The management of the theater gave a preview of the play for the Band mothers on Thursday and all were loud in their praise of the play. To all music lovers the announcement that this play stars Jasche Hcifetz and his violin, is assurance enough of the joy in store for them. The world at large would never be able to have seats at a Heifetz concert, so this movie gives the opportunity at a moderate price. Heifetz plays his violin throughout the play as much as any of his admirers could wish. The story concerns "self with room of the school.

The old ratio—daytime traffic double the night traffic—is due for a rapid change, as a result of the great improvement in night seeing. Letters from enthusiastic owners of 1940 models, contain phrases like these: "I feel so much safer driving at night behind Scaled Beam lamps, because I see so much better"—"My daily business trips are now being extended into the night hours, so I'm covering more towns and getting more business"—"Like many women drivers, I've hesitated to drive long or far at night, but not since we got our new car." Older Headlights Can Be Improved The effect of the Better Night Seeing provided by Sealed Beam lamps on all owners who drive cars with the prior-type lights, is becoming evident in the increased work being done by garages and service stations to improve the efficiency of lighting systems on thousands of these cars. Their owners have suddenly realized how defi- Mrs. and cient their lights were, when they , eV p m nchle saw for themselves how much bet- ., | FOUNTAIN.—Mr. and Fred Hansen were host hostess'to a group of a Hallowe'en party Wednesday was a feature of evening, four tables being ter really good car lighting can be layed Joe Wichtoski won high as demonstrated on 940 models. £ rf £ fm m u d Van Registrations show that average g icR1 second ; Mrs. Joe Wich- rtmv cars today arc three years old or toski hi h for , adi Mrs E1 _ diov older.
