The allies sfill have a slight superiority in men and guns on the western front but there is a possibility that the appearance of the Austrians there would change this." More troops might be brought from the Russian front, continued the chancellor, that they would be of inferior quality. "This we know," he went on. "that taking into account the whole allied front from the channel to the Adriatic, including the Italian front, the number of men must remain in our favor."

"Miss Xeilson-Terry has been conspicuously associated with Shakespearian characters, and her departure from that line of work to enter the field of modern comedy is a matter of interest. Her tremendous success as "Trilby" in the famous play by that name, is some indication of. what, may be expected of this charming young star in a comedy part, which gives full scope to her versatility.
