LONDON STAGE SET TO RECEIVE WORLD DRAMA Allied Premiers and League of Nations Council to Meet This Week. MOMENTOUS QUESTIONS LONDON, Feb. o.—London will he the seat of momentous discussions on world problems this week, with practically all of the machinery of the peace conference transferred here from Paris. The “big three”—Premiers Lloyd George, MlUerand and Nitti—will meet on Wednesday, and on the same day the executive council of the league of na tions will go into session at St. James palace. Parliament will reconvene tomorrow after its long holiday and Premier Lloyd George is expected to make an epochal declaration on policy, touching upon the acute financial situation and the possi bility of opening negotiations with soviet Russia. IMPORTANT PROGRAM BEFORE PREMIERS. The premiers have an important pro gram before them. Some of the matters which they probably will take up are the following: 1. The draft of a rejoinder to Hol land, replying to the Dutch note re fusing to surrender the ex-kaiser for trial. 2. The serious new situation in allied-German relations created by the entente’s demand for more than 800 German military and officers of state for trial before a war-guilt court, 8. The Russian situation and the suggestion of the ambassadorial council that the decision to resume commercial relations between the al lies and Russia be reconsidered as a result of developments indicating that the soviet has gained control of the Russian co-operative societies. 4. The international financial and economic situation, involving the un precedented low exchange rates In the Fntted States and the question of American imports. 5. Problems Involved in the Turk ish settlement. 6. The Italian-Jugo-Slav contro versy over Flume. LEAGUE TO DEAL WITH ROUTINE QUESTIONS. According to expectations the execu tive council of the league of nations will deal only in well-defined problems which were settled in outline before the peace conference broke up in Pari-;. These Include the creation of an inter national court of justice; in the qvur tlon of international transit and sdeps to protect the publtf health In various countries. Definite Instructions for the commissions on Saar and Dantaig arc also to be worked out It has been reported from P,< rlin that Germany might present a petition for allied sanction to a union of Germany and Austria, but the council would be unable to act upon thl4 request even if It were made. In addition to the fact that neither Germany nor Austria is a member of the league of nations, the matter could not be considered exetmt in a full meeting of the league with a!- the members present. Since the premiers met last, soviet Russia has signed n peace treaty with Esthonia securing for Russia an outlet on the Ralfic sea at Reval. Poland is said to be seriously considering peace with the soviet regime, although, accord ing to word from Paris, the terms are to be submitted to the allies for approval before the Warsaw government signs up. PARLIAMENT ALSO FACES BIG PROBLEM. Big problems will face parliament when it convenes, some purely domestic and others of international scope. In addition to the acute exchange sit uation nnd the possibility of a Curtail ment of imports from America, the Irish problem is looming up more dangerously than ever. Labor is restive and the coal miners are pressing their demands upon the government with the threat of a strike in the background. British la bor is preparing to challenge Premier Lloyd George on his Russian policy, while a certain section of the press, no tably the Northcliffe newspapers, are again after the premier, accusing him of “wobbling.” Domestic politics probably will enter to some extent in parliamentary affairs for the next few weeks.

Katherine MacDonald in all her beauty is being seen this week at the Circdo theater in a picture, which is far superior to any in which this star has been seen. Perhaps it is because the role which has been given Miss Mac Donald 1 is better suited to her talents. She is a quiet sort of person, who would be absolutely im possible in a role that called for much violent action. She is very pretty and in this current attraction, "The Turning Point,” which was written by Robert W. Chambers, she lias every opportunity to 6how her beauty, as she wears some exquisite gowns. The story of “The Turning Point” tells of a young girl, who with her sister, seeks inexpensive quarters, that they might find employment and pay “for themselves.” The father’s firm has been wiped out financially and it is up to them to make their own way. They have had everything that money could buy, and are cultured and refined in every detail. Then comes the day when they are employed by a wealthy old person, who wants his children brought into so ciety in the proper manner/ They are professional entertainers and always this title Is hanging over their heads. The younger sister in time is courted by the son in the household, and the older one is deeply in love with the young man, who has gone into the profession with them, much against his sweetheart's wishes. The story is interesting and keep's the observer always on the alert, as a strange shadow runs wild through the plot. The scenes that are laid at the home on Long Island are beautiful, and the photog raphy is exceptionally good. Nigel Barrie plays opposite the star, and others in the cast are Leota Lorraine, Kenneth Harlan, Hedda Nova, William Mong, William Clifford and others. “The Turn ing Point” is the best offering seen at the Circle for some time. A two-reel comedy featuring Harold Lloyd and entitled “His Royal Slyness,” is shown. Harold still wears his specks and in this film he does Some of his most comical acting. The film Is a takeoff on “The Prisoner of Zenda.” An elaborate tableau in celebration of Americanization week Is shown, showing different persons representing the con ditions of today. A shadow of Abraham Lincoln is thrown on the background. This tableau was designed by S. Barrett McCormick and Frank Zimmer, the scenic artist of the Circle theater. Miss Ruth Chase is the soloist for the week. OHIO. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's poem, “Evangeline,” has been put Into mo tion picture, and is one of the most successful pieces of work in the way of picturlzatlon of American literature that has been seen for a mighty long time. This picture is only the begin ning of the filming of poems and surely this incident will bring many more to follow ’ Evangeline" is showing this en tire week at the Ohio. Miriam Cooper is seen in the title role of Evangeline, who is forever seek ing her sweetheart Gabriel, which role is played by Albert lies coo. The work of those two artists is possibly one of the real reasons for the excellent film. Most of ns know the story of the poem, which tells of the rural life of Aeu dians, and the picture closely follows each of the incidents in Longfellow's story. The plot tells of a bride and oridcgroom who were parted on their wedding day, not to lie united until they become old. Another film is being shown at. that theater this week, which is based upon the self-sacrifice of Abraham Lincoln. It is entitled "The Land of Opportunity,” and opens with a scene in a New York club, where successful men are seen dis cussing the present unrest. One of the men points out that people are class mad. Following the argument which takes place, they brand the man an agi tator. He is then brought face.to face with the spirit of Lincoln and the ex ample of his rise from a raiP splittei to President of the United States. A news film and a .Mutt and Jeff car toon are shown. -I- -!- -I MR. SMITH’S. E. K. Lincoln heads tiie cast jn “Desert Gold,” the pieturization of Zane Grey's novel by the same name, which is showing this week at Mr. Smith's. Western thrills are numerous and a pKis iug romance is introduced in an inter citing manner. The story tells of Dick Gale, who lias a mad career in the wild west. He runs into an old college chum down on the border and, with the aid of some cow boys, assists in rescuing his chum, Capt. Thorpe, and his sweetheart from a hand of outlaws, the leader of which is in love with the same girl. Dick and the cowboys take the girl to the home of .Tim Belding, a rancher, and Thorne re turns to duty. Some time later Thorpe is captured by Rojaz, while be is on his way to the home of the rancher, but In is saved by Balding's daughter and a faithful Indian, who Dick has saved at one time. The bandits are routed and everything is straightened out. The love affairs are brought about in a most pleas ing manner and the ending is quite sat isfactory. In the cast, Eileen Percy, Margery Wilson, Edward Coxen, Walter Long, W. Dawson Butt, Russel Simpson and Arthur Morrison are found. The bill is completed by a comedy-and a news reel. -|. -|- -!- ALHAMBRA. Typical Wallace Reid comedy Is fur nished that star in “Double Speed,” which is showing the first half of this week at the Alhambra. Surely this story and picture were created just for Wally as it fairly breathes with material, for which this star is capable of turning into real mirth. In the story he is known in New York as one of the wealthy young chaps, who has everything he wants. He grows tired of the same routine in that great metro polis and decides to go on a cross-con tinent tour In his automobile, which, of course, is of the snappy and speedy type. He gets along famously with his trip until he strikes a western desert. He takes out his special camping equip ment,/which is of the best and which has 6very convenience imaginable, and prepares for the night. Just about the time our hero gets settled along comes a group of bandits and away they go with everything, from the tourist’s shoes to his automobile and camping outfit. All that is left him is his silk pajamas in which he is clad. He starts out next morning to find some clothes and a town from which he might wire for more money. He final ly meets some kind hearted travelers who furnish him with clothing and he gets in touch with his family in New York by wire, but before this turn he has a terrible time convincing the banking concern who he is—he has no creden tials. There is a love story connected with the play, of course, which is unusually clever, and the film ends such as all good films should. A Fox news reel and a comedy complete the bill. -i- -i ---isis. Francelie Billington does some fine emotional acting in “The Day She Paid,” which is being featured the first half of this week at the Isis. She is first seen as a mannequin in a woman's apparel shop, where she meets one of her em ployer's best customers. He proposes to her and within a short time they arc married. She makes au ideal mother to his two daughters and loves her husband and beautiful home. And then one day her former employer comes to their home for dinner, where he meets the eldest daughter and makes love to her. The stepmother then stands in tne way of the two becoming better acquainted, declaring that she knows the man to be of no account. She does nto convince the father of this, however, until she tells him that he has been the man who ruined her life. She is then turned from her home, and not until unusual things take place does everything come out all right. Charles Clary plays opposite Miss Bil liugton. Tad Dolan's novelty entertainers furnish the music accompaniments. Noted Hunter of Big Game Dies in Ohio CLEVELAND, Feb. 9. Araaza S.

FARM VOTE FOR LOWDEN, CLAIM Campaign Manager Here Says Governor’s One of ’Em. WASHINGTON, Feb. 9.—Gov. Frank O. Lowden of Illinois will receive the farmer vote for the presidency, In the opinion of Representative Frank L. Smith, his manager here. “Gov. Lowden enjoys the confidence of the farmers of the west,” Representative Smith said. “Gov. Lowden has been one of them in life and language, having been reared on a farm in lowa, and be ing himself, at this time, the owner of one of the model farms of the country, in Illinois. “When Gov. Lowden first entered Illi nois politics he had some difficulty in convincing his rivals for office that he was a real farmer,” Col. Smith continued. “In 1904, when he was a candidate for governor of Illinois, he was charged with ‘gum-shoeing’ the country districts in felt boots and smoking a corncob pipe to catch the farmers’ vote. Gov. Lowden met the charge by saying: “ ‘lt. is true—ln part. I did wear felt boots. Getting out of my sleigh in one little town Isa wa pair of felt boots In a store window. I went In and pur chased them for $2.50, put them on, and wore them. And right here, my friends, I tell you that a man who has not sense enough to wear felt boots in zero, bliz zard weather hasen’t sense enough to be governor of Illinois.’ “On another campaign tour in Illinois an opponent of Gov. Lowden shouted in (tie midst of a speech: ’Frank O. Low den says he is a farmer, but who in Sam Hill ever saw LoWden milk a cow?’ “‘I did not know,’ retorted the gov ernor, ‘that the constitution requires the governor of this state to possess the ability to milk cows, but If this gov ernorship campaign is to be thrashed out .along these lines, I hereby challenge all who aspire to that lfigh office to an open, free for all, public c.w milking contest down on my farm In Ogle county, and r hereby agree to abide by that result. ” U. si.

Better Than College Girl Anyway, Coryphee Avers. NEW YORK, Feb. 6.—When President S. M. Carey Thomas of Bryn Mawr col lege said In a recent address that col lege girls made better wives than show' girls, she started something. “Pooh, pooh,” says Memphis Russell of the chorus of Arthur Hammerstein’s “Always Yon.” “So the lady thinks col lege girls make better wives than show girls. i’d like to line up twenty girls, I DON ’T SET A X' ten of them college girls, and ten of them show girl 6, and then bring on ten Johnnies. “It would We pretty soft for me if I had my end of the bet down on the Chorus girls, for it would only be a short time until the men were all on one side of the room and they wouldn’t be on the side with the college girls either. “Can a college girl cook? Can a col lege girl sew? Can a college girl econo mize? Not many of them. They're so busy lehrnlng about Plato, and atoms, and equal suffrage that they forget to learn other things. “Chorus girls are picked for the things that men look for, good looks, grace, and personality. And that’s why men pick ’em out. And the show girl knows iren, knows what they like, and further more, when she finds a good one she hangs on to Miu. “And so,” says Memphis Russell, “you can say for me that what I’rexy Thomas told those girls at Bryn Mawr may be interesting, especially to them, bat I don’t believe it’B true.” CLEARING MINE FIELD BIG JOB 16,600 Englishmen Alone En gaged in Work on Seas. LONDON, Feb. 9—The subject of mines and mine fields was naturally a very live one for all those who had to do any Journeying by sea during the war, as well as for the belligerent naval forces and the soldiers passing between the various theaters of war. Many were the speculations as to the number of mines which had been laid by one side or the other and there was more than curiosity as to whether these mines would constitute a recurring danger to navigation, even after hostilities had ceased. The statement which was recently Is sued by the first lord of the admiralty explanatory of the navy estimates for 1919-20 had an interesting paragraph on the subject of mine clearance, from which it appears that no fewer than 1,360 mine fields or groups of mines were laid by the Germans in proximity to the British coast. Altogether the=o mine fields represented some 11,000 mines, about 90 per cent of which were laid by submarines. Abroad sixty fields were laid, totaling some 1,200 mines, and ot these 60 per cent were laid by submx rlues.

ROME, Italy, Feb. 9.—A religious dis covery, but of a pagan kind, was found some time ago under the railway em bankment a few hundred yards outside the Porta Magglore. It consists of a vestibule elaborately decorated with mythological subjects, such as Jason tak ing the Golden Fleece, the punishment of Marsyas by Apollo, the story of the Danaids, the liberation of Aeson and a troop of Moenads riding on panthers. It is conjectured that this vestibule was a place where, in the early decades of the first century of our era, mystic rites were celebrated. Indeed, it is sup posed that this was the exact locality of an historical event, described by Tacitus in the twelfth book of his “Annals” as having happened in 53 A. D., during the reign of Claudius. The historian relates how Agrippina, mother of the future Emperor Nero, coveted the gardens of T. Statllius Taurus, who had been consul a few years earlier and governor of Africa, and how she improvised an ac cusation against him through a certain Tarquitius Prlscus of practldn mystic rites. Stathius pated his trial, and now, nearly centuries later, an accidental land the railway bay led to the this forgotten episode of Homan To Probe Charges of Grain Farmers WASHINGTON, Feb. 9.—An investiga tion of the alleged refusal of Federal Reserve banks to extend loans to grain farmers was provided in a resolution sponsored by Senator Gronna, republican, of North Dakota, and adopted unani mously by the senate this afternoon.
