T. K RISTEIGEN,
fectlon. There Is no criticism in
he world equaWto that of a man
who himself has lived In reality
the thing he sees enacted on the
screen.'7 ' 1 -- f
Yet this vat ' accomplished by
Harry Pollard in his direction of
Trifling With Honor," the Uni-versal-Jewel
photodrama which is
now being shown at the Liberty
theater. When Mike Donlin, one
of the greatest : hitters that ever
lifted a bat, walked . out of one
of the projection rooms at Uni
versal CItyi where he had seen a
pre-view of ' the-- pieturer blinked
at the sun and said: "That's
great. There's a; thrill In it even
for an old has-been; like me."
Donlin has quit professional
baseball, but the- followers of the
game. win recall that back in the
days between 1905 and:, 1909 he
was one of the sensations of the
major leagues For years he was
the crack outfielder .of 'John Mc
Graw's New York: Giants, and his
batting average-always topped the
.300-mark, whicir lir-those days
was not only exceptional but rare.
1 Donlin wrote a-personal letter
to CarlTlaemmle; president of the
Universal Pictures Corporation en
thusiastically, praising? the base
ball sequences- and." commending
highly the picture as a whole.
Rockliffo Fellowes,- one of the
best known actors: In the screen
world, plays the part of the base
ball hero - in - this- production. ; It
is interesting to note that Fellowes
was one. of? the-, famous college
baseball stars of the country dur
ing his nndergradnate days. Play
ing oposite" Fellowes" is Fritri
Rldgeway. one; of the most tal
ented actresses on the screen. She

picture, ''The Whit Rose,' a-
' United Artists release' coming to
night to the Oregon theater, and
then went to Miami? Fla., where
he finished the picture.- Mr. Grif
fiths had- with him Mae Marsh,
Carol Dempster, Ivor Novello,
Neil Hamilton, Lucille La Verne,
Porter Strong and other players.
The-White Rose" Is a typical
story of the old South,- and " it
was , with no little difficulty that
the' f producer was! able- to - find
scenes suited to It. The South
has 'been falrly-;well consumed In
the march of -progress and'' for' a
time it" looked as if the foremost
director would not secure the pas-1
toral backgrounds he sought. The
love- of ' the 'people of the Teche
country- to preserve and maintain
old ; traditions In life and archi
tecture was of great benefit to
Mr.1 Griffith who found in west
enr Louisiana the sort of settings
he was in need of.' There are to
be found' homes' which have stood
unmolested 'by the touch of 'mod
ernism for-100 years.-' In many
ofvthe hamlets' and' towns along
the Bayou Teche and 'where Mr.
Griffith covered a range of 80
mile.' only French Is . heard. Lit
tle English is spoken- in many of
these places.' j h
The descendants of . the old. Aca
dians who. settled in . the Teche
country . when driven out of Nova
Scotia by the British in -1755, are
keen about continuing in the ways
of t thoir, : forefathers" and?, they
