Whenever a play has been a marked success on the stage it receives the at tention of some well known producer of pictures it is the signal for a lively interest on the part of all followers of the silent drama.

It is only a short time ago:, that Palace audiences enjoyed the artis try of this star when she played the leading role in "The Lion and the Mouse" another famous Klein play. At that time it was predicted that Alice Joyce had reached the climax of her histronic powers but as "Annie Sands" in 1 he Third Degree she surpasses her delightful and powerful "Shirley Kosemore of the jrreat financial drama. Perhaps no scene of more dramatic lensity has ever been staged in a spoken play than that showing the administer ing of the third degree and surely no such scene has ever been put on a film as the situation showing the workings of the terrible and much feared police method of securing an admission of guilt This scene and many others all of exceptional dramatic power are incor porated in the master visualization of The Third Degree to such an extent that ho picture shown at the Palace wilt excell in the eye of theatergoers this great play by Charles Klein. In all vaudeville there is no more enjoyable operatic offering than that of Mile. Dorce's Celebrities. In this offer ing 12 Grand Opera singers appear in condensed versions of" several of the most popular operas. Each opera has its separate and distinct staging and each is preceded by a short but inter esting explanation of the scene about to be sung. The voices among Mile. Dorce's Celebrities are of remarkable quality, and feeling and the entire act with its eight or more changes of set ting forms a delightful 35 minutes of opera. Week of JUNE 23rd 3 CHAS.

This act is presented in a special setting and everything about it has the stamp of vaudeville supreme. In a few songs and sayings Walter Morgan and Madge Kolter bring to the lialace a most entertaining bit of variety merchandise. This is what the regular theatergoers would term ? "nifty act." Waimn and Berry, a boy and a girl in an extensive variety of piano and vio lin numbers, and the Randow Trio of gymnastic sensations are two more acts calculated to register big with Palace audiences for th first half of the week. On Thursday, Friday and Saturday a merry musical comedy comes to head the new bill. This is billed under ihe title of "What Could Be Sweeter?" and advance reports say that the sugar bar rel has nothing on the 10 pretty .girlies appearing in its song and dance num bers. Along with the chorus, which we have already stated is the very essence of sweetness, there are several clever principals. ' Anothr big number for the last three days is the Ja Da Trio, otherwise along Broadway known as "The Syncopated Bluejackets." This act is one of fhe biggest hits of the summer vaudeville season. The manner in which these ihree sailor boys "jazz" and "rag" seems to be the very height of syncopated musical pleasure.
