3PAGE TEN THE PAMPA DAILY NEWS, P&mpa, Texas SUNDAY MORNING, JANUARY 27, 1935 Rogers Here in Latest Picture 'COUNTY CHAIRMAN" TAKEN FROM PLAY OF SAME NAME Described in advance accounts from Hollywood as the finest to date cf Will Rogers' notable series of American character portraits, the Fcx Film production. "The County Chairman." will be seen here at the j La Nora theater beginning today. "The County Chairman" is a screen adaptation of the famous play of the same title, by one of America's foremost humorist. Geo. year 1902, "The County Chairman" ran there for a year with Maclyn Arbuckl? as its star and then toured for the next Ihrce seasons. In addition to the celebrity which it brought to Arbuckle, the play created another star of the era—Willis P. Sweat-man, who appeared in the famous role of "Sassafras," colored rmm-of-all-work. In the screen plav. Stepin Fetchit is seen in this notable part. "The County Chairman," it is said, is a story of smiles and heart lugs, rivalling the hugely successful "Judge Pricsl" and "David Harum" as a vehicle for Rogers. In the new film he is seen as a wily, lovable county boss, half-diplomat, half-rustic. Te wins elections and arranges love matches with equal skiH—and no one, not even his rivals can resist him. John Blystone has directed the picture, with Edward W. Butcher listed as producer, and the adaptation from George Ade's play has been made by Sam Hellman and Gladys Lehman. A nolable supporting cast includes such players as Evelyn Venable. Kent Taylor, Louise Dresser, Berton Churchill, Mickey Rooney Frank Melon and Stepin Fetchit. Once again, it is stated, Will Po-qers displays his recently developed flair for singing in this picture. You will recall his musica" propensities in "Judge Priest." Tills time he renders an old-time westerr ranger's song, accompanying himself on the guitar. Another highlight of "The County .Chairman' is 0113 of those famous torchligh processions so much in vogue a the turn of the century. This one is staged by Will and is said to have all the frenzy and thrill of it: originals. You mustn't miss Will Rogers the inimitable, in "The Count} Chaiiman." You'll love him mor than ever—and no one can say movi than that! ((iii/xicnlly. t-ver the romame ol Kent Taylcr and Vrnablr in "The County Chairman."

RACE It was only a short pull—forty yards at the utmost—but with the spray splashing over us at every stroke we were all four drenched to the skin by the time we got on board. George, who was waiting for us on deck, heralded our approach by a: chorus of staccato barks, his enthusiasm culminating in a frantic attempt to lick each of our faces in turn as we climbed up over the fide. ""What about a hot drink and a mouthful of biscuit straight away?" suggester Jerry. "I could do with it for one and Heaven knows when we shall get another chance." "I'll put the Primus on." Jimmy wriggled out of his dripping mackintosh. "You'd better 'ave this back now, sir. You'll be wanting it if we're going cut amongst that lot.' He disappeared briskly through the cabin door, and after a meditative glance seaward Jerry turned to us. "Of course," he observed. ' miracles do happen occasionally, but somehow or other I don't altlio- getlier like the look of this one.

'"We're in for inelhingt—hat's ip with us " He was gone again in a flash, an or two minutes of feverish activilj the world seemed to consist of soak ed canvas and recalcitrant knots. I was dimly conscious of th crash of the anchor, and the wiV lutlcring of a rebellious jib; Ihcr tiller in hand, I found mysel crouching forward on the wet coun ter, while foot by foot Jerry liatile up the struggling mainsail, "That's all right. Let her come Round she swung, heeling over to! our Ice gunwale, and taking in a rush of water that surged furiously up the deck. With only one arm at my disposal, it was as much as I could do to battle against the force of the gale. Something like a red-hot gimlet seemed to be boring vigorously into my damaged shoulder, and every wave that slapped against our bows sent a shower of stinging spray into my eyes. Through it all the menacing throb behind us grew clearer and clearer. "I can see them now, Nick. They're just coming round the bend." Molly's voice was as steady as usual, and glancing back up the wind-swept creek, I had a momentary glimpse of our pursuing enemy. She was a powerful looking cutter, half as large again as ourselves, and in addition to her engine, she was forging along under every strip of canvas that she was capable of carrying. "Thanks, old man, I'll take her on now. You get down into the well Molly." Jerry, who had already possessed himself of the tiller, Slipped deftly into my place, and edging out of his I fished out the revolver which I ad stuffed away into my side pock- t "They'll have to hurry," I mut- ;red. "if they don't catch us before •e reach thfi bar . . ." "That's what I'm counting on," erry laughed grimly. "They must raw at least a couple of feet more lan we do. and with any luck lew's an almighty smash coining or somebody.'' He eased off the niainsheet, and ilh the wind dead behind us, Ihe eagull heaved and smashed her r ay joyously through the on-rush- ig tide. "Better lie down, Nick," e added, "it would spoil all the fun : you got a bullet through your ead." His advice struck me as sound, nd stretching myself out flat I ooked back over the foaming wake vhlch spread out in a broad fan stern. With the help of her engine the pursuing cutler was over- lauling us rapidly. In the bright light of the moon vlilch now shone down through a jap in the cloud bank, I could see icr crew of four as plainly as though t were daytime. One of them, a huge bareheaded fellow, who wa's steering, I recognized at once. It was my old acquaintance, the big Russian sailor. With his bcastial features and cnoromous breadth of shoulder lie looked for all the world like some monstrous ape. but it was on the man who was crouching motionless beride him that my eyes instinctively riveted themselves. A cold blast of hatred went thru my heart as I stared at lhat still sinister figure. He sat there, bent slightly forward, his face a white mask in the moonlight.' Except for Ihe slight swaying of his body as the ship rose and fell, lie never stirred or varied his position. Not more than a hundred yards now separated us, and every moment the roar of the sea as it pounded against the bar became louder and more strident. Twisting myself around, I took a glance forward over the plunging bobstay. Directly ahead of us the line of breakers that stretched from ihore to shore was broken by a nav- •ow strip of dark, swirling water. On each side of this, pver the crest of the ridge a white maelstrom boiled and bubbled, while here and here patches of black sand still showed amongst the frothing tur- iioil.

In 192!). the commission reported. 16 holding company groups had an ownership interest in about D2 per rmt of the nation's electrical output.
