A big carnival, which is alleged to have conducted a dozen forms of gambling, -was closed in a-sensational raid at Hancock last night by County Investigator Wayne Sellman and Officers Apple and Shives. Although a number of the carnival attendants escaped when "the law" closed in, eight were arrested and fined '$10 and costs each by Magistrate Preston Bowles. The carnival, conducted by North and South Carolinians, opened the first of the week. During the past few days complaint after complaint has poured into the office of State's Attorney Charles F.

The apple game, bingo, fish pond, chuck-o-luck, 'ball game, shooting, money pitching and calloo were flourishing when the raid was staged, Mr. Sellmau said. There was even, a "wild man" from "Africa" eating live, "wild" chickens, Mr. Sellman said, but he left earlier in the day on a freight. Cruelty complaints had been made against the "African." Seven of those arrested pleaded guilty to gambling charges and the •ighth. was found guilty. All plead•4 poverty but after jail commitments had been prepared, one of the 'men shelled out a roll of bills "big enough to choke a mule" and paid the fines. The carnival left town late last Bight.

The film deals with the plight of a group of airplane travelers forced down in a tropical jungle. While head-hunting natives threaten, to wipe out the whole party, romance and adventure and jealousy and heroism flourish among them, as the two pilots labor to repair the craft and fly it out to civilization. And when the survivors are ready to go, they discover that the crippled plane can carry only five of them—the others must stay behind and face certain death! Around this stark situation the film's cast and technical staff have woven a brilliantly developed piece of screen-fare, grim, colorful, realistic, tender and memorable. Two romances, the moral disintegration of two of the party under the strain, outstanding sacrifices from others who, in normal circumstances, would be considered public enemies, and a striking climax when a man under sentence of death is appointed the final judge to select the five members who shall be allowed to live, all comprise unforgettable features of the picture.
