AS TO THE NEW NAMES
A Word in Favor of College Boulevard
' and Jackson's Drive.
. Rock Island Oct. 22. Editor The
Argus: There can be no reasonable
doubt in the minds of thinking people
that the new Seventh avenue shouli
bo, properly designated as a boulevard.
Beyond the mere numerical signifi
cance, Seventh .avenue does not mean
any more than anv other thoroughfare.
And yet is more. It is now or at lea?t
soon will be, a distinctive drive, one
to which the public attention should
be directed. President Andreeh of
Augustana college has written to Th?
Argus a strong and an excellent letter
in favor of naming it College boule
vard. So it should be designated,' an 1
I am. in favor of naming the beautiful
roadway through Long View park with
a wing on Twelfth avenue facing the

or three generations he has earned
the title "The Grand Old Man of Scen
ery. The ballet has been organized
on a scale commensurate with the pro
duction's pretensions as a scenic cre
ation. The dances are put on bv M.
F. Trostler of Cleveland, Ohio. Mr.
Trostler has been as close a student
of dancing as Mr. Armbruster has of
scenery. . His marvelous efficiency in
arranging and directing great ensemble-
effects is demonstrated by the fact
that he once conceived and put-into
successful execution the idea of plac
ing no less than five hundred couples
upon the floor in a series of intricate
figures. Much research has been px
pended not only in the plays and vol
umes available in the congressional
library, but on private collections sM
well, in order to reconstruct a corret-t
picture of the people and the land
scape of ancient Egypt. A musical
director as well as an expert electri
cian accompany the organization.
In addition to Mr. Hanford as An
tony and Miss Wilson as Cleopatra,
John M. Kline, who played Cassius
last season, will appear as Enobarbufl,
George C. Gunther, who played Brutus,
will appear as Caesar, and Alexander
McKenzie, who had the role of Casc-i
will be seen as Alexis.

selections of classical compositions are
played on the violin, but the novelty of
the act lies in the fact that Fernando
is able to create more music out of any

of string produces music of rare tone.
