A WONDERFUL characteriza
tion of Abraham Lincoln is
portrayed by Ralph Ince at
the Rialto theater, where "The Land
of Opportunity," a Selznick Ameri
canization picture, is being shown.
So faithful is the make-up and so
real does Mr. Ince make the charac
ter that it seems as though the great
emancipator himself was walking
through the scenes. It is a picture
of loyalty and shows that America
is the land of opportunity and that
possible that it will go still lower.i there is no room for bolshevism or

' "I. believe the action by the

the market at $3 a barrel less than
the prevailing price of patent flour
has done much to bring down the
price of patent flour," declared Mr.
Neal. "Since December 25 the con
sumer has been able to purchase
our flour at $13 a barrel."
C, I. Falm, general manager of
the Skinner company bakery in
Council Bluffs, said yesterday that if
the drop continues the price of, bread
will also be lowered. Even if pres

The action takes place during the
present time, in 1858 and 1823. It
shows Lincoln as a rail splitter and
as the young lawyer at the time
when he was campaigning against
Stephen Douglas, when he stopped
his political fight to save the life of
a boy whose mother had befriended
him when he needed friends.
A capable cast supports Mr. Ince,

Hair Often Ruined
'By Careless Washirig
Sun A woman's pluck and pride
are hard to maintain in the face of
almost certain evidence of her hus
band's unfaithfulness. Yet, in Tom
Moore's Goldwytj picture, "Lord and
Lady Algy," being shown at the
Sun theater Lady Algy comes to the
aid of her husband whew he needs
her most, and so saves him and an
other man's wife from the most em
barrassing moment of their lives.
The situation results from the flir
tation which Lord Algy s brother
had been carrying on with the wife
of a rich soap manufacturer. They
had been meeting in Lord Algy's
rooms, but the soap magnate learned
of he affair and immediately sus
pected Lord Algy. One evening the
husband followed, and broke into
the room where Algy and the other
man's wife were talking. He imme
diately concealed her in an adjoin
ing room and swore that no one
was there. Lady Algy then en
tered and saved the situation.
Strand Youth and high spirits
are the predominating notes in the
Thomas H. Ince production, "Mary's
AnHo" the film offering at the
Strand theater this week. Douglas
MacLean and Doris May, who co
starred in "Twenty-Three and i
Half Hours' Leave," are the fea
tured players. The picture is an
adaptation of May Tully's hilarious
play of the same name. Lloyd
Ingraham directed the picture, and,
besides Mr. MacLean and Miss May,
the cast includes Victor Potel. Neal
Rums. Tames Gordon, Lizette
Thorne and Ida Lewis.
Moon The power of- music over
our subconscious natures is humor
nuslv set forth in Madge Kennedy's
Goldwvn comedy, "Strictly Confi
dential," which is offered movie fans
at the Sun theater during the bal
ance of the week. Lady Bantock's
uncle, the oW butler on her hus
band's estate, deems it; his duty to
ban all frivolitv at the castle. But
when his niece comes there to live,
and brings her fiddle, all the ser
vants under his control show signs
of weakening in their ' devotion to
tne cause of Puritanism. Even the
old butler unknowingly reveals his
real nature. At last his wife arouses
him with the news of the "high
jinks" going on, and the old butler's
training temporarily overcomes his
love of music.
Nearly 1.000 Boy Scouts of Great
er Omaha will tie 40,000 small twine
l.nots on people they meet today, as
reminders that this is "Good Turn
week,' 'and that those on whom
knots are tied are especially obli
gated to do eood turns.
j " The scouts have adopted the
square knot for this occasion, this
form of knot being symbolic because
lot its security. The boys will tie
'knots on people in the downtown

home communities during the day.
It is to be a big drive to enlist Oma

"Chief Scout" Coming.
Saturday has been designated as
"West day," on account of the visit
of James F. West, .chief executive of
the Boy Scouts of America. Mr.

O people still care for real
comic opera the old-fashioned
kind in which noofl music and
equally good humor are combined?
You could have had your answer
at the Brandeis last night, where the
; biggest audience for weeks' assem
i bled to enjoy "Robin Hood." And
the word is used advisedly, for they
did enjoy it. The applause that fol
lowed each number, and the laughter
at the sheriff's quips and his various
predicaments, were as genuine as the
applause .and laughter that rang
through Boyd's 30 years ago when
the opera was new. Henry Clay
Bamabee, Jessie Bartlett Davis,
Tom Karl and others of that glor
ious company are no longer with
us, but the opulent glories of the De
Koven music and the Smith libretto
live and gather in richness as ' the.
years go on.
No single act in any operatic work
easily recalled contains more of rich
delight than does the second act of
"Robin Hood," More pretentious
arias have beei written and sung
than that of 'Maid Marian; sere
nades as melodious, perhaps, as tha
KODin sings under tne window ot
the fickle Arinabelle; choruses more
robust than that in which Scarlet
Will relates the episode of the tailor
and the crow; rounds as merry as
the one Friar Tuck leads, but few
as gleeful; and so on through the
list of treasures, but no single act
contains so .much of music, of
unctuous fun, and of the ballad qual
ity that gives to music its life. While
the human voice is capable of pro
ducing that "concord of sweet
sounds," the ear will be ravished
by "Oh, Promise Me," and long,
long alter the last moonshiner has
mended his way, the last "blind pig"
has been run down and extermi
nated, even unto generations who
know of the drink by tradition only
and not by substance, breath that
never bore alcoholic taint will quaver
with the strains of "Brown October
Ale," because of its melody.
But the first act has its beauties
as well, and the third gives us the
great "Armorer's Song." and "Saint
Swithin's Chimes." unequalled in
English opera. What wonder that
"Robin Hood" brings out those who
The company now singing at the

vocally, but it has the tallest chorus

Guy of Gisborne ever presented on
the stage. Miss Elsie Tedie, who
looks a Lady Marian whose favor
would inspire even a duller gallant
than the young Earl of Huntington,
supplements that beautiful person
and graceful carriage with .a voice
of unusual purity, range, volume and
flexibility. Her tones are produced
without apparent effort, her enuncia
tion is clear, and her moments on
the stage are pleasant to all who
listen. Lorna Dooue Jackson is the
Alan-a-Dale, and takes care of the
songs set down for the part very
well. She is especially good in "Oh,
Promise Me," which she sung with
excellent taste lasj night. Albert
Darr's lyric tenor blends perfectly
with Miss Tedic's, and their duos
are charming in consequence, while
he gave , his troubadour -song witn
feeling ami effect. The quartet here,
composed of .Marian, Robin, AIan--Dale
and Scarlet Will is one of the
most beautiful things in the whole
opera. William "Degan, who sings
the bass part, has a voice of great
purity as well as strength, and of
such range as fully meets the re
quirements of the exacting score.
Harry Longstreet, in the role of Lit
tle John, revels in its opportunities,
and aroused great enthusiasm with
his "Brown October Ale," the re
