Bare Legg Kick Hamlet Ghost Out New York ."Drama League Now, Begins Fight Against Mid ' night Cabarets. ' NEWfOHK. Sept 35. New Yorkara were confronted today wth the proo lem of choosing their theatrical paths." The pno' le'J by Hamlet, and strewn with fine phrases, lofty thought and ouch:' tho other, led by Polonlus and studded .with laughter, frivolity, tawd rlness, an4 interspersed with baro lgs. The ultimatum was delivered by Mrs. August polmont. Mrs. William' K. Vanderbllt, and scores of other so cially prominent members of yie drama league. Large advertisements were carried In the papers, appealing to Now Yorkers to come to the aid of art, and forsake the tea dansants, mlS.n'ffht cabarets arid Ice palaces. The action was tho direct result of turning the New Century Theater, built at a cost of millions for tho promulgation of grand opera nl drama, Into a whlto light retreat. For weeks the new theater has been un dergoing changes calculated to make othor high Bpced palaceB look pale. It Is to offset this Influence on the theater-going public tjiat the drama league has started what It promises the finish ,of the qabaret. .

Recognizing the demand for ft ear of the' twin-body type for all-year-round uo, Chalmers Motor Company has Just nnnounced a new model for fall delivery to bo known as the Pal anquin. Tho Palanquin Is the name given to an entirely now type of body which converts a touring car into a full-fledged limousine In the space of a fow minutes. The Chalmers Com pany Is the first to glvo this body a distinctive title. Long before the days of Pullman cars and luxurious limousines, the last word in royal equipage was the Palanquin, a box-Uke, curtained con veyance for one person and moved from place to place on the shoulders of four men. Because only crowned heads or very wealthy personages could afford palanquins, the word has always been synonymous with luxury In tho minds of the public The idea of luxury as related to palahQUin la in no way .misplaced in Its application to tho newest Chal mers model. The Chalmers Palan quin is practically theftrst solution of tho problem of converting a stand ard touring car Into a closed oar without sacrificing beauty to utility. By designing the new Palanquin and standard Chalmers SIx-tO seven-passenger touring oar bodies together Chftlrners engineers have eliminated the mukeahlft appearance of the av erage convertible body. Ah a result the body lines aro as harmonious in thp closed car as when the machine Is tired In ita ordinary touring form. ' Appeals to Women In vle.w of the vast increase Jn tho number f women who drive their own ears, the Chalmers Palanquin will perhaps make its strongest ap peal Jo the feminine portion of tho family. An ever Increasing number of women derive real pleasure from driving their own motor cars, but In punt years they were compsrled to abandon the wheel at the first ap pearance of cold weather. With the the new Chalmers Palanquin, the wo nian driver is assured all the comforts or the most luxurious limousine without the heavv body and unwleldly steering of the average heavy rjosed car. Motor ics everywhere have set their stamp of approval on tho owner-driver type of car. and manufacturers aro turning their attention to this style In an ef fort to mcot demand, V The new Chalmers Palanquin can be quickly placed In position on the Chalmers Slx-tO seven-passenger tour ing car In any garage. Particular em phasis hns been given to the fact that the closed body, once In position has neither cracks nor openings for rain, sleet, and snow to creep In. When hot in uso. the closed body can be Placed In ono corner of the garage to uwalt another winter season. Has Limouaine Equipment. In equipment, tho Palanquin com pares favorably with the highest priced limousine. The wide windows arc of heavv Plate glass curtained with substantial silk. Four of the windows ran be readily raised or low Ted. The Interior Is arranged to give seven adult pasengcrs plenty of room even when heavy wraps or coats are worn or carried. The doors are unusually wide and swing out of the way, permitting easy entrance and exit without soiling tho apparel. Both front seats arc Inalosed, assuring comfort for the driver, and electric lights operated by push buttons. Illumi nate the Interior. Tho new car has met with enthusiastic reception, and many' orders have al ready been received for early fall de livery. Carlisle War Veteran Dies CARLISLE, Pa.. Sept. 25.
