Will Present Two Plays in Original

According to those who have charge
of the prodution to be given here
Tuesday, Jan. 16, by a company of
;prominent French actors, appearing in
this country under the name of "The-
ater Independent Francais d'Ameri-
que" Ann Arbor is to enjoy an unusual
privilege. Besides the fact that most
of the members of the troupe are well
known to Theater Giers of Paris, this
is to be the first production by French
actors ever given in Ann Arbor.
Two short comedies in original
French will be presented, Marivaux's

London, Jan. 12.-(Special.,-The
cataclysm of a world war has forced
England to apply real American meth-
ods to her government. Lloyd-George's
reorganized cabinet is but a glorified
American city council under a commis-
sion form of government.
England, as a nation, faced exactly
the same problems that confronted
-hundreds of American cities before the
advent of the Galveston and Des
Moines plans for administering mu-
nicipal affairs. Great Britain had a
council that was unwieldy; its decis-
ions were taken after ridiculously long
debates and the mistakes it made could
not be traced to any responsible
source. Such was the condition of af-
fairs in Des Moines, Ia., and other
American cities during the time they
labored under the old ward-council
English people for two years have
watched the government pile one mis-
adventure upon another, and the cost
to them was not represented in money
but in the lives of the nation's best
men. In one short week Lloyd-George,
England's strong man, wiped out an
inefficient, ward-council plan of gov-
ernment and substituted the commis-
sion of five men, who are held directly
responsible for the conduct of the na-
tion's affairs Each controls certain
portions of the country's business and
each commissioner, or cabinet member
has been proved capable. '
There also is a queer analogy be-
tween the origin of commission form of
government in American and England.
In the year 1878, there was a scourge
of yellow fever in Memphis, Tenn., due
to its poor sanitary system. The city
had incurred a debt equal to its bor-
rowing power and the legislature, in
1879, established a commission to take
charge of its affairs. This was one of
the first commission plans. In the
year 1900, Galveston, Tex., was over-
whelmed by a tidal wave which pros-
trated the city financially. It was
placed under a commission govern-
ment. In the year 1916, England Was
on the verge of being overwhelmed by
a world war and a commission plan of
government was applied to its national
Berlin, via Wireless to Sayville, Jan.;

out the following:
"The prelate knight, von Gerlach
(Mgr. Gerlach), has been forced to
leave Rome, and has arrived at Lu-
gano, Switzerland. He was the only
German prelate in the pope's retinue.
The entente, through the intermediary
of the Italian government, urgently in-
sisted upon his departure. Although
he belonged to the personal service of
the holy father, the vatican had to
submit to the unprecedented coercion
of the entente."
Mgr. Gerlach, who is an Austrian,
has been mentioned in connection with
the destruction of the Italian battle-
ships Benedetto Brin and Leonardo da
Vinci. One of the prisoners, an Ital-
ian named Ambrogetti, charged with
being implicated in the destruction of

Harrison Fisher, well known author,
says of "A Daughter of the Gods": "I
think hundreds of thousands of per-
sons must share my own view about
the majority of motion pictures. Most
of the large picture spectacles are so
filled with violence, crimes and brutal-
ities or gruesomeness that I will avoid
pictures in the future.
"Imagine my delight, therefore, over
'A Daughter of the Gods,' which I
have seen in advance, by invitation;
not merely once, but several times. A
picture at last for the millions of
American women and children; a pic-
ture bof pure fantasy and delicacy of
story for all clean-brained people.
"This is a picture to win new con-
verts to the screen throughout the
world. The cause of modern art owes
much to William Fox, the producer of
this gorgeous spectacle."
"A Daughter of the Gods" will be

at the Whitney theater on Thursday,
Jan. 18, the farce, "Fair and Warmer"
which was famous all over the coun-
try before one-half of its year run
was completed at the Harris theater,
New York.
"See 'Fair and Warmer' when it
comes here," was the admonition of
every visitor to New York when he
reached his home town. It played to
capacity houses at every performance,
and before it was four months old, it
had bettered the brilliant record of
"Within the Law."
Selwyn and company has selected
an admirable cast of farceurs for its
local presentation.

Despite an apparent revival of both
artillery and infantry engagements
along most of the western front, in-
terest in the war moves today was still
centered on the Roumanian and Rus-

statement reported continued progress
toward Galatz and detailed an incident
of the river fighting. Laburtea was
captured. To the west in Moldavia Ber-
lin claims repulse of enemy attacks
north and south of the Susita valley
and storming of several Russian posi-

official statement indicated the Rus-

The average payment to each
uardsman's family is $25, but many
eceive the full maximum payment of
50 a month. The amount allotted to
ach family is gauged by the amount
he guardsman previously contributed
o its support. For European relief
vork the American Red Cross expendi-
ure during the first two years of the
Nar amounted to $2,005,553-or several
housands less than this government
xpended for families dependent upon
oldiers doing border duty..
Added to these contributions other
aillions have been collected by special
elief committees for use in Europe,
articularly in Belgium, Poland, Ar-
nenia *and Syria. Illustrating the
roportions these contributions have
eached from time to time, at a single
leeting in New York recently $2,500,-
00 was contributed for Jewish relief
lone. In connection with the Ameri-
an Red Cross distribution of funds it
s interesting to note that :of the $2,-
05,000 expended during the first two
ears of the war, more than a million
as gone to the entente allies and less
ian $400,000 to the Teutonic powers.
France Received $445,000.
Of the allied countries, France re-
eived the greatest sums from the Red
ross, more than $445,000 going to that
ountry. Serbia was next with $234,-
03; while Montenegro received the
nallest sum-$19,510. Germany re-
eives the bulk of attention among the
eutonic allies, $122,029 being con-
'ibuted by the Red Cross. Bulgaria
rew the little end of the horn, receiv-
ig but $3,393.
Owing to the fact that collections of
e Red Cross have been almost en-
rely depleted, the organization is con-
mplating another appeal to Ameri-
ans on behalf of European war suf-
rers. President Wilson has added
is voice to past appeals of the organ-
