ASPERMONT — Stonewall count-
tv’s frist court house at old Rainier,
a few miles east of here, a ranch
house for nearly the half century
since It was built, sold at auction by
the sheriff two years ago to O. P.
Leonard of Port Worth, figured In
the courts again recently. Mrs.
Nannie Baldwin and Miss Blanche
Baldwin, former owners, brought an
unsuccessful suit to recover title to
the imposing stone structure.
CLARENDON — Another paved
highway for Donley county Is the
first major objective of the Clar-
endon chamber of commerce. The

At The Texas
Terror stalks a Hollywood studio!
Murder under kleig lights! “The
Preview Murder Mystery," showing
Tuesday only, is a swell mystery if
there ever was one.
The snow is an Intriguing bit of
film fare and exciting from start to
finish. Behind the scenes in Hol-
lywood Is the remarkable setting
for this picture. Practically the en-
tire action of the picture takes place
in a movie studio where actors are
going through their paces while
electricians focus their lights on
them, sound engineers swing their
microphones above them and the
by the Clarendon Lions club and
their viting to sponsor the reor-
ganized organization, scouting acti-
vities In this city are expected to
take on new life.

scape work has been done around

HEREFORD — Hereford high
school has received an exceptionally
good rating for the year, according
to the report of J. D. Wilson, depu-
ty state superintendent.
camermen photograph them going
about their business.
The story has to do with a newly-
found star whose first picture is
just being finished as we come upon
him. He has received notes threat-
ening his life, but friends and fel-
low-workers have laughed them off
as the work of a crank. The pic-
ture is previewed before an audience
that includes the star, director and
other members of the acting com-
pany — and when the lights go up
and friends turn to congratulate the
star, they find him dead—poisoned!
Police and the studio’s tireless
publicity chief go to work in an at-
tempt to run down the killer. Mean-
while, “shooting" of another pro-
duction begins. The first scene calls
for a pistol—loaded with blank
cartridges—to be fired at the lead-
ing lady. The actor pulls the trig-
ger; the gun goes off—and a mir-
ror behing the girl is shattered!
The gun contained real bullets—not
Hysteria grips the studio after
this incident. But it is nothing
compared to the hysteria that fol-
lows when first a studio policeman
and then a prominent director, are
found murdered. We’d like to tell
you the solution of the crime—but
that’s against the rules. Suffice it
to say it’s ingenious and exciting.
