DANCY ANSWERS
(Continued from page 1)
Indictment and then discredit the
commissioners' court and the of
ficer making the complaint. The
hue and erf of politics would have
been sounded to the four corners of
the earth. I will say in retrospect
I think we would have made a j
mistake to have filed these com
plaints, and with all due deference
to the recommendations of the past
grand Jury’, until I am shown that
tber*' Is some official duty to file
criminal complaints t shall not do
so. These matters have been called i
to the attention of the grand Jury
•nd I am not trying to reflect I
Upon past grand juries, because "
feel that the majority of them j
wanted to da their duty, but as It
takes nine to present an indict
ment, opposition, by crying politics
has always been able up until the '
Scat grand Jury to keep an Indict
ment from being made.
•T also fear past grand Juries have |
been imposed upou. Just as I feel,
that the present grand Jury was
Imposed upon in being induced to;
take this slap at the commissioners’ j
1 court.
“I want it understood that I am
not anxious for indictments, also
that there is no human being for
whom I have *lt in for.’ that I wantj
to «rc go to the penitentiary, but I

fBtakes indictments and takes the
jtnpes to bring it about, then I am
for such indictment and for the

“Filing reports is just as much the .
Sworn official duty of the officer
as to do anything else. To illus
trate making reports is Just as much
the official duty of the sheriff as)
to make an arrest when a warrant
is placed in his hands.
Raps Rumor
"I use the sheriffs office as an i
Illustration because he is an officer;
who does his duty in both respects.
“In fact for years we have had |
only two officers, with whom we
have had trouble and the common
talk »t the court house w as that the
reason their reports w ere not made ;
was because Judge Dancy was trying I
to force them to make these reports I
“On reading the report of the I

comparatively no effort had been
taken to collect through civil suits.
There have been 10 civil suits filed,

lays. We filed a suit in December,
1922. got a trial in the district court
in January. 1923, and collected the
money In 1928—practically six years.
The same officer under like facts
and under the identical same law,
owes some two or three thousand
dollars more to the county, on
which we have suits filed and which
I anticipate will take five or six
years to collect, during all of which
time, the defendant officer, will have
the opportunity to get him a com
missioners court elected that will
cause the suit to be dismissed. In
fact this very thing was tried
•gainst me during the time this very
suit was pending.
Grand Jury Is Medium
‘The article (1607) referred to
does not apply to counties having
a county auditor as this county has
had for the past 10 years. Any at
torney who will take 60 minutes
time to investigate will so advise.
The county auditor law applied to
counties having 35.000 inhabitants
or more, according to the 1920 cen
sus (Art. 1645*. and according to
the 1920 census we had more than
1,000 in excess of the number re
quired.
"The county clerks in cmmtiaa
without an auditor do keep a fi
nance ledger as referred to by the
grand Jury, but this county, having
an auditor, the auditor keeos all the
books relating to finance and I will
testify that Mr. Bishop has done
his duty 100 per cent.
"But it is no part of the duty of
the auditor or of the commissioners
court to make criminal complaints
against other officers who fail to
do their duty—in fact we all take
the same oath of office—and if it
were. I fear that many good men
, would refuse to consider accepting
said offices.
"There is only one body particu
larly suited to make officers walk
the chalk line and that is the grand
Jury and if future grand Juries will
follow the precedent set by the one
just adjourned I feel that a wonder
ful forward step will have been tak
en looking to making the Cameron
county court house the best in the
state of Texas. But after All there
Is but one only way to have straight.
honest and efficient government
and that is to elect men to office
who will do their duty.”

SCENE FROM WAR PICTURE
Leading players in a scene from “All Quiet on the Western Front.”
opening at the Capitol today.
fl MOVIE |
^SIDELIGHTS V
CAPITOL
Once in the proverbial blue moon
there comes to the screen a picture
before which all critics oe motion
pictures must stand silent; a pic
ture which proclaims that the
screen possesses powers inherent ir.
no other medium of artistic ex
pression: a picture which appeals
with equal strength to the intel
ligence and to the emotions.
Such a picture is All Quiet on
the Western Front," Universal'.*
super-production of Erich Maria
Remarque's famous novel, rhich
opened at the Capitol theater today.
There have been war pictures
which were primarily spectacles
There have been war pictures which
were primarily romances. There
have been war pictures which were
primarily melodramas. "All Quiet
on the Western Front" is primarily
the story of youth-the youth of
all nations-in war. It is the story
of one youth who symbolizes In
himself the fate of all youth_
comrades and foemen... cast into
the flaming maw of war.
Bv chance, and the genius that
guided the pen of Erich Maria
Remarque, the central figure of
“All Quiet on the Western Front"
is a German. But nationality means
nothing. The hero is the "unknown
soldier" of all nations .the epitome
of all youth that suffered and died
in war. or suffered and came back
not the same, to a world that had
passed them by.
The story of "All Quiet on the
Western Front" is poignant in its
simplicity. It is the story of Paul
Bamner, transformed from a school
boy in a German village to a soldier
m the trenches of the Great War
Before he had begun to live, all
that makes life worth living has
been snatched away.
He is tortured by brutal discipline
He learns that uttermost meaning
of the privations and pains of the
body, and the more awful suffer
ings of the soul. One by one. he
sees his comrades wounded or slain.
He goes home for a brief visit. .
and finds that even his home and
his loved ones have changed in
his eyes. He is a stranger in the
bosom of his family, seeing him
self at last as a member of a lost
generation... of youth that has
never been allowed to live.
There are other moments_the
poignant episode of the French
girls: the deep meaning of comrade
ship forged and riveted in the
flames of hell; the primitive value
of food and drink and shelter in
any existence from which all se
curity has been swept away.
"All Quiet on the Western
Front" is beyond the power of
words to describe. It is technically,
artistically, and. above all. spiritu
ally—flawless. Universal has kept
faith with Remarque. ~here are no
concessions to what is known as
"movie."
AT QUEEN
A romantic story of youthful love,
spectacular musical numbers, hun
dreds of beautiful dancing girls and
an all star cast make “The New
Movietone Pollies of 1930.” which
comes to the Queen Theatre Wed
nesday and Thursday, an outstand
ing production since the advent of
audible pictures
It surpasses its predecessor. "The
Movietone Follies of 1929." in all de
partments with a greater cast and a
story which would stand on its own
merits without the elaborate trim
mings provided by the numerous
musical numbers.
The cast includes such favorites
as El Brendel, Marjorie White. Frank
Richardson. Noel Francis. William
Collier. Jr.. Miriam Seegar. J m.
Kerrigan. Yola D'Avril, Huntley
Cordon, Paul Nicholson and many
others, well known on screen and
1 stage.
William K. Wells, author of many
Broadway musical successes, wrote
the story and the dialog and it is
undoubtedly the best thing * e has
done to date.
Benjamin Stoloff. who directed
the highly successful "Happy Days"
"Girl From Havana” and "Speak
easy.” handled the megaphone and
has far excelled his previous pictures
The ensemble numbers were staged
by Max Schreck, Maurice Kusels and
GARY COOPER
“The Spoilers.’* starring Gary
Cooiier. opens at the Rivoli. San
Benito, Wednesday. Picturization
of Rex Beach's Alaskan novel.
Yfenny Dare, all well known on
Broadway as outstanding dance di
rectors They were placed in active
competition with one another in this
production and the result is the
1 most spectacular series of numbers
ever seen on any screen.
