FRENCH WAR PINTINGS
ARE WORK OF SOLDIERS
EXPOSITION OPENS FRIDAY FOR
MEMBERS OF ART ASSO-
Paintings of 100 different French
artist make up the collection of war
pictures that has been brought to Ann
Arbor by M. Ludovic Leblanc, dele-
gate of the French High commission
to the United States. The exposition
will open at 7:30 o'clock Friday eve-
ning in Alumni Memorial hall.
The "varnishing night" will be open
only to members of the Ann Arbor
Art association, but anyone may be-
come a member of the association by
paying 50 cents at the door. The ad-
mission on other nights will be 10
cents. Monsieur Leblanc will give a
lecture at 8 o'clock.
Artist-Soldiers Win Fame
Most of the painters were soldiers
in the French army. Of the 85 who
are listed in the catalogue of the ex-
hibition,. 35 were wounded, eight were
prisoner in Germany, and two were
killed. Many were decorated. The
names of the other men whose works
are in the collection could not be put
in this catalogue because their paint-
ings were added too late.
The uniqueness of the collection is
attested by the foreword of the cat-
alogue written by Alice Roullier. Ex-
tracts from it are: "To him (the
French artist) departure for war en-
tailed a two-fold sacrifice. He offered
not 'only his life to his country but
something to him far more precious:]
the vision within him of imperishable
beauty, consciousness of which, in the
artist transcends all, sustains him in
the face of every alien element in
Debt Due War-Artists
"To these artist-soldiers who made
the supreme decision, the world is now
indebted for these amazing drawings
and paintings of the war. They con-
stitute certainly the most extraordin-
ary record of its kind ever brought to-
gether. All the more remarkable
when the conditions under which they
were executed are made known.
"One fact is incontestable: the sold-
ier is capable of visualizing for all
time the picturesque intensity of this

Added to Museum
Stingless bees, crickets that burrow
like moles, pill bugs that roll into
hard balls for protection as a turtle
withdraws into its shell, these and
many other rare specimens have been
added to the zoology museum collec-
tions through the work of Prof. H. H.
Bartlett of the botany faculty. All were
gathered during a year's stay in the
Dutch East Indian Island of Sumatra,
from which he returned the middle of
Insects of various kinds, many of
them of great interest for their scarc-
ity or newness to science are includ-
ed: 700 ants of many kinds, a series
of giant bee, grasshoppers, cock-
roaches, and other "natives" of this
Scorpions, centipedes, representa-

dition to researches made in Sumatra
is Professor Bartlett's own field, bot-
any. So bulky was his baggage that
he left Cther zoological collections
there, to be shipped at a later date.

AT THE ARCADE
Harold Lockwood in "The Great Ro-
mance" will be shown for the last
times today at the Arcade. A young
man dislikes his native land and says
so. He hates its ideas and ideals and
then suddenly finds himself the boss
of it with The Girl there also -
What does he do? Mr. Lockwood and
his leading lady, Ruby de Remer,
seem to enjoy romping through this
romantic story as much as the audi-
ence enjoys seeing them.
As an extraordinary attraction, Naz-
imova's great screen play "Out of the
Fog' has been secured for tomorrow
and Friday. The photoplay was
adapted from her famous stage play,
" 'Ception Shoals," in which she scor-
ed a tremendous hit on the speaking

AT THE WUERTH
Prince Sebastian, ruler of Lurania,
has refused to sell his country to the
Germans "for a scrap of paper" and
is in hiding with his equerry, Ferdus-
si, while his niece, Countess Therese,
known as "Driver 447," drives an am-
bulance on the French front.
This is the opening situation in
"The Mystery Girl," the screen adap-
tation of George Barr McCutcheon's
poular story, "Green Fancy," which
is being shown today and tomorrow
at the Majestic with Ethel Clayton
in the title role.
A carrier pigeon arrives with a
"Help! Help! Police!" George
Walsh's photoplay, in which he is ap-
pearing for the last times today at the
Wuerth, is said to be distinctlyf
George Walsh, which means, full of
thrills and action. The play is also
typically Walshian in that many of
the thrills and most of the action
end humorously. The star seems to
delight in doing some devil-may-care
thing and then inviting his audience to
join with him in laughing at the in-
