The ambition to become a grand opera
slnr tilled the Italian heart of Joe Caruio,

This was not unusual for Joe. It In

necessary prnctlco which will fit him for
the rolo of nn opera Idol. Tho ambition

Joe's nature In early bohood nnd has
never left him. It's nn ensy bet of dol
lars to doughnuts, In his opinion, that
one day his star will shine In the the

the other Caruso. It Is his nmbltlon to
eclipse his fnmous predecessor.
Unfortunately, Arthur F. Hecb, man
ager of the hotel, nnd his fellow waiters
do not shnro hit optimism ns to the ope

and from n man with whom tho Itev. II.

The non-Cplscopnl ministers nro now

prominent religious workers assert it
