Reformed Jail Fugitive
Gets 30-Day Parole
CLEVELAND, July 28. - (P) -
Carlton B. Chilton, 41, who es-
caped from an Oklahoma reform-
atry 23 years age, received today
from Gov. E. W. Marland, of Ok-
lahoma, a 30-day parole.
Chief Police Prosecutor Perry
A. Frey said Marland, by long dis-
tance telephone, paroled Chilton
to him for that period.
"Nothing will be done about
this man until I have had an op-
pertunity to make a thorough in-
vestigation," Frey quoted the gov-
ernor. "That will take about 30
days. Meantime I will place his
welfare entirely in your hands."
The prosecutor, in requesting a
parole, said Chilton's record since
walking to freedom from the re-
formatory, where he had served
part of a two-year term for bank
burglary, proved he hadrestab-
lished himself "as a respected,
law abiding citizen."
"If you feel you can commute
Chilton's sentence and parole
him to me," said Frey, "I'll be
glad to take the responsibility."
The prosecutor wired Marland
a request last night for an abso-
hue pardon for Chilton.

-At least seven persons were
killed today when a west bound

Antique Shops Raided In Hunt
For 'The Old Maid's' Properties
(Continued from Page 1
Never before has so much research
into portraiture and history been so
"The Old Maid," is a poignant story
of little old New York when 90th St.
was considered a long ways out into
the country and Grammercy Park
was the dwelling place for the aris-
tocrats. This period,. when women
wore hoop skirts and immense bon-
nets and men wore brightly colored
tail coats and top hats, make a very
charming and romantic background
for a drama.
It was thle day of illuminating gas
and brownstone houses, of beautiful
but proper ladies and descendants of
those sturdy Dutchmen who came
over with Peter Stuyvesant. At that
time the poor people lived around
14th St. and 12th St. and the paupers
lived in Greenwich Village. They
were people who had made them-
selves a force in business by always
doing things properly. They believed
in formality and the strict adherence
to conventions. Their society was
rigid and impregnable-and into the
midst of all this came "Charlotte
Lovell," 'a young girl who was indis-
creet enough to have an illegitimate
Accordingly, "The Old Maid," is
not "old" throughout the .tragedy.
Two thirds of the play is devoted to
her youth. The story opens upon
the boudoir of Delia Lovell as her
maid arranges her wedding dress on
the eve of her marriage. At that
time, her cousin Charlotte Lovell is
21 years old.
That is in 1833. In 1854 the two
women have grown old: Delia grace-
fully and beautifully, while Charlotte
has developed into a sour, bitter old
maid as the result of her earlier mis-
Alexander Wyckoff, the Art Direct-
or for the Players, unlike the New'
York production whose sets featured
the late fifties and seventies, has
moved his sets back into the original
period of the play, which is in the
thirties and the fifties. Mr. Wyckoff
did this because he feels the original
period captivates the mood of the
simple life to better advantage.
"The period itself wasn't half so
cluttered up," Mr. Wyckoff said. "It.
was a more reserved style."
Still, the period was one almost of
elaborate painting and Mr. Wyckoff
has used a design of Chinese wall-
paper, which was a descendant from
the Colonial days, in the Ralston
hallway, while, in Delia's boudoir, he
has used French wallpaper. Since
the old Lovell home on 91st St. and
East River was out in the country,
and was probably of Dutch colonial
design, Mr. Wyckoff imagines it to
be big and rambling, but not high.
Therefore, one can get an impression
of its stokiness from Delia's boudoir.
On the other hand, in the grand
salon of the luxurious Ralston home
in Grammercy Park, Mr. Wyckoff
has designed a huge, quite spectacular.
room whose austerity is accentuated
by enormous columns.
"It is very simple to get the austere
quality of such an upholstered life,"
Mr. Wyckoff continued.
Charlotte Lovell conducted her day
nursery above the Lovell stables in
the rear of her grandmother's house
in Mercer Street. News of this sort
still exist in New York. Mr. Wyckoff
has tried to make the woodwork, and
the type of windows just as Char-
lotte Lovell might have had it done
when she converted it into her
nursery. According to the novel, this
structure would have been a block
from Broadway at Canal Street.
The period costumes for the show
demanded an enormous amount of
three needles were broken when the
stitching was first begun on it. The
original stitches were so tiny that
they were entriely invisible to the eye.
Ruth Le Roux as "Delia," will wear
it in the last episode. The dress was
completed in five days.
The costume made in record time
was another gray one to be worn by
Sally Pierce as "Charlotte Lovell." It
was made in less than two hours,
having been cut in the afternoon of
the first dress rehearsal and ready
that evening for the performance.
Both ,Miss Pierce and Miss Le Roux
will change for each of the five epi-
Miss Cohen herself tailored two of
the men's suits, worn by Robert
Campbell as "Joseph Ralston"; and
one with powder-blue trousers and
a bright blue tail-coat, one a deep
brown tail-coat with beige trousers,
worn by Karl Nelson as "James Rals-
The entire cast had difficulty in be-
coming accustomed to their grand-
parents' wearing apparel. It took th
girls three dress rehearsals to learn
how to walk in long hoop skirts with-
out tripping. The actors also learned
that even affection cannot be dis-
