Mayor P. H. McCarthy delivered the main address end laid the cornerstone. A procession headed by a mounted escort of police, under the command of Sergeant Robert Coulter, and a band ami drum corps marched from Persia street and Mission road to the school Eite. Behind the band rode Mayor McCarthy and Supervisors Nelson, "Walsh and Minnehan In an automobile. Women of Woodcraft and Pathfinder camp of Woodmen of the World fol lowed. Then came members of Guada lupe and Twin Peaks parlor of the Na- Tive Sons and Daughters with their drum corp^. Several hundred members of the Green Valley. Silver Heights and Excelsior Improvement clnbs brought up the rear. Jojin A. Keefe. president of the Silver Heights club, acted as chairman of the day. He introduced Mayor McCarthy, who was greeted with a waving of fia^s by several hundred school chil dren, who also sang 'America." MAYOR'S ADDRESS In his address the mayor said: It affords me great pleasure to attend an occasion of this kind. No greater gift of esteem can be conferred upon a man than that of laying the cornerstone of a public institution; especially the corner stone of an American school. This school building is named after one of our greatest and most estimable of presidents — orte whose memory we revere. It was he who said to the British government that "the Monroe doctrine must be pre t-erved. or you of England will have a fight." I hope that this district will send forth many girls and boys who will be graduated from the universities in our state. The chance is before you, children. It is for you to rhoose your course and future. It is you. little boys and girls, who have a stronger claim on this build ing than any one else living in this district. It is you who will receive the most benefit from this Institu tion of learning. Your principal. Mrs. J. Paroline, i^ one of the best . in the city. Always bear in mind that you all have an interest in this building. One of the next most important things that the people of this dis trict need, is parks and play grounds. It is my idea that this section of the city should be pro vided with parks such as other dis tricts have. We hope to give to the ?* s «i on parks and playgrounds for enent of the children.

Certain it is, however, that no young playwright could have asked for a more enthusiastic reception or heartier appreciation. . Applause began for the opening chorus, "On the Old Gym Steps," which was replayed ever and aoon in snatches and which was whißtled and hummed as the audience left the house. Enthusiasm waxed stronger* as the comedy devel oped and at the end of the first act, the author was compelled to appear and make a speech. It was a delightfully boyish, ingenuous, embarrassed sort of an affair in which he thanked every one, told how good Hartman and the Princess people had been to him, how hard the company had all worked, how tired he was — and thanked every, one collectively all over again. ' De Leon Is a Californlan and a State university graduate of *06. He has put a great deal of his alma mater into this comedy, which is his initial effort in making plays, but the college need suffer no pangs thereat. MUSIC IS "CATCHY" \v It is a bright, amusing composition, clean and refined in every line and scene, full of the best sort of that peculiar. carefree humor known technically as "college," with an atmos-. phere of youth and gayety that' is in ITALIAN ART TO BE THEME OF A SAVANT Prof. H.

Speaking « of oratory, many : shallow remarks are, uttered* in a 1a 1 deep voice. THE SAN FRANCi:S.eX):'C:A,L;L'; fectious. The music is tuneful and "catchy" with good melody and swing. At the end of the first *act there Is a song in which the yells of some eight or nine colleges, are introduced, fol lowed by the entrance of frivolously clad young women In the colors of each institution. Harvard, Yale, Princeton and others appeared— even Stanford was allowed in— but finally De" Leon; who was leading the chorus, threw his hat on; the * floor, rolled up his sleeves, tossed back .his hair,- fell under the spell of strong emotion and you knew what was coming. He began- the fa miliar "Oski -wow wow" yell and Cali fornia's blue and gold bursjt on the stage. The house took it up and for a few minute's it was as good as a foot ball, game. Apart from this the comedy has other more virile and vital virtues. The prin cipal fault is one, which promises well for the future of the young writer. There is too much plot, for a musical comedy. It would make a good play with a well sustained interest, but it requires too much talk to workout the" series of events. This makes the sec- i ond act drag a bit. ,-\u25a0 . Cutting and pruning would be bene ficial in certain places and the situa tions need to be. hurried a trifle.. sleeves Seed pruxixg The choruses in the first and last acts are remarkably good as to dances and costumes, but the waltzing in the second lacks graqe and charm. - It is amateurish and uninteresting, al though/as I write this I have* a ,vlvld remembrance of the seven or eight encores demanded by the audience. If they change things do let them re model the sleeves of the senior girls' evening gowns — no one has worn 'their like for years— not even coeds, from the backwoods. ' De Leon has the" leading part as Bobby Short, the varsity yell leader, and. he can be described best, collo quially, as "the real thing." . Muggins - Davies is - Nellie^ Perkins, "who believes in" Bobby." Their love making delighted the audience, most of whom seemed to share the open secret that Miss Davies is really Mrs. De Leon and to enjoy, realism rather than play acting. Ferris Hartman has to thank De Leon for the most dignified, lovable character that I have seen him in dur ing the years of our stage acquaint ance. As Bismarck, the German Jani tor, who. proves to Tie a .professor in disguise, he has great opportunities to be amusing, and .to him go \u25a0 some of the best of the goodllnes. :. Robert Z. Leonard as Richard Tell man, popularly known as "Fat," is one of the hits of the play. ,'He lookß the part of the plump collegian _ to > perfec tion and he has any number of the foolish, funny little college v intona tions, tricks, and expressions which go toward furnishing the local color. A busy week for thebox offlceof the Princess is prophesied and -a rosy fu ture as a musical comedy writer for Walter de Leon. POPULAR YOUNG COUPLE WILL BE MARRIED Miss C. F. Ott to Become Bride of W.

Singer Gives the Best Interpretation of Violetta Since Tetrazzini WALTER ANTHONY 'Not sincg Tetrazzini died, a' robust Violetta has there •.been 1 ' a soprano to sing : the tubercular 'role of the Italian Camille in. "La Traviata" on a: local stage with beauty .comparable to * that with which Regina Vicarino presented the unhappy heroine of Verdi's great opera -yesterday afternoon. 'It is not only.Vicarino's best role, but it is better sungthan anybody. who has appeared in itherie in recent years; except Sembrich and lovely Louisa. , V » . Vlcarino's slender figure and.thln fea tures help the illusion of the plot along, but It is .to her" vocal powers that "she owes her high success. Contributing to the general -ensemble of effect • which the singer, obtainswith effortless means are a poetic conception of the needs of the role and a gracefulness of action which needs but a little -more repose to render quite perfect. ART BY THE DOLLAR If there had been.an Italian audience at the Garrick theater yesterday there would have been plaudits arid 'shouts and she would/ have been called "Diva!" As it was, she was. brought before the curtain interrupted many times in her lyricism :by a discreetly enthusi astic audience which should have been doubled Jn size. Perhaps if the seats cost twice' or thrice as much money as was .at -the box office, the 'ap plause " would -have been greater - so prone are we, in art, to gauge the merit of a singer by what it costs to hear HALF HOUR OF MUSIC IS: WELL ATTENDED Pianist and Vocalist Present Interesting Program / BERKELEY, ''' Sept. 1 8.— Despite somewhat threatening : weather, 'a large audience was. present at the half hour of music in the Greek Iheaterthis afternoon.

Meyers opened *the. program with Raff's "Trennung's; March";" then played a group of vthree-work3 com posed by himself, a barcarole, a ma zurka in D minor and an improvisa tion on "My Maryland."

Cullen Super sedes Father H. H. Wyman as Leader in San Fraadsco Rev. Thomas J. Cullen of Xew York has superseded Rev. H. H. , Wyman ** head of the Paullst fathers in San Francisco and pastor of St. Mary's church at California and Dupont Streets. Father Cullen preached hla first sermon in his new church yesterday morning. Father Wyman, who has been at tn» head of the Paulist fathers In this city for sixteen years, will continue with the church here as first assistant pas tor." Father Wyman came to San Fran cisco in 1594 with Rev. Father Brady, who founded the Paulist mission In this city.- Father Brady, died a few month^r afterward and Father. Wyman was ap pointed to his place. Up tq 1899 he served as superior and was then superseded by Rev. M. P- Smith, who was at the head of the mis sion for three years. Father Wyman in 19G2 again assumed direction of th» church: affairs and Doctor Smith be came his assistant. During the inter vening three years Father Wyman re mained with the church in this city. It is the custom of the Paulist fathers to change superiors every three year 3. However, because of the ta.cz that Father Wyman was one oC the founders of the mission in this city he has been retained as Its head. Several months ago he appealed to bo relieved of the responsibility of the San Fran cisco mission, which responsibility he has been shouldering for so long a time, and Father Cullen was appointed by Superior General -Rev.
