tate senate and later a member of
the city commission, yesterday filed
rominating petitions for mayor with

ins, who is now a candidate for city
commissioner, antf who served for a
Fhort term which covered the period

the verdict of the voters on this oc
casion and used various methods, in
cluding a suit in the courts which
proved" unsuccessful in an effort to
hold his seat on the city commission.
For more than two months he at
tended all meetings of the city coun.
cil with Dr. Perkins and the votes
of both men were recorded on all

GEORGE WALSH works eo fast In
"Sink or Swim," the ' production
which will open today at the
Peoples theater, that eeveral titled
conspirators never eeem to be able
to get their plots against a princess
well under way.
"Sink or Swim" Is said to be a
whirlwind play, and Walsh, according
to pre-viewers, keeps the action going
so fast that before his big audiences
were finished laughing at one incident
they were howling at another. Walsh,
as Dick Mason, is the son of a rich
mar. and therefore shuns work; but
bis father believes if he sends Dick to
Europe to take care of a cattle con
cession the youngster will come back
a "regular" man.
Well, George does come back a reg
ular man and in addition a married
one; for he finds a princess in dis
tress. Madge Kennedy's latest picture,
which will follow "Sink or Swim,",
coming to the Peoples theater on
Wednesday, is "Dollars and Sense," a
screen version of the Saturday Eve

In spite of the fact that construc

gradually decrease in his opinion, Mr.
Upham declared that building at thl

because of the tremendous shortage
of houses. Regarding real estate
activity the speaker said:
'Real estate activity has tempo
rarily been retarded by restriction of
bank credit and the reluctance of
people to believe in continued high
building costs. Both influences will
gradually disappear. Already the
signs indicate real estate activity in
our cities. Investigation shows that
there has been a substantial ad

of our cities and very sharp advances
In houses. In about 10 per cent of
our cities an advance has already
occurred in vacant residence lots.
The public is beginning to realize
that for seven years real estate has
