"Why?" I asked ingenuously, aU though, womanlike my pulses were leaping at my husband's evidently enuine irritation at the girl whom I so disliked. "So that I could stand at one end of a good hickory switch with her at the other nd give her the tan- : ning she needs. Of all the fool Stunts this is the limitl" "I thought yotl liked sn occasional , evening in a cabaret?" I said de murely, deliberately feeding his ill humor. I knew 1 was being-cattish, but I felt that I could listen to" many more strictures upon Rita Brown without satiety. What Dicky Declared. " "So I do," Dfcky retorted, "but there's a time for all things, as I've heard somewhere, Shakespeare or 5 scriptureanyway it's true. Here's one of the most perfect spring days you could find, with a moonlight evening coming on I'll bet it will be plenty warm enough . to sit on that veranda and watch the moon over the lake through the apple blos soms, and nothing will, do that . blasted cat but a trip to this cafe of all places. Any cafe would be bad enough . on a night like this, but 'The Sand Pile'l" He paused as if he could think of no words strong enough to express his disgust I slipped in another query. i "Is it so bad, then?" He turned on me angrily. -' "What are you trying to do? Kid me? I'm not worrying about the wickedness of the thing in deed, if It were clever and wicked there might be some sense in going there if it were in the winter time, or if we were stranded in an apart ment or a hotel, and had no place like this to get Jo. But of iall stupid, uninteresting places on the face of the inhabited globe that cafe is the worst ' ' "Two hat boys from one of the most aggravating restaurants as to price and service in all New York--and that's going some-got so much money planted in their jeans that The Play's A Breezy Review of New York Stage Written Especially for Sunday Theatrical Pages.. By ZAYDA GLOVER; New York, June 13.Musical Com-; edy easily occupies first place as the favorite diversion of the Metropol itan . season now approaching the "sere, and yellow," Even the "lin gerie farce popular and mush room as it has become must yield Ao the rawing "power of the more refined musical show. Melodrama has had some vogue. So has polite comedy. Put for continuous draw ing power, for sheer power to fur nish entertainment, for ability to thoroughly satisfy all audiences, the " new style musical comedy has 'un questionably established itself in the premier position. Nor is the reason far to seek. The mood of American audiences for the past year has been exceptional. It has ,ruri strongly to the lighter kind of show. Playgoers hae demand ed amusement, pleasant diversions, laughter. They have not cared except in a few and marked instan ces to witness performances in which their feelings have been ruf fled or their emotions harried. Un doubtedly this, has been the result of the reaction from the stress and grief of war. ' Oddly enough' the soldier boys re turning from the . front in France have had much to do"in moulding the season's theatrical character. A veteran manager estimated the other day that at least 35,000 men in kha ki attend New York theaters week ly, and .these men are almost unani mous in their demand for the light production. 4 "Give me a show full of good laughs," is their 'cry to the box of fices. v7;'''7-' ; : . v-" 7" .

It is replete with turilful airs, -pretty scenery, nimble girls, amusing situations and best of all, Georgie O'Ramey's make-up as the broad comedienne. Few actresses, especially as pretty as' Miss O'Ram ey is,; would have the courage to make up as die acme of homeliness, as Miss ; O'Ramey does. Fewer stitl have the ability to depict with as much -finesse the bibulous maid, Susie from Sioux City. It would be easy for her to overstep the bounds of propriety, but despite the uncer tainties in her feat she manages to restrain them from offense. She kisses lavishly, but wholesomely. She talks unctuously and laughs in toxicatingly. One gets from Miss O'Ramey s performance the kind of refined enjoyment that bespeaks the real comedienne. . ; Juljan Mitchell, the well-known stage director, lias been signed by Oliver Morosco to stage three mus ical productions for next season. Mr. Mitchell is busy on the first one, entitled, "Wanted, A Thrill," the book of which will be written by Glen McDonough with music by Aiirea uooaman Mattnews.

It has all the bad things the New York places have without one of the redeeming features the city propri they're asleep. The food is bad, the' drinks are i worse, the cabaret features vulgar and sensational without a streak of cleverness, and the price outdo New York. "You Don't Mean" "Oh, it's a fine stunt little Rita has steered us up against believe met I'm surprised Alf falls for it And yet, of course" with hasty qualifi cation "he can't do anything else as long as she's his guest But if this stunt of hers, doesn't open the eyes of that anointed idiot who be tween you and me is just about on the point of taking a jump over the broomstick with the lady why, he's a goner, that's all." "Dicky 1" I seized his arm im petuously, inadvertently joggling a scarf pin which he was adjusting out of his hand as I Mid so; "you don't mean that Alfs " 1 "Dippy over the dime?" he coun tered, stooping for the pin with an annoyed grunt. "Why, hasn't your wonderful Sherlockian brain de duced tkat yet? You're getting rusty, olddear. Better apply the oil can." - He settled the pin carefully, gave his hair a slow stroke or two with his military brushes, selected some handkerchiefs with deliberation, while I mentally danced with im patience to hear his next words. x , "What Rita wants of a husband no one knows for aroo&ness sake get-a move on, thev'll be waiting for I - in t.. i . i Li ii : 4 us l ne inicriupicu iiuuscii hiiu- bly. 7 7 7 ' "I'm practically ready," I retort ed, "but I won't stir a step until you finish telling me about this." "Oh, you won't, eh?" he teased, tucking me firmly under one arm, catching up my cloak with the other and rushing me down the stairs. "I'll tell you nothing except that for some unknown reason Rita evident ly thinks she d like to try matri mony for a change, with Alf as the goat And she's pretty nearly got the poor chap lassoed -he's been abroad so long that his perspective's off. focus.

Shortly after the wedding cake had been cut an auto drew up in front of the door and the appear ance of the bride was the. signal for action by the kidnapers.
