It was announced that in some in

organization of the four Ls in order

NEW BILLS AT THE THEATERS
BY LEONE CASS BAER.
IF the letter "I" were removed from
the English language Harry Fox
couldn't talk. He begins every sen
tence with I and even stutters the
beginning of each sentence so he can
get in about r dozen I-I-I-Is. The
best part of his act is after the en
trance of a keen little maid named
Beatrice Curtis, who carries on a
clever flirtation. She pretends to be
a girl from another act who has wan
dered Into the middle of Mr. Fox's
monologue by mistake and he annexes
her for his own act after ascertaining
that she is all alone in the world. She
is a pretty girl, dainty and demure,
of great personal charm. She neither
sings nor steps, but fits in smartly
to answer Mr. Fox's queries or feed
lfim a line when he wants to say
something original. Mr. Foxt rem
inisces a bit in family matters and
has the. stage hand tote in a. huge
picture of the Dolly Sisters, one of
whom, Yanscl, is Mrs. Fox and with
her sister In a dancing act in London.
Press dispatches do not say whether
Yanscl Doily stops in the middle of
her dancing act to drag in a life-size
picture of Mr. Fox, but it is to be
hoped that the" marital devotion is
The most original and diverting- bit
in the Fox act is when he sings a
ditty about being a hotel lobby hound,
and tells of the girls he has met at
the various hotels. A drop back of
him has apertures labeled Biltmore,
Astor, etc.. and out of each doorway
steps a sad damsel wearing the in
signia of the chambermaids' union.
Frowsy of hair, slipshod, slatternly
and ungraceful they gallop through a
few steps, and quite live up to the
title he gives them, "The Follies of
Wallis Clark, an excellent character
actor, returns with a new, sketch, "A
Good Bad Man." in which he portrays
an elderly roue whose machinations
where one little maid are concerned
are cleverly checkmated by the little
maid herself and another. Mr. Clark's
assumption of giddy old age, his
mincing gait and pathetic clutches at
departing youth are splendidly con
veyed and the character takes on
reality. Devah Morel is the eirl and
adds color and vocal charm to the
role. A noteworthy bit of character
work is contributed by Louis Ancker
as the butler.
"No Tomorrow" is the title of a
little oddity in which a girl and a
man read that the world is coming to
an end at miinight and so they make
the most of the few remaining hours.
They even commit matrimony and
sing -about it, and dance when the
world still goes on. The girl Is Mabel
Tillie Rogers and the man who does
an inebriated hero of comedy twists
is Karle S. Dewey. The scenic in
vestiture of their act is exceedingly
handsome, a sleeping porch in a villa
set among trees.
Billy Shone tells stories and sings
and does a characterization in song
of a father with triplets and a pessi
mistic vision as to marriage. His 'pan
tomime occasions laughter.
The Four Harmony Kings, billed as
a symphony in color, return with both
color and symphony unfaded. They
have new songs, and their yodeling
specialty is Capital in harmony and
comedy results. They have an ex
tensive list of songs and give a de
lightful account of every minute.
A splendid exhibition of the pa
tience of a trainer and the sagacity
of seals is evidenced in the opening
act in which two marvelously trained
and sensible seals jtre put through a
series of tricks. One Is Wastiska and
one is Understudy and they balance
and juggle and play ball and prove
their intelligence in a hundred ways.
.The three Lordons close the bill
with one of those gymnastic acro
batic acts in which they drop from
the swinging trapeze and bars to
bounce and somersault on springs be
low. One of the trio is a long, happy
comedian who provides sensational
moments and delightful fun while the
others do remarkable straight adven
ture in mid-air.
P. S. This show closes with the
BY LEONE CASS BAER.
A FASCINATING story of youth
ful de-teck-a-tives and love mak
ing villains enacted in a small town
is "Penrod," the Booth Tarkington
play that opened last night at the
Baker. Penrod Schofield is the young
son of the one lone respectable banker
in the town and for four delightful
acts his youthful enterpriSes as head
of a detective agency contrive to em
brace most of the heroics of young
boyhood. The dramatist has used the
best in the Tarkington stories as a
basis and has made the juvenile part
cf the cast the prominent portion
with the parents and other grown
ups subject to their fascinating game
of detective. Those familiar with
Booth Tarkington's originals pro
fessed after seeing last night's play
t" find it extremely real and inter
esting. The play has no big dram
atic value, but it is, like its prede
cessors, "Seventeen," and "Clarence,"
delightful and intensely human in ar
gument. Bob Knight is the prime and mov
ing spirit in the play for he is Pen
rod. If Mr. Tarkingtori had scoured
the city he couldn't have found a bet
ter type or a boy who better under
stands the serious business of being
Penrod. Bob is probably only playing
Bcb Knight, for he and Penrod are
average ' American boys in average
American homes. When he is drag
ged forth to lead the pageant his
open rebellion at wearing his sister's
stockings and his father's underwear
as a part of his regalia are so natural
ly expressed and his attitude so bel
liserant that the applause of the audi
ence almost broke up the show. His
scorn at the failures and resignations
of his trusty darky sleuths, his open
rebellion at being put to bed, his fury
at being called a little gentleman and
his efforts to beat up 'the little
Fauntleroy lad who is held up as a
shining example all were perfectly
portrayed and kept the audience con
Another clever young lad, Robert
Russell, plays the role of Penrod's
pal, Sam Williams, and he. too, is re
sourceful, natural and alert every
minute. Their scene where they break
up the pageant by letting loose a
fiock of hornets on the participants
is a joyful occasion.
It is the work of the children that
makes the play. Ann Wade is a
dainty flower-like girl from next
door.. Ruth Jackling is the goody
Fauntleroy, and two excellent char
acterizations of the darkies, Herman
and Verman, are played by Samuel
Jones and Walter Corry. Their d
tective agency, their meetings and
methods of tracking the villian are
nvrth-provocative. There is a real
villain who aspires to wed Penrod's
young sister and a real hero who
gives the detectives lucre every time
they dicover a clew. William Lee is
evcellent as the hero, a role he in
vests with youthful ardor and im
portance. Murray Barnard is the
dressy, wily villian and Leona Powers
is a delightful young heroine in red
curls and of'ingenuous moods. Papa
Schofield is made splendidly real by
Selmcr Jackson and Shirley Mayberry
acids a homelly feeling as Mamma
Schofield. Lora Rogers is an Irish 1
cook and Jarge . the swain is especi
ally interesting as portrayed by Leo
LIndhard. George P. Webster occas
ions hilarity as the'sanctimonious par
son and later turned into a nice cop.
Irving Kennedy helped foil the vil
lain. Smith Davies was another fond
papa and Muriel Kinney the mother
of Fauntleroy. Th scene is in the
Schofield yard for three acts with the
final happenings in their sitting room
in the fourth act.
It ippod roine.
TWO very funny comedians are Cy
and Cy. a pair of quaintly garbed
minstrels, twho have a dreadful time
controlling the bass drummer while
they sing a.London ditty, at the Hip
podrome all about a hat and a pipe
and a cane. When they have stumbled
through the last verse and dashed off
stage they make a hasty changeof
costume and lo! two jolly tars are
back. One of tne Cys proceeds to
sound a few military calls on a rub
ber hose in place of a bugle. His
mate steps forth and attempt, an
other tune out of spite for the bass
drum. They dance and sing and cut
up in general and win a lot of hilar
ious applause, especially from the
small boys in the audience. The pair
are particularly well-liked i.i their
revival of old familiar and blood
curdling sailor songs.
"Help Yourself" is the progra: ime
title of the- Gill and Veak cafeteria
skit, which takes place in the too
familiar one-arm lunch room. Food
natually is the principal subject of
the discourse and furnishes much ma
terial for spicy puns. The act ends
when GUI and Veak step out in front
of the curtain and recite a verse de
picting the woes of those who must
depend on restaurants instead of
A fantastic musical comedy is pre
sented by Frank Rich and company in
"Will She Win." Woman, represent
ing temptation, asks Mephistopheles
to produce a man who heeds not the
wiles of fair beauties, she declaring
she is tired of all others. A drunkard
is produced and is turned loose on
the scene. Then follow complications.
Daring stunts in mid-air are per
formed by the Aerial Macks, who pro
vide their entertainment on a small
trapeze. They swing when holding
to each other only by the feet, the
man even swinging his partner while
clutching her body between his nimble
toes. A thrill is provided at the end
when a rope on which the woman is
swinging seemingly breaks and she
falls. The cord, however, has merely
unwound from a trick knot.
Songs are furnished by Billy Smith
and Charles Keefe. A very good mo
tion picture play stars Sessile
Hayakawa in "An Arabian Knight."
Bainbrtdge Island Will Be Scene
of Experiment in Repatria
tion This Winter.
SEATTLE. Wash., Oct. 3. (Special.)
Bainbridge island will be the scene
of a unique experiment in repatriation
this winter, after the arrival October
31 of 61 little Polish refugees from
eastern Siberia, who will take up
their residence on the island pending
the settlemnt of affairs in Poland.
The orphaned children, ranging in age
iium . ana o years lo youngsters or
IS, are on their way- from Yokohama
on the steamship Fushima Maru. Se
attle Poles met this afternoon to plan
for the arrival of the refugees.
Three hundred children have been
taken out of that portion of Siberia
remaining under Japanese control.
They are orphans. Most of them are
the offspring of Polish political of
fenders who were banished to Siberia
by the Russian imperial government.
Pestilence and strife under the ad
ministration of the bolshevik took
from them their parents. Homeless
and in many cases near death, they
were banded together by the Red
Cross and concentrated In Yokohama.
The plan is to centralize the chil
dren at points in the United States,
give them an education and when
conditions warrant, send them on to
Poland. They are in no sense de
pendent on the charity of the people
of the United States.
A 49-acre farm on Bainbridge Is
land has been obtained. It is well
cultivated and improved and has
numerous buildings. This is to be a
combination nursery school home.
The others of the 300 child refugees
will come to America this fall on
other steamships, and some of them
will be landed at other Pacific coast
ports and cared for in those cities by
the national committee.

Lyric theater with a matinee yester
day afternoon, has the three features
of a successful musical comedy
plenty of good singing and dancing
and a generous portion of laugh
The show has an international
fiavor with Ben Dillon and Al Franks
as comedy Irish and Jewish types.
Ben Broderick in the role of a China
man and Dorothy Raymond leading
an attractive Spanish number. The
plot of the play concerns the unsuc
cessful efforts of Mike and Ike, fear
ing the wrath of Mike's wife, to cover
up their attentions to a popular act
ress. They fix up a story of a hunt
ing trip, and rely on the testimony
of Deacon Jones, played by Will
Rader. to confirm their wild tale.
The scene in which Mrs. Dooley ques
tions Mike, while the actress is hiding
ir. a closet nearby, sets the audience
roaring with laughter, which is in
creased when Ike pretends to be a
ventriloquist to save the day. Ben
Broderick as Wah Sing, handles the
part of an eccentric oriental in fine
style, and is rewarded by a tempest
of laughs. Then there's a serious lit
tle, romance between the handsome
leading man. Frank O'Rourke, and
Gay DuValle, as a cute little maid in
the Dooley household .
Miss Floy Ward, who directs the
dancing numbers, provides the Rose
bud chorus with some excellent steps,
the opening chorus and a Chinese en
semble being particularly good.
On the musical side of the pro
gramme, tiny Gay DuValle is re
peatedly encored in a "kid" song. "The
Youngest in the Family." and Ben
Broderick does an old favorite.
"Chong." which he puts over well.
Will Rader sings "I've Got the Blues
for My Old Kentucky Home," and
m a Ire s a big hit, assisted by the Lyric
trio harmonizing with him in a coun
ter melody of "My Old Kentucky
Home." Frank O'Rourke has another
jazz number, "You Tell 'Em." and
Dorothy Raymond is well received
with "In Old Manila."
The present show will have added
features in a country store Tuesday
