s. "Baree, Son of Kazan," the Vita-
graph Blue Ribbon Feature which will
be the attraction at tho Ilo Ilo Theatre tonight. Is announced by Vita-
graph to be one of the most remarkable pictures ever released by that
company. A stirring, swift moving
drama of the big woods, lakes nud rivers of the Northwest, especial Interest
centres on Baree, half wolf and half
dog, protege, protector and, Dually,
avenger, of Nepeese.
Five Malamute dogs, ranging In age
from a puppy to a full grown husky,
were used ln the picture to impersonate Baree, and the astonishing Intelligence each displays throughout
the picture reflects the greatest credit
on David Smith .who directed the
picture, an don Nell Shipman, who
made the dogs her constant companions, won their affection and then
their obedience.
Not less remarkable and beautiful
in the extreme, are the snow scenes.
All exteriors were taken In dead of
winter in the snow-bound passes
north of Truckee, California.
"TARZAN OF THE APES," A STOHY
OF AFRICAN ADVENTURE
Darwin was rigflt, all right. But
he never graded the degrees of descent. Edgar Rice Burroughs mado
some attempt at grading in his "Tarzan of the Apes," which will he shown
at the lol Ilo Theatre on Tuesday,
June 10th. He runs the gamut this
way—drunben sailors, brutal ships
officers slave trading and finally aristocrats. Tlie apes really rank highest.
Even the boy brought up by thc apes
ranks head and shoulders above bis
uristocrat relative. There are no class
lines, no national lines, no mutual exploitation among our ancestors.
"Tarzan.of the Apes" ls bully adventure. Wild beasts roam through the
scenes; a kindly elephant takes the
wild man upon his back; in short,mix
Stevinson's "Treasure Island" with
Captain Bakers' African stories and
the happy combination is struck. Thc
joy of the film lies ln Its kindly wild
life rather than Its civilized brutality.
And ln putting Burrough's story into
the film the National Film Corporation has shown good sense of showmanship. "Tarzan" Is better than most
films which have been concocted for
the screen, and credit must be given
Scott Sidney, who staged it, and Isldor
Bernstein, who edited it. Natural
beauties, Imagination and clean, free
spirit, make the film a delight.
This is the fighting plane of Captain Edward Rlcltenbacker, American
"Ace of Aces." Ench Iron Cross represents a German plane brought
to earth.

no attractions, though for some time

TEN COMMANDMENTS
The Pacific Coast Mechanic suggests thai the following should be
nailed to the door of every union hall
iu Canada:
I. Thou shalt hnve no other Gods
before me, America, chastened and
tun Hied, purged from the false God of
Mullets for destruction, to Ballots for
Construe tion.
II. Thou shalt not make unto thee
a'ty graven linage, like a walking
delegate, assuming ability to run the
employer's business, but If thou must
have an Image of that sort, he should
be carved out of the group who is paid
hy the employer and knows his sins of
commission and omission; nor any
likeness of things in Heaven above,
that is, stop thinking all service ranks
llie same with either God or man,
stop thinking your men should all
have equal pay for unequal work; nor
nny likeness of anything that is in
the earth beneath, that is, stop assuming that you can legislate yourself
yourself into the klngdonf of efficiency or money by the God of Paternalism, or socialism, or communism; nor
the waters under the earth, that is,
stop swimming around, you poor
tishes, with the sharks of l.W.W.-lsm,
the flounders of social unrest, and the
whales of lies of your lcadershhip
preaching Unit you are all riglit and
tlie other fellow all wrong, with the
blubber that cometll therefrom; such
as strikes, boycotts, sabotage, syndicalism, inefficiency:
Thou shalt not bow down thyself to
them, nor serve them, for I, America,
am a Jealous God, visiting the iniquity
produced by these false Gods of your
movement upon the third and fourth
generation, aud showing mercy only
upon those who love me and keep my
commandments.
III. Thou shall honor thy futner
and mother, liberty and equality of
opportunity and condition for the
oilier fellow as well as thyself, ln a
closed or open shop, that thy days
may he long upon the land which the
Lord thy God, America, gave thee,
IV. Remember tlie Sabbath day to
keep 1' holy, and every other day.
Six days shalt thou labor and do all
thy work, rather than thy employer.
V. Thou shalt not take tlie name
of the Lord, thy God. America, in vain,
by foul, profane or abusive language,
insulting neither her flag, her history,
or her institutions, for the Lord, thy
America, will not hold him guiltless
that taketh her name in vain.
VI. Thou shalt not steal thine own
time or that of thy employer, nor keep
from thy fellow man the right to work
when and where he pleases if he believes thee is stealing or thy employer
so believes, even though thee dost not
agree with thc adversary.
VII. Thou shalt not commit adultery by cohabitating thy Americanism,
100 percent, pure, in the leadership of
thy movement, with the impure Bolshevik, the foreigner who is un-Amerl-
canized, who wants to smash our government by hate rather than redeem
it by love.
VIII. Thou shalt not kill individual
initiative by a weak paternalism, a
menacing socialism, a maudlin communism or legislative reform that
only emphasizes your wrongs and min
imizes the other fellow's rights.
IX. Thou stlnlt not bear false witness against thy neighbor, thy employer, by vilifying him because he
may be rich or powerful, unless thou
art satisfied beyond .a reasonable
doubt that he Is worthy ot thy slander
and then give him hell.
X. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife nor his man servant, nor
his maid servant, nor his ox, nor his
ass, nor anything that Is thy neighbor's, but if thou must covet thy neigh
hor, covet thc capacity and character
whereby he has expressed himself
witli material blessings, and thaak
God that thou art not as he, if he has
obtained it by power of legislation or
privilege.
For thou doth only covet and want
to divide the dollar earned by thy
neighbor, with thyself, being content
to keep thy own dollars to thyself
without the sin of covctousness.
May I add a new commandment, the
eleventh commandment, if you please,
the greatest of them all, flashed across
a darkened world by the Master Mind
to transform us by its power and
transfuse us by its light. "A new
commandment I give unto you that ye
love one another."
NEED FOR THRIFT YET
The need for personal and community thrift is as great now as in the
the black days of 1918, when it was
realized that the most stringent self-
denial was requisite to enable us to
meet the demands of the government
for more and yet more money with*
which to carry on the war. The great
dread which hung over all a year ago
has happily been removed, but we
still have a duty to perform, and it is
essential that lt should be foced. It ls
necessary to carry on public works
that will aid production, such as roads
and railways, on a considerable scale,
in order to provide employment for
the workers. Wc have also a heavy
burden of interest imposed on us by
tiie war, and wc have great obligations to those who were maimed as
to the dependents of those who laid
down their lives for our security.
These obligations can be met only by
a continuance of self-denial on hte
part of everyone ln the Dominion.   *  Sflllll

REMEMBER THE OTHERS!
There's an obligation that goes with party-line
telephone service—an obligation shared by all persons
on the line an obligation which each owes to the others.
Inordinarily long, conversations frequently cause
annoyance and even grave distress. Some other
person on the line may be trying to call a doctor or
make some similarly urgent call. Perhaps, too, there's
a most important message, incoming, for someone on
the line—perhaps even for the person who is "holding
things up."
Think it over! The obligation is one that will
appeal to all who give consideration to.it.

and are causing serious delay ln the
readjustment ot industry. The govern
ment has appointed a commission,
composed ot seven men representing
both labour and capital, which Is now
taking evidence in all parts of the
country and will report to the government upon the possibility ot the Joint
control and operation ot certain industries by capital and labour. It
would be reasonable for both classes
to await their findings before further
disruption.
During the month of March 3,209
persons, with (1,074,146 In cash, and
effects to the value of (573,326, entered Western Canada. Ot these 1,641
were farmers or farm laborers and
1,318 were women and children, most
of whom would probably be the depen
dents of farmers.
Of the returned soldiers who have
applied for the benefits ot the Soldier
Settlement Act In the four western
provinces, 4,225 have been approved
as qualified to engage in farming at
once . A large number of applicants
were found to have had Insufficient
agricultural experience to warrant
their being placed on the land immediately, and these will spend one
year with successful farmers.
