COLLEGE PLAY APPROVED BY A CAPACITY HOUSE "Mignonette" Is Well Presented to 800 at the Senior High REPEATED TONIGHT Reserved Seats, However, Given Away in First Hour Today The performance, of "Mignonette" last night In the high school auditorium climaxed the high standard set in the past by coUege plays coached by Mrs. A. E. Garrison. An audience of over 800 persons filled the auditorium. Ben Hanthome of Colony, in the dual role of Jonathan Mills as a young man of 18, and as an old man of nearly 90 was outstanding in the cast. Changing character quickly from the impetuous young lover to the bitter old man, he won the admiration and sympathy of his audience. Mary Mosher, as the lovely Mignonette, showed dramatic ability of a high order in her portrayal of the tragic heroine, and she carried the audience with her to the heights of her rapture and to the depths Of her sorrow. . Lola Belle Jewett looked charming and played capably her part as the adopted daughter of Jonathan Mills, and her lover, Justin Halliday, played by David Conderman Moran, was handsome ' and highly satisfactorj- in his role. Troutwine Does Well. Willard Troutwine, in the parti of David Frames, was dashing and gallant in his costume of 1861, and he handled his part with fine stage presence. LaVelle Wright, Savonburg, as the black "Mammy Lou." played her dual part yrell, dropping 70 years of her age to become a harum scarum youngster in the second act. Mildred Peck, Humboldt, looked attractive as the best friend of Mignonette, and her voice showed a very pleasing southern accent. El- \-ene Morris handled her roles effectively, and Virginia Lassman. Humboldt, Neva Voorhees. and Maude Mayfield - were charming young ladies. James Strong. Moran, Leo Robinson, and David Taylor, were able in their parts. It was in the second act that the play reached its highest point in atmosphere, suspense and emotional Fairbanks Jr., Denies Charges of Alienation Suit for $60,000 Brought by Los Angeles Engineer Charging Also False Imprisonment Bares Blackmail With Which Movie Actor Was Threatened Last December. Los Angeles, March 17. (AF)—A vigorous denial of thej charge of alienation of affections and false Imprisonment was made today by Djouglas Fairbanks Jr., screen actor, who yesterday was sued fo» $60,000 damages by' Jorgen Dletz, chemical engineer. Two actions were filed by Dietz. In the first he accuses the actor of stealing the love and affection, comfort and assistance of his Wife, Mrs. Solvelg Dietz. In his second suit, the engineer charges Fairbanks, Michael Levee, Pairbanks's manager, and others coerced and threatened him with Imprisonment to compel him to desist from making any claim against the film actor. Dietz charges that Levee, Pair- banks and others compelled him to go to the district attorney's otBce where he was restrained from his liberty, for two hours. Latier, he appeal. Against the beautiftil garden background, the players, attired, in the lovely costumes of the .per-. embarassed to be forced to receive UPTOWN MOVIE THEAtER OPENS Show Goes On In Spite Of Difficulties Imposed By Lack of Time lola's new theater, the Uptown, opened last night with two showings of "Hello Everybody," with Kate Smith—despite seemingly insurmountable difficulties. Last-minute rush" was a totally Inadequate phrase with which to describe the way things looked in the theater yestercfay before show time, according to the version of E. Van- Hj-ning, operator of the new movie. Paint wasn't dry. carpets weren't laid, the sound equipment wasn't tested—in fact, it seemed impossible for the opening to be held even as late as mid-aftemoon. But Mr. VanHyning hired extra men and directed them to "work like fiends" to get the show open, even donning work clothes himself in an effort to speed the preparations. Finally a snort test film was run through the projectors and as the crowd surged in the front door, the workmen scurried out th» back doors and -the show was on. Mr. VanHyning didn't even have time to change clothes, and he admitted today that he was somewhat alleges,- he was forced to go to a room at a downtown!hotel where he again was imprisoned for four hours. Filing of the suit brought to light an investigation involving Fairbanks, Dietz and a i screen actress. Lucy Doraine, conducted by District Attorney Huron Fitts last December. The investigation, Fitts said, was requested by Fairbanks Jr. .At that time Fitts said. Miss Doraine attempted to seU Young Fairbanks a necklace. Fitts said the investigation disclosed the pair bad threatened the Alienation suit against Fairbanks If he failed to buy the necklace. They said, Fitts declared, they wanted the money In order that they might marry. "I hate to appear a martyr but I am going to see the thing through," said Fairbanks, declaring that Pitts wanted to prosecute the pair last December! but that he (Fairbanks) had been prevailed upon by the pleas of Miss Doraine and Dietz not to pnjsecute. "I am not going to dodge the issue this time." said Fairbanks. "My wife, Joan Crawford, understands the whole thing and has known about it all along. At first we laughed and now we are mad—not between oiu^selves but at the whole situation." Dietz' suit alleges the alienation of affections of his wife took place over a period of a year, beginning in Petiruarj' 1931. Mrs. Dletz Is now reported to be in Copenhagen, Denmark, her home.

Many of the persons who nearly filled the theater at both performances last night were heard to comment on the high quality of the Some Irishmen In Notre Dame South Bend, Ihd.. Mar. 17. (AP) The "Fighting'Irish" of Notre Dame still are Irish—even though they may cheer from the sidelines while the Sheeketskis, the Schwartzes and the Carideos fight their football battles for them. So said officials of the local university today on the basis of a student surrey to determine just how many Irishmen were enrolled. Results, said the announcement, were -most gratifying—showing that 999 sons of Erin were roaming the campus today. And it was St. Patrick's day, too. "WhUe they flauted their shamrocks and bits of gTeen today their supremacy, however; was a one-day affair only. Extractions of other nationalities have; iiivaded this campus In increasing numbers. For instance, the survey showed 567 with German blood in their, veins.

(AP)—A decision that the presidential farm relief program constituted revenue raising threw congress into single file today, with the senate to follow the house In attacking the problem. An appeal for immediate action had been sent to the senate and house agriculture conmiittees by a number of farm organizations. The senate committee decided the revenue features of the blU requhred that it originate in the house and withheld any action untU the "bill Is passed there. The fanri organizations' statement concluded with the assertion that "delay will be fatal." It was signed by a number of groups. Including the American Farm Bureau federation, the National Grange, Farmers Educational and Cooperative union. Farmers National Grain corporation, American Cotton Cooperative association, National Livestock Marketing association, and national committee of farm organizations. In the house, plans were proceeding for early action on the bill. The agriculture committee arranged to hear from administration advisers an explanation of, the bill. Secretary Wiallace, after a morning appearance before the senate committee, was ready to appear before the house committee In the afternoon. Reaction Slow. At the White House it was said that reaction to the president's message of yesterday and to the bill was slow in coming, and that no protests had been received. Members of congress were beginning to hear from constituents on both sides of the question. President Roosevelt's bold pre- .scription for the nation's agricultural ills was bound today up a rougher road than any of the three previous proposals for emergency action routed to congress In the last eight days. The others, now that beer is about through, appear to have been triple plays, 'White House to congress to the law books. The farm program faces troubles midway along that path, in the senate where there were signs of a rebellion in Democratic ranks. Friends of the administration program, although confident of its ultimate passage by the senate, admitted that progress there will probably l3e slower than that .recorded by the Roosevelt proposals for banks, economy and beer. There was a scattered undercurrent of hostility toward- the measure. Senators Russell of Georgia and Long of Louisiana indicated disUke for the speed with which the senate is acthig; others said they proposed a halt in "rubber-stamping procedure." Meanwhile, representatives of processors hurriedly analyzed the long and complicated bill, some of them definitely committed to battling Its enactment. Others were stilled by the president's plea in his special message to congress yesterday for "a fair trial" of the measiu^. Costly to Evade License. Some processors were particularly WEARERS OF THE GREEN HAVE THEIR DAY. New York, March 17. (AP)— If St. Patrick, who spread the compel in the Emerald Isle, could stand at Fifth Avenue and Fiftieth street this afternoon, he would see a sight to warm his heart—green waves of stalwart paels, billowing endlessly up the avenue In his honor. Twenty-five thousand- marchers was a conservative ^estimate made several hours before parade time. Marching orders called for the 165th (Fighting Irish) regiment to lead, as always.

CON MAN HELD FOR COLORADO County Attorney Warns Against Magazine Subscription Racket Using thh case of a man giving his name as P. H. Slipsager as an example, County Attorney Frank Taylor Issued a warning to citizens of the county against one of the simplest of confidence games—the magazine subscription racket. Slipsager, also known under aliases of Patterson. Peterson, and Brown, is held in lola imtll authorities from Pueblo, Colo., arrive; today or tomorrow to return him to that city to face.charges there. He was arrested by police Wednesday upon complaint of an lolan w-ho became suspicious of Slipsager after the latter had sold him a five-year sub^ scription to a weekly journal for $.1.25, much less than the regular price. The county attorney said today that Slipsager had been operating in Kansas, Nebraska. Oklahoma, Colorado, and other states, offering subscriptions to papers, and magazines at cut rates, taking the money, and leaving the prospective subscriber with nothing more than a dent in his bank roll. As a rule! Taylor said, the man would not e%'en give his customer a receipt, although he made a practice of fill-, ing out a receipt which he kept himself. ! These receipts were in a book issued for that purpose by a well known publisher of magazines. Sllpr sa^er, however, when the book be-, came full, would start erasing and use it over agam. Most of the time also, the county attorney said, he would sell a subscription to one publication and make put the receipt on the form furnished by the publisher of an entirely different periodical. "It takes no brains or cimning to work this game," Taylor said. "The man merely obtains the confidence of his victim, then his money, and then; departs. "There is one simple rule which the people can follow to protect themselves from this form of swindling. All they have .to do is to buy their subscriptions frotn recognized dealers, preferably local business ^ men whom they know.

The Kansas City chamber of commerce announced today that its poll of individual farmers in every county of six agricultural states showed decided sentiment against the domestic allotment plan or pose tlie team. Mr. Wilson is well known to many audiences in southeastern Kansas through his evangelistic'work. His son is a senior in the Fredbnia high school, a member of the debate team which won the championship of the district, and was captain of th^ 1932 football team. He began his ministry last summer and: has preached in all of the chiu-ches In Wilson coimty and In several others in the area. . Together, the father and son held what was said to be the largest meeting i of the state In 1932. It was held in Erie and 91 persons were confirmed or converted. The first meeting will be held Sunday night and others w-ill continue for a period of three weeks. government attempts to control prices or production, but overwhelming demand for federal aid in refinancing mortgages. | Tlie survey also disclosed a heavy vote against continuing the present agricultural marketing act and the activities of the federal farm board.

This would permit assessment of SIOOO a day fines agalnst.those who operated without licenses. Wallace, however, indicated he did not intend to use this tmless processors failed to cooperate willingly. Based on recommendations of farm organization leaders and editors, the program would place In the hands of Secretary Wallace sweeping powers to deal with the problems of low prices and surplus production. The program has flexibility, empowering. Wallace to employ parts or all of several plans, including the Smith cotton method, the principles:of the domestic allotment bill, leasing of lands to retire them from production and trade agreements. Through the cooperative agreements between producers and processors, Wallace is hopeful of accomplishing the purpose of the program. He has conferred with representatives of millers: packers, cotton spinners and others and expressed himself as confident of winning their support. A processors' tax is the chief source of revenue proposed to provide funds to finance the program. From it payments in the form of rentals or benefits or both could be paid to farmers in return for agreements to curtail production. Restoration of farm prices to the 1909-1914 pre-war level is the goal. If and when that goal was attained the plan would go out of operation^ The processors tax if levied In the maximum amount ^ would be in an amoimt equal to the difference between the pre-war level and current market prices. men. they should demand adequate proof of his Identity and his authority to represent the firm which he claims he-does."

New York, March 17. (AP)— stocks and grains lumo,; reactionary today, though, United States government bonds maintained an upward trend and the American dollar was strong in the foreign exchange markets. Shares rallied partially after an. early profit taking but slipped off again w-hen wheat and com weakened. Trading in stocks was quiet, however, volume being little more than half yesterday^ turnover. Brokers viewed the reaction as a normal aftermath of the Wednesday and Thursday advance. Net losses for some shares approximated $1, to more than $3. Ralls showed temporary resistance, but later gave way ; moderately. Closing prices were generally the day's lows. Cotton dipped niore than $1 a bale. Its decline as -R -ell as that of grains, was partly attributed to un- certahity over farm relief legislation.
