TWO "FLORO" GIRLS,
NOW BEARING TITLES,
COMING TO AMERICA
1 * i
Members 'of the original **Floro
j dora" sextet, two of the famous
J beauties now married into the British j
; nobility, will soon be seen in Amer- (
i ica. it was learned yesterday. i
Broadway theatergoers will hardly I
, recognize behind the name of Lady j
' Ashburton the beautiful Frances Bel-,
j mont. who was one of the favorites
of the bevy which helped to make the
' play such a success. Lady Ashburton
1 recently arrived her* after her first
I visit since 1W?>. and Mrs. Stock is due
{ to arrive soon.
I Lady Ashburton first became known
i as one of the scrub lady's chorus In
"My Lady," graduating from that
j role to the more conspicuous berth
of a "Florodora" girl. Shortly after
I she. went to Londorj, she met Lord J
i Ashburton. a member of the wealthy |
I Barring family, to whom she was
| married. She left the stage for the
; life of a great lady on an Kn?llsh
i estate and became prominent for her
\ philanthropies.
| Mrs. Stock, as Camille Clifford, was
; another of the sextet beauties. She
| came to America from Sweden in tbe
| steerage. After being a lady's maid
j *he wont on the stage and eventually
I became one of the sextet. l^at?9 she
| was featured in the first "Prince of
Pilsen" company which went to Lon
don. As the original "Gibson Girl"
she attracted attention and was soon
! married to the Hon. Henry Lyndhurst
I Bruce, jr.. heir to the earldom of
Aberdare. Mr. Bruce was killed at
Ypres where he served in the Scots
I Guards. Ills widow was married a
j year later to Arthur Stock, of Eng
I lnnd, who also saw service in the
war.
Florenz Ziegfeld, jr.. has con
firmed the report that he is to build
a theater as the permanent New
York home of Billie Burke and her
company. His plans are so far un
der way that he is in possession of
the architect's drawings for the
structure. However, he in not yet
ready to reveal the site that has
been selected.
Miss Burke has long wanted to
appear in some of the old English
comedies, and with her great success
in "Caesar's Wife." and in view of
the praise that has been bestowed
upon the strong company appearing
in her support In thai play at the
Liberty, Mr. Ziegfeld decided not
only to present Miss Burke next
sprivffr in a revival of "The School
for Scandal" (she will play I?ady
Teasle, of course), but he will mak*
her present company a permanent
organisation. house it in Miss
Burke> new theater, and there
each spring he will present her in a
revival of an old 'comedy.

i expensive rugs. and artistic draperies.

j "For 'A Girl Named Mary,' " un
ifiwered the studio man.
A puzzled look came into the ques
tioTfcr's eyes, but he walked along
I further through the barn-like struc
ture. Huge iK)xes of crated furniture
were piled in one corner. The ticket
read. "For 'A Girl Namfd Mary.'" I
j "Lucky Mary," thought the explorer.
! He paused outside an entrance
labeled "Private Projection Room"
with that curiosity which all of us
have about anything fnarked "Pri- j
vate." A dainty little miss who wa?
i just passing watched him an instant,
I hesitated, then:
"Would you like to in and fee 'A
Girl Named Mary?" " she inquired
smilingly. -
He recognized her. It was Mar
guerite Clark. So he answered gal
lantly.
"On the contrary ] should like to
stay here and see a girl named Mar
guerite."
AN EMINENT EI
In the new musical comedy to be j
presented by Messrs. Comstock and
Gest this coming week. Ivan Simpson I
has one of the leading roles in support
of Harry Fox. the featured star of
"Zip-Goes a Million." Mr. Simpson is
jan English actor, who has supported
I many of the internationally known
stars. His tirst part was with the late
j Sir Henry Irving in his Shakespearean
repertoire and the great historical
spectacles for which the noted Eng
lish artist was famed.
Mr. Simpson Joined Sir Herbert
Tree's company at His Majesty's The
ater when that actor produced "The
Darling of the Gods" and "The Resur
rection." He came to America with
that unusually quaint actor. E. S.
Willard. with whom he played many
parts in such dramatic gems as "The
Middleman." "The Professor's I .ova
Story," and some old revivals of the
comedy classics. The late Charles
Frohman engaged Mr. Simpson to
support John Drew in "The Single
Man" and 'The Speckled Band."
Cohan and Harris engaged him to ap- ?
pear with Douglas Fairbanks in
"Hawthorne. V. S. A " and liter ap- j
peared in the Riggers' melodrama.
?Inside the Unes." This was the first j
war play produced in New York.
After this engagement he returned

j "Hut you can do both." Miss Clark
J returned brightly, "by going Inside.;
{'A Girl Named Mary' is my latent pic
jture and they're showing it now."
} Incidentally Loew's Palace Theater J
j begins a week's showings of "A (Jlrl I
Named Mary" next week.
It is an appealing bit of girl-pay- j
chology that Marguerite Clark un
folds in "A Girl Named Mary." She
has the role of a stenographer living
in a humble flat with a woman whom
jshe has always called mother. A rich
' widow has be*-n searching for 15 years
j for her daughter who was carried
j away, involved in a train wreck, and
' never heard from again. The widow
j suddenly discovers that Mary, the
! stenographer, is the lon? sought-for
i girl and she pours out her heart to
! her, offering her ease and luxury in
; stead of her humble life of toil.
13Uary> heart is torn with conflicting
(emotions. She hardly knows her real
mother and she has learned to love
j her foster-mother dearly. At first
1 she icbels at the elegance and lofty
i tastes of the widow's household and
runs awa>. But finally a certain
young man. the sweetheart of her less
! prosperous days, cleans up the diff
iculty by asking her hand in marriage.

home and enlisted In the British
army, serving four years In France.
Mr. Simpson upon his return to
America this fall was engaged by Mr.
Comstock to appear in "The Rode of
China." but was later transferred to
?Zip-Goes a Milli<fti."
This latest of Comstock and Gest
musical productions will be seen , at
Toll's beginning next Monday, with
Christmas matinee Thursday, before
going into the Princess Theater. New
York.
"The Wayfarer." which claims to
I be neither drama nor pageant nor
opera, but merely a story, was pre
sented by the Interchurch World
Movement at Madison Square Gar
Iden. New York. Monday night. Be
ing neither drama nor p&fteant nor
I opera, it is hard to arrive at any
critical conclusion regarding the
j entertainment?if an entertainment
i it may bo called. Suffice it to *?ay
that "The Wayfarer" la a beauti
fully told story that has for ita
main dramatic points, scenes In the
life of Christ, wonderfully produced
by a company that numbers more
than l.OrtO. in a manner that left a
spiritual impression upon the vast
audience that witnessed its per
I formance.

MIM CATHERINE CRAWFORD
Theatergoers this week have dis- 1
covered at the Gayety a burlesque
show. "The Step Lively Girls." *hich
is most refreshingly different. In
onr of the scenes the girls?all of
'em young: and beautiful, too?actual
ly appear in regular honr*t-to-Peic
street dresses; and they're mighty
alluring little dresses, at that'
Mi*? Katherine CVawford certainly
desene* a lot of credit for *u?h
harmonious and delightful costuming
r.s this attraction exhibits, and for
her courageous breaking away from
slageland'a tradition that burlesque'
girls must disport themselves in at- j
tire that reminds one of an opium |
smoker's dream.
As you will perhaps remember# j
Miss Crawford wns formerly on
Keith's circuit with her 'Fashion
Girls." and before that with Lady
Duff-Gordon. This \undoubtedly ac-j
counts for the really beautiful cos
tuming of the "Step Lively Girls.'*
And, since every girl likes pretty
clothes snd Is at her best in them,
that's pi-obabiy why there's such an
unusual amount of life and anima- I
tlon in the entire show.
