from' his studio carries, v has out
stripped ' his own record with
Those Who Dance." his latest
production, now running at the
Oregon theater. J
With a theme which no - pro
ducer has yet attempted (for
he has told the story, of liquor
with no moral garnisnings), he
has found opportunity for some
of . the ; most tellingly dramatic
situations ever filmed. f
One of the big thrillers of the
production is the fight between a
group of h'-Jackers and the crew
of a rum-runner. The pirates and
smugglers of olden days were no
more picturesque than the smug
glers of "contraband liquor .' of the
pnesent day. And when dog be
gins to fight dog, S3 the-hl-jacker
fights the bootlegger, both , ; of
them being': without the pale of
the law, blood begins to flow.

made after the highway' commis

of a few business men.
If -the injunction is issued,
then, say Commissioners William

ViinUuzer, the commission will
take it for granted, that Albany
does not want the bridge and so
the highway department will let
the matter drop.
