Tho incident occurred In the Oley Speaks "When the Boys Come Home," when a strain of "The Star-Spangled Banner" brought the whole audience to It's feet. At the conclusion of (he son? the singer gave "The Star-Spangled Banner" inviting the assembly to join. This It did. In a wjtole-hearted way. Rich masculine harmonies wer heard all around, and this great mass of people followed the artist in her expressive interpretation. Truly all America is finding Its voice! Mozart's "Lascia chio pianga." and the Bach "My Heart Ever Faithful" were classic contributions given dra matically, with almost too spasmodic accent, but the JLleurance' "Indian Love Song," with its gem of an ac companiment, was suave and lovely and had to be repeated. It was fol lowed by Chadwick's "Danza," given In delightful spirit, and the child war song of Carrie Jacobs Bond, "His But tons Are Marked U. S.'" also had to he given twice. "Sanctuary," by Mr. La Forge, was among her songs, also "Taps," a color ful war song by Pasternak, "Have You Seen Him in France?" by Ward Stephens. "When Pershing's Men Go Marching Into Picardy," by James H. Rodgers. and "My Son," by Carrie Jacobs Bond, given with much feel ing. As other encores Mme. Schu-man-Hcink. sang "Thy Beaming Eyes" of MacDowell, and "Danny Boy," an Irish song. World Ahead of Carver. In Charles Carver the acquaintance was made of a young singer who will surely go into the front ranks of bassos, of opera bassos one may ven ture to prophecy. His voice has rich beauty and vibrancy. It is admirably smoth throughout all its registers, and is excellently handled. That hc is a pupil df Mr. La Forge's is inter esting to know. His diction, ease and interpretive spirit were notable, and good style also graced his Handel "Come," Beloved." His range is ex tensive and his deepest notes ever musical. The "Little Irish Girl" stamped him a stage artist. The La Forge "To Our Boys" was a good marching sontr. and his encore by La Forge "Retreat" was most artistic as song and rendi tion. Mr. Carver gave an aria from "Ernani," feeling the melody of Verdi, and added "Annie Laurie" with good sentiment and diction. Mr. La Forge as pianist-composer played two of his own compositions, a "Romance" and a brilliant "Valse de Concert." He added as encore, Khowing his fluent technique, the staccato "Octave Etude" of Boothe. J. MacB.
