By Heywood Broun
Miss Maxine Elliott made a trium?
phant reappearance on the American
'stage last nicht at the theater which
j bear? her name in Williarn Ilurlbut'
! comedy. "Trimmeil in Scarlet." Her
] dressmaker shared the honors, for it
I was a triumph which was wholly per
: sonal and visual. 'Die lines of tbe play
i were not nearly as pood.
In fact, "Trimmed in Scarlet" is per
baps tho silliest piny of the season. At
' times it is fatuous beyond the limits
1 of endurance. For instance, the plav
; sets forth that Cordelia, the heroine,
'? has gallivanted about Europe with
: scores of men for fifteen years without
the slightest deviation from rectitude.
| It seems to us thai virtue of that son
is little short of indecent.
Again, there was a scene in the firs!
act in which Miss Elliot) a< the hero
? ine was called upon to .stand and gaze
upon an infant child of three months
of age in his carriage and to weep anc|
purgle as she gazed. It was a child to
which she had not even been intro?
duced and it was asleep. Perhaps Mr.
Hurlbut has some insighl into a
mother's heart which is denied to us.
but we have considerable baby carriage
mileage to our credit and we have
never been moved to cry while he slept.
In fact we have- never been able to
feel any more emotional than an At?
lantic City negro pushing a tired busi?
ness man up the boardwalk.
lince more we wore moved almost to
revolt when Cordelia nut her nineteen
year-old son to sleep by reading him a
fairy tale, When the play goes on the
road we tru = t that the manager will not
neglect to book it for two weeks al the
bottom of the treacle well, for the three
little girls who used to live there in
the days of "Alice it; Wonderland"
would undoubtedly be moved to cry
''goody, goody!" at the end of every
act.
Every strange and implausible device
of artificial comedy is employed at one
titno or another during the evening,
Cordelia's son steals money from his
employer out of the sheer goodness of
his heart in order to protect his mother
from blackmailers. He just knows the
si iries about her scandalous character
can't lie true because everybody repeats
them and it is a good dramatic axiom
That whore there ia much smoke there
can't possibly bo any lire. Of course,
ho doesn't go to prison, because his
mother wheedles S M,000 out of tho
employer and then virtuously tolls the
bruto to leave her apartment before
he can insult her further by giving her
any more money.
The play is of such an impossible
nature that it presents a difficult! ta"k
for any actress, but it seemed to us
that the false nir of extreme .gayety
which Miss Elliott carried with her
throughout the greater part of the eve?
ning was not particularly fetching or
artful. However, ;' might bo possible
to take a text from ore character, who
said, "I don't see how anybody could
blame von for anything," and it is true
that Miss Elliott looks so beautiful
that tier evening in the theater must
be said to count for something.
Fhe opporl in ties afforded to the
members of her company are not dis?
tinguished. Lumsden Hare is pleasant
and there is a promising performance
by a young actor named Sidney Black
mer in an exceedingly silly part.
Charles Hanna as tho blackmailer was
by far the most likable person in the
play, because he never said anything
about how perfectly, wonderfully, rapt
uronsly happy it made him to receive or
give mother love.
Girl Shimmies Into Stardom
In New Herbert Opera Chorus
The surprise of "My Golden Girl,"
the new Victor Herbert musical
comedy, which was presented at th<
Nora Bayes TI eater last n ght, was not
noted on the program at all. Mr. Her?
bert himself didn't know it was there
For it was the end girl in the firs:
line of tho chorus, whose name, ?i
small type, among those of a score of
others at the end of tho cast, con
ceaied her identity as completely as if
it had not been there. When she
walked off the stage last nicht, how
ever, she did so with the promise of
stardom before her.
She bad held up tbe entire show
while the audience called for her re?
turn five timos, she had attracted more
attention than any of the principal?
and she had won the commendation of
Mr. Herbert. To-day ,-ihe will return
to the theater to bo measured for a
port. Whether it will be one that will
require the placing of her name in
large electric lights depends entirely
on Mr. Herbert, for he says she is
"capable of much."
All that Jeannette Pterrich I for that
is tho name thai finally was pointed
out as hers) did was to shimmy. But
she did that in so many different ways
and with such sincerity and enthusi
asm that she succeeded in breaking up
the show before it was well under wa;
That, with the fact that she is but

"Night Boat" Rocks Slightly,
But Is Off on Long Cruise
"The Night Ront," launched laal
night at the Liberty Theater, ought tc
enjoy a long cruise. Most of th<
Broadway musical shows this yeai
have been content to whirl througl
three plotless acts with Hcenes laic
upon the land, but last night Skippei
Charles Dillingham, assisted by Annt
Caldwell and Jerome Kern, piled i
company of fun-making farceurt
aboard the steamer Rip Van Winkh
l'or a cruise up the Hudson.
With its many deft tricks and twist
the piece was favorably received by th>
first-night audience. It, contains soin
dizzy dance numbers, several appealin;
songs, u piquantly pretty girl dance
and a glimpse of the stuff that wen
oui of style?or out of sight?with th
Eighteent h Amendment.
It contains also the inevitable woo
alcohol jokes and other jokes from
1915 catalogue. But, forgetting thes
minor flaws, it can be said that "Th
Night Boat" rocked but little, and i
was a highly .satisfied audience thf.
filed out of the theater when she cam
into port at 11:15.
Anne Caldwell ha* provided a sen
iceable libretto, based on a farce b
Alexander Bisson. For the trip up tr
river Jerome Kern has furnished son
whistleable tunes, which are sung ar
danced with real Cohan-like speed. Tr
dancing honors go to Louise Groot
and Hal Skelly.
A whimsical feature of the perforn
anee is a little specialty called "Tl
Plot of the Demonstrators." The:
"demonstrators" are pretty girls
black and white costumes, who appe:
in the first and third acts and tip o
the audience to the. intricacies of tl
plot.
The plot, or what there is of it, h:
to do with a Mr, Bob White, who poses
a? th? captain of the night boat, ply?
ing between New York and Albany.
The "plot demonstrators," after the
! fashion of "The Royal Vagabond,"
I create lota of fun by "kidding" the en
, tire piece. Jerome Kern's most tune
I ful numbers are "Left All Alone Again
; Blues" and "Good Night Boat." "The
I Girl by the Saskatchewan," snatched
from "The Pink Lady," went big.
On land or sea, such players as John
E. Hazzard, Ada Lewis and Louise
I Groody are always effective. Mr. Haz
I zard, in his uniform as a bogus sea
j captain, resembled "the carriage starter
at the automat." Miss Groody is a
little dancer of delicate charm and her
work contributed much to the enter?
tainment.

Rienzi de Cordova Will
Marry Miss Toledano
Two Old Spanish Families, Ex?
iled by Inquisition, To Be
United by Marriage
An engagement which unites two of
the oldest and best known families of
Spanish descent in New York has just
been announced. It is that of Miss
I Stella Toledano, daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. P. H. Toledano, of 295 Riverside
j Drive, to Rienzi de Cordova. The
j bride-elect's family has been in New
: York for a long time, and she and her
| mother have been actively identified
! with philanthropic work. Mr. de Cor?
dova's family has lived in the United
i States for several generations, four
' being identified with New York itself.
The family traces its descent from the
"Great Captain" Gonzalez de Cordova,
who attached Granada to the crown of
! Spain and was permitted to add its
i arms to the quartering.?? of 'his own.
Both families were forced during the
; days of the Inquisition to seek safety
in flight, and the Toledanos settled in
Morocco, while the de Cordovas mi?
grated to Jamaica, then a Spanish col?
ony. In time they came north to the
1 United States, and settled for the most
part of New York.
Mr. de Cordova has written and pro
: duced several plays. His family for
years has been identified with Wall
Street.
Music of Mozart and Brahms
Played by Richard Buhlig
Richard Buhlig's fifth piano recital
; of the season, given last night in Aeo?
lian Hall, was devoted to the music of
Mozart and Brahms. Mr. Buhlig is a
scholarly musician and a pianist of
power, which he uses on almost all oc?
casions with discretion and a nice .sense
of proportion. His style is academic
rather than tired with great warmth of
emotion. Exquisite in clarity and grace
was his playing of Mozart, and he ap?
proached the intricacies of Brahms
with zeal and understanding.
On the Screen
j Capitol Presents "Hiawatha's
Wedding Feast," With Real
Indian? in Ca?t
t_,_.
By Ishbel M. Ross
The Capitol Theater breaks all prece?
dents for motion picture houses this
; week by putting on an elaborate pres?
entation of "HiawatLa's Wedding
I Feast" in operatic form. A largo cast
| is called into commission, with a. tribe
\ of Indians to give realism u> the pro
; dtiction. It is a colorful and tuneful
cantata composed bv S. Coleridge Tay?
lor. The staging is done by W. G.
Stewart, with a special setting by John
Wenger. Willard Koote is the manly
Hiawatha and Margaret Waldron ti.e
graceful young Indian girl Minnehaha.
The most interesting part of the pro
\ gram, in many way?, is the Japanese
! prologue and picture. With an exqu!s
I ?te background, arranged by John Wen
, ger, Yasu Katyana dances to the "In
I termezzo Chinois." The picture that
1 follows is an adaptation of "The Wil
i low Tree," done by June Mathis. from
the play by J. H. Benrimo and Harri?
son Rhodes. Henry Otto is largely re?
sponsible for the unusual setting. The
; art interiors and special effects are
' done by M. R. Stalcup. Viola Dana
takes the part of O-Riu, the Image
: Maker's daughter. One is forced to
the conclusion that some one more
' suitable might have been found for the
r?le.
In the first place, even her make-up
does not make a Japanese of her, and
her mannerisms are pronouncedly ;
I American. Rell Trenton is good ?s
Ned Hamilton, the Englishman, who ?
loves her. The story is woven around
the old theme that runs through the
opera of "Madama Butterfly" and doz
: ens of other Japanese stories?-the
traveler who goes to the East and falls
, in love with the native girl.
Others in the cast in addition to
Viola Dana and Pell Trenton are Ed?
ward Connelly, who plays the part of
the Image Maker; Prank Tokunago,
Togo Yamamato, George Kuwa. Harry
Dunkinson, Alice Wilson, Tom Ricketts
and Jack Yutaka Abbe.
The comedy this week is quite the
funnies' we have ever seen. It is a
ViUgraph pletor? ?tarring Larry
Kemon. It ia called "The Grocery
, Clerk." Those who think that they
know everything that has ever been put
! on in the way of slapstick comedy
j should see this picture, for they wi?!
get more thrills and laughter inside of
five minutes than they get out of ?
dozen of the usual comedies.
The hill includes some delightful
animal studies. The Educational Film
l Corporation presents "India" in col
i ors.
In addition to the feature picture at
Moss's Broadway Theater this we*?,
the vivacious Sophie Tucker, shimmy?

Those Pretty Teetl
Should Last a Lifetime?Save Them
All Statements Approved by High Dental Authorities
Dental authorities now agree that the
thing which ruins pretty teeth is film.
Tt is that viscous film, ever-present,
ever-forming. You can feel it with your
tongue. It clings to teeth, enters crev?
ices and stays.
The tooth brush does not end it. The
ordinary dentifrice does not dissolve it.
So month after month it clings, and may
do a ceaseless damage.
That is why brushed teeth discolor and
decay. Tooth troubles are constantly in?
creasing. People think they clean the
teeth, but they leave this film. And teeth
are ruined by it.
How Film Destroys
Film is what discolors ? not the teeth.
It is the basis of tartar. It holds food
substance which ferments and forms acid.
It holds the acid in contact with the
teeth to cause decay.
Millions of germs breed in it. They,
with tartar, are the chief cause of pyor
rhea. Thus most tooth troubles are now
traced to film.
These facts have long been known to
dentists. Dental science long has sought
a help. But the periodic dental cleaning
seemed the only way to fight film and
tartar.
Now science has found an efficient film
combatant ? one for daily use. Able
authorities have proved it by convincing
tests. Leading dentists everywhere are
urging its adoption.
