he val series, May 15 to 18, in Hill audi-
ium, is the youngest star of the Met-

RILROAD UOMMIdSION
INCLUDES ALL ROAD EMPLOYEES
WITH MONTHLY PAY OF
LESS THAN $250
}'Washington, May 8.-- All railroad
employees, whose monthly pay in
December, 1915, was less than $250,
have been recommended for wage in-
creases by the railroad wage commis-
Extent of Increase
The recommendations, if adopted by
,Director general McAdoo, would give
the workers $100,000,000 in back pay,
and would add $288,013,718 to the pay-
roll of 1917.
Wage advances do not represent
net increases over existing pay, but
are based on the month of December,
1916. In some cases, deduction will
almost, if not altogether, cover the,
increase according to the report.
Apprentices Omitted
Slight increases of $20 a month are
proposed for all employees,. except ap-
prentices receivihg $46 or less and all
others up to $239 would get advances
ranging from 43 per cent down-
ward -to 4.6 per cent. Above $239,
flat increases will be given to make
the wage $260.
Mr. McAdoo is studying the report
which was made public tonight, and
will decide what increases should be
allowed.
"AMAZONS" READY
FOR PERFORMANCE'
Snappy action, clever costumes, and
well-polished lines characterized the
first dress rehearsal of the "Amazons,"
which is to be given at 8 o'clock to-
night and tomorrow night in Sarah
Casw-ell Angell hall under the au-
spicesof the Women's league. Harm-
ony between the dress of the charact-
ers and the well-chosen scenery was
also a conspicuous element. In fact,
all details of the rehearsal indicated
a splendid production.
"After eight weeks," said Professor'
Raleigh J. Nelson, the director in
charge, "I am delighted with the tal-
ent displayed by the cast and espec-
ially with the enthusiasm with which
each -member has thrown herself into
the action of the play. I am sure of
pleasing everyone with our interbre-
tation of "Amazons."
