Of Boston Played By Veteran Of Stage And Screen Jonathan Hole Jonathan Hole, while a senior in an Iowa high school, was selected to play the puckish role of Penrod in Booth Tarkington's perennial favorite of the same name. Once, during rehearsals, he became involved in a backstage riot with a youngster playing the role of Sara and at the end of the first round Jonathan's victory was purely moral. He suffeerd. a broken nose, a sprained wrist, and was with drawn from the cast. Inwardly he smouldered for the remainder of the school year and, on graduation, more determined than ever to make his mark as an actor, he ran away from home to join a circus.

While playing an engagement in Dayton, Ohio, he met an actress in the same company named Betty Hanna, who later became his wife. Four years after their marriage they were assigned the leading man-and-wife roles in "Three Men On a Horse," which was booked for Australia.

Well-Dressed Child Finds Champion LINCOLN, Neb. (UP) Children's ready-made garments need to be improved, but the situation is stalemated because of a lack of understanding between American mothers and clothing manufacturers. That is the opinion of Helen A. Rocke, University of Nebraska assistant extension home economist. If the manufacturers started making better clothes for the children, she said, the mothers would pay more for them, a fair enough compromise. Mothers want clothing that wears and washes well, and that Johnny and Jane can put on and take off by themselves. It should be comfortable and have plenty of room for action. But such clothing is not to be had, Miss Rocke reports. Sports and work clothing for adults have been improved in recent years, but the basic design for children's clothes has hard ly changed in a quarter century. Miss Rocke said. She believes it all can be blamed on a misunderstanding. Manufacturers think mothers are satisfied because they continue to buy.
