RIVERSIDE PARK prows more po

last summer and instead of proving
the exception, the new dances are all

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

this, the pool is emptied, scrubbed and
cleaned twice every week. There is
not an artificial fresh water irioi

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.
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"

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

things and in the hands of such ar

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
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"? Money." a musical comedy
which has proved very entertainign.
It is chock full of good musical num
bers and dancing with a wealth of
comedy of the type that has proven
particularly agreeable to Coliseum au
diences. Tomorrow night House and Alard
will present "The Fountain of Youth"
