ST"NDAY, :NOVEMBTEI1 , 19

ITHEATR
W uerth
"If Winter Comes," A. S. M. Hutch-
inson's famous novel, dramatized for
the screen in such a way as to retain
in the picturized version the power
and vitality which made for its suc-
cess in book form, is featured at the
Wuerth today. The picture was pho-
tographed in England and the old Eng-
lish streets, together with interior
scenestofBritish home-life, strike one
with their strict obedience to Ilutch-
inson's prose version.
"If Winter Comes" tells the story of
a pair of mismated couples who re-
volt, each expressing his or her con-
nubial distresses in a different way.
During the flow of the story, from
Mark Sabre's first acknowledgement
of the fact that he has made an un-
wise marriage, to his eventful mar-
riage to Lady Tybar, who had like-
wise suffered under a mis-alliance, a
tense dramatic action predominates.
The courtroom at Tidborough, where
Mark Sabre is tried for the death of
Effie Bright, is an exact replica of an
English court of justice. The climax
of the story-the big court room scene
-brings a tightening of the heart and
a tenseness of muscles which relax
only when Sabre staggers out of the
court-room pursued by threatening
mob. Percy Marmont stars as Mark
Sabre and Margaret Fielding as Ma-
ble. The Wuerth Concert Orchestra
will present the original New York
Musical Score under the personal i-
rection of Nicholas Falcone.
Stan Laurel in "The Handy Man"
and Pathe news constitute the remain-
der of the program for this week.
Majestic
Elinor Glyn's latest screen story,
"Six Days," is featured at the Majestic
today through Wednesday. Corrine
Griffith heads the cast as . Laline
Kingston, a young American girl en-
gagedto Sir Charles Chetwyn, a
wealthy Englishman. Frank Mayo, in
support of Miss Griffith, plays the role
of Dion Leslie, the lover.
Engaged to Sir Charles Chetwyn, at
the behest of her mother for financial
and social reasons, the young Ameri-
can girl, Laline, loses her he- r
Dion Leslie, son of a famous actress
n nlearin In Par-" Tr..1
prisoned, along with a priest-guid
in a Gerian dugout whicn coIapoe
when a secret mine is exploded by
touching a German helmet. Facing
death, the lovers are married by te'
priest. In their efforts to escape, after
the death of the priest, they fall into a
chalk mine, become separated and
eventually both are rescued. Believ-
ing Dion dead, Laline is forced by her
mother to marry Sir Charles. The
process by which the lovers are re-
united forms the exciting climax to the
picture.
Larry Semon appears in a special
comedy, "The Midnight Cabaret," a
new Aesop Fable Cartoon, and Bar-
tram and Saxton in a new group of
songs, conclude the program.
"Held to Answer" comes to the Ma-
jestic Thursday to remain until Satur-
day. House Peters plays the leading
role and Grace Carlyle takes the lead-
ing feminine part.
The story is that of an actor who,
disillusioned by an unhappy love af-
fair, turns to preaching. His reputa-
tion and popularity as a 'preacher are
seriously threatened when he is false-
ly accused of theft by an actress
whose love he has rejected. Refusing
to divulge the identity of the culprit
whom he knows, the people of the
community ask him to resign, but he
refuses.How he isexoneratedand
reg'ains his prestige forms the absorb-
ing climax of a gripping tale of a
man's man.
Bartran and Saxton in a new song
program, "Fool Proof," a Christy com-
edy, and Kinograms conclude the pro-
gram.
Arcade
Agnes Ayres and Jack Holt are fea-

tured in the principal roles in the1
"Marriage Maker" which comes to the!
Arcade today through Wednesday.
The story, by Edward Knoblock, has

for its central situation the adven-
tures among a group of civilized folk
of a strange creature-a. Faun, and
his attempts to get beneath the ve-
neer of society. Two couples are
about to be separated-one because
of poverty, the other because of an
empty title. The complications whioh
hrise from the attempts of this crea-
ture of the woods to prevent mishaps
arising from these sources furnish
the peculiarly interesting situations
of the story.
"The Eternal Three," picturize
from Marshall Neilan's original story
will be presented at the Arcade on
j Thursday to remain until Saturday.
Hobat Bosworth, Claire Windsor, and
Raymond Griffith feature as the mem-
Ibers of the eternal triangle.
Dr. Waltersthesurgeon hero of
the story, marries a young wife, who
becomes fascinated by the gay charm
of her husband's graceless foster son,
Leonard. The boy suffers a serious
brain injury through his mad haste to
meet the surgeon's wife and elope
with her. Only a delicate operation
can save him. Dr. Walters has learn-
ed the state of affairs between his
wife, and Leonard and the question
that confronts him is, shall I live up
to the oath of my surgical profession
or let my own private feelings domin-
ate and give the knife an undetected
twist.
The Mexican scenes in "The Etern-
al Three" were pictred in their na-
tive locale. Mr. Neilan took his staff
and his leading actors to Mexico City
and later to a ranch at Chapultepec
where the castle of President Obre-
gon was photographed.
Orpheum
Today through Tuesday the Or-
pheum presents D. W. Griffith's "One
Exciting Night" The program for
Wednesday and Thursday is "When
Love Comes," with Helen Jerome Ed-
'dy and Harrison Ford, a comedy and
snapshots. "Bucking the Barrier," and
Edna Murphy in "Her Dangerous
Path" will be featured at the Orpheum.
on Friday and Saturday of this week.
Union Has Large
Mechanical Plant
To many students the fourth di-
mension is about as familiar as the
second or lowest basement of the
Union. Most people think the Union
has four floors, and a basement where-
in the tap room, barber shop, and
bowling alleys are housed, but in
reality there is a large basement be-
low even that. It is the little talked
about, though the most interesting me-
chanical plant of .the .building, deep
in the ground. It is the location of
all the machinery that is needed to
provide a large number of conveni-
ences in the building which are taken
pretty much as a matter of course.
Five men-an engineer, two assist-
ant engineers, an electrician and a
carpenter spend their entire time just
in keeping the machinery and the
mechanical plant of the Union in re-
pair. There are the elevators to be
kept in running order, the water soft-
ening plant to be kept in efficient op-
eration, the refrigerating plant to be
looked after, and the ventilation sys-
tem. Besides, there are 42 electric
motors in the building, in addition
to innumerable fans.
The expense of this mechanical de-
partment, which of course is a separ-
ate department entirely from the
cleaning department, is a part of the
overhead expense in running the
building. The amount of $7,561.55
was needed last year for wages in the
department and various machine parts
which had to be replaced. The elec-
trical power which was used by m"-
tors and fans totalled $2,116.45, while
the water that was used in the refrig-
erating plant cost $946.60. These itr-
of expense are in a department which
is obviously non-revenue producing,
and the funds for maintaining this
club service for members of the Un-
ion, must come from the revenue-pro-
ducing departments.

ThneStage
Whitney
One of the most interesting attrac-
tions of the season, will appear at the
Whitney Theatre on Saturday, Novem-
ber 10, when Miss Elsa Ryan will ap-
pear in Dewitt Newing's comedy-
drama, "The Circus Lady."
The story, in brief, is of La Patrice,
a young parachute jumper of a tra-
veling carnival, who falls into a tree
in the garden of a young parson: is
loved by him, and saves him from the
wiles of a designing female. The plot
of "The Circus Lady" is in no wise
involved; it tells a sweet love story
with just enough intrigue to excite
the interestofuthe audience and keep
it at a lively pitch.
Those who saw Miss Ryan last sea-
son in "The Intimate Strangers,"
Booth Tarkington's delightful comedy,
in which she scored a distinct success,
will be highly pleased with the charm
of her artistry in "The Circus Lady,"
which gives her wide scope for her
abilities as a comedienne, as well asI
for dramatic power.I
GarrickI
"Up She Goes" comes. to the Shu-
bert Garrick Theatre tonight under
William A. Brady's management. Mr.
Brady has picked a brilliantly clever
cast-Gloria Foy who became famous
when the play was given in New York,
Marjory Sweet, last seen in Detroit
in "Take It From Me"; Arthur Utley,
Jack Hartley and Frederick Graham.
X. 0. T. C. Rifle Team Organized
