OFGREAT EDUCATIONAL VALUE
Members of C!ub Take Dinner at Kim

dorsed. An audience that filled the Burth
opera house in Davenport, greeted
"The Clansman," presented un
ler the auspices of the Trl
City Press club last evening. All ex
pectations were more than realized
The dramatization proved worthy of
the powerful work by Thomas D;xon
Jr., and last evening's performance
constituted probably the most illumin
ating lesson that has been given in the
ri-cities on the problems involving the
black race, particularly as they existed
it the close of the civil war.
The effect was especially marked be
:ause of the fact that this community
vas brought closer to the situation
fhan most places in the north through
the location at Rock Island arsenal a'
a prison for confederate soldiers. Th.
outbreak of mob law at Springfield
Mo., within the week also served to
heighten the effect.
The company was numerically ant
ndividually strong and the various
icts were given in an intensely rcalis
