Yesterday, through the medium of Man
ager Fred Belasco, I reached the two tal
ented players who are destined to lead
the Belawo stock company through the
long and. It Is promised, brilliant season,
which commences on May 27. Thote whom
I met were Lucia Moore, known In
theatrical circles for labors oft and meri
torious upon the lime-lighted stage, and
Eugene Ormonde, that big, stunning ath
lete, who turned the town's head last
Winter when he played leads . here with
Blanche Bates in that elusive, darling of
a play, "The Darling of the Gods."
There was a group of us. John Salnpo
lls was there, making good-natured
threats of what he expected to do with
that company when he assumes the re
sponsibilities of etage management; the
two "leads" above referred to. and in
that little reception room with us was
also the expansive and always Interesting
personality of Fred Belasco. much like
Brother David, and but one degree re
moved from him.
Lucia Moore and Eugene Ormonde
dominated the situation, as In all reason,
for theatrical magnates, stage managers
and newspaper men were ever of small
import when leading men and women are
In the picture.
We let them do most of the talking, and
they did It well.

"Gene" Ormonde, with his six feet-odd of
symmetrical height and almost gladia
torial widencs? of shoulders, but she is not
a little woman. I should say she Just
about measures up to the figure of Ceclla
Loftus, which Is almost an Ideal condition
precedent for a leading woman. She is
Southern, of Louisiana, and retains much
of the langorous accent of her native par
ish. Her father was a physician, a sur
geon In the Confederate army, and she is
connected with the Shelby and Gooch
families, of the best thoroughbred stock
of the South.
Her experience has been varied and of
the character best calculated to train an
actress In the way pho should go. She
has just closed a successful season In
stock at Memphis, and comes to Portland
after a flying trip to New York, where she
went to nurse an Invalid mother.

Mr. Ormonde Is not a typical actor In
appearance or disposition. He looks like
a lieutenant of the- British Life Guards.
I was surprised when he told me he was
born In Boston and was as American as
pork and beans. He's a strapping big
fellow, clean-limbed and strikingly band
some. Neither is this latter said because
he's a leading man. It's the truth an'
I ever told it. He's handsome enough
to be a diplomat or a doctor. Apropos of
the latter he was "cut out" for a sur
geon and was sent to college for the
purpose, but he got stage- foolish and
"cut out" the surgery. For a number of
years he has played leads with Mrs.

number of our best stock comoanles.

and they have nothing to sell, nothing to
buy, nor do they make junketing trips
of their unique outings.
These excursions arc given twice a year
under the auspices of the California Pro
motion Committee, an organization which
is devoted to the upbuilding of the whole
state. The Promotion Committee is the
central organization of the 151 chambers
of commerce and development associa
tions In California, and the development
organizations as they exist In California
are practically unknown In other states.
One of the most remarkable excursions
took in the coast line south of San Fran
cisco and the southern part of California.
The Itinerary of four day3 covered more
than 1400 miles. In this brief time the
members of the excursion visited and
were entertained at 22 different cities.
The Journey led from San Francisco to
San Diego, a.dlstance of GOO miles. Dur
ing a portion of the trip the San Fran
cisco merchants were accompanied by a
party of 25 prominent men of the south
ern part of California, who traveled as
the committee's guests In a private car
attached to the special. This journey was
not in the nature of a junketing trip, but
was made for the purpose of increasing
the feeling of co-operation and establish
ing a personal relationship between mem
bers of the different organizations en
gaged In state development work.
