The Byron Brothers expect a loop showing for their DcLuxc show "Breezy Times.” Actors, orchestra and stage hands all received short money for their week’s work at the Avenue Theatre, last week, and refused to open on Monday night.

"Follow Me” is the title, and a real show will be witnessed. Cliff Ross. Ernest Whitman, Billie Higgins and the Famous Legget Sisters arc in the lineup. The Avenue This house closed on last Sunday flight with "Breezy Times" doing the finale. Although a fine show, it did not get its share of patronage, and the people were not paid their money. It is too bad that the poor actors must be done this way after they put in weeks of rehearsing. jir. iom mormon, who leasea mt house to A. E. Patterson and Sheridan Breasseau, is not responsible lor this calamity, as he turned the theater over to these gentlemen. In the future actors should require a bond put up for their protection and not work for i irresponsible people who have no financial resources behind them. The Monogram A first-class vaudeville bill was re viewed here on Monday night. This house always offers something new and novel in the way of clean enter tainment.

Seek Better Schools in Caro l i n a COLUMBIA. S. C., Aug. : -(Spe tial.)—The white people ct many south Carolina communities are co tperating heartily with the black pro tie in the effort to secure better cdu rational facilities for the children of :he latter. At Johnson, S. C., a move ment is now on foot to provide a ?6,000 six-room Rosenwald school. Ihe black people have been raising binds for the purchase of a four-acre site, the Rosenwald fund will supply ?1.6Q0 toward the building, and 'He talance will be provided from state and rounty funds and by private subscrip tion. A similar enterprise has just been completed at Batesburg, where a ?4,500 school was erected by these co operating agencies, and the contract has been let for a $6,000 school at Leesville, for which provision has been made in tile same way. These arc among the most recent illustrations of the friendly and helpful relations for which the best people of both races are striving and which in ter-racial committees are doing much to foster throughout the South. To this end a strong state committee h-s been set up in each Southern state and local committees have been organized in 800 counties. A Woman or No Importance ’’ at the Vendome Thursday. Friday and Saturday of this week at the Vendome Theatre can ■ lie seen Oscar Wilde's masterpiece, “A Worna 1 of No Importance.” This pic ture is for adults only. It is a tale of a woman of no importance for her. I like mother Eve, life began in a garden —and all life ends with revelations. Her youth responded to the call of 1 love. He was her prince charming who worked his will with promises he , never kept. Her sin—the age-old one of loving not wisely but too well. She is the woman who wears a I mask like a thing that is a leper. The : tire can not purify her. The water can 1 not quench her anguish. Wednesday and Thursday, August 2 and o at the States will be shown "The ! Black Bag," six reels of thrills, mys ' tery, romance and action. A picture that will make your haid stand on end, with romance that will make ■ every man forget his troubles. On Friday and Saturday, Frank Mayo in "Afraid to Fight" will be the feature. This is a story of an ex-dough boy, the prize ring and a girl. Comedy and news, a cool theatre and a snappy or chestra will make a pleasant evening for anyone at the States.
