' The story of "My Four Years In
Germany" written by Ambassador
James W. Gerard, which will be
shown at tho Sammy Girls theatre
next Friday and Saturday with two
performances doily, 7:30 and 9:00 ip.
m. is tho filmed version of tho actual
experiences of our Ambassador at tho
court of tlio Kaiser during his four
years ln Berlin; and It is said that
this production Is exceptionally well
made and founded upon fact, NOT
FICTON. Throughout tho making of
tho film Mr. Gerard was In closo touch
with William Nigh, who directed tho
produbtion, and tlio scenes and details
wero staged -with painstaking care
in every detail. Nothing will so clarl-,
fy ln tho minds of tho people the'
reason why America is at war with
tho autocratic dictator of Europo as a'
clear and lucid .tale of hidden forces!
working for tho downfall of America j
and tho forces of democracy. Tho re- J
suit of the Gorman inability to really ;
understand America is clearly shown
by tho Incidents which took placo In
Germany before the war and In which
our Ambassador, James W. Gerard,
was involved. Tho wholo history of
uorman intrigue, diplomacy and
double dealing is said to bo disclosed
ln an, interesting picturlzation of Mr.
Gerard's book. "Wlion on October
25th, 1915, tho Kaiser shook his fist
