NEW YORK, April 25.—While
a neighbor’s phonograph played
a *azz record, Etta Stewart Col

musical comedy, committed sui
cide Tuesday by Inhaling gas in
a furnished room which she had
rented under an assumed name.
On a table nearby was a pho
tograph of the actress when she
was young, beautiful and prosper
ous. Propped against the picture
was an obituary notice of the
death May 13. 1908, of her hus
band, Joseph J. Collins, a concert.
singer and actor.
They were married in Brooklyn,
the obituary stated, while Mrs.
Collins was leading woman in
“The Red Mill." In the room
also was a picture of Mrs. Collins’
daughter, said to be a vaude
ville actress, and a big pile of
newspaper clippings, some of
them yellow with age, telling of
Mrs. Collins’ success on the stage.
MUSIC
A CHILDEN’S MATINEE CONCERT.
At this time, when the world is find
ing each day new possibilities as to the
capacity of children for grasping de.
tails as well as essentials long before
many of their elders would believe them
ready, the art of music, along with the
other arts and sciences, is revising its
previous state of rather careless con
descension toward children. The day
of the too childish or colorless program
for children is past. It is significant
that many composers have written and
are writing music especially for chil
dren, and this music is quite as clever
if not so emotionally deep as the music
written for adult audiences. The lead
ing orchestras are giving special edu
cational programs for children and,
through toy symphonies, children them
selves are encouraged to participate.

THE r EVENING * jgTXE,"' WXSHINUTON’, B. ~ ~C.,~ THURSDAY, ’APKIE 23, 19»,’
tlcularly appropriate program arranged
and presented for their special benefit
at Pierce Hall yesterday afternoon. Miss
Elena de Sayn, well kuown In many
musical activities here, planned and
supervised the affair as well as partici
pating, In it. The patronesses Included
the wives of three cabinet officers, wives
of several diplomats and a group of
women prominent in various organized
efforts for educational progress In the
National Capital.
Nothing could have been more de
lightful for the opening number than
Saint-Saens’ “Carnival of the Animals,'
with its lions, chickens, cuckoos, lark,
swan and more of the wilder animals.
Even the fossils had a haunting, color
ful melody and the familiar swan num
ber was given particularly well by the
violoncellist. Malton Boyce and James
R. Barr were equally admirable at the
two pianos. All the members of the
Societe des Concerts Intimes who par
ticipated showed alert spirit and facile
technique In this selection.
Mme. Marta Patsu, Hungarian pianist,
who was guest artist on this program,
played Mozart's “Sonata in E Flat
Major.” Mme. Patsu was heard earlier
in the Winter in a concert at which
she won special recognition for her
understanding interpretations of works
by her modernistic countryman, Bela
Bartok. Her Mozart yesterday was not
so colorful as her playing of the more
modern works. The crisp delicacy and
lilting melodies Inherent In Mozart’s
works did not stand out yesterday.
There are few performers who can
master both the old and new com
posers, so totally different structurally
and otherwise.
The small orchestra, with Mr. Boyce
at the piano, played a group of clever
tone pictures for children, written by
Rebikow and arranged by Maud Sewall.
This series not so subtle or
melodious as the Saint-Saens carnival.
The lento and finale from Dvorak’s
“American String Quartet” was the last
number on the program, although two
