' Washington. July 31.
Dear Friend Claude:
Well, .here I am In Washington, and
the first thing I did what do you
think was to drop in and see this
here now Jack Edwards, who you
said was manager of the Sbubert
Garrlck Theater, you know. Well,
Claude, you sure told me right, be
cause when I told him you told me
to tell him I was your friend he did
what you told me he would do, and
reached down In his safe and got out
something they voted against at the
Capitol some time ago and him and
me had some. Well, Claude, then we
stept out of his office and I thought
the house was dark, because there
wasn't no matinee this afternoon
when I saw him. But what do you
think Claude there on the stage was
six of the classiest chickens you ever
saw and a fellow. So I ast Jack, or
maybe Td ought to call him Mister
Edwards, what they was doing there,
and he says OH, that's going to be
our chorus next week. Seem, Claude,
like they was rehearsing to play the
chorus parts in a show called "The
Only Girl," that the Garrick Theater
stock company Is going to pull off
next week, so I sat down and watched
them awhile. There was one, the
second from the right, Claude, that
was all there. You know me, Claude,
But they was all pippins, so I ast Mis
ter Edwards who are they? He said.
OH, they are all Washington girls.
Gee, Claude, I never knew Washing
ton was so classy before. But this
follow what's up there. Mister Ed
wards says his name is Walter Mor
rison, was driving them girls hard.
He was making them sing and dance
their parts. And listen. Claude, they
had on tight skirts like, and when
they tried to take some of them steps
they didn't have room, so this "Mor
rison fellow told them not mind him
and pull up their skirts a little so
they could get the steps easier. And
Claude, they did.
Well Claude, you know I was sup
posed to leave Washington on my
route tomorrow, but I ain't going1 to
now. " I'm going to stay over here and
see this show, because, believe me,
Claude, that's some chorus. Anyway,
Claude, you know me.
As ever, ABE.

Herbert Gould, well-known navy
song leader, returned to the Great
Lakes Training Station this week,
after a two weeks' stay with the At
lantlc. fleet on board the U. S. S. Mis
sissippi. This Is the first time In the
history of the navy that a song leader
has been detailed to a ship, but the
remarkable success of Mr. Gould's ex
periment is no doubt the forerunner
of what may become a permanent fea

natured songster engaged the crew in
chorus singing, leading them in new
popular airs. A big, pleasant, lively
voice, his chief asset, his good humor
and honest effort to make everyone
sing, has gained for him the hearty
good-will of 1,400 men who joined blm

RUBYE IS INTERVIEWED
CONCERNING
DORALDINA
Coraldina, who is appearing in
Thomas Dixon's latest drama, -The
i Red Dawn," at the Belasco Theater
this week, is seen in a double role:
t dancer and an emotional actress.
Vs a dancer she Is called upon to
'xecute several original and daring
numbers; as an actress she has sev
eral Intensely dramatic moment,
described as a "child of joy" in the
play, Doraldina is given wide scope to
display her dancing ability as well as
her beauty of legs. During the action
or the drama she has several lovers,
with the farcical result that she can
not settle down with any particular
one of them. Her obvious theory is
that "variety is the spice of life." and
It is only when the free love doctrine
brings about much bloodshed, that she
realizes for the first time that the
laws of society and God are the real
solution to happiness.
Over a dozen prominent actresses
"tried out" for the role that Is being
Interpreted by Doraldina, but none
of them, according to Oscar Eagle,
who directed the play, possessed the
many qualifications of this player.
Doraldina has a Broadway reputa
tion ao an exceptional dancer. She
has never before been seen in a
"speaking part." However, she has
the so-called "dramatic fire" that is
responsible for 90 per cent of stage
land's greatest stars. She possesses

seems that that sentence tells the
most Important thing about this
beauty of the stage and screen. She
loves people and she loves to do
things for them. She's the sort of
girl who would share her last cent
with anyone who happened to need
It.
"I love people who do big things,"
she went on. "and most of all people
who start with nothing and in spite
of tremendous discouragement reach

wen. sne went on, "I'm not sure
that I wouldn't rather play leads for
a wonderful leading man. than I
would be leading lady myself and
have to bear the entire burden.
You can't imagine the fun Harold
Lockwood and I used to have. He
could keep the side of his face to
ward the camera perfectly serious,
and at the same time say something
absolutely ridiculously that would
make the rest of us almost ruin the
scene."
She drew a long slch and nnirt
for a moment, but Rubye de Remer
never could be sad for very long,
and she proceeded to tell us how
happy she was working under the
direction of Edward Jose in "Fires
of Faith." and just how great and
wonderful this picture would be.
Kenneth Clark, who as Y. M. C. A.
song leader became a friend to Wash
ington and proved a helpful and in
spiring spirit in the troubled times of
war in the National Capital, was a
stimulus to the music aboard the
United States ship Kroonlaqd when
he returned home last month with
the Seventy-ninth division.
"When I was in Paris a short
while before sailing," Mr. Clark said
in an article in Musical America. "I
called to see Ernest B. Chamberlain,
who now has charge of the Y. M. C.
A. song leaders' division overseas. He
showed me letters from the welfare
officers of four divisions and of two
base sections, asking the Y. M. C. A.
to send out a team of song leaders
for their troops, as promised in a
bulletin from G. H. Q. This official
recognition of the work-of the song

the experiments along- the line of

charge of the mass sieging campaign
of tho "Y."
In some accounts of the rich variety
of concerts In ParlB at the present
time, Mr. Clark brings news of a mu
sician well known in Washington.
He says:
"At this concert I met Walter
Charmbury, formerly bandmaster of
the 304th engineers of our division.
Since leaving us he had received his
commission as second lieutenant. He
told me that he was In a piano class

Music by. Radio! Reports have come
in of dancing to music by radio in
mldocean. The fact seems as much a
miracle as a literal acceptance of the
above sentence might justify.
And the tacts are that radio has
"picked up" music from one vessel at
sea, and been used on another ship
far distant to furnish a pastime for
the passengers.
Out at the Bureau of Standards, too.
music by radio has been used for
dancing. And this is the way it is
handled:
A phonograph was used for the mu
sic, placed in the basement of the
radio building. Then the radio ap
paratus was adjusted to it in the same
way It is used for transmitting a mes
sage. The "receiver" was set up in another
building, where the dancing was held,
the sound being received through
what looks like the usual telephone
transmitter. It was then magnified,
by means of a megaphone, so that it
could be heard all over the room.
This receiving apparatus was dem
onstrated to the writer at the Bureau
of Standards recently. And taking it
from a purely unscientific viewpoint
merely as- an astonishing, and to
the scientists whose work finds this
music but an episode, as but a casual
illustration it still furnished a fas
cinating promise of a later develop
ment. How It Is Done.
The wires of the "receiver" are In
sulated in what loosk like, a crude
pine window frame, such as is used
In building. To this was attached a
"field box" used where transportation
of the apparatus Is desired. Then the
telephone receivers were given the
writer, and there you were! The fact
that space and no visible connection
served to bring the sounds are now
facts that are too well known to re
quire an exposition of this most un
canny of modern inventions.
At the Metropolitan Opera House,
some time ago, the directors had a
telephone adjustment in the private
offices in the front of the building
whereby they could by the opening
of the connection hear what was go
ing on, on the stage.
But how much more wieldly seems
the "wireless." And the sound, as

DANCING
to the music of the
AEOLIAN-VOCALION
THE graceful, gliding
measures of the dance
what fun, what exercise they
are!
And the Vocation, with its clear, .'
carrying quality of tone is the ideal
music for dancing.
The new Vocalion Dance
Records are already famous ; but
the Vocalion plays every standard
phonograph record with great A
beauty.
Don't decide on a phonograph
until you hear the Vocalion. It
has no equal.
