“WAGON TRAIN’* MARKS
BIJOU THEATRE BILL
A stalwart, handsome youth,
Tim Holt wins his stellar spurs
in “Wagon Train,” which is play
ing at the Bijou Theatre today.
Son of Jack Holt. Tim practically
leaps into his famed parent’s sad
dle, and performs splendidly,
charging his characterization with
crack horsemanship, six-gun ad
venture and swift-paced fistic bat
tles, just as if he were living the
life of hero Zack Sibley.
Liberally crammed with unique
plot wrinkles which move the
drama at lightning speed, “Wagon
Train” has dynamic young Zack
Sibley as the owner of r. freighter
caravan of six covered wagons,
such as used to haul provisions
to isolated communities in 1870
America. While Zack is operating
his business as peacefully as pos
sible—occasionally interrupted by
blood-thirsty Comanches and ma
rauding road agents—a wily ex
gunman plans to have Zack slain
in order to gain control of the
transportation, which would in
turn give him a monopoly over
food prices.
Zack’s continuous hunt for the
man who killed his father; his ro
mance with his unknown enemy’s
son’s bride-to-be; the complete
extinction of a small outpost by
a band of pillaging Indians—these
highlights spur the drama of
“Wagon Train” and bring the
thrill-packed feature to a highly
exciting climax.
“Winners of the West” and a
Buster Keaton comedy, “Taming
of the Snood” complete this pro
gram. 3
“HOWARDS OF VIRGINIA”
TO CLOSE AT CAROLINA
For the last times today the
Carolina theatre will present Cary
Grant and Martha Scott as “The
young Americans who fell so mad
ly in love that they broke with all
tradition. “The Howards of
Virginia” is the film version of
Elizabeth Page’s best selling
novel, “The Tree of Liberty.”
Starting Monday at the Caro
lina, Wilmington theatre-goers
will be entertained by one of the
year’s most thrilling motion pic
tures, “Foreign Correspondent”,
the latest directorial achievement
of Alfred Hitchcock, the man who
was responsible for the great suc
cess of “Rebecca.” Joel McCrea,
Laraine Day, Herbert Marshall
and Robert Benchley are featured
in “Foreign Correspondent.” 3

On the eve of opening its annua)
membership campaign, the board
of the Wilmington Co - Operative
Concert association has announced
that it is asking for tentative hold
dates on the Platoff Don Cossack
Choir as one of their stellar at
tractions for the coming season.
This chorus comprises twenty-sev
en singers and dancers, the men
of the chorus having among their
number several famed for their
wild Coassack dancing which adds
much to the interest of their pro
grams. This choir was founded in
Prague in 1926 and prior to this
season has given around 4,000 con
certs in all parts of the world. This
will make the choir’s second sea
son in America and they are al
ready so heavily booked that the
hold date is necessary in order
to secure them.
Other artists to fill out a well
rounded program are under con
sideration but final selection is left
until the close of the membership
listing, in order that the fullest
possible budget may be utilized.
Burton Morris of the New York
office, who headed up the mem
bership week last year will again
be in Wilmington, arriving Monday
to take active charge, with Miss
Mary B. Williams as local chair
man and many interested work
ers. E. H. Munson is president of
the local association, with W. G.
Robertson as secretary and treas
urer. Mrs. J. B. Fenley heads the
Artist Selection committee, made
up,of competent musicians of the
city.
Membership week will start Mon
day, October 14 with a luncheon
meeting in St. John’s Episcopal

be installed and a headquarters
staff will be in charge throughout
the week. Active workers are wel

Your Age Is A Secret Just Not
Worth Keeping, Millett Declares
BY RUTH MILLETT
It’s a mistake for a woman to
refuse to tell her age—for several
reasons.
To begin with, the very fact that
she has grown coy about her age
is positive proof that she is older
than she would like to be.
Then, too, an attempt at con
cealment makes age seem a
shameful secret.
Also, as long as a woman refuses
to tell her age, all her friends
speculate on it. Her secrecy be
comes a challenge, and friends
piece dates together in the avid
manner of a person working a
cross-word puzzle.
And last, but not least, it doesn’t
necessarily follow that if a woman
refuses to tell her age, her friends
will underestimate it. Their guess
may add five years to the actual
figure. Funny that never occurs
to women.
* « *
Don’t Make Age
Seem Important
The best plan is to be casual and
off-hand about your age. If anyone
so much as hints that your age
might be a very interesting fact—
tell it.
And don’t—unless you are a bet
ter liar than most people—subtract
five years from it. If you subtract
five, your friends will probably
doubt you to the extent of adding
ten.
you don’t want your age to
become the most discussed thing
about you among your friends—
let them knw how old you are.
Then they can forget your age
and speculate on someone else’s.
Nobody’s age is interesting—once
it is known. 1
