the response In faror ot the

unanimous and eager on the part
of U who have been approached.
"It is surprising," says Dr. Par

aroused by the flood ot anti-pro-hlbltion
propaganda released
through the various wet organ
isations, and who are ready to
get together and launch a new
offensive ot education and Infor
mation supporting the amend
ment. We are convinced that this
masa meeting will be the begin
ning of such a campaign as will
strengthen the prohibition forces
and create a new public opinion,
and conscience on the matter of
law observance and enforce

Well, let me as are you that as
for myself I find "Illicit" an ex
ceptionally entertaining and artis
tic production. You will see it at
the Elsinore today and tomorrow.
Perhaps yon. like myself, will be
most exasperated that after such
a desperate struggle to make an
Intelligent husband realize the ne
cessity of 'remaining a lover as
well as a husband, and leave to
his wife a bit of the freedom ot
courtship days and give to her the
attentions which won her In the
first place. Barbara Stanwyck
gives up and goes back to James
Rennie. the typical husband, and
lets him remain the bus and
whose property she Is.
True, the story develops that
she held him well enough to pre
vent the other woman from win
ning the last hand, but he was
still th "husband who could not
give up his property."
The story is that of a girl who
loves bat tears the bondage of
marriage. To save her illusions
from being, crushed and to retain
her freedom she takes complete
love out of wedlock until the
breath of suspicion hovers ever
her and then because of her fam
ily standing she marries the man.
Before; two years are up the
man who had been a sweet lover
becomes a husband with a cold in
his head. Separation follows while
Barbara Stanwyck tries to regain
her dream. '
The story is very true to life.
very well, acted, the lines are clev
er and for those- who wish to
think there is plenty to provoke
thought, and for those who wish
to be amused there- is equally as
much to provoke laughs and
Charles Butterworth as the
comedy relief j Is one of the clev
erest characters to appear In a
play for some time. The photog
raphy, scenes and clothes are far
superior to the average play.
"The Lash." which Is now at
the Capitol,, with Richard Barthel
mess. Is also an excellent picture.
The plot is Intensely realistic
and gripping. Although the story
depicts the xlays of our early his
tory Just after California came In
to the anion, yet the elements
which make up the picture are
those of the human emotions of
love, courage. Justice, treachery
and fidelity and they speak, the
language of all people and of all
BartheimeBfl la splendid la the
part of' a young Spaniard who
comes back to his native Califor
nia to find that certain Americans
who fire in power, are defrauding
his people. ; His. home 1 Is one of
the loveliest of the old Spanish
estates. Through a tragic experi
ence-with an American land of
fice officer, Fred Kohler, Barthel-
mess as the young son of the
Spanish nobleman, Robert Edeson,
becomes a bandit, making war up
on all 'Americans. Mary Astor as

The story deals with the activi
ties ot the band': and with the
laud office, men, who try to secure
the land of the Spanls't by under
handed means. Fred Kohler as
the villian plays an excellent role,
as does James Rennie. Fine rid
ing, spectacular outdoor shots, ex
cellent acting and a tense plot;
make for aa excellent picture.

Aldrich, Marathon Talker,
Is Heard at WiUamette U.;
Dr.; Harold 1 Aldrlea. ot .New
York state, better known as the
marathon preacher,, spoke to
Willamette nnlrerslty student
Monday at chapel services. Mr.
Aldrtca has spoken ta S 1 states
and as Ibnc as IS hours in one
day glrlag that many one hour
serai oas. - - - - r-r -
The; speaker bad. a free, fear
less manner that spoke of years
of publlo , speaking. - Ills . Amer
icanisms and wit attracted
rounds of applause aad gales ot
laughter from the students.
From 1 comments made by the
students he was judged at one
of "the best liked speakers who
has spoken la Waller bail this
year. ,
Although the speaker seemed
to stimulate laughter he made a
number ot points that were tak
en as advice by what seemed a
larger percentage ot the student
body, j I
lie, pointed out the fallacy of
tear! as a handicap. Referring
to professors, he ; asserted that
the teacher who pointed out the
students' mistakes was a better
friend, than the one who bragged
on the; -young person's successes.
A lesson learned by Henry
Ward Beecher was used as an il
lustration of one of the speaker's
points. ; It ' seems that Mr.
Beecher, when In school, once
made up his mind to get the an
swer to a certain problem. He
worked practically all night on

fix standards ot farm products

The bill will be withdrawn,
submitted to the committeemen,
