Zobeldn .Margartt Talma Nazlda .Helen Zorn Abram .Walter I.ano Lamra .Margaret Brodnax Mlrza .Mai I'oth By Heywood Broun Morris Gest's production of "Mecca," which was shown at tho Century last night, is more beautiful and more dar? ing than "Aphrodite." To complete tho statistics it might, also be added that it is bigger. The most potent appeal is visual. Of all tho various authors, composers and painters who have contributed to the production the chief credit should go to Michel Fokine, the Russian choreographist. The bac? chanale which he arranged for the last act is easily the most striking incident :ti the performance. Probably only Dr. Straton could tell whether or not it was more sinful than the correspond? ing number in "Aphrodite." It was so fast and furious that our impression was blurred, but wo did carry away a mental picture of the final tableau in which the stage was paved with scores and peores of recumbent women a? thick as good intentions. But perhaps it would be just as well not to go tor fully into motives. Perhaps it will suffice to say that the ballet is beauti? ful as well as startling. Everything about the production i? lavish and some of it is better than mereiy generous. Tho elaborate change.6 of scenery were handled so expedi tiously that the melodramatic features of the big musical show were not drowned out by the wealth of move? ment, color and dancing. The play con? cerns a sultan, his rival and a beauti? ful singing girl, and though it pauses now and again for ballet interludes there are authentically exciting mo? ments, such as the wrestling match be? tween the sultan and the villainous strong man who tries to kill him, the raid upon the caravan to Mecca and the slave market. Lionel Braham plays the strong man with gusto. Orvillc Caldwell is effective as the heroic sul? tan. Gladys Hanson is a splendid fig? ure and Hannah Tobcck carried the part of the singing girl pleasantly. Bui the most striking performance of al; was that of Ida Mulle as an old Chinese woman, a part which had hardly ter lim . in all but was rich in enormously skilful pantomime. Oscar Asche wrote the book am Percy Fletcher composed, the music The smoothness of the first night per formance entitles E. Lyall Swete to al the credit which should go to a goo< job. Of its kind "Mecca" is absolute]; iirst rate. We must confess, however that we find drama generally more ar resting in plays which require some thing less than three or four hundrei persons. As a theatergoer one heroin? clothed and in her right mind out weighs even two hundred dancing girli clad only in the mosquito netting o their native land. The first of Mme. Borgny Hammer's Ihsen matinees, presented yesterday ?it the Little Theater, was a pretty be? wildering affair. Mme. Borgny Ham? mer was presented by Lawrence < larke, who announced her "Hcdda Gabbler" the two B's being the pro? gram's idea?as her American d?but. It announced her further as "of the, National Theater of Christiania. Nor? way." The latter of these statements is probably accurate, though the former is not, but being "of the Na? tional Theater of Christiania" did Mme. Borgny Hammer little enough service in acquainting her with what "Hedda" was all about. She played her now in evangelical sweetness, now in a sort of Alpine boredom, once or twice in a tantrum. To a spectator seeing the play for the first time, Hedda must nave peemed to be, in so far as she was anything, a sweet woman with fits. Mme. Borgny Hammer has a fine physical command of a stage, and, at times, great beauty. She delivers lines with at least an intelligent idea of what those lines mean. But of the gift of adding up lines and scenes and totaling a human being, she. showed none. Her supporting company contained two acceptable players, Rolf Fjell and Mercedes Desmore. Another item from the program states: "Mme. Hammer's gowns. General Gabler'a portrait, the lighting of the play and the execution and painting of the scenery by the Wits and Fingers Studio."

DeirL ?681 Broadway, corner 53d St Jam Jems," tho new musical pastime ! y Harry !.. Cort and George E. Stod dard, with music by .lames Hanley, give-, to New York its present seasons prettiest musical comedy production and places Ada Mae Weeks and Frank Kay and the King Sisters in a position to make arrange m en is for permanent lodging houses on Manhattan Island for the winter. There is a tune that lingers, which is the first evidence that real, old-fash? ioned musical comedy is not a tiling of history. It is called "The Magic Kiss." Ami then there is Joe E. Brown, the busy butler of the play, who is scream? ingly funny. Harry Langdon, with his trick automobile and his "vacant . stare," brings a bit of vaudeville's very best into a new realm, and Ned Sparks as a detective, in his monotone, is s splendid character. As if one lilting melody or two or | three were not enough, Mr. Hanley lias written an entire score that never weakens. Although there really is no plot to "Jim Jam Jems," it sparkles with its situations, and last, night com? muters were forced to wait Cor much later trains than usual because of the outbursts of applause that hung long after each curtain dropped. There is a cabaret scene in the fust act that should be shortened. By al rnear.s. producers, see to that! And while doing that, they should, to routu out a perfectly delightful offering, d< away .with "damns" and "hells" am other profane words. It will not de tract, one whit from the comedy am will win friends. Miss Weeks's dancing scene in th last act is far beyond anything showi in Broadway musical productions thi season. The appointments in the in terior scenes are gorgeous and the cos turning of the bright little chorus is re freshing. Tlie play finds Frank Fay as a re porter for a society publication sai to deal in social scandal, and his jour neys through fashionable New Yorl atop the hotels and in the exclusiv drawing rooms, while at the same tim "showing the town" to the pretty nice of a millionaire about whom he i gathering scandal, bring him into err barrassing situations out of which h twists as only th?' hero of a play coul twist. But the plot is secondary. Mr. Fay clean-cut appearance, his ease an grace and his ability to impersonal John Charles Thomas singing a raf time number, won him applause. Mis Weeks is astonishingly fine in song an dance, and the King Sisters are ; sweet as they can be. For that matte "Jim Jam Jems" is exquisite fro: chorus girls to principals. -? Clean Comedy and Many Novelties in 4Peek-a-Boc ISew Edition of Jean l?edini Show at Columbia Clever and Amusing Burlesque producers might do w< to take a look into Jean Bcdini's bo? ?if he will repmit them to) and pro greatly thereby. lus new editi? of "Peek-a-Boo" at the Columbia th week is splendid amusement, reple with novelties and clean comedy a: skillfully starred. Suggest i vene'ss not necessa'y on the stage to make audience laugh. It shows a low ord of skill. While "Peek-a-Boo" cann be given an absolutely clean hill health, it errs only slightly on tl scoi e. Bobby Clark and Paul McCullou do well in their roles of chief con dians, They are easily the equals, not the superiors of any comedia who have appeared at the Columl this season, Others worthy of co !,.? inlation are Frankie James, a < cidedly attractive "blues" singer, 1 Four Jansleys, remarkable acroba Ben Grinnell and the Seven Musi Spillers, a noisy but entertaining c ored jazz band.

Ruth 1- ? ? 'riilliim Moon, Douglns Whlttaker, The Theatre Guild opened its thin season ?it, tlie Garrick Theater las night with the production of "TIv Treasure," by David Pinski, Writtei originally in Yiddish, the comedy wa staged in Germany by Max Reinhardt Last night's presentation was the lirs time it has been seen on the English speaking stage. Since the presentation of St. Jolv Ervine's "John Ferguson" by the Guil during its first season, and of the sam author's "Jane Clegg'1 last season, on gops forth to succeeding production filled with expectancy and hope. Tho Theater Guild, during its shoi existence, has established a tradit.io for itself a tradition of the tine things of the stage. Last night thi tradition was established (?ven moi firmly than before. Pinski's incish four-act comedy, ?gtaged skilfully an sympathetically by Emanuel Reiche and acted with a real note of sincerit; especially by Celia Adler, fred Eri Dudley Diggos and Helen Woatle1 takes it place with the other fir achievements of the organization. The charm of Pinski's comedy lit in its humanness. Knowing his ov> people so well, he has chosen to wri of a small Jewish community in Ru sia. and to expose, in a delightful amusing fashion, the foibles, the hypo ricies and the ambitions of the re characters he has created. But men and women are human b ings whether they make their beds a N'ew England village or on the di sands of Africa, and all the fuss, s the excitement made over the report? discovery of the treasure in the grav yard by tho gravediggr's son won have been stirred up in a Yankee coi munity as easily as in the Russian coi munity in the play. There is no forced, slapstick hum in Pinski's play, which was translati for last night's production by Ludw Lewisoh'n. Dazzled by the thought of suddi and great wealth by the supposed di covery of the treasure in the in'a\ yard the property of the communil each member of the community, fr; the humblest to the highest, won have his share. The rich man won sue for his rights to the gold, the mei bers o-f the society for providing do cries for poor maidens, the numb*. of tho society for the care of the sii the gravedigg?r's daughter, the t:r:i\ digger himself, all would dispose the property to their own advantage Celia Adl< r, in her d?but on t UT we are not going to review the trouble that comes from unsatisfactory transporta? tion.

Fred Eric, the idiot son. who buries hi-; pet dog and finds the goid, gives an uncommonly line per fci manee. For the lasl act, as well as for the whole play, Emanucl Reicher and I.ee Simonson are to be commended. When lie produced "The Weavers" some years ago Mr. Reicher handled large groups of people. He does the same thing m the search for the treasure m tho la: I act, and give.-- a snlendid example of his technical ski 1,1. Lee Simonson is responsible for the scenery and costumes, which are ef? fective and authentic. On the Screen Popularity Promised for Bu? colic Romance of "Homespun Folks'1 at the Capitol By Harriette UncJerhill "Homespun Folks" i< a Charles Ray picture; so much so, in fact, that we cannot see how any director had the temerity to produce it without Charles Ray. "Homespun Folks" is the first special production for Associated Pro? ducers and it is the feature at the t'a pi toi "this wecK. i! promises to be extremely popular because it has an op? pressed farmer hoy rise to the dignity of . district attorney and marry the daughter of his political enemy. It also has cows, horses, dogs and chick? ens in it, some good acting and some line photography. There are no stars in the picture and none of the players is familiar to us. Lloyd Hughes plays the young district attorney, Gladys George is the heroine and Al Filson the belligerent father. Anyhow, "Homespun Folks" is an entertaining picture and the best we have seen in a week- It was written by Julien Josephson and directed by John Griffith Wray. On the picture program also is the Capitol News and a Larry Semon comedy, "The Suitor." The overture is "Hungarian Lustspiel." "The Heritage of the Red Man" is an art color production, with a special nuisic.il score. Desire La Salle sings Bizet's "Toreador Song" and the Capi? tol male quartet sings. Mary Miles Minter is at the Rialto ;ii "Sweet L?V( rider " and after saying that a review of the picture seems superfluous. It explains itself ho thoroughly that no 011? who comes out of the theater dissatisfied can say that he was lured in under false pretenses, Mary Miles Minter is always sweet and lavender is always sweet, so if you don't like them stay away. Lavender was almost like Pollyanna, only instead of always being "glad" she was always sure of people's honesty. Our feelings on this subject are particularly keen because W2 used to share Lavender's faith. When Lav? ender trusted her thiifgs to h>r maid the maid stole them and then returned them, saying she just couldn't rob one who trusted her. Of course that was sweet of tho maid, but she looked just like the one we hired who didn't act a bit like that. Perhaps our faith was not great enough. But if Lavender was sweet she was also practical, and when she was only sixteen she fell in love with a rich student who lived in her aunt's lodg? ing house and he fell in love with her and they got their guardians' consent and lived happily ever after, Theodore Roberts is a forgetful old professor-?delightful bit, of course and Milton Siils is the hard hearted guardian.
