1 SUNDAY, JULY 19, 1931 DECATUR HERALD 20 DECATUR HERALD COLUMBIA'S FIRST TELEVISION PROGRAM TO BE ON TUESDAY : ? r Decatur Mans Aspirations in Field of Magical Art Terminated Suddenly by Explosion of Machine Gun Bullet Lionel Martelle, Once on Road to International Fame as Illusionist To the us of machine guns and poisonous gasses during the World war may be attributed the fact that there i3 in Decatur a man who puts in his time showing people how to take dust out of carpets, instead of going about the country showing people how to take rabbits out of silk hats. Lionel Martelle. sales manager of carpet sweepers for the Illinois Power & Light Corpn., here, who at one time had considerable prominence as a man who could make two billiard balls appear where before there was but one, now devotes his time to the less romantic but also less nerve wracking enterprise of making two sales appear where before there seemed likelihood of being none. On Stage at Six Beginning his stage career in magical productions at the age of six. Martelle during the course of the next 20 years developed such deftness in his art that he became well known to audiences throughout Europe and America. Mr. Martelle was born In Paris, his father operated a por trait studio. His father was inter ested in magic in an amateur way and was well acquainted with La-favptte. an illusionist world prom inent some 25 years ago. In one of his acts Lafayette produced Dy magic" a live teddy bear, who continued the act by leading the orchestra through a number. Martelle, at the age of six, was drafted to be the bear. As he grew older, he continued to work with Lafayette, and developed not only a deep-seated interest in magic, but also, under the great master s tutelage, both extensive knowledge of and polished deftness in the use of illusion. The tragic death of Lafayette In 1908 suddenly put Martelle out into the world to shift for himself. It was in the Empire theater, Edinburgh, during the production of a big stage illusion to illustrate the -1812 Overture" that the scenery caught fire from an electric circuit. Lafayette was trapped and burned to death. Invented Illusion "Oddly enough, when the theater was rebuilt, its opening performance in 1923 featured a magician, who used an illusion similar to that used by Lafayette," recalls Martelle. "I suppose that was to show that the management had confidence the new theater was fireproof." Completing his education in Eton college, England. Mr. Martelle returned to the stage, developing a company of his own. For some time he travelled through Europe, then in 1910 came to the United States. For a time he worked with illusionists in this country: Houdinl, Blackstone and others, then he formed a new company of his own and toured this country for several years on theater, and chautauqua circuits. Specializing in no one form of magic, he was able to bring out something new each season. It was his practise to devote part of his program to the usual sleights, humorous tricks nd comparatively simple manipulations, then close with one or more impressive presentations. One season he featured a "mental telepathy" act, in which a young woman seated at a piano would play any number named to Martelle by any person in the audience. Another season he featured a complicated illusion, developed and patented by himself. In this illusion, Martelle appeared at the front of the stage, bare except for the presence of two "Fifth avenue" traffic control shanties mounted six feet above the floor on four legs, the towers six feet apart and each standing eight feet forward of the backdrop, on which was painted a view of Fifth avenue. New York. At a signal from Martelle, there would appear on the stage a man dressed as a policeman and another in the guise of a burglar. Lots of Work Martelle would send the burglar into the shanty on one control tower, the policeman into the other, then blow a whistle and the doors cf the two shanties would close as if by magic. Instantly Martelle would blow his whistle again, and the doors would reopen, revealing the shanty the policeman had occupied now to be empty; the burglar would have vanished, and seated in the shanty the burglar had occupied would be the policeman, wearing the clothes that an instant before had been worn by the burglar. Another blast of Martelle's whistle and the two towers would collapse, throwing the two shanties together in the middle of the stage. Instantly the two shanties would become Joined and would be transformed Into a replica of a Fifth avenue bus, which calmly would roll off the stage. "It took a lot of work to evolve that effect." Mr. Martelle recalled. "And it took a lot more work to stage it Keeping everything: Just right, so there could be no possibility of a hitch required a lot of attention and Involved considerable more hard work than the simple whistle blowing done for the benefit of the audience." At the outbreak of the World war. Mr. Martelle chanced to be on a theatrical tour in Canada. Immediately -celling his tour, he enlisted as a private and was assign- Lionel Martelle UNTIL wound3 received in the World war prevented continuing such work, Mr. Martelle presented illusions and magical curiosities on theatrical and chautauqua circuits in Europe and America. ed to the famous Princess Pat regiment, which was among the shock troops of the British army. Victim of Gas "We took practically no time for training. Just three weeks after enlisting I was sent over the top for the first time, but it wa3 four years before I received a wound serious enough to put me out of service." He was, however, a victim of the first gas barrage laid by the Germans. "One day we saw a smoke barrage rolling toward us over No Man's Land. This was the first thing of its kind we had seen, but we suspected its purpose. It was a cloud of dark gray, oily looking smoke, that clung to the ground and rolled toward us across an even front. It was thick enough to hide an army, and we suspected that under Its cover the enemy would charge our trench. We wet our handkerchiefs, tied them over our noses and mouths, and stood our ground. The expected attack failed to come, and we concluded that either the enemy had lacked masks that would enable them to walk in the smoke, or else that it merely had been an experiment that would be put to practisal use later. "Several days later we saw a similar cloud coming toward us, and made the same preparations to meet it. Instead of smoke, this barrage was gas, and before we comprehended the situation, thousands were dead and dying." Martelle in this attack received effects that put him out of service for months and injuries that he will carry throughout life. Gave Up Career Four years from the day he enlisted, he was wounded below the left knee by an explosive machine gun bullet. His Injury was so serious that he remained in a hospital until four years after the war had ended. Returning to this country after recovering sufficiently to be discharged, Martelle did not immediately return to his art. For a year he served in the Universal studios, Hollywood, as cameraman. Finally he again returned to the stage, but found that his wartime Injuries had left him unable to withstand the exhausting demands of constant travel, or the nervous strain of stage work. With considerable regret, he determined to give up the work he had taken up so enthusiastically in his youth, and determined upon a living in which his health would be less In Jeopardy. Notwithstanding his forced separation from it. however. Martelle continues to hold a lively Interest in magic, and as much for his own amusement as for that of those before whom he appears, he frequently performs for groups of friends or clubs of business associates.

Marlon Nixon, who plays opposite Eddie Quillan in RKO Pathe's "Sweepstakes", danced to Los Angeles in an act on the Pantages circuit SA40 v, JftiH NEW SCHOOL BIDS MAY BE THROWN OUT Attorneys Seek Interpretation of New Law Before Letting Job MIGHT RAISE COST Whether the fact that bids on the new Woodrow Wilson Junior High school and Centennial school addition were called before July 1 will release the school board from observance of a new law, was being discussed Saturday by members of the board, architects and contractors. The new law requires that speci fications for public works must include a wage scale, and that con tractors in submitting bids must include this scale which is to be the one prevailing in the community at the time. It appears, however, that the law contains a provision stating that it does not apply to contracts let or Invitations for bids issued before July 1, 1931. B. S. Brooks of Brooks, Bramhall and Dague, architects who drew the plans, said that specifications for both buildings were in the hands of most of the contractors before July 1, as plans had been formally approved and date for opening of bids set in a school board meeting on the night of June 24. Investigates Law Robert P. Vail, attorney for the school board, said that he could not give an opinion as to whether the law in question applied to school building contracts until he makes further investigation early next week. "A complete copy of the law in the final form as passed by the legislature did not reach me until nearly noon Saturday, and there are some points on which I must obtain additional information from Springfield before giving an opinion," he said. Mr. Vail said he had advised Carl Weilepp, president of the school board, to defer letting the contracts until he is prepared to submit an opinion. The school board had planned to meet early this week and either let the contracts or decide to give the two low bidders an opportunity to re-submit estimates, a privilege reserved by the board in asking for bids. However, should the new law apply to the letting of these contracts, it will be necessary to readvertise for bids from all contractors as all proceedings to date will be void. Would Raise Costs Both Mr. Brooks and C. M. Neeld, one of the low bidders on the original specifications voiced the opinion that inclusion of a specified wage scale in the bids and subsequent contract would compel contractors to raise their bids if they are to bid again on this basis. State's Attorney John VV. Evans said he had not studied the law carefully as yet but that he questioned whether a law of this kind would be upheld by the courts because its provisions interfere with the right of contract Whether this proves to be the case ultimately or not, compliance with the law is necessary pending, the decision of the higher courts. ATTENTION GIVEN TO COSTUMES' COLORS IN BLACK, WHITE FILMS The proper coloring of sets and costumes is one of the most im portant parts of the technical side of motion picture making, despite the fact that the colors used never appear on the screen. Color is carefully studied by the set designers and costume depart ment as well as by the director and the actors. Of first importance In selecting a color scheme is understanding the effect of various colors on the moods of the players. A comedy sequence is playing in a gaily col ored set; a heavy dramatic se quence on a somberly tinted stage. Although photography reduces colors to charcoal shades on the screen, settings are painted natural colors because of the psychological effect on the players. Experiments have been made in painting sets in shades of grey, but the perform ances in such scenes have invariably been mediocre. Costumes also are selected for their mental reactions. A red evening gown which will photograph the same as a black gown, often is used because of its exhilirating ef fect KING BAGG0T WILL RETURN TO PICTURES King Baggot, ex-leading man for Mary Pickford and later a star in the old Biograph days, returns to the screen after a prolonged ab sence in a role In "Sweepstakes," Eddie Quillan's latest picture which Al Rogell Is directing. Baggot, who was also a director of silent films at one time, will be seen as a race horse trainer in this RKQ Pathe turf opus. Others in the cast are James Gleason, Marion Nixon, Lew Cody, Frederic Burton, Lillian Leighton and others. THREE YEARS IN ROLE Sam Hardy, supporting Ruth Chatterton in "The Magnificent Lie", played one role, opposite Le-nore Ulrich in "Kiki", for three solid years on Broadway. Columbia to Present First Television Program with Sound on Chain Tuesday With its inaugural program at. 8:45 o'clock Tuesday evening, the Columbia Broadcasting system's experimental television station in New York, Station W2XAB, marks the entry of chain systems operating on a national scale into the television broadcasting field. .

York as Boston, Hartford, Baltimore, Camden, Schenectady and Philadelphia. Although sight transmission of the premiere program will be limited geophaphically to a comparaatively small section along the Eastern seaboard, the sound transmission wit be carried to most of the 85 outlets of the Columbia system.

CHINCH BUGS IN SWARMS MAKE HAVOCJN CORN No Way to Estimate Amount of Damage Done by Pests SOME FIELDS STRIPPED Macon county farmers Saturday looked forward to showers that would be beneficial to corn and other crops, but those In the chinch bug sections have abandoned all hope that rains can now retard insect damage. Swarms of the bugs are now flying, and when they reach that stage there Is nothing that will retard the damage they do. Cannot Estimate Damage There are a few parts i of the county in which they will reduce the corn crop by 50 per cent., it is believed. There are many other parts of the county that are free of the insects, and it is thought that the total damage in the county will be a small percentage of the entire crop. There Is no basis for any accurate survey of what the damage may amount to and It is varyingly estimated at from 2 to 3 per cent to as high as 10 per cent. Corn in some parts of the county was showing need of showers Saturday, and in others there appeared no serious lack of moisture. Rainfall has been spotted over the county in the last several weeks, some sections receiving three or four times as much as others. In all sections, however, there has been insufficient moisture for pastures, and they are very short. Rains will freshen them temporarily, but it is unlikely that they will be brought to good condition.

STAKE IS LARGE (By United Prut.)

He forcibly re minds Europe that the real start for world recovery lies In cutting down arms expenditures. The President's move is well timed.

To obtain such pictures from the air, Howard Hughes sent his monoplane and a special crew along. Pictures are to be in "multicolor," a new process controlled by Hughes, youthful Texas millionaire who produced "Hell's Angels" and "The Front Page". Commander MacMillan plans to fly far into Baffin land and other previously unexplored regions of the Arctic to obtain photographic material. In addition to his scientific exploration, the commander will search for evidence of the wrecked plane of Nungesser and Coll, French airmen believed to have perished in the arctic. On a previous expedition MacMillan was told by Eskimos that a plane believed to have been that of Nungesser and Coll had flown over Baffin Land, apparently in distress.
