Thev Washington .Symphony Orchestra u now,xperJenctna Hard struggle tor existence; similar 'to that which -the fa mous Boston Symphony Orchestra had to cope with In the early yean of Its existence. Washington, the Canltal of tne nation, wnere not only um ana and sciences, but music, should be in Its kishest form of development, is now asked to assltt in either the establish ment on a firm financial basis of the Washington Symphony Orchestra or aa- sist by not strinsT support in the pastlnc of this organization "and the opportunity to give Washington an Institution worthy of every citisen'a support. At a meeting of the board of directors of. the .Washington Symphony Orchestra, held last Thursday afternoon at the resi dence of Mrs. Robert Hinckley. 16S Six teenth Street Northwest, Helnricb Ham mer, -the conductor of the orchestra, made an eloquent plea for public sup port -of the orchestra. He took up the subject and discussed It from every view point, giving the members of the board and- those present bis experience of the benefits of such organisations In com munities where he has conducted sym phony orchestras and oratorio societies. Mr. Hammer said that the orchestra is an educational Institution, and people should not look upon It as giving to a charity when they subscribe to its sup port, but rather should feel that they are giving to a great educational Institution which will give its Influence to young and old for the good of the community. He said that In most Instances such or ganisations have been founded by the wealthy, and that such assistance has always been necessary to the develop ment of a symphony orchestra to the highest efficiency. Mr. Hammer is an able conductor and his work In this line In Washington Is well known to the musical public. He was born October 27. 1882. at Erfurt, In Germany, and began his career as a conductor at the age of twenty at Old' enburg. Following many successful en gagements as conductor in Stockholm. Oerebro, Amsterdam, Bochum (West' phalla), Lausanne, Geneva, and other places on the Continent, he came to America and has shown his unques tloned knowledge of his profession and has won the approval of those who know of his work. Following Mr. Hammer's address the board listened to a statement by J. Mar tin Serannage. treasurer and manager of the orchestra, who gives his time without remuneration for the success of a home Institution in which ho firmly belives. Mr. Serannage gave a detailed account of the amount subscribed for tickets for the proposed series of con certs for the present season and the amount subscribed to- the guarantee fund, and said that U.000 must be raised in addition to the funds now on hand and subscribed to carry the orchestra through this season. The board voted to announce the first concert for December 10 at the Colum bia Theater at 4:30 o'clock, and to wait upon several of Washington's leading citizens, explaining the situation to them, and asking for their co-operation and assistance. If the money necessary for the main tenance of the orchestra Is subscribed. It Is planned to give. In udditlon to the regular series of symphony concerts, a series of educational concerts, for the special benefit of the school children and others who wish to become familiar with the real makeup of a symphony or chestra, and the works which It inter prets. A short lecture will be given in connection with these concerts on what constitutes a symphony and the com posers Ideas as expressed In the com' position, and the reason certain lnstni' menu are used to convey the meaning or ine composers work, rt Is hoped that all Washington will respond generously to this worthy cause and will either subscribe for tickets or to the guarantee fund as early as pos sible, so that the board of directors of the orchestra can make arrangements to continue their plans for this season for the regular and special series of con certs. Any one Interested should communi cate with J. Martin Serannage, 1636 Seventeenth Street Northwest, treasurer and manager of the orchestra. The Boston Symphony Orchestra will rive the first of a series of five concerts :or tnis season, at the National Theater I next Tuesday afternoon at 420 o'clock. under the local management of Mrs. Wilson-Greene. It is now thirty-one years since the Boston Symphony Orchestra was lour.ded. by Henry Higxlnson. The first twentv years was a hard struggle for existence and Mr. Hlgglnson has many times gone down into his pocket to wipe ""' ueucii in me treasury. In a pro spectus. Issued by this organization In 1909, It Is declared that the irrh.,tn "provides music of the highest class In the most perfect manner possible." and that it Is "without a peer in this coun try and without a superior in the world." This proud position has been attained by this organization in the space of much less than thirty years, for it has been for many years on Its present high plane. The orchestra gives twenty-four puoiic renearsais and twenty-four con certs In Boston every season, and In ad dition some sixty or seventy concerts in other Eastern cities. The chief number of the programme 10 do given Dy tne orchestra next Tues dav afternoon. Beethoven's eighth svm Phony. was, apart from the great choral symphony, his pet work, although It was not for many years well received. Th first and fourth movements are full of ine spirit oi irouc and of a wild mood that Increase in intensity, until. In the finals It becomes a bolsterlous mixture cf tragedy, comedy, and farce. The sec ond and third movements are serene and beautiful, the allegretto exceptionally lovely. Following is the complete programme: Beethoven, Symphony No. S, F major. Op. 931. Allegro vivace e con brio; IT, Allegretto scherzando; III, Tempo dl menuetto; IV, Allegro vivace; Berlioz. Overture, "Le Camaval Romain." Op. 9; Liszt. "Mazeppa."

Arthur Smith, Is one of those artists who Is always assured, wherever she goes, of a large and devoted following. The devotion Is partly personal, for. In' addition to a bell-like voice, she has a daintiness of manner, a sparkle and gra cious charm that instantly wins an audi ence. Mme. Sembrlch has been an inde- ratigame worker; and In an Interview last spring she declared her artistic creed to ne a. sound nody, a sound mind, and plenty of hard work."" 8he, herself. Is a remarkable product of her code, for she Is an accomplished pianist and violinist, and speaks six languages. Artists 'assisting Mme. Sembrlch In her concert will be Frank La Forge, pianist, and Qulta Caslnl. 'cellist. The first concert by the Philharmonic Society of New York-will be given at the National Theater, Tuesday afternoon, November 36, at 430 o'clock, under the local management of- T.

He will be assisted by Imperatorl's Orchestra. Mr. Mills Is making a special feature this week of the desert songs. "A Lover In Damascus." composed by Amy Wood' forde-Flnden. These songs portray the passionate wooing of an Eastern lover, and the music Is typically Oriental In character. In the distance can be heard the tinkle of camel bells; again, the rhythmic awing or an Oriental dance: In fact, all of the songs carry the atmos phere ot the desert. The composer Is the wife of an English army officer, who has seen extensive service In the East, and she has made an exhaustive study of the music, man ners, and customs of the Oriental na tions while residing among them with her husband.

Mrs. Taffs Secretaries HjivecExactins Ditties - uAuWof Capital Matron Not Only Look After Actuizl Social SWtt, but Do Their Employer's - - Reading fon Her. . ' Few persons realize, what a prominent part in. the social life of Washington is played' by ths so-called "social 'secre tary." The ramifications of the dally etiquette of-official -life In the-Capluiare very, complicated, and thefe are many pitfalls for .the , unwary,, so 'that, even though a, woman may. have, been, quite familiar with the -social usages of some bis; metropolis ana? entirely "to the man ner horn." yet when-she. comes to Wash ington .it Is generally necessary for ber to have'a secretary, even though the sec retary does nothing. whatever but pro tect her from encroaching undesirables. those countless hangers-on In political life who have either some personal ax to grind or who are seeking favors from the wives of power-wielding husbands. . woman s success in Washington -de pends upon many things. She must have tact to basin with, a nice Judgment. much diplomacy and poise, a great deal of executive ability, and an extremely Intimate knowledge of who's who. It la In the pointing out of who's who that the social -secretary Is so particularly useful. Official life In Washington Is extremely exacting; so that a woman newly arrived upon the scene really needs the assist ance of some one who has spent an Sa tire life there and who really knows. For this reason social secretaries In the Cap ital are nearly always chosen from among the daughters of the old and distin guished families. It Is never difficult to find some member of an old family who Is not averse to increasing- her Income In this manner. The position, however. Is no sinecure, as the girl must not only known every detail of the complicated rules of social procedure In Washington, but also the varying shades of social pre ferment. In Washington the social secre tary enjoys undisputed social position. She does not lose her prestige when she becomes secretary, as she usually does in England. Her Datles Maay. The social secretary In Washington has her hands full. Her duties are many and ber occupations extremely varied, for not only is she obliged to look after the purely social end of the little game by directing her patron In the acceptance refusal of certain Invitations, the writing of notes, the placing of guests at dinners, and the like. but. what Is more to the point, she acts as a sort of Intelligence bureau for her employer. Pre sumably, the lady Is too busy to do any thing for herself, so the secretary reads the sapers. the new books, and the like. goes to the concerts and hears the new singers or attends the theater ana stuaies the new plays. Then she tells her em ployer all about these things, so that the busy lady may become entirely au cou rant with the topics of the times, world politics, local politics, art. literature, and the drama. In this way ths basy i ployer acquires small talk, . It Is tobe noted, however.- tha tha del secretary has become aVraarolar In stitution, and the.tavMi.tkaaaa.tba wom an employing one has no real aeed of her intellectually, yet for 'all'' that, 'she tonus a. part of every well-reguattad household In Washington. For Inatanfa.' It.' would be difficult fo lmaglne-any esss'la.Wash Ington who should, by the rales-of. the game, have leas need for a (social secre tary than the Prealdenfs wife.. Yet she has already had .four, from '-which It win be aeen that the routine of the 'Whits House Is very exacting, and that there has to be some one -to look after the de tails. Mrs. Taft has had years ot experi ence In -official society, and. no woman In Washington has a more intimate knowledge of social custom and proce dure than she, but no sooner had she established herself at the White House than she engaged the services of Hiss Helen Squires. Miss Squires, however, only agreed to give the work a trial, and after a. short time she retired, preferring- ber own desk in the War Department to the more ex acting; work, which was demanded by the "first lady of the land." She was, there fore, succeeded by Miss Alice 8. Blach. who remained with Mrs. Taft until her marriage to Lieut. Richard Walnwrlght. Jr., whom she met at the White House, by the way, while acting In her official capacity. Mrs. Tart then chose Miss Catherine Letterman for her secretary, and she proved a delightful one. and would nrob- ably have continued to fill the post until this day had not a severe Illness Inter rupted her work and necessitated her resignation. Mrs. Taft s present secre tary Is Miss Ruth Harlan, daughter of the late Associate Justice Harlan, of the Supreme Court, and she will undoubtedly remain with Mrs. Taft should Miss Let terman be unable to resume ber duties this winter. Mrs. Roosevelt came to Washington without any special knowledge of the peculiar conditions which obtain In Washington society, although she had always occupied an enviable social posi tion elsewhere. So she Immediately turned to Miss Isabelle Hagner, who be came her constant companion and to whom must be given credit for much of Mrs. Roosevelt's success while the colonel occupied the Presidential chair. There are a number of women in Washington, however, who do not bother about social secretaries, and these are often Just the women whom one would expect to find with secretaries tied to their apron strings. There is Mrs. Champ Clark, for Instance. But she Is reported to have said that social secretaries are all very well for society people, but that she does not want one. "Society women need them, no doubt, but I am not a so ciety woman I am Just plain folks." .WISE WOMEN ( (MswM)' Sara Duahatdt, cerj70 yean old, says that COTsesS ate afaioai mccoerfiag to syadkate stuf pataaW aa Sara a. k wis Sara wbo edgbated amlroat corsets.
