Problem Play at Grand.
For the first time in this city, "The
i Unmarried Mother" will be presented
: at the Grand theatre Wednesday with
1 matinees dally. No one under sixteen
years of age will be admitted . Tlis
' '? > wow mrtrol flmma frtnr acts,
, from the prolific pen of that popular
' i writer of fiction. Florence Edna May.
I who has contributed several well
, known successes to the stage and has
J also many novels to her credit.
"The Unmarried Mother" is a prob'
lem play and deals with one of the
[ most important questions of the day.
, and that is?what is to become of the.
war babies and unmarried anthers
that are left behind? In the play the
story has to do with a young girl who
in order to relieve the destitute wants
' of her aged mother, sells her soul to
, gain the bare necessities of life She
. loves not wisely, but too well, and, of
| course, theer is the ultimate cud she
is left with a nameless baby. It is
' here that the author maintains and
; I shows that the legal stigma of ais'.
grace should be lined from tne inno!
cent children born out of wedlo.-k.
