At the Majestic
The popularity of Marguerite Fields
and her superb company playing at
the Majestic this week increases. Last
night every seat in the auditorium was
sold and an excellent production of
"The Common Law" was given.
This afternoon there will be another
change of bill when "A Doll's House"
will occupy the stage. The play tells
of a young wife who has been treated
by her husband as a doll and not
taught any of life's responsibilities.
When her husband becomes ill, she
forges a note to secure money to send
him to a health resort. Recovering
and learning of her indiscretion, he
thinks only of the disgrace the crime
will bring to him and not of the sac-
rifice she has made for him. In a
most tense scene, she leaves, her hus-
band's house, and the sound of the
closing street door brings to an end
one of the most intense plays in mod-
ern stage literature or productions.
"Green Stockings" is the rather pe-
culiar title of a bright and dressy com-
edy to be presented by Marguerite
Fields and her company tonight. The
comedy takes its title from the old
English custom of requiring an elder
sister to wear green stockings at the
wedding of any of her younger sis-
ters. Celia Farraday has had two of
her younger sisters marry and has
been compelled to wear the hated
hose to the delight of her friends, and
as the play opens, the announcement of
the engagement of her baby sister is
announced. To forestall the gibes
which ensue as a matter of routine,
Celia announces that she herself is
"engaged" to a certain "Colonel"
Smith, who has just gone off to war.
This is an invention, pure and simple,
as she creates the colonel out of whole
cloth. However, her position in the
Farraday household immediately is al-
tered. The men who formerly looked
askance at the "old maid" now find her
most attractive and pay her much at-
tention. Instead of looking after the
household duties, she lies in bed drink-
ing chocolate and writing love letters
to the man she had created. Of course,
one of her love letters is accidentally
discovered and in the second act, after
Celia has announced that "Colonel
Smith" has died of wounds in Somali-
land, a very real colonel comes to see
her. , Endless complications result,
with much bright dialogue and many

ROSE PANTfoR STOKES SPEAKS
ON "SOCIALISM AND WOMEN"
Says Advent of Socialism Will Cause
Women to Forsake Drudgery
of Home Life!
Rose Pastor Stokes in her lecture
yesterday afternoon on the subject of
"Socialism and Women" said that the
advent of socialism would cause wom-
en to forsake the drudgery of home
life and become important factors in
the economic system.
Mrs. Stokes explained this idea by
giving examples of the kindergarten
and baby gardens which help the poor
women of the cities to raise and prop-
erly care for children, as well as be-
come workers in the industrial world.
With the government assuming con-
trol of public institutions, such as fac-
tories, gas works, coal mines, etc., a
system will become perfected by which
women may be able to work and at
the same time have their children bet-
ter educated and cared for than is
possible under the present system.
