Aren't there moments in the life of every cinemaddict when he (or she) longs to relax and watcl a series of expertly paced song ami-dance routines intersperset i with comedy sketches, without even Itl: with disappointing omissions. To begin with, tihe haunting melodies which made the stage presentation such a Joy to music lovers, have been abbreviated and condensed till they are but a skeleton o£ the original. Then, too, in place of the naive ilmmor of the stage production (notably in the taxi-scene) a great deal of rather broad comedy has been entrusted 'o Charles Butterworth, who, though as usual, ihe dispenses it capably, does it with- a too studied air. most ibodily from the stage of th Apollo theater in New York City for screen consumption, with girls dances ami skits intact. It is tihe first musical show to give the customer just what it advertises. We have been fooled a long time ir these so-called musical comedies in which we have had to sit am suffer for endless reels of 'brain- tormenting agony, in order finally to see ten minutes of gorgeous super-spectacle.

The ladies of the ensemble are uniformly voluptuous, and ten especially imported Broadway show girls muscle into the Hollywood 'beauty racket with conspicuous success. There are only two minor draw- tacks to the cinema Scandals: there is too much of George White himself (a doubtful actor at best) and the grand finale is a bit weak 'But Avhy dwell on trifles when there are essentials to discuss? The all-important fact remains that this is one of the first successful Broadway revues transferred to the screen in all its raucous, ribald, entirety, and it comes as a welcome relief after the emaciated, feeble gestures which movie producers have ibeen cramming' down our throats for almost a year. In a purely personal vein we offer one example of satire which appealed strongly to our inverted sense of humor—the baby carriage scene, photographed from a birds- eye view in the same manner as many sequences in Footligiht Parade. We could never appreciate the beauty of a chorus girl perched up, like a crow, 50 feet albove the stage, where the movie directors' have Ibeen setting, us, and we are Fenton Farmer is Out for Place On the County Board Paul Nemitz, '55, who came from ermany 40 years ago and has ever ince lived in iFenton township, is a andidate for the republican nom- nation for supervisor in the (Fourth district, now represented by Charles Morris. There are six townships in the district: Lotts Creek, Fenton, Seneca, Swea, Greenwood, and iBurt.

Wittenburg, pastor of the Lu Verne Lutheran church, officiating. Mrs. Arthur Hanselmann, sister- in-law of the ibride, was maid of honor, and Arthur Hanselmanii, the bride's 'brother, was best man. Norma Jean, the bride's sister, was flower girl, and Eugene Baessler was ring-bearer. Teacher Koch played the wedding march while the bridal party descended an open stairway into the living room and took places in the presence of immediate family and close friends. A double-ring ceremony was performed. Dorothy iHanselmann, Chicago, sister of the bride, and Mr. Koch sang Take Thou My Hand and Lead Me. The bride's dress was a silk crepe suit of porcelain .blue with silver fur, and the accessories were in gray. (Her flowers were a bou- ctuet of tea roses and .sweet peas. Mrs. Arthur IHanselmann was attired in a silk crepe suit of ocean .blue with gi'ay fur, and she wore a corsage of roses and carnations. The flower girl wore a coral beige georgette gown, and the ring- bearer a white linen .suit. After the ceremony and congratulations a two-course candlelight wedding dinner was served, the centerpiece at table being a large wedding cake. Mixed flowers also adorned the talble. Evelyn Jonte and Evelyn Bush served. Mrs^ Wittenburg was among persons in attendance. The new Mrs. Furstenau Is the eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Hanselmann, and most of iher life has been spent in the iLu Verne community. Mr. Furstenau is the son of Mrs. Louise Furstenau, Gtm- eseo. After a few days here the newlyweds went to Geneseo, where Mr. Furstenau is (bookkeeper for the J. J.,Guild & Son elevator company.

Many of the most delicious bits of humor were lost on members of the first-night audience, but, we opine, more real faonest-to-goodness belly-laughs will be heard at subsequent ^performances.
