THE CAST States Etty Lew Ayres Towhead Anita Louise Captain Lilly.. Harry Beresford Vergie Elizabeth Patterson Merchant.... Slim Summerville ACROSTIC IN DEFENSE OF MODERN POETRY Ah, friend, lament the Shakespeare nor the Keats, But be content at least to compromise. All folly lor the poet now who bleats Love's tender lays to stars in ladles' eyes! Loyal, of course, to fundaments of love, I - And differing but to look to no illusion, Do we, the moderns, seek our stars above-Ever to find them in Divine profusion. I am not prone to strike discordant notes. , Nevertheless, I feel that you are wrong Do you not know there's music in our throats ' Endeavoring vainly to burst out in song . Forced back but by the wisdom we have earned? Ever must modern progress trample under! '. Nothing Is sweet, my friend, when we have learned ' Spring 14 the mistress of a brute named Thunder I End your lament! - And meet your fate half way. ' Odious, true, romantic rhyme is dead; Free verse like, love may hold Ignoble sway; Moonlight and lines of romance long since bled ' Our hearts of passion's brilliant hue, I think Do we seem less the poets if we make . Even our poems with a lighter ink? Read them and criticize them (while we quake) ' Not giving thought to all that I have said! Pity no heart whose red has turned to rust! Only the truly famished relish bread 1 , Envied by no man for their humble crust! To pens of the Great, I bow with grace benign-Resting with brows beneath the laurel vine You write your rhymes, but leave me, Prince, to mine! ELEANOR AUSTIN spite of the fact that it was probably all done In miniature. BEST SCENES: An excellent shot of the floating shanty Town taken from the deck of. a passing river steamer, and that cleverly faked scene of the rescue on the brink of the falls. BEST PERFORMANCES: Lew Ayres, as States; Harry Beresford, as Captain Lilly, and Elizabeth Patterson, in an important character role, are excellent. PHOTOGRAPHY: First rate. AUDIENCE RECEPTION: Applauded at finish. FAMILY SUITABILITY: Excellent. FOR CHILDREN: Recommended. GENERAL RATING: A finely acted and directed drama of old days along the Mississippi. Russ Columbo and the Mills Brothers again feature the Para-mount's stage show this week. Buck and Bubbles, the former Ziegfeld Follies stars, and Eleanor Powell also are on the bill. A special Christmas overture is played by the concert orchestra, and Merle Clark and Elsie Thompson offer Yuletide selections at the twin organs. Cast 'Gifts' Rice When Elmer Rice arrived at the Plymouth Theater last night to bid goodby to the cast of "Counsellor- at-Law" prior to his sailing at midnight for a West Indies cruise, he found himself the guest of honor at In the revival of 'Fata Morgana,' coming to the Royale Theater ChrUtma night. a surprise gathering of the entire TYPE OF ENTERTAINMENT: Drama. STORY: Lew Ayres plays the role of States Etty, a lad who leads a happy life chugging up and down the Mississippi on Captain Lilly's old river packet. States always had believed that Cap'n Lilly (Harry Beresford) was his pappy, but when he learned that both his parents had been "poor white trash" who died in Shanty Town years before, he left the white-haired skipper and went back to live with his kinfolk in the rickety old houseboats from which Shanty Town got its name. There he fell in love with Tow-head (Anita Louise) and everything went along smoothly enough until Old Man River rose up and swept the houseboats away. And when it looked as if Slates and Towhead and old Vergie (Elizabeth Patterson) were going to be drowned in the flood, there was old Cap'n Lilly and his trusty hind-wheeler standing by to pick them up and take them off to some happier existence far from the squalor of Shanty Town. COMMENT: "Heaven on Earth" (it was called "Mississippi" in Ben Lucien Burman's original novel) is company. Louise Pressing, In behalf of the cast, presented Mr. Rice with a copy of "Counsellor-at-Law" specially bound and bearing an illuminated inscription page on which appeared the signatures of every member of the company. Paul Muni, near-star of the play, also made a little speech. that the husband isn't worth the effort, is related in "Good Sport" at the Fox Theater this week.

At the Strand Those who like Sherlock Holmes mystery adventures (and who doesn't?) should go to the Brooklyn Strand this week to see "The Speckled Band."
