We're not trying to say that any of the material in a laugh-film will go skimming Into the stratosphere over new Tonis and tired toupees. Good gags are never tailored with such subtlety that they require an explanatory note in the theatre program. — In fact, Hollywood's jokesmiths aim their sights at our risibilities. Ana these, according to all up-to-date blueprints, are located somewhere wetween your mid-section and the South-end of your .most ticklish rib.

A Barrymore Is Coming To Town Ethel Barrymore Colt, daughter of famous actress Ethel .Barrymore, is the next attraction sponsored by the Kossuth 1 Mutual Concert Association, Miss Colt will appear in the Algona high school auditorium Monday night, Jan. 23, at 8 p.m. Miss Colt began her career on he Broadway stage as a dramatic actress, later appeared in light ipera, musical comedy and on •adio, and finally, in 1944 made icr operatic debut, and has been singing opera and concerts since. She has appeared in iTV opera roles during the past tnree years. Her program, as presented during concerts, is one which will offer musical entertainment of the best and has thrilled audiences all over the country. William Schutjer ing just don't appear in the picture. During the course of a day's work on any comedy, the professional humorists, the director, the staff and various crew- members come up with scream- ingly funny ideas and dialogue. Most of this laugh-material is great •• stuff, if only it can be made to fit into the tempo or pace of the picture. Gags thai actually fit the situation are sorted out and "kicked around." Not infrequently, serv- eral ideas are sure-fire laugh- provokers, but, the line of thought that they pursue opens up new avenues of approach to even funnier lines, or situations. In the process of sorting and fitting, the original gag may be lost altogether as it is "topped" and "retopped" by others. This is particularly true on a unit where comedy-lot veterans surround the director. * * • We recenlly spent a day on the Allied Artists "Crashing Las Vegas" company, which Jean Yarbrough was directing. Jean has put more of Filmland's famous comics through their paces than you could shake a slapstick at. He literally "grew up" around the comedy lots. He's been a comedy constructionist— (they're no longer called "gagmen")—a comedy collaborator and a top-notch writer of original comedies. ' * * • To a man like Yarbrough comedy is not just' a means of making a livelihood, it's an all- absorbing obsession. Every moment of the day, ho observes the world through the eyes of a con- noiseur of comedy. If he chuckles at the breakfast table, apparently over nothing at all, something has suggested to him a funny restaurant routine. He lives and breathes comedy! To a man like Yarbrough, On his present directorial assignment, Jean has unlimited gaglatitude. He's directing under producer Ben Schwalb, who wouldn't hesitate to build n replica of the Taj Mahal if he thought liis "Bowery Boys" could get a good Inugh routine out of tearing it down! For that matter, Yarbrough's unit production chief, Rex Bailey, with his countless contacts and knack of diplomatic persuasion, could probably arrange for the real thin?. To say nothing of later pacifying an Indian Rajah with a splintered mausoleum Seine backed by n staff that can furnish him with anything a sudden gag change may require, places a comedy director in an enviable position. Between Rex and first assistant director, Edward Morey, Jr., the more serious side of comedy-making is lifted from Jean's shoulders. As for front-of-the-camcra cooperation. Leo Gorcey and Huntz Hall would work all day in a snowstorm while wearing flimsy bathing suits if the situation was providing laughs. * * » With this combination to aid and abet him, Jean Yarbrough turned Gorcey and Hall loose upon an unsuspecting Las Vegas. That's like giving two playful monkeys a pair of hammers and leading them into a dynamite factory. You simply can't end up being bored with the results Las Vegas may recover, if her citizens can ever stop laughing » • » Yes! Many of the best laughs never reach the screen. In the "sh^ping-up" process good gags are replaced by better gags, laughs are discarded for bigger laughs and inspired plot twists "top" brilliant ideas. That's why we say that the public will miss many chuckles. But then, who misses the finest horse-and- Presbyterians Annual Meefingj Held, Lakota Lakoia-—The annual congregational meeting,of the Presbyterian church , was held last week.
