The Program This Year Will
Be the Best in Years.—
Program for the First Af
ternoon and Evening.
Unless the people of Concord stir
from the apathy into which they seem
to have fallen in regard to the Chau
tauqua which begins playing here tomor
row afternoon, the men who liave signed
their names as guarantors will be forced
to dig -down into their pockets and make
up the deficit, is the opinion of members
of the Woman’s Club who have been
conducting the sale of tickets during the
past few days.
Large numbers of people expected to
take tiekets for the performances, have
declared that they are planning to go but
that they do not wish to purchase a sea
son ticket, preferring to pay for the sep
arate numbers they attend, say the can
Although they have pointed out that
the season ticket means a saving of mon
ey and the possibility of getting to see
niore of the attractions, many people still
insist that they would rather not take
the $2.50 ticket.
Miss Janie Klutz, president of the
Woman’s Club, stated this morning that
they were going to redouble their efforts
to go over the top in the matter of tick
ets and made an appeal to the people of
Concord to back the Club in its effort to
bring in a worthwhile amusement. “The
Woman's Club is not willing.” she said,
“to see the public spirited men who have
backed us in this matter, lose money and
have to go into their pockets to pay for
the Chautauqua. I believe that if the
people understood that money they pay
at the door when they go in does not help
the guarantors, they would be willing to
assist by purchasing season tickets. Three
of the evening performances, paid as 'the
door,’ will equal the amount of money
pa 14 foe the season ticket.”
T*he average cost of a performance,
when a season ticket has been purchased,
is around 16 cents. Miss Kluttz added.
Mr. Kockwood. who pleased last year’s
Chautauqua audiences with his excellent
work as platform manager, will return
this year. There has been much enthus
iasm over this announcement since Mr.
Kockwood was one of the most popular
managers that has ever been in Concord.
The program this year is one of the
best in years, say persons who have seen
it. and the Woman's Club is hoing to be
able to complete the sale of tickets today
