WITH THE ACTORS
Miss Marion Hall, a young lady with a pleasing voice, received rounds of applause for the artistic style in which she rendered the balad hit “Some Day Will Never Come." Billy Gulfport set the audience wild with his “Find My Gal" song. His pantomine dancing showed the work of a real artist. Chick Beeman, the great Minstrel parody version of the song hit “Room end-man, stormed the house with his 202." This is the greatest Minstrel first part ever staged in the City of Chicago, as was evidenced by the Voice of approval by everyone when the curtain dropped. The “Ollio” opened with the fa mous Old Time Darkies Quartette which was well worth the price of admission. John Turner, Eward Goodbar, J. Lewis Johnson and George Conley are the members of this quartette. A pair of swell society dancers were next on the program and reg istered a distinct hit. Chick Beeman in a up-to-date monologue held the audience in a spell of hilarity fifteen minutes. The McCarvers in their big time act, wonderfully pleased, and went over for a hit. Gulfport and Brown really had a hard position on the bill but came out bigger than ever, as they worked harder than I have ever seen them work before. The sweet harmony singing was heavily encored, and when the curtain dropped on them it was raised four times in order to permit them to acknowledge the thunderous applause. The show closes with a farce com edy skit called “The Black Justice which was amusing. As Tony Lang ston, the great dramatic critic would say, “this is the best show seen here in a long time." The finale curtain will be Sunday night, June 25th. Why Girls Leave Home The States Theatre will show “Why Girls Leave Home" in a dramatic screen version of the famous stage suc cess. Anna Q. Nillson will star in this picture. Over 65,000 girls disappeared last year. There are thousands of rea sons. the most important of which are vividly depicted in this pulse-stirring photodrama. There will be the usual comedy' and news reel in addition to this feature picture. This picture will be shown on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, June 22nd adn 24th. EDITOR ROBERTS IN CITY Frederick M.

When the curtain went up the spectacle was great to see, a man named “Keith” started the ball roll ing with a hot jazz number, and re sponded to several encores. Mr. Rodger Jones, in a composition of his own named “Jane Dear,” was ably rendered.

AVENUE THEATRE The "Flat Below," in short, is a success from beginning to end; and the large throng of first nighters that Witnessed the initial performance all left the Avenue Theatre exclaiming almost in chorus, “It’s a wonderful play, and everybody in Chicago should see it.” There is no wonder such a spirit existed, for The Flat Below is worthy of such comment, and the manage ment is to be congratulated for the revival of real Negro art in Chicago, and much credit iB due to the authors and producers of such a realistic play.
