Aa far uptown as One Hundred and

near apartment ho use, not yet r.-ady, for
peufie rK-i la pay rent that is lor
the moment dedicated to dramatic art.
Part of It has been thrown opem to
actors who couldn't find any other place
In which to rehraree. Drnwlng room,

onuroh, I'm told, that 1s making a lit
tle vacation money In the way.
Hare, at least, cmn-fh and stage have
at last got together!
More "novelties" are betng offered In
tha present rehearsal seaeon than ever
before. TMa fact was proved the other
day, when an enterprising theatrical
manager, who wears the same site col
lar aa Oeorge M. Cohan, walked into
the dining room of a well known hotel
and ordered a rehearsal. "When the
guests aren't eating there we're re
hearsing two of our companies In the
room." he confessed. "But don't give It
away. If the guesta knew about
tlfty nilirht want us to give 'em
how during Hie dinner hour."
Aa usual, of course, ail of the thea
tres and halls, not to mention hall
bedrooms, roofs and llre-eerapes, are
given up to rehearsals of plays, songs,
dances and turkey trots. If you hernr
a woman e'.nfrlng anywhere within ear
shot of Long Acre aruare you can
make up your mind that slhe means
business, patloularly "show bualnasa."
WOMAN TRIES HER VOICE IN
The other day, for Instance, people
In the oftlces of tho Iyrtc Theatre were
astonished to hear someone slnglnu In
the lobby downstairs. Investigation
brought out Uie fact that one of tho dramatic requirements and

MAULS ADAMS HAS A LONELY
Miss Maude Adams at present Is con
ducting a rather lonely rehearsal of
the "OhaittMiar" scenery without any
actors to keep her company. This cu
rious "rehearsal" Is necessary because
the production Is going on tour and the
scenery must be made to fit the small
est stage Included In the Itinerary.

which Miss Adams will appear are 1n

TRAILS THE MILKMAN IN EARLY
Rehearsals at the Hudson Theatre-of
"Snobs," a comedy by Oeorge Rronson
Howard, have already developed amus
ing difficulties. JYank Mclntyre. who
has the leading, role, plays a milkman
m the first act, and for that reason he
haa been going to bed very early In
the morning for weeks past. He has
appeared along the principal milk rout?i
of the city at unearthly hours In the
hope of running down a milkman with
a suit of clothes that would "dress the
part" satisfactorily. But every time he
sneaks across the street and speaks to
a driver the man eyes him suspiciously
and then whips up his horse. In the
same play Regan Hughston haa the
part of a fireman, anil for days he has
been prowling about foundries In search
of a thoroughly realistic outfit. He
finally rnn across a fireman whose
clrrthes were grlmv enough to suit
lumper. BUt an orrer or .. ror Hie
badly damaged clothes was too much
for the honest worklngman. "If you'd
said two .lollurs I'd have let you have
'em." said ihe fireman. "Hut five why.
say. you sure are dippy! Now beat it.
or I'll beat you with tills," and he
raised a ten-foot poker. The terrified
actor "beat It."
