a matinee Wednesday. Miss Adams ar

Quality Street" is best described as
a study of youth and spinsferhood, with
love affair as its basis. There is an
added charm to the play In the fact
that it is laid in the long ago, at a.
time when England's shores were
threatened by Napoleon. And while the
comedy was written 14 years ago, it is
decidedly timely and opportune. The

by W. H. Galvauii.
Emrle Hovelacque, a representative
of the French Ministry of Instruction
one of the most distinguished figures in
public instruction in France, will be a
visitor in Portland within the next few
weeks and will deliver one or more lec
tures while here.
In all probability he will bring the
news that Henri Bergson. the French
philosopher, who since the death of
Tolstoi has been perhaps the most
talked of international figure, will also
pay his respects to Portland some time
this Summer. The French colony of
Portland is particularly interested in
the coming of M. Hovelacque, and will
endeavor to have M. Bergson map his
route to the San Francisco Exposition
by way of Portland.
W. H. Galvani, secretary of the Oregon-Peace
Society, and as such identi
fied with the American Society for In
ternational Conciliation as local repre
sentative; has been advised that M.
Hovelacque will be in Portland soon.
His mission is "purely for cultural rea
sons to acquaint the American people
with French learning, and in turn to
learn from the American people the
things in which America excels."
M. Hovelacque recently arrived at
San- Francisco, where he has been de
livering a series of lectures on French
thought and culture.
Mr. Galvani expects to receive in a
few days the dates on which M. Hovel
acque will be in Portland.

CHURCH UNION COMPLETED
First Services Held by Central Pres
The Central Presbyterian Church,
formed by the the union of the
Third and Hawthorne Park Presby
terian churches, held Its first serv
ices yesterday in the Third Church
building, East Pine and East Thir
teenth streets, with Rev. L. K. Grimes
in the pulpit. Merging of the two
churches is finished and all the old
church property will be taken over
by the new organization.
The old Third Church was organized
by Rev. D. O. Ghormley more than
28 years ago, and originally stood
at East Seventh and East Oak streets.
Rev. G. A. Blair organized the First
Cumberland Presbyterian Church in
1896, which was changed, to the Haw
thorne Park Presbyterian Church
when the Cumberland Presbyterian
Church was merged into the Presby
terian Church. The Third Church
building will be occupied until a new
structure is erected further eastward,
and a committee will be appointed to
look up a site in the near future.
