Only One Recital to Be- Given at Heilig Theater San Diego Paper

donna of the Metropolitan Opera
company, whose phenomenal
voice and marvelous vocal adaptabil

unique in the musical world, will soon
be a Portland visitor. Her many ap

March 17 eaid:
"Again stage space
for the overflow audience last night
at the Spreckels theater, when JIme.
Frances Alda, a favorite star of the
Metropolitan Grand Opera company,
sang as an artist event of the Am
phlon course. -
"Alda was a thoroughly rounded
artistic treat from the -first note to
the final encore, both as to the lovely
quality of her voice and the charming
stage picture she presented a beau
tiful woman, gorgeously gowned. The
famous artist stngs with the fresh
ness and finish of a voice 'in its
prime. She possesses the rare combi
nation of dramatic and coloratura'
qualities. With a perfect thrill and
the liquid flexibility of the high so-
. prano cadenza, she turns with ease
to the sweeping bigness and dramatic
intensity of great operatic arias. The
eilvery purity and bell-like tone of
TUB following hand, which has re
cently been brought to my notice,
is In many ways , unusual, . it
lending itself to a variety of treat
ments, both as regards bids and play.
'It. was played in duplicate In an

Z. tho dealer, bid no trumps, as at
the score seemed entirely justifiable
despite the fact of the singleton ace
of hearts and the eingly guarded king
of spades, as well as the further fact
of the hand containing -an unusually
strong diamond sui. At some of the
tables, indeed, diamonds were bid on
the theory, that with six diamonds
to the tierce major, ace. king and
queen, a sure trick in hearts and a
sure trick in spades, game should be
as readily secured at diamonds if the
partner could give any help, as the
no trump, and without the contingent
With diamonds the trump, ttfe deal

the only tricks seemingly which
could make against him' were the
ace of pades and the ace and king
of clubs, and there was no reason
why one or more of these cards
should not be held by the partner.
There was the chance, to be sure,
that the jack of diamonds three times
was with one of the 'adversaries,
which if so would likely give them
four tricks, but it was a remote
chance and seemed hardly worthcon
sidering, though in reality it proved
to be the case.
However, at the tables where the
dealer bid no trumps the second
ptayer after slisrht hesitation bid "two
no trumps." Had he been the Initial
bidder he would undoubtedly have
made this bid though he would have

a land which bids fair to become
famous as a producer of great voices.
'The programme was arranged ad
mirably to bring out the versatility
of the singer, opening with a group
of classic numbers, followed by a sec
ond group of the modern French,
Italian and Russian composers. . In
the third group she gave a glimpse
of what she is in opera, singing the
aria from . 'Mefistofeles,' by Bolto.
For the first of the two encores this
number brought forth, Alda gave a
wonderful rendition of the famous
aria from 'Mme. Butterfly.' Nearly
all oi the many encores during the
evening were, however, of the lighter
modern lyrics, and included one of the
popular negro 'spirituals.'
"The final group of songs for the
evening was from modern composers,
in English. Two of these she re
peated, one. 'The Singer. having
been written for and dedicated to
Mme. Alda, by its composer, Max

was the popular Indian melody,. ,Min

colored by tier beautiful vocal shad

partner might get a non-bidding
hand and the adversaries still go

e same, so, not having

went "two no trumps.
At nearly all the tables where this
was done Y, the dealer's partner,

a bid, in response to his partner's no
trump bid he would have bid "two
hearts." To- bid hearts after A's

however, Y in reality did bid "three
hearts," and as a result Z, the initial
bidder, later went to "three no
trumps" on the supposition that his
partner could take care of hearts.
Whatever Y may do in the case, B,
with eight spades in unbroken se

PORTLAND BOY AT UNIVERSITY OF OREGON WINS STATE
ORATORICAL CONTEST. V :. ..
RALPH HOKBER AKD GOLD MEDAL AWARDED H1M.;
Ralph Hoeber of Portland, representing the University of Oregon, Is
the winner of the gold medal award for first place in the old-line oratorio
cal contest held in Eugene March 18. The medal was presented by the
Intercollegiate Oratorical association of Oregon. Nine Oregon colleges were
represented by student orators in the contest.'
Mr. Hoeber's subject was 'The New Despotism." He was awarded first
place for composition and first place for delivery. The Judges who con
sidered composition were public-speak ing professors in the universities of
Washington, Texas and Illinois. Those judging delivery were Hugh Herd
man. Rev. A. M, Spangler-and Brude Giffen.
Mr. Hoeber is a graduate of the Lincoln high school of this city, where
he was captain of the debating earn which was sent to Los Arigeles and
won four dobutes in succession. He is a senior in the department of
his holding but one heart, albeit the
ace, rendered him doubtful concern
ing the desirability' of hearU as the
trump. ,. . s ' t , , .
At other tables Z shifted the bid
and called "four diamonds,'', if indeed
he had not made this bid at the start.
Regardless, however, of whether Z
went to "three no trumps", or bid
the diamond. A should . undoubtedly
raise' his partner's pade bid, his
holding, in fact, Justifying . carrying
the bid if need be as high as five.
While, especially if Y failed to bid
and B's spade bid is in. response, to
his no-trump bid, all that he know
definitely regarding his partner's
hand is that it contains five spades
to at least one honor, he .reasons
that with eight trumps between them
to four honors (his own .-band con
taining three) and hU rood cards in
othec suits, they should undoubtedly
make their contract, if not game.
A curious feature of the hand is
that whether It be -played t hearts
(wnich would be most unlikely), at
spades, at diamonds, at' Z's declara
tion of no trumps or at A's declara
tlon of no trumps not dne of the bids
will insure game. . The utmost the
hand is capable of is "four diamonds,"
and this score becomes possible only
when A, the player to lead, leads any
suit out ciuos.
Three odd ie the maximum score
if the hand be played at hearts; two
hearts and -two clubs would be bound
to- win- adversely. Three odd tricks
are also the most that could be made
at spades, as one spade, one heart
and two diamond tricks would be
won adversely. If B. therefore, played
the hand at "five spades" he would
fall down on - his contract by two
tricks and incur a penalty of 100 less
is, or sz. Played at diamonds, with
Z the declarer, the score, as stated,
will be four odd unless A, the player
to lead, makes absolutely the right
lead and then leads a-trump to de
stroy a ruff in the hand of dummy:
If played absolutely correctly on his
part declarer, as in the other cases
cited, win make but three odd.
Assuming the hand to be played at
daimonds, A finds himself with three
leads, all apparently good the ace of
spades, the king of hearts and the
king of clubs. Any lead, however, but
the; lead of -one of the commanding
clubs, followed by the other commanding-
club and then by a trump
(and not a small one, but Jack or 10),
will be to play directly into the de
clarer's hand and enable him to win
the additional trick. The-student may
ask if there is anything to guide him
in the situation or whether the choice
is purely a matter of luck. Against
a declared trump the best lead, it is
generally conceded, is from two touch
ing honors, as ace-king; king-queen:
queen-Jack, etc., and the higher the
honors the, better necess-ariy the lead.
There is, in fact, no better lead at a
declared trump than the combination
ace-king, as it gives one e look at the
dummy while one still holds the lead,
and one may then lead the other
command or adopt some other policy
ae the dummy hand may and often
does suggest. Such lead, to my way
of thinking, is often preferable to
the immediate lead of the suit the
partner may have indicated by a bid.
I do not necessarily mean ' that it
would be advisable at once to follow
with the other command, but after a
look at the dummy one is often in
better position to judge. If one makes
the lead of king and then leads the
partner's suit it enables the partnet
to read the leader with ace of the
suit and suggests his proper lead in
cases where it becomes, advisable for
the initial leader to again, lead his
suit, perhaps through . an honor In
the hand of the dummy.
In the hand given the lead of the
king of clubs, which held the) lead,
suggested the Importance of leading
a trump in order to destroy a ruff
in the dummy hand .in spades.- This
enabled the player to make bis ace
of spades, which otherwise he would
have been unable. to do. .Whether he
at once follow with the ace of clubs
and at the third- trick, lead the trump,
or whether he at once lead the trump
does not In this case especially mat
ter. As before stated, unless the
player lead one of his high trumps,
jack or 10, all his pains, however,
will go for nought and the declarer
will still make four odd tricks, for
whire the leader's ace, of spades will
hold good he will fail to take a trick
in the trump suit. This, of course,
he would be unable to foresee, but rre
should see that the lead pf one of
his high trumps will force a higher
one and leave his-remaining high one
in command, while the lead of one of
the small trumps could easily be won
with one slightly higher and his re
maining three trumps might fall to
the three commands. So. in this case,
also it is not really a nmtter of luck
as to which trump he should lead, but
the one sound and logical lead.
Should the player 'elect to lead the
ace of spades as. his first or blind
lead, it would be ruffed in the dummy
hand and declarer would win tour
tricks. Similarly should he lead the
king of hearts the declarer would win
with the ace and then lead the king
of spades, which A would cover with
ace and the dummy would ruff, so
there would not be a spade trick lost
in declarer's hand. So. again, the
declarer would win four by cards.
It is when the hand is played at the
no trump bid, however, either Z or A
being the declarer, that the oppor
tunity develops for the prettiest play
on the part of the adversary. By
means of absolutely correct play on
bis part, he is able to score just the
odd trick if playing at his own dec
laration or to defeat Z's no-trump
bid and hold him down to the book
onlv. The principle of the play is
precisely the same In both cases.
Assuming Z to have won the decla
ration at no trumps. A, having no good
long suit to lead, leads his kingr of
hearts which Z, perforce, wins.. Z
then has three rounds of diamonds,
supposing the suit to be established.
Upon finding that it is not, he still
takes another round to force the com
mand, and depending upon his re-

entry In spades to later get the lead
and make the two remaining dia
nronds. With the long hearts in the
dummy hand he knows that two
hearts only can be- made against
him. A, of course, wins the fourth
diamond round, and the hands now
look like this:
10 7 6 5 4

A finds himself in a difficult posi
tion, but as he knows the declarer to
be out of hearts and that, therefore,
It will be impossible for the dummy
to make the suit, he concludes it
better to lead his two commanding
hearts, rather than anything else, in
the hope, which ln reality proves -to
be' the case, that it will put the de
clarer to inconvenient discards. Z
first discards a club. Then, a the
discard of 'another club would leave
the suit unguarded and as he cannot
unguard the spades, he is forced to
throw one of his perfectly good dia
monds, thereby losing a sure trick. A
thus keeps him down to six tricks
only and he loses his contract..
It requires somewhat less skill on
A's part to do the correct thing when
he is playing against Z's declara
tion of no trumpe than when he is
playing at his own no-trump declara
tion, for in the one case he sees one
of tha adverse hands, and as it nap-
pens to be the long heart hand, he
gets valuable information therefrom.
In the other case he sees only his

being uncertain " as to whether or
not Y holds re-entry in clubs or
spades, hesitates 'in regard to giving
up the command of hearts and so es
tablishing the suit in l"s hand. After
a moment's hesitation, however, he
concludes this is till his best policy,
as it is the one. thing which insures
him seven tficks and.-positively guar
antees his not falling down more than
one trick on his bid. Accordingly,
therefore, he" again leads the two
commanding hearts. , .
Another peculiarity of 'this hand is
that a strong hand like Z's' cannot
make the odd. trick at no trumps and
a strong hand like A's cannot make
two odds at no trumps, while weak
hands like those held by Y and B
can make three odd tricks in hearts

of course, to the fact that as played
at no. trumps by either Z or A the
dummies give no help, while as played
at a trump by either Y or B, the
dummy hands are unusually strong.

The Instrument of the Immortals i-
IX the early days of the modem pianoforte, the
Steinwiy became and it his always remained
"the Instrument of the Immortals". Liszt,
greatest of all pianists, pronounced the Steinwsy
greatest of all pianos. Wagner, Rubinstein, Gounod
and their brilliant contemporaries were equally quick
to recognize and acclaim its pre-eminence.
Each year since those great beginnings, the Stein
way has strengthened and increased its prestige with
those who make and those who love great music.
One of the reasons for this is that the Steinwsy
has always been made under the personal direction
and the personal ownership of the Steinwsy family.
All the materials which go into a Steinwsy ate
available to the hole world but the genius which
transmutes them into Steinway Tone begins and
ends with Steinway.
To make a piano is one' thing to make a pisno
for the immortals is another.
' Paderewski, Hofmann, Rachmaninoff the Stein
way is their chosen instrument just as it was Liszt's.
Is there any wonder that the mere presence of a
Steinway in a home is a token, of musical authority
and distinction ?
