.Little boys, preferably naught? ones,
rere Mark Twain's favorites. It Is proba
ble that If grandfathers had the privilege
of fhoostng their own grandchildren the
irreat American humorist would have sent
in an order like this:
Give me a devilish little brat, as near
a composite or Iluck Finn and Tom saw
yer as can be had. lie must be a genuine
boy, one guaranteed td hook school and
keep a dog."
Uut such orders are disregarded and fate
Is very contrary, and If Mark Twain were
alive today he'd probably be hard at work
Immortalizing a certain little girl recoB
tillable to all who know her as his only
grandchild, age not quite six.
' In nddltlon to being the granddaughter
of Samuel Clemens, Nina Gabrllowltsch has
tho' added distinction of having exceedingly
renowned parents. Osslp Gabrllowltsch,
Russian pianist. Is her father, and Clara
Clemens, contralto, Twain's only living
daughter, her mother.
Tho child bears theso weighty honors
with a qualntness and naivete that Is
wholly charming. "When I first saw her
he was playing out at Merlon on the
lawn of the Stokowskl homo. A pink-faced
German nurse stood In tho background
and what looked like a fuxzy white ball
of yarn lay at the child's feet This un
curled. Itself In a few minutes, however,
and slood revealed as "Lohengrin," an
Immaculately white pussy cat. Sounds of
muffled melody camo from within. "Tante
Olga," as the child calls Madame Olga
Bamarotl, whoso other name Is Mrs. Sto
kowskl, was practicing, but came out gra
ciously to assist In the business of the
"But, of course, Nlna-chen does not
know that she Is going to appear In the
paper," Mrs. Stokowskl told ma surrepti
tiously; "It wouldn't be good for her; sho's
been raised with Buch utter simplicity."
And so I ,was Introduced as a friend who
had dropped frbm nowhere 'and received
an ndorable little curtsey of welcome and
a friendly shake of a tiny hand. The
photographer came "to take a picture for
father and mother," who have1 been away
en a concert tour for some time and will
riot see Nina jjfci til next month, when they
go Into the homo they have taken In Haver
ford. Thus wo "lied" that a child's very
attractive unaffectedness might be pre
served. Mark 'Twain's grandchild Is a little elf of

Check System Proposed and
Earlier Academy Opening Arc
Called Impracticable
Many1 patrons of the Philadelphia Orches
tra who have endured somewhat lengthy
waits outside the Academy of Muslo to
gain admittance to the 28 cent seats In. the
amphitheater have expressed the belief that
mis apparent hardship could be eliminated,
The suggestion was made 'that a check
system could be adopted which would enable
those who came first to obtain checks for
seats and return later. It was also pointed
out by others that the doors could be
opened an hour earlier so that patrons of
this part of tho house may be Immediately
admitted on their arrival.
Arthur Judson, manager of the Orchestra,
said today that everything possible had
Decn aono in me nop of eliminating the
long wait.
If the check system were adopted, he said,
experlenco shows that the checks would fall
Into tho hands of speculators.
Checks to protect one's place In line were
not necessary, he contended, as the police
prevented late arrivals In tho tine from
crowding ahead of thoso there first, If the
entire gallery were reserved, Mr. Judson
said, this would simply transfer the long
lino to the office on Chestnut street, where
the tickets are sold.
IUgardlng the suggestion that the doors
could be opened an hour earlier, he said.
"This would simply mean that the line
would form earlier and the patrons would
have another long wait Inside. Further
more, this would be decidedly Inconvenient
for the working persons, who would un
doubtedly find .It Impossible to roach there
anywhere near the opening hour. We have
tried many ways of obviating the wait
which hnve been subsequently suggested
and find that our present plan Is the best.
"If any one can suggest a practical plan
which will eliminate the present wait and
prevent the tickets from falling- Into the
hands of speculators we would be very clad
to adopt It."

LUtlo Nina Gabrilowltsch and her hostess, Mine. Olga Samaroff, at
tacles that seem absurdly big on such a,
mlto. Sho was born In America, but taken
to Germany almost Immediately after her
birth. Until the outbreak of the war she
lived In Munich with her mother and father,
near the home which their frlonds, the
Stokowskis, maintain there. Dut because
he Is a Russian, Gabrllowltsch was arretted
for being tactless enough to live In Munich
when a world war was about to start. He
was Jailed for a day. obtained his release
and came post-haste with Mrs. Gabrllowltsch
and Nina to the land of the free and the
homo of the brave.
"And what are you going to be when
you grow up?" I asked the child.
Of course I expected her to say 'A
pianist like daddy," or "a singer like
mother," but Instead sho plumped out the
words as though sho had thought the mat
ter all out long ago:
"Why, I'm going to be a mother."
Frtma Donna of the Metropolitan Opera Company
"Lohengrin" got a hug that made him
wriggle disgustedly and bound away into
tho hedge. Nina, babbling excitedly In a
language part French, part German and
part English, went flying after him. Mrs.
Stokowskl's laughter rang after them.
"She Is the oualntlcst little girl," she
said; "she Is always coming out with sur
prises like thnt and I shall hate to have
to give her up when tho Gabrllowltches
come. But she caK't understand that there
Is work to be done. She hates Saturday
nights because then Mr. Stokowskl has to
go Into the city to conduct. She doesn't
understand that ho can't stay home ana
play lions with her. Sho has an extraordi
nary Imagination which ought to lead her
to do something big. At tho present time
she lives In a land nil her own, peopled'
with fairies and gnomes and animals."
When her parents come to llv at Haver
ford, Nina will get her first regular school
ing at the Miss Hartman's School In Merlon,
her mother having taught her up to this
time. In the meanwhile sho Is providing a
lot of fun for Philadelphia's Orchestra lead
er and his wife, thoy will tell you, they
having no children of their own.

with practice you can Increase tho number
of times that you can stretch and relax each

Another excellent stretching exercise Is
the following:
Stand erect and extend the arms straight

you possibly can, as If trying to reach on

at the sides and stretch again, repeating
the movement until the muscles feel tired.
Bear In mind that these exercises should
not be taken Immediately .after a meal.
An hour or itwo after breakfast or lunch
Is tho proper time for exercising. -
Regularity Is essential If you desire to
benefit from your effort to Increase your
height. A fixed time should be sot aside
for exercising each' day.
Do not expect to grow tall over night

"Chance to Work" Statement
BALTIMORE, Nov. 1. J, Frank Hanly
last night attacked Charles E. Hughes's
declaration that "A chance to work Is the
foundation of American life" as falling
short of the mark,
"A chance to work Is not enough," Hanly
declared. "There must also be capacity to
Accept the chance. A Job Is not enough.
There must be a man for the Job. And in a
struggle like that impending between this
country and Europe a man must be as big
as the Job. Hughes stands for the chance.
I stand for the chance plus the capacity to
meet It"
