10' TIIE SUNDAY OREGOXIAN, PORTLAND. DECEMBER 31, 1922 LEGION CARNIVAL OF PARIS UNIQUE Abandoned Dogs and Felines Win Happy Homes. SHOW DRAWS BIG CROWD Parisian Cafes and Vaudeville I'rove Big Attractions at Year End Entertainment. Livestock not the kind the boys "knew in France, but an altogether different assortment featured last night's Franco-American jubilee en tertainment at the auditorium. The, farewell entertainment for 1922 was staged by Portland post of the Iagion and Portland volture of La Societe des 40 Homines et 8 Che vaux, and they must have realized a tidy little "nest egg" for the vet erans of the world war, judging by the abandon with which the "franc notes" were thrown about. But the livestock tnere was the keynote. Some versatile veteran conceived the idea that there were too many homeless dogs and cats at the city pound, and that regular folk could be induced to pay for the livestock, to the lasting benefit of the legion, providing they could take a chance. The result was that several trucks were kept busy all day yesterday bringing in an assort ment of dogs and cats ordinary and exceptional to their pens in the basement of the auditorium, whence they were taken, by their lucky new foster-parents at fabu lous prices, and everyone was happy. However, before there is any misunderstanding, let it be said that dogs and cats were by no ' means the entire assortment, for there were pigs and goats, and Dr. Rockey of tlje entertainment com mittee was vexed because there were no cows to give away at pound of flesh the pound of silver prices. Anyhow, something like 10,000 persons enjoyed 'the fast and furi ous fun, and any "froggy" would have been homesick had he aeon his country reproduced. Of course the mute key should be pressed In tell ing of the many refinements of the national crap game that were Intro duced during the evening, but. take it from anyone there, ample oppor- tunity was given to wager, or, in other words, some connivance seemed to exist whereby games of chance ran wide open and then some. Games of Chance Thrive. Out of secret repositories, some of them in the closets' of "best fami- . lies," same assorted paraphernalia to court the goddess luck in the form of roulette wheels, crap tables with all the field and favorites marked, and innumerable paddle wheels.- The old apparatus, now al most forgotten in these days when men take a chance in dark rooms and in secret, added a great deal to the enjoyment of the evening. But away from these American ... "frivols" and to France the danc inS la la, eet was tres jaunte. Somehow everyone who writes of bokoo something or another is be lieved to have plenty of French in his makeup, but in a long period of overseas fighting most of the front- , line troops found that French was napoo and that Anglais seemed to fill the bill if not just aa well, why, a little better. Cafea Are Sensational. But last night we again saw the Cafe Fleur Sucre In all its glory, with the other stellar estaminets along the main drag, including the Oafe des Apaches that proved to be .. a whirlwind once it got into action. Hot dawg! but those mademoiselles could travel a few and they threw it into high. And the soldats Amerl caine did themselves proud. The atmosphere, outside the miss ing of the standard libation of the vin twins rouge and blink was homelike for the overseas men; so much so that many of them hated to leave. The prices for vin rouge, ac cording to the menus, were "pour soldat Francais 2 sous and pour sol dat Americaine 10 francs," which made things nice ail around. . Anyhow, the legion men and their friends and admirers managed to pack the big structure from base ment to dome all night long, and, judging from the sounds of merri ment, all present had enough good time to last all through 1923. Vaudeville Big Feature. Three dancehalls were in opera tion and the main auditorium was used for a premier vaudeville show, in which one of the best local talent bills ever assembled did its level best for the veterans. Fit to be singled out for special ' mention were William Boone, with his masterful military music on the giant organ; la Parisienne Follies ' company, with its typical comedy numbers: Katherine Laidlaw's danc ing girls; the Portland Chamber of Commerce double quartet and the pageant of nations as presented un der the direction of Josephine Dil , Ion. - . . : PULP WOOD CONTRACTED Vicinity of Idaville, Or.

Efforts to find the body of Donald Kirk, 20-year-old youth of St. Paul who was drowned in the Willamette river near that place December 13, have so far availed nothing and as a result the father of the lad, R. E. Kirk of St. Paul, has offered a re ward of $250 for any information which may lead to the recovery of the body. Kirk was drowned while on a hunting trip with three com panions, although none of them was with him at the time he is supposed to have been thrown into the river when the canoe in which he was paddling was overturned in the swollen river waters. Diligent patroling of the river by residents of the districts and search ing parties have so far succeeded in the recovery. of the overturned canoe and the boy's gun, which was, found within 35 feet of the bank in water about 15 feet deep, but no trace of the body has been found. Fearing that the "body' might' havebeen car ried far below where the accident occurred, the father has now offered the reward:- in- hope -that it- may be recovered. Two boats have patroled the river between St. Paul and Ore gon City continuously since the day of the drowning. RATE ORDER DEFENDED Public Service . Commission An swers Telephone Company. The answer of the state public service commission to the plea of the Pacific Telephone & Telegraph company for a permanent injunc tion against the commission in the matter bf rate reduction, was for mally filed in federal court yester day by H.

When the commission, early In November, issued a drastic rate re duction order the telephone company applied to the federal courts for a restraining order, asserting that en forcement of the new rates would AMERICAN LEGION TO VISIT THIS WEEK. practically mean confiscation of the company's property. A temporary order, restraining the commission from putting the rates into effect, was issued, effective until the suit, the answer in which was filed yes terday, is settled. In the answer the commission de nied that it was attempting to con fiscate the company's property or that any political influences were responsible for the November rate reduction order. The commission denied the company's claim that the corporation was managed efficiently or economically and disagreed with the company's attorneys on the proper valuation of telephone prop erty in the city. The "code ringing" system was attacked as obsolete. Several pages of the answer dealt with the company's relations with the American Telephone & Tele graph company and the Western Electric company.
