'Showboat' Comes Saenger Theater Romantic Musical Drama on Screen Next Wednesday "Show Boat," popularly recalled as Edna Ferbcr's besl seller novel and as Ihe Jerome Kern-Oscar Hammcrstcin singe hit, hns been booked lo show al the Snengcr Wednesday for two shows only, at 2:30 and 8 p. in. The romantic musical drama contains songs which have made the play a memorable success throughout this country. The 1936 screen version by the same authors. Eight of tlie principal players portray roles which they formerly interpreted on the stage. Irene Dunne, starring as Magnolia, is the center of a love slory that reveals Allan Jones as the carefree Kavenal. Charles Winninger is Ihe genial Caplain Andy; Helen Morgan mokes the same attractive Julie lhal she did on the stage. Paul Robeson, splendid baritone, again plays Joe. A chorus of 200 and n tolnl casl of 3,500 players indicate Ihe grand scale on which James Whale directed "Show Boat." 3-Star Film Will Show at the New "Kid Galahad," Featuring Edward G. Robinson, at New, Sunday, Monday Betto Davis was winner of the 1935 Academy gold statue (or the best feminine film performance of the year. Edward O. Robinson's every pic- lure has been great since "Little Cnesar," back in 1930. Humphrey Bognrl was the main figtin: in the recent "Black Legion" thriller, and the menacing bandit in "Petrified Forest." Each an individual Warner Bros. star — hut now all working together in "Kid Galahad," an exciting story of the prize ring and those who surround it! The picture hns been booked into the New theater and is scheduled to have Its fir.sl local showing on Sunday. "Kid Galahad," written by Francis Wallace, was a great literary success v.'hen it first appeared as a serial in a national weekly magazine. Then it became a best-seller as a novel, The slory deals with two rival underworld fight-managers, Robinson and Bogarl, and their attempts to double-cross each other. Eddie's fighter is "Kid Galahad" (called that because of his idealistic attitude toward women), played by a 23-year-old newcomer to the screen named Wayne Morris. It is predicted by those who saw the picture in preview that this movie will shoot him right into star- dam. Bog.'irt's 'boy' is another very unusual character — William Haade, who was Inken right off the skeleton of a steel office-building in New York City to play the lead in the stage production "Iron Men." He's a genuine steel worker. Directly from the Broadway play he was brought to Hollywood to do "Chuck McGraw," the heavyweight champion in "Kid Galahad." The fight between these two boys is said to be the bitterest ever shown on stage or scren— with no punches pulled. Morris weighs 195, Haade 210. The battle goes eleven rounds. Miss Davis plays the part of "Fluff," girl friend of Robinson. A new young leading lady on the Warner lot— Jane Bryan, who scored so heavly in Belle's last picture, "Marked Women," plays the romantic lead opposite Morris. Then there are some real fighters, professionals, too, such as Bob Nestell, Ihe heavyweight contender, Honk Hnnkinson and Jack Kranze— and immense scenes of Madison Square Garden battles. The picture was directed by Michael Curtiz (who made "The Charge of the Light Brigade" and "Captain Blood,") from a sccen play by Salon I. Miller, adapted from the Wallace novel. A Whale of a Whale Who hasn't heard of the "Big One That Got Away," here is a picture of a renlly big one lhat didn't get away. Probably some ambitious fisherman will lay claim to "Colossus" as the big one that got away from him, but "Colossus was only caught once, and Ihen the catch was only made possible with the most modern of whaling equipment. Boasting her weight in tons, C8 of them and her -length in feet, puts "Colossus" in the really, big class, and she is coming lo Hope Saturday, Otlober 16th for one day only. Mounted on her own specially built railroad car sai dto be the largest ever built. The huge whole pictured above is one of the features of the Mammo.th Marine Hippodrome which is a complete Marine Museum of all the strange denizens of the seven seas, chief among which is "Sta Tiny the Mermaid," said to be natures strangest living enigma. The huge exhibit car stretching otil more than 100 feet will arrive Saturday morning and will be spotted at tne Missouri Pacific depot for a one day visit. • The exhibit will be open to the public from noon until 10 p. m.

Hit Al HA "He Was Her Man," Pictorial Review HUlV nearer realily Friday night. Hugh Wilson, for the United States, and V. A. L. Mallet, for Greal Brilain, began a discussion of preliminary arrangements, with the result that a date and place for the meeting may be announced within a few days. Officials did not cliclose whether Mallei, Ihe charge d'affaires of the British embassy, and Wilson went into the question of how far the United Slates is willing to go in taking concerted aclion. Thai question, a principal one ever since Mr. Rco.sevclt's Chicago speech, became an absorbing subject of speculation, bolh here and elsewhere. It was regarded as a question on which there must be a preliminary understanding it the conference is to prove a success. That is, the meeting must have a program, leading to a specific decision whether the naloins involved shall un- dcrlukc a definite course of action lo call Japan lo account or adopt a state- menl of policy wilh recommendations lo the League of Nations. The powers involved may be asked to declare a general economic boycott against Japan, Ihus attempting to cut the island off from needed supplies. There were no indications whclher Ihe United Slales would or would nol support such aclion. Presumably, Ihe powers represented will be those which liave signed or adhered to the nine-power treaty which specifies the rights of the subscribing nations in the Fav Easl and guarantees China's terrilorial integrity. The countries involved are: United Stales, Britian, China, Japan, France, Italy, Belgium, The Netherlands, Portugal, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Mexico and Bolivia. Accused in his own time of nalure faking because of Ihe dramatic poses in which lie portrayed birds, John James Auduhun, early American naturalist, has been vindicated by the studies of more recent scientists. Wood ducks are at home in trees as a.s in water. "Lost Horizon" at Saenger In a setting of idyllic splendor, representing the lamasery of Shangri-La in "Lost Horizon," and featuring Jane Wyatt and Ronnld Colman find the perfect romance. Their story is port of the strange odyssey described by James Hilton in his prize-winning novel. "Greatest in screen history" is the verdict of Ihe world's critics and the 3,000,000 persons enthraled by the overwhelming drama ... the heart-warming romance of Frank Copra's mighty screen masterpiece, "Lost Horizon," opening its local popular-priced engagement at the Saonger theater Sun- Warner Baxter Is Starred at Rialto Has Leading Role in the Film "Robinhood of El Dorado" day and continuing through Tuesday. Millions , , . the world over . . , have been swept off their feet by its powerful drama and overwhelming beauty during 100 epoch-making road- show engagements at $2,20 top. These 3,000,000 persons have previewed this great picture—and say it must be seen! By any standard of comparison . . . "Lost Horizon" will be heralded the •greatest motion picture ever made! Ronald Colman stars in the production with Jane Wyatt, Edward Everett Hoi-ton, Margo, H. B. Warner, Thomas Mitchell, Isabel Jewell, John Howard and Sam Jaffe in support. Lifted bodily from the most romantic era of America's frontier his- lory, "Robin Hood of El Dorado," starring Warner Baxter comes Wednesday lo the Rialto to take its place among Ihe Iruly magnificent achieve- menls of the lalking screen. It is an outdoor qpic reminiscent of "The Covered Wagon, 1 ' ^The Big Trail" and other spectacular photoplays which stand as milestones of motion picture progress. Painted wilh spectacular strokes on a Iremendous canvas, il still finds opportunity to deal with the heartaches, the romances, the joys and the sorrows of an absorbing character—the historic Joaquin Murrieta who left his name written large in th,e early history of the Far West. Warner Baxter turns in the greatest characterization of his career as the dashing good-bad man who rode like an avenging angel through the roaring gold towns of California in the days of '49, 'leading a 'wild out-i law army of 400 men. It is a role that blends romance with fierceness, tenderness with hate, and to it Baxter, adds a delightful charm that is certain to captivate feminine hearts.

Our highways are units of transcontinental systems and the sections lying within Arkansas have just as much of a dollars and cents value to oilier parts of our nation as to Arkansas. "We say our nation as to Arkansas. "We say our highways cost more than one hundred million dollars but Uncle Sam said he valued them at only thirly million and shut off. This means no funds for new construction as the refunding act of 1934 requires thai every dollar over maintenance cosls be pledged to debt service. "I tried to nvoid Ihis wilh my refunding program which would save the taxpayers millions of dollars in interest, but a small group ... in Little Rock are doing everything possible to block the program." The governor said he intended to push the purchase of lands within the Bouef spillway, asserting thai "Ihose people who sil below Arkansas City behind lhat fuse plug levee never know what time il is going out and destroy Iheir lands am 1 , lives." "The Overlon bill carried an appropriation of fifteen millions to p;iy for this land," he conlinued, "bul some- Ihing happened. Someone decided Ihese properly owners should make their lands a gift lo ihl government This was nol right, the land-owners should be compensated."

Miller charged Fn- day nighl that Governor Carl E. Bailey "apparently" took steps lo reader Ihe speed law al nearby Greenland ineffective last September aflei an allcmpl was made to arrest him there He said Bailey, ihen attorney general and governor-elect, did not pay a fine and appear in court as ordered, although he was head of the stale law enforcing body and working with Ihe state highway department to promote safety. Deputy Marshal Stanley Mays al- lempled lo arresl Bailey at Greenland lale in Seplember, charging lhat he was traveling 55 miles an hour, or 20 miles more than an ordinance prescribed. Bailey refused lo recognize Ihe ar- resl or lo respond to a demand for his appearance in mayor's court, accusing the Greenland officials of operating a "speed trap." Stale highway department officials backed Bailey up in his charges. Several clays afler the incident, Prosecuting Attorney Jim Trimble obtained a circuit courl injunction lo restrain Greenland's mayor and law enforcement officials from serving, charging the town had not been incorporated. Miller Friday night reilerated his assertion thai Bailey was seeking lo gain the support of Lieutenant Gover- nor Bob Bailey and his friends. 'Candidate Bailey will make a statement before the close of the campaign that Governor Bailey will resign if elected senator," he said, "notwithstanding Governor Bailiey's promise before the state legislature last February that he would not resign; not- witlistanding his promise to state appointees that he would not desert them,. "Bear in mind, however, the statement will be delayed until Governor Bailey's campaign has been financed fully by his state appointees. Despite tl:e fact he will make such a statement, he will not resign. He will make such a statement solely in an effort to gain the support of Bob Bailey and his friends." The word "El Dorado," meaning "the gilded one," was firsl applied to a Soulh American tribal king or priest, said to cover himself with gold dust at an annual religious festival.
