Filmed hy Warner Bros., it has been hailed by preview audiences is the outstanding dramatic event of the year—a rare combination of Brilliant talents in the fields of: icting. writing and directing. One feminine star — especially if she be that double Academy winner, Bette Davis—might be considered sufficient for a photoplay, no mater how great. But in "The Old Maid" there are two. Besides Bette Davis there is the lovely and high- y capable Miriam Hopkins, who • starred in many a topnotch production on her own account. The girls have equally important parts. This is the Jirst time, since they cached stardom, that either has »ver shared acting honors or top )illing honors with another player of her own sex. With Miss Davis and Miss Hop<ins in the picturization of "The Old Maid" are such players as George Brent, Jane Bryan, Donald Urisp, Louise Fazenda, James Stephenson. Jerome Cowan, AVil- iam Lundigan. Cecilia Loftus, lanet Shaw, DcWolf Hopper and Rand Brooks. The director was Stlmund Goulding, whose latest previous triumph was Bette Davis' sensational "Dark Victory."

Blood Donors To Organize Second Group Of Elks Submit To Tests; Big Demand Recently. Due to the large demand for blood transfusions and the fact that the first "blood squad" of the Hagerstown Lodge of Elks was overworked, blood tests for a second squad of 22 members began last evening in the Elks' lodge rooms. Several members of the lodge had their blood tested by Dr. W. Ross Cameron, city and county health officer, who was assisted by nurses from the local health department and Dr. Richard B. Prather. The tests will continue until the full squad is organized. Those already tested in the second squad are: C. M. Rouzer, E. D. Schlotterbeck, B. Frank Leister, Charles W. Harbaugh, Wilbur M. Fiery, G. W. Fisher, George Buys, James M. McGuffin, C. L. Mobley, W. K. Strine and Brewer L. Stouffer. The first squad consists of 25 members. On the squad is one representative of the rare No. 3 type. He is John E. France, past exalted ruler of the local lodge, who was called upon to donate some of his blood soon after joining the first squad. There are four types of blood. All members of the squads are classified as to types and these records placed on file. They are subject to call at any time. They do not charge for their services. Dr. Cameron stated that free blood squads are rare. The local squads have done some fine work and in several cases lives of patients have undoubtedly been saved. Last week a Washington countian, who was taken to a Baltimore hospital suffering from injuries in an accident, called upon the Elks for help as a blood transfusion was necessary. A member promptly responded. This patient is now recovering. Since the work was started here last March the members have donated blood for eight transfusions locally and two in Baltimore. There were only 1,612 deaths from influenza in Texas in 1938, compared with 3,675 in 1937. CONTINUOUS'11 A.M. foil P.M.
