STAGE HANDS MAY
BE ASKED TO STRIKE
Musicians May Call on Affili
ated Unions to Help in Dis
pute With Managers.
THEATERS "STAND PAT'
Abolition of Orchestra Discussed
by Several and Attempt to Do
Without Music Is Proposed.
Men Defend Position Taken.
Efforts to call a strike of the theatri
cal stage employes doubtless will be
attempted by the Musicians' Mutual As
sociation, if the Portland theatrical
managers persist in. their intentions to
discharge all musicians employed in
The theatrical men have given the
musicians the customary two weeks'
notice of - discharge, and the musicians
eay that they are prepared to quit at
the end of that time. The managers'
action followed submission by the mu
sicians of a sliding scale fixing a maxi
mum number of men to be employed In
each theater after September 1.
The musicians justified this proposed
scale on the ground that it has been
adopted in a number of other cities. It
provides a minimum number of men in
the first place, but permits the theaters
to employ a lesser number if they in
crease the wages of the remaining mu
sicians in fixed ratios named in the
Haucen Rcfue PnptuL
This Droposal met with Instant dis
favor by the managers. They held a
series of meetings, and on Sunday de
cided that they would oust all union
But their troubles promise not to end
there. The musicians are affiliated with
the Central Labor Council and with the
American Federation of Labor. They
have a separate and close-working al
liance with the stage employes union,
and it is reported that they are plan
ning to call a strike of the stage em
ployes in the event that the theatrical
managers employ nonunion men in their
The managers, however, have given
no intimation of their intentions fur
ther than discharging the union musi
cians. It is possible that they will try
to get along without orchestras.
George B. Jeffrey, president of the
local union of the Musical Mutual As
sociation, declares that the Portland
theaters are alone in their opposition
to the minimum-number-of-men rule.
Others Recognize, Thry Say.
"At the recent convention of our or
ganization at San Francisco," he said
yesterday, "a representative requested
the convention on behalf of the pro
ducers and managers to request the
different locals to keep their minimums
as low as possible, and not to raise
them at this time, on account of the un
settled condition in the theatrical world
caused by the war and the competition
of the moving-picture theaters. Thi
will go to show that the principal man
agers of the United States recognize
the minimum number of men law as a
working condition. Up to the first week
In September the musicians have sim
ply insisted that the managers adhere
to their old number; that is, five in the
Heilig, five in the Baker, six in the
BmpresB, six in Pantages, eight for the
Orpheum, three for the Lyric and five
at the house at Eleventh and Morrison
Scale Proponed Defended.
"As regards the sliding scale, which
has been submitted to the managers, to
go into effect the first week in Sep
tember, I can only say that it is based
Upon the principle that, with our past
experience, we feel that we cannot do
satisfactory work either in justice to
the public or to ourselves with less men
than this standard calls for, and,
though, of course, we do not say in any
way that we will not work with less
men, still we feel that when any num
ber below this standard is used it en
tails just that much more work and
strain on the men who are left, and it
is only in justice to them that they
should receive extra compensation."

EMPRESS BILL IS LIKED
"EVERYBODY" INTERESTING PLAY
LET WELL HANDLED BY CAST.
Numbers of Other Entertaining Acts
Are on Programme That Is Delight
to His Audiences
"Everybody," an allegorical playlet
with a message that all can understand,
is the headline attraction at the Em
press this week. The offering is well
staged. Is full of epigramatic lines and
is presented in a way that makes it
one of the biggest vaudeville hits of
the year. There are four scenes. In
the first, "the luncheon hour," Every
body deserts work for Pleasure and
In "the pleasure hour" Everybody
plays the races, is deserted by Luck,
and the third scene finds him in the
depths of misfortune. The final journey
back to Work and Honesty brings to
the hero, Fortune.
The playlet is along the line of
"Everywoman," but is, perhaps, wider
in Its appeal. John Lester takes the
role cleverly, and each of the 12 mem
bers of the cast gives a faithful Inter
pretation of his part. The keynote of
the act found in the lines is "Much of
life is largely what we make it."
A beautiful girl, a genius with the
violin and a- vocalist of great ability
is Elizabeth Cutty. One of the triumphs
of her act is her interpretation of "The
Mocking Bird." An Irish lullaby is
George Yeomans delighted everyone
in the big audiences yesterday with his
bunch of original nonsense in the form
of a mirth-provoking monologue. George
got several encores, which he well de
served. Shaw and Lee, two nifty dancers,
dapper fellows in smart attire, gave an
exhibition of lively steps and received
their share of appreciation. They are
nimble and graceful actors.
A brilliantly staged feature is the
act of the two acrobats, the Ahrens,
who come direct from the New York
Hippodrome. The movies are especially
funny, and round out the dandy bill.
