In the first place Superintendent
Suckley has secured a concession, from
S. Z. Poll, the theatrical magnate,
what no other person or organization,
has so far been able to secure his
theatre on Main street along with the
regular show for a performance Tues
day night, (May 21. Not alone has he
secured the theatre and the show, but
he has booked as the pieca de resist
ance, Ueutenant "Smiling" Pat
O'Brien, of the Royal Flying Corps,
who will deliver a talk about his air
battles, capture by the Hun, his life
in a German prison camp and ulti
mate escape from HunlanJd1.
It will ibe remembered that lieuten
ant O'Brien is the man who wjaen be
ing transported to a retaliation camp
in Germany, escaped from his guards
by leaping out the window of a
swiftly moving express train and with
an abiding faith in God, his eye on
the North Star, ran, walked, crawled,
swam and dug through solid earth
with his bare hands to get under
heavily charged electric wires, he at
last sank to Ihis knees in prayer as he
landed safely in Holland.

to life and being made prisoner, life,

dering through Germany and Bel

where spellbound and brings one Iback
to the stirring days that action writ-

No less wonderful than his suffer
ing while in Hunland suffering all the
terrible brutality the Prussian over
lords could heap upon helpless pris
oners, Is his recuperation from
wounds and starvation and his recep
tion by King George V. at .Bucking
ham Palace. London. He was highly
complimented by the monarch who
conversed with him in private for 52
minutes, the longest audience granted

Manager Matt Saunders, of Poll's,
promises one of the best shows of the
season for this Red Cross penorm
and he will have entire charge
'of all the stage arrangements for this
norfnrmaTice de luxe. The show will
(be the regular show for that half of
the week, but the aHdition of Ueu

the entire police force were loud In

ganization might bringbefore able
business "and professional men of
Bridgeport this great need of our
army and those of our allies, France
and Italy. '-Qeneral Persuing has "re
peatedly cabled that there was im
perative need for more secretaries

through their generals as well as
their state departments have asked
the Young Men's Christian, Associa

what was being acomplished in the
armies of the Canadian and British
by the work of tne xoung men s

Some idea of the magnitude of the
task will be realized fom the fact
that 1,000 to 1,200 men are neded
every month for the three or four
months to meet the demand. There
are literally hundreds of huts without
an association secretary in them to
serve the soldiers. Many otners are
but poorly manned because they have
been stripped of a sufficient number
of workers In order to at least put
one worker in some of these other

the other cities of the country and
New England in the number of high

is hoped that a response adequate to'
the size of Bridgeport and the num
ber of able men here may be received
in the face of this urgent call from
our state department.
