Very subtly we see what happens when u father and mother are so wrapt up in raising hops and making mince meat that they take their children's welfare for granted. "Stn'te Fair" is a simple story of thn humanities, expertly treated as such by the most up-to-date technique the screen possesses. It Is one of those pictures you will probably find around here und there as a. re, issue long after nine-tenths of It.s contemporaries have been reduced to their original silver and bromides In the chemist's reports.

JAMES CAQNEY, MARY BRIAN IN "HARD TO HANDLE" J AM123 CAQNEY'S performance of u promoter In "Hard to Handle," which opened yesterday at the Nllo, s a comedy riot from start to finish, lowever, the genial Jimmy, for the 'Irst time, has a serious contender for premier honors. Ruth Donnelly, who made such a hit In "Blessed Event," In a role rloh with laughs, steps forward literally, to steal tho show. In her portrayal of the promoting mother, anxious to get on Kasy .Street for her daughter's sake, and quite us much for her own. Miss Donnelly Is nothing leus than riotous. The story, concocted by Houston Branch, begins with one of those dizzy dunce marathons. It Jumps to New York and grabs fat reducing cream for some more laughs, then to Florida and squlrtless grape fruit, winding up with the 18-day diet gag. Including a funny burlesque of the recent Paul AVhltemun dieting. The furious pace of Mervyn T./eRoy'a direction never lets down for a single moment. The speed of th« dialogue might have satisfied some directors but ho Roy tulds tempo by the zli with which he moves his characters In and out of scene. Mary 'Brian contributes another o her charming heroines, and Clalri Dodd continues to display u superior brand of sex appeal. All the others In tho cast aro uniformly excellent. Would Have U. S. Collect AH Taxes Except Realty (United rrc*i W ASHINGTON, Foh. 6.—Collection by the federal government of all taxes except real estate levies was idyopnted here as a way out of tho tax jungle by Rn apparent majority of delegates from 32 states attending the American Lieglsla tors' Association conference.

' "Tho only sensible and sound way o carry out taxation and eliminate •onfllptlng, bewildering and duplicity of systems* Is to lot the federal government levy und i rolled tuxes," said •ieldon R, Glenn, lax commissioner of Kentucky. He believed the federal government should levy a five or six cent tax on Riisollno and glvo the states four or five cents. Similar taxes on tobacco, cigarettes and other sources of revenue were advocated. "Income taxes should not bo assessed by states, Glenn continued, 'slnco Imposition causes wealth to move out of the state." Professor Robert M. Kalg, Columbia University, said that the time was Leaned TT(rt) ripe for the limited Introduction of » ' system of taxes collected entirely by tho federal government. . ,. • He predicted that "the system "would play a very big part In a feasible solution to present taxation difficulties.^ :•• States reported almost, without exception that they were being pushed toward enactment, of now revenue measures duo to th« necessity of providing for unemployed and because ot declining revenue from oxlstlnfi sources. Delegates pondered also over the huge debts already amassed by many states. Now Yorlf hns a funded .debt exceeding $420,076,070. funded debts at. the close of thi fiscal year 1«31 amounted to $104,- 864.8D6 In Mlssou'rl, $156,856,920 In Arkansas, $118,216,000 In New Jersey, $133,583,676 In California and $106,836,320 In Illinois. *_^t Audible sound waves so high pitched that they are said to be "terrific squeaks" have been used successfully by two Texas scientists to kill bacteria.
