WHAT'S WRONG (Continued from Page One) Southwestern Co. Cuts Light Rates 10 ["<• Reduction Managed Through Fact Finding Tribunal LITTLE ROCK — The Southwestern Gas; & Electric Co., of Shreveport. which operates electric distributing .systems in more than SO cities and towns in southwestern, western and northwestern Arkansas, concluded negotiations with the Fact Finding Tribunal Monday concerning n reduction in rates and the tribunal recommended that the company's offer to reduce domestic and commercial rates approximately 10 per cent be accepted by the municipalities affected. P. A. Lasley, chairman of the tribunal, said the reduction will save consumers approximately 54!>,OOU a year and will bring total consumer savings to nearly $300,000 a year. A statewide reduction announced by the Arkansas Power & Light Co. following findings of the tribunal that the company's rates at Stuttgart should be reduced 10 per cent, involving consumer savings of $225.000, it was said. Reductions negotiated with the Oklahoma Gas & Electric Co.. two weeks ago totalled about ?25,000. Mr. Lasley said the tribunal invited the Southcwstcrn Gas & Electric Co., to a conference regarding rate reductions shortly after the Arkansas Power & Light Co. reduction was announced. Officials of the Shreveport company replied that they were then making a study of its operations with a v ew to revising its rate schedules and would submit the revised schtdule to the tribunal. A Licberman, of Shre- vcpart, president of the company, submitted the proposed schedule and authorized Chairman Lasley to announce that if would bu put in effect us of July 1. if approved by the tribunal.

The public is invited. as an actr«m, began to be indignant thnt sho should continually be cast In stipcr-Kophisticnted roles, Success In Clean Picture* Because of her personality and Inl- ent. Miss Shearer was always certain to draw hujre throngs to her pictures, regardless of what kind of pictures they were. And the critics (ihouted that she wns simply Bending fhrm away from tho theater with an object lesson in immorality. Yet her own success in 100 per cent clean pictures, such as "Smilln" Through," proves that the super-sophisticated, lady-of-the-evening, wo- mnn-of-the-world sort of role IB not at nil necessary to Shearer success, either with the public or at the box office, which after all, in the same thing. Another example of the ruination of an otherwise excellent picture, according to those who are now demanding movie reform, was "The Power and the Glory," featuring Spencer Tracy nnd Colleen Moore. One situation in the film depicted a boy entering into an illicit relation with his stepmother. Spoiled by "Dirt" Scene The film was beautifully made, and showed both Tracy and Miss Moore at the height of their power as actor mul actress, but the critics contend that the unnecessary introduction of this unnatural scone spoiled what might otherwise have been an outstanding picture. Granted that there are divorces and broken marriages, grunted that there are somphisticated folk (in the movie colony as well as elsewhere) who jump in and out of marriage with sickening regularity, the critics of the movies now raise the question of whether it is desirable to present such themes with such frequency as to lead audiences to believe it the regular, the modern, and the desirable situation. And here again the manner of presentation, and its frequency, is everything. Saving Grace in Direction Proper handling and intelligent direction make all the difference in the world. It is hard, for example, to think of a more risque plot than to have a young man and a girl, unmarried, traveling across the country in an auto and sharing a cabin nights in tourist camps along the way. Yet that is the plot that was put on the screen without raising any volume of objection in "It Happened One Night" with Clark Gable and Clau- delte Colbert. Here Frank Capra, the director, handled the compromising situation with such a delicate touch, and with so restrained and tasteful a hand, that there was scarcely a single objection. It was the complete answer to the question: Can brains, taste and hon- estay of purpose enable the movies to handle delicate situations without offense? Makes Liifht of Marriage A typical example of the super-sophisticated in the movies was the bringing to that medium of Noel Coward's "Design for Living." Here was a play which deliberately set out to make light of the marriage tie as recognized by society today, by portraying a group of sophisticates who bat matrimony about like a tennis ball throughout the picture. Many audiences, more old-fashioned than certain "advanced" sets of play- peopk- of the French Riviera, were of" fended by'the light view of the marriage relation which was the very theme of this picture. The cleverness and smartness of dialogue which marked this vehicle would be lost on young people, it was pointed out though they could not miss the joking view taken of the whole marriage relation. Censure for Aim Harding Ann Harding is another actress who has "gone sophisticated" in recent pictures which have shown a pretty hard-boiled attitude toward both marriage and divorce—"The Right to Romance," and "Gallant Lady." But her current release, "The Life o fVirgie Winters," has aroused even a greater storm, though it .wus.re-edltetj in Hollywood before release. In this picture Anne continues an intrigue with an old sweethreat even after he marries another girl, who looks on the relationship more or ILSS complacently. Some of the pictures mentioned above no doubt have merit, and several were handled with considerable restraint and delicacy. But it is the constant flood of such pictures which has arouesd the critics. No one questions that marriage today is a problem, and that to eliminate all pictures about disturbed marriages would hamstriing the movies as a vital art. Children Offer Problem It is largely a matter of proportion, and the showing of three divorce- shaken marriages to one that turns out happily is regarded as giving a warped view of life. And while it seems unreasonable to expect that all movies be edited to be fit for 11-year-old children, the fact mutt be realized that children go to these pictures in (Treat numbers. Whether they oughl to be allowed to go is another question—the point is, they do. And the movie reformers insist that tho general run of pictures shall not present a consttntly belittling attitude toward marriags.

Graves, Hope lawyer, would be in charge of Governor Futrell's campaign headquarters, lending citizens in several counties have been cudgeling their memories to recoil jusl what they said to Mr. Graves relative to the governor's race. At Little Hock, Hope. Conway, Heber Springs and other cities and towns in which he happened to be before the public was advised that he Would direct the Futrell headquarters, Mr. Graves casually asked various persons what they thought of the governor, his opponent and the campaign outlook generally. No intimation that he had any particular interest in the matter was given by him, and lie obtained some frank replies—"too frank." moaned one who admitted he really didn't mean what he said in response to what he took for an innocent query. Another to whom Mr. Graves talked over polities generally remarked with evident relief that "I did not all right, I believe; I can't remember saying anything I'd care about the governor hearing. Maybe it will be a relief to some to learn that we understand Mr. Graves has no intention of embarrassing any one who may have unburdened political confidences to him before his assocation with the Futrell campaign became known. Anyway, be returned from his visit hither and yon with the news that he heard nothing that need cause the administration any concern. Moley Warns of Nazi Propaganda Former Roosevelt Confidante Sees Threat Against United States NEW YORK— (/P)— A warning by Raymond Moley, former undersecretary of state, against the spread of Nazi influence in this country and testimony of "bales of propaganda," sent here from Gremany, were heard Monday by the subcommittee of the special house committee on un-American activities. Moley, an advisor to President Roosevelt, appeared before the committee briefly as editor of the mag- azaine Today. "Whether an organic connection with the government is proved or not, any organization that has the same ideas as the Nazis in Germany is a danger to' our country."'Moley said. Fritz Gissibl, member of the National Socialist party of Germany, made the disclosure regarding propaganda pamphlets, some of them al7 tacking Jews and Masons. He said the material was distributed by the "Friends of New Germany." an organization for which Gissibl is the newly appointed Middle Western leader. The committee also made public testimony taken at a previous private hearing purporting to show that Dr. Hans Luther, German ambassador at Washington, had arranged free trnns- Dillinger Trailed After Auto Crash Gang of Gunmen Exchanges Shots With Wisconsin Police FOND DU LAC, Wis. -f/P)- Sheriffs' deputies led by Under Sheriff G. W. Booth were reported on the trail of u gang of gunmen, possibly including John Dillinger, America's public enemy No. 1, in the eastern section-of the state late Monday. The officers recovered an automobile punctured by at least a dozen! bullet holes and pursued another automobile whose occupants shot at them with machine guns. First intimation that Dillinger might be in the county was rccived when an anonymous telephone call to the sheriff's office about noon said there hi-:d been an automobile accident at Eggersvillc about five miles east of the city. When Traffic Officer 'Robert Shields reached the scene he found a new automobile in the ditch, iijs body marked with bullet holes. Under Sheriff Booth and Traffic Officer Anton Raffenstein were close behind. All windows in the car hud been broken by bullets and there were three bullet holes through the rear. Officers found a .32 calibre bullet in the car, which bore Indiana license plates. The officers were told that 'persons in the car had been shot. A body had been dragged from the car, farmers said, by men in a large grey car, which drew up at the scene. The body, apparently that of the man who drove the Ford, farmers say, was laid on the running board of the big car. They told officers they were sure they recognized one of the men in the grey car as Dillinger. Farmers were shown pictures of the desperado and said there was no doubt about it. NEWSPAPER TAX (Continued from Paga One) Barham Revival Is Launched at Rink Holy Land Pictures Delayed—to Be Shown ^Tuesday Night A revival campaign opened in the Skating Rink on North Main street Monday night with hundreds in attendance, the large building being filled almost to capacity with people from Hope and vicinity. Keen interest, was manifest in the service by the crowd from the first song, and was climaxed with the raising of scores of hands for prayer after Evangelist W. S. Barham of Dallas had spoken on "What :Will You! Do With 1 Jesus?" The evangelist stressed the fact that this was an unavoidable question, and one that every man would have to answer sooner or later, by accepting or rejecting Jesus. Dr: R. -A. Forrest, pastor of First Presbyterian church of Toccoa, Ga., who was announced for the opening service, was unavoidably delayed, and did not reach the city in time for, th^e' meeting, but will be in charge of the Tuesday night service, showing motion picture scenes of the Holy Land, and the African mission fieds in connection with his message for the evening. prompting motions and consulting with his followers. When a confused parliamentary situation grew out of several substitute motions, Bauer Rhouted to Wimberly of Bienvile, who was steering the bill through: "I wish the senator would make up his mind, so Mr. Wimberly would know what to do." As the vote was called, Senator Long hastened from desk to desk. calling to his folowers in all parts of the chamber: "Vote yesl" When the storm subsided, Peyton arose with mack solemnity nnd asked that "the house vote a leave of absence for the senior senator from Louisiano."
