'A Midsummer Night's Dream'
To Be Presented On Play
writer's Birthday
All the highbrows in town will be at
the Grind next Saturday evening to
hear the interpretive' presentation of
"A Midsummer Night's Dream" in
honor of the 300th anniversary of
Shakespeare. However this doesn't
prejudice you .igainst the entertain
ment. The highbrows have no monopo
ly on Shakespeare, and "A Midsum
mer Night's Dream" isn't a highbrow
Everyone these days is presumed to
know Shekespeire. Outside the liible,
his plays are the most important and
useful literature we have. But listen,
Vou don't have to be a literary shark,
or anything like that in order thorough
ly to enjoy a Shakespeare play. As a
matter of fact the ordiniry theatre
goer will get more amusement out of a
Shakespeare comedy than a college
English professor will; because the Eng
lish professor (that is, the general run
of him) looks at Shakespeare from an
aeademie angle, ind forgets entirely
the fact that Shekespeare was a flesh
and blood playwright who made a ser
ious business, of making flesh-and-blood
andiences laugh. English professors
don't laugh. They smile sometimes, but
they don't really laugh and "A Mid
summer Night's Dream" was written
to be laughed with.
Shakespeare was an actor himself,
and he understood exactly how to con
struct a play to make it "go over" to
any ordinary, everyday audience. In
other words, he wrote his pliys for the
stage; not for the literary dissecting
roon. The fact that Shakespeare was
a literary genius, aud tiut he clothed
his dramatic ideas in the greatest liter
ature of all time, does not detract l
whit from the activity of his plays.
Outside their literary merit, and after
300 years of performances, the plays
of Shakespeare stand alone on their
ability to entertain, and on th.it score
alone they will stack up high ubovc
any and all the modern plays.
Don't be afraid of Shakespeare. If
you have hitherto entertained the idea
th.it he was ponderous, or obsolete, or
hard to understand, come around to the
Grand next Saturday afternoon or even
ing and hear "A Midsummer Night's
Dream," and you will discover that
George Cohan or George Ado has noth
ing on Hill Shakespeare in the matter
of nuking you Inugh.
Improvements Added to
Methodist Pipe Organ
The pipe organ in the First Methodist
church is undergoing several improve
ments and additions that will add ma
terially to its power and brilli.incy.
Two new couplers have been added to
the swell organ" ami also a sott pedal
base stop, the Lieblich Gcdickt.
The swell organ, formerly with 61
notes, will now have TA, and an extra
octave has been added to four stops,
the open diapason, harmonic flute, stop
ped diapason and salicionnl.
The volume of the organ as well as
the opportunities for brilliant combi
nations have been greatly increased by
the Addition of the swell unison stop,
the swell super octave coupler and the
swell sub octave coupler.
The motor has also been removed
from the underneath lower floor to an
upper floor. These additions to the or
gan will not be noticeable in any way
in the npepaiance of the organ lis the
front pipes will remain as heretofore.
The work is being douo by L. M. (.'lark
of Seattle, who has been in the organ
business for tiie pAst 20 years ou the
coast, having repaired an organ that
was in the church 'M years ago. The
present organ wus iustallcd about 11

News From Monmouth

During the last "week the normal
school received several visits from the
alumni who are home for Knitter vaca

(Continued From Page One.)
W. Al Jones, the former secretary of
the state fair board, was the first wit
ness called for the state. - llr. Jones es
tablished a few formal facts aud went
into the description of the tickets used
and the methods of handling them at
length. Finally his testimony lend up
to Saturday, October 2, 1915, upon
which date Simpkius whs arrested and
this led up to the alleged confession
that Turner was said to have made to
James Boss and to Mr. Jones. At this
time Attorney John A. Carson, for the
detensc,moved that the jury be taken
from the courtroom and not allowed to
hear the testimony relatively to the con
fession as he intended to make a motion
to have the testimony excluded from
the trial.
The court ruled that the jury should
be taken from the court room and then
Jones continued his testimony relative
to the night of the arrest of Simpkins
and the bringing of Turner to the po
lice station.
Jones Tells of Arrest.
Mr. Jones reluted at length how he
took two fair grounds officers, Ross
and Roller in his machine and then
picked tip Officer Percy M. Varney
of the Salem police force and went to
the residence of Frank A. Turner, the
father of Rex Turner. Jr. Ross rang
the door bell and was admitted to Rex
Turner's room. Bex Turner then ac
companied the officers to the police
station where after a short controversy
Ross stated on the stand that he told
Turner the best thing was to "tell the
truth" and related how they had se
cured a written confession from .simp
kins. Mr. Jones then said:
"I went into the little office hi the
east wing of the city hall where I saw
Turner and I said 'well Rex, what did
you do it for' and Itex answered 'I
guess I needed the money.'
"He then told mo that he would give
me a check for the total amount of the
shortage if I would only name the
"I told him I could not do this as it
was not up to me to settle it as it was
the state's money. Turner said I could
either accept tho money to make up the
snortagc or scnu nun over the road and
that it was up to me to decide, and be
again offered to write mo out a check
u I would state what the amount
Mr. Ross was next culled to the stand
and told of his connection with the af
fair and the defense nn cross examina
tion asked particularly about whether
or not the impression was left with
Turner that he was under arrest. Boss
said he did not think Turner knew he
was connected with the fairground po
lice but that he told Turner to "come
along that they wanted him."
Mr. Keller was then called to the
stand nnd told practically tho snme
story as had been told by Mr. Koss.
Turner Takes Stand.
Rex Turner, the defendant then took
tho stand in his own behalf and said
that Ross cursed him and walked up
and down in the office. He said Ross
told hiin that ho had brought disgrace
upon his family and that he had better
tell the truth as Simpkins had confess
ed. He said he was almost convinced
that they intended to take him to The
penitentiary without delay. On cross
examination District Attorney Ringo
asked Turner if, as an attorney, he did
not know that a man always had a trial
before he was sent to the pen and Tur
ner replied that he was so badly fright
ened that he did not think of his right.;.
Following this testimony it was ruled
t by Judge Kelly that the confession al
leged to have been made by Turner
could not be introduced as evidence and
that all evidence relative to the alleged
confession should m excluded. The
jury was then recalled to the courtroom
and Jones continued his testimony rela
tive to the book keeping of the fair.
The following is the complete jury:
