Imitates Saxophone Herbert, who imitates the saxophone, manages to produce a true effect by the use of his lips, which he manipulates according to the tone he desires. Donald, who sings the lead, has learned all the tricks of his senior brothers and when it is necessary to modulate he can carry on with any of the imitations. In the repertoire of the Mills Brothers, they mimic the tuba, sax- ophone, trumpet, trombone, clarinet, bassoon and oboe. The guitar they use is one they bought many years ago from a large mail order house. They regard it as a mascot and would not part wi(h it for any money.

It is surprising to note that they all are very young John is 23, Herbert 22, Harry 21 and Donald is 20. When they appear today on the stage of the Fox theatre the Mills Brothers will present their new novelty song, "The Old Man of the Mountains," which has been re imitates the tuba, said: "I manage to do this by forming the largest possible room in my mouth and puckering the lips so that when the oompah Is ready to come out it not only has the tone of the tuba but also the volume. Getting very close to the microphone helps. Harry Mills, who imitates the trumpet, explains his technique as follows: "I cup- my hands around the mouth and nose. When the air comes out with the sound it is in a much higher pitch than it ordinarily would be.

I studied the sci- four boys could produce the effects of a regular orchestra without the aid of any instrument other than the guitar and the use of their lips and hands. Skeptics by the hundreds were invited into the studios at each broadcast to witness the truth of this phenomenal feat. Radio and Broadway columnists daily wrote of their' intriguing harmonies and weird effects. The public rapidly was convinced that they actually accomplish their style of orchestrated singing with the use of only the hands, voices and a guitar. John Mills, who so excellentlj Four Mills Brothers, Noted Radio Stars, Here in Person Famous Quartet of Air Will Be Contribution of Fox Theatre Toward Entertainment of Visitors to Tucson's La Fiesta De Los Vaqueros The seemingly impossible will be accomplished today at the Fox theatre when the Mills Brothers are seen and heard in person by Tucson audiences.

Up until a week ago when the announcement of their coming was made, no one even dreamed that such a tremendous attraction would come to the city the size of Tucson due mainly to the fact that The annual snake dance of the Hopi Indians is considered one of the most spectacular rituals In America. Douglas is third largest city In Arizona. they had never done so before. 'When a Man's a By World Famous Tucson Writer, to Be Shown It is appropriate that a local theatre should present during rodeo week a film version of a story from Tucson's pwn famous author, Harold BeU Wright. In presenting "When A Man's A Man," the Fox theatre brings the first talking picture ever made from one of Mr.

Wright's novels. Several have been produced In silent movies, however. There will be four or five per formances' of the Mills Brothers today, according to the requirements of the crowds. The doors will open immediately following the parade, about 11:30. Popular prices will prevail throughout the day.

The Mills Brothers are the Fox theatre's contribution to the enter- tainment program for rodeo visitors. These "four boys and a guitar" have made one of the greatest meteoric rises in the annals of radio. Their appearance on a sustaining program and an immediate sign-up on a "commercial" already is a matter of radio history.

"Babes in Toyland" Cagney In "The St. Louis Kid" is Our Stage Harold Bell Wright needs no introduction In any section of the country, much less the great southwest, where he has lived for so many years and of which he has written so many successful stories.

"When A Man's A Man" is particularly appropriate at this time of the year inasmuch as it deals with an easterner's experiences at a western rodeo on an Arizona ranch. Sixteen million At ricans of all types and ages have read from cover to cover the fascinating Harold Bell Wright classic "When A Man's A Man." From all indications, at least three times this number will enjoy the Fox Film adaptation of this masterpiece. It plays a one-day engagement at the Fox theatre Saturday. Universal appeal Is what both book and picture possess. The stereotyped version of the west as peopled by desert rats lurking through the sage brush of the dry lands is abandoned; in place is a vibrant story of modern youth involved in I WfSv i x-'fyphtf a vital romance.

The setting is an Arizona ranch, to which comes a mysterious easterner, short of money, obviously the gentleman, but silent on his past. He is befriended by a hardened westerner, changes from playboy to a rugged "man's man," and finds himself in the dilemma of his lifetime when he realizes that his best friend and himself are rivals for the hand of the same girl. Before turning to writing Harold Bell Wright knew the typical American man and woman as few others knew them. In "When A Man's A Man" he poured his rich knowledge of the west and of the conflicts and romance that arise, far from urban artificialities. Around George O'Brien are featured Dorothy Wilson and Paul Kelly in a cast composed of Harry Woods.

Jimmy Butler, Richard Carlisle, Clarence Wilson and Edgar Norton.
