Mrs. Jack Osborne; El Paso, I, and Clarence Schrader, New xico, arrived Wednesday for ten MAJT OF CONQUEST— This biographical sketch of the mad Sam Houston's life continues the vogue for American historical folk-lore, but it tugs just a little top ardently at the apron-strings of 'democracy and moralizing to be a Valuable contribution to the cinema historical society. There is a distinct appeal to modern times and conditions, an unforgivable early times, dictatorship, whereas, If my history serves me rightly, it was tyrants In "them far-off, early days." Th^re Is another modern reference which iff much more flagrant, but for the life .of me I cannot now recall/It. ,„'! jpUed It down only on t;he,.uncertain jjad of > memory, a 'veh'icle-wh'ictijiBA not, u gervini ; me theseV days, -and when' I came? out of the theater, I was disgusted, and somewhat taken aback, to find that it had flown us completely as a pigeon darts through a barn door. The tempestuous life of Sam about Alice that you can call SA or anything else you like, but she's ;ot it Alice sings and dances (in her Houston could certainly make a better picture than Republic has portrayed it in Man of Conquest But the final battle scenfe is the most realistic and dramatic I have ever; seen flashed across a silver screen. Horses and men plunge recklessly to the ground, huge explosives fairly split the earth as men are apparently lifted in the air. The charge by Houston continues to the stirring cry of "Remember the Alamo! On and on they go as cannon thunder and bullets rain about them. It's a great sequence but the rest of the picture lacks warmth and depth, essential' 'characteristics of all biography. There are fashion) delightfully, and while icr big number, My Man, may lack :he poignancy of that famous ballad from the lips of Fanny Brlce, our little song-T>lugger puts It ovar with genuine heart-appeal. Al Jolson, staging a rather remarkable comeback, 'goes through his most celebrated repertoire of Mammy songs with a clear, silvery voice, though Al is 52 now. Were it not Ifor the melodramatic theme of Rose of Washington Square, one could wish for nothing' better 'than ; Alice's . and Al's singing., 'But .(perhapsx others than I dld<not>(i^d-"thejilX<»n'gr}ik.iy. of plot and 'general •''theme;; so; disconcerting' to their pleasure in the picture. . In any event Rose of Washington Square was a swell show. But wait till you see The Life of Mr. and Mrs. Vernon Castle. HOTEL IMPERIAL— • This picture might well have been' named Much Ado About Nothing, Insofar as plot is concerned; •for though photographed with a delicate touch of eerie artistry, directed with due regard to suspense and dramatic climax, and portrayed by a group of capable and convincing actors and actresses^ Hotel Imperial Is as barren of plo as a desert of water. Even so, it is an entertaining picture ol the World war, with a setting on the Austrian-Russian border. A certain Isa Miranda, newcom er to the screen so far as I am concerned, reminds one pi Garbo Two Wesleyans are Graduates at Britt Wesley, May 29 — June, third daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. L.

ROSE OF WASHINGTON SQUARE This picture was a keen disappointment to me, partly, I judge, from the fact that I had just seen The Life of Mr. and Mrs. Verrion Castle, which I consider one of the finest things of the year, partly because of the unattractive character of Tyronne Power, who certainly got a dirty deal in this instance.

Or is it? the reunion is a most unhappy TT^mZIZZ^I one. Tyronne is shown as a thoroughly weak and unscrupulous bond salesman; which would have been all right In drama, *but certainly is completely out of tune in a musicomedy like this. It might suffice if we could apply the sweet-sour cooking principle to the movies, but that, sadly enough, doesn't seem to work out, and the net result is that the picture lacks warmth, sympathy, that human quality called in German, "gemuetlichkeit."
