Considering the sudden heat wave, the slug-

that tickled the boys wobhiv, and Befr cam ·

in for a welter of kicks, whirls and limb-

And when Tod followed this up with his

roughing of Betty all over the -tage, a la

Miner's burlesque, the boys just pounded their

beershakers sore. And wliat doesn't Ted do for

a laugh in the subsequent turn! He cavemans

It with the sister team, creates a big racket

and hanga for a surprising spell by his wrists

from a bar high over the stage. He also

]>erpetrated a burle-que disappearing illusion

that failed to strike much of a response from

the audience. In addition to that, Ted's olown-

'iig with the two ragamuffins seemed to be, for

the most part, a lot of good effort wasted. The

man and woman balletsters struck a husky

hand, while the sister toesters tripped them-

se'vcs also into a merry claptery.

Bob Hall extemporized himself Into gusty

waves of applause. His happy comments on

the acts that preceded him, particularly the

Healey hodge-podge, put the folks in an ad¬

miring mood, and his rhyming of current events

in song from suggestions flung at him by the

audience ss'ored as high as can be.

The Plckfords, with the juggling-acrohatic

novelty, "Fun in a Restaurant", collected a

smart band, while Booth and Nina, on the

closing, got a pleasing response with their

mixed bicycle and musical turn. Booth exe¬

cuted a neat series of cycle stunts, culminating

with a side hap up a steep staircase and a

rcnsational double drop. His partner rattled

the banjo for a stitF hand of appreciation.

Goss and Barrows garner-d some spattered

applause with their mild buffoonery' and still

more mild singing. Mlsg Barrows is a de¬

lightfully pretty wife with a more delightfully

sweet voice, and seems, because of these qnali-

ties, to bear the burden of making the turn

Burke, proved to be a clever affair, in which tliis actress from tlie legitimate stage was ably supported by Charles Laite and IT. h n Holcomb. Characters are married couple and woman friend of the wife. Hubby is quite oldwomanish in his constant de.--ire to keep the jights out and other expon-. s down. On new wearing apparel he ab.<olutcly draws the line. But in donating to charities, .as suggested and solicited by tlie friend of the family, he no longer has fisli-hook pockets. Thus at the conclusion of the action, at times obvious enough, we le.irn that both women have been working each oth* r s husbands fop char 'v donations, turning it over to each other to buy clotli. s.

Eddie Nelson, with Dolly and Policeman P.atrick Rafferty, kept the patrons in good humor continuously, all of his stuff hitting as tho the gis and s|).irkplugs couldn't possibly be improved. Once in a while he is reminilful of another comedian, yet his style and work is distinctive for all that. The vehicle runs smoothly, is fresh thruout ami more than funny. .Attractive girl doing straiglit for a fine comedian is an excellent combination, and "Dolly" does much handing out tlie powerful wallop the act hoMs. e.specially with her Oriental costunie and dance. Earlier in the offering Rafferty does his bit very well Unlike most comedians. Nelson's come.iy is always the big thing, while,he keeps his personality from constantly intruding.

An a<'t of Iio.v and git I, enaettyl le'for.- a

painted drop of pietnres<jue Ittiteh land'cai'e,

the vaudeville merits of which are 'l.ouldered

b.v the male member, who jiossesscs a rich

voice and a decided talent at yodeling. Were

'.t not for his aldlity to entertain, the offering

would be nil as vaudevill« fare, the girl

possessing little, if any, singing voice.

The act opens with lH>y in wooden shoes

and IlolUndisli raiment singing "While I

Whittle on Sly Little Wooden Shoe". Follow¬

ing a brief intercourse of what is supposed to

be latigh-getting lines the girl sings "Walk,

Jenny, Walk". WUh her partner coming on

to do a yodel specialty, the act takes a

sudden lift from the boring to the entertain¬

ing, with the result, when reviewed, that the

audience handclapped the singer into an encore.

The gags anent the decorations on the girl'.s

dress are raw. vulgar and highly suggestive

and ought to come out before the act proceeds

Reviewed Tuesday afternoon, June 24, at the Grand Opera House, New York. Style--Singing. Setting--In one. Time--Ten minutes.
Jack Stern Is a songwriter, author of "You Didn't Want Me Wl»en 1 Wanted You", a ballad, which has enjoyed but limited popu¬ larity. Stern cannot expect to get much farther as a vaudeville performer, .fudging from the cold reception he got at this bouse, where a routine of numbers of bis own composition flopped terribly. The first was a tune en¬ titled "There's More Music in a Grand Baby Than in a Baby Grand". In the rendition of this and other numbers Stern displayed i>f>or sliowmanship, delivery and vocal ability.
At the conclusion of his act Stern received very little applau-e. Tlis appearance was a bit against him also, being far from neat.

Boston. June I".'.--It Is not an exaggeration to call .lean Bedlni's "Peek-a-Boo" a genuine burlesque classic. Tbe enthusiastic packed house that attended the opening performance at the Gayety Theater last night n vdily pro¬ nounced it such. Indulgently overlooking firstnight irregularities, and captivated b.v the splendor of tlie setting* and co'iume-*. the d.ancing of the .Tazz-a-Ganza Girls, the antics of the com.dian-. the novelty numbers, the singing, the band m i-ic and the truly artistic touch that characterized everything from be¬ ginning to end, tbe audience acclaimed the production by far the best piece of burlesque en*ertjinmi n» ever brought to this town. Bedlnt. in a brief citrtaiu fpeecb. gracefully accepted the rompliment.
Alt ho the troupe of eigbteeu London musichall girls i* a Mg feature of tbe show, it is the font ensemble, rather than any single element, that makes "Pcek-a-Boo" a crackerjack affair. ENrery artiste is accompltshed and capahle, .-«* well as favorably cast. The comics spread eontinuoii* laughter with case, the singers render their numbers in pleasantly modulated style, the ensemble dancing ha* seldom had its equal in hiirli-sine, the various skits are iiniisiiatly intorestiiig and entertaining, the music thruoiit is of excellent «|uulity, the stage prcsvnits an attractive upivearance at all times .and there is evi-n somciiiing of a con¬ tinuity that holds the scene* together nicely. \lHVHt the only thing left wanting was a little m'vre solo dancing and pcrliap* a few additional song numbers.

this one full of go. il coiix ily material and

proved a riot. The sixth scene hrmight in a Ini' k dance liy

the J.tzz-a-Ganza Girls, several of whom were

given a chance to display their individual

ability. One thing about fl'i-e girl* is that

they work seriously and in earnest. Then- is

no listless stepping, no Ix.-red gazing and no

tarele-sness with them. Firfect teninwork i*

demon-trated in their cleverly conceived group

numbers, and in addition these Lumdon maids

are not at all bad to look at.

very realistic wliarf scene wa* next ex¬

hibited, with Willie Lander and Tommy Gordon

as a couple of longshorenen. William Carola as

captain, Ed Quigh-y as a Chinaman, Agnes

Dempsey as the vvoiiii.n. Nellie XeI«on as the

kid and Harry Petir-oii as the man from

nowhere. A hit of inlen -ting drams was

enacted here.

.Some entertaining hokum by Tom Gordon and

Mark Germain followed, .and then an elegantly stageil patriotic laMean cli-ed the first act.

Harold Stein's Band supplemented the Gayety

Tbe Blue Danube Dance, a most enchanting

the girls tripped lightly around It as tho

charming and accomplisl.i <1 toe dancer, did a

s'P«'cialt.v. It vvas an artistic achievement.

ceeded to a degree, and it might be suggested here and now, in consequence of some of the vulgarity in "Try It With Alice", that in case there is still room for more amendments to the Constitution one might be for the prohibition of plays which wallow in smut.
The action of Leiber's opus does not take place in a bedroom, and thus does not follow out the too often practlctsl theory that a farce is not a farce without swh a setting. Its locale is the bachelor quarters of Sara Ashton, who lb still happy in his celibacy, but whose fate will be the hoosegow provided he hasn't walked to the altar "by midnight". According to the twenty-fourth amendment, a draft Intard with a reserve of unshackled women will see to it that all men who haven't married by that time are conscripted into connubial warfare and wives selected for them.
The complications begin after Billy Kirk¬ wood. Sum's pal, in a frantic cudgeling of the brain for some avenue of escape from the dreaded marriage law. hits upon the plan of masipierading as a womin. He does a Julian Eltinge, dressing up in a costume which he bad disported himself in years back while assuming the role of a lassie in a college play. A clergyman is called in. and Billy and Sam, to all apiioarani es, get hooked up as man and wife,

realism to render the audience wholly unsiispei-t as to his true character until the dcnoncmeut., an Irish servant, was well handled b.y Charles Kennedy, and smaller parts were made the most cf by Bay Collins, Roy Walling. Gustave Kollaiul. Jobn Ray, John Roberts and Kenneth Lawton.
The stor.v of the play. wTiicli has to do with the theft of some valuable pi-arls, is interesting and made rather plau'ilde. The settings lare everytllillg they sliould be. Ill fact there is noHiing whatever tlic matter with the staging or tlie writing of the play. There is a grave discrepancy between the planning cf the cli.iracli r and it< exeetiHcn by Mr. Placknier unle-s I am greatly mi'tukc n. The sle w will stand or fall by bis interpretation, as it would for any otlnr actor who c-sayed tlie part. Tbe phty is noticing without this dual role; it is the be-ail and r-ud-al! of the show. To my way of thinking Mr. Blackmer do« s not begin to realize its possibilities, and, as a c'onsequence, the play is ratlier tame entertainment.
A novel melodrama, hurt by mis¬ casting of tbe principal role.

and XXIdle Iwr oiiiiortuniii-'s are not so great in "H r Wit Out" she gixes a truly beautiful reading ot the part. 1 liiixe s.-en f- 'v actresses so completely mistress of tlicir art. Miss Terry se<`ms to be continually in tbat balanced state of emotion, which, profxerly nnd-'r control, dis¬ tinguishes fine aeting. She pla.vs with the emotions as Ros.-uthal does with the keyboard of bis piano. There is the same flexibility of nttcrame, the same rxin»ciou» (irdcring of it. tbe same exqui.slte control. I wish there were more actresses who kn> w their craft quite so xxell as Miss Terry.

Then, too, Ertan l» missed. Hit atrlking x-olors were just what this show neoda. The s<-encry and costumes, xirhlle tasteful, are not e.xc-filling. On the other hand. I liked tinstaging of Julian Alltch--Il, which haa an air of gentility and quiet elegance which la <itlite charming.

IT IP the natural thing for a language to utilize Its own resources before draw¬

ing on other languages. The Anglo-Saxon principle of adopting only such wv>rds

as were ea-lly assimilated with the native v'.s'nt>ulary, for the most part names

of lencrete tilings, and of turning to the greatest po'sible account native words and

nsits. I s|Hii-ially for ahstrart notions--that principle may Iw* taken as a symptom

of a healthful vonditinn «f a language and a nation; witness Greek, where we have

the most tloiirishliig and vigorous growth of atistra.t and <ther scientifically service-

aide lernis on a native basis that the world has ever s.-.-n. and where the highest

ilevel<ii>raent vif liiielleefiial ard artistic activity went hand in hand with the most

extensive rreation of indigenons words and an extremely IlmltiKl importation of

words from abroad. It Is not, then, the Old English system of utilizing the ver-

naetilar v.f word-, but the modiTn system of iieglerting the native and borrowing

from a fonign v.sahiilary that has to be a*eoiinted for as something out of the

natural -tale of things. A particular case in point will Illustrate this better than

long I xplanatlun-;

To expre-' the Idea of a small book that is alwa.vs ready at li.xnd the Greeks

had d vl-ed the word "< gkheiriillon" from "en" `in', '·kheir" 'hand' and the suffix

'·-idii n" denoting sraalln* --: tlie Botiiaus similarly empb'ved their adjective "man-

li ills'' `IS rtain ng to manii-. the hai.d'. with "lils-r" 'IshiW' nmlerstovid. Wliat could

lie More natural th in for the .Viu-lieS.ixon.- to frime ac-ording to the gi-nius of their <wn langiiare tl. ..iniisuind '|ianill*oc"V Tliib naturally would bo especially applli-d

to the one kind · f 1 iind.v lH>oks that the elergy were in partlenliir nc-d of, the book

containing tin- is ii lonal and minor pnWic v.ftiees of the Ituman church. Similar

iximponnds wi re >.-· I. and are r.s. d. as a matter of course, in the other cognate

Ting ; .gi ' tb rman · i andbiieh", Ihiiii'h ''h.tnill'oe'', etc. But in the Middle English

p. riod 'handbis'' was disused, the Erem h tl.atlni ''manuar' taking Its place, and

in the slxtei-nth century the Greek wor.! tenehlridiont tisi vvi- iniriMlined into the

Ecgli-h language. .\s so accustom'd tin nation grown to preferring strange

and e'.otlc w. rds that when in the nineteenth century ''handfook" made its r*-

iippearanco It was treattd as ai^unweleouie intruder. Tlie oldest example of the

new Use In the New Engll'b I>ict oniry Is frv.m 1^14. when an anonymous book was

published with the title "A Handb<xik for Modeling TVax Elowers". In


in the p^ fa* e to a historical work wrote "'Vl'hjt the Germans would term and

for It, 'The Handbook of History' "--but he ilared not ii'C that title himself. Three

years !al*r Murray, the publisher, Tentured to i-all his guide book "A handbook

for on the Continent", but reviewers as late as I'tS apologized for copy¬

ing this eoln*>d w*>rd. In

Rogers sjeaks of the word as a tasteless 'unoTatlon.

··B'e might have N-en satisfied with `manual', and not pttt log*ther that Tery ngly

.xml xery nnnee*--ary word, `handbook', which is scarcely. I should suppose, ten or

fifteen Te.xrs old." Of late years the word seems to tiav.- found m'-re favor, but 1

cannot help thinking that stale of language a very nnna*nral one where sinli a

rery simple. Intelligible and expn-ssive word has to fight i»s w.iy instead of being

at on^e admit'ed to the rery best 80*iety.

The Old English lungnage, then, was rh h in possibiliH* s. and its speakers were

fortunate enough to p.>s'.-s a Iingtiag*' that might, with very little exertion on their part he made to exiin-s ·v* rything tint human -ii**'*'h can I**- eiilhd iijvon to expri-s.

There can la- no doul't that If the language hail 1" u left to itself it would I'a-ily

have r*'me>lied the dife.t- that O certainly had. for its nsoiirces were abundantly

-nffieiint to provide natural .md t xpre"ive terms *-ven for su> h a new world of con-

. * r..|e tilings and nlvelra*-t 1*1* as ns Cliri'lian'ty rieaiil to the .knglo-Saxoiis. It is

true we often find OW English pros*- clutu'.v and unwieldy, but that Is mon-

Gie fault of the litiratnre than **f the 1 .nguage li-elf. .V good prose st.vle is every

where a late avxiiiir* ment. and f'* work of a whole generation of author- 1'

needed to bring about ihe easy flow of written pro-e. Neither, perhaps, were the

Siibjnt trralid of In Ih*- .xiant OIil English prose literature those most (.iiitibl.-

for tbe developmmt of the highest literary qualities. But if we U*>k at such a

closely connevted language a- Old Norse we find in that language a rapid progress

to a narrative pro-e style whPh Is eyen now Justly admired in its numerous sagas;

and I do not see so gre.if a difference b*'tween the two hanenates as would Justify a

s<epllcl-m with regard to the p*-rfeetability of Old English In the same direction.

And Indeed, we have po-illve proof In a few passag*>s that the language had n*»

mean p. wer as a literary meilhim: I am thinking of Alf-ed s (reigned !»71-9V)1> report

Une minute his body Is lurching with brute strength, the next minute he Is a tyrant for [5^ voice, the next moment he Is cooing love of Juvenility with fare-comedy elaboration, the next minute he is pertly facetious. The motive for this variety does not come from the play. It comes from Mr. Anders' caprb-e. from sort of a hair-trigger respou-e to whatever deviltry jiops into bis mind. Now Mr. .Amlers frankly admits that he overacts. He doesn't seem at all proud of the fact. But that Is nut the first problem with Mr. Anders. He simply faces the problem that all per-ons face who are "impulsive". Mr. Anders neisls to get a steadier current of nervous energy, reason, emotional reason, and all other kinds of rea¬ son, running from his bruin to all parts of bis body. The api>earance freiiuently is that Mr ·Anders' body directs hi- brain instead of his brain directing his body. That is too tunl considering that Mr. .Anders has ab.lity. Some of his light comedy bag l>een promising, and R his Andy in "Hell R.-nt fer Ileuvcn" was a pretty thoro-going character.
"I'll Say She I-", with the Marx Rrotbera. is giving the same n*'vv impetus of musical comedy on Broadway that W. C. Fields gave, and Is still giving, to "I'oppy''. This nt w impetus is really a revival of the old eommedia dell'arte made famous by the Italian come¬ dians of this sthool 300 year- ago. It flour¬ ished for Centuries. Its out-tamling fcatar* a are "improvis.<I comedy", Inclucling ail kind.x of tricks and feat', i>ersonal a-'·oniplislimentx and excellence in pantomime. Mr I'.* Ids came along with the pantomime, the cimi*' silence, the vocalization and stunts of t!.. obi i-omcdy and played a part in a plot wifii adroitness of characterization. Now tiie Marx Brothers come along--a tr*>ui><` <>f impr*>vis*r-- whole repertory of eomnodia cl* H art*' fi in the loosely »s>nn**' te*! "ep's.«I. -" o Say She Is" they hav- an endli s» c; pantomimic skill, biiffo'nrry and c eharaoterizatloii of the ol.i and n* gl* i t*'<i It Is because the impi ri-lial'ic art--and it is an art--of absurdity ha- I>een negl*'il*'d that U now delights us as something new. This art is not "personality", the modern -logan in vaudeville and mii«ii-al comedy. It - tlie suie press'on and di-appearanoe of "isr-onality" for the purpose of creating a i-omie conception of the imagination. The skill, finish, an'l breadth of the creation, and its originality, is the sei'ret of it.s force.
I sometimes wonder vviiy pantomime seem.i to be so closely related tn th*- spok*n word. But the conne<'tion is a close one if one i.v psychologist and brain specialist inouuh to g*>

enabled ns to maintain oar reputation as « aiyte reporter, however, by wearing several gowns of notable charm. Mils Terry, star of the play, made her first appearance in a griccfill wbite-sllk crepe gown, of that shade of white which one sees In portraits by oM masters, designated as oyster while. The fis'Bt of the skirt was draped diagonally over an underskirt of black aatin. The low waistline was defined with a half belt of black satin from hack to hips, which appeared to he Ins. t Several targe flowers In varying shades ef yellow were posed on the waUtUne at the left front. Thif gown was of the sleeveleso variety with softly rounded neck. A tbree-straad ne<-klaco of pearls, black-satin pumps and completed the ensemble.
This distinctive costume, which might prove too neutral imdet stage llghta for the average t>pe of femininity, waa particularly becoming to Misa Terry, due to the fact that her hair is a bright ihade of red and her eyca are a deep violet.
DAISY ATHEBTON, radiant brunet who  ppeari in the same cast with Misa Terry, wears a long, orange chiffon tunic, headed witli crystal bugles and peart heads. A huge bow ef orange mtllne la p»sed low on the left hip. Orange ho«e snd slippers carry out the eolor theme.
flR.trE PEBKINH, as a debonair newapaptr woman, wear* a tailored suit af n.ivy blue. While the skirt is aiiilacloiisly short to ravejl generous glimpses of sheer black liose, the mannish while bloii-e Is of the high collar type (siift and of same fabric as the |dvu*e) snd flaunts a jade green tie, whiifft Is mstrhed in hue with a rakish su*'de siiorts hit.

Some say that the bobbed coiffure Is iicro to stay; others that the lavish use of trailformations and switches to give the ImiIiIm .| head a dressy i.ffpft presages the return of long hair. HUH others point to tlie latest half-and-half N>b which Is the newest Baris fad. leaving enougli of tlie bii. k hair to conceal the front lioh when necessary.

P --Borton Beilis. KKIIAPS it is only natural that there should be a fellow feeling between Nellie ( H Uevell and me. She, too, has suffered long and patiently from a spinal affliction. She, too, has known the stretcher board, the straitjacket and the plaster cast in her long siege. There were times, 0 so many times, when she wondered if the sun would ever come up over the horizon again to smile at her, but the hope never died in her breast. And now the look siege is eiidi'd for her. She is no longer obliged to hungrily enjoy the little sunshine that reached her bed-room window for, with the aid of a wheel ch.air, she is now able to get out in to the world sh? loves. Down at Atlantic City, where she can bask In the sunshine and breathe the invigorating sea breeze, Nellie hopes to get back the strength to fit her for the life of activity she has planned. When the eventful day arrived for her to leave New York her happiness was overwhelming, but she did not forget a sweet thought of me, for her cheery letter and gor¬ geous bouiiuet told me so. May all your dreams come true, Nellie, dear!

Children--the Other Side
Dallas, rei.. June 13. 19.'4. Editor The Billboard;
Sir--I have fust finished Miss rrent's letter concerning children on a show. I quite agree with her in every partii'uliir and have repeatedl.v seen instances sinh as she names. .She is right when slie says that it is not the fault of ehlldren but of the parents. It is a wellknown fact that few .tineriean parents attempt to control their children or teach them consider¬ ation for others. On the contrary, children are allowed to do exactly as they please and if their elders are annoyed to the verge of exasiH-ration and speak sbanily they are B'-oused of not liking the little things or making allowance for childhood.

later a performance was held for fifteen minutes while a couple of angry m'dhers decided whether one cliild had any right to hit another on the head with w pop liottle.

Oh, assuredly managers may like children --

particularly if they have nono of their own

or if they liappeii, a- is usually llie case, to

be up In their lulls, hut how alsuit the harassed,

nervous |M'ople who must study and are ex¬

pected to reme to rehearsals with their thoughts

on said parts--people who are uiiii«ed to young¬

sters and who might love children in their proper

place--a home. As Miss Trent observes, no

other business firm will allow its employees to

fetch along their offspring when they report for

work. Why sliuuld a show be turned into a

kindergarten or a nursery?

New Union Square Hotel, New York



When Union Bguare was the theatrical dis¬ trict its most famous landmark was tlie Union Square Hotel, then known as tbe rendezvous of theatrical people and sportsmen. Today this famous hostelry Is the Xew Union Square Ho¬ tel and the prefix to Its name wholly typifies the entire district. Tho the theatrical district has moved up town. Union Square has grown into one of tlie busiest spots in Kew York. The hundreds of business establishments, tbe sub¬ way kiosks, the street car lines and tin' elevated

stations affording every means of transporta¬ tion, togetber with the New Union .siqiiare Ho¬ tel Itself, present a spectacle only seen in the largest city In tbe world.
I)ue to tlie convenience of travel, the New Union Square Hotel is slowly but sifrely regain¬ ing its prestige as a theatrical hostelry. It was recently completely renovated and entirely newly furnished. Jack Goldburst. the manager, has adopted tbe highest standards of hotel management in operating this famous landmark. His long hotel experience up town puts him in an ideal position to carry out his plan of establishing a comfortable, reasonable and lionie-Iike liolel, wliere K|>ortinp and theatrical history was made some years ago.

Rothmen's Hotel Service Not Like Ye Olden Times

In days of old it was managers bold who |l put their tlwatrical companies up at hotels
and depended on the receipts of local theaters to pay their bills, yybich, not being paid, ofttimes resulted in tbe accompaniment of hotel manager, their clerks, or deputy sheriffs, to the
I next stand to either collect the hotel hill or
attach the shows. Times have clianged since then, likewise the
methods of theatrical and hotel managers, but theatrical managers have introduced nothing to compare with Mine Ho«t Rotbraen, who oiterates the Blngham-Daveniiort Hotels at Atlantic City, for whereas in tlie olden days theatrical man¬ agers advanced money to actors when they bad it. today Mine Host Rotbmen Is advancing

Berlin News Letter
By 0. M. SEIBT
lillLIX, .June 3.--Discussions between tbe I. A. L. and the Managers' .VsHiH'iation for putting up a new tariff contract are
set for June 17. Indications are that the present deadifs-k will contlnne. Theatrical Imsliiess in terrible all over the *-ounfry, with tl»e summer hardly begun, and had news as to In¬ ability of paying salaries and closings of theaters, mnsic balls and cabarets, so It is

rather evident that tbe present period la hardly suitable for new tariff discussions, in fact gome managers declare they don't care what happens so long as they are able to keep things going without being obliged to ask for a receiver and no threat of a strike will move them. Conditions are lomewbat different from those of five years ago, when tbe present tariff rontract came into being; then the countr.T wn* in a hysterical mood for amusement* of any sort and. In spite of a very profound shortnes. of food and other nocesnltleg of life, money wa* forllieoming en*IIy (paper money at that) and it way then when cabarets and dame fl,wirs sprung up like mushroom*. Many a s|s>i nlator, war profitt'er or rug and bone merclmut Ih-. came a herr director over night by renting a phop or empty cellar and putting np n beauty ballet show, with wine compulsory. In tbe occnpled territory, especially at Cologne and Coblenz, nothing but ebampagnwould be aikcd for by the TommlM and Sammlef, since tbeir pay in sterlings and dol¬ lars was of enormous vslus la paper marks. Today Cologne Is even worse In regard to show business thiAi Berlin and Cologne cabaret* and music balls are mighty glad to sell a glass of beer to their customers. If any. Tbe mnre 1* stabilized and money extremely tight, with b.inks charging enormous Interest if willing to borrow and with liring condition* having gono up considerably, de*plte the fart that most people earn les* than In pre-war da.vs, there 1* a hard struggle In front of the I. A. I.. fight'ng for at least an equal tariff contract With additional payment for traveling and matinee*.
Manager Welse-itacbse 1* wanted by the police. Not *0 long ago he glaringly adver¬ tised In the trade papers the enormous bills of his local cabaret* and music ballf. When tbe Inflation came to an end Welse-Rachse added iiiiotber hou-e, the Walhalla, playing big-time vaudeville and booking foreign turn* that would litre secured a date with the Wiutergarten or ··^'ala. One of tbe foreign turns booked was the late CYirl Hertt. Tbe Walhalla, as reported. Went broke Ju«t before Easter and one by one hi* other hoiiaea did likewise. Weise Saebte, who la not identical with Manager Richard Welse, of Zelt I, was the type of nnscrupulous iiiansger who put all their Confidence In un¬ dressed girl shows.
The Orn**e Volk* Oper, one of the four Berlin grand opera bouses, has Just averted a crl-l* hy cutting Its montblr salary list of ."·O.fKlO mark* ((IZ.-'iDO), sharply redneing ail salaries above 150 marks monthly. .\t first it looked as if no salaries at all were to b« (·aid May 31 and the actors, aware of tbe financial situation, in a mass me*-ting unani¬ mously demanded the resignation of Director I.ange, whom they blamed for all tbe trouble. Yesterday a settlement wan effected when It became known that a well-known Berlin financier, whose name Is mentioned in connertlon with a famoua opera singer, put down sufficient cash to meet enrrent obligations, (·onditional of ibove salary cutting!.
Tbe local amusement tax bas been reduced from 13 to 3 per cent In legitimate theatera, following a sharp protest with tbe municipal authnritins, masuigers pointing to the di-astrou* theatrical conditions. It became known that the Comoedia Valettl, Wallner. T.ustspielbaus, .tpollo and Prledrlehwllhelmslaedtliiche all went smaslt after Io«lng money heavily, while at some of those theatera still playing actors arn on a commonwealth basis and hardly make sufficient to live.

The sixth annual Los Gatos (Calif.) pagea;?^ was presented June 19-20 in tbe hoautiful open-air theater. For, the opening performance "The Wild Cat of Wild Cats" was giren, and on the second night "Kl Gato de Los Gatos" was presented. .More than 300 performers took part in the staging of both productions with capacity audiences in attendance. ''The Wild t'at of Wild Cats" was given in a most thrilling manner, and of tbe five previous pageant plays staged in Los Gatos never has one been more purely symbolical of the locale, and of the entire life in Northern California in the days when the Spanish dons held vast land empires and gave great fiestas on their raneberos, assembling the whole popnlatlon for one of these gala and colorful affairs, than was "El Gato de Lo« Gatos". There were all sorts of swbrd duels, fine horsemanship and fiery dancing. Especially was "La Jota", tbe native dance put en by a troupe of real Mexican dancers, one of the most entertaining spots in the entire production. The High ScbMl Or¬ chestra furnished all the soft, bewitching Span¬ ish airs. Wilbnr Hall, who wrote the play, was assisted in Its presentation by Ruth Com¬ fort, Mitchell Young, Ruth Radford Hall, 1. W. Scott and Marie Febero.

Incidentally, those picture houses which raised their admission prices several months ago are in a happy position. The raises, while small, just about cover the amount of the tax reduction, and now these houses can give the public the benefit of the tax and still be ahead of the grame. Among the theaters to raise their prices at that time were those operated by the Famous

This inglorious end of the T. O. D. C. strikes me as a sad thing, a fact to be regretted. Others call it a fitting commentary. With such a famous man as Sydney S. Cohen at its head, with an official and directorial staff of men who are among the leaders of exhibitor organizations in the national body, the M. P. T. O. A., the burden of making a success of what appeared to be sound
proposition was yet too great, too heavy to bear. Why is it that a distributing organization, based upon the principle of
co-operation between exhibitors, cannot succeed? Surely there is nothing wrong with the principle. First National proved that the idea was not a bad one. even tho First National reverted to type after getting weil started. With thousands of exhibitors ready to use good pictures, no matter by whom they

In an address to the convention M. J O'Toole, president of the M. P. T. O.
