"A NICE PLACE FOR CACTUS ROOF GARDEN 8 P. M. OPPOSITE ELKS THEATER BLDG. Formerly Arcadia Hall AMERICAN DANCE PALACE IT'S TH t: DANCING INSTRUCTIONS DOINGS OF THE DUFFS HELLO THERE,, TOM! furnishes a new Idea In screen stories. Those who have read W. B. Maxwell's novel of the same name will instantly realize in the announcement of the picturized version an entertainment fraught with not only the greatest possibilities in the matter of drama tic excellence, but in daring, in bold ness and startling discussion. And such is the portraiture that Lionel Barrymore contributes to tho cinema in the role of the principal character In this stirring narrative. And in every scene is he ably assisted by the wonderful supporting fast which First National has furnished Ijim. Mae McAvoy, Roris Rankin and H. Cooper Cliffe each have wonderful roles which they register in wonder ful style. The story of the drama Is one of a William Dale, a man of uncontroll able passion and a terrible temper. He has made his way in the world solely through a dominating spirit, but when he allows his anger to get the better of him on a government position, it is then that he meets the crisis. But for his wife he would have been ruined financially. The sacrifice she made, one which the husband when he learned it was not willing to forgive, but on the contrary he sought the man and put him to death. Always there stood between the man and his wife the charge of infidelity. Cruel as it was, he was uncompromising. But he still failed to see the faults in himself, and when in later years there comes into his life a beautiful young girl, he realizes that in this girl he faced the same charge, he was unable to forgive in his wife. The age-old battle in man's heart, fealty to one woman, or the unleashing of the primitive love in stincts one man to one woman,' or the resignation to unrestrained pas sion. The man is torn between- the forces of life, he seeks the answer, sends the girl away to work out the problem alone, and in this phase of the story Lionel Barrymore brings to the role without question the finest exhibition of emotional registration in his entre career ether on the stage or screen. Tomorrow starts the engagement of "Don't Tell Everything," the Para mount special attraction starring Wallace Keid, Gloria Swanson anu Elliott Dexter. "Tho SDeed Girl" at Columbia Coming direct from a three week run at the Kinema in Los Angeles, Rebe Daniels' latest picture, "The Speed Girl." showing today and to morrow at Mauk's Columbia theater, is one of tho peppiest, jazziest com edies that Bebe has made.

It's the one topic of conversation among patrons of the Frolic. It is scheduled for Mon day night and is bound to prove one of most highly amusing, as well as one of most unusually novel affairs yet staged by this club, the recog nized leaders of dance innovations. The doughnut dance is something that is going to afford no nd of fun for the contestants as well as a rousing round of laughter and fun for the onlookers. The idea of the doughnut dance is a modernization of the old tournament days when knights of old met at the tilt for su premacy in catching the small rings suspended from frames on points of spears while riding at breakneck speed asU'ida spirited chargers. In the version which will be presented at Frolic next Monday night dough nuts will take the place of the little rings and dancing will take place of the chargers of the knights: the ring ing of the doughnuts, that's the fun, and that's what will determine the winners. Prices will be offered the contestan'.s. special music will be played by Carrol Reed's symphony In jazz; it is going to be a regular eve ning, one that no dancer in the city can offord to miss. There will be no advance iff cither the admission charge nor the charge for dancing during the doughnut Jance next Mon day evening. Nor will there be any charge for reservations.
