Joe E., Brown who cavorts across the silver screen in "Local Boy Makes Good," the; IHrst National' production vjhich* will:; open Sunday at tre Saenger Theatre. The new Joe is ^s funny as the old Joe, bu,Mn-a it |ifferept way.: 'He is not at all in the mood of "Top Speed," "Hold Everything,"- "Broad Minded," or "Going Wild'." -.He is' timid, self- ™. , -' There has been this significant change in the Hempstead ^%6vernment in recent years. The salary of the county judge ; |[as risen from $1,800 to $2,400, until today it is $3,000. The "s$ate~ originally turned back to Hempstead county $28,000 a ^yearfor county highways, and at the beginning of 1931 raised '^ gasoline tax from 5 to 6 cents a gallon, the extra cent go- to the counties and increasing Hempstead's total highway to $45,000 a year. 5]??', \ -*- "* W ,'.' 1 What public service has been performed for this new l^hjfgh salary, and this new and burdensome taxation? Here is one penalty we have suffered because a negligent county shirked its share of the public works burden: Tax support of the county agents was cut off in 1928, since when F>*the Southwest Arkansas Fair has been going steadily down- £"\'llHI, It missed paying off premium-winners in 1930, and '"'- again this year. Possibly the drouth accounted for the 1930 ^j losses; but the lack of field workers to stimulate rural at% tendance certainly caused the loss this year. Lynn Smith, fy former Hempstead agent and No. 1 ranking agent of the If st&te, left our county this time last year to go to Union >Vtep.unty, "This year's Southwest Arkansas Fair lost money— b | v ,bu,t this year's Union County Fair made money and paid ' " off. Twenty years ago Hempstead county knew nothing but i<xftton. It has by great diligence and faith built up a considerable business in truck crops. The new business prospered. But these are hard times in any line. Who will keep the •farm business men heartened to their task if our county government won't support the agents' program? t • You may differ with us about the county agents. But You'll agree this is a poor time to be paying for anything we're not getting. Prosperity hasn't exactly returned yet, $gt good-timing by our county government never has gone away. A Magnificent Ge«ture very encouraging instance of applied altruism in business is that furnished recently by the Edgar Thomson mill* of the Carnegie Steel Company at Braddock, Pa., where S0G0 men have been given jobs to tide them over Christmas. These men have b^» taken baefc although no new orders fgr steel have ben propped.

He labors under the suppressed desire to be a devil with the ladies and at the same time a power among the athletes of the local college. In 'reality he is a clerk in a bookstore and a student of botany. In his dream world he is forever mooning over—and writing letters to Julia Winters, a co-ed of a distant university, whose picture he has seen. These letters, filled with avowals of devotion and exaggerated praise of his own athletic prowess, he never mails. Some one else does mail one of them, however, and thereby hangs this tale. To his dismay Julia writes that she ib coming to attend the track meet and to meet her hero. The role of Julia Winters is played by Dorothy Lee, thi petite blonde whose vivacity added so much to "Rio Rita" and other Wheeler and Woolsey vehicles. Julia arrives and adds t Joe's discomfiture by announcing tha she is accompanied by her husky lov er, Spike Hoyt, captain of the tracl team of her college—portrayed by Ed 1 ward Woods. Julia notes Joe's tim idily, and being q bug on psycho-an alysis, tries, without success to imbui him with courage. Before Julia's arrival a pretty clerk had come to share Joe's lamors. in th< bookstore. Marjorie. Blake — playei with charm by tho young Florida screen find, Ruth Hall. Marjorie has urged Joe to take par in the contests to alibi himself. He has tried to do so, successfully, bu with disastrous results, as his attempts to. throw a javelin, result in an injury to one Wally Pierce, speediest sprinter of the school—played by Edward J Nugent. Wally pursues the distressed Joe i such anger, that the officials, amazec at the speed of the two, decide tha both must enter the races for the honor of the school. The appalling things that happen to Joe—the clever means by which Marjori? spurs him to action—his unexpected victory—and his fnial rjeection of juji^.—who, now that he js a ww- n/?r is all for ditching Spjie—jnafce g, play pf such uproarious fun »nd a< the fg^ne time such humanity—that ij ra/u>? as one of the best combes of Letters to Santa Claus Washington.
