ct 1. u-!iered in by the opening
chorus "Gala Day at the iicaen, is
la sea slioi.- -one. It is a salt-air
musical comedy. The acting takes
place at I who's summer cottage on
the Jersej oast, in the morning. And
by the way, the show is a rapid-fire
one, just like the fast-burning fuse on
the bomb It all takes place in a
Now tlie Powne family takes an im-
Eportant part in the happenings. Ham
Knard Downe, a mere man, portrayed
fey Russel L. Richards, is the husband
J of Mrs. Puttem-Downe, ardent and
loquacious as to her cause, and father
to Miss May Downe, also imbued with
fthe suffrage idea. Miss Edithe H.

Miss Helen Aylesbury the part of
Miss May Downe. Harry Downe, son

naid. for Miss May Downe, he makes
love to her and is caught by the real
Miss Downe. Miss Vera Jane Hol
comb takes the part of Kitty. This is
complication now, and you know
that is necessary in play-making. And
to make worse Mrs. Puttem-Downe
has decreed her daughter must marry
the young Montmorency.
Act II straightens out somewhat
the tangle. This is a Sailor's Tavern
scene in the afternoon. A fake meet-
ing of suffragettes is pulled off by the
men and the bomb is brought in to
give young Dick an opportuniay to
prove himself a hero before the now
disdainful Miss Downe. Mr. Putts,
the Englishman, intoxicated, strolls
ia and accidentally touches his cig
arette to the bomb's fuse. Here Dick
rushes in and hurls the bomb out of
the window. The third act is at the
Downe cottage that night, where all
the lovers are united and all are hap
py, as is customary.
Comedians Are Sailors.
Jack Tar, sailor on the "Bubbles,"
by Carlyle Johnson, Tom Pitch, his
pal. by John C. Stapel, cooperated
