Last night at the Grand theatre
EkE Commissioner Ira L. Smith was
W:' booked for a four minute speech.
"Doc" March's show troupe had
?> been at the Grand all week, hut it
< ? was Mr. Smith's first trip to the Grand
k" during that time.
Mr. March was taking care of the
jpt '^passengers" as they entered the
Y door. Mr. Smith passed in with the
[i, line and stopped just a moment to
announce his errand.
j. Both men exchanged glances, then
.$.* stared a questioning stare. Any boy
of the street might have yelled
5J, "well, what the h you locking
Si at!".
But It didn't go that far. Smith
p and March spoke a few words, culminating
in the heartiest hand-shake
either had enjoyed in a long while.
"Doc" March and Ira Smith were
? college friends. Both attended >lt.
Union College at Alliance. Ohio, in
1914. Mr. Smith was so impressed
with the meeting that he prefaced
his four minute talk on "the income
taxT with a laudation of Mr. March
and his company.
In the foyer they recalled boyhood
days; the days when "Doc" March
. was the most loyal rooter for Mt.
? ' Union's prowess in athletics. The
rivalry between contending teams
were always of the hottest, though
the feeling never hitter. "Doc" was
y the most peace-loving man in college.
It but in the "scraps" he was a leading
factor. When a fight was threatening
"Doc" would hand the "bully" of
5; the opposite side his card with the
request that they meet in "mortal
combat" at his hotel. "Mind if you
jfe don't show up. I'll be after you." became
a favorite expression of the
now famous showman. Only once
did the "bluff" fail to work, and what
happened that once was not fully
gathered, other than "Doc" couldn't
be expected to lick the whole crowd.
These two boyhood friends are Just
the happiest men in town today.
Hipp Bill Much improved
Mersereau's Company.. "The SubV
marine Girls" gave a much better bill
at the Hippodrome last night than the
one which introduced this organziation
to Fairmont. The comedy is Oe*
cidedly better, and save for some
"hokum" that might well be loft oat
of the work of the Paramount Four
there is no reason for registering
complaint. The opening, with Lew
Kellner and the chorus, is as "peppy"
aa needs be. Excellent song selections
were Introduced and the medley
of old time melodies by the quarran

. scheduled headliner for today. Tyrone

all it is probably the most spectacular
sea picture yet presented here. As aa
added attraction Charlie Chaplin in
"By the Sea'* and special music are
included in the program.
Continued Success of "Merry Makers'*
AI. Warner. June Mullin. Eddie
Dettmaa. Ruth Wheeler and Don
Macrnillan were the high lights of the
cast in "For the Love of Mike," which
was presented nt the Grand last night
, to the largest audience of the week.
! The very nature of the play permitted
the introduction of several
mighty good specialties and brought
the splendid chorus into more promij
ncnce than it has yet enjoyed.
i A "pick-out"' number in the closing
i act demonstrated that the "stars" arc
not all in the cast. At loast six of the
j girls introduced specialties that were
I "acts'* in themselves.
} The musical numbers were unusualj
ly catchy anil the song "No Place for
' .Me*' by Tom Dcpuc, tvas a pronounced
j "hit."
With the nightly increase in the
size of the audience it is evident that
local theatre goers are awakening to
the fact that March's Musical Merry
: Makers is an aggregation rarely met
' with. and the likes probaDi7 never dc-i
, fore encountered at popular prices. I

Hart Picture and Benefit.
One would think that every thrill,
eveiy act of reckless daredevHtry, had
been injected in William S. Hart photodramas.
However, this famous Western
character always figures in some
new and startling adventures.
For instance, in "The Narrow Trail."
the initial Ince-Artcraft picture, which
will be seen at the Nelson today, Hart
portrays an outlaw who falls under the
influence of a beautiful girL He loves
her with all the desperate passion of
which his wild nature is capable, "hna

his source of income Is naturally shut

be held in a nearby city. A cash prize

"jump in the saddle and away" race?
and the outlaw determines to enter,

so he knows ho is taking a tremendous
risk, as the peculiarly marked pony is j
known to the sheriff and his deputies: J
but goaded by necessity he tafces a :
chance, and in the presence or a crowa ;
leaps into the saddle.
It Is during this wild ride with its I
throngs of contesting cowboys that '<
excitement rises to its heighest pitch. 1
