Phone 64 You Need Insurance You Need Insurance Society MRS. BERRYHILL. PHONE 103 OH MO. Mr. Clyde Fiteh lias said there are no matinee girls these days. The matinee girl as she was is extinct. I agree with him. The matinee girl as she was is certainly extinct, but in her place has grown another girl with a broader grasp of tilings theatrical. Her stage world is not so heroic now, but contains ideas of the general utility of the make-up box that is really human. She under stands that leading men are not ravish ing gods to be gushed over, written to, flattered and admired for personal and physiognomic reasons. Instead of buy ing her favorite's photograph for fifteen cent, sticking it in her dressing table mirror where she may rhapsodize over temperamental aspect daily, she only studies him from her orchestra or bal cony chair, because she understands this footlight part of him is the only part that belongs to her. She under stands that he is decidedly a human be ing who lives in a prosaic residence, is in all probability married and the father of a happy family; that he eats, walks, sleeps, reads, has his joys, sorrows, his flesh and blood relatives much after the manner of other mortals. I lived in Los Angeles in the neighborhood of a leading stock actor. He was a very pleasant, shy man, and when he wasn't studying some new role or at his theatre working like a bow-wow, he was in his back yard at home, in his shirt sleeves, fussing over a coop full of Buff Orping tons he was raising for the delectation of the chicken show devotees. I do not mean that the matinee girl lias disappeared entirely. I mean that she has been added to, improved on, is becoming more analytical perhaps, but is brighter, sweeter, cleverer. I am as confident that there are as many mati nee men in Memphis as maids. That is, one will find as many men at an afternoon show as women. In Nash ville you maybe able to spot them also, but they talk in low interested tones throughout the overture getting there early for the purpose and perform- .auf. of trieonometrv. football, and "Red" Taylor, so I've heard. In St Louis they go to see the baseball game I have never ascertained how they do in Chattanooga, but reckoning from the fact of the "Still there on the hillside's being still," or all but, I suppose the houses are drawing Larger male crowds. The matinee man of Memphis will tell you they are there to wait for their train. In fact there seems to be a gen eral male mistake that Memphis theatre buildings are union stations, but that is neither here nor there a few of these belated travelers can and will discuss the histrionic method of the leading lady and ingenue with as great gusto as do the ladies in the dress circle with the chocolate tins. The amusement side of the actor is the one we like. We are always car ing for people on account of their par ticular brand of doing things, and if they are trying to please us, how sweet the sound. They may instruct us in the way we should theatrically trend, may elevate us, unbeknown for how touchy we do get when our morals are brought into the conversation but they must and shall please us. Are we forced to pay fifty cents a head on up for the distinct privilege of being displeased. Nay. We matinee children must be pleased. The majority will be amused. Take it as you will George Cohan, Shakespeare, Moving Pictures, Ibsen we each have our crave and our favor ite brand of amusement. , Lillian Russell has been grossly ma ligned when she is accounted the most married person on the stage. Lionel Lawrence holds that particular laurel wreath, I believe, and DeWolf Hopper, president of New York's Alimony Club, runs him a close second with his four divorces. Nat Goodwin, also, has been married once more than Lillian Russell, His first wife, Ida Medee, is very well known to Memphis theatregoers, her last appearance in that city being with summer opera at the Lyceum several seasons ago. Miss Russell 's second hus band, the English composer, Solomon, is the father of Claire Romaine, the vaudeville headliner, billed in this coun try as "London's, Tet Boy." Her last husband, John Chatterton, or Signor Perugi as he he is written on the opera programmes, is the father ot Dorothy Russell, Lillian Russell's only child. I am glad Frank cox has taken charge of the Lyric not that its past manager shirked his duty. Mr. Clark gave us good things. But it is a great deal more to our liking to have the business build ers of the town staying at home, in stead of whizing over the country sell ing Sugar Glen Molasses. Both the Cox brothers are interested in the Lyric and some great shows may be expected. The interior of the house is undergoing a complete change, and the electrician is working overtime to throw more light on the subject. v This reminds me that Mr. Reynolds, of the Reynolds Opera House, should certainly be complimented on the fine shows he is bringing in. His bookings of musical comedy are clean and bright. There is no cheapness or vulgarity about them, and the only thing to be regretted is that the matinees are so few and far between. With blizzards in the North and West that shriek and freeze and rage, With earthquakes quaking Europe and the Carrie nation stage, With Prohibition Memphis, and the same Kentucky too, What in the name of goodness are we going to do ado? Inaugural Reception. Gov. and Mrs. Malcolm R. Patter son's inaugural reception at the Gov ernor's Mansion is an event of much social interest, and it is given in honor of the Judges of the Supreme Court and their wives, the members of the Legis lature and their wives and' the State of- fieials and their wives. The inauguration of Gov. Patterson for his second term as the Chief Exec ! of Tennessee in the hall of the House of Representatives was also an event of social interest, and an interest ing feature was the presence of the wife of the State's Chief Executive and of Miss Sara Patterson; Gov. Peterson's school-girl daughter. Since her marriage to Gov. Patterson a- little over a year ago, Mrs. Patterson has won many warm friends and ad mirers, and she has worn with becom ing grace the honor, of her official po sition, for wh jch her charm of manner and tact so well fit her. Sho was very handsome in a tailored suit of white cloth, with a white net blouse, coral or naments and a large black velvet plumed hat. -. Miss Sara Patterson was attractive in a girlish suit of gray cloth, with a black vrkot lint trimmed with pale blue plumes. . Dr. and Mrs. Sterling F. Foster, of Birmingham, were among the out-of-town guests who came for the occasion and aro visiting at the mansion. Mrs. Foster is Gov. Patterson's sister, and Dr. Fostor officiated at the marriage of Gov. and Mrs. Patterson. Mrs. Patter son's uncle, Mr. Thomas Nelson Jones, of Columbia, was also with the Gov ernor's family party. The reception at the Mansion will be characterized by beauty of plan and the dignity suitable to the occasion. No formal invitations were issued, but sev eral hundred guests will be present, and an orchestra will furnish inspiring mu sic. The reception rooms are effective ly decorated for the occasion, with palms, ferns and stands of flowers, pink roses aiit carnations predominating. The guests are received by. Gov. and Mrs. Tatterson in the green and gold drawing room, and in the dining room the pink and green color note featured is very effective with the .rich Flemish oak furniture. A handsome lace cover is used on the table, which has a cen tral plaque of pink roses, and coffee and sandwiches are dispensed. Mrs. Tatterson wears a pale blue cloth reception toilette,! with a lace yoke and touches of gold and lavender. Miss Patterson wears "a pale pink messaline, lace trimmed. Nashville Banner.
