THE HEW . PLAYS
In the Village.
By CHARLES DARNTON.
k-T Is kindness rather than charily
that John Galsworthy has put
Into "The Pigeon," much llic
tame sort of kindness that moves
you, perhaps, to give a coin to the
pocr beggar who sidles up to you In
ji dark street, feeling It may do lilm
,xrnc good and knowing it can do you
no harm. You are likely to get this
notion at the Greenwich Village The
atre, where Edward Goodman's pro
duction or the sympathetic play com
Fares favorably with the one els en
It by Winlhiop Amos at the Little
Theatre ten years ago.
Galsworthy would doubtless .hrlck ,
from the thought of chjritj, or at aoy
rate consider it as something far be
yond his means. If we are to Judge by (
hi "Pigeon," a palotcr with only '
enough money to keep his daughter
and himself in the humblest clrcum- ,
tances. Vet. this simple phllanthro- ,
plat shelters a rummy old cabman,
who has been driven Into the dltcb by
motor cars, a floner girl with her1
moral sense forced to the level of the
streets, and a French vagabond who j
not only accepts his lot as inevtlablo
but is inclined to dory ln.lU They
aic like so many stray,- mangy dogs
from the London Embankment. What
Is to bo done for them, since tbey will
do nothing- for themselves?
No one can deny the daughter's r-g-ument
that they nre all rotters. Uut
-The Pigeon" cannot forget they rc
only human like himself, und so he
permits himself to be plucked. The
"cabby" drinks Ills benefactor's whis
key, the vagabond makes love to the
girl, and after having- her fling! wit''
the rascal she throws herself into the
rlrcr, only to be dragged out nnd ear
ned off to the nearest police station.
ll these discouraging circumstances
.lie accepted by the painter, who,
cheerfully procewln to move to l
cheaper quarters us a result of them ,
The play Is an Inlet estlng study n'
character, little more, and It Is well
acted. t'or one thing. Whllfoid Kane
makes the painter a homespun char- I
acter suggesting much In common
witli the people about him and neve-patronizing-
them by carrying kind
ncss too far. The truth of li s pci
foi-mance nlon.-s for It3 possible mo

THE Equity l out with a state
ment from Kxccutixc Secretary
Glllraore opposing the plan to i
double the tax on theatre tickets to 1
raise money for tho cs-Horvlcc men's
bonus. Such action, Mr. Glllmorc as- j
erta, would throw thousands of ac-1
$ora out of work.
iIThe Equity Is not opposed to the
tonus for ex-service men," says he.
"Tho acting profession ,has always
aympathtzed with these men In uen
cral, and our members have partici
pated In countless benefits to ralsp
funds for sick or jobless veterans. Uut
we think It most unfair that the bonus
hould be raised by a plan which pro
poses to double tho tax on our Indus
trjnwlthout nny provision to get In
cimo from tho hundreds of other in
dustries which arc equally available as
. sources of revenue. As citizens we ex
pect to bear our fair sharo of the
bonus taxes, but wo resent unfair discrimination."
