VOL. X X X V I Cattaraugus, New York, January 2, 1920. No. 1 RECEPTION TO E R W IN BRUSS HELD M ONDAY EVENING. On the evening « f D ecem b er 29, tMfcPetersen-Angove Post o f the American -Legion tendered a recep­ tion to Erwin Brass, who recently ^turned home on a short furlough Mr. Brass was wounded in France in July, 1918, and has been in < hospital unable to leave until recent ly. - - About forty mem bers o f the Post were on hand to welcom e him. The first part o f the evening was spent in a regular business m eeting. A f ter the meeting was adjourned i sumptuous banquet was tendered Mr. Brass. Everyone did fu ll jus tice to the banquet, after which Bartlett Coss, president o f the Post, called on several mem bers fo r short accounts of their various experienc es. Dr. H. S. Campbell w h o was call ed op first, gave a lengthy discus­ sion of his work in the Medical- Corps. He related the procedure through which a wounded man must pass before he at last reached base hospital and eventually home His talk was very interesting and was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone present. Harold Davis gave an interesting talk on his work in the Ordnance Department, and the hardships through which he passed. Henry Merow gave a short talk on his work with the repair gang and how they, fixed “ Lizzies” in the army. Several representatives o f the Navy were called upon to give talks but they all seemed to be reticent in explaining the intricacies o f the Navy, Mr. Brass was called on to give a short talk and told how he was wounded by shrapnel and taken to a first aid station. He also gave a good account o f how he was taken to Paris and eventually sent back to the United States. His talk was | very ineresting and seem ed to be enjoyed by everyone present. After Mr. Brass finished speaking Mr. Coss called on Mr. Fred John« i, who attended the banquet as a representative o f the citizens o f Cat­ taraugus. He gave a very interest­ ing talk and said that he was pre­ sent at the banquet fo r a specific purpose. He presented Mr. Brass with a purse o f two hundred and forty dollars. His word* regards to the purse were as follow s : “ Mr. Brass, I don’t w a n t you to regard' this g ift solely fo r its intrin­ sic value, although it is not slight, but more f o r the spirit in which it is | given by the people o f Cattaraugus for your valiant services in the war.” After Mr;—Johnson’s speech Mr. Brass thanked the donors fo r the I purse and the Legion fo r the recep- f tion and said that shortly he hoped L to make his home here in Cattarau- ! gus once more. * After his final words Mr. Coss brought the m eeting to a close and ; everyone went home voting the re- ! ception a huge success. The Legion is to be com plim ented -on the banquet as it was made a success entirely through* the efforts B a b y Mine” and other safeesses. The author’s chain: ing_J»uclie s and entrancing glimpses /into the) world o f make-believe are accenj»ated by the delightful, personality o f the lit­ tle star, who interprets every situa­ tion with artistry. The story is dramatic, softened by many humorous flashes, and heightened by an intense romantic interest. The two greatest prizes in life— love and personal success— are pitted a g a i n s t each other, and the little actress is forced to make ■ choice between the man she loves and the work to which she has devot­ ed her life. How that decision is made, and her supreme sacrifice in abandoning, her career and, accepting the quiet lire offered her in ex­ change fo r her artistic success, are engrossing!/ portrayed. Supported by a n , unusually capa­ ble cast, Mary Piekford in “ Behind the Scenea’' renders one o f the best characterizations o f her1 career. The interest o f the spectator never permitted to be diverted from the screen,1 and the many tender touches are so arranged as to fur­ nish a production o f unusual bal ance. HORTON C.
