LOVES BILLIARD GAME 'Noted Player Also Has Decided Inclination to Painting. Ol* Morningstar Has Never Used Hla Artistic Ability as a Source of Revenue—Has Originality in j~ His Methods. Ora Morningstar, until recently widely known as one of the foremost billiard players of the world, was un certain for many years as to the pro fession he would choose. It was a tdSB-up between billiards and painting, and his 'inclination was decidedly to wards the artistic career. The result bafe te^n somewhat of a compromise, for while Morningstar is famous as a billiard player he is also closely wedded to painting. About a year ago Morninrgstar -was compelled to seek a more'congenial climate for his wife, who was in very poor health and lo cated In Arizona. This wonderful cue artist itf never happier than when at his easel. His real genius lies in the creation of landscapes in oil, and some of bis best works have received much favorable'comment at art exhibitions. Morningstar has never nsed his artiS' tic'ability as a source of revenue. He paints for the love of the work, and his pictures adorn the walls of the bofiSSi"of many of his friends to whom he bap "presented them. He may be said to belong to the modern school There is originality in his methods. During the summer of 1914 this ver satile gentleman made a number ol beautiful feketthes' along with those two celebrated artists, M. B. Leissei andRIchard SWartzwelder. Each suc ceeded in obtaining several excellent Ora Morningstar. subjects, which will undoubtedly in crease their fanfe as artists. It was by chance that Morningstar became a'billiard player. Early in life be obtained employment in the bil Hard ball of Maurice Daly in New York. Being thrown into such clo3e association with the game he devel oped an unusual ability with the cue and attracted wide attention in New York. He was soon recognized as cham-, pionship caliber, and more than once has htfd the 18.1 and 18.2 titles of the balklihe game. His open table play made him a master of the new style game of 14.1. Billiards is more of a reality to him I than art, although he loves art the more. PITEMSTING Penn Stats has a Nutt in ita wres clafts. Surest thing you know.

Mackensein, however, Ilindeiiburg rival for public affection at present, was only a name unt'il the summer of ltU.'i. and, despite his great reputation, is little more now. Countless streets all over Germany have been named after Hindenburg: statues already have been erected to him lie is weekly in receipt, of re quests to allow I lie use of his name in this or that connection. Mackensen, however, though certainly a rival of Hindenburg insofar as military achievements are concerned, is still far behind him when it comes to pop ular esteem or idolatry. Mackensen's pictures, however, are to be seen everywhere. They perhaps are responsible for an impression that seems to be almost universal that the field marshal is stern and unapproach able, whereas the opposite is l.he case. Scarcely any of his innate persona) characteristics e.xcopl that of unusual abiliiy seem to be depicted on his strenuous features. Cordial Delineations. When Mackensen began to tower above the other German army leaders, by his achievements against the Rus sians, and the Kaiser in frequent tel egraphic messages conferred honor after honor on him, it was a matter of surprise to Germans unfamiliar with Mackensen's career that a warm personal note should manifest itself which had been lacking in earlier messages to Hindenburg. The surprise came largely from the tact that the general ptjblic did not. and to a great, extent still does not, know how long-standing and cordial are the relations between the lOniper or and Mackensein. The latter, sur rendering the command of his Hody (iuard Hussars years ago, served for a long period as the Kaiser's personal adjutant, and in this position accomp anied his chief on the noted trip to the Holy Land. Few know, either, how narrowly Germany missed having Mackensen as a great military leader, lie is the Min of a man who in America would be rated as a gentleman farmer, and himself was trained to take his fath er's place. Though he emerged from the Francp-Prussian war as a reserve lieutenant, he immediately went back to civil life, in deference to his par ents' wishes. Ideal and Reality. For years lie resisted the impulse to go back into the army, and fought with himself a battle which his mosl enthusiastic biographer describes as conflict between ideal and reality. His university education, belated because of the war witn France, was almost concluded, and he was fast becoming in theory at least a farmer when tho opportunity to go back as a line oili eer into the "Death's Head Hussar" regiment with which he had served in France arrived once more, and his father reluctantly withdrew his ob jections to this career. A number of characteristics posses Mackensen Rival of Hindenburg in Affection of German People if: I'V 1 imuut'' ,i .' 1 The Wftfamt-Pkneled sed by Mackensen stand out promi nently, and have stood out ever since he joined the Second Hody Guard Hussars on May l.'J, 1S73. Some of them obviously have contributed to his military success ohtres belong to those peculiarities which successful men in general have. In the former category comes, first, of all. an astonishing memory which enables him often times to direct op erations without the aid of a map, provided a course that lie has at some earlier time studied the territory in question, incidentally it might be re marked that lie generally lias done the studying, for he is a prodigious worker at all times. Memory For Faces. Mackensen rarely forgets a name or a face, and years after meeting junior oflicers astonishes them by calling them by name when meeting them again. Few know- it, but Mackensen rivals Hindenburg in his intimate knowledge of his native land, and has traveled and studied so extensively that he instantly recognizes any given place from its physical characteris tics. -44 Contrary to genera! belief, Macken sen is the best sort of a comrade, and lacks the repelling sternness with which lesser men barricade them silves. Off and on since ISTti he has been connected with the Death's Head Hussars, and today is their general a la suite. No officer lias ever been more popular, and few more approach able. There are countless cases on record of financial and other aid that lie had rendered, though not a man of wealth, to alien of his company, bri gade or regiment. Mackensen's early (raining on a farm or country estate instilled in him a love of the open and for hunt ing that have always stayed by him. Though almost t7 years old lie has never been ill a day and is so strenu ous a worker that his younger oflicers often have hard work in keeping up lo the pace that he sets. His principal aversion is Hie shirk er, including the man who, though not actually dodging work, likes to take things easy and perhaps over indulge in the creature comforts of life. The officer on his staff who is too prone to laze over his after-dinner cigar or liquor has not an easy time of it. Mackensen himself does not smoke, because, according to report, of an oc currence in the Franco-i russian war. He was at the time a non-commission ed officer in one ofthe famous Tilack Hussar regiments, and was entrusted with important communications that had to he carried to a neighboring staff.

Another anecdote of MackonsonV. early career is equally characteiistic of the determination and the chivalry which his intimates know so well. He was a student at 'he Fniversity of Halle, and the leader of his "set." lie and his fellow students came to know a talented young actress and her mother, and learned from the latter that the daughter was severely handi capped by the chicanery of the theater manager, who not only repressed her every effort to advance but insulted and bothered her as well. Is a Diplomat. Tnstead of making the matter a per sonal issue between himself and the manager, as most other hot-blooded young students might have done, Mac kensen was far more diplomatic. He assembled the entire stydent body which, flower-laden, went to the theater and overwhelmed the actyess with applause and bouquets. There ensued so much favorable publicity that the manager had to recede from his position and give the actress the opportunity she had sought. Hardly an ex-comrade of Macken sen but c?n testifv to some personal act of kindness, some help in an emer gency that the latter has rendered. It is ]IPSP seldom-told (stories of officers which the public liQrdlv ever hears lhat most of all dispel the impression that the field marshal! is stern and forbidding and unanproachable.
