THE Orpheum was a moving
picture theater of. the higher
type, giving .four de luxe;
shows a day. The theatrical per
formance was a prologue for the
moving picture ' which followed.
Rehearsals for the following
week's show, began on the Thurs
day previous. ; - - - ' ' . ,
Betty ' reported ; promptly -.on
Thursday. The next week's picture
was to be patriotic la - character,
so the stage band vas costumed
as sailors end the s tigs' arranged
as the deck, of a battleship. ,
; Betty's part required her, to
wear a sport dress. She and nine
other girls "came up the .' gang
plank as visitors to the ship, form
ing e background for dancers also
costumed as sailers. The dance
numbers were arranged, to" carry
out the hornpipe motif. t
In the finale Betty and three
girls of her general height and
build posed, as armyr navy, marine
corps and air, service, Betty rep2
resenting the air service. The cos
tumes were as scanty as possible,
end Betty looked at her aghast.
She went through the rehearsal
intelligently, . however, - and was
pleased when the stage manager,
after two explanations, paid" to
her: "Brown, there seems to be
something above your eyebjrows
besides hair. You've got the idea;
take charge of this tableau. Ton
three do what she says!" s
Betty took her three girls out
of the way of the sweating, swear
ing stage manager, and pdsod
them behind a drop which was to
rise at the right moment to show
the tableau to ..the audience. Th
curtain rose, and the stage man
agar-exclaimed: "Thank Tieaven,
that's all right!". -f -
- The curtain went down And the
girls in the tableau broke their
positions. As It rose again, the
stage manager yelled: "Don't bt
so darned modest!. There might
be an encore, you know! Hold till
I tell you to break!" .
He paid no more1 attention to
them. Betty sat on a broken chair
to watch the dancers. Over and
over again he-put them through
the routines. One particularly
awkward girl was told: "You
won't do. Beat itl'! J3he left .the
stage in tears. Betty'sjeet did the
steps as she sat on her chair.. They
seemed easy. 13he left the theatre
happy in the consciousness--that
she -could hold this position for a
week at least, and believing she
(could make herself valuable and

At home that night she amused

that she was progressing. And she
might get an encore for her dance

pily, to originate a routine for thlc

The first show In which Bettj
worked was at three o'clock or

generous, and applauded her vig

she stood in the wings ready for
her encore, but the adagio team.
which was to follow, crowded past
her, effectually blocking her off.
She said": ..
"Excuse me. please," laying Jier
hand, rather hastily on the arm
of that pretty girl.
"Take your hand off me!"
snapped that individual, with a
look of hatred.
The music of the adagio num
ber started, but the aedlenca was
in a Jovial mood, and 'would not
have it. They drowned It with
their applause. The stage manager
rushing to the entrance, gave
Betty a push and said:
"Get out there and take "a
bow." .
The man of the adagio team
moved a step and made it impos
sible for her to get on. The stage
manager pulled him roughly to One
side and, waving his hand at the
orchestra leader, the music chang
ed to the hornpipe. Betty did her
encore, and again received hearty
applause. ' - " r
She left the stage angry, deter
mined to say something to the
two dancers, "but found them in
the midst of an altercation with
the stage manager.
"Tou .try to crab another act on

stamping her foot. j
The stage manager . waved his
Imperious hand and the music of
the adagio number started.
"Out there ; -with ryou or get

little hell cat!" His finger pointed
to the stage and the girl danced
smilingly out in front of the au
dience. "You are so goodl" said Betty.
"Good, the devil!" I'm, trying to
give a show! Don't bother met"
Betty was elated as she received
the congratulations of the local

Her dance was a success all that
lay. She had an encore each time
she danced. It was a happy girl

"Beautiful lady, may I have the
Pleasure?" asfted a voice at her

the smiling face of 'Andy Adair

"Why. hello, Andy! Where did

"I was out front and saw you
