BY DAN TIIOAS 'NEA Service Staff Correspondent HOLLYWOOD, Calif—A new era of prosperity equal to that of pre-de- prcssion days is being opened to the motion picture industry-—and it is due to the current cleanup battle which at the moment has the film moguls so upset they don't know which way to turn. The nation's cry is "give us clean pictures." All the industry has to do to "cash in" on this demand is make clean films. Of course, there are two types of clean pictures—-the type containing genuine entertainment and the wishy- washy kind (hat doesn't contain anything in particular. Since the movies began, most o flhe big money-makers have c(Xmc un<Jer the the iWincr classification. That clean productions do return big profits to their makers is best proved by glancing back over our box office leaders. "Little Women" Is Mint There's "Little Women," for example. Released less than a year ago, this picture already has done business approximating $2,225,000. Some claim that this tremendous gross has been due to'the presence of Katharine Hepburn in the 'leading role. That may be true .in part—but let the mtry putting Mies Hopburn ;in an objectionable film and see what happens. "Little Women" is as clean and wholesome u picture as anyone could desire, but it also is full of entertainment. The two can go together, you know. "Cavalcade" is another example of what a well-made, clean .production will do. Although most ifilm 'experts predicted before it was finished that it would be one of our most gigantic "flops," it already has grossed more than $2,000,000. No obscene sex situations were necessary to make this film .interesting. The strong feeling of patriotism, not of any one land, but existing in all nations, was sufficient to put it over. "Cimarron" Proves Point The fighting spirit of those hardyi men and women who first settled in Oklahoma is u far more profitable theme than any sex plot, as was proved by "Cimurron," which almost reached the $2,000,000 mark. And it wasn't .names which drew the 'business either. Richard Dix at 4he time was just about to sing his swan song, and Irene Dunne was unknown to screen audiences. The picture re-established Dix and brought Miss Dunne into instant favor, in addition to making big money. A very simple picture, "It Happened One Night," was .released for the first lime less than six months ago and already its business has passed the 51,500,000 figure. Hero .there were no particular scenes such as were found in "Cimurron"—just a simple story told in a most interesting manner. It brought more fans into the camps of both Clark Gable and Claudettc Colbert than any previous film made by either. Other Big Money Makers "Forty-second Street" and "Footlight Parade" both exceeded §2,000,000 gross intakes, yet there was nothing obscene nor objectionable in either. Rather, they proved a new type of musical production, one with glamorous musical numbers and his songs and a legitimate reason for each. Will Rogers has established himself as a star who always appears in films which the whole family will enjoy. Yet every one of his pictures has been a big money maker, "David Harum" being a little more successful than most, with a gross of more than $1,000,000. "Min and Bill," with Wallace Beery and Marie Dressier, was as clean u picture as you could ask for, and its business exceeded $1,500,000. Clean Plays Pay The same held true of "The Champ," which brought Beery and Jackie Cooper together, and did u $1,000,000 business. Janet Gaynor's "Paddy, the Next Best Thing," and "Carolina" are in the same category—clean, wholesome entertainment. Each was u romantic film, of the type everyone likes to see. When the returns came in, each had grossed nearly $1,000,000. Producers will point to these films and say, "Sure, they did big business, but we spent a lot of money on them." It's («oud Business The average so-called good film today costs about $200,000 lo $250,000 and grosses between $400,000 and $500,000. So what's wrong with spending ?500,000 or even $GOO,000 if $1,500,000 or $2,000,000 will be returned? From where anybody sits, thai looks like good business. II can be done. But it's harder than simply throwing together some offhand mixture of sex and smartcrack- ery. So the whole tinsel world of Hollywood is in turmoil today, revamping completed pictures, seeking clean new ones, modifying costumes, fumigating lines, andtrying desperately to guess what the public wants today, and what it will want tomorrow.

Drouth for 68 'Days LITTLE ROCK — Crops are being hurt badly through northwest.Arkan- sas by a drouth which has continued in sections of that territory, chiefly in the vicinity of Fort .Smith, 'for 68 charge of the Little Rodk Weather; days. H. S Cole, meterologist in' charge of the Little Rock Weather 'Bureau, said yesterday. For the past two weeks little rain has fallen in the section bordered on the south by Scott, Yell and Perry counties and on the north by Benton, IBoone and Marion counties, and in, the Fort Smith area where 'tempera-, itures of 100 degrees have .prevailed, ipractically no rain has fallen to bring relief to the sun-baked crops. Although agriculturists reported cotton had not been seriously dama'ged, corn, pasturer, truck and late potatbes, lhave been badly hurt, and in some iplaces literally burned 'to a crisp. 'Crops in the central and northeastern, sections were destroyed prior to the; heavy rain 'of last week-end and the •fruit crop in southwest Arkansas was', menaced by the dry weather. The counties most severely hit by; the drouth are Scott, Yell, Perry, Se-^ 'baslian, Logan, Pope, Van Buren Madison, Crawford, Franklin, Washington,^ Newton, Searcy, Stone, Izard, Fulton,; Benton, Carroll, Boone and Marion.' .

The subject announced for Saturday night is. "Life's Golden Dream." The public is urged by the Evangelist to hear this message on the establishing of tho kingdom on the throne of David.

These were quelled without casualties. Seven persons were arrestet. Police said they spotted radical members of the Council for the Un- ] employed in the'downtown riot crowd 1 and saw u concerted plan afoot to I harrass relief agencies | Trouble began in' mid afternoon at offices of the Cuyahoga County Relief Administration. Complaining seekers for relief began to crowd into the comparatively small quarters. Patrolman Thomas Gibbons warned the crowd to remain orderly. He asked the complaining 50 or more to leave. Nobody started out and the | manager asked the officer to clear the room. He called for a riot squad—the usual procedure when relief crowds get out of hand—and Lieutenant Charles Kissling and Patrolman James Veseley responded. ''Clear out" barked the lieutenant, Patrolman Veseley pushing his way j ahead through teh crowd. Suddenly a man grabbed Veseley aorund the neck and grabbed the offi- ahead through the crowd. "The man wheeled, spied Gibbons and fired," said Veseley later. "Gib- around the neck and grabbed the offi- ed pushing his way to the man who had my gun but he was too late. The firing increased suddenly. "When it was over Gibbons was on the floor. Another man way lying on his face nearby A' little way over a negro woman was dying." From a hospital cot Gibbons said the first he knew the riot was getting out of hand, wa when a man wheled on him and fired, "I drew my gun and returned the fire. I don't know whether I hit him or not. A little way off I saw one of the dead and a dying woman " Before the shooting had fairly started, there was a mad stampede for the exits. Outside, however, thousands of passersby began lo gather, and traffic was snarled for blocks most of the afternoon. Police later gave out this casualty list: The dead: Sam Arsenti, 45; an unidentified negro woman. Tlie wounded Patrolman Gibbons, 32, shot in the hip; Andrew Massiack, 42. shot in the leg and Mrs. Anna Massiack, his wife, wounded in the back. In the charity hospital Massiack seemed to think Giggons had started the firing, but admitted the scene was not clear. KANSAS CITY —{/?)— Temp'eratur-: es skyrocketed to dizzy heights today' in Kansas and Missouri. ' • i At Hays, Kan., the mercury rose! to 117 degrees, highest in the 42 years : that records have'been kept. Norton, Kansas reported 114 degrees :and readings of 105 upwards were the rule in both states. An all-time record was established at Hannibal, Mo., at 108 degrees. The shortage of water in -Missouri: as the result of the long .drouth, -and- unprecedented heat wave was describ-j ed at "appalling" by Wallace Crossley,' state relief director. ''Death and destruction are riding the high, dry winds which are turning fertile fields into brown patches incapable of sustaining animal life," he said The director appealed to farmers to make every effort to conserve the dwindling water supply. He .reported cattl were dying in the fields. : The rearing sun and. torrid winds increased the acuteness of the drouth, in Kansas.
