HICKMAN AT least two great men have given outstanding perform ! ances as Cardinal Richelieu on the American stage. They are the late Robert Mantel and Walter Hampden, who today includes “Richelieu” in his reper toire where it will remain as long as he lives. The only great actor In America today who could success fully bring the Cardinal to the talking screen is George Arliss, and he has done that tremendous task as one of his career’s two major charac terizations. I place his Disraeli along side his Cardinal Richelieu in the Joseph M Schenck’s movie production of that name. His 13 mr George Ariiss Richelieu is an Intellectual, alert, energetic and a resourceful charac ter who combines the duties of his high office with the affairs of state. He is crafty, sly, and powerful when he forces King Louis XIII (Edward Arnold) to clean court, respect the church and save his throne. Mr. Arliss makes the cardinal a mentally devout man, but not an emotional one. Mr. Mantel’s Rich elieu was an emotional fatherly characterization, a man who used his high office and the power of Rome only in emergency. Mr. Hampden’s Cardinal does not differ so greatly from that of Mr. Arliss, but the latter gives the cardinal the characteristic of rapid speech and decision which is found in most of Mr. Arliss’ work. an a IN this role. Mr. Arliss shows the fruit of his many years of labor upon the stage and screen. Here is a master craftsman working upon a great historical character and he is able to bring to life again this man of great power. It is evident that the star has spent years studying Richelieu, just as he would have done if he were bringing the play to a Broadway theater or even the London stage. An outstanding performance of King Louis is given by Mr. Arnold. His Louis is an egotistical, but rather cautious, fop, who fights for a time the treacherous advice of his queen and her scheming advisors. The romantic interest in the film is furnished pleasingly by Lenore j (Maureen O'Sullivan) and Andre DePons (Cesar Romero). Their act ; ing is along movie lines, not great i but pleasing. The figures of court and in diplo matic circles have been splendidly i assigned. Fine work is contributed by Violet Cooper, Kathryn Alexan der, Robert Dumbriile, Francis Lis ter, Guy Beilis, Boyd Irwin. Lums den Hare, Herbert Bunston and many others. The production, both as to cos tumes and scenic background, is one of great beauty and dignity. Splen did lighting effects are provided and the recording is excellent. Here is another fine accomplish ment of the talking screen and a masterpiece in the hands of Mr. Arliss. Now at Loew’s Palace. a a a Jencks to Sing Frederic jencks, baritone, will appear in recital tomorrow afternoon at 3 at the Indianapolis THE INDIANAPOLIS TIMES EASTER CROWDS ON PARADE ARE FILM FEATURES Roosevelts at White House Egg-Rolling Festivities Seen in Reel.

STATE FAIRGROUNDS TRIBUTE PAID 7 CITIES IN STATE BY MAGAZINE Work of Various Towns Is Given Recognition by Publication. Seven Indiana cities were either prominently featured or favorably mentioned in the April number of “The American City,” a leading national publication in the field of municipal administration. The George Rogers Clark memor ial at Y.ncennes was the subject of a leading article by William E. Par sons, Chicago architect. Congress in 1928 provided for the construction on the site of old Ft. Sackville in Vincennes of “A per manent memorial commemorating the winning of the old Northwest and the achievements of George Rogers Clark and his associates in the War of the American Revo lution.” Indiana acquired the grounds, buildings and other improvements on the site of the old fort and Con gress appropriated $1,750,000 to con struct the memorial, landscape the grounds and construct a river wall. The memorial grounds cover 20 acres. Construct 7-Span Bridge Indiana and Illinois Jointly have constructed a seven-span reinforced concrete bridge as a part of the memorial. The memorial is approaching completion and promises to be a point of outstanding beauty as well as of historical significance. A featured article of an entirely different nature is one describing the municipally owned electric light plant at Richmond. Richmond erected its plant in 1901 at a cost of $144,490. Today the city’s plant is valued at $4,000,000 and is fuily paid for. In addition to being self support ing, and being able to set up re serve amounting to $450,000 in cash and government bonds, on the low est utility rate in the state, the j plant has contributed over $400,000 to the regular city expenses in the last 12 years. Contributed $105,000 In 1934 it contributed $105,000 to the regular city ftmds. This was equal to 35 cents per SIOO of as sessed valuation in the city. Huntingburg with its 3400 taxfree ( .APRIL' 26, 193i> 'municipal tax) citizens is the sub ject of another article in the maga zine. This city owns two profitable utilities—a water plant and the city electric power system. The city paid $36,000 for the two plants which are now valued at $453,267. At rates for water and power which compare favorably with those in other cities the city has been able to build up these plants and at the same time forego all city tax levies since 1931. Four Indiana cities are cited for their outstanding records during 1934 relative to traffic regulation. Ft. Wayne won first prize in its class (cities of 100,000 to 200.000 population) in the traffic contest held by the National Safety Coun cil. The three other cities receiving recognition in this contest were Bluffton, Mt. Vernon and Wabash. These cities fall In the 5000 to 10.000 population group. In recognition of this each city was awarded a certificate by the National Safety Council. A brief item in the American City tells about the new sewage treat ment plant recently put in opera tion at Bloomington. This modem plant was made possible through a PWA loan and grant of $400,000. Repayment will be made through assessments on water users.
