It was two weeks ago at the Colum

of Portland in one of the boxes.
Just by way of diversion, Mr.
Hitchcock first informed the large
audience that the heavy gentleman
garbed in full dress in the lower left
hand box was the mayor of Portland
and then proceeded to introduce, at
long range, the mayor to army and
naval officials who were in the
theater. Following this introduction,
Mr. Hitchcock continued to amuse the

When Buying a Piano
Good Quality Is
Most people buy a Piano once in a lifetime. They start
out to buy where they can "do the best" (as they think),
not where they can "get the best" (as they should). The
attribute "best" to many usually means the lowest price.
Now pianos, like everything else in this world, are
priced according to their intrinsic worth. They cannot
be made to sell (and endure) at the prices which some
unscrupulous dealers offer them. The "cheap prices"
are for "cheap pianos" beware of them, because the
instruments soon give out, sound tinny, become un
playable and you have to buy another new Piano.
Why not buy a good piano in the first place? It will
be real economy to consider quality as well as price. A
good dealer carries several grades of Pianos when
measured by price. You may not be able to afford the
most expensive but you will be able to buy accord
ing to your purse the buying will be made easy by
convenient term payments and what you buy will have
Quality will give service will cause you no regrets.

Tomorrow Mr. Hitchcock opens a
three day engagement at the Hellig.
The mayor has" addressed a letter
to Mr. Hitchcock, containing a letter
of introduction to Chief of Police
Jenkins, to be used, as the mayor
puts it, "in the event that you are
apprehended out after hours."
But the mayor has given consider
able thought to pulling something on
Mr. Hitchcock which will sort of re
pay the comedian for the fun that he
gained through "kidding" Portland's
mayor in San Francisco. Mayor
Baker refuses to divulge his plan,
although he admits that he is plan
ning on seeing "Hitchy-Koo" again
and will try and even things up when
he does go.
