(By Kraory B. Calvert.)
New York, N. Y Nov. af The eager
greed for romance which is in all nor

made the charming fairy tale of Cin

the pretty fantasy were Injected into
its stage version.
Whenever this is achieved, as it was
last Monday night at the Globe theater,
success is certain.
The name of this new vehicle in which
Cinderella rides before the public, cot

evolved from the pumpkin, is "The
Lady of the Slipper.
The particular "Lady," in this in
stance, is that clever and dainty bit of
gorgeous youth. Miss Elsie Janis.

Jules Eckert Goodman has scored

In his latest play Mr. Goodman at
tacks the problem of the betrayed "g-rL
an old theme which he approaches from
quite a new angle.
In this instance the victimized girl
rejects marriage at the hands of her
betrayer because she perceived that the
proffer comes, not from love, but a
certain sense of duty.
It was in order to test this rather
bold situation with a New York audi
ence that W. A. Brady decided to give
the play a hearing at a special mat
inee. If the audience suffered any shock
it seemed to be entirely dissipated in
a happy ending.
A decided triumph was made by Miss
Lucille Watson. And Miss Emily Stev

as good an impression, her -work show

she is now recognized as one of the

The story of the play is concerned
with a young woman who has been
taken from a maternity hospital into
the home of the sister of the man who
was responsible for her troubles. But
the sister, who is a strong warm blood

of her brother's relations with the girl
whom she has undertaken to befriend.
In the meantime the brother has be

friends. The inevitable discovery of
the true situation comes, and this af
fords the climax of the play.
Happily a really good man appears
on the scene, who is truly in love with

"forgive and forget" and thus a satisfac

The comedy scenes, especially those

While the play has several defects of
