The words are no longer a mere phrase, r but a fact. , A rehearsal was in progress recently of the opera "Pagliacci," by Leoncavallo, which the Community Opera of Washington is preparing and which it will sing in Ital ian. The rehearsal was being held in one of. the clubs of the "War Camp Community . Service. Seeing a stalwart- soldier listening' at the door with evident joy iiuthe music, Director 'Albion invited him to ; "come in and sing." "I no sing," he answered, and his accent proved him j aniltalian. "But my brother, he sing. I educated him and f he sing nowin Chicago Opera." Then, with a sudden smile 1 he-said: "I understand every word they say!" lan Imposing' patriarch in the role of club will not be duly chronicled with out mention of many who labored for the success of the performance of "The Wizard of the Nile." Victor Herbert's comic opera that wan pre sented so artistically at Central High School, under the direction of Dore Walten. musical director. The cast of principals, all students of the school, was composed of Stephen Fegan, a graduate this yeaf, Gladys I. Price, soprano primadonna, Margaret Hughes, Harry I. Clark son. Sisrmund Sachs."

Paul, . but his love of Italy the land of his ! birth and of his traditions was the 1 olI out of which his good citizenship In the land of his adoption is to grow. Only music could have fed that 4 heart hunger, and brought in & still I strange land, that feeling' of home ties and home sympathy. Community music in Washington is i marring a national end "by giving these new citizens some of the xnel- , ody that Is hid In their hearts. t The Ukrainian Opera brought to . Central High School, in the audience, a group of people new to our civic . ratberings--and after all. civic ftmc- tioas are and must be kept broadly l democratic, "for the people" 'must ! embrace them alL A national contribution to music I was. the presentation of the TIddlsh . opera, "Shulamls," a classic in Jewish ' rnaaic, that was given, under the aus t pices of the Y. M. H. A by the Jewish j welfare board, at the W. C C. S. j Club on Tenth street, Sunday evening. , "Shulamls" is a patriarchal Bible i atory.

Estelle Schreiner. so prano. and Leon Rosensteln, tenor, were both vocally excellent, and Elda Laska, contralto, completed a cast who gave this declamatory music, with a bit of warm melody Inter twined, a commendable rendition. Kaminsky. the bass-buffo. Dlaved the part of the slave, the "black." in broad lines. The picturesque feature of the drama was the interpretive dancing of Isaiah Gluck. whosesnrea- .entatlon. of the ."Storm" rose to the standard of the Russian ballet, even though the size of the stage limited him. Jean Paurel was the musical director. On Thursday last, at the National Theater, a concert was given under the auspices of Trinity College for the benefit of the Sisters of Notre Dame of Namur, in Belgium.
