WEEKLY RH3GELY NEWS LETTER Items of Special Interest to Residents of the Seventh District. The Senior Class of Ridgely High School presented "It Hapcned in Hollywood," at the Community Theatre, on Tuesday evening, March 16. Music for the evening was furnished by Caroline High School Orchestra, under the direction of Professor Irvin Smith, and assisted by Mr. Robert Fleetwood. The scene of the piny was the Pembroke House in Hollywood. Jack Wilson played the part of the Pembroke butler, who, during the absence of the family, decides to make some money for himself by letting the house for a month. The house is taken by Alan Tremaync (Russell Holsinger), who is trying to break into the movies, and his press agent (William RairiRh), who drops hints that his employer is the prince whom the newspapers have announced as visiting Hollywood unknown. The story is swallowed, "Hook, line and sinker," by the butler, and later by a newspaper reporter (Mary Wharton), and then by the movie people, among whom the supposed prince gets a place, and makes good. A movie star (Marguerite VanSant) is ambitious to marry him. At the Pembroke House, Josic Pembroke- (Leola Temple) unexpectedly returns, accompanied by her school friend, the Princess Dolores (Mary Frieze RinggnlJ). They take positions in the house as cook and housemaid. The real prince (David Mitchell) appears and takes employment as a chauffeur. He is recognized by the princess. The mistress of the house (Louise Smith) returns, to the extreme discomfort of the butler. The guardian of the prince (Harold Holsinger) also arrives. All disguises are discarded. The prince wins the princess, and Alan Tremayne wins Josie. The would-be princess is disappointed, and everyone else is pleased. Other characters are Joseph Cherry as messenger boy, and Madeline Snowberger as a comedy actress. The pulpit of the Reformed Church is to be filled on Palm Sunday by Dr. James M.

They have solved a traffic problem. We might qualify this statement by saying that they have solved one phase or that great problem, but it is that pliase that interests them and the shoppers who do business with them. When a shopper visits that progressive city, it is unnecessary for him to search the streets for a place to park the car, or to take any chance on being "tagged." In various places, in the shopping district of the city the merchants have made arrangements for garages to take care of shoppers' cars, free of charge, and to safeguard them during the visitors' stay. The garageman is paid for his services, of course, but the merchant takes care of the charge. The shopper leaves the car at the garage, where he receives a claim check. At most any store where a purchase is mfule, the clerk or floor-walker will endorse the claim check by writing his firm's name across the back of it. The endorsed check is given to the garage and the car is released to the shopper without cost to him. Almost every garage in the central shopping district is cooperating with the Mercantile Section of the Chamber of Commerce in providing this service. If in doubt the visitor should ask the keeper of the garage if the service is provided. A check, however shows the following locations where the service is rendered: Bell, Inc., 1219 Market Street; Julian Garage, 614 French Street; Quick Service Garage, 6 E. Third Street; Orange Street Garage, 111 Orange Street; Donoho's Garage, ·109 Orange Street; Victor Garage, 517 Shipley Street.

Hal Skelly, who will be seen in "The Struggle" Wednesday and Thursday, once was a clown with the Barnum and Bailey circus. A part of his act was a somersault from a spring-board over four elephants lined up side by side. At one performance the fourth elephant threw his trunk up while Skelly was in mid-air, sending him flying across the arena, painfully injuring him. It was the last of circus acrobatics for Skelly, who has the male lead in D. W. Griffith's latest picture. Marion Davies donned black silk tights and spangles for her role in "Polly of the Circus," in which she is starred by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.

In Memoriam In loving memory of Thelnrn Virjinia Baker, who departed this life one year ago, March 14, 1931. Gone is the face we loved so dear, Silent is the voice we loved to hear; Too far away for sight or speech, Jut not too far for thought to reach. Sweet to remember her who once was here, And who, though absent, is just as dear. What would we give to clasp her hand Her happy face to see, To hear her voice and see her smile That meaire so much to all. By Mother, Daddy and Brother She left a memory fair and sweet, Her fragrance can never die, Leaving her life, not yet complete When God called her on high. Her loving grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. T. R.

A Tribute Oxford, Md., February 25, 1932 To the Children of John H. Trice: I was shocked today to read in the Baltimore Sun of the death of your "ather and it certainly is a blow and Hr. Myers and I extend our heartfelt sympathy to his children. We had him do some moving for us nearly two years ago and we grew very fond of him in that short time as he impressed us as an honest, straightforward, dependable man of character, always ready and wiling to lend a helping hand to one in need, as he was doing in this case that cost him his life. I can imagine I see his little smile and the twinkle in his bright eyes now is it used to appear when he was telling something of interest. I should like to attend his funeral if I can but Saturday afternoon is hard for me to leave. I can imagine what his loss will mean to his family and in fact to the whole community at large. I am Again extending sympathy Very sincerely yours, 0. S. Gallup. In Memoriam In loving remembrance of Rachel V. Clark, wife of Harry Clark, who died March 16th, 1931.- have loved long since, awhile." -Whom we and lost Husband, Son and Daughter. E w
