NEW SOUTH MEMPHIS NEEDS BETTER SCHOOL Declaring their school was over crowded, that there was danger of fire, that heaWng and lighting facilities were Inadequate and their building was the most obsolete one In the county, clti tens of New riouth Memphis, Sixth civil district, want a new school. In a resolution baojilng the movement of Miss Chart W'illiams, school superin tendent. In her drive for $300,000, they ask for a 146,000 to $50,000 building. The meeting of the citizens was held at the schoolhouse on Feb. 13 and the resolution adopted handed to Miss Williams Wednesday. The committee appointed to draw up the resolution were Krnest Adams, chairman; George McSweyn, W. T. Holsgrafe, Gerald Marshall, Edward Foster, John Baflew, and have Just reported. The committee found that with a capacity of 120, the school was accom modating U0 pupils, with about 60 others being "farmed" out to other schools. They condemn the lack of fire escapes from the second floor, stating that In the event of fire, the children there would "no doubt be burned to death, as their only exit Is through a pine stairway of very light structure." Miss W'illiams will use this resolu tion as another weapon In her battle for the $300,000 bond issue for county schools, which is aside from the city board of education's drive for a $3,000. 000 bond Issue for city schools, Negro schools in the county are also said to be in a badly dilapidated state.

As a mailer or fact, me advance sale for this engagement has been heavier than for any similar at traction In many years. The operas selected for presentation In Memphis have been well chosen, for while they are all well known and have been heard times without number In the past, they are among the most pop ular and tuneful in the large list of operatic compositions. No more tuneful score was ever written by that sersatile composer, Verdi, thaa that of "Rigoletto." which will be given at the Lyric Thursday. It Is filled with musical gems and is to be presented in its complete form, with Creatore conducting. In the cast will be Lillian Gresham. Henrietta Wakefield and Mvira Arani, Salvatore Heiarettl, who will sing the part of the duke, Giorgio I'ullltl In the title role, Alfredo Valentl as fiparafuclle. Miss Gresham, of course, will be the Gilda. Others In Thursday's cast will Include Amelia Lamanl, Mario Scala, Giuseppe Monti and Carlo Paggl. The company includes a large chorus and an orchestra of 35 pieces. For Friday night Creatore will pre sent "Alda," with Louise Darclee, Ri cardo Martin, Jeanne Gordon and Greek Kvans in the four principal roles. "Lucia" will be sing at the Saturday matinee and "I- -,-llacct" and "Cav alleria RuMicanu' Saturday night HOROSCOPE New Lyric. A week of superfilm photoplay enter tainment Is in store for Memphis theater-goers as the result of successful ef forts made by the management of the New Lyric theater In' booking "The Heart of Humanity" for the Madison avenue playhouse. The attraction will be given Its first public presentation here Sunday afternoon with daily mati nees throughout the week. Pretty Doro thy Phillips has been cast In the lead ing role and Is supported by a large cast of excellence. The dominating theme of "Hearts of Humanity" is the poble sacrifice of a little wife who leaves the quiet of her own home to go to war-ridden Baieium and France as a Red Cross nurse. Her capture by the uermans, mere to find Krlc von Strang, her former sweetheart, a Prussian offi cer, her sacrifice and later her decora tion by the French government make "The Heart of Humanity" a Picture of vital Interest and gripping romance. Orpheum, Paraphrasing, some are born In vaudeville, some acquire vaudeville and some have vaudeville thrust upon them. To the latter classification belong the Misses Campbell Honey and Georgia two sweet sisters who are delighting Orpheumltes this week. In the begin ning, the Misses Campbell were two Washington society girls, reared in the lap of luxury, so to speak; girls whose every wish was fulfilled so far as the power of money was concerned. In the capital they were among the most pop ular of the younger set because of their charming personality and accomplish ments. Their friends delighted in be ing entertained by them. Their home was a center where Washington's best were went to gather. And then the great tragedy came. The Campbell fortune was swept away and the Misses Camp bell were faced with the reality of hav ing to earn their own living. A Gash . Loew's Lyceum. "Little Women," a plcturlzatlon In elaborate form of Louisa M. Alcott's famous story of four types of real girl hood, will be one of the several attrac tions offered on the new bill, which moves Into Loew's Lyceum Thursday afternoon for the remainder of tlte week. In the plcturlzatlon of Miss Al cott's famous story, all the original scenes described have been taken, in cluding the Alcott homestead and the home of Ralph Waldo Kmerson. Two big features will top the vaudevillepor tlon of the bill, these Including GYaee Carlisle and Jules Rorner in an artistic revun of musical selections and songs, snd Kddle Ross, the noted blackrace co median, late of Nell O'Brien's minstrels. Others on the bill .will Include Marie Walsh and Irving Edwards In musical oomedy bits and the Hlll-ACKerman team of comedy acrobats. MURFREESBORO AGAINST C00KEV1LLE GRAB The Murfreeshoro board of trade has Joined the Memphis Chamber of Com merce and the officials of the West Tnnnesuee Normal school In their pro test against the measure Introduced In the general assembly proposing a reiltstrlctliiK. on a percentage basis. of the gross school revenues of the state, The new protest is In behalf of the normal school situated at Mur freealioro, which would suffer, with the other normal schools, a Heavy loss in revenues by ' the redisricting bill which would have (he effect of reduo Ine the apportionment to normal schools from 13 per cent to 10 per cent of school revenues to add addi tional funds to Ihe support of the Ten nessee Polvtechnio Institute at Cooke- vllle. the little school with the big name. The Murfreesboro protest says In part: "Said measure as proposed is regard ed as wholly Inimical to the normal schools of the state, as now organised and conducted, and would, if enacted Into law. certainly diminish their effi ciency and otherwise embarrass and Impair them by withholding the neces sary and required funds to adequately maintain them and thus guarantee their continued progress among the best of the state's recognised and established Institutions of learning."
