Walsh is the freshman, while Miss
Fritzi Fritz, is a good foil as the com-
edienne. They are assisted by six
attractive college girls.
Frank Bush will be on the bill.

The second installment of Gloria's
Romance with Billie Burke, which will
be shown at the Arcade today, is en-
titled "Caught by the Seminoles." In
trying to find her way back to her
hotel while lost in the everglades she
arrives at the dwelling of a poor white
family. Gloria's absence having been
discovered, her father and brother,
with a number of others, begin a,

search for the runaway. A large re-
ward is offered for her recovery. Dr.
Royce (Henry Kolker) who admires
Gloria, and Richard Freneau (David
Powell) a young broker hoping to se-
cure the reward, join the searchers.
Gloria at the hut of the poor white
family exchanges her torn dress for
the outfit of a boy. The young son of
the family offers to act as guide to
her hotel. On the way they quarrel
and he misleads her and then leaves

her, and she wanders into a camp of
Seminole Indians. Freneau arrives
at the Indian camp just as the young
chieftain is insisting on marrying
Gloria. Freneau, a coward, is frighten-
ed away and Gloria faints. Just
then Doctor Royce arrives from
another direction and attacks the
Indian. During the fight Freneau re-
turns and carries the fainting girl
away. Dr. Royce follows their trail
and arrives in time to hear Freneau

praised for his rescue of the girl,
which Freneau calmly accepts, Gloria
not knowing to whom it is justly due.
The photography and the settings
of this installment are unusually
pleasing. The events of the story are
interesting and the suspense is well
managed. But the main attraction, and
it is a powerful one, is due to the mag-
netism of the leading lady. The close-
ups are effectively used and a number
of them are of exceptional beauty.
