Frank Bertelson, clerk at the Hotel ,
Harms, who is the Rock Island dele- ,
gate to the state convention of the
Greeters of America, to be held at '
Quincy, Aug. 23 and 24, is making a
strenuous effort to land the next stato '
meet In this city, and with that end
in view is striving to induce official
and prominent business men to extend
invitations to the hotel clerks, bidding
them welcome here.
At the national, convention In Chi
cago, early In July, Mr. Bertelson put
in some good work, agitating Rock
Island for the next state meet, and
.with the many amusement places
available here, and the combined at
tractions of the three cities, he hopes
to land the crowd for next year. The
bringing of this convention to the city
would mean that Rock Island would be
brought prominently to the attention
of the clerks and prominent hotel men
of the state, and consequently, hun
dreds of people would have Rock Is
land recommended to them as a desir
able city, and many additional tran
sients would bring their money here.
PROGRAM AT dl'ISCY.
The program announced for the
Quincy meet shows that the clerks
will be royally entertained as to
amusements. " Friday morning the
delegates will register at headquart
ers, the Hotel Newcomb. The ad
dress of welcome will be delivered by
Mayor Frank Garner. Business ses
sions will be held both morning and

and Sailors' home as guests of Colon
el Anderson after which they will re
pair to Hihgland park for supper. A
vaudeville program and dance has
been arranged for the evening.
Saturday morning the men will hold
another business session, while the
ladies will lock horns at the bridge
tables. In the afternoon the party
will take automobiles and bo treated
to a ride through the various parks
and boulevards of the city, also stop

A banquet at 7 o'clock in the even

.528 1 bre, who has been a member of the
509 company playing the Robert Hichens
406 iMary Anderson drama since the op'en
275 j ing day, was gladdened last season by
a cablegram announcing the appear
ance at Marseilles of an heir. Out of
compliment to Stage Director Freder
ick Stanhope, Monsieur Fabre recom
mended the name Freddo for the
youngster. George C. Tyler, while
touring Europe this summer, visited
the Fabres at Marseilles, and waa
much taken with the youngest of the
"You ought to make an actor of
him," suggested the manager.
"Will you give him an engagement?"
asked Mr. Fabre. Jokingly.
" will, indeed." answered Mr. Ty
Uer. promptly. "I ll tell you what I'll
do 1 11 pign him this very day for the
part of little Boris In 'The Garden of
Allah,' so he can be in the same com-
(ten;pany wifh h,s fatnpr- He can begin
im me sr-at-on 01 im, wnen he ll be
Mjr enough to run across the stage
into Domini's arms."
And just to prove he meant it, Mr.
Tyler put his name to a contract, and
so did Freddo, by proxy. .
I Mr. and Mrs. Fabre and the future
j Boris. Jr., will sail for New York
! shortly to be ready for the opening
j of "The Garden of Allah" at the Chi-
cago Auditorium, Labor day.
