THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, WEDNESDAY. DECEMBER 3, 1913
Pageant of
Seven Seas
Is Success
Spectacular Production for
Sailors' Benefit Enjoyed by
Those in Attendance _
MARY ASHE MILLER
Beautiful, spectacular, colorful was
San Francisco's first pageant, which
opened last night and which reaped
a golden harvest for the beneficiary,
the Seamen's Institute.
"The Pageant of the Seven Seas,"
staged at Dreamland rink, with Gar
net Holme of the University of Cali
fornia as pageant master, brought
from each of its seas the most bril
liant and effective of episodes and
individuals. Jason and his argonauts,
Columbus and the welcoming Spanish,
Magellan, his stern soldiers and the
natives of the Philippine island where
he met his death. Sir Francis Drake
and the English of his period, John
Paul Jones at the gay court of Ver
sailles, and the nOrth pole scene, in
: which appeared not only intrepid ex
plorers, but the entire cast from all
the episodes, who joined, irrespective
of race, in the singing of "America,"
as a finale.
Not a moment of these scenes but
brought some keen delight to the
eye, either through the effectiveness
of the costuming or the grace of the
dancing, which ranged from the ex
quisite fairy like dance of Miss Ma
rion Walter, as leader in the French
court scene, to the energetic war
dance df the soldiers from the Pre
sidio, clad as natives of the Island
of Cebu. *
Probably nothing won the house
more completely than the minuet of
the children in the Paul Jones scene.
Tiny lads and lassies in the most
gorgeous of court' costumes danced
with marvellous skill and charm.
Tonight and ' tomorrow night the
pageant will be repeated and this aft
ernoon the Palace hotel will be
thronged from 4 to 7 o'clock for the
"The Dansant," which is given in
connection with the pageant. Tomor
row afternoon will be children's day
at Dreamland and a scene from "Alice
in Wonderland,*' as well as other joys,
will be staged.

Another opportunity for the Amer
ican playwright has made its appear
ance. This time, however, the demand
is for playlets and for playlets of
every description—dramas, comedies,
farces and tabloid musical comedies.
And, in addition, for those with ideas
not yet wrought into definite shape or
form there is also an opportunity, for
the ideas —mere suggestions—are
likewise in demand.
The request that material be sub
mitted comes from Lew Fields, propri
etor of the Forty-fourth Street Music
halL
"For the guidance of authors,'" said
the manager of the Forty-fourth
Street Music hall," it should be said
that only the best playlets of all
classes are wanted. Many writers
have found that their products, on one
hand were too elaborate for vaudeville
production, and, on the other, were
too short too abbreviated, for produc
tion as entertainments to occupy an
entire evening. The Forty-fourth
Street Music hall now affords an out
let for such material.
The scripts submitted must be ac
companied by return postage and a
stamped self-addressed envelope.

* Miss Lehman's Income- avecages the

"I am very proud of -my success,"

Regarding San Francisco as a the- !
atrlcal city, Miss Lehman said:
"I don't believe it will ever become
a producing center for the reason that
there is not enough contiguous terri-'
tory to feed shows to. As for the class
of productions here, I think it ranks
almost on a par with New York. Those
