That Jan Garber hat lost none of the
charm which earned for him the role
of featured violinist with the Philadel-
phia Symphony Orchestra while still in
his 'teens, will be demonstrated here
when the "Idol of the Airlanes" brings
his celebrated dance, radio and record-
ing orchestra to the Met through the

Listeners to Garber's handling of the
violin can readily understand whence the
derivation of the term "singing Violinist",
us his skillful fingers literally make the
instrument sing or weep at their behest.
The band leader, however, is not with-
out his more humorous moments as he
puts away the violin and captures the
praise of his watcherg with his comedy
unties while leading his band in the
tuneful arrangements that make his

fame in the entertainment field as the

Playing on the Met screen, also, will
be Martha Raye, the gal with the bath-
tub mouth in "Hideaway Girl," which
will be hilarious, no doubt.
Zane Grey's famous American novel,
"Outlaws of l'alouse," a yarn of the im-
mortal Roosevelt Rough Riders and the
battle of San Juan Hill, will reach the
Kirby Theatre screen next Saturday un-
der the title, "End of the Trail" with
Jack Holt in the starring role,
Surrounded by an excellent cast in-
cluding Louise Henry, Guinn "Big Hoy"
Williams, Douglas Dumbrille, George
McKay and Gene Morgan, Holt appears
as Dale Brittenham, a life-loving west-
erner who is among the first to answer
the call to arms in the war of '98 against
His adventures on the battlefield, his
rivalry with Williams for the love of
Miss Henry, a Red Cross nurse, and his
fight to make himself worthy of her love
when the cannon are stilled and the boys
come home are interwoven in the pictur-
ination of the bloody hundred days war
during which the United States emerged
as a world empire.
Erie Kenton, who directed "End of
the Trail," doubles in brass as director-
actor, portraying the role of "Teddy"
Roosevelt in the thrilling battle scenes
depicting the crucial conflict on San
Juan Hill. Harold Shumate is credited
with the screen adaptation.
Because of the fact that "Camille," in
which Greta Garbo is reputed to have
loved Robert Taylor, was held over, it
throws the otherwise perfect schedule of
"Scene in the Dark" column all akilter.
And instead of all the stuff about "Gar-
den of Allah" being printed last week,
it should be run this week, but that
would be a rank case of spinning one's
wheels. So let us say, that this week,
at the Loew's State Theatre, on Main
Street, two doors north of the Met,
there will be a cinema shown, starring
Marlene Dietrich and Charles Buyer,
called "The Garden of Allah."
The story leads up to a thrilling cli-
max and an unexpected denounK-nt
which it would be unfair to reveal lu re.
An excellent cast enacts the leading
supporting roles. The ever dependable
Basil Kathbone i^plcndid as tliff*'ttiys-

Terrace On Monday
King of Jazz Is to Play a
One-Night Stand in
When you're "tripping the light fan-
tastic" at Rice Hotel Terrace, Monday
night, to Paul Whiteman's music and
you find yourself and your partner the
objects of a sudden, speculative gaze
from the,' maestro, don't get self-con-
scious and stumble. Just keep on "swing-
ing" nonchalantly, or waltzing, as the
case may be Whiteman is men;ly fol-
lowing his .favorite biitid-staiul: sport of
watching your dancing to see just what
part of the country you're front, lie can
tell by your steps and your tempo.
On many occasions through the years,
the King of Jazz, by watching the crowd
on the floor while directing bis orches-
tra in a dancc program, has tested his
ability to pick the westerners, the south-
erners, the boys and girls from Chicago
and those who learned to step in New
York. According to him. there's a dis-
tinct difference in the way people dance,
depending on where they came from.
•Westerners, says Paul, have the fastest
tempo and are addicted to swinging
steps. By "swinging" he means the gen-
erally-accepted version of' the word be-
fore swing music in these past few,
months meant hot notes from a combina-
tion of trombones, saxophones, and
Southerners dance more slowly. They
like to glide, and southern girls cling to
their partners more than the dancing
damsels from other sections of the coun-
try. Perhaps that's all a part of the tra-
dition, he says, that southern girls are
more feminine and more of the clinging
vine type than their'northern sisters

Asked to Lecture
By Peace Group
Recognizing the link between youth
and peace throughout the world, the
Emergency Peace Campaign has in-
vited three British students to come
to America for a speaking tour, as
part of a larger winter program
which is sending over 300 prominent
Americans into a thousand cities to
address nearly 1500 meetings in the
cause of peace. The three young Eng-
lishmen, who are prominent abroad
for their work in behalf of peace, are
expected to land in America January
6, and will remain here for nearly two
Charles Alfred Coulsoti, one of the
students, is a Fellow at Trinity Col-
lege, Cambridge. He holds an M.A.
degree from Cambridge, and is joint
chairman of the Youth Section of the
Council of Christian Pacifist Groups.
For five years, Mr. Coulsoti has been
a lay preacher and has participated in
a speaking campaign in English col-
leges. At present he is lecturing in
mathematics at Leeds University.
Voicing his opinion on peace and
war, Mr. Coulson said: "The problem
of world peace at the present time is
but one aspect of a wider problem—
the problem of division. We know, or
at least we feel, that we were in-
tended to live in harmony, and that
there is a fundamental unity "in all
life; yet somehow we fail to achieve
this unity when we are faced with
particular issues ... the root cause is
m the same ... it is ultimately a moral
"problem with which we have to deal."
The second of these young Eng-
lishmen is Rowland Leonard Miall,
of Welwyn, Hertfordshire, Mr. Miall
recently participated in a Trans-
Atlantic debate which was a feature
of -the closing day of the Harvard
Tercentenary. He presented the neg-
ative side of the proposition: "Re-
solved: That national economic prob-
lems can be solved without inter-
nalibnal. co-operatiori;1"1 ■. ,j I.; v i v ,
Mr- Miall has been president the
Cambridge Union Society and of the
Cambridge University Socialist Clubi
He, holds the office of vice president
of tht Cambridge Uriivei-sity Law So-
ciety, and received a degree ctf B.A.
with honors, this year. He had three
years' debating experience at . Cam-
bridge Union, and was a delegate1
from that society to various other de-
bating societies. He was one of the
British delegates to the International
Student Service's Annual Conference
in Sweden in 1936. Recently, he whs
appointed editor of "The Cambridge
Review" for the coining term This it-
one of the greatest honors which can
be bestowed on a Cambridge student.
H Morris-Jones balances the scale
against three representatives of Cam-
bridge. He is a student at Oxford
University, and a candidate for the
Methodist ministry. He lias spoken
on peace in the Oxford Unigjti, among
other places, and has had eight years'
experience in public debating, public
speaking and open-air speaking. He
lives at Caernarvon, North Wales.
serves Maestro Whiteman, moves as
though he's on guard and wary about
being influenced too much by the ro-
mantic music, And his partner, if she's
used to Manhattan dancers, falls into
this tenisichorean attitude ami keeps Iter
distance of a few inches.
Quite different is the foreigner's
•reason for keeping his distance. The
Latin type, particularly, feels that if
there is a distance between the dancers,
the dancc is more graceful. But he gives
to the effort complete absorption and
lends the impression that this dance is
the most important thing in his lift' ittid
his partner the most charming woman
he has ever beheld.
