"Forty-Five Minutes From Broad
way," George M. Cohan's celebrated
play IP which Charles Ray is now
appearing in a picturization as a
' First National attraction is one of
the most human stories Mr. Ray has
ever produced. It takes its title
from its locale, New Rochelle, which
is approximately 45 minutes from
Broadway and 42nd street. New
York city.
The story of "Forty-Five Minutes
From Broadway" has to do with the
adventures of Kid Burns, an ex-prize \
fighter from the East Side of New !
York city, whose friend, Tom Ben
nett, suddenly finds himself heir to
a fortune and an estate in New
Rochelle and sends for the Kid to act
as his advisor. Upon reaching New
Rochelle. the K'd encounters a series
of adventures arid "the only girl'
—named Mary—and this combina
tion furnishes material for one of
the most delightful pictures Mr. Ray
has ever produced. And this pic-:
ture, by the way, is the first Inde
pendent production made by Mr. Ray
in his own studio and it is bigger
and most costly than any, other pic
ture this taleted screen star has ever
appeared in. "Forty-Five Minutes
From Broadway" will be shown at
the Liberty theatre, March 26-27.
"Lure of Ambition," the William
Fox super production featuring
Theda Bara, wjiich comes to the
Liberty theatre March 29-30, is an
unusual as well as intensely dra
matic photoplay.
: As the title indicates, the story
% founded upon the proposition that
a woman of adequate will power can
scale any heights if she is fired by
ambition. In this case Olga Dolan.
• the role enacted by Miss Bara, is a
girl of the utmost determination to
succeed In order to compensate her
self for a vital, wrong done her by
Cyril Ralston—played by William B.
Davidson—whom she foolishly loved.
Miss Bara makes Olga Dolan one
of the most Interesting of screen
heroines. She gives- a wonderful
impersonation of the girl who Is
transformed from a trusting creature j
Into a woman of the world.
The photoplay is full of gripping
situations from the time when Olga
Dolan, the stenographer, attracts the
attention of Cyril Ralston, until Olga
becomes the fiance of the Duke of
Rutledge—a part played with much
skill by Thurlow Bergen. Others In
the cast are Amelia Gardner. Ida
Waterman, Dan Mason, Robert Paton
Oibbs, Doorthy Drake and Tammany
Young— seen here in "Check
ers." Edmund Lawrence directed
the picture. .
"The Scuttlers," in which William
Farnum comes to the Liberty theatre
■J March 31-Aprll 1, is (an absorbing
and sensational story of the sea.
William Fox, the producer, must
have gone to great expense to put
this story on the screen. A 50
--. foot ship is used for most of the
v'icenes, and this vessel is sunk far
put in the Pacific, after a series of
dramatic incidents that are gripping
-*ln the extremee. . r
The story is that of a man who

GYt Hutchlns, known to Willow
Bend as "Honest Hutch," thought
he had found 100,000 and immedi
ately began to act that way. Where
he had been a worthless town loafer,
he became in his own mind a pluto
crat, and consequently in the minds
of his fellows also.
Will Rogers plays "Honest
Hutch" in the inimitable Will Rogers
way, under the direction of Clarence
Badger. The picture was made by
Goldwyn, and comes to the Grand
theatre March 26.
How "Honest Hutch" makes a
man of himself, and uplifts his fam
ily through his effort to convince
his neighbors that he had been sav
ing money, so that he could spend
that which he had found without
causing amazing questions provides
an absorbing story. In the end.

Delightful Viola Dana, the effer
vescent little actress, will soon be
seen by local theatre-goers in the
stellar role of "The Offshore Pirate,"
the Metro production which comes
to the Grand theatre March 29-30
as the feature attraction.
In this unusual picture, which was
adapted from the story of F. Scott
Fitzgerald, as published in the Satur
day Evening Post, Miss Dana has a
part that brings out all her unusual
gifts. As Ardita Farnham, the girl
who is stolen by a modern piratical
young man, she excels her previous
The story tells of Ardita Farnham,
young, rich and beautiful, whose
heart has gone to a scheming for
eigner, who cleverly plots for her
money. Her relations realize what
a rogue he Is, but Ardita is adamant
and intends to marry him. In de
spair, they contrive a plan. Toby
Moreland, a happy-go-lucky young
fellow, boards Ardita's yacht with a
handful of cut throats, and seizes
the vessel. Out of this a romance
springs—but unexpectedly and after
thrilling happenings.
Supporting Viola Dana Is the fol
lowing excellent cast: Jack Mulhall,
as Toby Moreland; Edward Jobson,
as Uncle John Farnam; and Edward
Cecil as Ivan Nevkova, the Russian.
In "The Isle of Conquest," Norma
Talmadge's new Select special, the
charming star again demonstrates
th_t there Is no height of expression
too lofty 'or her..
Her versatility: is generously
drawn upon as she journeys
through the roles of an innocent
convent girl to an unhappy wifehood
and thence to a life of Isolation upon
a tropical island with a lone man
companion/there to find complete
happiness and contentment. Always
pleasing and capable, the star as
cends to the full height of her emo-
tlonal talents and hold, the Interest
from beginning to end.
"The Isle of Conquest," which is
doming to the Grand theatre March
81* April 1, is a fast moving drama
treating with a young girl's mar
riage to a wealthy -waster, through
the efforts of a designing mother.
Later, the yacht upon which they
are cruising, is wrecked and she
finds herself safe upon an uninhabit
ed Island with a stoker from the
ship's hold. Months of Isolation
kindles within them a mutual love
and, all hope of rescue having per
ished, they are preparing to enact
their marriage rite when suddenly
her husband appears to return her
to his world of sham. Here the cir
cumstances become tragic, conclud
ing with an unexpected and sensa
tional climax.
There are about 15,000,000 acres
of arid land yet in the United States
that can be irrigated by gravity and
for which there is water to irrigate
with. Of this amount Washington
has more than 2,000,000 acres, for
which there is an abundant water
supply. Of this immense acreage
the Columbia river project covers
more than one and three-quarters of
a million of acres—-a territory larger
than the state of Delaware —and
within its boundaries there will be
more tillable land than in any one
of the following states: Massachu
setts, Wyoming, Vermont, Arizona,
Florida, Connecticut, New Jersey or
New Mexico.
This great empire will supply 45,
--000 40-acre homes for some of the
600,000 farmer boys and girls who
each year in the United States reach
their majority and begin to search
for a place to live.
Besides the farms there will be ■
populous cities. In all, the develop- j
ment of the Columbia basin project
will bring 600,000 people to the state j
and add more than a billion dollars |
to its wealth. From this new irri
gated country 25,000 new students
will come to the State College of
Washington to be educated. The
taxable wealth added to the state will
add half a million dollars to the year
ly millage of the State College.
To the study of this great project
the State College has made liberal
contributions. Professor O. l! Wal
ler, vice president, and Hon. Peter
MacGregor, for many years a regent
of the State College, were members
of the commission. Arthur J. Turn
er, of the class of 1904, was chief
engineer. Professor F. W. Welch
and a number of our former students
were employed on the surveys. Pro
fessor Waller spent much time study-:
ing the water supply, soil, climatic
conditions, the surveys for irrigation
and drainage, canal sections, dam
sites, diversion works, and so forth.
On April 1 the new director of re-.
clamation, the Hon. Dan Scott, whose
daughters were students here in the
college, will take over the work of
the commission. And here is hop
ing he may find a way to finance' this
great project, and a promise that the
State College of Washington will
render him every assistance possible '
in his efforts to develop this great
arid empire.

The Death of "Old Hutch"
The Birth of Mr. Hutchins
Old Hutch was so dog-goned lazy that folks used to say he
v wouldn't have gumption enough to say "here" when Gabriel
blew his horn!
He was shiftless, sodden, grimy, and unloved a sudden
twitch in Fate's looming of his life made him upright, active,
and respectable.
The story of this homely miracle makes what we think is the
finest comedy ever shown in this city and the most wonderful
piece of acting since .100 Jefferson "Hip Van Winkle."
