COLISEUM—For the last time to night, ‘‘The Great Victory—Presi dent Wilson or the Kaiser,” show ing war history in the making of the most dramatic character. PALACE—Last time tonight to see “The Girl Alaska” along with the usual features. COLISEUM TO SHOW “GREAT VICTORY" FOR LAST TIME TONIGHT. A distinguished audience packed the Coliseum theatre yesterday to see the widely-heralded Screen Classics. Inc., super-feature, “The Great Vic tory. Wilson or the Kaiser? The Fall of the Hohenzollerns.” 'which was the big attraction, and to say that they received it with enthusiasm and ap preciation is to put it mildly. It will he seen for the last time tonight. When the first few scenes of the picture showed President Wilson, the idol of the nation, the house did him honor and it was with the sap.e amount of energy—though in an en tire'.y different manner of showing — that the flashes of the Kaiser were received. As the play progressed, depicting the many horrible. events for which the Prussian monarch is responsible, the feeling grew more intense, and when such incidents as the sinking of the LIsitania, the torpedoing ol' hospital ships loaded with wounded and dying and the terrible execution “of . the martyred Red Cross nurse. Edith Cavell, were shown, it was ns if the brutalities were happening be fore the eyes of those who gazed with bated breath on the vividness of the scenes. Very clover was the way In which the lives of the two most talked of men—Wilson and the Kaiser—were depicted, from their earliest infancy up to the present day. The birth of the royal infant—in state and pomp —his young life surTounded by all the restrictions of a servile court, his companions subservient and cringing from his earliest recollec tions, and who, as he grew older, learned to be cruel and hard to those who sought his favor, unruly and disobedient to those in authority over hint and with no love or res|>ect for anyone bu himself—gave a sharp contrast between the ideals instilled into the youth of the twa nations. Quickly turning from this unnatural and unwholesome state the scenes of the play takes the observer to the modest and comfortable home of the Wilsons to whom a son had just been born--a child looked for and wel comed Into I he world with a groat love—the idol of his companions and parents and with playmates of his own choosing -a. typical American home where the boy grows up to heapthy, happy manhood for the greater glory of his country. Words are Inadequate to describe the enthusiasm with which the pic-, ture was received and Its merit is enhanced by the number of stars— thirty in number—who play the lead ing roles In the production. This super-feature is the. work of Director Charles Miller under the personal supervision of Maxwell Karger, direc tor general of the Metro studios. Mr. Karger also wrote the story from which the play was adapted. AN AluASKA SUBJECT TAKEN IN ALASKA, SHOWN IN AN ALASKAN THEATRE. Surely Alaska progresses.

Miss Olive Tell, one of the most charming girls of the stage and one of the cleverest, probably had a harder time getting started than any other young professional of her ac quaintance, not been", 5 she couldn’t get engagements, but because of parental objections to her entering upon a stage career. Olive’s mother, a charming lady of a Victorian cast of thought, insisted that theatrical women were declasse, no matter how charming and brilliant they might be, and that only a very few like Ellen Terry had succeeded in making themselves superior to so cial prejudice against the theatre and its exponents. Miss Tell, who is starred in a new Mutual-Empire pri^duction, “The Un forseen.” at i»r.c persuaded her moth er to let her take a course fo in struction at the Sargent Dramatic School and after that by degrees won approval of her professional appear ance.
