T a concert in Ocean Grove. N. J.,
Enrico Caruso, billed as "the
world's famous tenor," sang recently
before an audience of 12,000 people,
and won a big triumph. Many of his
solos were gems from grand opera.
But if is stated that the song with
which Caruso made the biggest hit
was George M. Cohan's patriotic con
tribution, "Over There," sung first by
Caruso in Italian, and then, for an en
core, in. English. Caruso's supporting
artistes were: Carolina White, soprano,
and Winston Wilkinson, violinist.

who in August, 1917, signed contracts
for the appearance in concert at speci
