Four Acts of Vaudeville. i
The Hippodrome today enters upon
a week which bids fair to outshine any
previous like period in the history 01 ,
the-theatre. Forgetting for -.nc moment
the big attraction booked f .r tiic '
last'hialf of the week it becomes aepar-:
Ient that four big time vaudeville acts
is also some show. Particular.;.* will .
thltf be proved when the calibre of the
artists engaged becomes known to Hip-;
podrome patrons. The four acts secured
are Hughes and LaKsi j. who !
head the list in a big novelty specialty
act called "Wee at the Circus.' Kiiza-'
beth Miller is the single performer in.
a singing and talking specialty. Otilfin
and Gapman are a comedy p:.->- with

Italy's War V.'ork on Screen.
T^he Italian war pictures. "Tic Ital- i
tan. Battlefront." officially s met toned
by the Italian General Staff, wnii-b will .
be shown at the Grand Theatre. !kginning-today.
contain many less ns for
America, particularly the necessity for
perfect co-ordination between the
American people and the Allied naHons.
These pictnres. by far the mo.-' realistic
and best yet produced im the
European struggle, will tea'.- the
American public just what scientific
warfare of the. present day.<s. With
Ilte_proper realisation of what Entente
Allies have to contend, ev -.y one
wai be induced, to "do his bit." This
is the most effecUve.way to dercct the
Kaiser and Prnssian militarism.
Americans need more than the s.V-diers
r>ri the '-field. They must have the .
hearty co-operation of those rt home:
snd these pictures of the Italian battleireiil
will aid materially in st; uulat- ;
:ng such harmony of spirit and action.

?- The
Big Show the Kipp'a Getting.
When Nat Danzig, a comedian who i
has appeared at theatres ir. .his city j
at various times, learned that ins "old ;
friend" Fisher had secured Razzie i
Dazzle for tiie Hippodrome, he stepped .
out of his way to toil Manager Fisher;
that from personal observation he is :
qualified to say that the 3furrr.y ? I
tnhv attraction is a "corker'' o-i-l de-'
clares that, "it will be a dciign'tu. sur- \
prise to Fairmont. Danzig -.yus in i
Parkersburg last week while Razzie |
Dazzle had that town by the ears and J
himself went to see the show three ;
rimes. "It was so good." he says,"
"that 1 just couldn't get enoug*. or it." ;
This comedian's opinion talli-j - exact-J
It with that of everyone who > ? .- seen :
the show at either Wheeling or Union-1
town, or at some other place. The >
opinion that it is an extraordinarily!
good show is based 011 the co'-para |
tive quality of the one-dollar and nigh- j
er priced musical comedies of similar I
size and character. As a mutter or ;
fact the organization is in strobars;
somewhat larger than tiros: of the one ;
night shows which have been in this,
cify this season.
It also has the usual twenty or so '
:.org numbers, has several specialty
acts, among which is the Tabasco uc
tettc. on Apache dance, three saxa
phone artists and nine principal.-, eacli
of whom has a "oil" of some sen that
v.ill niaae the program decidedly more
varied than many ot'-tbc seasonmust
cal shows.
Anticipating tr.c crowds tltsf wiit
take advantage of the opporc.i.vy of
seeing this show at half price, arrange

the -week for anj- performance. The.
first 'evening performance will begin !
a half hoar earlier than usual which)
will gire suburban patrons and. those ;
obliged to use the interarbsii itries j
ample time to set cars to any ahd all!
points. To avoid " the rush, which is i
indicated by the large amount of talk j
heard on all sides, the management\
advises all patrons Iiriac in th t cit7 J
to take advantage of the afternoon
shows or the last night performance
on any of the three days. It war the j
experience with "My Honolulu Girl" j
that many who came to the theaue for <
the first evening performance were i
obilged to wait until the second snow,
which in many instances was fraught!
with much inconvenience. Over four [
thousand people attended the ".'lono-,
lulu Giri" show and the limited capac-j
iiy of the theatre makes it necessary f
to attempt some sort of a distribution f
of the audiences so that there will be !
no disappointments. It is altogether |
probable that the crowds here will ex-;
ceed the "Honolulu'' gatherings as the I
..i mnrh tnrcer one and of a '

popular form of amusement all over !

It will be Impossible to print an ad-'
vance program here, but in use c? the ;

printed in a day or so the fuH program !
will appear which will give au ade- I
nuate idea of the stupendousiicss or j

Absorbing Story of Timely Interest. !
Although the war plays a iarg? part j
in the story of "Who Goes here'' ;
which is the Dixie feature for today, j
it is not the paramount issue r.f the j
plot, but instead provides an onantpres- j
ent background, for a love t lexne. j
Xervyn Guild, an American of Belgian j
parentage, is trapped in Belgium at j
the outbreak of the war. The i.eas-;
ants, at the time the story stari-r. are j
suffering front atrocities at the hands 1
of the invading Germans. Guiiti is the {
next to be shot, when the general ;
hears that he is an American and stays j
his execution. Calling him to the head- !
quarters, the general threatens death I
if the young man will not agree to go I
to London and bring back to Belgium i
a certain giri. whom be says is his i
daughter. The American agrees and. .
the balance of the picture is concerned ;
with the return trip of the pair and the ,
culmination of the Iov? affair, which
started almost at sight. There art a

talent. These two with pradically
the entire weight of the prod action
on their shoulders, carry it oft to exceilent
advantage. The minor roles
are played well. The direction is
marked with uninterrupted continuity,,
atmosphere, good taste in the m'erioi '
settings and pleasing exteriors.
Story of Morbid Character.
I>offiestic difficulties hare a morbid
fascination for a'.l onlookers. In "The
Moth." at the Princess." we see a
worthless husband demand cicie ana
more xqpney from his wife, with which
he maintains a second establishment.
We next see him advising the laity in
charge to marry some rich man bet
not to drop their relations, and rinally
we see suicides, blackmail and illicit
love making. And so the morbidness
loses its fascination and just naturally
turns to disgust. j
"The Moth" first shows a romantic i
young girl married off before she
reaches the age of discretion to a society
bounder. The story then follows
their married life through a succession
of episodes that play upon two of the
spectators* emotions ? pity, to- the
wife, and hate for the husband and his 1
friends. * 1
The thoroughly able acting of the ,
company of players, who have been i
well chosen, brings out every smgle ;
point in the story to its full value. In-!
dividually they contribute pe. form-!
ances that are effective. Norma Tal- j
rradge. the star, is excellent and the :
great number of attractive gowns thai j
she wears will appeal to the feminine j
portion of the audience. In directing !
the picture Edward Jose carries out his !
reputation for masterful work. He has i
carefully developed the plot, establish- i
ed atmosphere and his settings are.
