By CHESTER B. BAHN. . WIBTINO.-AJI week. "My Lady Friends." Tbfs show, with Clifton Crawford as the fee- tared player, Is one of the funniest and snap- piest farces to hit Syracuse In the proverbial dogs age. Its chief assets are a theme out of the ordinary—lines that sparkle, high-speed ac- ton and Crawford, who does not need a galaxy of shapely coryphees and elaborate scenic effects to fortify bis brand of comedy. Of the cast ot 10 seven are women. Of the latter the work of The res* Con over M the wife .and Rae Bo will o. as the housemaid stand out. Next week, "Tht Phantom Legion." Empire.—Monday, Walter Hampden In "Ham- let." A skilfully drawn characterization of the melancholy Dane, made Impressive by the fact that Hampden docs not merely recite his lines— ho acta them. Tuesday-Wednesday, William Gillette in "Dear Brutus." Thursday-Sunday, "Yankee Doodle to Berlin." bast able. -First half, "Star and Garter Show." With the exception of a new musical •core—If a collection of popular bits can be ao termed—tbia year's Wetngarden production shows no change from that of 1018. The cast. too, shows but one shift. Chubby Drlsdale filling the aoubret gap. The principals on the whole are capable enough, but are handicapped by aioee-co verctl material to work with. The chorus, Judging from the age of the girls, might be the same one that was with the original "Star and Garter'' back in the dim past of burlesque. But, girt 'em credit, they can sing. Last half, "Rev- stations of a Wife." Next week, first half, "Bon Ton Girls." TEMPLE.—Vaudeville. CRESCENT.-Vaudeville. STRAND.—First part, "The Brat." Thle N»- afJaeva production may be summed up aa an ex- cellent production (Metro) of a manifestly un- real story. ECKEL.—First part, "Rough Riding Ro- mance." Strictly a stunt picture In which Tom Mix attempts to oat-Fairbanks Doug. SAVOY.—First part. "The World and Ita Wom- en." Excellent Goldwyn film, judged from any angle. Beginnlrg Sunday the Top Theatre, the city's newest film place, entered the "first-run" class. The Top wlU show Paramount, Paths, Select and First National dims. The house tried out a novel publicity stunt this week. Its display advs. took the form of coupons giving the pro- gram for some time In advance. Patrons pre- senting the coupons will have them punched, and attendance at a certain percentage of the films during 29 days will receive frss tickets for December productions. • W- Dayton Wegefarth, formerly of Nixon's Grand, Philadelphia, arrived here Friday to assume the duties of manager of the new Keith house. Workmen thli week started the placing of the huge electrical sign In front of the house, while the interior decorating showed good prog- ress. The tentative opening date to Thanks- giving. Definite announcement Is expected next week. v After five years Sam Rosenberg, treasurer of the Bastable, donned football togs on Sunday, playing with All-Syracuse In Its game with the Red and Black eleven of Watertown. Rosen- berg, who tips the scales at 290 or thereabouts, played left guard, and Syracuse won, 12 to 0. Sam Insists there's a connection between the two. Isabel Rea, formerly with the Empire Stock here, returned to this city this week, playing the feminine lead In "On the High Seas" at the Temple.

Syracuse's own little war, staged by the .'Tost Standard" and the local theatres, Is over aa far as the local legitimate houses are con- cerned. With the 'Tost Standard" apparently victorious. The break In the ranks of the strik- ing theatres came last Thursday when the Em- pire, of which M. B. Wolff la manager, returned to the "Post Standard" fold. The Empire Is classed as a K. A E. house. Manager Wolff resides at Rochester. With the Empire using the "Post Standard" advertising columns, the WIetIng Opera House (Sbuberta') was prac- tically forced to follow suit, as the "Post Standard's" morning circulation Is greater than that of either of the two local evening papers. The fight, however, was not occasioned by the dairy 'Tost Standard," but rather by the In- creased rates In the "Sunday Post Standard," which ranks far below the Syracuse "Sunday Herald" In city circulation. To date the local leading picture houses are still standing out and declare they will continue to do so. The "Post Standard" rate Jump would hit them to a greater extent than It would the legit, houses, for tbe movies here use more display space. What will happen to the Syracuse Managers' Association, which resulted from the local fight. Is problematic . That It will continue to hold meetings Is certain, but several members ques- tion tts value if those affiliating do not stick together. It is said that the local house man- agers are In perfect agreement, but the pinch comes In that several must take their, orders .from headquarters, and so are liable to be over- ruled by the man above. .
