IF NOT OVER- PLAYED, 8AY8 PROFESSOR WHO EXPLAINS HOW OUTRE STEP MAY BE ENJOYED WITHOUT STRETCHING THE PROPRIETIES. New York, Dec. you dance the grizzly bear? If you can't you must realize that there Is a. serious defect In edu- cation. Because, In society, polite and otherwise, the grizzly bear Is making ;he turkey trot look as prim and old fashioned as a square dance. The other night the first Junior co- tillon took place at Sherry's, but the manner of Its happening was "Hamlet" with Hamlet left out. For no cotil- on was danced because of the almost universal desire of the younger set to dance the grizzly bear. To be sure Mayor Fitzgerald of Bos- ton, recently announced that If the grizzly bear were danced In any of the Halls of that city It would be sufficient warrant for a revocation of the license of the place In which It was allowed. However, Mayor Fitzgerald's words are flung In his teeth by no less a per- son than Alvlene, Frank Gould's old dancing master, and the Instructor of many young men and women In the four hundred. Alvlene declares the grizzly bear Is a perfectly nice, tune- !ul, enjoyable dance, only like other good things, It may be abused. Delightful In Its Correct Form. "In Its correct form It Is quite sim- ple and he explained. "It begins with one two step measure, danced to one side, and a second two step measure danced to the other. Then, clasped with uplifted hands, the dancers take four half time steps In a circle. It Is this move of the dance which IB Its distinguishing feature and from which the name was derived, for :ho motion combined with the uplifted arms reminds one of the pictures of a grizzly-bear rearing up and advanc- ng to meet its enemy. After the half :lme steps the two step measures fol- again, and then tho grizzly bear motion Is repeated. "Personally I do not think the dance particularly pretty or graceful. But, ,ike the Boston and other recent fav- orites, It lends Itself to freedom of movement and a certain romping ten- dency common among young people. However, when It Is properly danced, there Is nothing offensive to Admits Unseemly Possibilities, But there are plenty of unseemly possibilities In the grizzly bear, Im- properly danced, and Alvlene la quick to admit that. "In certain circles even the name la not he declared. 'It la thought to mean that the dancers must stand extraordinarily close together, In Imitation of tho grizzly bear hug. That Is why spectators have some- times asserted that It resembled a hugging match. In this undignified and Improper position the man extends his arms straightforward, resting each hand under the1' girl's arms. The girl puts her arms directly around .the shoulders of the-man, and they are as close if together he., and move.' "Another vplg'Sf .variation' bf? o' way df holding' a pSrtrier Is when the dancers both orook their el- bows out at the side holding them at stiff right angles to the body. Their hands meet in the middle and the el- bows of'one partner rests lightly on the elbows of the other. Again the two are drawn close together In an undecoroua as well as ungraceful po- sition. Most Offensive Feature of Dance. "But the most offensive feature ever seen in this grizzly bear dance consists of the body movements. These made up the real reason the turkey trot was so severely condemned, and they have been transferred without palliation to the new dance. They Include a side- wide swaying motion of the hips anc! a thrusting forward of torso or abdo- men beyond the normal position. "Needless to say, all these motions are not only ugly, but offensive to re- fined taste. They were originally copied from the most depraved stage dances, such as no decent person would practice, even professionally. But the they certainly are an accepted part of the grizzly bear, as It now and then danced. They are not con- fined to the lowest class of dance halls, either for reckless gayety gets the up- per hand of social decorum more often than Is generally thought. Deplores Society's Example. The grizzly bear le one of the dances Included under the ban of the committee on amusements and vaca- tion resources of working girls, of which Mrs. Charles H. Israels is chair- man. "I think It Is a great pity that so- ciety women should take up this dis- graceful dance, even If they stick to a mild and refined version of says Mrs. Israels. "Their Influence Is BO wide and farreachlng. When the newspapers chronicle that Mrs. Some- body of Newport Introduced and danced the grizzly bear at her ball It Is only to be expected that young peo- ple seeking to be socially correct should Imitate. "How can we expect to arrive at a decent standard for dancing when we have continually to fight the assertion that suggestive dances are taking place in the homes of the leaders of At the Theaters Cedar Rapids Theater Passed Up Great Show. Several hundred theater goers who would certainly have appreciated one of the very best offerings of ent season, missed a rare treat last night when they remained away from Greene's opera house. A scanty hand- ful of people saw the play, "With Edged and that scanty handful most of them at deep chagrin that a play and a cast of such exceptional merit should fare so badly in a city that la supposed to want the beat..: "With Edged Tools" didn't come loudly heralded. Perhaps that is the reason the audience was BO small. Or perhaps It was because no alleged great star was featured. But theater- goers should remember that some of the best things hare no press agent with a wonderfully vivid Imagination, and that often there are casts without one much-heralded star but with a company who are all stare of the first magnitude when It comes right down to the ability to properly Interpret "With Edged Tools" le a dramatiza- tion of Henrj- Seton Merrlman's novel of the same name, and In svery way measures up to a very high concep- tion of dramatic. excellence.

Be It to, the credit of the cast, the ac- ed as if they were appearing audience numbered by the What an inspiration It would1 have been for them, however, If audience had been as large as the play deserved.

Marie Leonhard, Nora Cralgie and Florence Dulhunty. If the company ever returns to Ce- dar Rapids In this play, by all means put It on your list. These Boys Are Dancers. What Is conceded to be the best dancing act ever witnessed at the Ma- there have been some good ones, at that, is being presented this week by the Calts brothers. One of 'em Is a big, tall fellow and the other is a little short 'un, but gee, how they can dance! And they do It so easily that they seem to enjoy It as much as the audience. They wear swell clothes and step It off In a manner that is a real pleasure. Blllle Burke's Foolish Factory IB a hodge podge of foolishness but it Has been getting the laughs. There are eight persons In the cast and they keep things moving from start to finish. George Hlckman Is the principal comedian and he Is assisted by several good fnnmakers. Airs from old Ireland are furnished upon the Irish pipes by the Burke- Touhey company during the action of a funny sketch called "The Birthday Party. "The Lakes of Klllarney" and several other of the old timers are played in a manner which stirs the pa- triotism of they swear al- legiance to the Emerald Isle or not. "Circus Eve in Mexico" is a novel act furnished by the La Keillors. Lew- Is and Green present a comedy sketch called "Engaging a Cook" and Chris- topher and Ponte have a musical stunt. Landls and Knowles also fur- i niah a clever singing and dancing turn. Lora is Coming. Manager "Vic" Hugo of the Majec- tlo has booked as a special attraction for next week Lora, the girl in the parrot. It Is another of those great "mystery" acts and promises to fur- nish as much fun and entertainment as Annie Abbott, the Georgia magnet, who was here a few weeks ago. In ad- dition to Lora, a strong bill has been booked for next week. Saturday Matinee and Night. One of the strong- features of "The Girl In the Train" IB the excellent score by Leo Fall. This score alone would carry a much less pretentious musical play to success. Some of the most popular songs in the piece which already have become known, are "Fol- low "You Must Be Mine, "That's Why People Marry" and "I'm Fancy Free." The play Is beautifully staged, the -gowns are attractive and the entire production Is up to the dard of attractions that come to us dU rect from Broadway. At Greene's Sat- urday matinee and night.
