DAZIE BOOKED FOR ORPHEUM DAINTY DANSUESE HAS FANTASY Mile. Dazie, who is booked to appear in a dancing fantasy at the Orpheum. WKATHEH FORECAST II For San Francisco—Clear tonight; ' r Thursday clear and warmer, light northerly winds. 5 Mile. Dazie. the most noted Ameri can pantomime and classic dancer, who is to be the headline attraction next week at the Orpheum in Sir James Barries plea for an ancient family, "Pantaloon," is as big a favor ite in Europe as she is in Xew York, and possesses the distinction of being the first American ballerina to appear in opera in New York. The first gen uinely important hit scored by Mile. Dazie was in "The Belle of Xew York" at the Casino theater in Xew York. She then went to London and ap peared with brilliant success at the Palace theater there. Shortly after this she came back in disguise as "Le Domino P.ouge," pretending that she was a Russian danseuse unable to speak a word of English and making a phenomenal hit at the New York Roof garden. "Pantaloon" may be described as Sir James Barries pet child. He has always been very cautious about its presentation and has steadfastly re fused handsome offers for its use, claiming that Mile. Dazie was the only artist who could properly por tray the role of Columbine. Mile. Dazie brings with her her own com pany of pantomimists and a perfect stage equipment.
