haven’t got these things is be
cause we just haven’t put our

places—to entertain guests. We
need good places to meet in the
evening and talk and read and
play cards or other games. They
don’t have to be big, elaborate
places, at least not to start with.
If we can just get them started,
they will grow.
The best way to get civic pro

community^ clubs, for ijn the

interested in woring for better

Before coming to Hollywood, j
Bob worked in an Aberdeen radio j
station verbally advertising dog j
food ,on the all night shift. In j
between commercials, he jock-;
eyed records on alternate turn- j
Darryl F. .Zanuck spotted Bob’s ;
stand-out work in ‘Mother Wore*1,
Tights,” and immediately selec
ted him for higher honors. Pro
ducer Robert Bassler asked for
him to be Peggy Cummins’ lea
ding man in “Green Grass of
Wyoming”, and before Bob knew
it, he wasi on a plane headed for
Lancaster, Ohio.
At “the most beautiful trotting
track in America” he learned to
drive a two-wheel jsulgy, Wfas
given faster and faster pacers
to handle, was entered in an
actual race, and filled in doing
der the tree-crowned slopes o
■ his love-making with Peggy un
der the tree-crowned slopes of

Returning to Los Angeles, he
got more sulky driving at the
Hollywood Park Track and then
' was flown to Kanab, Utah, to
learn more about t'he gallopers
j and to finsh up his love scenes

j Oscar Wilde At
; Wittiest In
j “Ideal Husband”
1 “| have nothing to declare but
j my genius—’
| Oscar Wilde at the New York
Customs House.
Out from under the tons of
I today’s best-sellers piling up at
j the doors of movie producers,
a srnjall 'literary work—written
in th form of a play about sixty
years ago—bids fair to become
i the basis of one the most talked
about movies of the year. It is
Oscar [Wptde;’s famous comedy,
“An Ideal Husband,” a new
Twentieth Century-Fox release
which, photographed in color by
Technicolor, stars Paulette God
dard, and now paying at the
Fox Wisconsin Theatre.
It was Wilde’s coruscating wit
that set him far above his con
tmporaries, together with his
satirical view of society as illus
trated in “An Ideal Husband.
This is the story af a bewitch
inggly beautiful divorcee, Mrs.
Cheveley (played in the film by
Miss Goodard), and of the havoc
; ghe creates among the darlings
j of society when she descends on
I them with blackmail in her eye
land marriage in her heart.
| Wilde’s ibrilliant epigrams
1 which pepper the film's dialo
gue so delighted Miss Goodard
that she had a number of them
printed in a brochure which she
! distribued among her friends as
j a souvenir of her trip abroad
'to make the London Film Pro
'■ duction with producer-Dirctor
Alexander Korda. Anomg the
epigrams Paulette chose are the
j following:
“To love oneself is the begin
ning of a life-long romance.”
“Fashion is what one wears
oneself. What is unfashionable
is what other people wear.”
“Youth isn’t an affection. Youth
is an art.”.... “Romance should
never begin with sentiment. It
should begin with science and
end with a settlement.”-“One
should alawys play fairly—when
one has the winning cards.”....
“Nothing is so dangerour as be
ing too modern. One is apt to
grow old-fashioned quite sud
denly.”_Women think "that
they are making ideals of men.
What they are making of us are
false idols.”-“A perfect wife
is a genius in the daytime and a
beauty at night.”
