Align the Civilized World Against Bolsheviki Rule Washington, Sept. 21.-In an effort to align the civilized world against the terrorism in Russia under Bolsheviki rule, the United States government has directed its ambassadors and ministers in neutral, as well as all allied countries, to ascertain whether the governments to which they are accredited will join in some immediate action to "impress upon the perpetrators of these crimes the aversion with which civilization regards their present wanton acts."

VON CAPELLE, AT THE MAJESTIC "My Soldier Girl," the brilliant mu-1 sical spectacle with a military atmosphere coining to tho Majestic on Monday night, offers an interesting story just at this time that tends to croate more than the ordinary interest in this miieical play, for since the first performance the word success does not convey lo tho public the Interest this musical play creates-the song hits are new and have a swinging lingeriug melody in at lenst six of them that are fast becoming popular. Tho book Is filled with clever wholesome comedy, with funny situations, never forgetting the interesting story that wends Its way through the throo acts with a military flavor. Tho three gorgeous settings offer plenslng scenic environment's-ho cleverly has tho artist blended Ihe colors that the result pleases the eye and new and novel is ihe effect. Tho flash and blending of shades in the gorgeous costiinios puts the finishing touch to tho artistic groupings � of tho latest designs from the Modiste studios. The story Is laid in three acta und four scenes, opening with a performance or final dress rehearsal of a musical extravaganza on tho Roof Garden of the New York Theatre, changing to a southern home near the government aviation field, Miami, Fla., introducing a. grand feie in the evening and the last act is a novelty in itsolf. The curtain rises on a tableaux roproHanting a picture-after tlio battle-"Somewhoro in France."
