while recessions have occurred In some

MThe PissixiK Show of 1916," at
While 1916 passed some time ago,
the show it left behind is good fun
yet, as was attested by ' the joyfu!
manifestations of tlie multitude as
sembled at the Boyd last night to wit
ness the unfolding of this latest of
the Winter Garden revues to escape
from Broadway. It is in many ways
smarter than any of its predecessors;
at times its humor almost approaches
subtlety, and its travesties never bor
der on the coarse, as some have.
Moreover, the chorus wears clothes
not such as are burdensome, in any
degree, or that entirely conceal the
female forms intended for display, but
lots more garments than some Winter
Garden buds have bloomed in. Its

date strains of a solemn march to the
syncopated noise that keeps "The Pan
Alley" awake at nights, and each of

Ed Wynn is the chief fun maker, but
he is not alone. Belle Ashlin, Elida
Morris, Stella Hoban, Charles Mack
and William Philbrick, Jack Boyle,
William Arnold and Herman Timberg
are along, and they surely know
how to -entertain. Wynn's garage
scene is a scream, while his nonsense
is distributed all through the evening,
