Girl Who Sings "Oh Promise Me" in Robin Hood at Heilig Spent Happy

it happened. The Baxter was pre

Elizabeth they bestowed on me at
Miss Baxter, along with the rest of
the Robin Hood company. Is still re

two engines to our train and one of
them slid right Into the creek and
the other engine reared right up on
its hind wheels like a horse about
to leap over the bank. It was raining
to add to our happiness and we were
all shaken out of our senses and. our
berths. No lives were lost, the men
on the engines having forethought

Bertram, ex-motorcycle dispatch rider
with the 83d division American ex
pedition force, collided with an auto
mobile In Portland July 8, 1919, the
day after he purchased a new motor
cycle on discharge from service. In
his attempt to collect $2o00 damages
from Stephen Parker, autoist, the jury
found for the defense in the court of
Circuit Judge McCourt yesterday, after
hearing evidence tending to show that
the reckless speed demanded In the
war zone was not entirely forgotten
n the peace-time riding of the plain
tiff. The accident occurred at Albina
and Alberta streets.

GIRL SHOW IS
AXATOL. FRIEDLAXD TO BE AT
Composer ot 100 0 Popular Melo
dies Surrounded by Galaxy
A cirl show assembled by Anatol
Friodland, composer of 1000 popular
melodies, who himself is the head
liner of the bill, le the attraction to
be offered by the Orpheum at the
Heilig theater for three nlght3 and
four matinees starting tomorrow aft
ernoon. This show will close Its Port
land engagement with the afternoon
performance next Wednesday.
"Anatol Friedland himself," wrote
a Seattle newspaper reviewer, "would
be worthy of the headline position on
any Orpheum circuit bill because of
the interest that attaches to the per
sonality of the man who claims au
thorship of 1000 melodies, many of
them whistled the world over.
"But when Mr. Friedland comes to
us surrounded by youth and beauty to
interpret his compositions and him
self sits at the piano to vitalize them
the result is bound to be effective.
When the Friedland girls change cos
tume, which is about every five min
utes during a 30-minuto act. the tired
business man sits up and takes notice
and the women in the audience gasp
often at the dazzling raiment worn.
The men gasp at. least once, perhaps
for a different reason."
Mr. Friedland Is supported by Neil
Mack, musical director-tenor; Sonia
de Calva, prima donna; Lucille Bal
lantine, specialty dan car; Vera Vel
mar, violinist, and by six girls, all of
whom are described as beauties.
Comedy prevails In' the six other
acts that comprise the Anatol Fried
land show. To date this show is said
to have broken all records for the
early Orpheum season.

PARK SITE FLAN MAY GO
AUTO PROJECT FOB ALAMEDA
MAT BE ABANDONED.
Commissioner Pier Declares Resi
dents Should Have Filed Pe
titions in His Office.
The plan of establishing an auto
mobile park site in the Alameda dis
trict probably will be abandoned, ac
cording to City Commissioner Fter, in
charge of the park bureau. Mr. Pier
said yesterday that he had assured
residents of the district that he would
make no move toward the establish
ment of the park without first serv
ing notice upon them.
"Although I knew that petitions
were in circulation, I had seen none
and knew nothing about it until I
read of it in the newspapers. The
petitions should have been filed in
my department, especially in view of
the fact that I had conferred with
residents of the district and was
thinking of making no move until I
had talked with them further.
"However, the entire plan will be
held in abeyance until I have time
to iook into the subject more thor
oughly." Residents of the- Alameda district
are now launching a movement to
urge Commissioner Pier to recom
mend, the proposed automobile camp
site for a playground and park. The
residents of the district declare that
the children of the district must
travel more than one mile to the
nearest, playground and' the growing
population of the district should en
title them to a playground.
