Little Mary Pickford, who has been
called the Maude Adams of the "mov
ies," is going to. Europe soon to ap
pear in a series of foreign subjects,
in each of which she will depict a
different national type. Her tour wilj
embrace England, Ireland, Scotland,
Japan, Spain, Germany, France and
Italy.

MORE CONCESSIONS '
The union brickmakers council by
a majority vote last night agreed to
make no more concessions to the
brick trust and the strike will con
tinue indefinitely. This move may
cause one of the bitterest labor wars
ever staged in Chicago.
Following the announcement that
the union council had decided not to
accept their peace terms,- represen
tatives of the brick trust called a "hur
ried meeting and arranged for the
employment of strikebreakers.
The hitch in the plans came over
the refusal of the brickmakers to
grant the employers the right to dls- I
charge men indiscriminately.
The present trouble causes the
most serious situation in the build
ing industry ever faced in the city.
If the brick trust hires non-union
men all other trades unions employed
in the building line wfll probably walk
out on strike immediately.
Already $35,000,000 worth of build
ing work has been tied up. It is said
600,000 men may soon be-out of wdrk
as a result of the strike.

"WHAT INDEED?"
"What does a schoolmaster know
about war?" ask the conversational
ists. "What does a college professor
know about martial affairs?" We
h. no. b. for the Wilson policy not
for any war policy, for that matter
but what did George Washington, a
surveyor, know about war? What
did Abraham Lincoln, an uneducated
railsplitter, know about war? What
does Christy Mathewson, a checker
player, know about pitching? Hew
