Now comes announcement from Fox

' The set chmprlses six luxuriously
furnisheji rooms, supposed to be the
residence of an army Officer who had
seen service in many parts of the
world end who had accumulated bits
of rare bric-a-brac and pieces of rare
furniture during his travels.
This costly set was arranged for the
"Baby Grands" picture by Mr. F. G.
Schaeffer. formerly art director for
David Belasco; four years art director
for the Hippodrome, New York, and
rlso formerly connected with McKinn,
Moado and White. It ls'ono of the
most artistic sets ever constructed at
the Fox studios, and many of New
York's "Smart Set" have asked permission
to see It.

Dick Manning, with his troupe of
specialty artists, chorus of singing and

in which are featured three
big acts by members of the company.
There is a lively little skio in which all
of tho troupe are given plenty of room
to demonstrate their qualities as musical
comedy artists.
A glance at the roster of the company
reveals the names of Art McDonnell,
Mabel Lockhart, Jack Murrell,
Loretta Rita, Lew Kellner, Agnes Kcllner,
Ella Manning, and a chorus of
singing and dancing girls who sport
a lot of captivating gowr.s. The usual ,
changes of program will be offered and ,
in view of the past performances of !
