In extending naval ratio agree
ments to cruisers, destroyers, and
submarines, President Coolidge
feels that the disposition of this
aspect of the armament 'problem
would make it easier to deal with
the other elements, particularly if
naval armaments were considered
"as having a direct relation to the
land and air armament questions.

The bright red lights cast a red

I Elslnore Theater
"The Strong man" will show at
the'El&inore theater today. - Feb
ruary 12. This Is a picture filled
with entertaining features which
will delight everyone. An eminent
reviewer says:
"Certainly Langdon has dis
covered that secret', of great
comedy.humor mixed with pathos.
When -1 ; wasnT weeping with
laughter at his absurd antics In
this fast-moving feature, I found
ray eyes moistening at the subtle
bits of sorrow in the excellently
evolved story; " ;
Many; will undoubtedly agree
withn the critics who. have labeled
The Strong Man", the season's
sensation of comedies.
"The Strong Man" is the droll
tale' of a Belgian ex-soldier who
comes to America to find the girl
whose "Buddy" letters cheered
him In the black hours of battle.
The brief war scenes make an
excellent opening for the film.
' After a screamingly funny se
quence at Ellis Island, Langdon
arrives In New Pork, looking lost
and lonely as only this genius of
mimicry could act.
His escapades as the assistant
to a German weight lifter take
him through a whirl of hilarious
scenes which .draw just about
2,222 laughs in the six reels.
Priscilla Bonner, Gertrude. As
tor, Arthur Thalasso, Robert Mc
Klm and William V. Mong make
up the supporting cast which was
directed by Frank. Capra from an
original story by Langdon himself.
On Sunday, February 13, Fan

proving very 'successful and more

Oregon. Theater
-."Fun with a purpose is what
Mark Twain gave the woTld In "A
Connecticut Yankee In King Arth
ur's Court." which; presented by
William Fox as a reissue film pro
duction, will play at the Oregon
theater today, February 12, only.
Mark Twain wrote this great
comic romance first to make the
world laugh and second to "show
up King Arthur.
1 Twain had not a very high opin
ion of the Knights of the Round
Table. . He had heard too much
about them. Ruskln. and William
Mprrls had leen feeding the pub
lic, 'on the Middle AgeS. and it had
become the fashion to believe that
everybody dead and gone -was bet
ter than everybody alive. Tenny
son's "Idylls of the King" made
Mark Twain sick. He was tired of
the Middle Ages. Ladies languish
ing in high, inaccessible towers,
waiting for knights to come and
rescue them, did not appeal to. him
at all.. He had - been . brought up
on the Mississippi, and he had the
Idea that one Mississippi riverman
was as good as several of the
Knights of the Round Tajble, and
probably a lot better.- Sir Gala
had he considered a wishy-washy
sort of hero; he preferred Tom
Sawyer. .
"I'll show up King Arthur and
his : well-known knights,, said
Mark Twain.; in -effect. So he
wrote a book describing the adventures-of
a modern, 'Smart, clever
young American at the Court of
King Artjour. .'."vy -

One of the first things : this
young Amirican. Martin Caven
dish, discovered was that. Arthur
and the Knights were victims j of
superstition. y Then he discovered
that tffe plumbing of King, Arth
ur's Castle was yery bad indeed.
The vaunted knights did not take
a bath any too often, and the
ladles of : the court were not par
ticularly attractive. j
Worst of alL the Knights of the
Round Table were no great shakes
when It came to fighting. Martin,
armed with a revolver and a lasso,
defeated t the whole company j of
them in a great tournament, and
then turned around and told the
king .that all this talk about nobil
ity was bnnk.yl
, Life In Lyonnesse was uncom
fortable for . the Yankee until jhe
had mounted all the knights jon
motor-cycles, given them revolv
ers, and .improved the royal tele
phone service-and the plumbing.
This was all great fun for Mark
Twain and his readers, and It did
good work in decreasing the sale

eval works such as Morris "Three
