    Opinion about Bohemian Entertainment

    Today's English newspapers of Chicago are carrying a report on the appearance of the esteemed Bohemian artist "Klementina Kalasova" at Saturday's masquerade ball. They write as follows:- The Dramatic Club of the "Tel Jed Sokol" (Gymnastic Union Sokol) last Saturday night gave a masquerade ball in honor of Miss Kalasova of the Mapleson Opera Company. The lady is a Bohemian by birth; full of national pride she sought our her countrymen in our City. Because she did not locate them until the latter part of the week, she was forced to forego earlier plans for a concert and merely rendered a few selections of National Bohemian interest before a large and enthusiastic gathering.

    After innumerable encores, Miss Kalasova was formally thanked for her kindness and was presented with a beautiful floral bouquet.

    Then followed an informal reception, during which, those present, vied with one another for introductions to the guest of Honor. It was a very sociable affair and every one left fully satisfied.
