MAUD ALLAN CAPTURES
ALL WITH HER DANCES
Symphony Orchestra, Directed by
Harley Hamilton, Plays Per
fect Accompaniment
SHIRLEY OLYMPIUS
MAUD ALLAN and her art, her
. classical dancing, captivated. an
:. audience more remarkable for
its size than its artistic brilliance and
perception at the Auditorium theater
last night. Those who went lor to sec
something sensational were disappoint
' ed,; for Maud Allan's dances are sinu
ous, ; not. sensual, the embodiments of
grace, not vulgarity. Miss Allan wears
diaphanous draperies and dances with
bare feet. She is a living representa
tion of Terpsichore.
Music never was made plainer than
last night. The dance was one of the
! earliest forms of expression into which
music was molded. Prom an accom
paniment for the feet music has be
come the expression of the soul. Miss
Allan has embodied both in her art.
When Miss Allan dances her body,
her arms, her lingers to the very last
joint, undulate. The poetry of motion
is expressed vividly through her trans
lucent covering. She moves, but she
seems not to be treading on the earth.
She fairly floats from one posture to
another.. With a crescendo of the
music her body rises and her arms
go gently upward.' Thus with "the
• gamut of : tones her movements keep
perfect'time and accord, affording the
listener'elucidation of the music clear
er than a printed score.
; Miss Allan's sinuous movements re
mind one of the kelp in the sea. When
the ocean is calm the kelp floats
gracefully outward. When the water
is turbulent the seaweed expresses the
moot! exactly. It is so with Miss Allan
In Interpreting the music.
; Possibly the most grippingly spectac
ular portion of the program was Grieg's
"Peer Gynt" suite. "Ase's Death" was
depicted by Miss Allan in a manner
which brought forth thunderous ap
plause. "The Dance of the Gnomes,"
with all its perversity, its fable, its un
reality, was to exquisitely executed that
the audience • demanded its encore.
Mendelssohn's "Spring Song," being
more or less familiar, was easily fol
lowed as Miss Allan danced to its
measures. One could Ma In fancy the
opening of buds, the plucking of flow
ers, the pursuit of birds by the nymph
in the woods, and all because of Maud
Allan and her art. In Rubinstein's
"Valse Caprice" Miss Allan seemed like
a series of figures taken from the vases
of ancient design. She floated from one
posture to another so rapidly yet so
deftly it was a revelation of delight to
all.
More than a word of praise should
be given the enlarged symphony or
chestra under the direction of Harley
Hamilton. Never has tho orchestra ac
companied bettor, and never has Mr.
Hamilton directed with more skill and
judgment, more accuracy and under
standing. The orchestral portion of the
evening was worth going a long way to
hear, even though Miss Allan were not
there to dance.
Tonight and tomorrow afternoon Miss
Allan will give slightly varied pro
grams. Her "Vision of Salome" Is not
on the program. It has not been defi
nitely determined whether eho will offer
"Salome." _ • %

One pair of expressive eyes, which
remind one of Anna Held; ten exceed
ingly nimble fingers, several Bongs
which are daring to say the least and
a "dramatic Incident" are the new
features of the Orpheum bill which
opened yesterday afternoon. The eyes
belong to Elsie Faye, who uses them
every time she sings. The fingers are
attached to Violet King, who plays a
violin and a piano at the same time.
The songs are from the pen and lips
of one William—better known as "Bll
jV Gould. The dramatic incident Is.
an abridgment of "The Devil," which
never should have been allowed on the
stage, and "The Servant in the House,"
which is a real play and should be
seen in its original form. The "dra
matic incident" gets by mainly on the
reputation of the two plays mentioned.
Elsie Faye's eyes and feet are her
fortune. She has a rather graceful
way of kicking away above her head.
Her voice suits her songs. Her two
assistants, Joe Miller and Sam Weston,
are clever enough dancers to be in an
act alone. Miss Faye, however, Is the
mainstay of the trio.
Violet King did not create a sen
sation when she first appeared upon
the stage yesterday afternoon. In fact
she did not make much of an im
pression until she was well Into her
act. Her cleverness is cumulative,
however, and when she finished her
act one realized her true worth. It
was for that reason »he was called
back several times, finally responding
to the applause with two violin solos
of more than ordinary merit. Her act
is the embodiment of clean cleverness,
something unusual in modern vaude
ville.
At times "Billy" Gould's songs-must
be taken with a pinch of salt, if the
hearer happens to be prudish. How
ever, none of his musical numbers or
stories are so very broad as to be
vulgar. They are more amusing. He
made good with everybody yesterday.
Holdover acts are Charlene and
Charlene, the Ahearn Cycling come
dians, Ida Puller, spectacular dancer,
and Lottie Williams and her company
presenting "On Stony Ground."

If every good play should contain "a
criticism of life," as has been de
clared by authorities, classic and con
temporary, then Henry Bernstein's
play, "The Thief," which <■'
Frohman will send, with Herberl
cey and Effle Shannon, to the Mason
opera houso next week, is, In this

Club News
At the regular meeting yesterday
afternoon of the Shell club, held in its
club house on South Figueroa street,
a large and attentive audience lis
tened to a most Interesting talk on
"Current Topics" by Mrs. Lou V. Cha
pln, who talked about all the most in
teresting events from the Halley comet
to the budget. She said also that a new
comet had appeared in the east which
seemed to be stirring up a great deal
iif interest, through Africa, down the
Nile, and the possibilities ware that it
would appear on the American horizon
about June 16, and .she thought a good
nanu- would be Theodore Africanus
Superbus. Going <"'. she touched on
the railroad strikes, the dispute be
tween Canada and (he United States
over waterways, the insurgents in con
gress, suffrage and .suffragettes, the
health of England's king, and the
budget; also the friendship between
Russia, France, Austria and England
which was causing a great deal of
uneasiness to the emperor of Germany.
The program was rendered as published
in the club calendar, and tea was
poured by Mrs. B. N. Pratt and Mrs.
