THE NEW PLAYS
A Comedy for Youngsters
By CHAflLES DARNTON
JF 'tJolde'n Days" should happen lo

be popular with the hoys and girls

There, too, onoe again. Is Helen
Hayes, who must feel a bit odd at
happing from "The "Wren" Into thh
childish .piece, which she might hare
fcxrected from the author of "Clar
ence," only to realize that Instead of
having been written by Kootb Tark
Ington, It ie the output of Sidney
Toler and Marlon Short. Between her
and Donald Gallaher, another sur
vivor of on early failure, there ap
pears to bo a bond of sympathy, and
one helps tho other to make this
nonsense plausible. At best It Is n
comedy for- youngsters, with girls
rushing In when the spirit moves
them, boys rushing- off to waj-, and
then rushing iback again not the
Jeast bit changed by their experi
ence. The plot could be "put Into an ice
cream cone. It's llko thli: A poor
little country girl Is quite forsaken
'by a boy whose father becomes sud
denly wealthy in war time, but sho
has a rloh aunt from New York who
dresses her up In the smartest
fashion and also -provides a gallant
youth to make the home boy jealous.
The mock 1 courtship, you may bo
sure, turns into an earnest one, and

It is the transformation of plain
Mary Anne Into a lovely society bud
that really matters, and this is ac
complished with the help of a French
maid In the best scono of all, with the
demure object of the experiment lend
ing herself mutely to the Strang
business. But when she goes to th

accustomed glory the wonder Is that

forever after, for she has a train or

If Miss Hayes found it hard work
to attract even one young man in
"The Wren," aho now has her re

room and the flower of Karmdale's
youth sappy yet flattering is bowed
(before her. It's most remarkable, Jut j
t, only goes toi show what clothes 1
can do for a girl. The first requisite,
of course, Is to have a rich aunt
"ready to call up a Fifth Avenue mo

In the afternoon and have everything
on hand for the dance the same night.
Vou say this couldn't be done any
where but In a play? Perhaps it
couldn't. But who cares? It's nice to
be silly, and "Golden Days" Is a very
However, Mlsa Hayes is charming,
