Aida Brines Laughter andQ
Tears to Her Many Large
By ADELAIDE KENNEKLY.
ITTLK AIDA is here! Norma
Talmadee is the leading woman
in "The Moth." but to me that
four-year-old baby, Aida, is the
; whole show, even though she
takes a small part.
, Why? ,
; Because I know Aida. She is one
of the most talented, temperamental
(not temper), lovable children I have
ever known. She is one of the few
baby actresses who is not commer
cialized by her mother.
In a cozy apartment on Ninety-fifth
street, between Central Park and
Broadway, lives Mrs. Alicia Armond
and her gifted little daughter, Aida.
Through the windows of this apart
ment, facing the south, dawn breaks
every morning and it matters, not
whether sun or rain, snow or sleet
brings in the new day, it is a wonder
ful day to Aida. Her exclamation is
always cheery: . , '
"Oh, mother I Isn't this a wonderful
Aida knows nothing of the dark or
sordid side of life. Her mother has
guarded against such a marto her
baby child. She plays only with the
"stars" and is never allowed to come
in contact with the ruffians who
drift to (and oftei play in) moving
Frequently Aida and her mother
go to the poor folks on Blackwell's
Island, where, the child sings, dances
and recites poems to entertain the
unfortunates.. She takes great inter-

side because they all love her,
Pavlowa, the Dolly Sisters, the
Hawaiian dancers and a dozen others
have held Aida's undivided attention
Q She Does the Temperamental
Dance of Pavlova; Also
during their performances. The fol
lowing day Aida closes the door ol
her room and in a few minutes, bursts
forth with: "Oh, mother! I, can
dance Pavlowa," or whoever she has
been trying to imitate.
To the music of a victrola the child,
in costume, changes from the artistic
dances of the world-famed artists "To
the jiggely-wiggely Hawaiian move
ments. From the light, amusing verses of
James Whitcomb Riley at which her
audience laughs, Aida switches to
such sentimental, dramatic things as
"Michael Flynn" and not a person
can keep back the tears. When she
pleads with Michael Flynn to end the
strike that her child may have bread,
she says: "As much as I hate you.
Michael Flynn, I love my child," and
you want to weep and grab the child
and love her and kiss her and do all
sorts of wild things which her care
ful mother would not permit. Wher
she recites the "Tar Tangled Ban
ner" a slacker would feel patriotic
"The Moth" is Aida's first picture
she had acted in several since, but it
was not work for herjust a big play

I am not advertising "The Moth" or
I should be writing about Norma

I love little Aida and I want pthers
to know just a wee bit about this
baby Bernhardt in embryo when
they see her in "The Moth."

The two melting pots are full and
bubbling over and the committee has
decided to empty tnem ana retain ine
Dots a week longer, bo many inter
esting things have been donated that
a number of people think they should
hold an auction and sell them for the
war relief fund rather than melt them.
A gold pencil with an amethyst at the
end which was carried by one of the
officers in the civil war, a lovely coral
brooch evidently an old heirloom, sev
eral beautiful ivory toilet articles and
numerous other things that are very
interesting are reposing in the pots.
The annual Christmas party given
by the Junior club will not take place
this winter; in fact the club does not
expect to give any dances, owing to
the fact that a great majority of the
members are in the service and tliose
who remain do not feel that it would
be right to have social doings with so
many of their number fighting for

"Scarlet Bonnet," a two-act play in
which there were five little queens,
under the direction of Miss Mary
Wallace, proved to be a pleasant bit
of entertainment Friday night at the
First Congregational church, bazar.
The story was simple that of an
old-fashioned boarding school, with
the Misses Dorothy Guckert and
Dorothy Sherman in the role of
maiden ladies. They were costumed
in basques and lace caps and acted
their parts admirably. Charlotte Mc
Donald and Polly Robbins, two little
blonds, were entered as "guests" at
the school and their extreme youth
was more natural than affected.
Maude Brown, in the role of "Miss
Gordon, the aunt," had the grace of
a grande dame and shows signs, of be
coming a real actress.
'A free will offering of $9 was proof
of an appreciative audience. .
The bazar as a whole was reported
to be a financial success by the La
dies' society of . the . First . Congrega
tional church, under whose' auspices
it was given.
