For while these two ] stars are really back to the scene of I their tirst triumph In Harrisburg, they have been immensely .successful in I first-class musical comedy ever since. I 'one of their most successful ventures i being "Th" Girl of My Dreauis" that I played the Majestic Theater tVice last' 'season. To-day they are fast favor-1 I ttes with local theatergoers and when' I .the reasonable prices in \ o;j c ;i the' ■ Orpheuni are taken into con.- . .ation jit is only fair to say that 11 a us and j Mclntyre are in themselves \v rta the j tme nnd price. But the- excellence of the Orpheuni bill supporting them re mains up to that playhouse's good standard. For Lou McConnell and Grant Simpson, great favorites of sev eral seasons back, are here this week in a new comedy called "The Right Girl," and then "The Girl in the Moon," a vocal spectacle, is one ot the most artistic "sight acts" of the season. Comedy, novelty and variety are all happily blended in the remain ing attractions. —Advertisement. AT THE COLONIAL "Who Owns the Baby?" Is the title of one of the best mirth-producinfc dishes that has been served up to Colonial patrons for some time.

A song, dance and pat- ! ter duo and a clever singing comedian round out a bill that is above the i average. "Above the Law" is the title 1 of an excellent Lubin feature 111 m In two parts that will be presented at the Colonial to-day in connection with some other Interesting features of the first-run licensed films.
