f W
Win Oakland Will Give a
Demonstration of How
Records Are Made
• "Will Oakland, who Is probably one
of the best known lyric tenors in
America, and who has made so many
phonograph records that his voice
could be heard in every city, town and
hamlet in the country at the same
time, will be on the program at the
Orpheum next week. Mr. Oakland
■will be the central figure in a quintet
of singers doing an act called "A
Night at the TMub."
Mr. Oakland's voice Is well known
in every home where the phonograph
has a place. He has put any number
• of ballads on records, and dealers in
these song and talk machines assert
that the records made by him are de
cidedly popular.
As a testimonial to Mr. Oakland,
the Orpheum management has re
quested that all owners of phono
graphs feature Mr. Oakland's records
during his visit to Harrisburg. A spe
cial phonograph day will take place on
Thursday, when, at 4.30 p. m., fol
