The Greater Medford Club is just now preparing to use all its influence to make a fine success of the splendid entertainment, "Queen Esther," to be given Monday and Tuesday evenings at the Page theater. There is no question as to this being an exceedingly fine production, given under the direction of Mr. Howes of Los Angeles, who had a long experience with this and other musical work. The stage settings, color scheme of costumes, fine dramatic situations of the story are all managed in such a manner that there is not a dull moment in the performance of two hours duration. The public is invariably surprised that such fine results can be obtained from the use of the local people, many of whom have had no special training in these lines.
The first rehearsal at the Page theater will be held Friday at 3:30, and the whole work is well in hand for the rendition. A fine chorus for the flower scene has been formed from the pupils of the Washington and Jackson schools and will make a beautiful scene directly in contrast with the more serious work of the adults.
LOS ANGELES, Cal., May 7 — Brunettes as well as blondes are entitled to citizenship if they are Caucasians.
This was the decision of Superior Judge Morrison in the case of Sahkarem Ganesh Pandit, a high caste Hindu university graduate, doctor of laws and lecturer.
When he applied for citizenship papers the Hindu was informed by the federal authorities that he must prove his eligibility. Morrison pronounced the brief he filed to be the most complete and comprehensive he had ever seen.
