Letter htfLvecjjJ&araie Price THEY'LL GO SHAVELESS TILL THEY WIN Ky LUCY JEAXXB PRICE. NEW YORK. Oct. With the an nouncement of the opening of the opera, each year I renew my vow to attend oftener and write more about It. When I asked Erneot Alxnlesa If he would go with me this sea son, he reri'Ied that ha never felt satisfied when he came away be cause he divided his time between trying- to follow the superb or chestration nd the marvelous voices, and got neither. There Is something' in that. The whole ef fect is overwhelming-. With the or chestra, the ballet, tn new sensa tions in singers, the tld favorites, the advanced scenic efact, and the audience, it is both an earfull and an eyefull. Mr. Catti-Csazta an nounces the opening- f jr November 13th. with Je.-.tza in "Vosoa." "The Rose Cavalier" Is to be revived in the opening- week and Chaliapln is to sing as well. Important new artists are lr.a Bourskaya, Edward Johnson, Edmund Ri.rkf, and Ar mand Tokatysn. The last Is an American tfnor. The plans call for several new prescnt.itions. "Shall Broadway bo renamed Easy street?" Posters in many colors make that query along: Broadway. The name, Progressives Civic League, appears on them. Twelve reasons are prlven why it should be fo named. Everything; is made easy on that street is the conclusion, I do not know what is behind it, but I do know that the easy ones always land thore. if one of them, emerged from tlie In ner office and said. "The man for this Job Is the man who wrote the bold, ' assertive, red-blooded signa ture on this application blank. Which one of you wrrte it? I can't read it." We are forgetting how to write. It !s because business has i adopted the writing machine and there Is no longe- a market for ad mirable penmanship. Not only does present day business not seek Bklll ful ptnmen, but in some cases it actually tries to avoid them. The applicant for a Job who writes a tedious, labored letter by hand is viewed with doubt. They think he would have ehown himself smarter if he had gone out and hired a pub lic stenographer to do it for him. Jack Harrod. left, and Jimmy Nippcrt, with their "defeat" whiskers. If Cincinnati university continues to have a poor ae&sor on th Cidiron the Cinci barbers will be out some dough. At least three mem re of the U. of G. team, afte suffering two defeats, pledged them-e-aives to go unshaven until the team should win. The three are Jack Harrod, jruard: Jimmy Nippert, center, and Robert Keith, halfback. Vfben the photo above was taken Harrod and Nippert had been two traxces (two weeks) without a shave. One day several candidates for a position with a large corporation wer sitting in the office waitinc to hear which one was to be chosen for the place. The employment mana "pr who had t een interviewing each Every one talks money depression here. There is & nice story Koins around told by Arthur Brisbane. It is about a young man in Vienna who Inherited one million kronen dur ing the war on the death of his father. He was considered very rich at that time, but decided to be fru gal and save his money. He there fore put it out at lnterebt and lived on the interest, leaving the bulk of the fortune to his heirs. The for tune of this very thrifty person ha shrunk to the value ot 15 and his annual Income is 50 cents. Brli ba.e says that It Is a tnit story. Now it sems to me that you might call that financial depression. Two of my favorite itage artists are to be cast in my favorite play by my favorite author. llargalo GUllmore, lato of 'He Who Oets Slapped," and Leslie Howard, late of "The Serpent's Tooth," axe to appear in A. A. mine's "Tho Ko mantlc Age." If that Isn't a whole some promise I am going to ffivo up the theater. 'There will be no trou bles for Mr. Thomas to untangle In that -omblnatton. The newest kind of "bootleggint," is in the feather industry. The present tariff act bans paradise fea thers, and trading in that com modity must hereafter be secret and illicit. Whatever comes In must be smuggled and secretly traded when put out. The plumes are no longer In the wtniows. But there are enough in town, and here and there women are beginning to whlspe that they know whero some may bo had. Still I don't suprpse the taste for paradise is so gneral as to rival the original form of bootlegging- Does your cook sing? Do you make that talent a qualification for her employment? I quote an ad re cently sen h?re. "Wanted A good pastry cook with lull resonant voice; contralto only need apply." I suppose the next step will be to have them dance in with the food. Our meals, which are already too much a serious performance of sus taining life, will become artistic moments in cur Uvea to be looked forward to three times a day.
