Two encores and a heavy hand at the finish. Los Angeles "Chronicle" Glenn and Jenkins in 'Working for the Railroad" were shoved way back on the bill, but even, at that, the boys got away with so many real he-man laughs, that that posi- tion meant nothing.

When their opinion and the local paper reviews are circulated lighter houses for the remainder of the engagement should be in order. PLAYHOUSE.—Billy Allen, co- median, and his company of girls are still drawing well in their third week. The house management seems to have at last struck on the proper entertainment for this thea- tre, stock burlesque for the family. GAYETY.—"Hurly Burly Girls." LYCBUM.—Dark. HIPPODROME.—Pop vaudeville. GARDEN.—Pop vaudeville. FOLLY. — "Merry Rounders," stock burlesque, has as its feature "Rosalie's Parisian Living Models," with the garb of the "Parlslennes" approaching that of a woman's un- derwear advertisement rather than that of the Latin quarter. PALACE.—"The Girls of the U. 8. A.," with Margaret White an the whole show. PARKWAY. — "Forbidden Fruit," film. K1VOLI.—"The Devil," picture. NEW.—"The Greater Claim." STRAND.—"Song of Souls." the performance proceeded. Flood lights on the stage were directed upon the audience during the In- termissions until later in the eve- ning when the auditorium lights came on again. The other theatres with makeshift lighting did the best they could until the repairs were made. 123129 West 44th Street NEW YORK EUROPEAN PLAN (WITHOUT MEALS) $1.50 Day and Up (1) $2.00 Day and Up (2) AMERICAN PLAN (WITH MEALS) $4.00 Day and Up (1) $7.00 Day and Up (2) ROOM AND PRIVATE BATH $3.50 Day and Up (1) $6.00 Day and Up (1) $4.00 Day and Up (2) $10.00 Day and Up (2) Rettaurant Conducted on Both a la Carte and Table D'Hote Wanr.

Getting away to a very dragging first act the play failed to hold interest until after the beginning of the second act and the appearance of William Faver- .sham, but after that everything was smooth sailing and drew good no- tices. Will do well here this week. ACADEMY. — Alexander, second week, gained lots in popularity since Opening night and lirwt class draw- ing card. FORDS.—The largest Monday evening crowd of th<> season saw the opening night of the engage- Due to two bad breaks in the cables of the local lighting company within 30 minutes of each other the local picture houses and theatres had a bad set back in their box of- fice receipts Saturday night. The accidents occurred at 8.30 before the shows had really gotten under- way. In the downtown section the picture houses were In total dark- ness, with film projection stopped from 20 to 40 minutes. Part of the audience left, in some Instances re- ceiving their money back or return tickets for another show. Explana- tions by managers of the cause of the difficulty served to allay appre- hension and no disorder was report- ed. At the New Lyceum theatre all the lights In the auditorium went out just before the opening curtain. Stage lights, which arc on a direct current line, were not affected and The Kafe Kaluna, Madison ave- nue near North, known before the war as the Kaiser and during the war as the Columbia, and the near- est thing this city ever had to a real first class cabaret, has been acquired by Jos. Castleberg. It is his intention to erect on the site a picture theatre to be known as the Castle. Application has been made for the permit to start building. The plans are being prepared by B. Q. Hlanke, architect, and while still In the preliminary stages the new theatre will have a seating capacity of 2,000. As soon as the permit to build has been 'granted the present building which is new being used for the storage of sacramental wine will be rased and building opera- tions begun. Bernard Dcpkln, Jr., will be managing director of the theatre. Mr. Castleberg is now the owner of the Strand and the New Pickwick theatres with Mr. Depkin as manager. Suit for $ir>,000 was filed In the City Court by Maurice Levi through his attorney against the Sandy Beach Amusement Co. for services last summer as band master for the resort. He sets forth that he was engaged to furnish 17 musicians at $635 weekly for the entire season, but was permitted to play at the beach only one week. Although no definite announce- ment has yet been mado by the local officials of the Erlanger Inter- ests of their plans for the purchase of the Academy of Visitation con- vent on the northeast corner of Howard and Centre streets.

It's generally the sons who follow in the father's foot- steps, but with Eddie Mack's fashionable suits it's the reverse; the father comes to Eddie to get a suit or over- coat that he admired so much on his son and had ap- praised with his experienced eyee as a good buy. 1582-1584 Broadway Opp. Strand Theatre 722-724 Seventh Ave. Opp. Columbia Theatre NORMAN J.
