ViTTH UCENSE WORK
With approximately 59.500 automo
bile licenses issued so far this year
the automobile registration depart
ment of the secretary of state's office
Monday had worked its way through
the mass of applications with which
it was deluged at the first of the year
and is now issuing license plates
promptly upon demand, so that there
is no longer any excuse for any mo
torist evading the motor vehicle law
by operating his car with an old li
cense tag or with no license tag at all.
Notice is being sent to the police of
ficers of all counties throughout the
state to this effect and delinquent
motor vehicle owners are warned to
License tags have also been issued
for 1150 motorcycles, 1100 chauffeurs
and 170 motor vehicle dealers, the re
ceipts of the department to date ag
gregating approximately 11,2(0,000.
The business of the department this
year shows a very material increase
over the business of a year ago. Up
to January 26, 1919, licenses had
been Issued for 47,293 automobiles,
1135 motorcycles, 1200 chauffeurs
and 341 dealers with total receipts of
3342,540. The increase in the license
fee this year over that of last year,
however, is accounted for by the large
Increase In the license fees imposed
by the last regular session of the leg
islature and which became operative
with the 1920 licenses.

Girls! Buttermilk Creates
Beauty Overnight !
No Fuss. Just Try it This Now Way.
The first application of Howard's
Buttermilk Cream will astonish you.
It creates beauty almost like magic,
but the most wonderful thing about It
la the fact that whilst It turns the
dullest and most lifeless complexion
to radiant beauty and makes red or
rough arms snowy white, yet there is
not the slightest sign of its use after
application, It actually vanishes from
sight mid the most heated atmosphere
will not produce the least shlnlneas or
Rreasiness of the skin.
It is absolutely harmless and will
neither produce or stimulate the
growth of hulr. Within twenty four
hours this wonderful combination

As cheering and refreshing as a
breath from sunny Italy, the appear
ance ef Leo Carrlllo in "Lombard!,
Ltd," at the Grand opera house Mon
day evening, captured the hearts of
Salem theater goers as no dramatic
performance has done In a great
while. In the portrayal of the sunny
hearted "fashionable dressmaker" Mr.
Carrlllo was a wonder. Not once, dur
ing the entire performance, was his
characterization In the slightest man
ner forced. This, Indeed, was one of
the chief charms of the play, every
actor and actress taking his or her
part as though It were the natural
phase of their existence.
The audience was with "Lombar
di" from the moment of his appear
ance In the first act, and it stayed
with him through the sunshine and
shadow of the play until the final cur
tain was lowered. Through the rol
licking scenes when the tempermen
tal little Italian fairly tore his hair in
a frantic effort to express his artistic
ideas, and especially In the dramatic
Instances when the tenseness of the
situation was relieved by the pathetic
ally humorous mnnner In which he
made light of his worries, the full
house was his, to sway as he willed.
Grace Valentine, as Daisy Mahoney
shared honors with the star. Her man
ner of acting Is Inimitable. Nora
Blake (Anne Hamilton) Lombardl's
assistant; Riccardo Tossello (Warner
Baxter), the "Vermicelli King," and
Liila Moore (Ethel Wilson) a show
girl and former employe of the es
tablishment, were excellent. Each in

SOLDIERS FOR DUTY
BY BURNS SOCIETY
ON MONDAY NIGHT
With a literary and musical pro

birthday was observed at the home
of Mr. and Mra Wm. McGilchrlst on
Sonth Commercial street, Monday
evening. About fifty friends of the
Scottish poet enjoyed the occasion,
including the hospitality of the Mc
After reading the records of a pre
vious meeting, following officers of
the Burns society were chosen:
Wm. McGilchrlst, president.
John Bayne, vice president.
Mrs. Wm. Fleming, secretary-treasurer.
Mrs. Gordon McGilchrlst opened the
evening very appropriately with
"Comin' Through the Rye" and later
favored the company with humorous
John Bayne read and commented
on the autobiography of the poet and
was followed with, an eloquent and
reminiscent address by Rev. Thos.
Anderson of the First Presbyterian
church. Whllo bora in England, Rev.
Anderson was reared from childhood
in a Scotch-Irish family and acquired
the real Highland burr. As a . great
lover of Burns poetry and admirer of
the man, and having travelled over
the country in which the poet lived,
he was very much applauded tor the
treat he gave the audience. His ren
dition of "A Man's a Man tor All o'
That," was masterly. Others were
called on for remarks and Dr. Jas.
Eivln very acceptably presided as
Mrs. Jessie Robertson and Mrs. J.
A. Carson at the piano rendered
Scotch songs. The hosts had been in
vited to favor the guests with a pance
but Mra. McGilchrlst declined at first
but when Mra Robertson played a
Scotch reel Mrs. ' McGilchrlst could
not control herself but grabbed Wil
liam, who is well in the seventies,
and made him foot it as lively as
when they were young people in the
land of the heather.
An entirely Scotch menu was serv
ed for refreshments. The festive hag
gls crowned the board, this national
dish having been prepared by Mrs,
G. W. Chand. It was served with
Scotch short bread, oat cakes and
tea. Miss Agnes Bayne attended the
door In the national costume ot
page boy in kilties.
The annual meeting of the Burns
club was omitted lost year on account
of the flu epidemic but It was the
unanimous wish of the friends at
tending last night that this never
occur again. Resolutions were adopt
ed complimenting Mr. and Mrs. JIc
Gilchrist as entertainers.
