May Robson Star of Saenger Film "Three Kids and a Queen" Is a Dramatic and Tearful Comedy What is the greatest thing in'life? Is it wealth? Is !( love? Is it a group of true friends? Or is it some other thing which lies within one's own self? May Robson eventually discovered that it is not wealth, for in her latest' picture. "Three Kids and a Queen," now playing at the Saenger theater, she plays tho role of a tremendously wealthy woman—and still she Is far from being happy. Seventy years of ige, she but dimly realizes that the cause of her unhappiViess is something and happened when was a young girl. And so she has gone through life with her natural good humor weighted down with n depressing blanket of bitterness and temper. But happiness comes to the disillusioned old maid as a direct result of u runaway accident in the park, a period of unconsciousness when she is thrown out of her carriage, and an awakening that comes in the front- ! room barber shop of-a basement flat on the East Side. Thus begins a strange chain of events that alternates between thrilling drama and situations of the most delighted comedy. Miss Robson's supporting cast in "Three Kids and a Queen" includes Frankie Darro, William Benedict, Billy Burrud, Charlotte Henry, Henry Armetta, Laurence Grant, Herman Bing, Hedda Hopper and John Miljan.

The Cotillion club entertained at n very delightful Tea Dance on Christman afternoon from 4:30 to 8:30 at the Hope Country club. The dance room was decorated with Christmas greens and punch was served throughout the hours from a beautifully decorated table. An open fire burned in the club room and the beautiful afternoon gowns of the dancers added much to the festivities. About 35 couples, including a number of out of town guests danced by candle light. Chaperones for this delightful affair were Mrs. L. W. Young, Mrs. A. F. Huncgan, Mrs. R. T. White and Mrs. P.

They were By BYUON PRICE Chief of Bureau, The Associated Press, Washington Widely-advertised predictions that the congressional session beginning in January will end in April have a hollow sound when the tasks ahead are considered. The appropriation bills alone require weeks of work. It is questionable whether any past congress has found budgetary problems quite so controversy-laden as they will be in 103G. Apparently the tax bill, passed last session is to be overhauled in some particulars. Tax legislation always is time-consuming, and it promises to be particularly so if the subject is reopened in the current atmosphere of government-business conflict. The impression is general that the supreme court will throw out AAA, and that a new farm program will have to be worked out. Other "new deal" laws also are in judicial jeop-i arcly, and the need for a variety of stop-gap legislation is not improbable. The bonus bill already has been given a place on the calendar. A revamping of tho new neutrality act is assured. The Townsend plan again is kickinp at the door. Besides. 1938 is a campaign year. In campaign year congress gets oven more than the ordinary pleasure out of hearing itself talk. Tcwnseiul Strength Unless the advance indications arc misleading, the bonus and the Townsend old-age pension plan are destined to make special trouble for tlie administration strategists. The bonus advocates have been reorganizing. The opposition appears to have no hope of stopping passable by both senate and house, and current surveys raise a doubt whether enough votes can be mustered to uphold a presidential veto. . Washington is hearing surprising things about the Townsend movement, whose leaders are playing the clever game of staying out of presidential politics and concentraing on congress. The west remains tlie Townsend stronghold—it is reported that in Cal- collecting the war debts. The papers every day were filled with contributing to the impossible job of paying relief out of charity. Walter Teagle was driving ahead with his share->the- work movement. The Japanese were starting their war In Jehol. The technocrats had the nation by the ears. Huey Long was flourishing through his first filibuster. Adolph Hitler was taking over power in Germany. And as the banks closed all around us, presaging the coming crisis, farmers were threatening to hang sheriffs anc judges who foreclosed on mortgages Then as the dark clouds came down lower and hung wider and more terrible over the American scene, as if to add the poetic finale to the ending of an era, Calvin Coolidge, the apostle of the dying period, breathed his last in Northampton. Thus was the present era ushered in. We have to go back and remember the appalling havoc which four years had wrought among us. Between New Year's, 1929, and New Year's, 1933, by some mysterious fource. FOURTEEN BILLION DOLLARS of bank deposits had been wiped out. What became of all this money? people asked. What indeed! It just vanished into the atmosphere of which, in fact, it was made. Now we are fretting a bit because the government is spending a few bil- llions a year more or less. But these^ fourteen billions went far more ef fectively than if the government had taken them by taxation. Had the gov- ernmen taken them, hey would have collected them from one set of people, spent them instantly and in the next month the money would be right back in the cash registers and bank accounts of, business. As it was the billions were not merely shifted about. They were abolished. Business Loss Immense On that New Year's Day of 1933, as we looked back over the factories, the shops, the stores, the railroads anl farms of the nation, we saw that they had done FOUR HUNDRED BILLION DOLLARS less gross business in 1928. Four hundred billion dollars—a billion and a third a day! That. 1932 Christmas was a lean one. In the year just ending the workers of the nation had seen their pay envelopes cut by TWENTY-ONE BILLION DOLLARS. The Christmas bonuses were mighty few, if there were any. American business saw its profits cut, by millions. In 1928 business cut a ?3,300,000,000 melon. In 1932 the melon had shrunk to ?776,000,000. And moving disconsolote, close to dispair, among our people were fourteen million idle men and women. And another ten million perhaps living below the margin of subsistence on sweat-shop wages and part-time jobs. This was the dark scene which brought that last era to its end. It was one of the most amazing tumbles ever made by any nation in peace. United for Emergency The gay optimism of : 1.928.,hatl given way first, to the half aniusod, half philosophcial optimism of 1929 when everyone imagined that the crash was just an interlude of readjustment. But now this in turn gave way to a strange pessimism in those hectic 100 days which followed New Year's 1933. But, oddly enough, there was no rise oi : revolutionary spirit. People turned rather to the government and claimed its protection. Then, as the new administration came into power and, under the imperious pressure of the crisis, found itself, whether it wished it or not, 4 Death Suspects Held in^exarkana Body of .Unidentified White Man Found With Deep Gash in Throat GREENVILLE, Texas.—(^-Greenville authorities believe a young man found slain and robed in the Texarkana (Ark.) railroad yards Thursday was W.

But other sections are being heard from, too. A Townsendite has won a surprise Republican nomination for congress in Michigan. Congressmen from Texas and Massachusetts recently have disclosed that they were receiving petitions by the thousands from their constituents. Last session the Townsend plan received only 56 house votes. All quarters expect an increase next session, and there is lively speculation wheth- reigning pessimism. As plan after plan of the New Deal burst upon the first pages of the papers, the most astonishing unity revealed itself among the people behind the new leaders. Here is what had happened, essentially: (1) Business, which was retreat and in disrepute. (2) The policy of laissez-faive was completely ve pudiated by almost everybody. (3 The responsibility if the govevnmen to rescue the nation by a positive program of relief and recovery was everywhere admitted. (4) Governmen money for nearly every crippled industry was made available. (5) The emergence of the central government as the responsible agent of economic control was also everywhere admitted. Now, after more than two years of the New Deal, a change has taken place in the scene. Business, having recovered its spirit a little, has turned in revolt against th(^ administration. er the increase may whelming. not be over- Republican Plans We Prescribe An old greeting, cheerfully administered.

We Give Eagle Stamps Phone 84 In spite of the fact that they are far outnumbered, senate and house Republicans may present a comprehensive legislative program of their own, and, insist on debating it ai length. There are strong reasons why some of the minority leaders want to follow such u course—not fully committing the party, perhaps, but at least making an affirmative showing from the Republican side. The constant Democratic complaint has been that the opposition merely finds fault, without offering anything constructive. It is argued that the only logical reply for the Republicans is lo introduce a group of legislative proposals and let the party in power take the responsibility of turning them down. These are only a few of the things which raise up serious questions about predictions for an early adjournment. Some of the older heads on capitol hill will be content if the session ends in time for the national political conventions, late. 1 in June.

She saw the telegram. knocked out or are passing into inevitable abandonment. The population may be said fairly to have lost its relish for those policies, save for government money, but the President's hold on the electorate is not yet shaken to the point of being really endangered. Business is rising and he is getting the credit for it. The Republican party, so badly shattered by the defeats of 1932 and 1934, is undergoing some rehabilitation. A powerful movement has taken form against the President's spending and borrowing program. Another great guestion arises—the old struggle between the states and the central government. Bu his time Big Busi* ness becomes he champion of the constitution and of states rights. Just ahead loom more perilous issues. The Townsend plan, a scheme to pay out $21,000,000,000,000 a year in old age pensions, is gaining strength. The Frazier-Lempke plan to pay farm mortgage* wild currency—$2,500,000,000 of inflation—has to be met. The bonus bill is in tlie offing. Townsend, Frazier- Lempke, the Legion, Relief— these are the Four Horsemen of Inflation. And to give point to all of this, we now move into a presidential election year. The New Deal must this year face the tribunal of the people and answer for its stewardship. As it does so, the nation, in a changed mood toward the New Deal but moving pleasantly up the vising curve of the businets cycle, is actually preparing—so at least it thinks—to enjoy a little boom. Has any political party in power been defeated in a year of boom?
