Stage Success At Lyceum Is Well Received A . . - sincere, lovable performance fit iane Cowls great stagre success, "Smilin Through," is given by the Lyceum stock company as their offering: to Ithaca the first half of this week. The play is. very well don?. Those who liked Jane Cowl in this immortal story will like Jane Hastings in the same role. Those who look for uniformly capable acting and expert stapre direction will have little fault to find with this presentation. And those who are susceptible to deep pathos and plowing romance which includes us all cannot but weep and laugh at this sweet story of love and hate. Ralph Hayes and Jane Hastings are certainly the most salient factors In the decided success of the performance. Hayes comes to the footlights with a surprising display of dramatic ability, and plays up to the full capacity of his role as John Carerct, the aged uncle who is nursing an old grudge and an old love. This Is prob--ably the most "appropriate vehicle he has yet been given in Ithaca, and his portrayal of it is superb. Jane Hastings rises to new heights of histrionic power and captures the affection of her audience, as Kathleen Dungannon, and again as the Moon--eyeen Clare of a former generation. She has a subtle ability to reach deep Into the emotions arid bring out almost forgotten throbs of the heart. Her char-actristic sweetness of demeanor, her charm of personality, her ability to put youth and sparkle into her lines, explain in large part the success of this her latest achievement. Miss Hastings, too. has been most appropriately cast. James West plays onnosite her as Kenneth Wayne, ana does It with a praiseworthy accent on the oualitles of n masculine lead for which he is so well fitted. Military uniform, be is said, becomes mm unusually well. Douglas Hope has become a favorite with Lvceum patrons, and maintains that status with no let-down in the part of Owen Harding, crony of John Carteret. "Smilin Through" is a romance or pathos, of enduring love, and of hate that, in the end, gives way to love. Because an old man mourns the love of his youth and harbers a family feud for the loss of that love, two young people are kept apart. In the storv is just enough of the mystic, of the 'odor of old lavender to sever it from stark reality"and make it a true r0mhrcostumIng of a half.century ago. the beautiful lighting effects, and the scenery of the play contribute greatly in effect and are a tribute to the tage management and direction "Smilin Through" will be presented again tonight, and tomorrow matinee and night, at the Lyceum Theater. von ran telephone your classified ads to The Journal-News- Dial Z77 Mr. Leon D.

Jay Phillips of Slaterville Springs was elected president, Merrill Curry of Jacksonville as vice president, Harvey C. Loomis of Dryden as secretary and Fred Dorn of the Coddington road, as treasurer. During the business session which followed a number of policies for the coming year were adopted and the program of activities outlined in a general way. It was decided that the annual membership fee should be re duced from three to two, dollars and a goal of at least 750 members in 1926 has been set. Personal service is to be the motto of the bureai next year and "special emphasis is to be given to poultry culling, much the same-as it was given during this year to tuberculosis erad "jation work Every member of the bureau will be able to have his flocks eulled free of charge during ana it Is hoped to examine at least 25.-000 birds. As a follow-up to the Intensive tu berculin testing which has been under way in the las few months, the bureau plans next year to carry on an extensive v advertising campaign to bring attention to the clean animals in this county and in an effort to build up the dairy industry here. Alfalfa Demonstrations. In addition to this service, it is. proposed by the bureau to establish In each of the towns of the county at least three or four practical demonstrations with alfalfa, makiftg use"of plots ranging about three acres in size. Cow' culling clubs fors the purpose of getting rid of "boarder cows" will also be fostered by the bureau, to replace the old cow testing associations, and further improve the quality of stock here. A complete explanation of htese clubs will be published later. The annual membership drive of the bureau began today, with bureau workers busy throughout the county in lining up 1926 members. The bureau officials point to their record of the past year in behalf of the dairymen and others, and are confident that this exhibition of real service to farmers will result in an increased membership in 1926.
