St Paul Jan. 1. Five workmen in
a lumber camp joked and laughed with
each other while the lights were shut
off and then were horrified to see the
lifeless body of one of their companions
fewlnging from a celling steampipe al-
most in the midst of the group when
the lights were turned on. The man
who was a new employe had hanged
himself while his companions talked.

"What sort of a place Is this Reno?"
"It all depends on what you are
"That cook couldn't boll a three
minute egg In an hour."
"Have you frog's legs waiter?"
"No sir. it's rheumatism that's the
matter with me."
The programs -call It a Pullman car-
nival joke for the three scenes are
laid in a Pullman car and "Excuse Me"
is all of a carnival and more. A car-
nival does not describe It A riot would
be better a riot of fun for from the
time the curtain rises on the interior
of the Pullman car with its grinning
porter until It drops three acts later
there is not a second that It is not
laughable. "Excuse Me" will not go
down into history for its unusually
bright lines although there are lots of
good things in. it. as witness those at
the top of this article but acted by a
good company it is a scream: it has
all the elements of a scream in its
makeup and with a good company of
aetors. which is exceptionally true of
the company at the El Paso theater
nothing more could be desired if it is
an evening of fun one is looking for.
While the action takes place In a
Pullman car twts in the Pullman
and another In tX ombination buffet-
observation car v. re is none of that
Frenchy fun of mvlng berths and all
that; it is cleancut clear comedy some-
thing that might happen any time on
an overland train but never will.
Think of the possibilities and then
realize thjit they are all carried out to
the fullest and you can guess what it's
like. First there is the porter Willis
P. Sweatman. himself a star in black-
face; then there is a fat man who just
naturally makes you want to laugh
when you look at him. because he is so
good natured and to make it funnier
he has on a jag not a nasty mean
Jag. but just a jolly talkatave jag.
This role Is done by Sidney Greenstreet
Sidney is going to Reno to get a
divorce from his wife (Reta Otway)
because she smokes and drinks. His
wife gets onto the same train bound
for the same place to get a divorce
from him because "he drinks too much.
A minister and his wife (Jack Hollis
and Enid Gray) on their first vacation
are among the passengers and they
disguise themselves so they can have
real fun: the minister has to smoke
cigars drink whisky and do lots of
things just because he turned his col-
lar 4round and replaced his clerical tie
with a red one. An old man with a
frouch against all women (Wm. V.
trunz) meets an old maid missionary
soured on men Lalive Brownell) In the
ear: she was his boyhood sweetheart
and they get married before the train
reaches its destination. The wife of a
man whose husband the fat man's wife
has been flirting with (role taken by
Ethel Weir) Is also on the train en
route to Reno and she gets up a. flirta-
tion witha drummer (T. J. Dougherty)
who is bound for nowhere in particular.
An Englishman (Galwey Herbert) with
a wagonload of luggage and golf
sticks has a. beastly hard time because
there is no tub on the train: the porter
says there is a tank (pointing to the
fat man) but no tub; and most import-
ant of all is a young couple supposed
to be married but who failed to make
connections with the minister in time
to reach the train and are searching
for a minister to marry them and can't
get one and can't leave the train be-
cause the young man must reach Frisco
to catch a boat (Robert W. Frazier
and Reva Greenwood are in thes roles.)
Then there Is a poodle dog of the near
nride a former sweptheart fWmifred
Lee) of the near groom two holdup
men near the end of things a shyster
lawyer from Reno soliciting business
a gambler a newsboy and a train con-
ductor a peach of a conductor well
acted by Chas. Chappelle. Just Imagine
What could be stirred up In four days
among such people on a train bound
for the coast arid yet you can't imagine
half the things that do happen.
