evening, inaugurating a long roncert
tour of the United States The band,
which comes direct from the fighting
fronts cf France, consists of sixty-five
instrumentalists and has been organ
ized by Lieutenant Europe along the
most approved, modern lines, it is of
a quality that will compare with the
best military concert bands in any
country; but has the advantage of
presenting a style of musical enter
tainment that is unique and all its

melodic craze of the entire world. But

lias nothing in common with the .tin
pan effects of the dance orchestras, it
is tile music with which Lieutenant
Europe entertained tiie doughboys in
Franco the music witli which he won
the hearts of the Parisians and set
