Even as you and I.
The fool, he called her his lady
Even as you and I.
As celebrated as this famous poem
by Kipling, Theda Bara, the vam
pire woman in a "A Fool There
Was," creates the modern role in
one of the most gripping of her
true to life creations. It is the
story ofthe young man with, all his
good intents snared in the wiles of
a (beautiful woman who drags him
down to an ignoble end. In vain
he attempts to escape the meshes of
the ."rag, a bone and a hank of
hair," but his devoted worship to
common clay causes him to become
hopelessly emeshed in the depths of
degregation. It is a stoTy that
should be seen. It tells its lesson
vitally and drives home the daily
life struggle and its results from
lack of will power to withstand the
temptations of fascination and in
fatuation which robs the better
nature and reason of all that it holds
in 'the future. The portrayal by
Theda Bara is vivid and intense in
its detail. It will be shown at the
Rex, last time, tonight.
Tomorrow, at the Rex, Harry

The United States government
through George Creel's Committee on
Public Information, division of films,
of which Charles S. Hart is director,
is offering to the public the first of its
official war films, "Pershing's Cru
salers." There are eight reels of this
film which graphically shows how
every able-bodied American is help
ing to win the war. These pictures,
which show the grim earnestness of
the United States government in its
war aims and its determination to
stamp out Kaiserism, were taken by
U. S. "Signal Corps and Navy photo
graphers and cameramen of the
French general staff at home and
abroad. In addition to this, "Per
shing's Crusaders" will show interest
ing scenes photographed by the cam
eramen of the Allies. Each week, as
important events happen over there,
they will be shown as a sort of cur
tain-raiser to the big feature.
"Pershing's Crusaders" will be
shown at the Rex Thursday and Fri
day. In order that everyone may see
and thus realize the results of Ameri
can effort in this war it has been de
cided to show this film at popular
wartime prices within the reach of all.
