Allied Premiers and League of
Nations Council to Meet
This Week.
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
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
The premiers have an important pro
gram before them. Some of the matters
which they probably will take up are the
1. The draft of a rejoinder to Hol
land, replying to the Dutch note re
fusing to surrender the ex-kaiser for
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
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.
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.
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.
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.

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
-|. -|- -!-
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
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
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.

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. ”

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,
ten of them college girls, and ten of
them show girl 6, and then bring on ten
“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.”
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
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. The British themselves naturally

Place Where Rites Were Ob
served Long Ago Described.
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

this forgotten episode of Homan
