New and Increased activities along varl oua lines were shown ia the reports given last evening at the regular January meet ing of the members of the T. M. C. A., which was held In the assembly room of the new building. The program was under the direction of the educational depart ment and Judge Anson S. Taylor, a mem ber of the educational committee, pre sided. After a prelude from the association or chestra tho reports of the various depart ments were considered. Ralph Shepherd, secretary of the Swimming and Life Saving Club, gave un encouraging statement of the intorest that was shown in the club. He stated that the trials for membership in tho club had been going on during the past couple of weeks and that many had entered. The club, he said, would start with a flourishing membership. Water polo will be taken up soon, the plans to be made nt the meeting to be held next Friday evening. John Bausir, chairman of the gymnasium social committee, announced that a social for men will be held in the gymnasium in the new building on Friday, January 26, at S o'clock, and tt is expected that an en joyable evening will be spent. Coach Stewart discussed the prospects for the track team for the association which will enter several indoor meet? in this vicinity in the near future. He stated that the ma terial is good and that the development of the team will be demonstrated Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons, on the gymnasium track. For the educational department, it was stated that a class In newspaper illus trating will soon be organized as a regular course In the association, with L. C. Pedler as the Instructor. A law club has recently been formed with fifteen charter members, it was reported, and 'the reorganization of a de-battng club which was active two years ago has been accomplished under the direc tion of Messrs. Hlne, Speer and Hunta berger. Substantial progress in the estab lishment of reference libraries in the vari ous departments was also reported. Support of Foreign Secretaries.

It was also announced that the lectures of Dr. Nathaniel West on Reve lations will continue every Tuesday evening for the next ten weeks, and that a large registration i3 expected at the opening of the course. The recent Bible study rally held in the association building was attend ed by 125 men. Including many who had been converted to the Christian faith through the big meetings. In behalf of the social committee L. J. Carver urged that the lobby be used more as a center of social Intercourse and for the use of the members' meetings as a place for extending acquaintanceship. The New Tear reception was reported as being a great success, with over 3,000 present. An important and unique innovation In the work of the local association was taken up by John B. Sleman, jr. He spoke about the reception to the boys employed at the Woodward & Lothrop store as a great suc cess. That preceded the announc?inent that a class would be formed for working boys over fifteen years of age, in which reading, writing and arithmetic will be taught. It will be designed to mwt the special needs of those boys who have to work during the day but who desire an elementary educa tion, which they can take up In the evening. Striving for 3,000 Members. Three thousand members before June 1 is the ambition of the association officials, as stilted last evening by L. G. Honodel. This will mean 54<? new members before that date, and they will be obtained through a quiet campaign by the members, each ob taining one new member. The enlarged fa cilities of the new building can be better developed with the larger membership, and strong efforts to increase it will be made. At the close of the business E. 13.

The -first impression would naturally toe that a f Jay about Washington -would have a particular interest and charm for "the res idents of the capital city. Amusing as the embassy ball Is in many respects. Hs ap peal to Interest 1s no stronger here than !t would be anywhere else. The new vehicle which Mr. Augustus Thomas has provided for that unique and" many ways remarkable comedian, Mr. Lawrence D'Oraay, presents pictures of this locality which correspond rather to a stranger's impressions than to a resident's knowledge. In choosing this city for his scene Mr. Thomas was prob ably influenced by the desire to lntrochice a novelty In dramatic locale. So far as the action of the piece is concerned, it might as well have been laid in Newport. New York or Peoria. The close, accurate study of which Mr. Thomas has shown himself ca pable In other productions is not manifest ed to the degTee which might be expected. His political types are the conventional ex-' aggerations of current pictorial satire, nnd the only local allusions are in the nature of familiar sarcasms on the quietude of the Senate. But these comments have no more to do with the case than the title of the play has to do with the story. They bear on It only remotely. There are things which might have been, but finding that they are not, the auditor turns to other promises or interest and ilnds himself everv now and then generously rewarded. There is none of the glare and gaiety of a diplomatic function such as the name of the play brings to rAind. It is the usual story of complicated love affairs and personal mis understandings, with a leavening of mis taken Identity, which have done service so often. The Embassy Ball" weaves its entangle ment with enough threads of unusuai tint and enough originality in pattern to give freshness to the fabric. But it is upon Mr. p Orsay that the amusement of the even ing depends almost wholly. The play ,ht?has been characteristically liberal in the bestowal of the humorous lines, and he has dealt them out with an impartial hand. But for the purpose of mere fun Mr. s Personality, well groomed and gentlemanly, rises superior to anything J-tP conseoutive and lucid speech may de e",, ?. Senla! "Haw-haw!"

In this respect the management has apparently spared no expense. The stage settings met instant approval by the audi ence when the curtain was raised on each of the three acts. 1 The music of the opera Is pretty, with animated ensembles. Some of the solos were very good, but there was an occa sional strain that reminded one most forci bly of good things gone before. While the melodies are spirited and ample opportun ity Is afforded the singers, there Is a sin gular absence of the tempo one most nat urally expects ln anything Mexican or Spanish. "Mexicana" without the click of the castanets and the cadences of a "Ha banera"?distinguishing characteristics of the Spanish race?Is like English plum pud ding without the sauce. The style of danc ing characteristic of the Spanish life is but scantily ln evidence. The company is large and most handsome ly dressed ln the costumes of Mexico and the groupings of the chorus afford 'some strikingly beautiful pictures. The cast is well-balanced and rendered good service. The well-known players Thomas Q. Sea brooke, Joseph Herbert, Christie MacDon ald and Blanche Deyo are in the company. Mr. Seabrooke has won popularity with Washington audiences ln former produc tions, and his humor retains its strong In dividual stamp. Miss MacDonald, in the picturesque role of an Indian girl disguised ln the striking costume of a vaquero, appeared most ac ceptable as the heroine of the story. She rendered several songs in good voice. Ed mund 6tanley and Edward Mantlndell, two members of the casrt, showed good voices in their respective roles.

Majestic Theater. On the strength of the hit they made In Washington last year the Rays. Johnny and Emma, attracted a goodly audience to the Majestic Theater last night to witness their reproduction of the musical farce, "Down the Pike." Several of the favorKe numbers still had undisturbed place In the show, and there were new songs and laugh producing jokes In abundance. The temper of the audience showed that the Rays have not lost thefr power to please, for the dif ferent songsters In the cast were compelled to answer repeated encores. "Down the Pike" opens with a scene typical of the modern apartment house, and Johnny Ray, otherwise Casey, the Jan itor, gives a humorously exaggerated por trayal of that autocrat of the downstairs regions. "His facial grimaces never failed to appeal. What does duty for the plot of the play hinges on the efforts of Russell Keene and Jack Noble, in real life Dan Coleman and Louis Powers, to hide their true identities by disguising themselves as replicas of Casey, while Ralph Rock away as Harry Wilder, appears in the make-up of his uncle, Keene. Emma Ray as Mrs. Keene discovers the false Mr. Keene, apparently enamored of Plurette, a French milliner, and the humorous situa tions made possible by the tangle of per sonalities are multiplied to the best ad vantage. The scene of the last act repre sents "The Pike" at the St. Louis fair. Academy of MuBic. "Young Buffalo, King of the Wild West," an exciting melodrama by Charles E.
