"Klbert Hubbard claimed that no Now Yorkers were over born In' this metropolis," says Miss Blnney, "but L'ra Klbortus was wrong where I'm loncorncd, for 1 wouldn't bo born jinj-where elso but New York: no, not for anything In the whole wide Ivor-Id!" I J However, Constanco Blnney did tomlescend to leave tho "one and only flty" long pnougli to go to a convent jn Paris, wlioro sho received all her farly education. .

"I had already taken lessons rom' (Jecchettl, that wonderful seventy-enr-old maitro do ballet of the Ballet lfusse, who taught Pavlowa, Nijlnskl and .so many others. Then 1 began lessons with Alberteri, with whom I apn still .studying. Until tho time should come when he could use me in pantomime Mr. Amea placed me, ear lier this season, in a small p.-irt In 'Saturday to Monday.' I was In this production, which unfortunately did nbt have a very long life, when Ouy Bolton and Robert Milton happened te see me ono night when they were looking for" youthful talent for 'Oh, Lady, Lady!' "Mr. Bolton made me a very nlco offer to Join William Klllott and F. Hay Cemstock's company, and Mr. '.Ames consented to loan me to their management, o hero I am and that's ajl thero is to it." "But that isn't all by any means," Vaudeville and Burlesque. Grace La Rue returns to vaude ville, appearing as the chief en tertainer at the Palace Theatre this week. She will sing her newest songs.

According to 'Bolton, Who with P. O. Wodehouas wrote the book and lyric for "Oh, Lady, Ladyl" which by tho way, In aplto of war tlmei, haa proved tho moat popular and thus far tha moat financially euo cessfut of all th five annual Prlnceta Theatre musical comedy productions,' lip and Mr. Milton never thought of Mis Hlnney a a dancer at all, but merely as a very attractive looking: i ycung girl who could play a very small part In the new musical attrac 1 tlon. "Hut all the while she was rehears ing tho maid's part Miss Blnney kept , naylng, 'You know 1 can dance too. Ileally, I dance much better than 1 act,' and we kept saying, 'Yes, yes, but go on with tho rehearsal.' However, !he'n a persistent little body, Is Mr i i Hlnney, and finally, In a tone of 'for neaven s sane lers get. it om oi ner system quickly,' one day wo decided 1 to let her show us what she could do.

Wo Immediately got to work to find nn opportunity for her to a'ct as Carl Kandall's partnor In the second net, and tho strange part of It all Is that all this time 'wo were Interviewing ono dancer after another trying to And somo one good enough to shore laurels with young Randall, who, as every one known, Js one of tho cleverest dancers on the stago to-day." Mis Blnney, not satisfied with a speaking and danclnjr part, is now studying singing. with Robert 1 rosea, as she fully expects to bo at least a i prima donna next reason.

Tlio management states that there will bo no war plays and no war tax at this entertainment, and that in con sequence of the length of the pro gramme the curtain will rise at 1:30 o'clock. The L'saacs are coming to New York city early in March with an original play of the musical comedy variety entitled "Goodbye Bill."

Finally Jio was urged to forsake a prospective collego' career for one on the stage, and after much discussion his parents consented to send him to Europe for training. After e-eral seasons of opera and concert DOR IX RANKIN ' in " THE COPPERHEAD " work he decided to Join a theatrical stock company In order tr obtain training for a musical comedy career, as Mr. Qulxano believes that musical comedy offers a wider range for hla voiru and theatrical ability.

Arthur Hopkins announces that he haa .concluded negotiations with Mme. Nazi mo va whereby he will present tho actress in a repertoire of Ibsen plays for the spring season at his Plymouth Theatre. The engagement 'will begin Monday, March 11, and during Its course It Is planned to present Mme. Nazlmova, whose name Is more closely Identified with the dramas of the Scan dinavian master than that of any other player, In several of the roles In which she achieved her greatest fame. To begin the Ibsen season Mr. Hop kins haa chosen "The Wild Duck," one of the most widely discussed dramas of the I been series In spite of the fact that It has been less-universally acted than a majority of the others. It has never been given in this country In English, but haa been acted on the foreign' language stage, the most re cent presentations having been thoso of Rudolf Christians and his German stock company last season at the Ir ving riacc. "The Wild Duck," how ever, has been a favorite vehicle of continental actors, and has been pre sented on severnl occasions In London. Tho most recent of theae was Gran ville Barker'? production in 1905 at the Cqurt Theatre, with himself in the role of lljaimar and Miss Dorothy Mlnto as HtavAo, "The Wild Duck" will be followed by revivals selected from "A Doll's House," "Hedda Gablcr" and "Tho Master Builder." Which of these and the order In which they will; bo given has not been' definitely determined, but tho time devoted to each will neces sarily bo short because o the lateness or' the season and Mr. Hopkins's desire to have the engagement na compre hensive as possible. Tho company that will appear with Mme, Nazlmova Is being asac mMed and rehcursals will be begun immediately. Settings for the productions will be designed by Robert E. Jones.

Of hla fourth piny, "Polly With a Past," Georgo Mlddleton was hla collaborator. Guy Bolton Is still a young man. His literary career began at the age of 19 as a story writer for the Bmart Bet Magazine. He continued writing for the' magazine until 1914, practising architecture at tho same time. In this year his first play, "Tho Rule of Three," was written and ran for sev eral months at tho Harris Theatre In New York. In the summer of 1914 Mr. Bolton went to England and wrote a play wl(h Horace Annesloy Vachell. The war put an end to Ita production and he returned to America, producing "Tho Fallen Idol," a problem play, at the Comedy Theatre and then his first musical comedy, "90 Degrees in the Shade," nt the Knickerbocker. A month or two later this prolific playwright produced the first of the Princess musical comedlea "Nobody Home," fol lowing it with "Very Good Eddie." Tho same year, 1914, he wrote his first play with George Mlddloton. Finding, however, that this play had the same basic idea as one Just com mence! by George M. Cohan, Messrs. Bolton and Mlddleton fused the two plays together and produced "Hlt-the-Trall Holliday." The next year, 1916, Mr. Bolton pro duced "Miss Springtime," an original comedy to which he adapted an old score of Emmerich Kalman's. Dur ing the samo season ho also wrotn, this Ime in collaboration with P. G. Wodehouse, "Have a Heart" nnd "Oh, Boy!" Counting this year's plays six teen companies in tho United States aro playing in Bolton productions. Mr. Bolton is by no means Inactive even at tho presont. He has in mind writing the words and lyrics for a comedy for which Fritz Krelsler will write the music, and in which Mmo. Namara (Mrs. 'Bolton In private life), will take the leading role.
