TUESDAY, JANUARY 4, 1938. THE MORNING HERALD, HAGERSTOWN, MARYLAND. HEPBURN STARRED IN MARYLAND FILM "Stage Door" with Splendid Cast Pleases Audiences One of the strongest and most significant star combinations of recent years comes to the screen with Katharine Hepburn, (linger liogers anil Adolphe Mcnjon, in the lop aiiots of nko liailio's "Slago Door," the current Maryland film. All three stars are ideally cast — M'ss HeplMirn as a stage-struck society girl, Menjou as a smart Hroadway impressario, while Miss Rogers hangs up her dancing shoes (except for one scene) in favor of fi sparkling colllody role—that of a wise-cracking night club entertainer. "Stage Door" is RKO Radio's screen adaptation of the New York stage success by George Kaufman and Edna Ferher. Pandro M. Her- nmn selected as director Gregory Ija Cava, who directed the smash hit "My Han Godfrey," The action o? "Stage Door" takes place in a typical New York theatrical boavd- inr house, in a smart night club, in the offices of a Broadway producer, in the palatial home of a society leader, and in a New York theatre or. the opening night of a show. Birds fly in "V" formation so that each bird will be exposed to full force of prevailing winds, scientists believe. check* COLDS anil FEVER first daj LIQUID.

Japanese ships loaded with goods to be distributed in China docked at Shanghai and paid no duty to the Chinese government. What does that mean? Simply, that if Japan brings her own goods into China duty-free while other nations (including the United States) may he sqneezed out of the market. The second nows event was President Roosevelt's statement at a press conference and in a letter to the House appropriations committee thai the world situation was compelling hli i to give attention to the question of a bigger navy. The President emphasized that he had not committed himself to more vesels than already are ordered but that "if" the situation warranted it, he would send to Congress a supplementary request for more ships. Repeatedly he emphasized the "if." * * * The Big Stick Diplomats know that the nation which can lilt hardest gets the most attention. Roosevelt is aware of that. The other Roosevelt once said: "Speak softly, but carry a big stick." Of course the President did not speak out his navy plans simply because he heard of the Japanese merchant ships landing duty-free cargoes in Shanghai. Those ships represented concretely what has been evident all along. That is, thai the Japanese conquest may give Japan a lion's share of the oriental trade. Ex-Marine General Smedley Butler and many another are insisting that the oriental trade is not worth the price it may cost to save it. You can argue on either side of the question. * * * Faster Merchant Ships It might be interesting to know what the United States is doing now in a navy building way. Two 35,000-ton battleships at $00,000,00 apiece have been ordered. The navy has asked, and probably will be granted at once, two more. Altogether 11 have been authorized. In addition, since 1934, four ne- aircraft carriers have been built or started, 17 heavy cruisers have been built and one is building. Nine light cruisers have been started and two more have been authorized but not appropriated for. Thirty destroyers have been built or are building and money appropriated for two more. Congress has authorized 40 additional destroyers, without yet appropriating. Twenty submarines have been built, or are building, and there is congressional authority, without, appropriations as yet, for 19 more. But irnvy building is not the only way to strengthen the navy. The maritime commission lias called for bids for 12 fast new freighters and is dickering with oil companies with a view to putting 12 fast new oil tankers on the ocean. The tankers will be fast enough—Ihe navy is seeing to that —to keep up with the battle fleet, which needs oil. WINDOW IS BROKEN A New Year celeln-ator is believed by police lo have shot out a rear window in Ihe fourth floor apartment, of Robert, C. Parr, 31 East Washington street. Parr returned home on Sunday after an absenrs ot several days to find a pane of glass shattered in a kitchen window. Investigation by police led to the theory that the shot, came from the direction of Antietam street and was evidently Bred by some careless celebrator at midnight Friday night. Enrollment in U.

THANKS FOR VOTE WoiiHtchee, Wash., Jan. 3, (/P).— Albert Johnson, a former He- publican Congressman, received this letter from a voter who apparently didn't know he was defeated In the 1932 Democratic landslide: "1 have * » * voted for you, hut the way Congress has acted In the last year is disgusting, lo say the least. "The special session, I would say, is a disgrace to the country when you only passed one bill, and that for your salary. "Can't you fellows put out some worthwhile legislation? It you can't, yon had better stay home.' "Sometimes it's great to be out," said Johnson. THE SEEMINGLY Impossible Is often acoo nnlishoi] by Classified Alls.

This question, of interest to every smoker, is answered by the men who know tobacco from the ground up I F YOU want to know the quality of the tobaccos that go into various cigarettes, here is one certain source of information - the men who grow tobacco. They sell leaf to the buyer who bids most for it. They have seen Camel bid and pay higher prices necessary to get choice piles of leaf. And they report other planters who grow fine tobacco have had the same experience. That's why, as one grower puts it: "Most planters prefer Camels." Smoke Camels steadily, and you'll realize what finer, more expensive tobaccos mean in smoking. "CAMELS ARE MADE FROM more expensive tobaccos," says planter Beckham Wright. "I know the kind of leaf used for making various cigarettes. Only my best lots are bought for Camel." "THE CAMEL PEOPLE bought the best of my last crop," says T. N. Williams, tobacco planter. "They paid the highest price. More expensive tobacco goes into Camel cigarettes all right." "I'VE BEEN IN this county for SO years," says tobacco planter Ollie Hazelwood. "I'll tell you where the best tobacco goes. The choice lots of my crop are almost always bought by the Camel peo- ple.Every one on our placesmokes Camels too - just like me." "AN EXTRA GOOD CROP,"says Ray Sponcil, who has grown fine tobacco for many years, "and the Camel buyer bought all of my good leaf. I've seen the real fine lots go to the Camel people year after year. I smoke Camels he- cause I know the quality of the tobacco they use." MEET ALEY SKIDMORE, of Winchester, Kentucky. "I'm a tobacco planter," he says as he displays some of his choice leaf. "Those Camel buyers pay for the best - and get it. The choice lots of my last crop brought me a top price, and Camel took all of the fine leaf that I. had. I'm a steady Camel smoker myself. Camels are the favorite with men who grow tobacco." Mr. Skidmore and the other planters shov/n here bring direct evidence that Camels are indeed made from costlier tobaccos. Turn to Camels and see for yourself that those costlier tobaccos do make a real difference. Camel spends millions more for COSTLIER TOBACCOS. They are a. matchless blend of finer, MORE EXPENSIVE TOBACCOS —Turkish and Domestic. GoHIllht. IMS. 8.
