"Pitter Patter”
At the Majestic theatre tomorrow
night Messrs. Max and Edmund
Plohn will present "Fitter Patter,”
the reigning musical comedy suc
cess, fresh from its triumphant run
In New York where for a half year
it crowded the Longacre theatre.
"Pitter Patter” is aptly described as
a "cloudburst of mirth, melody and
movement” because of its many song
hits, its incessant fun and the many
dainty dance numbers interpreted
by the big company of metropolitan
artists and the famous Rainbow
chorus. It comes here with the orig
inal elaborate stage production and
beautiful costumes that contributed
so much to its Broadway success.
The story of "Pitter Patter,"
which deals with the love affair of
a very bashful young man who tries
to hide the fact that he is a war
hero, is replete with side-splitting
situations and some that are thrill
ing. There is a scene at the bottom
of a copper mine where the young
man has hidden himself, in vain,
from the fair sex, a very realistic
rainstorm during which he is ma
rooned under an awning with a
pretty girl while the stage is literal
ly flooded with real water, and an
exquisite view of Havana harbor by
moonlight where the young man
just naturally forgets his bashfulness
and wins the girl he adores. A beau
tiful love story told in haunting mel
odies, gay dialogue and sprightly
dances Is “Pitter Patter." and local
theatregoers will soon understand
why New Y’ork claimed it so long
for its very own. In the splendid
cast will be seen such favorites as
Been Pole, Fern Rogers. Jack Kra
mer. Marguerite La Pierre, Harry
Murray, Lulu Swan, Russell Dark.
Frederick Webber. William Hugh
Mack, George Paige and other nota
ble favorites.

Casket is Selected in France
This Morning-Will be Sent
to Arlington
(By The Associated Press:)—Amer
ica's "unknown soldier” w'ho will
find an honored resting place in the
national cemetery at Arlington, Va„
was chosen here this morning. The
ceremony of selecting the casket to
be taken to America took place in a
little improvised chapel in the city
hall here and in keeping with a re
quest from the United States govern
ment was very simple and brief.
Sergeant Edward F. Younger of
Chicago. 111., was handed a small
bouquet of white and pink roses by
American officers present and ad
vanced to the little chapel passing |
through a line of French troops.
Four caskets had been placed in the
chapel by a contingent brought here
from Coblenz. Every one had been
asked to leave the chapel before
Sergeant Younger entered. He «■»'*•
ed slowly around the four caskets
three times, then stopped and plac- I
ed the roses on the casket facing
the entrance to the chamber. He
then came out, saluted the officers
and announced he had made his
selection. While the ceremony was
going on a French military band
played the "dead” march.
The casket was then removed to
another room and prepared for its
long trip to America. The only
words spo|<en were General DuBois
who said: "The French army feels
deeply honored to pay a simple trib
ute to America’s unknown soldier.”
I.ater the casket was placed in
the rotund of the City Hall which
was decorated with American flags
and flowers. The casket was draped
in an American flag.
*The second meeting of the Armis
tice Day Association will be held at
City Hall tomorrow' night. Repre
sentatives of all lodges are invited
to attend.
