Garry Captain Cramer Walter Gilbert John Mayo Forrest Orr Dolan Jack Williams Ho an Dan Carey George M. Cohan Appears at the Alvin Theater in His New Comedy, 'Dear Old Darling,' One of His Giddiest George M. Cohan Is back, back In another of his own comedies, one of those kidding things he improvises as easily as a web is spun. It Is called ''Dear Old Darling" and you will find it at the Alvin Theater. Mr. Cohan describes it as "a comic experience," and It is that exactly. A gray-haired young man of 50 or so very much like George M. Cohan had a young girl fall In love with him and follow hlra all over Europe, and her affection led to two acts and five scenes of strange situations. There is no playwright who can spin out a play with so many surprises and ingenious little twists of plot as Mr. Cohan, no playwright who knows the theater so well that acting and play-writing and direction seem all of one piece, giving no Indication where one ends and the ether begins. He can play endlessly with finely woven variations of a situation, take r, line and change it and echo It and toss it about until the cows come home. Sometimes he tries to make a little go too far, and pertwp- he did that last night, turning to a new variation only after having played with the other a shade too long. His plays are the marvelously expert sport of a man who adores the theater, thinks of it as something to pet and chuck under the chin and chortle over. Through the greater part of his life the theater has been pU.ce for fun and cleverness and excitement, in fhort, entertainment. He Is always a delighted magician doing tricks. The theater in his time has changed, grown more serious, philosophical, tried hard to find something to say. Thit sort of thing is not for him. To him a theater is always a playhouse. So in "Dear Old Darling" we find again the things of the playhouse-cops and robbers. It Is very lovely when this little girl who has followed him from London to Paris, from Paris to Nice and then back to New York pursues him still in New York, throwing herself Into his arms, throwing over her fiance and begging the gray-head to marry her, forcing her way into his house, sending him delirious telegrams. It Is charming. She is charming. He is charming. The play is charming, deft and light and delightful. His Innocence and frightened delight In her are charming, too. Then little things begin to happen that have a mysterious air. There is, for instance, the man who walks back and forth on the other side of the street watching the house. The girl's mother is angry at Mr. Cohan because her daughter Is crazy about him. The mother blames him, and that man on the other side of the street Is set to watch the girl. So Mr. Cohan calls him in to question him and ends by being thoroughly and balmily questioned himself. Then he calls the police. The mother has threatened to call her husband on from Arizona to shoot him. And the police first laugh at the puzzled gentleman and then accuse him. He is lonely and Innocent and bewildered. And comical. Rolling his eyes, stamping about the stage, twisting and turning and standing still. This is not farce or comedy or drama, it's Mr. Cohan's own cheerful kind of madness. He cannot write any kind of play nowadays without kidding. Well, he goes on spinning and spoofing until he gets his hero into a prettty pickle and then he springs his biggest surprise, and that one is not his freshest. We learn all about why the girl has been following him and throwing herself at him. We go back to the old cops and robbers. And the cops and robbers, though still maneuvered ingeniously, are a bit of a let-down. It would have been nicer, if they could have been left out. Mr. Cohan himself plays with all his delightful drolleries, as agile, as larky as ever. And Marion Shock-ley Is the little girl, smart and vivacious and reckless and fluent and altogether a very nice little actress. Charles D. Brown is Mr. Cohan's bosom friend of the play and the weird Joseph Sweeney is the man who watches from the other side of the street. If you believe the theater Is the place for pranks and legerdemain, for brilliant make-believe, for play, that is, this will warm your heart. Fake Scenes Were Taboo In 'The Lonesome Pine' For the first time in many months a motion picture has been made without the assistance of a single faked scene. Not one miniature set or a single "process shot" was used in the filming of "The Trail of the Lonesome Pine," first outdoor picture to be made with the new three-color Technicolor process, now at the N. Y. Paramount Theater. Every scene in the picture which shows Sylvia Sidney, Henry Fonda, Fred MacMurray, Fred Stone or the other players strolling, fighting or romancing in mountainous country actually was filmed high In the mountains near Big Bear Lake, about 100 miles from Hollywood. And when it came time to burn the camp, Director Henry Hathaway scoffed at the idea of using a miniature set. He saved that scene for the last and then actually set fire to the camp in which the company had been living. Personal Appearance Dolores Costello Barrymore, co- star with Freddie Bartholomew in the Selznick International production, "Little Lord Fauntleroy," is en route to Warm Springs, Ga., where she will attend the world premiere tomorrow of David O. Selznick 's first picture as an Independent producer. Miss Barrymore is making the trip at the request of Henry N. Hooper, resident manager of the Warm Springs Foundation. The first audience to view "Little Lord Fauntleroy" will be composed entirely of the young patients at the foundation, and the theater will be a temporary one specially constructed for the occasion. THACKERY CLUB DANCES Hemptsead, March 3 More than 30 couples attended the cocktail-tea dance held at the Hempstead Elks Club Sunday afternoon under the auspices of the Thackery Club. The afafir was one of a series of similar events conducted by the group twice each month during the Winter. The NIGHT REPORTER By MAXWELL HAMILTON (And the Kight Patrol) THE WRITING ON THE WALL: Or leaves from a milkman's diary.

On trial for 'Libel, at Henry Miller Theater j Stage News "Chalk Dust" will open at the Experimental Theater at Broadway and 63d St., tomorrow evening under the sponsorship of the Federal Theater. Harold A. Clarke and Maxwell Nurnberg are the authors of the play, which will be the first production of the Federal Experimental Theater under the supervision of Virgil Geddes. James Light directed the production, the cast of which includes Katherine Standing, George Smithfield, Her-schel Cropper and Alan MacAteer. In view of the educational problems involved, a committee composed of John Dewey, Roger Baldwin, George Vettor, Harry Elmer Barnes and other educators has been formed to assist in an advisory capacity in the production of "Chalk Dust." Crosby Gaige announces the purchase of "Mighty Man," a drama by Milton Lazarus. The play is scheduled for an early Fall production. Sydney Thompson, discuse, will give a costume recital of "Scenes From Guy de Maupassant" and medieval tales and ballads at the Brooklyn Institute on Friday evening, March 6, Walter Greenwood, the young Englishman from whose novel, "Love on the Dole," was fashioned the drama of the same name, will Opening Postponed SAINT JOAN, Katherine Cornell's production of the Shaw play, will be presented at the Martin Beck Theater next Monday. The postponement has been necessitated by the illness of Katharine Cornell, the star. Guthrie McClintic staged the production, and Joe Miel-ziner designed the settings. Curtain-time; 8 P.M. Bruna Castagna Makes Her Metropolitan Debut in 'Aida' Lange Conducts Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra at Town Hall There was still another debut at the Metropolitan Opera House last night this time of Bruna Castagna, a contralto with something of career behind her in various opera houses of the world including, most recently, the New York Hippodrome. Mme. Castagna appeared last night as Amneris in "Aida," and disclosed a voice of genuine contralto timbre and opulence in Its middle register, with low notes that were excessively sepulchral and high notes afflicted by a tremolo (this may well have been due to nervousness, for It diminished in the course of the performance). She disclosed also a dra- matic temperament that is sorely in need of the restraining and guiding hand of an intelligent stage manager and a plumpness costumed in what I would call the Hippodrome style if it were not also the style of the Metropolitan. For various gaudi-nesses in the Metropolitan's second act constituted a veritable assault on the eye. And the general taste -lessness of the production, its complete lack of stylj, of mere idea, were the most striking for my having witnessed earlier in the day the dress rehearsal of the production of "Fidello," and seen the results of a different process. But of that more at the proper time. In the cast with Mme. Castagna were Elisabeth Rethberg. Giovanni Martlnelll, Louis D'Angelo, Thelma Votipka and Giordano Paltrinierl in their usual roles, with Carlo Moreli as Amonasro and Virgllio Lazzari as Ramfls, the American Ballet for the dances, and Ettore Panlzza conduct ingat which point one might mention that the orchestra made a generous contribution to the sloppiness of the evening's proceedings. Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra The Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra under the direction of Hans Lange concluded last night its series Theater. There will be the customary eight performances this week, with matinees tomorrow and Saturday. Ruth Matteson has succeeded Doris Nolan in the leading role of Karen Andre In "Night of January 16," the melodrama at the Ambassador Theater. Miss Nolan withdrew to lulfill Hollywood engagements. Louis Birnbaum, who is appearing In "Which Woman Is Right?" the week-end Yiddish drama at the Parkway Theater in Brooklyn, will be starred there in the title role of "Avremale Melamid," a folk musical comedy, which will open this evening. George Scliaefer Becomes General Manager of U. A. . The board of directors of United Artists announces the appointment arrive here on the Aquitania on ! of George J. Schaefer as vice presl Tuesday, March 10, to witness the American production of the play at the Shubert Theater. "Pride and Prejudice" gives its first regular Tuesday matinee today at the Plymouth Theater. There will be no performance tonight. Beginning this week, the play inaugurates its new performance schedule, with matinees Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, eliminating .aonday evening performances. "Danger Men Working," which Raymond Moore had planned to bring to the Longacre Theater next week, closes Saturday night in Philadelphia. Cast changes and rewriting are given as reasons for the withdrawal. Mr. Moore plans to Uj out the mystery comedy at his Summer theater in Cape Cod the first week in September, and to bring it to town for an early Fall opening. "At Home Abroad," the Howard Di.'tz-ArUmr Schwartz musical, is now in the last week of its New York engagement at the Majestic dent and general manager in charge of American and Canadian sales. Mr. Schaefer, for many years a prominent figure in the motion picture industry, takes over his new post Immediately. Mr. Schaefer entered motion pictures more than 20 years ago, and for the past 15 years has been as sociated with Paramount in various capacities, rising to the position of vice president and general manager, a post held until several months ago. With Schaefer at the head of United Artists' domestic affairs, Maurice SUverstone, chairman of the United Artists organization in England and the continent, continues as head of the company's business In Europe. himself in polyphony but seems to have disregarded the tremendous maturation of emotion which brought about this difficult art. The Mason work, romantic in style, contained the finest melodic material of the evening, and this turned out to be an accurate inversion of a theme from Brahms' "Academic Festival Overture." By far the most significant composition of the program was Hinde- smith's Kammermuslk. Richard Strauss' criticism of this music -maker, that he was too gifted to write as he did, applied to most of this music for Hindesmith appeared to have spent most of his time reveling in his mastery of tech nique and style without troubling himself to create anything. The most serious attempt in the latter direction occurred in the third movement, "Quartet: Sehr langsam und mit Ausdruck." A small audience was present to applaud Mr. Lange's work in pre senting this series. RALPH WINETT. of concerts at Town Hall devoted to five centuries of chamber music. The final program, "The Modern Chamber Orchestra," comprised Dante Fiorillo's "Music for Chamber Orchestra"; a barcarolle by Walter Heifer, "Water Idul"; David Diamond's "Ballade" all heard for the first time; Daniel Gregory Mason's "Scherzo Caprice," and Hindemlth's Kammermuslk, Op. 24, No. 1. The Fiorillo selection was written when the composer was 18, and its choice out of the 350 works which he has produced up to his present age of 28 was perplexing. The promising quality of the few ideas which peppered the repetitious score in a completely undeveloped state made one curious to know what has become of his talent in maturer labors. Walter Heifer's "Idyl" constituted a slight advance from the technique of Debusslan impressionism and a considerable retrogression from its significance. David Diamond, who is only 20 years old, has Interested present. Aniceta Shea A late but notable debut of the season took place at Town Hall yes terday afternoon, that of Aniceta Shea, young American soprano who last year won a prize In the Naum burg auditions. The program, which began on a rather grim note for a debut "Suicidio," from Ponchielli's "La Gloconda" included lieder by Brahms and Schumann; a Latin group by Bachelet, Vidal, Ferrari, and Cimara; an English portion by Liza Lehman, A. Walter Kramer, Mrs. H. H. A. Beach and Erno Balogh, the accompanist; and concluding section of works by Marx, Sibelius and Richard Strauss Miss Shea disclosed a voice of generous volume and pleasing qua! ity, together with an ability to con ceal the nervous tension which would have told considerably in the singing of less experienced vocal ists. The artist's interpretative un derstandlng, which in the lieder group seemed to be still on the route to maturity, produced musicianly results in the rest of the program, especially in the Latin section, where the more buoyant lyricism was enjoyably set forth.
