byy Evelyni (iamuhil

c'hicago, Ill., Daily ribunle.
A striking European novelty
is Schiichtl's Royal Wonderettes.l
Little figures so natural it is
hard to believe they are wood
andt wax- -acrobats, dancers,
wizards, a skeleton that disin-
tegrates aind takes form again;
a frog that turns into a beauti-
fiul lady anld a lady who turns
into ane automobile; an ostrich
[hat lays a huge egg. It hatches
and out comeIs a (dragonl spit-
ting fire and devouring every-
thing available until a cannibal
breaks hlim to saddle; a clown
transformed into a balloon and
a clown who becomes an aero-
plane, It is qluite the mnost
marvelously ingenious and in-
teresting, laughable and delight-
tul lfeaturte of its kind. In Eu-
rope such *shows within shows"
are much more frequent than
here, acid this climax novelty
of the European stage is a de-
lieiht to old and young alike.

The person producing a thou-

this week is hidden somewhere
in the rafters of the stage be-
'_nd countless little strings.
Schichtl's Royal Marionettes is
the act of acts at the show
house at Hill and Seventh.
Mechanically the sketch is
perfect. The puppets do a
serves of acrobatic feats, dances
and specialties that far out-
ranlk anything else on the bill.
Sehichtl has several innovations
that give the impression of in-
ner movements rather than,
string pulling. The act isn't
of tile slapstick variety usually
given in these "dumb shows."
There are examples of really
graceful stepns.a

Traking the show on the whole,
tile best act oil the bill this
week is thlat of 'Swchll's Won-

It is a marionette offering, of

There is now at a local then-.

3enting so.ui, win, .le calls won-
lerettes. As a good dumb act
for the lower Keith houses the
performance is interesting, in
heeping; an egg jumps into a
dragon, a man turns into an air-
plane, and a be-hooped lady
changes into an automobile.
Yet it is true: these same
creatures that you laugh at as
stiff and comic-looking things,
somewhat pathetic and stupid.
used to be the tools of a very
serious and beautiful art. But
as with all art which has passed
into fat and vulgar hands, the
marionette has become little
less than an awkward hooligan,
a silly gawk to hoot and gape
at.
