Interest Increased by Manner in
Which Lessons Have Been
! Defined.
Demonstration Will Show Eas
iest and Most Effective
t Methods for Kitchen.
Interest In the free cooking school and
food show The Times Is preparing to
give every day next week at the Arcndo
Auditorium Mb been especially aroused
by tho manner in which the scientific
cooking lessons have been defined by
those In charge. Mr. and Mrs.
Sherwood P. Snyder, of the West
Held Domestic Science and House
hold Appliance Exposition, who
have heen secured by The Times and
the McClure publications to conduct
these lectures and demonstrations, wish
to Impress upon tho housewife that
their work Is sc'entlnc-In the true sense
1 of tho word. Scientific means useful
knowledge acquired by observation and
practice, they state. Thus, the women
1 who have discovered the most efficient
way to clean their kitchen sinks have
discovered the most scientific way of
doing it.
Drudgery Eliminated.
Scientific, therefore, means tho most
efficient wav of doing the work of the
household and the value of the lectures
nnd demonstrations lies In the fact that
the lecturers and demonstrators have
been trained to observe household meth
ods and have worked out a practical
way to solve all home problems so that
household drudgery Is eliminated.
The lectures bv Mr. Snyder at cooking
classes In other cities have been largely
Attended. I'nlike mnnv cooking demon
strations nothing Is left to the imagina
tion of the audience. Everything enter
ing into tho reclne li shown to tho
class and explained. The mixing, bak
ing, and tare of tho article ufler cook
ing Is carefully explained. These cook
ing demonstrations arc conducted in full
View of the class In a model kitchen
on the stage. Tho kitchen Is in blue
nnd white tiling, and equipped with all
the latest time and labor saving de
Vices. The baking contest winners will be
rewarded with, prizes of a substantial
character, ranging from an automatic
cook stove, a kitchen cabinet or a
vacuum cleaner to a barrel of flour or a
case of spices. The Judging Is done bv
Mr, and Mrs. Snyder. Afterward tho
entries are turned over to a committee
from Jhe Associated Charities and the
articles sold, tho money being a gift
from The Times to further the work of
that association. In other cities sums
ranging from J50 up have been secured.
Free "Movies" Too.
The educational motion pictures at
night, which are also free, will give
everyone an opportunity of seeing how
the nationally known foods are pre
pared. Some 2S.ono feet of film will be
shown, there being a change of pro
gram each night. One of the newer ac
quisitions for tho motion picture enter
tainment Is a two-reel recent release en
tlt'cd "A Trip to New Yoik With John
Dough." Tlie storv Is interesting, and
thos tho exciting adventures of the
bread man In the big city. Aside from
the educational pictures, new reels of
bright comedies will be shown from tlmu
to time. One of tho best and newest Is
a recent releaso called "The Babv." In
w hlch aic featured Rosemary Theby
and Harrv Meycis. two popular stars.
The storv Is said to be Intensely funny.

Educated to Rescue Act.
The Federal reserve act, according to
Mr. Warburg, could never havo been
passed had not the entire country been
gradually educated to It. It has helped
to strengthen the financial condition of
the United States t'o such an extent that
he desorlhed panics, until recently re

House Is Sold Out For
A Tamer Ballet Russe
Features Objected to by Police Eliminated, Though
Director Serge de Diaghileff Calls Interference
"A Most Idiotic Affair."
NEW YORK. Jan. . More than ordi
nary Intereit centered about the per
formance of the Serge de Diaghileff Bal
let Russe at the Century Opera House
last evening. The big house was sold
out long before the doors were opened,
and hundreds of persons were turned
away. They all wanted to see whether
tho ballet director would carry out the
Instructions of the police and Chief
Maglsirate McAdoo to tone down and
eliminate several of the alleged objec
tionable features of "IApres Midi d'un
Fauno." which was tho offcrlnp.
Mr. Diaghileff declined befoiehand to
sav whether he had made any changes.
"Walt and see," was his only comment.
The audience waited and discovered
that the features objected to had been
eliminated. Representatives of the po
lico department, the Parkhurst Society,
and the Society for the Pre,vntion of
Vice who were present appeared to be
lieve that the conditions had been satis
factorily met. M A.
After the performance there was a
big demonstration by me audience and
several huge bouquets wero showered
on Leon Masslne, the principal dancer.
Kvervbodv was satisfied, although the
ballet director could not refrain from
saying that he thought the interference
from the police "a most Idiotic affair."
Conference Before McAdoo.

trate McAdoo to settle the moral status
of the ballet, was the conversational
description of the dances, against the
Influence of which reporters were
guarded by being kept outside, and
from which one of tho women critics
fled to the street with the explanation
that she really must telephone at once,
it was a sort of collaborated descrip
tion one gathered from the remaiks of
lawyers and other persons who- took
part after It was all over. Some, In
cluding tho woman critic who fled,
didn't think the ballets were very very
bad. but Howard Clark Barber, of the
Society for the Prevention of Crime,
and John S. Sumner, -who succeeded An
thony Comstock as secretary of the So
ciety for the Suppression of Vice, de
scribed some sinuous details na ex
ceedingly vivid. To all of which Mr.
Diaghlleff's monocle, as the conversa
tion was translated to him, bobbed In
and out of his eyes In remonstrance.
Those At Conference.
Besides Mr. Diaghileff there were at
the conference John Brown, business
manager of the Metropolitan Opera
Company: Alfred Scllgsbers. attorney
for the company: Deputv Police Com

Helen Hoffman, who didn't see anything
objectionable In the performance be
cause thev were so Interested In tho
grace of the dancers, and Oliver Rey
nolds, an attorney and also one of the
censors. A. A. Anderson, a friend of
Mnvor Mltchcl. and Magistrate House
nlso dropped lu and Mr. Andersou did
some Interpreting.
Mr. Brown opened the conference by
telling Magistrate McAdoo that the
opera company had no Intention of do
ing anything that might offend pub
lic morals, and that thev were willing
to do anvthlnir deemed necessary to
make the ballets Inoffensive. The two
dances In question were "IApres-Mldl
d'un Faune" and "Scheherarade." Not
onlv the dances themselves but the de
scriptions of them In the programs came
under the censure of the critics.
The programs describe In some detail
the sensations of the faun as he Is
aroused from a reverie on the rocks by
the coming of a band of nvmplis. who
dance around him until his wooing
drives them away in fright. One leaves
a ell which the faun takes to his rock
and falls upon. It was agreed that the
animal-like postures of the faun and
his handling of the veil should be
An Orgy Depicted.
In ''Scheherazade" an trgy takes
places In the harem during absences
of the Sultan nnmr.g the 'nmatcs and
negro slaves. The Sultan returns, "a
sinister tragedian of silence." as the
procram announces. "It Js a mudil-l-cent

of the "pawing." as It wim desciibedj
by censors or mc oance, win ue cn.ui
nated. Mr. Sellgsberg said after the confer
ence that he thought tho performance
could be so toned down that the artUtic
effect would not suffer. Commissioner
Dunham said there was never the
slightest belief that the opera directors
wished to present anything objcotlon
nble. and It was because of tho diver
sity of opinion among the persons he
had requested to sec tho ballets which
led him to present tho case to Magis
trate McAdoo and give the opera com
pany an opportunity to correct any
bald features of the performance.
As for Mr. Diaghileff. his Indignation
knew no bounds.
"It seems a bit abnormal after I
played the faun I'M or 140 tlmss to start
proceedings iraw," he said. "This per
formance was given before the Queen
of Knglnnd and the Kmperor of Ger
many, and they saw nothing In It to
object lo. Kverything can be immoral
or moral nccoidlng to the attitude of
the public."
