REXCOMMENCING SUNDAY.
Why Mary likes character parts.
"I'm thinking of playing a picture
practically all in character,"- ex-
plained Mary Pickford, "without
curls, without straight make-up and
in shabby clothes. It will be a char
acter on the order of Unity Blake in
Stella Maris,' but totally different.'
The sWeetheart ofrthe world curled
up in the] chair in her dressing room,
was discussing the United Artists'
production of "Suds," which wul be
seen at {he Rex on Sunday, and in
which she appears as the woebegone
little slavey in a laundry in the slums
of London who reconciles "herself to
the life she is living by her vivid
imagination and the mental pictures
of herself as the high and mighty
"liddy." i
"Do yotrknoW,"" she continued,

TrIE LAST BIG WAGE RAISE?
The railroad employees have done well to accept
the raise given them by the labor board. It may
not be as much as some claafis of them deserve,
view of present conditions in* t^eir industry and
I other industries but on the whole it looks fair to
them, an4 is also about as mugh as the public
i. which has to pay the billcan stand at this time.
uU brings up their means of living to about the
^average level, without unduly raising other people
eost of living.
4' Having accepted it, the men will continue to do
t^well if they wait to see what happens to wages.
and prices in general, before they set about getting
'another raise. ff
I The public hopes, without any animus against
the railroad employees or any other group o*work
ers, that this will be the last big wag* rawer
Granted that it virtually completes the general lift
4ng of wages to meet the present cost of/-living,
there isa natural feeling that it is time fcTstop.
.For if any considerable group of workers Js te
1'We another raise, all groups will havejto have an
other, to keep the thing uniform and maintain
equality with prices. And what good wonld that do?
For years now it has been a nip-and-tuck race
between wages and prices. When wages in general
go up, prices go up when prices go up, wages have
to go up to meet them. It is a quest for
mischievous "balance of power" which is not yet
so widely understood as it ought to be.
The railroad men particularly, because they are
so many and so powerful, and stand in such a
strategic and conspicuous position, should realize
how futile it would be to seek a duplication of
their present w*ge increase, because it would in
evitably increase the cost of living again for every
^body, including themselves, just when prices show
some signs of subsiding. _& A-*-
*'r
It'is time to.stop piling new weights on one
.^side and the other of the wages-and-prices scales.
And when workmen acquiesce, and standr-pt on
-wha justice they have gained, without trying to
i 'profiteer, tb*y can better combat whatever parlr
of high prices is due to capitalistic profiteering.
LAST OF THE GERMAN NAVY.'
A fleet of five German warships is en route to
the United States. It consists of one dreadnought,
'one armored cruiser and three destroyers,
dreadnought is coming under its own steam,
others are being towed. The cruiser was irrepar
'ably damaged by the Germans before it was sur
rendered, and the destroyers were sunk at Scapa
Flow afterwards. Jb
There is, needless to say, no menace in this fleet.
There is, however, a peculiar interest attending its
arrival. It represents the share of German surface
warships "allotted to the United
