HOOVER IS SILENT ON CONFERENCES Makes No Comment on Tariff Discussions Upon Return From Camp. Upon his return today from his moun tain retreat in Virginia President Hoo ver had no comment to make regarding the series of conferences he had with Senators Watson of Indiana and Sackett of Kentucky in respect to the tariff revision legislation. There was no mistaking the fact that the President was eager to be fully ad vised as to the progress of the Senate tariff bill, but he appeared more in the roll of a listener than anything else while talking to the two members of the Senate finance committee at his camp. These two Senators discussed the bill in some detail, but are under stood to have devoted their attention principally to the sugar schedule. While the President Is represented as having asked these visitors many ques tions, he declined to define his own position to them. He Is known to be pleased with the reduction in the rate on raw Cuban sugar to 2.20 cents a pound made by the Republican ma jority in the Senate finance committee. It has been explained in his behalf that his purpose in declining to commit him self is that he considers it the duty of Congress to fix rates that fully meet the economic situation and that he feels the Executive could not help legislative work by voicing his opinions during the preliminary period. • Mrs. Hoover Remains at Camp. The President left his camp on the Rapidan at 6:50 o'clock this morning and arrived at the White House at 10:30. Mrs. Hoover and their son Allan, who have been living at the camp lor more than two weeks, remained. It Is not known just when they will return. Apparently Mrs. Hoover plans to stay in the mountains \. Ith her son for some time, as she sent for Miss Roberta Braddock, one of her social secretaries, who will be with her for several days. The President looked more refreshed and had a better color than during the first day at the camp, when his pallor and weariness were commented upon by several of those who saw him. He was > represented today as feeling in great shape, and Lieut. Comdr. Joel T. Boone, his physician, who was with him dur ing the week end, said today that the President is in splendid condition. The other members of the President’s week end party returned to Washington with him. They were Henry P. Fletcher, Ambassador to Italy; Com modore Ernest Lee Jahncke, Assistant Secretary of the Navy; William P. Mac- Cracken. Assistant Secretary’ of Com merce in Charge of Aeronautics, and Mrs. MacCracken; Capt. Allen Buch anan. naval aid to the President, and Mrs. Buchanan; Representative Frank lin Fort of New Jersey, Mark Sullivan, author and newspaper correspondent, of this city; Lawrence Ritchie, one of the President s secretaries, and James Logan, a personal friend from New York. ' No Engagements Today. During the weekly horseshoe pitching tournament at the President’s camp, Ambassador Fletcher and Dr. Boone won the doubles, while the individual pitching honors went to Secretary Ritchie. The latter is credited with having pitched six ringers in one game of 21 points. The nickel-plated horse shoes presented to the President by The Evening Star were used during this contest. The President spent the greater part of yesterday seated in the cool shade of his camp site talking with his friends. He went for a short stroll in the morn ing and for a hike in the afternoon. Tlie President made no engagements for today, but has been busily occu pied in his office going through routine matters and disposing of an accumula tion of business. TODAY’S AMUSEMENTS.

AOIO - - OPENING ATTRACTIONS IN WASHINGTON THEATERS EARLE—Dolores Costello in “Madonna i of Avenue A.” In ‘‘Madonna of Avenue A," the fea ture picture at the Earle this week, Do lores Costello has a role that brings out the fulness of her dramatic ability. It Is a line picture, at times tense, then humorous, and at times sad, but Miss Costello responds excellently to all the I emotions. The beautiful Dolores, who has been acting since she was a child and who comes from a family <or actors of abil ity, has, ordinarily, a soft-spoken, well modulated voice. She can make it, how ever, a sobbing, broken voice or reach the demands of dramatic intensity with a realism that grips and thrills In her present picture. Its story has been published in advance and doubtless is familiar. Although not co-starred. Louise Dresser, in the part of Dolore’s mother, offers as fine a bit of acting as any in the cast. Equally well she portrays the part of the mother and of the hostess at a cheap night club. Near the end of the picture, after her daughter has denounced her, she is the perfect pic ture of a broken woman. Her art of makeup is wonderful, with dark rings under her eyes, many lines in her face and her general unkempt appearance, along with her facial expression of utter weariness. It leaves no one in doubt as to the end she will meet. In the not so weighty male lead is young Grant Withers, whose career has been neither so long nor so varied as those of the feminine players, but his performances in “Madonna of Avenue A” is an eminently successful one. He is good looking and has a fine singing voice, which Is heard in his excellent rendition of a fairly tuneful theme song. Others with talent in the picture are Douglas Gerrard, Otto Hoffman and Lee Moran. Sharing interest with the feature picture is the inaugural issue of The Evening Star Universal Newsreel, shelv ing interesting and unusual happen; sis all over the world, among them “shots” taken by a cameraman whirling to earth attached to a parachute. He secured some very weird photography. Other scenes include the great Wyoming rodeo, in which champion cowboys from all over the country participated: a river boat race between three old side-wheel ers, the record-breaking run of the Ger man liner Bremen and an amusing circus given by the children of Los Angeles. A Pathe talking comedy, “Go Easy Doctor”: a Fox newsreel and a selection by the Earle Orchestra com plete the program. PALACE—“The Single Standard.” A picture which on the whole re spects adult intelligence and which presents Greta Garbo less seductive but more fascinating, perhaps, than ever, “The Single Standard,” is this week's feature at the Palace. It has the added distinction of being a good “silent” j among a deluge of merely “so so” talk- 1 ies. It is a relief to return, occasionally,: to the movies in their original medium i and to realize how eloquent their silence ; can be in the hands of a really good star. Few actresses are capable of ex- i pressing the subtleties or grasplhg the finer expression of mcods as is Greta Garbo. Her fascination as a pan tomime artist is so great that one rather shrinks from its possibilities in shattering via the spoken word. Per haps Miss Garbo will be just as fasci nating as a “talkie” star, but even then a Swedish accent is a handicap, espec ially if the popular conception of Swedish accents holds good. In “The Single Standard” Greta casts aside the filmy draperies of her “siren ish” days and adopts the "smart” man ner of “A Woman of Affairs.” playing, however, with even more vivacity. The “Arden” of this picture is a more plausible if less dramatic person than the “Diana” (Iris) of the Arlen pic ture, and Garbo makes her a woman of disarming frankness, a life-loving creature who places a decided emphasis on her idea of “playing the game.” She fits into the new manner with ’ perfect ease, wears her sports clothes with dash, and handles her rather try ing emotional scenes admirably. Nils Asther plays “Packy Cannon.” artist, pugilist, sea rover and heart smasher, and handles the large order remarkably well. Asther still has his tendency to pose, but on the whole this is ; perhaps, his sincerest work so far. John Mack Brown is the “steadying” Influence who marries the girl and 1 affords contrast to the rather glamor ous Nils. Otherwise, his work has lit tle of distinction. The production Is handsomely mount ed and the interior sets are done in the ultra-modernistic manner, a little “arty” to be sure, but none the less striking. There are. however, one ojr f \ Mr. «Paint-Up” Says— Paint Your Roof Now! _ Even if the weather is warm now. don’t forget that Winter is coming! 'jMMI Paint costs less than leak-repairs!

The stage attraction, “The Garden of Love,” has several high lights, includ ing good dancing, some “different” comedy and some lavish sets, which, at that, are a matter of taste. Two news reels, an organlogue and the usual Palace frills contribute to a bill which needs only Greta Garbo In person to make It Incomparable. METROPOLITAN—CoIIeen Moore In “Smiling Irish Eyes.” “Smiling Irish Eyes,” a picturesque romance of old Ireland, is the feature at the Metropolitan this week. The story recalls the simple life of the rural folk, their quaint superstitions, their love of an argument Just for argu ment’s sake and their ever-ready wit and enjoyment of simple pleasures. Colleen Moore in this, her debut talk ing picture, has a chance to be her self, and proceeds throughout to charm her audiences with her Irish brogue, her vivacity and wit. James Hall, too, is so entranced by the pastoral setting that his lack of sophistication seems almost real. Most of the story takes place In the Killarney district of Ireland. It con cerns the lovf of a young Irish lassie for a lad, wdio had great talent In music, and hence had little desire to work on the land as the others did. One day on the hillside, the young lov ers composed a song, the lad the music on his violin and the lassie the words. Their inspirations were rudely inter rupted by the farm boss, who, determin ed to end such foolishness for all time, broke the violin to pieces. That night In the great castle the lord of the land was entertaining at dinner when Kathleen forced an entrance and told her tale of woe. Soon Rory is brought in and the two give the dinner guests a little im promptu entertainment of Irish songs. One of the American guests. Impressed by Rory’s ability, both as singer and violinist, suggests that he might make his fortune in America. From then on the lad thinks of little else* Both Kathleen and h* make a wish at the ancient wishing well, ac cording to custom, that the opportunity might come. Finally at the fair, Kath leen wins the greased pig race, quite by mistake, and receives enough money to pay Rory's passager to America. From then the scene is changed to New York, where Rory Is greeted with complete indifference, until he is finally persuad ed to sell the song "Smiling Irish Eyes” that he and Kathleen had composed on the hillside. Os course, it brings im mediate success. Meanwhile, Kathleen, wondering why she hasn’t heard from Rory, sails for America. Unknown she watches him from behind the scenes of ; the new Broadway success in which he |is playing the lead. She misinterprets j his acting and thinks that he has fallen ! in love with his leading lady, and so i returns to Ireland without seeing him ; and brokenhearted. However, when : Rory arrives on the next boat with a ! new Ford and a diamond ring, all is | forgiven. Both Collen Moore and James Hall sing several songs, especially the theme song. "Smiling Irish Eyes,” and both do creditable work. The dialogue is ! well done, but It is often hard to under stand because of the brogue. The scene at the Irish county fair is very enter taining. The added Vitaphone entertainment lis of equal merit. It consists of Harry ‘ Rosenthal and His Bath and Tennis Club Orchestra, who introduced several novelties, including an effective sil houette dance. Edison and Gregory, “Two College Nuts, show that music may be drawn out of an inner tube or even a rubber glove. The News reel completes the program. FOX—“Word* and Music.” The jealousies, rivalries, heroisms and sacrifices which (the movies would have ! us believe) make of university life a four-year whirl of character building along dubiously calm lines and are not li- -ited to the gridiron or the classroom or the boxing ring, but may be fought also over the piano keyboard or the fretted stem of a mandolin, according to "Words and Music,” this week’s fea ture at the Fox. The youth here who wins glory and the girl, according to tne established formula, does it not by making the de ciding touchdown or knocking out the bully, but by writing the best song skit in the annual frolic, which wins him a $1,500 cash prize and enables him to > continue at school. All the devices of I villainy and prank and retribution j which mark the casual college film are | displayed in “Words and Music,” but ! ' in an atmosphere of melody, song 'and j dancing. This Is, right enough, an other “girl and music’’ plot, but the lit tle chorines are sorority women lighting for the honor of dear old Gamma, and incidentally for dear old Darnell (a rather feeble combination of Dartmouth anl Cornell; why not Princevard or > Chicabilt?), and the chorus men and clashing librettists are occupants of the > Sigma house. It Is an amuplng transition > to see, Instead of sweating, tearing. ■ swearing guards and tackles and half -1 backs, smooth-haired song writers wor • rylng, hollow-eyed, over the piano. Taking the picture as it stands, and > taking it tolerantly, one finds “Words ; and Music” quite diverting. The music and dance background Is bright and < chipper and in "Too Wonderful for > Words” and “Steppin’ High, Steppin’ > Low,” there are two effective numbers. 1 Much of the musical comedy work Is > obviously hastily staged and (me won ders if the producers haven’t made it, according to the story, an amateur work to shield its imperfections. A great • deal of the recording is unsatisfactory, ■ raucous and brassy. Some oi the best features of the singing and dancing are only cloudily perceptible. Lois Moran in the role of the little i girl who suffered ignominy and hurt, ■ but achieved final triumph, is splendid, quite acceptable as a dancer (wasn’t she a ballet girl once upon a time?) and, as in most of her recent essays, a thoroughly dependable talkie actress. David Percy and Duke Morrison play the rivals for Miss Moran’s favors. Tom Patrlcola appears in a brief—too brief— scene. The shapely sorority girls, of fered variously in bathing suits and ' dancing “shorts” at rehearsals, are as alluring as any Broadway group. The gentlemen of the ensemble are clumsy and wooden, but who cares about them? The Pox stage show seemed unusually acceptable to Sunday afternoon's early audience. Mr. Fisher’s quips and non chalant foolishness apparently clicked well. The team of Gerald and Hoag, using the old super-animated horse stunt, put the nag through her paces amusingly. Prances Willis, acrobatic dancer, found favor, as did Two South ern Belles, harmony singers; Masters and Grace, eccentrics, and the Eight Jack Tars. The Poxettes and the Jazz manlans, under Mr. Korman’s baton, were, as always, excellent. Os the supplemental features, the Clark and McCullough short sketch. "Beneath the Law," proved hilarious; such rapscallion abandon deserves im mortality, along with men like Jimmy Durante and Harry Langdon in his best vaudeville days. COLUMBIA—“BuIIdog Drummond.” “Bulldog Drummond” continues his hunt for adventure, thrills and romance for a second week on the screen at Loews Columbia Theater, with Ronald Colman adequately filling in the title role. The play reveals a previously hidden talent of the dashing screen lover, the perfect manipulation of a well-pitched voice, which, in its first exploitation before the microphone, proves unsuspected versatility as a sound dramatist. Colman’s keen sense of humor is em ployed to good advantage in this comedy-drama which calls for swift changes from the Intense to the absurd and all handled exceptionally well by i the star and by his supporting cast. Joan Bennett carries the leading feminine role with charm and sincerity. A slim young gentleman with a monocle whose name escaped the reviewer plays Algy. Bulldog’s faithful friend, with a delicious appreciation of the subtleties of his part. Algy is just what "Algy” should be. having a name like that. Lilyan Tashman is well adapted to the role of the crystal-hard blond beauty with little conscience and less scruples, while Lawrence Grant might have step ped out of Poe's weirdest novel, so con vincing is his portrayal of the torture doctor hired by the owner of a “sani tarium” for nervous patients. Montague Love is the other heavy villain of the piece. If Bulldog Drummond were looking for gooseflesh and thrills, he might have easily found them when he confronted this duo of criminals and their cruelly fair accomplice. As for romance—one glance at Phyllis beneath her heavy silk ■ veil is enough to convince one that the young adventurer is not to be disap pointed on that score! Subsidiary attractions include an ex quisite technicolor gem, "A Sohg of Spain,” in which artistic costumes vie with vocal talent for honors. In addi tion there is a short Vitaphone subject j ! introducing Van and Schenck, charac- , ter songsters: the M.-G.-M. and Fox newsreels, and an orchestral interlude.
