Play Fairly Good as Satire,
and Very Good Just
As Entertainment
Kolb and Dill, with their perfor
mance entitled "Now and Then"
are without doubt working two
shifts. The production is appar
ently anti-prohibition propaganda,
put over in the form of reasonably
elever satire and, with most of the
players, very clever acting.
The play seems to be an at
tempt to discredit prohibition and
generate sentiment in favor of
some form of letting down the
bar? to legalized liquor traffic.
; But regardless of the spectator's
sentiments on the wet and dry is
sue, the production is a good eve
ning's entertainment. It was not
as snappy, some were heard to say
as the Kolb and Dill production
of last year, and the orchestra did
not receive the praise that it has
In the vast. It goes without say
ing that Kolh and Dill themselves
lived np to their reputation asj
among meaoremost or American
comedians. A first class actor Is
John Fee who "played the part of
"Bum" or J. Pitney Brown, who
was "all wet." May Cloy as Katie
Wagner did a first rate part in
the role of daughter and sweet
heart, and so did Julia Blanc as
Fritzie Wagner, the "middle-aged
flapper." . i
The big shows have "come
back" In Salem. There will be no
more half or third capacity hous
es, for a time at least, with thoh
theater management bringing in
talent of the class seen with the
Kolb and Dill company last night.
The expense Incurred in bring
ing the big shows to Salem should
in turn bring a big patronage.

John M. Stahl has woven many
dramatic elements with masterly
skill in the production of 'One
Clear Call," which will be the
feature at the Liberty theater
next -week. Behind the spectacu
lar incidents is a story of grip

pathetic heart appeal that has
been equalled only by the tra

"The Music Master" or "Uncle

David Belasco's production of
Avery Hopwood's famous comedy,
"The Gold Diggers," will be seen

goers of thla city have not had
opportunity heretofore to witness
this delightful product of Mr.
Hopwood's wit and Mr. Belasco's
stagecraft The production i&
said to be characteristic of both
of these geniuses of the theater
at their best, and the company,
which is headed by Gertrude Van

the first rank. The organization

December 12
Tuesday night's meeting of the

up as ' exactly nothing" by mem
bers of the board, after the meet
ing closed. It was as calm as a
cow chewing her cud at the close
of a perfect summer day. after
the flies have gone to roost.
And still it was a real meeting.
The official report of the portable
school building at the Washing
ton sohool last night showed that
the district had saved $175 cash
by re jet-tins the advertised bids
for construction and building the
structure by day labor.
The board voted to have Super
intendent George Hug check up
on student activities. The board
favors giving the students much
responsibility, but also would see
tliat they have any nefded offic
ial assistance. It was shown
that many other sctiools have fac
