Mayor McCarthy Wields the
Trowel in the Presence of
Many Mission Residents

Sing Patriotic Songs Dur*
ing the Ceremonies
With stirring addresses, patriotic
tor.gs and waving of flags, the Cleve
land primary school at Persia and Mos
cow streets was officially dedicated yes
terday afternoon in .the presence of
several thousand persons. 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."
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.
The nayor then stepped forward and

The crying shame of San Fran
ciscans, an Englishman told me re
cently, lies in their lack of appreciation
of the native musical and literary ma
terial here and in the fact that Call
fornians must go east or abroad to win
just recognition. /
I do not know how many San Fran
ciscans were in the very good house at
the Princess yesterday afternoon to
great "Walter de Leon's new musical
comedy, "The Campus" — they might all
have been English — although about
half the audience looked to me as if
Berkeley college had moved over.
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.
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

Speaking « of oratory, many : shallow

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..

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
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

foolish, funny little college v intona
tions, tricks, and expressions which go
toward furnishing the local color.

Singer Gives the Best Interpretation of
Violetta Since Tetrazzini
'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.
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

It is the custom of the Paulist
fathers to change superiors every three

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

has been shouldering for so long a
time, and Father Cullen was appointed
by Superior General -Rev. John J.
