The Theatres . MISS WARD'S WARDROBE PRO V E S I N E X HA1STA HEE Fannie Ward, popular l.asky star, who will he seen in the Easky-Paramount production "The School for Husbands" at the Idaho theatre on Friday and Satur day, has a wardrobe which is a Uasky the beautiful and studio mystery, as It seems inexhaust ible. For any occasion which pre sents Itself. Miss Ward has only to delve into its depths and bring forth gowns the like of which have never before been seen at tlie studio. It is never known when she replenishes this supply, but she is always able to produce the latest and most charm ing frocks, and in her forthcoming production, "The School for Hus bands," she has more than surpassed her usual cleverness. When in a pic ture she decides to dress up, out comes tiie most marvelous gowns with their accompanying jewels. One of her many beautiful creations is a sable and silk opera cloak which must have cost many thousands of dollars. No one at the studio had heard of this marvelous garment, nor had Miss Ward mentioned purchasing It, but suddenly she appeared and every other woman at the studio dropped what she was doing—and stood and marveled. ORPHEUM THEATRE HAS BIG WEEK-END PROGRAM Following up the same high stand ard which has been the rule at the Orpheum theatre during the past. Manager Anderson has scheduled a program for Thursday, Friday and Saturday, which promises to bo even of better quality than usual. Leading the vaudeville attractions for this week-end are Otto and Bryan, two musical comedians, with a na tural and irrlsistable ability to fill their audience with laughter. They have a clever skit based on those two popularity winners, mirth and melody and their work along the circuit has received the highest kind of praise from even the critics whose main liability is an ingrowing and chronic grouch. Following this act comes Allen and Moore in a clever combination of bright songs and brilliant steps. Their act comes highly recommended and their program of footwork contains many new r startlers. These two acts are scheduled as two feature acts direct from the big Hippodrome cir cuit. Thursday, Friday and Saturday matinee, Robert Harron is featured in a five-part Triangle play entitled "An Old Fashioned Young Man." There will be a complete change of pictures Saturday night with the same acts. BIG SEVEN REEL PRODUCTION SHOWN AT THE ISIS NEXT WEEK Monday and Tuesday the Idaho the atre will show The California Motion Picture Corporation's greatest pro^ duction, "The Unwritten Law," really one of the biggest motion picture pro ductions to reach Twin Falls in some months. Two of America's great stars are featured in this drama. Beatriz Michelena plays the role of Kate Wilson and the leading male of role is played by Anderew Robinson. "The Unwritten Law" was written by Edwin Milton Royle, author of "The Squaw Man" and other stories. The play is in seven stupendous acts that follow the stage success very closely. The story is wholesome and big and develops through breathless suspense one of the most thrilling climaxes ever attained in motion picture art. An advance synopsis would detract from one's later pleasure in seeing it, since much of the Interest of the development of the plot in the screen hangs on a thread of mystery and sur prise that is spun out, with clever producing touches, to the very end of the story. If it were necessary to pick one out standing feature from the many ele ments of greatness that this produc tion embodies, it would unhesitatingly be the emotional power of Beatriz Michelena's acting. Miss Michelena's impersonation of Kate Wilson in this picture is her greatest achievement since forsaking opera for the screen. Every critic who has reviewed the firm has declared her work a marvel in both power and finish. BOD ROADS DAY IS n Keystone States To Make Drive For Crops—Butter Waste Warning F'rom Washington. (United Press) HARRISBURG, Pa., May 24—Orig inally intended as Pennsylvania's third annual "Good Roads Day," to day became a statewide "Farm and Garden Day" by proclamation of Gov ernor Brunbaugh. War had not been declared when this was designated as "Good Roads Day." W'ith the declaration, state and local highway authorities began to rush road improvement. In changing the character. Governor Brunbaugh remarked that food had now become the greatest consideration. The governor himself will do "his bit" in farm and garden. WASHINGTON. May 24—If every one of the 20.000,000 American house holds should waste 1-4 ounce of but ter dally, the loss would be 114.062,000 pounds a year, the product of over half a million cows, according to de partment of agriculture figures to day. If only one In every 100 homes wasted that 1-4 pound, the loss would total over 1,000,000 pounds annually. The department issued these statistics to show why no butter whatever should be wasted. Starting Friday. May 26, the Auto Truck Service will run to Artesian City Natatorium, leaving Rogerson Hotel 7:30 p. m. Fare tor round trip, $1.50. Phone for particulars 692.

A timely proclamation by Mayor Bracken, published in another column, calls attention to this day, emphasizes that for which it stands, and invites the participation of our citizens gen erally toward making it all that it should be. The need of more freight trains which the Council of National Defense has at last arranged to provide for, has long been pointed out by Wander ing Willie and Dusty Rhodes. It might be a good idea for some of these anti-submarine device inven tors to sink one or two submarines first and talk to the reporters after ward. r V o. Civ e ■O :® I O m of > O / [r o. \* O/ o, iS|r o, a. t.K ' » ; New Footwear Traveling The Path of Fashion The recent arrivals have made our assortments most complete. The lasts are the prettiest ever made and the leathers are most beautiful in their soft wearability. And there is also some of the new white lace boots in white Reinskin. Every lady pays particular attention to the footwear and it's part of our store service to see that she is comfortably fitted and fashionably shod. At the present prices style can not be the only consid eration nor yet comfort or price but there must be that other element of service. These are all combined in our shoes and combined with good service and courteous treat ment make for lasting satisfaction to both the customer and ourselves. How Much Leather Will The War Consume ? Certainly it has taken vast amounts and when you think of the amount more it will take one does not won der at the higher prices and one does not have to figure far to realize that the limit has not been reached. Our shoes were purchased before the recent advances and nowhere east or west are they underpriced. Economy would dictate the purchase of more than one pair. And About Children's Shoes They don't change much in style but they do in price. We still have quite a stock of children's shoes bought quite some time ago when shoes were much cheaper and we are still selling them at the old prices.
