THE PRESIDENT—‘®t’s a Boy."
The week's play by the President
Placers, "It's a Boy." proves to be
especially well adapted to the capa
bilities of the members of the stock
organization, and the opening per
formance last evening revealed in
most effective way the amusing fea
tures of that excellent comedy. There
were countless laughs throughout the
three acts and prologue written by
■William Anthony McGuire, and no
meftiuer of the company failed to
come through with sorrre contribu*-
tten to the general hilarity, while
tnere Is also a real story with gen
uine dramatic Interest.
It Is the old game—the young man
engaged in a prosperous business,
which he has built up through his
own energy and capacity: the big
company that desires to control his
growing system of chain stores, and
the offer, which he accepts, of a large
salary with the established organiza
tion on condition that he sell out his
own enterprise, only to find at the
end of a year that his services are
not wanted and that he has not only
lost his own business, but the sub
stitute job as well. Then it Is back
to the old home town, the assistance
by friends and neighbors into a new
Mne of activity, and the prospective
return of prosperity.
John Litel, as Chester Blake, the
young business man. and Edith King,
as his wife. Phyllis, whoae desire for
luxury has led to the unfortunate in
cidents of the work in the big city,
have excellent roles, in which they
combine the amusing experiences of
the birth of a first’ child and the
more serious phases of disappoint
ment in their financial Affairs, the
latter involving moments in which
their acting is marked by strength of 1
Adrian Morgan, as William O’Toole, !
friend of Blake, cast for a juvenile I
part this week, proves to be a strong !
member of the company, well adapted [
to the comedy which is abundantly
supplied and a lively figure through
out the scenes of the play. Eunice
Hunt, the new ingenue, as Marjorie )
Fletcher, friend of Mrs. Blake, also
contributes to the success of the pro
duction. while Helen Travers, as Mary
Grayson, grandmother of the baby,
continues her excellent work.
The others in the cast, all of whom 1
are deserving oK praise, are J. Irving ;
White, as Judson Blake, the grand j
father; Milton Boyle, as Maurice Hem
mendinger, interet'.fng dealer in pre- |
clous stones; Awics Grant, as Rita 1
Pendleton: Leo v-indhard. as R. W. j
Pendleton, representative of big bust- I
ness; Gustave Bowhan, as Uev. David 1
Talbot, who officiates at the Chris* j
tening. and Joseph Alienton. as Ken
neth Holmes.
KEITH'S—Miss Patricola.
An excellent program, music and 1
comedy predominating. Is offered this I
week at Keith's, that very popular sing- I
er. Miss Patricola. occupying the top- i
line position. Miss Patricola made a
wonderful hit at this place last year
when she appeared before a Washing
ton audience for the first time and her
reception last night was Just as etn- j
Phatic, as at least a dozen curtain calls t
were given her and she finally had to
beg off with a neat little speech of |
thanks. Her offering consisted of new
dialect songs and every one went over I
with a mighty punch. She also 'abcom- 1
panied herself with a violin in one num- i
ber. demonstrating her ability in that |
Another good number was that offered I
by George Austin Moore, who sings
well with several dialects to help out
and is assisted by a clever little lady
who comes from the audience on an in
vitation from Moore, who has been
pleading in a song for a partnes. The
couple work well together and put over
several songs that are new and catchy.

Paul Specht and his splendid orches
tra shared honors with the topliners,
the audience demanding numerous en
cores from the combination and never
Beaming to tire of the tuneful jazz aire
offered. Paul Decker and company have
a new playlet, entitled ''Doubt,'' and it
was presented so cleverly as to cause
numerous laughs and hearty applause.
Baggert and Sheldon opened the pro
gram with a clever juggling act; Moore
and Freed proved to be a.good musical
team ; Roye and Maye were seen in an
exceptionally fine dancing act that
scored an emphatic hit; the Arnaut
Brothers were entertaining as bird imi
tators, and the usual house atractlons
fill out the program. i . •
COSMOS—‘The Carnival of Venice.’
The vaudeville and photoplay head
liners this week of the Cosmos
Theater bill, alone probably offer
finer entertainment for the money
charged for admission than Wash
ington has had before. “The Car
nival of Venice." greatly improved
in setting and costuming and also by
the addition of two fine dancing num
bers, returns with Mile. Donatella,
the wonderful tambourlnlst, heading
the galaxy of artists that compose
the company. While their selections
still include the attractive Italian
classic numbers, there is a cohoession
to the modern spirit of Jazz which,
with Mile. Donatella's tambourine,
makes an applause-winning combina
tion. The number runs longer than
formerly and Is well worth seeing
and hearing.
The remainder of the acts make
largely for laughter are, some
of them, both novel and very amus
ing. They include Boyle and Ben
nett in a great eccentric dance offer
ing under the billing “Scrambled
Legs," which offers both clever art
and comedy; Fisher and Gilmore in
j a laughable sketch. "Her Bashful
I Romeo," in which a desperate modern
1 Juliet finally lands a rustic Romeo
who is always funny and never over
j does; Monroe Brothers, the “Bounc-
I Ing Babies," In their well known
j tramp comedy and net hounding,
i which offers something exceptional
and smooth in the way of acrobatics;

Chaperone." with a chaperone quite
