Eugene Students To
Present Drama ai
Grand On Friday;
Seat Sale Good
Critics who claim to be "In the
know" a claim to which critics
frequently lay hold insist that
Max Figraan and his co-workers
who once presented "Nothing But
the Truth," may well have a wor
ry when they consider the success
which the University of Oregon
seniors are having in staging that
vehicle. Salem play-goers will
have an opportunity to Judge He
merits for themselves tomorrow
night when will be offered at
the Grand theater.
In Eugene the seniors played to
two packed houses, and play re
porters on both Eugene newspa
pers laid the drama had the pro
fessional air. They further set
forth that the college folk's presen
tation was equally as good as the
average road show. Those per
sons who reside in Salem through
out the year will have difficulty
in deciding this for themselves
for they are seldom accorded the
privilege of witnessing a good road

"Nothing But the Truth," which
was first given to the American
public with Mr. Figman in the
leading role, is a comedy-drama

ly of the laugh-provoking variety.
The original production had a long
run In New York city.

Fans Due for Treat
at Lively Session;
Scores of Rooters
to Back Visitors
Indications are that baseballs
won't be the only objects tossed
around at Oxford park next Sun
day afternoon when the Salem
Senators step on the same diamond
with the Albany nlae for the
third time this season. Raspber
ries, fits and scar - will also be
thrown if aught .ay be judged
from the performance of spectators
at the previous two session.
Reports from Albany state that
the visiting team will visit Salem
accompanied by a few score rabid
fans who are willing to bet rep
utations that victory wil be theirs.
Salem supporters are equally con
fident that any bacon availed will
not be carried back to Albany.
Each team has one a game and on
Sunday's contest rest the laurels.
"Speck" Keene, star-bagger who
worked with Hayes' nine last Sun
day will be In an Albany uniform
Sunday, but it is possible that
"Lefty" Llnd, former Oregon star,
will be on the initial cushion for
Salem. Reinhart and "Home
Hun" Knudsen. also of the Eugene
school, will be on the local nine.
That Sunday's game probably
will be the biggest drawing card
of the season is held by manager
Hayes to be a certainty. Disap
pointment at the size of recent
crowds has been expressed by mem
bers of the team, but It is thought
that the park wil be jammed by
2:30 Sunday afternoon.
Hayes said today he will an
nounce tomorrow who the "dark
horse" is who will he placed on
the mound for Salem.
Dempsey Hard at It For BoufcWith Carpentier
First Wool Sales
At Over 15 Cents
Pendleton, Or., June 2. Prices
ranging from 15 to 19 cents a
pound were paid for wool In the
annual sale of the farmers' pool
at Pilot Rock, held Wednesday.
About 200,000 pounds were offer
ed for sale and of this amount ap
proximately 50,000 pounds were
sold. The total amount offered
for sale this year is a marked de
crease over that ' offered In past
years and is accounted for by Mac
Hoke, secretary of the Oregon
Wool Growers' association, by the
fact that many growers have al
ready solid or consigned their
clips or are not ready to sell.
The highest price paid wos 19
cents, this figure being paid by
the American Woolen company of
Lowell, Mass., for 11,00 pounds of
the Edwards clip.

Affairs of Lodge
Sharp criticism for the autocra
tic manner in which the affairs
of the Neighbors of Woodcraft
have been administered by Carrie
C. Van Orsdell, grand guardian of
the order, Is contained in a report
based on a recent examination of
the organization which has just
been released by A. C. Barber,
state insurance commissioner.
The report declares that the con
stitjutlon and by-laws of the or
der are so drawn as to give the
"rand (riindlan m n.,,.' i-it-
Ity over the affairs of the order
including uulii lOcul CU'v.m a rnui
as the grand circle. Technically
the order complies with the law
as to a representative form of gov
ernment but it does not appear to
do so in practice, the report sets'
"All of the regular and special
committees are appointed by the
grand guardian and the members
of the committees on legislation
and laws are members of the grand
circle sessions," the . reports reads.
"We are Informed that the amend
ments to the constitution and by
laws are prepared by the grand
guardian and then presented to
the committee on laws, approved
and presented to the grand circle
Expenditures from the general
fund of the order have been out
of proportion to the Income of the
fund, the report states, adding that
"apparently proper care has not
been taken to keep the expenses of
the general fund within th in
come of the fund.
The report declares that extra
ordinary expenses were Incurred
from the Woodcraft home fund
and substantial expenditures In
both time and money In efforts to
have the laws In the different
states repealed relative to the re
quirements pertaining to the sol
vency of fraternal orders without
any favorable results. The man
agement apparently Is opposed to
the order taking action to comply
with those laws, according to the
In view of these conditions and
the condition of unrest and dis
sentton found in the order the ex
aminers in their report recommend
"that the constitution be revised
to eliminate much of the arbitrary
authority given to the grand guar

Funds Run Short
Butte, Mont., June 2. The
Butte Bulletin, established as a
daily evening newspaper in the
fall of 1917, suspended publica
tion last night because of financial
difficulties. In a statement by
R. B. Smith, manager, it was an
nounced that the publication oved
$21,000; that it had assets amoun
ting to $50,000 and that it hoped
to resume publication of the daily
in a month. In the meantime It
will issue a small weekly. The
Bulletin had the support of the
Montana Federation of Labor and
of many radicals in the north
west. It championed the One Big
Union Idea. Jack Carney, who
came here last, year from Duluth,
where he edited a radical publica
tion was assistant editor of the
Bulletin until last month. It was
reported that he returned east last
month to face trial. Before com
ing to Montana he had been ar
rested for alleged violation of the
espionage act. He had been re
leased on bail.
San Francisco, June 2. In the
case of cherries, canners are pur
suing the same policy as that fol
lowed in dealing with strawberries
asparagus and other seasonal field
and orchard products when har
vesting of these crops started.
They refuse to do business.
Cherry growers have been given
no encouragement by the packers,
and there is no wonder that they
are anxious concerning the disposi
tion of their fruit this year.
In the interest of self-protection
the cherry growers of the Sebasto
pol district organized, paid a visit
to the main office in San Fran
cisco of one of the largest fruit
packing corporations of the state,
in the hope of arranging for the
sale of the combined production of
the Sebastopol orchardists.
Maddox declared that the as
sociation had for sale 20 tons of
Tartarian cherries, 800 tons of
Royal Annes and 50 tons of Roch
forts, offered th entire lot ana
requested the naming of a price.
The answer to his proposition was
that the packing corporation was
not interested, and that no price
would be named, In view of the
fact that there exists a substan
tial carry over of 1920 canned
canned goods on which a great
deal of money has been lost.
