VOL XXVII DECEMBER 18. 1919 No. 32 MAYOR BEHRMAN HONORED A compliment quite unique in character, yet very expressive of its intention, was paid to Mayor Behrman on Sunday, when a double page of the Times-Picayune was devoted to wishing the Mayor a very Merry Christ mas. Many of these same friends repeat this compliment in this issue of our publication. These expressions of confidence in his integrity and faithfulness to the city of New Orleans, will, without a doubt be reciprocated by further services to our city. Mayor Behrman has made a record during his six teen years of service as chief executive of this great growing city. The past sixteen years stand out as a period of marked progress, a signal vic tory for his hard work. In their Christmas greetings to the Mayor his friends say: "We are proud to go on record today as hearty well-wishers of His Honor, and we subscribe ourselves to this roll of enthusiasts who believe thoroughly in his ability, who know fully well in their hearts that Mayor Martin Behr man has done more for the City of New Orleans than any other one citizen. Mr. Mayor, we wish you all the Happiness of the Yuletide Season. May you and yours be as merry on the coming Christmas Day of 1919 as we expect to be, and may you continue to enjoy the love and respect of your fellow citizens in the future years to come as you have in the past. We say this from the bottom of our hearts. Accept it, please as one of the best gifts we can offer you as citizens of this great commonwealth." WHY? AND WHY NOT?

Mr. George Arliss, character actor, than whom the English speaking stage has none greater, comes to the Tulane Theatre as the attraction for all Christmas week, in a new play, de scribed as a tense drama, entitled "Jacques Dural." The attraction is under the direction of Mr. George C. Tyler. "Jacques Duval" is an adapta tion by George S. Kaufman, dramatic editor of the New York Times, of a drama at the present moment running in Paris and Berlin. It is said to offer Mr. Arliss unlimited opportuni ties. In fact, Mr. Tyler had made ar rangements to present Mr. Arliss this season in another play, but when he read "Jacques Duval" he declared there was no other actor in America who could fittingly personate the lead ing character. The drama is powerful and cumulative, and its chief incident concerns a scientific savant who has spent years of experimentation on a serum to cure tuberculosis. *He is a man absorbed in science and the per :ction of his discovery. On the eve lf proclaiming this great discovery to t(pe world the information is secretly brought to him that his wife, a butter fly creature, is unfaithful. Her lover is a victim of the white plague. With out apparently relaxing his efforts in behalf of science, he seeks to effect a cure of the lover, with the Intent of making him well, because he cannot kill a sick man. While medical science is the super structure upon which "Jacques Duval" is built, the base is strong love inter est. The production of "Jacques Duval" has been made with great care, and the cast, including Elizabeth Risdon, who last season was the female phil anderer with William Gillette in "Dear Brutus," has the leading feminine role. Others in the cast are Mrs. Arliss, George Barr, Fernanda Eliscu, Manart Kippen, Guy Cunningham, A. Staple ton Kent, Harold Thomas, Carl An thony, William Seymour, William H. Barwald, Peter Bradford, Irving Deck ler, J. Palmer Collins, Spencer Harris and Dorothy Cheston. ORPHEUM. An actress who has attained to stellar honors in every branch of theatrical endeavor will be the head liner at the Orpheum all next week, beginning with the matinee on Mon day. She is the celebrated Evelyn Nesbit, star of the legitimate stage, vaudeville entertainer par excellence, heroine of a number of successful motion picture plays, dancer of abil ity, and now a singer who is rapidly winning national prestige with her marvellously sweet and well-trained voice. Miss Nesbit, who was last seen here in a dance revelation which was an instant and continuous success, will apear this time in her own new and exclusive song revue, especially prepared for her by that master of topical songs, Lee Davis. She will be assisted by Jimmie Dunn, and Eddie Moran will be at the piano. This will be one of the most entertaining acts and one of the most pretentiously staged offerings of the entire vaudeville season in New Orleans, and the Orpheum man agement has devoted a great deal of attention to the perfect staging of Miss Nesbit's revue, which has met with constant flattering comment by the dramatic critics all around the Orpheum Circuit of Theatres of the United States and Canada. This great program for all next week present, also, the return to vaudeville of Horace ,Wdilght and Rene Dietrich who have been serv ing throughout the war with that vast number of actors and actresses who dropped the work of their lives to entertain the men of the American Expeditionary Force. Mr. Wright and Miss Dietrich will offer songs which have been found to be very different from the ordinary run of vandeville song offerings. The clever pair will be one of the attrac tions of the program.
