"Maytimc" Enjoyed by Large
Audience; Musincal Num
bers Applauded
With pleasing songs to add to the
attractiveness of the play, Lee and
Schubert's success, "Maytime" \?as
presented at the Orpheum last
night to a large and appreciative
audience. It is billed also for this
afternoon and evening at the locust
street playhouse.
Opening with a scene in IS4O at a
Mew York home in Washington
Square, the narrative begins with a
little romance between Ottillie, niece
of Colonel VanZandt, and Richard
Wayne, a son of one of the Colonel's
workmen. But Cupid's romantic
plans and those of the Colonel did
not have the same destiny for Ot
tillie and instead of marrying Rich
ard her hand is given to Claude Van
Zandt, the Colonel's favorite
nephew. This happens after Wayne,
driven from the Colonel's home a
poor boy, has gone abroad and be
came wealthy. When he returns he
finds Ottillie married and then to
prevent a scene with her husband
says that he came back to marry an
old sweetheart, Alice Tremaine.
Time goes on and in the 80's Ottil
lie is a widow and compelled to sell
the VanZandt home and furnishings
to pay Claude's debts. It .is bought
by her old sweetheart, Richard, and
given back to her.
Years afterward the grandchil-,
dren of these disappointed and un
happy ones meet and are married at
the old VanZandt home, now the
place of a twentieth century dress
making establishment conducted by
Ottillie VanZandt. granddaughter
of the Ottillie of the Ottillie of the
Colonel's days.
Undoubtedly the musical num
bers make this offering as enjoy
able as any of recent years. The
heart appeal of the famous waltz
song "Will You Remember?" lifts
it far above the ordinary ;and "On
the Road to Paradise," sung by
Richard Wayne when he returns to
find Ottillie married, is ne of the
best romance songs of the day.

the prophecy which is bringing
great relief to many who have be
come exercised over thoughts of a
rigorous winter, which many other
prophets have said was on its way.
They say the snows of the coming
winter In this region will not be
deep and that the winter will not be
severe proportions. They base their
belief on the fact that the hornet I
nests of their neighborhood have
been built unusually low this year.
This, the prognostiicators maintain,
is an infallible sign of a mild win
