He haa labored strenuously for a post al entente between England and America a a sequel to the Imperial penny postage scheme. Mr. Austin Chamberlain has also been In sym pathy with the project and Lord Blyth has taken a hearty Interest In the policy of making America and England better neighbors.

"George M. Cohan's plienomcnal mu sical comedy success, "Little Johnny Jones," will coma to Elks' theater O tober 8. Probably no play with musli al en vironment has been vouchsafed the acclaim that has been ahowert d upjn this, perhaps the best piece of mu sical comedy writing that has yet em anated from the pen of this prolif e young author, composer and play wright, who, at the age of 23. haj tlx musical comedy hits to his credit. "Little Johnny Jones" Is a com bination of farce, comlo opera, melo drama and straight convdy. Several dramatlo reviewers have likened t t" a musical melodrama, but no matter In what class you place it, the fact remains that for the past two sausoui it has proven one of the b.st paying Investments that has b -en placed in the dramatic field for a decade. An) this Is as It should be, fnr of a sur. ty no funnier lines, more t tsc natinrf music, more Interesting love story or more laughable situations could he written, composed or devised than ore to be found In "Little Johnny Jones." Not only are the concerted and en semble numbers tunrful, but the twenty odd song with which Mr. Cohan haa punctured the three acts of the comedy are of that wtilstleabio kind, aptly described by ono reviewer as Cohunesjue. Nearly one hundred singing and dancing comedians and comediennes are enlisted la the presentation of "Littie Johnny Jones." They inciu le many of the players who have so ma terially assisted in the coiuinud uo cess of this famous Cohan comedy since it was first produced. Ttuu there Is the chorus, a regular Cohan chorus, that is fuil ot snap and "gan ger," and who are not on'y good 'O look upon, but who can really sing Add to this a scenic, electrical and costume Investiture that is elabora e to a degree and It is little wonder that "Little Johnny Jonas" Is atlU as potent a box office winner as t was in the first weeks of Its performance. 0S made MS- 12. 108, for tha Lots 1 and .NVt Stt NK14. and N a BVi NE Bectlon V.
