Is There Too Much Illusion on Stage? Miss AdAh Barton, who line Joined tho Lltttle Thentre plnycrs to enact tho role of Mrs. Jeftcote In "Hlndlo Wakes," Is not really making her debut to tho city, Blnco she once came here on tour with Mrs. William F. Kendall, playing child ish roles. "I must admit," sho Bays, "that I do not remember much of the city except tho senso of Its charm and dignity as compared with other American cities. "Philadelphia Is an exceptional city to play In, because an actress feels a sense of appreciation of her, work. Instead of tho restless demand to bo amused, which one feels In Now York and Chicago, Of course, players feel tho atmosphere of tho audience, just as much as tho audi ence feels the atmosphero of the play. "I think that nowadays, perhaps there is too much atmosphere on both sides of tho footlights. The public wants such perfection of detail, they can't 'mako bo llove,' as every one should bo ablo to do. So they must have their Illusions carofully prepared for them by masters of stage craft. "And yet I think that tho most effec tive performance I havo over taken part Jn was In Canada, whero I was playing 3luth Itolt In "Sweet Lavcndar," with lidward Terry. During the performance something went wrong with tho (lights nnd wo had to play tho cntlro second act with merely a few candles. Tho scene was more real, and certainly won more spontaneous applause, than any number ot scenes skilfully lighted with electricity." Flashes From "Stars" In the cast of "The Winning of Bar bara Worth," tho dramatization of liar old Bell Wright's novel, which .comes to tho Walnut Deccmbor 7, aro Frank La Rue, Blosser Jennings, L.

"The Sccreti" with Frances Starr, as "star," will como to the Broad Street Theatre for two weeks, November SO. David Belasco, under whose direction Miss Starr is appearing, chose "Tho Se cret" as a vehicle for Miss Starr, in order to, give her an entirely new kind of char acter to portray, Gabrlello Jannelot be ing a study of a woman's personality. Ethel Valentine, who plays tho part of Lily Wagner In "Today," which comes to the Adelpht November 30, began her career' ns the ingenuo with tho O. D. Woodward Stock Company In Kansas City and Omaha. For two seasons she played with the Suburban i-tock Company Jn St. Louis. Two summers ago ahe played leads for a while with the Or pheum Stock Company, this city, where ahe created the rolo of Lorna Doone. During her stock days sho played all aorts of roles, from Camilla to Wendy Jn "Peter ran." Richard Walton Tully, author of "Omar, the Tentmaker," has received "word that he has been chosen ns one of thirteen distinguished Callfornlans whose names have been selected to adorn the "Ha.ll of Fame" now being erected in San Francisco by the Native Sons of the Golden West Association. Other Callfor nlans who have won national reputations for themselves havo been selected from sculptors, artists and authors, and this (election of Mr. Tully's name to represent tho drama is considered a particular honor. Each of the thirteen names se lected has been allotted an art glass panel Jn the Native Sons' Auditorium. Clayton Hamilton, co-author of "Tho Dig Idea," recently produced, cites a cer tain melodrama, produced' a few years go .as containing the busiest and most Inconsistent villain ever created. In the first act he tied the beautiful heroine to a .railroad track Just as the limited was due. In the second he lured her Into an old house looked bar In an Upper room and set the place on fire. In the third he strapped her under a buzz saw and set the machinery in mo tion. In the fourth he tore the planking out of Brooklyn bridge, so that her auto mobile plunged through to the , raging flood below. In the fifth act he started to make love to her, She shrank from him.

"Let me see two, four, six, olght, ten, yes, I think It takes ten good years of hard work to becomo a real dancer," said Anna Favlowa thoughtfully, as she counted off tho years on her nimble fin ger tips. "Of course, that does not apply to everybody. Some people can never learn to dance. There is a certain amount of natural grace, and even Intelligence, that is essential. Besides, the training must start In early youth." So saying. Mile. Favlowa smoothed out n few wrinkles in her smart tailor-made, crossed her dainty feet, and settled among the cushions In her suite at the Hotel Majestic JUBt long enough to grant a short interview. The rehearsal will bo called in 20 minutes, monsieur le direo teur, had said. Altogether chic from the tip of her chamois-top shoes to her little fur hat, tho world-famous dancer presented a striking example of youth, vlvaclousness and magnetic artistic temperament. Petite, slender, with classic features, sparkling black eyes and a gorgeous amount of hair, blacker still, Tavlowa, "prima ballerina assoluta" of the Im perial Opera of St Petersburg, Is per fectly natural. That Is one of her many charms. YBARS OF TRAINING ESSENTIAL. "I would hate to discourage any lover of dancing," she said, "but like any other art, year and years of careful training are required to become really proficient. I am speaking, of course, of claBSlo dairo ing. The body, the musoles and even the bones, I thtnk, have to be molded Into shape, so to speak, and it Is a long and tedious proceeding that requires patience, 'skill nnd art. ' "Dancing, like muslo and painting, has to be learned In all stages. Four years aro required to becomo perfect in the early stages, and, In all, at least ten years are required to reach the near-state of perfection In the art." Incidentally,. Paviowa can dance any thing. She has charmed kings and em perors, Europe and America the world, in fact. Her "Dance of Today" Includes the Gavotte Renaissance, the Pavlowana and the Czarina Waltz and, like all her other performances. It la a wonder. It Is simply a scries of modern dances "gracefullzed." "The trouble with many modern dances as 'made in America' is that they are neither graceful nor artistic," she con tinued. " 'Animal dances' Is a good name for many of them, I think. Young folks will defend them, of course, but In many case the dances are Immodest. The method of holding the partner even goes against the 'grain' of the real artist who dances for art's sake. BECOMING MORE GRACEFUL. "I must say that the dances here In America aro becoming muclaaroore grace ful and comma II taut. The Hesitation is a wonderful dance, and I certainly hope that It will not die out. I am aura inai II win not uie ouu i ucuii, danced a great deal In Europe, together wfltt aHntda voelailfln nr th VlartnaiD waits, and America will follow suit. Over nero you nave to uuuw uurupa tu uauv ing to a certain extent just as you do in dress and styles. I hope you will not follow suit as far as war Is concerned.

Approximately J12.W0 was realized last night at tho Paviowa Red Cross benefit given at tho Metropolitan Opera House under the man agement of the Music League of America. The big house was filled to tho last seat by an audience that was vory apprecia tive, but had the theatre been even larger every Inch of space would have been oc cupied.

Tho first was a ballet In one act and two scenes, ar ranged by Ivan Clustln, with music by Beyor, In which the members of Pavlowa's company took tho parts of animated dolls and danced with the cxqulslto grace that has made the organization Incomparable. TR1ES TO END LIFE IN CELL Police Take Clothing From Peterson When He Attempts to Hang Himself. "Ill rather be at the bottom of the Delaware than go to Jail," said Daniel Peterson, 32 years old, 69th street and Giecnway avenue, shivering slightly as ha faced Maglstrafe Tracy In the police court at the Uth and Winter streets sta tion today. Ho had spent tho night in a cell with out his clothes after he tried to hang himself with his shirt. The police took all his clothing out df the cell to pre vent htm from committing suicide. Peterson was arrested last night at an auction salo at 8th and Race streets by Special Policeman Capron, for outbidding every one else present. Ho had no money and "gummed the game," ac cording to the auctioneer. He will spend th-next 30 days In the county prison. PIIiMB PIBB A CAR One Man Dying and 83 Badly Burned as Result of Accident. CHICAGO, Nov. 25, One man waa dying today and 33 others were suffer ing from painful burns because a lighted cigar stub came In contact with a bundle of celluloid moving picture films on a suburban train of the Burlington rail road last night. The films exploded and sent a sheet of flames through a coach full of com muters. The train was halted on a' trestle and hospital attendants were forced to slide stretchers bearing the Are victims down a steep embankment. MAY DK SQUSA TJi Qgeajt of the Movie" M0R0SC0 NOW JOINS PRODUCERS OF THE BIG PHOTOPLAYS Theatrical Manager Respon sible for "Peg o' My Heart" and "Help Want ed" Goes Into Movies. After n training which gave him ft splendid equipment, Oliver Morosco, tho young Western manager, who startled New York with two wonderfully success ful production In succession, found him self a factor In American theatricals. Morosco fit present onjoys the distinc tion of having produced plays which hold the record for long runs In Chicago. Last season ho broko the record with "Help Wanted" at tho Cort Theatre In the Windy City. This season his "Peg o' My Heart" company holds tho record of more than 200 performances with no end In sight .for tho run of this comedy triumph. It Is seldom that a manager produces two record breakers In succession In Chicago. Now that IiIb theatrical affairs nro In such slinpo, Morosco has turned his at tention to the motion picture field, hav ing allied himself with Bosworth, Inc., tho photoplay producer located at Los An geles. He comes Into the newer sur roundings fully prepared and Is Buro to bo a. factor In tho development of tho screen ilrnma. Through his long handling of original plays ho has a world of ma terial at his disposal. Being an astute showman, ho has made affiliations which place him In the foromost rankB of motion picture manufacturers at tho outset NEW "FAMOUS" PLAYS. Tho Famous Players Film Company hns secured two such noted stago successes as "Are You a Mason?" nnd "Tho Dic tator," In which they will prcsont tholr popular star, John Barrymore. In "Aro You a Mason?" Mr. Barrymore will por tray the character of Frank Perry, a dashing young married man of exuberant spirits and vivid Imagination. In "Tho Dictator," the celebrated ad venturous romanco by Richard Harding Davis, John Barrymore will appear as Brooke Travers, tho central character, a young American who Is forced by ex isting circumstances to becomo tempo rarily the dictator of n small republic In South America, who In doing so becomes the hero of many momentous situations, some comic and sortie very serious Indeed, over all of' which- ho triumphs through the old of his clever wit and never-falling audacity. When the Famous Players Included In a recent announcement of forthcoming productions Mary Plckford In a subject entitled "The Stepsister," they termed It "n genuine surprise." Just how much of a surprise It Is was disclosed when It was explained that "Tho Stepsister" Is nothing elso than a modern and original version of the century-old classic, "Cin derella." In the exquisitely fanciful fairy tale Mary Plckford portrays tho pathotlc but bewitching llttlo cinder girl, who was at last rewarded for her vlrtuo and pa tience by n splendid triumph over her haughty sisters and unkind stepmother and crowned princess and sovereign of her true love's heart. This new version of "Cinderella is a delightful blend of comedy and pathos, nnd proves a con summately artistic treat for people of all ages. AFTER LOCAL COLOR. Thomas H. Ince'a. determination to give photoplay lovers true realism in all the productions that are released by the New York Motion Picture Corporation has re sulted in his sending George Beban to Italy to make M-odd scenes for "The Italian," In -which ho Is to play the name role. This well-known actor, who, for the last five years, has been Interpreting Italian character parts. In the forthcom ing Ince production will play the part of a Venetian gondolier, about whose advent Into American life and subsequent expe riences In the heart of a busy city the plot of the story Is woven. Mr. Beban Is accompanied by an Incevllle cameraman and nfter reaching Naples he will go direct to Venice, Italy, whero the scenes will be filmed. Mr. Beban plans to em Ploy all hln assistants, actors and ac tresses abroad. This Is In line with Mr. Ince's.iepeated contention that a really successful picture must have true set tings as well as realistic acting. A motion picture development In Louis ville, Ky., which Is the first step In that city toward Introduction of films Into the publlo schools, and which Is a very de sirable Saturday morning revenue pro ducer, has Just taken form. The Parent Teacher League, nn organization of pub llo school teachers and the parents of the children they havo In charge, has taken the Initiative in the movement of which the school, children and tho Mary Anderson Moving Picture Theatre are the beneficiaries. The Louisville Board of Education has given its indorsement to the plan, and It has got under way with every indication of proving thoroughly satisfactory to all concerned. Tho Idea, primarily, Is that tho educa tional value of many of the current films may be utilized on Saturday morning when the children are out of school, and that a board of censors representing the parents and teachers of the children shall pass upon the merits or the pro gram. This removes the causes for re luctance of mothers to permit their small children to attend tho theatro. for It Insures pictures which cannot have any 111 effects. The first time It was tried In Louisville 10W children and their elders were 'divided between two performances, and they paid S or 10 cents admission, according to their ages. The second per formance, or the second two perform ances, repeated the first. This movement In Louisville has beer. confined to the- theatre named to date, and. It Is said, many of tha hundreds of children who attended got their first glimpse of motion pictures. It Is sug gested that there is enough of this busi ness possible to be divided among all tha motion picture theatres In tawn, and that neighboring boards of censors can pasa on the programs offered on Satur day mornings by other playhouses, thus making- It easy for children in all parts of the Jf to profit by the arraagswent It la aertaln that the Ivuivlll experi ment will be watched by ptetura show men In stkwr cities, and that similar sys tems will bo workad out tUera.
