scarcity and tendency to higher prices I
found several small lots of merchandise

FRkD Stone, appearing in "John
ny Get Your Gun," will be the
feature at the Rialto today and
for the remainder of this week.
Stone has a role in which he plays
the part of Johnny Wiggins, a cow
boy motion picture actor who has
been commissioned by Bill Burn
ham, his chum, to assume his name,
prevent the marriage of Bill's sis
ter to a fortune hunting count and
to look after her fortune until he
(Bill) getts out of jail. How Johnny
fulfills his ' mission forms a story
which must be seen in its cinema
development to appreciate fully.
The picture was directed by Donald
Crisp and the support is excellent.
Stone has a number of his famous
acrobatic stunts in action in the
A woman who defies the world
for her ideals is Theda Bara in "The
Siren's Song," which is to be shown
at the Sun theater beginning today.
The star plays the part of a young
fishermaid of Brittany. Spurned by
her lover, she makes her way to
Paris, where her voice wins fame
and fortune. It also brings to her
a man who loves her truly. She
lives with him until her girlhood
lover reappears. Under the guise of
religious fervor, he weans her away
from the man who has brought
happiness into her life. By prac
ticing her artful wiles upon him,
the unhappy girl discovers that his
religious zeal is merely, a cloak to
hide his hypocrisy.
Paris of the early 19th century
was brought to and built "some
where in New Jersey" for the film
ing of Victor Hugo's greatest melo
drama, "Les Miserables," in which
William Farnum portrays the part
of the immortal Jean Valjean. It
is being shown at the Muse.
Martin Johnson's amazing film
revelations of savage life in the
South Sea Islands will be shown at
the Brandeis theater for four days,
beginning Sunday, May 11. There
are several different tribes, all of
whom are cannibals, very black,
very shiny, of a light build, with
thick wooly hair, flat noses and ex
pressions ranging from the ferocity
of the chief, to the shy children
posing half proudly, half willingly.
The lack of clothes is a shock to
some in the audience, and yet the
naked young girl of the Solomon
Island is as free from self-consciousness
in her ear-ringed estate
as she is unaware that clothes is a

with the brief program offered by

"Those wonderful Barrymores!"
That is an exclamation quite preva
lent now among playgoers and the
reason for the wonder is not far to
seek. It is a bit unusual for one
family to be represented in a most
distinguished fashion irf a profession
by three members, all of them
youthful. Which comment is called
to mind by the announcement that
Ethel Barrymore is to make her
welcome reappearance here, after an
absence of several years, at the
