PALACE j l WEDDING MARCH SOON; BANJO ONE, FOR LOIS WILDE Many romances are born in the Follies, but few of them blossom to any great extent. One, however, that is blooming beautifully at the j present time was exclusively , announced i n .ff la s l aunaay a 1 f edition of the SUNDAY NEWS and told the story of the J - a p p r o a ching Xjr marriage of Lois Wilde, one Lois Wilde of Z l e g f e W s most glorious glorified, and Leslie Major Sheriff, gay banjoist in George Olson's orchestra. Lois, a former Brooklyn girl, has been known throughout her nineteen years as a child of pre-natal influence one of the most noted cases of its kind. Before Lois was born, her mother wanted her to be beautiful and she was, and is. Her mother wanted her to love works of art and she did, and does. And whether the mother had any idea that her Lois was some day to marry Leslie Sheriff, will never be known but she's going to. "I think Leslie and I jrfU be married some time next month," said Lois, "and I'm sure that no other girl is as happy as I am today. Brooke Johns introduced us to each other two years ago, you know, and our romance has been flourishing ever since. Isn't that the way it should be?" Lois, who was once voted the most beautiful girl in the Follies organization, danced in the ballet at the Metropolitan Opera House before joining the Follies two year's ago.

K..om H06 K9 Fitzroy 3744 "SKY HIGH," BIT FOGGY, 1 HAS LIVELY DANCES Willie Howard, Single Star, Pleases Audience. Joyce Barbour By BURNS MANTLE. It was not until Willie Howard, the new star of a piece called "Sky High" at the Shubert it was not until Willie, playing a sub-rtTfx stitut barber, & - had Florenz barber chair and was ookine a lathered brush down his throat that the comedian's audience really rose to him. Before that h i s imitations had cone well. particularly those of Lander and Jolson, with less enthusiasm for the Cantor. And his part of the grand opera he used to sing with brother Eugene, the fat feeder of the Howard family, had earned the usual encores. But still there seemed a little something less than complete success indicated by the crowd's attitude. The barber chair thing, however, went big, as usuaL It was for Howard what a "Mammy" song with crashing finale is for Jolson and the comic brutalities of the osteopath's table are for Cantor. I left the Shubert at that point, but I daresay the friendly rioting continued to the end. "Sky High" was done first iff London o tnmiit Viirxr rn.ei "Whirled Into Happiness," and has been rewri5? ten over here by Harold Atteriuge and songs added by Alfred Goodman and others. It Is still pretty thick as to book. The bursts of humor were mostly assisted by Howard. The crowd thought it funny when he suggested that shy girls are a lot like ocean liners; it takes little tugs to get them started. And there was a double laugh for his conclusion that women are not only loquacious, but frequently give an unbiased listener the impression that they have been vaccinated by a phonograph needle. This is another of the shows that seeks to make up in speed what it lacks in other ways. There is a chorus that is on it3 toes constantly and well trained. And there are several clever speciay dancers. These romp in and out, forming the snakelike figures familiar to dancing directors, and indulging in song cues heralding a rollicking piece about those dear old Oxford days or the heroine's longing for love. The number that seemed most popular was one sung with great eorinncnse fr HnwflrH rlpi'lar- ing his indifference to the rain, i i i i i ram, rain so lung as ue naa a pti and a gaL Or Eentiment to that effect. ' 1 I The romance suffers slightly in having sprung from a hairdresser's shop. Barbers are so seldom dashing. The hero, blonde and agreeable, inherits a barber shop from his distinguished family and thereafter passes himself off as a "PHIIHPS"MILK OF MAGNESIA Unless you ask for "Phillips," you may not ret the original Milk of Magnesia prescribed by physicians for 50 years as an antacid, laxative, corrective. 25-cent bottles, also 0-cent bottles, contain directions any drug store. MIR T AM GROWS UP But She's Still the Youngest JOnderstudy on B'way. MIRIAM BATTISTA, only 13 years old, is now understudying Violet Dunn as the flapper in "Hell's Bells" at Daly's. Little Miriam acquired fame as a screen child actress and as the little crippled girl in "Humo-resque." Now she hopes Miss Dunn "will get married so she can fill her role. lord to win the duet privilege with the heroine. Joyce Barbour, the English girl who was a good actress in "Havoc," is a singing girl here and does quite well. The young barber is a boy named James Liddy, competent if a little conscious, and the leading dancer is the graceful Vannessi. There are six lively specialty choristers and little Ann Milburn sings the love song from "Rose-Marie" surprisingly welL The costuming is elaborate.
