Henceforth Mollere's station will be 63
West Thirty-fifth street.
The reception to M. Copeau was at
tho Metropolian Opera House, and the
hosts wcro the directors of the French
Theatre. Robert Ooelet, Otto H. Kahn,
Theodore Roosevelt, Jr.. Nicholas Mur
ry Butler, Paul P. Cravnth, Arthur
Jselln. Cornelius Vanderbllt, Henry
Rogers Wlnthrop, J.imes V. Harney nnd
William Adams Delano, Not all of them
could be there, but Dr. Hutler came to
Introduce M. Copeau, and Mr. Kahn to
represent the boatd. Assisting 'in the re
ception were the member of the
women's council, Mrs Gertrude Athcr
ton. Mrs. August Helmont. -Mrs. Cail
walader Jones, Mrs. J. West Hoosove!-.,
Miss lila Tarhell, Mrs. Kgerton Wln
throp, Mrs. W. K. Vanderbllt, Mrs.
Harry Payne Whitney and Mrs. Philip
Lydtg, the chairman.
1'or French Cnltnrr,
"I would not be here," M. Copeau
told his friends, "were It not that I am
serving France In all sincerity. I do not
wish, as so many managers have done,
to carry out u money making tour of
tho United States, hut to creitc n liv
ing centre of French culture. The French
Government ststt me hero to discredit
the reputation for frivolity which our
French stage has obtained. I came In
the llrst place only to gle n few lec
tures, not seeking to take any one's
place; but 1 met Mr. Kahn. he offered
mo the directorship of the French The
atre, and after retlcctlon. realizing the
love of your people for Fr.tnce, I re
solved to accept.
"Believe It not If you arc told that we
will perform only sad classic plays. I
will give you every kind of play save
the gioss and vulgar. Classics, farce,
pantomime and modern comedy shall
pass before your eyes, and you will see
that French writers can deal with some
thing besides the eternal triangle."
M. Copeau told the story of the The
atre du Vleux Colomhler III I'.ir's how i
ne ana a group or young artists founded
It In October, 1013, how they strove to
maintain a free, disinterested stage;
representing modern France, us well as
Riving Interpretation to the classical
repertoire: how they had simplified scen
ery, thus cutting down CApentcs and
centring the attention of the audience
on the play Itself, and how they had
suppressed so-called stars, working In
stead for a well rounded company of
modest artists, each feeling his depend
ency on the whole
Augustus Thomas made a brief speech.
In which ho pointed out that the war
made this a particularly auspicious time
for the forming of a new bond between
France and America.
"And New York is not blind to the
things of the lisjon. t-he Is yearning for
them," he said. "Witness the success
of such plays as dlarrle's 'Cinderella.'
and 'Deter Ibbetson,' New Tork Is
thirtsy for hcauty and for Idealism."
Telegrams of congratulation were read
from Ambassador Jusserand and M.
fialimlcr. Minister of the Beaux Arts.

A man who saw an Arnheim $25 suit on a prosperous
business man a few days ago commented on the style, fit
and particularly on the material. Then he asked where he
could secure a suit like it.
When told what the suit cost and where one like it
could be bought he determined to come in and look.
Today he is just one more satisfied customer added to
our list of thousands of patrons who arc' too sensible to
ignore good clothes because they are reasonably pnecd.
Our $25 assortment includes serges, finished and un
