the news of the day served up in
dramatic form, without delay. A play
based on the case of Leo M. Frank,
convicted in Atlanta of the murder
of a young girl, is playing to capacity,
in the Yiddish language, at the Gfand
Music Hall. Thejnece concludes with
the vindication of "Frank, who is por
trayed by Wm. Siegel, author of the
play. There are loud cheers for the
hero and hisses for his enemies.
Hammerstein's, home of the talk
ing dog and the wrestling cheese,
makes an unusual departure in the
presentation of a "domestic problem
play," by Rev. A. J. Waldron, an En
glish vicar, entitled "Should a Wo
man Tell?"
The problem presented is whether
a woman need confess her past, if she
has one, to her fiance. Russ Whytal
heads the cast as a clergyman who
advises a girl not to confess and bit
terly assails the man who asks it of
her.

FOOTWORK AS BOXER CONVINCED HIM
COULD DANCE NOW HE'S CHAMPION
San Francisco, Cal. From a $10
preliminary boxer to one of the high
est salaried dancers in the world is
quite a transition, but that is what
has befallen Dick Wheeler, former
rubber for Battling Nelson, Freddie
Welsh and other prominent boxers,
within the short space of nine
months.
Convinced that as a boxer he was
a very good dancer, Wheeler fore
swore the gloves for the pumps when
the dancing craze hit the country.
He secured an engagement as a Tex
as Tommy dancer that took him to
New York, where in a tournament
held in the Winter Garden, he won
the world's championship as a tango
dancer. Going abroad with Gertrude
Dolan as his dancing partner, he was
given a booking mat will take him
around the world, consuming two
years' time. He has toured South
Africa, England, Ireland, France and
Germany and now is in Russia. Nor
way, Sweden, Finland, Turkey, India,
Australia, China, Japan, the Philip
pines and Honolulu are in the itiner
ary and the trip will end here.
