Starting today an entire new show is being presented at the Plaza and if we may believe the theatre press agent it promises to be mighty good. One of Its attractions is the appear ance of the famous film star, Smil ing Billy Mason, of the Christie Comedy Company, who will be seen in person in a very neat vaudeville act with Alice Forest. Mr. Mason has just given up his screen acting in which he attained quite a success, and hopes to find fame in vaudeville. By the way, Smiling Billy is young and hand some, and what is more, unmarried, so here is a chance for the Bridge port eirls. "The Cyclone," Tom Mix's latest and best super photo-drama, has all the tempestousness and thrills one might encounter if swept along by a real cyclone. It is an excellent example -of the outdoor type of photo-drama which travels at very high speed. It is impossible not to find it most interesting. That is what Helen Rockwell, reviewer for .the Exhibitor's Trade Paper, thinks of Tom Mix's latest, so you may draw your own conclusions. The story is one of the Canadian Northwestern Mounted Police and holds the specta tor every minute it is shown. Tcignee Sextette, containing a trio of girls and a similar trio of men, all of whom possess good voices. Many other features complete the bill. EMPIRE What would you do if you found the man you loved had forgotten your very existence and was engag ed to a woman you knew to be ut terly unworthy of his love? Suppose you knew that she really loved an other and was carrying the man you loved just because he was rich, whereas you loved him for himself? Would you put him out of your heart and see him make the mistake of marrying the other? Or would you try to make the other woman worthy? Or would you try to win him for your self? These are the questions June Ca price, as Mary Ann Hubbard, asks herself in "In Walked Mary" the Al bert Capellani-Pathe feature com mencing its two day engagement at the Empire theatre. As Mary Ann is very young, innocent and inexperi enced in the ways of the world, the problem is quite a knotty one for her, but the manner in which she unties it will prove satisfactory to the old and the young who will find clean, wholesome entertainment in "In Walked Mary."

MURPHY and PRIMROSE SHIMON WEST END Not a few people in the United States have read the very thrilling story, "The Fear Market" written b Princess Troubetzkoy, and not re called to mind a similar story which occupied the most prominent position on the front page of tne daily press, throughout the country, for many weeks. It deals with a vicious scandal sheet whose editor is a mystery and im possible to discover. A society girl. Sylvia Stone (Alice Brady), an eye witness to the act of self-destruction committed by her friend. Mrs. Hill on account of the publication of a libelous story in this Blackmailing pa per, is determined to run down and trap the 'fox" in his lair and bring him to justice, not only to avenge the death of her friend but for self protection, being troubled of mind lest an innocent affair which she was a party of might be made public there by doing her an injustice and injury. Alice Brady's portrayal of Sylvia Stone is so genuine that it places her in the first rank of realistic screen artistes and her emotional work proves her versatility beyond a per adventure of doubt. It will be shown tonight at1 the West End theatre. j At the Sign of the Fotoplay W rnrtTI ATT W Kearns' Jazz Band ADMISSION: Including War Tax, . . . 40c TODAY W LAST DAY SHOWING I JUNE CAPRICE d J "In Walked Mary" 4 W LAST DAY SHOWING I First Episode of j f 'DARE DEVIL JACK' 9 Featuring i IJACK DEMPSEY POLI'S. Eight years of Poli quality is summed up in the offering for the last half of the week which is to include unrivaled photoplay and vaudeville features of entertainment. Charles Ray in "Alarm-Clock Andy" goes the gamut of the Ray talent. In no other picture is he seen so well as in this offering which de picts him as a salesman who cannot sell. Then a change and oh! what a difference. There will be five reels of this delightful episode that brings many talented actors before the vision of Poli patrons. Likewise the headlining act upon the stage brings no less a musical comedy star than George Leonard, who heads a cast of 12 delightfully comely young women, arrayed in the most sumptuous of the season's styles. Herman Becker in presenting "Mr. Chaser' has afforded both youth, beauty, music and comedy. The Francetti Sisters, youthful ex ponents of lithe and active balancing, will give a delightful and Venus-like presentation of their bodily grace. Kelly and Green, premier artists in the comic line, will offer their original and latest laughing-hit, "In Havan." Sabbott and Brooks in a special dance diversion entitled "You Want to Know," will enlighten in the terp sichorean art, and as a special added attraction Corine Tilton, versatile character impersonator, will offer her latest, "The Chatterbox Doll." The latest Pathe News and other screen features will afford the latest grasp on American and European happenings.

Others Follow On Monday, March 15, 1920, we made a new move in Bridgeport banking circles and began the practice of keeping our bank open continuously on Mondays from 9 a. m. 'till 8 p. m. This added three hours to our Monday bankin day, thus allowing our customers the extra time (from 3 to 6 p. m.) to transact business. Although the extra hours were not generally known, yet on that day one hundred and forty-two customers were served between the hours of 3 and 6. It is plainly evident that the public appreciate the increased service. We invite the public to use those in creased hours more freely every Monday. Service is the motto of THE CITY SAVINGS BANK. That's what it was established for. That's why it is big and successful. In service to the public we shall con tinue to be pioneers.
