quality of sustained merriment is what
stretched "Seven Days" into a third

better each time. That is why at
the Astor Theatre in New York, it
made the record of the American
stage, running into a third year. Oul

"THE COUNTRY BOY."
Ill nry It. Hlarris will present "The
Coun'ry Boy," Edgar Selwyn's great
comedy success, at the Tulane for the
week of Dec. 10. The play concerns a
young man who goes to New York
City to make "his success in life." He
experiences several disillusionments,
goes through some pretty tough times,
and although he jumps with both feet
into the gayest of the gay lives along
"The Great White Way," he finally
comes to believe that the only way
out of it is by way of the gas route.
But he doesn't succeed in committing
suicide, and it all turns out all right
in tho end, making as sweet and
wholesone and withal, as realistic a
story of every-day life as was ever
a month spending money-and object
ing strenuously to the penury thus
forced upon him. Indeed, he has been
making absenttreatment love to a
contortionist lady in the flat upstairs
and pawning his father's clothes to
buy flowers for her. Then Percy and
Mary Peters appear upon the scene.
Percy is looking for "the girl in the
taxi," who proves to be Mrs. Smith,
the wire or a perrume manuracturer
who comes to pay a visit to the Stew
arts on the eventful evening which
starts the play on its rapid-fre, speed
defying Journey of Joys and Jealousies.
The senior Qtewart slides out of the
house late at night, follqwed by Percy
and later, by young Bertie, the des
tination of each being unknown to the
other. The destination of each proves
Ia- to be the same dining room in the
ay ('afe ('Churchill, wher complications
e- fairly tumlble over each other through
ed out the act. The head waiter steers
im the hole into greater and greater
he turmoil, the climaxes are postpolied,
,heightened, tihe laughs conic like dis
ts charges front gatling guints, and the
it end of the ac.t, which conies in a per
or feet turmoil of comedy, finds the audi
ence almost exhausted fronm laughing
and aasping for breath.
It would be bad to describe the last
act. which, in many ways, is the fun
niest of the three, and as the Boston
SGlobe said, "There isn't a slow mo
ment In the entire performance."
"THE WHITE SQUAW.'
The attraction at the ('rescent for
the week of Dec. 10. beginning Sunday
night, will be "The White Squaw."
This i.; one of the most stirring plays
I seen here In a long time. It is a melo
drama with a grip, and is filled with
heart interest. Della Clarke will be
seen in the leading role, and the en
tire company is very talented. There
will ibe a complete scenic production.
