Those of us who read with affec
tionate interest John Fox Junior's
novel, "The Trail of the Lonesome
Pine." and found their hearts steeped to
the brimful measure with sunshine and
gentle sadness, as they went with June
along the rough trail to the lonely,
gaunt old pine that stood sentinel at
the entrance to Lonesome Cove, were
lost again in joyous bewilderment
when once more they struck the trail
hewed out for them by Eugene Walters,
In his dramatized form of the book,
which came to the Heilig last night
for a four nights' run.
Last season Eugene Walters pre
sented the beautiful and talented Mrs.
Walters, who is Charlotte Walker, in
the role of June for a tour of this
Coast, following the play's New York
presentation. At the same time he
sent another company touring through
the Middle States, down into that part
of the South not Included in Miss Wal
ker's tour, and at its head he placed
a young and lovely girl, Isabelie Lowe.
This year, while Miss Walker tries out
a new play of her husband's making,
the responsibility for the success' of
June Is left entirely to little Miss
Lowe. And a right good accounting,
or to quote her line in the play, "a
right smart showin'," she makes of the
difficult role.
Best in Story Culled for Play.
It is easy to sit calmly down and
read with our own good or bad inter
pretation the written lines of an au
thor. John Fox makes his characters
human and the lines he gives his peo
ple of the Virginian mountains are
simple and rugged, but beautiful in
the quaint philosophy they breathe.
Eugene Walter has culled the best
lines, the bravest characters, the most
thrilling bits from the story and woven
them into a beautiful play. We are in
troduced to June, and to John Hale, who
means so much in her poor little life,
at the very rise of the curtain. They
meet in the shadow of the whispering
tall old pine. Nature's motif of a for
est melody, a thought that slips gently
inrougn me play in vibration respon
sive to its pretty story.
Barefooted, untutored saved in the
lore of the birds and flowers of her
woodland home, June foreshadows the
great miracle of the dawn of love and
womanltood and her unconscious wooing
of Jack sweeps onward with the fresh
ness of a breeze from one of June's
own lovely blue mountains.
Fend Mixes In Story.
Keud and the battle of brother
against brother mix into the romance,
and told in its play form, this part of
the story affords a truer interpreta
tion of the primitlveness of the folk
6f the Virginia hills than one could
possibly conjure from the story on the
printed page.
Isabelie Lowe invests the role of June
with a rare deep sympathy and a youth
that adds much to the romantic element.
John Davidson, quiet in his methods but
purposeful, is John Hale. Jack Pendle
ton, a Los Angeles actor, gives a highly
natural portrayal of the part of Bob
Berkeley. John Kennie, as Uncle Billy,
who couldn't think without scratching
his sparse locks, and Eva Benton as
his wife, Ole Hun, afforded comedy, as
does also marguerite Abbott, in the role
of Loretty, and Paul Schwager, as Dave,
two primitive mountaineers whose
"bantering" is delightful.
Noah Beery, as Judd Tolliver, and
Adrian Morgan, as Cal Heaton, both big
roles, play capably with attention par
ticularly to the difficult vernacular of
the types..
"The Trail of the Lonesome Pine"
strikes a Joyous note of coloring in its
Impressive scenic embellishment, and
author and artist have charmingly in
terwoven their conception of action and

They sold newspapers along the route
of travel to earn their living and to
pay for repairs to the much-overworked
and creaking automobile. Finally, as
their pocketbooks had become almost
empty, the automobile became more
balky. At Seattle the negotiator of
the trails made its final grunt and ex
perts pronounced It "dead" so far as
further use was concerned.
The youthful trail-blazers left the
automobile "cemetery" with heavy

was attracted to a new seven-passenger
automobile standing on Cherry
