P'resenting programs that are truly remarkable, considering the time of the year. this being conceded generally as~ the off season in all theatrical circles, the Strand announces for the week beginning tomorrow and closing next Sunday a line-up of vaudeville attraction and photo-dramativ fe& tures that cannot help but appeal to the most fastidious. The headline number is "The Five Petrovas." a company of male and fe'male artists who, In an elaborate stage-setting, present many wonderful feats in hand-to-hand balancing and numerous spectacular posing scenes. unning this number an even race for popularity is Ethel May Hall and her company in a hilarious one-act comedy entitled "The WVrong Guy."

As the photoplay attraction for the Preparing Garrick Players In Showing Cui The Garrick Players, who tonight begin a limited series of important dramatic presentations with Irving Cummings. the noted photoplay lumi nary, featured in each production, have a Washington thextrical record to their credit. It will be scored to night at 14:30 o'clock, when the Gar rick curtain ises on the first per formance of "A Prince There Was." the George M. Cohan success the Garrick Players are presenting. The tlarriikers' reenrd lies in the fact that to rthe first time in the history of the Washington stage a Washington stock company is present ing a photoplay actor of the first rank as leading man. That photoplay acor is Irving Cummings, a virile. intense young romantic thespian who today stands on the threshold of screen stardom. It is true that Earle Foxe. the oar rickers' leading man last season, had had some experience in the photoplay realm but Foxe was a mere neophyta, in the camera work and a man whose chief experience was confined solely to the stage. Cummings. however, is a stage actor with a brilliant photoplay recnrd that has lifted him into a new contract with Paramount-Artcraft for the conm ing season that will probably be the means of bringing him even more into prominence. During the past week he has t'een toiling steadily at his part in "A Prince There Was" and for that week alone he has steadily declined a per fect flood of invitations to functions of various kinds about Washington. From now on, however, Mr. Cum mings has arranged to accept a num her of the engagenents tendered him and h- will unquestionably draw in his wake a large following of an thusiastic admirers. It is noteworthy that the presenta tion of this play at the Garrick tn night, with Mr. Cummings in the Cohan part, will constitute the first oppor tunity Washingtonians have had to witness "A Prince There Was" within GLEN ECHO MANAGEMENT PLANS FOR NEXT SEASON With commendable foresight the management of Glen Echo park has already placed orders for lumber and material needed for improvement, sceduled for the park for the season of 1921. This early action was taken to insure having it here s, that work can start immediately this fall after the resort closes. Two of the innovations will be dance pavilion and the new carrousel. For the dancers an entirely new scheme of operation is planned. When the work is enmpleted the dancers will have a pavilion with the largest floor space of any in this section and the pavilion will be the finest in the Routh, including every feature for the comfort of the dancers that is found in New York's dance palaces. The second of the more important improvements on schedule is the in stallation of a new carrousel, which is now being constructed In Philadel phia. It is of the vet? latest type and several features- are being incor porated that are original with Frank leinlon, superintendent of Glen Echo. who with his staff will erect the building this winter to house the new carousel. This building will be glass enclosed with a roof supported only by outside posts.

There will be regular matinees on Thursday and Saturday each week during Mr. Cummings' engagement as leading man and patrons are request ed by the management to file seat orders early in the week to avoid dio appointment.

It will be disclosed for the first time at the Shubert-ie las'o Theater Monday night, August ':, and after a week here is slated to go to the Thirty-ninth Street Theater, in New York. While the nature of the play has not been divulged it should be some thing out of the ordinary because the reputation for clevereness achieved, by the Hattons in "Upstairs and1 Down," "The Great Lover." and "Lom bardi, Ltd.," can be relied upon to? make any new play from their pens command the respectful attention of the theatergoing public. .Tose Ruben, the young player who first came into prominence by lils' performance with the Washington Square' Players in New York, and who, last season appea red as the moody musician wIth Elsie lFerguson In "Sacred and Profane Love," is the featured player.

He is one of those men who have no age, and, like a coin worn smooth, no mark of country. With a face schooled to mask all but the keenest emotions, and wIth a rare reserve 'WhIch clothes him andI his thoughts from the casaa observ er, he impresses one as a man of mystery--a striking, forceful person ality, as fascinating as he Is baffling. It Is a role ideally suited to Mr. Ru ben's temperament and style of act' I ng.

Its prosperity was done up in a permanent wave: the fiercest Summer heat falls to unroll it. COUNTRY WILL PAY. I take it the whole country will be in on Miss Claire's vacation-the whole country will be paying for it. as any expert in political economy. which I am not. can tell you. When I asked an old New Yorker. w ho has been here eighteen months. to go to the theater with me, he yawned and said he'd seen all the old things. including the July openings. But when I happened to mention that I had fourth row seats for the Lyceum he came along like a kid to a circus. It seems old New Yorks can't get enough of this curious entertain ment. which is perhaps as subtle a bit of showmanship as Broadway ever has known. You see, it's not really a play at all; that's its delicate trick. M1R ACt 11.0'561.Y' STAG.P.D. It has the prestige of a play. of course. It is miraculously stAged and bears the impressive name of Pelasen. nnd has in its cast such dramatic dignitaries as Bruce McRae a nd H1. Rteevf s-mith. But "The Gold Diggers" is all about, and all is --comedy: it's a "show." There's the psychological urge of make dancing a real pleasure. The music. which is by far the best and most popular to be had is furnished by the Meyer Davis Qrchestra, whose lively sirs drew neArly everyone to the pavilions. Intermission was spent by rnany strolling around the lake. the edge of which is illuminated by myriads of clectrio lights. STEAMER CHARLES MACALESTER.

And even so, In& Claire ain't even the half of it. Nor is Jobyna How. land, the human trombone and as funny a giantess as ever shook the stage. I'd say that 5 per cent of this subtle suress is chorus girl. Some of the characters are nothing less than the pluck of Broadway chorus girls acting their own autobiog. raphies. ATTRACTIVE CHORUS GIRLS. "Intimate," as they say of revues with runways. "Why. there never was a roof show so "intimate" as "The Gold Diggers," whose chorus girls seem to sit on your knee and tell it down your back. Large sections of the "low down" on "Gold Digging"- -which is modern rhetoric for parting a chorus girl's rmale friend from his large change must have been written by a stenog rapher at a keyhole. Would three queens of the chorus reveal themselves to the public for Mr. Zeigfeld or Mr. Shubert? Never! They'd give up their cars first. But for the wizard of the drama they fall gratefully; eight times a week they give their game away and like it. There's a terrible stage mother in this play-an abrupt and neudleps mother who at the last moment Is brought out from the back of the apartment to attest purity. Somebody will try to tell you that Bielasco put her in as a concession to the public and don't you believe it. If I know the old master, he put mamma in to make his chorus girls believe it's a play and not a confes sion.

The curious tangle was revealed in the supreme court when Mists Baco attempted to obtain a writ of habean corpus, stating that Heidemann. a teacher of languages, was the father of her child, and that he and his wife refused to permit her to see It. Heldefnanno admitted in court that he had been intimate with Miss Baco, hut charged that the mother was un fit to rear the child. Mrs. Heldemanu appeared with her husband, and Indi cated her desire to care for the child. A referee recommended that the Hieidematnns keep the baby. Thereupon Heidemann filed an application fo' formal adoption. In his petition the ,elderly teacher states that he is a "private tutor with an extensive cli entele and ample means, and iny wife. a retired tutor, who owns real prop erty of great value." The referee's report was approved by Supreme Court Justiee Whitaker BOY OF 12 CHAINED TO STAKE FOR 15 HOURS INDIANAPOLIS, July 25. - Anty Dleuser, twelve, is in the detention home at his own request, andt his mother.
