THIS AND THAT OF THE RIALTO
The untimely departure of The
Rockford Players has left the theaters
dark this week- for the first time
since their advent. And except for
Comedy Club's production of "Meet
the Wife," this condition would seem
to be chronic. Wouldn't you know
that after having weathered the so-
called Lenten slump with impunity,
the dramatic season would go to
smash, just when it might be expect-
ed to put forth something new and
worthwhile.
"Meet the Wife"-which will be re-
membered as the show Lynn Starling
wrote for Mary Boland-will be given
all next week in the Mimes theater.
Phyllis Loughton will probably do the
Mary Boland part and Thomas Doug-
all and Robert Wetzel will also be
present in the cast. Nothing else is
promised.
* * *
The choice of "Meet the Wife" for
the next attempt at the elevation of
campus drama was comparatively sud-
den, since Farquhar's "The Beaux
Strategem," or some other revival was
originally planned. Considering the
success of Mr. Tyler's all-star pro-
ductions of ".iplomacy" and "She
Stoops to Conquer," this would have
been a very happy choice, and an in-
teresting attempt at least. However,
a conflict in dates necessitated the
change of the Lynn Starling play,
since it will have to be done in a
week's time. Mimes still has nebu-
lous longings to do "The Masque and
the Face," "Young Woodley," "Desire
Under the Elms," (or; some other
O'Neill play) "Beggar on Horseback"
or something like it. Of these "The
Masque and th Face" is the most like-
ly to see light, although definite an-
nouncement will come soon, since they
will probably follow Comedy Club in
the theater.

"BAD GIRL": A Novel by Vina Del-
mar. Harcourt, Brace and Company,
New York, 1928.
With drum and trumpet, blurb and
bombast, the Literary Guild hails this
first novel as a saga of Harlem, a
song of the common people and a
generally remarkable performance.It
sounded, to us, more like a handbook
of advice to expectant mothers.
It is a kindly practice to be lenient
in criticising the maiden efforts of a
! novelist, and, from the standpoint of
writing, this work will easily pass
muster. But the book as a whole is
pointless, inconsequential and without
much interest after the first novelty
of the subject wears off.
The volume, of a very personal and
obstetrical nature, will undoubtedly
be a big success, especially if the
authorities of Boston ban it. But even
the greatest popularity can never con-
vince us that a work dealing with the
feelings and thoughts of a radio re-
pairman's wife during the months pre-
ceding the birth can make an import-
ant novel.
L'Enfant Terrible ...
STILL MORE REVIVALS AND SUCH
THINGS
Of all the revivals of the season,
"Volpone," which is the latest offer-
ing of the Theater Guild, is accorded
the best, judging from the number of
"rave" reviews appearing the morning
following. With the cheering for
"Strange Interlude" and "Marco Mil-
lions" hardly subsided, this seems to be
a final jaunty and slightly rakish fea-

ther in the Theater Guild's cap. It
will alternate with those plays at the
Guild's various playhouses.
Coming almost simultaneously with
this, is the announcement that New
York has been a bit churlish in its
reception of "The Beggar Opera,"
which Arthur Hopkins rescued some
time ago from the college classics, and
which was quite well liked in the
provinces. Quite the reverse has been
the fate of Winthrop Ames, Gil-
bert and .Sullivan revivals, which
were popular in the city, but which i
have lost money on the road.
Still another revival, this time of a(
less pretentious sort, is Harry Wag-
staff Gribble's "March Hares," done
over by the Little Theater at their
44th street theater on the South Side.
Although Greater New York was
rather unsociable during its visit
seven years ago, Mr. Gribble's sophis-
ticated bit of irresponsibility was re-
ceived in an atmosphere of loving cups'
and fatted calves.

SKILL

HE twist of the wrist, the
"throw" of the arm, the shifting
of the weight-these are among the
many little points which make the
skill that you admire in the javelin
thrower as he hurls the shaft two
hundred feet or more..
As on the track or the football
field, inthe gymnasium or on

of an inch here-a minute variation
in a curve there-slight changes
foreseen by engineers and carried
out by skilled workmen.
It is this attention to detail that
is constantly iiproving General
Electric apparatus and contributing
to the electrical industry, which,
though still young, is already
a dominant force, increasing
profit and promoting success
in every walk of life.
