A corporation to relieve unemploy
ment in Portland may be the result of
a meeting by a voluntary committee of
business men Tuesday afternoon.
Various plans were discussed, but
that which found most favor was a
proposal to organize a company . which
will be represented by a thoroughly
competent manager in locating jobs of
land clearing, wood splitting and road !
repair for men who need work, it may
be found feasible to encourage men to i j
make contracts for splitting cordwood
fl rlrlni7 land, hnldtntr them re- I
sponsible both to the land owner and
the company, the company to advance
enough to meet the cost and to be re
imbursed out of the contract price paid
by the land owner.
ACnst Do Real Work.
But. whatever Is done, it was em
phatically agreed that jobless men for
whom work Is found must be willing to
do good stiff work for not much more
than enough to live on.
Portland is to be made no mecca
for the ldl because business men and
public officials concern themselves for !
their employment, it was insisted. j
The meeting was held in the offices!
of Franklin T. Griffith, president of j
thP Portland Hallway, Light & Power
company. Mr. Griffith presided. Oth
ers present were W. B. Ayer, president!
of the Kastern & Western Lumber 1
company; J. C. Knglish, president of ; 1
the Kotary club; Levi Johnson, mana
get-of the Men's Resort; Hy Kilers of 1 d
Kilers Piano House; Arthur L. Fish, '
business manager of The Journal; W. ' '
L. Brewster, city commissioner of pub- ! l
11c affairs; W. L. Llghtner, county i
commissioner; John P. Carroll, pub
Usher of the Telegram; C. C. Chap
man, publicity manager of the Com-
raercial club. . . ;
Commissioner Brewster said he be-'
lieved splitting cord wood and paying
men by the cord offers the most feas
ible way of relieving unemployment.
Details Arc Given.
The details of the plan for organis
ing a company to relieve unemploy
ment weie given by Mr. Fish.
Commissioner Lightner Said he
doubted if the county could do any-
mjng until arter tne rirst or the year,
as the money for the road fund does
not begin to oome in until that time.
All were agreed that such a shelter
for the unemployed as was afforded
last winter in the Gipsy Smith audi
torium should never be opened again.
J. C. English, Amos Benson and
Levi Johnson were appointed a com
mittee to formulate a definite plan of
When Melvin G. Winstock made the
statement last evening from the stage
of the new National theatre that he
and his associates, although they may
not have reached their highest ideal,
had given to Portland a theatre in
which the entire' citizenship could take
pride, he voiced the sentiment of the
hundreds of guests who assembled for
the private opening.
Mr. Winstock paid high tribute to
the architect, the builders, the artisans
and all those who had given their ser
vices in making the National the cli
max of motion picture building and
equipment In Portland. He said that
the work of the exhibitors in Portland
had been of such high quality as .to
amusement of high class. There is
not a more beautiful theatre in the city
than the new National. . Its color
scheme has been developed in ivory,
buff and Dutch blue. The draperies
and carpets are all in blue with the
seats upholstered in leather of, lighter
blue grey. Splendid discretion has
been used in the decoration and there
is not a discordant note nor too much
Above the proscenium arch is a
beautiful piece o mural painting typi
fying peace and liberty. The ceiling
is centered with a massive indirect
lighting fixture suspended from the
center of a great circle of exquisite
mural work. The stage is large
enough to accommodate a small dra
matic performance, and last evening
it was given a magnificent setting.
An innovation that met with great
favor is the promenade that extends
from Park to West Park on the bal
cony floor. It is beautifully furnished,
as are the men's smoking rooms and
the women's rest rooms. In the wom
en's room a maid is in attendance.
Playground Great Innovation.
Perhaps the greatest innovation of
all. is the children's playground in
the basement, where two maids are
in charge, and mothers are invited to
leave their kiddies while attending a
mi-ta ..At fascinating Juvenile attrac
tions are there to amuse the little
people, who gave the playground a
thorough initiation last evening.
There are three distinct ventilating
systems so that the air in every por
tion of the theatre 1 kept- constantly
pure. There are more exits man uie
law requires. The floral decorations
for the opening are exceptionally
beautiful. The balconies, on , either
side of the proscenium arch, are
banked with yellow chrysanthemums
and flaming autumn leaves and great
vases and baskets of yellow or mauve
chrysanthemums were in the foyer,
in the. promenade, on either side of
the stage and. in fact, every place
where they could be used to advantage.
"America" Featnre of Program.
The feature of the opening program
is a film Version of the New
York Hippodrome's monster spectacle,
"America." It is so big that it is dif
ficult to realise that a stage spectacle
and not an outdoor scene is Deing
viewed. Automobiles whia by, troops
of horses gallop on and off, the fire
department rushes on and the immense
Hippodrome chorus looks like a small
army. The climax of the picture is
toward the close in the court of honor
where the chorus girls do their famous
submarine walk and vanish under wa
ter to remain there until they are al
most forgotten when they bob up to
sing the finale. A capital Vitagraph
comedy is "The Peacemaker" with Nor
ma Talmadge and other of the big V.
The first number on the program
was music by the seven piece orchestra.
Dr. R. M. Emerson followed with vocal
selections and met with an ovation.
The National trio of male singers also
scored heavily. The remaining vocal
attraction was the solos of Miss Eva
Da Turns. The attendance was so
great that . It was necessary to give
two performances In order to accom
modate the guests. The theatre will
be formally opened and dedicated to
the public this evening.
