Evening It Up
NASHVILLE, T^enn., Oct. 19.
—UP)—The Nashville Tennes
sean purchased a full page of
space in every other Sunday
paper issued in Tennessee to
morrow to present “The Case
for Mr. Roosevelt.”
Declaring that the Tennes
sean, of which Silliman Evans
is president and publisher, is .
the only major paper in the
s'tate actively supporting the
candidacy of the President for
reelection, the statement said:
“The ends of democracy re
quire . . . that, not merely a
part, but the whole of the pic
ture be placed before the peo
ple; that the argument shall
not be one-sided in the press.”
The newspaper’s statement
said it favored President Roose
velt in 1932 and 1936 and out
lined reasons for supporting
him now.
It referred to Wendell Will
kie as “miscast” in the role of
republican '. candidate and
praised the President for mak
ing “every possible effort to
preserve the peace.” 1

‘The Old Maid’ Will
Show At Bijoa Here
"The Old Maid,” co-starring Bette
Davis and Miriam Hopkins, will open
Tuesday at the Bijou theatre. Filmed
by Warner Bros., it has been hailed
as the outstanding dramatic event
of the year—a rare combination of
brilliant talents in the fields of act
ing, writing and directing.
One feminine star— especially if
she be that double Academy winner,
Bette Davis — might be considered
sufficient for a photoplay, no mat
ter how great. But in “The Old
Maid” there are two. Besides Bette
Davis there is the lovely and highly
capable Miriam Hopkins, who has
starred in many a topnotch produc
tion on her own account. The girls
have equally important parts. This
is the first time, since they reached
stardom, that either has ever shared
acting honors or top billing honors
with another player of her own sex.
With Miss. Davis and Miss Hop
kins in the picturization 'of "The
Old Maid” are such players as
George Brent, Jane Bryan, Donald
Crisp, Louise Fazenda, James Ste
phenson, Jerome Cowan, William
Lundigan, Cecilia Loftus, Janet
Shaw, DeWolf Hopper and Rand
Brooks. The director was Edmund
Goulding, whose latest previous tri
umph was Bette Davis’ sensational
“Dark Victory. '
The story deals with two cousins,
Charlotte and Delia Lovell, who live
in the same old house in aristocratic
Philadelphia in the period between
1861, when the Civil War broke out;
and the 1880’s. Despite the luxury
and wealth with which they are
surrounded, they hate and envy each
other for twenty-odd years: Then
the daughter of ‘‘the sour old maid”
—this young girl played brilliantly
by Jane Bryan—is able to bring
mutual understanding to them as
their gray hairs and lined faces tell
they have entered middle age.
To complete the program we will
have a Disney Cartoon and Newsreel.
