23 SHE'S GREAT SINGER IN
San Diego, Cal. Only 23 years old,
a beautiful girl with a voice that has
been declared wonderful, and a fu
ture that many older musicians would
These are the attainments of Mme.
Navara Toye, famous lyric-coloratura
soprano, who has already made
two successful tours in America and
is now in California on her third.
She has studied with the greatest
masters of the French, Italian and
German schools, and has a repertoire
of 26 operas, sung in four languages.
FOR THE GULLIBLE
Up at Seattle and other points in
the Northwest is a woman who is
reaping dollars by lecturing on "Is
Your Husband True to You?" She is
talking to halls packed with women
and keeping secret what she says.
If she were an old woman parrot
ing on anarchy, a mob from the
Chamber of Oosnmcro would prob
ably take masks and clubs and run
her out of town. If she were an 80-year-old
"Mother" Jones telling un
ionists not to desert their fellows, she
would be jumped on and' jailed by
state, county and militia officials.
But she is only undermining homes!
Her very topic is full of pure cussed
ness. Of course, no sensible woman will
permit any other woman to cast sus
picion on the faithfulness of her hus
band through a lecture, but in these
audiences there will be foolish wo
men who will get their first suspicion
of their husband's loyalty, and imagi
nation and jealousy will do the rest,
to the everlasting misery of husband
and children, if any.
Deny this woman the right to lec
ture? No. Avoid her. Treat her as
you would the smallpox, or anything
else that contaminates, only such so
cial disorder is much easier to put
down than any physical disease. Like
lecturers over whom society throws a
fit because society thinks its privi
leges are endangered, this lecturer
will quit when the quarters or half
dollars are not forthcoming.
