14 THE COURIER-JOURNAL, LOUISVILLE, KY. SUNDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 21, 1947. SECTION 1 Excellent Cast Brings 'Voice Of the Turtle' Back to Louisville never seen "The Voice of the Turtle" perhaps found it just as amusing and daring as have so many who have seen it time and time again. It is still running in New York and, despite the unseasonable theater-going weather of yesterday its second visit to Louisville undoubtedly was a profitable one. f f $ if - V I el-Z II LLrtZ I 1 2l I I In J 1 Tax Revenues Up 17 Pet. In Kentucky' 2-Month Collections Total 812,461,803.45 Frankfort, Ky., Sept. 20 (JP) Tax collections in Kentucky are running 17.2 per cent ahead of last year's record-breaking page, the revenue department said today. Receipts from all sources, including road revenues, totaled $12,461,803.45 during July and August, first two monthS of the 1947-48 fiscal year, compared to $10,636,608.96 for the same months of the previous year. The 50 per cent drop in the distilled-spirits consumption-tax receipts has been more than offset by the jump in income-tax payments which are up 97.6 per cent, the department said. The liquor-consumption levy for the past two months amounted to $430,555.31, against $876,189.49 for July and August of last year. Individuals" income taxes total $646,220.40 for the first two months of this year, compared to $491,642.41 for the same months last year. Corporation income taxes climbed from $543,636.84 for July and August of 1946 to $1,399,400.53 for July and August of 1947. One Arrested As Bookie. Arrested yesterday at 1556 W. Oak, Harrison F. Rush, 39, was charged writh operating a GOVERNOR WILLIS GOVERNOR TOWNSEND GOVERNOR CALDWELL GOVERNOR GATES the frank way in which John Van Druten did it in this comedy. Those are the ones who berated me last season for saying that Mr. Van Druten made promiscuity seem delightful. But I still hold that he does just that in this play by a delicate, workmanlike job of fitting character into situation and not offending too many too much. The trio that presented the play last night had the edge a little on the one that visited us last season. Haila Stoddard, who plays Sally Middleton now, doesn't try to imitate Margaret Sullavan as some of her followers have done. Consequently the Sally of last night had an individuality all her own. Philip Faversham, as the at-loose-ends sergeant on a week end pass, seems a normal human being who might reasonably be a scion of a rich family with a college education behind him. He plays naturally and smoothly and with a great deal of manly tenderness which would appeal to a girl of Sally's sensitive and emotional nature. I particularly liked the spontaneity which he gave to the role and his build-up from timidity, at the beginning, to an arresting aggressiveness toward the end of the comedy. Just Enough Brashness. Sheila Bromley, as the third member of the triangular cast, is a pretty, vital, young woman who gives Olive just the amount of brashness she is supposed to have. Those in the audience who had 4 Governors Named for Forum On '48 Children to Register For Dance 'Programs The City Recreation Division soon will resume a fall and winter dancing program for children. Children from 3 to 14 may register Monday, September 29, at Belknap School; Wednesday, October 1, at Stephen Foster School; Thursday, October 2, at Emmet Field School, and Friday, October 3, at Henry Clay School. Mrs. Mary Louise Zellich will instruct in ballet and tap dancing. Eisenhower Is Doomed Washington, Sept. 20 (JP) Senator Pepper (D., Fla.), considered by some as a possible candidate for the post himself, said today General Dwight D. Eisenhower would suit him as the Democratic vice-presidential nominee, "if that meets the approval of the President." British Romanian Envoy Named. London, Sept. 20 (JP) Adrian Holman, British political representative in Romania, has been appointed-minister to the former Axis satellite state, the British Foreign Office announced tonight, v WiIlis,Tlmrmoiid, Gates, Caldwell On WHAS Panel Along what lines the 1943 presidential campaign will form should be indicated in a radio discussion scheduled for Thursday night, October 2, at Memorial Auditorium.

He was elected County attorney in 1922 and has been interested in Republican Party work ever since. His service in the Navy in World War I, from which he emerged a lieutenant, has resulted in his vital interest in war veterans.

Since becoming Governor in 1944 he has carried through many State Argentina Quads Born; One and Mother- Die Tucuman, Argentina, Sept. 20 (JP) Quadruplets were born here today to Mrs. Maria Angelica Pedraza de Soria, but the mother and one of the four infants, all boys, died a few hours after birth of the last.

Presented yesterday afternoon and night at Memorial Auditorium with this cast: Sally MiddlPton Haila Stoddard Olive Lashbrooke Sheila Bromlev Bill Page Philip Faversharh By BOYD MARTIN Yesterday's weather was not the best for the playing of "The Voice of the Turtle" for in the opinion of many Mr. Van Druten's comedy carries its own mixture of sultry and high temperature. But the cast which brought the comedy to Louisville for a second time worked nobly and perspired in proportion to its efforts. By this time "The Voice of the Turtle" is a little dated. The war is over; there are not as many servicemen to be entertained by accommodating young women as formerly. But the universal theme of boy meeting girl and doing something about it will probably we with us to the end of time. So, there is still interest in this comedy in which Van Druten was bold enough to draw a true picture of a situation which might reasonably happen even w-hen a war is not going on. His Views Haven't Changed. There are many who do not believe that the theater should hold the picture up to nature in . . on tr i 5 ' V I r group meeting of Mayors, coun- - sultants will be Carl H.
