of Feb. 2. The story has to do with
the adventures of a fair but scantily
appareled sonambulist, who sonam-
bulates around clad in a large pic-
ture hat and a silk night robe. She
wanders around the narrow ledge of
a wall of a New York hotel, 16 feet
above street level and climbs into
rooms at will, taking any portable
belongings which please her fancy.
During the course of the comedy she
walks away with a priceless vial of
explosives from the apartment of a
young chemist, and invades the rooms
of a young married man who has
quarreled with his wife.
AT THE MAJESTIC
"The Rainbow Trail" at the Ma-
jestic today brings William Farnun
back in the role of the feared
range-rider, Lassiter. It is a strong
western tale of love and heart in-
terest which affords an unusual num-
ber of thrills. The scenes are large-
ly laid in the Grand Canyon of Ari-
zona and probably excel anything{
of the sort ever undertaken by any
photo play producers. This pic-
ture together with the latest Sun-
shine comedy, "Choose Your Exit,"
makes one of the best bills seen re-
cently at the Majestic.
Friday, Shirley Mason and Ernest
Truex make their Paramount debut
as co-stars in "Come On In," a John
Emerson-Anita Loos production.

AT THE WHITNEY
"Fiddlers Three," which comes to
the Whitney theater for one perfor-
mance Feb. 6, is a rarity among pro-
ductions of today, a musical comedy
with a romantic plot composed of an
interesting story alive with sifuations,
comic and compelling. The musical
numbers are introduced with a real
reason for being, and are happily in-
vested with a popular touch which
makes them readily remembered airs.
The fact that they are really sung
is another noteworthy point.
Tavie Belge, the Belgium singer
who sang the leading roles at the Ant-
werp opera house before the. invasion'
of her county is the prima donna. It
is said that she possesses the best
voice in musical comedy. Associated
with Miss Belge are the versatile com-
edian, Hal Skelley, Louise Groody with
her graceful dancing, and Thomas
Conkey whose voice is considered one
of the best on $he American stage,
and a chorus of unusual attractive-
ness.
SHUBERT-GARRICK
The Shubert-Garrick, Detroit, offers
the new and successful farce, "She
Walked in Her Sleep." for the week

Today and tomorrow the Arcade
will give two performances daily
(3 and 7:30) of D. W. Griffith's big
special production, "Hearts of the
World." This picture was 18 months
in the making, whereas most picturesl
have required only about one
month, and som less time than that.
More than 120,000 feet of film were
taken, although only 12,000 feet are
used in the production. Mr. Griffith
describes "Hearts of the World" as
"A story of the great war,' 'the act-
ual conflict itself serving only as the
background for the unfolding tale of
life in a small French village. Lil-
lian Gish, Dorothy Gish and Robert
Harron take the leading parts.
Their work before the camera is too
wellknown to comment upon.

The welding of a firmer friendship
and understanding between the peG-
ple of Britain and the United States
is the object of the English-Speaking
Union, an international cultural
society which is spreading itself
throughout England, Canada and the
United States with a promise of re-
markable growth and popularity.
Headed by the Right Honorable A. J.
Balfour in England and ex-President
Taft in the United States, the organi-
zation is already firmly established in
most of the large centers of both coun-
tries and is beginning an international
campaign for members.?}}
Joint Holidays Planned
Joint celebration of leading English
and American holidays, interchange of1
visits by professors and teachers and
large publicity campaigns on both
sides of the Atlantic are among the
methods to be used in achieving the
desired objects. Publications and bul-
letins will be enlisted in the work of
popularizing the movement and in-
formation emphasizing the impor-
tance of the association.
Stand for World Peace
Although the organizers of the
league disclaim military and politi-
cal objects behind their work, it is
expected that the closer sympathy of
the English-speaking peoples will be
a step toward closer political rela,-
tionship and accord. The creed of the
association declares that its rmotive
is to advance the ca 1e 1
peace anid the progrcss cf c>':i
p a e a d t e p o r s oftion. The union is non-sccturi:'i ..
politically neutral. Both i!cn
women are admitted to membership.
TO START PROFIT
SHARING SYSTEM
Toledo, Jan. 29.-John N. Willys,
president of the Willys-Overland
company, issued a statement to his
employes yesterday announcing a
profit sharing plan with them on a
half and half basis. All the 10,000
men on the payroll will be affected
by this plan, which takes effect from
Jan. 1, 1919.
Profit sharing will be based on the'
length of time which the employe
has been with the company, and it
was estimated that the yearly share
of no employe will be less than $100.
The plan will be effective during
1919 and 1920. and each year there-
after if it proves satisfactory. A de-
tail plan which will recognize and
reward individual merit will be pre-
sented later, it was stated.

struction on important highway sub-
jects. This is being done through the
highway engineering department of
the school of civil engineering.

TRYOUTS FOR VARSITY BAND
NUMBERS THIRTY-FIVE MEN
The first Varsity band tryout was
held last night at the School of Mu-
sic. There were about 35 men out
for the band, a few of whom were
on last year's Varsity. The band will
be composed of about 60 men when
all of the positions are filled. About
15 men who were in last year's band
are expected to turn out for their
old positions within the next week.
With the prospects it now has in
sight, the band expects to make its
debut the first of next semester.
Life Study Gives
A uthority-Miller
"Authority of speech in any voca-
tion must come from the man who
has committed his life to that voca-
tion." says Dr. R. H. Miller, pastor
of the Central ChurchlofeChrist of
Detroit, who spoke last night at the
(Church of Christ.
"The authority of a poet comes
from the life of devotion that that
man has made to the study of poetry.
The authority of a doctor comes from
the life study of that man in medi-
cine. So when the poet speaks he
speaks through poetry a perfect rev-
elation of himself; when the doctor
speaks he reveals himself in his
practice from that life study. These
are the authorities of vocations but
in the authority of Jesus we find the
final authority - the authority of a
perfect revelation of God.
"In the next 25 years there will be
a new word for the old word of ev-
olution in education and that word
will be redemption. The social and
political redemption of all mankind."

Returned K. of C.
Nen to Be Aided
It is planned by the members of the
local council of the Knights of Col-
umbus to assist members of the ord-
er who are in the service to obtain
positions on their return home.
Plans for a reception in the near
future for those members who are
already home were made at a meeting
of the council held Tuesday night. It
was also decided to appoint' h com-
cittee whose duty it will be to look aft-
er those who return and secure posi-
tions for them. The membership of
the local order includes 284 active
members and 74 who are in the ser-
vice.
