"A Knight For a Day."
The 'big musical Ha! Ha!'", is the
way the Boston Heiold sub-titled B.
C. Whitney's musical gaiety, "A
Knight for a Day'" and it is said to
be an appropriate title too, as the
claim is made that there are more
laughs in it than ;n -any three other
musical comedies combined. In ad
dition, it lays claim to one of the
most tuneful scores of the past de
ca-de. The gaiety is scheduled for an
appelarance at the opera house on
Wednesday night. December 8, and

other season equally divided between
Chicago, Boston and Philadelphia.
