He will christen the new stage at tb Strand and will it said, bring to the local theater one of the best enter tainments that it has. been the good fortune of the Rickards and Xace combination to secure in several years. McAlbert does one of the mystic stunts wherein he reads from the au dience questions, answers queries of all kinds and gives one of the most mystifying of performances if the review of the Washington newspaper of which there is printed on excerpt below. McAlbert is accompanied by a singer and dancer. Miss Dorothy Van, of whom it is said she is an ex ceptionally clever girl. She is the smallest prima donna in the world. Weighing but 90 pounds ehe has a voice as big as any woman on the operatic stage in this country. The McAlbert show will be served by the management of the Strand at the regular house prices. It HAWAIIAN ACT FEATURE AT RIALTO It is perhaps safe to say that no vaudeville act to visit Phoenix in the past five, years has caused as much favorable talk as that of Diamond's Hawaiians, who have been featured with the picture program at the Hialto for the past several days. Charles Diamond the leader and owner of the act, is one of the best musical artists to play this country in years. His work on the guitar, the saxophone, his marvelous tech nique on the steel stringed guitar and the banjo, stamps him as one of the really great artists in vaude ville. His rendition of classic as well as popular numbers shows his ver satility and his associates are splen didly in tune with his master per formance. By request of hundreds who could not a l end the several days that he has bjen on at the Rialto he has been engaged to remain over for today and Sunday as well appearing at both the afternoon shows and twice each nigh. If you have not seen this act you will be so thoroughly sur prised that you will wonder how this kind of a company missed the big city time and then you will be pleased to know that the Diamond TRAND ' troupe has played all of the Orpheum and other circuits of the country sev eral times and is Just now making an independent tour of the southwest, returning to the coast shortly after a visit to El Paso to be featured again with the Pantages acts over that circuit. V -J A J- CHILDREN'S MATINEE AT" . COLUMBIA''' TODAY Following its annual custom of giv ing a special mothers' and children's matinee during the holiday season, Mauk's Columbia theater will present at i:30 this afternoon a large five part program. The pupils in dancing of Tua Son stegard King will interpret by dance and pantomine a scene from Maeter linck's famous story "The Bluebird." This feature Is very well arranged, and the tiny tots who portray it all seem to be born actresses. In addition to this number the management of the Columbia has added to the regular program an ex tra feature comedy, Larry Semon in "The Star Boarder." Larry as the star boarder of a penitentiary is a scream, and the funny situations that develpp are real laugh producers. This picture is presented as an extra attraction for the special matinee only, and is in addition to Harold Lloyd's newest comedy of his new series: "Now or Never." The scenes of "Now or Never" are laid in a Pullman car, with Lloyd taking care of a cunning little girl who has been left with him. The laughs follow closely upon each other, and Lloyd has a few surprises in store, as usual. . ''Mr. Wu," the Chinese picture that is different, is a real surprise. The story is told In an entirely different fashion, the plot unfolding in China. The son of an English merchant falls In love with the danughter of a man darin and a love union results. When the father finds this out he is fu rious and after consulting fiis gods decides that his daughter must pay i for her sin with her life. He also , takes the girl's lover prisoner, and , entices the hero's mother to his house with the idea of killing her. The . way in which te picture is worked out from this point to a startling ending is clever indeed. This program is offered at regular house prices.

TRIUMPH OF WOMAN SHOWN AT RIALTO : The Rialto announces the opening today of the engagementof the tre mendous dramatic triumph: "Man, Woman, Marriage," written, directed and produced by Allen Holubar, starring Dorothy Phillips. Holubar worked over eight months on the production, handling every A M AMERICAN SPECIALS TONIGHT WHEN BUDDHA SMILES Chinese Lullaby FROM - "EAST IS WEST" a o z e5 o s Q detail himself. It is his first inde pendent production for First Na tional and unhampered, unhindered by any restraint whatever, he has succeeded in building a production that will live as long, as the screen endures. His theme Is that of womanhood the birth and growth of woman's faith through all the ages, and he covers the theme in livid strokes of realism depicting hrr rise from time immemorial. He starts at the cave man era when woman cowed in the darkness of the cave to which she had been brought. Then the miracle of moth erhood and the .awakening of the realization of her power. The period of the Roman era with the daring, mad abandon of the rul ers. The Amaionion period is another spectacular sequence in the filmed story. In this action hun dreds of people take parts, hundreds of horses and animals of all sorts and descriptions. Great battle scenes, with woman wighting a man's fight, with man as her foe. And through it all Holubar has kept the modern side of his theme well into the lime light the present day action being among tne most brilliant of the en tire feature. What it lacks f the thrilling action of the Amazonian period what it abandons of the plea sure-mad revelry of the Romans. It amply makes up for in the wonder, splendor and brilliance of the Bet tings, gowns appointments and ef fects of the ultra modern side of present day life. The Rialto will screen the feature without advance In prices and is urging attendance during the mati nee screenings. The engagement is limited to but three days, and the interest manifested on all sides in the production augers for record break ing attendance during the evening showings. The added attractions will Include the news and the Tooneclile comedy Florence Midgley, soprano, opens today singing Cadman s "At Dawn ing" and "Mighty Like a Rose." The atmospheric prologue preceeds each show.
