WHAT IS HAPPENING THIS WEEK HERE RIVERSIDE PARK prows more po pular as the duyii and nights become more heated and the various amuse ments and concessions are very po tent drawing cards. The dancing pa vilion, especially, is the most sought out place in the evening. The av erage nightly attendance of X m ers hi.- been more than double that of last summer and instead of proving the exception, the new dances are all the rule. One of the moist popular just now, among the dancers and spectators is the I.ulu Fado. This more on the style of the old fashioned square dances than any of. the newer types and the on-lookers seem to en poy it as much as the dancers them selves There i darn ing every night except Sunday. In the movie theatre the pictures ;;re, shown every night in the week. nn tompiete ciianges of program on Sunday. Monday. Wednesday, Thiiisday and Saturday nights. Wed nesday night brings "Runaway June" the feature Mutual picture which has created so much favorable comment. No admission is charged to the movie theatre. Swimming grow? more and more popular and the pool is open from nine in the morning until eleven o'clock at night. The water flows through the pool at a rate that changes it completely three times e ry two (lavs and in addition to this, the pool is emptied, scrubbed and cleaned twice every week. There is not an artificial fresh water irioi in tin- country that is in any way superior to Riverside and few that can final it. Ft is the biggest boon that "vet came to Phoenix for the summer season. The zoo and other amusements are all sovrces of inier.nt and help to make Riverside a park very much out of the ordinary. 4 THE ARIZONA today brines back the great nine reel picture of Rex P.. ai h's "The Spoilers." It will be n nicmbercd that this picture was shown .it the Arizona only a short time ago and played to phenomin.il business. So many requests were mailt for its repetition that Harry Nace finally made arrangements for its return to hi; house for today, tomorrovv and Tuesday. Since it was sh-vn her the picture has been shown in m.'-nv cities throughout the state. In Pisbee it drew such tre mendous crowds that the streets were blinked and the police had to be called out to regulate traffic. It is a wonderfully strong picture, splendidly handled and telling a red blooded story in an intensely inter-e.-tirg manner. Hundreds of people were prevented from seeing it when it was brought here before, and count less numbers of those who did see it will want to see it again, so its second .ppVarunce at the Arizona should be almost as prosperous asits first. For Wednesday and Thursday an other feature that should prove of gre.it interest is the appearance of William H. Crane in "David Harura" this is Mr. Crane's first appearance A".iVH-.-''i,; . . :f ,tv or v .. , w' f t j. - t n t' i j "St .is 'J - 1 ; 1 l' ' '1f 1 HO '-Z it .4 1 r . j ' .

Theda Ba.rl in that picture is fresh in the memor ies of the patrons of the Lamara and the announcement that she will be seen today in the picture version of the famous '"Kreutzer Sonata" of Tolstoy is good news. Not only will Mile Kara he seen in this picture but so will William Shay and Nance O'Neill. Those three names alone would make a picture notable; but they are supported by an exceptional- t ly strong cast. The "Kreutzer Sona j ta" i.s the eternal triangle again, de l pictr-d as only Tolstoy can depict such things and in the hands of such ar tists as these three leading charac ters it rhould prove a truly wonder ful picture. tin Tuesday and Wednesday Car lyle Plackvvell anil the Favorite Play ers Co. will he seen in another pic ture. This time it is "A High Hand." William Hrunton who plays in this picture was a member of the World's Fair Stock company at the Kmpresri here in Phoenix with Cleo Madison. Alex Dietrich, Ted :acCleafl and Robin Adair. Thursday and Friday bring another of the '.'Who Pays?" series with Ruth Roland and Henry King in the lead ing roles. This installment is called "When Justice Sleeps." It is the story of a man who soils hi honor for the woman he loves and she does not care. There is also another Kx ploit of Maine on this program and in it Wu Fang succeeds in kidnapping Klaine For the past two weeks the pro grams at the Lamara have been an unbroken string of exceptionally good pictures and there is every indication that thiei record will continue for ST-me time to come. THE COLISEUM continues to draw large houses to the tabloid comedies that are presented there. All the principals in the company have be come popular favorites and every change of bill is looked forward to bv a fast growing clientele. To night will be the last time of "Other People"?
