charm, a spontaneous, unpremedi

together with a gracious large-souled
personality absolutely void of affecta

soprano in the world today. Florence

they seem like school girls compared

ceived from Mr. Haymaker, and his
answer to the same.
The people of Oregon, If I am not;
mistaken will not worry over the
controversy between Chamberlain
and Wilson. Mr. Wilson is not the rec
ognized leader of the democratic par
ty m Oregon. He was Just elected
president to do the will of the ma
jority, and not otherwise. Mr. Wil
son is not any more Interested In the
league of nations than I am or any
other . democrat, or any republican
ought to be. Why should he try to
make It a personal matter? We all as
democrats want the league of nations.
Our George should be commended
for trying his best to get one. Cham
berlain realized that he did not be
long to a stand pat party, but on the
other hand Chamberlain belongs to
the progressive party of the United
States. Let Oregon democrats give
George E. Chamberlain such a rous
ing majority on the 21st day of this
month that no outsider will try to
dictate to us again.

To Be Repeated
Owing to the fact that a great -many
patrons were turned away for lack of
room at its first presentation and be
cause of the extreme popularity Of the
production, "The Yokohama Maid,"
the musical drama presented by the
itudents of the Willamette school of
music, last week,, will be repeated a
the near future, it was announced to
day. .". '.'.!.,..
The date for the event was tenta

The production met with exception
al favor, the audience being enthusi

formers. It was because of the many
requests for a repetition of the per
formance, that the authorities- in
charge of the play have consented to
