THE DRAMA i -7 IDA HAMILTON At the Little Theatre, FLASHES FROM '"STARS'' The present revival of Clyde Fitch's play, "The Truth," with Grnco George In tho leading role, at tho Adelphl Theatre, Is the first of the distinguished dramatist's plays to be given since his death at ciinlons-sur-Marne, France, In 1300. As It was maintained that all of Fitch's plays were written with n soit of jour nalistic cyo for tho news of tho day, and were, therefore, ephemeral, many were curious to seo how "Tho Truth" would stand tho test of tlmo seven years nftcr the original production with Clnra Bloodirood. The production made by Wlnthrop Ames, In New York last Easter, was a complete vindication of Fitch. Many reminiscences relative to Mr. Fitch's brilliant career nro being related. An old-time admirer of Mr. Fitch declared the othrr day that tho secret of his thorough success wns his penchant for taking ndvico from any ono whoso Idea yeomed good. "Ho respected tho counsel of a janitor as welt as that of a states man. Ho was always willing to give any Idea a trial without trusting absolutely to his own judgment. His motto seemed to bo to let tho people decide. Tho result was success." "The Yellow Ticket" will como to the Oar rlck Theatre, beginning Tuesday evening, Octo ber 13. Tho reason for opening on Tuesday evening is that the original company, headed by Florence Roed, Edwin Arden, Sydney Booth, Edward Maw son, Daid Torrence, Macey Jlnj' Ian and Mnud Leslie, will Jump from Chicago after tho Sunday night porformnnco on October 11, and come direct to the Oarrlck. "Tho Yel low Ticket" deals with tho adventures of a poor Jewish girl In St. Petorsburg. Fanny Ward, that sparkling and popular comedienne, will appear at tho Broad Street Theatre In the piquant farco from the French. "Madam President," the week of October 0. Miss Ward made a triumphant success as Co bette, the leading woman of "The Pet of tho Harem" company. Tho base of most farces is mistaken identity, and "Madam President" 1 nn exception, for as soon as one of the char. actcrs arrives on the sceno, he or she is Imme diately taken for some ono else.

"In 'The Prlnco of Peace' a history of the world will bo epitomised und unfolded in a series of utago pictures that will be realistic in their revelations of bloodshed, of tyranny, of selflshnoss and of the tragic misery and de vastation following in the train of wars." said Mr. Belasco. "The drama shows t'hnst as the first apostle of peace and is woven together and made appealing!' human by the use ot the character In legendary lore. Cartaplnlus. the Roman doorkeeper for Pllnt who struck Jesus as He came out of the Hall of Judgment. Therefore, this grim character is mado the Danto that wanders with mnjstir sadness through the world, the philosophio observer of nil trut transpires in the tentuilcs down which he travels. " 'The Prince of Peace' Is expected to be the strongest argument that has been urged for a fomnwn brotherhood of man And In these days of war Its appeal should be abso lute and undeniable, for it Is the purpose of it sponsors to tell a story that un be under stood and appreciated by all.
