STAGE PRANKS TWIST PLAYERS ERNEST WARDE TELLS OF AC TORS' "JOSHING" DELIGHT OF WAGS TO MAKE CAST LAUGH Noted Stage Director Has Good Yarn About Breakfast in Private Car with Famous Shakespearean Actor, Richard Mansfield BY NTIT.SOX KBtOBIAKD To those who pay money at the box offices of theaters and enjoy from in front the work of the. actor folk back of the footlights, It sometimes Is In teresting to hear intimate, homely anecdotes of the actors themselves and of the pranks and jokes that are per petrated before the eyes of hundreds Who leave the theater In blissful ignor ance. "While Ernest C. Ward* was in Los Angeles as stage dire, tor and B with Max Flgman in ■'Mary Jane's Pa" he had more than one enterttaining Story to tell of men who have ranked well to the front among American Thespians. He has lived a life well qualified to put him in intimate touch with men of the stage. His father. Frederick Warde, has been known for years as orte of the leading Shake spearean nctors of the American si For several years the younger Warde was stage director for Richard Mans field, and prior to that engagement he i played minor parts with his father when Frederick Warde anil Louis James were starring through the coun try in Shakespearean roles. "It all looks real and earnest from the front, but there are some sad jokes jilayed back of the footlights." sai.l Krnest Warde to a gathering of friends at a luncheon the other day. "It's true—it is work, but you know those two boys in the printing room scene in 'Mary Jane's Pa.' where Fig man talks to the two youngsters, one at a time, and says some very serious, philosophic things, well;it's awful hard for the biggest boy. What Flgman cays is quite impressive. But you don't know about the boys. The printer's j devil can laugh, because he's sup posed to be Irresponsible, anyhow. But the other lad, who is getting out the paper, is quite as young in years—but his lines call for a serious demeanor, j and when Figman gets serious across the type case and tells him what a good boy he is those in the audience do not j hear the little whispers and asides that put the youngster into a fit of agony to keep the lines of his face straight and restrain himself from laughing. Louis James a Wag "Perhaps of all the lot that I have known Louis James is the rankest lokesmith. He always Is ready for a, lark, and he does not care who has to j pay the piper, either. I remember one j night we were playing Shakespeare's •Julius Caesar.' Father was playing Brutus and Mr. James was playing Antony. In the Interval before the last act Mr. James saw a picture of ,a coryphee on the wall In the corridor leading to his dressing room. "Seized with an inspiration, he tore it down and hustled it into his dress ing room. When the last act comes on the two armies, one led by Brutus and one by Antony, face each other on the stage. There are serious lines in this parley, and when the truce was Saved from THE Surgeon's Knife Says Mrs. Polander, Who Was Cured of a Large Goitre in Five Weeks by Doctor Glass, the Great Electro Magnetic Specialist, at 308& South Spring Street. Doctor Glass The Noted English Specialist Who Has Been Performing Such Remarkable Cures All Over the East During the Last Three Years Has Permanently Located in Los Angeles The doctor is fully able and prepared to cure and restore to health the most obstinate cases, as he has done for thousands of others during the last three years, and should not be classed with the too common and unscrupu lous charlatan and quack.

ACTOR WHO CAN TELL OF MANY EXPERIENCES jjo^ *%& &M ERNEST C .WARDE called Antony faced BrutUl to give his iiiisn er. " "In your bad words, Brutus, you give good words. Witness the hole you . in Caesar's heart, crying "Long live Caesar," ' were the tin :« of Mr. James as he faced the army of Urutus and threw out his shield so that only the edge was visible! to the audience. There was no loss of strength or dig nity In the manner of the recitation, but there, before all of us of the Bi v host, was the inner side of thf shlc Id, and there, carefully pasted in to mate a fine tit, was the picture of the ballet dancer. They had to ring down the curtain before Shakespeare intended that it should be—and the audience ap plauded. "Then there was Mr. MansiVeld. He was a hard man to get along with but he had a kind heart behind it all. I remember one morning in Indianapolis. I was stage director of the company and we had been playing 'Monsieur Beaucalre.' It is the home of Mr. Booth Tarkington, the author, and after the play on our last night he took ua to the club for dinner. -We had a good time—that goes without saying, for Tarkington is a royal good fellow—and the next morn ing a messenger boy hustled up to my room and told me they were holding our special train for my benefit. "I got to the train before things ivere too bad, and after I had fairly caught second wind and rubbed my head a few times I went to the man ager and said: 'Where's my breakfast?' " 'The property man ate your break fast, I guess, about an hour ago,' was the gruff, rejoinder. 'You might send on to a railroad Junction and order a cup of coffee. May have to send It out on a- handcar,' and he started to back away. Makes Boast Good " 'I guess I'll go into the old man's private car and tak" breakfast with him," I suggested, without thinking, and I rubbed my head again. And then I heard the manager softly whisper ing to the other members of the com pany that Wardo was going in to see the old man—that was the pet name for Mr. Mansrield—and breakfast with him by special request. I had to do it or lose out. It was a hard game but I'd started to play and had to finish. "I went back to the private car of Mr. Mansfield and the negro cook met me just inside the door. 'Can I get a cup of black coffee this morning?' I ited in a very low tone. 'Yes, Indeedy; yes, indeedy, right away, sah. Marse Warde,' was tin- genial answer. J, s step this away.' "I went into the observation end of the car, but that conversation had aroused Mr. Mansfield. 'Who's there? ■Who's there?' he called, and his head appeared around the corner. "I told him the truth and this was the answer: 'Why not sit down and take breakfast with mo, Mr. Warded Would be pleased to have you.' "I did, and my negro friend brought in a steaming hot breakfast tit lor the Kmls, Then there came a twinkle into Mr. Mhnsfield's eyes. 'Isn't there some thing else we can give you? Is there anyone you care to see in the com pany?' "That was my cue. 'I wish you'd call that manager. I just want him to see me here eating this breakfast. You might ask him just when we are sched uled to get into Milwaukee and how long we are to be switching in Chi cago.' "He did it: snarled at the manager as though lie had never been known to do a kind thing in his life; laughed about it with me when it was all over Mid 1 strutted back into the other Pullman with a consciousness of work well done, such as I have seldom known. That manager was | 1 I me for a long time." TWO ARRESTED IN NORTH Louis p.

Heeds Party Promises [Associated Press! WASHINGTON, Feb. 24.— Following his return from a two days' trip to Now York and .Newark. N. J., today , president Tafl had several conferences] with members of the two houses of congress regarding the legislative pro gram. ~ Recently it was stated that he would I ' press only four measures at this ses sion of congress, and the printed list | omitted all reference to the conserva- , tion bills, whereas the president has j repeatedly pointed out that he would j insist as far as he could that at least i some of the conservation measures be made laws before the present session adjourned. The bills which the president de clared today that he looked for con gress to pass in redemption of party pledges are: Establishing postal Hav ings banks, amending and strengthen ing the Interstate commerce law. The conservation measures giving the president the right to withdraw public lands from entry and to con tinue the withdrawal until revoked by himself or by an act of congress and providing for a reclasslflcatlon of lands. The anti-injunction bill and the Statehood for New Mexico and Arizona ! bills may be consolidated. In addition to these the president has recommended several other mat ters of legislation, Including the bill for a new form of government for j Alaska, the bill for federal incorpora tions and the bill creating a public health bureau. I Mr. Taft let it be known that while he would urge only the five measures i set forth as party pledges he has by no means abandoned the other meas j ures and he will call the attention of congress to them again at the begin ning of the next session. He will con tinue to urge the measures until some | definite action is taken on them. As ; the other measures largely reflect his personal views, however, tha president ■ does not think they should stand in I the way at this time of bills designed to fulfill party pledges. i ST.
