The club quartet entertained with
music. Mrs. George Trott is pres
ident of the club and presided
during the evening.
That there is always available
somewhere, something that can be
dressed into a' highly successful
photoplay was conclusively proven
yesterday at the initial showing
of "The Meanest Man in the
World" at the Oregon theater with
llert Lytell in the title rolo. Ad
apted from the stage success in
which George M. Cohan starred
for a year in New York, the screen
production is, to say the least.
an unusual achievement in that it
loses nothing of the flavor which
made it one of the greatest plays
of the decade. .
Apparently an ideal combin
ation was effected betveen the
players, director, scenario editors
and editing staff, for the finished
production certainly has a spon
taneity about it which would seem
possible in no other way. The'
acting isexcellent and all the play
ers are ideally suited to their roles
and in addition, much humor is
added by the titles, which are easy
natural and totally unrestrained in
The star rolo is played by Bert
Lytell, who is so tender-hearted
as an attorney that he has never
made a success. Resolved to be
the meanest man in the world, he
proceeds to evict one J- Hudson
from her farm. 'The "J" turns
out to be Jane, however and young
and pretty. Then the lawyer
learns that his employers want to
foreclose the mortgage on the
farm because they feel certain
there is oil on the property. A
race against time begins, to raise
money to sink a well, for Jane.
With but five minutes to go, the
well gushes in and saves Jane's
land but not her heart, for our
lawyer wins that.
Theater-goers and particularly
admirers of Mary Pick ford are go
ing to get a real surprise when
"Rosita" opens at the Oregon
theater Saturday, for it is a new
Mary that stars in this production
not the child that has become
"America's Sweetheart" but a
The fact is that Mary Pickford
has grown up in "Rosita"
While she has always shrunk
from this thought, the shrinking
was not due to vanity, but to an
almost puritanical aversion to re
vealing a grown woman's feelings
In "Rosita," Mary Pickford en
ters into her richtful heritage of
glorious vital, alluring woman
hood in her histronic career, and
while the grown-up Mary Pick
ford quickly will become the idol
of men picture fans, she will not
lose any of her tremendous fol
lowing of women and children;
her standing will be greatly en
hanced by this temporary depart
ure from little girl roles.
Students Expected Home
Salem students who have been
attending the University of Oregon
are coming home for the annual
spring vacation period. Trains
northbound yesterday carried a
number of students who were on
their way home in Portland.
Those who are attending OAC will
begin eoming home today, the final
examinations at both institutions
having been held this week. The
two schools generally have their
vacations a week apart.

Homer Smith Tells Kiwanis
Club About Plans for
Promising progress and pleading
for patience, Homer Smith, chair
man of the park board, outlined
what was being done or what
would be done if time were given,
to Improving the automobile
camp ground, in a short talk to
the Salem Kiwanis club at its
''There has been more or less
criticism regarding the camp
grounds," Mr. Smith said. "The
park board is laboring under
many handicaps. Permanent im
provements are difficult on ac
count of the 10 feet of water which
often covers the grounds in the
winter. This can be remedied by
cleaning out the ditch that runs
through the grounds, but it would 1
cost hundreds of dollars. The en
trances are not easy to locate at
present, and there 13 no direct en
trance from the highways. It is
possible an approach will be made
at the end of the Bush bridge."
Mr. Smith said that there was
$S00 left over last year and tflat
this was in the hands of the city
council. The park board has spent
some of this for six new tent
houses which are now nearly com
pleted, ging 10 tent houses in all.
Grounds a:fj being leveled as fast
as one team and a few men can
be spared by Walter Low, street
commissioner, and without any
expense. Several additional show
ers and other fixtures are also b"
ing installed in the wash house
and bath house. All that is need
ed is a little more patience and
time, Mr. Smith said in closing.
Two gold stars shining today
where there should be but one,
representing the price paid by the
nation to pre-war pacificism, said
Adjutant General George A. White
in speaking upon "National De
fense" at the Kiwanis club lunch
"Pacificism was well-meant but
ill-timed" declared General White.
"As a result there were two or
three lives sacrificed where one
should have sufficed and $8 or
$10 spent where there should have
been but a single dollar, and 4,
800,000 of the country's finest
specimens of young manhood tak
en from a productive occupation
and school and hurled into the
war. We pride ourselves with the
account they gave overseas but
there was nothing wonderful. They
won because of their courage in
spite of the fact that they were
matched against soldiers trained
by years of conflict and military
schooling. The blood of the men
who offered their lives rests upon.
the hands of these pacificists."
General White told the plan of
national defense, with the reserve
officers, national smart! and cit
izens' training camps which are
AND FRIDAY ONLY
maintained, in readiness of any
emergency; that might rise. The
first two are 4 to hold the: enemy
In check until mobilization of
those trained at leisure' could be
completed. The United States
dare not go faster than other na
tions and is not able to lay down
its arms as the . pacifist desires,
General White said. While large
armies lead to militarism, it is
necessary to maintain a suitable
army to police territories and pre
vent one race from overrunning
"Chaos today is due to the pa
cifist," General White said. "The
white race is the most involved
and we on the Pacific coast stand
as the western outpost of modern
civilization. We can see hundreds
of millions of black eyes across the
Pacific ocean which see with a
different civilization and moral
code. Wrhen they will awaken is
not known. It was the ancestors
of these same peoples who invent
ed gun powder, employed cavalry
and developed military manouvers
long before the rest of the world
did. If peace is to be maintained
it will be because we stand ready
to defend with our lives the heri
tage of white civilization handed
down through the ages," General
White said in closing. "We must
have some measures of defense
and not blindly lay down arms in
the simple belief of the pacifist."
