tion has ever been seen upon the lo-
cal boards. It is given here exactly as
it is being presented in New York
where the big drama has broken every
record in the stage history of the first
city In the country.
It covers a wide range of American
history and touches only the highest
points of interest in the great events
that led up to and terminated the
Civil war. The force that slavery played
in producing this crisis is traced from
its inception to its abolition. While
thg basic theme is historical in its
foundation, its intent Is the funda-
mental one of true drama The forces
which make for these results have
been marshalled upon a larger scale
than was ever dreamed of before.
Where directors of vast spectacles
have dealt with hundreds in the past,
Griffith employs thousands. Eighteen
thousand people fill his stage, which
thoas a vast territory for its back
ground. Three thousand horses pass
before your view in wide dashes over
miles of country roadway. One battle-
field is shown stretching over an area
of ten square miles and upon these
plains and trenches 10,000 soldiers
clash in a mimic warfare that is as
real as if you were an eye-witness of
the actual occurrence. Holding the
great effects in tether is a story as
tender and true as love and romance
can be pictured. There are tears and
smiles, noble sacrifices and heroic
deeds of personal valor.:
Owing to the constant demand for
the Valentine number of the Gargoyle,
a small number of copies held in re-
serve at the Gargoyle office have been
given out for sale to various news
stands in the city.
The unprecedented sale of this issue
was due in large measure to the un-
usual demand created by J-Hop guests.
Efforts of the staff to anticipate and
provide for this demand by printing an
extra large edition were found to be
entirely inadequate when returns from
the. sale were received, and at a late
date it was impossible to print addi-
tional copies, which accounts for the
seeming short supply.
