Laugh-thrills will be the order
of the day at the Oregon theatre
today when the inimitable comedy
team of Wallace Beery and Ray

This picture has been acclaimed
the greatest : and funniest of the
Beery-Hatton comedies, but it has
the added novelty of being one of
those rare productions in which
the spectator is carried through a
succession heart-stopping thrills
while being convulsed with laugh

which is -said i to have been pro
duced on a more lavish scale than
either of its predecessors "Behind
the; Front" and "We're In the
Navy Now" some of the most dar
ing shots ever photographed by a
camera were taken.
The rescues made by those In
trepid fire-fighters. Beery and
Hatton, involve some exceedingly
iisky work, bat while one won

dangers they encounter, . he is
convulsed by the ludicrousness of
their conduct,, even in the midst

- Low barometric pressure and a
stormy area off the coast of Ire
land extending foV several hun
dred miles was reported by the
local weather bureau today as one
of the difficulties which the Fok
ker monoplane, St. Raphael, with
Captain Hamilton, Colonel l Mln
chin, and Frances Lowenstein
Werthelm would have to surmount
on its hop from England to Can
ada. If successfully passed, the wea
ther bureau said, a wide area in
mid-Atlantic of cloudy weather
and showers would be the next
test of the plane's capabilities.
Off the Newfoundland coast a
heavy fog was reported.
The entire distance : from ' the
western edge of the storm area
to the North - American coast
would have to' be traversed, ac
cording to the bureau, against
