EST PLAYS 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. GEORGE SCIIANZ IMPROVING George Schanz of this city, wjio has been having considerable trouble with his eyes is feeling greatly improved since his return from the hospital in Omaha where he was for six weeks recovering from an operation for his eyes and which has resulted in a much better condition.
