rr, At the
Seeking something which the love
of many gorgeous women faled to
give him, the dancing "ladles man’
as played by George Raft In "Bo-
lero,” )s a pathetic figure even
though the role shows him at his
worst. Raft, In the colorful dance
numbers and dramatic scenes with
Carole Lombard, has the role of his
career as It In many ways corre-
sponds with experiences of hls own
“Bolero” is on tonight at the open-
ing of this theatre following the In-
stallation of new sound equipment,
the Western Sound equipment. Each
lady who attends the show tonight
will be given a corsage of sweet peas
In honor of the occasion.
As the dancer who climbs to fame
with a series of beautiful dancing
partners, all cast off In time, Raft
Is astonishing. It Is In the final
scenes of the picture that hls work
reaches Its heights, when with Miss
Lombard as partner, he dances to the
savage strains of the famous “Bo-
ler,” creating a new dance routine,
This Is the story of a young coal
worker who burns to realize great-
ness and let out the talent for danc-
ing which he knows to be hls. From
hls first opportunity In an “East-
side Joint” he steadily climbs to hls
goal, but hls ambition Is so over-
powering that he misses happiness
Raft Is ably seconded In the danc
lng scenes by Sally Rand, Chicago’s
world fair famous “fan dancer,’’ and
the beautiful Miss Lombard. Fran-
ces Drake, William Frawley, Gloria
Shea, also are In the cast.
The settings and background of
"Bolero" In a European locale, are
j among the most beautiful the screen
1 hwa-seen In a long time, and the In-
teriors are extie.ne'.y modem. All
together It Is a grand picture.
The chance* are all against trigger-fingered John Dillinger even it he has come out on top in his brushes with the law so far. There
was Jesse lames shown at left in a contemporary artist’s sketch, who operated successfully until Robert Ford shot him in 1882 to gain
reward of 130.900. A more modern gunman was ^.IdCh.pman
, reward of *30 900 A more modern gunman was Gerald Chapman (second from left) An escaped convict, he was hunted two years foi
robbery and murder finally was taught in Indiana, and then hanged in Connecticut in 1926. George "Machine Gun” Kelly (third from
left) terrorized the’southwest but the law finally “got its man,” and he was sentenced to life for kidnaping Charles F. Urschel of
Oklahoma. Officers hunting Dillinget (right) think history will repeat itself. (Associated Press Photos)

The following letter has been received by Mrs. M. L. Gunter,
Wheeler County Tax Collector, from the Comptroller of Public
Accounts of the 8tate:
To the Tax Collector:
"You will recall that from time to time since 1930, the Legisla-
ture has been suspending Interest and penalties on Delinquent
Taxes. Last May, the last measure of this kind was enacted, which
provided a 2% penalty o nail ad valorem taxes delinquent on Feb.
ruary 1, 1933. (later they Included the spilt tax payments which
became delinquent on July 1, 1933), if pair) by December 30, 1933,
and 4% penalty, if paid by March 31, 1934; and 6%, If paid by
June 30, 1934. After this June 30, 1934, expiration date, the old
law prescribing 10% penalties and 6% Interest per year, will again
be In foroe.
"This means that on and after July 1,1934, this year, the pen-
alty and Interest you will be required to charge will not be 6%,
but will include 8% interest per annum from the date It was first
delinquent, plus 10% penalty. For Example:
30% WILL BE ADDED TO 1930 DELINQUENT TAXES
24% WILL BE ADDED TO 1931 DELINQUENT TAXES
18% WILL BE ADDED TO 1932 DELINQUENT TAXES
(A delinquent cost will also accrue in addition to the above.)
With kindest regards, I am
“Yours very truly,
"GEO. H, SHEPPARD,
