MURRAY VAUDEVILLE A vaudeville bill In which the man-' npement invites comparison with any bill offered in Dayton or Indianap olis will be offered New Year's week, nt the Murray. Roberts and Clark with Harry Sigman at the piano in an elaborate sons and dance revue will be one of the features opening to morrow matinee. Their act is termed "A Courtship in Song," and is spon sored by Dwight Pepple, the Chicago producer, who puts out nothing but acts of class, refinement and merit. Known as an experienced showman. Roy La Pearl, is scheduled to prove his right to the title "worlds greatest uerialist." While some authorities are inclined to dispute his claims, it is said that after once viewing the act any board of judges wll award LaPearl the championship. Much interest centers on he ap pearance of "Sassy" Lillian Gonne in "Merry Christmas." She will be seen as a street kiddie on Christmas eve ning. This role gives her ample op portunity for irrepressible antics for which she is famous. Pretty Miss Gonne, with her towsled hair, will sing, dance and give vent to her own variety of philosophy. She has re cently played the Orpheum circuit, with tremendous success to herself, f.ince her last appearance In this vi cinity. A romance at Carlisle Indian uni versity resulted in the wedding of Dan and Ida Blue Cloud, two full- blooded original Americans, who next week are a feature of the bill open ing tomorrow. Both were students at a celebrated Indian school. Dan was solo trom bonist of the school band and Miss Ida a performer in a pageant, when they first met. They were married shortly after their graduation and at once prepared for vaudeville, in which they are a proven success. Coming Thursday are the Primrose Pour; the Camille Trio, the Halls and Wairnan and Barry. Four shows will be given tomorrow and Monday. r SATURDAY Murray "The Cave Girl," Vaude ville: Murrette Constance Talmadge In "East Is West." Washington "The Cowboy and th-s Lady."

" 'He's got Chaplin skinned seven different ways,' he replied. "In another theatre the main title of a Telease is flashed on the screen. It says 'Harold IJoyd in Dr. Jack,' and before the opening scene is disclosed there is a round ot applause. Tbe only time Ihave witnessed such au occurence was the first night of the showing of "The Three Musketeers' when Douglas Fairbanks was there in person." Mr. Dean goes even further than that, telling of the opinion of ten people in different walks of life. ' Two preferred Chaplin, while a housewife declared that she "liked Chaplin bet ter in some ways, but in other way she didn't like him as well as Lloyd." It is a question bound to provoke interest. Anyway, Harold Lloyd will be seen all next week at the Mur rette theatre in "Dr. Jack" and then people can judge for themselves.

Name Street City State PHONOGRAPH RECORDS OF BLEATING LAMBS DECOYS FOR TIGERS (From the Kansas City Star) The leader of an African hunting ex pedition, who set out on a motor trip from Cape to Cairo, used a phonograph as a decoy for tigers. In tiger hunting it is usual to tether u lamb to a tree; its bleating attracts the tiger within reach of the hunters. Before leaving England an explorer had records made by bleating lambs, and he tried them on unsuspecting tigers of the jungle with considerable success. Record makers gained one of thei: greatest triumphs when they sueceetijf ed in obtaining satisfactory nightingale J and blackbird records. The chief diffi culty was the objection the birds evinced to the Bounds of the recording machine. The clever men got around that by setting up a dummy recording machine, in the horn of which they placed food for the birds. rians have been perfected by the International Chamber of Commerce for the establishment of courts of ar bitration for the settlement of com mercial disputes independently of governmental agencies. ICHMOND THEATRE SUNDAY MURRETTE Lloyd the screen's corn- Is Harold odv king? That ii an interesting Question and a question that. James W. Dean, prom inent synd'rate writer and motion picture critic kne-v would cause con siderable comment. In fact, Mr. Dean began the controversy by syndicating I costuming. a story through yorainent newspa Such are impressions gained by WASHINGTON A spirit of adventure in. dress is the thing that holds the-fashion su premacy of Paris. American women still lack .that disregard of current vogues that has made the French women an irresistible pioneer along hitherto untraveled paths of feminine 1-ers throughout the country and thusly started the ball to rolling. He wrote: "The barber was talking as wielded his razor. Valentino Is a great actor, he thinks, but William Farnum is greater. And who is his favorite actor of all? Harold Lloyd. Dops he think Lloyd better than Chap mun? ,'I should say, he answers. "Chaplin is always the same. Lloyd is always different.' "In a theatre a flash on the screen announced the ' eominsr of Harold Lloyd in 'Dr. Jack.' Said one man to another near me: "'111 have to see 'that. That fel- Gloria Swanson. Paramount star, fol lowing a recent trip to Europe. Called "the best dressed woman in America," Miss Swanson's comments add con siderable to the long-standing discus sion as to the pros and cons of the unbroken French control of feminine dress. "American women have a fine sense of individuality, of adaptation. They will take a fashion, change and alter it until by the time it goes its way around the United States it is some thing altogether different and often decidedly more striking than the orig inal. She will not start a new vogue until she has heard that someone high The most famous physicitns in Europe were summoned in an effort to save the life of Sarah Bernhardt, taken seriously ill while rehearsing in Paris. The noted actress suffered a relapse after refusing to rest, and although out of danger is not expected to live. Photo shows her in one of her roles at the Palace Theater. FRANK IN FARNUM Jn his latest Western screen success sro'ads" up in the social whirl has done some thing similar. "Your Parisienne, however, is not bothered by such inhibitions. If she decides she looks better without stock ings, off they go: and if others wish to follow, it is all right. The origin of Parisian styles is by no means con fined to the social elite. They may start with a stenographer or the wife of a shopkeeper. "In xmly one part of American life does one -find the Parisian flair for 'taking a chance,' for sending out a new fashion to stand or fall before the American public. Even the films, however, are but pioneers in the field of originality in dress, and undoubted ly it will be some time before the su premacy of ' Paris is seriously as sailed." ' Miss Swanson is wearing in her new Paramount picture, "The Impos sible Mrs. Bellew," which comes to the Washington theatre Sunday, an interesting assortment of the new, up-to-the-minute Parisian styles which she brought back to Hollywood direct from Paris. ' Child actors and actresses have a singular way of leaping overnight i permit. into fame. There was the case of Jackie Coogan, for example. "The! Kid" lifted him clear , up to the heights of stardom. Now comes an other baby star who bids fair to reach the high places in the not far dis tant future. Her name is Fay Mc Kenzie, the youngest member of the Ray Carroll company that filmed "When Ijove Comes" for the Film Booking Offices of America, under the auspices of which it will be shown Thursday at the Washington theatre. Fay is three years old and of ex quisite beauty. Moreover, she is al ready an actress of high skill. In "When Love Comes" she had many scenes that tax her talents to the ut most, but she comes through them all with colors flying. "I want to buy mama an automo bile like Baby Peggy did," says Fay to anybody who asks about her pro fessional ambitions. But it is probable that Fay's earn ings will not be used to carry out this purpose, since they are being placed in a trust fund to defray the expenses of her education and the re quirements of a university training, which have been planned for her by her mother as soon as her age will TKOIBI.ED WITH WEAK KIDNEYS "Have been troubled with weak kid neys since childhood," writes Mrs. G.
