STATE CONTINUES EmuMcum Montana's Quota in Reserve Service Filled, bat Work Will Go On. SKILLED MEN WANTED Will Be Available for Gov ernment Employment in Case of Emergency. Great Falls, March 1.—Montana will supply the desired number of skilled mechanics for government work, Judg ing from the enrollments in the U. 8. public service reserve. There has been n hearty response to the appeal for »kilted workmen for the shipbuilding program, according to information In the office of Scott Leavitt, state di rector of the reserve. Enrollment of the trained workmen t of tt|e state, however, will continue that men may be available for any of the on the call which may come for government work. All branches of the government are uniting in using this branch of the department of labor as the common organ for recruiting men. The public sorvlce reserve is now listing men willing to enter the essential war In dustries when called and to serve on railroads, in munition plants and In the divisions of the army which re quire skilled mechanics. Anyone who enrolls may indicate on his card what kind of work he prefers. Aid to Employons. Employers of labor, even In so called unessential Industries, will be helped by the success of the public service reserve, because a large regis tration will make It possible to make a fair distribution of all calls foj> men, and to minimize and equalize thé drain on Industry which results from unreg ulated competition for men between war industries and different brandies of the government. Labor is In entire sympathy with the purpose of tlie de partment. in creating this reserve, be cause It will help prevent the great hardships which fall upon working men by having no certain way of knowing whether or w r hcre there may be a place for them in shipyards or In munition plants, and because of the absence of any compulsory features. Men who enroll In the reserve will lie called as soon as there is need for them. Enrollment Continues. m • <m ** *"* Tf it Is possible the government does not want to employ men other than those who arc not employed In other work. Many of the men who have enrolled In the reserve, however, aEe those who, out of employment, change their addresses often with the result that there will lie a varying percen tage of them with whom the reserve can get In touch when they are wanted. To insure a supply of work men for all calls the agents of the re serve in Montana are continuing tlieir efforts to increase the enrollment, not only of the unemployed mflt but also of the men now employed but who will, when the need comes, be willing to enter the essential government work. SOUSA NOT WORST PIANIST. John I'hilip Kousa characterizes as inaccurate a statement that, he is the worst pianist among composers. "From information I received some years ago from Anton Schott, the Wagnerian tenor, I am not the worst composer-pianist," writes Mr. Sousa. "Schott told me that Wagner could play even worse than 1 can. It Is hard to believe this, but Schott was a truthful man and he knew tho great Richard intimately.

Empress—"The Son of Democ racy," first story, and Paulino Fredericks in "Mrs. Dane's De fense." Bijou—Valeska Surratt In "She." Isis—Charlies Chaplin in "The Floorwalker." All Tastes Suitsd « in Today's Bills. No matter what your taste» may be, today's moving picture hills will sat isfy them. Charlie Chaplin Is rer forming his usual antics at the Isis In "The Floorwalker." which is sure to please the Chaplin fans, even though It has been shown here before. At the Bijou Miss Valeska Surratt will please lovers of the panting or emotional drama with her version of Rider Hag tgard's "She." Miss Pauline Fredericks and the Ben Chapin company are at the Empress, the one with a modern English drama by Arthur Henry Jones;' the other with a ehnpter from the life of Abraham Lincoln. Pauline Frederick« in Stirring Play, The program at the Empress is made Well worth while by Pauline Fred ericks' presentation of "Mrs. IVatie's Defense." a modern drama by Arthur Henry Jones. The play is a new treatment of a social tragedy which has Interested Jones before the trag edy of the. young, unmarried mother who tiles to start life anew behind a barricade of lies. The situation closely resembles that upon which Jones built "The Lie." and moves Inexorably to an end similar to that of the other play. The conclusion is a smug British dem onstration that "honesty is the best policy," but the playwright and the star leave several ugly truths visible through the apparently satisfactory whitewash. Pauline Fredericks plays the part of the girl whose unfortunate affair with the husband of her employer brings tragedy into half a dozen lives. She Is not very convincing us the young girl of the prologue, but as the unmar ried mother she"is quite all that could be asked.

Ill Missoula Theater YOU ARK CORDIALLY INVITED to the shelter of a rich relative's home. Tho rich retativo presently dies con veniently and leuves the refugee a for tune. With money the young mother goes to England, posing as a widow. She has just attached the somewhat fickle affections of an aristocratic youngster when she is recognized. Melodramatic complications follow. The woman meets them with lies, but is exposed. The close (mlrabilc dlctu: and end ing without a "clinch"), finds the moth er seeking solace In caring for her •hild. It is a good picture. Lincoln'« Boyhood Presented on Screen. The producers of "The Soil of De mocracy" have seen fit lo improve upon history to some extent in adapt ing the life of Abrahsm Lincoln to the high purposes of flic motion picture. The first story of tho series covering Lincoln's life, which was shown et the CmprcKt» yesterday and will be repeat ed today, is more picturesque than ac curate. Nancy Hanks Lincoln, the (knorant but high-uiinded froiitlers wpman, appears-on > the screen as a charming movie actress made up for the part. Wilderness life 1ms not Roughened her delicate beauty or hard ened her manicured hands. Sinee. im proved by the movies, she 1ms added a facile handwriting t" the slight knowl edge of reading which was her only ac complishment In 18J,1. However, the question of details aside, the picture does show in an ef S-etlve wjiy, J lip nature of Abraham Lincoln's boyhood and the quality of the maternal Influence to which he later gave credit for his rise to 'prom inence. It Is an Interesting, though short and made-over picture. Charlie and Valeska in Typical Rotes. ? To comment upon. "The Floorwalk er." which Is the headliner at thp Isis, 0r upon "She." which is the Bijou's offering, would be. to waste white paper. If von like t'harlle Chaplin (and who does not?) you will like "The Floorwalker." If you like Valeska Surratt (and who does?) you will like ■'She." Both pictures arc Just what fbreknowledgc ot the stars should lead one to expect.
