'Pigs’ Both Good and Bad But Still
It Entertains; Steam’s Work Liked
By A. X. P.
“Pigs,” bailed by an enthusiastic
and imaginative press agent in tlie
Emerald yesterday as the play "that
once seat New York theater goers
into fits of hysterical laughter”
drew from an appreciative audience
audience at the lleilig last night a
few ripples of polite merriment, in
: numerable chuckles and three guf
faws sufficiently vociferous to be
■ considered uncouth.
If the play actually was the cause
I of fits in New York, it was be
! cause New Yorkers are more sus
' ceptiblo to such things than Ore
gonians, for there were no hysterics
at the lleilig last night—no so much
i as one hysteric.
“Pigs” was a farce, a rather or
dinary farce. It was aided in parts
be excellent acting, and injured in
j others by lack of it. Gordon
Stearns, in the part of Thomas At
kins, Sr., a none too successful law
yer, played his part with profession
; al skill from curtain to curtain.
The other role which was outstand
, ing was that of Grandmother Spen
cer, taken by Constance Both, who
| also directed the production.
1 The rest of the cast without ex
ception fell far below anything rep
resenting , the professional stage.
Judged purely from the amateur
standpoint, Edward Merges as Hee
i tor Spencer, Lawrence Shaw as Tom
Atkins, Jr., Grace Gardner as Mil
! dred Gushing, and Helen Allen as
i Lenore Hastings did fairly well.
Merges improved from one act to
the next to a noticeable degree;
annoying delays:

wire loose may cause you any amount of
trouble. How are your lights and battery?

Gift Thoughts
Christmas is not far distant—ami those belated gifts]
Our costume jewelry in antique to modernistic designs,
jaunty artificial flowers, gayly colored scarfs, and then
the ever practical and beautiful silk hose with the narrow
French heels help you solve the problem.
We also have a few closely fitting felts to be sold at
greatly reduced prices.

Mi S3 Gardner'also played tin- third
net nine'll bettor tiia’ii flu' first.’Miss
Hastings was blosseil with good
lilies, and il is to her credit that
tslie took a I vantage of these to
bring her performance '.just a bit
above the average of the rest of
the cast.
Diana Doininger a's Kllvn Atkins,
mother of Toni Atkins,''Jr., the hero,
was a disappointment. Her lines
rose to a glorious climax at .the
1 t>ml of the second ad, lmt she failed
1 to take advantage of the occasion
and the scene was pi a; ed in a flat
: and almost uninteresting undertone.
The mother was a tragically com
mini person, when she might hue.
; been most eharming, most lovable
j-and most interesting.
Hugh Uogan as Spencer Atkins,
elder son of Tom, Sr., amt (tlenii
I’otts as Smith Hastings, hotli show
. ed effort in reading their lines.
Neither acted, or even made a
lioticer.Ide attempt at acting.
The story, such as it was, dealt
with ail investment by Tom Atkins,
Jr., ni,d Mildred Cushing, his mi
recognized fiancee, in a pi n lull of
sick pigs, using Mrs. Atkin’s on
j gagenient ring as financial backing
for the venture. The investment,
contrary to the belief of everyone
in the cas*. except the two investors,
developed into a big money maker
and the mortgage on the old home
stead was lifted and the two young
i stars got married.
' On its own, of course, the stun
'■ would never have gotten liv: but
farce stories are not supposed to.
i The play drpcmled upon its laughs,
i and it contained much broad humor,
! though as before mentioned, no one
| was thrown into any fits. As a
j matter of fact the biggest laugh
and the greatest applause was given
the pigs who squealed after the cur

Gardner didn't improve her part nor

iliJii’t seem to point to the waning
morals of college students.*
The tendeney toward affectation
of { lie and posture, which is an im
mediate brand of theatricals, was
refreshingly :tliscnt, except perhaps
for a few moments in the first scene.
The one compliment which can uli
blnshingly be paid was-that it en
tertained. m
Considering it as the product of
tho* amateur stage, if was ti good
farce; considering it. in the light of
the professional stage, it might have
been a better farce, but not in tho
lame manner.
