Joe Penner and Oakie
Star in Lively Picture / J I ^.Collegiate,” at the Earle, Is Popular Musical Film—Stepin Fetchit Gets Rousing Reception. BY E. de S. MELCHER. IF IT be treason tc say that Joe Penner is funnier without his duck-then let this be treason. In “Collegiate,” the New Year smash at the Earle which the youth of Washington attended yesterday )n a oody, Mr. Penner exhibits a new humor, a new thumb, a new smirk, a new gurgle, a new gargle or something. He attacks what remains of that ancient and honorable stage play, "The Charm School,” now remodeled to At the antics of not only thp Ppnnpr. but also tbe Oakie. the«2* Sparks, the young Langford and Betty j Grable (who has wound Mr. Coogan around her little finger)—he attacks all this with a new quantity of acting oats and is to I our way of think ing far funnier than he has ever Ibeen before. Mr. Penner is not, however, the only good thing in this sprightly musical film which at yesterday’s first sitting was re ceived with roars, howls, sighs, cries, | whistles, screams and cheers. Jack _ 1. J . i _ i U . Frances Langford. ... , ., . ‘hero of that well remembered story in which a young man inherits a girls' school and remodels it according to the swift, agreeable methods of the day. In stead of prodding the young ladies’ craniums with reading, writing and arithmetic, the svelte young things are instilled in the art of “rythmic” ♦whatever that is) and taught how to croon, holler and neigh like A1 Jolson, Rudy Vallee or even Mr Oakie him self, who at one particular moment might be Mr. Jolson himself. Mr. Oakie behaves himself very well In the girls’ school except for one dreadful moment, when, believing that Miss Langford doesn't really care for him. he reaches for a bottle, and Is caught putting away a pint by the horror-stricken heroine In person. Apart from this maddening misde meanor, he goes glibly through the various dormitories followed by the Messrs. Sparks. Penner. Gordon and Revel (tunemakers) and the cop who wants to know who the dickens Joe Penner is. When Joe Penner finds out at last that he is Joe Penner the plot is practically solved. Paramount has fingered this theme With the utmost devotion. For the eweet young head of the school they have borrowed Frances Langford from the radio and made her one of the new young starlets whose face from now on will probably adorn many a Central High student’s dressing bu reau. From somewhere else they have seized upon that new small bombshell, Betty Grable. who we imagine may be the angel of many a Western High student's dream. And from some where else they have hired the most hideous collection of old hens in the •world and typified them as school marms—a state of being which we should think would rouse all hand some schoolmistresses to small if not larger fury. Paramount has also collared that cagy clown, Ned Sparks, called him “sour-puss” and flung him into the midst of this “charm school.” His reactions to his unfamiliar environ ments are among the best things in the film. And as he treads around on the heels of Messrs. Penner, Oakie and Lynn Overman, the cup of fun in this lively charade seems to be overflowing and you understand why there is not only “standing room only” advertised outside the theater, but also why there is not even standing room only inside. In other words. Mr. Payette’s Earle has what is known as a howling suc cess on its hands this week. * * * * T)ART of this is due, of course, to the presence of Stepin Fetchit in person on the stage—one of the Pox film company's most popular people. Mr. Fetchit, you will recall, has never moved faster than a snail during his film career and the mere effort to raise his voice has often plunged him into sorrow. When he isn't sleeping (according to his creed) he is wishing that he was sleeping and the chances are that his most popular role would be one in which he could nod gently throughout the entire film. Mr. Fetchit (who off stage is prob ably as alive as any one else) exhibits evidences of life in his appearance this week at the Earle and had only to walk out on the stage to receive the kind of a reception that even the great Garbo might envy. His act, too, was not the disillusioning kind. Keep ing very much in character he behaved the way he does in his cinemas, only once doing a dance to show that he really can huriV when necessary. His encores consisted of sending out his valet to bow for him! Another excellent act was presented by the Pollygogs who come from the French Casino. They deserve every bit of the enthusiasm shown them yesterday. A handsome young singer, a dancing act, and bright-eyed Miss Seiber complete the bill. * a * * VlfE have also heard this very ” minute that the Paramount Newsreel boys pulled “a fast one” on their brethren and that they not only got the President’s speech last night up to New York by 11:30, but that if you go to the Earle or the Metropolitan right now you will see and hear snatches from it. That's what we call nice and fast going 1 Capital's Drama Qroups Cash Prizes to Be Offered in One-Act Play Tourney—“Benevolent Blackmail” to Be Done at Roosevelt. BY HARRY MACARTHUR. MONEY, which always has had some uncanny manner of stimulating interest, is doing just that for the 1936 one set play tournament. Cash prizes are being offered this year for the four plays entering the finals of the tourney, and there also will be special honors for players giving outstanding performances in the preliminary con tests. The tournament will open at Roose velt Auditorium Tuesday, February 4, and the entrants will continue to pa rade their wares on February 6, 8, 11 and 13. The finals will take place February 15. Maud Howell Smith is arranging for Judges for the preliminaries, and Dorothea J. Lewis, chairman of this year’s Tournament Committee, is ar ranging for judges for the finals. Mrs. E. K. Peeples, director of the Com munity Center, is chairman ex officio ef the committee. Applieations should be entered at once, as they will not be accepted later than Monday, and provisions can be made for acceptance of only the first 20 registrations received. Even before they got to the dress rehearsal stage the people in charge of the play had to find a larger theater for “Benevolent Blackmail.” It seems Btate societies and organizations with in Government circles evinced so much interest in the drama about job jug gling and other political whatnot that an auditorium had to be found with more seats than the one first selected, 6o the play will have its world premiere January 21 at Roosevelt High School auditorium. Mrs. Miles C. Allgood, wife of the former Representative from Alabama, has been recently added to the cast, which is headed by William E. Bryant and Paulette Parent. Howard F. Went worth is assisting Technical Director i" Edith I. Allen and Harrold A. Wein berger is directing the play. The Columbia Players are all ex cited over having their first repertory play in rehersal. which, after all, is something to merit a bit of excite ment. The play is Chekhov's “Uncle Vanya,” to be presented at Pierce Hall, January 15 and 16, almost a year after the players' original pro duction of the drama. Aurora Poston is directing and Eileen Fowler, Dorothea Lewis, Dorothy M. White, Elizabeth Dyer, Arthur Westover, Wayne Bobst, Wade Robinson, Joe Bourne and Oliver Anderson are in the cast, which is the same personnel as in last year's production. Jane Lasater Rubey's sets are the same and Maria Howard's costumes are the original ones, so it’s real repertory. The Pierce Hall Players are forming the first Washington Verse Speaking Choir, under the direction of Elinor Cox Karsten, next Tuesday evening at Pierce Hall. At this first meeting Miss Karsten will outline her plans and there will be a brief talk by Elizabeth Shepherd, who will tell of her experience with choral groups in Europe. Miss Karsten. who is well known here for her acting work with various local groups and with the National Theater Players, has just completed a special training course in choral speaking in New York, studying under Miss Marjorie Gullan of London, founder and developer of this branch of dramatic expression in Scotland and England. r Genealogical Society to Meet. Dr. Henry S. Jacoby will speak to night at the monthly meeting of the National Genealogical Society at the Y. W. C. A., Seventeenth and K streets. His subject will be “Some Recent Genealogies.”, Woman Starves With Food Nearby, $30,000 in Bank Brother-in-law Is Found Near Death in an Ad joining Room. By the Associated Press. NEW YORK, January 4.—More than $30,000 in the bank and a plentiful supply of food nearby, Mrs. Anna Cloutier, 60, was found dead of starva tion yesterday in her three-story Bronx home. The shrunken body was found in a bed in an unheated room. In an adjoining room, unable to leave his own bed, her brother-in-law, Amedee Cloutier, 60, was found shaken with palsy and near death from star vation. They were discovered when neigh bors summoned police after water pipes burst, in the Cloutier basement and began flooding basements. It was believed that during the cold wave, both were taken ill and neither was able to help the other. There was a supply of bread, meat and milk in the kitchen, but appar ently neither was strong enough to reach it. Where and When — Current Theater Attractions and Time of Showing.

Jack Oakie Featured in New Film — “King of Burlesque” Also Stars Baxter and Alice Faye. THIS is Jack Oakie week in town. Although "The King of Bur lesque." able, tuneful and agreeable musical film now playing at Loew's Fox, stars Warner Baxter, and a very good Baxter at that, the kind you remember from the days of "42nd Street,” since Mr. Oakie is playing in two new films at once It is evident that Oakie-ism is the main factor in the week’s entertain ments, and next to Lily Pons is prob ably the seasons greatest surprise. There was a time, not so long back, when it was apparant that the great Oakie was slipping. His cheeks had spun apart and jagged jowls had made their somewhat unwanted appearance. Females said he lacked what it takes, and the huskier race began to think him less comical than in his earlier days. Now suddenly Oakie pops up again as bright as a new dime and an im« portant factor to any film which might happen to have him. While in "The King of Burlesque” he does not step on Mr. Baxter's excellent toes, he does give a bang-up perform ance—and we. for one, are inclined to wish him from now on health, happi ness and more and more cinemas. At the risk of a leer from the intelli gentsia, we may almost go so far as to say that one of these days Oakie (if he keeps himself down) may be come one of the really important actors. Hie new film in which he and Bax ter and a lot of other nice stars ap pear this week at the Fox has mucic that will last. Fats Waller, who also will last; Alice Fay, who, while she may not last, at least is easy to look upon; Nick Long, jr., who dances like nobody’s business; a night club which is probably the peer of all such things, and Baxter as the despairing producer who time and time again gets it in the neck. Hie combination of all these people and things, plus a good enough story and Mr. Baxter’s per suasive manner, makes the film some thing that you will definitely want to see. The stage show presents Leon Na vara and his orchestra in music and whatnot that rings the gong with a vengeance; a Charlie Chaplin, as done by Frank Conville, which is just about as good as the gentleman in person; the Lynn Burno Revue, which has some good dancing done by Dorothy Arden, Florence Hedges, Violet West and Teddy Wren—and—here the boys from the sports world are having their Inning—A1 Schacht—clown, comic and whatnot—in an act that people want more and more and more of. Mr. Schacht also plays base ball. E. de S. M. CAUSE AND CURE OF WAR PARLEY TO DRAW MANY Delegates From 11 National Women's Organizations Will Attend Conference Here.

For instance, passerby at 2112 F street occasionally he notes of a well-played ac i these days, all because some #o a young Utah school teacher , piayea good Samaritan to a sheep ■ herder. The latter was marooned on a i mountain side, unable to move a port | able camping outfit which turned out 1 to be not so portable as It was de I dared to be. The school teacher gave j him and his outfit a lift, at the end j of which the sheepherder insisted upon some form of payment. He fixed upon his accordion as a medium of exchange, and nothing could change his mind. The girl finally took it, in the mood if not with the manner of one acquiring a white elephant. To make a long story just one par agraph longer she took it home, learned to play it. replaced it finally with one costing $650, moved to Wash ington, is studying with one of the country's best teachers, and praottces regularly—and pleasantly. * * * * PLOT? Many of the parents in the Broadmoor Apartments still are wondering whether they were the victims Thursday of a misunder standing or a carefully laid juvenile plot. The Christmas vacation ended on that day for most of Washington’s school children, but a number of those who live in the Broadmoor apparently had told their parents how fortunate they were in having the rest of the week. The dark plot came to light when the evening papers were delivered. * * * * HEIGH-HO. STENOGRAPHERS in the miscel laneous tax unit of the Bureau of Internal Revenue are making many and varied guesses as to why a rep resentative of Uncle Sam should want to know their exact heighth. One pert miss surmised that the of ficials wanted to know how many yards of stenographers are employed. Others, with a hopeful gleam in their eyes, feel that the statistician may have been a “scout” from the "Follies” or the "Scandals.” * * * * “NOM.’* JOHN A. REMON, general manager J of the Chesapeake & Potomac Telephone Co. tells a story about two small boys, about 10 years old, who recently went into one of the dial ex changes and asked to be shown through the office. The chief operator, thinking to put them at their ease, and incidentally learn how much they already knew about the telephone, asked them if they had dial telephones at home. ‘'Yes’m,” they replied in unison. The chief operator hesitated about her next question and decided to make it as simple as possible. “Do you dial your own numbers?” she asked. "No’m,” was the answer. "You don’t?” "No’m—other people's.’* * * * * KEY MYSTERY. A MEMBER of an old Virginia family, a lady of rather ad vanced years, who makes her home at an Alexandria hotel, returned from a walk.the other afternoon. She was tired and complained of an aching foot as she approached the desk and requested her key from the clerk. She was quite annoyed when the attendant told her it was not there. In no uncertain tones she demanded that a search be made for the miss ing key, which is of rather generous proportions, with a fiber disk with the room number attached. While everybody, from bellhop to manager, joined in the key hunt the woman sought an easy chair in the lounge. There, to relieve her aching foot, she removed her shoes. The operation brought immediate relief to every one. The missing key fell out of the shoe. * * * * SLANGUAGE. The Army Air Corps Training Center, though young in years, is rich in idiomatic expressions and aeronautical slang. Officers arriv ing in Washington from the center use such phrases as: "Get eager," meaning to strive to the utmost: "gun," to gun anything is to have a waiter get if for you: "rats," those little rolls or balls of lint and dirt which accumulate upon the floor and are most noticeable when standing at attention during an in spection of quarters: "mice," little rats: "pop it out,” to expand one's chest to the limit: "spin in," to fall down or get excited; "storm," the condition one is in when he is ex cited and doesn’t know what he’s doing. * * * * DENTAL NOTE. yj^HILE prowling in the snowstorm recently. Operative 13 came to the corner of Missouri avenue and Third street. As he watched he opened his mouth, reached up calmly and re moved his teeth—uppers and lowers. He put them in his overcoat pocket. It was one of those things which could not be allowed to go unex plained—even by a stranger. The operative asked why. Said the gentleman, quite without a trace of annoyance in his voice: “My teeth were chattering, and I saw no reason why I should make myself feel any colder than I am.' NURSERY SCHOOLS AWAIT PERSONNEL Qualified Workers on Relief List Lacking—Ten Centers Were Being Operated. Reopening of District nursery schools as a program financed by the Works Progress Administration has been postponed until Monday, due to delays in finding sufficient number of qualified workers on the relief list for assignment, officials announced yes terday. Ten nursery centers, five white and five 'colored, formerly were operated by the District out of its relief funds. They were abandoned in November, however, to save funds. Officials say 10 dieticians, 10 teachers and 10 nurses are needed. Seven teachers, three dietitians and four nurses have been found on the relief list. The number of nursery schools to be opened will depend on approval by the Board of Education of using prac tical dietitians and nurses to fill out the force, officials said.

Work on Movies Begins In “Break-Down” Process Each Department Must Have Script to Pre pare for Shooting and to Estimate Probable Expense. BY MOLLY MEBBICK. HOLLYWOOD, January 4 (N.A.N.A.).—Just what does money mean on a Hollywood lot? How much does a studio have to consider tht finan cial side of a production, even If the story is "tops" in its opinion? The answer Is obvious when I tell you how a motion picture Is produced and what distribution and business consideration is given the script before it is put into actual producton. - , To begin with, the procedure Of sending copies of accepted motion picture _a- at_1_J - _ M ....i..,. Am a__ - OVlipbe IU UIV itVCIUO MUIVUO wow. I partments Is known around the Holly wood lots as “breaking down” a script. Before the wheels of production can turn, all the skill and Ingenuity of a score or more departments may be called upon to find Jpst what their particular parts of the story will cost the company when the I'm is made. Imagine, for Instance, what a tre mendous task it was to "break down” the script of “Anthony Adverse.” Here’s the way It’s done: As soon as the stenographic depart ment finishes copying the script, copies are sent to the following de partments: Camera, casting, electrical, location, sound, property, transporta tion, dance, music, wardrobe, make-up. cutting, publicity and perhaps one or two others that I have forgotten. Each Plots Activity. The head of each department pro ceeds to read the script an# make "plots” of his particular activity in the story. The cameraman, for instance. Is interested In day or night scenes. It may make a lot of difference in the cost, whether day scenes are such that they have to be filmed at night on a stage (and this has often hap pened), or whether the scenes call for certain lamps and changes of light during the action. He must consider walls and the costumes that will be photographed against them. He must understand how to place his camera angles and just how much this action will cost, both in workers and equip ment. The casting director gets the script and proceeds to visualize it as he reads. Trooping through the script are “old men,” "bankers,” "social dowagers.” “cutthroats,” “toughs,” “cowboys,” etc. He makes a list of the people he thinks might do these parts well and proceeds to call them and dicker about financial arrange ments before he suggests their names as possible players in the picture. Why? Because he knows the costs of his particular department must be kept down to a certain amount. Other Problems Involved. Imagine, then, the problems that confront the "location man,” who has to find typical outdoor scenes to fit the story; the “sound man.” who must reproduce wha'tever sound effects the plot calls for; the “property man," r who has to produce anything from a Victorian antimacassar to an ancient Egyptian vase. After these apparently simple mat ters are settled, think how the mem bers of the picture personnel feel if their "art” is neglected in putting a story together. Imagine how the “dance man” feels if enough convinc ing spots aren’t made for his perfectly drilled Hollywood beauties. He’ll fight for three minutes in the picture, be cause his job may depend on it. Then we have the talented ones who write music for pictures. They i feel that the picture should really be written to display the charm of their musical numbers. The men and women who create screen wardrobes are another group who consider their work mighty im portant. And rightly so. What would some of the film great look like if they weren’t dressed by artists? These people study the defects of the beau ties they dress and do everything in their power to hide them, while they bring out the charms that might be hidden if their clothes weren’t de signed by artists. • Make-up is Important. Make-up artists, too. play an im portant part in films. Many an ordi nary looking person has been trans formed into a youthful, raging beauty by the man who, patiently and with great 'art, paints a face on her and gives her those luxurious eyelashes that nature may have forgotten to add to her charms. If this gives you a rough idea of just why Hollywood studio workers are en titled to a long vacation or a minor nervous breakdown once a year, you'll be a step nearer the inside of a lot than you have been before. After all these things are fought out and settled, after estimates have been handed in and scenes and plot cut down to fit them, we have the present day motion picture as a result. And ! it’s something that we may be justly proud of in the end. Perhaps all this striving and bargaining helps to make a finished film the smooth, well-bal anced product it is. At any rate, it's ; Hollywood, with never a dull moment for any one even remotely connected i with pictures. I (Copyright. lM.'ifl, by the North American i Newspaper Alliance. Iac> No Criminal Prosecution Is Planned, U. S. Attorney Says. No criminal prosecution will reeult from the grand jury investigation into the disappearance two years ago of $7,000 in bonds from the local hotel room of Henry O. Hart, former accountant for G. Bryan Pitts, it was announced yesterday. Assistant United States Attorney Charles B. Murray said the jury was unable to determine whether the bonds were stolen, or, If stolen, who was responsible. Shortly after the jury completed its quiz of Mrs. Lucille Fuller, long sought witness, yesterday afternoon, Hart was called into the jury room. He had testified at length some time ago. When the jury finished with him, Murray announced the investi gation was closed. He later divulged that no grounds for indictment had been found. Bonds Found in Baltimore. The bonds disappeared in Febru ary. 1934, while Hart was ill. Hart reported the loss to police but heard nothing of the securities until last October, when they were located in Baltimore lr. the possession of en at torney there. They were traced back through sev eral hands, Murray said, but no crimi nal action could be shown. Witness Conies From Miami. Mrs. Fuller came here from Miami. Fla., to testify. Hart accompanied her to the oourt house and waited outside the closed doors of the grand jury room while she was being ques. tioned.
