Pearson Six Big Days of Chautauqua With a Big Day To Start! America's most popular quartet will begin the splendid program for 1924. Then comes Frank B. Pearson, Former Commissioner of Education of the State of Ohio, whose subject will be World Building. Dr. Pearson speaks with a keen sense of humor and persuasive eloquence. Your horizon will be enlarged and your ability to appreciate the rest of this great Chautauqua program will be increased by his lecture on the opening afternoon. In the evening a two hour program will be given by the National Male Quartet, which includes Charles Cox, comedian. They sing the best classics written for male voices. In addition to being a fine singing organization the members are all excellent entertainers. There is something doing every minute in their program with no intervals or intermissions, and the audience is kept in a constant state of expectancy. Charles Cox, the leader and comedian is funny not only in his singing of the lighter numbers, but in every motion and movement. Charles Cox Figure Figure Figure Figure 2nd Day Zedeler Symphonic Quintet Frank Dixon Redpath is trying to create a demand for better music and knows of no organization that will help so effectively as the Zedeler Symphonic Quintet. Nicolai Zedeler is the master artist and organizer. He comes from Stockholm, Sweden. Mr. Zedeler knows how to make good music interesting and the great success of his Symphonic Quintet proves that the American people appreciate his efforts. This organization includes a brilliant soprano soloist, Miss Helen Portune. The Zedeler Symphonic Quintet will give a complete program on the second afternoon and a prelude in the evening. Frank Dixon will speak on the second evening. He is pre-eminently a challenge lecturer. He aims to arouse. He smiles that he may heal. He destroys that he may build. His discussion of Lawlessness will be a searching inquiry into its causes and a prescription for its abatement. His face is always toward the rising sun. Figure Figure 3d Day Give and Take Dr. Tehyi Hsieh Edna White Trumpeters Figure Edna White will provide the music for the Third afternoon and evening. She is noted in concert, a Victor Record artist, and during the past year has been making a tour of the Keith's Vaudeville Circuit. She, with her young lady trumpeters, will give solos, quartets, and musical novelties. Dr. Tehyi Hsieh, known as The Teddy Roosevelt of China will speak on the Third afternoon. Subject— Awakened China. Dr. Hsieh is a volcanic speaker, using English with the most perfect enunciation. He comes of a powerful Chinese family and is one of the best educated Chinese in the world. His wit and humor are delightful and his grasp of world affairs and the relations and history of Nations and Peoples is amazing. Give and Take is a new comedy now running in the large cities. The action is fast and furious, the comedy lines continuous and the dialogue crisp and humorous, while tears lie, sometimes just under the laughter. Third evening. A complete New York cast. Figure Figure Figure 4th Day Ruth Bryan Owen Knight MacGregor Figure Few women have had such an interesting and brilliant career,— three years in Egypt and extended travels in India and the Far East; three years in the West Indies and three years in London. Her busy life has touched intimately the Peoples of many countries. During the war she was a nurse in Egypt and the Far East. When Jerusalem fell and the British Forces marched through the Holy City Mrs. Owen was there. Ruth Bryan Owen, wife of major Reginald Owen, M. C. (British Royal Engineers) and daughter of the American Commoner, William Jennings Bryan, will have as a subject on the Fourth Evening, Modern Arabian Knights. She is a charming speaker. Ever since Knight MacGregor appeared on the Redpath Chautauquas of New York and New England four years ago there has been an insistent demand for his return. He is now recognized as one of the great baritones. Though a native of Scotland he is now claimed by America. The concert part of this program will reach a grand climax when Knight MacGregor appears on the Fourth afternoon, assisted by Alice Raymond, violinist, and Edna Wallace, pianist. Figure Figure Figure 5th Day Chester M. Sanford Smilin' Through Figure Figure Mr. Sanford's subject, for the Fifth morning of Chautauqua, will be The Winning Spirit ; and for the afternoon Failures of the Misfits. Mr. Sanford's lectures should be worth to every community many times the cost of the entire Chautauqua. The purpose of his lectures is that young people may be guided in choosing their proper vocations. These lectures vitally concern every person. old and young. Mr. Sanford is a graduate of Cornell University, a text book author and an authority on vocational guidance. Miss Katharine LaSheck, contralto and actress, with other members of the Smilin' Through Company will furnish a concert prelude for the afternoon of Mr. Sanford's lecture. Figure Figure Smilin' Through is one of the sweetest stories ever told on the dramatic stage. Redpath has set a high standard for plays and this will be the most beautifully staged play ever presented on a Chautauqua platform. Quaint and unusual in its action it tells two delightful love stories. It deals with the always vital themes of youth, love, misunderstanding and a sadly misplaced desire for revenge. This production has been staged by Mr. Wm. J. Keighley, Director of the Redpath Dramatic Department in New York City. The east includes many well-known New York players including Jean Keighley who has had a long experience in this play as Kathleen, the personification of Irish wit and girlish charm. 6th Day Jess Pugh Musical Merry Makers Edward B. Reno Jess Pugh, the Joy Night Man, appears on the sixth evening of Chautauqua. He is the most original living humorist. His audiences do not laugh every minute, but are in one continuous uproar during his comedy selections. Jess Pugh is a master of dialects. His program of dramatic sketches, character delineations, stories and stunts will give you a treat that you will never forget. Figure Figure The Musical Merry Makers is a novelty musical organization just suited for the last afternoon and evening. They play most expressingly dreamy and enchanting music on the ukulele, steel guitar, banjo and mandolin. Kathryn Pulley, the feature artist of this company, plays the ukulele with a skin that is amazing, producing tones which resemble those of the violin and 'cello. Demonstrations in Artcraft will be continued for adults at Chautauqua this summer with three forenoons devoted to it. More advanced work will be taken up, such as basket weaving and wax work under the direction of expert demonstrators. Here we are again with the best children's entertainment ever! This time it is RENO, on the last afternoon. And how he does fool you! Do not make the mistake of saying this entertainment is only for the children. For thirty-five years Reno has created and found more tricks than all the average magicians combined learn in a life time. He has traveled in India, Syria and Egypt hunting for tricks.
