THE WASHINGTON TDIES, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 1914. SZCOOOFREPtflS Seventy-Five Taken From Ad joining Stable as Paving Plant Burns. Many People Sing, of the Good Ship, Bat Voegtlin Put Pinafore on Water A stubborn fire which started early today in a one-story building at Twenty-first and E streets northwest, be longing to the Cranford Paving Com pany, damaged the building and its I contents to an extent estimated at 520.000 and threatened to spread to sev eral large buildings near by. Adjoining the building in which the fire started are the brick stables of the Chris. Hcurich Brewing Company, which held seventy-live horses on the first floor, the two upper floors being lled with hay. " The horses were led into the street as soon as the fire was discovered. The Analostan Boat Club is but seventy-five feet from where the fire was raging, and th stables and store rooms of Littleford. Alvord & Co. are across the street from if. It was to save these buildings that Capt 1 f. T. Martin turned in a second alarm as soon as he arrived at the scene of the Are, at C:35 o'clock. Started By Automobile. Firemen who answered the first Alarm were told that the blaze started while employes of the paving company were crank'.ng an automobile. The building was used as a storeroom for paving machinery and material, and a large part of the damage was that done to steam rollers, concrete mixers, an automobile truck. and mixing troughs. Engine Company 23 was the first to reach the fire, and it found the big room so filled with smoke that it was difficult to locate the blaze. Doors were battered in on three sides of the building, and a company was Dent to the edges of the roof when the center caved in. to flqht the flames from above. Men were also stationed around the Analostan club house, a large wooden structure containing many valuablo canoes and outriggers, to extinguish any stray sparks that fell about it. Horses Cause Confusion. Soma confusion was caused when the horses taken from the Heurlch stables began to fill the streets down which the lire department apparatus was com ing, but there were no collisions. Sev- ral engine companies went down New Hampshire avenue, from where they were able to reach the burning building from the rear. "KlNpCypTVtl'vE IrApoiCAnT f tMATloh PuTHFKX-LrO IN VfATER. HP IAuNi?

There they will see the big: pro duction of "Wild Flower," by the Famous Players company, headed by Marguerite Clark. The boys have been very anxious about the produc tion of this play because they were Informed a day or two ago that Man ager Moore had invited them to at tend the performance tonight. Tom Moore has a big place in his heart foi newsboys because he was one of them, himself, once and he knows all about the kinds of things they like. He especially selected thij production for their benefit because it tells a most interesting story and is produced by one of the prettiest girls on the st ape. The tickets for the theater will be Tgiveii out to the boys by the circula tion department of The Times today and a representative of the paper will be on hand at the theater to see that the youngsters are all properly seated. Manager Moore also will be there -o welcome them, and it is expected that a big time will result from this combination.

Simplicity, according to the most learned analyzers of character. Is the bir note true greatness strikes that vibrates every soul big and little. Be it literature or art or science or mechanics it is the simple thins that has the direct appeal which finds response from the meanest mind as well as the most cultivated. The very small est intelligence, for instance, can grasp the simplicity and atmo sphere of Venus de Mllo. Indeed, for absolute simplicity and com mon garden atmosphere the Milo masterpiece has quite cornered the artistic pastry. There Is nothing about Venus but atmosphere at mosphere so simple that even a fterson without the eyes of an art st could see through it. And in science why, before Walter. John son commenced trying to bend them and relied on the science of speed only, nothing could be simp ler than the way he struck them out, three in a row, inning after inning; If it had not been for Venus no one would ever have heard of Milo, and Walter Johnson would have continued to hoe corn near Coffeyville but for his fast one. And so in the performance of a great task it is the "Imple directness that strikes into every mind which reaps the reward. Therefore, the greatness of the jrreat mind is the ability to hitch simplicity of expression to direct ac t'on, nnd thus form a team that will pull the world up bv the roots, if necessary. Almost everv great thing or man or event that has happened In the world has had a foundation of this kind. Take, for instance, rhat is regarded as one of the really big achievements in the amusement world the production of Gilbert & Sullivan's "Pinafore" at the New York Hippodrome last spring the same production, bv-the way. which is coming to the National Theater next week. Tou know. I've got to cite an example for almost every thing ip the amusement world be cause that is the world with which I am most familiar and then Ihere are other reasons which I check up with the grocer and the landlord and the pns companv ever so often that are ciuite as cogent. Name Without a Ship. But just consider that big produc tion of "nnafore" as an example of what simplicity of expression and directness of action will do. "Pina fore" Is the name of a ship. It was invented b Sir Arthur Sullivan and Sir W. S. Gilbert, thirty-six years ago. Sullivan composed some music. Gilbert evolved some woros. and they made an opera of the combina tion and called it "Her Majcsty'u Ship Pinafore. Nobody ever built more than half of that ship the half w . ARTHUR, VOKaTilN S 52r- . - the audience sees trom the audi torium. For thirty-six year., there fore, a perfectly good name for a ship was passed by word of mouth clear around the world several times without there being a single ship to pin it on. That is, a real ship built to be a "Pinafore." A number of realists from time to time oainted the name on some old hulk and pro duced the opera. But nobody evor built a real "Pinafore." When Lee ShubcTt conceived the Idea of reviving the opera at the Hippodrome last spiing, he wanted to do it in an original way. And so he called Arthur VoegUin into his office and asked him what he should do with "Pinafore." Right away the really big mind of Voeptlin asserted itself: "Put it on a ship." he said. There's your simplicity and direct ness: And Voegtlln said it quickly, quietly, between puffs of a big black cigar. (And. by the way, Just pro nounce It like it was spelled "Vote lln" Arthur didn't have anything to do with Inventing his name, and that Is why it doesn't partake of Ills simplicity.) Lee Shubert grasped the idea at once. Put it on a ship! Very good, he announced, but what was he going o do with a ship at the Hippodrome he wanted Voegtlln to tell him. Two more puffs from the Voegtlln cigar and then "Put it In water!" Shubert Also Simple. What more natural what more appropriate than to put the name on a 6hip because it was the name of a ship, m'.nd you, and then put the ship in water? Absurdly simple. And so It appeared to Lee Shubert, who can be Just as simple as Arthur Voegtlln at times. His answer was: "Do it." Up to this point we have outlined how simply a thing comes to mind. There are. no doubt, a lot of people in the world who could have said what Arthur Voegtlir. said in Just as simple a manner as lie said IL But thp great point is that Voegtlln not only said it. but he did it hitching up directness of action with Ii'h simplicity of expression. And that Is what marks the difference between the ordinary and the great mind. Voegtlln went directly from the Shubert piivate office, built the shin, stuck on the name, "put It in water, and produced the opera. That is the kind of person oegt lln Is. Some people call him a genius. He hits in his library and Wi 3.50 3.75 s4 4.50 & $5 SHOES W. L. DOUGLAS SHOES ARE ALWAYS WORTH THE PRICE YOU PAY FOR THEM.

For som years past he has been doing just that and drawing a salary almost as large as the President of the United States for doing it. The job is really a better one than being President. It's steadier. And there's not so much competition about it. Every small boy in the country starre growing up to be President and sev eral of them have become Presi dent. But up to yet there has Joint ly been one Arthur Voegtlln. He started out to be a scene painter.' His lather was a scene painter and was one of the best known in the country- Hut there were bigger things than merely paintings scenes. The younger Voegtlln thought he would like to create something with more realism to it than merely painted canvas. Or he want ed to attach more realism to tho canvas when he couldn't get along wlthouf it. And so he started de signing productions like the Hip podrome gives every year and ho has done one arter the other, until it almost seemed that he had ex hausted even his resources. Tfie "Pinafore" production was the fin ishing touch. Resembles a Chimney. Voegtlln i3 a tall man a very tall man. And ne reminds one of a perambulating chimney when ho Is In action. He is never without a long black cigar and when he Is hard at work he walks about trail ing a cloud of smoke behind him. Hut those who watch the smoke trail closely see a great spectacle rising when it disappears. His con struction of the "Pinafore" is a sample of tho way he works. First he secluded himself in the library ol his Riverside drive apartment evening alter evening, slouched in a big arm chair thinking out his plan. When he became tired of sitting in the chair he would put on his hat and take a long Walk into the country. He figured out the construction of the phlp. the rigging and build, the way In which the Looks Like a Perambulating Chimney as He Works, But Gives Spectacle to Those Who Watch Him Smoke. leading characters in the opera would mako their entrances and exits to and from the ship in small boats and then he worked out a color scheme for the costumes or the chorus and a way to drill the chorus over the ship so that it would add to the realism of the prqr duction. Then he went down to the Hippo drome and commenced the actual work of construction. Here again the simplicity and originality of Arthur Voegtlln asserted Itself. Most people build a ship and then launch it in the water. Arthur Voegtlln never gave a thought to the water part of it until the ship was complete and then he brought the water to the ship. Instead of putting the ship on the ocean as any other shipbuilder would do, he brought the ocean to the ship some fifty tons of ocean real wet watery ocean that boats can float on and people can swim in. And when things were all ready he told tho stage manager to go ahead with the acting and singing part of It. Local Talent Has Big Part. That is how the big production of "Pinafore" that comes here to tho National Theater next week, was constructed. And this good ship "Pinafore" was so beautifully built that it can be taken apart and set up again anywhere there happens to be room for it and water can bo obtained to float It. Next week, therefore, the patent stage that Morgan Sherwood designed and In stalled in the National Theater last summer will be an ocean with local talent in the shape of fifty tons of Potomac water playing the import ant part of the ocean. The whole thing was really simple. All there was to it was to build a ship, and surround it with a sufficient amount of ocean. But It is the kind of sim plicity that forms the keynote to greatness which did it and up to the present time Arthur Voegtlln has a monopoly on its production so far as it applies to the amusement business.
