Br the A.o,iai-i irt-st.. PORT HURON, Mich.. Nov. 15. A "flag of tolerance" waves today from a pole in the yard of th First Methodist Episcopal Church. The flag was donated by the Port Huron Ku Klux Klan to the church the pastor of which, iy. Russell H Brady, has been a open foe of the klan. The mast from which the flag flies was presented to the church by Jacob"" S. Goldman, a Jew. The flag was raised by Archibald Wayner, Negro war veteran, and the dedicatory address was made by Mgr. Patrick R. Dunigan, k Catholic To 10,000 persons who gathered for the ceremony yesterday. Mgr. Dunigan said: This observance, with its diversity of elements assembled so obvi- vuiy tor me common good, means nothing if not the convincing burial or the bitterness of bigotry in this community." In spite of a warning Pastor Brady received last week that 400 ment would be present "to see' that the service was never carried ouT there was no sign of disorder. The entire Police Department. augmented by a. company of National Guardsmen under arms, was present. VELL VARIED BILL AT THE ORPHEUM Hungarian Violinist and Jack Norworth in a One-Act Farce Share. Honors. FROM the sublime to the ridiculous is no mere figure of speech this week at the Orpheum with Duel de Kerekjarto, Hungarian violin virtuoso, providing the one, and Jack Norworth and Dorothy Adelphi and Bert Hanlon and others supplying the rest, Norworth, amiable veteran of many stages, has a peculiarly titillating bit. a bedroom farce of a different kind virtually the same act which W. C. Fields and Edna Leedom gave with great effect in Ziegfeld's "Follies." The curtain rises on a man and his wife in bed. He wants to sleep, she wants to quarrel "and so far into the night." De Kerekjarto is one of the few really fine masters of the violin who can hold a popular audience without recourse to cheapness. His program in judiciously chosen for melody, and ranges from the flashy sweetness of "Song of the Nightingale" to the throbbing ecstasy of the "Hungarian Rhapsody." For eicore he plays an improvisation on the, theme of "Carry Me uacK to Old Virginia." Hanlon, a most engaging -lowr wanders in and out of the -hew as master of ceremonies. The program includes: George Dormonde and Partner, equilibrists on mono-cycles: Lionel (Mike) Am;s. an amateur thespian from the University of Michigan rather more Lionel than Mike, though, because he is a female impersonator: the Blue Slickers, a jazz band with a-kazoo, made more than bearable by the dancing of attractive Marie White; Eddie Allen and Doris Canfield in wild and noisy nonsense; and TjO-tie Atherton. closing the bill, wnose bid for fame is a clog dance lone while she stands on her head. -MONDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 15, 1926s New Films By JilE.

It is, as a matter of fact, exactly what we nave always imagined the inside of a steel mill to be like, but at the same time, we also find it to be as devoid of entertainment and amusement as Jie have pictured.

BUYS LOST HOLBEIN PAINTING Detroit Institute of Art Purchases Hitherto Mis-placed Work. By th- Associated Press. NEW YORK, Nov. 15. The De troit Institute of Arts has pur chased a hitherto lost -painting by Hans Holbein, sixteenth century master. It is announced. Only two other public galleries in this country the Metrooolitan Museum of Art here and the Toledo Art Mu seum are known to contain exam pies of Holbein's work. The picture is a portrait of Sir Henry Guildford, a equiry to Henry VIII. The art dealers announced they had found the painting in Europe after studying references to it in literature about Holbein and engravings made from the original by Wenzel Hollar in 1647. STATUE TO CHOPIN UNVEILED Effort Made to Impress World Composer Was of Polish Birth. Bv the Associated PresF. WARSAW, Nov. 15. As part of the three days ceremonies in hon or of Frederic r rancois Chopin, a statue of the famous composer has been unveiled here. Representatives of musical organizations in several countries were invited, to impress upon them that Chopin was a Polish composer, despite his French name. On account of the great distance, America was not represented, but delegations came from all Europe except Germany, and also from Ja pan. The delegations deposited wrea'hs, among them the soviet delegation, whose wreath was the tirst soviet floral offering at any Polish ceremony. I .a lira La, Plante Is Married. By the Associated PTe.

All of this and most of the rest of Scott Fitzgerald's splendid story Is brought out In the picture, but somewhere. In the translation Into a mile of celluloid, the finer parts of the typed version have been lost. As a spoken drama. "The Great Gatsby" is said to have missed fire and as a movie it just falls short, somehow of being satisfying. But the people who have cried long and loud for fewer happy endings will have no cause to complain here. "The Great Gatsby" ends with a funeral In a rainstorm. Incidentally. If you want to see "The Great Gatsby" you will have to hurry, for it comes off after tomorrow night, to make "way for a 10-day showing of "We're in the Navy Now." which starts Wednesday at the Missouri. Collegiate. THE best picture of the week is "One Minute to Play." in which Mr. Red Grange is starring at the Grand Central Theater. It is, as might be suspected, a college story about, or around, a football game. For some unknown and highly revolutionary reason, the producer didn't pick his college ij-pes irom among tne chorus-men R right to one of California's, seats of learning and got the real thing. The result is a comedy which fairly bubbles with youth and high spirits and which is amusing and entertaining every foot of the way. And just In passing let it be said that professional football is in danger of losing Its main asset, for Red Grange Is a movie star of the first water and from now on is going to be kept pretty busy working in the films. Another Good One. TINNING the Grand Central's offering a close second Is "There Tou Are" down at Lxjew's. The reason for the name Is not explained but It is a fast moving farce with a lot of clever wise cracking sub titles and some very funny situations. Conrad - Nagel, who Is determined to become a screen comedian, is the star and while he Is not yet a Harold Lloyd he Is bright and clever In this film. His long line of serious parts, before he decided to be a funny man, makes it hard for the fans to accept his buffonery and every mo ment expect him to turn serious and do something heroic. "There Tou Are 'is good screen entertain ment and Gus Edwards has a stage offering which is pleasing, but unhappily Mr. Edwards doesn't know when to stop. An acceptable way to shorten It would be to dispense with Mr. Edwards' tiresome song in which he showers praise upon Mr. Edwards. Holt's Colt. ZANE GREY westerner In JX which , there Is a lot of riding across horizons by Sheriffs posses, cattle rustlers and Jack Holt will amuse audiences this week at the St. Louis. It Is called "Forlorn River," and like Grey's deserts, purple sages, prairies and mountains th" river ha.s nothing to do with the plot. For that matter, neither has Holt. The plot wanders about enjoying the scenery while Jack makes love to Arietta on a time there was a good cattle rustler who fell in love with a cattleman's daughter and saved her from his former outlaw buddies and after many ponies have galloped over the mesquite this is just what happens. Up bobs Jack with a Colt in his hand, beats the vll-lian to the draw and saves the gal. It is an unusually fine Colt with a carved ivory handle. The forlorn river is especially good, also. And so. by the way. is the vaudeville. Still With Us. THE Vltaphone and "Don Juan" are still plodding along at the Capitol where the higher admission prices, or something else, has succeeded in keeping the picture fans away in droves from the Sixth Street playhouse. Syd Chaplin in "The Better 'Ole" and a new list of Vitaphone artists are to be substituted presently. Biarritz Casino Bars Golf Togs. Bv the. Associated Preaa. BIARRITZ. Nov. 15.

TUNEFUL PROGRAM FCH SECOND W CONCERT Clara Rabinovttch. Ptanlt. Is Solo ist With Symphony Orchestra in Sunday Afternoon Offering. A light, tuneful program, directed at the senses rather tha to, minds of Us hearers, yesterday afternoon gave patrons of the second popular concert of the Symphony Orchestra a session of ear-filling entertainment. Th! soloist was Clara Rablno-vitch. a pianist who gave the larghetto and allegro movements of Chopin's "Second Concerto In F Minor." in pleasing style, and offered a Valse of the Polish composer for an encore.- ' - , The orchestra opened the program with Mendelssohn's Wedding March from the "Midsummer Night's Dream" and followed it with Thomas' Inconsequential . "Carnival of Venice" overture. The soulful "Adagio Pathetlque" of Goddard swinging waltzes from "The Gypsy Baron" by Johsnn Strauss, the younger, and two numbers from Moszowsky's "Lau-rin" ballet, completed the regular program, which was augmented by Mo?zkowsky's "Malaguena" and ierne's "Petite Gavotte." ng the owner of the place and extras around Hollywood, but wentMarschal.
