For this Friday and Saturday, April 15 and 16, another ideal week-end show is listed. Miriam Hopkins and Phillips Holmes appear in the new Paramount picture, "Two Kinds of Women," plus an extra selected short subject program. This is an Ideal weekend show and a large crowd is expected to attend. The ever-popular Charles Farrell and Madge Evans appear together as stars in the new Fox Film hit, "After Tomorrow." Acclaimed by critics as the best Charles Farrell triumph since. "Seventh Heaven," this remarkable picture is sure to please. A wonderful story, combined with two great stars, makes this one of the outstanding presentations of the present year. "After Tomorrow" is scheduled for a one day showing on Wednesday, April 20th. To miss "Tho Gny Caballero," with George O'Brien and Conchita Montenegro, the attraction listed for Friday and Saturday, April 22 and 23, would be to sacrifice exceptional entertainment.

By building a new road from. Denton to Federals burg a distance of from three to fou miles would be eliminated. At Elder ndo much improvement could be mad by eliminating curves and corners From Sharptown to Salisbury a new straight road would be built, shorten ing the distance about five miles. In all, about ten miles would be cut of the present road and probably a half hour or more of time saved by th elimination of the bad curves. A rood of this kind from Salisbury through Denton to Matapeake Ferry would cut down the time and distance very materially from the southern section of the Eastern Shore, in traffic headed toward Baltimore and Washington. When' this road is completed there will probably be an improvement in the ferry service, the latter probably running from Stevensville to the Western Shore, cutting the ferry time down to about twenty minutes and thus making it possible to reduce the ferry charge. On the Western Shore the ferry would land at a point several miles nearer Baltimore, thus cutting down the distance on the other side. When this Boulevard is completed it will make it possible for a car to make the trip from Washington or Baltimore to Ocean City in possibly or 4 hours over roads as good or better than any in this section.
