C. Deering Wins Supervisor Post In Close Republican Race Notice to all Laurel and Hardy fans. "Way Out West" which with "Wild Horse Mesa" a Zane Grey "western" comes to the Iris Theater June 15-16, is the last and final full length Laurel Hardy comedy that can be obtained. Every feature length comedy this pair has turned out has played here during the last year. No more are available and you are urged to make an effort to see this one. It is with extreme regret that it is necessary to make this announcement. The pair of nit-wits have drawn more patrons into the Iris, midweek, than many of the so called Sunday specials have drawn on a Sunday. However, "Slave Girl" is a swell comedy too. Filmed in technicolor and featuring Humpy, the talking camel with a Brooklyn accent, plus all the beautiful dancing girls in Hollywood and the stunning Yvonne de Carlo it is excellent entertainment. In addition there is a 20 minute Technicolor subject that is a thriller— "The Calgery Stampede." Held in Calgary, Canada each year this bonaflde Rodeo is strictly a contest for the champion bronc rider, bulldogger and steer roper and is absolutely in no way whatsoever just merely a "show." Last year the champion bronc rider in this five day contest won a cash prize of $5000. "Slave Girl" and "Th.e Calgary Stampede" will be at the Iris Thursday, Friday and Saturday, June 11, 12 and 13. Allan Ladds new film, "Saigon' is also at the Iris Sunday and Mon day June 13-14. Co-starred is Veronica Lake.

The new plates are made of aluminum this year and are painted with a black background and white numbers. The plates have a corrugated effect which was developed to prevent cracking or breaking which the flat aluminum plate would be subjected to under constant vibrating while a car is in motion. Under present conditions, they are supposed to wear as well as the regular steel plates used previously. The new plates are much lighter in weight than those of former issue but measure the same in rectangular size. Two plates will be issued again this year and will replace the number tag which is in use at present.
