One of the big picture plays of the
year lias been "The Escape" adapted
from the great play of Paul Arm
strong:, which has been arranged in
seven stirring reels by D. W. Griilith,
the producer of tlie "Birth of a Na
tion." This is a soul problem and will
le shown here at the Air Dome for
two nights. Wednesday and Thursday,
July liMh and 20th. The story in
brief is as follows
The play is preceeded by a pro
logue, "The Origin of Life."
May Joyce, a child of the slums,
longed for a better life. She con
tinually besought her father, a steve
dore, to try to better the condition of
his children. With the exception of
May these children were in a bad
way. Jenny was a pitiful example of
the visitation of the sins of the father
upon the children. Larry was fast
becoming a crook. lie was hit by a
stove lid thrown by his father in a
drunken fury. The wound h?aled, but
the boy's natural tendency was inten
sified. "Bull" McGee, a power of evil
in the neighborhood, wanted to marry
May. To pain her favor he had Larry
set upon and, and after a fight, ar
retted. McGee obtaining his release
from the police. There appears Dr.
Von Eiden an ambulance surgeon.
called to natch up Larry. Dr. Von
Siden was impiessed with the char
acter of May. "At all costs" he told
her, "escape from these surroundings".
Partially as a result of the faked sav
ing of Larry and because there seem
ed no escape, May passively agreed
to the marriage with McGee. On the
morning of the wedding, however, a
flyleaf message from Dr. Von Eiden
proved the deciding factor and she
left by the fire escape.
Janny's admiration lor brute power
caused her willingly to take May's
place. May found work in an office,
from which she was later discharged.
In the meantime she had met the Sen
ator, who, in admiration of her beauty
gave her his card reading, "If you ever
need a friend come to me."
Jenny's marriage resulted in a baby
boy which always cried, to the con
stant anger of McGee. McGee falling
over the cradle in a drunken stupor,
the child cried no more. May, unable
to obtain work, finally went to the Sen
ator and found the "easy way". A
fancied illness ied her to meeting Dr.
Von Eiden again. "You need now
more than ever to escape," he told
her. The Senator condescended to
offer May marriage, but she, influenced
by the words of Dr. Von Eiden, again
escaped and found the work she need
ed in a hospital.
McGee sold his wife to the promo
ters of a foreign concert dive. She
threw a note from the window and it
came into the hands of Larry. The
police raided the place and rescued
Jenny, who was brought to May only
to die. McGee escaped. lie traced his
wife with the hope of getting money
and found her dead. Leaving there,
he was tracked by the authorities and
finally cornered and shot by Larry,
who had joined the chase. His mur
derous tendencies now fully ai'oused,
Larry determined to kill his father.
He was, however, intercepted by Dr.
Von Eiden, who took him to his apart
ment. An operation was performed
on Larry and the splinter of bone,
which had so long penetrated his
brain, was removed. Through the
operation Larry became a normal
man. May's love for Dr. Von Eiden
at last awakened and the surviving
members of the Joyce family became
happily united. May's escape to a
better life was complete.

THE WHOLE MARVELOUS PICTURE THRILLS
WITH ONE VITAL QUESTION TO PARENTS:
"Who is the man your daughter is going to marry?
Do you judge him by his money, his earning capacity, or
his character and fitness to be your daughter's husband?"
Every man and women in America every youth
and girl over fifteen years should see "THE ESCAPE"
and KNOW what life is for thousands, perhaps millions
of people in the larger cities.
"THE ESCAPE" is a picture of life as it really is.
"THE ESCAPE" is endorsed by press and pulpit be
cause it teaches the great lesson of life with infinite power.
"More eloquent than the spoken Drama.
"More convincing than a thousands sermons.
"A lesson to those striving to better humanity.
"A thrilling drama of sex-eugenic science."
DR. ARTHUR D. HOUGHTON
A photo drama written in belief that all men are
brothers and that human beings, collectively, are respon
sible for human boings, individually a drama of the eu
genic science, showing many phases of life ranging from
the realistic to the visionary, from poverty to affluence,
from horror to supreme happiness. Civilization is as yet
only half complete. As much more remains to be done
as has already been accomplished. You must bear your
share of the burden and fight your part of the good fight.
