Lady Duff-Gordon Appears far a War Charity---Herman Timberg
A fashion display staged by Lady Duff-Gordon, and including thatpersonage herself as an added attraction, was the mecca that drew anunusually large crowd to the Palace Theatre yesterday afternoon. LadyDuff-Gordon's vaudeville appearance is on behalf of a war charity, andin that cause she presented a rather naive entertainment entitled"Fleurette's Dream at Peronne." Its military environment is ratherunnecessary, and an equally striking effect would have been achieved bydropping all pretense of narrative and merely parading the mannequinsacross the stage.

The program also includes the versatile Herman Timberg, fresh from theWinter Garden, and undeniably an  tentertainer [sic] of parts.Among others on a fairly good bill are Cecil Cunningham and a tabloidmusical
comedy entitled "The Reckless Eve."
