Prof. Maiorana Would Upset
Known Laws of Physics.
Rome, Oct. 26 (delayed). Newton's
ineory ot gravitation has .been attacked
by Prof. Maiorana, who, speaking before
a gathering of prominent scientists here,
declared to-day the results of experi
ments he has p-rform'd upt tho hith
erto accepted laws of physics governing
the motions of celestial bodies.
Newton's theory, while hitherto con
sidered absolute, la only an approximate
hypothesis, according to Prof. Maiorana,
who supports thla assertion b)1 showing
that a ball of lead floating In mercury
becomes slightly lighter.
From this the profetror deduces four
First, that bodies have both a true
and npparent mass, tho truo mass of
the sun being double the apparent maso.
Second, that the stars attract other
Dodlea with forces entirely different
from those thus far admitted to exist.
Third, thot tho solar heat of stars Is
generated by the force of gravitation
emanating from Interior Btrata. From
this he argues the solar system has had
an Immensely longer life than has been
believed by scientists up to the present.

Without consclousty striving to do so
"Buddies," the comedy with music, In

They come from regions ns wide apart

And In working out this episode In the
career of these nine "buddies," particu
larly nR it afTects two of them and the
winsome daughter of the household, the
author has made n melting pot of his
play, so that It Just bubbles over. He
has dropped into it spontaneous comedy,
unforced jiathos, an clement ot melo
drama, some horseplay, a hit of mysti
cism, a flavoring of love making and a
eplce of scandal, and H. C. Hllllam has
ndded a dash of music enough to whet
the appetite for more. With n trio of
such adept stara ns Donald Brian,
I eggy Wood and Roland Young to keep
things stirring, a mixture la brewed that
has more than the current 2.75 vitality,
and that only a prohibition law could
keep from success.
Judging by this play, the chief oe-n-
pation of the army of occupation was
making lovo to the available supply of

Don't forget that no other car in the

that it obtains its great power

The comedy Is charmingly done In a key
of naturalness, and though it's a war

It from getting on any one's nerves.
Much Delightful llnalnenn.
There are many bits of delightful busi
ness between Donald Brian and Roland
Young, as when Brian shows Young how
to mako love, and the two soldiers fight
a duel over Julie with boxing gloves.
Peggy Wood also" has a diverting scene
with Young when she tries to hound him
Into declaring himself and nearly
scares him to death.
It's almost Indecent In such a pleasant
entertainment to point out the flaws, but
one must do one's duty by the public.
It's hard to believe that a girl would
make such sacrifices for the good name
of n dead brother but then the French
are forever doing the unexpected, as the
Germans can testify. The Jokes about
Brooklyn are nbundant, but If Miss
Wood, who comes from Brooklyn her
self, can stand them probably the pub
lic can. Jiathcr unusual is It to find a
sergeant in command of a squad and
one that treats him as a brother and nn
equal but nt any rate, they drilled like
a real squad.

Ixing Trail," has Introduced It In a fast,
skilful parody of this number, which
Brian and the others sang with tho rapid
Are gusto of regular Y. M. C. A. en
tertainers. Another number with which
they drew salvos of applause from the
captivated spectators was tho mock pro

was another ditty the onlookers quickly
learned to love.
Miss Wood's acting was Ideal for the
part, bMnp simpler and more sincere
than ever, and hor voice, more robust
than In "Maytlme," Imposed no tAx on
the auditor except the war tax. Roland
Young displayed a penetrating comedy
touch, and Donald Brian's performance
was tho best he has ever done In fact,
tho only Jarrjng note nbout him was a
green ribbon on his puttees. He did a
short dance, and triumphed over his

ay.o were united last night In the causa
of art reunited, however, since this is
not the first time the actor has been
engaged In he Interpretation of the
dramatist. Appropriately enough, It was
In what the youngsters like to call the
palmy days of the drama that this co
operation used to occur or nt nil events
In the A. M. Palmer days. So there
was nothing strange In finding theso two
notables of the American theatre to
gether, although It was surprising to
observe that they had been united by
Arthur Hopkins. Quo va-t-ll falro dans
Mr. Hopkins Is In the American thea
tre all there Is of the most modem
Hplrlt. He Is tho anointed who Is to
lead the drama out of Its bondage to
Belaivo and everybody else. Neither is
Mr. Lackaye an actor nor Mr. Thomas a
dramatist of his school; at least they
were never thought to be until la3t
night, when the names of tho Trinity ap
peared on the progrnmmo of the Play
house. The audience wondered as It
Piny of the Old I)ny.
There seemed an undeniable appro
priateness In the name of tho play when
the first act passed In n mining camp
the old familiar mining camp of the
theatre. This was In the period of Cali
fornia's gold craze and .there was "of
course the appropriate Investiture of the
period. They wore all there before the
bar, all our old friends of the same time
and place. After a while came the
Itlnterant troupe to entertain them, the
blackface father, the tired mother and
then the fairy daughter wtui had wan
dered from one camp to another leaving
a trail of hearts behind her. And there
was a show In the barroom with the
miners and the Indians on the floor be
fore the poor little entertainment which
had only tho pretty young girl In her
ballet skirt to add any kind of lustre
This was all undeniably palmy and so
was the final revelation that the girl was
the daughter of tho miner's former wife,
who had been nn netor's "dresser' but
dwelt now among tho men who took
most Interest In his quotations from
Bhnkestpeare and other familiar indul
gences of the 'school of his day. Her
mother the actress, who had wandered
Into tho camp, had left 'the man now n
miner for the love of a tragedian who
was very- frankly named in tho drama
as the destroyer of the family happiness.
An Ivor- painting which he' car d ih
his pocket was of the .girl's mother, al
though Its resemblance to the little star
of the mining camp barrooms led his
comrades to believe that ho, too, had
been a secret admirer of the girl.

Mr. Thomas said, In a curtain speech
after tho second act that he had written
the piece after seeing Mr Lacknyo play
Just such a role in a club performance.
The progress of the Btory Is languid and
Mr. Thomas's dialogue, ns well ns the
little attention to the dramatic situa
Hons, suggest the dramatist's style in
The records made by the Super-Sb
were possible only because of its
patented motor. It enabled the Hudson
to maintain close to its maximum speed
for hours, even days as in one test,
without hammering itself to pieces.
Now Note How Hudson
Is Even Greater
Hudson records were made more than
three years ago. Then 60,000 Super
Sixes were distributed to owners. Every,
one became a help in making the present
model a finer, better Hudson, of which
100 are delivered daily. The qualitiej
of every detail were brought up tc
match the motor,, that had reached s
new high level of efficiency.
AH men seem to know this. For foui
years Hudson has been the largest sell
ing fine car. Practically every buyer hat
hadtowaitfordelivery. Even now we art
booking; orders for advance delivery.
That men will wait to get the car of theii
choice is proof of Hudson quality. WhaJ
greater testimonial can there be?
"Alabama." "In Mlxioura," and similar
studies of type written long ago. The
general atmosphere of the piece is
agreeable, the pictures of Western life
are ot course not new. but they are free
from unduo exaggeration, and there Is a
mellow charm to the genernl representa
tion. Tho skill of Arthur Hopkins Is possi
bly to bo seen in his ability to keep the
action' free from the usual grotesque
ness ot Western lite, but credit for this
result must nlso go to Mr. Thomas, who
is named on the programme as the man
who "staged" tho work. Hollo Peters

Mr. Lackaye is sn artist of experi
ence and he Is, above all, an actor's

much ot his portrayal of tho old man
who had been so close to the stage dur
ing twelve years of his life, but had
finally drifted Into such unusual milieu
as a mining camp and loves to sprinkle
his talk with quotations from snapes-
penre. Yet his Incorrigible theatrlcallsm
could not alwnys be suppressed. Gene

open eyed, smiling girlhood, embodied
In a graceful and slender figure. Her
voice is not only delightful to hear but
there is a wealth ot eloquence In her

her previous appearances. George Le

Applaml Reminiscences of tho
Colonel Jlolntcd ly Sttito
Roosevelt day, celebrated yesterday
at the second lecture In tho course of
six arranged by the Republican Women's
State Executive Committee "for the edu
cation of the woman voter," brought a
large audience to the .National Republi
can Club, 64 Wes Fortieth street. Fred
erick Me Davenport, state Senator and
member of the faculty of Hamilton Col
uege, made a speech rich in reminis
cences of tho Colonel, side by sldo with
whom he went tnto tho wlldnerness on
the great bull moose hunt.
Senator Davenport declared that this
continent had produced two remarkable
phenomena, Niagara Falls and Teddy
Roosevelt. "His vision always out
stepped that of his followers." the
speaker said. "That Is why he had so
many enemies" Roosevelt, he said,
would bo In favor of the League of
Nations, but with reservations. "He
would be In sympathy with the group
of men In the Senate who are backing
the reservations. He believed that
America must taka a greater part tn
International matters, but he was flrsfH
and alwnys for the integrity oi nis
"Roosevelt would permit neither capi
tal nor labor to dominate the Govern
ment. Ho believed that nothing was
superior to the Government of the Amor
lean people. He was a great man, a
"One evidence of his prophetic vision
wnB that when, as Assistant Secretary of
the Navy he read a report made by a
young gunner named Sims, which dwelt
on the need of stralghter shooting and
more accuracy In the navy, he thereafter
promoted the writer of that report at
every opportunity. He was probably
tho first man to recognize the ability of
the seaman who was to lead our navy
In the great war. In the same way he
picked out Pershing and pushed him
Senator Davenport wound up with
stories of Roosevelt's daring deeds In
the West such as the one ot his being
told at dinner in some mining camp
that a certain bad man who had killed
three meh had sworn to slay him;
whereupon tho Colonel picked up his
hat. rode out to the bad man's abode
and Invited him to shoot. The bad man
said he hod been misquoted. The stories
tickled the women who crowded the sec
ond floor of the club, and they applauded
again and again.
The lecture next Monday will be nt
the same time and place. A committee
headed by Mrs. Arthur L. Llvermore
and Mrs. Walter Damrosch Is In charge
of the course, which Is proving beyond
nil hopes of the promoters that women
voters do want to be educated.
Will O.K. This Car
FOR this Post -War Maxwell contains all those
fine traits of its 300,000 predecessors.
And in addition the great developments in
engine, axle and chassis which the war brought.
But these 300,000 will vouch for its ability, for
they have seen their own cars pile up endless mile
age, outrun a guarantee on a tire, shy at the repair
shop, and go where most other cars wouldn't follow.
They know, too, how thrifty it will prove on
gas, how it will please both Son and Grandma in
performance and comfort
To say that they will O. K. this car is wasting
words, for it is of the very same chassis model as
the 300,000 others.
5 It's worth an hour of any man's time to look
over the Post -War features, note what fine engi
neering has accomplished, and observe what big
improvements have been made in appearance.
The price, however, is still $985. The extra
values are yours.
