' IN MUSIC PLAY
"The Pixies" Will be Present

Two Days in May
L'nder the general supervision of
Miss Valentine Preston, music super
visor of the Ogden city schools, and
Mrs. Sophie Wetheroll Rood, phys
ical education supervisor, rehearsals
are being held in all the city schools
of Ogden for the production of a two
act fairy musical play entitled "The

The story of the operetta tells of
ia war between the goblins and the
witches against the fairies and the
I pixies and calls for 500 children- to

! Drama Club to Back
Little Theatre Here
Believing that Ogden's talent would
best be put forth In the little theater
movement, the Ogden Drama club is
preparing lis iorlhcoming production
in the Interests of the theater, accord
ing to Mrs. Philip Warren Knlsely,
who said the members belie 'ed that
Ogden needed a permanent society of
this kind. "We need to make real
and practical the democratic ideals we
havo been fighting for. "A theatre for
the people, by the people And of t.ie
"Judgn Dan. E. Sullivan started 'he
little theatre," continued Mrs. Knlbe
ly; "but there must be a society which
will see that this movement becomes
permanent. Ogden is far ahead of
many of the cities in talent and in
having already established the 'Little
Theater.' It is hoped that Ogden will
organize along the lines similar to
those recommende'd by Granville Bar
ker and Maurice Brown when thoy
"Residents of Ogden arc eligible to
membership," said Mrs. Knieely. ' Of
ficers will bo elected annually. There
will be a branch of directors, consist
ing of the officers and three other
members, which will be elected annu
ally. The selecting and casting of the
plays is left to-the director.
"As membejship in Ogden players
increases in number and more assist
ance in the directing of plays Is ob
tained, programs will be given as fre
quently as posslblo. At present wonc
Is handicapped by the lack of mem
bers. The plays to be produced by
the Drama club will be given on Apr.'l
20 and will run three nights, and are
given solely for the purpose of aiding
the littletheater movement.
"Teams are being organized, so that
speakers will appear before various
Ogden organizations to ask the sup
port, membership and co-operation of
all the clubs."

Many Bright Spots In Pro
duction But Some Dull
There wore many bright spots In
"HltchyKoo of 191S," presented by
Raymond Hitchcock and a large com
pany at the Orpheum theatre, but
even the most enthusiastic member of
Inst ulgfit's audience must admit that
there were some dull spots, too. And
many of these dull spots occurred
when the distinguished comedian was
occupying the center of the stake.
It must be remembered, however,
lhat Hitchcock and his show arrived
just a few days after the gorgeous
Passing Show had entertained Og
den's theatre goers and Hitchcock's
production is not built upon such
large and spectacular lines.
Nevertheless HItchy-Koo" has
many fine features. The pretly sing
ing and dancing chorus Is one. The
comedy work of Bert Savoy as a bur
lesque woman Impersonator was an
other. He got more hearty laughs
than did Hitchcock, although tho lat
ter did score heavily In two or three
sketches. Including the barber shop
scone. This scene brought down the
house with genuine mirth. Many of
the other laughs were given Hitchcock
on a platter, however.
The Duncan sisters were a bright
spot. Their voices are childish and
blend wilh surprising beauty.
There arc many novelties in the
proouetion and the costumes and
scenic effects are above the average.
Mr. Hitchcock has a novel opening.
When tho overture is ended ho is
found down near the orchestra pit
from whence he takes the audience
into his confidence, addressing sev
eral of the citizens by name. Then
he proceeds to the stage and draws
upon a slate his stage setting which
Immediately takes lorm on tho actual
stage. Then the show is on.

Down on City Roofs
Shortly after midnight a rain and
hailstorm descended upon Ogden and
vicinity which shattered all records of
the year in intensity. Although the
deluge was of extreme short duration,
the weather records at the city hall
this morning showed the precipitation
of .38 of an inch, an unusual record
for such a brief storm. The early
morning storm even broke yesterday's
record from a standpoint of, intensity,
although the first storm was of longer
duration and resulted in more rain
fall. Practically the entiro city was
awakened by the thunderous drum
ming of the hail upon roofs and prep
arations were made by the officials
of the street department to havo
emergency crews ready to prevent the
flooding of street intersections. The
storm was so brief, however, that this
work was not necessary.
Ogden Is in for still more rain to
night and tomorrow, according to pre
dictions of the weather bureau which
are, "rain tonight and Friday, little
change in temperature,"
