POIXS.
Doctors as a rule are pretty eeri
ous folka! Especially -when-you meet
them professionally. Nevertheless, a
large part of the laughs In "Sick
Abed," Wallace Keld's picture at the
Poll theater, are furnished by two
medicos.. As a matter of fact, they
are quack doctors and know little
more about doctoring than they do
about plumbing.
The feature vaudeville attraction
for the three days commencing today
is Eleanor Pierce presenting "A
Dance Frolic," staged by Ivan Bank
oft. The company includes Gil
Squires and Jerry Benson. ,
, As a special attraction for the boys
of the American Legion, Manager
Saunders has secured for the next
three days the or rv ices of Bessie

A bill of unusual excellence Is
promtaed by the Plaza theatre man
agement for tho last three days of
the week starting today. The great
H. H. Van loan story, 'Three Gold
Coins," featuring Tom Mix, is the
stellar attraction and if the reviews
received on the feature may bo taken
as any criterion. It is a corkfcig good
drama and. shows Tom Mix at his
daredevilish best. It is most inter
eating from star to finish and. is the
first of vhis Fox do Luxe series.

numbers as "My Gypsy Sweetheart"

MUST PREPARE
HOUSING FOR
UNDERWOOD HELP
With the announcement made yes
terday that the Underwood plant
would employ , about 2,000 persons
after it had got under way in this
city and people on the streets and
other places giving It a lot of talk
last night the chief concern expressed
was whether housing conditions of
the city would be adequate to pro
vide homes for workers that come
here from out of town. It is expect
ed that the majority of the working
force that will be installed in the new
concern will be local people but a
certain amount will be brought here
from Hartford to get things in run
ning order. (
After a conference wi Stanley H.
Bullard late yesterday 'afternoon it
was announced by the Underwood of
ficials that partial operation at the
plant would begin the first of next
month. By that time it is expected
that alterations to the building will
have been completed and the Bullard
office force which is still In the build
ing will have moved to the new Bul
lard plant in Fairfield.
A number of former employes of
the Tost Typewriter Works which re
cently moved from this city to Flush
ing, Long Island, greeted the an
nouncement that the Underwood
Company would come here with joy
as they see a chance to return to
work at the various lines of trade
connected with the manufacture of
typewriters. When the Tost plant
moved? to Long Island after the
Graphophone Company had bought
the property of that factory on Rail
road avenue quite a few of the Tost
employes moved to Flushing with the
Tost concern but later returned when
they became dissatisfied with condi
tions as they existed in the Long
Island factory, according to a num
ber of them seen last night by .a
Times representative.

UPPER SILESIA
IN STATE OF SEIGE
Berlin, Aug. 18 The allied com
mission has declared an intensified
state of siege at Kattowitz, Upper
Silesia, as a result of clashes between
civilians and French troops in which
2 7 persons were killed.
The commission has forbidden the
publication of five newspapers in Up
per Silesia for a week.
the Park theatre, Thursday, Friday
and Saturday, with the customary
matinees. The production is known
as Sam Howe's Jollities of 1920, and
is the creation pf that versatile and
original writer, Addison Burkhart.
Mr. Burkhaa-t calls his" effusion a
Revusical Fable in two acts and ten
scenes. The locale covers a lot of
territory showing various scenes in
ana about New Tork and bubbling
over with original features, surprises,
effects, innovations and ideas. 1 In
fact, it marks the wpward trend in
modern burlesque, an achievement
which has been the aim of Mr. Howe
since the advent into this particular
field of endeavor. Besides supplying
cast second to none Mr. Howe
brings forward a trio of funmakers,
comedians and laugh-getters seldom
mustered in one particular aggrega
tion. We refer to Cliff Bragdon,
Sammy Howard and Helen Tarr, oth
ers who contribute to the success of
the production are Norma Barry,
Helen Rikhoff, Caroline Ross, Lillian
Norwood, Harold Carr, Frank Malla
han, William F. Collins,, the Synco
Melody orchestra' and twenty-four
charming and vivacious chorus ladies.
Musio of the lilting kind, dashing
and sylph-like maidens who have
been endowed by nature with grace,
charm and rhythm, are conspicuous
in the production. It is described as
a different sort of show built on new
lines and reeking with novelty, or
iginality and precedence over its com
petitors.
