lover of the national pastime reads
of a donble-header for one price of
admission. The big musical show

days, starting Thursday. Eddie
Rae, the clever star of this attrac

lovers of this class of amusement,
as be baa basked in their favor for
many seasons. "Pretty Baby" is
heralded as a sparkling musical
comedy with comedy situations ga

the applause winning numbers have
never been used before outside of
this company and a charming cho
rus of sweet singing voices aug

Rye is similar to whet, there being

is 5 per cent more land in hay this
year than last and the condition is
much better than in the average

deep, was confined inside the con
ference. Beside making statements
addressed to the sentiment and will
of peoples in general, and there
fore to the Italian people, the full
authority and therefore the pres
tige of the Italian delegates was
doubted in the grave and decisive
hour wben it was most needed."
"The question of Fiume was first
brought forward by Italy but by a
thrilling act of spontaneous . loy
alty which began with the declara
tion of Fiume's representative in
the Hungarian parliament, and
which was subsequently confirmed
when . Fiume proclaimed herself an
"Can our great nation remain
inert and unmoved by the vehe
ment and despairing appeal of this
people, whose blood is of our
blood No! Italy does not need to
put Jorward a formal thesis in sup
port of her demands, leeliag sure
that violence will not be done to
the wijl of this Italian town."
Premier Orlando reiterated that
the treaty of London did not pre
vent the allies from considering
the Fiume question from the Ital
ian viewpoint and that moreover
the allies had admitted they were
in no wise bound regarding Fiume
since they considered themselves
capable of agreeing to the freedom
of the city.
After paying tribute to all the
allied soldiers the premier contin

the allies of today and all their peo

the victory of an ideal, must re

that I can not determine in this

by what means we can reach that
object because in the last solemn
conversation that occurred on
April 24 there arose a difference,
not only regarding our point of
view but also between that of our
allies and our associated powers.
"Therefore, in the present state
of affairs, Italy is not facing a so
lution in which the allied and as
sociated governments agreed with
an insurmountable measure of
agreement. Nor is there a pro
posal of compromise upon which
all are agreed, but instead she is
j facing a difference of opinion which
virtually denies the actual possi
