The contrast of war m the two epochs is strikingly shown in th modern part of tin. picture, by the way Uncle Sam directs and guides his conquering heroes of today. The great spectacle of 50.000 soldiers In marching formation is but one of the features of "The Birth of a Race."

The Garrick Players are essaying "Everywoman" this week incident ally changing their opening night to tomorrow evening, instead of tonight. "Everywoman" Is too well known to need elaboration.

' OAVETV CHANGE PLEASES. As a result of its recently inaugu rated policy of restricting smoking to the upper floors, the management of the Gayety Theater is rccclxliig (. ngratulatlons from every side. It was. feared that the elimination of this privilege- long enjoyed by oiche.tra seat holders might tend to restrict the attMidanee of many of the house's rpgular pa:rons. But, far from bring the case, it has been found in actual practice that it is really a popular change. Futher more. it is actually bringing about Its original object- that of attracting patronage on the part of the ladies. Corlnne Griffith has begun work on "The Climbers." Vltagraph's screen version of the late Clyde Fitch's fa mous drama. Miss Grlffitl will have the role of Blanche Sterling, created by Amelia Bingham. Albert E. Smith, president of Vita graph, and Cyrus Townsend Bradv Are the authors of "Smashing Bar riers," William Duncaii'a new serial. More than half the fifteen cplsod s already have been completed. GARRICK. What is promised as the most elabo rate and most pretentious offering or (he entire Garrick Players' season opens tonight when, headed by Miss Julia Dean, the resident players' or ganization will present Henry W. Sav age's great dramatic achievement "Everywoman." The acquisition or Julia Dean to In terpret the title role was a master stroke on the part of the Shubert Garrick management. Miss Dean was for five years Washington's most pop ular stock star, and her production work has been such as to stamp her as one of the foremost women of the present day stage. With Earle Foxe cast in the part of King Love. Eileen Wilson as Youth, Doris Sheerin as Beauty, William Pringle an Nobody, and a host of other talent, the Garrick production prom ises to be one rff exceptional worth. There are no less than thirty-seven speaking characters, in addition to which there will be used a large num ber of supernumaries and a greatly augmented orchestra, under the baton t H. Bruce Healy. "Everywoman" is the sort of play that should give joy to all who wit ness it. The simplicity of its allegory renders it quick!) impressive, and the rather unusual pictorial values of the nroduction and the .organistic drift of he tnry otherwise capture and hold Interest. known players as Edward Mackay.

At the National Theater beginning 'omorrow night. Oliver Morosco will offer his latest comedy sucaess "Civi lian Clothes." This comedy is the work of Thompson Buchanan, who will doubtless lie recalled as the author or "A Woman's Way." "The Cub." "Life." and numerous other successes or recent years. "Civilian Clothes" Is his first "ffort since he was honorably discharged as a cap tain of artillery. In "Civilian Clotheh" Mr. Buchanan lias found an exceedinly timely sub loot for his clever pen the rather funny idea of just how much romance the discarding of a uniform may limlnatc from the male form In filr fminlno vca a iibjet wlfch will doubtless hit "close to home" In more than one feminine heart.
