320,000 U. S. TROOPS ARE FIGHTING IN FOCH'S COUNTER DRIVE
seven divisions and one separate regiment Of the troops enumerated above, only
were participating, at latest reports, in the Franco-American offensive of the last two
weeks between the Aisne and the Sfarne.
The Forty-second, or Rainbow division, composed of National Guard troops from
twenty-six States and the District of Columbia, took part in holding the Germans in
the Champagne, east of Rheims.
The six other divisions?the First, Second, Third and Fourth of the regular army,
the Twenty-sixth National Guard division, from New England, and the Twenty-eighth
National Guard division, from Pennsylvania?fought in the great offensive between
Chateau Thierry and Rheims.
The separate regiment was one of negroes detached from the Ninety-third division,
which is composed entirely of negro troops.
The strength of each division being 27,000 men, in the fierce contest between Sois
sons and Chateau Thierry 162,000 American line troops were engaged. To this num
ber should be added the men of the supply service, about 18,000 to a division, or 108,
000 for the entire six divisions, making a grand total of 270,000 American troops en
gaged in the offensive. East of Rheims the Americans number more than 30,00a
An infantry regiment under the new battle organization consists of 3,605 men in
the ranks and 150 officers. To the total of the Rainbow division and the negro troops,
approximately 30,700 men should be added the divisional and regimental service of
supply units, about 20,000, making the strength of the American forces in the Cham
pagne about 50,000 men. This makes a grand total of 320,000 American combat and
supply troops who are fighting in the offensive.
SUNDAY THEATER OPENINGS.
Caal.o? mmaO-aaamm,
Supported by a well balancer! cant.
George Sl?-?oum and Harry Stratton
scored a bis hit in the opening per
formance of "In India" at the Ca
sino Theater yesterday afternoon.
Zallah. billed as the Ocrtrurle Hoff
man of burlesque, was a welcome
addition to the bill, her dances find
ins: great favor with the week's first
audience.
The Duquense Comedy Four, s
quart.t of merit, scored heavily in
an olio number. Their songs went
over faultlessly, several parodies on
th. Kaiser and his cohorts proving
particularly effective.
"In India." which Is the more In
teresting of the two burlcttas. de
picts an amusing situation in o ru
ler's harem, caused by the entrance*
of two American sailors into that
private stronghold. Slocum and
Stratton proved to be fully capable
of their roles In yesterday's opener.
Among the less advertised stars
of the cast. Florence Pointer was
the best. She sang "Chin Chin" with
a clearness not usually found in the
Oriental melodies. "Smile, You're
in Style." another song, went over
so big Miss Pointer was called hack
several times. This young actress
haa original charm and Is qualified
to accept a heavier part without
fear of her not being able to come
up to all requirements.
Sadie Devoy scored in several song
hits. Others whose songs were
liked were Mabel La Monice, Effle
Richardson and Mabel Davis.
I.oeoo*? Columhla?V? aliare ?eld.
"Less Than Kin,"' with Vvalace
Reid as the star, was the feature

a dual role and is admirable in both
the characters played by him.
The main role la a young New
Yorker. Lewis Vickers. who accl
dently kills a man and goes to Cen
tral America. Here he meets Robert
Lee, who bears a remarkable re
semblance to him. Lee is a worth

anxious to have him return to the
I'nited States. On his death bed Lee
turns his papers over to Vickers snd
beys him to assume his name.
Arriving in New York, Vickers
goes to the Lee home as Robert Lee,
and discovers that the dead man has

Includes a wife and two children and
a large collection of debts. He also
finds a beautiful adopted daughter
in the Lee household and promptly
falls In love with her. The only way
he can stand any chance of winning
the girl la by telling the truth about
himself.
The arrival of his undesirable fam
ily and several of its friends and
connections helps to bring out the
truth, snd ths picture ends with a
runaway marriage between Vickers
and the adopted dsughter.

I
season at Moore's Strand Theater ;
the first four days of this w-eek.
where the attraction of primary im
portance is "Her Moment." starring
Anna Luther.
Miss Luther is a young actress
who combines with a personality of J
rare charm exquisite blonde beauty j
and the happy faculty of register- j
ing every desired effect without ex
aggeration or over-emphasis. The j
role in which she makes her debut
as a delineator of serious character
is one of the most picturesque ever
conceived and constitutes the figure
of chief interest in Samuel H. Lon
don's remarkable silent drama.
Two young Rumanian lovers are
carried through a series of climac
teric event? by the utilization of jo
cales that measure the circumfer

The Moore theaters this week

tion of new screen stars who make
their debuts in photodramas of un
usual quality both as to plot and
production. At the Garden yester
day Edith Roberts'waa projected
for the first time as an Individual
star in a diverting Bluebird cam
era comedy entitled "The Deciding
Kiss,'" while Anna Luther was mak
ing friends at the Strand.
The story of "The Deciding Kiss"
embodies much that may be relied
upon to create Interest in the Ju
venile as well as the adult mind
Miss Roberts, who 1? not yet out
of her teens, is filmed in the role of
little orphsn of the Cape Cod
region who is given Into the affluent
control of a highly artificial New
York society butterfly who adopts
her to gratify a whim and to a de
gree mitigate the monotony of her
?latlHlsae life.
There are many humorous touches
thst are cleverly Introduced and the
photography 1? excellent. The pic

recognise this playhouse as having
been the house of burlesque for
years, it having been entirely re
modeled and redecorated.

Wataon's New Orientals.
Among the principals were George
W. Hilton and Leo Kendall who
have a way of their own of getting
over their points. Among the fe
male principela were Jennie Delma?

brought forward several encores on
their various numbers.
