“COVERED WAGON DAYS”
IS OFFERED AT BIJOl'
Adventure and thrills, typical of
the covered wagon days from
which the film takes its name,
are brought to the Bijou screen
where Republic’s “Covered Wagon
Days” opens today for a two-days
run.
The scene is laid i nthe colorful
era of United States history fol
lowing the Civil War. Silver be
comes a drug on the market, and
in order to stabilize its value and
save the silver states from panic,
President Rutherford B. Hayes
signs the famous Bland-Allison bill,
which establishes a minimum
price of one dollar and twenty
nine cents per ounce for silver
at the Federal mints.
The current chapter of “Flash
Gordon Conquers The Universe”,
and a comedy “Blamed for a
Blonde”, are also on the pro
gram. 3
“DANGER ON WHEELS” MARKS
ROYAL’S PROGRAM TODAY
Andy Devine is a comic rarity.
He has no ambitions to be any
thing but himself.
From the beginning of time
there have been few top-notchers
in the laugh-making business who
have not expressed a desire to
cast off the raiment of the buffoon
and become a Hamlet or Pagliacci
—if only for a day. Some have
even had the courage to try it,
with varying degrees of success.
But Andy Devine, who co-stars
with Richard Arlen in Universal’s
'Danger on Wheels.” at the Royal
heatre, is going to “stay in his
own back yard.”
The rotund screen comedian dis
covered he was not cut out for
things dramatic in the early days
of his film career. Cast as a villain
in several pictures, he proved far
from convincing. Given a comedy
role in “The Spirit of Notre
Dame,” he turned out to be the
hit of the picture and was given
a long-term contract by Universal.
The latest chapter of “The Shad
ow,” newest news, and “Molly
Cures a Horse'’ complete the
show. 3
“EDISON, THE MAN” IS
OFFERED AT CAROLINA
Bringing American filmgoers
another amazing proof that lives
of great men are inspirational,
dramatic, human and entertaining,
“Edison, the Man” began a three
day run at the Carolina Theatre
yesterday.
Here is a real-life picture that
is as true as a document yet as
exciting as a fictionists dream. It
will thrill all who see it and remain
in their minds for years to come.
Spencer Tracy has always been
described as “superb” in every
performance. It is difficult to pic
ture him as topping his past amaz
ing performances, yet, as Thomas
Edison, he does. His portrayal is
HOSPITALPROGRAM;
PASSED BY SENATE!
Legislation Provides For Six- ;
Year, $60,000,000 Con
struction Plan
WASHINGTON. May 30—UP)—The
senate passed and sent to the house
today legislation to provide a six
year, $60,000,000 program of fed
eral-state-local hospital construc
tion.
Designed to increase hospital fa
cilities primarily in rural and “eco
nomically depressed areas,” the
bill contemplates federal construc
tion of hospitals to be leased to
states or communities and also
grants for state and local construc
tion.
Senator Murray (D-Mont.l, in
charge of the bill on the senate
floor, said it would be a “valuable
experiment” which would increase
existing facilities by an estimated
25,000 or 30,000 hospital beds.
The bill was approved on a voice
vote without objection.
First recommended in a mess
as human as your next door
neighbor and as genuine as though
he himself had lived the remark
able events of the film.
Supporting the star in this pic
ture are players who give out
standing performances, among
them Rita Johnson, Lynne Over
man, Charles Coburn, Gene Lock
hart, Henry Travers and Felix
Bressart. The picture has been
beautifully directed by Clarence
Brown and expertly produced by
John W. Considine, Jr. 3
,ge by President Roosevelt to con
fess, the measure would author
ze a $10,000,000 appropriation for
he year ending July 1. 1941.
During each of the five years
ollowing $10,000,000 more would be
uithorized for grants to states and
ocalities for construction and
raining of personnel. These grants
lould not exceed 90 per cent nor
3e less than 25 per cent of the con
struction cost exclusive of the cost

“balancing” process. It’s balanced for peak performance in all
gears, at all speeds—balanced to cut the cost of Stop-and-Go.

* RPR (Road-Performance Rating) is the true measure
M m Mm m
of a mei s performance in your car
RPR tests with flying colors. Week after week
they have proved themselves by an amazing per
formance record in stock cars of different makes
— each has shown, in its price class, the highest
RPR in Shell history: Starting. Warming up. Ac
celerating. On the straightaway at high speed.
“Loafing.” Hill climbing. In heaviest Stop-and-Go
traffic. In mileage tests. In “anti-knock” tests.
Such a high RPR is the result of Shell’s “Bal
ancing” process. No one performance quality is
emphasized at the expense of another.
Try out the new high RPR Super-Shell or Shell
Premium in your car—you be the judge!
IT’S not what a gasoline does in the laboratory
but what it does in your car that counts.

show faulty behavior under road conditions. Shell
