TAKE A VACATION
FROM THE HEAT!
THERE’S a way to take a
vacation from the uncom-
fortable heat without pack-
ing- up and leaving town.
In fact, the oppressiveness
of summer weather will dis-
appear the minute you step
into a c-o-o-1 Griffon Zefi-

IN KENTUCKY DRIES
UP DURING DROUTH
LEXINGTON, Ky., July 21.—Bryan
j Station Spring, famed in history as
i the spring from which Kentucky pion-
I eer women obtained water when Bryan
j Station fort was beseiged by Indians
in 1782, has run dry.
Story books have long chronicled
the bravery of the women who ran
the gauntlet of Indian fire to carry
water to the front while the men
staved off the attack of the Indians.
Replenishment of the water supply
enabled the pioneers to hold out until
| reinforcements arrived.
The spring, now enclosed by a
| memorial to the women, erected by
j the Bryan Station Chapter of the
I Daughters of the American Revolu-
j tion, ordinarily has an abundant flow
i of sparkling pure drinking water. The
; present stoppage of the flow, the first
jin the history of living persons, is
! credited to the prolonged drouth in
i Central Kentucky.

NEGRO VOTE RULING
WACO, July 21.—John K. Streeker,
chairman of the county Democratic
executive committee, is expected by
some to recall the county committee
this week and possibly rescind per-
mission which was given last week
for negroes to vote in the Democratic
primary Saturday because of the de-
cision of Judge Charles A. Boynton
ill San Antonio supporting the posi-
tion of .the chairmen of State party
committees and members of such
The Democratic. State Executive
Committee has refused negroes the
right to vote in primaries. The coun-
ty committee here merely invited “all
taxpayers to come forward and cast
their vote,” did not specify mention
the negroes, but it was clearly con-
strued here as meaning that, the ne-
groes could vote if they chose.

AUSTIN, July 21.—The valuation
of taxable property in Texas increas-
ed more than $70,000,000 during the
last year, according County Assessor’s
tax rolls filed with the Comptroller.
Figures on the valuation were pre-
pared Monday and are ready for the
Automatic Tax Board, scheduled to
The taxable property is estimated to
be worth $4,280,498,578. Only a few
tax rolls have not been filed.'
Compared with the estimate of a
year ago with a considerable number
of tax rolls missing, the increase is
$136,052,390. It is believed that this
amount, however, will drop to $70,-
The increased valuation may result
in a reduction of the ad valorem tax,
which is now 30c.
The school tax is 31c and the Con-
federate pension tax 7c, a total of 68c.

Bert Wheeler and Robert Woolsey,
inimitable clowns of “Rio Rita” fame,

June Clyde and Hugh Trevor with
100 trained singers and dancers, are
the featured entertainers along the
musical and dancing line.
Staye technicians have always
claimed that comedy was an elusive
factor and particularly hard to bring
out on the screen. Special “gag” men
are usually employed to insure the
success of the embryo comedy.
But Wheeler and Woolsey refused
to have an assistant when filming
“The Cuckoos.” Every “gag” used by
them in the picture is original. They
have worked together so long that
