AT OPERA HOUSE
Theda Bara \in the William Fox
super-production, "The Slirene's Song",
will feature the progrjim for Friday at

the joys of loving. After she has made
this supreme sacriflce she learns that
the mInister is a hypocrite and that
her spiritual regeneration made her
blind to her true love-the man she
"The Siren's Song," is a remarkable
