Jane Withers at Riajtoon Sunday "Wild and Wooly" Includes Walter Brennan,. Academy Winner A Wild buckaroo out where, the West begins, "Ginger" Jan? Withers begins whore the wild west leaves off in her grandest comedy, "Wild and . Wooly," .which opens Sunday at the Rialto theater. • • • Riding runaway trains, getting her gun-toting grandpop, plnyed by Academy AWard wiiiner Walter Grenmin, into a duel, scaring the wits out of tenderfoot pals in a 'graveyard at midnight, chasing city gangsters on a careening stagecoach, and roping young lovers into romance, Jane makes Buffalo Bill look like a softie. Completely surrounded by her greatest cast, in the most hilarious show these pandemonium-makers have ever bden in, that Jane Withers girl learns the ways.of the West from her old-timer grandpop, but what the West learns from Jane makes hilarious comedy. '.'... The play opens in the old frontier town of Mesa City, which is about to celebrate its first Pioneer Pay Jubilee. Jane has inherited 'the feud between her grandfather and Berton Churchill, unscrupulous town banker, carrying it pn with the lattcr's grandson, Jack •\ Scarl. Jane's chief Stooge is Carl "Alfalfa" Switzer, of "Our Gang" fame. They call him "Zero," but he's a regular adding machine for laughs. Jack's aide is Douglas Scott, and both are rank tenderfcet. Douglas Fowley plays the role of a big-city gangster out to help Banker Churchill in one of his nefarious enter- pVises. Their paths cross the romantic way of Pauline Moore and Robert Wit- cox, who don't even know they're in love until Jane ropes them in! • Deanna Durbin in "lOQ Men Girl" at the Saenger I, The motion picture in the news spotlight is "100 Men and a Girl." The fact that Deanna Durbin has achieved the heights of movie stardom in her second picture; of itself,, attaches new'interest tothis production. • The little singer has won the ac- <?>-——' laim -and sympathy of radio and' creen .audiences. That the, leading lusical figure in America, Leopold Woolsey's Idols Bob Woolsey, currently featured with Bert Wheeler in RKO Radio's "On Again—Off Again," admits that in private life lie is a hero-worshipper and has had three idols, one of whom, Tod Sloan, noted jockey, has passed away. The others are Jack Dempsey and John Berrymorc. Bert Wheeler's one rave (aside from his wife) is Lily Pons, the diminutive prima donna who now is a popular screen star. NOW SAT.

Chase Comedy "FROM BAT TO WORSE" , i'tokowski, has devised a new method for enriching screen music and giving it perspective jn sound, makes the film increasingly significant. This comedy drama with music, "100 Men and a Girl," which opens at the Saenger theater for a three day run Sunday, features many players who have played in notable hits. Deanna Durbin, Alice -Brady and Mischa Auer scored in "Three Smart Girls," Miss Brady, Mischa Auer and Eugene Pallette also registered in "My Man Godfrey." Adolphe Menjou won praise in "Sing, Baby, Sing," "A Star Is Born, "One in a Million" and "Cafe Metropole." Mischa Auer, the madcap musician, has a genius for torturing musical instruments. He declares he is the only pupil of his uncle Leopold Auer, able to play music which cannot be scored on papsr. Mischa adds that it might be possible with a squeaky pencil on a shrieky slate. The story theme stresses the drama and comedy of human living. Deanna Durbin as a musician's daughter, strives to save the careers of 100 musicians facing a crisis. Telephone No. 550 How two pixilated partners in a pill manufacturing business try to solve a long-standing-feud by one forsaking the business to work as the other's valet, is hilariously unfolded in "Oh Again—Off Again," current RKO Radio laugh-fest co-starring Bert Wheeler and Robert Woolsey. •i • • If you'll bring back Mitzie, my pe cat, you can have your pick of her kittens.—Plea of Mrs. Hazel Benjamin of Houston, Texas.

Each family can have a garden plot if it wishes, the size depending on how much the family cares to cultivate for its own needs. Bushes, saplings, and shrubs are also available free from the town nursery, both to the town itself and to the individual ten ants for landscaping. Greenbelt's friends and foes alike agree that no such housing bargain and no bargain even comparable to it has ever been offered before in America. Both agree on the fact—but they draw widely divergent conclusions. Next: What Greenbelt's critics say —and how the government replies.

MARK'S EPISCOPAL CHUKCI The Rev. Chas. C. Jones Priest in Charge 'Services Sunday, Sept. 26, 1937. Holy Communion 7:30 a. m. Morning Prayer and Sermon 11 a. m Dilly the Duck Now Is a Recognized Coiffeur EL PASO, Texas — (ff>)— Dilly the duck was a contented mud splasher, with apparently no higher ambition in .ife, until he took up hairdressing. Now bail-dressing has become an ob- ession with him and he neglects ev- irything, except his domestic responsi- >ilities to comb the hair of his young master, Dick Lea, nine, of El Paso. Dilly can put as attractive a part hrough Dick's hair as the boy's mother. He uses his beak. Dilly was an "Easter" duck present- dizzy duo's best style, from the musical-comedy chorus which makes up the personnel of the company's offices to the hectic complications that develop. Wheeler and Woolsey are partners in a prosperous pill-manufacturing Company; but never agree on which one is responsible for the world-wide success of their product. Their constant quarrels threaten to drive their legal adviser, Russell Hicks, insane. The discord is augmented by the rivalries of Woolsey's wife and Wheeler's fiancee. A notable supporting cast appears with the two mirth-makers in "On Again—Off Again," their twentieth costarring vehicle in the last seven years. Besides Russell Hicks, the featured players include Marjorie Lord, a lovely newcomer from Broadway who made her debut in the recent "Border Cafe"; Esther Muir, who was with the team in "So This Is Africa"; Patricia Wilder and Paul Harvey, The action takes place in a' large Eastern city, and most of it is in two elaborate'settings—the palatial offices of the pill company, with modernistic decorations and modernistic stenographers, and Woolsey's costly home. The romantic element, always an important part in the Wheeler and Woolsey filmfooleries, is supplied by Wheeler and Miss Lord, with Miss Wuir in the role of Woolsey's wife. There are two songs, "One Happy Family," sung by Wheeler' and Woolsey and a chorus of employes, and 'Thanks to You," sung by Wheeler. The two funsters and their feminine accomplices also put on a sparkling tap dance routine in the "Happy Family" sequence. Edward Cline, who previously directed the clown prince in "So This Is Africa," directed the new offering which was produced by Lee Marcus. Nat Perrin and Benny Rubin wrote the screen play, and Dave Rreyer and Herman Ruby the music and lyrics. ... —: . •• ^-^^^~ • " At the New Saturday I?

The lovely waxy white blossoms of Iliis rather rare plant arc really worth seeing, and we never saw them more beautiful than at this bloming. Another thing we would like to recommend, is the placing of a traffic top on South Main at the intersection of Sixth street on football nights; it isn't so bad for Hope folks to get in the jam, but when we have as many out-of- town visitors as we had Friday night and all intent on getting to the stadium at the same time, it is rather bewildering to strangers.
