"THE DEVIL IS DRIVING"
* *VERY BREATH-TAKING;
MOUTHS WATER AT WYNNE GIBSON
Gabby ................Edmund Lowe
Silver ...................Wynne Gibson
Pete .................... James Gleason
Nancy ................... Lois Wilson
Buddy..................Dickie Moore
Jenkins .................Alan. Dinehart
For a nice nerve-racking couple of hours, punc-
tuated with fun by Gabby (Edmund Lowe),
breath-taking shots of Silver (Wynne Gibson).
and wistful action by Buidy (unspoiled actor
Dickie Moore), we earnestly recommend "The
Devil is Driving."
To us at least, this is a new angle on racket
movies. It is the story of the proprietors of a big
metropolitan garage who are running a car-steal-
ing business on the side. Almost the first shot is
of a big touring car, engine roaring and tires
screaming rushing up the garage ramps to the
paint-shop for alteration before the police appre-
hend the thieves who will later sell it.
James Gleason is the competent, sarcastic fore-
man of the garage who is in on the racket be-
cause he needs money and who is killed in an
awesome way before the picture is half over. Ed-
mund Lowe is his William-Haines-like mechanic
and right hand man who, in the end, wins beau-
teous Wynne Gibson. Lois Wilson as Nancy, the
foreman's wife, and Dickie Moore (borrowed from
"Our Gang" for this picture) as Buddy, his son,
are not essential to the story but contribute ex-
cellent background.
All the atmosphere shots inside the garage are
clever, as are individual shots of men at work and
of a truck with a hidden bar. Nerve-racking
scenes: various people driving about slippery
streets at breakneck paces; Gleason's car careen-
ing improbably down the ramps on its last trip;
scenes of two of the crooks' cars just before they
meet head-on and hurtle down 20 stories through
an air shaft.
Typical good dialogue and acting: Gabby get-
ting facts about the foreman's murder from a
moronic roustabout. Silly shot: Dickie shooting a
lead soldier with a pop-gun to illustrate what will
happen to the murderer of his father. Typical
unexpected humorous shot: Gabby getting the
razzberry at his wedding.
Added: Paramount News; a college comedy,
"Keyhole Katy," screamingly funny because two
sororities and an old woman are involved in all
sorts of activities usually partaken of only by men
(and incidentally losing a lot of clothes); a car-
toon, "A Great Big Bunch of You," very musical
and with clever caricatures by Chevalier, the
Lucky Strike orchestra, Ted Lewis, Walter Win-
chell, the Boswell Sisters. The stage feature is
Chickola the Hypnotist, an entertaining charla-
tan who makes the common mistake of "playing
down" to a college audience and about whom
it is well to be skeptical. He will be here both
afternoon and evening through Saturday.

"Say It With Flowers"

There is no other article that will mean the same as
Flowers. Even though you are shy when in her com-
pany and hesitate to express your feelings you can
overcome your "lack of nerve" by sending her a nice
box of roses, sweet peas, gardenias, or assorted flowers
for her room or to wear. She understands.
THE UNIVERSITY FLOWER SHOP, I tLC., is always
supplied with the choicest of cut blooms. Their ar-
rangements are outstanding. If you require Flowers
for the ill, the bereaved or any other purpose, they are
as near to you as your phone.
If you wish flowers delivered in any other city,
the order can be delivered the same as here.

STRIPES

By Karl Seiffert
About 200 idlers invaded the Illinois state cap-
itol the other day and demanded; that the gover-
nor give them donations of public funds, says the
Chicago Tribune. It looks as though they'll have
to pay the police after all, if only to keep them
out of the governor's office.
The only ray of hope penetrating to the Long-
suffering Senate is the possibility of making use
of the popular laundry soap advertised by the
slogan, "Keeps them from running."

Statisticians have just prepared a table showing
