. Elslnore Theater .
The attraction - for the Sunday
and Monday showing at the Elai
nore theater is one of those un-
.usual offerings that are eagerly
sought by managers but are
Jound all lob seldom. Even such
exacting producers as Fanchon
and Marco cannot continually
maintain a. uniform standard of
entertainment in their produc-tions.'-The
uttual run of the Elui
oreH revues is very good at times
'there, are exceptional offerings.
fTblg ig one of those times.
Roy Smoot, nationally known
' tenor, is the headliner and, unless
Los Angeles critics flatter grossly
possesses a voice of unusual
.charm and quality. He is sup
ported or, one might almost' say,
overshadowed, by the twenty un
usually 'beautiful Hollyrood girls
'.who form the cast. For grace,
r' poise and uniform beauty of face
and figure, no show this season
carries their equal.
; Miss Fanchon personally select
ed and schooled this particular
group of winsome girls, training
'six' of them in original specialties
and the entire twenty in a series
Jot 'ensemble numbers that are ex
ceptionally intricate and pleasing.
, ' -"The offering is presented in
three vividly contrasting but qual
lr pleasing - episodes:. "Winter
Carnival.' '.'Indian . Legend" and
"The Mardi Gras." The first
. ,fihows the girls in the chic cos--lumeg
of -winter sports and is live
ly and intriguing. The "Indian
'Legend" is beautifully Bet in art
xioveau stage effects and presents
ome very clever dancing specialty
number in costume. The "Mardi
Gras" is an idealized peep Into old
New Orleans --during the famous
Carnival of mirth that, holds sway
there yearly.. It ends in a blaze
jt lights, music and laughter that
iinakes for the best in stage enter
jfclwfoent. Throughout the three
"partfe of the revue, the costumes
jjnd Jottings are ultra modern, the
Voiceslare excellent and the girls
fire trply beautiful. You will en-
' Joy it.

Mary Pickford, who has made
a score of screen masterpieces and
brought pleasure to millions, has
just completed a picture which is
said by many critics to be the best
of her career.
The picture is "Sparrows," a
United Artists Corporation rer
lease, which shows at the Holly
wood theater for two days, March
20 and 21.
The role of Mama Mollie offers
to Mary Pickford a splendid op

There is not a dull moment in

COMING TO CAPITOL THEATER
Strictly Graded City System
Planned; Teachers Assign
ed From Normal
OREGON NORMAL SCHOOL,
Monmouth, March 19. (Special.)
The demand for practice work in
the training . department at the
Oregon normal school continues
to increase. Recently President
Landers has made a reorganiza
tion of work in two of the depart
ments which enables him to meet
this pressing demand in a very
satisfactory manner. A new
course in junior practice is under
consideration by the president,
and if found satisfactory, will be
used to some extent in the future.
The new organization calls for
the changing of the school at
Rickreall from a rural center to a
strictly city graded system. The
practice work will be conducted
there in the sane manner as it is
now done In Monmouth and In
dependence, and only senior stud
ents of high ranking will be select
e'd for thi3 work. Eighteen sen
iors have been chosen and are now
ready to take up their work at the
beginning of the Spring term. The
following facts concerning these
people will teach at Rickreall are
of interest. The majority of them
have had college work, ranging
from 1 to 4 years. This must be
understood to be preparation be
yond the normal school. Then,
too, a good percentage are teach
ers of experience.
All .the necessary changes for'
shifting the Rickreall school into!
the new organization have been
made. This gives to this little
town a most exceptional advan
tage in educational lines. It is
doubtful if another town for its
size in the state will have better
advantages for the school chi!-i
dren. It is! not generally known
that practically a new dormitory
has been constructed and furnish
ed to accommodate the young
women who will teach in Rick
reall. This gives to those who go
there living conditions second only
to the dormitory in Monmouth.
Rickreall is1 the junction of two of
the principal highways of the AVil
lamette valley and is situated
within easy reach of Portland,
Dallas, Salem and Monmouth.
Those students assigned to
Rickreall are Thelma Beach, Port
land; Edna Drake, Molalla: Geor
gia Finley, Portland; Florence
Snow, Portland; Fannie Todd,
HermiBton; Olga t'otila, Astoria:
Beatrice Anderson, Portland; J.
