It is as colorful as its locale might auggeat. and proves a succession of varied dances that follow each other with Under the Proscenium Arch Jeanne Kajlci, the star of "Rain," reached stardom by no easy stages. She was born In Boston of Spanish and Irish parentage. Her father and mother moved to Kansas City when she was five years old. At seven she was enrolled aa the child player of a stock company, but deserted the troupe to return to school. At ten she returned to stock and from that time she has been on the stage. Always a good dancer, Miss Eagles, after running the gamut of stage parts in stock, decided to enter the musical comedy field and joined a company headed by Richard Carle. A brief turn In "The Pink Lady" was followed by her decision lo elect for her career dramatic acting. Jeanne Kagles was the girl who stepped Into Elsie Ferguson's part in "Outcast" when that star was taken III soon after the play's New York engagement ended. News of her brilliance seeped into New York and from that moment Jt was resolved Into a matter of mere tlmo when the youthful actress should show her talent In the Interpretation of -a fitting role. Phil Baker, who calls himself a "had boy from a good family," will hn at the E. F. Albee Theatre this week with his accordion and. hM comedy. Baker is a Brooklyn favor- it o The accordeOn is a popular in strunicnt in Brooklyn dealers in musical instruments reporting a hlKher percentage of sales than in any other section ot New York. Perhaps this explains a part of Baker's, popularity for Phil banks heavily upon the instrument. "All hough the accordion has been a faithful foil in my work in the theatre." said Mr. Baker, "I am afraid long continued use will make it more ot a detriment than a lielp to me. Theatre audiences will 1-sgln to think rtiat I could do nothing without the accordion and there will be no chance to advance. Until I went Into the navy I never tried a monologue in niy act but depended solely j upon my. ability as a musician. But 1 developed the monologue while en-1 tcrtuining during the war and now I 1 feel that I can do light comedy j work without the Instrument. Fori years Joseph Cawthorne played tlic concertina and I may have to keep, on playing tho accordion If I go into: musical comedy, nut eventually i hope to be able to give It up." Gregory Kelly, who Is co-atarring with Madge Kennedy In Max Marcin and Kdward Harumond'e delightful travesty on the mystery play called "Badges," at tho Majestic Theatre, has his own idea on character reading. "Some folks." says Gregory," claim to be able to read character through the handwriting, face and other mediums, but ) get a pretty good line on people by looking at their footwea r. "For Instance, the run down at the heel fellow is usually just that inasmuch as he is shiftless and care less ot nis personal appearance, no would probably be the fame if entrusted with some important mission. The man with the pin point shoe is most always a nervous, Irascible person, and the broad toed shoe denotes flacid, easy-going Indifference, especially when it is of ici-kld. A fist, heavy soled and broad toed shoe denotes, to me, determination and slubbornness. "Spats always make me think that the wearor is without shoe laces, although, ot eourse, this isn't the case. "Thla method of Judging character la naturally bound to be wrong; In a lot of cases, but t get a lot ot personal fun out of doping them in my own mind, I wonder what peoplo think ot the shoddy shoes I wear In the first act of 'Badges?' " The negro Is the originator of modern Jazx. 'This is tho assertion of Kuble Blake, of Slssle and Blake, w ho sre at Werba's Brooklyn Theatre with "The Chocolate Pandlea." "Unless a whit man has been reared In the South with the blacks J ana knows them thoroughly, he can not give even a medic :re Impersonation of a negro minstrel," says Blake. "The distinctive traits arc racial and must- be born In one. There are hundreds of negroes In the South with wonderful voices and a talent for dancing, ' ut they do not have Qp.ortunttl.a u show ths whites what they can do, ao their chances to develop are limited. 'We feel that we sre giving the world real American folk songs and dances thst will go t'own will) the years aa dlatinctive as the Russian or any other prowuneed tyns of art, "All we need Is a little encouragement. The love of music snd dancing is inherent In our natures, and if ws are allowed to egpreaa It In our own terms ths reauit will be an acquisition to musics! Interpretation."- The path to screen stardom Isn't an easy erne. No star realises that more than Richard Barthelmess, whoa newest picture, "Soul Tire." Is the photoplay attraction this week nt the Brooklyn Mark Strand Theatre. - , Karthflmesx Went through all the tribulations (hat mark ths path nf the screen asrirant. The very first has cotton off to a flying iturt, . - . I tho rapidity of ehots from a gaUllfp gun.

The initial Sunday concerts of the season will be given this afternoon at 2:30 and this evening at 8; 30 o'clock, time he ever faced a camera was for a small motion pVture company. He was Just an extra and the camera caught him walking down the Fort Lee, N. J., hill. He "went around to a theatre afterwards to see the finished picture and managed to catch a fleeting; glimpse of himself. It was his first thrill of screen work. One of Barthelmess' very first film engagements was as an extra In the production of "Uomeo and Juliet," In which Francis X. Bushman and Beverly Bayne appeared. The future star donned tights and acted a merry citizen of Verona In a -Coney Island street at (7.50 a day. Several weeks later he played an extra In a IJillle Burke picture. . It was not until much later that he scored his first screen hit, playing the younger son of "War Brides,'" the photoplay in which Nazimova made one of her oarly film Barthelmess made a hit In tills production and soon made another step on towards stardom nn lending man tor Marguerite Clark In her "Bab" series of comedies. Soon after he scored again as leading man for Dorothy Glsh In a num. her of Grlfflth-rrrade comedies. D. W. Griffith liked his work so much that he gave him his first great opportunity in "Broken Blossoms." His portrayal of the dreaming yellow man of this tragic tale of Limehouse made stardom Inevitable. Florence Mills, star of "Dixie to Broadway," momentarily adorns the Keith-Albee circuit, accompanied by will Vodery, leading his Plantation Orchestra, and half a dozen steppers. "There's no tonic for the weary like a good musical revue," says Mips Mills. "It Is pleasant lo watch, good to the 'ear. and full of nice. obvious laughs and doesn t require any brain effort. It is a lot of fun to play In such that we In the cast of "Dixie to Broadway" used to enjoy ourselves just as much aa the audience seemed to. "I prefer playing in a revue to playing in an operetta. The latter may be better musically and dramatically, but I think the former does the world more good, and I Intend to devote my efforts to musical comedy for the rest, of my life."
