PITTSBURGH. Sept. 12 (AP)
Colonel William Thaw and Cap
tain Jack Morris, both of Pitts
burgh, firing a Lockheed Vega
ship in the non-stop trans-conti
nental air race, passed oyer me
Pettis field here at 10:35 o clock
eastern standard time tonight.
They circled the field several
times, frying low enough to estab-
Ush their identity from the
ROOSEVELT FIELD, N. Y.,
" Sept. 12. (AP). Nine planes
took to the air today in a mighty
1 non-stop marathon to Los Angeles,
! but before many hours were pass
ed two ships had been forced
down enroute and another had
Kiyen up the attempt and return
ed to the starting point.
Syracuse Flyer Lands
The first to come to grief was
the Stinson piloted by Clifford Mc
Millin of Syracuse. It landed on
a Pennsylvania mountain top
shortly after leading the field in
to the air.
Another Stinson, the only other
one in the race, got a clogged gas
line tonight and also made a forc
ed landing in Pennsylvania. The
second Stinson was piloted by
Randolph Page of Northville,
Mich. The plane that came back
was Mrs. James A. Stillman's Bel
lanca North Star, piloted by Ar
thur Le Boutilliere, who reported
an imperfectly working engine.
That left six planes in the race,
four of which can share in the
(22,500 prize money.

The Six are the Yanke Doodle

loted by N. B. Mamer of Spokane;
and a Bellanca piloted by Georfce
Haldeman, Ruth Elder's ocean pi
lot, and Dmil Burgin. known as
Long Island's hard luck flier.
The take-offs occupied the
whole day and gave several thrills
to a crowd estimated at about 10,
000. McMillin was the first off at
10:34 a. an., (eastern standard
time) and the last entry. Thaw,
did not leave until almost ! 7.

to obtain a first-hand idea of

of the present public market,
the New Oregon Statesman in

This is what they said about It:
WILLIAM WALSH, local at

public market Is just a number
of regular business establish

one roof near the edge of the

corps has taken the lesson ' to
heart in a thorough manner, and
has made n remarkable improve
ment since that time. Practice

Super-Feature Pictures To

Fanchon-Marco and Vaude
ville Contracts Cancelled
by Manager Guthrie
Loss within the next few weeks
of the regular road show attrac
tions as a result of the "road call
invoked by the striking stage
hands, was faced by the Elsinore
theatre Wednesday. Manager
George Guthrie of the theatre sav
ed embarassment to the Fanchon
and Marco and association vaude
ville managements by cancelling
his contracts with them as soon
as he learned that the road call
had been issued. The vaudeville
show on Saturday of this week
will be the last, and only two

This will make possible, howev

the week-end programs than could
have been offered along with the

nounced. The super-features which
Salem has not seen because of the
stage shows, have been contracted
for; some of the first being "The
King of Kings' and "Wings."
The Manhattan players will
continue their series of legitimate
plays on Thursdays and Fridays
for the present, but later may be
changed to other days of the week.
Musicians at the theatres here

road call, which goes into effect
September 29. To this extent, the
Capitol theatre Is affected as well
as the Elsinore and Oregon. ' The
organists at all of the theatres and
the orchestra at the Elsinore all
are union members.
While the loss of the road
shows is something of a blow to
the Elsinore it will not mean re
consideration of the decision to
refuse the demands of the stage
hands. Manager Guthrie said Wed
nesday. Acceptance of their terms
would mean an actual financial
loss on every week's operation, he
declared, for they totaled up to
an increase of $150 a week in the
cost of operating the Elsinore, and
$72 a week at the Oregon. Neith
