A man walked into a clothing store, and asked to see some heavy boots. He chose the heaviest and most durable. He then asked for those heavier insoles that preserve warmth, and also made a selection of heavy wool socks. He topped it off by buying a pair of heavy type overshoes. He asked if he might put them on and wear them out, and the clerk said yes. He paid for them with a WPA chock, and said ho was working on the WPA lake drainage project at Spirit Lake. After putting on the entire group of purchases he stood up, rocked back and forth on his feet testing them, and then said, "Now I'll be. warm enough to stand around like the rest of the guys." * * * * Driving a car in snow has not been taught to enough people. Too many start the motor racing and spin the back wheels in a frenzy to get under way. As they slip along the ice or snow and hit a strip of bare paving the car jumps like a scared jack-rabbit, jerking the heads of all occupants. Some have the mistaken notion that the faster the back wheels go the quicker they'll get started. The truth is that the slower the back wheels go in starting the faster the car moves out. The wheel does not slip. Too much power spins the wheel, and it makes no progress. When the car comes to a stop in a snow bank, the proper method of driving is to case the car in reverse slowly, and rock it ahead and back till a little trough is formed for the wheels, and as the trough is lengthened by the continual ahead and back motion more and more inertia is accumulated, and soon the car moves out, if power and motor speed Is hold down. Spinning UlP hack wheel is a waste of time and only digs the car deeper into the snow. A driver with buck wheels in chains started from the Advance office Saturday in a jump that took the car nearly off the ground. * * * * Only throe (liiys till Christmas.

Too many In the old days chose to play the fiddle when they should be barking into a cornet or trombone. There wore some puffing away at a sax who should have been beating a drum, etc. The tendency is also away from an effort to make every piano beginner a Paderewski, and Beethoven and Bach, etc., etc., are foisted only on those who enjoy such music. Few children have the temperament or capacity to enjoy classics. It's now permissible to play jazz No longei do orchestras perspire through the murder of a classic and individually beam proudly when the group fnishes together. This lets more enjoy music. Some children of the past who were forced by teaching 1 - then to play meaningless ' - feeling of frustration. It's belter to have many appreciate a little music than a few appreciate great music.

One by one they fall under the incident. Somebody in command is to have to commit honorable suicide to wipe out the stain. Loud-mouths in American politics are shouting at each other, but on the whole the incident passed with surprisingly little public sentiment. It is believed that the real sentiment will be felt commercially by Japan, for there is a well- developed buying strike against Japanese goods given new and real impetus by the incident. It is believed that this commercial aspect of the situation is much more serious for Japan than any possibility of armed action. * * * * Not much question in the mind of anyone, not even a democrat, of the futility of calling the recent special session of congress. * * * * Now the G. 0.

Roland falls n love with Jane Wyatt, but the love of Margo, the only person in bnangri-La dissatisfied with existence in this land of honey, only spurs the younger brother on in attempts to escape. After the High Lama dies, Margo and John Howard bribe the porters (guides), and finally induce Coleman to accompany them, as they begin a long trek back to civilization through trackless enow fields. When the guides are killed by an avalanche nnd Margo reverts to her real age and dies, the younger brother commits suicide, and Roland battles his way back alone. This is a hazy outline of a pcture which it takes two hours to screen. There are serious defects in the production, notwithstanding 1 the fine acting and the beautiful photography. In the first place, Lost Horizon is much too long. I saw it first as a road show in Chicago, but there It was divided Into acts, which allowed pause to walk into the foyer and smoke. As a continuous performance it becomes tiresome. In the second place, it is too noisy. The beginning, the scenes of bandit uprising in Baskul, are a continual pandemonium, an incessant tumult of explosions, gun-fire, mo- .tor exhausts. The suspense, also, is too sustained. The journey of the kid- naped five, under the menacing revolver of the pilot, is too long,'and the final escape of the luckless trio, after a long show, is likewise too prolonged for an almost wrecked audience. There is much, much too much, detail, there are too many minute situations. The whole effect is one of over-eating. Taken piece-meal, it is a marvelous production; taken at a sitting it is satiety to the point of exhaustion. The set used in Lost Horizon is probably the most lavish and artistic ever constructed for any picture. Many shots are gems of photographic art. There is just too much beauty, too much of everything. And isn't that the trouble with our movies? In an attempt to produce super-features, effects, situations, atmosphere are so massed as to bewilder the human brain. With an almost unlimited scope, the producers and directors of our movies are forever tempted to "shoot the works" in super-coloB- sal productions which, taken in products, Including a colt and a dairvmen ton of hay.
