At Your Theaters-Brasselle's Eyes Spell Cantor Tale Those big brown eyes which helped bring everlasting fame to Eddie Cantor serve the same purpose for Keefe Brasselle, who is playing Eddie in "The Eddie Cantor Story" at the Palace Theater. Because his orb routine is so like Cantor's he has been labeled "The Eyes." This is not the first t i m e an anatomical designation has been hung on a celebrity, however. Frank Sinatra got "The Voice" tag, followed by Lauren Bacall as "The Look." Azi attractive young woman named Marie McDonald was labeled '-The Body/' and An- Migs and Sabre Jets as they battle thousands of feet above battle- scarred Korea, are shown in ''Sabre Jet/' now at the Strand Theater. There are no studio rehearsed thrills in these sequences, as even (he audience can verify. The' scenes were shot by color cameras located in the wings of the combat jets. Co-featured is "Ghosts on Hie Loose," with the East Side Kids, Leo Gorcey, Hunlz! Hall, Ava Gardner ami Bela Lugosi. Humphrey Bogart and Kathryn Hepburn are co-starred in "The African Queen," at the Band Box Theater. It is a story of an African adventure during World War I and is filmed in technicolor. "Toughest Man in Arizona" is 'co-featured, with Vaughn Monhoe and Joan Leslie in starring roles.

State Fair to Mark Century of Existence DES MOINES (UP) -- Iowa's 100th state fair, to be held here Au£. 28-Sept. G, will be tiie "largest and most elaborate" in its history, L. B. Cunningham, fair secretary said Thursday. The fair will have a centennial theme, in commemoration of the first state fair in Iowa in Fail-field. Oct. 25-27, 1854, and will feature pioneer exhibits, Cunningham said. Cunningham said the fair will "greatly expand" lertainment and its regular en- education fea- ila Colby drew attention as "The Face." And a long, long time ago probably tiie first such nickname was tacked on Jimmy Durante, generally known as "The Schnoz.' Brasselle's eyes perform amazing ocular gymnastics, the crowning feature in the actor's impersonation of Cantor. The physical resemblance was adjusted by makeup 'and Cantor's mannerisms were learned by Brasselle, but the big, brown eyes are his own. "Knights of the Round Table," CinemaScope production in color starring Robert Taylor, Ava Gardner and Mel Ferrer in a cast of thousands, is showing at the Cecil · Theater. Unfolded against breathtaking panoramic b a c k- grounds of England's Gth Century castles; jousts and tournaments, with its tremendous battle scenes given a thunderous and eye-filling validity, the film permits the spectator a pictorial range never before possible. It's the story of King Arthur and the gallant knights who joined him in fighting to free England from its feudal chieftains. Breath - taking duels between Case Appealed to High Court CHARLES CITY--A record of an appeal to the lo\va Supreme Court by the defendants in a suit brought by t h e Central States Theater Corp. was filed in district court! here Thursday. j The defendants, Robert Sar, Forrest Klages and Raymond Fluhrer, trustees of St. Charles Township; J.
