IN THE LAND OF PRESIDENTS By MILLICENT EASTER COLUMBUS , OHIO , Sept . 23 , 1920 . Monday afternoon and Monday night , Fritzi Scheff , like the good little sport that she is—worked in her street dress . Her baggage was sent to Chicago instead of Columbus , from Toledo where she played last week . With a pretty little speech of apology Fritzi went on in a one-piece blue serge dress with a chic little hat , explaining that she must either appear in street clothes or disappoint you , dear people . She cleaned up . Tuesday her baggage arrived and she has been wearing some dazzling clothes . Robert Ryder , the august editorial writer on the Ohio State Journal , has made Fritzi the object of two editorials , and the press in general has been most generous . She also endeared herself to Eric Robinson , the talented sculptor , who has invented a . process by which he can make a life-like bust of a subject in a very short time . Mlle Scheff posed for Mr . Robinson , and Broadway will soon se...

One especially of The New Bristol Theatre , Bristol , Conn . I , along with four other acts , opened the theatre with vaudeville again , September 19 th , after the many years Bristol has been without . The town has grown and is growing rapidly . Probably , when vaudeville was tried before the town was not ready for it ; But they have proved positively that they are ready for it now . Despite the fact that acts could not be presented at . their best , owing to the theatre being in a crude state—still under construction—the audience * received every .: act with wild enthusiasm . There was no difficulty in provoking laughter and applause , they responded like they bad found what they , had craved for ; which , along with the kind courtesy of the manager and staff , made it a jolly engagement ...

AN INVOCATION By EARLE REMINGTON HINES Lend me thy touch , I pray tliee , master dear , That I may make the . melody more clear ; Without thee , tho I play with passing skill , The simplest tune seems full of dis- ¦ cord still . I wish the power to waken , hearts of men , _ And , having once aroused them , then Strike minor chords so sweet , so soft and low , That tears , too long unshed , may start and flow . May dear old memories awaken as I play , And _ conscience , long asleep , resume its sway ; May faces long forgotten seem to smile , And say : Where hast thou tarried all this while ? Then lend thy touch , my master , for an hour , That I may teach the world thy magic power ; And , tho the hand that strikes the chords be mine , The glory , now and ever , shall be thine .
