OTHER EDITOR’S THOUGHTS ®
Ever since he have been listen-
ing to the radio programs of
George Burns and Grade Alien,
we have had the idea, gained from
their entertaining dia.ogues, that
Gracie was the dumb one of the
duo, but news reports the la a
few days indicate that we were
all wrong—George Burn-' is toe
dumb one. Why a man of means
—a man who counts his earn-
ings in thousands weekly in-
stead of a few paitry dollars,
should become mixed up in a
smuggling ring in order to **v«
a few dollars in import duiy
from the Government—and all
the time buying expensive jew-
elry for his wife—is more than
the average lawman can figve
out. There may be some ex-
cuse, well, not an excuse, but
one can see some reason for a
person of small means to attempt
to cheat—but a man who is rea’-
ly and has more wealth end
fame down the road ahead of
him, to enter into a shady p’an
to defraud the Government and
save a few dollais, as Mr.
Burns amittedly did, is beyond
the comphension of the average
person- George Burns and Gra-
cie Al eu have become two of
radio’s most popular entertain-
ers, but it would not be surprs-
ing to see their fahne and popu-
larity fade since Burns’ admis-
sion of being mixed up in such
a shady undertaking as smug-

INTERESTING BiTS ABOUT
Wa ter ,S. Hibbard is one of
the fine fellows one wants to
know and count as h s friend, lie
is broad of mind and scintillating
In conversation. He is the soul
of cogeniality and is a fine rep-]
resentative business man for the
city. We like him especially f"
the reason that when we cann I
back to Denison in 1913 afti
haying been away for some years,
Mr. Hibbard, then mayor of tie ,
city, gave us a warm welcome!
and told us Denison needed toi
have men hack home like our
selves. We were so overcome oy
the we.come that we really asked
him if he meant it, and he said
“Yes I do” in such a convincing
manner that our stock went up.
After all making people feel
that you consider them valuable
as citizens does more to make for
noble citizenship and loyalty in
the ranks of Denisonians than
anything else- Mr. Hibbard is a
hanker. No this is no build up for
u loan. It is the honest truth.
HOLLYWOOD (UP)—A dream
of a lifetime that some day he
would have enough money to en-
joy- complete leisure and freedom
to travel was realized three years
ago by Richard Barthlemess.
But today Barthelmess is back
at work in Hollywood because *-(■
found a life of leisure too diffi-
cult to follow. He was signed t<
play a leading role with Cary
Grant and Jean Arthur in a pic-
ture tentatively titled “Plane No.
4,” at Columbia.
"Leisure and money are splen-
did.” says Bathe'mess, “but
wealth alone cannot buy mental
suit-faction that one receives
from following his chosen profes-
Or in other words, Bathelmes?
has been drawn hack into picture
work. It was in 1935 that he
made his last successful pictuie,
“Four Hours to Kid,” and then
he took a turn on Broadway in
the play “The Postman Rings
Twice.” At the end of the play»
run Barthe’me-s announced his
ret’rcmont from the screen and
"I had worked hard on the
stage and in pictures since my
schools days,” he said, “and I
looked forward to the fulfillment
of a dream of absolute freedom.
Many of my professional objec-
tives had been attained. So 1 de-
cided to make that dream comej
“That’s why I severed all rela-
tions with the theatre and motion
pi-tures. And for the next three
years I traveled and loafed a"
over the world with my family
But it began to pall on me, and
gradually I realized that it was
impossible for me to stay awayi
from pictures any longer.”
|Shorty before the actor’s re-
tirement, one of his best produc-
tions was the aviation picture,
“Dawn Patrol,’ directed by Hew-1
When the Columbia officials
learned that Barthelmess was con-
sidering a return to pictures lie
was sought for the role in “Plane
No. 4,’ also an aviation picture
under the guidance of Hawks. |
"I’m as enthusiastic about cir |
tinuing my film career as I was
over my first screen rule 2<>
years ago," he added. "I’ve lmd
n chance to get a perspective or.
things and people, and now I hore

Headache, Sour Stomach, Colds,

Alka-Seltzer makes a sparkling
alkaline drink. As it contains an
analgesic (Acetyl - Salicylate),
It first relieves the pain of

ling to restore the alkaline bal-
jance, tends to remove the cause
when due to excess acid.
