NEA SERVICE, INC at the Saenger 'King of the Jungle" Features Buster Crabbe, Oly* mpic Swimming Champ "Kink of tho Jungle," the long- awaited film featuring the Lion Man (Buster Crabbe), opened Tuesday at the Saenger theater and regaled large audience with a film of mounting ex- citemlnt. climaxed by a terrific stampede of wild animals in the streets of a large city. Selected for the role of the Lion Man after a nation-wide search among athletes and actors, the young swimming champion proves infinitely worthy of the responsibility placed upon him. Ha is the Lion Man to the life, combining charm of personality and real acting ability with his magnificent build. He is distinctly ornameltal. but in addition, succeeds in making a believable human being out of the young man who has been brought up by lions, and who remains always more faithful to his jungle friends than lo the human.

NOW CO ON WITH TIIR STOHK CHAPTBU XL1 M RS. CURTIS shook her head. "You must be mistaken!" she exclaimed. "I'm s'fcre it couldn't have been Janet!" "All right. Where was she two . nights ago?" , ••Why—why, let me see. bile j was here in this - room with me; all evening. We were reading- no, I've got that wrong. Last night the Rldgeways were here and the night before—" Mrs. Curtis' words broke off. "Janet did go out that evening." she continued, "but she told roe she was going to the movies, so you see It must have been someone else—' Betty's laugh was sneering. "Movies—that's what she'd tell you, of course. But she wasn't at the movies when 1 saw her!" "But, Betty, 1 simply can't believe it. Why, that sort oC thing ian't at all like her! She's always so quiet and reserved." Betty's voice flamed with anger. "So you'd believe her against your own daughter, would you!" "No, no, it's not that, dear. I simply mean you must have been mistaken. I know you think it was Janet you saw but it must have been someone else. It's so easy to make mistakes like that. When she comes back I'll ask her—" "Don't do that!" Betty cut In shortly. "Do you think it she were out with a crowd of hoodlums she'd tell you about it? it j you're so sure this precious Janet is a saint I guess that's all there is to it. But if you wake up some morning and find the silverware or your diamonds gone don't blame me! I've done the best 1 could to warn you." Mrs. Curtis glanced down at the diamond ring she was wearing. "Oh, dear!" she said. "1 suppose now I will worry. But you must We have no air corps. We have a small auxiliary to the Mf and navy- We have no force to attack vital centers.— G&n.

Bruce had knowu her for a long time and he said ehe was absolutely reliable." Betty's lips formed a narrow crimson line. "Well," she said as she arose, "I'm through with the whole affair. I thought I should tell you what I saw and I have!"' She walked acroBs the room and paused, frowning. "Why in heaven's name don't you get some new draperies for this room?" she asked. "But I like them." her mother objected. "And they'll ijc; good tot a long time yet. Wnti things the way they have been Imply 1 don't like to fto to expense that Un't necessary," TtfRS.

"It's my •"•I home." she'sald,: "and it's conv fortable: I'm; perfectly Willing tor yon to have, all;: the modernl&Uc clap-trap In; your apartment you want but I warttf'my home to suit myself." Betty hnd panged before the window. She whirled suddenly: "Janet's coming," she said. "Pfom- ise me you won't say, anything about what t toldjyou. It she; was there sherd L deny-'ft /'and- if she wasn't it doesn't make any-differ ence; Promise me!" Mrs. Curtis nodded. "I'll prom Ise/' she said, "but Just the same I suppose I'll worry. Oh, dear! 1 wish you hadn't said a thing about it!" They heard the front door open and a moment later Janet appeared "Here it Is." she said, handing the book to Betty. "It took me a little while to nnd it. It was under neath some things on the dressing table. And here's the key." i Betty said, "Thanks," and ! glanced at her wrist watch, "It's time for me to bo going," she tolt her mother. "Don't forget who' you promised me." A moment later she was gone. Janet returned to her work and did not see Mrs. Curtis again until lunch. It was a quiet meal. Janet was wondering It the older woman did not feel well when Mrs. Curtis said abruptly, "Janet, why don't you ever bring any of your friends to the house? You could use'tho little room off the library for .a sitting room if you'd like." '^ "Why—thank you. 'I guess 1 just hadn't thought about it. 1 don't have very many friends." "But you're young. You've lived In Lancaster several years. You must know some young people." "Yes, of course. I've known lota of girls in offices where I've worked but the.y go away or get married or somehow you lose track of then)." "Haven't you any young men friends?" "Not many. Most of the men at •the Every Homo office were married and—well, I was always pretty busy." "I should think an attractive girl like you would have a lot of beans." • » • TANET hesitated: "I used to be J engaged," she said, "but that's all over now. There's one boy 1 go out with some times. He's the one I went to the movies with the i other night." j Mrs. Curtis said. "Oh!" and then. "Why don't you ask him to come ! here some night? I'd like to meet ; him." | "I will," Janet agreed doubtfully, j She was thinking of au evening : spent in the little room off the II- ; brary would not be particularly | cheerful. She would be self-cou | sclous and so would Jeff. It was , unusual for Mrs. Curtis to ask questions about her personal at fairs. Why bad she suddenly become so iuterested? "I'll ask him," Janet promised, and then, to change the subject, asked. "What time will you want Frederick to take you to the club house this afternoon?" "About three o'clock, I suppose.' It Mrs. Curtis were going to tlie club house ut three It meant Janet would have the rest of tlie after noon to herself. She said. "Will It be all right If 1 go down town after you've gone? There's some shop ping 1 ought to do." "Certainly, my dear. Co whenever you like. I won't neod xwu-" Nevertheless Janet's time was aken up until; nearljrthree o'clock. She was dressing- when* she heard lie- car In the driveway. That meant that Mrs. Chrtis would soon ie on her way. It was 20 minutes past three when Janet left the house and walked to the bus* stop.- The day was warm and yet there was a-nlnt of fall in the air. Tall cosmos and yellow chrysanthemums Uodded. their heads In the breeze—the onlj flowers-left where a dozen varieties had. bloomed a- few- weeks before Another week/and September would; be gone. Almost six months had passed since Janet had left the rooming house and moved to Mrs. Curtis expensive, home. "I wonder." she thought, "where I'll be in anothei six months?" It was rather exciting, in sli months she would be In a different clty..doing entirely different things. Janet hadn't quite decided where she was going. That was the chlei reason for her trip down town to day. She wanted to Inquire about fares* at the railway station. New York was the favored destination if It didn't cost too much. If It did there were half a dozen others. -^ MAGNOLIA- POUNDERS' MONTH '• ^ t r% f\ f) When nuiomobilcs looked like this, anil J^ Q y Q only .1 handful of them were in cx- istence, the founders of the Magnolia Petroleum Company started the )ir«t refinery in tho Southwest at Corsicana, Texas. The picture below was reproduced from an actual photograph of this first refinery. 1933 Just thirty-five years later, there are over twenty-six million motor Vehicles in the United States; petroleum is the fifth largest industry in the country, topped only by agriculture in the Southwest. The photograph-below shows- rite present Magnolia Refinery sr Beaumont-," Texas. D URING the ride down town she planned eagerly. She had n little over 5200 in the bank. Three weeks' salary added to that nnd she would' have enough, A week from Saturday she would tell Mrs. Curtis that she was going away—. Janet discovered with surprise that the bus had renrhcd Center street. She pressed'the button nnd descended. Marsh's was the nearest j department store and she went there. She' bought hose, a re-till j for her vanity case nnd a bottle-or j liquid shampoo. Then she hurried-] to the railway station and ap' j preached the Information desk. j The young mnn behind the coun- j ter was most obliging. He got uui i time-tables and marked them tot \ her, quoted prices and wrote the ' figures in the margin of the page j With the time-table folders tucked i under her arm Janet turned away. \ Disregarding thrift, she stopped at i a shop on tho corner and ordered a | soda. She ate the cooling concoc- ; tlon thoughtfully. Already sho was i j seeing herself miles away from j I Lancaster and for tho drst tinifi the i i thought frightened her. In a I strange city without friends, with j j out even one acquaintance what | ! would she do If she couldn't find n | : job? If she should lose her money ; or become ill to whom would she i turn? I "Hut I won't lose my money!" ' she assured herself scornfully. "1 ! won't be 111. Other girls have made : their own way nnd I can, too!" I Nevertheless the adventure had ' lost some of Its glamour. When ; Janet reached 1 her own room she ; put the time-tables away and did not look at them again. There was scarcely time anyhow. Mrs. Curtis arrived before Janet was down- stairs and shortly afterward dinner was announced. ll was in the living room later while Janet was dealing out the cards for a second round ot two- handed bridge' that the telephone rang. Lucy answered. "It's for you, Mrs. Curtis." she said. "It's I Mrs. Carlyle." l The older woman rose and left the' room. Two minutes later she was back. "Janet!" she erlt-d. "tell Frederick 1 wnnt the car. And hurry! We'll nave to go at ' once!" "But, Mrs. Curtis, what Is It?" "SonieUiiug terrible Uus happened. Betty's been robbed!" '•" B* CvutluucU) Magnolia and the Automobile . . . eyVe grown together for thirty-five years! 'HEELS, ns n rolling device, had been in vnc for more than four thousand years before the invention of the automobile. From available records, the first application of mechanical power to vehicles seems to li.ivc been a carriage propelled by springs, built in Nuremberg, Holland, by Johann Haustach in the sixteenth century. To Charles E. Duryea, a bicycle manufacturer, who first experimented with steam and later made his first gas engine studies at the Ohio State Fair in 1886, goes credit for the first gasoline engine automobile built in the United Stales. In 1892, Duryea built a makeshift, under-powered' affair of one cylinder. The most that can be said for it was that it did achieve the amazing speed of seven miles per hour. Perhaps it was coincidence, but, at about ilu- same time the automobile began its meteoric rise, the Southwest came into the picture as a producer of petroleum. By accident, oil was discovered at Corsicana in 1S96. Two years later, on Christmas Day, 1898, the founders of the Magnolia Petro- J leum Company fired the stills in the first refinery in the Southwest, Without the Southwestern production of petroleum to supply popular priced fuel and lubrication, it is doubtful whether the automobile could have come into such widespread use in so short a time. As pioneer refiners of the Southwest, the Magnolia Petroleum Company has seciv the automobile industry grow from a clumsy, lumbering infant into the world's largest industry. Just as the founders of this Company were the pacemakers of Southwestern petroleum production, so has Magnolia set the pace for better gasolines, motor oil and greases. Many people living today remember when they chugged over Southwestern roads in their rambling, horseless carriages... fueled and lubricated by Magnolia Products!
