A MERE STIPEND
With the increased power of the
German Nationalists, the question of
the monarchy versus the republic is
agan assuming a position of import-
ance in public debate. The discussion
was started by Nationalist criticism
of Republican wastefulness, but the
latter have more than retaliated by
an exposition of the cost of monarchy
to Germany previous to the revolu-
tion. Salaries of the eight kings and
dukes of Germany, including the
Kaiser, before the war totaled $8,-
570,000 according to defenders of the
republic. And in tis huge sum the
income from the prvate properties of
the monarchs is not included. This
is contrasted in the debate with the
modest salary of the president of the
republic which has been fixed at $25,-
000, a palace and stipend of $7,000 for
running expenses also being fur-
nished.
As a means of convincing Germant
taxpayers that continuation of the re-1
public is closely related to the size1
of their pocketbook,,an elaborate scalej
of the salaries of the past and present
potentates of the world has been pre-r
pared. 'ihe late Czar of Russia

" THE IEDEEMliNG SI N"
A review, by Robert IHenderson.
There is very little to be said about,
this latest picture with Nazimova and
Lou Tellegen. Quite simply, it is
probably the most convincing film she
has ever made, an 1(lier acting, Espe-
cially her amazing pantonmimne, places
her as one of the immortelles: the
movies, surely, have never seen wnch
inspired work, and more itmportait-
it flatly wipes out the impossible his-
appointment of "Madonna of the
Streets." You should be worried over
yourself if you cannot appreciate its
power and beauty.
