MIGNON QUAW'S PICTURE
\ JUT WITH LOCAL PEOPLE
(Continued from Page 1)
A large number of local people took
prominent parts in the cast, indeed
everyone i n the film was from the!
Gallatin \allejr, where all the scenes*put
were laid- Fred Jackson as Grandpa
Little was the most prominent and
popular character, though in popu
! a rity young Peter Meloy of Townsend
i ran him a close second. E. H. Lott
c f the college extension staff, Miss
Mary A. Pinkney, an employee at the
college and little Margaret Cardon,
daughter of Prof, and Mrs. Cardon,
were the other leading characters and
all did remarkably well for amateurs.
In the dance scenes and other group
pictures many local people, both from
the college and the city took part and
it was easy to recognize such well
known characters and President andi
Mrs. Atkinson, Roy Martin and many.
The scenes of the film are laid in)
the Gallatin valley and here the films
fail to do justice to the valley scenery,
the vistas being vague and indistinct,
The applause from the audience was
very general throughout the picture
and most noticeable when Miss Quaw'si
name was flashed on the screen,
