P A G E S I X Arcadia, California. Friday. M«cfc 11, 1M2 DRAMA CHURCHES SOCIETY Club Activity Is Diversified Many Sections of Wemaa's Club Stimulate ud Educate Member* Sectional activity in the Woman's Club of Arcadia has reached a high peak of interest, according: to a recent survey, tnd chairmen of the various sections, assisted by their committees, have arranged enticing programs for the remainder of the season. Many members have joined more than oue section, finding a diversity of interests in the pleasant and educational features offered by these groups. At a recent program Mrs. Emma D. Meade, president -jt the club, made a request Tor ciiul* j(i«n of the sections to read brief treatises prepared by them, on the" attractions and needs of departmental work. The response was gratifying and a stimulation of interest was evinced following the reading of each chair- Arcadia C uty Cbnreh (Presbyterian) Corner of Huntington and Double drive. Rev. John A. Glasse, minister. Mrs. W. P. Andrews, director of man's contribution. The largest and the oldest, in point of years, is the Garden section, which now has reached almost the proportions of a separate club. Headed by Miss Grace D. Mc- Cuidy, garden enthusiast, who has prepared many delightful programs and field day sojourns for her fellow gardeners, ihf- section meets twice monthly. Regular meetings, usually held at the homes of members, feature talks on horticulture, flower arrangement, history of flowers and wild life, and correct pronunciation of botanical terms the latter being in charge of Mrs Harry Marshall. Field trips take th« members on sojourns to canyons, rambles in the hills, along the seashore and excursions to famous nurseries. Notec gardens'-also are included in the itinerary of the garden makers. Civic beautification is one of the major interests of the garden group, and tree planting ceremonies at the grammar schools and other points throughout the city hav« marked many programs of these enterprising women. In her essay on the activity ol the garden section, Miss McCurdy traced the history of gardens back to the Garden of Eden, the earliest garden recorded, and told of the inspiration offered by their culture throughout the ages. As a sanctuary for birds, too, she declared, a garden does much for posterity. She told of the indefatigable labor of the birds in exterminating: insect pests, as well as their contributions to the esthetic senses of sight and hearing. Healthful exercise of cultivating a garden which also has a tangible reward in the beauties of flower and fruit is another benefit derived by the garden maker, Miss McCurdy pointed out. Few people are cognizant of the necessary fundamentals of law which are applicable to every day needs, declared Mrs. Meade, chairman of the Law section. Laws change from year to year, she explained, necessitating constant study to keep abreast of them. Through ignorance of laws people make themselves liable to damage suits and other claims, much of which could be averted by a proper knowledge of laiv^. She urged club members to gain a knowledge of community property laws, laws governing disposal of property after death, traffic laws, pure food laws and laws relating to criminal jurisdiction. Through the studies offered in the Law section a satisfactory outline of these laws may be obtained. The Literature section offers a wealth of educational literature through the book review programs given monthly by Mrs. Edith Roberts. In a recent talk before the club Mrs. Roberts, as a sample of the reviews given the club, gave a short resume of a. bit of early California history in "The Robin Hood of El Dorado," a vivid and compelling epic of outlawry in the gold rush days. Her programs include contemporary literature in history, biography, poetry and fiction, and persons of limited time are enabled to gain a comprehensive outline of good literature in a short time. Mrs. Marion B. Gramm, chairman of the pr-E-tiim, told of the interesting and instructive lessons given in the section on correct uses and pronunciation of words, _so many of which are commonly mispronounced. Interior decoration, as exemplified in lamp shade making, rug weaving, leather tooling. ciuiUinfr, polychrome work, china painting and innumerable avenues of home beautification, *tre «ome of the attractions offered by th« Crafts and Industries section, headed by Mrs. Ralph Sparks. The latter, in her essay read before the last club meeting, outlined details of these crafts which center around the home, which in the final analysis is the chief interest of every club woman. The Bible section, which has attracted a large group of members, offers a study of the Bible in * manner entirely non-sectarian, states Mrs. Marion Pike, chairman, The Bible section heads the list of departments in importance, she declared, for its educational, cultural and spiritual values. This grf-atest work in literature, ith eflVct on Lhe literature, art, civil government, home life and ita ramifications, are studied in Bible groups of clubs all over the land, and more clubwomen *r* coming to realize the fascination of it, Mrs. music. Rachel E. Parker, organist. Royden R, Hopper, church school uperintendent. This church is serving the com- nunity as the official repreenta- ive of the evangelical cburchee hat are co-operating in Southern California to avoid needless dupli- at ion of effort, senseless stressing f minor differences that divided incere Christian people in the past, and wasteful spending of money on iompetitive projects.

Hollywood PUrfaeus* Presenting an Excellent Comedy Attraction "Springtime for Henry" should be seen by everyone. It is a clever comedy, brilliantly acted, well staged and produced, though at times slightly risque. Edward Evertt Horton is the bright particular star at the Hollywood Playhouse, and a supporting cast includes Irene Puree)!, Lilian Bond and Herbert Mundin. What a secretary can do to a business man has always been an interesting matter of discussion, and thjs excellent comedy by Benn Ijevy is another contribution to hints for tired business men. There is no doubt the comedy will be popular and deservedly so. CARTHAY CIRCLE Fortunately the Municipalities Light Opera association venture is a success at the beautiful Carthay Circle theater, for it means music lovers will be able to enjoy excellent attractions for many weeks to come. "Sons o' Guns" is the first offering of the company, and an excellent one it is, with Ethelind Terry, Richard Powell and Frederic Santley featured. The fun is much better than the singing, though the cast of one hundred carries through the musical comedy to a successful Woman Editor Praise | Seventy-ninth by Relatives and Friends Mrs. Ida Watson celebrated her a J- n » · · i . ·» . seventy-ninth birthday Sunday at Arcadia KOtarianS Loud n Their'the home of her son und daughter- Tribute to Mrs. Vanxa N.

Everyone will enjoy the lighthearted ness of the score and libretto, and there is no doubt "Sons o' Guns" will prove an excellent opening attraction for the work of the company. "Vagabond King" is scheduled for early production. PASADENA PLAYHOUSE Last seen as George Harding, the deaf conspirator, in the English comedy, "Passing Brompton Road," last November, Addison Richards, popular actor and associate director, will play the leading masculine role, that of George Brent, the muchly married husband, in the gay comedy-satire of the hantin* and shoottn' set, "The Young Idea*" by Noel Coward, which win be given its first westei'n production at the Pasadena Community Playhouse, March 17 to 26. Richards has played a score or more roles at the Playhouse. Before becoming a member of the Constant as the rugged hills that tower In mute communion with a higher power, Untiring as the wisdom of the hour, Ne'er ceasing in her search for truth, Annual Tea Party Is Given for Teachers at Randolph Home Mrs. Car! L. Randolph gave her annual tea party for the teachers of the Holly avenue school and the Santa Anita avenue kidergarten, Thursday afternoon of last week I was chosen for the affair, and Mrs. [ M. A. Hartnett of South Pasadena acted as assistant hostess. Beautifully decorated with peach blossoms and other spring blooms, the Naomi avenue residence was a charming setting for the tea served to the teachers following their arrival frum school duties. Following the dainty refreshments a so- staff of the Playhouse, Richards was a leading 'actor with the Moroni Olsen Players in the Northwest, and for a season played in the Hollywood Pilgrimage Play. "The Young Idea" is a witty, rather fantastically farcial comedy, in which Noel Coward manages, it is said, to make the manners and aspirations of those who have an inclination toward equestrianism, appear exceedingly funny. The play was first produced in England and later in New York, with the author in the cast. The comedy follows the current I production of "When Knighthood Was in Flower/' which, with Maude Fealy, Gilmor Brown and a cast of one hundred and morrow night. fifty, closes to- Definitely scheduled for production some time in May, Brown announces a new musical revue, work on which by Harold Hecht, of "Luckv Day" note, has been underway for some time.

Mrs. Grace Cornish presided over This is an event in the Los Angeles theatrics' world, and every playgoer should see this beautiful romantic- eomeily, especially as the great aeUr is using Brian Hook- fer's exquisite translation. There is no doubt that this is an event in the world of the local theater, as everyone who has seen the finely mounted production has been loud in their praise. Unfortunately the f u t u r e bookings at this theater will not allow the phiy to make a lengthy stay and playgoers are urged to see »»ne of the great classics of the stage. THEATERS DARK Presumablv the sl^ek season at the Hollywood Music Box has failed, forthe advertisements in the metropolitan papers have been removed, atthoueh no word has been printed as to the eloping of the theater.

BEI.ASCO THEATER Richard Bennett's production of "Cyrano de Bergerac" failed, chiefly owing to the bad translation, the approaching visit of Hampden's production and the cutting of the text.

Owing to the intended revival of the drama during the Olympic games, the management of the San Gabriel Playhouse has decided to close the play Sunday evening after a most successful run. EL CAPITAN THKATER "Gypsy Jim," featuring as itdoes Leo Carrillo, will not stay much longer at the El Cap i tan theater, as Henry Duffy has secured Joe E. Brown to play a lending part in "Square Crooks," a delicious satire of racketeering methods. Carrilo's play has not been a success, as it has proved too sticky sweet, though the popularity of the star has saved the play. Brown should bring many laughs to the El Capitan and will no doubt fill the popular Fuffy theater for many weeks. No definite date has been set for the closing of the play, "Gypsy Jim."
