POLITICIAN ROLE NEW TO SCREEN MAN OF ACTION From a Zane Grey hero of the Painted Desert regions to a big-city, cigar-chewing politician is the range of characterization achieved by Jack Holt, screendom's man of action, i some 20 years of trouping befor cameras, During the silent err Holt's fame seemed everlasting mainly due to his numerous inter pretations of the Zane Grey char acters. In "I'll Fit It,' 1 the ne\ cornedy-rama at the Rex theater which is Holt's latest picture, tlw famed star dons the toga of a po itical go-between—hardly a Zan 3rey hero. Holt's real life, is is interesting tc note, has ben every bit as diversifiei ind adventurous as his screen ca reer. He was born in Winchestei Va.. in the nineties, son of an Epis ccpalian minister. He was educatec at Virginia Military Institue, whence went to Trinty Prep School in New York to study engineering. Holt's first engineering job wa; unning levels in the Pennsylvanii Railroad's Hudson river tunnels, bu his under-pressure work forced hirr above ground. He soon left the cit: 'or the wide spaces of Alaska wltl an engineering friend who hac 'ormed a company to locate anc mine for copper and gold. He spen several years in the Far North ai jrospector, mail carrier, governmen road surveyor, and "long line skin' ler" or mule driver. With a buddy le drifted to Oregon, left him on a •anch after a spell as cowboy, anc lit San Francisco just when the mo- ion pictures were starting theh imall but rapid climb to success. Chance acquaintanceship in a ho,el got Holt his first movie role eaping a horse off a cliff into 'iver, which netted him $25 and two >roken ribs. But that dare-devi >tunt as an expert horseman startec his long and popular career. CAMP FIRE Continued from Page 1, Section Holt Shows His Versatility Camp Fire institutes will be conducted by Mr. Kempthrone, national field director from New York at Wichita Falls on Jan. 25 and 26 and at Oklahoma City on Feb. 1 md 2, it was announced. Members lere discussed sending a represen- ;ative with Mrs. Bo Barrett, guard- an, who will attend the Oklahoma City meeting. Each year Camp Fire Girls the world over choose a birthday proj.- ect or annual program subject. Na- ional honors are awarded to groups and individuals who fulfil require- nents. The 1935 subject is "My Place in the World." The 1933 sub- ect was "Know Myself," and in 1934 it was "Hobbys." President Roosevelt's new year ;reeting to the organization stressed this subject. His message, datec "rorn the White House, follows: "I understand that you have chosen as your 1934 birthday project, 'My Place in the World,' anc 'hat you are concerned with both ;our privileges and responsibilities ab home, in school, in your town md in the nation. I think of no ubject more important to us all. "What, each of us is and does is Df vital concern to all of us, since all of us together make up the citi- ;enry of our country. We cannot ict wisely nor well as a nation un- ess each of us makes the effort to be informed. I congratulate you m the steps you are taking, in this ireetion. May the coming year be ull of interest and happiness for •ou. (Signed) Franklin D. Roose- elt." The program has two sides: What s done for me? and what can I lo? Like all other birthday projects, ; was chosen because so many girls re already interested in the sub- ects. Pampa Camp Fire Girls will start •1th a "Know your town" project, hey will make maps, photographs, ollections, get news clippings and ictures with information concern- ig civic and social organizations ere. They will hike to interesting laces in town, and late in the year make an exhibit of scrapbooks nd collections. They were interested to learn that a Texas group, the girls of Dallas, won first prize at the national hobby show in New York that climaxed the 1934 project. A huge relief map of Texas was the winning 1 exhibit. The group will meet at the Legion hut Thursday at 4:15, to plan for a hike Friday.

Watching relief funds dwlindlng away, democratic leaders in the house considered today the advisability of rushing $880,000,000 to President Roosevelt by Invoking a drastic ride. Often called a "gag rule" by its opponents, this regulation would limit debate sharply and forbid amendments. No decision as to whether it would be invoked had been reached, but one leader disclosed it was being considered. The major reasons which he said figured in the problem were two: First, President Roosevelt's desire to have the measure enacted before Febraury 10, when existing relief funds run out; second, the predictions of leaders that there will be no difficulty in obtaining the two-thirds majority necessary to pass the measure under the proposed procedure. The $880,000,000 is to tide relief activities over the transition period from the dole to the $4,000,000,000 program to provide employment for 3,500,000 persons on relief. In a White House conference yesterday, the administration leadership moved to block an incipient revolt against the president's plan to have the $4,000,000,000 appropriated in a lump sum without being earmarked for specific projects. •» Forty-nine regular passenger trains leave Atlanta, Ga., daily, running in many directions. \* v 5 and 10 Acre Tracts Close in L.
