A .tidal wave of laughter and
good cheer Is on the way and will
reach here tonight at the Heilig
theater with May Robson and
"Helena's Boys" riding on the
crest, with good luck and success
indelibly stamped on them, as
"Helena's Boys" has had a three
months' run at the Henry 'Miller
theater in New York,' and Is dup

Miss Robson is a paragon of
perfection In the odd role of "Hel
ena." The gist of the play is an
awful moment in a woman's life
when she is being, left behind by
her . boys whose i advanced and
modern ideas, are just opposite to
hers. ' It staggers her at first but
when she gains ' her equilibrium
she. is armed for this conflict and
she never retreats, but gains her

example of stage-craft.

"KING'S 1925
Bligh Theatre
A wonderful variety of genuine
entertainment is offered for . the
patrons of the Heilig theater with
the ' next Association vaudeville
unit show which comes to "the
Heilig next Friday.
The "la Petite Ballet" with
Ollienne Terry & Co. heads the
bill with one of the most spectacu
Iar terpsichorean offerings of the
season. Five attractive, y o u n g
ladies featuring Miss Terry pre
sent a rapid routine of all the
well known dances including, the
Charleston,- Oriental, toe, jazz,
character dances and a big pony
dance, for aicjimaxinl,which, H
the girls, are .costumed as ponies
There is an abundance of luxuri
ous1' stage settings and a wealth of
gorgeous costumes.
A master magician and super-
comedian is "Allen Norman?",
who 'deliberately sets out to de
ceive his audience and in spite of
the fact that everyone instinctive
ly declares "try to do it" he sac
ceeds beautifully and humorously
for he has the happy faculty of
knowing how to mix in a rare line
of humor with his magic and mys
ticisms. . '
One of the most unique singing
and musical numbers is that pre
sented by Frankie Hall, and Billy
O'Brien. in their skit which they
call "Sky-Larking." An aviation
crash and its attending thrills is
worked into the introduction of
the act after which a number of
those old time popular ballads are
rendered in - a delightful tenor
voice Ty Billy Oi'Brien as well as
a numberf good harmony selec
tion in. which Miss Hall's splen
did " feopraW blends perfectly, with
fiaf ,iif Kr nartner." "Wild Irish
Rose."-"i8s Me Againtand "Oh
How-., f; Mlas You Tonight" are
Rome , of , the favorites presented by
this exeefttnt team. Mr. O'Brien
sprang into fame some time ago
A reception held Friday evening
at the First Presbyterian church
by the members of Sunset Troup 4,
Boy Scouts of America, honoring
.their- respective - parents, proved
to be one , of the most successful
entertainments staged by. , local
Scouts within the annals of the
present organization. Some i 73
parents were in attendance. . j
Members of the troop's commit
tee, Messrs. Hudkins, Laws and
Gahlsdorf, received the parents
and visitors on behalf of the troop
organization. Scoutmaster Harold
Li. Cook presented his troop of
some 40 scouts, under the leader
ship of Senior Patrol Leader Ard-
ery Rankin, and. the evening' pro
gram was a repertoire of contests
and demonstrations, mingled with
technique and humor, on the- part
of. members of the troup. Scout
Varley Ennor demonstrated the
art of. making a fire by friction.
Members of the Stag patrol, under
the direction of Patrol Leader
Carmica'., constructed a bridge out
of materials gleaned from I the
woods, which they put together by
aid of Boy Scout knots. This
bridge measured some 20 feet long
and when finished was capable of
supporting 600 pounds weight.
The troop orchestra, composed
of members of the troop, delighted
their hearers with varied musical
selections. This orchestra includes
the following members: 'Fred Ca-
mical, . Fred Remmington, Clinton
tLovell, Ronald Hudkins, Tommy
Livesley and Russell Scott.
Troop 4 owns an Atwater Kent
radio, the gift of William Gahls
dorf, and this, together with the
troop's motion picture machine.
provided special entertainment for
the occasion.
Nine candidates have filed their
applications to become members
of .the troop within the past two
weeks. The membership of the
troop is limited to 64 scouts, and
when this number is reached,
which will be very soon, .boys
wishing to' become members" will
be placed on a waiting list.

Bebe Daniels, star in "Miss
Bluebeard," brings a new and
equally amusing comedy to the
Oregon theater this afternoon In
"Lovers in Quarantine," which
will be the feature offered on that
screen until tomorrow evening
when "The Knockout" comes to
replace it.
The gales of hearty laughter
which marked the showing of
"Miss Bluebeard" are all contained
in "Lovers in Quarantine," and
there are a few-more thrown in
for good measure. ,
Bebe, as Diana Gordon, is a mis
chievous little tomboy who act3
first and thinks afterwards. She
believes desperate situations re
quire desperate remedies, and is
not the type of girl to give up the
man she loves without a whole
some battle.
Diana falls in love with Tony
Blunt, played by Harrison Ford,
who imagines himself in love with
Diana's flirtatious older sister,
Pamela, and plans to elope with
her on a steamer. Diana, believ
ing that Tony is really in love
with her, through a clever scheme
takes her sister's, place on the
boat, and it .is not for three days
that-Blunt discovers he has eloped
with the wrong girl.
Matters begin to call for fast
thinking .when the , passengers on
the ship are all quarantined. Di
ana and Tony, referred to by all
as "the honeymoon couple," with
the girl's spinster chaperone,
Amelia Pincent, are assigned a
little bungalow apart from the
rest. Then the fun begins. . It's
Bebe's funniest picture the fun
niest picture you've seen -in many
Salem people have had a taste
of , a ' kind of dramatic ' offering
they are going to hate to give up.
and it is to be regretted that the
comedy drama, "Johnny Get Your
Gun." at the Heilig theater last
night was a farewell performance.
A play full of irresistible humor,
Forrest Taylor in the major role,
and the lovely Anue Berryman
playing opposite, resolved into a
total that was a sparkling success.
With far more social manuevers
than trigger manipulations, the
play at first glance would seem to
belie its name. But in spite of the
tact that all "war" was a 'parlor
and studio affair there was a Very
distinct once or twice when one's
goose-flesfi rose.
The prologue of the play is
given over to action in the studio
ofxlhe Burnham-Barnard Picture
company in Los Angeles where
some clever scene-shooting is done
in scenario adaptation and the ar
rangement of "sets." The three
ftR proper are staged in the fash-Vn-ble
Long Island home of
pi'o.'.y relatives and a hoax duke.
For a "Johnnie," like Wiggins,
"With a pistol in his hat" to
adapt himsen to the ways of the
Duke No More and his clientele,
was is absorbing as it was out
rageously funny, and the "gastro
nomic' "acrobatics that caused
such consternation for Eliza Burn-
bam (Miss Fanchon Everhart, one
of the most esteemed members of
the whole Forrest Taylor com
panyj caused an overflow of
laughter as far as the extraordin
ary responsive audience was "con
cerned. Miss Berryman played
the role of house-maid with the
same appeal as she plays any so
ciety jrole and sateen becomes her
as we!ll as the silk. The personal
ity i the thing and Anne Berry
man as exquisitely as For
rest Taylor has it vitally. ,
Supporting members of the Cast
included William Brewer, Cecil
Druramand, Charles Rice, Kirke
M. pecker, Alvin Baird, and; a
thoroughly superb young actress,
Miss! Franc Hale, who took the
part of Janet Burnham, the rich
orphan "without a nickel." for
about five minutes.

A young married man met
friend of his bachelor days, and
nnsisted on his coming home with
him to dinner. His wife was un
prepared for visitors, and calling
him . aside told him that she had
only a few oysters, and that when
the friend had eaten his quota of
six he must not be asked to Hake
any more. In spite of his prom
ise to remember, when the guest
had eaten his six, the host pressed
him to take more. The wife looked
distressed and the friend declined.
The husband insisted, the wife
looked in agony, and the guest
firmly refused to liave the rest of
the oysters brought from the
kitchen. v
Later the wife said to her hus
band: -"..A.
"How could you mgeihim to
