"Oldest Savins? Bank in Washington." WOUNDED MEN . POLI GUESTS Soldiers at the Walter Reed , Hospital Are Given a Treat. Tn .Its season run on Broadway the "Business Before Pleasure" Company may have played to distinguished in dividuals and before notable audi ences, but the special matinee per formance given at Poll's Theater yes terday afternoon for the amusement of nearly 500 wounded doughboys from Walter Reed Hospital will live] long in the memory of the talented cast of performers. Th? actors are mentioned particu larly because, from Barney Bernard and Alexander Carr. co-stars, down to the property boy, those behind the j footlights found an audience that wa? wot only appreciative and demonstra tive, but one before which they were proud to appear, which meant a fin ished performance where the con tinuous lauKht'T overshadowed any grim thoughts that the sight of the wounded heroes might arouse. , To the War Camp Community ? .Service goes the credit for an after- j noon of real enjoyment. The raen were transported from the hospital ? to th? theater in a fleet of automo- j bilea provided by Mrs. Charles J. , Bell, and the offldals of thia wel- | fare organization served as ushers aad distributed smokes and pro grams to the guests. Smoking in ; Poll's is an Innovation, but any thing that would add to the comfort and amusement of the soldiers "waa ; permitted, and King Nicotine ruled for this apeclal performance. There was a distinct military ap pearance to the audience and the ? gold service stripes that told of ac- j tive aervice overseas?many of them worn upon an empty sleeve?while ? scores hobbled about on crutches brought home the stern realization of war better than the moat graphic word picture. War Injurie* did not prevent these lads from enjoying thorough ly every minute of the sparkling comedy. The soldiers followed the fortunes of Abe Potash and Maw ruga Perlm-itter through the ups and downs of their moving picture Industry and punctuated every bright sally with thunderous ap plause. At the conclusion of the second act when the entire audience sat for a flashlight. Barney Bernard waa sighted behind the scenes and the din would not be quieted until Barney had been dragged out for a curtain speech. In it he voiced the appre ciation of his company for the privi lege of entertaining the soldiers and expressed the wish that they have a speedy recovery and a return to their homes and well-earned honors. Three cheers that indicated tne Hun gas had not injured any of their lungs greeted hie effort. nThey had a late supper at Walter Reed Hospital last ni?ht, but the cooks had kept the victuals warm, and when the automobiles drew up to the institution it was to unload sev eral hundred soldiers who voted "Business Before Pleasure" "a swell show." The theater was tastefully deco rated with the national colors, and credit for the smooth-running per formance must also be given to the stage hands, orchestra and other the ater attaches who volunteered >h*-ir services to make the afternoon :>ne of real fun for an audience Ot real American heroes.

ISLAND NAMED FOR LAYAYETTE New National Park on the Eastern Coast Created. Mount De?ert Ialand, upon the east coast of the Unltad State?. I? l.enAfortli to be known as Lafay jette National Park Announcement | to that effect was made yeeterday | by Secretary Lane of the Depart ! ment of the Interior. The new national park I? to em? ; brace lands once owned by Fran? e, land the name conferred upon it 1? meant to expre?? America'? deep I present ?ympathy with France a? | well as grateful appreciation of aid afforded to us by that nation in the ? past. Two years ago the land? now designated aa comprising the La fayette National Park were pro claimed by the President a? the Sieur de Mont? National Monu ment They constitute the domi nant and chief landscape part of Mount Desert island. The Ialand lt??lf was diacovcred by Champlain and for mere than a century wa? : a part of French Arcadia, e?tab !i??hed by De Mont? In 1*0? under a '? commission given to nlm by Henry of Navarre. Ill.taary ef lalaaat. Mount Deaert Ialand was the ?Ite in 1613 of the first French miaslon ary settlement In America, and later pas?ed by a royal gran? to Antoln? da la Mothe Cadillac, the founder at Detroit and the governor of Lou leiana. Passing afterward Into the hands first of the Province ami then of the Commonwealth of Mas sachusetts, that State deeded its eaatern half, wherein lie Bar Har bor and the higher mountain?, to the granddaughter of Cadillac and | her husband, French refugee?. This ( gift was moved by gratitude for | the assistance rendered by France1 to this nation In the war for Inde pendence, and from thi? grant pro- ? ceeded the title to the lands which the President two year? ago pro claimed a? a national monument. In Its memorandum accompany ing the announcement of the nam ing of the new national park the Interior Department ?ay?: "With the?e association? and It? own magnificent frontage on the great ocean highway which our troop? are traversing to France'? aid. and for whose freedom we are now contending, no more ?triking expression of national regard and amity could be conceived than the j creation under a name which has become a symbol of International friendship between America and France of our first eastern national . park. It will ?tand as a sign, ?et j up forever and visible to all the navies of the world, of that league ! of nations for which the President ? 1? wisely striving and from which alone true peace can come."
