YOU CAN'T HAVE EVERYTHING , In addition to being a smart, tuneful, muslcale of the A class, this picture is important on several It has majority ap- it voices popular minor- counts, peal, because philosophy. How many 'tlmes^'from childhood to age, have you heard the admonition, "You can't have everything"? When you asked for four first ice cream cone, in the dim, misty lanes of the past, thai rebuke was dished out, and now when you mourn the Inability to bring some "pipe-dream" to reality, it Is repeated from all sides in a veritable chorus. The picture Is also important to me because it establishes Alice Faye as my No. 1 favorite aclress of the screen. She isn't as good- ooking as Myrna Loy, nor does she possess Myrna's dramatic abil- ty, but she registers heavily with ne anyhow. After all, is there any angib e reason why we just natur- i y like some people and dislike others? Perhaps it's for a like Indefinite reason that I like Alice v aye—the slight droop nouth, the far-away look .„ „„, yes, the naughty little twist of or lithesome body.

GREENBERG Auto Supply Phone 118 When I saw Gypsy Rose Lee-in 10 Follies last winter I said she ouldn t act for "sour apples" and er initial screen appearance in us production convinces me lhat . was right. She wraps her lovely body (it was as a "stripper" in burlesque that she made her bid for fame) in several changes of expensive evening wraps) but her dramatic punches are confined to such innocuous bromides as "I'll cut your heart out and stuff it like contentment and happiness to Wang. His land is his life. This love for land and dependence upon it is Ihe background of the storj and sifts into the various scenes The story opens on Wang's wedding day, when he goes to the Great House to wed 0-lan (Luise Rainer), a slave whom he has never seen. The whole picture hinges on the character of 0-lan. Her role to those around her is one of abnegation, but underneath is a firm resolute soul. Enough praise cannot be given Lulse Rainer for her splendid characterization. Her facial expression remains unchanged during the picture, but to the audience she conveys her every emotion and desire. Only occasionally does she register joy or pleasure. One of Ihese time is/in the scene where she brings her first born (a son) lo the Great .House to see the Ancient One. At another time she gazes longingly al two pearls in her hand—"Not to wear, .for I am too plain—but to look at when I am alone." The outstanding scenes in the story are the storm during which her flrsl child is born; the scene where she kills her friend, the water buffalo, during a famine; Ihe looling of a rich merchant's house; all of which lead up to the scenes in a locust ,, ,» when EX-IRVINGTON FARMER HANGS SELF IN BARN Fred Andrews Victim of Temporary Case of Unbalance.

The movie ends with Wang- back from the Great House, seared by his passion for Lotus, the singsong girl, repentent for this interlude by the side of the dying 0- lan, saying, "You are the One— you are the good earth."—I. K. c. REMI.HANDT— It is unfortunate that the smokescreen of publicity and enthusiasm over The Good Earth at the New tall almost obscured the superb characterization of Rembrandt given by Charles Laughton at the Iowa.

The upper part of the counters, known us cages, were amov- ed, and glass a half inch thick now encloses the cages. The change helps the appearance of the bank making it seem more roomy, and the glass enables window clerks to see customers better. The glass cage is now only a foot higher than the counter, but an extension over the counter prevents thieves trom reaching over the top The new arrangement also provides (in- other window at the rear of Die lobby.
