Wishful thinking? Well, not quite. For today that same young man. Oil City's own Earl Holliman, plays important roles in four new pictures in Hollywood and it's reasonable to assume that all four will be screened at the Strand. How did all of this come about? Earl credits a haircut at the Paramount Studio barber shop as the start of his actual motion picture career. He had just been turned down for a role at the studio for about the 10th time, for the usual reason, "You just don't look the part." Dejected, Earl sank into a chair at the studio's tonsorial parlor. v tr ' illlllllf? .v; ! ( j ON WITH THE SHOW By PERICLES ALEXANDER OPENING WEDNESDAY MA.IESTIC: "Oneration Secret ' Hittlon.

His wide-awake board of directors were loath to let the matter be filed away for future consideration. Quicker than you can say Circus Maximus or its Shreveport equivalent, the Municipal Auditorium, the board framed a stronglv- v.-orded, well-phrased resolution of action. It reads as follows: "Be it resolved that the Shreveport Symphony society, realizing the urgent necessity for an adequate and modern concert hall not only for its own orchestra but for visiting concert artists and road show attractions and, deploring present discouraging conditions under which such artists and attractions must now be presented, goes on record as willing to join in a civic movement for a new auditorium meeting the requirements and taste of a discriminating and metropolitan Ark-La-Tex populace.

Colonel O Ferrall and his confreres have taken the words right out of On With the Shows Underwood but that doesn't leave him exactly speechless.

Let's call her "Gyp" to rhyme with her onetime occupation on the runways. In 1940 this entertainer, actress-authoress, reigned as "Queen of the Midway" of the Louisiana State Fair. Among her literary efforts, she authored the book. "Mother Finds a Body." Her books are usually of the mystery variety, which explains in 6hort order that title.
