ence responded to tha decisive hit of
ihe evening with applause which fairly
rumbled from .wall to wall 'and gave
proportionate approval to those of the
irtists whose offerings did not stir them
juito so much. . - ,
i Drawn bv the promise of a musical
program by Rosebrook's orchestra, be
ginning at 8 o'clock. Ihe audience was
seated early. Young women who are
ictlvely engaged in newspaper work, or

behalf of the organization to the pa
ti ws and to those who had contributed
their services to the - program.
The amusement features were
launched toy Naomi Ethardo, European
equilibrist, on the Pantages 'bill this
week, who presented some remarkable
contortionlstio and balancing feats. She
was followed y "Jimmy" Do Veaux,

that he had ably trained his feet, while
improving his mind. '

tation and were recalled several times.

The usual enthusiastic welcome waa
.'riven to Mra. 'Rose Uloch-Bauer, who
Hang as her first number, "You, Dear

with the charm and voice always to be
found in the vocalist's presentations.
Rube Dickinson, who creates a dis
tinct class for himself with his rural
monologue, 1 won 1 his place on the pro
' gram with his opening words. The au
dience could not tire of his quaint man
ner and humor and he was forced to de
cline to return to the footlights because
of the length Of the program.

Miss Alice Lloyd, the Orpheum head-j
liner, graceful, piquant and with a voice i
that rivals the clear , tone of a silver j
bell. . presented'-, a'i number of costume
changes with songs in keeping and only
succeeded in creating in the audience
desire for more. Her "hobble skirt"
song and "Splash Me. ' were perhaps
best liked, although the nttle English

Miss Grape Cameron, starring in

to start the reverberations with the ap

Somewhere in a dark corner of the
Press -club ' quarters, s a little band not
of, mercyhatched - a "surprise,", which
they launched under the guise f fA
Crying Need,'' drawing sobs of hope
that the author might reform,: Most of
the members who mads their local stage
debut declare they had "done things" in
days of college theatricals and aver that
tha man who concocted the alleged skit
waa , entirely . responsible for the de
struction of their Portland hopes. The
conclusion thejf desire to have made is
that the talent was there, but that it
was .distorted ., beyond precognition
through misdirected efforts. ;
The Orpheus chorus, under the direc
tion of Professor W. H. Boyer, ' con
cluded' the evening "with a splendid
blending of some of the most able male
voices in the City and as a final num
