After Touring Europe, Dr. Vander
kleed Believes America Will
Be Able to Capture For
eipi Trade.
(Cocrepondene of the Associated Press.)
BERLIN, May 10. The war af
fords America an opportunity to be
come the drug and chemical center
of the world. In place of London and
Amsterdam, If America but knows
enough to grasp the advantage, la the
opinion of Dr. C. E. Vanderkleed,
chief chemist of a big Philadelphia
manufacturing and biological cheml
cal concern, who has been touting
Europe for several months.
This possible leadership may come
Vnvr nnlv In riM American
. . . .. ..... . '
chemists aeveiop tne aouuy 10 mane
synthetic chemicals as Germany al
ready has done, out of the raw and
crude materials that come largely
from South and Central America, and
that now, because of danger of ship
ping, are being sent In huge quanti
ties to New York, Instead of Amster
dam and England.
Oiv-e America achieves some of the
highly specialised German ability along
this line, he believes, it will be abla to
compete for all time" with the rest of the
world, and attract to itself the lion's
. share of the raw materials so cloae at
Market for gemma.
Dr. Vanderkleed's travels through Ger
many, Austria, Holland and Denmark
have shown him that there is a scarcity
of riorums in practically all of the coun
tries at war, as well as a scarcity of
some opiates. There is consequently a
market here for every ounce that can be
made in America and shipped over.
Practically every laboratory in Europe,
. he finds, is manufacturing to the limit
of Its capacity serums for tetanus, dys
entery and spinal meningitis, three of the
great war eco.irges. Bach fountry, how
ever. Is hampered by two things the
length of time that is necessary to pro
duce serums of the requisite strength and
a universal shortage of the high grade
horses used m tho manufacture of the
medicines. '
A comparatively small quantity of
tetanus serum, when injected very soon
after a soldier has been wounded in
such a way that the dreaded lockjaw is
liable to set In, will save him. says Dr.
Vanderkleed. But in case there Is delay
In the Injection something that 'fre
quently happens because of the exi
gencies of warfare it takes an infinitely
greater amount of medicine to offset the
disease. And under the present clrcum
stances, and shortage, he believes, no
country has a sufficient quantity on hand
to be able to dose Its patients with the
necessary liberality when there has been
great delay.
Plenty of Vaeclae.
In contrast to the shortage of serums,
; Dr. Vanderkleed finds that all the nations
seem to be fairly well supplied with the
necessary vaccines, which can be and are
being prepared - In great quantities, and
In a comparatively short time.;
The" time difference between making
the serums and the vaccines Is due to the
essential differences in the characteristics
of the two medicines. The vaccine is-but
a quantity of the dead bacteria of a
given disease, which, when injected Into
the blood, causes no harm, but does
stimulate the growth of live anti-bodies
that ward off the disease If It comes.
Tha serum, on the other hand, takes
from three to six months In preparation,
and consists of a quantity of live anti
' bodies that have been painstakingly
; brought up to a standard of strength.
: They are created by inoculating sound
' mad healthy horses with Increasingly
large doses of bacteria1 of a given disease,
' The animal, less subject than any other
to the disease, gradually and Increasingly
generates a powerful antl-tosin, and
when In the proper state of health will
eventually yield from three to four quarts
of the serum.
Vaccination Compulsory.
Germany and Austria, Dr. Vanderkleed
finds, manufactured great quantities of
typhoid vaccine, and have on hand plenty
of vaccine for cholera, plague and other
diseases to which the soldiers may be
liable. Following the example of the
United States, these countries have, dur
ing the war, introduced compulsory vac
cination against typhoid in their armies.
With the single exception of cecalne,
Germany at least possesses all the opiates
it needs. There are quantities of chloro
form, ether, morphine and opium on
hand. The cocaine Is coming In from
New York, which pets It in turn from
South America.
To Kino extent also there is a market
here. Dr. Vanderkleed. believes, for chem
icals out of which can be made materials
for combatting the insect pest that Is
such n factor In the esst.
Old Metals Go to
The Melting Pot
(Correspondence of the Associated Press.)
BiatLIN, May 10. So great has been
the flood of eld metals for melting pur
potes, that the war ministry haa had to
issue a statement, thanking the donors.
but declaring the lack of metal 'a not
sufficient to necessitate such sacrifice.
"Of late," says the ministry, "there
have been accumulating In the raw ma
terials of the war divlaoln of the minis
try, metal objects of all kinds from the
housltold and the factory, even church
bells, for the use of the army. It Is lm-
p.slh!s tc thank each sender for his laud'

speeks in this way it gratitude.
"The army authorities do not wish t
take advantage of this movement, be
cause at the present there is no short
age of old metal Aside from this fact,
the less well-to-do circles of our popula
tion would be apt to compete In a spirit
of sacrifice in giving to the fatherland

JWnday afternoon. May 1, for
one week at the MrandelS
theater in that thrilling pic
torial drama of human sacrifice and de
votion, "The tTnrtylng More of the Ex
pedition of Captain Ttobert Falcon Scott
to the South role,' the patrons will see
a drama from the book of life, the liv
ing record of the most daring and bril
liant adventure of modorn times and will
know Just how real, not Imagined heroes,
act in life. Tragic and thrilling are
many of the scenes, hut of absorbing
Interest, which is heightened by the in
spiring narrative given by so noted aa
actor as Charles B. Hanford, who was !
personally selected because of his dis
tinguished position on the stage to give
this story of heroes of our own lay.
As you sit in a comfortable orchestra
seat you will travel far from your homes
to the Uttermost South, the land which
for over ISO years baffled, eluded and
circumvented every effort of man to
open It to ' the knowledgo of the world.
Tet in this drama of astounding adven-
ture you can see the very Uttermost
fha lanJ of tnl Qreat su.
ence. Just as It actually exists and was
seen by Captain Scott and his compan
ions. This Is due to the fact that Cap
tain Scott was the first explorer to make
the art of photography a separate part
of an Antarctic expedtti-m and took with
him Herbert O. I'onttng, Fellow of the.
Royal Geographical society, as Ills offic
ial camera artist. The records are all
animated and are authentic, which adds
much to their worth and include the
views found on the bdy of Captain
The drama begins with the sailing of
the Terra Nova from Prtrt Chalmers, New
Zealand, a terrible storm at sea Is en
countered, then come the giant Icebergs,
looming up grim, white and majestic, as
tho South Vv)ar continent Is reached.
The unloading .f the Terra Nova is
shown, the "erection of the winter quar
ters and the daily life and work of the
men of the expedition Is seen. Climbing
giant Icebergs on skis is viewed as a
fast If somewhat dangerous means of
locomotion. Then there are the various
methods of transportation, by dog teams,
motor sledges and ponies'.
The beauty of the scenery of the Great
White South is seen Illuminated by the
brilliancy of the midnlpht sun. Then you
6tart and travel to the very south pole
and see the actual location of that Il
lusive point and make the terrible return
Journey to death and glory with Scott.
Scott's loyalty to truth In giving Amuna
den full credit for hla success will im
press you. Then there is the irresistibly
funny comedy furnished by the fantastic
penguins, the Antarctic comedians.
At the Boyd this week the bill will be
Tess of the Storm Country," a play by
Rupert Hughes, based on the novel of
tbe same name. It la a picture of life
among tha lowly, with some very
dramatic Incidents and a number of
really unique characters. The scrota ars
laid in the lake and Umber region of
northern New York, and the persons in
the play are mostly squatters, poachers
and fishermen, almost outlaws, into this
community comes Paul Graves, son of a
millionaire and .a preacher, who has
given up a fashionable pulpit In New
York that he may labor among the
storm country folk. He meets Tesslbel
Skinner, daughter of Orn Skinner, a
leader among the poachers, who has been
accused of murder. Tess, la her rags,
unkempt and untrained. Is beautiful, and
the young man Is attracted to her. He
undertakes to assist her in her fight for
her father's life, and soon she gets a
chance to return his favor In a way he
doesn't realise. His sister, Taola, de
ceived and desperate, has no place to go,
and Tess takes her In and takes the
baby, letting It be thought that It Is her
own. Then matters rush to a swift and
logical finish. The scenes of th i play
permit some very artistic stage settings,
and as the characters are mostly types,
the comedy of the play Is naturally de
veloped. Miss Gates. Is to play Tess; Mr.
Lynch will be the young preacher Mr.
Llndholm his millionaire father. Miss
Keppler his sister, Mr. Price will be
Penn Letts, cause of it all, and others
cf the company will be seen In good

night the drill team of Camp 120. Mod
ern Woodmen, of America, will give an
exhibition drill. . .
The program for this week at the Hipp
theater is unusually noteworthy.
Today, Monday and Tuesday "Hypo

the most remarkable ' picture ever pro
duced, 'will be shown. The use of su-

Mary Fickford, the "most popular girl
In America." will be seen Wednesday

Charlie Chaplin pictures and they will
te shown the first change after released
by the film company. These pictures will
ail be first run In Omaha. Tha feature
photo-play for Sunday and for the first
lalf ot tha week is "The Profligate."
Rivington Street
FEEL moved to add a word to
the Rivington Street story be
cause I know the whole ot It
and M. li. says I may finish It.
Rivington street was one of
my "adventures In content
ment." an alarming number of years
ago. Back of the dignified and beautiful
old New York mansion whloh was the
settlement was a little back yard, per
haps twenty-five feet square (dimensions
are always hard for me), mostly sand
and swings. Eager looking children
waited for hours with tickets for a turn
at the swings, which they called "the
scups." In one corner, by looking care
fully you could discern a faint greenness.
This was always spoken of by us as
"Mikey's grass." No one really knew how
he got the seed or when he planted It,
but he had the gardener's "touch" and
his grass grew for him. Morning and
evening he watered and worshiped it. It
was an event. All visitors were shown
Mikey's grass.
Mlkey was a boy about I small and
pale, who tended the Incessant doorbell
and had one good meal a day at the set
tlement, ile was taken on a great occa
sion to walk on Fifth avenue and when
he saw the little children of the rich
walking sedately In their beautiful
clothes he said, "Well, I guess they wish
they could have some of our good times "
Mlkey miist be about 30 now and I hope
he has a iawn and a garden.

For Thursday and the last half of the
week Is Captain Auger In a comedy
sketch, "Jack tha Giant Killer;" Fred
and May Waddell In a singing and
danolng and club swinging novelty;
Herschell Handler, the poet of the piano,
and Hazel Morris, the wizard of ragtime,
complete the vaudeville offering. A big
assorted program of comedies, dramas
and weeklies, with "The Breath of
Araby," with Helen Gardner, is the photo
feature for the last half.
The success of the dlsnlsy of the Will
iamson Expedition Submarine moving
pictures at the Gayety throughout the
last week has wisely prompted the man
agement to continue this six-reel series
for four more showings today only, start
ing at 1, 3:. 7:10 and 0 p. m.
Great crowds have witnessed the dis
plays during the week and have marveled
at the audacity of George and Ernest
Williamson's daring In securing these
pictures upwards of 100 feet below the
ocean's surface, one of them hrlnir an.
rased In a flexible steel tube, on the ex-
treme lower side of which was a plate
glass window through which the pictures 1
were made. Schools cf fish In their
native haunts, coral beds, beautiful nut- I
rine gsrdens, sponge fishing and all man-
ner of deep sea life are pictured with
unfailing fidelity now for the first time
by a moving picture camera. i
To actually see a life and death battle
between a man and a vil lous shark Is '
not a sight one's eyes are sccustomed to,
yet the Williamson brothers filmed Just. 1
such an event and, It and a thousand j
other Interesting marine scenes are shown
at each display of the films, the very
last chances to see which or our st the 1

was the asphalt street (enchanting in its
variety and Its lovely spirit of kind
gaiety) said once to me, with a longing
look in his dark Syrian eyes, "I always
enjoy green fields." If you say that
slowly and with a little feeling it sounds
like poetry. At any rate I have nc-ver
forgotten It.
Thanks to the good Jacob Rtls sll thene
