"Checkers" Is going to make, a
great hit. It Is one of those real
American comedies, full of humor of
tho live kind nnd with the easy
slang of tho upper classes that has
nlways mndo n hit on tho stngc.
The Pollards will put this piece on
for the first time tomorrow night.
They nil hnvo parts that suit them
to a "T" and Alfred doubling ns tho
well-educated but "broko" youth will
show at his very best.
There Is a famousilno at the end
of the second net that will appeal to
everybody. Sitting on a barrel, ar
rayed In overalls us a grocer's ship
ping clerk, Alfred doubling quoins
with a whimsical smile, "S-y, It's
hell to be broke."
And he has reason to mako his In
fernal comparison, for ho lovc3 a
girl, tho girl loves lilm, nnd tho fath
er of, the gir wants to see flvo thou
sand dollai-3 in tho bank account of
tho aspiring son-in-law beforo ho
gives his consent.
"Checkers" gets the flvo thousand
by- betting on nn outside horse at
tho race-track In Chicago. He wins
tho girl and her father's confidence
by n "coup d'etat" lu tho Inst act
after ho has mado his one best bet.
Theic Is a run on the old man's bauk
and ono 'depositor Is hastening to
withdraw his wad, which amounts to
thlrty-lWo thousand dollars, when
