DUNCAN DANCERS FIND NEW DATES NECESSARY Change in Entertainment Program Required, Due to Conflict With German Opera Schedule. Due to confusion of stage conditions, owing to the presence of the German Grand Opera Co. here this week, the programs of the Duncan Dancers from Moscow, originally scheduled for tomor row afternoon and evening, have had to be postponed, according to announce ment made today by T. Arthur Smith, I local manager for this attraction, j "We originally had three programs listed, including one for Thursday * niaht." said Mr. Smith. “The Thursday pregram had to be cut out because of j j Hie touting of scenery from the ‘Tris -1 tan und Isolde’ performance of Wed nesday night and the putting up of the settings for Mozart’s ‘Don Juan,’ which is to be given tonight. We found this morning that it would be impracticable to get the Mozart opera settings away before so late tomorrow that the dancers'sets could not be put up in time for a matinee as scheduled. Rather ■ than cut the performances to only one | evening event—as there are two distinct; programs offered by these dancers, j which have won much approval in New York, where they were first offered— j we have postponed both Saturday per | formances. A new date will be an- ; r.ounced later, when we have the the ater situation settled. Tickets will be good at the later date.” WOMAN ATHLETIC STAR WINS DIVORCE DECREE Helen Filkey Declares Husband ; Che Eloped With Kicked Her Skins Over Bridge Playing. By the Associated Press.
