A Lot of Things
A great many things are sure to
follow the installing of this auto
matic scutching machine. It will
mean the easy handling of 3000
acres of flax to be planted this
year, against the 2000 acres of
last year for the state flax plant
The same as to the 4000 acres
that will probably come next year
and the 8000 acres that will be
grown for the state within a few
years. And the growing of addi
tional thousands of acres for pri
vate account, to be finished in lo
cal scutching plants all over the
valley, by free labor.
For the state flax plant, this
will mean more retting talks. It
will mean more room for drying
the retted flax. It will mean the
extension of tho walls around the
prison at least the enlarging of
thtf srttek"des, in order to have
more room to carry on the opera
Lions of the industries there. It
will mean the erection of an office
building, in order better to accom
modate the growing business of
the industries there. They run up
above $1000 a day now, for seed
and cow feed and fiber and tow
and agricultural lime and all the
rest. The business will double, and
double again, and then keep on
mounting. The limit will likely be
SOlmj acres of flax for the state
llax plant but there is no pre
dicting what the limit will be for
the state lime plant.
The pri.son machine shops are
working now on the making of 10
new flax pulling machines, for
use in harvesting the crop of this
year in addition to the 20 mach
ines now in this district. No tell

"THE OETOUR" FINE
PLAY WELL HANDLED
Moroni Oisen Cast Pleases
Jn Veracious Story of
; American Life
By Roxella Bunch
A! packed house witnessed the
delightful presentation of Owen
Davis' clever drama. "The De
tour'f at the Capitol theater by
the Moroni Olsen players last
This play. one of the best
American dramas vividly depicts
the narrow attitude toward life of
the inhabitants of remote sections
of the older states.
Charming Janet Young might
be called the "leading lady" of the
play only that that terra is too
limited for her remarkable versa
tility. Miss Young has appeared
in character roles from that of a
child to a grandmother. In the
production last night she took the
part of Helen Hardy.
Moroni Olsen portrayed Steptten
Hardy, a farmer who had become
a slave to his land; whose one
goal in life was the acquiring of
Perhaps, Mr. Olsen is best de
scribed by the adjective "big." He
is six feet three and one half inch
es in height. His acting, too, has
a quality that can best be de
scribed by this one adjective. Al
though he has a most generous
attitude toward his fellow players
he dominates the scene complete
ly when he steps on the stage and
speaks in his deep, resonant voice.1
The daughter of this couple
Kate, was portrayed by the lovely
Dorothy Adams who won all
hearts when seen here last as one
of the twins in the presentation
of "The Lilies of the Field."
- Byron Kay Folger appeared
once again' in the character roles
which he does so admirably. Last
uight he took the part of Tom
Lane, a neighboring farmer whose
numerous troubles and tribula
tions added some exquisite humor
:o the production.
; The work of Mr. and Mrs. La
nont (Gordon Nelson and Leora
Thatcher) was noteworthy.
Other well-known members of
the company who had prominent
parts included Harry R. Allen
(Ben Glenney: Joseph E. Wil
liams (Weinstein); and Thomas
"The X)etour" concents a fam
ily living in an isolated commun
ity. The mother, blessed or cursed
with a Jittle education, regrets
having given up her girlhood am
bition that might have led to a
great career as an artist, to marry
Stephen Hardy, a farmer. Denied
all cultural expression for herself,
she lives in the determination to
see her daughter advanced in the
career that she, herself, gave up.
To this end she scrapes and saves
for years to have th enecessary
sum that will enable Kate to study
painting in New York.
The love element enteis into
the story in the person of Tom
Lane who hag chanced his all in
