Just like a thriller filmed in Hollywood, Little Dorothy Jane Ramsey is kidnaped in the first scene of Hope's own local jranp; comedy, a two reeler, which will be shown at the Saenger Theater Thursday and Friday. The comedy was filmed in Hope by Melton Barker of Hollywood, Calif., and the characters are children from Hope and siirround- The film begins with Little Miss Rumsey being kidnaped and carried off to a Miss Marion Crutchfiekl, her sister, reports the kidnaping and the pang 1 pets busy at once. One little boy is told that he is too small to go on the hunt and he organizes a gang of his own—but you should see the picture yourself and get the details of how this gang found the kidnaped girl and dwelt justly with the kidnapers. A few specialty numbers are included. You'll miss a real treat if you fail to see these 70 children in their first movie. The comedy is scheduled in addition to the regular feature: Jack Holt in "Under Suspicion."

Army on Wheels and Wings Aiimy More Efficient Now Than Any Period in Peace-Time Boy Is Freed, Hunt Kidnapers By ALEXANDER tt. GEOIUJE AP Feature Scrvcle tyrlter WASHINGTON, - Back of Uncle Uncle Sam's bottle fleets is the nation's secondary defense — const artillery nnd .fortifications, n smnll but highly mo•bile army and an increasingly potent nir force. '• 'Isolated from potential enemy countries in Europe and Asia and on very friendly terms with neighboring Canada nnd Mexico, the United States has not felt that it needed a huge peacetime conscript army such as places a tremendous financial burden on nearly every other major country. Since this peace-minded nation has depended primarily on n stalwart navy to hold off nn agrcssor, the secondary defense has been a comparatively weak link in the line of resistance to possible enemy attack. However, there has been a steady strengthening of the army since the waning of international disarmament hnpe.i about five years ago. Still .smnll in numbers, it is rated by the army high command as more efficient today than at any other period in its ixiace- time history. New Planes Hutlt There has been tremendous progress in professional skill, mobility, modernization of weapons and equipment. Scacoast defenses nrc being modernized, tanks and motorized artillery are high speed, infantry with semi-automatic shoulder rifles arc being reorganized in new, streamlined halations. Most striking advances have been in aircraft. The army now has 1,000 new planes, and another 1,000 under order. The 1,000 new planes are rated on n par in efficiency with those of any power and the new "flying fortresses" are The Far East situation having raised the issue of U. S. rights. Punchdrunk Willie insists a few good lefts also should be arranged for. Strange thing about collectors. A fiendish philatelist usually is willing to cancel everything else for a good stamp. Researchers say the nation's toll of lost youth rises ama/.ingly. not even including the women who won't tell their age. Britain has asked Tokio for some real war remedies, suggesting Ihut Ihere are loo many headaches in the armor- plale typo of pill box. Ijiltle Willie snys he doesn't care what happens to treaties as lohg as no mie disregards the "Santa" clause.

Hope Star "irreducible minimum" defense is 14,600 officers and 165,000 men. National guard troops number 192,000, the defense objective being 210,000. Congress has been appropriating nearly a half billion dollars yearly to strengthen the army. Military experts say, however, that an expenditure of about $150,000,00 Oon materials is needed now to bring army defense up to "comfortable security" stage. Probably the most important development in the secondary defense since the World war has been the building up of an Officer's Reserve corp, now 96,500 strong. Carefully worked out defense plans call for a speedy, wartime expansion of the army with these reserve officers providing a valuable training nucleus for hundreds of thousand of recruits. Gas Defense Adequate Our artillery, mostly of the French 75 type, which is being modernized for high speed towage, ranks well with other n«tions. French artillery technique, however, has long been rated the world's finest. | U. S. anli-aircraft guns are among the best but the supply, army officers , say, is not satisfactory. No particuar plans, it is said, have been made for use of gas as a weapon but the army has concentrated on gas defense and developed a satisfactory mask. ( Railway artillery and other big guns,' which can be moved quickly, protect threatened areas between fixed coast defenses. Supplementing these in swift defense service is the new General Headquarters Air force which by 1940 Li slated to reach full strength of 1,000 up-to-the-minute- combat planes. This mighty sky-squadron, under a single, centralized command, is prepared for swift, emergency action at any danger point. If New York, Soa- attle or other "frontier" spot were menaced by enemy warships or planes, a powerful unit of the GHQ would be immediately concentrated for their defense. i Protection Measures Intensive motorization, phis excellent highwoys, has made troop movement to most sectors of thc country incredibly fast compared with World war standards.
