NEW YORK EXTENDS EFFORTS IN PROVIDING
ENTERTAINMENT FOR FOREIGN COMMISSIONS
Marshal Joffre, Hero of Marne, Motif of Interesting Performance at Metropolitan Opera-House
of Gotham Families Enlist in Different Branches of Government Service.
BT GETTA R. WASSERMAN.
NEW YORK. May 19. (Special.)
For these last weeks of almost
constant excitement, during the
visits of the different foreign commis
sions to this city, and the ensuing af
termath of additional war-time activi
ties, which the enthusiasm of those
visits evoked, it has been difficult to
Individualize, as everything- has been
en masse: people, flowers, colors, en
tertainments, particularly the latter
so much so that it would have been
necessary to have wings to follow the
different members of the various com
missions in their flights about the city.
By far the most Interesting'of all of
these affairs though, was the confer
ring of the degree of doctor of laws
on four of the members of the French
and British delegations by Columbia
University, through Its president. Dr.
Nicholas Murray Butler, who on that
occasion, wore the scarlet gown of
Cambridge University, - out of defer
ence to the English visitors, and the
ribbon of the I egion of Honor, with
which the French government had pre
viously decorated him. Tens of thou
sands of people swarmed the campus of
the university, in an endeavor to see
and hear the speeches in which attempt
many of them failed, as the crowd was
too great for the standing capacity of
the square in front of the Library,
where the service was held.
Another marvejously interesting en
tertainment was. the grand gala per
formance at the Metropolitan Opera
House, in honor of the most loved of
any of the, visitors. Marshal Joffre. He
did not want to attend an affair for
which admittance had been charged,
and it was only after the most earnest
entreaties of Governor Whitman, under
whose auspices the entertainment had
been arranged, that he finally con
sented to appear. After arriving there,
though, the great general seemed more
profoundly touched than at any other
function he had graced with his pres
ence, and rightly so. for no greeting
could possibly .have been more spon
taneous and affecting than that which
the huge audience bestowed on him.
Boxes for this performance, which was
for the benefit of the Marshal's two
favorite war relief charities, sold at
$1000 apiece; seats In the orchestra at
$25. and the cheapest seat in the house,
in the top gallery, for $3. Programmes
were $1 each, so small wonder that the
receipts were nearly $100,000.
Miss Anna Case, who this year has
come into her own. as far as artistic
recognition is concerned, was the for
tunate one chosen from among all the
great singers vying for the honor of
singing "The Star-Spangled Banner"
at the dinner given by Henry C. Frick
to the members of the French Com
mission on the evening of their arrival
In this city.
The best answer to the accusation
that this would be a poor man's war
is found. In the list of names of men
of tremendous wealth and Influence
who are enlisting In the different
branches of the Government service.
Two . pf these, . Marshall - Field and U.
S. Grant IV.. have Joined as privates.
Vincent Astor was one of the first to
Join the Naval Militia and will proba

own yacht, which he has turned over

aide to the chief inspector of explos
ives. In- the Ordnance Department. Ell
hu Root. Jr.. is at the JfMattsburg
training camp, as Is also Joseph B.
Choate. Harold Vanderbllt Is attached
to the Scout Patrol service, and so are
C. Oliver Iselin and Griswold Lorillard.
Junius Spencer Morgan. Jr.. with the
Naval Coast Defense Reserve; so is
Junior Goldman, son of Henry Gold
man, the well-known banker and art
connoisseur, and . Ashley C. Hewitt,
great grandson of Peter Cooper, the
philanthropist. Theodore Roosevelt.
Jr.. is a Major at the Plattsburg train
ing camp, and thus it goes on through
a long list of well-known families, the
scions of which are surely proving that
they are actuated by motives of pa
triotism and not of personal ambition.
The First Presbyterian Church of
the City of New York is to have an
out-door pulpit, the first In this part
of the country. It Is to be located on
the west side of Fifth Avenue, be
tween Eleventh and Twelfth streets.
A big "Sacrifice Sale" Is to be held
at 15 and 17 East Fifty-ninth street
by a group of women Interested In the
war service work of the New York
State Suffrage Party. Clothes and
Jewels have been contributed by dif
ferent members. Including those on the
committee having the sale in charge.
They are Mrs. Philip Lydig, Mrs. Og
den Mills Reld. Mrs. Victor Morawetz.
Mrs. E. R. Straight. Mrs. John Blair
and Mrs. F. Louis Siade. Among the
articles contributed are a gold mesh
bag. by Mrs. Norman de R. White
house; a Callot gown that has never
been worn, by Mrs. Philip Lydig; a
diamond and ruby pin. which Mrs. John
Blair sacrifices for the cause, and a
number of very beautiful negligees,
which Miss Charlotte Delafield will do
without for Rie benefit of the fund.
A campaign against extreme and Im
modest dressing has been started, in
New Jersey, by the Federation of
Women's Clubs of that state. Twenty
thousand women belonging to the or
ganization have pledged their support
to the movement.
The last hill of the present season
at the Neighborhood Playhouse con
sists of a, group of short plays: "The
People." by Susan Glaspell; "A Night
at an Inn," by Lord Dunsany, and "A
Sunny Morning." translated from the
Spanish play, by S. and J.' Alvarez
Quintero. Greenwich Village Is to have Its own
"Little Theater" this coming dramatic
season, and the theater-going" public
of the metropolis Is awaiting the open
ing of It with pleasurable anticipa

ment of originality In whatever the
real Inhabitants of New York's Latin

If the popular tenor Is a prophet, toy

Miss Mary Antin (Mrs. Grabau) was
one of the speakers at the first of a
series of mass meetings given the past
week by the Women's Organizations
in a campaign for increased member
ship to co-operate with the American
Jewish Congress, to be held in Wash
ington. D. C. More than 500.000 -Jewish
women already are enrolled, with
Mrs. Joseph S. Kels as president. Oth

Henry JIadley. who fa well known on
the Pacific Coast, through his connec
tion with the San Francisco Symphony
Orchestra, and a like organization in
Seattle, has written an opera. "Aiora,'1
which will be produced by the Chi
cago Opera Company next season. An
other opera of Mr. Hadley's, based upon
Hichen's "Garden of Allah." has been
accepted by Campanlnl. manager of the
Chicago company, but will not be pro
duced until the year following.
Mrs. Donald Clark (Vlda Reed) has
at last been persuaded to resume her
dramatic work and will bo seen next
season, under the A. L. Weods manage
ment, in a dramatization of Arthur
Somers Roche's "Scrap of Paper,"?
which appeared in the Saturday Even
ing Post. The title of the play has not
as yet been fully decided, on. but It may
be produced under the name of "Thun
der." It Is- a melodrama, in which Rob-,
ert Milliard is to be featured. Mr,
Roche, the author, is an intimate friend
of the Clarkes and It was largely
through his personal persuasion that'
Mrs. Clark consented to return to the
stage. Mr. Clark, after a number of
years with the World in this city, has
severed his connection with that paper
and is now on the staff of the New
York American. Mrs. Clark expects
her mother, Mrs. Rose Coursen Reed.',
to visit her here this Summer and great
plans are being made for her enter

in a comparatively new field for
him. that of concert singer. For some
time past Mr. Zan has been singing.,
with marked success, in the opera
house of Prague, but since his return
to this country he has -decided in favor
of concert work, and In that capacity '

prominent among them one given by
Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Duveen at the Ho
