If the ammunition factories of the
; States cm keep pace .vith Doug?
las Fairbanks and his machine gun the
country is safe. Never airain will the
Vaqui Indians try to ru.?h gun, girl and
Douglas. In fact, after watching the
thrilling climax of "The I.amh," at the
Knickerbocker Theatre, last night we
doubt if there are any more Yaquis.
"'Ile I.an.h" was the contribution of
David W. (?riftith to the triple bill with
which the Triangle Film l'ompany
opened the Knickerbocker Theatre as
a $2 picture house. The lilm is, *to
our mind, over the hilis and fur away
beyond "The Birth of a Nation" in sus?
tained interest of story, and 'he charge
of the Indian?? across a great sagebrush
plain is at least as good as any of the
'.*.-.Id rides of the clan?inen.
Bereft, too. of any annoying pi opa
gum?a, su! h as burdens the reconstruc?
tion picture play, "The l.aml." may
fairlj be laid 'u "e ?he last word In
thrills. Serious entertainment it
Through al1 ?our excitement you never
for a moment doubt the outcome or
fear for '.;..- lit" o? the hero.
It is the ?mile rather than the gaap
or the gurgie ?vith which ths average
spectator receives the various incidents
in the progress of Douglas Fairbanks
out of the jaws of death into the arms
of the heroine, but the man who can
turn away anee ' lin? Lamb" is in lull
swing and has our profound sympathy.
For him there never was a melodrama.
"The Iron Strain," by Thomas II.
Ince, and "My Valet," by Mack Bennett,
complete a ii.o-i enjoyable bill, al?
though neither Rim measures up to the
Griffith play. "The Iron Strain" is
"The Taming of ihe Shrew" adapted
for Alaska and I'Ustin Farnum, while
"My Valet" is a rollicking farce ah ich
provides Raymond Hitchcock with hu?
morous opportunities and also ,
th.- tulents of Mack Sennett, Fred Macs
and the beautiful Mabel Normand.
To follow the plot of "The Lamb"
one must go out into the surf where ?i
girl is drowning, Inch in the air with
SO aeroplane, and across the Arizona
desert. I.et it suffice that after en?
counters with two gunmen, on?- snake
and a lion, doublas Fairbanks linde
elf in the centre of a vast sage
brush plain with the heroine. Seena
Owen is a most beautiful heroine si !
Douglas Fairbanks might have found
it quite tolerable there, sagebrush, ?un
ill, if it were not for the iaqui
, the saying ia, two is company, and
802, mo?tly Indians, is a crowd I.,
lier in the him the girl had <j I
bank? because he had a yellow streak,
but a chromatic traasformation has
taken place. In the crisis he's true
blue. And he stands by his mai
gun until the last cartridge i?? iircd.
The gun? Oh, that's all explained
in th.< story. No, he didn't bring .t
with him. The gun barks north.
i ast and west, and don't you bel -
tl al a barking gun never bitea, Down
Vaqu? after Yaqui m headlong
tumble. i'n they come again like
Kipling's Fuzsy-wutzies. The "injia
rubber i.ijiti" are on a spree and
'here's no s'opping them although
the gun make? them give pause.
Finally, the last cartridge is fired
and Fairbanks sets himself to face the
!..I. Her. Qrifflth has done his best
work. Fearing S trap as th?-y approach
c*lo?er to girl, gun and hero, the In?
dians. cra.vi boiiywiae through the
brush. On the screen you see acre and
acre of the crawling savages coming
Fairbanks has one weapon ieft. His
imila Is as sure fire a hit a? the ma

.. and the chief expre?-.-- a keen
desire for the heart of the hero. He
reckons without ?h.- United States cav
i'.ry. who rde over the hi'ls inio a*
merry a figbt as i ver graced the screen.
And in the end the hear' goes, as ev
erj hero's should, to the heroine.

The Drama Society
HERE is a letter just received from the pres?
ident of a prominent banking company.
The comment it makes has frequently
been made, and the question it asks as frequently
put to us. Our answer satisfies us. Does it
To The Secretary of The* Drama Society s
Dear Sir. Mrs. * * * * and I are only too glad to
renew our subscription to The Drama Society. I cannot
tell you how much we enjoyed the plays your committee
selected last winter. It is certainly a great convenience
to have the new productions scrutinized in this manner,
and also to be able to obtain good seats so easily.
Will you kindly send literature with regard to the
Society to the following addresses, stating that you do
so at my request?
I do not see,how you can pay the necessary expenses
on the small amount of the annual subscription. It
seems to me that all of the members would be only too
glad to pay from five to ten dollars additional each sea?
son for the privileges you offer. * * *? * *
It is a tempting suggestion. Yet we adhere to
our plan of ourselves paying the expenses of ad?
vertising and conducting the Society. Members
pay only the box office price of their seats, plus
two dollars a year to cover the bare cost of bulle?
tins and of delivering to them their tickets.
Not all art-loving playgoers are bank presi?
dents; nor are all bank presidents so easily sep?
arated from their money. We do not question
how solvent a person may be, nor how liberal,
so long as he really loves the theatre.
What we are after is numbers, not money.
Numbers mean financial support to good plays,
and especially they mean advertising among good
playgoers. We intend that everyone who can
afford to go to good plays shall be better able to
afford The Drama Society.
We save our members time, trouble and money,
in order that our members may save good plays.
In this way, and in this way only, is it possible to
insure that more good plays are produced.
We have, however, our limit. To-day and to?
morrow are the last days we can afford to address
you here. Fill out the blank below and we will
send you our full orogram and all pertinent infor?
mation. Do it now, while our proposal and our
address are before you.
The Program in Brief
Members of The Drama Society receive the beat acata, for
the beet play? only, at the box office price.
They tav? money, time and trouble.
With two strokes of the pen our members accompli?), what
much telephoning among agencies often fails to accompliih; and
they safeguard themselve* against the waate of their retources
and their time on less enjoyable plays.
Out of tweUe play? ?elected aa the heat of the niton, each
member agree? to take ticket? to ten, for any performance within
the fir?t month of the run. The total yearly a ubtcription, cover
ins twenty tick?**t?,_i? J42.
Thia ?bay be paid in one aum, or in ten instalment? when
A member may reaign at any time without financial lot?. All
money advanced for play? unlisted will be returned.
