3 THE LITTLE TEACHER'S REAL TEARS Tkeatye du. Vie.u.x Colvuriiier TUB Little Tencher why Thi Mlfc Teacher? Why not Just Tlio Teacher, or Kometlilng he? Why? Why, because there U that Ineffable D5uclntion of sweetness, tenderness nl beauty about the word. One's best js.rl. even should she bo a militant t' ffraglst in HrolHtingiui.tr, Is always lltt.e. Tlio amuzem of the divorce cuurt, the sympathetic reporters tell Is little. The torJ means much tnovo than size. Thus, far from Intimating that he thought of It when he chose tlio name for this play of country Joys and sor rows in Which Mary Ryan is can-ylns olf such honors at Tho Playhouse, Harry James Smith has, even with his title, touched a strlnt; of the play goer's heart, which, It seems at times, It is his well laid purpose to play. Sho ts the little teacher sweet and tender nd all that is beautiful. The cynicat Hrondnnyltc and the Bad and to bo pitied analyst may call It nil "hokum," but they aro llko an n'istcre botanist who might so meamleiin? over those sama hills of Cns?i('t Hollow seen rolling away to the blue horizon through- the window . cf Tin- I.litle Teacher's schoolroom the botanist who finds a Vermont sun-' flower and calls It HellanthuaMnsubtl-follu:-. Tho oynh-al r.ro;ultv.iitc and the aad and to be pilled analyst see, in the , flr! act, Puij. from Jersey City (the tall, broad shouldered, pleasantly smll- . Inn Curtis Cook&cy) como carrying Into the schoolroom the unconscious ffiim of Jlallstc, the stocky little for-( eisner. Hatisle, somewhere just out tlde 'he hchoolhoii'-'e, had been knocked OUt by 'Hi;. Why had he ''cn knocked out? Think that Pug is In love with The l.itlln Teacher, and think of tho most Jdc.il provocation a hero might have tor .uch an act, and the play's situa tion has tho ideal answer. Itatiste had uiil, not so very harshly, at that, that lie didn't think Thr Little Teacher w o beautiful, which Pun, -with his impetuous fiaht.ng nature, rightfully reiented. They say that is "hokum." ASJin, J,'iih7j 1IV love all her pupils, and, of course, they ,tll Uive her." T:iey like to "stay In after .school,'"! and they want to build her llres in the bijt itovc. Two of them, n little boy and girl, have drunken parents, and v''in tho drunken father comes to chuol to set them, and when they run I'jm! to "teacher" for ii'otectlon, she tflkes them under her wing. W'inid it ic Ideal for those children eur to go back to thoso drunken parents? Would It be even worth tv.'iil" to take a chance on reforming the- parents? , 1 I'milu M'est takes them home 't ' her to her'country boarding house.

T.ieio is something wrong about those parents, P.mily West pleads; tl ey cannot be tho genuine pj rents of t!"e two lovely children.

On Wednesday evening and Thurs day matinee "Les Freres Kara mazov" will again be presented. Ihursday evening will wit ness a repetition of the double bill of "La Traverse" and "Poll de Carette." On Friday evening and Saturday matinee "Les Mauvais Bergers" will be per lormed. The week's repertoirp will end with Saturday evening production of "La Traverse" and P01I de Carette." portunate pleading with tho gypsy voi;m who has c.ilM herself the mother of the children softens that Human's heart. , And who is tho real mother? Should Aw be any other than an Ideal mother? She is n kind and wealthy woman ; New York city tho little boy's "angel." And what in these times of war should happen to a hero and heroine? In this play "The l.'lttle Teacher" It happen, Pun and his friend, JlatUlc, appear In the last act drepsed In khaki and The Little. Teacher is doing-jiajrk for the Ited Cross. So It is that Mr. Smith has squeezed all the sordid things out uml left the Ideal things. Ho has seen that mod erns tolerate sorrows and the sadness of death only in opera and he bus sono them several better by giving I them happiness, goodness and tender ness. Hut. like his cholco of a name i for the play, with no objective con- mmWm " V -Sag? I. A BEATRICE MAUDE in" SEVENTEEN? scloiiness of a tender touch in the word "little." It very likely is that lie wrote tho play out of his heart and with no manufacturing of situations deliberately .to touch tile emotions of hl.s audiences. This was indicated by .Mary Kyan the other evening during a long con versation about the play and Mr. Smith. "He Is Just like a big boy," said Miss Kyan. "Ho Is very sincere and h has I been especially Interested in this pl.iv, ' uewiuso r Its sincerity He wanted to nwko it simple nnd sincere, and what 1 ' tr-yins to do now is to get ns .mi,ch simplicity Into the rolo or the.

Thero were tears in her eyes. Thero had been tears In tho eyes of many In tho audience. . "It often brings the tears," she said, In that gentleness of tone that Is a delight of her acting, "when I hear that song, 'Over There," and think of what 1 cully Is going on 'over here.' Wo can't help but be affected there are so many of our own suffering nnd dying In this war." "I thought," said her Interviewer, "when I saw tho tears in your eyes that you had been touched by tho play as many in the uudlenco were. Thei-c were many weeping.-' "Well, It la the play too.but they are happy tears tho play brings. I think she's a dear little girl tho little teacher. ' I love that last act, espe cially where the mother comes for those children and tho Ilttlo teacher gives them up. 1 think of the pathos of the kidnapping by those gypsies; It reminds me of that case a few years ago, where that child was kidnapped 1 lllinit 11 WIIH lit v-fliwl iuii inn nnd at that tlmo I felt the mother's j .

'Oh, yes," she sold. "She Is en tirely another person. I love her be cause she tries to do tho right thing all the time. I love tho way she loves those children and cares for them. Don'' you think It Is n good thing to have characters llko her on tho stage and play 'l!t bring out the good thlnge" In these times we want things that aro good. I think It Is 11 line thing, especially for young girls, to seo plays like this. I llko 10 think I am helping the lS-year-old girl. Tho girl of the clty sees this play and It will make her want the sweeter theirs of life." "Do you like looks, too books that emphasize being good and doing good, like 'Pollynnna'?" "I haven't read 'I'ollyanna,' but there Is anothor someth'ng like it that I like 'Just David. I think books like that help us." Miss Ityan's dressing room showed plainly her sincerity In these views. A table In a corner was literally cov re,l with trinkets nnd toys that the children if) her cast had hrotltrht hnr. j It seems that even off fctagu they re gard her as the little teacher. They , are genuine, children too. The little negro boy, who rolls his eyes nnd ,shoW8 his teeth In a broad imlle that catches tho entire audience, was found , the other night, between the acts, slld I lug lown n balustradu buck stage. "I love these children," said Miss Kynn. "And the little colored boy as much as the rest. They nre all good i actors, too, don't you think? They come to me with their questions and bring me theso things oh, 1 havo a lot of fun with them off the stage as well as on." There, could be no doubt that Miss Kyan oo.. Her xolii and her actions off stage are marked by that same tentlernesj she. bus Jn the play. Be sides the toys tho children hail given her, indicating this in her charaiter, she had on the wall above the table that I'salm which ends: "Surely, good ness and mercy shall follow me nil the days of my life, ami 1 will dwell in the house of the Lord forever." CUTTING PRICES. By Hit IIAItl) tV.iJ.TO.Y TILLY. In these days of nervousness In-the theatre suggestions are rampant ns to ways and means of bettering affairs, especially financial. Numerous people have declared that the price of theatre tlcle!s Is loo high and that the gross Intake would be. greater If tho prices wero generally lower. I doubt if' this would prove to be tho case. The standard $2 scale as applied In practically all Now York theatres has been a proved success through a long term of years. Again and again the public; have shown a proved disposition to pay for their tickets accordingly when the fare set before them has been tempting. Now that days of financial stress have come upon u., I believe that the public are quite as willing as ever to pay regula tion prices fof amusemc'nt, especially since they aro paying inflated prices fur nil the commodities of life. At this lime when the theatre manager Is faring increased expenses in nearly every department of his business, to vJUNE CONGRENB "WJ1EHC ROGUES FALL OUTt tTJ ay nothing of the handicap of in- cie.ised tae. playgoers wl',1 scarcely jtiuibbl,. at doing their shaie. If j malingers give the public plays they want to oe there will be no grumblins at paying regular prices. 1 Of coitise atti actions for which desirable tickets nio never kept at the box office, the public being obliged to pay all sorts of fancy prices from I agencies to procure suitable locations, come unSer an entirely different head ing. The public Is getting tired of being thus gouged, and with the in flation of prices to such unrenonab!e extents I hnveabsolutely 110 sympathy. It hurts business for everybody and In iho end will react most strongly' ugalnst thoso who have shared In tho extortion. On tho other hand, though, I can seo no sound recson why' regular the atre prices should bo cut. When the Government Imposed a tax of 10 per cent, upon theatre tickets there was a great hue und cry ns to whether or not it would hurt business.' After the first few nights I cannot m-o that It did, The public soon lieeanio iicimis tomed to the comparatively small Addi tional charge, which after nil was not large enough to work hardships upon uny theatregoers Several theatres im mediately announced that they would pay the war tax for their patrons' that Is, deduct 10 per 'cent, for the Gov-I ernment from the regular purchase I price of tickets.- Tho nltrulstlo p'port ' of this policy Is (scarcely apparent, and 1 ,,,.- ,,., i,, ..., ,,r ,(, .,... ... ,., , ' f having tho nurchaser o.av the - - , . ' ". 1,1 ",,J "u ernment Intended In tho first place. In other words tho bait of n small dis count of 10 per cent, failed to lure suf ficient additional patrnnugo to offset the loss of revenue to the theatre. Now moro recently another theatre has lowered its prices on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, cnnrging on inose nignis ?i.:u ami i for orchestra seats Instead of 12, which rogul'ir sen In prevails during tho last half of tho week. I cannot seo where this will work out to any permanent advantage. .Several years ngo 0110 en-, 1 terpilsing manugcr tried the expert- zJmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmW MmW ' ment of presenting n new play with a iormidablo cast nt n llroadwuy the atre with tho best tickets for fttiy per formance priced nt $1. Two or 'three weeks, I believe, was the length of tho engagement. Tlio public found tho play not to Its liking, und when a play Is not liked people In any considerable numbers are not going to seo It slrnply liecnuso they can buy tickets for half what It would cost them to see some other play that they really want to witness. And If the plrfy had been a real success, tho theatre cotrld have filled Just as readily n't tho i scale m at the (1. Indeed this whole Idea of lowering prices dnrlnrr the llrst part of tho week Is rfot a new one, but an old one, nnd was worked nt least n dozen years no on tho I'aclflc coast, nut oh I will ondeavor to show late'r, tho scheme has opportunities to succeed In week stands that nre not possessed In New York. At the present time the cutting r.f prices will havo no material effect. Doubtless there will be a few persons attracted by tho saving of 50 cents during the first half of the week, but xery few, and even ft). It Is difficult to determine how may of these very patrons wouldn't go to the play with out tho cheaper prices. When the wife nt the dinner table suggests to her husband that she Whuld llko to nee such and such a play that evening the husband Is going to have a hard time getting her to go seo a play not of hrr cholco simply becaus.; they can recuro orchestin feats for SO rents apiece less. And besides, In nearly every theatre In New York good llrst balcony seats can be obtained for any performance at $1.50 and t eats that are good enough for any b.Kly to sit In. Henco of what avail to lower the orchestra scale during the first h.ilf of tho week? In fact this very reduction In scale has for a long time prevailed for mat lneea In practically all New York thea tres. The .jest Feats at the Wednes day matinees are nearly always $l.p0, while at Ihe Saturday matinees the $2 scale prevails. Yet any manager will tell you that tho receipts at the Saturday matinees average at least double what they do on Wednesdays. If people prefer tmat'tend matinees on Sat unlays they nre not going to fore go xt his preference for the saving of .'0 cents. This cutting nf prices tinting the first part of the week has leen worked succe.s.sful"y in tlio so-calTed week stands of the country. Hut not In New York, where plays are booked for runs, whtno plays the public want to Fee pro per despite the hold-up method-? of ticket sHculatorf, and where plays the public does not want to see can no longer tempt eyen dead head audiences. It all comes down to a ImsLs of economics. If the play Is one the public wants, crowds will tomo and pay the $2 scale Just as willingly I as the J1.S0, but If the play isn't one that finds favor, profitable business cannot be expected by reducing prices to $1 r.rt or to $1. And the average New Yorker who would like to attend the theatic on say Friday evening Is hardly going to postpone his evening's amusement to attend the same attrac tion the following Tuesday evening because his ticket will cost him Jlfty cents less. And granting that a few GRACE LA RUE rt the PALACE THEATRE " pations might delllH'iately choose an evening in the first part of tho week because of the "bargain into" offered, there is no way of proving that the very same patron, seized with sufil clont deslro to see the play in ques tion, would not gladly havo paid the customary t'l hud no bargain Is-en offered him, or havo sat in the cheaper seats In the balcony. The thing that will breed prosperity for the theatre Is not bargain prices, but win thy attraction". When the thirty theatres, in New York can offer playgoers thirty good plays there will Ui no talk of theatrical hard times. One inane play produced In 11 slipshod manner and Indifferently nctrel can "CHEER-UP!" This coming week Charles Dillingham's "Cheer-Up!" at the Hippodrome enters upon the eighth month of its phenomenal run at the big playhouse. The week just past was the largest in point of attendance since this record season began last August and the colossal' pageant with it additional novelties and new stars seems to enjoy an even greater vogue to-day than it did earlier in the season. For a pro duction of such gigantic propor tions Mr. Dillingham works won ders in keeping the interest con stantly alert and alive, as there is always something new to be seen when a return visit is paid to the v. nippoarome. r i I I keep moro peojilo from attending other theatres then can ever bo attracted to tho theatregolng habit through tho Haunting of i educe1 priors.
