(CPA), Men whose eh let attribute Is culture seldom join the police department of any municipality, yet New York had one such man for more than a quarter of a century. He was George II. Qusckenbns and he could write many titles behind his name for he hart made the grade In the world of education and decided he wanted to see the other side of life the side so often vividly revealed to the policeman In the performance of his duty. Quackenboa retired a few years sgo with the title of lieutenant. He died recently, and that brings up this story of a man who was most unusual, whether a member of a police force or just an Important citizen. Of commanding appearance, due to a huge mustache he wore, along with a sombrero of the variety used by eowpunchera en the plains, he was a noticeable figure wherever he went, and his linguistic abilities often brought htm into publlo notice. Few men who have not lived In China can speak Chinese, yet this police officer mastered the tongue and often was called upon to interpret the language. He took up the sign language used by deaf mutes and became so proficient that he was an Instructor in an Institution. His knowledge of the foreign tongues was so extensive that for years he was thrt police department representative at the, bureau of immigration, . Now it may be said that this policeman hud been graduated sb a physician and was the master of a dozen languages and many dialects. .He had the title of professor before he donned the blue ot the department because ho had Popular Prices!

In his career he often appeared as a plain cop before men who sat aa judges on the bench, but it never disturbed the educated one. HO had picked out his job and he liked It. One. of the finest examples of romplete. rest can be found on Murray street just off Broadway. Every day a bootblack places the portable cleaning stand just far enough from a wall to allow a customer conveniently to lean back while pldclng his foot on the stand. After the shine la finished and the customer has gone, this particular bootblack does not follow the usual oustom of picking up his portable stand and soliciting trade as he alowly moves along. Instead he remains on his knees gazing at the blank wall. He doesn't even look around to. aee if there la a likely prospect in the offing; he just gases and watte. When a customer take up hts position the shine te given and the oomplet Immobility resumed. Considerable activity last night In the far-from-Broadway ,drama centers. Take Denver, for instance. Ethel Barrymore, heading for the coast in "The School for Scandal," played Denver's Broadway theater and the playgoers of the Rockies probably got properly excited .about it. The city of White Plains, somewhat closer to long-acre square, Is seeing "They Know What They Wanted," Mt. Klsco is getting "I'ou and I" and Dennis, Cape Cod, is revelling In "The First Mrs. Fraser," nerved up by none yther than Grace George. A! HA-HA I HA-HA1 H HAHe loved 'em' allA-l l HkUn!maira HI !

TE IS RARE F Play Deals "With Sex in Hilarious, Non-Clinical Terms By WOOD SOAXKS BILLIB BURKE, charming, vivacious, lovely, and witty, returned to the bay district at the Curran theater last evening and was welcomed with open arms by the first nlghters who were united In the opinion that nothing has matured about her but her art, and that "The Vinegar Tree" was delicious high comedy. This Is a form of entertainment that has been virtually lost to us since the days when John Drew and Henry Miller used to pass their gay salHee so blandly over the footlights. Nowadays we must await the advent of the muse at the homes of Noel Coward, Frederick Lonsdale and the other British writers with an occasionally unexpected arrival at an American atelier. Paul Osborne who wrote "The Vlnegnr Tree" is virtually unknown to this or any other sort of stage fare. True he wrote a sexy bit called "Hot Bed" which had a brief Brock Pemberton display In the east but got no further, and then he turned his "hand to "The Vinegar Tree" for the uses of Mary Boland in New York, and forthwith achieved a hit. Just what hidden significance the title may have is beyond this reviewer, but that it provided an evening of rare fun as handled by Miss Burka and her cohorts U easier to decide. It la a light and airy bit of fluff, never sententious and never problematical. It deals with a problem of sex but It discusses It In hilariously non-cllnlcal terms, Miss "Burke is Laura Merrick, a sort of Ingenue Mrs. Malaprop snd matronly Duley rolled Into one. Married to a crusty old gentleman and the mother of a collegiate daughter, she is a frivolous, addle- pated creature who can t remember, her own sister when she sees her after fifteen years, and can scarcely remember her own name If asked to respond quickly. She had burled herself In the country, so she tells someone, be cause her husband felt that it would be good for his liver and his heart. She never would have moved had It been only for one. To another she explains that some thing Is as far apart as alpha and beta. And when quarreling with 'her sister over questions ot the heart she exclaims: "Why you who have been married too much, can know nothing of what It means to be married too little!" Separated from the text, these Items may appear merely insane observations but delivered with the Burke touch In the midst of the Osborne . situations, they become eplo, and the vaulted dome of the Curran echoed' the laughter of those who had come to renew acquaintance with the winsome redhead of yesterday, and remained to huzzah the titlan of today. "The Vinegar Tree" la the story of this witless mother whose daughter la returning home from college not engaged to the youth of her choice because he fears that she lacks the experience for wifehood. He has been reading books and so has she, but mother la little ur nu iicui. inuii, iuu, ine muuhb js full of people grumpy old father, a handsome suitor of yesterday, and the errant slMter. Between the sextet everything comes out according to Hoyle and Father Time, but not before countless obstacles have been surmounted. "The Vinegar Tree" Is a play that might easily be both dull or naughty without the company and the star, but with this combination Is a palatable and Jovial affair, an excellent example of good casting and fine direction. Warren William, of the New York troupe Is again the wicked man about town, recalling both Iiou Tellegen and Hamilton Revelle In his work but remaining original in his methods; Julie Dillon and William Janney are true as the youngsters; William Morris a delight as the acrid but amusing father, and Dorothy Blackburn, an old .Oakland favorite, excellent as "the bigamist." "The Vinegar Tree" Is one ot those productions- that make the stage Indispensable. Pioneer Contractor Of Santa Rosa Dies SANTA ROSA, July 28.I11 for several months, John D. Sullivan, pioneer masonry contractor . and builder of many of the best known downtown structures, Including the Rxrhango Bank, the (IrosH and Doyle buildings, died at his homo In College avenue.

He Is survived by his wife and one daughter, Mrs, Annie Von Arx, of Sebaatopol. ; 4 Li!

The Film Daily followed with an editorial suggesting the possibilities of Miss Caubaye. The Ink was soarcely dry on this boosting of the Caubaye stock when the news leaked out of the Gilbert Miller' offices that she has been offered: the role of a French adventuress in the first Miller production. The; . play is an English production, due for a Broadway showing in the, fall. And now andtber story tomes from New- York: to the effect that Jack Livingston, publisher of a casting directory-,-has decided to turn producer and will make hla debut In the fall with a comedy called "Qood Morning Caroline," the work of Miss Caubaye and Wilbur. He la coming to San Fran-Cisco soon In "On the Spot." In the interring aha reports by mall that Shit ffi'la taken several movie tests but at present Is more interested In the theater. She Is known -to local audiences from her work at the Fulton both as leading; woman and guest star end was last on the coast in a road production of "The Squall" In which she had starred in New York. TWENTY SEASONS AGO TODAY "The Admirable Crichton" U at the Macdonough with Landers Stevens, A. A. MILNE, who was represented In Berkeley last Wednesday with "Meet the Prince" Is at work on a new play which Is to be presented by Arthur Hopkins In November. This bit of news' emanated from the Hopkins' offices where the chubby producer presides over a diminutive theater with only a few hundred seats and presents plays that suit himself and the seml-Vlctorian clientele he attracts. And usually these Hopkins productions also develop Into hits. His plan this season la to do John Galsworthy's "The Roof" for a starter. It was presented In London a eouple of years ago and while It was chalked up as a failure In the British capital, it Is said to be a drama of strong possibilities If outfitted with a good cast and produced with care. , After "The Roof," Hopkins Intend to do the new Mitne play. The British author of whtmsey cabled Hopkins last week that he had started work on the first act and since Milne has a reputation for being a steady worker, Hopkins Is making his plans accordingly. FORTY SEASONS , AGO TODAY "A Royal Pai$" it the attraction at the Oakland, with George C. WHEN "The Cardinal" was produced. a.t the Greek theater recently I complained in the review that it like most of the presentations there, did not take advantage of the possibilities of ths theater. The other side of the question was provided in a chat with Professor Popper between the acts of "Meet the Prince" at Wheeler hall. "You must bear In mind," explained the head of the committee on music and drama, "that whatever we do there must be solf-sup-portlng, that the budget tor productions in limited to our own resources, and that with the public Interest so apathetic, we would be forced to pay for the productions out of our own pockets. It cost Margaret Anglln about $8000 for her Greek plays. If there is to be a change, it must be one Inspired and fostered by the students;" It seems to me, though, that the Greek theater and its productions should be a university enterprise. Here is a magnificent plant going to seed for want of competent attention. The Greek theater evoked expressions of delight from Max Reinhardt when he first saw it, and incredulity when he was told how little It Is used. Fortunately for our atate pride, Reinhardt did not aee the theater during the course of a production. If he had seen the crude lighting arrangements, the elemental stage facilities, and the other horrors that a small amount ot money intelligently expended would relieve, he would have had a low opinion of our cultural importance. For a stone'e throw from the Greek theater with its antiquated equip, met is the football stadium which Is the last word In athletic convenience. And If an indoor, theater Is needed, the students have to hire a hall In order to get a stage.

It is amazing what happens to people once they come under the benign Influence of the great glorifier. Edward A. Blatt who produced "Subway Express" and "The Up and Up" is planning to start his season with a production of "The Terrible Turk," a comedy by Bruce Gould and Beatrice Blackmar. Blatt doesn't do much producing but it was "Subway Express" that revealed to New York the directorial talent ot Chester Erskln, who promptly got a better Job; and "The Up and Up" that disclosed the histrionic skill of Pat O'Brien, who forthwith went to the talkies. Doubleday Doran, the publishers, have put out an American edition o Noel Coward's "Post Mortem" and announced that the play will be done this season In New York under direction of Guthrie McCllntlc.
