"Tne average Human ear can

From a reportertal point of
view, one' of the most Interesting
things about "Rose Marie. which
played to a well-filled house at
tho-Elslnore theatre 'Wednesday
evening was the fact that U lived
up to its advance notices. As en
tertainment, it reached admirable
heights and brougnf new beau
ties of production - and unusual
bits of business that enhanced its
many delightful scenes and lines.
The captivating Virginia Fox.
from whom much was expected,
fulfilled every hope, yet she did
not by any means takeall hon
ors. -Full measnro of praise may
be awarded her - for a graceful,
gracious, altogether delightful
personality and for her possession
ofa clear, rich voice.
Vocally Mlsa Fox shared hon
ors with Paul Donah, as she
shared the spotlight with him.
About their romance "Rose Marie"
was woven most colorfully and
with lines as well as music thta
proved of absorbing interest. The
much-heralded totem pole num
ber was a spectrum of color and
action and with other scenes in
the far northwest It' p res anted
vivid contrast to the refreshing
charm of the scene in the grand
ball room of the Chateau Fonte-4

romance of Rose Marie La Flame
and Jim Kenyon came to a de
"Rose Marie" was vivid and an
imated, yet equally dainty and ap
pealing with its scenic effects, its
elaborately' effective costuming
and its tuneful score. A large and
clever chorus completed the charm
of "Rose Marie" and gave excel
lent background for the nonsense
of ; Houston Richards as Hard Boil
ed Herman and for the prettlness
and talent of Peggy Bates - as
Lady Jane. The presentation was
forcibly halted by an eager au
dience at the totem pole dance
and again when : Miss Nirska as
Wanda, a tragic Indian maid,
danced, to say nothing of the sev
eral times it paused for response
to the melodies sung by the prin
cipals. "Rose Marie,'.' gave an appre
ciative Salem audience an appe
tite for more of the same. B.

The question of allowing senior
high school students to dance in
the scbol gymnasium Is likely to
be a long time in being settled In
the students' favor. Principal J. C.
Nelson Intimated Wednesday after
he had been Informed that the
school board had refused to take
action one way or the other until
the high Bchool principal, dean of
girls and city superintendent sanc
tioned the idea.
Since the student problem has
been thrown to the school heads,
Mr. Nelson said he would take a
vote of the faculty members at the
teachers' meeting next Monday
after school, and that possibly this
would .be succeeded by .a yes or
no vote of the . parents, taken in
much the" same way the recent se
cret societies matter was handled.
Mr. Nelson pointed out that
while an active minority or op
position to school dances has not
yet developed, he expects it now
that the matter has gone further
than mere student voting.
A few of the problems involved
in the question were pointed out
by the principal, including the
fact that it Is not likely school
dances will keep the students from
attending public dances; that they
will exclude students who do not
want or care to dance from school
social life; the hours during which
dance may be held; and the mat
ter of preventing outsiders from
cutting in on the school times, as
well as proper supervllson
