The entire lawn was made a bow-

think its so.
Dock sez if Ben should mas-
ticate a single scruple more,
he’d flop his wings an’ soar
away to some eternal shore......
And, while the sober thinker
may concede that Dock is right,
Ben’s wife declares he takes a

NEW ZANE GREY-PARAMOUNT
PICTURE ON LOCAL SCREES
The clash between desperate out-
i laws and the law-abiding element in
, the vast cattle country of Southern
j Arizona provides the parallel of de-
struction and progress in the build-
! ing of the West, and is brought out
| in a colorful, romantic manner in
j “The Light of Western Stars” the
' Paramount screen version of the
Zane Grey novel of the same name,
( which is now showing at the Martin
: Filmed under the personal direct- ’
I ion of William K. Howard, the produ-
j cer of that cinema epic, “The Thur-
; dering Herd,” and featuring an all-
-star cast including Jack Holt, Noah
This is the auspicious beginning of
the dynamic plot which sweeps along
to a pulse-stirring climax thru an
amazing series of melodramic, kid-
napping, cattle-rustling and daring
deed of heroism.
Particular interest attaches to the
marvelous outdoor settings inasmuch
as the entire production was photo-
graphed in the mountain and desert
country of Arizona.
The State of Texas has a law for-
bidding drunken persons from driv-
ing cars. No law is kept absolutely
, rigid by any people, but here is a
i that ought to be kept much bet-

fed out by a drunken boob running

He is no less a murderer than the

he is drunk. You are just as dead

Beery and Billie Dove, “The Light of
Western Stars” is essentially an ad-
venturous-drama of thrilling action
with a compelling love interest that
takes the most unexpected turns.
When Holt, renowned for his ex-
ploits in the cattle country, makes a
vow during a rollicking spree to mar- !
ry the first girl who alights from the J
transcontinental train at El Cajon,
he little dreams of the exciting ad-
ventures that are to follow.
For across the mountain range,
terror has descended upon the peace-
ful town of Miramonte — terror
wrought by N'oah Beery, who has
ridden in with his bandit followers
to pillage and slay. And Holt is to
come to death- grips with Beery over
the girl, Billie Dove, who happens to j
arrive at the time of Holt’s madcap j
