Phone 324 % MILWAUKEE ROAD If uny doubts havn existed as to whether Winnie Lightner and Joe E. Brown are two of the funniest people in the talkies, it is dispelled by "Sit Tight," tho Warner Brothers' and Vitaphone production whicn opened at the Palace theater Saturday. Winnie appears as hard-boiled Dr. O'Neil, owner of a helath institute where the patients, male and female, are pounded, stretched, steamed, psycho-analyzed, and otherwise maltreated, effort to become the Venuses and Adonises that nature evidently didn't intend them to be. Dr. O'Neil is also interested in the fight game, and hopes to discover and develop champion material in the course of her work. Joe E. Brown is her doubtful assistant who calls himelf Jojo the Tiger, and brags without end of the pugs he has knocked out and the medals he has won. Jojo has an eye for feminine charms, and causes screaming roiighhouse among the lady patients. Winnie is compelled to resort to her most hard-swatting tactics to keep him in proper submission. In answer to thosn who claim that no attention is paid to th£ realistic presentation of stories by motion picture companies, First National appears with a screen version of a. recent Literary Guild selection "Little Caesar," which opened Saturday at the Strand theater, was adapted to the screen from tne novel of W. R. Burnett. In this story of underworld life Mr. Burnett has chosen to present his material from the "inside" viewpoint. He tells hi? story as one who knows; one who is intimate with his locale and characters. Burnett made an intensive study of life in gangland during the time he was working on the story, and as a result the characters are particularly well-drawn, and the atmosphere smacks of grim reality In his search for authentic gangatcc material, Burnett met and fraternized with some of the most important figures in the racketeering world. Many who have seen "Little Caesar" claim to recognize well- known gangsters in the characters. 150 Florists at meeting AMES, Feb. 28.--The increasing interest in beautification of rural and city homes, both inside and out, the demands on the extension service for this type of demonstration and other similar developments point to n. bright future for commercial florists, R.
