SERIOUS THEMES IN
FOR NEXT WEEK
New Belasco Play Deals
With Feminine Jealousy,
"Today" With Feminine
Is every woman possessed by the demon
of jealousy? Does It gain ascondancy
sooner or lator In every woman's life?
Is It Ineradicable from the feminine na
turoT Such Is tho opinion of Henri Bern
stein, tho distinguished French dramatist,
whose play, "The Secret," will open at
the Broad Street Theatre Monday, with
Trances Starr In tho leadlnc role.
In "The Secret" M. Bornstoln dra
matically expresses his none too flatter
ing opinion of the fair sex. And In tho
character of Madame Qabrlelle Jnnnelot
he portrays a character charming, loving
and loved swayed and distorted by the
sinister green passion. "Jealousy," M.
Bernstein has sold, "Is an Integral cle
ment of the feminine nature. Sooner or
-.-later If. will master a woman. Madame
Jannelot, of my play, Is Jealous even of
people's happiness when she Is not the
cause of their happiness. She cannot
even endure seeing her husband made
happy by his sister, and, pretending to
be the sister's champion, for years
Bohomes to bring about an alienation.
Yes, I bellevo she represents a phase of
the character of every woman."
Whether one agrees with M. Bernstein
oV not, he has written a compelling play,
nnd one In which Frances Starr, during
the long run In New York, showed her
superemlnent abilities as on emotional
actress. The production of a Belasco play
is alwifys an event of Importance, and,
having seen the play In New York, wo
can conscientiously recommend It.
In "Today," by George Broadhurst and
Abraham Schomer, there Is presented the
problem of feminine extravagance. The
play deals with a wife's desire for gaudy
clothes and a social position. Hero Is
Indeed a problem not unfamiliar In life.
The wife In this cajie la tempted to de
ceive her husband, whereupon, to quota
the press agent, she "is dashed to the
rocks of destruction."
This past week has been the banner
luwmcu wee or tno season from a
box office standpoint Every show In
town may be said to be a hit The
houses have sold out, and the apathy
of audiences vanished in encoring enthu
siasm. Just how much all this may be
. due to the football game and the Thanks
giving spirit, cannot, of course, be as
certained. But the attractions all In
trinsically deserved the appreciation
they received. Both "High Jinks" and
"The Queen of the Movies" are amus
ing comedies, filled with swinging, lilt
lng. hypnotising songs and dances, and

In "Tho Queen of tho Movies," at tho
Forrest, you already know that. But

stage. If you have not had tea with
her at the St. James, there are some
things you do not know. MIbs De Sousa
has opinions original, startling and sane
opinions, on many phases of life.
"Don't expect to nnd me a romantic
person today," laughed Miss De Sousa
tho other afternoon, Just as the waltor
bowed and awaited orders for It was

and no woman can be romantlo if she has

the brilliant comedienne clapped her

of the greatest hindrances to the success
of the cause are some of tho women who
pose as leaders.
"It Is unfortunate," she said, "that the
cause should attract a lot of women whose
only Interest Is to get Into tho news

Ah, life Is a matter of reciprocity, and a
sense of dependence often gives strength.
If men could get along without women,
where would w bel A woman com

And when women set themselves apart as
interdependent, when they become ag

merely show their weakness. Now, It Is

NEVER BE MADE
"SAFE AND SANE"
jor Should It Be, Writes
Frances Starr, "Star" of
"The Secret" at the Broad.
Zest in Its Uncertainty.
By FRANCES STARK
Certainly tho topic of marriage Is a
democratic topic. Like death, maTrlags
is ono of llfo's two greatest ndvontures.
I would keep It an adventure. Thora
is a growing tendency today, symbolized
by the movement which tlnunts on Its
banner tho ugly name of "eugenics,'1 to
ratlonatlze marriage and to reduce It to
an exact science, llko ch'ess But healthy
people havo always preferred cards and
dlco to chess, Just because cards and
dlco involve chance. I would not tako
away from marrfago nil Its risks, for
that would bo to tako nway Its adven
turesomething wo cannot too much cher
ish In an ago wherein people want to
be suro of everything, even their wives.
Thore Is something craven and cow
ardly, for example, In the man who pas
sionately wants to go to a foreign city,
but lms no monoy and docs not daro to
tako his chanco of making a living there,
Thero Is something equally craven and
cowardly In tho man who wants to marry
a girl, but doesn't daro to becauso ho
Is not suro that instead of eternal hap
piness with her ho may not have per- ,
potual bickering and misery "When we bo
come timid of all adventuro we don't
deserve to havo wives or husbands.
Marrlngo ought to bo only for the bravo.
Every time I read of a runaway mar
riage or olopoment, every time I read
of a romantic or so-called foolish match,
I draw fresh Inspiration from tho fact
that courage Is not yet dead. Of course,
many such marriages turn out badly.
Yet, unless wo have somo marriages
which turn out badly wo shall never,
strictly speaking, havo any marriages
which turn out well Bettor a thousand
times a few mistakes than that marrlngo
should become n colorless certainty of a
dead level of comfort.
At times I almost feel Inclined to lay It
down as a hard and fast rule, "Marry
young or don't marry at all," for as
wo grow older our powor of Illusion grows
less We becomo painfully analytical
and see tho obverse side of the medal In
And as for falling In love, It becomes
Increasingly ditllcult every year after 20,
until, possibly, ono reaches what In
Tranco they call tho "dangerous age,"
when a rush of second youth, a sort of
romantic second wind, leads women of
40 or thereabouts to lllng tliomsolyes Into
nil kinds of adventure. But marriages
contracted In this artificial and short
lived romantlo period what might bs
called the sentimental period nearly al
ways turn out disastrously. Youth Is the
nutural tlmo for contracting marriages.
Wiseacres have always bewailed youth
ful and romantic marriages, on tho
ground that young peoplo aro not com
petent to Judgo. But If peoplo waited
until they were competent to Judge they
would bo very apt not to marry at all.
