v wmwu w -wwo uHHwi
Despite the promised .rain, and
the really occasional drops that
began to fall before tho service
was over, last night's attendance
at the tabernacle .was between
2500 and. 2800 people, it Iwas
much the largest attendance of all
week-day nights since the ' series
began. It would have filled the
armory to overflowing.:' ' . . ' '
"The Elder Brother" got what
was coming to him last night. He
is the sneering, " self-righteous,
Pharisaic grabber" who : stayed at
home, not for love ot his father,.
but for what he could get out of
his father's, property. Mrs. Dem
arest pictured- him , standing by
while the younger prodigal drove
off with; his share of the family
estate, the sheep and the oxen and
the blooded horses and the bags of
gold, and be said -with o hard
smile, "Go it, kid; I hope yon
never cone back. Go straight to
hell there'll be so much more
left for me after you're gone." It
wasn't a , nice picture that the
hypocritical stay-at-home, the self
confessed moral miracle and the
scowling, ' never-smiling grabber
for gain had "painted of himself.
Mrs. Demarest is a. wonderful
riainter ; of portrait;: they stand
out like real people; they scream
deris'vely. they strut and swag-

thievish, rat; they . draw their
robes of self-righteousness around
them like the "best society' of any
town. They are intensely, real
and convincing, and they are so
much like the people in our street!
Some of them look shamefully like
our very selves; shamefully, and
not goo to look at. But some
of the speaker's characters are al'
together lovely. The faithful and

Sunday Services in Tafaer-
nacle D r aw RecCrd
Fully 9000 people attended the
two services at the new tabernacle
on Willamette campus Sunday aft
ernoon and evening. The really
big . crowd was In the afternoon,
the dedicatory service, when ; the
Cherrian band gave Its first public
concert for the year. Hundred"-
were turned' away without evei.
standing room for this service
there was practically not a vacan
seat at night, but few were re
quired to stand. ' .
The tabernacle-itself is won-
werful structure, considered as , a
civic movement- rather , than an
architectural triumph. It was es
timated to cost 82200, but theflg-
ores -were far too high. .The
army of volunteer workmen who
swarmed ' all over the , structure
and offered their eager assistance
cut the total cost to only f 1700,
Part of this was provided for by
nrivate subscription. As soon as
this and the other necessary cam
paign bills can be cared for there
will be no more dally collections.
There Is only about 1200 yet re
quired to care for all. these bills.
The lvingot between $2,000 and
$3,000 of labor, much of It by
skilled workers who quit their
other lobs and nay in order to
serve, has cut the cost of the cam
paign very greatly. ,
Stoves are supplied In the taber
nacle so that the place can be kept
comfortable. Whle It is not an
elaborate heating system, It will
adequately care for the weather
to be' expected at this season of
the year. " v- ,. ;
There are to be no noon meet
ings at the : Oregon theater this
week, though the " series for the
first two weeks attracted many
thousands of people, and were
growing In interest. The harder
and 'more intensive evangelistic
work at the permanent tabernacle
will take the place of thes.noon
meetings. Frayerj services : xor
consecrated workers are to be held
ah momlnar at 10 o'clock, and
the two leagues ot wbrkers, for
men and women, will have early
evening sessions. : The days prom
ise to be full to the last minute
during the rest of the campaign.
Sunday's band concert was high
ly appreciated by the vast crowd ot
the tabernacle. It is the first
time in a long, long while that the
whole crowd has been 5 privileged
to hear such a concert, with every
body seated In comfort. The band
gave six numbers, all of which
were well received. The medley
of Stephen Foster songs, the famil
