AT THE MAJESTIC ^ THE VOLUNTEER A hearty welcome must be given the fifty veterans who will appear at the JMajostle Theatre tonight in their original play "The Volunteer." The play was produced on Saturday ^t the Grand Theatre in Calgary to two of the biggest audiences on record in the Calgary playhouse. It depicts with life like realism the various episodes in the life of ihe Canadian soldier-or, as tli'i program says, "from recruiting slatiou. to front line trench " ' � Tho cdmpauy wl\o number fifty, will appear here tonight and Tuesday niglit, and are carrying a carload of scenic effects, tons ot war.,tlme paraphernalia, and shpuld raise, tho Ijeth-bridgo audioncea to the pitcli of e;i-Ihuslasni. ^ All scats may he reserved in advance at the bo.x oftlce. "THE WOLF" Playgoers In L,ethbrldgo will short ;y have the opportunity of witnessing that thrilling, human drama of lite in the wild northwest, "Tlic Wolf." when it comes to tho .Majestic theatre on Wednesday night,this week. Voi"y seldom does the ("anadiaii theatre patron find shown upon tho stage a picture of lite in his own countr.v. It Is for this reason that "The Wolf" has 11 special appeal to Canadian men and wo.^u>n. It is a play that will tlirill the heart of the Canadian boy or girl, and' inspire tliem with courage in emulation of the brave men >"onto, - when a machine la which ^� was b�liig Instriictfed collided with �nothfcr ninchlrie Immediately pver tho -airdrome.

I make the statement without fear of contradiction, that "Out There" is the greatest contribution to the dramatic stage! in recent years. Those who \yere fortunate enough to witness the play on Saturday last will agree with me in this. It has been my pleasure to offer Lethbridge theatre goers many splendid attractions in the past, but none can possibly make such a universal appeal to ^11 that is good and true in human nature as will ."put There." It has been necessary for us to deposit a substantial guarantee withjhe management of "Out There" for the return engagement, but we have done so fuUy convinced that the people of Letftbridge will welcome the opportunity to witness the play again. Those who saw "Out There" on Saturday night will, want to see it again, and those who were foolish enough to miss it, will now have one last opportunity in which to see the greatest play of the century, when it returns to the Majestic n^xt Monday night. Phone orders for seats will receive attention. Mail orders for seats will be attended to when accompanied by stamped addressed envelope for reply,^and marked cheque or money order to cover cost of seats. Yours respectfully, > LENS.
