been declared off at the 11th hour
because of Cedar Rapids' summary
action. And so Friday has been set
as the date for the meeting, and

six-club league will be abandoned.
It la likely, however, that some other

prospects of forming the league bear
a gloomy aspect because of Cedar

the sight of the grapplers in action for

bring the Waterloo grappler down here

situation, is agreeable to the procras

TALKS ON INVESTMENTS
Shift in Money Centers.
Only a very few years ago the east
was absolutely the 'creditor of the
west. Money centers were confined
to the seaboard. After the ordinary
bond securities were absorbed, the
balance of money flowed to the west
and was Invested in farm lands, real
estate, buildings and other Improve
ments or their mortgages. The east
literally owned us; but with the rap-
Id growth of our wealth, our own
financial renters grew with It. In a
sense we are no longer debtors; we
have our own money to loan or to
Invest in bonds and similar securi
ties put out by cities, towns, states,
counties and bonds and stocks of cor
porations (public service corpora
tions) Industries and mercantile In
terests. The sale of bonds and short-term
gold notes throughout the west now
runs high into the millions. The
popularity of approved Issues In
which we are dealing exclusively, has
Increased materially during the past
few years, since their stability and
worth have proved highly satisfac

"1 want to duplicate for the tour of
'Louisiana Ixm' the very excellent
company I have playing in the La
Salle opera house in that musical
comedy," wired Harry Askin, the man
ager of the La Salle, from Chicago to
his New York city agent Nov. 1,
1911. A letter that followed said:
"When 1 wired you on the 1st Inst,
about a traveling cast of 'Louisiana
Lou' and said that I desired to dupli
cate the original La Salle cast, I did
not mean that I wanted you to hunt
for actors and singers who simply look
like members of the home cast. 1
mean that I want a duplication of tal
ent. If you can't get an actor or act
ress as good as any of those in the
La Salle, then get a better one!" It
Is Mr. Askin'8 idea that no La Salle
opera house play should be sent on
tour unless every man and girl In the
company is fitted In every way to ap
pear in the La Salle itself. Tnis is
his idea, and it is also the general
theatrical idea, of the acid test of mu
sical comedy ability to be able to
make good In the La Salle In Chicago.
A player who can please a Chicago
La Salle audience can please an audi
ence anywhere else in the world," is
an axiom of the latter day managers
of musical comedy and comic opera.
Manager Askin's traveling cast, to be
seen here at the Illinois April 1, well
bears the closest inspection by those
who know the most talented men and
women in musical comedy today. Vic
tor Morley, for example, is the sing
ing actor from London who was
brought to this country In . 1902 by
Henry W. Savage to create the role
o? the fop in "The Prince of "Pilsen.
Mr. Morley afterward was costarred
with Eddie Foy In "The Earl and the
Girl," and was for three seasons the
star of "Three Twins," playing the
role of Tom Stanhope, which he cre
ated in the Chicago production in 190S.
How highly he Is ranked by Manager
Askin was shown earlier In the season
when Morley was starred by that man
ager In "The Girl I Love."
