rama on reminism
at Little Theatre
When "Illndle Wnkcs," by Stanley
Houghton, was produced a couple of
years ago In London It created a sen
sation. This piny, which deals with a
new phase of feminism and a new type
of girl, will bo produced, for tho first
time In this city, at the Little Thcatro
The title of tho play to Americans Is
yaguc,v of course. Illndle is tho town
wheie tho play la located. "Wake" Is
an lCngllsh term for bunk holiday. In
the play a. girl, Fanny Hawthorn, tho
daughter of a mill hand, spends a. viol:
end with Alan Jeffcotc, son of the mill
owner. The Unison Is discovered, and
how the clrl, with her advanced Ideas,
proceeds to work out her problem, forms
the basis of tho drama.
Kor this production the Llttlo Theatre
Company will bo augmented by Miss
Adah Unrton, who will take tho part of
MrB Jeffcotc, tho socially ambitious
mother of Alan. Wallls Clark will play
Alan, and thus makes his debut In Phila
delphia In his own youthful personality.
a Doting Mother
Irene franklin, who will make her first
appearance here In threo jenrs at Keith's
next week, has soernl hobbies. One Is
to-tour tho country In a Bhow of her own
Another is tennis. But the most on
grossing fs her family. Burt Green, Mlsi
Franklin's husband, writes tho lyrics
which she sings. On arilvlng In town
tho fond parents showed pictures of
"Elizabeth, the latest addition to the fam
ily." "We're both just rrasy about Eliza
beth." Miss Franklin declared. "Yon

"High Jinks" Coming.
"High Jinks," by Otto Haucrbnch and
Rudolph Frlrnl, which rnn an entire sea
son at tho Casino, New York, will open
n limited engagement nt tho Lyric No
vember 23. Moisrs. Uauerbach and Frlrnl
nre well known as the composer nnd
librettist, respectively, of "Tho rirefly"
and "Naughty Mnrletta," In which Kmma
Trentlnf was last seen here.
"High Jinks" Is n mnglqnl perfume
which give happiness. The plot of tho
story concerns the enreer of an American
nerve speclnllst residing in Paris, who
comes under the spell of "High JldKs."
He kisses his patient, tho wife of n
volatlje Frenchman. lie tt discovered
nnd challenged to a duel, but the en
counter never takes place, as the French
man's anger U appeased by the offer
of an equal familiarity with the doctor's
wife. By the substitution of another wo
man the plot becomes somewhat Involved,
and Is still further complicated by the
presence of a wealthy American who Is
looking for his lost wife, The final
amicable adjustment of all grlevunces
abides by no rules of dramatic art, but
depends entirely uncVn the eftlcaey of tho
rerfume, "High Jinks," which Is the
balm for all Ills.
The cast Is headed by Stella Mayhew,
who Is assisted by Eugene O'Rqurke,
Blllle Taylor, Philip Ryley, Emma Fran

Mr, Stokowskl and his men have sure
ly been fortunate this year. Bo far, since
I ho first concert, each Friday afternoon
lifts brought cheerful, sunlit skies, keen
nnd zestftil weather, which have In turn
brought tho concert-goers to tho Acad
cni In a fine, apturcKtlvo spirit It
would tnlte a very hard head, Indeed, to
lmc been hypercritical yesterday. When
on hns th Msutn nnd tho Inclination to
go to the Friday afternoon concerts one
Is picdlspoieil to pleasure,
This K perhaps, the explanation of the
even device of satisfaction the orches
tra ijlvcs. Apart from Hi splendid mo
ments, It high spot of feeling- and ex
ecution, tii oio Is a firm and solid and un
varying plettoure which tiie audience re
ceives. It may not be goqd for tho or
chostra nftcr all, hcrnuso, with the sonm
that they are giving that soft warm
Blow, tho players mny become content;
which would be deadly. They ought to
Inspire nt more frequent Intervals. Even
tually they should rise to the height
where their Inspiration Is continuous.
That was not the case yesterday, and the
tllstrer.tlng truth Is that this Is the only
criticism that can bo mndc. The orches
tra did nothing bntlly, but It did not do
everything" superbly well. It sntlsdcd,
but It did not exalt.
Excepting, to b cure, tho Snlnt-Snon3
number. Why this pleco should havo
been so well done Is a, mystery. "Lo
Ituuet d'Omphale" Is ono of tho most
terrifying piece over written. A thomo
perfectly suitable to inuslcnl treatment
Snlnt-Sncns found In "tho triumphant
ntrugglo of weakness." The whole poem
Is an elaboration of that terrible French
phrase, "tenlr do peau," In which every
lortuious and degrading clement of lovo
Is summed up. The loveliness of It
sciludtlon nnd the stein bravery of the
hciolc song In the busses (which falls In
tho event beforo the strength-ln-wcnk-ncss
of timorous, attraction) nrc the Iron
ic turn of the screw. Once given tho
legend of "Hercules nnd Omph.ilc, nnd tho
composer's own note, some such Inter
pretation of the music is inevitable. But
It Is shockingly unpleasant.
Mr. Stokouskl. fottunntel), did not hc
gli. his program with this. Tho "Arml
nlus" overture, brave nnd healthy and
neiorous, made a much better beginning,
and was played with some, but hnrdly
enough, robustness. For tho llrst Beet
hoven symphony of the season Mr. Sto
kowakl chose the eighth, and, without
prejudice to what tho futuro jnay bring,
It may be said that for Its gaiety nnd
lightness of spirit tho conductor dls
placd a special and remarkable 'apti
tude. Madnmo Louise Homer wns tho soloist
of the afternoon. It was grateful to hear
Bach so sung again, in splto' of the in
felicity of tho English In tho llrst song.
Madame Homer's singing Is hardly cany,
and in such a song ns the ecclesiastical
"My Heart Ever Faithful" It was hardly
happy. But tho "It Is Finished," Irt a
inc.ro soberly exalted mode, was sung
with such :i warmth of voice that tho
question of production seemed hardly to
enter In. But even that did not proparo
for Mndamo Homer's superb singing of
the air from "II Profcto." In this the
tone-coloring wns so varlod and tho ex
pression so opulent apd so JUBt, that the
song's own coloratura seemed Imperti
nent. It made one believe that the sum
of feminine emotions which are uni
versally human, npnrt from being femi
nine, can never bo expressed except In
tho contralto range That Is why colora
tuia. which Is beautiful only when Its
artlflcc Is unmixed with emotion, Bhould
b) left for sopranos.
The Philadelphia Orchestra
- it mo. Olga Snmarorr, who was ' forced
to cancel her scheduled appearance with
the Philadelphia Orchestra a week ago,
has happily lecovered from her Illness,
nnd will play at the concerts of next
week. This will bo practically a socond
debut for Mme. Samaroff, ns Bhe has
played but few times since her mnrrlago
to Mr. Stokowskt. She has chosen
Tschalkowsky's concerto In B flat minor,
the work which she played when she
made her first appearance In London
under Arthur Nlklsch, six yenrs ngo.
The orchestral numbers of the Friday
nnd Saturday concerts include two over
tures, the "Lohengrin" and "Tho Bar
tered liridc." The latter wns heard hero
two weeks ago under the baton of Doctor
Stuck. Following a course which has
already brought two excellent symphonies
back to memory, Mr. Btowkowskl will
conduct tho fourth Mendelssohn sym
phony, known as the "Italian," for the
major work. It has not been played at
these concerts in eight years, Mendels
sohn, while he was writing It, said that
It would be tho gayest piece ho hnd ever
composed. When ' he had finished It he
wrote to a friend that, much to his sur
prise. It satlsllcd him. These two author
Itatlvo criticisms Indicate sufllclently
what the quality of the symphony Is.
Musical Art Club
Tho second nnnual concert of the Mu
sical Art Club will be held on tho evening
of Wednesday, December 9, at Wlther
spoon Hnll, The program Is not yet
completed, but among the numbers which
are assured are a group of songs by Ed
win Evans, a duet for two pianos by
Constantln von Sternberg and Clarence
K. Bawden, a male quartet by Harry a.
Baylor, Henry B. Ourney, Anthony D.
McNIchol and Henry Hotr, and a group
of songs by John F. Braun, Among other
prominent musicians who will probably
appear on the program are Henri G.
Scott, Mnurlts Leefson and Frederick E.
Hnhn, One of tho most interesting fea
tures of the evening will be two move
ments of the Svendaen Octet for strings,
which -will be played by eight, members
of the Philadelphia Orchestra.
Mr. McCormnck's Eecltal
When John McCormack, the celebrated
Irish tenor, appears for his local recltat
at the Academy of Music on the evening
of Wednesday, December 5, his program
will Include many new songs, as well
aa aome of the old favorites by which
ho la known throughout the world, either
by his singing of them or by their re
production from the hard rubber disc
of the gramophone. Tho greatest favorite
of all, "I Hear You Calling M," will ba
among the number, and among the new
additions to the singer's extensive rep
ertoire will be the "The Bard of Armagh,"
founded upon an Iilsh air 700 years old,
and "Mavis," a recent composition by
the author of "I Hear You Calling Me."
At his recent re-appearance in Carnegie
Ifall, New York, these songs wer re
ceived with tremendous acclaim.

Tho only qualification thnt the expert
would make to this statement wns that
It might not apply to pcopto who live In
tho country or to residents of the cities
when on their summer nentlons.
"Ono fact Is certain," ho said "Peo
ple who llvo In town duilng tho winter

and no uno can retain his health who

who do not Ilnd nn opportunity to go to
dances several times n week ihould prac

exerclec. but will become moro prollclent
In the art.
"If there is one thing Hint makes me
tired." the enthusiastic expcit continued,
"It Is these inothri'i who forbid their
daughters to dauco bcc.iuso It will 'tiro

"Such people nro so ignorant of the

would not bo so c'ngcr to nlr their Mews

who dance so regularly that thoy mny

to dancing Is that It gives one nn nppo

"And this talk about spoiling tho feet,"
ho continued, "why It Is ridiculous! If
the muscles of tho feet nro weak they
should bo built up, and this can ho done
by dancing better than any way I know of.
Ono pf tho essentials Is, of course, that
sensible shoes bo worn No one nan de

himself, then showed thnt dancing de
velops the lungs as well an the rest of tho
body, thus rendering persons who practice
the (irt less susceptible to colds nnd other
affections of the lungs limn those who do
nothing to maintain their bodily health,
though he pointed out tho necessity of
avoiding drafts when heated by tho ex
ercise. In conclusion ho declared that those
lances which required bonding of the
body wcro most benellclal, such as the
old "Boston dip" nnd tho more recent
though less strenuous tangos, the maxlxe.
Hie fox trot nnd the Lulu Fndo.
"I have never seen any step to compare
with the dip In the Brazilian maxlxe," he
asserted. "The step, with the stooping
movement from which one gradually rises
to the natural position. Is one of the best
muscle producers I know, ns practically
every muscle of the body Is brought Into
play. You enn't tell mo that any young
man or woman who dances that step reg
ulnrly Is unhealthy, because I don't be

the weekly cycle has been trnccd with
certainty to the greatest antiquity nro the
Egyptians nnd the Hebrews. With the
former, we only know of Its existence,
but with the latter It had a much more
Important character. Their earliest rec
ords speak of Its existence nnd refer It
to a period previous to thnt of the nation
Itself. Tho origin of tho week Is further
nscrihod In tho Jewish ficriptures to
tho creation of tho world, particularly by
tho consecration Of tho seventh dny to
the worship of the Crcntor.
The names given by tho Itomnni to the
days of the week, and which have per
vaded Huropc, were derived from the
plnnotnrv sjstcm which wns supposed to
consist of the sun, moon and IHe planets.

The nihllral' writlngB contain no trace
of any custom of naming tha dny a of
the week after the seven plnnots: nor
had this custom, found nmong the Bnby
lonlnui nnd tho Snbeans, any' bearing
originally on the division of the week
Into seven day, since it ' wns n mere
numerical coincidence thnt seven planets
were assumed In theso primitive nstro
toglcal notations. In tho Bnbylonlnn
nomenclature, the first day of tho week
was tinder tho tutelage of ShnmaMi, the
Observing, then, that tho fact that ac
cording to the Jewish Church, the sev
enth dny wns observed In memory of the
rest of God nftcr the works of the crea
tion nnd their dellyernnco from Pharoah's
tyranny, so the first dny of tho week hns
always bern observed by tho Christian
Church In memory of Christ's resurrec
tion, nnd therefore,
under the Christian
dispensation, the Sabbath Is altered from
tho soventh to the first day of the week.
While tho arguments supporting tho
Christian belief are not satisfactory to
some In placing Sunday as tho first day
of the week. It will be noted that our
authorities b el lovo the most Important
factor to bo that of naming ono dny to
bo set opart from nil others, and ns soon
tui Christianity was protected by the civil
government, the Lord's Dny, Sabbath, or
the llrst day of the week, Sunday, was
ordered by law to be kept sacred.
