Singer Will Live at Hood River
"Murphy, the Mun Who Sings to
Beat the Band," was here Sunday
for a farewell look at his rauch be
fore leaving for the east to fill an
engagement. Mr. Mnrphy realizes
that the time will come when he w 111
get tired of singing to beat the band
and wants a place where the
nolMlest musical sound will be the
humming of bees In an orchard.
Therefore he has acquired a snug
little orchard In the far recesses of
the L'pper Valley with part of the
tidy sum that he has laid up for a
rainy day. There he w ill rest from
his labors and give the fog horn
voice that has won him name and
fame a vacation. As his name Indi
cates Mr. Murphy Is not French. In
fact he was born In dear old London,
which Is not, however, so far away
from Ireland that an attentive lis
tener cannot detect a suspicion of
brogue when he speaks. A little
blarney along with It adds Interest
to his conversation. Blue-eyed,
smooth shaven ami clean cut he Is
the acme of optimism and enthusi
asm, and after meeting him It Is
easy to understand why the band
has no show when Murphy sings.
Monday he left for Portland and ex-
pects to leave the coast shortly for
New York, where he will give the
bands of the empire state a whirl.
