Charles Dillingham's Stupendous Mu
sical Production Coming to the
Tulane Theater.
Apparently one of their adventures
in New York caused more pleasure
to the committee of Chinese mer.
chants who were touring America
last year than their visit to "Chin
Even those members to whom Eng
lish was an unknown tongue nodded
and smiled and applauded as their
brethren of liguistic ability explained
the jokes to them. For the most part
though, they needed no explanations.,
so much of "Chin Chin" is made up
of sheer beauty of spectacle and
quick-moving divertisement.
Ivan Caryll, the gifted composer of
"Chin Chin." is well known here for
his charming music in "The Pink
Lady," "The Little Cafe" and other
light operas. By birth, .Mr. Caryll is
a Belgian, but a few years ago he
was naturalized, thus becoming an
ardent son of Uncle Sam.
Anne Caldwell, part author of the
book of "Chin Chin". is one of the
few women librettists in America.
She also wrote the librettes of "The
Lady of the Slipper" and when
Claudia Smiles"., It is interesting to
know that Anne Caldwell was once a
comedienne. hater she 'won poptt
larity with her songs, the lyrics of
which were by her husband, the late
James O'Dea.
The lyrics of the Chinese song, "Go
Gar Sig Gong-Jue", which is one of
Doyle and Dixon's biggest hits in
"Chin Chin", were written by Anne
Caldwell and James O'Dea in English
and were translated by a Chinese
gentlemen in Washington. The Eng
lish equivalent of the title is "The
High Cost of Living".
"Chin Chin" is a modern version
of the famous old Arabian Nights
tale of "Aladdin", or "The Wonderful
Lamp". The authors have taken all
kinds of liberties with the original
story, but upon its foundation they
have built an up-to-date extravaganza
with bewilderingly amusing adjuncts.
Doyle and Dixon in this funny
fantasy have become a couple of
Chinamen who have more lo less
thrilling adventures in the pursuit of
the Lamp which brought its posses
sor all manner of -happiness.
For three years the playgoers of
the Tulane Theatre have been wait.
ing for Charles Dillingham's gigantic
production of '"hin Chin" and now
the announcement is made that this
famous organization with Doyle and
Dixon in the lead will appear at The
Tulane Theatre for one week 'begin

School Notes
The children of the Adolph Meyer
School entered into the true spirit of
Thanksgiving and on Wednesday
morning, when the bell was rung, ev
ery face beamed with the pleasure
and happiness that comes from help
ing those who are in need.
It was a beautiful sight to see them
laden with bags and packages of
fruits and edibles provided by their
generous parents. Baskets, filled with
all kinds of good things, were sent
to the deserving people in the school
district. The gratitude expressed by
each one, as the basket was left was
a sufficient reward to the donors.

ginldg, as far as most people ma
concerned, is a lost art. Thousands ag
tend operas, recitals and musical aoo
's, but, as for singing themselve4
tformally at their work or play, theg
have forgotten how. In times past
people of all ranks sang together ao
a matter of course. Sailors sang at
their work; peasants, shepherds, cow"
boys. all had their favorite and appro
priate songs. The songs of children at
games, the lullabies of mothers, are
in the collected ballads and folklore
of many peoples.
"The pastimes and labors of the haus
bandman and the shepherd," says An.
drew lang, according to the Indianapo.
Us News, "were long ago a kind of
natural opera. Each task had its
own song; planting, seeding, harvest
Ing, burial, all had their appropelats
ballads or dirges.
"The whole soul of the peasant clam
breathes In its burdens as the great
sea resounds tn the shell mast up ea
the shore."
Nowadays the whirl of machinery
makes all the noise. The workers In
mills might find It unsatistylng to saing
at their work, but It Is doubtful If they
would sing even it their voices could
be heard, while singing In an ofice or
store would pretty surely be stopped
by the "boas" or the police. Thousands
