SENATE BAN ON ! M'CORMIGK AND DAVIS JFORECAST Huge Campaign Expense Is Expected to Keep Pair i From Seats. Bv Rcrippt-TJaward Xewtpaper Alliance WASHINGTON, Sept. I.—Charges of excessive senate primary expen ditures had become so general be fore the Nye investigating commit tee today that it was reported the Progressives and Democrats will make definite moves to bar Secre tary Davis and Mrs. Ruth McCor mick from their seats if they are elected in November. Though most members of the sen ate are withholding comment on the expenditures of the cabinet member and the first woman to stand a chance of being elected to the sen ate. Senator Harris of Georgia, al ready has pointed out publicly that Mrs. McCormick's outlay exceeded the $195,000 spent by Truman H. Newberry of Michigan, who was condemned in a formal resolution. Both Mrs. McCormick and Davis spent almost $300,000. Borah Action Awaited Senator Borah of Idaho, who usually has made the first move for investigation of primary funds, Is expected here in a few days, and some word on the subject may come from him. Should he take the lead, it is al most certain that the progressives and Democrats will follow him, and in cases of this kind friends and supporters of the candidates con cerned are loath to oppose such at tempt. Definite action may wait upon the outcome of the elections in Illinois and Pennsylvania, although both Davis and Mrs. McCormick are said to be sure of victory. It then will be a question of holding to the precedent set in the Newberry fight, or of waving this because of the fact that the cost of votes, as well as everything else, has gone up. Ban Deemed Certain Incidentally, the senate which will pass on any attempt to keep the two prospective members from their seats will be controlled by Demo crats and progressives, unless all political signs fail. Since William S. Vare of Pennsyl vania and Frank L. Smith of Illi nois were kept out by a senate ac tually in control of the Republicans, the chances for Davis and Mrs. Mc- Cormick are no brighter, once the movement gains momentum. Senators discussing the Illinois and Pennsylvania situations seem to hold Davis less blamable than Mrs. McCormick. The latter, according to this view, admitted that she spent her owm money, and therefore ex ceeded the Newberry figure deliber ately. Davis, it is pointed out, did not use his own money, depending upon customary contributions.

Too Many Aces Bu United Press ROCKFORD, 111., Sept. I. Mrs. Tony Falliano appeared in county court here and pleaded with County Judge Walker F. Hull to release her husband, sentenced to three months’ imprisonment at the .Vandalia state farm for viola tion of liquor laws. To impress Judge Walker with her need of Tony's aid, Mrs. Falliano took seven small children with her to court. Miss Alice Walsh, probation officer, recognized several of the children as members of other families. Judge Walker ordered Mrs. Falliano to return home and to return the borrowed sym pathy children. Tony will spend the next three months at Vandalia. HOLLYWOOD SLOWING UP Movie Players Make Fewer Pictures Now to Retain Stardom BY DAN THOMAS NBA Service Writer HOLLYWOOD, Cal., Sept. I.—Can the popularity of a motion picture player be determined by the number of pictures in which he or she appears? Strange as it may seem to some persona, the answer to that question is a very decided “No.” Proof of that statement is that we know extras and bit players who have appeared in scores of films and yet they don't know what a fan letter Icofcs like. Yet Maurice Chevalier, who un questionably ranks among the five most popular screen stars today, has only four pictures to his credit. Then, too, there are certain stars in the business who used to make anywhere from twelve to twenty pictures a year. That was back in the days vhen the film racket really could be spoken of as an infant industry. Today, when turning out anywhere from two a year to one in two years, they are just as popular and perhaps more so than they were some years ago. Chaplin Makes One in Two Years Charlie Chaplin comes under that heading. Charlie used to grind out two-reelers like sausages. Now he is making one picture every two years. And the public still swarms to see his pictures. Harold Lloyd is another in that same class. Harold used Maurice Chevalier . . . he's popu lar, but has only four United States pictures to his credit. RESENER GOES VERY MODERN THESE DAYS John McCormack Saves a Weak Story in ‘Song o’ My Heart’ by a Great Voice in His First Talker. BY WALTER D. HICKMAN THE overture has gone ultra modem this week at the Indiana, where Ed Resener is directing a modernized version of "Orpheus.” Before Resener takes the conducting stand. Charlie Davis explains that the orchestra will play "Orpheus” as the composer might have composed it in the future, say 1960. We were introduced to some new notes and noises in "Rhapsody in Blue,” when Paul Whiteman first gave us an ear full of that, but we run up against a gang of new sounds and ef fects in the way they have done over "Orpheus.” The composer in his overture gives you the idea that Orpheus is in Hades and the modern arranger right at the end of the overture gives you by the aid of a screen and effects such as shots, sirens Charlie Davis and like the noise of a city in flames. My idea may be all wet. It may be that just some good woman was baking a cake and burnt it all up in the range. Anyway, you do experience something as Charlie Davis states, “probably has never been done by any orchestra before in the country.” It might make you want to hear "Home Sweet Home” cr such a "modern” as “St. Louis Blues,” but you must admit that Resener and his men put it over in good shape. Now we have the talking version of "Manslaughter.” with Fredric March as the young prosecuting at torney, who sends his own high so ciety sweetie to prison for many years because she killed an officer with her auto. The haughy heroine, who finally gets a heart and begins to act like a human being, is plkyed by Claudette Colbert. Here is good acting, wise direction and good photography. March gets all the sympathy. Miss Colbert makes the "heroine” the cheap skate that she is, plays it honestly and well. You know the story and I will not repeat. The only feature of outstanding quality in the stage show is the great toe tap dancing of Dick and Edith Barstow. They are wonder ful. The rest is only so so. Now at the Indiana. a a a CONCERNING GREAT SINGER ON THE SCREEN John McCormack on the concert stage has one of the great voices of all times and his personality has made him beloved and wealthy. John would never have gone in the movies if he could not have been heard in song. The modern sound movie makes it possible for John McCormack to sing and talk in “Song O’ My Heart.” They tell me that McCormack re ceived the nice sum of $400,000 for his part alone in this one. Probably such a great ex pense for one item alone accounts for the cheapness of some of the sets, the poor comedy John McCormack and a mighty weak story but it in no way excuses the carelessness on the part of the man who directed the picture. “Song O’ My Hearth” is only all right when McCormack is singing. His voice has been finely recorded. You feel that soul of his personality in song, just as you do chi the* concert stage. He sings a Biinibw* ftf Qi finfi In&h to turn out those short comedies so fast that he doesn’t know how many he did make. During the past few years he has been making pictures at the rate of ore each year. This list also could be stretched to include Mary Pickford, Douglas Fairbanks, Gloria Swanson, Norma Talmadge and Richard Barthelmess. However, despite the reduction in the number of pictures per annum they now are making, many of our present day favorites have surprisingly long lists of films to their credit. Foremost among them is Tom Mix, who has not been in front of a camera for the last eighteen months. Yet Tom is said to have played in more than 400 pictures during his brilliant career. Next in line is Jack Mulhall, who has 300 films to his credit and still is going strong. Bebe Daniels easily wins first place among our feminine popu lation with 288 productions, many of them, of course, being the one and two-reelers which were so popular some years ago. Betty Compson can count up to 219 when she starts to name over her films. And Mary Pickford and Norma Talmadge are both safely above the 200 mark. Many Have Played Nearly 100 Roles So far as we have been able to determine, none of the players whose names glitter in electric lights are between the 100 and 200 mark. But there are quite a few who fall short by only a small margin of having played 100 roles. They are H. B. Warner (90); George Marion and Edmund Breese (80); Milton Sills and Edmund Lowe (70); Evelyn Brent, Louise Fazenda and Harry Gribbon (60); Clara Bow, Richard Dix, Conrad Nagel, Viola Dana and Shirley Mason (50); Richard Barthelmess, Bessie Love, Lila Lee, Wallace Beery and Harry Carey (40). There are quite a number of others who can claim between thirty and forty picturs. Among them are Clive Brook, William Powell, Mary Brian, Warner Baxter, John Gilbert, William Maines, Clyde Cook, Edward Everett Horton, Pauline Frederick, Corinne Griffith, Jack Holt, Constance Talmadge, Mae Murray and Thomas Meighan. ment and beauty. One that I loved best is about the little boy who passes on leaving his toys to mourn in sorrow. Wise direction and common sense handling of McCormack by giving him the right kind of a story would have made “Song O’ My Heart” as good and all round picture as Law rence Tibbet in “The Rogue Song.” But the McCormack movie is not a good all round movie. In fact the star is so far ahead of everything else in the whole business that the cart never catches up with the horse. McCormack actually gives a glori fied song recital. I will remember McCormack but not the picture. Have your own idea about this one as usual. Now at the Apollo. a u a NOVARRO BECOMES VERY, VERY OPERATIC Os course, you know that Ramon Novarro is leaning more and more to the operatic stage than ever. He has gone a sort of a Spanish Lawrence Tibbett in "Call of the Flesh.” It is about time that Novarro sits himself down some place and study himself and his audience. He is sticking too close to a certain line of Spanish atmos phere. It takes Novarro as well as his director too long to shake off the spell or what ever it is. That is true of “Call of the Flesh,” as it takes about one-half of the footage before the story gets started or even mildly interesting. The last half of the picture is good. > • J|& H Novarro It holds your interest. Novarro does remarkably well as the heartbroken clown in “Pagliacci.” In fact, he will surprise you. He makes up for some weak work at the first of the picture by his good work in the last half. The director also seemed to get awake and realizes that he had something to do, and he did it well; that is in the last half. I think that the mistake has been made in attempting to drag out a story that cc-uld have been told in two or three less reels. The feminine love element is played by Dorothy Jordan. The type of role would handicap any one. Ernest Torrence is both good and bad. Bad in the first part and good in the last. He plays the piano. Really? Yes. it looks like it. You may or may not agree with me. That is your great privilege. Now at the Palace. a a a CONCERNING “BIRTH” NOW AT ENGLISH’S It is a hard job for me to tell you about such pictures as “Birth” or other pictures that has to do with sex. I believe that “Birth” does not come under the head of entertain ment or theater. It must necessarily preach and it does that. I know that the very title is box office. And the scenes showing the actual delivery of a child by a modern operation are real. Before the picture opened its run at English's Indianapolis doctors were invited to a private screening. _ I toifeto to v£iai Kemmawp THE INDIANAPOLIS TIMES IiPPII Bebe Daniels . . . wins first place among actresses with 288 produc tions. doctors after the picture and they told me in answer to my questions that the operations recorded in the movie were real, done by the Euro pean method and not in this coun try as different cuts and methods are generally used. But the opera tions of childbirth in this movie are real, that I believe. These are not pleasant sights and do not come under the head of en tertainment. Parts of the movie showing a young girl going astray are terribly silly, poorly directed—the only pos sible excuse being that of a pos sible moral. The picture may make you ill at your stomach; it may stun you or you may rebell at the whole thing. You may think it is terrible. It is up to the individual who sees the picture. I make no recom mendations. The picture lives up to its title. Now at English's. n u a “HELL’S ISLAND” OPENS NEW THEATER When two people fall in love, and there is a third party interested, there is bound to be trouble, in “Hell’s Island” we find this situa tion made more interesting and dramatic because the two men in the triangle are pals. Mac and Griff, played respectively by Jack Holt and Ralph Graves, are in the French Legion. Although the two quarrel most of the time, there is nothing they would not do to help each other in a time of need. Enters Marie, acted by Dorothy Sebastian, an en- ifil kt Jack Holt tertainer, out for money, nothing more. Then she meets Griff. Money becomes insignificant, love every thing. But Mac has met Marie be fore; he knows how she has lived, and, therefore, misjudges her inten tions. The two pals really quarrel this time. Passions are laid bar. A time comes when Mac and Griff find themselves alone in the desert, after an encounter with the Riffs. Griff tries to help Mac, who has been wounded, but is rebuked. A lone Riff makes his appearance, un seen to Mac, shoots him in the back and makes his get-away, as Griff fires after him. Mac thinks Griff has shot him. Against orders Griff carries him to an ambulance. Asa result of trying to save his pal, Griff is sentenced to ten years on Hell’s island. Marie promises to follow. To keep her promise she marries Mac, after his wound has healed, and persuades him to finish his remaining two years as a guard on the island. On the island Mac learns her true purpose, and thinks he has been double-crosssed by both Griff and Marie. He arranges an escape for them, meaning to double-cross them in turn, but he discovers in time that Griff did not shoot him. Os course, what follows is only what one pal would do for another, espe cially when that one has so mis judged the other. Suspense and ac tion are prominent in “Hell’s Island.” The acting and direction are good. I want to add that the sound equipment in the new Terminal, where this picture is showing, is excellent, which adds much to any theater or picture. Now at the Terminal. (By Con nell Turpen.) a a a A DOG HELPS TO WIN THE WAR A dog wins a war medal, and just a little shaver, too. If you do not believe me, see Moran and Mack in “Anybody’s War.” These two radio entertainers, given you a war of comedy. Most misleading, but nevertheless a lot of fun. Dogs seem to be the worry in Mack's life, as he caches them for * linn* halii toe ms BUSINESS CRASH BLAME LAIB TO G. 0. P, POLICIES Democrats to Hammer on Hard Times Theme in Vote Contests. By Ecripp-H award Xewtpaper Alliance WASHINGTON, Sept. I.—The Democrats will go to the country in the fall elections with the business depression, the agricultural slump, and enactment of a Republican tariff alleged to have accentuated these conditions as their principal arguments for repudiation of the Hoover administration. On the heels of the Republican national committee's issuance of an unofficial campaign platform re citing the achievements of the Hoover administration, Representa tive Cordell Hull of Tennessee, a former national chairman and a candidate for the senate, today de clared the G. O. P. statement only emphasized that “the first year and a half of the Hoover administra tion is distinguished by lack of a striking performance for the public welfare.” In the tw r o statements are seen the notes which the party cam paigners will stress in the com ing campaign. The Republicans will ask a vote of confidence on the strength of the tariff and agricul ture acts and the London naval treaty, while the Democrats will contend that the new duties and the farm board's policies have done nothing to prevent unemployment or bring the country out of the slump. They will picture the naval pact as negligible in its effect, even though they will point out that Democratic votes made possible its approval by the senate. Hull’s statement commented on the Republicans’ failure to sing the old song of prosperity as a w r ar cry. It assailed the tariff as designed to aggravate bad conditions, and de clared the opposition was content to let the G. O. P. take credit for crea tion of the farm board and its sub sequent accomplishments. Most of the other things cited in the administrations’ review', . Hull asserted, consisted of mere routine performances. It also declared that “effective leadership, political, mor al and economic,” had not been shown by the President or his party associates. COOGAN BACK IN FILMS Jackie Again Is Malting Pictures; Kid Brother to Break In. By XEA Service HOLLYWOOD, Cal., Sept. I.—lt begins to look as though movie fans are going to see quite a lot of the Coogan family on the screen again. Jackie is back again, after an absence of three years, busily en gaged in the mak ing of “Tom Saw yer.” And now it is reported that his kid brother, Robert, will play the title role in “Skippy,” which the Paramount studios are to Jackie Coogan produce in the near future. This will mark Robert's first appear ance on the silvre screen. PEACH CROP TO HOGS Crops So Heavy Much of Fruit Is Fed Farm Animals. Bv United Press HANFORD, Cal. Sept. I.—Peach flavored bacon and ham may be the next thing. California's peach crop is so heavy this year that thousands of tons are being permitted to stay on the trees. Asa result, some ranchers are making the most of a bad situation and turning their hogs loose in the peach orchards. Green Grapes Cause Death Bu Times Fnecial WABASH, Ind., Sept. I.—Nonan Shambaugh, 2. daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Shambaugh, died at a hospital here a week after eating green grapes. out. In the war his main worry is to keep himself well covered with danger eliminator, which in the form of powder, he purchases for the price of $2 from a fellow soldier. Bullets, gas, nothing holds any terror for Moran, and Mack and his dog, with the danger eliminator ever protecting them. They make a parade ground out of no man’s land. It disappoints Mack to think that his dog, would make love to an enemy dog, but anything seems to go in this war. Aside from the comedy furnished by these two well-known blackfaced fun makers, Neil Hamilton and Joan Peers bring in a little love in terest. Just enough for a good balance. If you like Moran and Mack, you will like this picture. Nothing seri ous about it, except perhaps when Mack says goodbye to all his dogs, before sailing for the big war. Now showing at the Circle. (By Connell Turpen.) a a a A SHE GUN-MAN WHO CAN SING A girl who can shoot and sing. Some combination. That is Helen Kane in “Dangerous Nan McGrew.” She sings better than she shoots. This picture offers nothing much, but a chance to hear Helen Sing. And she can sing in her own in dividual way, we know that. There is very little story present, and that is lost in the ever present hokum, that does not help in the least to bring this talkie up to standard. Just a lot of film wasted for nothing, as I see it. Helen Kane deserves a better break, than this sort of foolishness. The rest of the cast, which in cludes Stuart Erwin and James Hall, does not seem to help matters. Not their fault, however, when good me terial is lacking. A poor picture, but for the songs introduced and sang by Miss Kane. Now showing at the Ohio.

The souvenirs were presented to the university by Evelyn B. Baldwin, United States meteorologist, now 62, who was to have accom panied Andree, but who escaped the explorers’ fate because he arrived at the starting base at Spitsbergen too late.

By Scrippt-Batcnrd Sctrtpaoer Alliance WASHINGTON. Sept. I.—The unsuccessful fight against solitary confinement made by Sanford Bates, superintendent of Untied States prisons, before the interna tional prison conference at Prague, focused attention again on the harsh disciplinary measures used in some American penitentiaries. A survey shows that solitary con finement is not unusual, dark cells and the bread and water diet are more or less common, and even the dungeon still exists. There evidently is a trend toward more humane treatment of prison ers, but the relatively small scope of this movement is illustrated in a survey of American penitentiaries published recently by the National Society of Penal Information. Inc. Paul W. Garrett and A. H. Mac- Cormick were editors of the society's 1929 handbook of prisons. The latter is an official in Bates’ bureau. Confined in Dark Cells Confinement of prisoners, who have committed some of the more serious offenses in dark or semi dark cells, prevails even in federal penitentiaries, the survey revealed. Four dark cells await unruly prisoners at McNeil Island. Wash., but the sixteen punishment cells there are described as “large, light and well-ventilated.” For more serious offenses, men sent to Ft. Leavenworth are con fined in semi-dark cells, sometimes on restricted diet. Kilby prison, Oklahoma, has dark cells in which prisoners are shut, up, usually only for a few days. Ventilation and sanitation is described as “not up to modern institutional standards” in the semi-dark punishment cells at Florence, Ariz. There is a dungeon at Folsom prison, California, where men are confined if the cells in the punish ment corridor are filled. After the first ten days in these cells, the bread and water diet is broken by one full ration a w'eek. Kept in Dungeons There are fourteen punishment ccells at San Quentin in the same state. The survey found them dark, without plumbing, but fed with air through a forced ventilation sys tem. A prisoner who breaks the rules at Railford prison, Fla., can be sent to solitary confinement and given terms of a few hours up to ten days. The prison at Boise, Idaho, had eighteen dark punishment cells, in which convicts are confined from two to three days a week. Occa sionally one is held for thirty days. In one case, the survey related, an inmate was confined for “upward of a year.” From one to ten days in solitary on bread and water are given frac tious prisoners at Michigan City, Ind., and the Stillwater (Minn.) prison also disciplines convicts by solitary confinement.
