NKW YORK. Oct. 19. (Special.)
An innovation In first nights
was the opening of Selwyn
Ca's newest theater with the new
est play from the pen of Jane Cowl
and Jane Murfin. with Jane Cowl in
her newest role. There were special
souvenirs for the different newspaper
critics, sterling silver badges with the
names of the celebrated ones engraved
thereon. It made a distinct impression
both upon the critics and the public
In general. The Selwyn theater is lo
cated upon Forty-second street, a
stone's throw from eight or ten other
houses, and before the end of the month
another new theater will be opened on
the same block, also to be controlled
by the Selwyns.
It was a ' triumphal occasion. "In
formation, Please." proved to be an en
joyable farce comedy, giving Miss Cowl
a new style of part. Western people
may not be as familiar with this clever
actress" work as those East of the
Mississippi. She came into prominence
as the interpreter of "weepy" parts,
playing in "Within the Law" and
"Common Clay." creating the leading
roles in both dramas. Then, like many
others, she decided to shine in other
roles and with Jane Murfin wrote
I.ilac Time." a sweet little war drama,
which played a full year to crowded
houhes in Chicago after the close of
its successful New York engagement.
"Information, riease," shows another
ride of her character work, it is a
simple little story of how a wife, to
cure her husband of his preference for
politics, decides to make him jealous
and succeeds admirably. There is
nothing startllngly original about the
plot, it is the working out that is so
clever. The supporting cast is well
chosen. Including Viola Compton, Rob
ert r.endel. Henry Stephenson and
Cyril Maude, who has been seen In
Portland since he- was last In New
York, opened the season at the Em
pire theater in ."The Saving Grace."
by C. Haddon Chambers. While not so
fine a vehicle as "Grumpy," it pleases
nevertheless and there is some good
light comedy. The story tells of an
Englishman, a sort of "Beloved Vaga
bond" character, who wishes to get Into
the Army but cannot, for two very
good reasons. One is because he has
uch a bad financial record and his
military record is equally bad, as, dur
ing his Army experience, he had the
fortune to run away with his Colonel's

Placed alongside the railways we are
usedto in America, these French and
English roads are ridiculous, especially
the French roads, and the wonder is
that they have been able to carry on
a war for four years with them. The
freight cars hold from six to 10 tons
and the little engines, with whistles
that sound like the shriek of a woman,
are beyond description. I saw but one
switchvard in France where the tracks
were laid out parallel with decent
switches, and that was In a yard that
h.rt heen set Into a French system by
American engineers. All the French
cars have big spring ouoif"

a flying switch and throw a car down
the track at such speed that I have seen
one car strike and start a string of 2j

"Maytime" opened on August 16 last

it pulled into sight and shot through
the town with the bell ringing and the

who had never seen an American en

All of our service In UTance was in
sectors or areas where we saw mostly
French troops and in England we are
associating with English, so we have
had exceDtional opportunity of observ
ing the armies of both countries at
close range. They are Dotn great in
their wav. but radically different in
temperament and training. The French
have a certain dash and courage wnicn
i tvplcal of the race, while the Eng
lish are possessed of a sort of bulldog
tenacity and determination based upon
a long and thorough, training, cut we
believe the American troops possess
both of these qualities and when the
war is over will have shown the woria
the best troops that Europe has ever
Feeling Is Changed.
When we first reached England, that
is. In December, the English had a
pretty poor opinion of us; They had
been reading everything that our pa
pers had said about what we were go
lng to do, and they didn't know much
about what we were actually doing,
results were not very spectacular at
the start, and they were not acquainted
a-ith the American methods, and could
not understand just what we were
about. They had the impression that
the Americans were all pretty mucn
of bragearts. It is pleasing to us
who are here to see that that feeling
has changed, that the British ana
French respect us as we respected
them. They are surprised at the num
ber of men who have come over since
March, they have learned something of
the American preparations in France,
they realize that it was American food
economies that kept England from go
ing hungry, and they have found out
that Americans can fight.
Since the formation of the American
division has been announced, there
have been no major operations carried
on by the Americans except the flat
tening of the St. Mihiel salinet, which,
while auite a piece of work itself, is
only an incident, when compared with
what the English and French have al
ready done and what we will probably
be called upon to do in the future. Now
Winter is coming on. Although it is
still early September, the Summer is
over, the air has the freshness and the
bite of Autumn, and the showers we
hare every few says are not warm like
they were a month ago. It is possible
that this year's campaigning is prac
tically over. But even if bad weather
should make all further advances this
Autumn and Winter impossible, the
armies and people over here feel that
the advantage is definitely on their
side, know that they are growing In
strength every day, while Germany,' at
best, is standing still, and the spirit
this Christmas will be altogether dif
ferent from what it was a year agb.
In fact, that change in morale that
has come over France and England
since we first saw these countries nine
months ago is one of the remarkable
things of the war. Everyone has su
preme confidence in General Foch and
hia ability to outwit all the Generals
Germany can command. Those of us
who are being held in England feel
very much out of it. of course, for we
were among the very first here, volun
teer units, and we are seeing tens of
