OF THEATRES AND AMUSEMENT
Poll's
There is a warlike showing to the
film side of the Poll vaudeville and
photoplay offering which began yes
terday. Hearst-Pathe News, the of
ficial organ of all events on the west
ern front shows clearly the Third Di
vision coming from the trenches and
passing the veteran officials In re
view. It also shows official battle
scenes In the Belgian army which is
still intact and fighting valiently to
protect Liberty of all nations. The
scenes are thrilling and show real ac
tion in and out of the trenches.
DeLeon and Davles, the well known
stars of musical comedy appeared in
a new and clever act with its origina
tion in France. An ambulance from
America finds the godmother of the
American boys. An international
event in costume and in song and
artistic dance reproduction follows.
Frank LaReine, the electrical wiz
ard, with a big company of beautiful
and clever assistants aid in keeping
the fun and the educational features
of this big act at height.
Priscilla Deans is seen In "The Two
Souled "Woman," an adaptation of
"The White Cat" In novel form. She
is ably sffsisted by such stars as Jo
seph Gerard, Ashton Dearholt and
Evelyn Selbie. The plot has lots of
action and some acute climaxes.
Lalng and Green, "The Old Timers,"
scored heavily In applause because of
their artful singing. They have a
repertoire of the latest and most mod
ern songs and adaptations.
Allen and. Clark, two musical boys,
offer a diversity of harmony upon
new and novel instruments.
Bessie LaCount, chraming come
dienne, offers a different kind of impersonation.
LYRIC
THREE DANCES THIS WEEK
There will be three dances this Week
.at Fairfield Beach Dancing pavilion,
Wednesday, Friday and Saturday
evenings. These dances have been
very popular during the season and
have been attended foy large gather
ings of young people. Murray's excel
lent orchestra furnishes good music
and the dancing floor is one of the
I best In this section. The pavilion is
j at the edge of the wharf, swept by the
l cooling breezes from the Sound and
there Is a wide porch from which the
! bathers may be weAched. Automo-
biles leave Fairfield avenue and Broad
'street every few minutes, running di
rect to the door.

McNally, Dennis and DeWolf head
ed the bill at the Plaza last evening
and scored an unconditional victory.
Two men and a very charming young
lady comprise the trio and they open
their act with a little touch of novel
ty that comes in well when they go
in for their dancing and acrobatic
dancing maneuvers.
Al Tyler had everything his own
way for he had the goods and he
knew how to put them over. Al does
a tramp character and does it splen
didly. His "gags" are right off the
fire and the way he puts them over,
without resorting to the waitlng-for-laughs
"stalling" is Immense.
The Abisinia Three are colored
folks who can sing, dance and play
the banjo In addition to keeping up
a constant play for laughs from the
risa to the fall of the curtain.
Hazel Moran is a pletty little miss
who can handle a lariat (even the
big 85 ft. one that so many of the
gallant cowboys used to prioe tnem
selves on) in a manner that makes
one feel that you'd as soon not get
into an argument with the deceiving
ly slender and pretty young woman.
The Allied War Review was espe
cially Interesting In last evening's in
stallment for the scenes were very
clear and there was symmetry in the
production of them.
Anna Nilson anad Franklyn Farnum
are co-starred in Metro's latest pro
duction which has a most peculiar
plot that keeps you enthralled from
start to finish. The title of the pic
ture Is "In Judgment Of" and it's
worth one's while to eee it.
A Lyons-Moran comedy that was
really laughable completed the at
tractions.
Have you heard the good news?
No? The new Lyric theatre opens
next week Monday, Labor Day, and
with one of the very best war plays
that Bridgeport has ever seen. "Lilac
Time," the play that helped to make
Jane Cowl famous, will be the opening
production and there are few produc
tions better fitted for reopening a
playhouse with a reputation of such
excellence as has come to the Lyric
during the last season. This season,
according to Manager George Arvine,
to whom full credit is due, not only
will the house be in better condition
than ever, but an entirely new .com
pany of players will greet the audi
ences and a list of productions that
will please the most fastidious has
been arranged for.
The new company is scheduled to
arrive on Thursday, when the first re
hearsal will begin, but as every mem
ber is a finished artist no difficulties
are anticipated. Manager Arvine has
spent both time and money during the
summer months gathering this excel
lent aggregation of actors and ac
tresses about him and under his direc
tion the success of the Lyric is an as
sured fact. Judging from the i repu
tations borne by the members of the
company already selected Bridgeport
is in for a genuine treat such as has
never been given a gathering of
pleasureseekers in any theatre.
"Lilac Time" is one of the strongest
war plays, without depicting any of
the horrors of the battles themselves,
on the American stage today. The
story is woven about an English cap
tain and a pretty French girl who falls
in love. They plight their troth In
Lilac Time but by the time this flower
blooms again a year later she has
received news of his death In battle.
The story ends as she stands in the
doorway swinging her baby's cap
shouting "Vive La France" as her hus
band's regiment marches by. A more
appropriate production for opening
this wonderful playhouse would -be
hard to find and Manager Arvine is
ustly proud of the achievement.
The box office will be open daily this
week from 10 a. m. until 6 p. m.,
both for the advance sale of tickets
and reservations.

EMPIRE
The old problem of divorce, the
troubles of men who are forced away
from their homes by wives gone to
seed, to seek the love of other women
these are a few of the great social
questions which are Interestingly han
dled by Cecil D. De Mille in his special
Artcraft production of "OH Wives foi
New," which is presented at the Em
pire theatre today.
This photoplay is based upon the
novel by the late David Graham Phil
lips, and the picturlzation is the work
of Jeanie Macpherson, author of many
problems outlined above, the stor
graphically reveals the efforts of a
woman who is naturally slothful to re
tain her husband for the sake of pop
ular opinion, the conflicting emotions
that arise when a man is confronted
by what the world calls duty and what
his heart tells him is living a lie
these are some of the elements In this
remarkable picture.
The story is epochal, hut it is at the
same time world-old. Society and its
foibles, the more intimate side of mar
ital life, the probing of hearts all is
contained in this remarkable motion
picture drama. Many screen players
of prominence interpret the various
roles.

sector would force a precipitate re
treat of those armies, already gravely
threatened in the Sank.
The French have crossed the Sols-
sons-Chauny railway to the east of
Bagneux.
Fresnoy-le-Roye, three miles north
of Roye, and St. Mardy, a mile and
a half southwest of Roye, were cap
tured by the French yesterday In a
resumption of their attacks in Pi
cardy, the War Office announced to
night. Six hundred prisoners were taken
in sharp local fighting on both sides
of the Avre, the French pushing on
despite strong German resistance.
British troops yesterday attacked
south of the Scarpe and made swift
progress, capturing Monchy-le-Preux,
an extremely difficult position, and
Guemappe. Both places figured
prominently in the hardest fighting
last April and May.
Other British units, further south,
carried Montauban, thus materially
extending their lines east of Albert.
Welsh troops captured Mametz Wood
yesterday, a singular triumph for
them, for it was frt the same wood
that Welsh units suffered severe cas
ualties exactly two years ago.
General Mangin continues thrust
ing toward the SoiSsons-Chauny high
road between the Oise and the Aisne
east of Bagneux. The French have
reached Bonn and Crecy-au-Mont,
and are in possession of the narrow
gauge rail running through Chavigny.
Every inch of ground captured here
adds to the peril of the Crown
Prince's position south of the Che-mln-des-Dames,
as not only the Ger
man line on the Vesle, but that on the
Aisne as well, is threatened with Im
minent collapse.
The new French typ of tanks is
playing a most Important part in
these operartions, there being no
streams to Imped them, and the coun
try here being open and rolling. Ow
ing to the rapidity of the French ad
vance, Krupp fleld-guns are being
