Since they Have been working on this age in history, they are particularly interested in the play. Members are making projects of various kinds; several are dress ing- • Elizabethan dolls to illustrate styles of dress; some are lllustrat ing scenes from the play with original drawings; small models of Elizabethan theaters are being built; still other pupils are reading books dealing 'with the period or written by authors contemporary with Shakspeare. Two pencil studies of Shalispeare have been handed In and occupy the bulletin board HURT WHEN CAR IS DITGHED only the cast of charade personal reaction to the tnlkie after seeing a preview of it Saturday. If you still have regrets after!reading this, heaven help you! June Moon with Jack Oakie and a glorious trio of lovely maidens (Frances Dee, Wynne Gibson, and June MacCIoy) Is the essence of a misspent evening, if you know what I mean. It portrays graphically enough, the experiences of a small- town song writer who tries to crash the "music racket" In ' New York City, and if the picture is a true portrayal of his plight, we should say the poor farmers In Iowa are sitting in a bed of roses. It is just one headache after another, culminating with a big hangover for moat of the audience. Jack ought to follow Bulek's sagfi advice and picture. Perhaps our disappointment is due in part to having heard only snatches of the song hit, June Moon, for which our hero I'.in the story) wrote the words. It seems to be a tuneful little ditty, if someone had taken the trouble to sing it through in approved musical comedy style. Then, strangely enough, the two men who play the minor parts carry off the honors for stellar performances. The crowning defect of the play is the overpowering dumbness of Jack Oakie; after a mild hit as a boob in a movie, he multiplies the dose till he portrays here a character- who Is positively fantastic. A hick as green as this bird wouldn't get out of the Pennsylvania station without having his pockets picked, to say nothing of being kicked- out of the song writers' union before he could get his foot Into the door. And while we are out with the proverbial hammer, we might as well register a well deserved com- who give fantastic story a touch You feel somehow, that with a troupe of ham-actors, and finally culminating in a melodramatic, fighting finish that you gasping tor air; , An excellent supporting cast gives the rather of reality. notwithstanding the absurdity of •the situation the thing MIGHT happen, and there is enough (and what is more important, not too much) comedy in the play which the wandering troupe of actors put on for the benefit of the bored ranch guests to carry the picture through to a successful finish. And what a finish! All the ear-marks of the old Diamond Dick yellowbacks — the runaway car (it used to be a team), the leaping hero, the thundering train, the wreck, and the recovering hero cradled in the beautiful heroine's arms for the final fade-out. The lovely June Collyer 'is more beautiful -than ever, although her part gives her little opportunity for displaying any of the ability, which we' trust she possesses. Here, then, was a perfect Mothers' day show in contrast to the rather sexy June Moon, 'which, through the watchful efforts of Manager Rice? you, his patrons, were, not privileged to see, and for which you have every reason in the world-, to feel thankful. Inn the. entire production does Miss Cbatterton riso to even near-dramatic heights; she goes through her linos with a patient weariness which scorns to say, "Well, I'm glad that's over!" i There seems to be considerable difference of opinion over Paul Iviikas; he Is a near-idol with many of the fans, but he falls far below his previous • performance (The Right to Love) in this show. Paul Cavanaugh also turns in a mediocre Job of acting, but this may also be leaves . excused on the ground that the star did not have her heart in her work and was therefore unable to get the up best out Unfaithful of Is her subordinates, a bitter disappointment to admirers of Ruth Chatterton, because she is an actress of great ability and should be given every opportunity to display her talents. So we'll just charge this up to profit and loss—and, goodness knows, there haven't been many profits this year. raqon visitors at i Arndorfer's. lenmeyer spent Mr, and Saturday with his mother, Mrs. Rosenmeyer, and sister, -tt Steussy. * dore Elsenbarth wqsiabed and Sunday with* stoifiach She \yas reported Improv- ffty Tuesday. j Bisenbarth, gunday afternoon with her E.

The Addressograph system, the mimeographing machine, the .linotypes, the presses, and the folding ,:machirie were the chief .objects of Interest. This practical'lesson made theoretical study much more interesting. The class to grateful to the Messrs. Dewel and the shop force for the courtesy.-.

En route home in the Weir car, a Chevrolet, they ran off the road and were upset. Erwin had a cord severed In one arm, Harold suffered a muscle gash which required eight clamps to close, Mrs. Grippen suffered a cut above one eye, and Mrs. Weir was badly bruised. Mrs. Kuecker suffered only a few scratches, ,and Mr. Weir was unhurt. A car from Emmetsburg picked them up and took them to-a West Bend doctor and they were then brought home. The car was badly wrecked. . characters by their real instead of sfage, names. We don't know (and have no, way of finding out) which one of the trio of comely maidens mentioned above plays what part. In this case all three turn In creditable performances, which is fortunate. We are just mildly curious to know which is which, however. .Will producers of moving pictures kindly give a complete cast ture talkies? of characters In We thank you! fu- D I UDE RANCH, which substituted for June Moon In the, ninth Inning, with two out, bases full, and the score tied, was a distinct "hit." It Is the best thing our Jack (Oakie) has ever done. Here, at least, is the flavor of originality; A FTER THE RIGHT TO LOVE and Sarah and Son, Unfaithful, with the talented Ruth Chatterton, is pretty fiat; in fact, we might go farther and say it is the poorest thing she ever did. Is the moving picture industry, one of our major arts, to be prostituted at the shrine of mass production to the extent that a star must make a certain number of pictures, whether they are good or no? In Unfaithful, Miss Chatterton has been handed an extremely inadequate plot and slipshod direction; but, artist that she is, she seems to sense" this and gives, in turn, a second-rate ' performance. Critics have commented on the fact that this is her last picture for Paramount and that departing stars are always given a bad break when they leave a company We are not prepared to certify this statement. Nor are we going into details' of this plot. It follows the regular pattern of domestic triangle dramas, with stupid dialog and utterly Idiotic situations. Witness the Countess shooting craps with two sailors in a drawing room filled with her friends; it Is so improbable as to be positively ridiculous.

Manager Rice informs us that the last gangster picture of 1931 has been made, which is about the best news we have heard since the legislature adjourned. ,UEEN HIGH, TAKEN from the stage Tsuccess, A Pair of Sixes, is capital entertainment, if farce is what you are looking for to drive dull care away.
