SUNDAY MOVIES
GET 0. K. OF JURY
Arlington County Finding
Upsets Precedent Set
in Year 1779.
It took a seven-man jury less than
three minutes yesterday to decide
that showing movies on Sunday in
Arlington County, Va., is “morally fit
and proper.” The case was heard in
Arlington County Circuit Court.
As a result of the jury’s findings
Judge Walter T. McCarthy entered
a declaratory judgment, which for
the first time under this form of
court procedure placed a new inter
pretation on an old “blue law” en
acted three years after the United
States Constitution was signed.
In a suit styled the Fairfax Corp.
vs. Howard B. Fields, sheriff of Ar
lington County the plaintiffs, who
operate the Wilson Theater, 1730
Wilson boulevard, showed that the
exhibition of Sunday motion pictures
was not a violation of section 4570
of the 1936 Virginia Code: This
section of the code is the law which
has been carried over from 1779,
Thomas W. Phillips, attorney for the
corporation, said.
The procedure in court yesterday
was unusual in that instructions to
the jury were given before arguments
were made.
Sheriff Closed House.
The suit grew out of a closing ac
tion taken by Sheriff Fields following
the Wilson Theater's showing of a
motion picture on Sunday, July 4.
1937, with alleged threats of arrests
of owners and operators if the theater
opened on subsequent Sabbaths. The
theater has remained dark on Sun
days since that time, but attorneys
said it will be open next Sunday
afternoon.
Section 4570 provides: "If any per
son labors on Sunday at any trade
or calling * * * except in household
or other work of necessity or charity,
he shall be deemed guilty of a mis
demeanor and upon conviction be fined
not less than $5.”
In the court action brought yes
terday, described by attorneys as a
“friendly suit,” the Fairfax Corp.
lawyers contended motion pictures are
legitimate and proper means of recrea
tion and amusement. The Virginia
Supreme Court of Appeals has held
the purpose of the mentioned section
is to give the public rest from cus
tomary labor. It was contended that
the word "necessity” should be con
strued in the light of present-day
Standards.

URGES STEPS TO BAR
SOCIALIZED MEDICINE
Rev. Wilfred Parsons Tells D. C.
Dentists to Take Strong
Individual Action.
Strong individual action to prevent
the socialization of medicine was ad
vised last night by the Rev. Wilfred
Parsons, dean of the Graduate School
of Political Science at Georgetown
University, at a meeting of the Dis
trict of Columbia Dental Society in the
Public Health auditorium.
“By meeting collectivism as indi
viduals," Father Parsons said, “com
plete collectivism can be prevented.”
He pointed out that the present
tendency of the professions toward
socialization Is part of a world trend
away from individualism. Both Com
munism and Fascism, he declared, are
caused by the failure of individuals to
cope with economic and social trends.
Speaking specifically of the medical
profession, he told the dentists that
only by recognizing their individual
duties to society could socialization of
medicine be averted.

GAMES FOR PARTIES
i i
The game of forfeits gives pleasure to
old and young and can be made the most
exciting part of the evening fun. First,
the Leader collects a small article from
each player, such as a ring, pen knife,
handkerchief.;; any small object will do.
They are redeemed by paying a forfeit.
Here are a few:
Say “Mixed Biscuits” ten times rapidly:
Yawn until you make someone else yawn:
Walk around the room, holding your
ankle in one hand.
Sing a medley of one line each from five
different songs.
Blow out a candle, while blindfolded.
(Turn the victim around several times
after you show him the location of the
f candle::: some fun!) ,
You’ll think of lots more.

HOUSEHOLD HINTS
(hading la Q&ear!
How often we say that, when we really
mean that our clothes are not in order. This
lacks a snap and the collar is soiled on that.
Someone spilled coffee on your tweed skirt
and your blue dfess is at the cleaner’s;
So it is true! Nothing is READY to wear!
We can’t expect to be well-groomed unless
we put intelligent care and time into our
wardrobe. Buy clothes suitable to the life you
lead. If you are a home maker and you go to
market and drive the children to school, it
three-piece tweed suit is your dish. With odd
sweaters and blouses, you are set. With
specially smart accessories you are set for
shopping in the city; If most of your evening
activities are entertaining in your own home
and going to neighborhood affairs, then
simple crepe dresses made in soft becoming
styles will give you the most service; To be
suitably dressed is to be well-dressed — but
' —remember to press, clean and take that
stitch in time!
