France, he declared, will flower again. “My dear friends,” Petain said in a radio speech for French youth to day, “there is a symbolic position in the severe winter which inflicts pri vations and suffering and the sad period our country is passing through. “But stronger than the winter, we hold intact our faith in the return cf spring. “Young Frenchmen, the France which today lies prostrate will one day flower again.” Petain said that in the national revolution” which he heads the elimination . of individualism was necessary for reconstruction. "Every Frenchman must begin to forget himself . . he declared. "I don’t ask you to shed your indepen- • dence but independence may be per fectly accommodated to discipline while individualism invariably leads to anarchy.” Dunn Man Is Killed When Struck By Train DUNN, Dec. 29.—UP)—Hannibal D.

MovieRevues “SPRING PARADE” MARKS BIJOU THEATRE BILL You’ll have to travel far and wide to find a better hour of en tertainment than Universal’s “Spring Parade,” which plays to day at the Bijou theatre. The star is Deanna Durbin. Eight great pictures in succes sion is now Deanna’s proud record. And proud she should be, for no other star, either on the stage or screen, has ever been able to cre ate such an unbroken line of tri umphs. To try to analyze just why “Spring Parade’ is such a mas terpiece, is to try to explain, note by note, the beauty of a symphony. It would be like dissecting an emo tion. The program also includes Our Gang comedy, “Capt. Spanky’s Showboat’ and the latest news. 1 “LOVE THY NEIGHBOR” OFFERED AT BAILEY Fred Allen had the time of his life for one whole day while mak ing ‘‘Love Thy Neighbor,” which continues its engagement today and Tuesday at the Bailey thea tre, in which he co-stars with Jack Benny. He spent the time taking pot shots at “Jack Benny and the Merry Macs” with a shotgun. Mark Sandrich, the producer-di rector of the picture for Para mount, wasn’t at all cure of Fred’s marksmanship. Neither was Fred. The last time he had handled a shotgun was an indistinct memory from his childhood. Fearful that the shots might go wild and injure innocent bystand ers, Sandrich requested a brace of officers of the law to stand by. Their arrival at the studio in a patrol wagon convinced everyone that finally the feud of a decade had gotten out of control. They followed the police car in droves. Imagine their surprise when they found Fred waving a shotgun glee fully in the air, then aiming and firing like a trained marskman, at an electric sign on a theatre mar quee reading, “Jack Benny and the Merry Macs,” and gradually put ting it out, letter by letter. Assisting in this feud of the age, either to egg them on or keep them apart, are Mary Martin, Ver ree Teasdale, the Merry Macs, Vir ginia Dale and Rochester. 1 “HULLABALOO” FEATURED AT CAROLINA THEATRE Imagine, if you can, Frank Mor gan doing a serious love scene in the voice of Clark Gable, and you’ll know why “Hullabaloo,” showing currently at the Carolina theatre is one of the funniest films to come out of Hollywood this season. “Hullabaloo,” from start to fin ish, was designed to make audi ences laugh. It tells the story of an ex-vaudevillian who attempts to get a job on radio. He lands his contract and then proceeds to head straight into disaster by eliminat ing the commercials. The subse quent notoriety he receives brings three ex-wives and their respec tive children descending down on his head demanding back alimony. How he manages to successfully elude this scrape, and how he fi nally wins both fame and fortune, serves as an hour’s top entertain ment. In the regular cast, Frank Mor gan heads the festivities and does screamingly funny impersonations of many of the film great. His ex-wives include Billie Burke, Sara Haden and Connie'Gilchrist. His children are portrayed by Virginia Grey, Miss Lynn and little Larry Nunn. The romantic interest cen ters about a triangle composed of Miss Grey, Dan Dailey, Jr., and Ann Morriss. Nydia Westman is responsible for many of the film’s laughs in a top character role. Others who contribute to the ex cellence of the performance include Donald Meek, Reginald Owen, Du Bois and Barnett Parker. The Carolina adds to your en tertainment with a sports novelty, “Playmates from the Wild,” an Ozzie Nelson Musical, and the latest news. 1 “CHRISTMAS IN JULY” TO OPEN AT ROYAL Dick Powell, Hollywood’s refugee from musical pictures, has made his second picture without the sign of a song.

Use Of Tile Suggested To Home Builders For Its Beauty, Durability If you are at all like most home owners, you can picture just what you want your home to be long be fore any plans or specifications are ever drawn. Perhaps you’ve kept illustrations of fire places, stair ways, bathrooms and game rooms which were particularly pleasing to you. You also have very defi nite ideas about the good points, and the shortcomings, of the homes you’ve visited—a well lighted liv ing room with ample wall space, an attractive sunporch, an awk ward hallway, or a poorly planned kitchen. Have you ever noticed how many homes have Tile in them? How attractively its colors and designs set off the fittings and furnishings of a room? How effectively Tile becomes a part of the plan of deco ration and how it gives an air of refinement, luxury and durability? Maybe you’ve also noticed how often you find Tile walls and floors in rooms which are used the most and get the greatest wear and tear, and in places where the height of cleanliness is uncon sciously the first requirement. It may have been used in bath rooms and kitchens, where unaf fected by soap and water, steam and grease, its enduring beauty gave an air of attractiveness and a sure feeling of durability and cleanliness. It may have been in an entry, a vestibule or a front hall where its pleasing colors and patterns remained unmarred by wet and muddy feet. Perhaps you found it in a basement laundry or game roem and saw how effective ly it prevents the ravages of out side moisture—so damaging to many walls and floors below ground level. If you ask any of these home owners about their Tile walls and floors, you’ll understr d why it is so widely used in American homes. For Tile always keeps its original color and brightness, undimmed and untarnished, as long as your home will stand. A simple wiping with a damp cloth takes off all normal household dust or grime and leaves your walls and floors spotlessly clean. Tile stands up under wear and tear, too, without any special care or attention on your part, and needs no periodic waxing, polishing or other finish to protect and beautify it. In fact it costs you nothing to own Tile walls and floors; for once they are installed, they neither require nor demand any further expense. The Carolina Cut Stone Co., Inc., local dealers and contractors for the high quality Tile-Tex wall and floor covering, have a full line of sample ready for your inspection. Call them at dial telephone 4171 for full information and estimates, or visit their plant and office at 815 MacRae street. 5 ‘The Grapes Of Wrath’ Named Best 1940 Film NEW YORK, Dec. 29.—<£>)—'The New \rork film critics announced to day they had chosen "The Grapes of Wrath" as the best motion picture of 1940 and awarded their best-perform ance scrolls to Charles Chaplin as "Pftooey” Hynkel in the “The Great Dictator” and to Katharine Hepburn ag Tracy Lord in “The Philadelphia Story.", ■John Ford was voted the year’s best director for "Grapes of Wrath” and “The Long Voyage Home.” Last year he was named for his work on ‘‘Stagecoach.” BULLFIGHTER KILLED MEXICO CITY.

Folly Of Waiting For Spring To Re-Tire Is Told By Tire Man Here “Few motorists realize the un told dangers they are taking by continuing to drive through the worst part of the year on old and worn-out tires, just waiting for Spring to buy a new set,” said Mr. Carl Causey, manager of the modern McConnell and Causey ser vice station and garage at 12th and Market streets. “Few of them really know how foolish their idea is. They can buy a new set of tires now, to give them safe driving over the wet, slippery roads prevailing at this time of the year, and still have those tires in practically perfect condition with no noticeable wear on the tread when Spring comes. “The cost of our well-known Goodyear tires will be about the same in the Spring, our credit terms unchanged and our service good as always, so there’s actually no reason for waiting,” he con tinued. “The truth of the matter is . . . unless you give considera tion to re-tiring now, those old tires you’re still riding on might give way and then you won’t be here to enjoy the Spring. “Every motorist is invited to call in at our station for an ex pert inspection of present tires, and we’ll be more than glad to accomodate with free estimates on the cost of a new set of Good years, and how our easy credit terms may be arranged to suit your motoring budget. “At the present time we are stocked with a complete line of all size Goodyears and have the particular tire to fit your driving needs. As an added service our experienced tire men can advise you on the proper type of tire for maximum mileage at lowest cost. “Call on us today and drive out on safe, economical Goodyears pur chased on convenient budget terms.” S Dulwich college, near London, was founded by Edward Alleyn, an actor, in 1619.
