THE DAILY MAIL, HAGERSTOWN, MD., WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 1939. THREE PANAMA CALLS All American Republics Invited To Confer On Preserving Peace. WASHINGTON, Sept. 6.—With the blessing of the "United States government, the Republic of Panama issued invitations last night to all the American republics to at- |§nd a confernce designed to pre- ^•rve peace in the Western Hem- Jsphere, maintain normal trade and prevent financial disturbances on this continent as a result of Europe's war. It was learned at the State Department that the Panamanian government was sending out invitations in the name of itself, the United States, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Peru, Colombia, Cuba and Mexico. The State Department disclosed that a 'number of South American governments had suggested that there should be some consultation in line with the declaration of Pan-American solidarity which was approved by the International Conference at Lima, Peru, last year.

In "Good Girls Go to Paris," Douglas portrays a professor of Greek mythology "who knows every goddess by her first name." Miss Blondell, who says it's all Greek to her, knows she has arms and knows that she wants to put them around the professor. She's just a waitress—but she doesn't have to wait too long. The film is termed a frantic, romantic laugh spree by all who have seen it, and it ^deftly stands up as a worthy successor to such other Columbia comedies • as "Theodora Goes Wild." "It Happened One Night" and "The Awful Truth." Walter Connolly, Joan Perry. Alexander D'Arcy, Isabel Jeans. Henry Hunter and Alan Curtis head the supporting cast. AT THE MARYLAND The outstanding toughies of screen history, James Cagney and George Raft, are teamed in "Each Dawn I Die," a Warner Bros, picture dealing realistically with life in a big prison which opens tomorrow at the Maryland Theatre. It is a frank, grim, brutal and tremendously exciting story to which these two premier bad men of the screen have lent their talents, and if they were tough before, they are veritable hell cats now. Kach in his own way outdoes everything in the line of vicious characterization he has ever done before. At the outset of the film, the characters portrayed by ihe stars are poles apart, Cngney being merely an altruistic and aggressive newspaper reporter with not the slightest trace of viciousness in his make-up, while Raft is the same hard and callous criminal that he seems to be until the very end. Their paths cross when the young reporter is framed on a manslaughter charge and sent to the -state penitentiary for a long term. Raft, who is a big shot in the underworld, has finally been caught and is up for the rest of his life. Rebellious from the outset because of the injustice done him, Cagney is a difficult prisoner for the authorities to handle. Dionnes in New Film As shown in "Five Times Five." a short subject of special interest to be shown at the Maryland Theatre starting tomorrow, starring the five famous Dionne girls, the Quintupleis are healthy, energetic, bright er-thnn-average five year olds. Their interests and activities are much the same as those of little girls everywhere: they play store, hide and seek; perform on swing and slide, and are enormously excited at the prospect of a trip to Toronto.

Americans On Torpedoed Liner Famous Flier Scores In Air Classic; To Abandon Racing Career. CLEVELAND, Sept. 6.—Col. Roscoe Turner sped to his third triumph here in the 300-mile Thompson Trophy classic—which he immediately declared was the last race of his 12-year competitive career. The swashbuckling flier gunned his l)ig aluminum Turner-Laird, powered by a Pratt and Whitney Twin Wasp, 2S2.53G miles an hour for a convincing victory over six other pilots. Shortly after the start he thought he had cut a pylon and rounded it again, but made up this handicap to finish more than ten miles ahead of Tony Levier, Montebello, Calif., over the 10-mile closed course. Pylon trouble cost him his tAvo previous Thompsons. The Chicagoan, just a shade behind his record of 2S3.419 miles per hour set in 193$, won $16,000 and became the only man to take the speed classic three times. For second place, Levier collected' $S,000. Third place and $4,000 went to Earl Ortrnan, Canadian Colonial Airways pilot from Montreal and Newark, N. J., who flew 254.435 miles an hour in his Marcoux- Bromberg. Levier's second place time in his Schoenfeldt Special was 272.538. Steve Wittman, bespectacled flyer from Oshkosh, Wis., finished in fourth place, but on the question of whether he rounded one pylon hinged whether he collected $2,500. His speed was 249.537. Harry Crosby, of Burbank, Calif.. flying the plane he designed after a "flying fish," went 244.522 miles an hour for fifth place money of $1,500. Lieut. Joe Mackey, of San Antonio, flying a plane owned by Turner, was sixth at 232.926 for $1,000. The other entrant in the race— which took 63 minutes and 42.52 seconds for Turner to win—was Art Chester, of Los Angeles. Ortman, too, declared he was through with speed flying. A year ago he said the same thing, but obtained leave from his job in order to win a nest egg for his coming marriage. Traffic Officers' School To Start Two members of the Hagerstown Police Department are expected to attend the third annual University of Maryland Traffic Officers' Training School to be held at College Park from September 11 to 23. State Officer John A. White, who formerly was stationed in Hagerstown, has been in Hagerstown and other nearby cities of Maryland seeking candidates for the school. It is understood that the Board of Street Commissioners and the Mayor and Council favor the pa'f- ticipation of local officers. The names of the local police to attend are expected to be announced the latter part of this week. The school is conducted by the College of Engineering at the "University in cooperation with the safety division of the International Association of Chiefs of Police. The officers will be schooled in all modern and scientific traffic and police work. The instructors Visits State Park On Trek Of Trail A Vermont man, about 25 years of age, whose name "was not learned, who is tramping the Appalachian Trail from Vermont to North Carolina, stopped off lor a short time recently at the Washington Monument State Park above Boonsboro. The young man, who talked for a short time to .Robert I. Palmer, park superintendent, said that he had started out from a town near the Maine line and had been out for 98 days on the trail when he arrived at the Washington monument. He said he intended to follow the trail for about four more weeks, which would bring him probably to North Carolina. He said he was making the trek as a body builder and that he had already gained ten pounds. He carried equipment, including a pup tent, which weighed about thirty pounds. He is sleeping out in the woods each night. The Appalachian Trail, from Maine to Georgia, passes through the Washington Monument State Park.
