THE endeavors of a painfully
rich family to appear aristo
cratic iri "Fools and Their
Money" amuses the charming Me
tro star, Emmy Wehlen, who as a
fun-loving girl poses in the story as
a social secretary.
"Their idea of exclusiveness is so
much like a young woman I over
heard at the next table in a restau
rant," said Miss Wehlen with a
smile. "The escort was fingering a
little notebook and when he started
to write in it she objected.
"'There's too many names on
your list," she said; 'please don't put
mine there.' Then she laid her hand
on his arm.
"'I want to he different,' she
whispered impulsively. 'Get a new

With not one tame or uninterest
ing moment in the latest Geraldine
Farrar release, "The Stronger Vow,"
coining to the Strand theater today
to Saturday, the world-renowned
star is given opportunities to por
tray all the emotions that can engulf
a beautiful girl in a whirlpool of
tragedy, intrigue and love. Flirta
tious and arch is the diva when, as
Dolores de Cordova, she meets her
future lover at a carnival, vindictive
and cruel when she swears to kill
the man who killed her brother,
yielding and femininely sweet and
lovely when she learns that her love
is reciprocated. Miss Farrar's big
moment comes when the inescapa
ble truth that the man she has
sworn to kill is the man she has
In "Mary Regan," the screen ver
sion of LeRoy Scott's great novel,
in which Anita Stewart will be
seen at the Rialto, Miss Stewart
plays a convict's daughter whose
hand is sought by a rich man's son
and by a detective. Its climax is
the most thrilling raid upon a big
cabaret ever put on screen or stage,
incidentally bringing the answer to
the heroine's love question.
Fannie Ward in "The Cry of the
Weak" will be the attraction at the
Muse today and tomorrow. Miss
Ward has perfect support in Frank
Elliott, who plays most convincingly
the role of District Attorney Dex
ter; Walt Whitman, as Judge
Creighton, and Paul Willis as the
erring boy, Budd. This photoplay
brings out the theme that one-half
the crimes committed today are
really vengeance against the harsh
ness of society, and that many
criminals may be' reclaimed if given
the proper opportunity.
William Farnum will be the at
traction at the Sun theater begin

tioii of which Mr. Farnum has ap
peared with such marked success.
The scenic effects that frame the
intense dramatic action of this story
were photographed in picturesque
mountain fastnesses and on the desert.
The story of a patient, tender lit
tle woman's battle with the afflic
tion of deafness is told in "The Big
Little Person,' a Universal produc
tion which will be shown at the
Brandeis theater the last times to
day, continuous from 1 to 11, with
Mae Murray, formerly Broadway's
most popular dancer, in the leading
role. The story of "The Big Little
Person" was adapted from the book
by Rebecca Hooper Eastman, the
continuity being arranged by Bess
Nazimoya has capped the climax
of her brilliant career by her work
in "Toys of Fate," a Screen Classics
production, which will be shown at
the Empress for the last times to
day. "Toys of Fate" is the story of
a child of nature, brought into con
tact with the ways of civilization.
She suffers, rejoices and in the end
finds happiness and heart's desire.
The star is surrounded with a bril
liant cast of celebrated players in
this picture, including Charles Bry

rier, Nila Mac, and others.
Rupert Julian does more than
change his make-up when he
changes roles in "The Fire Fling
ers," his latest Universal Special At
traction, which is showing at the
Brandeis Theater, for three days
starting tomorrow. Repeatedly he
plays two parts in the same scene,
and it is not until he finally aban
dons one of them that the average
spectator realizes that one man has
played both. Julian's whole man
ner changes as he leaves the role
of a masterful, brutal, wealthy hus
band and assumes that of a repent
ant ex-convict, seeking only a
chance to "go straight."

Mexican Colony Attractive
to Lovers of Strong Drink
D. G. Wilson, Bloomfield, Neb.
business agent for a Mexican land
colonization project, was in Omaha
Tuesday, in the irtf.rests of this en
terprise. He explained that the pros
pective colonists will be anti pro
hibitionists who are opposed to what
they believe is a curtailment of their
personal liberties in this country.
The colony is a 500,000-acre nnch
i.i Coahuila, Mexico, between Eagle
Pass and Del Rio. It is propjstd to
open the colony July 12, and to es
tablish a new town to be known as
Braunfels. One hundred Texas
farmers are said to have been en
listed and 1,000 settlers are expected.
Mr. Wilson stated that he expects
thousands of Americans will be at
tracted to this colony.
One of the attractive features of
the colony, as represented by Mr.
Wilson, is the fact that the location
is not accessible by bandits, the
Burro mountains serving as a pro
tection against raids.
