"Let laughs be unconflned," re
cently said Harry Pollard, director
of "Poker Faces," the unusually
joyous comedy, starring Edward
Everett Horton and Laura La
Plante, which is now throwing
spectators df the Capital theater
into spasms of mirth. It shows
tere today. April 8.
All honor to Pollard and his ad
mirable cast in this rollicking pic
ture, Jammed with more laughs
than any picture shown here in
months. There Is not a dragging
mrment in this brilliant photoplay
which whizzed from beginning to
end with the speed of a comet.
The sub-titles, which often make
o- break the picture, are an ad
ditional brightness to a rapidly
moving plot which heightens com
edy by its Intricacies.
Horton is funnier than ever in
"Poker Faces," and appears In one
sequence in one of the funniest

"I have lived! The American con

dollars, nor love, nor real estate."
That phrase, made famous by
Rndyard Kipling in. his descrip
tion of his battle with a 12-pound
salmon in the Clackamas river, to
gether with the rest of the tale,
was sent to President Coolidge by
E. P. Averill. state game warden,
in an invitation to spend part of
the coming summer in Oregon.
But, the president failed to ac
cept the invitation, in a polite and
brief note from his secretary,
"Many men have crossed the
continent to fish for salmon in
the Willamette river at the lalls
near Oregon City," wrote Averill.
"Others have crossed oceans as
well as the continent for the priv
ilege of taking steel heads from
the Rogue river or Clackamas. We
honestly believe no state in the
Union offers such a variety or
such excellent fishing."
