True, thi is the t.econd road year for the production.. True, It waa not the New York cast, but the same scin tillating lines were Ultra, the tuneful mujic was there; in cast of principals for the most prt was adequate, the chorus liumbai were suiig well, awn though Uml organixition was a littlo shy on looks, but Memphhuwi etarving for a real musical .comedy overlooked these shortcomings and if everyone ot the big a-udience luat night tells a friend and that friend heeds, crowded houses will agHin delight Ui heart of Frank Uray at Friday afternoon's mati nee and night performances. Jack Mack is the bright particular ftar. He ia a genuine comedian. He does not report to buffoonery and slap stick methods to get over. His reading of the lines of James Montgomery's comedy, "The Aviator." are finished, not overdone and literally push into the risibilities even of tha most cat loured sense of humor even of an over worked cashier paying city bills on the 10th of tha month. Vhe situations are worked out we.t and Alack a person ality dominates every scene In which he appears. Perhaps this last state ment might be modified when speaking of the lady who pjiys opposite him. Yes. she is a blonde nn attractive blonde, with a pleasing voice though not a Oalli-Curcl, but with a pair of eyes that she must have to leave at the powerhouse to be recharged everv night from the electrifying scintillations which emanate from them. No wonder Kob ert Street (Jack Mack) in the play takes his life In til hands and at tempts and makes his first flight as an aviator without practice when she sings "If You book Inlo Her Kyes." They are the kind that, would make any of the male gender take a jump in me iaae u tney were directed at him hard enough. Her entrance Is quiet, her way of winning her road to the hearts of the audience artful, and like the play Itself, Beatrice Burroughs lor mat s ner name grows upon one until at tha finish you want the show done all over again Just to get a few more peeKS at Beatrice. Therese . Josephs as Madeline Man ners Is cast au Ingenue and aha slnas. dances, talks with piquancy and charm. She Is the real dancer of tha shaw and skips over the stage like a sprite. She also has a pair of eyes. George Phelps, as her lover, la a clever young dancer with a Zosodont (mile, whose bubbling personality ably seconds both her and Mis Burroughs In dialogue and duets In which they appear. The real male voice of the Dlece. however, is that of Raymond Ellis, who plays the part of Jules Qaillard, the French aviator. He has a semldramatlc tenor that Is pleasing, though Its res onance does not carry It quite far enough. He reads his lines well and If he is not a Frenchman Sacre Morn Dleu! he talks like one. Other principals are all well cast In eluding Arthur Cunningham, who as Sam Hoblnson, the mechanician, is the foil for much of the comedy brought out by Jack" Mack. There is also Dan Marble; who has been playing In musi cal comedies since before "The Isle of Champagne" began forming In the river of Imagination like Mud Island In the Mississippi. He helps along In the comedy and his hands can be seen In the way the show whips up with a snap at tne finish ana enas wun a bang. . Tney say chorus girls ars not being made any more that New York beau ties who used to kick over the foot lights, etc., prefer the affluence of the life of a manicurist beauty parlor dip lomat or confidante of a plutocratic chauffeur to making one and two-night stands on the road. Perhaps they are right for the only thing lacking in "Going Up" la a beauty chorus. There are a few beauties, however, , but they have a hard time In keeping some of the young ladles in Una and kicking and singing in time. The show came from Nashville Thursday. ,H was four hours late. Perhaps tney picked up a few girls at Hollow Rock Junction. Briggs, the cartoonist, hasn't - drawn yet, so far as we know, a cartoon en titled "What Does a Chorus Man Think About," but he might draw one "What Does a Manager Think About?" In the choice of chorus boys. There was one iast night who came very nearly spear ing himself In. the Jaw when trying to do the "Tickle Toe. However, he afforded great amusement and didn't trip up any of the other actors. It is an airplane show. Perhaps this young man was chosen to take the place of the airplane if It ever , gets lost with the fusllage of his ears., "Going Up" is a good show and well worth a visit. NED COURTNEY. 'The Marriage Question." The engagement of Haxel Warren at I the Lyric on next Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday in "The Marriage yuestion, her latest success written by Ralph T. Kettering and Lorln Howard, brings home an interesting point In the career oi tnis mucn-iovea ana mucn-iauaea actress who is accorded the distinction of being the most popular femlnle star of Manhattan, Hasc Warren was bom in Virginia and attended a public school. As a child she nursed the desire to play parts on the stage and as she grew to maturity through girlhood there arose within her an ambition to become a leading actress with her name In big etters upon the front of the theater. Her career has not been an easy one. Probably no actress ever mounted to fame over a rougher road. Harrassed by more apparently Insurmountable ob stacles, she started as a child enter tainer in cheap vaudeville theaters. She sang a little, danced a little, and she Is the authority for the statement that she was a -very poor entertainer. By hard and harder knocks she achieved the fame which she strlved for, that today her services are in great demand, not only for the stage but pictures as well. : 4 " . . ii Mil Kill Canteen Boxes Special Tomorrow at $4.69 Great assortment ot those boxes that are stylish, with fittingi and large mirror; several Btylea 10 choose from; brown, blue, gray and black; spe- A A hf rial sale price. . 4T.U Marabou Capes A special lot of marabou capes.
