New Film Concern to
'' Show Expensive Feature
' Omaha- is to be the central office
of'a new film concern which has been
formed for the distribution of the
1 highest class of motion pictures in
the middle west, The name of the
new concern is the rontenelle fea
ture Film company. Interested in the,
Fontenelle Feature Film company are
Max Wiptroube, one of Omaha's best
known business men, and Paul Le
Marquand Jf the Empress theater.
The first big feature to be intro-
," duced under the Fontenelle banner
. is the much-heralded "War's Women,"
which has just completed an engage
ment at the Garrick theater, Minneap
olis. The phto-spectacle deals with
the wrongs women endure as an ac
companiment to warfare between
men. Frank Keenan, the Triangle
actor in the role of the Emir presents
a picturesque figure of barbarian sav
agery. Enid Markey does effective
acting as the martyr heroine and
Lnaries trench as her father. These
three stand out in the group of play-
era taxing leaaing roiei in tne drama,
in which severak hundred Deoole are
employed. Photographically the pic
ture is aumiraoie. i ne scenery Is
picturesque, the costuming and ar
chitecture giving a distinctly foreign
atmosphere, although the staging was
done in America.
The management of the Fontenelle
Feature Film company has made ar
rangements to rent outright the Hipp
theater on Harney street for seven
days, starting Sunday, November-?.
The Hipp will be decorated through
out for the occasion and there this
feature will be shown under the best

MEETING AT ROME
Kennedy, Baker and Sutton
Bring Forth Enthusiastic Re
sponse With Speeches.
SIGHTS OF VICTORY SEEN
John L. Kennedy, republican candi
date for United States senator; Ben
S. Baker, candidate for congress in
the Second district, and Judge A. L,
Sutton, candidate for governor, spoke
Monday at the Rome hotel to an
enthusiastic meeting of republican
boosters, numbering nearly 300. Pre
dictions of a republican victory were
freely made by the men, who have
been campaigning in Nebraska, and
have had the best possible opportunity
of securing at first hand a view of the
feeling that exists among the voters
of the Cornhusker state. An organi
zation for work on election day was
Jesse P. Palmer, presided and in
troduced each speaker in language
which brought expressions of ap
proval from the audience.
Long-continued applause greeted
Mr. Kennedy, who spoke for thirty
minutes, and his speech was inter
rupted repeatedly by applause that
sounded the affection of the audience
"We are in the most momentous
campaign since the days of Lincoln,"
said Mr. Kennedy. "At this time, we
must put men in office who will be
patriotic first and partisan afterward.
After America and the rest of the
world return to the pursuits of peace
we will have the most difficulttasks
that have ever confronted a people.
This nation must lead in the future,
and it must have at its head a man
who stands for fearless and courage
ous leadership. America must stand
for free government, not only at home,
but throughout the entire civilized
world. In free government is the
panacea of the warlike times, without
it there can be no lasting peace."
Mr. Kennedy paid Judge Sutton a
Baker Lauds Ticket,
Ben S. Baker did not speak at great
length because he was billed for an
other speech last night. He said in
part: "I, for one, want to see a big
vote rolled up for John L. Kennedy
.for United States senator, first be
cause he is a man well titted for
the place and one who will be loyal
to the trust, and next to beat Sena
tor Hitchcock, who runs a news
paper which does nothing much but
say nice things about Senator Hitch
cock. And, boys, I want to see Judge
Sutton win, by all means."
Judge Sutton's address was a pre
diction of victory for the republican
party in Nebraska.
1 predict that Uiarles t. Hughes
will come out of the big Sixth dis
trict with 10,000 votes to the good."
He said that Ben S. Baker should
be elected and Lobeck defeated for
congress, because the only thing that
Lobeck stands for is himself, for on
his card he admits that he, Lobeck,
is all right . .

Americans Have Sex
On the Brain, Says
John Cowper Powys
"You've got 'sex' on the brain,"
John Cowper Powys, English lecturer
and writer told his fashionable audi
ence at the Brandeis theater event,
sponsored by the Vassar club, Mon
day afternoon. "You ire immersed
in sex problems, Brieux's plays and
white slave movies like 'Where Are
My Children.' My European mind is
disgusted with the over-emphasis oi
sex in America," said he. "Produced
plays can't uplift morals. Read plays
to get the best in them."
This came directly on the heels of
an elaborate, compliment paid Ameri
can people by Dr. Powys for their one
great quality modesty. "Americans
have a whimsical bravado often mis
taken for pride and conceit and your
writers are prone to frivolty and
levity, but I interpret it as a modesty
and humility of intellect which leads
in the end to the garden of truth."
The spirit which questions every
thing, which laughs at everything, and
yet despairs this is the modern spirit,
according to Dr. Powys, who lectured
on "The Spirit of Modern English Lit
erature." He compared the pompous
complacence and the gravity of the
mid-Victorian writers with the sin
cerity, but weakness of modern writ
ers. But it is the weakness out of
which comes strength, he pointed out.
"It is made up of paradoxes, but
that is life. The writers are hurt with
the modern malady of introspection,"
Dr. Veach Talks On
Rev. Dr. Robert Wells Veach of
Philadelphia, secretary of religious
education, addressed the Presbyterian
ministers of eastern Nebraska and
western Iowa at the Young Men's
Christian association Monday morn
ing, on "The Progress of Education."
"Seciilar education grows out of
religious education," he said. ' "The
leading secular educators are insist
ing that the churches make their re
ligious education in the Sunday
schools and other institutions more
Rev. R, H. Houseman of Omaha,
educational superintendent of the
Presbyterian Synod of Nebraska made
a few remarks also.
This meeting was followed by a
luncheon at the "Y." at which a num
ber of laymen joined the ministers.
Dr. Veach delivered a short address
here, emphasizing the importance of
the superintendent's office in the Sun
day school. This, he -pointed out;, is
the center and foundation of the
church's educational work and the
office must be filled by men of large
At 4 o'clock a meeting was held, at
which was outlined the working of the

answered quickly. "However, I wish
