Give a Thought to ?
Five Points Playground
There is not much more to the play?
ground at Worth and Baxter streets
than the Five Points. Equipment is
lacking, resting facilities are few, and
the whole playground could be tucked
away in the corner of a good sized lot.
The boys of the neighborhood are a
bit more fortunate than the girls.
They have a small ball rield in Colum?
bus Park. But that isn't large enough.
They want to know why the city
doesn't open up the new courthouse
grounds and give the fellows a chance
tu have a real game.
Miss Florence Jacquerod, supervisor
in charge of the girls who use the
J- ive Points playground, believes the
? reseller of the drug addicts around
the little park waiting to get into the
municipal clinic has a bad effect upon
"It would be fine if the old provost
guard grounds would be thrown open
to the kiddies," she said. "It would
give them a better chance to play and
would keep them off the streets."

To Lack of
Company Has Failed Un?
til Recently to Maintain
Force Sufficient to Han?
dle the New Business
rpHE TRIBUNE has made an
independent study of Neio
York City's mechanical nervous
system, otherwise called the tele?
phone service, which is being in?
vestigated also by the Public Ser?
vice Commission. Many interest?
ing and unexpected facts have
been discovered by inquiry and
observation, and they are set
forth purely for their news in?
To get rid of a feeling of extreme
irritation you say something strong or
vehement. So people have been speak?
ing in anger of the telephone service.
They have been saying that either
the company or the girls, or both, vfcre
practising sabotage?that they were
putting the service "on the bum" for
an ulterior motive.
The company's motive would be to
discredit government ownership by
making everybody disgusted with gov?
The girls' motive would be "economic."
The primary facts are that to handle
an increase of a million or so calls a
day without any increase of physical
plant, which was impossible during the
war, the company has failed until very
recently to maintain, much less to in?
crease, its force of operators.
At present 125 girls a week are being
added to the force. This is rapidly re?
ducing the shortage of 3,000 which the
company contended with eight months
ago. It is still 1,200 short, but expects
to b? "even'' within ten or twelve
week?. Here are employment ligures.

Has Two Phases
This part of the company's problem
has two phases. The first was during
the war. The second is since the ar?
During the first phase, the officials
sa;*, they were helpless. The telephone
service was not a "preferred industry,"
yet it had to meet heavy demands for
both girls and men from the govern?
ment. The "10 per cent plus cost" con?
tractors were bidding up the market.
Since the war ended the officials say
they have been making vigorous ef?
forts to increase the staff, with large
success. The results began showing
months before it was decided to re?
turn the lines to private control.
Wages have been raised 50 per cent
?from $8 to $12 for beginners.
The capacity of the school has been
multiplied by throe, and girls have
?locked in by hundreds.
The company has means o? its own
for finding out what the girls are
thinking about. It does not believe
there has been sabotage on their part.
It finds the same unrest and laxness of
effort that is general and is complained
of by all employers, but nothing more
except the overwork, which has not yet
It pays $12 a week to girls during
the weeks they are learning, and starts
them on the boards at $12.50. Within
fourteen months a girl should be get?
ting $15, and in three to five years $18.
In addition there is overtime pay for
work on Sundays, nights and holidays,
so that the average a girl makes the
first year is $900. This amount in?
creases. Finally there are "anniver?
sary presents" of $25 when a girl has
been on two years, $50 for the third,
fourth and fifth years, and $100 there?
after. The girls who have executive
positions get from $22 to $42 a week,
with the extra pay factors also increas?
ing their wages.
At These Rates
The company says it is now getting
more girls than it can train, and that
it is losing less than a third of its
girls each year, including those who
drop out before they get fairly started.
Only about a third of those who quit?
about one girl in eleven out of the en?
tire force?go into other employment.
There is a constant drain to provide
private switchboard operators also,
During the last quarter of 1918, for
instance, the girls who leTt did so for
the following reasons: Other employ?
ment, 266; other phone work, 198;
home duties, 130; objection to Sunday,
holiday and night work, 82; to be mar?
ried, 76; leaving the city, 36; returning
j to school, 22; total, 899.
A girl's first four weeks are spent
i in learnig the fundamentals of her job.
The company maintains a big school
in Houston Street, which is now capa?
ble of handling 800 girls, and gradu?
ates about 600 a month.
About 50 per cent of the girl? who
apply are able to pass the entrance
tests, which are much the same as the
famous Binet tests, though evolved by
M! Schmidt, the director of the
f"< 1, and in addition tests for sight,
voice and hearing. The latter have
been relaxed lately ajj.d the company
expects to make good the difference by
an ?labor?t?, medical supervision of the
?ore* whic. 'hat b__a newly perfected.

Last Friday the S 0 S went out for
$7,000 to save the vacations of 1,000
boys and girls whose hope of getting
to the country this summer was fast
fading. Since that time old friends jf
the Fresh Air Fund have given
$3,168.55 to the fund.
400 More Get Vacations
At the end of last week it was still
open wide enough, to permit the pas?
sage of 220 youngsters, who romped
through with smiles on their faces an?l
in their hearts. Yesterday there was
still a crack wide enough for ISO moro
to slide through, and through they went,
100 of them'to Eunice Home at Atlan?
tic Highlands. N. J., and eighty to Guild
Farm at New City, N. Y. To-day a
couple more will skip by on their way
to Norwich. N. Y.
Almost one-half of the rescue fund
for the thousand lads and lassies is in
? hand, and almost half of the thousand
have begun their vacations. The oth?r
i half have had their hopes revived; they
wait with anxious eyes to see if st~.ll
other friends will be as kind to them
as some have been to those who have
: already been sent away.
Half of the money received in re?
sponse to the SOS came from two
sources. Six hundred dollars of it
came from Rowland H. Smith, who last
year met an emergency appeal with
the same sort of gift. He is salvaging
the outings of nearly ninety children -

From "The Touchstone." an art mag?
azine, came SI,000 yesterday by sp< -

stone," too, is an old friend of th
youngsters for whom the fund works
and it tripled last year's gift.

On the Screen
"Checkers," With Torn (.'?ir?
rigan in Title Hole. Provides
All Kinds of Real Thrills
Just why some theatres are allowed
to "nave motion pictures and others are
not allowed to have them has not yet
been made plain to us. although we have
heard both sides of the question.
However, the Actors' Equity evi?
dently did not attempt to stop "Check?
ers," the oldtime melodrama which
William Fox has put into the Centra!
Theatre in its screen form.
"Checkers" is not the name of the
horse, as we have always suspected, but
the name of the hero. They called him
so because of the pattern of his cloth?
ing, but one has to take this on faitn,
for lie does not wear them in tin pi
ure. The only thing about his clothes
that might make one suspect that he
was a tout was the fact that lie wore
a white draped band around his hat.
Pert Bariow owns the horse, whose
name is Remorse. In seeking to bring
her fianc? back to the fold she meets
Checkers and decides that it is her
move. Forbidden by her father to
marry Checkers, she escapes from her
room by flinging herself from the win?
dow and landing in a tree, down which
she slides into the waiting arms of her
ostracized lover. They rush away in
a motor car while Remorse is rushed
away in a box car; but Arthur Kendal,
the deserted fianc?, hurries after them
and wrecks the car.
As Pert and Checkers have joined Re?
morse in the box car, they all go into
the river together, which is a good
thing, as the box car was on fire. Of
course, they escape, and, of course.
Pert (what a name!) rides Remorse to
And the villain, having put all his
money on the other horse, is ruined.
So in the evening h? goes with hia
sweetheart to a palace in Chinatown,
where we suspect they smoked opium,
and a big Chinese chief or something
turns a knob in the wall and lets the
bottom out of the couch where he !s
reclining. We wanted a close-up of
the place he dropped to, but that was
Everything else was there, however,
a rescue in a hydroplane and a jump
from a speeding motorcar to a train,
and a lot of others besides.
The cast in all-star, Thomas J.
Currigan is seen, in the title r?le;
Jean Oeker. is Pert; Ellen Cassity, a
lovely blond creature who can act as
well as look, is Alva, the sweetheart of
Arthur Kendal, and Robert Elliott is
To any one who likes melodrama at
its mellowest we cheerfully recom?
mend this new Fox picture. It has a
thrill in every foot,.
A Goldwyn picture called "Hearts?
ease" is at the Rialto. It is a screen
version of Charles Klein's play and its
theme is a lit.ie different from the
usual thing seen in the movies.
Of course we love them and we
should be as disappointod an any one
if they did not turn out exactly as we
expected; still this does no: prevent
us from knowing that any one with a
fairly well-trained movie mind could
see one reel of a picture and write
the r.maining four out of his head
and not have it" differ radically from
Tom Moore is Eric Temple, a young
composer who is persecuted and
robbed and slandered and cuffed
about, and finally turned out into the
rain, with his memery gone, by one of
the villains (oh, yes, there were a
number of villains in this ptcture! ).
Sydney Ainsworth is Sir Geoffrey
Pornfret, who steals Eric's opera ami
has it produced as. his own. It seems
to be at the Metropolitan, although we
didn't suppose from the name, "Hearts?
ease," and the youth of the composer,
that it really was grand opera. It
looked to us like a musical version of
"Sumurun." Anyway, Eric had recov?
ered sufficiently from his bump on the
? head to recognize his own opera when
! he heard it and he got the most beau-'
i tiful revenge on Sir Geoffrey.
A scene was shown of Pomfret di
; recting hi? stolen opera. It made us
( think of the times when Sam Rothapfel
! used to get up and take his orchestra
! through the mazes of "William Tell"
'? E'; the Rivoli.
The picture is extremely entertaining
but one thing is radically wrong. Tins
is the lighting on the print, which re?
duces everything to hard black and
; white lines and ma'kes the people look
' as though they had been rushed into
i the scenes without any make-up. It was
particularly unfair to Helen Chadwick
and Rosemary Theby.
Alec B. Francis gives a finished per?
formance as usual. He is Lord Neville,
I the husband of the foolish woman who
' starts all tiie trouble in the first place.
Moore is appealing and manly in the
r?le of the hero. The picture was
directed by Harry Beaumont.
There is a Fox comedy. "Her Firs-.
Kiss," the Rialt? Magazine and ?.
"Judge Rumhauser" cartoon. The
[overture is "Sicilian Vespers." James
Harrod sings "Mother. My Dear." The
light opera number is Rudolph Friml's
At Moss's Broadway, Houdini will be
seen in "The Grim Game." This will
be reviewed to-morrow.
Plays and Players
"Lightnin'" is playing to capacity
and unless an Actors' Equity is formel
in Australia it will repeat its New
\ork success. This was the import of
the special message received by Smith
and Golden from J. C. Williamson, h
also said that John O'Hara. in the title
role, had made a personal hit.
Anton Scibelia is engaging people for
a new musical comedy, "My Once in a
While," to be produced immediately.
The book, lyrics and music are by'
Charles George. "Fifty-Fifty Ltd." will
open in Washington September 1 and
will go on the road for a short tour
before opening in New York.
Stewart and Morrison have engage 1
Vera Meyers for an important r?le ;n
their new musical comedy, which will
be christened and put into rehears:.'.!
next week. The score is by Hugo Ries
enfeld, of the Rialto-Rivoli theatres.
Marguerita Sylva has begun a trans?
continental vaudeville tour, starting

Says He Will Include German
Music in Programme
Pierre Monteux, the new conductor
of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, ar?
rived from France yesterday on the
Lorraine and left for Boston at mid?
night. He was accompanied by Mme.
Monteux and their two children. W. H.
Brennan. manager of the orchestra, met
the conductor at the dock.
M. Monteux. who coniiucted French
opera at the Me tropoli tan last year,
will appear for the second time as con?
ductor of the famous Boston organiza?
tion. The post -vas offered hin; last
season, immediately following the y -
ternment of Or. Karl Muck, but his con?
tract with the Metropolitan prevented
him from accepting the engagement.
At the beginning of the season, how?
ever, pending the arrival of Henri
Rabaud, who had been engaged to suc?
ceed the German musician, M. Monteux
directed several concerts by the or?
chestra, both in Boston and on tour.
M. Monteux announced yesterday his
intention to include German music in
"I do not think the war has chang-ed
people's taste in music," he said, "and
my aim will be to give the American
people the music th?_ir taste demands."

New Bill of Actors' Equity at
the Lexington Opera
By Heywood Broun
The second bill of the Actors' Equity
Association, which began at the Lexing-,
ton iast night, went with all triebest
which marked the performances of the
first week. It is a rare thing in the
American theatre to hear cheers, but
the audience was roused beyond mere
applause on several occasions last
night. It cheered for Blanche Ring,
who had been ill. but got well just to
come out and sing at an Equity show;
it cheered Ethel Barrvmore. who played
Juliet for the first time, and it cheered
just as hard for the chorus girls and
men who appeared with De Wolf Hop?
per in a series of burlesque on the
late crop of musical p!ays. No one
was credited on the programme with
the authorship of the lyrics, but the
various verses on the stVike situation
were highly amusing. Moreover/ the
chorus, although drilled for on-iy a
little while in its dances, went through
its turn with grace and skill.
Miss Barrymore was a beautiful
Juliet and read her lines well. There
were times when she was a shade too
sweet a Juliet, but it was throughout
an interesting and effective interpreta?
tion. Blanche Ring swung the audi?
ences with her into the choru|?= of'
songs in ,i manner which she alone
among American musical comedy per?
formers can do. Chic Sale did' some
gorgeous work in his satirical studies
oi rural ?ir'e. Some of this is so ex?
traordinarily delicate and clean cut
that it is a pity 'hat he resorts at
times to broad burlesque of a much
more careles- calibre. He is at his
best a comedian of the highest skill.
Perhaps his brief excursions into mere
clowning serve to emphasize the qual?
ity of his most careful studies, which
are as accurate as they aro humorous.
He is a most ext ?aorainary person,
Chi?: Sale, ami if he will keep away
from the terrpration to seek the easy
laughs inspired by the difficulties of a
man chewing tobacco an.l studies of
that sort his place in the American
theatre will remain distinctive.
Robert Emmet Keer.e, one of the
most skilful ol' our performers in the
of casual material, -vas an excel?
lent master of ceremonies, and the
Duncan Sistei-3 wei'e highly amusing in
their rapid musical patter. Altogether
the actors' strike -'.v.,aid at bust be
credited w.ith having provided New
Y-jrl. with tit.- most remarkable vaude?
ville performances which it has seen.

?ed to her father's home at Dickc
busch Farm for safety. Two days
after she reached her home German
soldiers took Brussels, she said. A
German officer '-vas billeted at her
?father's hous^ and a German wireless
was installed there. Waiting for an
opportunity, the girl slipped into the
room when the soldiers were absent
and succeeded in putting the station
out of commission. After a delay of
forty-eight hours, however, the ma?
chine was repaired and again in opera?
Again. Mile. Marie, acting according
to instructions from the Belgian mili?
tary authorities, attacked the wireless
outfit md destroyed it completely. A.s
she was leaving the collar where the
instruments were located, two German
soldiers caught her. She was taken
before the Gorman commanding oi?icer
an?l was ordered to be shot. Only
through the intercession of the officer
who was billeted in the house was she
saved from the firing squad.
