"THE GREAT CLOTHIERS OF THE GREAT WEST" Considerable comment was raised in this city when it was first announced that the management of the Majestic Theatre would bring the latest dramatic effort on the vital topic of Birth Control to this city, in the form of the play "Her Unborn Child." Part of the criticism was for, and part against, the subject in question. The actual trial of the merits of tho question was given at the Majestic last night when the play'"Her Unborn Child" was presented to an audience representative of the whole city and district. That the play made a deep and lasting impression upon the minds and sensibilities of the' audience was easily apparent. First, let it be said, with all due respect to the play, there Is not the least veBtige of anything Vicious or immodest in the story. A prude might be inclined to say it is too blunt, too bold, but those who are ready to appreciate an open, honest discussion of ono of tho most important topics which govern our lives in this hgi, will readily agree-and did agrcs iast night-that just BUch plays are badly needed in the theatre today. "Her Unborn Child" niakes a strong appeal to the deeper appreciation of the wonderful virtue --mother love-to the Banctlty of the marriage vow, to the preservation of the purity of life and to the upholding at any cost of the honor of the young women and girls in this generation. A complete review of the story of the play is naturally withheld, considering the fact that it Is to bo presented again tonight nnd twice on Wednesday, and the telling of the story might spoil the anticipated pleasure of tho3e who Intend seeing the play at the Majestic while the opportunity Is still here. By all means go and boo the play. You will leave the theatre a wlsor and better man or woman-filled with the joy of living. The company who present the play are superb. Space will not permit individual mention, but a word of praise must be given Mrs. Mina Gleaoon, who as "Mtb. Kennedy" Is a real "mother." One could Just love her as a mother, and after seeing the play last night, "mother is a bigger word than ever. The scenic production is very good. All In all, "Her Unborn Child" Is one of the very best attractions ever seen in Lethbridge. > done which will prevent "the dissolution of parliament on Out. 7, and an appeal to the people by tho llorden government." Ho declared that so far as he was concerned there was no truth In the rumor that he had been asked to become a fusion candidate in a Manitoba cofe stituency. When asked if he thougm thcro was going to be a national government the former minister remarked "it looks pretty much like It, doesn't It?" Questioned as to whether he was likely to run in South Winnipeg, Hon. Mr. Rogers had nothing to say.-- r We are now located In our NEW STORE At 407 Fifth Strsst South OPP03ITE ORPHEUM THEATRE And showing a wide assortment of this season's up-to-date styles In - MILLINERY - THE LETHBRIDGE MILLINERY CO.
