The unified motion picture pro
gram is the newest movement origi
nated and fostered by the best movie
houses in the country. A digpified
entertainment in which each part has
a definite relation to every other part
is the ideal instead ot the oldtime
hodgepodge of features thrown to
aether with no regard for unity or
good taste. An excellent example of
this harmonious arrangement of fea
tures is given this week at the Mrand
theater. Harry B. Watts, manager
of the Mrand, has arranged as an
accompaniment to "The Dancin'
Pool," a delightful dance act and a
ja?z overture. Four saxophones are
added to the orchestra for the over
ture, house lights arc dimmed and
the ' spotlight helps to emphasize
such melodies, as "Stop It," "Slow
and Easy," "Daddy" and "By Jingo."
Seldom is anything as charming as
the dance act which follows shown
in Omaha. Two girls, Miss Ruth
