I AT THE THEATRES BOZ THEATRE Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, Robert Warwick, who in "Alias Jimmy Valentine" in the film play, has won fame as a World Film Star in an incredibly short space of time. In "The Dollar Mark" and "The Man of the Hour" he played the leads with surpassing distinction and earnest ness." Alias Jimmy Valentine" makes even greater demands upon his dra matic abilities. As a Sing Sing con vict he secures his release by the most •powerful pleas of innocence; as a bank clerk endeavoring to rehabili tate himself and render himself wor-' thy of the girl he loves he strenu ously beats off his old associates in crime and the detectives who still pursue him. And, finally, baring his fingers to the bone, he opens a safe to rescue a child inside, well know ing that this manifestation of his al most superhuman power of opening safes by mere touch may mean his remission to the penitentiary at-the hands of a vindictive detective. Thursday, Friday and Saturday ht the Boz, "Anna Karenina" is famous wTV r L i $ *■ k i m -Opening Monday for three days at The Majestic will be "The Romance of the .Navy." a superb and thrilling, play, without a dull minute from start to finish. Follow the Crowd» to The Majestic. to students of feminine psychology the world over. Till/Count Leo Tol stoi created this wonderful character there had never been such a revelation of the complex workings of a mod ern woman's soul. Anna Karenind ranks far in advance of Ibseii's Nora or Heda Gabler, as an exotic hero ine of the ultra modern type. She has been the text of countless essays, sermons and speeches and contro versy has raged hotly about the story of the "woman who dared." In some quarters Anna has been held up as the prototype of the misun derstood woman, in others she has been hotly assailed as a modern Mag dalen. At any rate, whatever angle her character is viewed from, it is one full of such strange complexities that it must give the lightest of thinkers pause for deep consideration. Cer tainly it is not character to be dismiss ed lightly. "HELP WANTED" Is the next attraction at the Isis, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. It is produced by the Oliver M_o rosco Photonlay Company in associa tion with Bosworth, incorporated. Lois Meredith and Owen Moore are the stars. Scott & Son, as a firm and as sep arate individuals, are impressed with the new stenographer engaged by Scott senior. Scott, senior, who dies his mous tache and sprays himself with ex pensive perfumes, sees in the wide eyed, timid little daughter of New York's East Side but another victim for his amorous'net. Scott, junior, falls honestly in love. The final conflict of the two over the girl is electrifying; the smashed pane in tlje door; the son's first crash ing into his father's jaw; the disin heritance. % But the son's refusal to "squeal" to the mother touches the now penitent ' father and the document is pleasing and plausible. Special Sur Cast for Lasky-Belaaco Picturization of "The Woman" Jesse L. Lasky and David Belasco announce that they have engaged a special cast for the picturization of Wm. C. De Mfile's famous modern American drama, "The Woman." which is to be the fifth in the series of Lusky-Belasco reletses and which will first be shown to the public on May 3rd. Though an individual star may be a great attraction. Mr. Belasco and Jdr. Laskv feel that the most import ant thing of all is a thorough-all-round performance, and if several stars necessary to produce this result the artists are engaged absolutely with , out regard to expense. The complete cast of "The Woman" includes Lois Meredith, Theodore Roberts, James Neill. Mabel Van Buren, Tom For man, Ernest Joy, Raymond Hatton, Helen Hill and Dr. Beitel. "The Woman" is in five parts, and will sure ly deserve to rank among the most important productions on American themes ever presented. a ! ■ MAJESTIC THEATRE "The Romance of the Navy" a three part Lubin Broadway Feature with Ormi Hawley and Earl Metcalfe in the leading roles is the headliner at Majestic Theatre Monday, Tues day and Wednesday.

ELMIRA MACHINISTS STRIKE Elmira. N. Y.—Machinists on strike against the American La France Fire Engine company of this city are being given the moral support of trade unionists in various localities who are calling attention to their municipal officers of the refusal of the company to increase wages. The strikers asked for an increase of 25 cents a day and time and one half for overtime. The rate prevail ing in other factories, doing similar work is much higher than the scale at the La France company. Every ef fort was made by the men and repre sentatives of the International Asso ciation of Machinists to adjust differ ences. The state labor department also failed in its conciliatory efforts.
