of other offerings which tried to get
some of the cash, but they didn't
measure up, and the Prohman show
went on its monopolistic way rejoic

POP! Musical comedy was uncorked
at several points along the gay white
way. Pretty good musical comedy,
too, all of it.
HUNGRY HE TURNED BANDIT
AND CAVE MERRY CHASE
Lew Fields is offering "Suzi" at
the Casino. It is from the Hunga
rian. The music is by Aladar Renyi,
whose name has hitherto meant
nothing in the life of the American
theater-goer, but who promises to
make a place for himself in the
hearts of music lovers if he contin
ues to send over such charming mel
lodies as many of those in "Suzi."
The cast is strong in comedy as
well as vocal ability, including Jose
Collins, Connie Ediss, Robert Bvett,
Tom McNaughton and Lew Hearn.
Joe Weber is running opposition
to his old side-partner with a musical
offering called "The Only Girl," at
the 39th st. theater. Victor Herbert
did the tunes and Henry Blossom
the lines. Both are unusually en
joyable. Wilda Bennett and Thurs
ton Hall have the leading roles.
As this year's successor to "The
Pink Lady," "Oh! Oh! Delphine," and
"The Little Cafe," Klaw & Erlanger
are presenting "Papa's Darling" at
the New Amsterdam. Ivan Caryll
again furnishes the music and it is
excellent. The book is adapted by
Harry B. Smith from a French farce.

Seattle, Wash. A smallish,
swarthy, mild-mannered, good-natured
looking young Greek is in the
city jail here, facing a charge of highway-
Seattle knows him as a bold, bad
bandit. A few days ago he had the
whole town on edge. Every spare
man on the police force was out try
ing to hunt him down. A score of
deputy sheriffs were scurrying
around the highways leading from
Seattle, armed with grim-looking
Winchesters and instructions to
shoot to kill, if necessary.
Between the bandit and his pur
suers many shots were exchanged.
The fact that nobody was killed
even injured seems due to caprice
of Fate, coupled with poor marks
manship. The Greek held up a man. He
says he did it because he was hun
gry and could find no work.
And now he is in jail, smoking in
numerable cigarettes, . jesting with
the prisoners and jailers and appear
ing to take himself and the whole
world as one huge joke. He looks
as innocent as a babe and as harm
less as a kitten.
