the offering at both the Moon and

"When the Clouds Roll By" is a
splendid comedy from first to last,
full of lively action and amusing sit

and without a trace of dullness to
mar its entertaining qualities. It
was given its initial showing Sun
day and drew crowded houses.
Rialto "Eyes of Youth," starring
Clara Kimball Young, the offering at
the Rialto this week, drew immense
audiences to this popular house at
all showings yesterday. This is a
story dealing with the problem of
knowing the right thing to ! do

for others or to choose the career

I AT THE THEATERS
TWO years ago "Friendly Ene
mies" evoked considerable
heated debate, and may even to
day draw soma fire along the same
line. It is not, however, a propaganda
play. It debates a serious question,
one that the most ardent of Ameri
cans can appreciate, that of the pre
dicament of a high-minded German
born citizen, who had idealized the
country of his birth, dazzled bv its
greatness, and who honestly belived
it was impossible that his kinsmen
could be guilty of the outrages
against humanity laid at Germany's
uoors. ns a ion ior tnis man is pre
sented the other type, the one who
had transplanted not alone his body
but hjs love and allegiance from
Germany to America. . These char
acters are contrasted against a back
ground tilled in with the love of the
son of one for the daughter of the
other, his joining the A. E. F., the
inevitable spy, a plot, and final hap
piness all around. The situation is
well conceived, and is argued with
logic and force, and a complete re
gard for dramatic verity.
A more comDellinsr scene i sel
dom witnessed than the one in which"
the father tries to reason with his
son, pleading with him for Germany,
while the boy remains resolutely
American. And when the old man
finally consents to see his only child
march away to fight against the
fatherland, refusing to bid him good
bye, the tension is far deeper than
that called for by the reported
tragedy of a sunken transport, the
episode on which the plot turns.
The real se'litiment is more power
ful than the mock, and it was. a
genuine tragedy through which Karl
Pfeiffer passed. Bernhardt Nei
mayer plays this role with fine dis
crimination and rare power.
Sam Collins, who has the role of
Henry Block, the other "friendly
enemy," takes it at a light comedy
tempo, and carries it along, even in
its most sober aspect, on a steadily
rising wave of laughter. Miss Anna
Golden is a sweet and alluring June
Block, who becomes a soldier's
bride, and Louise Muldener gives a
perfect picture of the hausfrau.
A large audience assembled at
Boyd's last night and gave its warm
approval to the play, which opened
a four-night engagement there. It
is worth while, even though the oe
casion for its argument has largely
There are many reasons why
"Turn to the Right," which opened
a short engagement at the Brandeis
yesterday, is worth seeing. Perhaps
the chief reason, aside from the
olay's intense comedy and dramatic
appeal, is the impression it leaves.
Aftcrtviewing "Turn to the Right"
in audftnee leaves the theater feel
ing that the world's a pretty good
ole place after all and that no mat
ter what happens, mother-love is
one thing that never changes. This
play will be at the Brandeis again
Laughs predominate, but there's
enough sentiment in the play to
make a powerful appeal to all.
Though a story dealing vith coun
try life, the spirit of the city is
strong. It is a vivid page of life,
dealine with the "old homestead"
and showing the redemption of
crooks through the influence of
good woman. The play is presented
bv a cast including bamuel Keed,
William Foran, Charles W. Good
rich. Maude Huntlev and Mike Don-
lin, formerly a famous base ball
star, but just as good on the stage
as he was on the diamond. Others
who fill their parts well are Rita
Ross. Georee Spelvin, Stephen
Singer, Stuart Fox, Jane Ellison,
Sidney Henderson, Sylvia Field,
Rexford Burnett and Zahrah Offutt.
The principal acts on the bill at
the Orpheum this week are pre
sented by Evelyn Nesbit, assisted
by Jimmy Dunn and Eddie Mo
ran, and Princess Radjah in two
pretentious dance creations.
Interest was manifested yester
day in Miss Nesbit's new song re
vue. The opening scene, of which
a school room reveals Mr. Dunn
as the teacher and Evelyn as a
youngster. In the second scene, she
looks into a crystal ball and en
acts -what she is supposed to see in
the glass. In one she appears as
a woman of the world, discarding
her lover because he is down and
out. "All I want is happiness," she
sings into the crystal, whereupon
she beholds a scene of a mother,
with her baby and husband. "I
see that love is .happiness," she
sings into the glass.
Princess Radjah brings a sumptu
ous setting for her Cleopatra
dance. She plays with a live snake
which appears to bite her and, in
the story, she .dies. The grace and
strength of this dancer are unusual.
The Casting Wards, four gynmasts,
one of whom is a clown, have the
unusual distinction of winning sev
eral encores with an acrobatic act.
The clown is a scream and several
of the feats of others are thrilling.
Sam Lazar and Josh Dale are black
face funsters. Werner and the
Amoros trio offer "Love's Follies"
being a melange of music and jug
gling. Claudia Coleman, "The
Smile Girl," made a splendid im
pression with her everyday charac
terizations of feminine types. Frank
er Wood and Bunne Wyde, for
merly of Omaha, have a pleasing lit
tle satire which evokes a series of
laughs. Kinograms and Topics of
the Day are interesting screen fea
tures of the program.
"The Corner Store," a rural com
edy skit, presented by a company of
real comedians, produced shouts of
glee at the Empress yesterday,
wheVe it is featured on the new bill.
It is brim full of good-natured fun
and comes over with lots of snaD.
The ""Three Society Girls" present
an act in which vocal and instru
mental music is harmoniously com
bined and in good taste. Clifton and
Kramer, live wires, sing, dance and
talk to the delight of all present.
Ben Lynn presents a number of im
personations in an effective fashion.
