ONE inevitably calls to mind the oro
midlon about "extenuating circum
stances" when a thing Is a bit or a
disappointment or doesn't measure up
to expectations. The extenuating cir
cumstances to be remembered In com
paring "A Bachelor's Baby" with other
Helll? attractions that have preceded
it this season are that It is a "popular
priced" offering and that no press
agent has heralded It as the best or
even near best show of the season.
Every once in awhile, toward the end
of a season, when the theater will be
dark otherwise, the management will
book something not of the high caliber
of its predecessors In amusement. That
is what has happened in tne instance
of "A Bachelor's Baby." It opened, last
night and playa again tonight.

Tha bachelor has an everslon to ba

The child mistakes him for her father
