The robberies are laid at the door
of an alleged coast-wide gang of poll'
thieves, who, detectives say, have raid
ed dentists' offices and jewelry Mores
in every large city on the coast, taking
nothing but gold.
Tho thieves unlocked every door, evi
dently using pass keys. The heaviest
bolts and the most inrticatc locks failed
to stop them.
The gang, according to the police,
began operations in ralt Lake. They
next visited San Francisco. Dentists'
associations and detective agencies rent
out warnings that raids by this gang
of thieven might be expected. Meager
descriptions of one nr two of the rob
bers have been obtained.
Ten offices in the I'ittock block were
robbed, but the Wills Dental labora
tory, which contained gold worth 1,000
was untouched.

Organized Saturday
The Marion County Jersey Cuttle club

meeting held Saturday in the audituri-j morning.
Saturday, April 22, is u (lute which nil

and also keep open. Because on that
dnte the city of Sulem, through the
agency of its Women's club, will con
tribute its part in the nation wide ob
servance of the Shakespeare tercenten
ary. It is perhaps too broad a statement
to say that everybody is Interested In
Shakespeare, and in what Shakespeare
means to all who speak tho English
language, but it is not too much to say
that everybody ought, to be interested;
and it is primarily for those who ought
to be interested that the Women's club
is going to present one of the Burd's
most 'fascinating comedies, "A Midsum
mer 'Night's Dream," at the Grand
next Saturday afternoon and evening.
