WALTER WINCHELL Coast-To-Coast (Copyright, 1948. by The Hearst Corporation) Around The Clock A public-spirited, housing-minded local resident called TJ-JK NIOWS Tuesday to suggest for tlie public that tlio second flooi 1 of the Pearson home on Central avenue, now owned by the School Department, he used as an apartment. .. ."Apparently only the first floor will he used by tin- school," said the woman. "Why not use the second floor for something that's badly needed right now—housing:'" . . . We think the lady should make her suggestion to the school board, in writing. —oOo— The Xangatiifk American Legion state champions left Nangatnck Monday morning, filled with elation and high spirits at the opportunity which the state and local post 17 was presenting them. Tlie trip down was uneventful, although the run through Grand Central Station, with only 1G minutes allowance between trains was slightly humorous. Coach Ciubby Cowan and Scorer Bill Schmeleke drew the entire sympathy of the thousands gathered, in (he huge station, as they staggered up one ramp and through the station down another, laden with nof only tlieir outage hut also IS hard ball bats and 50 baseballs. After finding seats on the Glens Falls bound train the boys once more settled down, playing cards and making- acquaintances among- the other three Legion teams who were also aboard the crowded cars. Dinner was eaten on the train and shortly after'their noon repast, they rolled into Glens Falls. Difficulties were experienced then when (he living quarters which the local Legion had golten for them were termed no! fit for humans. Taking things into their own hands, the hoys, with the permission of Manager Kddie Nolde, scoured the community and eventually found quarters veritably fit for n king in an old fashioned home that had been reconverted into a lodge. The locals, along with the three other teams, were feted at a banquet that evening, after which apologies were tendered them, and promises were made that the boys would thoroughly enjoy their remaining stay there. And so ended their first evening-, as they wandered to the local green to listen to a band concert, and at 10;30 p, m, a check found all of the athletes in their rooms and in bed thinking- of their game on the morrow. —oOo— I'alrolman George Smith is en.joying his annual vacation. ., .W.

Reviewer Finds "The Curtain Rises" Charming One of the most charming presentations of the stage, "The Curtain Kiscs," opened Tuesday night at -the Litchflcld Summer .Theater for a five-day run, with the near capacity audience placing Its mark of approval upon Its merits with generous response. Top honors go to Snrallo Bodge, who as the ugly duckling Elsa Karling, turned in an admirable performance. She portrayed an amaz- inzly sympathetic and humorous character in her opening scenes, later to be transformed into a cultured lady of society. Although the supporting cast, gave her able assistance, hers was by far the most outstanding performance, Set In Vienna, "The Curtain Rises" shows Klsa in search of romance to brighten her life. Handsome Gene Lyons, playing -the part of Elsa's acting teacher, Franz Germann, with whom she falls in • love, gives an agreeable exhibition. His nonchalant, and yet confident attitude Is most pleasing. As Wilhelm Mcisslnger, the matinee idol with whom Elsa some day hopes to play love scenes, Lawrence Sladc presents a skillful caricature of the pompous, conceited ham actor. Vei-n Armstrong as Rudolf Dortmund, and Sylvia Stone as Thona L.indorf. fire an engaged couple, who with John Martin as Arny Zander, a newspaper man, and Mimi Palmer as the maid, arc all capable assistants.
