WEGGENMAN'S

MYSTERIOUS
Local Militiamen Exercised
at Unaccountable Disap
pearance of Officer
HAS MANY ADMIRERS
IN STATE MILITIA
Missing Lieutenant Was In
spector of Bridgeporters :
During Encampment
William ' II. Weggenman, , second
lieutenant. Twelfth company, C. A.
C.,- U. S. A., is -still missing from : his
post at ' Fort HT: G. Wright, Fishrp
Island. N. Y.. and although a general
search for 1 him through army . and
Coast Artillery reserve channels in
the east has been Underway for sev
eral days, no -trace as to. his where
abouts has been - found! . Lieut. Weg-
genman was custodian of the post
exchange at Fort Wright and had
$3,400 of the funds of the post .under
his charge. This money, is -believed
to be on deposit in New London
banks but as yet the bankbooks have
not been found. : , -
Lieut. Wesgerman ' was ;, widely
known lo the officers .nd- men of
the Bridgeport Coast Artillery bat
talion."; The two mortar companies
of the Connecticut , corps are the
Fourth and Eleventh, both Bridgeport
organizations. Lieut. W&ggenman
was the emplacement instructing of
ficer during the past two summer en
campments. ( He was a favorite with
both officers and men and much sym
pathy is ' expressed for him. ,
Lieut. Weggenman, obtained leave
of absence for four days on Feb. 14
and- he immediately left tbe post,
presumably on a trip to visit his pa
rents at Wilmington, Del. Capt. John
T Terrell, post adjutant at Fort
Wright, said today that HO word had
yet been, received from the- missing
officer although he had already over
stayed his leave eight days. Oapt.
Terrell - admitted that' a search, for
the missing, officer was, being- Insti
tuted through all. eastern army posts,
hospitals, etc., but as yet no police
alarm has been sent . out for him. Z .
"'Lieut. Weggenman in addition to
his other duties was prison' 'Officer
at Fort Wright and some men who
had ; committed serious breaches of
discipline have been'' under" his
charge. ''',"'.- '' '';';'
His brother officers have three the
ories as to the cause of his disap
pearance. , One is that., he has met
with foul play "at the . hands of some
malefactor . who , has been under his
charge. Another is that. he has been
waylaid and robbed of the post ex
change money .of which it was known
he carried large sums, for .deposit in
New London banks. , A third theory
is that while suffering' from mental
aberration he has ' wandered off. ,
, Weggenman's army record is a most
excellent one and although but in the
service three years he was already in
line for promotion to a first lieuten
ancy. 7 .' ;.;v;. V ,:-'S j' -. ,,: '':'f - ,
Lieut. v"egrgenman was born-Oct.
10, 1880, and was graduated from
Delaware college, , Newark, . Del., in
1910, with a degree of B. S. . He was
commissioned Jan.- 22, 1912. , About
two years ago he was married to
Miss "Virginia LaForge, a civil en
gineer "stationed at Fisher's Island.
Miss Mildred , LaForge was - recently
married to -Capt. Claudius : Seaman,
formerly stationed at Fort'' Wright,
but lately transferred. I ." . -i," .
1 His wife was a former resident of
Waterbury. 1 Both Lieut. . Weggen
man's parents -. are wealthy. ; '.His
wife's parent are- wealthy -also, and
therefore his friends scout !the idea
that he was in financial difficulties or
short in bis accounts. v ' ,

Amusements
POLI'S
Stuart & Donahue, who occupy a
prominent spot in the current bill at
Poll's, are presenting -vhat critics
and patrons agree Js thei finest -variety
act of its kind . ever seen here. Mr.
Stuart is a wonderful eccentric danc
er, and his partner, Miss Stuart, is a
very ; versatile - - comedienne.- The
dance numbers of Mr.- Stuart are a
revelation and repeated encores are
his lot at every performance. .
This evening affords the last op
portunity to see this dainty offering
as well as the other big features, of
the bill. The Six Song Birds, clever
boys anad girls, presenting a pleasing
song revue, continue to be big fa
vorites, and Edna Luby and company,
offering a ludicrous sketch,- "The
Crucial Moment," are a- hit of the
program.- ' "
Fields Brothers, formerly with
Primrose and Dockstader,. are most
pleasing in their dances, and Bowers
and Saunders, two very pretty misses,
present a song repertoire of merit in
a happy way. 1 Soretti and Antoinette,
in a European pantomime novelty
that is very; funny, . complete the
vaudeville bill. - '
. The feature photoplay s "Children
of the Ghetto", a five part filmization
of Israel Zangwill's great play. Fea
tured in the cast for this production
is Wilton Lackaye, the eminent dra
matic star, and he! 'is ably support
ed by a big companly. ; The picture
is' of gripping interest throughout.
"Children of the Ghetto" will be
shown between the . vaudeville per
formances this evening, and there
will be other photoplays.
PLAZA
"The Hallowe'en Party," a musical
comedy in condensed form with a cast
of nine clever young people is holding
the headline "v position on the Plaza's
vaudeville program for the latter half
of the ' week and receiving an en
thusiastic reception at every presenta
tion. The act is full of life and color,
is handsomely, costumed and staged
with a wealth of special scenic effects
that add greatly to the attractiveness
of the piece., A chorus of pretty and
shapely girls go through a" series of
pleasing dance numbers and aid in
nutting over a well selected repertoire
of song hits. , 7 -
- Without "question the cleverest col
ored entertainers to appear in Bridge
port this season are Davis & Walker
who title their little offering '"A Les
son in Dancing" though the singing of
the female member of the act comes in
for some special credit, as well as the
very difficult and exceedingly pleasing
exhibition of soft-shoe dancing offer
ed by the male member of the duo.
: "The New Chef, is the way Spissell
Brothers & Mack term their offering
which is constructed simply for laugh-
creating; purposes. There are three
men and a woman in the act and the
knock-a-bout .work Is a treat.
The Bolger Brothers are doing then-
share toward making the bill a most
gratifying one from every viewpoint
in a tastily arranged banjo offering
that is far superior to anything of its
kind before presented locally.
E. Edward is also there with a
donation of mirth and artistic talent
in a silhouette act that holds interest
to the last. ,'. s.
-, The Keystone comedy, "Hearts and
Planets' is up to the, standard and
brings many a laugh while -"Mother
Hulda," in two , reels and "The Con
stable's Daughter" please. ,
LYRIC
Patrons, of the Lyrlo theatre attend
ing the performances of "A Woman's
Way" this week, havei. had a chance
to inspect the handsome prizes which
are to be given to the winning ba
bies in the big "Mother's Week" ba
by show at the. theatre during the
coming' week. A handsome $350 Ru
dolf, grand piano, a f irie sewing ma
chine, dozens of "gold bracelets, scores
01 line parior clocks, whole sets of
silverware, . babies' spoons, ' Laval-
lieres, and scores of other handsome
presents are displayed In the lobby
of the theatre, in order that the
mothers may have a chance to see
what , their babies are contesting for
next week.
That the baby show will -be one of
the biggest theatrical features . ever
pulled off in Bridgeport goes , with
out saying, more thanSOO "entries be
ing already listed :-. with Manager
Rich, who is superintending arrangements-
for : the big - event-. The play
itself next week, "Baby Mine," is
one which 7 will be sure to make a
hit with Bridgeport 'audiences. This
play ran for more than a year ta
New York, London, and Chicago and
is advertised as "-."tbe funniest play
ever written." '
, The attraction - at the Lyric this
evening will be '"A- Woman's Way"
and as - this evening's performance
will be- the final performance of the
week, it is expected that everv seat
in the -house will be taken for the
performance.
EMPIRE
"The Country Boy" a four nart
adaptation of Edgar Selwyn's most
successful play of the; same name
will be shown today for the last, time
in conjunction with , a number of
other first class entertaining sub
jects, at 'Keeney's Empire theatre.
The feature heading 'the program to
be offered Monday and Tuesday will
be "David Harum" a five part Fam
ous-Players Paramount feature
which can truly be. classed as a mas
terpiece. '.
William H. Crane' makes - his first
appearance in motion pictures in the
title role in this production. -Crane
enacts the screen portrayal with all
the art and dramatic power 7 that so
distinguished .it- on the 1 speaking
stage. There are moments .in the
play when the sheer beauty of the
emotions displayed are overpowering

comes only of simplicity and truth.
Mr.Crane repeats and even sur
passes the charm of his original char
acterization of David Harum. The
genial humor and sunny atmosphere

contrast with the exciting counter
feiter's plot that provides . the more
intense element of the play.

ment of the greatest of all , serial

Ella Hall and Robert Leonard will
be shown, together with the regular
