-: ; 7 - Local Amusement Germ Isolated in Vaudeville and Pictures THE WASHINGTON TBIESr SUNDAY; JULY 25, 1915. National Capital Theater goers Left to Variety and Photoplay For Entertainment. IN PLAYHOUSES THIS WEEK For the first time in years the people of Washington find them selves for a brief seircon without leeitimate drama. So lo c a period has passed since vacation time was ! observed by all the theaters that tho situation this week is unusual. Compensation for the lack of reg ular drama is found in the continu ance of the vaudeville seaBon at Keith's far beyond its usual limita tions and even beyond its usual success. The bill this week, headed by Homer Mason and company, is another of the kind that has been made noteworthy since the midsum mer programs were inaugurated a month ago. laura Hope Crews, who has gain ed so much notice on the stage dur ing the past two or three seasons, makes her first appearance as or photoplayer at the Columbia in "Tho Fighting Hope," and in the other picture and vaudeville houses the bills promised are said to be es pecially calculated to drive thermo metric reckonings from the mind.

It Is the only bus! that the theater bo decorated In I'nlon and Confederate flags, and that, as It faced east and west, the manager put the ushers on the north side of the house In blue uniforms, and tho ushcis on the south side In gray.

H The niunatieinent of Crandall's Theater announces an espcc'ally attractive pro grcm of photoplays for the current week starting tomorrow with Ina Claire, In her Initial photodramatlc effort, Will iam C. DcMille's "The Wild Goose Chase." The big feature of the week comes on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, when W.lliam Fox presents Betty Nansen, supported by Stuart Holmes, Jean Southern and an all star cafal in an orig.nal screen drama especially written for Miss Nansen by Rex Ingram, "Should A Mother Tell?" The btory itself Is one of exceptional power and presents a problem that calls for dramatic action of great Inten sity. Miss Nansen Is said to have many opportunities to display her emotional pow i rs. Tho attract'on Friday and Saturday will be Blanche Sweet in the detective drama. "The Clue," by Margaret Turn bull. Miss Sweet plays the role of a wealthy American girl whoso lover be lieves himself guilty of murder. Music will feature all performances. A plan has been prepared to extend the board walk at Colonial Beach nbout a mile by adding a half mile to each end of the present structure. Sites for amusement enterprises are said to be at a premium along tho Colonial Beach boardwalk and the space along the addition will be filled with devices to amuse the visitor. Tho steamer St. Johns which Is car rying large crowds of visitors to tho beach is now making dally trips ex cept Monday, leaving Saturdays at 2:30 p. m. nnd other days at 9 a. m.

But that was where the trouble came. As soon as he got tho young men Into their uniforms and they had seen the play, they com menced to fight. They fought so much that he was compelled to discharge tho lot of them and Install girls. And that brought him to his problem. Next week, he states In his letter, he Is to produce "Hypocrites!" But Mann declines to make any more sugges tions! He Just blushes! ! ness In the world that breeds t'lls sort lowed Instructions about tho uniforming or a spirit. Dibagree as we migni wun the producers and the managers in the results they sometimes obtain tluough the methods they follow, there can be nothing but honest and sincere admira tion for their courage and their spirit of stlck-to-ltlveness. This Is the time of the year when tho managers and producers are tho most cheerful, thc best satisfied with them selves and their prospects. Kor weeks past neatly typewritten announcements, printed prospectuses, photographs and personal letters have been Mowing from the theatrical headquarters in New York, each pitched In the same key "Next season Is to be the greatest ever. Next season will witness the produc tion of thc most wonderful plays wun the most talented ot stars. Next season Is to be the most prosperous In the his tory of the stage. It cannot help being! It is written that It shall be! !" In the light of this promise and this hope, the public can certainly partake, a bit of the managers' cheerfulness. ' H can do no less than keep the thought of the rosy outlook before It, Tho man agers may be right. And It certainly costs nothing to hope they aic. ao here's hoping! GARDEN.

Today the usual attractions for Sun day picnickers to Marshall Hall may bo enjoyed by young and old. As the season advances thc attractions of this shady retreat, rich In Its historic asso ciations as home of former Chief Jus tice John Marshall, appeal to more and more pleasure-seekers. At Marshall Hall are bowling and skoe ball alleys, shooting galleries, dlp-the-dlp, merry-go-rounds, etc. For thc kiddles, a large, modern play ground has been provided. Concerts by Schroeder's band dally. The trip to Marshall Hall Is made on the steamer I'har'es Macalcster. which leaves the Seventh street wharf every day at lu a. m., 3:3ti and 6'30 p. m. On week days stops arc mado at Mt. Vernon, affording an opportunity to visit the magnificent colonial estate of Washing ton, as well as his tomb. thc exclusive society circle of the of Magellan. Snow Stops Newman. B. M. Newman, the travel lecturer, has been held In Santiago, Chile, be cause of snow blockades on the trans Andlean railroad, and he has notified friends In this country that it will prob ably be necessary for him to make his way to Argentina by way of the Straits Washington, apparently, has every reason to believe that the theatrical fates will bo kind to It during tho com ing year. Every class of amusement seems to be fairly well provided for. There are almost enough first class at tractions that successful! weathered last season's storms, but that have never been seen here, to provide attrac tions for at least a part or the season. The Poll Players will return In tour weeks to open a theater that will be more completely changed and renovated than It has Been since it was nrst trans formed from a weather beaten grand opera house to a vaudeville theater. Tho Improvements that are to be made go all over the house and provide com forts and conveniences for the patron and for the employe alike. Manager Cone promises that the house will have the best stock company It has ever housed. In light of tho high qual ity of tho company that Is now closing a successful engagement, tho hope is expressed that Mr, Cone's now roster will contain as many of the names that now adorn It as it is posslblo for him to attach to It. There have heen Bomu very remarkable productions In the Poll hqusc during the past three years. And It has presented a number of very capable people. It Is the opinion of many of Its patrons mat the present company Is tho best that has been Been there and they wish, therefore, to have the same company enjov the new con veniences nnd to have the opportunity to pla,- under the pleasanter surrouna Ings tho renovation and Improvements will provide. Washington Is assured a popular priced theater for next season In the an nouncement made today by the Casino management to the effect that Stair & Haviln have secured control of that house. Tho atractlons that are to be presented will be well mounted and well presented. They will Include Pro ductions of Cohan and Harris, William A. Brady, thc Shuberts, tho Selwyns, and other well-known purveyors of amusement who produce popular priced attractions as well bs the $2 variety. The facility that has been attained by Stair & Haviln. who control a large number of theaters In various sections of tho country, In presenting such at tractions have given them a command ing position in the theatrical world and have enabled them to present at the low scalo of prices in vogue in nil their houses, attractions that frequently are seen In thp S2 theaters elsewhere. The Casino Is ndmlrably adapted to the uses to which It will be put. It Is to be entirely remodeled, and It Is un derstood that Its seating capacity will be sllghtlv Increased. Improvements wlll be made In the stage appllcanccs, and in the arrangements for the comfort nnd convenience of the patrons. Situated near a busy shopping district, the ven ture should prove highly successful.
