THE COURIER-JOURNAL', LOUISVIIXE, WEDNESDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 8, 1937. SECTION I 8 Big Apple, French Can-Can a United In 'The Canned Apple9 Paris, Dec. 7 (U.P.) Adelaide Hall, a dusky dancer from Brooklyn, took a few shakes from the Biff1 'Apple tonight and tossed them in with the naughtiest movements of the French Cancan, called it "The Canned Apple" and dared the folks back home to imitate it. The hybrid "Canned Apple" will have its premiere tomorrow night in one of Pigalle hot-spots ol - Montmarte when the Big Apple Cafe opens with the double attraction of free drinks and Adelaide.

The Brooklyn dancer, who came to Paris ten years ago with Josephine Baker and the "Blackbirds" show troupe, had intended to give the Parisians an out-and- out Big Apple. "But to the French, who have been accustomed to the Can-can with its difficult athletic gyrations for more than fifty-years, the Big Apple would look like child's play" she said. "So we had to make the Big Apple more difficult." Adelaide was sure "The Canned Apple" wouldn't get very far back home. "Oh, no, not because it is so difficult," she said, "but you see, it has to be done with the same costumes that Can-can dancers wear. YoU know, lace-trimmed panties with black silk hose and side garters. Adelaide wears a little some thing above the lace-trimmed do- dads, but the Can-can girls at the Bal Tabann don t. . "When the dancers of the Canned Apple move into a circle everyone must kick straight over their, heads, holding their shm to their nose, and when the dance reaches its climax everyone leaps into the air and comes down in a split." $595 BUYS This Combination RADIO DEAL EASY TERMS GRUIIOW TELEDIAL Model 589 IDEAL for home, office or travel. 550 to 1,600 kilocycles.

They have been encamped 200 days compiling weather data and had expected to remain until May or June. Their ice island has drifted more than 740 miles from the pole and now is entering an unexplored region, so it is considered best to quit. They "won't be ashamed to return to the mainland since we have collected ,much valuable data," Expedition Leader - Evan Papanin radioed today. The four, probably will be removed soon by plane, but a spare radio is rigged on a sled for use if a sudden ice jam forces them to move quickly.

JA 8358 4th and Walnut "A SO - year - old financial institution with ofice in principal cities. 0 Pinckneyville, 111., Dec. 7 G?) A clean, sweet current of air, sweeping through a dank maze of tunnels, led 28-year-old Lawrence Lee to safety today after he had been lost in a coal mine for forty-one hours. The mine bookkeeper, who disappeared in the Briar Hill work ings Sunday afternoon, followed the air current until he reached an air shaft in an adjoining mine, one of several connected by a labyrinth of tunnels covering eight square miles. H Diggers coming to work heard his shouts from the bottom of the shaft. His clothing ripped and his legs torn ana bleeding, the young bookkeeper was taken home and put to bed to rest. His wife and their small daughter had main tained a constant vigil at the mine entrance while rescue squads searched the rambling tunnels. Lees cousin, Deputy Sheriff i Howard Lee, relayed this first-person account from the rescued man: "I went into the mine to ex plote some new workings and to bring out some empty powder kegs, I counted the rooms as I went so I wouldn't lost my way. t-oming back, however, I mis counted somehow and got lost. "I wandered around until my carbide lamp went out. Then I lost my matches. The only light I had .was the sparks from the flint in my lamp. I flashed the flint occasionally, but finally it wore out. l lost all track of time and became extremely hungry. "I wandered into the tunnels of the No. 6 Mine, where the fans were operating. As soon as I felt the current of air, I knew I could find my way out by following it. I crawled along with the wind blowing in my face until I came to the air shaft. "I shouted up the shaft. Then they called down from the sur face and I told them who I was. They told me to wait there. Then they came down the main shaft and got me." Large Still Is Confiscated In Nelson County One of the largest moonshine distilling plants seized in many months in Kentucky was taken by agents of the Alcohol Tax Unit Tuesday afternoon in Nelson County, in the Beech Fork neigh borhood, the agents notified their superior, William II.

Action Pledged To Make Taxes More Fair Dougliton Hits Critics Of Excess Profits Levy Just In Time for Xmas !J ZING DETROIT STAR' I a r in i m ati am Arrrn i e - 4MW W 1 Washington, Doc. 7 (U.R) Chair man Robert L. Doughton, Demo crat, North Carolina, of the House Ways and Means Committee, to day assailed critics of the undis tributed profit tax for lack of constructive substitutes and pledged himself to work for its re vision to be effective January 1 1938." Doughton pledged action on the tax system in a statement sent to the convention of the National As sociation of Tax Administrators at Atlantic City. Senate Blamed. In a speech he previously was scheduled to make before the con vention, he had promised to make the Federal tax structure "more fair." Doughton blamed the Senate for hardships in the undistributed profits tax, pointing out that the bill passed by the House in 1936 contained several cushions to pro tect debt-ridden corporations and small companies in need of re pairing their capital structure. Warning Given. "The Senate did not agree to the. 3 relief provisions, he said "and while their amendment to this provision of the House bill was vigorously contested by the House conferees, the dire neces sity for prompt passage of the bill and the revenue needs which confronted us forced our ac ceptance of the Senate's position to which it grimly held." Doughton . warned, however, against "deluding ourselves with hopes for a substantial curtail ment of taxes in the near future."
