"There are popular songs and
popular singers, bat the peeress
of them all Is Edythe Eran, in
ternationally famous songstress,
-who is featured in the gorgeous
Fanchon & Marco Spring "Idea,"
at the Elsinore theater, where at
traction shows Sunday and Mon
day. t"TheningeHng sweetness of Miss
Kvans voice, her beauty and her
cfcarm couples with her fare abil
ity to putcolorful expression into
her popular songs and ballads
places her in the ranks of the
foremost artists of the present
day. She was formerly of the
team Percy Bronson and Edythe
Evans which captivated audiences
throughout the United States, Can
ada and Europe and which was
and is considered one of the most
popular teams ever presented.
They hare a wide following and
many patrons of theaters on the
Pacifie coast anticipate the pleas
ure of liearing the feminine half
of. the team sing the latest Fan

"Sprig has cub." remarks the
orchestra leader, succulently, and
he is right. TheTanchon & Mar-

production starring Monte Blue is
the big attraction presented by the
Strand this week. Blue is splen
didly cast as" a slow-in-speech
quick-in-action cowboy of the days
wAen the West was really wild and
wooly.
i i-But don't get the impression
-that "The Brute" is just another
, the hokum Westerns that have
flooded the screen lately. It is
Jtfst the reverse.

terpretations of the old days of
the Far West. There are the gold

nothing diong no . accommoda
tion for American Boldlers in the
village. How about the schloss?
The suggestion was received with
contempt. The Herr Burgomaster
grew momentarily more scornful
while Lieutenant Wheeler felt his
authority slipping.
Suddenly there slipped into his
mind the memory of Otis Skin
ner's volcanic entrance as Colonel
Bridaii in "The Honor of the Fam
ily," and the crash of .his stick
upon the table. He looked down
at the thick neck and Hindenburg
head of the official bent osten
tatiously over his papers, then at
his own rather formidable cudgel,
He wondered if.it would work in
real life as effectively as on the
stage.
He was forced to the experi
ment. Bringing his stick with a
full arm swing down upon the
papers under the Burgomaster's
nose, scattering in every direction,
he glared his demand without a
word.
The Herr Burgomaster sprang
-to his feet, clicked his heels to
gether, put his saluting fingers to
his forehead, and obediently re
plied: "Zu befehl." Lieutenant
Wheeler and his companions slept
t the schloss.
Mr. Skinner and his excellent
aggregation of players will pre
sent "The Honor of the Family"
at the Elsinore on June 22.
Capitol Theater
No greater recommendatiqji
could be given any band than to
state that they were winners of
the most coveted trophy offered
anywhere in the British empire,
that of the English championship
trophy a 2000 gold shield,
which was won by Albert H. Baile
and his Australian national band
In England in 1926. .This remark
able aggregation of musicians con
sisting of 35 soloists of interna
tional reputation is scheduled to
be heard at Bligh's Capitol thea
ter for a series of two concerts
next Tuesday. The concerts will'i
be held at 2:30 and 8:30 p.m.
A few excerpts from newspaper
criticisms taken from all parts of
the world, would be interesting
reading in view of this approach
ing engagement in our city. The
Rochester (N. Y.) Herald says:
"Better than any other band ever
heard here." Mercury of Durban,
South Africa, says: "The perform
ance was nothing less than bril
liant remarkable for its grand
organ effect." From their own
home country comes a statement
lot The Argus of Melbourne viz:
"Perfect symphonic orchestra
tion." The Toronto Canada, Star
Telegram says: "The finest brass
band in the world." In fact every
large center included in the late
world tour of the Australians were
unanimous in their praises.
Albert H. Baile, the conductor,
has had 35 years of the greatest
experience.' His record. of achieve
ment ijQhe world of music Is most
interesting. He is recognized as
being one of the world's greatest
conductors. The wonderful tones,
rythm and perfect . renditions of
the-greatest overtures including
"Tanhauser," "William Tell."
"1812 Overture," as well as the
organ like effects of such numbers
as "Nearer My God to Thee," and
the ableness with which he switch
es to the lighter compositions,
even playing the latest jazz con
traptions, is all due to his won
derful control over his band at all
times.

One of the fastest, most thrill
ing adventure dramas ever screen
ed of the men who go down to the
sea in ships, "Captain Salvation,"
will open at the Capitol today,
is a Cosmopolitan production for
Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, featuring
Lars Hanson, the Swedish actor,
who created such vivid impress
ions in "The Scarlet Letter" and
"Flesh and the Devil." Mr. Han
son is a descendant of the old
Norse Vikings and looks on his
role in "Captain Salvation" as one
of his greatest characterizations.
He is surrounded by an exception
al cast including Pauline Starke,
Ernest Torrence, Marceline Day
and Sam de Grasse.
"Captain Salvation" is packed
with spectacular and highly excit
ing scenes. It tells the red-blooded
romance of courageous men
and daring women, batling the
fury of the sea. the intolerance of
petty conventions and the brutal
etiptain of a hell-ship. A saga of
adventure it fairly breathes the
salt tang of the deep. It grips,
it thrills, it amazes, and its love
istory tugs at the heartstrings.
