ENDORSE BIG FILM
"I viewed 'The Naked Truth'
with interest. I consider it one
that could be seen with good re
sults. There te nothing objection
able in the presentation of facts
which young people should know,
said Mrs. Gertrude Stevens Iea-
vitt,; prominent worker in the
cause of temperance and daughter
of the late Mrs. L. M. N. Stevena,
for many ye;s president of the
"Evervbodv should see 'The
Naked Truth for ht ewondertul
lesson it teaches." added Miss
Alice A. Clough. secretary of the
"The Naked Truth" is a feature
film with Helen Chad wick and
Jack Mulhall. and will be shown
for three days, starting today, at
the Elslnore theater.
It is a rather gruesome exposi
tion of the ills" that fall to those
who break the laws of purity el
ther through intent, or through
.failure of their parents to teach
them the vital consequences of de
fiance of these laws. In particu
lar is the lesson of the picture .jil
rected at the parents.
To hte reviewer's mind there
was nothing obscene in toe picture
and objections on thaf ground
were -not particularly valid. One
or two glimpses were afforded of
life at doubtful resorts, but these
were brief and not unduly sugges
tive, while the moral of the folly
of defiance of social laws was ef
fectively pointed out through the
-showing of pictures of hospital
wards where victims of social dis
eases were under treatment.
The only particular In which, to
our mind, tbe film opened itself
up to, criticism was its highly mel
odramatic character. The ques
tion naturally arising aa to wheth
er or not the exaggerated incidents
might, not lead young people to
scout tbe very lessons those inci
dents-elected to teach.
However there is certainly no
doubt of the benevolent intent and
serious purpose of the film, and it
Is capably played by a cast headed
by Mulhall and Miss Chadwlck.
Mulhall of course, appearing as
the one boy in the neighborhood.
-who through proper parental in
etructlon proved strong enough to
resist tbe onslaaghta of tempts
tlon. and wins as bis reward a
charming wife, a delightful home,
and one of the most adorable of

LILLIAN GISH and RALPH
LILUAfJ GISH HERE
War and its horrors havo been
trafslated to tbe screen In many
forms; the surge and thnnder of
battle has been depicted lp great
spectacles; the side of the soldier
told in "The Big Parade." but to
Lillian Cish has fallen the task of
telling the side of those who, per
haps, suffer most but whose side
has never before been presented
tbe side of tbe women who face
starvation as a side issue in. the
struggles of nations.
Such is her message in "The
graphic depiction of Channing Pol
lock's famous stage dram a a
story of war away from the battle
field; a story of the hatreds, hys
teria and breaking down of hu
man, relationships that follow like
pestilence in the wake of war
On the stage the story was held
the drama's greatest gift -to -the
cause of peace.
As a vehicle for Miss Gish the
new picture, coming today for a
five day showing at the Elsinore
theater, is one of the most grip
ping plays the famous star has
ever appeared in.
It presents a new Lillian Gish
a Lillian Gish in a modern role, in
modern garb, and in an intensely
modern story. It tells of the after
war effects of international -hatreds
in a , powerful dramatic
theme. At times the star rises to
almost sublime heights in the
graphic portrayal of the tragic

Bailey and Barnum, Ted Marks,
and Miss Gwen Evans with her
Sunkist Beauties,- comprising the
Fanchon & Marco bill that fin
isbed a two-day engagement at the
Elsinore last evening, proved to be
quite up to their advance notices
and a credit both to the Elsinore
and the theatrical bureau. Bailey
and Barnum do a blackface act
that is quite classy enough for any
of the bigger cities, which prob
ably Is not to be wondered at,
since, the boys are not long from
the Greenwich Village Follies
They are one of the highest priced
acts to come to Salem, rumor hav
ing it that they receive as a sti
pend right close to eight hundred
bucks a week. A stipend, you un
derstand, being a whole lot more
than wages and even higher class
compensation than many salaries,
But they're worth it. Even a
ware-earner like the writer can
Ted Marks also belongs In the
headline class. At whistling.; im
itations, wise-cracks, and general
funny business, he completely cap
tured his audience and kept ; the
house in a tumult of laughter
throughout his twejve-minute skit.
And by ,the way, the boy is also
reputed to get Important money
for his stuff. He's worth it, too.
And speaking of girls, Miss
Gwen Evans and her bevy of fem
inine pulchritude did their pretty
share to fill out the bill In a large
and luscious manner. They sing
and dance and parade and a lot of
things like that and are not at all
hard to view with the naked eye
And not changing the subject, the
gals are worth what they get. also.
If not more.
Next week's Fanchon & Marcc
program will feature Carlos' Ro
mera, Dorothy Crooker. Klein
Brothers, Shara Visorka, Malvina
Polo,, Judith Romera, Alma Or
tega, June O'Brien. Cecil Arden,

these have been here before but
they come next week with entire

WASHINGTON, April JO.
(AP). -A ' partnership of the
heights and distances which has
won worldwide acclaim passed In
to history today as - Colonel
Charles A, Lindbergh brought his
cherished Spirit of St. Louis to
earth at Us last airport.
"We" participated in one last
long hop. The boyish and tanend
transr Atlantic flyer said the 725
air miles from St. Loots to BolUdg
field had been spenned In foor
hours and 68 minutes.

accordance with , his promise.

"Standing Room Only," and not
great deal of that, was the re
sponse of the public to the Singer
Stock company and its palpable
hit, "So Long. Mary." that delight
ful Geo. M. Cohan success, at the
Oregon Saturday and Sunday, and
the liberal applause and genuine
enjoyment manifested by the
crowds attested in full measure to
a highly satisfactory delivery of
the well known goods -by the act
ors in the piece. The Singer peo
ple have long been fairly popular
in Salem, but they achieved a tri
umph in their latest showing that
decidedly put them in the frn
rank as entertainers, and bids fa
to establish them even more firm
ly in the popular esteem."
The play, the singing and danc
ing, were good; and the specialties
were so far above the average that
one or two of them came near to
eclipsing the main event,-" as Tex

He showed by hia expression what
he would not say beyond, "yes. I
am lorry." He said the plane had
flown mors than 40,000 miles and
could "carry on" that far again.
Major Thomas G. Lanphler,
commandant at Selfrldge field
greeted Lindbergh and they left
the field together.
By the side of the Spirit of St.
Loots remained two enlisted men
One was Private Philip: H. Mac-
Kenxie. who had been told by
Lindbergh not to let any one
touch the ship.
The other was Sergeant hoy W.
Hooe, chief mechanic at Boiling
field, wno had supervised care of
the plane's engine on Its several
visits here. A rough-hewn, scar-red-face
veteran, the sergeant
stood a little distance from the
plane with glistening eyes.
For minutes after Lindbergh
had gone,' no word was spoken,
then W. N. Splcer of 'Baltimore.

lights on the trans-Atlantic flyer's
