A review, by Leonard Hall.
According to a recognized classifi-
cation, the art of the stage is confined
to legitimate drama and the more
effete dances, with burlesque, the
near-art lagging in the rear, while
vaudeville is billed witn te movies.
The boisterous gaiety of the four-a-
day is for those people wno go to a
"show," and as shows go the Mime's
Spotlight Vaudeville of last night was
eminently satisfying. All the familiar
standbys of the varieties were there,
the ventriloquist and his versatile
doll, the jazz orchestra, the soft shoe
shufflers, the song and dance man,-
all were in evidence except for the
hardboiled wisecracker.
The Goldman cousins, Bernard, '27,
and Bernard, '29, performing enthusi-
astically, on the piano, and vocally,
took the first prize, a silver loving cup
on the vote of the audiences of the +
two performances. F. Ford Schott,
the ventriloquist and Joe the doll, ran
second. Donegal and Sstock, late of
"Tambourine" stepped through a
series of eccentric dances and took
the house with an ecstatic Charleston.
A review, by Edward Heyman.
Another play of the younger, yeasty
generation. Our poor sons and daugh-
ters of today have been preached at,
ragged and damned unmercifully.j
And Edgar Selwyn has written the
most sermon-wise thesis of all. As
soon as the curtain rises one knows
what to expect; the blase, sophisti-
cated daughter who smokes gold tip-
ped cigarettes andf sips a few golden
cocktails; the doting father who finds
Philadelphia business trips a nice ex-
cuse for spending the week-end in
New York; the hagard mother who
despairs of family conditions and de-
ides to step out herself; and finally
the man about town, the great lover,
whose bachelor apartments remind
one of the women's smoking room in
a theatre.
Of course both daughter and
mother fall victim to the charm of
this supper Don Juan and are dis-
covered in his apartments by father,
who incidentally is supposed to be in
Philadelphia. It is all very trite and
absurd; only the ending saves it from
utter hoplessness. The final curtain
falls on an unhappy situ&tion-which
deserves a loud bravo, for American
audiences are very sensitive about
realistic endings.
"Dancing Mothers" as a play is very
poor; as entertainment fair. The lines
are theatrical but effective, and Mary
Young does wonders in the impossible
role of the mother. She is a convinc-
ing actress and deserves better parts.
Dorothy Burgess as the daughter
drinks, smokes and swears only as a
stage flapper would do. Once or twice
she shows signs of better things, and
William P. Carleton is satisfactory as
the husband. John Halliday might
have been equally as good in that
part, only he was cast as the heart
breaking bachelor. He seems a bit
out of place there.
The play is bound to be popular. Mr.
Selwyn knows how to please our
modern audiences, but then it has
been said that they are very easily

Ten or twelve hours a day toils the coolie. If hc
carries all he can, he moves one ton one mile ira
one day. For that he receives twenty cents.
Cheap labor! Yet compared with our American
worker, receiving at least twenty-five times as much
for an eight-hour day, the coolie is expensive-labor.
In America we move one ton one mile for less than
one cent. The coolie, working by hand, accomplishes
little; while the American, with electricity's aid,
accomplishes much.
Plenty of electricity and cheap electricity -these
are two great advantages which America enjoys
over the rest of the world. While our present gener-
