“Fighting Odds,” Goldwyn Picture, by
Megrue And Cobb. Vehicle For
Famous Beauty’s Bow at
Republic Theatre.
_ Back to thousands of friends and ad
mirers who have eagerly awaited her
decision to resume her activities in
the wcrld of make-believe comes Msx
ine Elliott, now a star in motion pic
tures. Thiß famous beauty of the
stage makes her cinema debut here
Saturday at the Republic Tneatre as
. the star of the great Goldwyn produc
tion, “Fighting Odds,“by Roi Cooper
Megrue and Irvin S, Cobb.
‘Fighting Odds’’ was especially
written for the lovely star of the stage
by Mr. Megrue. one of America a
most successful playwrights, and Mr.
Cobb, one of the country's most popa
Ur authors.
It brings Miss Elliott to the screep
af i r an absence of several years from
the drama, during which she gave her
b*st efforts to war relief work in
Flanders, where for two years she
presided over a houseboat station for
the treatment of wounded and the care
of refugees.
There are few women who hold a
higher place in the esteem of the
American public. In beginning, her
career upon the screen, Maxine Elliott
is lovelier than ever. The product of
the two famous writers, charged with
producing a vehicle suitable to her ex
ceptional dramatic powers, has been
developed into a stirring and beauti
ful dramatic whole for the screen.
“Fighting Odds” deals with big
business and it is encounteted in the
rapidly growing automobie industry.
It is a powerful story of intrigue and
trickery on the part of powerful men,
and of the loyalty and perseverance of
a beautiful woman to outwit the con
spirators and bring them to justice.
It provides for Misb Elliott many
highly emotional scenes, in which she
Appears to outdo anything she ever at
tempted on the stage.
Eyelyn Neabit la “Redemption”
Colonial Tomorrow
Judging from the praise of press
! and public alike, Evelyn Nesbit, in
I “Redemption,’’ which is the special
i attraction at the Colonial Theatre for
tomorrow and Saturday, matinee and
evening, is the supreme screen sur
prise of the year. It is a remarkable
drama, drawing much of its inspira
tion from the events in her own life,
yet In no way capitalizing the notorie
ity of the case. Evelyn Nesbit is
known the world over, and she has
proved herself not only an exceptional
screen subject, but an emotional ac
tress of really great ability. There
are heart ’hrobs in this drama that,
brings teats to the eyes There is
truth in the story to amply justify the
theme, and above all it makes one feel
deeply mother love. Here and there
are touches of comedy to relieve the
tense dramatic situations, the result
being an almost perfect photodrama.
Evelyn Nesbits little son Russeli
Thaw and her husband Jack Clifford
appear in the picture. Russell Thaw
is a precocious youth who has an espe
cially appeal to women, and Jack Clif
ford does a modern dance with Miss
Nesbit with excellent effect. Miss
Nesbit has slways been considered a
beautiful woman, and those seeing her
on the screen will agree with the ver
diet. Clear photography, beautiful
settings and an excellent supporting
"Cast go to make ' * Redemption’ a re
markable production.
Buy A Bond.
Kaiser Bill took a great big fleef
To take our sailor boys off their feet,
But our gallant boys showed what they

And Kaiser Bill’s gonna remember it
When our first Liberty Bond’s all came
And it was oversubscribed,
The Kaiser’s staff began to shout,
And the Kaiser like a baby, cried.
Our boys are now at training
To helD to HOCH the Kaiser indeed!
Do help to keep our bonds a-raining
When, to hoch the Kaiser there’ll be
no need.
Buy a Liberty Bond for ycur country’s
Show Uncle Sam that you are wide
Your boys will bood be home if you do
And after a while you'll be glsd of it,

At The Colonial Theatre Tonight.*
Carlyle Blackwell,in “The M rr ge
Market” and “Fatty” Arbuc 1 , in
“Oh Doctor,’ will be the splendid at
tractions at the Colonial this evening.
The story told in ‘The Marriage
Market,” is of society and business
life in New York at the present time.
The situation upon which tne story is
based is one that comes up frequently
in the circles where the characters
live. John Grant is hard pressed for
money, largely due to the lavishnees
with which his daughter, Heleu, dissi
pates his wealth. With steel stock as
security he borrows SIOO,OOO from
his friend, Erie Poxhsll. The latter
returns the stock to Grant for safe
keeping Grant, becoming more des
perately in need of money, again puts
up the stock for another loan. Helen,
finding this out and fearing that her
father will be sent to the penitentiary
unless he makes good, marries Brad
ley Spayden, a wealthy young bounder,
who promises her SIOO,OOO as a mar
riage .settlement. She does this de
spite the fact that she loves Richard
Marlowe, a rising young stock broker.
But before she can get the money to
her father, the latter has committed
suicide. Later Marlowe comes back
into her life and finally happiness
comes to them uutier strange circum
' stances.
. The story told in this production is
one that is filled with surprises and ex
citing incidents It is a logical and
consistent drama and ends with a big
climax that will delight every one.
Carlyle Blackwell as Richard Marlowe
and June Elvidge as Helen Grant give
two splendid characterizations of the
strongly drawn characters they por
tray, while Arthur Ashley in the Me
of the wealthy young bounder, gives
an excellent interpretation of his part.
“Fatty” Arbuckle has been caught
in the toils of a beautiful but unscru
pulous vampire, accomplice of a crook.
But fortuntely this only occurs in “Oh
Doctor” his latest comedy which is a
cream from sturt to finish. In the
role of Dr. I O. Dine, Fatty is sure
one huge scream. This is a delight
fully pleasing shown tonight, don’t
miss it.
Tomorrow, matinee and evening,
Evelyn Nesbit and son. Russell Thaw,
in “Redemption.”
\t The Republic Tonight.
“Broadway, Arizona” is the excel
lent attraction at the Repulic tonight.
The arrival of John Keyes, rich
Arizona cattleman, in New York,offer
ed Fritzi Carlisle and her press agent
a chance to pull a big story for the
daily papers. The next the morn
ing papers announce the engagement,
but the afternoon papers deny it.
Keyes learns how he has been duped.
He leaves for home, and later learns
that Miss Carlisle is confined to her
room owing to a nervous breakdown.
He returns to New York and tries to
induce the girl to visit his Broadway,
Arizona. She refuses, so, like Loch
invar of old, he masquerades as a hos
pital attendant and carries the girl off
bodily. The newspapers are full of
the sensational kidnapping, and Miss
Carlisle’s press agent learns of her
whereaboute. However, the Arizona
atmosphere has been so beneficial to
the girl that when the officers arrive
to place Keyes under arrest, she ad
mits that she is in love with him and
promises to marry him.
At the Uepuolic Tomorrow.
A drama of soul-appeal at the Re
public Theatre tomorrow, is “The
Soul of Satan. ”
As is usual with all her productions,
Gladys Brockwell is n t the star in
name only. She has a real part, with
real emotions and she acts in a realis
tic fashion. Miss Brockwell possesses
one of the few truly msgnelic person
alities of the screen. She can throw
her influence over her spectators with
a confidence that makes one grip the
arms of his chair, and watch her every
In the new picture, Gladys begins
with a drab type of slum child, who
has just 6een just enough of the world
to believe that it means only misery
and happiness. When she meets a
man who takes more than a passing
interest in ner, she immediately con
cludes that she is in love, and goes
away from her home with him
The passage of time brings to her
two things, the bve of a real mar,
from the great west; and the realiza
tion that her marriage to Jhe first man
has been a mere sham ceremony, cal
culated to quiet her own scruples.
fhen she finds that the “huband” is
guilty of so vile a crime that hs is be
ing sought by a man whose life he
had ruined Sinner and avenger me t,
face to face And, while the criminal
lies dead in the etreet, the girl goes to
her Rome and happiness, with the en
circling arm of the man she really
loves", wrapped tenderly about her.
At The Palace Tonight.
Helen Gibson, in “The Perilous
Leap” will be the attraction at the
Palace tonight.
“You will do the government a ser
vice if you allow us to store this merc
ury in your barn, Dad.

Ten Million Pounds Found In Ware*
bouse Labeled as Top
Crust Flour
Federal Secret Service agents yes
terday reported to Washington the
discovery in a Buffalo warehouse of
millions of pounds of sugar in bags
and barrels labeled “top crust flour."
Notations on the packages, it was
said, indicated that the sugar had
been coining into the warehouse over
a period of several months. A Fed
eral agent, who made a survey of the
contents of the buiTding, estimated
the amount of sugar at 150 carloads,
or about 10,000,000 pounds.
Around immense piles of sacks con
taining the sugar the federal agent
said he found a screen of other arti
cle, while some the containers
mles whole some the containers
marked “top crust flour" actually
had flour sprinkled over the outside.
Richard M. Richardson, superin
tendent of the Keystone Warehouse,
in which the sugar ■was stored, did
not know of the presence of the
Secret Service agent and a newspaper
man in the warehouse until the sur
vey of the contents had been virtually
He ordered the newspaper man out
of the building and demanded that
the Secret Service agent come to the
warehouse office for his data. The
sugar, Richardson said, belonged to a
condensed milk company.
George S. Buck. City Comptroller,
sent a message to John Mitchell,
chairman of the State Food Commis
sion, stating that a sugar famine ex
isted in Buffalo and asking Mr. Mit
chell to take action to bring about
the release of some of the sugar in

Making Big Cantonment Spy Proof —
Chief Task Of Baltimore
Camp Meade now boasts of a Mayor.
Ho is Mayor Ezra B. Whitman, of
Baltimore, and was inducted into office
on Monday.
The ceremony was without ostenta
tion, but marked a turning point in
the history of the cantonment. From
this lime forward the Mayor’s princi
pal duties will be to handle the spy
situation and to prevent any overt or
covert acts by hired agents of the
While the outside world may ridi
cule the espionage system of the Teu
tonic Government, it is real and ap
parent to Major General Kuhn, divi
sion commander. As military attache
at Berlin he saw this branch of the
Kaiserbund at work. He frankly says
that German spies are everywhere,
and he would not be surprised if there
were scores scattered about the vari
ous National Army encampments.
But Mayor Whitman has made am
ple preparations to combat these foes.
He has already put gangs of pien to
work erecting stockades, 12 feet high,
with barbed-wire entanglements,
about the principal buildings at
Meade. These vulnerable points thus
protected are the waterworks, the
electric plants, the two pumping sta
tions, the filtration plant and the stor
age tanks behind the reservation,
which are a principal source of the
water supply of the cantonment.
In addition to these steel protections
armed guards pace every hour of the
24 about these structures and utilities.
Not for one instant is the vigilance
These duties fall to the lot of mili
tary police, of which there are hun
dreds about the camp. Mayor Whit
man has command of this branch of
their endeavors and has sway over
300 men. The mayor is a noted elec
trical and construction engineer, and
has* been the supervising head when
certain Baltimore public utilities were
Mayor Whitman has divided his po
lice work into four sections, each un
der a captain. These branches are
buildings, water and service, light and
power and fire, and fire prevention.
The mayor’s duties are among the
most Important in the camp, and Gen
eral Kuhn emphasizes the need of this
sort of police patrol.
The men comprising the military
police have other duties, which come
under the head of the usual work.
They search all the baggage of per
sons entering the camp, from a gen
eral of the army to a negro mule
driver. They keep an eye upon sus
picious persons, and they see that no
body gets about the camp who in any
manner fails to impress them as
The stockades will be completed
possibly by the middle of this week,
when they will act as barriers to all
who have no business there from en
tering any of the main buildings used
in camp utilities.
