TEARS ÄND LAUGHS IN "3 WISE FOOLS" Sincere Humor and Genuine Emotion Wins Audience in Play at Grand. "Three Wise Fools" appeared at the Grand theater Thursday night. îf a review in cold blood were possible—pos sible, .say, following a long hunger for something of art—it would read much like the press notices which have come with Broadway's O. K., only much more convincing. But a "review" of such a delightful piece of work is not for n I busv typewriter and a four-inch space, j The audience's verdict was laughter from 1 the first, and unabashed tears here and i there. The appeal of the play is such i thet folks stopped to congratulate each ! other in the lobby, after the last cur tain, und to \Tondor how soon nucb another might be hoped for. A contrast between the idealism of youth and the worldly wisdonf of matur ity is "Three Wise Fools." The play i is packed with such sincere, diverting \ humor and such genuine emotion, with I so profound a knowledge of human psych I ology, that the fool is not revealed until i one discovers him in oneself. One rather regrets the intrusion of such tangible ■ arrd stage -known Quantities as secret service men and escaped convicts upon j the beauty and serenity of this psyeho i analytical escapade. Was there no esthetic way around it? However, with actors like Claude. GU I' lingwater, and the others, a playwright who knew his grammar might take many ! more liberties than Austin Strong's de vices have taken in this play. Reference to the "cast" seems too impersonal, but j it is verv nearly unavoidable. Helen Menken and Donald Foster were as true to their parts as their love-making seem ed true to resurgent youth. Nor is it fair to leave out Harry Davenport and Howard Gould. A play to be smiled over weeks. And it runs again tonight. Cubs Grab Maisel From Portland Ciub Chicago, Dec. 9.—George Maisel of the !

Since the episode of the iron bunk rod he has not once raised his big hand to cuff another prisoner, nor has he failed to hump his back over any job offered by the jailors The Brothers Bailey, both little more than boys, are credited by the prisoners with having subdued Scott. They were committed a short time ago, several months after Sam had imposed his rule upon the cells, and they made no formid able showing against the bully until they learned that a rod could be loosened from one of the bunks. One of them rocked Sam back onto his heels with a rght swing while the other stood ready with the rod, and then they came after Sam with an ambulance. At the hos pital seven stitches were taken to close the wound. Scott is neatly six and one-half feet tall, big of frame and powerfully built. He has been a troublesome prisoner since he was arrested last June for the robbery of the Arvon hotel. The jailors once learned of his plans to escape by killing one of them and again they found a wooden revolver in his bunk. The toy weapon was an exact duplicate of the real ti.ing, was b'acked with a lead pencil and if presented in the dark could easily have been mistaken for a real gun. Scott was a partner of William Brandon, the outlaw who escaped from the jail last July by jumping through a window in Sheriff J. P. Burns' private office. A tomato contains 94.3 per cent wâter.
