Shubert's military musical produc tion, "Her Soldier Boy," which comes here after its New York tri umph of 225 consecutive perform ances at the Astor Theatre in New York, where it was one of the real big theatrical hits of the last sea son. Because of its military atmos phere '"Her Soldier Boy" aptly has been called "the psychological play of the hour." It was ,vritten by Victor Leon who wrote "The Merry Widow" and other musical suc oesses of the past, with music by Emmarich Kalman, composer of "Sari." Rida Johnson Young wrote the book and lyrics and additional cumbers were provided by Sigmund l"d Bennett in TrIiagle Play, I'Ahsh;ot1Bo ."

'"Her Soldier Boy," although mil itary in its aspect, is not a war play in that most of its entertaining qualities are derived from the pretty heart interest and mirthful comedy with which it is supplied. Charles Irwin and Kitty Henry will be seen in the principal roles, those of Teddy McLean, adventuresome young Am erican, and Amy Lee, also of the U. S. A., both of whom are caught in Belgium at the outbreak of the war. A Shubert production of ex ceptional merit is the promise held out in advance of "Her Soldier Boy," with elaborate staging and costuming, tuneful melodies and a Broadway beauty chorus of 35.

Pami an lsea Pnadss see 23 per leat io t - -pee, d ai We have arranged for a series of six interesting articles, "War Talks, by Uncle Dan," written by Mr. Howard H. Gross, president of the Univer sal Military Training League, of which this is the first. They tell in a graphic way why military training is of value, both to the nation and to the individual, and our readers will find them of unusual interest. WAR TALKS By UNCLE DAN Number One Amerlca Must Fight Hard or Germany May Wn--Necessity for Mili tary Training. "Now, Billie," said his mother, "your Uncle Dan is coming tomorrow to spend a week with us on the farm, and if you want to know about the war, here's your opportunity. Uncle Dan is probably one of the best-informed men in the country." Billie clapped his hands and gave such a whoop tpat he wakened the baby, but what could you expect of a fifteen-year-old boy who is a living interrogation point and wants toknow about war? Uncle Dan arrived in due time and Billie watched for an opportunity. It came that evening after dinner when Uncle Dan had lighted a cigar and taken a seat on the porch. "I'm mighty glad you came, Uncle Dan. I want to talk to you about the war. We have just put military train ing in our township high school, but we had a hard time to do it The Joneses and the Greggs objected. They said the war wouldn't come over here. Grandma Jones said: 'They ain't no use to worrit, it will soon blow over.' Well, we put the training in just the same. You orter heard Judge Brow nell, the president of the school board, do the slackers up. He said unless we take off our coats and go to it, Ger many may yet win, and if she does, she will take over the great British fleet as a war trophy and compel us to do what ever she wants to; that she could make us pay all the cost of the war; the kaiser could tax us as he pleased and that we couldn't help ourselves. He could make every one pay over a part of what he earns; that he could make the farmers pay rent for their own farms, etc. Now, Uncle, what do you think of that?" "Well, my boy," said Uncle Dan, "all that Judge Brownell says might easily come true and may unless we go quickly to the aid of the allies with large numbers of men and help them break the German line. Unless we can beat the submarines, they may pre vent us from getting enough food to the allies to keep them going. In that case Germany would win. As matters stand today, our greatest need is trained men. If we had had several millions of men with military training in our Lndustries and on ou tarms when the war came, who could have been called at once for service, I do not believe the kaiser would have forced the war upon us. As It ras, he had no respect for us, and now we are in It nd must go through with it. But never again must we be eaught ao -tonb uprepare. wT is only one safe way," said Uncle Dan, "and that is to adopt per manently ntiversai miitary training, apply it to every young man who is physIcally fit, say in his nineteenth or twentieth year. The training can be carried forward In the United 8tates training camps that are now bedlg a tablished for training men called by the selective draft. As soon as these men vascate these statioes, they should be filled by ynger men and this should be made the permanent polley of the country." Bllie's mother, Mrs. Graham, had overheard the conversation. h8be eae out and said: "Beally, Brother Dan, are you serious as to the dangers of our country? IJ it is as bad as that, it is high time for us to wake up and do something about it." "Exactly," replied Uncle Dan. "It is better to wake up now than to be rudely awakened later. We may as well understand, slater, that this is our war and we must win It or God help America. Everything that we have or hope to have-our liberties, our blesings, our opportunities are all in volved in the great issue before us. Notbing must stand between us and winning this war. It is a question whether the peoples' right or the kal ser's might shall dominate the world. If there ever was a holy war, this is it. We are fghting for world Uliberty. We are fghting for the freedom of humanity. We are ghtlg for the right of men to govern tkh lves In stead of being governed against their will by a war-mad overlord. Perlous times are ahead of us. We must be prepared to make any sacrifce, to pre form any service that may be required of us." "Oh, Uncle Dan," aeelaimed Bllie, "may I bring my chuam. Jimmie Col lia, when we have our next talk? Be is a bu ona this war buslaes and Just a to ee you," "*Obrtaly," said Uncle Dan, with a hesrty laugh. "If we are to havedore talks, I shall be glad to have Jlmale join us." Billie clapped his hads and ra to the 'phone and told JImmie to be over t seven o'clock the next evening, eaw burn ueuru toY urn to LOVE IN DARK CONTINENT How 8hadrach, Aged Twelve, Violated the Rules Against Courting at College of West Africa. Although "courting" had been stric. ly prohibited at the College of West Africa, Shadrach, aged twelve, tried to slip this note to his beloved lady one morning at chapel. But, alas for himl It fell into his teacher's hands, 'says the World Outlook. "Dear Miss I[oulse: Simply thease 'few words hoping and trusting you are injoying the very best of help this p. m.
