frenzied rehearsals, punctuated by
the usual tiffs between tempera
mental stars. A revival of '.Mon

rarely acted comedies of Moliere,
has already been offered to the pub
lic. and with signal success.
The taste for elaborate mountings
of plays, so long curtailed by the
war, has spread from the Comedie
Francaise to its sister subsidised
house, Odeon. There th* piece ae

Touched by Tribute.
Mr. Wilson was visibly touched.
To Mr. Gompers he said a simple
"Thank you." The crowd set up a
prolonged cheer at the ? veteran
labor leader's remarks through
which the former President waited,
smiling, but with his hands trem
bling with emotion.
Few, if any, in the crowd ex
pected that the former President
would speak when they left the
mass meeting. However, as the
cheering continued following Mr.
Gompers 'remarks, he raised his
hand to Indicate that he had some
thing'to say. and almost immedi
j ately quiet was restored.
1 Turning slightly in the direction
of Mr. Gompers. he expressed his
1 opinion regarding the present
j status of the league of nations and |
concluded by saying.
Vole* I* Strong.
"Mr. Gompers and my fellow citi
zens. I need hardly tell you how
much a demonstration of friend
ship and confidence makes me feel.
I thank you for all this. .1 do not
deserve it, but enjoy it neverthe
Although his voice was weak and
wavering when he addressed the
November 11 assembly, It was
stronger and clearer yesterday, I
despite a slight cold.
As his final words drifted back I
I over the crowd the demonstration
again broke forth with cheers for
"Mr. Wilson. America's America,"
[and "Long live Wood row Wilson."
Again the cheering broke forth
I when Mrs. Wilson, In response to
calls, stepped to the doorway. Then
:came the request that Mr Wilson]
| move to the edge of the porch s** j
[ that all might see him. He came
I forward, nodding and bowing her?
!ind there
"God bl?>ss you." said an elderly i
woman, so closr that he could hear, j
The crowd was still cheering when
| Gompers stepped forward and af
| ter saying- a word to Mr. W'lson
j announced: "The President wishes
you a very good night *
Itemaln at Hnnae.
Admirers of the former President
did not depart with his withdrawal
into the house. Several came for
ward to greet Mrs. Wilson. The
demand to see her became insistent,
j and In response she retired to a
second-story window, where she
waved to the audience.
In addressing Mr. Wilson. Mr.
Gompers told him that the people
had conve to wish him ^lealth,
strength and a long life."
"I have been asked to say a word
on this occasion," he began. "We
j have not failed to remember you,
sir, or failed In havjnir in our minds
?o address you as Mr. President."
"Lt Is not necessary now. g'r, to
refer to the purpose for which our
great gathering was called togeth
er." he continued, referring to the
mass meeting. "It was voluntary In
every respect.'Our hopes and acti
vities will be directed to have the
world understand the principles and j
ideals for which Woodrow Wilson j
lived, and which will go on>and on i
and In time will be recognized as j
the universal rile of all the world." '
Mr. Gompers then referred to the j
! league of nations with remarks slm.
I ilar to those which he had stirred j
the foundation meeting.
I Two boxes had been reserved for |
the Wilsons and their friend* at '
I the National Theater during the j
i meeting inaugurating the Wilson
Memorial Foundation. They d^
I clined to occupy them or to at
tend the meeting.
Charles Edward Russell, promi
j nent writer, presided over the
j gathering and outlined the purpose
[ of the fund, lauding Mr. Wilson for
his far-seeing vision.
More than a score of wounded
soldiers from Walter Reed Hospi
tal attended and occupied a re
served box directly to the left of
the stage.
On the left side of the stage a
large gold framed and flag-draoed
picture of the msn whom they j
were planning to honor, Woodrow
Wilson, was erected.
The greatest ovation of the af
i ternoon followed the declaration j
I by Mr. Gompers that "I have not j
I changed my view one dot, one Iota j
from the Justice of the covenant j
j of the league- of nations." Ap
plause lasted a minute and a half
| followed by cheering. Then finally
every person in the theater ro?e i
and cheered. A similar demonstra
tion followed the declaration by t
Mr. Gompers that "This gathering
I Is the first concrete demonstration
that Woodrow Wilson Is coming'
back. They have tried to crucify
[ him, they have wounded him. but |
, his spirit still lives."
