Evidently this city's 1917 Chautau-' ]ua will be on a larger scale than at iny time In the past. C. T. Colt, who las just arrived to aid the advertisng campaign is authority for the state-; nent that the program to be given; lere from June 21 to 27, Is by all odds he best balanced and most uniformly :xcellent program ever enjoyed here. That the Chautauqua is on an even irmer basis at this time than in times >f peace is shown by reports which lave been received from circuits in iperations in all parts of the country n recent weeks. From down south vhere the Chautiauquas began almost it the outset of the war, come some eports of fine attendance and unusual nterest. The same is true of Chautauiuas in the middle and far west. While President Wilson and bis associates n Washington are bending every efort to the mobilisation of the physical 'esources of the nation, an army of :rained platformists in the hundreds ind thousands of Chautauqua tents all iver the country are doing their best n mobilizing the mind of America. With the annual program only one week distant the local committee is ictive in the ticket campaign and will nake a strenuous effort to pack the jig tent at every performance. With ;he large number of headline attractions announced there seems little loubt that the public will be quick to lupport the program. One of the big musical events of the veek will be the light opera "Dorthy" presented In three acts by a company )f twenty-five people. J. K. Murray, Dlare Lane, Helen Guentner, tiowarai Pascal and others of note are Includ3d in the cast. The costuming and itage setting will be elaborate. Another headline attraction is Ralph Dunbar's company of famous White rluasars. Albert C. Sweet is the di.ecor of this nationally i<amed singing jand. The men appear brilliantly uniorined and in their programs, afterloon and evening, patriotic music will je a feature. Other features of the week Include he Ipllarney Girls; Edwin M. Whitley in an Interpretation of "Turn to he Right"; Mrs Ida C. Bailey Allen, lome econlmlcs expert; the Regnlera, n music and impersonations; Dr. N.
