Board of Directors Goes on
Record for Short Time.
Greater Individuality of Action Provided-
by Change In Con
tention l'ormation.
Favoring extension and fuller appli
cation of the eight hour day. making
certain changes in tne machinery of
the organization, and listening: to re
ports, gave the board of directors of
the central governing body of the
Loyal Legion of Loggers and Lum
bermen two busy sessions yesterday,
both full of constructive work.
A resolution was introduced favor
ing the eight-hour day as it is applied
in the limits of Loyal Legion, for all
industry in the country and met with
the enthusiastic approval of the board.
Included in the resolution was a motion
to inform representatives of the three
Xorthwest states in Congress of the
action taken, and to urge upon these
representatives its full consideration in
framing labor legislation.
Within the lumbering industry
itself, it was resolved to extend the
present basic eight-hour day in force
in the sawmills to the planing mills.
The workday is to be handled in the
name manner in the planing mills as
in the sawmills that is. eight hours
constitutes the basic workday, and
when emergency requires overtime, this
shall be paid for at the rate of time
and a half.
Furthermore, the board went on
record as favoring the eight-hour day
in contract work, such as loading, pil
ing, taking down, and "sticking" and
unloading for the dry kilns. Much of
this work is done by contract with
the workman and, in such cases, the
regulations of the Loyal Legion do not
apply, and cannot be enforced. Never
theless the board brings the weight of
its moral influence to extend the eight-
hour day to such operations.
Workmen whose religious convic
tions will not permit them to sign the
application oath of the Legion will
hereafter be accepted as associate
members, but without the right to vote.
Organization work in the field, it was
resolved, is hereafter to be done entire
ly by the employe members of the
board of directors in each district, thus
doing away with the office of "district
Heretofore the chairman of the con
fcrence committee in each local has
been ex-officio the delegate to the an
mial convention of the organization
held In the summer months of each
year. A change was made in this regu
lation to the effect that after the con
vention of 1919 the delegate to conven
tion shall not be the local chairman
but shall be elected by popular vote in
each local at least 15 days prior to the
time of the convention's assembly. Dues
hereafter will be paid monthly, instead
of quarterly.
Labor Commissioner C. II. Gram of
Salem was present by invitation and
made an interesting address before the
board, in which he gave expression to
the hearty sympathy of the state
bureau of labor with the principles
upon which the Loyal Legion is found
ed. The board also listened to a report
by its own sanitation inspector. Dr.
Thorfinn Tharaldsen, on living condi
tions in the camps. Dr. Tharaldsen also
announced that he was prepared to
submit a report on industrial accident
and sick insurance.

Boulevard Gossip
When fashion promenades, the light,
gracious talk of smart young women,
.strikes the keynote of the latest
styles. And what is today's gossip?
What is this golden glint shampoo,
with its delicious tripping name that
bubbles up so merrily to every maiden's
lips, along the famous boulevards?
r Oh. they've just tried it, you know,
they whisper one to another. And
it's "ravishing, wonderful, quite tor
enchanting!" Not a dye or a stain,
oh, no, an absurdly simple little
thing. . . You just wash in a golden
gleam, a sort of bit-of-sunlight, and
wash it out again, my dear. Fancy,
anything so chic! A bit of liquid
rouge on the hair. The modern
beauty shop is really delectable, isn't
it? But. golden glint shampoo is the
very latest, very smartest, quite the
most original "make-milady-beautiful
" gift of all.
That fashionable Beauty of the
boulevards is bringing her secret to
all exclusive hair-dressing establish
ments, by asking for golden glint
shampoos wherever she goes. Be
sure and get the best, by asking for
Cinderella golden glint-.
HERE has never been a time
when the public demand for
music as actual entertainment
was so positive and so growing all
over America," said Fred A. Bishop,
who has arrived from New York by
way of San Francisco to direct the
Alcazar Musical Stock company.
"Whether the musical shows at the
Liberty theaters at the huts, the can
teens and dugouts of the camps and
battlef ronts, musical shows which, by
way, were more popular with our boys
than even the vaudeville bills and com
edy dramas presented to them, are re- 1
sponsible or not, I do not say, but
music is in the ascendant for popular
show purposes.
"The manager who allows his thea
ter to 'go dark' while a musical stock
or a musical programme of any worth
while sort, is available, is overlooking
one of the most attractive, practicable
and permanent enterprises now offer
ing to theater managers and owners
everywhere In the United States. It is
to Portland's everlasting credit that
the Alcazar management was adroit
enough and resourceful enough to dis
cern all this impulse and assemble a
musical stock company of high dis
tinction and broadly generous plans. I
have been identified with musical pro
ductions, and stock especially, for more
years than it is necessary to set down,
and I am safe in saying that this com
pany is the best all-around organiza
tion of its kind I have ever known. I
have unbounded confidence in a big
Mr. Bishop's stop at San Francisco
was to gather together a chorus and
he says it was no easy matter finding
girls. The merely pretty type will not
do, he said.
"It is an exploded theory that looks
are all that is necessary to put a girl
into a chorus, unless, of course, it's a
Winter Garden show, where the voices
are a negligible quality, if existing at
all. But in stock the merely pretty
chorus maid gets nowhere. We have no
time to develop talent. In the ordi
nary production of a road show the
five or six weeks of rehearsal will de
velop whatever latent talent the girl
may have, and by dint of hard labor
a finished product will be turned out.
In stock there's no time for this. The
girl is dancing one set of steps through
this week and learning a new set for
next week, and next week she is learn
ing a new series ror tne iouowing
"I interviewed a million girls, I'll
wager, before I picked the 16. I wanted
combinations of looks, voices and danc
ing ability. I collected my quota of
chorus men eight of them very eas
ily. We are all busy as the proverbial
bees on our production of 'Mile. Mo
diste,' which opens our season on
June 2."
That little line, "After that I've noth
ing to do," has no place In Mr. Bishop's
vocabulary. He hopes, he says, to see
our beach resorts, and especially the
ones where the great pines grow up
to the sky. He hopes to see the Co
lumbia highway, and some time during
the ten weeks he is to be here to take
some hikes out over our best-beloved
trails. He is essentially a nature
lover crazy over the outdoors, raving
over a bit of blue sky or a mountain
crest, and he lives, breathes, and some
times eats and sleeps within the walls
of the theater. Here is a page from
one of Mr. Bishop s days. Take Tues
day for example, and start at 7 A. 1L
The stage is bare and Mr. Bishop has
read the manuscript for next week s
play and has cast the roles for the
production. "No easy matter," he says,
"where I have so many excellent sing
ers, all competent and worthy of the
big roles."
Then he takes the first act and
makes a plan, a regular drawing of
the stage as it will be for that act, in
dicating doors, pictures, windows,
chairs and everything you can Imagine
goes into any act. He does this with
every act and gives it to the stage
carpenter, who starts work immediately.
Next Mr. Bishop makes a complete
list for the property man's use, a list
of every article used in every scene.
Next he makes out a plot of the light
ings for the electrician. Follows then
a get-together meeting of all the work
ing staff and suggestions, consulta
tion and directions. JJy that time it's
10 o'clock and the merry merry ar
rives to go over its music with the
musical director, John R. Britz, "and.
by the way, he's one of the best in the
business," admiringly adds Mr. Bishop.
At 10:30 the principals arrive, Mabel
Wilber, Oscar Figman, May Wallace,
Eva Olivotti. Charles Sedan, Henry
Coot, Lee Daley, George Nathanson and
Dltmar Poppln and the rest, who are
given their parts and go over the first
reading of the play with Mr. Bishop.
Tuesday afternoon the chorus always
has a holiday while the principals are
learning their roles. Next the princl
pais meet with Mr. Britz and have a
reading of their parts in the music
During this time Mr. Bishop is making
out the costume plot, a complete list
of every blessed article of raiment worn
by every soul from Mabel Wilber down
to the littlest chorus maid. "Hats,
shoes, everything," says air. Bishop,
"and we telegraph the list to Gold
smith in San Francisco, who makes it
up and fires it back immediately."
The remainder of the week every
minute not utilized in actually play
ing is spent in rehearsing. Monday
morning a big dress rehearsal is given
and the new show opens on Monday
night- There you are, and when there's

ASTORIA, Or.. May 21. (Special.)
Members of the Astoria school board
brandi as -. terly false the statements
made by Merrill F. Hanville, discharged
principal of the Adair nchool. and they
are awaiting the apprehension of Han
ville by the Portland police to answer
for his attack upon 11. L. Hussong, su
perintendent of the Astoria schools.
"The idea that Hanville was dis

clared in The Oregonian this morning.
is ridiculous." said Mr. Hussong. "He
wrote to MiHH Leta Ashworth without
ever having met her or being encour
aged by her. asking that she name the
day when he could buy her an en
gagement ring. At the time he had a
wife and three children in Tacoma.
Man I leriistent.
"When the board asked him how he
thought he had the right to do such a
thing, he declared that he haa the
right to look after his own affairs as
an American citizen. We allowed him
to go back to his school after he had
promised not to annoy Miss Ashworth
"Within two weeks ho was again
writing her letters and the school board
asked mo to call for his resignation.
He offered it and left town. That is
all there is to it."
Belief is expressed here that Han
ville was demented on one subject at
least. It is declared that he forced his
attentions on many young ladies of the
city, much to their annoyance. At nil
institute he told a woman teacher who
was an utter stranger to him that 1-e
must see her privately 'and alone, it is
said. He bothered stenographers in.
the downtown office, and his career
came to a climax when he addressed
Miss Ashworth after seeing her in the
wicket at the Pacific Light & Power
Girt Never Met Man.
He was never introduced to Miss Ash
worth. never called on her or was al
lowed to talk to her.
"I do not know Mr. Hanville. That
is all I have to say." said Miss Ash
worth at the McEachern shipyard of
fice, where she is employed.
At the time he started annoying Miss
Ashworth she considered it a joke, but
when he sent a second letter she gave
it to her rather.
I wrote Mr. Hanville a gentlemanly
letter asking that he cease his atten
tions to my daughter as they were ob
noxious to her." said M. H. Ashworth,
the girl's father. "I told him that as a
gentleman I would expect to see him
feiop nis annoyance. Then he came to
see me. He was trembling and crying,
and I saw the matter had to be han
dled with gloves, so I took It up with
the school board. There was one more
letter a little later. Then he resigned
and left town. We have never heard
anything of him since."
Hanville Held L'ndeairable.
Alter complaints were made to the
school board Mr. Hussonjr investigated
nanvuie s teaching ability and discov
ered that he was not competent to fill
tne position he held. He paid little at
tcntion to his school work, walked the
streets, let the children play the vic-
iroia at all hours and went to sleen nt
his desk. He would have been dis
charged at any rate without the com
plaints of Miss Ashworth. said C. W.
Halderman of the school board.
Hanville kept under cover as much
as possible when he was in the rltv
Monday, said Superintendent Hussonir.
He was seen in the Weinhard hotel, but
nurried away so as not to be identified.
'Ho was in the hall of my office short
ly before I entered it. but ducked his
head so that 1 did not see who he
was," added Mr. Hussong.
Hanville entered the superintendent's
office and attacked him while he was
sitting down with his back to his as
sailant. Yesterday the Portland police
were requested to hurry the apprehen
sion of the ex-principal, who is said
to live at 600 Hawthorne avenue. After
