-The Silent Call-
Dorothy Phillips, who has the
starring role in Hurricane's Gal,"
now playing at the" Oregon thea
ter, is usually quite ready to
make any sacrifice or put herself
to any inconvenience that is
necessary to the ''success of her
photoplays. But when it came to
bobbing her hair tor Hurricane's
1 Gal she made strenuous- objec
tions. ' For years ?she consistently
refused to part VI th her mass of
dark brown hairv bot when she
found that her roll in the produc
tion would absolutely require her
to part with --her 'tresses 2 she
agreed to submit to the shears.
In "Hurricane (al" Miss Phillips
has the role of a girl of the sea
who rples the smuggling' schooner
bequeathed to her by her father.
Colleen Moore, the dainty little
i actress who is featured in "Affln-
Ities, now at the Liberty, has
called the tune on a new dance.
And she made up the name her
self, too. 7 . ,v ' . . .
This happened recently when
Muis Moore,' with a party of
friends, was seeing the sights &
a JC&w York cabaret. One of the,
party, observed that, a young Jar

When Jane Murfin returned
from' Europe with the remarkable
police dog that was to star in the
H. O. Davis, production, "The Si
lent Call," at the Bligh tdday, she
intended to give Director Lau
rence Trimble, a surprise and re
fused Interviewers all : informa
tion about the dog.
Consequently ? etrongheart was
led Into the studio an absolute
stranger to everybody there. Di
rector Trimble oollared the dog
literally' speaking ana took him
aside. l- " ;
' "Shake hands'" he said in En
-The dog refused to budge.
"Wle heisst dtt?"' (What are
you called?) he asked in German.
The dog sat mutely." '
"Baisez moi (Kiss me) he or
dered In French.. '
The dog leaped from liis haun
ches and his tongue just licked
Mr. Trimble's cheeks as he jump
through the air. ,
''Remarkable i French, dog you
have there," Mr. . Trjmble re
marked to Miss Murfin as he led
Strongheart back. Now Miss Muf
fin's respect for Mr. Trimble's
knowledge of . canines has in
creased considerably. The only
fly In the ointment is that Strong
heart is really a Belgian dog who
acquired hia knowledge of French
because that is. the tongue spoken
in the greater, part of the country.

tion of some meetings in the last

several sessions .that he has been
a member of the .ways and means
committee the press always has
been excluded, i
"Some of the members here are
talking to the press more than to
anyone else, -and I think we ought
to get down to business eaid
This remark aroused the .wrath
of - Senator, Zimmerman.
"Why, we held sessions here
every night for; three jweeks
shouted Zimmerman as be pound-,
ed the table with his fist, "and we
didn't do a darn thing. If we
would get down to work we could
clean up a big grist of these ap
propriations every night." . - 7

:,; Postpones Lovejoy Bill
The Multnomah delegation' in
the house voted to indefinitely
postpone the Lovejoy hill which
would rescind the Portland bridge
bond election results: and aubmit
to the people the question of au
thorizing the construction of tubes
instead of bridges. . :
Lovejoy introduced the bill by
request, but told the delt-gution
yesterday that he , had been con
vinced : that the construction of
tubes is not practical, that It
would be a needless expense and
that the people ' of Multnomah
county, nad". expressed themselves
very clearly on the matter at the.

"THE MERRY WIDOW"
Visitors No Match 'for Local
" Boys .- Second . String
. . Gets Exercise, ,
. Ashland was no match at all
for Salem high school team in the
return gjtme at, the Armory, Tues
day night. The visitor play the
very : hestp they know,, the very
most they can stand, but beyond
them is a vast unknown, unchart
ed sea of endurance and skill that
they haven't been able to even
dream. The score ended 40 to 17
in favor of the locals, with a full
second , team and several .more to
boot, playing just to get exercise
after the game was won beyond
the possibility of losing.
After what the. Ashland team
did down on their home floor, it
was expected that-they'd" hold the
locals down to a reasonable score.
But they have taken at least two
disastrous drubbings since Salem
played them at Ashland, and It
doesn't help young players td be
too badly beaten,' too often Last
night, Salem scored almost at will,
in spite of the most strenuous ef
forts of the .visitors. The first
team sho'uld have run the score
ub close to three figures, playing
at: top speed through the whole
Mfl&L-Of'. the, visitors are young,
new lads,: not up to the slxe 4 or
skill or stamina of the big team, of
last sna.t.f' Marske, forward was
ther .star for" their fiirganizattbn,
with three field goals and two foul
points. He was of last year's
champion team, and is a player of
real ability. Against players like
Reinhart, Okerberg, Patterson,
Brown, Lillegren Marske and his
team mates hadn't a ghost of a
chance, though they fought game
ly to the last whistle.
Coach Roy Bphler of Willamet
te officiated as referee. The crowd
was the largest of the year.
. What will i be the crucial test
for Salem is to come Friday night.
when the team takes on Corvallis
for a home district game. .Cor
vallis thus far has a clean slate
within the district, and is making
such a bid for the championship
that even . Salem will have to be
lucky to nose them out. The loser
of this game will stay at home
from the state tournament, in all
probability, so this is the ; really
big game of the year. . r
