Sure, it's a little bft of heaven,
"The Heart of Paddy Whack," the de
lightful Irish play that Cbauncey
Olcott has brought to Portland, for
this rose-time week.
A large and appreciative audience
welcomed Mr. Olcott last night at the
Heilig Theater. There was no disap
pointment in the whole performance.
The ever-popular star possesses the
same charm, the tame wonderfully
sweet voice, the same irresistible man
ner and genius that have made him
famous in the plays in which he has
appeared her before.
Intermingled with the comedy are,
of course, several of the new Olcott
songs "A Little Bit of Heaven," "A
Broth of a Boy," "Irish Eyes of Love"
and a few others while some old fa
vorites were given as good measure.
Little Speech la Made.
After the second act, Mr. Olcott, who
had responded to half a dozen eurtain
calls, made a little speech and sang
by request "My Wild Irish Rose" and
"The Heart of Paddy Whack" Is elab
orately staged with fine artistic ef
fect and with faithful regard to de
tail. The period is about the year 1830.
Dennis O'Malley, Mr. Olcott, is a whim
sical, witty bachelor, with the typical
big heart and ail the fine sentiments
that should be possessed by a true son
of Erin. There is much of tender senti
ment, of romance, both grave and gay,
and of sparkling dialogue in the play,
which is all capably interpreted by a
Henry Miller, under whose direction
the company is appearing, has shown
good judgmeht in the selection of the
Dennis In Love With Ward.
Mr. Olcott. in the role of the bachelor-guardian
to the lovely Mona Cairn,
arives an ideal interpretation to the
character. Dennis falls in love with
his young ward, Mona, but he doesn't
tell her as long as there is a chance
tor her to love the younger man, Larry
Llmmerlng, the decorative and. good
looking son of the Squire.
The love story is the heart and soul
of the plot and as all Irish plays should
ao. it all ends well; but meanwhile
there are introduced some fine features.
The first act and the last are laid in
the living-room of Dennis' home and
lito muuxiu ia in nis DeauLiiui oia-xasn-ioned
garden, where hollyhocks grow
and the Ivy climbs over the old walls
and a goose waddles in to add to the
spirit of nomanre Reigns.
When Mr. Olcott sings ono of his
heart songs the garden becomes fairy
land and the spirit of romance reigns.
No small amount of credit is due to
Stephen Davis, who plays the part of
the picturesque peasant lad. Michael.
With his piping and his native wit. He
brings to Dennis a vision of his lady
love. He sets about to make that
vision a reality.
Clever, indeed, is Mr. Olcott in the
scene in which, as' the village lawyer,
he settles the dispute of the Maginnisses
and the O'Dowds, who are wrangling
oyer the horse that was bought and
had subsequently died. Dennis gives a
wise and impressive decision that sat
isfies both parties. Excellent character
work is shown in this seen in which

Following the address of Dr. James

League, on "Peaoe and Armaments" be
fore the Members' Council at the Cham

tion was submitted to the council urg
ing upon " the Government the im
portance of providing adequate arma

against possible foreign aggression.
The resolution was in line with the
view expressed by Dr. Bullitt in bis
address, and A. H. Devers and others
spoke in favor of its adoption. It was
deemed of such importance, however.
that the council decided to appoint a
special committee to study the resolu
tion more closely and report back to
the council for future and more def
inite action. The resolution recom
mends adoption of a broad policy of
preparedness in armaments against
possible foreign aggression.
J. 11. Apple, advertising manager ot
the Wanamaker stores, also spoke on
the importance of armed preparation,
and W. J. Pennell, of Hawaii, gave per

needs of the islands.

"Without such provision we may
never hope to reach real efficiency in
National defense, no matter what per

able to attain.
"This improved efficiency would not
necessarily mean greatly increased ap
propriations by Congress. We have ex
pended enormous sums for Army and
Navy, much of which has not been rep
resented by anything military or naval.
A real efficiency in expenditure can
be effected only by a reformation of
legislative methods, which are almost
as old as the Republic. This can only
be brought about by the sovereign ef
fect of an overwhelming public opinion
which will abolish the legislative log
rolling which has been responsible for
the "pork barrel,' for the pensions
scandal and for the political bias of
the Army and Navy appropriations.
"Public opinion, to be effective, must
be long sustained, which has always
rendered it a most unwieldy weapon.
With the termination of this year it
is easy to conceive that the people
generally will lose sight of those neces
sities which eo prominently engage
their attention now. Each will go
about his personal affairs, and matters
of National defense may drift along
aimlessly as they have in the past."

BI LEONE CASS BAER.
Anna Pavlowa's dancing leaves a
memory of wonderful rhythm, a rhythm
as definite as some1 delicately embroi
dered pattern on fine tapestry.
Her dancing is a series of lovely ani
mated patterns recorded In a world oi
Pavlowa has caught the rhythm that
goes through all things that are lovely,
and expresses it within the conditions
of her own personality. Pavlowa is
rhythm itself. ,
None of her dances is separated from
the universal dance of life. She inter
prets the high carnival of dance which
nature holds for all of us if we could
but see It.
Pavlowa makes her contribution to
the world's harmony and joy under no
rules and regulations. Genee. for in
stance, strictly follows rules and her
dancing is like other ballets save that
it is better and more fully realised.
Dancer Abandons Tradition.
Pavlowa is more intensely rhyth
mical, and under the promptings of a
wide impulse she makes a. departure
from the traditional ballet and is not
subjected to a complex technical art.
Which is not decrying technical art,
for as a matter of truth it is a remark-,
able fact that Pavlowa's audiences love
the touch of the acrobatic in her dance
at times and show this appreciation of
technical excellence. But it is true
that Pavlowa understands and inter
prets the deeper sincere law of the
dancing art rather than its mere rules
Pavlowa is an exquisite sexless crea
ture, adorably spirituelle, whose dan
cing is a mental process quite as much
as physical exposition.
Rules Kali to Hold.
She seems outside of, or above, all
rules, guided only by the simple and
eternal law of grace and rhythm, which
becomes the highest poetry of expres
sion. Pavlowa's programme last night at
the Baker Theater delighted a capacity
audience with its dances, pantomimic
art, exquisite music and its scenic
beauty. "Puppen Fee" (the Doll Fairy)
showing two scenes in a Paris toy
shop in the early '30s, was ne of the
smartest, quaintest ballets, with dozens
of dolls ' coming to life in animated
dance, and the lovely Pavlowa ai a
slender, frilly, fluffy fairy doll in a
gold wig and her wonderful toes
In the beautiful "Walpurgis Night,"
taken from Gounod's .opera, "Faust,"
Mile. Pavlowa appears aa Helena, a role
that calls for not merely dancing, but
Companion Also Graceful.
In these she has a fellow artist in
M. Alexandre Volinine. who appears as
a prince charming in the fairy doll en
semble and later as Cleopatra's slave
in "Walpurgis Night." He is heavier
than Yordkin, and not physically as
handsome, but M. Volinine is a marvel
ously graceful dancer and electrifies
with the sheer beauty and daring of
his leaping dances.
In the part of the programme devoted
to divertissements a dozen clecer folk
contributed character dances. M. Vol
inine as a Pierrot; Mile. Kuhn and M.
Pavley in a Holland dance.
Mile. Plaskowieszka, first solo dan
seuse, whose personal charm and ability
made her a prime favorite, appeared
often, once in a minuet, once as a baby
doll, again In a polka comique, and as
Frlna, a dancer in "Walpurgis night."
A beautiful ballet was given with
the Blue Danube Waltz, and Mme.
Pavlowa and M. Ivan Clustine, recog
nised as Europe's most finished ball
room dancer, gave the gavotte Pavlowa,
an unusually spirited and lovely dance.
Possibly Pavlowa's "Swan." from
Saint-Saens, brought the most demon
stration. On a semi-darkened stage, Pavlowa.

wings spreading above her skirts,

entirely different from last night's,

both. Not the least of the beauties in
the entertainment is the complete sym
