Centennial Fund, Anti-Crime Measure Before Legislators AUSTIN. March 27. (AV-An ti er tme and centennial appropriation bills held high rank on calendars Wednesday as measures passed by one branch of the legislature recen ed preferential consideration In the other. More difficulty was anticipated In the house on the anti-crime bill than Movie Sidelights CAPITOL In a screen play admirably suit ed to their talents. Ann Harding and Robert Montgomery- are again seen together at the Capitol, Brownsville. Wednesday and Thurs day in Metro - Goldwyn - Mayer’s “Biography of a Bachelor Girl," directed by E. H. Griffith. This Is the first time this popu lar team has been co-starred since the outstanding hit from the same studio. “When Ladies Meet.** The new picture has all the charm and appeal of the former one. all the sophistication and bright dialogue, with the addition of some of the most breath taking outdoor scenes ever flashed on a screen. As Marion, sophisticate and art ist, Miss Harding has never appear ed in a more suitable role. And the part of Kurt, hard-boiled young editor, was surely made to order for Montgomery. The story treats humorously of a worldly young woman trying to decide, between the pleas of her admirer and the threats of her ex admirers, whether to write the story of her life. QUEEN '.The Lemon Drop Kid,’’ shows Thursday only at The Queen, Brownsville. With Lee Tracy In the title role, and Helen Mack, William Fraw ley and Minna Gombell heading the suppotring cast, this new Pa ramount picture is a lively, hu morous and often dramatic story of a fast talking, self-assured guy who, following an unpleasant es capade at the race track, is forced to settle down to the quiet of a small town. This he attempts to do with varied success until a charming and unsophisticated girl tries to reform him and make him take a job at fifteen dollars a week. At first the “Kid” rebels, but when he discovers that his little "coun try girl" means a great deal to him. he resigns himself to his fate and actually takes the job. The “Kid" Is resourceful and since work has never agreed with him. he plans a counter plot of his own with results that bring him hi? greatest happiness and his deep est sorrow. In "The Lemon Drop Kid" you will find an expert blend ing of comedy and drama that car ries the picture along at a fast pace, culminating in an unusual climax. faced it in passage through the sen ate with ‘only one dissenting vote. The bill, proposed by the senate crime Investigating oommittee. would merge existing state police agencies into a central bureau, designated a state department of public safety. A commission would decide policies. The bill to appropriate funds for a Texas Centennial commemora tion next year was passed by the house after a bitter fight for 13. 000.000. An additional $50,000 was placed on It by the senate finance committee, while a substitute propos ed by Senator Frank Rawlings of Fort Worth would increase the total to $3,550,000. Consideration of the bills oould be delayed in either house, however, if sponsors of constitutional amend ments chose to force votes on pend ing proposals. Presiding officers in both branches have ruled the amendments hold parliamentary j priority. Submission of prohibition repeal was proposed in one passed by the senate and pending on the house calendar. As revised by s house com mittee. it wmild submit the direct question of repeal with regulation left to the legislature. The senate, however, voted to limit sales to sealed packages, and to outlaw con sumption on premises of sale. An amendment to authorize legis lative establishment of a teachers retirement plan, sponsored by Sen ator Clay Cotten of Palestine, was pending in the senate. Several al terations approved In two days of debate tended to restrict the scope of the propoeed pension. Proponente thwarted an attempt to convert it Into a general old age pension plan. • but faced renewed efforts of Sena tor Joe Hill of Henderson and others to broaden it. Should the house clear its docket of senate bills .pending business would be enactment of a drivers li cense law, on which debate was started Tuesday. Applicants for a li cense would be required to pass an examination, and those under 16 years would not be eligible. The fee would be 25 cents. Proponents obtained defeat of numerous amendments, but 25 were pending. An amendment adopted, however, eliminated a section by which the proposed vehicle commis sioner, administrator of the act. could have revoked a license with out a hearing. Another declared as agents of the state in issuing li censes chiefs of police, sheriffs and constables.
