Abandoned Dogs and Felines
Win Happy Homes.
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
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
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

St. Paul Residents Patrol Willam
ette for Donald Kirk.
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.
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. M. Esterly, attorney-examiner
for the commission, It was
outlined in detail in The Oregonian
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
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.

WASHINGTON. Patents have been

lamp produces a vapor from the oil
which makes a blue flame that in
