NEW PANTAGES THEATER IS OPENED TO PUBLIC High Class Vaudeville Will Be Presented in Pretty Play house in S. Broadway SHIRLEY OLMYPIUS Alex Pantages, who Is rapidly becom ing a factor In the amusement world, added the thirty-third house to his vaudeville circuit when he opened the Los Angeles Pantages theater, situated Jn Broadway between Fifth and Sixth streets, last night. Though the paint Is scarcely dry In the building and many makeshifts had to be resorted to In or der that the performance could be giv en, two capacity audiences left the theater happy and satisfied. When all the finishing touches have been added to the theater, especially on the stage, and everything Is in running order, the Fantages will take rank as one of the most comfortable places of amusement in Los Angeles and will gain and hold well deserved popularity. At the opening last night Mr. Pan tages, his wife and children, W. M. Garland and a party, John Blarfßwood and his party, Dr. Hal Curtis, a Chi cago theatrical magnate; Octavius Morgan, O. W. Morgan and J. A. Wells, architects of the theater, and a party and Edward F. Mullen and L. F. Cole, Pacific coast representative of the Pan tages circuit, and his wife, occupied boxes. The first ticket sold went to Capt. A. J. Louis, who stated last night thta he intends having the pasteboard framed, after which he will present it to Mr. Pantages as a memento of the opening. Souvenirs In the shape of programs printed on Bilk cloth were distributed. Telegrams from the man agers of the various Pantages theaters ■were received by Manager John A. Johnson, who came here from Portland to take charge of the theater. A large number of beautiful floral pieces were sent Manager Johnson by friends who •wished him well in his new office. The Pantages theater Is well ar ranged, seats 1000 persons and is abso lutely fireproof. The stage especially is one of the largest and best arranged in Los Angeles. J. O. Chancy, who has been with the Pantages circuit for sev eral years, is stage manager of the new theater. By the manner In which he made all the acts appear apparently ■without a hitch, although few of the modern stage facilities were at hand last night, Mr. Chancy showed himself a capable man for his office and one ■who will add not a little to the gen eral excellence of. the entertainments to be given. J. Mulierl Is director of the orchestra. The Yalto duo, whirlwind dancers; Maurice Burkhart, singing comedian and impersonator; Lelliott brothers, woh present an interesting instrumen tal act; Mac Lean and Bryant In a clever little dramatic sketch entitled "17-20 in tho Black;" Sophie Tucker, coon ehouter, and Barnold's dog and monkey actors, one of the most inter esting animal acts seen in Los Angeles In many days, were those who made up the initial Pantages program. Each act more than satisfied the audience. ACTS ON ORPHEUM BILL SUIT MOST ANY TASTE Three turns on the current Orpheum bill vie for first place this week. From the standpoint of magnitude and mag nificence "Kris Kringle's Dream" is the very best turn on the bill. From the standpoint of pure entertainment Al. Jolson Is far and away ahead of all others. From the standpoint of dramatic worth "Sweethearts" Is not only the best of the bill but Is In a class by Itself. The Individual taste may be easily satisfied, therefore, by the Orpheum menu this week. "Kris Kringle's Dream" is an act taken bodily from the more or less successful musical extravaganza, "Top 'O Th' World." The Doll Prin cess, Peppermint Kid, Jack-ln-the- Eox, Polar Bear and other characters found in favorite books of the nur sery are seen on the stage. AddcJ to the antics of these is the "Collie Bal let" in which six pretty girls dance around six beautiful Scotch collies. Then, too, there are songs and dances by others in the cast, making tho whole affair an act which will appeal to adults and children, particularly the latter. Vivian Ford, as the Doll princess, makes an especially pleasing Impression. "Sweetht ts" Is a dramatic sketch presented in a imst artistic manner by Mr. and Mrs. Erwin Connelly. The playlet tells of how two youngsters, parted when young, remain loyal to each other until their hair Is silvered and their bodies old and bent. The eweet simplicity of the story told in a manner sucn as only Sir Gilbert Parker, the author, possesses, makes an instant i.ppeal to one's feelings. Be sides this the two characters are enact ed In a truly artistic manner by Mr. and Mrs. Connelly. The blu... and hearty speech of Mr. Connolly and the Bhy, retiring ways of 1' . Connelly, fit the roles they portray exactly. Al Jolson, though a holdover, made F>- big a hit yesterday as he did a ■week ago. His particular brand of entertainment seems to suit the desires of the majority of vaudeville-lovers to a nicety. George McKay and Jnhn Cantwell In a poor mixture of comedy, songs end dances, and tlie Krags, novelty gymnasts, are the other new turns on the bill. Minnie Dugree and her com pany, "Tho Minister's Wife;" the Kauffma.is, bicyclists, and Eenee, novelty musician, holdover. 'GIRLS' AT THE BELASCO FURNISHES HEARTY LAUGH Whenever girls hate men or when ever men hate girl?, there's a reason. Usually it is because they have been Jilted or are so personally unattractive that the opposite u-x will not deign to notice them. The former reason hap pens to be the potent factor which caused Pamela Gordon, secretary and stenographer, to take a vow of eternal celibacy and attempt to make all who came within her >phere of influence take and keep that same vow. • She could have tried .igaln with eminent success, for she certainly is pretty and charming. But she preferred to remain a man-hater until che met the com mon fate of all of her kind. She fell^ desperately In love with a mere man and left no doubt in everybody's mind that she intended allowing the gentle man to engage the services of a parson at the earliest possible moment. All this became apparent lust night at the initial production at the Belaseo theater of "Girls," trie of the late Clyde Fitch's numerous satirical effusions on modern social tendencies. In the first act we all became aware that Para would sooner or later marry the gen tleman in the evening dress, for we knew the man-hat^r had mot her fate (for a second time, according to her own admission). And we knew her Celibate club would sooner or later go the way of all such clubs, because mutiny was evident from the speeches Mrs. Claudia Hazen White, Candidate for State Regent of Woman's League vo s»/ .V **-*?''Jfir ' 'Mm '"'-sari mi ».* Mrs / / / jL^^j^\^^^^B ■ 111 and actions of the members. Three girls living together and fighting the world with poor ammunition and pretty faces have little chance to escape the married state. And they didn't, al though their speeches and actions up to the time when they cuddled up close to "one of those big brutes," and even then furnished three hours o£ enjoy ment. Some In the Belasco audience lust night were so overjoyed that but tons and stays must have groaned. I think one woman was hysterical. As Pamela Gordon, Eve Kelly was delightful. Her expressed hatred of all men was a bit vociferous at times, but she gave an efccellent reading of the role, taken as a whole. Lewis Stone had a part lust to his measure and liking In the role of Edgar Holt, and he made his usual weekly hit. Adele Farrington as Lucille Purcelle. elocutionist, who liked the men and was not afraid to say so, but who never seemed able to make the men like her, was screamingly funny. Emma Lowry and Helene Sullivan, two mem bers of the Celibate club, gave good account of themselves. Charles Glblyn must have had much experience with apartment house Janitors, so exact was his portrayal of one of that breed of pests. Richard Vivian, Frank Camp, Ida Lewis and others of the Belasco organization appeared to advantage. Si O. DRAMATIC NOTES Three large audiences greeted the opening of the new Sullivan & Con- 1 sidine bill of vaudeville, which opened at the Los Angeles theater yesterday afternoon and night. This bill is as good as anything that this popular priced theater of variety has offered this season. The old plan of but two shows a night, except on Saturday and Sunday nights, when three perform ances are given, will be the rule this week. , The new bill contains three excel lent features. These are Dorothy De Schelle and her company, offering Sew ell Collins 1 clever comedy dramatic playlet entitled "Thirty Dollars;" the Mayvilles with their liliputian wonders and living marionettes, and Rose and Ellis, barrel jumpers. Others on the bill are Lew Hoffman, Musical Irving and Lozelle. • • • Another crowd filled Bristol Pier cafe Sunday to hear the new headliner of the week's bill, Eileen Adams, an op eratic soprano, who charmed the east last year while In concert. Miss Adams' voice is a mezzo-soprano of wonderfully clear and sweet character. She has rich quality from the lowest tone to the maximum of her remarkable range. She excelled In "Mignon" romance and gave a fine interpretation of a "Tannhauser" passage. Carmen Phillips, whose voice has augmented pier crowds, rendered a number of new songs to the satisfac tion and enjoyment of her audiences. Roderic Wanee. master of the piano forte and a singer of considerable re pute, still is a member of the hostelry company and pleased with his rendi tions and selections. Performances still are given each evening at the pier." MISSING YOUTH RETURNS TO FRIGHTENED PARENTS Anxiety over the whereabouts of Chester Hibbard, 16 years old, son of Edward K. Hibbard of the William Hoegee company, who disappeared from his home in Hollywood Sunday afternoon, was dispelled yesterday, when he returned home, Haying that he had passed the night in Burbank.

V., Sept. 26.—Al though the special board of Inquiry will not report on the case for several days, drastic measures of discipline are being meted out at the military academy as the result of the cadets having twice administered the "si lence" t < Captain ltufus E. Long-, an "Lieutenant Colonel Frederick W. Sib ley, the commandant, has issued the following order: •Until further orders cadets will con fine thmselves tj their rooms. During rCease from quarters, Immediately after breakfast and immediately after dinner, un 1 call to quarters, cadets will confine themselves to the limit- of the urea of barracks and the cadet sentinels will be posted ten minutes after drill and will make inspection c ■ rv half hour." Thiß means that the entiu corps is practically under arrest, denied all privileges and permitted to see no one not officially cmnected with the mili tary academy. The order will remain in force until the return of General Bar rick, the sttperintendrnt, who is ex- pected tomorrow. It is not often that the "silence" treatment Is inflicted upon a superior officer, and the present cane Is the first that has occurred since Captain Lindsay was "silenced'" ten years ago. An inquiry resulted in that officer be ing relieved from the military acad emy. With all recreation abolished, football practice necessarily has been suspend ed temporarily and all hop dates in tho near future canceled. From various sources it has been lamed that Captain Longan an "si lenced" for questioning the veracity of cadets. As untruthfullneHS is branded tho most despicably thing in cadet life, to question a man's word is one of the worst insults that can be of fered. .

CABINET HOUSE PARTY HELD AT WHITE HOUSE Taft and Advisers Have a Long Meeting; Discuss Supreme Court Vacancies / WASHINGTON, Sept. 26.—The cab inet house party at the White House is in full swing tonight. Eight of the nine members of the president's official family moved in today. They held a formal session In the cabinet room of the executive offices in the forenoon and continued their informal discus sions at a luncheon which began at 1:30 p. m. and did not end until nearly 4 o'clock. During the late afternoon the various cabinet officers returned to their respective departments, but gath ered again at the White House for din nor and a long evening talk on the south veranda. The president's forthcoming appoint ments to the supreme court were the chief topic of discussion. It is said there are no outstanding candidates for the supreme court vacancies. The pres ident is keeping his mind open. There Is little chance that his selections will be made much before congress con venes In December. From the time it meets in October until the senate confirms a new ap pointment by the president, the su preme court will proceed without a chief justice. Nothing has happened to change the well founded impression that Governpr Hughes will be made chief Justice, but his nomination will not be announced until the senate Is in session.

The name of F. B. Harriman, a for mer Illinois Central official, one of the defendants in the present case, also was directly connected with the bills for car repairs in the testimony of Harry A. Hoyes, a traffic clerk for the Illinois Central. Hoyes declared that many of the repair bills of the Blue Island Car and .Equipment company, through which it Is charged the com pany lost many dollars, were "O.
