This group consisting of quartets, soloists, and chorus, have been singing regularly over radio stations in Delaware and Pennsylvania. They will appear only once each night at 9 o'clock. The romance of a hardened "come on" girl with an ambitious, young police detective is related with considerable dramatic effect in "The Beast of the City," which opens next Friday at the Federal Theatre for two days. Here is a fresh angle on the "never the twain shall meet" theme, for the extremes of the gangster world and the world of law and order are brought into conflict, the ensuing complications making for a plot which keeps its audience on the alert every minute. The picture is given added vividness and power by a background which discloses the machinations of politicians who work hand in hand with the gangster element, making the problem of law enforcement a doubly difficult one.

Alderson, formerly of Preston, was admitted to probate in the Orphans' Court of Baltimore on March thirtieth and the estate was closed the following day. This estate had been in litigation for more than a year, Mr. Alderson's daughters having instituted caveat proceedings immediately after his death on December 4th, 1930, in Baltimore. The case came to trial in the city court on December 4th, 1931, and the jury sustained the will. A motion for a new trial was filed by the plaintiffs and upon argument by counsel before Judge Dawkins was lost. An appeal was then filed, but was dismissed later. Mrs. Alderson, who was the executrix and hence the defendant, was represented by Mr. William Pepper Constable and his associates, Mr. John D. Alexander and Mr. Charles Carroll, Jr. Cultivate the habit of always seeing the best in people, and, more than that, drawing forth whatever is best in them.--Cuyler. NEWSPAPER!
