FLASHES FROM "STARS"
Sir James M. Barrio, the English novelist
nnd playwright, will spend a month In Amer
ica, and will visit many cities. This Is not, as
has boon stated, Sir James' first visit to Amer
ica, but hli second. He first came to America
In 1E96. One night In September of that year
ho went to the Empire Theatre, uhero Maudo
Adams was acting "Rosemary" with John
Drew. Tho next morning ho visited Charles
Frohman, to whom ho said;
"If you will let me have Miss Adams' serv
ices I will write a play for her within a year."
And ho wrote "The Little Minister."
"As to the war," said BarrK "I believe
America nr a whole feels what England feels
that this Is a necessary war ngalnst militar
ism. Every country has been arming, and
loaded guns always go off sooner or later. The
Issue involved Is as clear-cut as the causo
which brought It about whether soldiers or
citizens are to rule Europe.
"But there Is one distinction that should be
made in stating the causes for war; namely,
that the Kaiser I entirely to blame. This Is
less than filr. The Kaiser was a young man
in 1S70, when tho war spirit seized Germany.
The Kaiser is tho product not the cause of
Germany's militaristic system. There can be
no peace, and no end to the present war, un
less one side Is thoroughly beaten."
A. H. Woods has put Wlllard Mack's play,
"Kick In," Into rehearsal with a cast that in
cludes John Barrymore, Jano Groy, Forrest
Wlnant, Annie Mack Berlein and Ellta Proctor
Otis. Marjorle Rambeau, in private life Mrs.
Mack, was to havo played tho leading femi
nine role, but she has given It up and has been
succeeded by Miss Grey. Byron Ongley is stag
ing the play.
Frank Wilstach was for many years the schol
arly and s.iplent advance agnt for cothern and
Marlowe. Mr. Wilstach is now press agent for
"Tho Follies of 1914." Tho advantages of hor
aldlng uch a show are humorously described by
"I rejoice that I have escaped from the thral
dom of Shnkespeare; that I am now 'carrying
tho colors' for 'The Passing Show of 1914.' With
a Bard of Avon troupe there was no chance for
language, and so one had to bo as serious as
taxes, solemn as a King on a five-franc piece,
or stupid as a hound chasing an iron deer. Now,
all ifi unrestt ained.
"When dibcusslng Shakespeare you can't very
well refer to him as the blithesome, bubbling
hard, or ns the whirling wizard of words, but
ah! how easy and how nice it Is when you havo
to write about a musical extravaganza. Theatri
cal language Is grand. Richard LaGalllene talks
a whole lot about 'beautiful words,' but givo
me alliterations and adjectives and Jaw-breakers.
"If one cannot have the use of all tho figures
of speech, how can one achieve the fluidity nnd
flexibility of expression that will excite atten
tion, pique Interest and accolerato curlosltyf
Let me write the adjectives In advance and I
don't care who pens the criticisms.
"Language without adjectives would be like
a soup house without soup, rlvors without flsh.
a forest without trees, or tho air without birds.
Life without adjectives, trees, birds and soup
would be unbearable."
It Is said that many actors are not good
Judges of what they can do. Nat Goodwin,
one of America's most brilliant comedians,
wanted, for Instance, to play Shylock. And
after he had played It he met a friend.
"Did you sea me as Shylock the other even
ing?" asked Mr. Goodwin.
"I was ther," tho friend replied, "but I
couldn't see you as Shylock."
So It Is. The comedian yearns for tragedy.
The tragedian believes he would win fame
and fortune as a comedian.
Madama Nazlmova. who returned to this
country last week to begin rehearsals in a play
written by B. MacDonald Hastings, had much
to say about the war and Its results in a sort
of renaissance of art,
"Out of this great strife a new order of
things Is to come," she declared. "There will

"This brings mo to an ambition of my own
which has lain very near to my heart all
theso yearn. Whllo I am an American In
spirit, I have long wished to bo an Interna
tional actress to play In English In England,
In France In French, In Germany In German
and In Russia In Russian. Under the new art
I would gladly be an International actress
expressing myself In artistic media as funda
mental and as eanlly understood as tho physi
cal facts of all existence."
According to Georgia Olp, who plays an Im
portant rolo In "Too Many Cooks," an early
attraction at the Adelphl, ambition Is a men
ace if the aspirant worries about It. "Any
thing that worries a person Is abnormal and
all wrong; naturally you will agree that ab
normal ambition Is not a good thing," Miss
Olp says. "Therefore don't go too strong."
