Aiibertitna R schMkes Big, Hit With:
llcaiful Ihancing; Miss Conger
and German Act Please
St-ccess crowned the first production
of the All Nation Revue which was
given in Hill auditorium last night
before an audience of 3,000 people.
Albertina Rasch, premier danseusel
of the Metropolitan Grand Opera com-
pany, furnished the most enthralling
moments of the two and one-half hour
From the first word of the effective
prologue until the lights died away
upon the last scene of mankind ascend-
ing the steep slope of progress, the
production was a series of appeals to
the audience. Dancing and singing
acts composed the greater portion of
the program. Close competition for
supremacy among the different repre-
sentations resulted from the long pe-
riod of work put upon the preparation
of the various scenes.
Perhaps the act with the greatest
interest was that entitled "The Toys
of Nurenberg" in which 12 children,
led by Fritz Burt, performed dances
and went through military evolutions.
"Mr. Bull of London Town," featuring
Frank Grover as a Tommy Atkins, and
a song specially written by Director
Stauffer, won round after round of
applause. There was a thrill in the
South African scene in which 15 Zulus

Miss Dorothy Conger proved an ex-
cellent exponent of the art of classic
Greek dancing in the act representing
that country, and was aided by four
of her pupils. The Oriental scenes,
representing China, Japan and Turkey,
were unique examples of the life in
those countries.
"The Wrath of Pele," showing an
ancient life in Hawaii, was a dramatic
surprise to the audience. The plot for

Conference Regarding Huron River
Dangors Will Be Held Today
First steps in an energetic cam-

trical company.

Rome, Mar. 7.-News has been

a mob fired on them. The mob has

The Germans have made a gain in that
important sector, getting a foothold in
the Torbeaux woods, which lie to the
southwest of the Cote de L'Oie. The
official statement issued by the Paris
war office tonight makes this admission
but declares all other attacks in that
neighborhood were repulsed.

Prologue and epilogue, the work of
William H. Fort, Jr., proved to be the
impressive moments of the production.
Louis Reimann, as Humanity, appear-

in dignified language ,described the
plight of mankind, called forth his
handmaidens to aid him in the progress
of civilization, and sent them forth
to bring back the different nations.
In the epilogue the entire cast of
over 200 returned to the stage, and
under the guidance of the handmaid-!
ens wound their way along the path
of progress past the impressive figure
of Humanity.
