A. VCMOCK ON VAVHV IN fHt
Last night (Wednesday) the
Praetorians numbering about 40
gathered at the home of Mr. and j
Mrs. C. W. Kuwitzy for a lawn |
social. The evening was spent in j
telling jokes and playing games. J
At 10 o'clock refreshments consist-
ing of ice cream and cake were j
Mrs. J. A. Vandever and daugh-
ter, Miss Mabel, left on Thursday
for Eureka Springs, where they
will sfiend the remainder of the
Introduction ot the Figure of
Christ in ' Civilization" Brings
Up the Qi estion as to
Whether o' Not Oftcnse
Is Taken When the
Bible Is Visualized.
Mrs. J. J. Baker left on Thurs-
day for St. Louis on a two weeks'
visit wtih Miss Emma Craft, with
whom she attended St. Joseph's
Academy in Guthrie some years
Hoyle Hurrage, who is in the
navy and made numerous voyages
overseas during the late "unpleas-
antness," is home oti a furlough,
visiting his parents, Mr. and Mrs
G. W. Burrage, of RouVfe 6. He
will return to New York in a few
days and be discharged.
The reported intention of Henry
Ford to raise the wages of his em-
ployes to $7 per day creates no in-
tense excitement in labor circles.
Most workmen are getting that
amount or thereabouts, no matter
what branch of skilled labor th^y
are engaged in.
The recent fatal automobile ac-
cidents, reports of which come
from ajl parts Of the country,
would indicate there is danger in
other ways than flying through the
air. One would just as soon get
smashed up in an airplane as any
"Civilization," Thomas H. Ince's
much discussed cinema spectacle,
which is now entering the fourth
week of its remarkable run at the
Vniversity Theatre has such an
extraordinary theme that it has
paused more discussion than any
picture or play produced in many
seasons. Although it deals primar-
ily with war and the terrible con-
ditions resulting therefrom, Mr.
Ince's film drama represents Christ
returning to earth to view with
■unspeakable anguish the carnage
treated by men whom he instruct-
ed to "love one another."
The opening scenes of "Civili-
sation" represent a mighty mon-
arch declaring war on a neighbor-
ing state for the sole purpose of
territorial aggrandizement. In spite
(of the fact that this country is pre-
pared, in a material way, for all
eventualities, he docs not reckon
with the soul of his enemy. His
.people are defeated, his country
invaded. Death and destruction
reach the very doors of his pal-
ace. But his hope, and that of the
entire nation, is pinned on the in-
vention of a wonderful submarine
which promises to revolutionize
naval warfare. The submarne sets
forth to sink an unarmed merchant
vessel, filled with innocent men,
women and chldren (the Lusitania
tragedy is reproduced in amazing
detail here). The vessel is sunk,
but an accident overtakes the sub-
marine also. It disappears beneath
the waters and the body of the
great inventor, who has gone on
the trip, is picked up, lifeless, on
the surface of the water.
The second act of "Civilization"
represents the soul of the submar-
ine inventor rising to, the Life
Beyond, while the doctors battle
vainly over the empty shell of his
body. In regions far removed from
earth he meets a Wonderful Man,
in whose face, as I nee puts it,
"is mirrored the sorrows of the
universe." This man shows him
what he has done. He weeps bitter
tears, but it is too late. Thousands
of men, women and children have
been massacred through no fault
of their own. It is then that Christ
(The Man) offers to return to
earth, using the body of the in-
ventor as a disguise to preach the
gospel of peace among men. The
doctors see signs of life in the
^shell over which they have been
^working, but they little know
what spirit has returned into the
Torm which lies before them.
The inventor recovers. To the
amazement of the King, however,
he is no longer the fiery, tem-
poramental genius who evolved
the underea instrument of death.

All this would be treading on
dangerous grounds were it not for
the delicacy and tact the producer
of "Civilization," Thomas H. Ince,
Jias shown. The same idea has been
carried out in a number of highly
successful plays—notably, Charles
Rann Kennedy's "Servant in the
House," Jerome K. Jerome's
"Passing of the 3rd Floor Back"
and David Belasco's "Return of
Peter Grimm." The camera being
far more comprehensive in its
scope than the stage, some truly
beautiful and striking symbolic ef-
fects have been secured by Mr.
Ince—especially the scenes which
show the soul of the inventor leav-
ing his earthly body and rising to
the World Beyond. Death is a
tning every man and woman must
'"ace, no matter how much they
dislike thinking of it, and it is only
natural that the vital question of
another life should fnd expresson
in the theater.
GET IN BAD
Fisher Muldrow went to Colo-
rado Springs on Thursday where
he will spend the summer with
friends on a ranch.
Officials of the international
revenue office have sent advices
to Norman that where ice cream,
cokes or other fountain products
are sold for five cents, the follow-
ing sign must be displayed in ac-
cordance with the law: "Ice cHeam
cones, 5 cents; war tax, l cent."
So far as we are to ascertain, it
was needless to send the infor-
mation here, for none of the deal-
ers are offering such propositions
as a five ceil article to their thristy
trade. It is said, however, that
you can obtain from a wagon for

What's the use of going to Colo-
rado if you can have the kind of
weather' we've been having in Ok-
lahoma the last few days? Certain-
!y Colorado has nothing on us in
the way of comfortable weather.
If it would only rain and Slave the
corn there would be nothing left
for us to desire.
