By Graoo Klngsley It would appear that Charlie Chaplin Is not going to allow romance, even romance with so marveloualy fascinating a young lady as Pola Negri, to Interfere with his picture work. At any rate, the world's most famous screen comedian announced yesterday In course of 'a chat, that as WHERB AM. rRAUMAN'S THEATERS This is 'ths Last . Day o?

"We hear ynu are fairly out-Grlffithlng Griffith in this feature." I told the comedian. "I believe we have a very good picture." Charlie admitted with his usual blush of modesty in talking about his own work. Then hie enthusiasm plus his sense of humor overcame his timidity.

Ills recital will be remembered many a day i as one of the great events of the . regent musical season, and perhaps, planlstically speaking, of many seasons. . Already famed as a composer in the circle of musical devotees, and popular to the point of distraction through his C sharp minor prelude, which every schoolgirl at some time essayed, he thrilled and enthralled his audience, not with him Interpretation of the ultra, and the new, but with the familiar and the classics. To each separate number that he played, however, he gave an Inflection which was - distln-gul hlngly individual, and which marked him aa an antagonist of the routine and conventional In music. Rising above everything was the grandeur and brilliance of his sweeping virility. Oh these Russians, and their art! How vi-tally, how seriously they take their music and their painting and their acting! What a massacre they make of the Innocents and the sen-timent&lltts! Aa might be expected with the composer who la also an ardent exponent of the piano, the main features of Rachmaninoff's program were his Chopin numbers. He' selected that emotionally ever difficult B-flat minor Sonata, of Chopin aa his leading offering, and he brought before hi hearers al Its rhythmical bigness, and Its somber tonal Are.

We can't see a good picture, you now, without wishing we were in it!" j tliarlie Murray Slgna Charlie Murray, former Sennett comedian, has Just signed a long-erm contract to produce comedies .or C. C. Burr, a New York pro-Jucer, according to wire received last night from the East. k A aW of the Scherzo was memorable, and he gave an accent and meaning even to the worn measures of the Marche Funebre. I feel that in the Rachmaninoff rendition there Is always a. background larger than the scheme of notes. Sometimes the Importance of the mere notes vanishes utterly, and the man gives you something that Is above or beyond the composition. His playing is dynamic and restless, shaded in the mor abrupt and startling ways at times but ever and always Individua His playing of the Rondo b Weuer was brilliant to the very ultimate. In fact, it approached the dazzling. His own prelude in C sharp minor, much abused, became again under his Angers a living thing of crashing chords, and madly racing notes. There were riotous , momenta in "The Beautiful Blue Danube" waltz transcriptions and the Second Hungarian Rhapsody by Liszt I STARTING TOM if'-- M ' T if 9 8 rSUa !

If Miss Newcomb can find time in the next three months, she is going to retire to a local hospital and part with her appendix. Mrs., Cu&hlng Hero , , Charlotte Chlsholm Cushing. author of a dozen Broadway successes, Is among us. She Is lending her aid to the staging of her newest play, "Nancy Stair," which will go on at the Majestlo tomorrow. Mrs. Cushing Is a petite blond, pink cheeked as a flapper, and full of pep. She has a mind like a flash of lightning, and he says that she is never tired. "It makes me tired to rest," she laughed yesterday between puffs on a clgaret and advising with Thomas Wilkes and James Neill on the rehearsal of her play.

For contrast, there were the Chopin Nocturne In F Eharp, the Etude in D flat by Liszt, wherein beauty rose exquisitely to the surface, lightly ruffled by the player's ever-present and restless energy. Rachmaninoff Is as you might expect from viewing his photographs, a tall man of somewhat heavy build. When he plays the piano be has to stoop over it, and you feel that the keys of the Instrument are at his mercy. But, from these keys he conjures music that is more than music; la, indeed, artistic Inspiration In lta full Imaginative flight.
