ALL ; wayfarers . will seek The
Road to Happiness," which leads
to the Heilig Theater this week,
Twhere we will find William Hodge,
with his rare smile, droll humor, soft,
drawling, voice and fine personality.
, Of the truly rural kind is "The Koad
to Happiness." Its story, laid In New
York State, ambles alone quietly with
a, delightfully clean,' wholesome plot.
touched with the joys and jealousies of
the small village and with occasional
melodramatic outbursts." "
William . Hodge.- In the Sol Smith
Russell role he plays in this homely
eort of "Shore Acres" drama, preaches
the great truth of contentment. Reviewers-
and other folk who have seen
the play say that it leaves a feeling of
marvelous .and honest sausiacuon.
The engagement begins tomorrow
night and the only matinee is on Satur
day, July 4th.
Mr. Hodge was last here in "The Man
Prom Home." a role he originated in
New York, but which was first brought
to Portland by Henry Hall.
'After- "The Road to Happiness" there
comes another week of motion pictures,
'The Spoilers," Rex Beach's famous
Story done over Jn picture form.
On August 2d "Omar, the Tent
maker," is due.
"Damaged Goods" isn't .coming this
Bummer season, but is booked for
Portland next Fall. It closed last week
In San Francisco. Richard Bennett
surely needs a vacation. He has been
playing steadily In "Damaged Goods"
ever since its production in New York.
An event bound to excite Interest,
discussion and notes of comparison is
the appearance of Liane Carrera as the
Orpheum's headliner. Liane, who is
beautiful and vivacious, is Anna Hold's
only daughter, only child, for -that
matter. She is just 18 years old, Liane,
not Anna, and until a few months ago
was in a French convent learning to
embroider and play the piano. .Then
she grabbed a booking just as soon as
she had graduated, jumped Into New
York and made a great bit. She ap
pears with .a company of dancers and
Gilbert and Sullivan's famous old
opera, "The Mikado," -has been con-,
densed into tabloid form and will top

a. "special added attraction" In Alia
Zandoff, a violinist discovered by Mrs.
Alexander Pantages. Alia Zandoff
sounds as If Alia might have taken
lier, or his, maybe name from his, or
herpatron saint's name, Alexander.
Eh? ' -

HODGE AT HEILIG TOMORROW
Actor Appears in "The Road to Hap
; piness" Hero AUIVeek.
William Hodge will bring the great
est success of his career to the Heilig
theater. Eleventh and Morrison streets,
tomorrow night for six nights with a
special-priced matinee Saturday, July
4, when he will be seen in "The Road
to Happiness." in which he has just fin
ished a twenty-two weeks' engagement
It. the Garrick and Princess theaters,
Chisago, said to be the longest ,and
most successful engagement for any
play produced there this season.
In his new play Mr. Hodge acts a
young country boy, who makes a liv
ing for himself and invalid mother by
doing odd jobs about the small town
in which he lives, while his nights he
passes in the study of law under the
tutorshin of an old country judge. So
well does the boy progress In his stu
dies that he is shown at the end of the
(play, just a year after the- first act,
a successful young attorney, much of
the same type as Daniel Vorhees Plk
in "The Man from Home."
Chief among the characters In the
play is a crabbed village storekeeper.
who. because of his wealth and posi
tion, seeks to order to his own mea-
sure the affairs of not only his own
family, but of ' the other villagers as
well. He attempts, by an unjust ac
cusatlon, to belittle In the eyes of his
neighbors, and especially the village
banker, his stepdaughter, his main
reason for so doing is that he may
brine- about a marriage for his daugh
ter to the banker, who is really in love
with the stepdaughter. Only one per
son in the entire community dares to
dfv him. and that Is the young law
student. The old man is unsuccessful
In his attempt.
All of the characters introduced are
of the type familiar In any of the
semi-rural communities of our coun
try. Supporting Mr. Hodge are Misses
Reeva. Greenwood. Gertrude Hits, Ma
rion Brust. Marie Haynes, and George
Lund, Adin B. Wilson, Taylor Carroll,
e. L. .Evans ana nowsra .morgan.

Liana Carrera, the handsome young
woman who headlines the Orpheum

day, is the daughter of Anna Held, but
in the very brief period ofkher stage
experience she has proved a clear title
to fame all on her own account. Mile.
Carrera is just 18 years old. and up to
a few months ago was still at school
in France. Now, however, she has
