John Barton heads the cast, which is on its third coast-to-coast tour of the larger cities of the country. Written by Jack Kirkland and based ori the celebrated novel of the same name by Erskin Caldwell, "Tobacco ftoad" has stirred more discussion thdn any other stage play of many years. Its phenomenal success is attributed to the fact that it shows a truthful section of life among the penniless share-croppers of the back counry of Georgia. It is now in its fifth year on Broadway and its lengthy fUn has been equalled by only one other play, "Abie's Irish Rose," in the entire history of the American theater. Jt has been presented in mere than. ISO of the larger cities of the country, including Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Chicago, Detroit Cleveland, San Francisco Seattle, Cincinnati St. Louis and Washington. I "Tobacco Road" takes a typical fam- iJJ of tenant farmers living in squalor and- poverty, ignorant of everything •btit sex and religion, and shows the humor and the drama to be found in the routine of their daily lives. So powerful is this drama that leading newspapers throughout the country editorially pronounced "Tobacco Road' to be "tf;e epic American play." It has also been indorsed as an authentic and important American document •by such literary celebrities at Theodore Dreiser, George Jean Nathan, Alexander Woollcott, Marc Connelly. 'Stark Young, Carl Van Doren and many others: and prominent clergymen have preached sermons urging their congregations to see the play as a portrayal of existing conditions. Its production led Congressman Kramer of California to introduce a resolution into congress to investigate the condition of the share-cropp-;rs while the Julius Rosenwald Fund has set aside a sum of money for a similar investigation. As an example of modern realistic literature the study of "Tobacco Road" in published form is required as extra-ourricular reading in sixteen universities and colleges. John Barton will have the central role of Jceter Lester, the middle-aged shrewd, philosophic, lazy share-cropper. Associate artists include Florence Gerald as Ada, the wife, whose only desire is "A stylish dress to be buried in"; 1-atricia Quinn as Sister Bessie, the middle-aged missionary who induces the" 16-year old Dude, played by Pitt Herbert, to marry her by -promising him a new automobile with a horn on it; William Bishop as Lov Bensey, the coal-chute 'workers and Sondra Johnson as his 12-year old wife; Kay Thorne as Ellie May of the slit lip; and Lillian Ardell, Dick Lee, Walter Ayers and Rhett Townes. The appearance of this famous stage play will be the most important dramatic event of recent seasons. Orville W.

Your Car Throws Its Lights at This Testing Machine-and the Machine Says "Yes" or "No" Metal Spinning Mass Production DAYTON, Ohlo.-</rv-"Meta! spinning," more nn nrt than an Industry, is practiced In this city by n small group of skilled craftsmen. The "spinning" process, which has not been adapted to mass production, consists of betiding a twirling disc of metal over a wooden form. Various types of conical and spehricnl pieces are turned out. Joseph Nagcl, a metal spinner for 19 years, produced the aluminum alloy noses used for the dirigibles Akron and Macon. He uses a tool resembling a screw driver, with which he shapes the whirling disc to conform to the outline of the wooden form. Among other pnxlucts nre coffee urns, kitchen utensils, ashtrays, air- plnne engine cowls and purely decorative pieces. —Photo by Hope Star First on the test "line" In the City of Hope's new auto Inspection station in the old exhibit hall of Fair park is this headlight-testing machine.

East 3rd, Koft -open Day & Nite We, the Women By Ruth Millett : Commandments Find Youth Critical, Not Hypocritical On first thought it seems a bit ludicrous to think of a group of college students voting op the worth of the ten command- sj-nenls as rules for '• modern living. That happened the other day at New York University. But it is interesting to hear how —ALL HOME OWNERS— Wo Invite Your Inquiry TERMITE CONTROL At Reasonable Prices Home Service Co. Hope Roy Allison, Mgr. Ark. dorsed by every student. A few even took exception to "Thr?u shall not kill" and "Thou shall not steal." But on the whole, the students decided that the old commandments are pretty good rules to follow. At least they didn't have any belltr suggestions. On firsl thought mothers and fathers will probably either laugh or grow indignant pbout a group of inexpor- commandments | j e nced young people having the nerve stood up under so j j 0 condemn or condone the respected Ruth much "free thought." "Thrm shall honor thy falher and thy mother" is jusl as good a rule lo- day as il was thousands; cf years ago, _ all but twelve of I — the 1485 students agreed. Many of the "jury." hcwevcr, questioned tho soundness of the commandments dealing with man's attitude toward God and the rules for sex conduct. Not a single commandment was en- ten commandments. Their attitude will depend largely on whether they have more humor than religion, or the other way orund. But if you give the religious poll a second thought, they will see that those young people were simply put- ting down on paper Ihe criticisms of the commandments that the world is busy living. Why it is wcrse or more absurd for Junior to say he thinks th.it "Thou 'halt not covet thy neighbor's wife," is outmoded than for his father to tell the world that he is planning to marry Mrs. £o-and-So just as soon as she gets a divorce? And if Mary says "Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's goods" is the bunk, so is Mary's mother saying it when she nags her husband because '.he Joneses have a new car. Don't smile too wisely at the college students. Or don't worry for fear they are headed straight to perdiction. They at least gave the ten commandments a few minutes of serious thought. And that's something. Texas Grid Foes AUSTIN — One of the most fierce rivalries in collegiate football is bc- Cween Texas and Texas A. & M.

R. mm MOTOR co. Your Dodge-Plymouth Dealer Phone 58 Ark. By NEA Service WASHlNGTON.-Col. Charles B'red- .rick Berthoid Price, the commander of the Fourth Marines, who halted a Japanese incursion into the Marine- defeated area at Shanghai, is a product of nearly nine years of foreign service in Cuba, Nicaragua, France and China. Swarthy complexion, black hair and dark eyes, together with a fluent knowledge of Spanish, cause Colonel Price to be often mistaken for a Spaniard, and have won him the affectin- ate nickname among intimates of "Spig.' His manner is crisp, direct and bJunt, and he has considerable proficiency in Chinese, acquired in aboct four years' service there. A natural tinquist, he also is fluent in French and Germ/m. Colonel Price was born in Germany, Septemhci- IH, 1881, and was graduated from the Marine Corps School at Annapolis in i'JUfi, after appointment from Pemifylvruiia. He also was graduated at the field officers' service course of Ihe general staff school at Washington. His first foreign srevice, aside from nearly two years' sea duty, was with the Cuban army of occupation in 1906. Four times he was sent to Nicaragua on missions concerned with the conduct of elections, .service requiring considering diplomatic ability. He was in France with the A. £. F. He first was sent to China with tho American I_.egatif>n gutirtl, urtd naw is .serving a second two-year assignment in China. Associates in the corps regard Colonel Price as an excellent officer. With him in Shanghai is his wife, D»lly, and their lyo children. Mrs. Col. Charles B. I'rice, commander of the Fourth Kegiment of U. S. Marines, and veteran of many campaigns as his service bars indicate, halted the advance of Japanese troops into 4 district of Shanghai's International Settlement guarded by his command, by personally demanding the Japanese commander withdraw his me« im- inediately from the are*.

"Tell the child that just before the real St. Nichols died he culled in all his friends nnd said, 'carry on for me so no little boy or girl will be sad on Christmas day.' Thai will satisfy the child's wonderment over so many Santa Clauses." A college professor had checked out T a li'itel i'lid, when a few blocks away, rcali/ed that be had left his umbrella.

D EATH rode at tho shoulder 'of the pilot who fought to bring a ,"wooden lung" to a western hospital where doctors were confronted with a grim decision. Physicians of the Steole Memorial Hospital In Denver watched \!ilh anxious eyes two children stricken with paralyzed lungs. Both needed the hospital's only respirator, it they were to be saved. Both could lire only a short time outside It. The need for another respirator •wns vl^nl, for should both children suffer a sinking spell at the same time, or within mlnules of one another, doctors would be called upon to decide which one of the children should live. Over the telegraph wires crackled tho grim story. Teletype machines pounded It out in airports throughout the country. Most convenient was found to be a small wooden respirator In Toronto. Hospital officials did not hesitate a moment, but placed U aboard an airliner. Through (ho night the plane ronred, bearing Its life giving cargo. Shortly before dawn, the plane glided down to Denver's municipal airport. 'Even as Its motors were utill turning over, a firo department truck raced across the field, transferred the respirator, and careened toward the hospital. Bach child was placed in a respirator, and though one, too far gone for the aid of science, died, a stirring light of tho airlines against death was recorded In the hearts Of thousands.

Road conditions are of little concern to him. Wet or dry. witlc or narrow pavement, his one idea is to "beat" the car ahead.

But Willie diicsn't always escape an accident. Besides numerous sideswiping encounters, sooner or later he meets with another speedy cat- head-on. In five representative states last year, from 15 to 32 per cent of accidents were caused by driving on the wrong side of the road. Better take your time, Willie, and stay alive!
