Pali Lua, whose Hawaiian guitar has
pleased thousands of Americans
through the medium of the phono-
graph, is in Ann Arbor, and assisted
by Julia Anelika, a pretty miss from
the tropics, gives several minutes of
entertainment for the Majestic Theater
audiences. He renders quite a few
numbers of the popular material and
is assisted by the young woman on the
ukelele. She also gives a modified ver-
sion of the hula hula dance, showing
its wierd and grotesque features.
The Ernest Evans and girls troupe
give a very satisfactory exhibition of
modern dancing., They open with the
cake walk and finish with modern and
old style dancing.
"The Cop" is a clever playlet which
brings out human interest qualities. It
puts to the test a man who is in line
for promotion, proves true through
all the difficult features and finally is
declared the winner.
There was quite a lot of fun and
laughs brought out by Clayton and
Lennie as the English chappies.
Lane and Harper have a good sing-
ing and talking act that is called the
"Manicure and the Man."
There will be special glection re-
turns read from the stage tonight and
both shows at 7:30 and 9:30 will be

tickets are good for the shows design-
lated only.

All signs point to the growing popu-e
larity of the costume play-the play a
that is primarily romance, and of allf
the actors fitted to play the part of a
hero of romance not one can equal'

Lou-Tellegen in "A King of Nowhere,"1
by J. and L. DuRocher Macpherson, at
the Garrick Theater, for one week be-
ginning Nov. 6. The scene of the play
is laid in the court of Henry VIIL, who
is old, troubled with gout and torment-1
ed by the ghosts of certain queens{
whom he has caused to be removed1
from this earth when his affections
turned to another.-
One day when boredom sat heavyl
upon him, his courtiers told him of a
prisoner who lay in his dungeon, God-
red., a Celtic knight, whom the wardens,
speak of as king. Seeing a chance for
diversion, Henry commands that the
knight be brought before him. Then
Godred appears, a fearless, powerful
man, skillful alike with his sword and
nimble wit. The king would make
sport of him, but Godred's is the quick-
er wit. He turns the joke back upon
the court, making them all appear
ridiculous. There is a battle royal be-
tween Henry, armed with authority
and his position, and the captive Celt,
who, though defenseless and stripped
of his sword, possesses a will so
strong and charm so great that he
brings old Henry crawling to his feet.
Theodore Harrison, who has charge
of the Glee club, was very optimistic
over the results of the third rehearsal
held last evening in the auditorium of
the School of Music building.
"They have already a swing and
volumn that equals that of last year
after six or eight rehearsals had been
held," was his comment. The back-
bone of the club is definitely made out
novw and all that remains to complete
the personnel is to add a few more
members intorder to properly bal-
ance the parts.

gan Daily.

"The Emperor of Portugallia" is a
story of Swedish peasant life. Its
chief characters are two simple pea-
sants, Jan and Katrina, and their
daughter, Glory Goldie. The action
and the plot of the story concern
chiefly the love of Jan for his daught-
er, Glory Goldie. It is this love which
at first transforms the unthinking, un-
feeling peasant into a fine, keenly sen-
sible man. It is this overpowering
love which later on turns Jan into a
simple-minded, gentle old man who
thinks himself Emperor of Portugal-
lia, the land where there is neither
poverty nor cold nor hunger. It is
when Glory Goldie goes away from
home that Jan becomes the Emperor
of Portugallia. His simpleness is ac-
cepted by the people, who feel sorry
for him in his great affliction. Jan has
also the gift of an inner sight by which
he can see clearly what is, going to
come to pass. The peasanfs believe
that this has been given him in place
of the mortal vision he has lost in
his state of simple-mindedness. lie
knows what Glory Goldie wishes him
to do, and he knows what fate awaits
Lars Gunnarson, a neighbor, who has
virtually murdered his father.
When Glory returns to her parents
after an absence of about 25 years, the
love for her father which filled her
life when she was a small child has
left, and in its place is only the
knowledge that he is a poor, demented
old man who hates her for leaving him
solitary so long. Glory tries to take
her mother away with her to a new
home which she has made in the city.
When Glory and Katrina are on the
boat, Jan comes running down to the
wharf, and seeing Goldie leaving him,
jumps into the water. Finally, Goldie
regains the old love she bore her
father and mother when she was a
"The Emperor of Portugallia" is a
curious story, unreal in its setting, in-
tangible in its atmosphere and action.
It contains that combination of the real
and the unreal which is utterly baf-
fling, but is particularly interesting
as a story for this reason. Some of the
parts of the story are quite delicate,
such as the scene in which Jan waits
outside in the rain for the birth of
his child, in an attitude of utter in-
difference and hardness. When the
child is put in his arms, however, he
is entirely transformed. The whole
story is told with most charming sim-
plicity and delicacy, and with a certain
charm which comes and goes, making
both the most exquisite and the most
brutal shift and change places with
each other.
