"Dr. Socrates," the Warner
Bros, production in which Paul
Muni will open at the Palace
Theatre on Thursday and Friday,
is heralded as one of the moat
powerful dramas in which that
star has appeared on the screen.
The picture is 'based on the
popular novel by W. R. Burnett,
'author of "Little Ceasar," and
carries not only the dramatic
punch of the latter play, hut an
engrossing romance in which a
great surgeon succumbed to the
charms of a little Mtch-hikrng
Muni, in the role of .a once
famous .physician whose nerves
have been shattered by the death
of his fiancee, tries to bury him-
self in a small town. In this he
is successful until one night a
notorious bank bandit forces him
at the point of his revolver -to
dress a fwoupd he had received in
a battle with police.
The bandit and his band ter-
rorize the surrounding territory,
rob the bank and shoot up the
town. Among those injured is
a girl who had leaped from the
Muni, who has been dubbed
Dr. Socrates by a blustering
country doctor, a part played by
Robert Barrat, dresses the girl's
wounds and takes her to his
That same might Dr. Socrates
is again held up and token to
dress wounds. He recognizes the
place, calls for government ag-
ents, and by a ruse throws the
bandits off their guard, so that
the secret service men and their
posse are able to capture the
stronghold without blowing it up
and killing the kidnaped girl.
An® Dvorack plays the part of
the little 'hitch-hiker with whom
Muni falls in love. This is the
first time Miss Dvorak has play-
ed with Muni since she made her
first hit (with him in "Scarface."
"SO RED THE ROSE?
*T]ttE MAN FRQM GUNTQWN"
"The Man From Guntown,"
latest Puritan Picture release,
starring Tim McCoy, makes it®
debut at the Palace Theatre Sat-
urday only. It is the type of
Western in (which Mr. McCoy pe-
culiarly excels, calling for Un-
limited' fast action and gunplay,
with the star riding, fighting arid
shooting through sequences s$
exciting that the onlookers are
fairly carried,away into for lands,
of dangerous endeavor on this
.wings of adventure. The plot,
shows Tim first as a murder-
suspect, then as a grim avenger,
of his own: honor, and the dai-
tardly. assasination of the brother,
of the girl he loves.
In his determined battle .against
the members of the murder-ring^
he matches his wits against their
subtle arts, and his unerring
six-shooter -against the guns that
shoot behind and from ambush—
and wins! But before he attains
his goal, he passes through .£
flaming furnace of heroic trial,'
and only conquers by sheer nerve
and audacity. Those who sise -the.
picture will readily agree that in
point of massed thrills it regis-
ters as one of the sensations of

ment. More than 100 representa-

ness assocti&ions in field to be

The .census o£ Service estab-
lishments, which in 1933 included
