H '"PHOTO 'PIAY' OFFERING J FOR.' TOPAV
THE late Theodore Roosevelt,
cx-president of the United
States, who was engaged in
adding to his reputation as one of
the doughtiest of American fighters
in airy field where right seemed to
need a champion, when his untime
ly death resulted, had an important
part in the controversy which de
veloped in New York City soon
after "The Unpardonable Sin," Maj.
Rupert Hughes' well-known book,
was published. With Blanche
Sweet in the leading role, the screen
version will be the attraction at the
Boyd theater for a second week.
Major Hughes, who will always
be grateful to Colonel Roosevelt for
the part he took in defending the
book, remarked not long ago, when
he saw the picture version in New
York, that it would always remain
one of his regrets that Colonel
Koorevelt had not lived to see the
powr for good which had been
evolved from the storyland so strik
ingly presented in the photoplay.
The Lyman H. Howe Travel Fes
tival which started its four-day en
gagement at the Brandeis theater
yesterday, takes the audience upon
a tour of Japan; into the Canadian
wilds on , a canoe fishing trip;
through Yellowstone National park;
into the Italian Alps, where the ski
warriors of democracy are trained;
in looping the loop warplanes over
the city of Washington; down the
mysterious Ocklawaha river in the
Florida glades; and upon a thrilling
adventure in the South seas,' where
huge sea elephants are captured
alive. Characteristic Howe ani
mated cartoons and film novelties
complete the program.
William Stowell, who appears in
the role of "Eagle Ryan" in sup
port of Mildred Harris Mrs. Char
lie Chaplin in "When a Girl
Loves," which will be shown at the
Brandeis theater next Thursday and
Friday only, has added to his many
laurels as a musician by scoring a
distinct triumph as a song writer.
Bfl's ability as a pianist every
body calls him Bill at the studios
is generally known among screen
folk on the Pacific coast, but it was
not until very recently that any
one knew he wrote songs.
Sessue Hayakawa, undoubtedly a
most interesting and virile dramatic
personality of the silent drama, has
never done a stronger characteriza
tion than Goro Moriyama, the role
lie assumes in "His Debt," at the
Muse again today and Tuesday.
The highly emotional and thrill
ing situations in the play afford
this master actor many opportuni
ties for the display of his superior
talents, and he succeeds in making
the character of the Japanese gamb
ler who relentlessly pays "His
Debt," almost uncanny in its vivid
The play emphasizes the racial
differences of the orient and Occi
dent, while in the development is
shown the wide gulf between the
two peoples which can never be
bridged. It shows the relentless,
fatalistic Buddhist and the tolerant
The latest novel of Rex Beach to
be adapted to the screen is "The
Brand," showing at the Rialto the
ater. The story of the play is built
upon the gold rush to Alaska. The
moral and social life of the mining
camps is depicted carefully. The
just'ee meted out to the wrongdoer
in mining camps is the theme of the
THAT sensational musical com
edy hit, "Going Up," which,
broke all records at the Liberty
Theatre, New York, for nearly two
seasons, will be the attraction at the
Brandeis theater lor four days, be
ginning Sunday, June 15th, with a
matinee on Wednesday.
"Going Up" is a veritable comedy
classic presented in a whirl of pretty
girls, modish costumes, mirth pro
voking scenes, visualized and vocal
ized by an incomparable cast of
principals including Bobby Watson,
Mary Lane, Bettie Parker, Lillian
Raymond. Ethel Dale and Jay Dil
lon. E. Merian and his Swiss company
of 50 canines headlines at the
Empress theatre in a pantomine,
"The Territorials Quartered." It
is an excruciating funny dog act.
Mr. and Mrs. . Gordon Wilde,
have a novel silhouette picture and
talking act. They are assisted by
their daughter, Miss Connie, a sing
ing and dancing artist Kelly and
Davus have a reportoire of laughter
compelling songs. "As U Like It,"
is a comedy talking and dancing act
introduced by Davey Jamison. His
exhibition of soft shoe dancing takes
you back to the days of George
Primrose. Hale Hamilton is fea
tured in the photoplay, "Full of
Pep." A "Fatty" Arbuckle comedy,
Outing Chester feature and Pathe
weekly, complete the bill.

of several states, after carefully re-vicw-ng

"The New Moon," Norma Tal
nndte's latest picture, at the Strand
theater, is a story of Russia and
the fight its women are making for
their freedom. The revolutionists
try 'to force the women in the town
to become "naturalized" that mean
ing that every woman between the
ages of 18 and 45 must become the
prooerty of the state and must live
with any man that desires her.
Norma Talmadge as the princess
who was forced to leave her castle
when it was attacked by the anarch
ists, and who assumes the disguise
of a peasant girl, leads the women
to revolt and incites them to follow
her example by refusing to register.
It is a thrilling, absorbing picture
with a tremendous theme.
The production is unusually elab
orate and beautitul, many ot the
scents taking place at court. In the
ballroom scenes, hundreds of ex

ship, advocating the living apart of
man and wiie in order to, as he says,
"escape the contempt bred by too
close an association!"
A thousand and one things can
quite easily happen to a couple
who decide to live out a matri
monial existence based upon such
premises, and it is not difficult to be
lieve that the pace becomes fast and
furhus in a very short time. Com
plications galore occur, some of
uhirh rpsnlve themselves into not
only complicated but uncompromis
ing situations ot the most ludicrous
type, which while being absolutely
innient appear on the surface to be
quite the reverse.
LIFE MEMBER OF
Miss Elizabeth Davidson of
Springfield One of Eight
Decorated for Can
London, June 8. Eight Ameri
can young women have been made
"life associate members" of the
United States Marine corps and
decorated with gold and silver

Portar, New York City; Miss Alice
Collingwood, Endicott, N. Y.
When the young women answered
a request of Maj. Charles P. Gil
christ, commanding officer of the
marines in London, to call at naval
headquarters, they were surprised
to find a detachment of marines
drawn up in salute. Major Gilchrist
informed them of the purpose of
summoning them and after pinning
a brooch on each of the proud war
workers, he handed each a copy of
a letter in which he wrote:
"If it could be done, the men of
the marine detachment would dec
orate you with the Naval Distin
guished Service medal as a token
of our appreciation of the work you
have done in the canteen for ma
rines and sailors at 52 and 40 Gros
venor Gardens, London.
"You have nightly spent hours at
this aruous work, and your invari
able cheerfulness and comradeship
have done much to reconcile us to
our lot of serving behind the fight
"The British hospitality has been
untiring, but it has been our privi
lege to receive at your hands the
genuine American touch which kept
afresh our realization of the charm
and sacredness of 'the best type of
our country's womanhood, which
you so splendidly typify."
