Soldiers at the Walter Reed
, Hospital Are Given
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
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
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
The theater was tastefully deco
rated with the national colors, and
credit for the smooth-running per

THERE is no secret in an ?deal tire. All
formulas, all methods are well known.
A perfect tire is simply a question of
care and skill and cost.
In every tire factory the great question is,
"How much can we give for the money?"
The Brunswick idea is
to give all that is possible
?all that anyone gives?
all that any cost can-buy.
We know of no better tire
to offer you. .And we
know them all.
The Brunswick hat met
with a great welcome
among our customers.
Every user is enthusiastic.
t One Brunswick will show
you its merits.

New National Park on the
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
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
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."
