At The Metropolitan
General interest will be created in
the announcement that "The Eagle's
Wings" will be presented at the Met
ropolitan theatre on May 6th and 7th
in Bluebird Photoplays. Aside from
the fact that this attraction is one of.
the besi photodramas ever screened,
there will be unusual concern in the
photographic exploitation of "Indus
trial Preparedness"—a topic that has
been widely discussed and is still
misunderstood by a large majority
of our citizens.
"The Kagle's Wings" is a non-polit
tcal, strictly American reflection of
economical and industrial prepared
ness for military emergency in time
of sudden and unexpected attack by
any other nation. While the world
war and its effect upon the great na
tion jnvolved was instrumental in
prompting the production, there is no
specific reference to any particular
nation a- opposed to the United States
—the sui ect is strictly neutral, and
absolutely pro-American.

Farmers in various portions of the
state, and particularly about Water
town, have been paying more and
more attention to the farm tractor as
an adjunct to farm work and as a con
venience, if not an actual necessity,
in getting the crops planted in time,
especially in a spring like the pres
ent and like that of a year ago.
This firm handles the celebrated
Gray tractor, conceded to be one, of
the greatest machines of its kln,d on
the market. Its wide drive wheel
makes its particularly adapted to soft
ground—that is to say, it can be op

house, all the available standing room
being occupied and many not being

^adge Sherwood briefly reviewed
the events, leading to the present con
troversy with "Germany. He charac

the United States as one of the most

He declared that the flghHtoday *iB

the war depends whether autocracy
or democracy shall be triumphant' in
the world's dealings as between na*

Other speakers of the evening were
Rev. Gay C. White of the Methodist
church, a son of a veteran of the-Civil
War, and Rev. P, E. Stockton, also a
Son of a veteran of the-same war.
Rev. Mr. White said that under
God we must fight. We can. no longer
be neutral. He said that he had en*
countered some difficulty in even try
ing to be neutral when he learned of
the rights of humanity that were be
ing trampled upon by those vrith
whom we must grapple.
Rev. Mr. Stockton likewise..averred
that we are in the war to stay until
the end and that our fight is one for
human rights against individual rights
