Henrietta Crossman Sounds
Warning to Stage-Struck
CAUSES RUIN OF HUNDREDS
Pseudo Institutions Fatten on Ig
norant and Simple. Driv
ing Many to Suicide
That, in this country, there are In
numerable fake dramatic schools
which fatten upon ignorant and simple
stage-struck youth, causing the ruin
of hundreds and driving many to sui
cide, is the revelation made by Miss
Henrietta Crosman, the noted actress,
in an article In the August number of
Mfss Crosman, before exposing- the
methods of the pseudo and fake
"Inasmuch as I myself began on the
stage and not in a dramatic school, l
admit I am prejudiced in favor of real
stage work for a beginner. 1 believe
In going up in balloons td learn bal
looning; it may break your neck, but,
then, there is something actual, and
decisive even, in a broken neck. With
equal frankness, however, I will admit
that some of the best stars on the
American stage today came out of the
good dramatic schools in New York,
Chicago and Boston; and that, there
fore, a good word must be said for
Rome of these schools and their sys
"The trouble is, most candidates for
stage education are beginners; and the
Inevitable and pathetic quality of a
beginner is that he doesn't know any
thing about the subject threatened."
Intead of going on the stage, thou
sands of stage-struck youth are lured
to the- schools of made-to-order emo
tion and thus to shattered ambition.
"I have watched the operations of
these stage sycophants for years," says
Miss Crosman, "and am firmly of the
opinion that the great bulk of them —
ohvaya excepting the worthy few—are
undoubtedly pernicious in their influ
ence and are designed to take money
from the silly and ambitious but im
possible amateur. If the dramatic
schools encouraged only people who
had real talent, they would have very
few pupils, but I have yet to hear of
an applicant to a dramatic school
being refused on the ground that he
or she had no natural gifts."
Of the many cases of defeat which
Hiss Crosman cites, one of the most
pathetic is the following:
"Take the case of Molly "Daley nnd
what I will call the Horatio Oull Dra
matic academy. This Institution is a
type of many others. Mr. Horatio Gull
was a quack actor. Molly Daley was
easy prey for Gull because she had
talent, and his 'training' consisted in
letting her do the work she thought she
could do, whether or not she was suited
"Gull gave special performances by
hia pupils. Here would gather the
host iif admiring friends, relatives.
prospective pupils, and boosters.
Tims lie showed that he was actually
turning out 'actors' and 'actresses.'
The sympathy of the audience was
always with the performers, the plays
were therefore successful —and profit-j
able to Mr. Horatio Gull's pocket.
"Molly Daley shone In these slm
ple pieces. She played Nora in "The
Doll's House.' This was her last and
crowning effort. She went next to a
bis theater in Pan Francisco with her
little diploma and the conviction that
she was going to be a great success.
Fur several months she stayed around
the theater, doing extra work when
she could get it (which was seldom).
always encouraged and carried along
by the flattery of the managers.
"Finally, she saw she was being
fooled and came to New York: here
she went around to all th° agents and
managers, telling them she had grad
uated from the Gull srhi.nl. After
she had been for a year repeatedly
turner! down, a kind-hearted agent told
her that if she wanted to get an en
gagement it would lie wise to sup
press the fact that Bhe had ever been
to a dramatic school, particularly this
one. The rest of her history is the
usual Tenderloin story, taking any
work she could get because she was
desperate, and letting influi ntial men
do a? they liked with her."
Miss Crosman's words have th"
weight of long experience and wis
dom. She concludes her article with an
appeal every parent and stage-am
bitious young person should read.
"Girls," she says, "do you feel that
you must g'i on the stagi '.' Are you

IN U. S. DOMAIN
Department of Agriculture Will
Use Over 300.000.000
Tree Seeds This Year
PLANT PINE IN SAND HILLS
Make Liberal Allowance for Loss
in Nursery Stock and
[Special to The Herald]
WASHINGTON, D. C, July 30.—The
United States department of agricul
ture is using this year on the national
forests over ten tons of tree seed.
Most of this seed has already been
planted or sown. The rest will be
utilized later in the season, as favor
able conditions are presented.
It takes a great many tree seed to
make ten tons. Jack pine, the most
important tree for planting in the Ne
braska sand hills by the i'orest serv
ice, will average something like 126,000
to the pound. Of western yellow pine,
the tree most extensively planted
throughout the national forests as a
whole, 10,000 feed will make a pound.
Altogether the ten tons of seed to be
used this year represent perhaps 300,
--000,000 single seed.
NEED CHEAPER METHOD
If every seed could be depended on
to produce a young tree suitable for
planting, the result would be a supply
of nursery stock sufficient to plant
300,000 acres of land, but no such re
sult can be looked for because many
seed do not germinate. Most of the
seed will be sown, either broadcast or
in seed spots, or planted with a corn
planter, directly in the place whore
tho trees are to stand.
Even when nursery stock is raised a
liberal allowance must be made for
loss. In the first place, a consider
able percentage of the seed will be
found to be infertile. Of those which
germinate many will die before they
leave the nursery beds, and many
more will be lost in transplanting. If
from a pound of western yellow pine
seed that contains 10,000 individual
seeds, 4000 3-year-old transplants are
available for field planting, tile depart
ment of agriculture has obtained sat
There are now twenty-four national
forest nurseries with an annual pro
ductive capacity of over 5,000,000 seed
lings. But there are many millions of
old burns on the national forests which
are waiting to be restocked, and some
quicker and cheaper method than the
actual planting of nursery grown trees
is urgently needed. Therefore the for
esters are making experiments on a
large scale with different methods of
direct sowing and planting, and most
of the seed gathered last year was ob
tained for this use.
Broadcasting has already been found
to give good results in some regions.
It was first tried in the Black Hills of
South Dakota, with an encouraging
outcome. To broadcast an acre of land
with yellow pine about S pounds of seed
are used. One of the most formidable
drawbacks to this method is the extent
to which the seed may rt" consumed
by birds and rodents. If the season
happens to be one in which food for
these animals is scarce, the loss is very
heavy. The problem of control of ajii
mal pests, such as field mice, ground \
squirrels and gophers, which eat the
tree seeds, and also the further prob- !
lem of*preventing the depredations of I
rabbits, which are altogether too fond j
of the little trees themselves, whether
nursery transplants or field-grown |
seedlings, is receiving the attention of
the biological survey experts of the
department of agriculture.
FORESTERS GATHER SEED
In some localities the department has
to purchase seed, but most of.that used
is gathered by the forest service men
themselves. The cost of gathering has
varied for the different regions from 35
cents to $1 a pound. As a rule the
seed is collected in the fall months,
when most conifers ripen their seed.
Parties of three or four men ordinarily
work together. While lumbering is in
progress the collectors follow the saw
yers and take the cones directly from
the fallen trees. In standing timber,
the task is much more arduous. The
men must often climb tall pines and
pull the cones from the branches as
best they can. Where these are on the
extremities and beyond the reach of
the hand, pruning shears are used. The
cones are dropped to the ground and
then gathered into buckets and trans
ferred to sacks, in which they are car
ried to a central point for further treat
The extraction of the seeds is tedious
rather than difficult. In some cases
the cones are spread out upon sheets in I
the sun, when after a time they open
and the seeds drop out; in other capes
it is necessary to resort to artificial
heat.. This is applied by placing the
cones upon trays with screen bottoms
and raising the temperature of the
room to the proper degree. The cones
open, the winged seeds fall out, and
the seed is separated finally from wings
and dirt by a fanning mill. A good
many seeds have been removed from
the cone by hand, but this is a sore
trial to the fingers of the pickers and
an exceedingly slow process.

gain of almost $3,000,000 from the pre

was due to the large fees exacted by

Dr. Oppenheimer Urges Extensive
Purchases of Land in
BERLIN, July 30.—Instead of a Zi
onist congress there took place here
recently a Zionist conference, which
was largely attended by members of
the international executive, including
representatives not merely from the
j principal countries of Europe, but nlso
i from Palestine and the United Sttaes.
I The chief questions that occupied the
I conference were concerned with the
government of the organization and the
.settlement of various differences that
found expression at the Hamburg con
gress last December. Thanks to the
influence of Alexander Marmorek, who
has found fame in the field of raeteri
ology, a peaceful and gratifying result
was arrived at.
The conference unanimously agreed
that the central executive, which con
sists of President Wolffsohn (Cologne),
Prof. Otto Warburg (Berlin) and Herr
J. H. Kann (The Hague), should be
assisted in dealing wtih important
questions by advisory committee of
three members. It was also resolved
that the next international congress
should take pjace at the latest in the
summer of 1911, and that until then the
international executive (greater actions
committee) shouJd meet at least once
every four months. A series of pro
posals was also adopted for submission
to the next congress, the most impor
tant being the removal of the Zionist
central office from Cologne, where It
has been located the last five years, to
a larger Jewish center. Coupled with
this is a recommendation that the cen-
tral executive, which at present con
sists of three members, each living in
a different city, should comprise from
five to seven members, of whom at
least three should live in the city which
becomes the central office. An appli
