“King Of The Castles”
Anne Landsbury Beck, composer o
‘‘King of the Castles,” a high schoo
operetta, has just received word fron
the publishers that it is off the pres
and will be available this spring.
“King of the Castles” is a three-ac
fairy tale in which a double plot i
carried on. The two outstanding char
acters are the Wanderer and the Boy
The theme of the operetta, which i;
very beautiful, is that everyone buildi
nasties” of either sorrow
fi Anne Landsbury Beck, of the Uni
* versitv school of music, is well known
\ all over the United States as a com
poser of many beautiful operas. The
: great majority of them are for high
!' school, and college productions.
•! In so many of the operettas com
. posed lately there has been the presence
i of trite plots carrying absolntly no
i significance, and the absence of en
p joyable and beautiful music. Mrs.
beauty, conceit, hate or
selfishness, but that the
true castle and king* of
castles is happiness.
An interesting feature of
the operetta is that it sup
plants the old idea of the
usual love affair. It also
embraces a great deal of
comedy. The scenery is
exceedingly novel and at
tractive, and the many
lovely costumes and dances
add greatly to its beauty.
“King of thet Castles”
was produced by the Uni
versity high school two
years ago and was pre
sented at the Heilig the
ater. It was very success
ful, and since then, there
have been many requests
While in New York re
cently, Mrs. Beck sold the
operetta to Silver, Burdett company,
publishers of music text books. In a
letter Mrs. Beck received last week
from the publishers they said that
“King of the Castles” will render a
real service to supervisors in search
of excellent material for spring festi
Beck, unlike many of the composers,
first gets a worthwhile and significant
theme and never allows the plot to
become trite, and the musical score is
more than lovely. ]
“The Hour Hand,” one of her most'I
picturesque and effective operas, will
be presented on the campus next term
by members of the school of music.

Steinmetz, a Modern Prophet
Prophets play a dual role as revealors
in human history. They interpret and
give understanding of the deeper mean
ings of facts and events. They prediet,
on the basis of their interpretation, the
Frequently they are wrong in their
predictions. The Hebrew prophets were
rather more often wrong than right in
|heir future-telling, especially when they
predicted concrete and particular things.
But, instinctively, eveTy prophet faces j
toward the future in spirit. Yet the
true greatness of prophetic souls lies in
their gift of interpretation.
Now we have arising in our own time,:
that is, within the last century, a new '
school of prophets carrying the banner
of scientific idealism.
One of these, Charles P. Steinmetz,
expressed this type. His personality was
so interesting, the contrast between his
dwarfed body and his splendid mentality
so picturesque, the completeness of his
devotion to truth so strikingly apparent
and the results of his work so varied
and important, that ho appeals to us as
the typical scientific idealist.
Such men are bold and free and fil ed ^
with spiritual earnestness. They have!
been and are still attacked as destroyers
of faith. Are they such or are they
leading those who can follow toward a
new and loftier idea linn than humanity
has yet known t

All who seek a church in which Faith
is made to harmonize with Science, and
in which tolerance permits perfect free

to worship in this church.

acclaimed the biggest musical comedy hit seen here in years.
