Did George Sylvester Vie reck and Edgar Allan Woolf steal from Arthur Stringer the story of “ The Vampire,” the psychologic drama which is running at the Hackett Theatre? Mr. Stringer says Mr. Viereck and Mr. Woolf did at least pilfer the story from a novel he once wrote if they did not exactly absohb his mentality in much the same manner as does the hero of the play absorb the thought waves of the geniuses with whom he comes in contact.  On the other hand Mr. Viereck and Mr. Woclf repudiate the suggestion of thought burglary, and declare that Mr. Stringer s ideas are really not worth absorbing. Mr. Stringer boldly*’makes his assertion as follows:   44  L wish to register a brief protest against the unauthorized use of my npnie as one of the honored guests at the  and the kangaroo. According to Mr. Stringer’s theory, I must be the vampire and Mr. Woolf the kangaroo, because he got away with it.  “ Mr. Stringer makes some remarks about the cave man part of the play. 1 know that that came to Mr. Woolf spontaneously, and the fact that both he and Mr. Stringer conceived the same thing seems to me to be a compliment to Mr. Stringer.  “ Mr. Stringer was invited to the matinée yesterday at my suggestion, and if his charges are correct I certainly had a nerve to invite him to sée a production of his own play. His charges are absolutely false, and-J challenge him to produce the evidence he speaks of.”  Mr. Woolf said:   41  The whole thing appears to me to be pathetically childish. Of course, there is no truth in the charges whatever. Jn fact, they are stupid and inane, and, to tell the truth, I never heard of Mr, Stringer until I was introduced to his v/ife at yesterday’s matinée.  f‘ Mr, Stringer’s remarks are unkind, impertinent, and unprofessional. If his work has been stolen he has his remedy in the courts.”  “WILHELM TELL’’GIVEN.  Actcrs at the New Germán Theatre  Warmly Welcomed.  WILHELM TELL, by Friedrich von Schiller. The New German Theatre.  * poets’ matinee ’ of a melodrama called  * Tl  /he Vampire,’ an effort toward which I feel I have already sufficiently contributed. This protest is based not alone on the fact that any author who elects to follow his calling in his own quiet way is naturally averse to participating in sensational and spectacular advertising tricks. It is based even more on the fact 1 tat nothing could induce me to sit through a second performance of a book adaptation so abortive and banal and stupid. And since its theme is the  4  absorptive power of true genius, I think it’s about time to point out, reluctant as I am to claim e\ en remote parentage *o such an ciloit. that In i!»<>:; mv novel, ‘The Silver Poppy, was published*, and that this novel contains some peculiarly interesting parallels to ‘ The Vampire.’ .    ...    ,   44  The book in question is the story of an author who stole fame/who appropriated the ideas of others and prospered on them, until the final discovery came about. Anv one who cares to turn to  4  The Silver Poppy ’ will see, from pages 199 to ”02, how the idea of the vampire seizing on and draining the vitality of its victim was there made use of by me. in fact I was so fond of that vampire idea that the novel, in its original form, bore the title of ’The Yellow Vampire. Mr. Viereck, in his later version of this story of fame-stealing, has gone so far as to change his ‘absorptive’ thief from a woman to a man and throw over the action his own pea-green light of psychiatry. But, strange to say, not only does the predominating idea remain the same, but even the name of the hero stands un-absorptivelv unaltered, and bits of dialogue such, for instance, as the cave-man talk 'over the teacups, is interestingly duplicated in both the novel and-the play I am moved to make this protest, not tha^ it can in anv way either defer ot hasten the end of such an effort as 1 he Vampire.’ but more because the novelist who tries to seek his own material and write in his own way occasionally gets tired of placing the part of rabbit to the predaceous and openly carnivorous dramatists of to-day,”  Mr. Stringer’s statement seemed to upset Mr Viereck considerably when it was 'shown* to him. Pacing the floor of ins Office, he said:    .  “Well, this is sensational to say the least. My play seems to act on imbeciles all over the country, and I get numerous letters everv day about it. I have never read or heard of this book Mr. Sti ingei mentions, and. from what I know of his poetry, I don't care to read it. I am really sorrv the charge is not true, because in that case it would be conclusive proof that my theory of thought absorption» is true. Even if I had absorbed ideas from works 1  of an inferior quality 1 still would feel justified in using them, but, unfortunately, I have not done anything of the kind. In fact, the theory of the absorptive powers of genius is not. new by anv means, and it has been ably treated by a number of writers. What, then, is remarkable about it if it should be true in my case, although I know it >s   n< ” As a result of these charges of Mr. Stringer’s I find myself in the curious position of writing about a human vampire while 1 am charged with being such a vampire myself. It is both amusing and uncanny’.  “ When I asked Richard Ee Gallienne at the matinee yesterday if lie believed iii the idea of the plav' he replied that he knew it was true because thè- plot of the plav bad been stolen from him. In treating this subject I have done what other writers have not done; that is I have made it psychic. My Vampire is the Overman of Nietzsche. He is justified in pilfering other men’s brains. It is a unique figure in the literature and drama of the world. I have taken the individual and made him stand for a type.   44  The idea of the play was my own and it was founded on a similar experience which I had myself.   u  I don’t deny that there are probably absorptive qualities in my mind, but I rio not have to go to minor poets like Mr. Stringer for my material. His statement appears to rne like a cheap scheme to advertise his apparently long forgotten and insignificant novel.   4 ‘ Edwin Markham spoke of the vam-piroo. or tht* peculiar animal loose in New Jersey, as a combination of the vampire  Hermann Gessler .

This music of Mendelssohn's is rather a riifekv undertaking for the Philharmonic in its present state of discipline. His chiseled phrases need the most perfect enunciation and the most finished ensemble. The opening allegro of the symphony, the overture, and tlie nocturne, all of which Mr. Safonoff took at a very rapid pace, were treated rather heavily, and there Iwas a good deal more of roughness and lack of precision than the music can well stand. To make up for this there was much of the freshness of spirit and buoyancy of rhythm that belong to it; and tlie* audience evidently enjoyed the opportunity of hearing again Mendelssohn’s finely and fastidiously wrought symphony; it has life and brilliancy and pleasing -  melodiousness which time and I neglect have not. robbed it of, even for  ears attuned to the things of to-day.  Miss Schnitzer, who first appeared in ! Now York two years ago. has gained • ripeness and finish in her playing. She ! views Schumann's concerto not as a piece  1  for the display of a virtuoso’s fleetness i and brilliancy, but as what it is. - poetically and romantically conceived music; and i in this spirit she played it. Her tone i sounded at times thin and shallow, but j she did her best to make It sing and to I reach the deeper level of Schumann’s heartfelt expression. Her technique is clear and expert, and her playing is rhythmically elastic. It was an agreeable performance and gave pleasure.

If you have built up a reputation advertising some specialty your reputation is right there, ready to help you in exploiting some other specialty, and this additional advantage costs you nothing.  Suppose, for instance, that the makers of Ivory Soap should  start to manufacture a bluing compound. They could introduce it into the homes of America for one-tenth the advertising cost which an unknown firm would have to bear. This is the way many large businesses have grown. It doesn't cost as much as you may think to get a national reputation—a reputation that will instantly win public favor for your goods.
