BY LEONE CASS BAER.
HIS is old-home week for the
Gleasons, James, who is really
Immy ; Lucile Webster, who is
Mrs. James Gleason, and Russell,
their young son, who isn't cailed Rus-
but Bud Gleason.
Bud wants to be an actor, and by
every law of heredity he should be
one, for both his parents have been
of the theatrical world and his grand
father and grandmother Gleason be
fore them. Grandma Gleason is the
beloved and always charming Mina
Crolius Gleason. Just now she is
playing a big role in the New York
production of "Five o'clock," the new
comedy which Frank Bacon and his
daughter, Bessie. Bacon, helped write.
Jimmy Gleason has been in Broad
way productions, the thespians' mec
ca, on several occasions since he was
last among us. We were discussing
his role as Mr. Prince in "A Prince
There Was," and Jimmy ventured
that "when Bobby Burns twanged his
lyre for 'some power the giftie gie
us, to see our self s as ithers see us,'
in the language of the unregenerate,
lie sure 'said something
"Art," went on Jimmy, who chats
easily and affably, "Art has been de
fined by Webster as 'skill in accom
plishing a concrete purpose." It isn't
alone that; it is also a taskmaster
who demands assiduous application of
his subjects, and no one realizes this
more clearly than actor folk.
"Constant study and practice are
cf course essentials of a successful
career before the footlights, and yet
through the very fact that an actor Is
, successful and is able to secure con
tinued employment he is simultane
ously cut off from one of the really
valuable methods of advancing his
art, in that he is never able to see
his colleagues of the drama play their
parts. He can never study them in
their native haunts, profiting by their
mistakes or virtues in a part.
Someone has suggested as a solu
tion to the problem a series of pro
fessional mati nees, say one matinee
each season. This arrangement would
work no especial hardship on the actor,
as he would be giving only one extra
performance during the run of his
production and it would at the same
time give him the benefit of observa
tion of his fellow-craftsmen at work.
I'd dearly love to run in and watch
the Baker Players. I used to be one
of them back in '07, 08 and 09, and
naturally I know nearly all the prea-

Public Service Hearing Peids Re-
V
suits of Proposed Bond Ejec
tion in District.
Counsel for the Central Oregon
Irrigation company, which has Deen
engaged In the irrigation business
in central Oregon lor tne p
years, has made application to the
public service commission for a date
on which the hearing will be held for
the Duroose of taking testimony con
cerning an increase of maintenance
rate, which the company is seeking,
and which will more than double the
present fee paid by the settlers. !
The matter has Deen penaing oe-
fore the commission for some time. .
The new rate would permit the com
pany to pay the actual expense of ;
operation and also to maice a net re- :
turn on the bond issue and other in- j
cumbrances now upon the property ;
of the company.
An election has been called ror next
Tuesday by the settlers to vote a
bond issue by which they expect to
take over the control of the system
and thereby receive the right to fix
rate which will only represent the
actual cost of operation, and if this
accomplished, the application of
the company for the new rate will
have to be suspended.
ent members. I'd like for them to see
our play. But we are all working
at the same time. About the only
times I get to see some one else play
is between seasons or in vaude
ville."
Jimmy Gleason has a host of
friends in Portland, friends made in
the. happy days when with his
father, the late "William Gleason
his mother and his wife, he played
here. Later when Russell arrived the
whole family appeared in several
plays, the first of these being "The
Heir to the Hoorah." when baby
Russell was carried on and put to
sleep in the cradle.
Russell says he is going to be an
actor, too. His mother, who is
wholesome, thoroughly fascinating

than 300 eggs each. The best hen
laid 330 and the next two 323 each.
The remarkable thing about these
hens is that they are all descendants
of a family of egg layers which star
tled the poultry world five years ago
by producing Lady McDuff at the
Oregon Agricultural college, the first
hen In the world to lay in trapnests
300 eggs or more in a year, her record
being 303.
Since then there have been a few
other hens that have exceeded this
number, but none approaching these
new records at the state hospital.
Oregon now has more hens with
trapnest records of 300 up or more
than all the states combined. These
dozen hens were part of a flock of
430 pullets.
