Eighty years ago yesterday the so-
called "Frost-bitten" convention met
at the old, red, log cabin at the
northwest corner of Main and Huron
streets to make over the territory of
Michigan into a state.
The convention was irregular, be-
ing made up of self-appointed candi-
dates, but few such meetings have had
such great significance. Even then
feeling ran high on the subject of
slavery and congress had voted to let
in Arkansas and Michigan to balance
each other. But in order to enter
Michigan had to vote to accept a new
boundary on the south which gave
some of her territory to Ohio and In-
diana.
The point that put the motion
through was the fact that the United
States treasury had too much money
on hand, so there was going to be a
division of moneys. They figured that
Michigan's share would be $450,000 if
she got in on time. So they hurried-
ly called this celebrated convention
and passed the resolution.

A lasting impression of realism and
naturalness is left in the minds of'
the spectators by Enid Bennett's lat-
est picture, "The Marriage Ring,"
which is to be shown at the Majestic
today and tomorrow. Miss Bennett
rises to great emotional heights in
this picture, she is assisted by Jack
Holt, as leading man, and Maude
George, as a Hawaiian girl.
The story deals with the girl, wife
of a brute who dominates her. They
struggle over a revolver which. is dis-
charged; she leaves him for dead and
goes to Honolulu where she learns to
love a real man. Then the husband
shows up, steals her, and imprisons
her in a hut, from which she finally
escapes after many exciting adven-
tures, and comes under the happi-
ness she so justly deserves.
Mack Sennett's latest comedy en-
titled "Summer Girl," featuring Ford
Sterling, will also be shown. It con-
sists in the wild adventures of Ford
in trying to get away from an imita-
tion countess. In the course of this
comedy a company of trained seals do
some clever stunts in a large swim-
ming tank.
Hoover Co. Not Affected by War's End
The Hoover Steel Ball Co.'s orders
for munitions have greatly diminish-
ed since the close of the war. The
majority of the company's contracts
during the period of the war consist-
ed of orders for steel balls for torpe-
do boats, aeroplanes and motor trucks,

but the government has given no or-
ders for these since the closing of hos-'
tilities. However, the number of or-'
ders for steel balls for pleasure autos
have been sufficient to cover this defi-'
ciency.

"THIRTY A WEEK"
The Romance of a Thin Bankroll and a Stout Heart
HE DARED TO LOVE THE DAUGHTER OF THE RICHEST
M1AN IN TOWN
A handsome chauffeur on "thirty per" in wartime. A beautiful
girl who made him forget all about the high cost of living-and loving.
Obstacles, disappointments, adventures-none of these could keep
Danny Murray, with the laughing eyes and the romantic heart, from
winning. His motto was "You can't beat the luck of the Irish."

AT THE ARCADE

"Thirty a Week,"with Tom Moore
as a star, is to be seen at the Arcade
today and tomorrow. It is said that
this picture suits Mr. Moore even
better than the play, "Just for To-
night," which had such success at the
Arcade a few weeks ago. Tallulah
Bankhead, the beautiful Alabama girl
who left Washington society to go in-
to pictures, is Mr. Moore's leading
lady in this picture. She is the daugh-
ter of Representative William B.
Bankhead of Alabama I and grand-
daughter of John H. Bankhead, Unit-
ed States senator form the same
state.
