URGED TO AID IN
Community Centers Will Hold
Programs to Promote Sav
Men to Speak. .
Preliminary plans to be sub
mitted to employers of Omaha for
the purpose of aiding employes to
save, were discussed by a group of
business men at the Chamber of
Commerce last night. The meeting,
which was one of several held in
preparation for Thrift Week, be
ginning Saturday, was called by D.
C Buell and J. M. Gillan, of the
Mr. Buell said a large majority of
employers in eastern cities were tak
ing active steps to assist employes
in the art of saving. One concern
is depositing the salaries of its em
ployes in the employes' bank, in
stead of paying the employ by check
or cash, he said. Many concerns
require their employes to save a spe
cified amount and keep this amount
intact, he declared.
A small per cent of the employers
in Omaha has taken any action in
encouraging thrift among employes,
Mr. Buell said. Thursday of next
week will be set aside as a day for
employers to formulate plans for
encouraging the saving among em
ployes, it was decided.
Mr. Gillan emphasized the fact
that the encouragement of thrift did
not mean that people were to stop
, purchasing merchandise or to do
t without necessities or comforts.
Thrift week is merely set aside to
' aid in discouraging reckless spend
ing, he said.
Talks on the subject of thrift will
be delivered at two community cen
ters tonight jR. A. Kirkpatrick will
be the speaker at Monmouth park
and Robert M. Switzler wifl speak
at Lincoln center. Other thrift talks
will be made next week.
Commissioner Thomas B. Fal
coner will speak at Edward Rose
water center. At Benson, the speak
er will be Maurice E. Jacobs, who
will tell the mysteries of the mod
:rn metropolitan newspaper plant.
Dr. Solon R. Towne, president of
the Nebraska Audubon society, will
deliver a stereopticon lecture on
birds of Nebraska at Lincoln center.

Struggles of Russians
Related by Lecturer
' M. J. Olgin, head of the New York
School of Social Research, gave an
interesting lecture before members
of the Fine Arts society yesterday
afternoon at the Hotel Fontenelle.
; Mr. Olgin, a Russian by birth,
took as his subject "The Spirit of
Russian Literature," and gave a
complete resume of the struggle of
Russian literary men from the 19th
century until the present time.
. He told of the struggles of the
people against not only the nobility
of their own land, but against the
many bordering states, which were
always carrying on war, and ended
his lecture by saying that not until
the present soviet government,
which represents the working peo
ple of the country, and the literarv
men of Russia, get together and
work for one cause will there ever be
any form of government or litera
ture in Russia.

characters on which farce comedy
writers have depended for so many
generations, but arranges them in
a different order. In this play the
unfaithful husband is not led into
his indiscretions because of any pre
dilections for wandering after
strange women, but because his
wife is obsessed with the strange
notion that he is a devil among the
ladies, and it is up to him to live
up to his reputation. A friend more
or less sophisticated and disinter
ested tries to help him out and
arranges with a clever young
woman who , is also a newspaper
reporter to stage a party with the
harmless young man at a summer
resort hotel. The party comes off,
but with results entirely different
from those planned by the plotters.

"We have arrived at an age when
truth and sincerity govern every
other attribute of the stage," says
George Arliss. who is at the Bran-
deis theater this week in his new
drama "Jacques Duval." "It is pos
sible that the best actors of all ages
have ever striven for this, but it is
the development of our theater
architecturally that has made it
possible for us to admit sincerity as ;
the first consideration. Today every
effort is made to get perfect settings,
perfect lighting and perfect accous
tics, and the audiences are marvels
of orderliness and patience. And so
we are enabled to adopt more nat
ural methods of expression and in
the same ratio audiences have be
come more critical of our work.
Therefore, with the intimate mod
erif theater, the note of sincerity is
growing more and more imperative."
The lumbermen in convention
gave a theater party to their ladies
Thursday afternoon over at the Or
pheum. Because the demand for
seats exceeds the supply and so as
to be in a position to accommodate
delegates to the lumbermen's and
the farmer's conventions, patrons
are requested to take up their seat
orders early. Evelyn Nesbit is prov-
!nff nnf of tVii hiV rlrawintr rarHa of
the season. Both the specially fea- j
turea acts, the Werner and Amoros
Trio and Princess Radiah are itts

in popular scoring.

debut as a star in Shakespeare.
When the time came for her debut,
the young girl could find no man

special matinee in New York. Her
success was immediate.
