Her accessories are wine-colored and her felt vagabond hat hints of the new vogue for wider brims Note the clever use of tucks at the shoulder and the iust-below- elbow length sleeves. Jane is featured in Warner Bros, forthcoming production "The Kid From Kokomo." turning Milwaukee Is Subject of Speaker Richard Sullivan, 16 Years Old, Tells of His.Home Town Wa-Tan-Ye club had as guest ipeaker Tuesday Richard Suili- ·an, 16 year old from Milwaukee, iVis., who is a nephew of Ruby Potter, a club member. Up until he ,vas 8 years old he lived in Mason City. He is now a junior in high school at Milwaukee and has ;ained quite a name for himself with his public speaking. The youth gave his first speech while in the sixth grade at school, delivering a Mother's day address at that time and this spring he Darticipated in the national oratorical contest at Madison. He speaks naturally and effectively at an age when most boys are self-conscious and tongue-tied. Police System He chose the city of Milwaukee for his thenje for the Wa-Tan-Ye linner, more particularly the police and school systems of that city. Milwaukee has one of the outstandingly efficient.police systems in-the United States, as witness the fact that very recently a murderer was sentenced to life mprisonment within three days of having committed his crime. Their record for crime prevention and crime detection is remarkable when it is known that Milwaukee has a small ratio of policemen per capita as compared with other cities of her size. Mr. Sullivan also spoke of the work done through their house o£ correction which aims toward the reclamation of the offender into a useful citizen. Dry Nfeht Clubs The outstanding feature of the school system in Milwaukee as outlined was the fact that student government is used entirely and with gratifying success. The busi- nessmen of the city are aiding in giving the boys and girls of Milwaukee some place to go, other than the 2,000 taverns that dot the town, by the building of the "Milk Jugs," amusement centers that are strictly temperate anc where everything used is produced on the grounds, as the butter, ice cream, etc. The outstanding effort along this line is the Club Sierra, when they have floor shows, do broad casts and have all the trimming of the night clubs, but which i as "dry as its name" in the word- of Richard Sullivan. On Fridaj nights, the various high school take turns putting on the floo show and they also broadcast. Trade schools are provided for those adept with their hands an all boys and girls must graduaU from high schools unless thej have a permit from the juveru'i or health authorities exempting them.
