TONESOTHERN MISS ROGERS AT MARYLAND "Fifth ATT^Tu e Girl" Opens Engagement At Local Theater. One of the season's most delightful pictures is "Fifth Avenue Girl," Ginger Rogers' new starring vehicle for RKO Radio, which opened its local. showings yesterday at the Maryland Theatre.' ' ' Very different from Miss Rogers' recent "Bachelor Mother," but even funnier at times, the new picture revolves around the, hectic experiences of a working girl guest in a stately Fifth Avenue home. She is hired for the job by the discouraged bead or the-family, who despairs of ever persuading his wife and children to regard him as other than a walking bank-account. The girl's advent, as expected, alters the situation considerably. The wife, thinking her husband intends to marry the girl as soon as she goes to Reno, changes her plans and decides to stick around. The son, who has been neglecting the family pump business for polo, starts to work again, and the daughter gives up her dizzy gold fish-gulping friends for a serious romance with the chauffeur. The latest dramatic March of Time film, "The Brittle Fleets of England." is playing for the last time tomorrow at the Maryland Theatre. The film presents a comprehensive and unccnsored picture of the British Navy, emphasizing its vital role in the defense of the British 32m pi re nnd in the strategy of the Allies in their war against Nazi Germany. Gene An try, pictured' above with his famous mount, Champion, provides Colonial • audiences with splendid action, tingling thrills and pleasurable music in his latest film,' "Colorado Sunset." It is being shown today and tomorrow at the Colonial Theatre. 'GOLDEN BOY," SHOWING LAST TIMES TODAY AT HENRY'S THEATRE "Golden Boy." Columbia's motion picture based upon Clifford Odets' successful stage play of the same name, which opened Monday at Henry's Theatre, is showing last times today. Undor the direction of Reuben Mamoulian, ihe film hit is made a vibrant entertainment. And like Columbia's previous stage adaptation, "You Can'L Take It AVilh You." "Golden Boy" proves again that the affairs of everyday people is a fertile source of excitement on the screen. Its characters, Joe- Bonaparte— the "Golden Boy," Lorna Moon— the dame from Newark, Tom Moody —the fight promoter and all the others, appear as living, breathing people of a real world. Odets' intricate sketch of earh character is perfect, and the film's cast portrays each one smooihly. flawlessly. Ann Sothern and Franchot Tone in "Fast and Furious," showing today and tomorrow at the- Academy. COLONIAL TODAY — TOMORROW Continuous 1 Till 11 P. M.

Va., Oct. 27 Peyton Blankenship, who pro claimed he intended to commit sui cide by leaping from the first Kun tington National Bank building changed his mind last night after perching for an hour and 15 min utes on the 13th floor ledge of the building and crawled to safety. Heeding the soothing words of Police Chief Lon H. Whitten Blankenship, 21, finally retreated from the ledge while a crowd of several thousand persons cheered Shortly after he took up his po sition on the ledge, with legs dangling in space, he had dropped a note to the crowd which quickly gathered, saying: "To whom it may concern: "I'm up on top of the Huntington National Bank building. Reason: I don't want to live any longer. I've been a rotter and am ready to receive my just punishment. Ask my wife why. * * * Yours, Peyton Blankenship." Police and firemen quickly threw Hues about the building to keep back the crowd and Chief Whitten and several others attempted to dissuade Blankenship, but attempts to move toward him only brought screamed threats to leap. "I'll do anything you want me to do, Blanky," Whitten. soothed. "Just come off there. I won't put you in jail. I'm your friend.". Whitten sent for Blankenshlp'i one-year old daughter, Patricia Ann, but sight of the sleeping child failed to move him, and Whitten resumed Ms entreaties. The chief promised, lie said, to try to straighten out marital difficulties, and cautioned, "think of where you'll go if you jump, Blanky." Finally heeding the chief's pleas, Blenkenship crawled slowly toward a fire platform and was led, crying to safety. A cordon of police led him from lie building and to a waiting car. and he was taken to the home of relatives.
