"FASCINATION" AT GRAND
THEATRE NEXT SUNDAY
When Mae Murray in "Fascina
tion", presented by Robert Z. Leon
ard, comes to the Grand theatre on
Sunday, the popular Metro star will
be supported by a company of play
ers, several of whom have them
selves starred *on Broadway. It is
__ without doubt one of the strongest
casts that has ever been assembled
in motion pictures.
Among this distinguished company
is Helen Ware, Vincent Coleman,
Conrtenay Foote Creighton Hale,
Charles Lane and Robert Frazer
Miss Murray herself1
plays a girl
who revolts against the rigidity of
her home life, runs off to a bull
fight, becomes fascinated by a hand
some toreador and is involved a
'series of stirring adventures,
Larry Semon will also be seen in
a special comedy at the Grand Sun
day.
"Fascination" is "Peacock Alleys"
successor and it outdoes even that
picture's effectiveness.
"YELLOW MEN AND GOLD"
AT ELKO THEATRE TODAY
What person with an ounce of red
blood in his veins who does not re
cover a youthful thrill at the tale
of a quest for treasure? The old
time thrills have been recaptured and
imprisoned for all time on celluloid

film version of his story "Yellow

"ROSE 'O THE SEA" AT THE
GRAND TODAY, SATURDAY
1 Always a charming and luminous
subject for photographic studg Anita
Stewart, th'e First 'National star, is
said to have filmed at her most at
tractive degree in "Rose 'o the Sea"
the coming attraction at the Grand
theatre. Fred Niblo, who directed
the picture, has had many years ex
perience handling the megaphone
during which -he has mad^t a partic
ular study of tone tines and types.
"Rose 'o the Sea" is the long prom
ised screen adaption of the novel of
the same name by-Countess Barcyn
ska. Fred Niblo directed and the
cast includes, un addition to the star,
Rudolph Cameron, Thomas Holding,
a
Cooley, Joh Lockney and
Charies Belcher. The picture marks
iMr. Cameron's re-appearance in films
after several years."

outstanding war savings stamp cer

new certificates. The exchange will
greatly aid the refunding activities
of the Treasury and will obviate the
immediate paying-out of cash,
which it is desired to avoid until the

smoothed out.
