WITH his work in a major role in “The Razor’s Edge,” the film based on the Somerset Maugham book, be hind him, Herbert Marshall is all set to return to the air for the summer in “The Man Called X.” Replacing the Bob Hope show last year, it climbed to fourth place in audience ratings of all HERBERT MARSHALL programs, surpassing many year round standbys. Returning June 18, it will be heard for 14 weeks on the Hope time Tuesday evenings. Leon Belasco will again be heard in the role of “Mr. X’s” aide. Screen tests were recently sent to Australia for a movie executive to see; bids for the services of several American actors resulted. One, offering $l5O weekly salary and transportation, was for the un named comedian in test 19, but the deal fell through. The “comedian” who’d played an unimportant part in the Mervyn Leßoy - directed “Without Reservations” was Pro ducer-Director Leßoy. —* Richard Long, the Hollywood high school lad who made his film debut in “Tomorrow Is Forever,” makes his second appearance in “The Stranger,” for International, an RKO release. He’ll play the young brother of Loretta Young. It’s Hol lywood talk that Long is considered one of the most promising juvenile actors to turn up since Lew Ayres leaped to stardom in “All Quiet on the Western Front.” For a scene with Jennifer Jones in “Duel in the Sun” the camera caught only the back of Gregory Peck’s head. “No one will recog nize you,” somebody told him. “Yes, they will,” said Peck. “Since those ‘Spellbound’ ads with Ingrid Bergman my neck is famous.” * Maybe Peggy Cummins wasn’t so wise when she agreed to come to Hollywood. First, there was the “Forever Amber” disappointment. Then she was announced for “Bob, Son of Battle”; that was canceled. The latest is that she’ll play the daughter in “The Late George Ap ley,” which seems like bad casting; the little Irish girl doesn’t quite fit as the stiffly Bostonian family, even though Eleanor Apley does finally break away. —* — Shirley Temple’s delighted be cause she’s to be starred in David 0. Seiznick’s forthcoming “What Every Young Bride Should Know.” It’s scheduled to start after she completes her starring role with Cary Grant in “The Bachelor and the Bobbysoxer.” - "The Big Noise” by Fielden Far rington (Crown Publishers) neatly takes the hide off the radio busi ness; insiders claim to recognize more than one famous character under another name. Mr. Farring ton is the announcer of CBS’ “The Romance of Helen Trent” and “The Armstrong Theater of Today”—that is, at present he is. Maybe after that book gets around he won’t be. —* — Barbara Bel Geddes, the young actress who’s one of the toasts of Broadway for her performance in “Deep Are the Roots,” will make her screen debut in “A Time to Kill.” Her RKO contract allows her to alternate between stage and screen. —*— “Right Down Your Alley,” a real ly different kind of quiz program, which has contestants bowling in a regulation alley to determine the amount of their prizes (usually they’re better at bowling than at an swering questions), has made a ten strike.

Among the precious things of South Dakota is the glorious sun it self, shining from its blue heaven almost every day in the year. And precious, too, is the clean, pure air of its plains and mountains. In its rich topsoil is the accumulation of ingredients that produce vast fields of wheat and corn and fruits. The lush grass of its ranges, where fat cattle and sheep feed, is a valu able store of wealth and content ment. Beneath the surface is a re serve supply of minerals, gold and silver, feldspar and lithium, lig nite and bentonite. As though that were not enough, South Dakota has mountains, trout streams, cabins in the pines, lakes, waterfalls, colorful canyons, the<s> fragrance of pine and spruce. The days are cheerfully warm in South Dakota, with the nights cool and refreshing. And the Black Hills have no mosquitoes to take away the pleasure of being out of doors. The famed Black Hills! Harney Peak rises 7,242 feet above sea lev el, the highest point in the United States east of the Rockies. Mount Rushmore has an altitude of 6,200 feet, and on it are sculptured the heads of Washington, Jefferson, Lin coln and Theodore Roosevelt. The largest monument ever conceived or executed Jjy man, the Mount Rushmore National Memorial was sculptured in heroic proportions by Gutzon Borglum, the late world-re nowned artist, and is called the “Shrine of Democracy.” A half-mil lion visitors come to the monument each year, and it is one of the most photographed scenes of all times. The figures on the solid granite face are carved in proportion to men 450 feet tall! North and south the Black Hills • . M. Q.

There is Cus ter state park, with 128,000 acres of mountains, gorges, lakes and streams, and 90,000 acres under fence, with buffalo, elk, deer, bighorn sheep, Rocky mountain goats, ante lope and other animals roaming unmolested. President Coolidge had his summer White House there in 1927, and left reluctantly. “I’m coming back,” he promised. Skeletons of Ancient Beasts. The Big Badlands covering a mil lion acres lie east of the Black Hills, and is one of the most important fossil deposits of prehistoric life. Fossils of alligators, rhinoceroses, hippopotamuses, saber-toothed ti gers, three-toed horses and other long-extinct animals are found here and displayed in most of the impor tant museums. East and northeast of the Bad lands, South Dakota is mostly roll ing prairie, falling to lowest levels in the northeastern part of the state. Big Stone Lake is the lowest point, 967 feet above sea level. The great Missouri river drains most of the state, cutting South Dakota into two almost equal parts as it flows through it. The agricultural treasure house of America is filled with corn, cane, wheat, oats, barley, flax and fruits from South Dakota. The vast plains area has a big dairy industry, and beef cattle are grown in all parts of the state. The production of live stock is the main feature of the state’s extensive agricultural in dustry. Hot Springs is the head quarters of horse-breeding, and is also known for its medicinal wa ters. At the annual Black Hills Round-Up at Belle Fourche, real cowboys from the surrounding cat tle ranges compete in riding and roping. The mineral resources of South Dakota include more than 60 basic minerals, including gold, silver, tin, zinc and others. Many of these de posits are not of economic impor tance at the moment, but will be come important in the future. At any rate, they remain in South Da kota’s Treasure House, a reserve supply whenever the nation needs them. At Load is the largest pro ducing gold mine in the United States.

A pageant descriptive of the Red Man’s history of creation is held each year at Custer and called “Gold Discovery Days.” Settlement of South Dakota came slowly, although the Verendrye broth ers, Frenchmen from Canada, vis ited the region in 1743. In 1804 and 1806 the Lewis and Clarke expedition followed the Missouri river through out the area. Fort Teton was estab lished in 1817 on the site of Fort Pierre, and in 1831 the American Fur company pushed a steamer into the territory. Both plainsmen and mountain men helped build South Dakota and bring to light its treasures. That there might always be intelligent ap preciation of the state, seven institu tions of higher learning, all state supported, were founded. They are the University of South Dakota, Ver million; South Dakota State college, Brookings; School of Mines, Rapid City; and four normal schools. There are five junior colleges in the state. Young, thriving and rich, South Dakota does not hoard its wealth, nor does it allow waste. Its treas ures are open to all—for the re serves are ample. ■ - , SEWING CIRCLE PATTERNS Summer for l/l/]atronA Slilrtwaiiter Sa Smart I - ’ * I*ll MW* 11'*' i V I ) 1 1359 Cool Nightgown A DELIGHTFULLY cool sum mer nightdress designed es pecially for the more mature fig ure.
