WDAT'S GOING ON IN THE WORLD
OF THEATRES AND AMUSEMENT
It's a case of ail-aboard for Joyland
at the Flaza the fore part of the week
for every feature on the vaudeville
bill is overlooking with merit and
The Petticoat Minstrels, a twen
tieth century act in every sense of
the word and exceeding the speed
limit from the rise to the fall of the
curtain, heads the bill, with a resume
of all the latest fads and follies in
minstrelsy and-all girls in the cast.
Eight of them, pretty, vivacious, full
of "pep" and stuffed with voice go
through the regular routine of the
minstrel offering and add novelty af
ter novelty in a manner that brings
them a veritable storm of applause at
x And we must take our hats off to
Miller and Masters, a duo of male
dancers, soft shoe and eccentric steps
being their specialty, for they are the
cleverest we've seen in these parts in
years. Yesterday's crowds appreciat
ed the fact and they let Miller and
Masters know it.
The Helene Trio went through a
series of gymnastic and aerial feats
that kept the crowd holding its
breath and gasping alternatively.
Their finishing stunt sent our heart
flying into our mouth.
Bennington and Scott, the male
member of the team having only one
leg, put on a singing and dancing
number that was positively wonder
ful. If most people with two legs
could dance or kick half as good as
this onelegged wonder Aiey'd be look
ing for Eva Tanguay's salary and his
pretty little partner is very graceful
and clever also.
"The Answer," a seven-act story of
socialism with Alma Reubens in the
stellar role is an attraction of unusual
merit and there's something about it
that sends you out of the theatre with
its theme on your mind.
"Salmon hshing in New Bruns
wick" created much interest and
Rita Marie's orchestra is the talk of
Poli audiences today. It is the best
organization of exclusive women talent
that has appeared in this city for a
season. Immense from start to finish
in personnel, costume and in selections
of music, the production is perfect.
The screen attraction of the day in
Bridgeport is "The Eagle's Eye'" the
fifth episode of which now is being
shown at Poll's. This sensational ex
pose of the Kaiser's underhand spy
system in America, and the terrible
devastation that it worked, as well as
the official German representatives, is
vividly told in pictorial form through
information given first hand by Chief
William J. Flynn. former head of U.
S. Secret Service.
Bobbie Nelson & Company offer a
whirlwind talking act, introducing the

Ball Brothers & Company, a clever!

Universal screen news, shows mili
tary bits from every country at war
with the Allies and also many novel
sights and senes in Amercia.
Of all - the successes which have
been presented by (Manager George
Arvine at the (Lyric theatre this sea
son it is safe to say that none caused
greater comment, created the furor
or brought tmt the wonderful aibility
and versatility of the Poli Players to
such an extent as "Romance," Doris
Keane's gripping drama, which is (be
ing presented at the popular play
house this week.
The plot of the play is of the most
original character and kiaring in its
conception, for it brings the church
and the hectic life of a certain kind
of stage woman together in a web of
romance and adventure in a manner
tllat causes even the most blase audi
ence to sit on the edge of the seats
in anticipation of the hundreds vt sit
nations which make this play unique
among modern dramas.
Needless to say the lady whose life
borders on the scarlet, is portrayed
by Warda Howard, who as "Mar-
gherita Cavallina," the Italian opera
singer and a somewhat shady mem
ber of the nobility, becomes the ob
ject of Bishop Tom Armstrong's af
fections. The role of the bishop is
admirably interpreted toy Dudley
Ayres, and he plays the part with
The story is full of surprises from
rise to fall of curtain. At no time
until the very end is any one in the
audience sure of what ending the
play will have and as a -consequence
the audience is kept in a state of sus
pense as one situation pr anti-climax
is sprung in rapid succession.
The big part of the action of the
play falls upon the shoulders of Dud
ley Ayres and Warda Howard, but
the entire company give them such
excellent support in practically every
situation throughout the play that too
much praise could not -be given them
for the exceedingly able manner in
which the ideas of the author are

BETTER THAN CALOMEL
Thousands Have Discovered Dr.
Edwards' Olive Tablets are
a Harmless Substitute.
Dr. Edwards Olive Tablets the substi
tute for calomel are a mild but sure
laxative, and their effect an the liver is
almost instantaneous. They are the result
of Dr. Edwards' determination not to treat
liver and bowel complaints with calomel.
His efforts to banish it brought out these
little olive-colored tablets. I
These pleasant little tablets do the good
that calomel does, but have no bad after
effects. They don't Injure the teeth like
strong liquids or calomel. They take hold
- of the trouble and quickly correct it Why
cure the liver at the expense of the teeth?
Calomel sometimes plays havoc with the
gums. So do strong liquids. It is best not
to take calomel, but to let Dr. Edwards'
Olive Tablets take its place.
Most headaches, "dullness" and that
lazy feeling come from constipation and
, a disordered liver. Take Dr. Edwards'
v Olive Tablets when you feel "loggy" and
"heavy." Note how they "dear" clouded
brain and how they "perk, up" the spirit
