When Rossini Sneered
at Wagner's Opera Recalling an occasion when Ar nold Schonberg, “impressionistic” composer, came to London to con duct a Schonberg program with “explosive” results. Sir John Squire is reminded of Rossini be ing taken by friends to hear an opera by the new marvel. Richard Wagner. The dialogue, after the show, ran like this: Disciples—What did you think of it. Master? Rossini—l don’t think it would be fair to express an opinion without hearing it a second time. Disciples (eagerly)—And when are you going to hear it a second time. Master? Rossini (emphatically)—Never! Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets are an effective laxative. Sugar coated. Children like them. Buy now! —Adv.

WNU—M 11—31 Don't Neglect Them t Nature designed the kidneys to do & marvelous job. Their task is to keep the flowing blood stream free of an excess of toxic impurities. The act of living— life itself —is constantly producing waste matter the kidneys must remove fre— the blood if good health is to endure. When the kidneys fail to function as Nature intended, there is retention of waste that may cause body-wide dis tress. One may suffer nagging backache, persistent headache, attacks of dizziness, , getting up nights, swelling, puffiness under the eyes—feel tired, nervous, all worn out.

STAR if f DUST I|| 1 Ai.ovie • Radio J j ★ ★ I | ★★★By VIRGINIA VALE*** js THE millions who havej read and loved “The Ad- i ventures of Tom Sawyer” j will rejoice that it has been brought to the screen almost intact. A few memorable scenes of the classic of boy hood had to be skipped, but the important ones are all there, the whitewashing of the fence, Muff Potter under suspicion of murder, Tom’s startling appearance at his j own funeral. Filmed in Technicolor, the tones are subdued and pleasant, making the town and all its inhabitants | of some sixty years ago look entire ; ly natural. There was a great to-do a year ;or so ago over David Selznick’s country-wide search for just the right boy to play Tom. Finally. ; Tommy Kelly, son of a WPA work er, was found in New York. Every ! one who sees the picture will surely be glad that Selznick passed up the i precocious actors of Hollywood and waited until he found Tommy. For Tommy Kelly fits perfectly the character of Tom Sawyer. All Hollywood is talking about the great change in Katharine Hepburn. The roustabout comedy that she in dulges in for her new picture, | j “Bringing Up Baby," has affected her manner in private life. No long ler is she aloof and haughty. No longer does she scurry away as if frightened, or very bored, when co workers approach.
