NO NiiD TO DRISS UP. COM! AS YOU ARI BRING THi KIDDIES FREE FIRE CHIEF HOES, PLUS COMEDY 2 Cartoons Those lucky people who buy tickets to the YM-YW Travel and Adventure 'series will surely get a lot of globe-trotting this year. The committee has a final line-up on speakers and films for the new season which will start Oct. 29. The first feature will be on Iceland, Capri of the North, by Bob Davis. This is a film from a country seldom seen on the platform series of the United States. For that reason, the committee expects an unusual turn-out. Following that, Harry Brlggs will bring a hot-climate picture to the screen—Key-llation, a cycle in formation of a Florida-type key, or small island. That will be on Nov. 12, and the committee fools that this year they will avoid the Thanksgiving night date used twice in the past. Even though Stan Midgely, one of the most entertaining of leclurors is available, there was some opposition voiced to the committee about using the holiday. December ts also avoided by both St. Louis and Alton groups, so there will be no show then. Jan. 14 will roll around however, and bring Curtis Nagel with a show on the Rhineland. That was selected by audience vote last season, as a promising film. On Feb. U5, Deane Dickason will arrive, bringing his views of Hong-Kong, "Peephole in (he Bamboo Curtain," a timely adventure. Winding up the series will be Herbert Knapp, and his beautiful Mediterranean Isles on March 25. Tickets can be arranged for now at either the YMCA or YWCA by merely addressing an envelope to the Travel and Adventur^ Series, and enclosing a chock for $6 for a family pass. 32 Fifth-Cradei'K from Irving School at Capital Thirty-two fifth-grade students of Irving School, Wednesday, went hy bus on a visit to Springfield and New Salem.
