The Lost Battalion I . f"\R. CLYDE H. NEILL who headed I J a committee from the local Elks, h organisation to witness the perr ance put on by the members of the . Wheeling lodge comes back with a splendid report on the production that Mr. Miller, of New York. Is using this year. The settings and costumes are entirely new and make a wonderfully attractive background for the players. Porty-flve performers are cast in the first part, and the song numbers used are the most popular hits of the season. The comedy has been selected with especial view to being new ami snappy, with Just enough of a local touch to make It interesting. Mr. Mil ler Is already In Fairmont, baring had his tlrst rehearsal. From now on until next week, the date of the minstrel, ' Miller and hlB performers will have a . busy time Indeed, fop?everyone conf nected with the project Is determined that the Elks' Minstrel this year shall be better than ever, and that's no Idle press agent stuff. New Hipp Bill Makes Good. Rube Fulkerson's organization has the misfortune of following a big organization, and that in itself is some obstacle for a tabloid organization of nine or ten people. However, the first appearance-before Fairmont folks was satisfactory, Judging by the opinions of various folks who saw the show, ^ and who are slow to express an opinion if it is a good one. The comedlan Is a fast worker, and besides havsome very good lines*put a ginger Into his work that ts really enjoyable. I The nnnsual feature is the work of I pretty Baby Mary, a little midget of tlx or seven years who does her bits 'In a finished manner that would do credit to folks much older. A nice stage settling gives the elegantly gowned chorus a background that is rery pleasing to the eye, and at once creates an air of expectancy that is not disappointed. Nelson Featuring Blllie Burke. Paramount's latest Billle Burke oomedy, "The Misleading Widow," pleases quite as much through ingenlous situations and bright subtitles ' is through the entire fitness of the star to the character of the heroine. The role of an extravagant and wholly . Irresponsible young lady is one she ob rb vlonsly delights In, a frothy creature, to be sure, but as lovable as a charm tag foolish child. SUlle 'Burke really has very little to k do but walk gracefully through her K part of the story, or lie In bed, as the F ease may he. Some of the lines ref -veallng her utter lack of logic are so \ '' amusingly feminine th-1 they are gems ^ af their kind. The support Is excellent straight through, honors going to Mrs. Priestly Morrison in the ungracious role of an overbearing prude and gossip. The oast satisfactory, the settings grateful to the eye, there is nothing to mar a really entertaining light comedy, whose lines aro bound to get a laugh everywhere, as they did at the Rialto. It the Nelson today. ^ Anita StewSrt In Italian Character. Written by Violet Irwin and directftd bv Wilfred North, the flve-nart picture, "Human Desire," at the Dixie, has Anita Stewart for the star. It is the story-of a convent reared Italian , girl who is born with a great love for neglected babies. She comes to America, is used as a model by a painter and falls in love with him. He IS already married, but lives unhap? pily with his wife. The model's inno* ceuce leads her into Hfrious danger, I - bnt she marries the painter after his wife is killed in an accident The story is not above the ordinary, hut it will please women and children. It has the benefit of the star's appealing fitness for such a part and the help of good direction and a well chosen , supporting cast Light ComeSy at Princess. The six-reel World Picture, entitled "Phil-for-Short," shown at the 3; Princess, is a light comedy of pleasing character, not especially strong in plot but quite agreeable on the Whole . The subject is .presented by : a cast, headef by Evelyn Greeley and f Hugh Thompson. It has some drawbacks in the way of continuity, as ' instead of telling" a simple, straightforward story, it really subdivides , _ Into two main situations. The closing fk' scenes in the bungalow seem almost to constitute a separate episode. the subject contains some good outdodr views, hut the effect of subtitles thrown over and at one side of - actual scenes in the story is not al ways a nappy one. 'rue heroine is the daughter of a Greek scholar and she interprets certain classic dances, ,whi?h gives opportunity tor some picturesque effects. As a yrhole. this narrative, while entertaining and enjoyable, is one tha* sticks pretty close to the average in COAL Promptly Delivered I McCoy Coal Company.' Office Phone 129.

Napoleon's Sacrifice at Waterloo, and Pickett's charge at Gettysburg. The Lost Battalion which was a membei of the 7th New York Volunteers pushed ahead of the allied lines in the Argonne drive, and before they were aware, they were cut off from tlv balance of their command. Several days elapsed, and the entire 1,200 men were believed to have been captured or murdered by the Germans, when scouts from the Fiftieth Aero Squadron, discovered them and at great risk dropped food from their planes, enough at least to keep them alive until they were able to fight their way back to the advancing allied battle line. The few survivors of the original Lost battalion were each award ea a special medal from Congress. In the film one sees these survivors acting over again the scenes of the great struggle. , POP.
