July -In what is considered in allied rirrles here an attempt to sweeten ilie liitler pill of the German people, tlie llerlin government is circulatinf-, a iiampblet dealing with the "ahorl'iiing of tho German front," written liy a former Uer-man general staff ollicer. According to a lierlin dispatch received here the ollicer said in part: "Tho only jiriiiciplo to follow In all mcasurea is lo inlllct the heaviest jjossible losses iia tho enemy and keep our own as low as possible. If this result is acliievoil we shall approach even nearer the final aim of our operations. A favorable tactilal basis must be created. 'However, this is being attained liy tlie present shortening of our front, it will cause our opponents to loiitinue his attack by the enii)Ioymenl of fresh forces, because only thus can he extract success from the ground in this sector whlcli he has occupied without fighting. If he did not do this it would be an open admission of the failure of his offensive." Of nnqueslioned interest to local playgoers is the announcement that D. W. Griffith's new spectacle "Intolerance. " which ran over six months In New York, Is coiuiiig to the Majestic on Friday and Saturday nights and Saturday matinee this week. "Intolerance"' tolls the story of love's struggla throughout tho ages by means of four contrasting narratives, the scenes of which are laid In Ancient Rabylon, Judea when Christ was on earth. Mediaeval Paris and a modern American city. The production, which is said to be the moat magnificent one of all time, cost over two million dollars. It was ; three years In the making and 12ri,00li: people took part In It. Judging from its long and highly successful engage-i inents In Chicago. Philadelphia, Pittsburg, San l'''rancisco and ],o;i Angeles, its popularity will more than rival that of "The Birth of a Nation." Seats are now selling.
