PAY IN ADVANCE FOR SERVICE BY UTILITY SCORED Public Service Board May Abolish Practice; Says It Works Hardship. The quaint custom of utilities discontinuing service because a bill has to be paid in advance may be abolished by the public service as announced to day. Discussion of this point is already under way in the case of the Rich mond Telephone Company, and ac cording to certain commissioners, the idea is apt to spread. Commissioner Calvin Mclntosh, who conferred with Chairman Frank Singleton over the Richmond matter, pointed out that he was un aware of the origin of this practice of requiring customers to forfeit service not paid in advance. He outlined the present proced ure in such cases and cited the tre mendous advantage enjoyed by utili ties as compared with any competi tive business. His description of the present status follows: F.njoy Monopoly In the first place the utilities en joy an absolute monopoly and the dr atisfied customer can not trade elsewhere, but must continue to be a natron. , , Then a deposit, usually large en f "ieh to cover any ordinary bill, m , st b< ide with the company. Bills must be paid in advance and a fine of 10 per cent is levied for any delinquency of more than ten da>s. Tn Indianapolis these identical conditions prevail only with the In dianapolis Water Company and are being changed with the metenza tion program. They are not uncommon through out the state, however, the commis sioners assert. Asked to Give Service The Richmond company has been informally asked not to discontinue service when the account is paid up to the time service has been rendered, it was said. In other words it should not cancel because pay ment has not been made for serv ice not yet rendered, Mclntosh ex plained. . , Here a $3 deposit must be made with the Indianapolis Power and Light Company and a S3 service charge is levied by the Indiana Bell Company. Five dollars must be deposited with the water company or the Citizens Gas Com pany. At the latter place the sig nature of a freeholder is taken in stead of the deposit. This guaran tees bill payment. On the old hat rate system the water company gets the S3 deposit and then the customer is forced to „a\ three months in advance. Un der the meter system payment is not made until the monthly meter reading is sent. Scores 10 Ter Cent Fine Should the bill not be paid promptly, in all cases, service is dis continued within a given period. The amount of the bill is then de ducted from the deposit. Otherwise the money is refunded, with inter est. if one ever ceases to be a con sumer voluntarily. The discount, or fine, system is used by all but the telephone com pany. Telephone bills must be paid in advance. Mclntosh asserts that In his opin ion this 10 per cent is also an ex cessive charge, when levied in addi tion to the bill, rather than as dis count. EDUCATOR-PLAYWRIGHT IS TAKEN BY DEATH Brander Matthews Prominent Half Cer'ury as Critic. Bn J nitrd Press NEW YORK. April I.— Brander Matthews, prominent as critic, play wright and educator for almost half a century, died Sunday at his home after a week’s illness.

THE BEST PICTURE IN TOWN IS THIS- The Broadway Melody’ Goes Way Beyond in Anything That Has Been Done in Sound and Talk in City. BY WALTER D. HICKMAN I STOOD outside on Broadway when this thing they called “The Broad way Melody" opened in New York. There was lots of talk about the grand people who went to -see it on that first ten-buck-a-seat and what have you. It's all the berries aoout a New York film opening. It Is all so silly. So fake. I do not care about what Broadway does about “The Broadway Mel ody" It is a picture that will make you respect the right to go to a movie theater. Here is honesty beyond any press agent stunt that these two-buck-a-seat press agents may throw over in New York. I doubt if there is a combination that could defeat this "Broadway Melody." So I carry back with me no lem ons. I do not lie to you that I was invited on the first blue ribbon line of this picture on Broadway. I took a legitimate show. Called “Serena Blandish.” I want you to get the background. Twice I have seen in pri vate showing "The Broadway Melody” before it opened at Loew’s Palace. And twdee it was on the invitation of the manager of the Palace here. I want you to get the background of an individual ef fort that means an experiment in the theater. There are many things that I love about Charles rvuig this picture. It has direction. It has brains on the part of the cast. Look at the chief players—Bessie Love Anita Page—Charles King. : And it has melody. A thing that j will set you on fire. It sounds like | "The Parade of the Wooden Sol- | diers,” but it has more of a dash, j It is called something about the i wedding of the painted dolls. This j scene has the stomp and the dash of a march and a step of a legiti mate show. It has ene stomp and the beat of a hit tune. This is the movie of talk, and music that has made Ziegfeld and the rest of the glorified individuals take notice of what people will like in the future. Rake away all the press agents. Forget about them. Go and see this picture—“ The Broadway Melody.” See Bessie Love as “Hank” come back into her very own. See her as the human individual. See her do her great come back. See her as "Hank" who loved her baby sister w'ho tried to be wrong while being just a tank vaudeville act. See her play the real guy and the fake. And then see what a director of a movie may do with a scene in color and sound. And please see how the management of Loew’s Palace in this city has watched, studied and thought on the time thing that makes sound and talk sound right. And this has been accomp’ished in "Broadway Melody." as produced here. I am getting very much tired with the fakes who say that the movies can not be as great as the spoken stage. There is somebody kidding themselves when they get that idea. I am willing after years of telling j you about the stage that "The Broadway Melody” has as much sat- j isfaction as any stage show that I have ever seen. The name of Charles King is known on the legitimate stage. Bessie Love as “Hank” who loved by birth the character played by Anita Page, has had training to that extent which makes a comeback. Anita Page flashed before you on a blaze of a very cheap press agent stunt. This is the first time that Anita Page has ever deserved the right to be seriously considered. Here is honest pathos—love— thought—struggle—fights jealousy even defeat in the game that we call variety entertainment or how the tank town "artist'' becomes the roaoy of Broadway. When you see “Brodway Melody” ! you will get more satisfactory en ; tertainment than A1 Jolson has . turned out in his two box office I movies.

Here is glorious entertainment that is way beyond what you dare to expect on the screen with sound and voice. There is no apology about “The Broadway Melody.” You will agree with me that it has elevated sound and melody to the realm of the legitimate stage. In the new way of making en tertainment nothing has ever ap proached “The Broadway Melody.” At Loew's Palace all week. a a a IN WHICH I MAY BE ALL WRONG To my way of thinking the late Gregory Kelly did a play called “Badges” with Madge Kennedy. It never hit this town. But now, I think, we Iwe it in movie form under the name of “The Ghost Talk s.” Rather a silly movie title? Yes. Here we have the boob kid. a clerk in a small Main street hotel. Very small street. He thinks that he is a detective by the correspondent sys tem. He is quite the silly lovable kid. A girl is be ing chased by a bunch of crooks who think that she knows where the bonds have been *r- ' '^m t ■ Helen Twelvetrees placed in a secret hiding place. And of course the boob and the girl will be always happy when the picture stops. At times the director has made the sap detective an awful boob. Not such a wise director. A little too much sap. But *he director gets away from his error and he makes the hero into a pretty good sap at that. I remember when I read "Bristol Blass" for Kelly years ago on his invitation. I never read "Badges” for him or the rest of the world. If I had I would have selected the director for the movie. (I must be conceited.> But there is fun of the overdrawn type in "The Ghost Talks." There is a "colored"' team that will make you howl with their slap stick bed room burlesque stuff. It is just a horse laugh, but a might good stom ach laugh at that. There are two interesting names in the cast—Helen Twelvetress and Eaton. (Not forgetting the two "colored" hokum players.'' “The Ghost Talks" is all week at the Apollo. a a AND THE BEST HERE IS CHARLIE DAVIS I generally talk out in meetin' and I will tell you that Clara Bow picture by the name of "The Wild Party" is the terrible thing she has ever done. But speaking of shows—Charlie Davis and his men and those who make up the stage unit reach a fine point of genuine satisfaction. I have been finding fault with the alleged comedy attempts of Davis. But not this week. He is giving us melody. He ‘plays the cornet, plays the piano, introduces a cute little female singer who plays, plays and plays; he introduces two girls who have a mighty clever and good 1 brand of fun although one of them THE TNDTANAPOTJS TIMES Report of the Condition of Farmers Trust Company 150 East Market Street At Close of Business, March 27, 1929 RESOURCES Loans $ 1,079,575.50 U.

Then in this Charlie Davis show there is some real melody done on the part of the orchestra. Then there are some dancing girls who do a “leg" irather a half “leg" dance' behind a half drop that will tanta lize one even if the curtain is all the way up. Davis has no apology for his work and those of his men and all the others this week. And the lights have been used correctly. Here is a stage show that is right. And Davis is right every moment that he is on the stage. Now speaking of the Clara Bow picture with “sound." The director of this picture must have been all out of class. If he was not, Clara Bow as a “talking” thing Is all wrong. Miss Bow would never own this picture if she is sincere in en tertaining the American public. It is the most terrible attempt to do sound and talking that I have ever seen wished upon an unsuspecting pubic. Somebody, including Miss Bow. should use a lot of expense in writing fans about this one. Here is a silly story' about a col lege. God forbid that I would send anybody to a college that has dames and males acting as they do in this movie. Silly and unreal. And I will not say about “The Wild Party" be your own judge.

And that is something these days. Here is a costume picture of the other days n England, and even when the vessels of France had some command on the seas. Before “The Divine Lady” became visible on a screen in Indianapolis several people who buy their seats came to me and told me that they welcomed a chance to see "romantic beauty” on the screen. And that is what “The Divine Lady” really is—a costume attempt at romantic beauty. It will lift you at times into another realm, that of romance. You probaly never will remember that Corinre Griffith is the star of this picture—the dame who was the daughter of a cook and who became the wife of a pow erful diplomat during the pesky revolution in France. I think that the most troublesome thing that Miss Griffith has to overcome in this picture is not so much bad direction, but mighty poor "blind” photography. And the sound j does not match Miss Griffith. Too I bad!
