"The Dccstrlct Skule"
"The Decstrict Skulc," the play
given tinder the auspices of the St.
Johns Community Club in the
Y. W. C. A. building last Friday
evening, was a decided hit. The
building proved wholly inadequate
to accommodate the number desir
ug to sec the performance, aud
quite a number were unable to gain
admittance. P. A. Getz instructor
of James John High School, was the
author and coach of the play, and it
was a clever and wittily constructed
production. Some of the costumes
worn were certainly wonderful to
behold in this day and age. Judg
ing from the plaudits and merriment
created the audience was highly
pleased with the entertainment pro
vided. The program follows:

Saturday or Sunday night the
grocery store of R. L. Bartlctt, next
door to this office, was burglunzed.
Entrance was made through a back
window. A glass was broken and
an inner bar removed. A few cig
arcttes and two pieces of chewing
tobacco were taken. About 50
cents iu small change was also taken
irom the till, nvuictitiy some
youthful dime novel heroes imagine
pirates have left hidden treasures
along the banks of the Willamette
aud the site of Mr. Barttctt's store
aud this office is the treasure chest.
A grave mistake. Since this office
was burglarized a short time ago,
the entire force has made diligent
search aud were unrewarded for
their labors. Better try a new field.
Sunday evening an automobile
driven by Mr. McMurreu of 510G,
Forty-second ave., southeast, turned
turtle on Burlington street aud Wil
lamette boulevard. His daughter,
Mis Mildred McMurreu, received
several painful bruises. The patient
is resting easy iu the Peninsula hos-
Last Friday evening the follow
ing members of Peuinsula Chapter
Royal Arch Masons visited Sunny

Russell, Fret! Leftwich, J. S.
Kenney, W. L. McGuire, II. G.
Gazley, Lee Johnson, Wiley Dyer,
J. O. Bailey aud D. E. Veruou.
Mrs. Vernon started with the com
panions, but upon second reflection
the council recalled the fact that
nothing feminine ever entered the
sacred portals of King Solomon's
temple or the second tabernacle.
Therefore she was tenderly cast
aside on East Main street, where
she visited her daughter, Mrs. von
Grocuwald, until a seasonable hour,
when she was picked up by com
panions and conveyed safely libnie.
Attorney Bailey was one of the
trio exalted to the royal arch. Mr.
Baily hoped to win favors from
home companions, but was doomed
to disappointment. He finally ar
rived home safely alter making a
pilgrimage through Damascus aud
other places iu the Holy Laud. The
hospitality of Suiiuysiuc chapter is
too well known to require further
comment at this time. Companions
from there arc frequent visitors in
St. Johns, aud members of Peniu

A Portland boy was run

High weeds were responsible for
the accident: the crossing was hid-

Recital Was a Fine Success
The violin recital given by pu
pils of Elmer Sliced, the well known
concert violinist and teacher, at the
James John High school auditorium
Friday evening of last week, was
immensely enjoyed by all present.
Each pupil demonstrated iu a most
pleasing manner the results of the
instructions they had received,
and played like finished artists.
Each pupil played a solo from
memory, with a hue interpretation
and bcautiiul tone. Two selec
tions were played with ten violins.
Many iu the audience spoke of the
beautiful bowing, as they all bows
worked exactly iu unison. The au
dience seemed to appreciate every ,
number, as all remained per
fectly quiet during the entire per
formance. After the conclusion of
the pupils' program Mr. Sliced ren
dered several solos which proved
him to be a great master of the vio
lin. Those who were present need
no further evidence as to his ability
as a concert violinist and teacher.
Miss Margaret E. Smith was at
tnc piano ana piayeu an ex
cellent accompaniment for nit per
formers. Pupils who took part iu
the recital, names and solos they
