Following- the set rule of the game

viding that the Medes and Persians en
Joyed stock, vode-ville and the legit,
this review begins by baldly asserting-
that "the house was packed from
pit to dome." All the boxes, loges. the
balcony and peanut gallery was filled
and a million late comers hung them
selves on the chandeliers or draped
themselves on each other's shoulders
and decorated the doorways. For a
complete list of "those present" see
membership list of Portland Ad Club
and then add the name of every other
man you know.
Having disposed of rule one, we gal
lop now to rule two, which says the
"reviewer must state the condition of
the audience." Hardly a. fair proceed
ing, but the usual "large and happy
smiling faces" were in the majority,
and that spirit and good will stuff

Place and Reason Revealed.
The place? Well it can be put in
here, or kept till the last line, but it
was the Portland Hotel dining-room.
The reason? Letting the Theatrical
Managers" Association . put something
over in the name of entertainment.
It was right in the midst of a per
fectly nioe meal, or to be absolutely
correct, as near a perfectly nice meal
as anyone ever gets at a club luncheon,
that loud and discordant waitings of
tortured stringed instuments smote the
air. Also ear. Peaceful Ad clubbers,
prodding patiently at their food, sus
pended operations and. rose to their
feet to applaud wildly as the guests
of honor, looking more like anything
under seven heavens than the regula
tion, guests of honor, pranced Into the
George Baker Heads Mob.
Heading the long winding line of in
surgents came George 1. Baker,, his
generous proportions clad neatly and
attractively in a - linen ulster- of The
vintag- of 1492- Two graceful straws
dangled coquettishly from his lips, and
a stubblefield set of whiskers worked
amiaDiy as ne prattled merrily on his
line of march about the room.
Right behind him followed the Heiny
Band, playing dear old favorites like
"After the Ball," "Two Little Girls in
Blue" and "They're Shifting Grandpa's
Grave to Dig the Sewer." In dignified
grandeur or jaunty socialism, accord
ing to their respective mental out
looks on life, followed next the mem

Calvin Hellicr was a flossy old sport,

pronounced as to the color scheme of

Everybody made speeches.
Theatrical history in Portland was
traced from the time the first medi
cine man came through with an ox
cart. We learned of the down-sittings
and uprisings within the harmonious
little band of T. M. A.'s. and listened
with real glee to their friendly little
recitals. They had arranged a pro
gramme to fill in the chinks of lone
someness when someone vasn't speech,
Ben Deely, from the Orpheum, sing
ing a California song, struck 12 in the
hearts of the Ad Club. We sang with
him, and later, when Bill Pruitt, an
other Orpheum singer, made Deely's
song a feature, with the busy little
A. Club Quartet doming in on the
close harmony stuff the audience
simply yelled Itself hoarse. The
Merette sisters, about as big as con
ventional peanuts, whisked about and
fiddled cheery notes, the Olivetti Trou
badors troubadored with effect, while
Laurence Johnston and the Inevitable

of ventriloquists and amused consid

MAN THROWN INTO STREET
Midnight Crowds Threaten Injury 'to
Midnight crowds in the -vicinitv of
Sixth and Washington streets were
nearly treated to a riot Wednesday
night. Cooler heads finally separated
the belligerent factions.
A waiter in the Baltimore cafeteria
had thrown a man out of the place
with methods that might have passed
muster with a Villa or Huerta, but
which were resented by the passing
crowd. The man ejected was said to
be under the influence of liquor, but
instead of being pushed or taken out
the waiter used "bouncing" methods,
his much lighter victim being thrown
in a neap on tne sidewalk.
A crowd gathered and threatened tho
waiter, but a few saner minds restored
peace without the aid of the police.

BT LEONE CASS BAER.
Titta Ruffo, worlds greatest bari

deeply into the meshes of Italy's great
est dish, spaghetti, when I tramped
tardily Into the lobby of the Multnomah
hotel. Time, tide and temperament
wait for no man, you know, and so I
fully expected to find a suave and
smiling manager, who would Inform
me that Titta Ruffo also did not wait
for man or tardy women with ques
tions to ask. But I believe I could
have been another half-hour late and
not have stretched the hem of my skirt
with long strides, or have tried to save
my shoes, and yet have been there in
time for the appointment.
Ruffo Amiable, After All.
For Titta Ruffo was so amiable. Ho
smiled and bowed and exclaimed in
Italian, quite as beamingly as if I were
come to present him with a gold loving
cup. He hunted out the reddest of
many red divans, with the aid of an
interpreter, and we sat down in friend

Ruffo immediately discovered that
all the Italian I know is the names of
two musical composers, a way to fix
potatoes and "ciri ciri bin." when its
done with a concertina.
And all the- American that Ruffo
knew was "yes" and "no," which of
themselves are excellent words in their
places, but hardly enouch to round mit
a whole conversation.
So we both signalled wildlv for heir.
and the interpreter nobly responded.
Naturally, the first thing I wanted' to
know was if it really was a splash of
temperament, as given out in San

Temperament? Never! A touch of
bronchitis attacked the million-dollar
throat on the trip from Los Angeles to

GKAXD OPERA IS ON' TOXIGHT
Portland Will Hear World-Famous
Stars Headed by Titta Ruffo.
Portland's season of grand opera be
gins tonight in the Orpheum with every
indication of being the most brilliant
ever seen in the city. With world
famous stars, headed by the celebrated
Titta Ruffo. who appears in the open
ing bill tonight, and Mary Garden, who
closes the engagement in her greatest
role, "Tosca." Saturday night, the Chi
cago company comes to the city with
a record of triumphs this year that
stretch from Philadelphia to the Fa
clfio Coast. '
The repertoire is varied, the casts
strong, and prices decidedly lower
than last year when the company ap
peared here. From the music-lovers'
standpoint, the appearance of Ruffo is
probably the matter of greatest mo
ment. He has been heralded as the
world's greatest baritone, and tonight
Portlanders will get an opportunity
to hear the splendid voice in "p.
gliaccl" and form Its own Judgment of
riuiro. wno arrived In the city last
night, declared that he was in fine
voice and "positively will sing."
From the operatic viewpoint, the two
operas that are exciting the greatest
interest are "Aida," the Saturday mat
inee in which Carolina White and Julia
Claussen. the Swedish contralto, will
sing, and "Parsifal." which has 1ut
been released from Beyreuth this year
and is being produced throughout the
world for the first time. In America
mere are only ten performances of
Richard Wagner's spectacular creation
and luckily Portland is the only city
in ine r-acmc isorinwest to hear it.
Among the great artists who will
appear as principals in 'Parsifal" are
.iinnie baitzman-totevens, who created
the role of Kundry in America, and
Otto Marak. the celebrated German
Wagnerian tenor, who was brought to
America by the Chicr company es
pecially to sing the title role.

TACOMA, Wasn., April ' 2 That the
American merchant marine is return
ing to Its former prestige at the rate
of about 8 per cent a year was as
serted today by Secretary of Com
merce William C. Kedfleld at a lunch
eon given in his honor at the Com
mercial Club today. Mr. Kedfleld had
been urged by other speakers to use
his Influence to have obnoxious ship
ping laws repealed, and in reply as
serted that the need would best be met
by American brains and gradual devel

In support of his statement, be cited
a number of recent inventions which
he believed would greatly aid in devel

clared that American firms could build
ships as cheaply as any nation, pro
vided the vessels were built on a
standardized plan. Sketching the
growth of shipping on the Great Lakes
the Secretary added:
"I don t think we will succeed on the
ocean until our need is severe and our
shipbuilding Is highly specialized as it
is on the lakes. Since 1910 there has
been a 25 per cent increase In Ameri
can shipbuilding, and it looks to me
like a permanent growth with a gain
of a little over 8 per cent per year."
Secretary Kedfleld arrived from Se

steamer Kitsap and was welcomed by
a delegation of local business men.
