranges
of his evenly developed voice as he
is in the center. His interpretations
are at all times guided by careful
artistic judgment. Only one thing
marred our pleasure in him and that
was a certain encore which did 'not
belong in that kind a program
and could easily have been dispensed

He opened the program with an
aria, "Pephtha,".by Handel, and im
mediately proved .what he could do
with his breath, his voice and the
English language. His legato in
certain passages of this number was
remarkable, and the many climaxes
were well built. "Phidyle," by Du
parc, and "D'Une Prison," by Hahn,
in the second group were artistic
gems, the latter with its compelling
emotional appeal, deeply impressive.
It was repeated. His closing group
was made up of four novelties, each
of which delighted in a different
way. An interesting number by Le
mare, "The Bells of Rheims," proved
an elaborate composition of the bal
lad tvoe. with several distinct
changes of thought in both words
and music, and a vivid climax to the

THAT some stories are strong
enough to play return engage
ments upon the screen in new
form is indicated by the success ob
tained by Cecil B. DeMille in filming
his second ahd modernized version
of "The Squaw Man," the famous
play by Edwin Milton Royle which
gained a large measure of fame four
years ago in m6tion picture theaters
over the country. An entirely new
production has been given the play
with the aid of one of the most re
markable all-star casts ever col
lected for a feature production, and
it will make its appearance shortly
upon the Artcraft schedule. The
first picturized version of "The
Squaw Man" was made four years
ago by Director DeMille, who suc
ceeded in producing one of the first
really great masterpieces of the
screen. All the modern improve
ments which enter into the making
of present day photoplays have been
utilized in the second production of
the masterpiece. Leading plavers
in the 100 per cent cast selected by
Mr. DeMille are Elliott Dexter, Ann
Little, Katherine McDonald, Theo
dore Roberts, Jack Holt, Thurston
Hall, Tully Marshall, Herbert
Standing and Edwin Stevens.
