HATS OFF , LADIES [Newspaper Article] — Player — 5 January 1912
HATS OFF , LADIES BERLIN , Jan . 1 . —The police president of this city has just issued an order to the manager of all theaters which will make them liable to a fine of $ 25 if they allow women to keep their hats on in any part of a theater . It has long been customary for women , sitting in the stalls and balconies , to remove their head coverings , but those sitting in the boxes usually kept their hats on . The police official states that he is issuing this order in order to preserve public peace inasmuch as the wearing of large hats has led to many altercations . The women who wear the hats will be guilty of a misdemeanor , but the manager will have to pay the fine .

Although it was drizzling rain people waited patiently for the box offices to open at midnight , and then made a grand rush for tickets . The Casino , Gayety , Trocadero and Empire theaters all sold out in a few moments , and many hundreds stood to see the shows . It was . a ; good start for the New Year , and if it is any indication of the business that will be , done in 1912 everybody will be happy .

Most of the costumes ran to the comic shade...
