DENTON JOURNAL Page 8 MELVIN ft JOHNSON. Inc., Publishers Saturday Morning, November 19, 1938 DENTON STORE DISPLAYS SENSATIONAL NEW PIANO "One of the best indications of improving 1 business conditions today is the increasing activity in the piano business," Mrs. Gail Cooper said this week when asked about the new line of Weaver pianos which the Cooper Furniture Company is now handling. Mrs. Cooper says that more and moie parents are realizing the increasing importance of musical education in the lives of our children, and there is a real demand for new pianos that meet modern requirements. The new piano on display at Cooper's Store is called the Weaver Verli- Mignon. It is really an upright grand, shaped like the colonial spinet, and has a tone like the finest grand piano. It is the result of a revolutionary development in piano construction, called bi-Ievel action, originated and patented by the Weaver Company, makers of pianos and organs for sixty-eight years. This bi-level construction applies the direct blow beneath the key level, thus enabling Weaver to make the Verti-Mignon beautiful in appearance, properly pio- portioned with plenty of knee room, yet small in size to meet modern . decorative requirements. Most important of all, the new principle makes possible a small piano with fine full tone, a deep resonant bass and an exquisitely clear treble. RICHARD DIX DRAWS POWERFUL ROLE IN "SKY GIANT" Noted »for his powerful dramatic portrayals, Richard Dix has one of the most gripping roles of his career in "Sky Giant," his new vehicle for RKORadio at Ridgely Theatre Friday and Saturday, November 18 and 19. As a transport pilot assigned to manage a big aviation school, and later to command mapping a flight across the Arctic wastes on a projected air route to Europe, Due has unusual opportunities for a memorable characterization. Romance Time Prevails in "Having Wonderful Time" A series of romances flourishing at a summer vacation camp, is woven into the co-starring vehicle for Ginger Rogers and Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., entitled "Having Wonderful Time," at Ridgely Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, November 21, 22 and 23. Although Ginger Rogers, playing a stenographer, visits the resort primarily to evade a fatuous fiance, she soon finds herself head-over-heels in a romance with Douglas Fairbanks Jr., a young law student working as a waiter. "Fire Of A Kind" Adds Thrilling Chapter to Film Library When Dr. Allen Roy Dafoe is presented with a print of the Dionne Quintuplets' new starring production, "Five 1 Of A Kind," Thursday, November .24, at the Ridgely Theatre, a thrilling new chapter will have been added to one of the most important and interesting of all screen volumes. Dr. Dafoe, physician to Yvonne, An- nette, Cecile, Eniilie and Muiie Dionne since the day of their birth, May 28, 1931, has assembled an almost complete and continuous scieen biography of tlio only quintuplets in woild historv to survive moie than a few houis. He has a piint of "The Country Doctor," made when the babio, weie 18 months, and of "Reunion" made when they were 27 months. TRACY IS MICKEY ROONEY'S MODEL AS "TOPS" ACTOR Mickey Rooney figures he must have been born with a tabbit's foot in his hand, he's that lucky. It's not because he happens to be working in pictures as a whole but becau-e right now he's woiking alongside Spencer Tracy \\heic he can watch the fellow he considers the greatest actor in the world. So Mickey wont around the M-G-M studios visiting Tiaiy»on the set whenever possible and itching. to get into a scene with the star., Then, Diiector Norman Tarn-op | called Mickey into his office and told | him that he was going todiicct "Boys Town," at the Dcntonia Theatre, Fii- day and Saturday, November 18 and 19, and that. Mickey was going to be starred along with a fellow named Tracy. "You could have knocked me over with a snow flake," s.-^s Mickey. "Right then and theie I knew that prayer,; really woik because I'd sure been praying for that chance." Brilliant Cast In "Four's A Crowd 1 ' Top-Notch Comedy Coming to Dentonia With a cast topped by Errol Flynn. Olivia de Haviland, Rosalind Russell and Patric Knowles, "Four's A Crowd," Warner Brae, swiftly-paced comedy romance, will be the attraction at the Dentonia Theatre Monday and Tuesday, November 21 and 22. Walter Connolly, Hugh Herbert, Melville Cooper and Franklin Pangborn arc al-o featured. In the filming of "Four's A Crowd," the objective of every one concerned was to set a new all-time laugh record, and, in keeping with this laudable purpose, there is not a_ single moment in the picture which is intended to be taken seriously. Hilarious Hi-Jinx Rate Top Spot For New Comedy Harold Lloyd, who was last seen 1 on local screens over a year and a half ago in "The Milky Wny," returns next Wednesday only, November 23, to the Dentonia Theatre in his latest comedy, "Professor Beware." Hilarious hi-jinx are in order when Lloyd starts a screwy ciot-s-country jaunt in search of a job. It seems that Lloyd employed as an Egyptologist in a museum, loses his p a n t = . . . and his job, in order to help a beautiful girl, Miss Welch, get a screen test. Raye, Hope and Grable Star In Marine Comedy Join the navy and see the girls! That's a fair picture of a sailor'^ life, at least when the fleet's in, according to Paramount's new marine comedy, "Give Me a Sailor," Thursday and Friday, November 24 and 25, nt the Dcntonia Theatre. With Bob Hope, Martha Raye, Betty Grable and Jack Whiting playing the leading roles, the picture tells a rollicking story of two sailors who pursue the i=ame girl but change their minds when the girl's Cinderella sister turns out to be the winner of a national beauty contest.

I T*t' Roosevelt iidministiation in its foil-tan policy and pionouncementii has shown itself obsc- sed by the dic- l tutors. It is this conceiitialion of feai and attention on dictatois that the git-atest tin tat to deniociacy is to be found. It is a well establi hed law of tile that jou center voiu atten- | lion upon \ o u imitate. The piesent j Administration has ic-sisted uveiy ef- ioit on the p a i l of lecc-nt Cougiesses I to b n n f j about a moic- democratic j c o n t i o l of foreign policy thioiigh the n e u t i a l i t y law, tne war l e f c r c n d u m , and the establishment of a national dofcn e policy by Congu-ss. It has on the contrary made everj efFoit to establish one-man contiol of foieign afFans which means one-man contiol of the issues of peace and war. By the repeated intioduction of a mobilization bill it has endeavored to open the way for a militaiy dictatoiship not only in tune of war but in time of any na' lonal emergency. The leccnt elections have shown a widcspicad . icaction against efforts to control the wltole life of the United States from Washington, but If government by the people is to be maintained it muat be strengthened at what is now its weakest point--con- tiol of foreign policy. There is good leason to believe thai the incoming Congiesi will ic-cognize t h a t fact and that the opposition will provide the Icadeihhip in a sound peace policj which the people .have repeatedly shown they desire. PARTLY COVERED The wage-hour act does not change the lelations of about 31,000,000 vvoi kei s who ai c under State and local jurisdiction. Less than one in twenty vvoikers are affected by the new labor standnnl act. Daily newspapers generally fall under the provisions of the Act, but employes of weekly or sonii-vvrckly newspapers having circulations under 3,000, most of which are in the county where published, are not within the meaning of the law. The average hourly rate in many of the countrj's principal industries runs from 63 cents to more than a dollar, and the hours are adjusted amicably between the employers and the workers, which saves headaches for all concerned. The Administrator of the Act is confident that higher wagc.5 will follow in all lines, and the mal-adjustments of the law will straighten out as experiences develop the changes needed. Approximately 1,500,000 arc on the wrong side of the law, either with icgaid to wages or hours, and their affairs will receive fin.t attention.
