English Actors Taking the
Places of Americans An
other "White Slave Play.
NEW YORK. Oct. II. As the the
atrical season progresses and the
winter draws nearer, the com
plaint that the English actors and
actresses are crowding the Americans
off their own stage, crows more audi
ble. It is certainly true that here in
New Tork there are an unprecedented
number of English nlavers holding
down perfectly good Jobs. It is also
true that there Is an unprecedented
number of native players who are not
holding down any job at all. Moreover,
the idle ones can count among their
mimhcri: Tnanv men and women who
haVe longhTce attained to prominence
and artistic authority people who have 1
been in the habit o rcommanamg irom
5300 to $500 a week for savins: their
little brief say and then skidding home
or to the club In their limtmsines.
What is the reason for this? Is it be
cause the American actor Is so far in
ferior to his Er-gllsh cousin? I hardlv
think so. We are producing a great

an English one In interpreting native
plays. I tljlnK most or tne iew iorK
producers would prefer to employ
Americans. I on!v know f. one con
siderable manager who frankly states
his preference for the Ensrlish artist.
Then what is the matter? The matter
is that the American actors demand
too much money. In the days when
the "war against the syndicate was at
its most feverish point, the hot rivalry
naturally sent salaries soarinsr sky
ward. The war Is over now and the
managers are cutting out the inflated
salaries. "Why." thev argue, "should

White Slave Play "Today."
T7e have another white slave nlay In
"Today." This theme seems to have
taken complete possession of the minds
and Imaginations of our playwrights,
but In this instance the subject is ap
proached from above instead of from
below. "Today" was written bv George
Broadhurst and Abraham S. Schomer
and its "purpose" is to show the pitfalls
into which the fashionable, luxury lov
ing woman of today may fall. It is the
sto-y of a young wife, who greedily
gobbles up her prosperous husband's
wealth in her insatiable thirst for lux
ury, gowns and elegant societv. Just
at the highest pitch of her social and
J jntaSt draw nT room and
into the ""' ramrr "
sartorial triumph, the nusDana comes
into the brilliant drawing room and
announces in husky tones that thev are
"ruined. The vare cleaned up aDso
lutelv. The wife is wearing about
$1,000,000 worth of pearls around her
neck. The husband roust have them.
Oh the tragedy of It. She takes them
off oh. the agonv of it her beautiful
pearl necklace. And the fashionable
friends, like rats on a sinking shin,
flee for the open.
Then the voung couple movev Into a
iitti fiat -nritli the vountr man's rar-
ents. two simple and loving old Ger
mans, who almost "ruin" the nlav bv
their everlasting "comic relief, when
their vaudeville sketches have been
pruned the nlav is apt to go ahead and
make something of a record for Itself.
But to continue -with the storv.
The "Faithful Friend."
The wife is unable to denv herself
the luxuries she has become accustomed
to. She runs her husband into debt.
Then comes the one friend of the for
mer days who has remained faithful
to her (for a purpose'). This friend
tells her of a verv fashionable house
where very fashionable men meet
"nice" women, with the result that the
"nice" -women are never in debt and are
alwavs dressed fit to kill. At first the
voung -wife spurns the suggestion and
then comes In that old Bvronlc prop
osition, "sin is a thing of such hideous
mien." etc . ...
The last act Is a real thriller. The
husband finds his wife in the drawing
room of the elite brothel and what fol
lows is intense, powerful and absorb
ing clean to the dron of thp curtain.
As the young wife. Emilv Stevens
gives a clean, meritorious performance.
a genuine character studv. Edwin Ar
den. ass the husband, is verv fine, espe
cially in the last act. where his virile
authority stands out. Therese Maxwell
Conover. las the temptress, gave her
cvnical lHie3 their full value, and Marie
"WTainwright. as the keeoer of the fash
ionable resort, -was splendid. It Is a
pity that more -was not provided for
this most excellent actress. AHre Gale,
as the simple and amusing German
mother, was verv svmnathctic and Gus
"Weinburg. as her husband, supported
her more thin acceptably.
The supreme art of David Warfleld
and of David Belasco was never seen
to better advantage than on Tuesday
night. when Warlieid returned to the
Belasco theater in his first great vehi
cle. "The Auctioneer." The nlav had
been revamped bv the deft hand of
Mr. Belasco. making it better by at
least 50 percent than it was at the
time Belasco used it to launch his then
newlv discovered star.
"Warfield's work was a pure delight.
s Simon Levi, the simple old Hebrew,
he had his audience watching his every
move and straining to hear everv word.
It is not necessary to retell the story
of the plav here but suffice it to say
that Tuesday night's performance
stamps "Warfield as the greatest ec
centric character actor of all time.
Marie Bates, as Mrs. Eagan, also was
a great jov. The audience save her a
reception that was almost as warm as
the one accorded the star. Mrs. Jennie
Moscowitz. who played Mrs. Levi, was,
verwealistic. and the entire supporting
cast was capital.
The new Sam S. Shubert theater,
srected as a monument to the memory
of that unfortunate brother who was
killed in a railroad wreck several vears
ago. -was opened on Thursday night by
sir Forbes-Robertson In "Hamlet."
The newlv knighted actor was given
an ovation by the large and fashiona
ble audience and he delivered himself
of a most graceful curtain speech.
Forbes-Robertson's ailment is not
new to this city. It is a Hamlet that
all have admired for manv vears. with
its clerical, clean-cut manner, its ele
gance, its splendid diction and its abso
lute authority. In some episodes
Forbes-Robertson's Hamlet Is magnifi
cent, and in none is it uninteresting
It is a Hamlet that gets you bv the
magnetism and rharm of its conception
and a sniritual fervor that throbs.
Mr. Forbes-Robertson -was supported
bv his wife, Gertrude Elliott, who. as
Ophelia, left a good deal to be desired.
The other members of the supporting
cast were not of anv great assistance
tx the star. But fortunately he didn't
need much assistance.

Some Valuable Hints From Grete Von Mayhof
By Maude Miller.
VEN the grandmothers are
pretty In America!" said Grete
von Mayhof, with a touch
of amazement. "in my coun
try beauty means youth, and
after a woman is mature enough
to marry she calmly accepts
age and fading as her lot. Of course
in Europe it is different with the
actress, who recognizes her beauty as
part of her stock in trade. She takes
care of herself just as respectfully as
she does of anything else that she

"My point of view is European, you
know. Now I think that all women
are born coquettes, and coquetry is
part of the charm that is woman's
greatest asset. But coquetry never
means flirting. Coquetry means sweet,
simple, charming manners, in yourself
to make the most of yourself. Co
quetry wins and holds friendship and
love. Flirting repels all worthy affec
tion. "One of the great fields for woman's
charm to make itself felt Is in the art
of dressing. I have studied clothes
since I was fifteen. It is from the
French that I have learned from
Sarah Bernhardt and Madame Rejane.
And I think that the American women
will do well to study the French.
For. to be a really charming woman
with the assurance that comes from
knowing that you are well dressed is
a thing well worth a little study.
"Now. I believe in forming the ha
bit of looking well. It is just as
easy to form the habit of buying be

buying the particular color that will
clash with your coloring, and the par
ticular cut that will spoil the lines of
your figure. Black for blondes; warm
brown to bring out rich bronze tints
in eyes or hair; a touch of bright
color to add to the charm of the palo
"Next keep your figure in trim. No
cocoa, chocolate, milk, or any of your
popular sodas! No ice1 cream, sweets,
potatoes or any of the fat builders
for the girl who wans to ba a charming
coquette. The fat woman can't be coy.
No lounging no taking naps for the
woman who means to keep her figure.

about your rooms walk out in the

"Now if you have studied your
clothes and kept your figure In trim
tne next study is your face. Wash It
with milk That will remove dirt and
dust as well as your cold creams and
pastes and it is pure. Milk will make
your face smooth and clear.
"And then don't spoil things by clog
ging up the pores of your face with
powder. I never use it. I make my
skin fine and smooth and then I don't
turn around and undo all that I have
tried so hard to bring about.
"It is just as important to have the
skin of your body fine as to keep
that of your in condition. I al

This is refreshing, cleansing, and 1
