March 24, 1917, continued

Editor’s note: There was no March 25, 1917, paper.


Owing to the rapid spread of measles during the past week, the local board of health has deemed it advisable to close the Lincoln school for a period of two weeks.

It is requested that during that period, children who have been attending this school shall remain away from the play grounds of the other schools of the city. Also, it is requested that they do not visit the public library, moving picture theaters, churches, Sunday schools or any indoor gatherings.

It is hoped that parents will cooperate with the board of health in seeing that these requests are carried out


The Medford center of the Drama league announces the public production of three one-act plays in St. Mark's hall on Friday evening, March 30 at 8 o'clock.

The cast of the first play, which is Lord Dusaney's "The Lost Silk Hat," includes Messrs Hamill, Alfred Carpenter, Murdock, Carroll Carpenter and Hill. This comedy is one of the best for amateurs and the casting has been unusually fortunate.

Mrs. Arnold Scudder and Mr. S. V. Beckwith will present Alfred Sutro's "Open Door."

Mrs. F. H. Cowles and Fritz Newhall will be seen in "Just as Well," by Harley Manners.

The Amateur Play Committee, which has charge of the production is made up of Mrs. Frank Preston, chairman; Mrs. P. W. Hamill, Miss Bullis, Miss Hubbard and Mrs. Leonard Carpenter. It is the aim of this committee to give at least one performance each year. In larger circles plays are produced about once in six weeks, and this policy has been the means of increasing the interest in the little theaters, which are rapidly springing up all over the country and which have been found to have a very decided effect upon the legitimate drama.

Tickets are on sale at Brown's and the Medford Book Store, at $.50 each.
