Tho vaiide yllle program was also very xood. Honied by "Revue ComlqueR" which have five clever girls all of which do very pleasing specialties in the way of songs and dances, and two men who act the comedy parts. A. very m.vcl Idea is introduced In the fact that the entire company is present on the stase all the time the act is on, even the girls mau their changes in full view of tho audience. 1"uL, part of the en'"rtalnmenf pleased the men most.

This at i traction, a distinct novelty, presents i the best known selections from the leading operas by a double mixed ir-'Ttet. The selections are carefully I c.iosen and very well done. The .whole offering is equipped with elab orate scenic investiture and costumes. ! Fred Stone, the nimble acrobatic ! comedian, is starred in li:.- Aim pro gram in h!a new success "Under the Top." The story is of circus life an affords wide opportunities for the ac tive Mr. Stone. Te Paths News has some interesting news features that are most timely.

The Three Walters present a sen sational triple-bar act, that is speedy and Involves a number of exceedingly difficult and dangerous stunts. Some 'bicycling that includes both thrills and laughs is furnished by Myrtle and Jimmie Dunedin, who round out the 'bill in a very satisfac tory way. LYRIC Those who have not yet taken ad vantage of the opportunities offered to see that delightfully entertaining and laughable comedy, "It Pays to .Advertise" at the Lyric theatre this week should make arrangements at once to secure seats for the four re maining performances. The moral of the play Is that stick tuitiveness will win provided the per son has the courage to hold on even though adversity seems to have the upper hand. When matters seem darkest to the hero there is a rift in the clouds and all a.bout him are convinced that he had the right idea and even his father who was his strongest opponent is brought around to the son's way of thinking. Of course there is the sweet love story which twines itself In and out throughout the lines and adds much to the strength of the play. Pathos, heart interest and rough humor vie with each other in the at traction which is scheduled for pro duction at the family playhouse next week when the Poll Players will in terpret that famous story of the fa mous and historical North woods, "Tess of the Storm Country." No doubt many have read this interest ing story but the dramatization is far superior in that it shows the charac ters as actual living breathing hu man beings. WEST END One of the best photoplays of Mar guerite Clark's repertoire is "Little Miss Hoover," in which that popular Paramount start is appearing at the West End Theatre tonight. Miss Clark has the role of an enthusiastic society girl who becomes a farmer ette and raises chickens so that the United States may win the war. There is a charming love story the interest of which is sustained to the end. "Boobs and Bumps" 2 reel Bis? V comedy; Burton-Holmes Travels and Harold Lloyd comedy will also be shown.

Newberry, doubtless will be fully investigated bv the present Senate. Bach has brought accusations against the other and both will bo heard. The resolution authorizing the in quiry was considered favorably by the Contingent Expenses Committee. The vote 3 to 1. Senator Smoot opposed the investigation. There will be a lively debate when the Senate is ask ed to adopt the resolution as reported. It will be a partisan affair, with the exception of one or two progressive Republicans who believe the Michi gan scandal should be aired. The Democrats will adopt the resolution when discussion is concluded. It is proposed to begin the inquiry at once. A program will be quickly arranged and the examination of wit nesss taker, up at an early date. It cannot be completed in time for ac tion at this session of Congress. Alfred Lucking as counsel for Mr. Ford filed with the Senate an answer to charges made by Mr. Newberry that the campaign outlay of Ford mad9 his own resemble a mere pit tance. Mr. Ford's statement was: "My nttention has been called to a communication to your honorable body signed Truman H. Newberry, by J. C. Murun, his attorney-at-!aw and in fact, in which are made charges of- excessive and unlawful expendi tures by or on behalf of Henry Ford in the late Michigan Senatorial elec tion and of irregularities. "I beg to say, in as emphatic lan guage as parlimentary rule will per mit, that these charges and insinua tions are wholly false and they only furnish additional reasons why an immediate investigation should be or dered, which Mr. Ford has hn ing for ever since the primary and' v. men nas been opposed by Mr. New berry and his representatives from from that time until this. "No money or other thing of value was expended by Mr. Ford either in primary or election and no monies wero expended in his behalf in the primary. The expenditures made in the election were made by the Non-Partisan-Ford-for-Senator Committee and by the Democratic State Central committee, both of which committees have reported It utmost detail under the oath of their respective treasurers their expenditures, which were all lawful disbursements." j Pttfl-S pAMOr ACROBATIC :H t W- C OMEDIAN IX A NEW HIT Bo ---------------- El AN OPERATIC REVUE Hi A DOUBLE QUARTET OF REAL SONGBIRDS IN A PLEASING PROGRAM OF LIGHT OPERA A Delightful Musical Treat WM.
