SECRETARY" All-Star Cast in Film at the New "Call It a Day" Presents Stage Favorites Here Sunday For a couple of years in London nnd then for over a year in New York there ran with great success a play by an Englishwoman, Dodic Smith, entitled "Call It a Day." It delighted audiences because it was 'different." In fact, nothing just like it had ever been presented before. It was the story of the reactions of the various members of a nice suburban amily to the first touch of spring, with its balmy, pulsestirring warmth and fragrance. They all fell in love—or at least they nought they did—which seems per- "eetly natural. But at the end of the evening, when they were all ready to 'Call It a Day," well, that was some- hing different. As a movie, the comedy-drama, a 'osmopolitan production released by Varner Bros., will open at the New heater on Sunday. It is a smart sophisticated film, cle- icnding to a considerable extent upon irilliant dialogue and upon brilliant lerformances. The dialogue was there Iroady, from Miss Smith's pen, and o Director Archie Mayo insured his ierformances by assembling a truly emarkable cast. Husband and wife of the family are Ian Hunter and Frieda Inescort, both famed on stage and screen. The young daughter of the house is Olivia de Havilland, fresh from her triumph in "The Charge of the Light Brigade." Peter Willes, imported from the London stage is the young son. Youngest daughter is Bonita Granville, who played the "brat" in "These Three." A family friend who becomes infatuated with Miss Inescort is the droll Roland Young, with Alice Brady to aid and abet his suit. A "girl next door" and the object of the young son's affections, is the lovely Anita Louise. An artist who is almost won by the elder daughter, Miss de Havilland, is Walter Woolf King. His understanding wife is Peggy Wood. An actress who comes near to sweeping the father- husband off his feet is Marcia Ralston. It is truly an all-star cast—even the 'bit" parts being played by such notables as Una O'Connor, Beryl Mercer, Elsa Buchanan and Mary Field. "Call It a Day" won great acclaim in its previews, when the critics called it a delightful comedy, with touches of deep and genuine cjrama. It was adapted for the screen by Casey Robinson.

Circus Lau- hler i., the well-print; of life, a.s some .- ii/,e |jl.ilo.so|,lu-r of old .•apiently remarked. Nobody will deny that an ounce of hearty laughter is worth a gallon of medicinal tonic. "Summon my Court Fool!" cried Queen Eli/abpih, fioin her throne, and out tripped Uicjkey Tarleton, her fav- orite jester in all the motley of cap and bells. "Bring on the clowns!" cry the children of today at the circus, and forthwith come romping, tumbling, and skylarking an army of merry mad- caps. The origin of the clown is shrouded in mystery, but it is safe to say that the illustrious Maccus of ancient Rome was assuredly the predecessor of our own immortal Dan Rice. Through the ages, clowns have been benefactors of mankind. It is interesting to circus lovers to note that the slang term for a clown around the circus is "Joey." This affectionate synonym dates back to the days of the great Joseph Grimaldi, the illustrious English clown who was always called "Joey," and nothing else. Every clown since Grimaldi's time has been dubbed "Joey." There are a hundred clever clowns from all corners of the globe with the Barney Bros. Circus. By special arrangement with the Barney Bros. Circus, and through the cooperation of the merchants of Hope, it has been made possible for you to attend this circus for 15c for children and 25c for adults, instead of 25c for children and 50c for adults which is the regular price of the tickets if you buy them at the circus ticket wagon. If you will go to any of the merchants listed below they will be glad to give you a merchants guest ticket, which you present at ticket wagon on circus day with a 15c service chaige for a child and 25c service for an adult ticket. These tickets will admit you to see the main circus performance without any further i«.v,t unless you should desire a center section grandstand reserved seat, which can be purchased on the circus grounds for lac extra. Many merchants will have special bargains lo offer you on circus day So come to Hope on September 27 and patronize the merchants who have made this circus bargain possible •and see a real circus at * nominal cost. List will be published Monday. FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH W. R. Hamilton, Pastor .'Sunday is one of the most important days for many a month.

The more workers we have, the more easily the task can be accomplished. The pastor wjll preach Sunday morning on "Aggressive Christianity." The service will be shortened to permit census takers to have lunch at the church and begin work by 12:30 or 12:45. In this way they may be able to report results of their census completed by 2:30 or 3:00. A great popular service is being planned for Sunday night.

This is a wise precaution because the average shopper sols pretty jaded in the aftcr- uxin nnd the sight of a fresh, well groomed .salesgirl is n real restorative. Benny Baker, was just looking on, and wondered into a theater foyer crowd scene in which Mnry was an usherotW. On Meeting her husband unexpectedly she blew up in her lines. Robert Floroy fixed it up, though, to remake the scene with Benny nnd Bnker in it, and to give Benny a line to speak. They run through the scene nnd went on about their business, and the .studio felt duty bound to pay both nctors for their efforts. Two checks, for sixty cents ed6h, were made out; to Jock O'Bcnny ahd Bonny O'Bnker. All the'names In "This Way Pleads" nre not in the extra ranks, howoVef.
