Book Is Screened
The story of the adventures of
that famous fiction character, “Mon
te Cristo,” is row a popular book
at the public libraries. This is at
tributed to the announcement that
the picture of that name will have
a revival at the Dittmann theater
today. As long as romance lives
there will be a demand for this
marvelous tale written in the nine
teenth century by Alexandre Du
mas, the elder, famous French play
wright and author. It is a story
enjoyed by boys and girls, by mid
dle-aged persons, and by elders. It
is one of the few novels that al
