Dear Friend Claude: Well, .here I am In Washington, and the first thing I did what do you think was to drop in and see this here now Jack Edwards, who you said was manager of the Sbubert Garrlck Theater, you know. Well, Claude, you sure told me right, be cause when I told him you told me to tell him I was your friend he did what you told me he would do, and reached down In his safe and got out something they voted against at the Capitol some time ago and him and me had some. Well, Claude, then we stept out of his office and I thought the house was dark, because there wasn't no matinee this afternoon when I saw him. But what do you think Claude there on the stage was six of the classiest chickens you ever saw and a fellow. So I ast Jack, or maybe Td ought to call him Mister Edwards, what they was doing there, and he says OH, that's going to be our chorus next week. Seem, Claude, like they was rehearsing to play the chorus parts in a show called "The Only Girl," that the Garrick Theater stock company Is going to pull off next week, so I sat down and watched them awhile. There was one, the second from the right, Claude, that was all there. You know me, Claude, But they was all pippins, so I ast Mis ter Edwards who are they? He said. OH, they are all Washington girls. Gee, Claude, I never knew Washing ton was so classy before. But this follow what's up there. Mister Ed wards says his name is Walter Mor rison, was driving them girls hard. He was making them sing and dance their parts. And listen. Claude, they had on tight skirts like, and when they tried to take some of them steps they didn't have room, so this "Mor rison fellow told them not mind him and pull up their skirts a little so they could get the steps easier. And Claude, they did. Well Claude, you know I was sup posed to leave Washington on my route tomorrow, but I ain't going1 to now. " I'm going to stay over here and see this show, because, believe me, Claude, that's some chorus. Anyway, Claude, you know me. As ever, ABE. The pageant at the Sylvan Theater that was to have been given- last evening by the Ordnance Department of the War Department, has been post poned until next Wednesday evening. August 6. This pageant, that will typify what America has to give in abundance to supply the immediate needs of the nations Qf the world, Is under the direction of Bessie McClel lan, of the War Department, who is giving It through the co-operation' 6t the War Camp Community Service. A chorus of five hundred voices is being planned for. to be led by HolIIs Edison Davenny, director of commu nity music, for the District of Colum bia, under the W. C. C. S. The picture of the pageant will show the nations emerging out of the clouds of war, that aro hovering about but that finally are dispelled, the climax of the pictured story com ing with a flood of sunlight on the scene, a shower of gold, and -finally the appearance of "Prosperity" to light the world to better things. MEET MR. BARRIE CRAKDALIS theater "MARGUERITE CLARK. At Crandall's Theater today the principal phqtonlaj ffQrIng,wll bc "Girls,"' the film version "ofthe famous comedy of the same name by Clyde Fitch, with Marguerite Clark in the role of the organizer of the lady f bachelors' club.

On Wednesday, Thurs day and Friday. William Desmond will hold the screen as star of another Western romance. "A Sagebrush Ham let." In which are revealed studies of pristine beauty seldom attempted even upon the screen. For Saturday, Crandall's announces "The Other Man's Wife," starring Stuart Holmes. The requirements of photoplay pro-J Germany, where are located educa- uunai institutions or considerable standing among the climbers after the higher forms of rugby, pugilism, dueling, and other arts. So, equipped with everything an ac tor needs, Mr. Barrio went upon the stage. At one time he played opposite Grace George In "Half an Hour" for longer than that. Previously he had cavorted, we are led to believe, grace fully In comic opera, where presum ably he also sang, unless his function was merely to lend dignity to a spear; However, the salient fact is that he eventuated into the forms Of histrionic art that are encompass ed most easily In long strips of gela tine and there carved his name at the top of the list of popular screen lead ing men. And Nigel Barrie is, withal, a regu lar man. His Dresenf rnio ir. "ti,. Better Wife," one of the Jjest he. has. bad, by the way, -signalizes his re turn 10 me screen after active mili tary service. As proof that the por tion of his education received at Heid elberg didn't take, It may be remark ed that Barrie's military service took the form of belligerent aviation on the French front as a member of Eng land's Royal Flyintr Corns. n-hcrin he is reputed to have strafed the Hun wholeheartedly and with talent duction are such that leading men in silent drama come and go with even greater disinclination to stay put than in the, so to speak, good old days when matinee idols were the style on the articulate stage. There have been a million more or less, handsome young fellows wKo have risen to the heights before the cam era, only to fade away into obscur ity. Of the leading men who have re mained such long enough to be defi nitely identified in the public mind may be mentioned Thomas Holding, Irving Cummlngs, Harrison Ford, and Thomas Meighan. Those who have graduated recently are Tom Moore, Eugene O'Brien, and Elliott Dexter. But now domes Nigel -Barrie, whose clothes fit and whose manner Is that of what Dr. Morse terms an "ele-. gant gentleman." t Mr. Barrie whose likeness is nojsr aiding In augmenting the stellar OlA tinction of the cast pictured in sup port of Clara Kimball Young in "The Better Wife," at Crandall's Metropoli tan Theater. It seems, has been around a bit. He had to be, having been born In Calcutta. Some years after the event thus celebrated Nigel Bar rie acquitted himself with credit at Oxford, England, and Heidelberg, Herbert Gould, well-known navy song leader, returned to the Great Lakes Training Station this week, after a two weeks' stay with the At lantlc. fleet on board the U. S. S. Mis sissippi. This Is the first time In the history of the navy that a song leader has been detailed to a ship, but the remarkable success of Mr. Gould's ex periment is no doubt the forerunner of what may become a permanent fea ture later. Every night the good natured songster engaged the crew in chorus singing, leading them in new popular airs. A big, pleasant, lively voice, his chief asset, his good humor and honest effort to make everyone sing, has gained for him the hearty good-will of 1,400 men who joined blm in the sailor chorus. RUBYE IS INTERVIEWED CONCERNING DORALDINA Coraldina, who is appearing in Thomas Dixon's latest drama, -The i Red Dawn," at the Belasco Theater this week, is seen in a double role: t dancer and an emotional actress. Vs a dancer she Is called upon to 'xecute several original and daring numbers; as an actress she has sev eral Intensely dramatic moment, described as a "child of joy" in the play, Doraldina is given wide scope to display her dancing ability as well as her beauty of legs. During the action or the drama she has several lovers, with the farcical result that she can not settle down with any particular one of them. Her obvious theory is that "variety is the spice of life." and It is only when the free love doctrine brings about much bloodshed, that she realizes for the first time that the laws of society and God are the real solution to happiness. Over a dozen prominent actresses "tried out" for the role that Is being Interpreted by Doraldina, but none of them, according to Oscar Eagle, who directed the play, possessed the many qualifications of this player. Doraldina has a Broadway reputa tion ao an exceptional dancer. She has never before been seen in a "speaking part." However, she has the so-called "dramatic fire" that is responsible for 90 per cent of stage land's greatest stars. She possesses x rare Oriental beauty, Jdeally suited for her role in Mr. Dixon's latest f, ar- to send you wherever you're going," spoke Rubye de Remer. co-star with Catherine Calvert and Eugene O'Brien In "Fires of Faith," which opens Sun day at Moore's Rialto Theater. It seems that that sentence tells the most Important thing about this beauty of the stage and screen. She loves people and she loves to do things for them. She's the sort of girl who would share her last cent with anyone who happened to need It. "I love people who do big things," she went on. "and most of all people who start with nothing and in spite of tremendous discouragement reach the top of the ladder, don't you? 1 want to do tremendous thing my celf. and yet, do you know, I have "Are you sure you can't use ray. a fatal preference, that is a terrible car?" It's right down stairs with noth-1 handicap.' ing to do until 6 o'clock, and I'd love J We were awfully interested. wen. sne went on, "I'm not sure that I wouldn't rather play leads for a wonderful leading man. than I would be leading lady myself and have to bear the entire burden. You can't imagine the fun Harold Lockwood and I used to have. He could keep the side of his face to ward the camera perfectly serious, and at the same time say something absolutely ridiculously that would make the rest of us almost ruin the scene." She drew a long slch and nnirt for a moment, but Rubye de Remer never could be sad for very long, and she proceeded to tell us how happy she was working under the direction of Edward Jose in "Fires of Faith." and just how great and wonderful this picture would be. Kenneth Clark, who as Y. M. C. A. song leader became a friend to Wash ington and proved a helpful and in spiring spirit in the troubled times of war in the National Capital, was a stimulus to the music aboard the United States ship Kroonlaqd when he returned home last month with the Seventy-ninth division. "When I was in Paris a short while before sailing," Mr. Clark said in an article in Musical America. "I called to see Ernest B. Chamberlain, who now has charge of the Y. M. C. A. song leaders' division overseas. He showed me letters from the welfare officers of four divisions and of two base sections, asking the Y. M. C. A. to send out a team of song leaders for their troops, as promised in a bulletin from G. H. Q. This official recognition of the work-of the song leaders' section came as a result of the experiments along- the line of training soldier . song- leaders In 'Franceunder the dfijectfon 'of Mat shall :M.

He says: "At this concert I met Walter Charmbury, formerly bandmaster of the 304th engineers of our division. Since leaving us he had received his commission as second lieutenant. He told me that he was In a piano class under Philip at the Conservatoire." American composers whose composi tions are used for the quartet selec tions.

Music by. Radio! Reports have come in of dancing to music by radio in mldocean. The fact seems as much a miracle as a literal acceptance of the above sentence might justify. And the tacts are that radio has "picked up" music from one vessel at sea, and been used on another ship far distant to furnish a pastime for the passengers. Out at the Bureau of Standards, too. music by radio has been used for dancing. And this is the way it is handled: A phonograph was used for the mu sic, placed in the basement of the radio building. Then the radio ap paratus was adjusted to it in the same way It is used for transmitting a mes sage. The "receiver" was set up in another building, where the dancing was held, the sound being received through what looks like the usual telephone transmitter. It was then magnified, by means of a megaphone, so that it could be heard all over the room. This receiving apparatus was dem onstrated to the writer at the Bureau of Standards recently. And taking it from a purely unscientific viewpoint merely as- an astonishing, and to the scientists whose work finds this music but an episode, as but a casual illustration it still furnished a fas cinating promise of a later develop ment. How It Is Done. The wires of the "receiver" are In sulated in what loosk like, a crude pine window frame, such as is used In building. To this was attached a "field box" used where transportation of the apparatus Is desired. Then the telephone receivers were given the writer, and there you were! The fact that space and no visible connection served to bring the sounds are now facts that are too well known to re quire an exposition of this most un canny of modern inventions. At the Metropolitan Opera House, some time ago, the directors had a telephone adjustment in the private offices in the front of the building whereby they could by the opening of the connection hear what was go ing on, on the stage. But how much more wieldly seems the "wireless." And the sound, as Announced for presentation by the Garrick Players in August is the famous morality play "Every woman," by Walter Browne, described as the largest dramatic and musical play ever produced. "Evervwoman" Is a spectacle that won the acclaim of thousands during its seasons on tour. Tom illrj William Fox hero of western nlm drama, promises to break into print with a real, honest-to-good-ness book dealing with the six chief adventures of his exceedingly adven turous life.
