Interview Is Inadequate and
She Prefers to Write Her
Message, She Avers.
Coast Has Its Immigration Problem
as Well as East, Lecturer In
timates Admitting or Ori
entals Is Suggested.
Mary Antln does not like to talk, so
Bhe avers, either from the lecture
platform or to an interview hunter
from a newspaper; and she talks with
an enthusiasm that is a delight to the
bouI in making it clear to the inter
view hunter that she does not like to
She was caught with a few hours
time between trains last night, on her
way to Tacoma, where she is to lecture
tonight, and at dinner at the Benson
Hotel with Mrs. Julius Loulsson, of the
committee from the Council of Jewish
"Women, explained her disinclination
to talking.
"It seems to me such an inadequate
medium, the interview." she insisted.
"Kven If I do my best and the re
porter does his best, how shall we in
15 minutes deliver to the public any
message I may have for it. And then
one is expected to have opinions on so
many, many things on which one can't
have an opinion on a minute's notice.
MThlrd I'eraon l'BDrcetK)arrn
"If I have something I really feel
that 1 must say, surely 1 could say it
much better without passing it through
a third person. What did the news
paper reporters do in the days when
they did not print so many interviews
or weren't there so many of them?
"Besides. I haven't been interviewed
on all this trip more than two or three
times. I wouldn't talk. I left behind
me a trail of downcast reporters.
Some of them even printed really mean
little paragraphs about me and took
pains to mail them to me, because I
wouldn't be interviewed; ami now what
will they think of me if I should be in
terviewed after all of that?"
"But why are you on the lecture plat
form?" one is instantly impelled to ask
when she expresses a disinclination to
lecturing as well as to being inter
viewed. She May "Sircar Off," She Say.
"Because I was weak-minded enough
to yield to the pressure from those who
wanted me to lecture," is the retort. "I
think I shall be swearing off after this
engagement is done, for I do not feel
that I have a call to lecture. I have
many invitations to lecture, but never
a call.
"I can express myself so much more
eatisfactorlly by writing. Of course,
when 1 come onto the platform at the
time appointed I say what 1 have to say
to the very best of my ability, but 1
would much prefer to write it."
All of which is entertaining in the
highest degree to the interviewer, espe
cially because the speaker talks with
so much greater lucidity than the aver
age person thinks; and in a lyric little
voice with just the tiniest tinrre of an
alien accent in it; such a voice as one
seldom finds in a person born on this
cide of the Atlantic.
Immigration Brought I' p.
"Of course, we are not confronted
with the immigrant problem in such an
acute form on this Coast as you are in
the East." you venture, trying to get
the train of conversation started on
that right of way.
"Has the problem of Chinese and
Japanese immigration ceased to be a
"Come to think of it, it hasn't, but
the question of Oriental immigration is
not so prominent just now before the
people of the West as it once was. You
see. under present conditions, only cer
tain classes of Orientals are coming.
and our Oriental people on this Coast
do not present a problem of so great
seriousness Just now.
"Oh, in other words, the Pacific
i oast Is excused temporarily only fro
working out its solution of the prob
lem of immigration?" she concluded.
"You would then throw the United
Mates open to the Oriental immigrant
as well as to the immigrant from
ir.urope.' you asK.
"I believe when It says 'all men,' It
means all men. she replies.

polated in the interview, with Sig
Slehel, who is introduced in passing and
talks for a bit about the colonizing
work in Oregon for the Jewish immi

AYashington High Also Preparing
Petition for Earlier Hours.
A petition bearinp 1000 names of stu
dents at the Lincoln High School has
been presented to the Hoard of Educa
tion asking that hours be changed so
that there be one session instead of
two daily. It is desired that classes be
held from 8 A. M. to 1 P. M. without
intermission. Instead of from 9 to 12
and 1 to 2:30 as at present.
Students at the Washington High
School also are preparing a similar pe
tition, that will be presented to the
School Directors In a few days. Both
will go before the Board for decision.
"If the change asked is put into ef

"we will be able to house double the

from 1 to 5 oclock. we can get double

Bonds Kemembered.
People of our city were re
minded that a bond issue had
been voted some time ago, when
the Supreme court decided last
week that they could build an
auditorium on the Market block.
Someone, it appears, had
thought different and consider
able litigation arose, during
which time the auditorium was
not built.
There are still, however,
many of our citizens who can
remember distinctly the time
when the bonds were voted.
The auditorium will not be
completed in time for the Elks'
convention In 1912, as was orig
inally hoped.
Doc Koberg Named.
Dave Roberg, a w. k. doc and
bacteriologist, has been appoint

Board of Health. He will suc

Doc. Roberg is now in China
studying conditions there and
the Health Board will have to
worry along without him unless
Doc. White stays by the helm
until he gets back.
The Crawfish believes that
he should hurry home, for we
have a touch of the grippe and
know several others. Including
Lloyd McDowell, who have one
too, and we feel that the State
Board of Health should look
into the situation.
Members Are dot.
Several of our prominent busi

the past week' getting members
for the new Chamber, of Com

they were successful and that
they got about 4207 in four days.
The new Chamber of Com

the boys who were out helping
the memberships along last wk.
were Fred Larson, Mr. Wood
ward. Bill Hofmann, K. C. Craw

Berg. Charley Moore and 300 or
400 others.
We understand that the
Chamber Is now bigger than any
other in the world, apd expect
that the boys in New York and
Boston are feeling pretty jealous
about now.

English newspapers repeatedly have

Majestic Also orfers Return En
gagements of Favorites.
Graceful, light, young and handsome,
the Vernon Castles are making a gen

Majestic Theater. They appear in one
reel of dances, which they have exe
cuted in vaudeville and in their own
"Castle" house, and trip the light fan
tastic with the case of nymphs of the
woodland. They give demonstrations
of the tango, the maxixe, the hesita
tion, the one-step and the Justly fa
mous Caftle walk. The film will be
shown a'l week.
The extra attraction is the return of
the "Kreutzer Sonata." Because there
were thousands who did not see it, the
management has returned it for three
days. It is a picturlzation of the book
written by Count Leo Tolstoi, the fa
mous Russian author and philosopher.
This picture will be succeeded on
Wednesday by "A Fool There Was,"
another marital tragedy which was
once before at the Majestic Theater.
"The Quest" Shows Ship Afire at
Sea and Battle With Savages.
The Sunset Theater scored a dlstlnc

day to see "The Quest," first of the
Mutual Master picture releases, which
will run until Wednesday night.
"The Quest" is a really remarkable
photo-play. Its five acts are crowded
with action. A ship afire and blown up
at sea, a combat with savages for the
rescue of a beautiful woman, and a
yacht cruise through some of the most
wonderful South Sea scenery one can
Imagine are a few of its compelling
features. As for the acting, with Mar
garita Fischer and Harry Pollard in the
lead roles, it couldn t be bettered.
