Lord and Lady Al'y" is F'n 1 ; li in '-ttin and atmosphere and mounted with a skill and regard fur detail that has evidenced la-r-sham'a former productions. There are many bright lines the play runs to dialog a Kod deal and they were admirably put across by the stars und their support. In spots the action approaches farce, ' especi.i lly in the scenes inohin the impetuous Mr. Tudway, the "bone-boiler" with a penchant for des-troyini; tine china. Faversham is at his Vest in this play, It KhpH him rather more of a chance than some productions he has himself cho.-en. It has been notable of his "inanain?"' that ho has not chosen plays for the prime purpose of exploiting his own abil ities, of his best work last evening was in the ludicrous simu lation of inebriation, not often a tasteful Kubject for comedy. Fav ersham contrived to make it not only entirely inoffensive but humor ous. Maxine F.lltott returned after a Ion? absence from South Fend to chepr many of her former follow ers here. There is a maturity about her art. a certain hnish which Is admirably matched with Faver sham's playing. Her every attitude hevpeakr experience and she has a most expressive way of sighing used to cood advantage in the re strained love-making through which Lord and Lady Algernon Chetland, vlin had not "hit it" ery well, to if the author's phrase, are re united. Miss Fenwdck, new to South Lend, was ery pleasing in the' role of the romantic Mrs. Tudway who believed she preferred a "liverish" parliamentarian to her substantial though impetuous bone boiling hus band. Maclyn Arbuckle as Mr. Tudway had several opportunities of which he made the most. I lis reception last night waft also an in dication of the place he holds among local theatergoers. Lunisden Hare, that very capable actor, who has for several years been identified with Mr. Faver sham. was auain seen to advantage in the p.!'' of the Marquis of Quarmby. The remainder of the supporting company was of uniform excellence. A poetry contest was held at Notre Dame this year for the first Lime. Fach member of the poetry society was asked to submit two poems, which were sent to Thomas A.

He.tly; "A Lilly Near the Taber nacle." by James H. M Donald; "Ireland." by Thomas .1. Hanifan. After giing his judgment. Mr. Daly added: "But let not the un successful aspirants be unduly bowed down by my verdict. It's the judgment of one man, aided and abetted by an equally fallible wom an, and it cannot, of "iii'. be final, if the poet's ambition will spur on each possessor of the divine spark to better and higher son-.'."

The dinner is the tifth of its kind given by the busi ness men and was heartily enjoyed by the men w ho left Tuesday to learn the art of soldiery. Coon's Metro politan orchestra donated the music for the occasion and played patriotic uis during the dinner. Fred L. Dennis acted as toast master and introduced .-'ergt. Mur ray, local marine recruiting othcer, who gave the principal talk of the evening, in which he spoke of the conditions the men will meet with on their arrival in camp. Sergt. Murray has been in the service since 11)14 and was able to give a good description of camp life. He told the men that they would in all probability be reprimanded on cer tain occasions and would have more or less trouble at first trying to ac custom themselves to the new con ditions they would be forced to meet, but that there was no man who was so good that he would not need a reprimand at some time or other and that it was one of the things that he must expect. His talk gave the men a real in cite into the work they are about to enter upon and he was loudly ap plauded at the close of his ad dress. John A. Swygart. speaking In place of Mayor Carson, who is vis ting his son at Camp Shelby, gave a short talk to the men in which he told them how proud the city was of them and how the city was back of them in their great work.

Nitsche, membership secre tary of the .outh Bend association. i has tendered hi.-? resignation to be come immediately effective and will enter business in this city as district manager of the Equitable Life In surance Co. of Iowa. Mr. Nitsche spent nine years with the local association and one year as general secretary of the Importe as sociation. He began as an olfke sec retary and through unusually ca pable service became membership and social secretary and finally dur ing the past year was honored by the board of directors with the act ing secretaryship of the .association. Not only has Mr. Nitsche tilled a. valuable place in the local pro gram, but he has contributed to the state-wide activities of the associa tion. He was the originator of the statewide membership campaign scheme which is now being carried out. He was a member of the state membership committee of rive to promote these annual canvasses. His services have been enlisted as a lecturer at the Lake Geneva sum mer school. During the May war vvork cam paign of last spring he was the dis trict executive secretary for nine counties which contributed a total of something like $1 4,000 for army ser vice work. He was again district ex ecutive secretary in the November campaign covering four counties which raised something like $73. 000 under the chairmanship of Mar vin Campbell. When the local directors accept ed Mr. Nitsche's resignation they did so reluctantly and with hearty expressions of appreciation for his service in the local association cause. FARMERS SHOULD KILL ROOSTERS AND CONSERVE LARGE NUMBER OF EGGS If the 2,500 farmers keeping poul try in this county will dispose of either kill, sell or confine all roost ers during "Rooster week," June 3 S, they will save or conserve approx imately $3,402 worth of eggs in this county alone during the coming hot months. L'oosters are not necessary after the breeding reason. Hens will lay just as well without them. Roosters fertilize eggs without males among them bens lay infertile eggs. A fertile egg will start to germinate it does not have to be under a setting hen nor in an in cubator anywhere when the tem perature is between 70 to de- j grees. An embryo cnicK win re j gin to form within the shell of a fer tile egg during the warm morning, will continue during the " even warmer afternoon and will die when the temperature drops during the night leaving a ring of blood formed within an innocent looking shell. Result: A bad egg. Cause: Rooster, the kaiser's ally. Seventeen out of every 100 eggs marketed in this county last year were lost through somebody's care lessness. Five per cent of these marketed were lost because they wer-; fertile made fertile by some old rooster that should have made a pot-pie, been sold during Rooster week, or been confined in a small yard away from laying hens. , For next year's breeders retain big, healthy, early-matched cock etels hatched this spring. They will fertilize better than old roosters. The man or woman that knowing ly allows males to run with hens and fertilizes eggs during warm weather is deliberately damaging foodstuffs in war times.
