Much interest was shown: in the
legion picnic held July 20 on the
Abiqua grounds near Silverton.
The picnic was under the auspices
of the Delbert Reeves post No. 7
and was attended by many from
towns of Polk and Marion coun
ties. It is i reported that many
more would have been present had
it not been ! that it is vacation
time now. The Oregon City and

the main sports. A $50 diamond

an elaborate program or to hold
speeches as the affair was plan

picnic, and reports
from those who were there indi

Lewis Stone Comments
j On "The Stranger
"Any one could do ; H after
twenty-five .years, practice, said
Lewis Stone recently when ques
tioned about his remarkable suc
cess as one of the screen's1 leading
character actors In heavy rolea, his
characterization of Keith Darrant
in "The Stranger," in -particular.
Lewis Stone made his profes
sional debut in 1900 after serving
as sergeant 'in the Spanish-American
War, his first role on the stage
being that of a "heavy" in a com
edy with music- called "Side
tracked." His first appearance" in
New York City was in "The Great
White Diamond." i
Closing an engagement in "The
Brat" in 1H17, his first picture
was "Held by the Enemy" for
Paramount, Then he played lead
ing roles In "Rlver'jj End," "Pris
oner of Zenda.', "Trifling Worn
en." "You Can't Fool Your Wife
and "Scaramouche." tH
But to come back, it is true that
a person might possibly rise; to
such great heights as,, has Lewis
Stone during hia. rather -lengthy
career, but what about; their sue
cess while they are striving for
such honors? It is not as though
Mr. Stone had just sprung into
public-. favor, for he has been a
leading screen personality for
many years. " I

I "A kiss is the very life of a

"A kiss is a part of a mother's
reward for her untiring effort."
"A kiss is labelled a crime in

ers." , ' ;
'"To a sailor a kiss is merely a
fleeting memory.
