DE QUEEN, ARKANSAS. FRIDAY, APRIL 7,1922
CLARA HAMMON
PICTURE UNDESIRABLE
Delegation of Citizens Wait on
Exhibitor and Notify Him Pic*
ture is Undesirable—Middleton
Refuses House, Threatened With I
Suit for Breach of Contract.
A traveling exhibitor brought
the picture portraying the troubles
and trial of Clara Hammon of
Oklahoma to De Queen Tuesday,
and covered the town with adver
tising announcing its appearance
at the Queen theatre Tuesday
night.
The announcement caused a
wave of indignation throughout
the city, and twenty-five or thirty
citizens gathered at the office of
Abe Collins to take measures ttr
prevent the showing of the pic
ture. After the meeting the citi
zens went to Ihe hotel where the
exhibitor was stopping and Will
Thomas, acting as spokesman,
notified him that it was the desire
of the citizens that the picture
should not be shown here.
However, it was the apparent
intention of the exhibitor to show
t l \* picture in spite of the protest,
but when he went to the Queen
Theatre he found that Manager
Middleton had locked the tloor on
him.
The pictuie wa> not shown.
Mr. Middleton hud set a price
on the auditorium that he thought
would be prohibitive in the first
place. He says that the exhibitor
now threatens him with a suit for
breach Os contract.
LOOKING FORWARD.
A. L. Middleton, manager of
the Grand Theatre, attended a
meeting of the moving picture
exhibitors of the state at Little
Rock, attended a banquet provid
ed for the occasion and discuss
ed the outlook of the big industry.
Ar attempt was made lo give
ihe exhibitors a demonstration
of the radiophone, which is creat
i ing so much interest all over the
country, but atmospheric con
ditions were such that the effort
j was a failure. Under proper con
ditions, one of these equipments
(would enable a De Queen indivi
dual or a De Queen audience to
listen to concerts, lectures or ser
i mons given in New York, Detroit
or any other distant points. Thou
) sands of these instruments are
. now in use, and are successful
I when atmospheric conditions do
not cause static electricity to In
terfere with their operation.
Manager Middleton is greatly in
terested in the wonderful inven
tion, and thinks that the rau'io
iphone will furnish the music of
The future for all film, houses.
I When the static difficulties have
been overcome Manager Middleton
expects to install a radiophone at
the Grand.

evangelist and his assistants held
a meeting at Chapel Hill. Today
they are holding a (meeting at
Lockesburg.
Evangelist Winans held a tre
mendously successful meeting
here last year and needs no intro
duction to De Queen. His home
is at Hugo, Okla., and he is a
graduate of the University of
Hard Knocks, and h’s education

exhaustible supply of ammunition,
which he is hurling against the
battlements of sin.

Powell, musical director, of
G-i.ii esville, Texas, who is a
graduate of the Moody Bible Insti

ture, yellow journalism, the di
vorce evil, mixed bathing, etc.
Evangelist Winans thinks the
present day is a testing time, and
on Sunday afternoon will make a
special appeal to all people to be
stable. He says present conditions
will eliminate the mollycoddle
and mushroom, but that all really
good men will weather the tem
pestuous waves of financial stress
and come through with colors fly

MAY CONTEST ELECTION.
! I
'I Several candidates and their
supporters believe that the unof
ficial returns from Tuesday’s city
election may not reflect the will
'jof the qualified voters, and it is
) asserted that contest proceedings
will be instituted if it is discover
(that the election commissioners
do not have the power to pass on
! the legality of the votes cast.
Checking up the tally sheets
(.with the list of poll lax payers
Thursday morning it was found
that 118 persons had voted whose
names do not appear on the list
of poll tax payers.
In ward one 44 appear to have
i voted who were not on the poll
'tax list; in ward two 45 names
were found and in ward three 48
names.
There were a number of other
voters whose names did not aj>-
pear on the poll tax list who were
thought to have become of age
since the time for paying poll
taxes.
A number of those whose names
.do not appear on the poll tax list
are known to have come to De
Queen since the 1921 poll tax list
was closed last July, and these
] may have have paid a poll tax
elsewhere.
] It is not thought there was any
' intentional illegal voting. Only
those who paid poll tax for last
year, or became of age since then,
; were entitled lo vote in the elec-
Some may have erroneously
thought that by payment of poll
tax this year they were entitled to
vote in the city election.
It is possible that a revision of
th? count may change the result
'in the mayorality contest and in
sevei’ai of the aidermanic con
tests.
The election commissioners are
exoected lo canvass the vote this
