JPAGfe "TWELVE THE PAMPA DAILY NBWS, Plrtrtf«, SUMfoAY -3tJm 21, 1936 BLOKLl TO 'HAIR GOES UP AS SKIRTS GO DOWN' "Sweep your hair up and off your ysrs for evening," advises Joan Blondell, beautiful young star of "Sons O 1 Guns." the new Warner Bros, musical film that opens at the LaNora Theatre beginning today. "Daytime coiffures can be as simple and casual as you like." she goes on to explain. "But when evening comes and you exchange your short sports skirt for a long anil formal evening gown, your hair must be re-arranged accordingly. And the very feminine styles that are the darlings of the evening mode at present, the most fitting as well as the most becoming coiffure is one that shows your little pink ears. "Therefore, the smart tiling to do is to have your hair cut and waved in a simple yet adaptable fashion that will allow you to comb it down in a trim, clean-cut line for daytime, yet can, by a few twists of your wrist and adept motions of your hairbrush, be altered into a sophisticated yet utterly feminine hairdress for evening." To prove her point, Miss Blondell described her own current "hair-do". First, her hair is parted in the middle and the ends are trimmed at a length just below the lobe of her ears on the sides, becoming about an inch longer around the back. "Waves are set on each side just at the temples, running in semicircular fashions toward the back, and the ends are curled in one tier of small flat ringlets. During the day, Miss Blondell combs her hair softly and sleekly down at the sides, allowing the ringlets to lie flat against her ears, the top of her head conforming to the lines of the flat waves, Then, when evening comes, she combs her hair softly and loosely and backward from her face, so that the waves fall in rather loose effect with a widening impression across the temples. The ends are brushed upward over the ears and back off of them, and instead of conforming to the set ringlets of the day, they are fluffed into a mass of soft loose curls. Quite an idea, isn't it? "Sons O' Guns" is a colorful, mirth laden and tuneful romantic comedy of the World War days, dealing only with the bright and hilarious side of doughboy life. Besides Miss Blondell, the cast includes Joe E. Brown in the steller role, Beverly Roberts, Eric Blore, Craig Reynolds, Winifred Shaw, Joseph King and Robert Barrat.

TSTINE 'DEVIL'S SQUADRON' TO BE FEATURE AT REX Before a new airplane can be taken aloft by an ordinary pilot, it must first be tested in flight for structural defects. A test pilot, daredevil of the skies, must put the ship through its paces, straining It at every possible point so that those who follow him will be able to fly the new plane in safety. One of the dozen men In the country who are qualified to perform this hazardous feat, is' Herb White, a slim, curlcy-headed Swede. The courageous pilot was a boon to the Columbia Studios during the filming of "Devils Squadron," a drama of the test pilots starring Richard Dix which opens on Sunday at the Rex theatre. The script of the picture specifical- ly called for ft certain type o —a 1,000 horsepower Northrop awn- ma, duplicate of the plane in which, Howard Hughes recently broke the trans-continental record—and .the only model available was brand hfeW —and untested. In the film, th6 plane was to be flown by Rlchafd Dix, Gene Morgan, Henry MotUsbh-, Lloyd Nolan and Gordon Jones; but before any of these men, all Of whom are relatively good pilots, could step aboard the craft it had to be tested. And White was given, the dangerous job. The plane had to be put through its paces—loops, spins, dives, rolls—• In order to test it properly. White knew that if the strain proved too much for the ship—well, he climbed into the cockpit, waved his hand cheerily and gave her the gun. the Northrup Gamma the test with a 9-o jk>wfer ifllvfe .Jfftittt 20,600 feet in the air.
