The ceremony was performed In I he Christ Episcopal church and the actors, but now yon tell me these are supplied by the great literature of music. In Richard Wagner's music there is everything adaptable to any drama ever conceived. And I can Im agine nothing so suitable for a scene in a Pullman Sleeper than some of Bach's music. Take the music of 'Die WalkUre;' it applies itself wonderfully to the Interpretation of cowboy pic tures. And If you want music for love scenes, why don't you take the love motif from Tristan and Isolde? I think that eventually you will develop certain chief motifs taken from great composers that will become recogniz able in course of time by motion pic ture audiences." Frieda Hempel, star of the Metro politan Opera House, had spared enough time from her favorite game, Moi schel, to tell the Interviewer what she thought of the very latest step for ward in the motion picture industry. The Fraulein's fuzzy little dog yelping around suggested an Ideal musical syncopation for "The Call of the Wild," but a few pats from the diva and hts majesty ceased growling. "You see, Frauleln Hempel," explain ed the Interviewer, "The Paramount Pictures Corporation has taken one of the most important steps forward In the Industry. They have arranged with Schirmer, the music publisher, to se lect scores for their pictures, each film on their program to be accompanied by a complete bouu 1 book. In oth er words, In more than 2,000 mov ing picture theatres of America the audiences are going to hear night a ^ pr night selections from Mendels 8 °hn, Strauss, Wagner, Delibes, Saint Saens, \ Ictor Herbert—all the great composers, dead and living.

But how difficult It would be to find suitable music to describe the 'Mysterious Hand' or "Ehe Perils of Polly." I am mentioning ti tles that I have never seen, but which may sufficiently interpret my idea. "I can't understand why this impor tant question of the appropriate mu sic for tbe more pretentious motion productions has not before been seri ously considered. All the sentiment and duty of feeling in human nature Is most perfectly expressed in music. In fact, it is only Imperfectly express ed in stories and in drama. No, I do not even exempt auch a master play wright as Bardou, tbe great French author.

"Miss Hempel. what composer do you think has written the most adapta ble music for the motion picture plays?" "I suppose that Richard Wagner Is tbe only master who has applied literature to music," replied Miss Hempel. "It seems to me that In Wagner's music there is everythlngadaptable to any dra ma ever conceived. Of course the 'Wed ding March' of Lohengrin has become the recognized symbol, the world over, of every Joyous scene, or onjoyous for that matter, at the altar. That In it self is a new testimony of the uni versal appeal which Wagner has made to the sentiment of tbe world, upon its most vital subject—marriage.

AT THE CLOSE OF DAY. An old man sat at the close of day.

He tho ght of the maid with golden hair. Ho blushing rose was half as fair As his comely bride that day In June, When to the strains of a bridal tune, They stood and promised to love— alwty; Long, long ago, on a sweet June day.

He would scale the heights, attained by few: What though those heights were not attained, The hopes and aims with him remained.

I should like to suggest to motion picture producers that there Is no greater love theme ever written In music than the love motif of 'Tristan and Isolde.' It should become as universally inspiring and popular as his 'Wedding March.' It Is quite remarkable to realize how easily most of the music In Wagnerian opera can be applied to the moat thrilling of modern photoplays. "For Instance, the 'Ho, To, He!,' mu sic of the 'Walküre' with its stirring vitality of open air aDd god-like cour age, applies itself wonderfully to tbe interpretation of cow-boy pictures of those beautiful out-door scenes tasen in your western country, in the hills of California.

KALBES BROS. Opp. Post Office. After reading one G. Washington's 1 I ideas on preparedness, one can under- : stand why he took no chances of rais- 1 j ing a boy to W- a pacifist. j M 12 sal imagination of great genlns. He felt all things that were poasible human feeling. "You remember the wonderful mu sic written for 'Hans Sach' in Wag ner's Opera 'The Meistersingers.' have always thought that that music would apply itself to some of those home scenes J have witnessed In pho toplays, where the masterful philosophy of heart Is often shown In the charac ter of the father. Of course. In these modern stories that are put. before ua Tn the motion picture houses there perhaps a purpose beyond tbe mere suspense of story writing, but I was particularly impressed with the fact that In this production of 'Diplomacy' I enjoyed the poetic feeling In the play because of the Ideal music selected, which I had not felt when I saw the play produced abroad. You see, music will always idealize, and that Is some thing we can never get too much of. "Of course, when the ball-room scene came I lustlnctlvely expected to hear the 'Blue Danube Waltz' by Strauss, and when the wedding scene came of course I also expected to hear Wag ner's Wedding March. But I had nev er considered Mendelssohn as an in spiration to Intrigue. Yet I found the music selected foi that big scene in the play In Dora's apartment from 'Hebriden' by this composer was mar velously appropriate. So also was the serenade by Moszkovskl foi another moment, of Intrigue In the seen* be tween 'Baron Stein,' the villain, and 'Countess Zlzka The selection from 'Musette' by C. Saint-Saëns was ideal for tho symbolic vision of Dora. As I watched the progress of the play, with Its many opportunities for 1m provement over the mere theatrical production on the stage, I couldn't help wondering what the great Sardon would have thought of It himself. Sar dou, by the way. would have made wonderful scenario writer for moving pictures, wouldn't he?" "But, Miss Uempel, are there no pi "Ssrdou, Author of 'Diplomacy,' Wsuld Hava Mads a Wondorful Bcsnario Writer.» other composers whom you think adaptable to motion pictures?" "Why not? Take Bach's music, for Instance. I can imagine nothing so suitable for a scene in a Pullman sleep ing car than aama ot his fa rues. The I music of 'The Barber of Seville' would be excellent for thrilling situations. The music of Verdi's operas Is per haps too lyrical for the purposes of In terpretation of moving picture dramas. There must be substance and thought à * ; '1 I i "How Easily Wagnsrian Opera Can Ba Applied to Thrilling Phetoplaya / 1 to the music selected for s big dramat ic story, not only tunefulness and emo tion. "The trouble in this country has been, I am told, that it is almost Im possible to get pianists and organists to play good music In the average mo tion picture house, in Berlin and other European cities, so 1 understand, it is the custom for advanced pupils study ing in the musical conservatories to Lake orchestral positions In moving picture houses. In Berlin, it is essen tially important that the music must be good, aud that It be well played. The public taste demands that It seems to me, that there must be » great opening in this country for the large number of musical students to help out their musical education by playing In these moving picture houses in the evenings. And with carefully chosen scores, like Paramount's how charming—what an appeal to people who like music, as well as pictures it would be! "I firmly believe that music is a prime necessity for the future success of motion pictures, and that the more beautiful the music the deeper will be the under current of feeling stirred, and the more sincere will the audience believe the screen story they are watching, to be. I think eventually you will develop certain motifs taken from the great composera that will be come recognisable at once by motion picture audiences. For instance, Bay suggeetiOD is to make love motif of all love scenes tn be the one 1 bare cho sen from 'Tristan and Isolde.' Of course, I am a singer and my profes sion is music, but I do not believe that any human beings are fully nourished with the savor of ideality that la nec essary to perfect happiness, unless they bear and appreciate the flfceet music written."
