CANTOR SUED FOR DAMAGES Comedian And Others Are Named In Suit As Result Of Disturbance. THE GAY THIRTIES THE DAILY MAIL, HAGERSTOWN, MD., TUESDAY, AUGUST 1, 1939. ANGELES, Aug. 1 (fi>).— A $751,000 damage suit against Eddie Cantor, screen and radio comedian, was filed Monday as the restiu of a distrubance in a Hollywood broadcasting studio March 27. • Plaintiffs were Charles Gollob. apartment house manager, and his wife, Mrs. Elsie Gollob, who stated they went to the studio to hear Cantor broadcast. Their complaint set forth this version of the incident: When the broadcast ended they arose to leave only to be accosted "by a young woman employed by the broadcasting company, who asked them why they were leaving so soon. The Gollobs replied they had seen after-broadcast programs before and were not much interested in political affairs. Then the woman called for a bodyguard, who struck Mrs. Gollob down, referring to her as a Nazi. Gallob attempted to protect his •wife but was set upon by Bert Gordon, Cantor's assistant, known professionally as the "Mad Russian." The alleged assaults occurred despite their faithfulness in applauding during the regular broadcast at the instructions of a "cheer leader." In applauding they were willing to overlook fhe circumstances that Cantor's offerings consisted of *'ancient and not very funny gags." They demand $500,000 general 'damages, $250,000 punitive damages and $1,000 to cover medical expenses. Defendants include Gordon, the Reynolds Tobacco Company, sponsors of the program, and the Columbia Broadcasting System. A TRAFFIC TICKET THREfc GRANTED DIVORCE Eileene F.

"Andy Hardy Gets Spring Fever," now playing at the Maryland Theatre, is proof that audiences like these pictures and that Metro-Goldwyu-Mayer is more than keeping up the splendid pace set by the preceding productions. Told entertainingly, the story is of how Judge Hardy almost faces ruin through being mulcted by crooked promoters and how young Andy falls romantically in jove with his dramatics class teacher. The Judge finally manages to regain his money and Andy returns to his old sweetheart, Polly Benedict, before the last reel is over. The high spot of the evening for laughs is the high school play in which Andy plays the leading role. This is so expertly handled by Director W. S. Van Dyke H that all of us should be able to see ourselves of some years back in that hilarious presentation. WARNER BROS. THEATRES MARYLAND NOW SHOWING A BOY!

Nobody is much concerned abou Santa Claus just now, but the oth er occasion which calls for good be haviour is close at hand. Announce ment has been made that Russel Bros.' Circus will appear at Willo Lane show grounds, Hagerstowu Thursday, Aug. 3. . Parents find Russell Bros, a particularly worth-while circus £01 children because of a complete absence from its premises of any gambling games or undesirable exhibitions sometimes associated with itinerant amusement enterprises. The circus menagerie gives youngsters a chance to observe a variety of wild animals at close range. Especially appealing is the fascinating African chimpanzee. Topsy, with her childlike mannerisms and pranks. In the main circus performance, Walter Jeunier's marvelous trained sea-lion exhibition wins immediate response from children and adults alike, and Buddy, the star performer, is a prime favorite with all audiences. The elephants, of course, are always a source of delighted amazement to the kiddies, while in the clever tricks of cute little ponies, dogs, monkeys, and even cats, they can picture their own animal pets. The acrobatic and aerial performers with Russell Bros, are clean-cut, tine appearing athletic i Philbert, the Clown champions whose excellent physi Hies and demonstrations of skil tnd courage are an inspiration to my boy or girl who wants to grow ip strong and healthy. Nor let the clowns be over-looked, Children are as fond of these mer- y fellows as their favorite comic trip characters.
