Mlaa May Kubson, who ha been
delighting large audlencea at ' the
Urand.-ls with her new play, "Moth-
era Mlllion," will remuln over to
night for an extra and final perform
ance. Miss Kobson does not ua a rule
play Bunday performances and it
took a deal of coaxing on the part of
the local management to induce her
to make an exception this evening,
but she finally ngreed to in order to
accommodate the hundreds who hud
been unable to secure tickets.
The Kobson engagement for the
past several years hue been for a full
week, but due to the fact that Miss
Itobson's contract Is always signed al
most a year In advance, it was this
year reduced to three days to make
room for the vaudeville policy on the
first four days of the week, which
has long since been abandoned due to
it failure in Kansas City.
"Mother's Millions" is the best play
which has been offered at the Bran
dela in several seasons and undoubted
ly the best in which May Kobson has
ever appeared. As a long Broadway
run is planned for the piece, which
has not been offered in New York as
yet, this may be the last opportunity
for local patrons to see Miss Kobson
for several years to come.
Three heudllners mark the bill open
ing nt the World next Saturday.
Hilly (Swede) Hull assisted by Jennie
Colborn presents a character gem call
ed "Hilda." "Stepping Some" is a
dance creation with Herman Wanlura
(initiated by Alice Manning and the
iJyer Bisters- A versatile trio Is Hoss,
Wyse and Toney Wyser.
Thirty-one years have rolled away
since Reginald PeKoven produced
"Robin Hood." During these 31 years
the musical "sensations" announced
by gifted press agents have been plen
tiful.' But now look at 'em! Most of
them died in mere infancy. Who can
recall what was being offered five
"Robin Hood" returns to remind us
of the refined entertainment of ma and
pa, well sung, well played, pleawlngly
staged. If demand for encores mean
anything, the opera can still hold its
own in popular responsiveness with
the best of the newer musical produc
tions. . It loses nothing at the hands
of jthoae who sing the story, of tbe
heroic outlaw. May Valentine's pre
' aentatlon of "Robin- Hood" will be here
at the Brandels theater, two days only,
Saturday and Sunday, December 8 and
10, with matinee Saturday.
Among protean players Doc Baker
is in a class by himself. At the
Orpheum for the current week he is
to demonstrate his remarkable facility
In the quick change of costumes. He
la the star of an amusing revue called
"Flashes," and brings with him not
merely an elaborate production, but
also an excellent company. Polly
Walker, who is featured with him, has
the reputation of being vaudeville's
most beautiful girl. Others in the act
are Bud and Jack Pearson. . "The Old
Family Tin Type" is the title of the
comedy skit which la to be presented
by Qhlck Torke and Roso King as a
featured act of the show. The act
is a novelty of a decidedly humorous
character. Frank Fisher and Eldrle
Gilmore do an absurd bit of fun mak
ir.g called "Her Baahful Romeo."
Hector, a most intelligent little dog,
la the leader of a quartet of canine
actors. The comedy pantomime of the
eccentric juggler, Jack Hanley, is a
distinct novelty. One a cowboy and
the other an Indian, Harry Smith and
Jack Strong are described as possess
ing "golden voices from the golden
west." Herbert and Dare demonstrate
that the prime factor in athletics Is
ease of execution. A screen feature is
t'i be a new edition of the cartoon
i Mule, Aesop's Fables. Topics of the

1922 girls at the Emprcns for three
days starting Thursday. This act will !
be found well costumed and colorful in
design and mode of presentation. Num

personalities will be introduced, and
in every sense, It is anticipated, that
the act will prove itself a genuinely
nrtistic bit of stage production.
The afterpiece In vaudeville, which
1m primarily any Orpheum innovation,
ib to be given one of its cleverest in
terpretations this week by the entire
company that Is to play the Orpheum
theater. Appearing in this extra act
will be "Doc" Baker and his entire
"Flashes" company, Chick Torke and
Rose King, Fisher and Gilmore, Smith

"The Old Fashioned Tin Type," with
the co-operation of "Doc" Baker and
his 10 assisting artists. It is an
uproarious travesty, first showing a
"poso" In which Mr. Yorke introduces
his "aunts and nieces' In the next
'pose" he introduces his "four uncles."
After these introductory scenes the
ensemble is heard in a comedy ar
rangement in the sextet from
"Lucia." A routine of comedy, songs
and dances follows In succession, giv
ing this extra act all the requisites of
a little production.

'Flashlights of 1923" company at the
Gayety theater twice dally this week

Abroad." Abe Leavitt, its author- has
filled it with comedy lines and situa
tions. William K. Wells and Jack
Strauss are the lyricists and Melville
Morris and Ruby Cowan, the compos
ers. Dancei In profusion are scattered
throughout the piece. Jack Callahan
with his acrobatic dancing specialty
is said to be nothing short of marvel
ous. Kugenie LaBlanc Is another dan
clng favorite, her wooden shoe clog
ging being about the best in its line
on the American stage. Kddle Shu-
bert Is the featured comedian. Sarah
Hyatt, the prima donna, possesses a
lyric soprano voice. Ann Myers 1 an
other good looking young lady who
can also alng, her specialty being syn
copated music. I. B. Hump and Kay
Paine offer a pleasing variation to the
program in their comedy singing and
talking act. An active chorus of 20
young and pretty girls completes the
well rounded cast. Today's matinee
Etarts at 3.
"Something different" Is promised
by Karyl Norman, who comes to the
Orpheum next week to present "The
Creole Fashion Plate" as one of the
stellar attractions. This offering Is to
divide the headline honors with the
one-act comedy, "Fields' Family Ford."
The notablo Russian dancer, Ivan
Bankoff, who appears with Beth Can
non In "The Dancing Master'" Is to
contribute one of the featured parts
of the show. Presented by Billy Fraw

Dance and Religion Have Close
Relation, Says Ruth St. Denis
The reverence with which Ruth Ht.
Denis and Ted Khawn, who with
their company of dancers will be awn
st the Itrandels theater, Decemlier 14.
under the susplcr of the Amer.
Iran Legion auxiliary, view their
work, Is expressed not only In tilr
dance creations, but In their artive
missionary work to bring about a
better understanding between the
iluirrh and the arts.
Not so Ion ago Mr. Khawn, with
the asilxinnce of three of the Icnl
shawn dancers, Interpreted an entire
church service, including the rending
of the scripture lesson and the ser
mon, in dunce form, to the great
plesiure not only of the congregation,
but the approval of the clergy.
"Long ago, at the beginning of
time, as we ran remember It," Miss
Ht. Denis explained, "all rtt'fs ond
all creeds used the dance In their re
ligious ceremonluls: In fnct, th dnnce
wos used for no other purpose. In
the years that have Intervened, how
ever, the dunce hM erroneously be
come so divorced from all forms of
worship, that the church has come to
denounce this form of art and, In
many cases, to forbid It to Its fol
lowers. Kor hundreds of ysnrs now the
church has nvde a benlsnant but
firm line between itself and most of
the other arts. This has resulted
In a loss not only to the church, but
to the arte as well, for they link
that deep religious feeling without
which, no creation, no mailer how
wonderful, Is truly great."
Miss bt, Denis and Mr. Hhawn at
tinded a conference of world artists
In London who are planning a palace
of arts, to establish an understand
ing between the different arts, In
cluding the art cf religion.
