Gordon who appears with the Petri-
Forbes company, hns been one ofl the
biggest successes in tho last decade as
a reador, impersonator, and entertain

of tho unusual flu conditions and will
be announced in those columns later.
One of tho members of unusual in
terest will be the entertainment lec
ture by Burnell Ford, the electrical wiz
ard aud inventor. Many of his experi

world and. several of his . inventions
have been used- by the war. department
in the past year. i. . ; -.
The biff, lecture event on the course

Connell, the great southern orator. His
lecture, "Tho Devil and the Kaiser",
has .been delivered irom one end ot tne

in the cities and in the camps, and is
credited with being ono of the greatest
platform creations of the period.
Besides the Petri-Forbes Concert
company two other musical events are
scheduled for the course, thd Sam Lew
is company and the Schubert Sextotte.
Louis O. Runner of the Chicago Critic
says: "I consider the Schubert Sex
tette the finest entertainment orches
tra now before the publdt;" The or
ganization consists of six charming!
young women with splendid ability as
musicians and entortainers. The Sam
Lewis company is an organization of
four artists which has won an emi
nent place on tho America concert
platform. Sain Lewis, the noted Welsh
tenor, who heads the company, has a
voice of unusual ranee and power. His
coming will be eagerly anticipated by
all Salem musie lovers.
Bess Gearhart Morrison, Chautauqua
and lyccum favorite for twenty years,
rounds out tho list of attractions. Mrs.
Morrison is ono of the highest priced
entertainers on the platform and it is
doubtful if she has an equal as an ar
tist who can please any and all classes

Archibald is the man who was de
tained by British authorities and found
to bo carrying letters for Von Papen
and Dr. Dumba, then Austrian ambas
sador to the United States. This inci
dent led to Dumba'a recall.
Bielaski submitted a roceipt signed
by Archibald under dute of April 21,
1915. It acknewlcdged payment of $5,

tion workers in this country, Bielaski
said. Heading from this memorandum,
Bielaski said that it suggested the
H.ahadsak, a newspaper published in
Cleveland, be used to reach munition
workers in Bethlehem, Pa., and the
midwest. Bielaski said in this connec
tion that William Warm, former edit
or of Szabadsag, had written a movie
scenario, entitled "Blood is Thicker
than Water," and that the Austrian
embassy had contributed $250 toward
financing the picture. It showed Aus
