Th3 KM Yea II3T3 Ataaji C::jM Bears the J? yJT nature of CaTYi&Zk Press Agents Tell of Theatrical Bills "OVER NIGHT," LYCEUM PLAY THIS EVENING The Lyceum Players will open for the week this evening at the Lyceum ; in "Over Night,'' a farcical comedy by Philip H. Bartholomae. The usual matinees will be presented Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday afternoons. "Over Night" is unquestionably the greatest laugh-provoker offered by the players under the direction of Man ager Wyrley Birch. Scream after scream of laughter is provoked by the keen witticisms cleverly written in by the author. The story is interesting. It brings out the complications in which two oddly suited couples And themselves after marriage. "Mr. and Mrs. Kettle" and "Mr. and Mrs. Darl ing" meet quite by accident on the Hudson river day boat. They dis cover the . difference , in their temper aments. "Mr.' Kettle" and "Mrs. Darl ing", are most congenial in their tastes and temper. So it is with "Mr. Darling" and "Mrs. Kettle," who were seem ingly "made for each other." Through an author's circumstance "Mrs. Ket tle" and "Mr. Darling" miss the boat at one of the landings and the sec ond act finds "Mr. Kettle" and "Mrs. Darling" arriving at a hotel.' As they are-waiting in the lobby of the hotel a shower of rice falls from his cloth ing and as they, are taken .for some newlyweds they are subjected to a lot of live bantering by the people. "Mrs. Patchen" and "Mrs. Cleveland," who observed them on the boat, appear at the hotel and then the complications pile yp quickly. The tangled affairs are finally straightened out quite happily; ' Mr. Birch and Miss Barton as "Mr. and Mrs. Kettle" and Mr. Locke and Miss Skirvin as "Mr. and Mrs. Darl ing" are very congenially cast. Mrs. Hibbard will assume the role of "Mrs. Patchen." Mr. Cross will present the character of the hotel clerk. There are some pretty settings and costumes in this play. ' EUROPEAN NOVELTY KEENEY SPECIALTY A European novelty that has caused ; a near-sensation since its importation is the specialty of the Three English i Madcaps, secured for the headliner at Keeney's" this week. London placed itf stamp" of approval on the actlast season and the concert halls in other places on the continent also gave it recognition. Since its premier on the American stage the act has been mak ing regular hits and the expectations are that it will be a winner in iNew Britain. The management is paying a substantial amount for the act and ex pects it will draw heavily every day. Dan O'MalleV and his six dancing girls will probably be another big at traction. Dan is known from coast to coast for his original comedy and ec centric dancing. This year he has surrounded himself with a bevy 6f pretty little girls, all possessing sing ing and dancing ability. He offers a musical comedy in miniature and If the reception given "him elsewhere may be taken as a criterion, he may be sure of a warm welcome from New Britain theatergoers. With other cities. New Britain is in j th grasp of the tango craze and to satisfy lovers of the latest terpsichor ean manoeuvers. the management has billed Mr. and Mrs. DalyV expert tango dancers, for this week. .The couple will inrtoduce the new dances of the ball room- besides some new steps of which they are the origina tes. Cadrlen, the famous high wire per former, and Arlton and Arliss. a pair of clever song and dance entertainers, will make up the balance of the show. The Hearst-Selig review of current events, which is to be a Monday night feature of the motion picture program during the summer, will be shown to night for the first time. It is said to be even superior to the Pathe Weekly, which in future will be released on Wednesday nights. v LITTLE SEMBRICH SINGS TONIGHT Miss Agnes Conrad, whom the Na tional Society for Broader Education, Ik. announcing- as one of Its artist representatives, is to visit New Brit ain this evening. She has been aptly called the "Little Sembrich of America," possessing as she does a voice of limpid sweetness and exceptional technical attainments, which are said to rival those of the great Polish prima donna. She has personal beauty and grace of manner as well. , It is difficult to describe the be witching tones of this young singer that bubble forth in deliciousi trills and rushing cadences so liquid and pure from her charming throat. Her voice has resonance and power end according to critics of both Europe and America she Is considered cne of the world's coloratura sopranos. Under the local auspices of the Woman's Relief Corps ,Miss Conrad will give a series of song recitals per taining to "The Apple Orchard" this evening and tomorrow evening, at Booth's hall. She will bo accompanied by two other musicians of the highest ability upon the violin 'and Piano. Daily Fashion Talks BY MA Y M ANTON f - 8244 Blouse for Misses and Small Vomen, 16 and 18 years. WITH LONG OR THREE-QUARTER SLEEVES. I ' 1 The blouse with Normandy collar is a very new one, very smart and very attractive. This one is made from organdie which is the latest cry and which makes the daintiest possible blouses. The model can be used, however, for any seasonable material, the crepe de chine that will be worn all summer quite as well as the cotton and linen ones. Cotton crepe makes up most attractively and is extremely smart and the voiles of the season are unusually attractive for there are a great many shown in embroidered figures as well as the plain material. The combination of the raglan sleeve at the front and the kimono at the back is especially smart. This blouse is all white but touches of color are fashionable and white voile or cotton crtpe for the blouse with the collar and cuffs of yellow or cerise would be charming or the blouse could be made of color with trimming of White. ; For the 16 year size, the blouse will require 2$i yds. of material 27, 1 yds, 8$ lM yds. 44 in. wide. i The pattern 8244 is cut in sizes for 16 and 18 years. It will be mailed to any address by the Fashion Department of this .paper, on receipt of ten cent. Who Have Better Brains, Young Men or Young Women? Students at Goucher and Johns Hopkins Ahe Being Ex perimented Upon Examinations Purely Voluntary and Promises to Be Interesting. Who have the better quality of brains the girls of Goucher college or the young men of Johns Hopkins university? , Science is preparing to determine the question within the next few weeks and in the meantime the young women of Goucher are staking their claims for victory on a chosen half dozen or more of the senior class. .' Time was when woman never thought to challenge the claim that man possessed superiority of intel lect, but with the. progress of the world, the advancement of science and the latter-day movement for woman suffrage matters took on a dif ferent color, until today the fair sex has almost as many, if not as many, champions as its brothers and cou sins.'' The tests are being-, made under the direction of Prof. Knight Dun lap" of Johns Hopkins university, in the psychological laboratories of that institution. They are entirely vol untary. Similar tests, it is said, have "been made in other cities, although their results have not become gen erally known, and it was to get a de-' finite solution of the problem that Professor Dunlap suggested to Pres ident William W. Guth. of Goucher. that some of the students submit to examination. Thus far Misses Madge Thurlow, Elizabeth Mason. Winifred Brown, Katherine Roblitz and Harriet Winn are some of the seniors , who have been examined by Professor Dunlap. Others have promised to undergo the same kind of examination. Complicated implements are being used in making the tests. One of these is composed of two transmitters with a time noting attachment. Into nne transmitter Professor Dunlap pronounces a noun, and the person tested must mention an adjective that might qualify it. This is to deter mine the alertness of the person's perception. There are many picture tests that go to determine the mental development of the student under ex amination. Whether he expected the young women of Goucher to display a high er class of mentality than the. young -men of Johns Hopkins, ' President' 8246 One-Pfece Skirt with Yoloe, 22 10 30 waist. 1 WITH YOKE AND SINGLE OR DOUBLE WMSTILINE A WITH HIGH R NATURAX Here is a skirt that gives all the newest features. It is broad at the hips and sug gests the bustle at the back; it is narrow at the feet yet the fullness above allows freedom for walking. It can be made witfl high or natural waist line and the girdle can be Ieft plain or finished with an up standing frill. The combination of flow ered foulard with plain taffeta shown in one view is an exceedingly smart one but one could make this sktrt from any fash ionable material. It would be very charming made of plain and flowered cotton crSpe or it could be made of one material throughout or of any combina tion that might suit the special costume of special need. If the double tunic , proves too full for the figure, he lower one can be omitted. Whichever of the many possibilities is decided upon, the skirt is certain to be smart and satis factory and the lines are the newest and best. The foundation is cut in one piece, straight widths of the material being i'oined to give the necessary width, and teneath the tunic, there is a smooth fitting yoke. For the medium size, the skirt will re quire aH yds. of material 27, 4 yds. 36, - yds. 44 in. wide, with ii yds. 27, I i yds. 36 or 44 for the lower tunic. The width at the lower edge is I yd. and 12 in. The pattern 8246 is cut in sizes from 22 to 30 inches waist measure. It will be mailed to any address by the Fashion De partment of this paper, on receipt of ten cents. Guth, of Goucher, declined to say last night. "Of course the test will not deter mine whether women generally are superior to men in mentality," said President Guth. "The examinations are being made of a few volunteers to determine their accuracy and alert ness of mental impulse. One can readily understand that the person conducting the test might examine a group of quick-witted women and slow-thinking men during the same period. This would not determine the question to the satisfaction of the world. Anyhow, it will be interesting to know what will be the result of Professor Dunlap's investigations." MAY DEMAND INCREASE.

The program was in two parts, the first introducing a chorus of seventy rive under the direction of Professor F. F. Harmon, arranged in tiers on the stage, and with individual selec tions' by Miss Marie Stoddart, soprano, of New York, Miss Jane Clark, con tralto, of Hartford, William J. Carroll,' tenor of Hartford, and Thomas Ew Clifford of Boston, baritone. The chorus was very responsive to the baton of Professor Harmon, the voices rising and falling in perfect unison.' Its best number in the opening was that of "Loch Lomond." which was sung with marked enthusiasm, and the audience was so appreciative that one verse was repeated with nne spirit. Mr. Carroll was the first of the soloists to appear, his number being "Thora," a sweet song, which' he im mediately followed with "Telling Her," calling for a higher range, a task which he accomplished with ease, his line voice being clear and pure. Miss Clark sang "An Autumn Gale" with pleasing effect but it was in "Laddie" that she showed her wonderful con trol. The words carried tenderness with them and her voice was in such perfect harmony with the sentiment of the song that it made a beautiful number. Mr. Clifford, who also had two numbers and who was enthusias tically encored, responded most hap pily with a sailor song from which the audience derived iits first spell of laughter and it would have been pleased to have heard him again. This feeling of appreciation was still alive when Miss Stoddart appeared, the audience being so happy that she seemed to join in the jovial spirit. She bowed and smiled and sang so well that an encore was instantly de manded. Her response was a love song with a bit of humor in it which the audience enjoyed immensely. B. F. Foley was the piano accompanist and the various numbers were carried through with promptness and splen did musical effect. The second part of the program consisted of the rendition of "Hay den's Second Mass in C," The orches tra had been transferred . from the pit to the stage, the soloists occupied seats to the left in front of the chorus and from the time that Pro fessor Harmon took his position in front the voices promptly responded to his every movement. The solos were splendidly rendered and the whole of the mass was sung with a fervor and expression which the au dience was prompt to appreciate. The Union was made the recipient of much praise for its fine work and Professor Harmon for his skill in bringing such a large chorus up to such a splendid state of perfection. Half a dozen or more young women garbed in white acted as ushers dur ing the evening. . , - G A Menu for Tomorrow ! Breakfast. Fruit. Creamed Dried Beef. Fluted Potatoes. Thin Corn Bread.

F YOU were to read a story in a magazine about a child whose parents died in his infancy, and whose sister Hacriflced her whole life to bring ' him up and give him a good education, and who repaid that sacrifice by living in luxury while his sister, a sickly old woman, slaved In a depart ment store, you would probably think the characters and (Incidents over drawn and not true to life, wouldn't you? But they wouldn't be. "In this community," writes a letter friend from a distant city, "about thirty, years ago a baby was left to the care of his older sister when his parents died. The sister sacrificed her whole life for him, giving him a good education. ' "He married and his wife turned him completely agalnut this fslsler. The girl he married was very poor, but now they have a summer home, a touring car, in short, every luxury that money can buy. While the uls ter can be seen almost any day going back and forth to work when she is able, and often when she is not (her health is extremely poor). She is very proud and one of the most respectable and estimable women in this city. "Her brother, from one year's end to another does not give her a single penny, while his wife spends In one entertaining of her bridge club enough to make, it unnecessary for the older woman to go out these ter rible winter mornings at her time of life. "I call It a crying shame. Of course. It's right that her brother should give his wife and family all the necessities and all the luxuries he can afford, but he surely ought to be able to give his sister (his parent, mind you) enough so that she wouldn't have to work even when she is sick to keep from starving." A story like that makes one's blood, boil. It seems worse than the ordinary case because It was a sister In stead of a parent. Parents in bringing children into the world Incur the responsibility of rearing them. That is normal. But for a young woman to give up her life and probably her personal happiness and her opportun ity for marriage and children of. her own, to rearing another woman's child, even her own brother, is a far greater sacrifice and deserves even greater reward. And the wife who turned her husband's heart away from' this more than parent is proportionately even more guilty than the wife who tries to turn her husband against his father and mother. Why will women do it any way? Why will women who otherwise seem gentle and tender hearted, deliberately try to shut their husband's parents and family out of his life? There certainly cannot be an uglier jealousy than that which will make a wife unwilling to share her husband with the woman who bore him. , Let her beware. Let her remember the warning of Cardinal New? man: "Some women when they marry are not content to be sweetheart, and wife, but must also take the place of mother and sisters, too, but let the woman who closes a man's heart against those of his own blood, remember that some day the one door she has left open is isure to slam" in her own face."
