asked in what business the mission

"The war is not over," Dr. Zwe

july. 1914, nor did it end Novem

when the kaiser stood at the grave
of one of. the early Ottoman rulers
-in 1898 and declared Germany was
the protector of the' 300.1)00,000
Moslems. Every American who has
lived in the near east for the last
"15 years has seen the colossal prop
aganda which Germany has carried

and Arabs, and has known that the
world war was coming.
"Germany meant to destroy
French and British colonies in Asia
and Africa, and to that end stirred
up the Holy war, but that failed

feet of iron pipe, intending to ex

OUISIANA" is one of
Frances Hodgson . Bur
nett's - earliest novels.
Vivian Martin will take the part of
Louisiana, a little South Carolina
mountain girl who wants to go for
an outing to a fashionable ' spring
hotel. She goes, but is miserable
because her home-made clothes
aren't right. Lawrence then appears
and takes Louisiana for a southern
belle. .The youtig folks fall in love.
But Louisiana is hurt at some re'
marks Lawrence makes' about the
mountain folk and she. flares up and
tells Lawrenoe who she is, and
sends him away. At last love and
common sense straighten things out.
"Poor Black Sheep," a short story
appearing in McClure's, is by
Harold MacGrath, author of "Arms
and the Woman," "The Puppet
Crown," "The Man on the Box,"
"The Goose Girl" and many other
popular novels. Wallace Reid takes
the part of a motherless young man
who has been brought up without
love. The boy, desperate, takes $11.-
000 from the safe, pays his debts
and skips to Japan. Here he goes
to the dogs, until he meets a charm
ing American girl and learns that
we are at war with Germany. He
determines Jo make good and fight
for his counutry.
"Johnny Get Your Gun," starring
Fred Stone, is taken from the verv
successful play which had a New
York run in 1917. It later went on
tour, visiting the principal cities of
the country. It was written bv Ed
mund Lawrence Burke. The scenario
of the picture was written by
Gardner Hunting, and the oicture
was directed by Donald Crisp. The
story relates the experiences of a
cowboy who becomes a motion pic
ture actor. The role is oarticularlv
adapted to Stone, giving him many
opportunities to do the stunts that
have made him famous.

original story by Margaret Turnbull,

MVS I C
Edith Louise Wagoner and
Louise Shadduck Zabriskie save
their third annual Sonata evening
Thursday evening at the Blackstone
hotel, when the pretty ball room
of this fashionable hostelry was
filled to the last row with aoprecia
five listeners. The charm of a so
nata recital for violin and piano is
tound in the - intimate dialogue be
tween the two instruments, which
are of equal importance in the in
terpretation of the music, in the
contrasts of the difference move
ments which were not chosen as a
group of separate pieces by the re
citalist, but were planned to follow
each other by the composer, and in
the choice of the sonatas them
selves. Mrs. Wagoner and Mrs. Zabriskie
made a happy selection when they
chose to present the Beethoven So
nata in C minor, Opus 30, No. 2,
the Tartini Sonata in G major and
the Grieg Sonata in G major, Opus
13, No. 2.
The Beethoven Sonata was typi
cal, full of Beethovenesque charac
teristics and delights from its ener
getic first movement, its broad Ada
gui Cantabile, the merry Scherzo,
and its more brilliant finale. An in
teresting contrast was the Tartini
Sonata which opens with a lovely
"Adagio Cantabile" in which both
violinist and pianist disclosed nice
tcnal work. A graceful allegro
leads to the Presto . Assai, an en
trancing movement which was ex
ceedingly well played.
In the Grieg Sonata the depth
of mood and variety of expression
of this famed composer were well
brought out. A short introductory
passage of desolation and gloom
precedes the Allegro Vivace with
its vivid .color and terse -dramatic
theme. Much charming dialogue is
to be found througout this sonata,
and these opportunities were not
neglected .by Mrs. Zabriskie and
Mrs. Wagoner. More beauty of
tone was evident in the allegretto
tranquillo and much brilliancy on
the part of the performers brought
the Allegro Animate to a successful
and dramatic climax, a fitting clos
ing number. The many individual
excellencies of "the work of Mrs.
Zabriskie and Mrs. Wagoner are
fo well known to Omaha audiences
that it is almost superfluous to
again mention them. Suffice it to
say that . both are musicians, and
the sonatas were brought to a high
ly intelligent, well balanced and. en
joyable hearing, in their . hands.
Good taste was also evident in that
the recital was, if anything, too
short rather than too long. The
close attention of ,the .listeners, the
hearty applause and the many flow
ers presented to the two artists
were deserved tributes. H. M. R

Preceding the young peoples' ral
ly some ministers and laymen of
the churches of the city enjoyed a
banquet served by the women of the
First Christian church, and listened
to strong addresses bv Dr. Zwemer
and Dr. Poteat.
Dr. Zwemer spoke on "The Soli
darity of the Race," pointing out the
essential unity of humanitv as a sci
entific and psychological fact, and
showed that this unity has been am
ply demonstrated in war and works
of mercy during the past few years.

.the speaker asserted that all the
difficulties at the peace table grew

Dr. Poteat in his address under
took to answer the question, "Who
Makes the Money?" He ridiculed
the idea that any man is entitled
to boast of that which he has
made," and asserted 'that God
through his natural laws, and that
