Everyone is out to win in the violin
contest in "Fiddlers Three," coming
tomorrow night to the Whitney. .It
is a big event for both master and
pupil to win the prize for superiority
of instrument and playing.
Among the contestants are the -pupil
of a noted violin-maker and a strang-
er, the violin-maker's daughter's lover.
The rivalry for the grand prize, and
also for the beautiful girl, is keen
between these two. Before the contest
the master himself, becomes convinced
of the superiority of the stranger's in-
strument and just before the con-
test the violins are changed in their
cases. Almost as soon as this has
been done some one mysteriously
changes them back again 'and the girl
marries the one she loves.
In "39 East," coming to the Whit-
ney next Thursday evening, Con-
stance Binney has the role of a west-
ern girl who comes to 'New York to
win fame and fortune as a singer.
Stopping at "39 East," a New York
boarding house, she meets a variety
og characters from numerous gossips
to Napoleon Gibbs, the scion of a
wealthy family. Their courtship be-
gis the first morning at the breakfast
table and is carried on in spite of the
