Fat Man In Floppy Hat,
With 'Firefly* Baton, Runs
Battle Thro a Megaphone
THE BLOWS of carpenters' hammers driving home the
final nails in the gigantic stage mingled with the crash
of warfare and the shrieks of refugees fleeing across the
fields of Flanders before the Germans at the stadium last
It was the first full-dress rehearsal of "The Wayfarer,"
the first performance of which will be given Saturday night.
"The Wayfarer" assumed form and color last night for the
first time. And even the thousands who take part in it
gasped with awe at the wonder and magnitude of it.
A heavy-set man in n broad, floppy straw hat, stood on a
small raised platform many yards back from the stage. In
one hand he held a megaphone, in the other a baton with a
tiny electric light on the end of it.
Surrounding him on the field of the stadium was a chorus
of 3,000 men and women, lie was flanked on either side by
two grand pianos.
In front of him—beyond range of his voice except via
megaphone was "Dad"
Wagner's special orchestral
band, organized especially for
"The Wayfarer."
On the stage was a woman,
also with a megaphone. When
the man in the floppy hat
boomed an order across the
field, the woman would boom
a reply back. It was like two
sea captains hailing one an
other across a considerable
expanse of water.
The man was Montgomery
Lynch, producer and director
of the pageant.
"Hit IKJWNI" he boomed. "Stop

'How The Wayfarer Was

Written Complete in One Night in

Written Especially for The Star
THH »tory of the birth of the pageant. "The Wayfarer," Is Koon

the Centennary oelehniUon which «ai; to tuke place In Culumbun,

The central feature of that celebration was to have been a great

pageant wax available.
A year had elapsed In preparation for the pageant, but at the
crucial moment no manuscript commensurate with the significance
of the occasion wax at hand.
It was a desperate situation. One Friday night I was tos.slm;
on my bed In the Savoy hotel, pondering over the problem. At
the time my own Temple Chorus In Seattle wus rehearsing 'The
Messiah" In preparation for Raster.
Suddenly there flashed into my mind the Idea, why not drama
tlze Handel's "Messiah"?
I rot out of bed and begun to make notes. My blood was
on fire. All niglit long I laughed, crfcd, prayed and toiled.
I heard the guns In Flanders fields, saw the captives In
llabylon, the coming of the Christ, the Triumphal Killry, Cal
vary, the Hesurrertlon, and finally the trluinphal procession
of the natkUs when right should triumph over wrong.
Portions of Scripture were Jotted down. *>ther portions of dialogue
written, and notes made on the music. I. who had no theatrical
experience whatnoever, wo* drawing sketches of the stage plan as

Foreign Workers Who Picked Melons
for Lower Wage Than Whites Are
Driven From Town—Hundreds of
Others Are Now Fleeing Region
TURLOCIC, Cal., July 20.—A Japanese
exodus was on here today*
Following deportation last night of 01
Japanese melon pickers here, between 500
and 700 Japanese laborers today were flee
ing from the wrath of members of the white
itinerant fruit pickers' and packers' union
whose jobs they had usurped.
Aroused by failure of the Turlock chamber of com
merce to sanction a boycott against the Japanese,
raiding parties at midnight loaded 68 Japanese onto
trucks and drove them out of town.
The Japanese were taken to Keyes, an isolated station,
where they were loaded onto a northbound train.
The Turlock men were angered by the fact that Orientals,
working at lower wages, had forced whites out of jobs as
fruit workers. The boycott would have been directed at all
producers who employed Japanese labor.
The deportations are said to have been effected principally
for the purpose of preventing between 200 and 300 Japanese
laborers from coming into the Turlock district as melon
The raidegs were masked. They deported all the Japanese
they found except those who could produce land leases.
The trouble is an outcome of a dispute between the "melon
growers and the white melon pickers, the latter being or
ganized in a- union. The union rate for picking meloris is 25
cents a crate. The Japanese laborers have been picking
melons for 16 cents a crate.
The farmers of the Turlock district were planning to im
port between 200 and 300 additional Japanese laborers, it
is said.
It is charged that the deportations were conceived by the
white workers in order to prevent this move and to frighten
Japanese laborers away.
About 400 Japanese laborers recently arrived here to work
during the fruit season. About 300 more were under con
tract and were beginning to arrive.
Protest was made yesterday to the Chamber of Commerce
by W. C. Cook, representing the Fruit Pickers' Union, stat
ing that the Japanese, because of the small wages for which
