There might possibly bo room for bouI cleansing tear or two of sheer happiness at the sweetness of "pojlyanna," but as far as "The Only Girl" and "The Beauty Shop" are concerned,1 even sadly sweet tears arc out of the question.

Catherine Chlsholm dishing, the dram atist, has written popular comedUs tor May Irwin, Henrietta Crosman, and BUlie Burke; alio also wrote "Kitty, MacKay. ' in bringing "Pollyanna" ivlthln stage limitations she has been credited with pieservlng the humanity and joyous optimism of Eleunor 11. Porter's enormously popular stories, "Pollyanna," tho Glad Book, and "Pol lyanna Grown Up." "Pollyanna" hu.i proved a keen delight to theatergoers and comes hern with the original cast ot distinguished plny ers Including Patricia Colltngo, ns tho Glad Girl; Eftle Shannon and Herbert Kelcey as Aunt Polly and Dr. Chilton; Arthur Forrest, at. the hermit Pendle ton; JcsHie Buulcy, as the amlablo Nancy; Maude Granger.

Thero Is no moro lovable and fascinat ing figure In modern drama than tho joyous girl vho comes into a crabbed community to sweeten everybody by playing tho glad game, nnd whose ca reer In the comedy extends from the checked-glrigham period to radiant maidenhood of BWcct seventeen In chlf fqn.
