Direct Appeal M
O n Enforcemea
Direct appeal to the public opinion
and patriotism of the bulk of the
American citizens as a means of bring-
ing about the enforcement of the pro-
hibition amendment, was the essence
of the plans laid by the National Citi-
zenship conference which met in a
Washington recently.
"We have fired the first gun of the
second battle of the Marne," was the,
statement of the committee on resolu-
tions. We challenge those who 'are,
opposed to the eighteenth amendment
o come into the open and have-the
pourage to repeal it if they can and
the manhood to observe it until they]
can. Hip-pocket guardians of libertyI
and defenders of the constitution are
teaching the doctrine of qualified alI
legiance. The man who upholds the I
constitution must uphold the whole
of it."
. Emphasis was laid on the disgrace
of the present lack of observance of

the law of the land and plans made
for curtailing the ridicule- of the law
which, is at present so flagrant.
Organizations are to be formed all
over the country, whose iurpose will
be the spreading of sentiment toward
obeyance of the eighteeneth amend-
ment, according to the organization's
plans. Among the organizations to be
formed. is one providing for the partic-
ipation of-the colleges of the country.
These organizations, when formel<,
will spread their propaganda by means
of speakers, to clean up the doubts
entertained by many American citi.
zens 'as to the desirability of prohibi-
tion. It will be the aim of the organi-
zation to obtain definite stands on the
question by candidates for office. At-
tempts will be made to obtain the co-
operation of newspapers and the mo-
tion picture industry in doing away
with ridicule of the law which at pres-
ent is so evident in cartoons and pro-
ductions on the screen.

in New York, Paris and Vienna and
represent the last word in the array
of gowns.
"Modern Matrimony," in which
Owen Moore stars, comes to the Ar.
cade the last three days of this week.'
fThe picture is an up-to-the-minute
satire ton the. modern bride 'and groom
and their efforts to start housekeeping
on a limited income by means of the
installment plan--a dollar down and
a dollar when you catch me. Win-
some Alice Lake plays the bride.
After many futile attempts-and hil-
arious etperiences-in their efforts to
secure an apartment which is fit to
live in and yet within their slender
means, the young bride and groom
decide that the problem will be solved
by purchasing a home on the install-
ment plan. And so they are lured to
a cozy little nest in Swampus Manor
where they utilize the same pay-as-
you-like principle in completely fur-
nishing thre easily acquired house. Ob-
viously the happy groom has no moreI
than slipped the ring on the bride's
finger when his troubles begin-antl
they follow in a continuous stream
from the altar to the climax of this
whirlpool of laughs and surprises.
Werth .
Harold Lloyd is introduced in hls
new feature comedy, "Why Worry,"
as a young man who ."has taken so
many pills that he rattles when he
walks." And when the story is ended
he has filled the revolutionists so full
of cannon ball, 'and the audience so'
full of laughs that they can't walk.
The story is laid in a romantic at-
mosphere of carefree senors and danc-
ing senoritas, fighting hombres and
pompous generals. Throughout the
farce runs a little vein of satire-a
jibe hete and there at the blood-curd-
ling pictures of 3outh American revo-
lutions.
The-story 'centers about an' Ameri-
can youth, acdtistomed to luxury, who
has a flare of adventure in his 'make-
up. He goes to South America and
promptly becomes enmeshed in a
fierce, fiery and flaming revolution.
One mirthful, hilarious situation after
who is 'only eighteen years old, is
another result, each situation inextric-
ably bound up with the plot. Here
are real characters and entirely prob-
able situations exaggerated to a state
of absurdity that yet remains within-
the realms of possibility.
Ha'old Lloyd has chosen for his
leading lady in "Why Worry," Jobyna
Ralston, quite the daintiest and most

petite 'of new actresses. Miss Jobyna,
making her screen debut in this pic-
ture, supplanting Mildred Davies.
who took one of those "for-better-or-
worse" life jobs with Harold. A new
figure to appear on the scrben for the
first time in this picture is John Aasen,
declared to be the biggest man in the
world. He is 8'feet, 9 1-4 inches tall
and weighs 460 pounds. This "human
mountaini an easily ,be imagined a
highly diverting 'fi for the slender
and agile Lloyd throughout the pic-
turization.
Hal Roach presenting:his rascals in
"No Noize" -and Pathe news conclude
the Wuerth's program throughout the
entire week.
Majestic
Rex Beach's story .of the Klondike
gold rush, "The Spoilers," is featured
at the Majestic Theatre today and
through Wednesday. The productior
is on a bigger and more spectacular
scale than was the original screen suc-
. cess produced ten years ago by Colo-
nel Selig. "The Spoilers" is a true
picture of life in the gold rush and
the attempt of certain unprinciple'
. adventurers to jump the claims of the
early miners. .Its story has a pecu-
liar fascination over the minds of red-
blooded Americans-the fight, of
course, being the high spot of the
story. A remarkable cast is seen ir
the picture with Milton Sills as the
hero; Ann Nilsson as' Cherry Malotte,
the loyal -dancehall queen; and Bar-
bara Bedford as Helen Chester, the in-
Ihocent heroine.
But ,It isn't the remarkable "cast
which makes "The .Spoilers" the pic-
ture it is. It is the story. f Rex-Beach
describes 'at' first hand the feverish
fight for gold when the eands' of the
Yukon' suddenly turned .yellow . and
gives an account of how the miners
were despoiled of some .of their rich-
est properties by corrupt politicians.
And then the crashing climax comes
In that epic fight in which Glennister
and McNamara settle their scores.
J. S. Stein and his.Ten Northern
Collegians will entertain Majestic au-
diences this Week with their varied
program of singing, 'dancing and en-
tertaining. The company have just
completed the Orpheum Circuit in
Chicago and are contracted to play the
Keith first circuit into New York next
month.
Buster Keaton in "Hospitality," his
new feature length comedy, comes to
the Majestic Thursday through Satur-
day together with a new two reel com-
edy, "Down To The Ships To See,"
and Kinograms. Stein's Band will
appear in an entirely new program the
latter part of the week.
