IB, 198S. x ONfe Of ROGERS' LAST PICTURES COMES TO PAMPA Out of romantic pages t>r American- history. Fox Film plucked one of the most exciting mid colorful phases of Mississippi river life to furnish a thrilling climax for Will Rogers' new picture, "Steamboat Round the Corner," now at La Nora theater. Once a year the fastest packets of the Mississippi and Ohio rivers would line up amid a great celebration and stage a steamboat race from Natchez; to New Orleans, the gala event of the year. Crowds would line the shores, river crafts would drift tip'and down stream cheering their favorites and all work was forgotten in the excitement and anticipation of R thrilling race. In the film, as in the- old days, ROgers and Irvin S. Cobb, rival steamboat pilots, employ every possible means of winning the race. Old furniture, wax statues, firewater medicine and most anything that would bum are used as fuel to turn the tide of victory. The bitter rivalry of Rogers and Cobb, masters of "The Claremore Queen" and "The Pride of Paducah " reaches a thrilling climax when • their packets fight it out for the supremacy of the Mississippi. The race, however, is merely a highlight to the dramatic climax, ,, since Rogers' sole purpose in cnter- / Ing the. race is to save the life of a boy, who through a misunderstanding is held by the law for murder. In support of Rogers 'and Cobb, the large cast of players Includes Anne Shirley, Eugene Pallettc, John McGuire, Burton Stepln Fetchlt.

Slip's "the little colonel" of four states! Idaho's governor, and the most Important American Legion post in the United Stales, independently conferred on the 5-year old star this signal honor. Kentucky and New Jersey followed suit. Thus Shirley, whose metcorin rise to screen fame within six months, forms one of the most amazing chapters In the book of entertainment history, becomes the world's youngest military officer. It is the reward for her superbly natural gifts, her wonderful personality, the dash and sparkle that make her the envy of seasoned troupers, and the idol of young and old. First to honor the marvelous Shirley was Gov. C. Ben Ross of Idaho. After seeing this 5 year-old bundle of curls and personality in four Pox attractions, he lost his heart to her, and Instantly made her his aide-de-camp. The necessary papers were drawn, and the commission sent to Shirley. Soon after, the American Legion, post 45, Hollywood, Calif.,, made Shirley an honorary colonel with appropriate ceremonies. Little Shirley marched into the auditorium of the post's clubhouse. Preceding her was the post's championship band, nnd on either side, the officers who were to conduct the ceremonies. Shirley, in the presence of an audience of 1,000 Legionnaires, received the commission that permits her to wear the shoulder straps with the outspread eagle. On receiving her commission, Shirley was presented by Post Commander Louis Sanepe with the overseas cap emblematic of the Legion membership and with a medal. This event, which took place in the presence of the proud parents, Mr. and Mrs. George F. Temple, occurred, strangely enough, precisely at the time that Shirley was engaged in making a picture called "The Little Colonel." Sewing Club Is One Active Group Of Week SKELLYTOWN. Sept.
