2$ MRS. FISKE INDULGES CIDER JAG FOR CAUSE "Helena Boys" Points the Moral. She (Be printed from yesterday's final tdU'.on.) By UL'KNS MANTLE. Beintr middle ag'i and reactionary you should like Mrs. Fiske's '"Helena's I'.oy because it puts the young- upstarts re p r e-sontir.jr the new peneratio n in the wrong. Being a youthful soul and earer. you should take to it because it offers proof that every forty - year - old in the world is quite as big an i.iiot as you think him. Which should frtve the new comedy at the Henry M:ller Mrs. Fike theatre chance for a sprir.ir run. It was written bv Lubienski Ehrlich. a new comer among the playwrights, from a story by Mary Brecht Iu!ver, a comparative old timer among the fictionits. And if it follows a conventional form in offering the familiar comedy contrast of having mother do the things her progressive sons stand for, thereby disgusting them, it has a balancing advantage in offering the first actress another chance to exercise her gifts as the most intelligent of our comediennes. Mrs. Fiske. for instance, playing widowed mother to a couple of un-licked cubs, is given opportunity to substitute cider for Scouh and pre tend to get boiled while at dinner with her eldest and most exacting offspring. Having lived with the boy's father, who had accepted life as "one glad, sweet, alcohoiiday," she knows the technique down to the AMUSEMENTS WINTER GARDENS" 15 Artists -Models .f l-l II V rHTItl living nf ThoKa-iii Sntnn. r K 1.

And she revels in it, Not only does she get drunk, but she takes occasion to announce her forthcoming debut as the mistress of the tovn"s most popular umbrella manufacturer. If they are for freedom and self-expression let them watch her. They know something less than the half of it. But the play fortunately has something more than this one fairly ancient laugh-raiser to commend it. There is good home comedy in the first section, with the pending arrival home of the yotmg progressives. And there is some smartly written dialogue couched in the current lingo of freedom's outriders. So smartly written that much of it sounds more convincing than anything the reactionary elders have to offer in rebuttaL Mrs. Fiske. looking well, is de- liciouslv droll as the wise mother and gorgeously irresponsible a; the sauiffy one. Her words of acknowledgement before the curtain intimated that she feels a little apologetic because her play does not amount to more. But she need not worry. It amounts to as much as most of AMUSEMENTS CUTIRtPT of B rnt. l4 9 -'' ?at cely. 1 13 Sr VOGUES ODETTE MYRT1L IlaPtS-i Murray an,: s rit Sat Srllinc for iffial Mr-iniitni rrrfonnanr Tomorrow. & 7th Heaven nnnru THEATRE.

Friends present last evening were much pleased. THEATRE NOTES Mary Hay of "Mary Jane Mc-Kane" is out of the cast with a slight indisposition. Her part is being taken by Dorothy Appleby, her understudy, who is a member of the chorus and who played the part Monday night for the first time after four rehearsals. Miss Appleby understudied Helen Ford in "Helen of Troy, N. Y." On account of the midnight performance of Vogues at the Shubert tomorrow night this afternoon's matinee will be omitted. Louis Calhern is the sole member of the cast of "Cobra," who will be seen with the play when it opens in New York the week of April 21. Judith Anderson will replace Wanda Lyon, Ralph Morgan will have Donald Gallahers part, John Wray will succeed Jose Ales- sandro and Paula Shay and Kay Laurell will be replaced by other actresses. J. J. Shubert returned from Europe yesterday on the Olympic. He has been abroad six weeKs contracting for new plays, new material and foreign stars. He will im mediately take up the production of a new operetta by Victor Her bert and Rida Johnson Young and i another play with music. Both are scheduled to open Easter week. Later Mr. Shubert will stage a new revue for the Winter Garden. A benefit performance of "Run-nin' Wild" will be given Wednesday, April 30, in aid of the Tuske-gee institute.
