PAMM O'AttY , Pamp5, Here In "Petticoat Fever" COMEDY OF NORTH STAGED IN SNOW BLIZZARD IS Against a background of icebound Labrador, Robert IvTonlRom- ery and Myrna Loy are enacting one one of thc funniest -comedies ever screened. .in the new Metro-Goldwyn>Mayer picture. "Petticoat Fev- 'e'r" now at La Norn theater. Adapted from the stage hit of the same name, the story concerns a wireless operator who is so lonely that he holds prisoner two fliers, a beautiful young girl anil her mate companion, whom he rescues from the Arctic night. Reginald Owen heads the featured cast, as he blustery Englishman whose bride-to-be is snatched away from under his very nose. Others cast, are Otto Yanmoka, as the Eskimo man servant; Forrester Harvcv. Bo Ching, and Iris Ynmoaka. The brilliant direction of George Fitzmaurice is to n large ex,tent responsible for thc unabating merriment of this exceedingly funny picture Producer Frank Davis has dressed it with lavish production mountings. "Petticoat Fever" is the first picture to bring together Montgomery and Miss Loy since their memorable vehicle, "When Ladies Meet." Each lias gone far in personal popularity since that time and improved vastly in acting technique. The funniest sequence in the new picture and. no doubt one of the funniest ever screened, is the party given by Montgomery for his two guests—the parly for which only he and Miss Loy have the courageous flair to don evening clothes while an Arctic blizzard rages outside! Old Household Goods Are Lent When First Courthouse Was Dedicated NEARLY EIGHT MILLIONS SPENT IN AUSTIN LAST YEAR AUSTIN, May 30—Some Interesting details nf tin- financial operations and condition of the University of Texas havn ocen made public by Charles H.

Thc building was at LeFors, original county seat. AUSTIN, May 30.—A collection of eaUy Texas household goods lias been loaned to the University of Texas for display this .summer in the University Centennial exposition. A large amount came from Weatherford, collected through the efforts of Mayor G. A. Holland, who has a museum of his own. A loom now owned by Miss Betty Woody of Weatherford is one of the oldest pieces loaned for this display The loom was made of hand- shaped cedar in 1812 at Roane Tenn., by Sam Woody, the great- great-grandfather of Miss Betty Woody. It was brought to Texas in an ox-wagon in 1848 by the maker 1 .-son, and has been in Parker counts since 1850. Mrs. A. P. Wynn of Austin loane' a spinning wheel more than 101 years old. It is known as the Grannj Taylor wheel and was used in Park er county many years. Mrs. Wyni lived at Weatherford before she moved to Austin, where she no\ lives. The whole history of this an cient wheel has not been learned. Mayor Holland sent several hide bottom chairs made in Parker coun ty before the Civil War by a mai named Jack-son. The bottoms ie out, but thc mayor had them re stored when he put the chairs in hi pioneer museum. A quilting frame in use by th Dale Miller family of Weatherfor more than 60 years was mads avail able by Henry Miller and will b displayed. A red, .white and blue Lone Sta quilt, designed and pieced by Mi- Tom Hunter and her daughter, Mi- Prank Dore, both of Weatherford, will also be displayed in this exhibit. The quilting was done by the Misses Willie and Laura Boyd of Garner, small Parker county town In the center is a small five pointed star, and about it in outline 10 stars, in alternating red, white and blue. In the four corners of the quilt are other star designs in the three colors. The collection of early pioneer home furnishings is only a small part of the historical and natural history exhibits which will be opened to the public on June in Austin. Gregory gymnasium, one of the largest buildings in Texas, will become the main exposition hall. Reading rooms in The University of Texas library building will house historical exhibits. So far as is possible without disturbing the teaching program, all departments of the University will oosn their museums, libraries, laboratories, and workshops for inspection by visitors. MORE EXPANSION Add to the long Hat of industrial ! expansion projects that of the Owens-Illinois Glass company at Toledo. The stockholders recently agreed on an $8,000,000 program. Of this sum, $1,000,000 will be used for enlarging the Libby Glass Manufacturing company's plant at Toledo. The specific program includes a new bottle plant on the Pacific bottle manufacturing plant in Chi- coast and rehabilitation of the cago along with various improvements and expansion of its industrial materials and other manufacturing businesses. WARSAW. May :iO. i/!')—Voices arc heard In Poland calling: for the return of the famous pianist. Isnace Paderewskl, as a welder of thc nation against communism. Though he has been aloof since 1920, some believe he could serve the nation again as he did when first premier of thc republic. He Is reported here to have conferred recently with several prominent Poles in Switzerland, among them ex-Premier Vincenz Witos. who lives abroad to escape a prison sentence, and Generals Sikorski and Hallcr who have been on the outs with the government. Veterans Demand Action Serious Holing in various parts of 10 country has caused much COUTH. Lwow, Krakow and Czensto- lowa were the centers of dlsturb- nce.s by unemployed. A more ener- etic economic policy is being dc- landcd so that this discontented roup will not bo prey for commu- ilstic propaganda. The Federation of Ex-Army Moi jussrcl a resolution immediately Her the Lwow liots calling for ":' peedini; up of economic, life in tin vlclest sense, which Is necessary no nly on account of the poverty ol jur country and the duty to over joint; it. but also on account of Hi iccessity of preparing proper tic 'ease of our country." Among those who endorsed the •esolution were Madame Alexandra Pilsudska, widow of the ex-dictator; Colonel Slawek, ex-premier and author of the present constitution. Premier Koscialkowski and Vice Premier Kwiathowski. Ex-Envoy Offers Program The press was almost unanimous in citing thc Lwow riots as proof of bolshvik propaganda. The more than one million unemployed, thc press says, offer excellent ground for such'activities. There are 450,000 registered unemployed and more than 600,000 unregistered. In addition, it is calculated that there are nearly 2,500,000 on farms who arc not .starving but who are nevertheless underfer!. Tyt-us Filipowicz, former amba'J- sador to Washington, presented a public works program and carried on extensive propaganda in its favor. He wanted t;i finance it by controlled inflation. The Federation of Ex-Army Men has a scheme for breaking up large land holdings to the benefit of the landless peasantry. But there is no cash to carry out the plan. The federation has proposed a Long A Pampan ('. I'.

Such a party, its leaders hope, would block the feared spread of communism. There are jlso those who advocate, in addition to economic measures, a political consolidation of all patriotic elements. It is in this group that voices are heard requesting the return of Paderewski and an amnesty for Witos. Polish Courts Han 'Old Maid' WARSAW (/P)—A society matroi who dubbed an unmarried womai an "old maid" in the hearing o witnesses was sued by the ol'1't-ndec spinster and had to pay damage after the case was carried to th supreme court of Poland. The higl tribunal held the term offensiv and perilous to matrimonial chanc cs. The first petroleum refinery in the United States was built in 1855 at Pittsburgh, Pa., by Samuel Keir. Its capacity was five barrels daily. Fresh Paint Is Beauty Agent of Very Few Rivals Painting is one of thc most im ortant operations in the buildinj f the new house, both from the tandpoint of appearance and of up- eep. Skimping in painting is the jocrest kind of economy. The out- ide paint is the skin that protects he structure, and it is the most onspicuous feature of the house, j Discolored or cracked or peeling ; jainl will tnoil the appearance of ' lie bcit-deslyned house. As .soon as the paint coat starts o give way the whole exterior struc- .ure is open lo the attacks of the 'Icme.ntK. If the, owner is parlicu- ar about the appearance of his louse mid its structural integrity, ic will repaint the exterior as soon is he sees the slightest tendency of failure of the paint surface. If he ,ets it go until real deterioration sets in, the expense will be far greater in repainting, because all the failing paint must be removed before the new paint is applied. To put new paint over disintegrating old paint is worse than the waste of time and money involved in putting on the new coat, for paint has only the strength of its base coat; it' that has lost its grip on the surface to which it is supposed to cling, no amount of new paint put on top of it will avail to strengthen that hold. Next to poor workmanship and materials, moisture is the greatest factor in paint failure. Moisture comes from within the house as well us from without, so to insure a good paint job the back of all outside wood should be painted before it is erected. The original painting job, therefore, is of the greatest importance. First-class materials expertly mixed and placed are the only insurance Added to the $2.771.000 spent by the University Itself, Mr. Sparenberg estimated that 7,778 students in the last summer school spent $583,300 and 7.658 students in the long session closing spent $4.119,20. The total figure of $7,473,500 does lot include the money spent here y the University Ex-students As- ociation, the Texas Student Pub- ications. Inc., nor the money spent n Austin by visitors attending football games, the Texas relays, am innual Intel-scholastic league meet ind other events held at the uni- •ersity, Mr. Sparenberg said. Speaking of the university en- downmcnt or permanent fund, he said the book value last August 31 vas $32.101 ,(599, but, only $16,000,001 of that sum is productive. Includcc n the total figure, he explained, i 2,000,'000 acres of land In West Tex is belonging to the University o Texas carried on the books at a nominal value of $5 an acre; $4,000; 000 in bonds of the university re gents and $2,000,000 in bonds own& by Texas Agricultural and Median! cal college which were used lo building purposes. The Texas A. , M. college is getting slightly le.- than one-third of the income thii endowment funds received froi endownment funds received froi oil production upon university lands. Mr. Sparenberg compared the university endowment fund with that of Harvard which has between $140,000,000 and $150,000,000, the largest In the country. He said figures for the year ending last August 31 showed the value of the university's physical plant was $18,315,000 and that $2,000,000 is being added by reason of new construction.

REX THEATER Mr. Sparenberg ventured the prediction that the university building program will not have an ending at least for a number of years. "When the $4,000,000 building program was projected, we thought that the building would do for a number of years," he said. "But during thc last year four new dor- and the university main „ have been under conslruc: lion by reason of Hie PWA program. It seems that the PWA program picked up where the $4,000,000 program ended. If present plans of the board of regents are carried out, another building program will be started before this one ends." Mr. Sparenberg said the new mah building was scheduled for completion September 1, but lie declared that it will probably be Christmas before it is ready for occupancy.

Health Units in Texas Go Ahead AUSTIN, May 30—Texas local and ounty health departments are rap- dly gaining recognition over the United States, according to results of city health conservation and ru- •al health contests recently con- lucted jointly by the United States Chamber of Commerce and the American Public Health Association. Dr. Watson S. Rankln, Chairman of the committee on awards, has announced that in the south central division of the rural health contest first place was won by the El Paso city-county health depart- nent, with honorable mention" gong to Dallas, Nolan, and Potter counties' health departments, and in the Inter-chamber city health conservation 'contest Dallas was jlven honorable mention in the class of cities between 250,000 and 500,000 population. The contests were conducted in an effort to reduce economic losses due to -unnecessary Illness and premature deaths and to Interest business men in public health work of their communities. They were open to full-time health units provided a local chamber of commerce or similar organization was affiliated with the United States Chamber of Commerce. City competitions totaled 235 and rural contestants included 160 counties and districts. All health and sanitation items surrounding the units were considered, including adequacy of health facilities and their support, preventive measures, safe milk and water supplies, school health work, health education, modern sewage disposal, provision for periodic health examinations, care of communicable and infectious diseases, prenatal care of expectant mothers, protection of children from diphtheria, and better vital statistics and health records. Much credit has been given to the active support and help of the state departments, of health in bringing these local and county health units up to the standards they have reached. Several oil wells in the United States have been drilled to depths greater than 10,000 feet, or about two miles, and present equipment permits drilling to more than 15,000 feet, or nearly three miles. HUGE SPEAKER FOR FAIR ! DALLAS, Tex.—The new Fletcher type loud speaker, which reproduces ordinary phonograph records without distortion to the volume and quality of a 400-piece orchestra, will be heard publicly for the first time at the Texas Centennial Exposition, opening In Dallas June 6. The unit, developed in the Bell Laboratories, was built at a cost of $30,000 to show the possibilities of sound transmission and reproduction. It was installed in the Exposition Band Shell through the courtesy of Western Electric company and C. C. Langevln, of Los Angeles. Because of the high cost of construction only three of these 1,600 pound speakers have been built. •«•Law Catches Argentine Gang BUENOS AIRES (/P)—Four gangsters, who In 1932 kidnaped Dr. Jaime Favelukes in one of the country's most widely publicized "snatch" cases, have been sentenced to terms of 16 years each.
