Elsinore Theater
In the Elsinore theater, Wed
. nesday night, June 22," Charles
Frohman will present Otis Skin
ner in the romantic comedy, "The
". Honor of the Family' -
Mr. Skinner's role of. the
swashbuckling Colonel Philippe
Bridau is the most' picturesque
creation among the many memor
able characterizations that he has
contributed to the theater.
Otis Skinner is one of the few
actors now on the stage who are
able by the surety of their artis
try to give to a fictitious charac
ter a reality and humanness that
charms and also convinces. - And
the treason for this is .that Mr
Skinner in his apprentice years In
the theater thoroughly learned his
business and upon this foundation;
has added an individual and total
. ly personal quality of acting that
has made some roles Inevitable his
own. .One of these roles is that of
Colonel Bridau. It is quite Im
possible to conceive any other ac
tor In the English speaking thea
ter giving to this part the same
skillful and sweeping breadth of
portraiture with which Otis Skin
ner has invested it. It is a-thing
of art and a thing of life.
"The Honor or the Family"
originated in a story by Balzac
and so bears upon it the magic of
a master of fiction. From the
. Baliac story "Un Menage de Gar
con," Em He Fabre made a play
. which he called "La Rabouillaise."
. This latter, Paul Potter translated
into English and renamed "The
Honor of the Family."
The story of the play concerns
an old miser who has become the
victim of the machinations of
schemers who are greedy for his
wealth. When all seems propit
ious for the realization of their
plans, 1 the old man's nephew,
, Colonel Philippe Bridsw hhrpofc

Oregon Theater
"McFadden's Flats," which
shows as the feature attraction at
the Oregon theater today, is one
long, hilarious laugh. The fam
ous old stage comedy has been
given a brand new dress, new
laughs and a new lease on life
that should give screen audiences
a new conception of what can be
done in the way of film fun.
Charlie Murray, as the hod
carrying Irishman, is irresistaible,
and teamed up with Chester Conk
lin as a Scotch barber, Charlie
proves one of the greatest comics
of the screen.
Of course, pretty faces and
figures as well have not been
overlooked -in tbe making of this
picture- Edna Murphy, in the
leading feminine role, is one of
the most convincing reasons why
gentlemen prefer blondes. Then,
when Dorothy Dwan comes along
photographing as a decided
brunette one becomes convinced
that he might prefer her without
losing the slightest evidence of his
"McFadden's Flats" tells the
story of the struggles of an Irish
man who, coming to America, has
ambitions to get out of the ranks
of hodcarriers and become a
builder a builder of a flat build
ing that might bear his name, in
fact. He meets a tight-fisted
Scotchman portrayed by Chester
Conklin who becomes his fast
friend in spite of their wide dif
ferences in taste.

Objection May Bring Court
Action, Pastor Declares;
No Action Taken"
SILVERTON, Ore.. June 13.
(Special) No minister was called
at the meeting by Emmanuel
church held , Friday evening fpr
that purpose. A motion made by
L. Oppendahl to postpone the cal
ling of a pastor, was carried by
a vote of 118 to 12.
A motion was then submitted
by J. L. Hatterberg to the effect
that all services be held in St.
Johns church. Instead of as de
cided at the last meeting. A week
ago it was decided that Norweg
ian services be held in Trinity
church, and English, services in
St. Johns church for a, period of
three months. Mr. Hatterberg was
a member of the foriner3 St. Johns
L. H. Meyer, chairman of the
board of directors, then asked for
the floor. He stated that although
he had" worked hard for s& union,
there seemed to be pone,, and be
lieved it useless to force one. .--He
pointed out the material decrease
in Sunday school attendance, stat
ing that other Sunday schools
were being -fed by the children
of Emmanuel congregation.
He could not, he explained,
blame any one group, 'since all
were stubborn. He declared that
he was ashamed to belong to the
congregation named Emmanuel,
because of the continous trouble.
Mr. Meyer concluded by moving
that the option motion be taken
from the table and acted upon.
This motion was made at the last
meeting, to the effect that all
those dissastisfied with Emman
uel congregation leave it and or
ganize a new one. and that all
former Trinity deeded
to the new congregation.
John C. Goplerud took the floor
and said he. believed the motion
was a declaration of war instead
of peace. He thereupon moved
that both the Hatteberg and Mey
er motions be laid on the table.
Goplerud's motion was defeated
with 125 for and 137 against.

Mr. Goplerud moved to adjourn.1

moved that Emmanuel church dis
solve and that everyone return to
Trinity and St. Johns, as before
the union of the two churches.
Rev. Mr. Lindseth, chairman of
the meeting, declared that if any
one opposed this motion. Emman
uel church could not be dissolved
without court action.- L. M. Lar
son then asked how Trinity chuJi
could be dissolved, as at the tijw
of union a great ' many voted
against it. i The first vote, was
unfavorable, he said, but the sev
ond voteL carried favorably with
but a small majority. -
Larson's question remained un
answered. Although John Mae's motion
for. the dissolution of Emmanuel
church was the subject of mueh
discussion, no action was taken.

to adjournment, however, Mr. 1
Goplerud"s suggestion that those
dissatisfied with Emmanuel

favorably received, and a meeting
was set for tonight, to be held in
