PAGE SIX HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Friday, December 2<i, 1037 Mystery Comedy at Rialto Sunday Hubert Herbert and Allen Jenkins in "Sh! the Octopus" Those two expert portrayers of screen dumbness, Hugh Herbert and Allen Jenkins, will be seen on the screen, at the Rialto starting Sunday in what is described as the goofiest mystefy-farce they have ever attempter. "Sh! The Octopus." \ The <jity to whose detective depart- I ment they are attached is in the j clutches of an "Octopus of Crime." It j is up to Hughie and Al to find and destroy this creature. Its lair is found to be an abandoned lighthouse several miles out at sea. Here, to their amazement, the stupid detectives find a real octopus, which has a nasty habit of thrusting a tentacle through a crevice in the wall and entwining it about one or the other of the dicks. Occasionally a corpse it found. More frequently there are screams of women, crashes of thunder, blinding flashes of lightning. Yet between all these nerVe-chilling scenes the unbelievably dumb maneuvers of Herbert and Jenkins bring bursts of laughter. Feminine interest in the show is carried along by Marcia Ralston, a lovely brunette newcomer to the screen. If Santa's Late, Here's Why! Open air is clean compared to house air, which is contaminated with dust, mould and microbes. Less than half of the Orkney islands off the Scottish coast are inhabited. What a break Santa Glaus gets in Miami Beach, Fla.l Its enough to make him forget how hot his costume is in the tropical sunshine when lovely Elaine Caraway, left, and Virginia Crawford perch on his knees. And if you suspect that's a press afeont behind those whiskers, vou're an old mcany who doesn't believe in Santa Glaus. Responsibility Is (Continued from Page One) also that a new policing unit had also brought quiet to Nanking, China's fallen capital. A new "autonomous commission," composed of obscure Chinese but sponsored by the Japanese army, held sway in Nanking while Japanese forces drew closer about Hangchow. capit'il of Chekiang province. 100 miles southwest of Shanghai. Japanese officials said the Nanking commission was intended primarily to be an administrative unit for the district, taking over local functions of hte regime of Gen. Chiang Kai-Shek which fled the former capital a month ago. Japanese officers, a.sked whether the commission was to be considered as replacing the old Nanking government, replied, "That is possible, although it is too early to say." Butterf.es exist to within 500 miles of the North Pole.
