Charley Ray on Deck
At the Arcade today Charles Ray
is appearing in his customary type of
picture, "Peaceful Valley." Ray's por-

youth are always quite interesting.

"Little Miss Charity," a musical
comedy of pleasing charm, opens at
week's engagement today at the Schu-
bert-Detroit theatre. The plot dealsf
with a young woman of immense1
wealth who wishes to establish a city
of perfect content, and who unknow-
ingly puts her plans in charge of aI
band of crooks. A most interesting,
stage effect is created in the last act
in the reproduction of the whole con-
tented city with its factories and,
model houses.

takes 'the part of a dashing football
hero, and later that of a hanm actor in
an amateur performance. Phyllis
Haver and a number of other Mack
Sennett beauties are in the supporting
cast. At the same time there is being
exhibited "Milestones," a photoplay
with a special cast and of vivid inter-
est. The theme deals with the fact
that as people grow older they forget
all about their youthful experiences,
or do not want to remember them. The
picture is well produced, and the
characters almost live for their audi-
Dorothy Gish turns up at the Arcade
on Wednesday in an airy story entitled
"Flying Pat." It's one of these pic-
tures in which the hero and heroine
marry during the opening reel, and as
is usually the case in true life, the
action results from this inciting force.
