It always is.. .Incidentally. John Mason Brown typewrote a slamming column about the same staring nuisances.. Only John found people inside the theater—especially at “Jubilee"—Just as irri tating as the peasants on the pavement. They ankled back and forth in the aisles to ogle Joan and Franc hot—like cannibals inspecting a missionary. But Mr. Brown should really be gentler with these white tied yokels and their happy sirens. After all, they pay good money to exhibit their rudeness and bad manners. How do you like this?.. .The Soviet show, “Squaring the Circle.” a farce kidding the communistic set-uo. is a wow In Russia—but it comes over here to get booed—and by New York Reds, yet! .

One flaw In “Porgy and Bess”: Porgy passes the dice after a single roll, “pomlng out”.. The director is hereby notified that this should be followed either by another toss—or a knife fight Dr. Frederick S. Boas on page 27 of the Herald Trib is quoted as saying: “In return ing to America one sees greater Interest in Shakespeare than ever be fore. When I first landed, one of the first things I noticed was the Interest In the revivals of Philip Merivale and Gladys Cooper” On page 22 of the same gazette: “The Shakespearean revivals of Merivale and Miss Cooper, scheduled for six weeks, will close tomorrow” When the Italian army captured Aduwa, huge signs marked “M” and “E” were stuck up . .The letters were explained i s standing for Mus solini and King Emanuel—but you can bet, and safely, too, that II Duce knows that they stand for “ME”.

A college poll shows that men pre fer their women beautiful and dumb. It seems that a man can over look thickness in a woman’s head—but never, never in her ankles.

For the first time since the Institution of the agency, there were no cases listed as “approved and not yet placed.”. The agency last week cared for about 600. The mutual aid last week dis continued the acceptance of new cases. Thi: burden Is now shoulder ed by the public welfare depart ment, which will henceforth care for all new relief cases.
