PAGE FIVE. ! What Is Doing in Social, Club and Art Circles. ..'..- .. f Miss Elizabeth R. Thomas To even the close friends of Miss Mary Kaufman -her fine work in the j part of 0Prtscilla the leading role in the opera of that name to be giv en shortly, will prove a revelation and a delightful surprise. This en thusiastic and talented singer has been working for some time under Mr. Edward Taylor, who is producing the opera and her progress and de velopment is marked. When the time comes for the opera to be given. Miss Kaufman will be so per fect and clever in her part that her work will go far to bring success to the production. Her scenes with Al den and Standish are immense. June 1 and 2 are the dates set for this great performance. ' J J Mr. Hans Schroeder of Chicago the celebrated baritone who assisted in a recital given in thid city recently, made a veryfavorable impression last evening in Indianapolis when he sang at the Robert Park Choral society in its production of Gounod's mass in honor of 8t. Cecelia at the Roberts Park M. E. church. The Star says that "he Is gifted with a remarkably poised voice, admirably suited to such compositions as thoee of Schubert, Schumann and Brahms, which were among his selections last night." The Choral society's singing of Gou nod's mass was thoroughly . pleasing in most respects. The , composition was weakened noticeably 'by the sub stitution of English for the original Latin, for which the music was writ ten, a substitution' that made impos sible the shades of expression in cer tain portions of the mass that are given in Its true form. The chorus evidenced conscientious effort at per fecting the composition, however, and ine result was one 01 compliment Dotn to the chorus and 'to Edward Taylor, the director. Mr. Taylor is directing the opera "Priscilla" which will be given in this cty June first and second under the auspices of the ladles auxiliary of the Y. M. C. A.

Just now the jungle is being heard from in more ways than one. The shops are showing Jungle scarf pins which are most attractive. They are lions and tigers mounted on baroque pearls and very lively looking monk eys and elephants with jeweled eyes. There are gayly colored tropical birds done in mosaics and enamel. While these may be only a' short-lived fad they are now the smart thing. Cuff links and cravat clasps of plain and frosted gold with initials in English block letters are a good choice for a boy. Strings of crystal beads are very attractive for a girl, and neck charms of aqua-marines and lapis lazuli pen dants hung on fine gold chains are sure to make some girl happy, js Jt J Mr. and Mrs. Wesley Coppock were delightfully surprised by their child ren and relatives at their home in Arba.

While. the main i points of the historic episode are adhered to, there is a great deal of interesting dialogue among the characters given. We are aid familiar with Priscilla and John Alden. Miles Standish, "the doughty captain," and Governor Bradford. In addition to these are the three "Mayflower Buds," friends of Priscilla, "Squanto," the reformed red man, and. on the comedy side. "Resig nation," the old maid, and "Hatebad Higgins," the vlllian of the opera. The story thus interwoven is full of Interest and fun. while the music throughout the opera Is-of a superior order. The orchestration to be used in the production adds materially to the effect. Mr. Taylor, under whose direction the opera will be given, has been unusually successful in this pro duction without exception. All lovers of music for its own sake, .aside from the benefit, will realize, in attending "Priscilla," the full value of their money and time. The opera will be given on Tuesday and Wednesday, June first and second at the Gennett theater and the tick ets are at popular prices, in the hands of the members of the company and the Ladies Auxiliary of the Y.

KICK REGISTERED ON SALARY AUTHORIZED Councilman Von Pein Objected To a Proposed Trespassing Ordinance Other Routine Matters. An ordinance fixing the duties and specifying the salary of the food in spector of the city was read at the council meeting last evening, but the matter was postponed until the next meeting, at which time its "side part ner," the milk ordinance, will be up for consideration. The ordinance outlines the duties of the inspector empowering him to vis it all dairies where the product is sotd in this city; to make recommendations as to improving the dairies and gives most stringent power, that of revoking a license when a dairyman fails to live up to the provisions of the ordinance.

Mr. Von Pein's strenuous objection was roada on the ground that the ordinance would not be enforced, for to make possible its enforcement the city would have to employ a large number of additional policemen to watch for violators of this one ordinance. He declared that he objected to ordinances which could not be enforced, saying that the city had too many on its books at the present time. Other counclt men were of different opinion and the ordinance suggested by tbe railroad, commission was referred to the ordi nance committee and tbe city attorney.
