fit, not only to Jackson County, but "to every
state in the Union that is made a prey of kid-
napers-."
It is true that the mother and sister of the
convicted man were very bitter about the out-
come of the trial. Such a thing is to be expected.
It is likewise true that, as they claimed, the coun-
try-wide newspaper agitation against crimes of
this nature had a great deal to do with the out-
come of the man's trial. Not however, in a man-
ner of miscarrying justice. That one point can-
not be overlooked. The man was sentenced after
a fair and impartial trial. But if he must serve
as an example to others in order that theacrime
of kidnaping might be done, away with, he has
only himself to thank.
It is to be hoped that other juries will use the
same square judgment as the men in Missouri.
Every time, a kidnaper is caught he should be
given, after being found guilty, the severest pen-
alty provided by the law, until those active in
such criminal channels learn that the American
people refuse to put up with such tactics any
longer. Kidnaping will be wiped out, and the re-
cent action in Missouri is a definite step in this
direction for which that state may be justly
proud.

A L SMITH'S retort to Herbert Hoo-
ver's campaign prediction that,
should the Democrats iae elected, grass would
grow in the city streets, was: "You know what
I'm going to do? I'm going to buy Times Square
and put up a miniature golf cour'se."
Evidently, the former president was wrong for
when Franklin Delano Roosevelt spat on his
hands and went to work, things began to happen
and they happened fast.
A depression-ridden people, saturated with op-
timistic hocum concerning the "I Spy" game that
prosperity was playing around the nearest corner,
began-after three years of overcast skies-to
see the feeble glowing of a silver lining. The
moral effect was amazing. The stock market sky-
rocketed. Hooverites put away their lawnmowers
and went so far as to declare, really quite em-
phatically, that Mr. Roosevelt was doing a splen-
did job of inaugurating the Hoover program.
(Evidently Mr. Hoover DID have a program).
Socialists grudingly admitted that the President
was doing a great job of exploding their dynamite.
Even pessimistic die-hards mumbled something
about there being a possibility that conditions
might improve-"gradually, of course."
At the present time, the man in the street, the
Hooverite, the Socialist, and the die-hard, how-
ever, are more or less agreed on one thing: That
the principles underlying the National Industrial
Recovery Act, the ray of hope that has a swearing
administrator, Hugh S. Johnson, and is respon-
sible for several babies having been christened
Nira, are sound.
There are those who maintain that the Presi-
dent is exceeding his constitutional powers, there
are those who point a shaking finger to the fact
that Mr. Roosevelt, in eliminating child labor, has
:one in one fell swoop what the American people
refused to do by rejecting a constitutional amend-
men) and what the . Supreme Court thumbs-
downed in judicial review of legislation; but the
general principle of shorter hours and more men
at work has met with very nearly universal ap-
proval.
Let us look for a moment at the latest hand
n the President's new deal. Speaking logically,
ie will either make his contract-the end of the
lepression-or he will not make his contract-
ontinued depression. These are all the possi-

Judging by the cast and their individual per-
formances this show should have rated three stars
easily. William Powell, whose manner of play-
ing, incidentally, is becoming more and more dis-
tinctive with each picture he makes, has the sit-
uation well in hand, as usual. Since he first ap-
peared in a bit in "Beau Geste" half a dozen
years ago, it would be hard to point out a single
actually bad performance recorded to his dis-
credit.
Margaret Lindsay, a very decorative and satis-
factorily smart young person, presents a very
creditable feminine lead performance, while Ar-
thur Byron, Gordon Westcott, and Ruth Donnelly
are all distinctly better than average. To cap it
all, the show has a clever and unusual plot.
Still, something very clearly is lacking. An an-
alysis of "Private Detective 62" shows all the ele-
ments of a firstclass melodrama; yet of genuine
excitement the picture has very little.
The weakness seems to lie with the playwright.
There is a definite inability on the part of the
audience to place the various characters in their
respective categories, due, apparently, to insufFi-
cient build-up -and background for the several
parts.
Powell is an investigator whose withdrawal from
diplomatic service has been of such a nature as
to make it difficult for him to find another
position. He goes into partnership with a thick-
headed private detective, builds up the latter's
business, and re-establishes himself financially
only to see his partner branch out into illegiti-
mate practice. Powell falls in love with a wealthy
girl, a prospective victim of his partner's gang-
ster associates, and takes up her fight against the
mob.
There is something thin about the whole story
-more than simply that the plot is unreasonable,
for many an impossible plot has been carried by
clever production. Here it seems to be more the
lack of atmosphere, the failure of the setting
and the cast to fuse into a, unified whole. Too
often in this show changes in character and
twists of plot occur with insufficient justification,
taking the audience by surprise and failing to
carry the action forward.
All that, however, cannot discount the master-
ful performances of both the leads and the char-
acter players in the show. Second to Powell's Ar-
thur Byron's characterization is particularly sat-
isfying, while Ruth Donnelly, who will be remem-
bered as the comedy secretary in "Blessed Event,"
does some fine bits also.
"Private Detective 62" is a good show, and our
only complaint is that, with the individual per.
formances as good as they are, it should have
been better.

SCREEN LIFE IN HOLLYWOOD
By HUBBARD KEAVY
HOLLYWOOD-"Tugboat Annie" brings to the
screen again the popular co-starring team of
Marie Dressler and Wallace Beery in a picture
which is aimed to capitalize on their success as
"Min and Bill."
The film play, adapted from a series of stories
by Norman Reilly Raine, who quite frankly admits
he had Miss Dressler in mind when he created
the character, is suited to the talents of both
stars. It tells of Miss Dressler's efforts to further
her son (Robert Young), only to be thwarted by
Beery's intemperance.
Annie, played by Miss Dressler, finally is re-
duced to servicing the city's garbage dumps with
her tug Narcissus, the boat she so dearly loves.
Her son, a thoroughly unsympathetic character,
deserts her because of his father's incorrigibility,
but there is a happy reunion when the son's ship
is saved front loss at sea through the heroism of
the father.
Beery may not have relished playing this role,
but he is good enough actor not to reveal his,
personal feelings in the matter on the screen.

reel shots, all of which have been fitted neatly
into the story.
A gal reporter is kidnaped while trying to wring
a confession from a gangster's moll. The photog-
rapher (who previously has met and fallen in
love with her-while covering the California
earthquakes) saves her. And by manipulating hi
pictures he makes it appear that a member of
the gang set fire to a brewery. By this time the
sob sister remarks rather tritely that the "game
is in her blood," so she marries the newsreel
man.
William Gargan and Frances Dee have the
leading roles.
A Washington
BYSTA NDER.
By KIRKE SIMPSON
WASHINGTON-The sweep that carried Ala-
bama and Arkansas, historically arid communi-
ties of the southland, into the list of states de-
claring for repeal of constitutional prohibition was
a matter of great comment on the Washington
political front.
It brought joy to Postmaster General Farley,
who has constituted himself or been assigned
by higher authority as chief Democratic party
spokesman for the repealer; but it did not sur-
prise him or any one else in Washington who had
been keeping an eye on news from the South.
It is a safe bet that if Farley, as national
chairman, had been very doubtful of the outcome
in either state he would not have committed him.
self so whole-heartedly to the campaign to line
them up in the repeal column.
Nor would the occasion have been presented so
adroitly for President Roosevelt to reaffirm his
own 100 per cent support of the party platform,
including repeal, to a southern audience. Why
risk a rebuff which might have injured adminis-
tration prestige, however slightly, at a critical
moment in the national recovery program?
Knew the Situatiol
Farley was in an exceptionally good strategic
position to know what was what among Alabama
and Arkansas voters. Since inauguration he has
been having intimate stories of the political situa-
tion pour into his ears from every state by the
army of government job seekers with which he
has had to deal. He undoubtedly got a lot of ad-
vance "low down" on the shift of prohibition sen-
timent in both states now publicly confirmed by
the repeal vote results.
Yet there were other signs which made it
equally patent to less well-informed observers
that both Alabama and Arkansas were headed to-
ward repeal ratification. When the activities
of former Senator Tom Heflin became so marked
by stony silence on that subject, it was a clear
indication that he, on the ground, saw what was
coming.
"And when the Democratic leader in the Senate,
Joe Robinson of Arkansas, placed modification
of the Volstead act to permit the sale of 3.2 beer
so close to the top of his list of Democratic
special session accomplishments under platform
pledges, it was not without significance as to Ar-
kansas sentiment.
Sees Job Endangered
Incidentally, the Alabama and Arkansas repeal
action again refutes the theory of Jouett Shouse,
head of the anti-prohibition association, that leg-
alizing beer might impede the actual accomplish-
ment of repeal. Mr. Shouse stood aloof during
the beer debate on that ground.
Now he predicts he'll be out of a job before New
Year's. There won't be any prohibition to be
against, he thinks.
The President
Somewhere in the intensive program which
marked his return from his yachting vacation,
President Roosevelt probably will find time to
inspect the conservation corps camps in the vicin-
ity of Washington.
If those in charge of the camps are able to
induce the chief executive to do so, he will lunch
with the boys and talk to them afterward, prefer-
ably at one of the few camps where disciplinary
troubles have occurred.
The President had so many irons in the fire

when he got back to his desk that it was dif-
ficult for him to plan a day free for the expedi-
tion.
Yet if there is any part of the complex recovery
program under his direction with which more
than any other he would like to come into per-
sonal touch, undoubtedly it is those forest camps.
Director Robert Fechner of the conservation
corps forces expected to have some 300,000 young-
sters and veterans on his rolls by July 1, but
it was a week or two later before a detailed
check was possible due to local enrollments.
By the end of the fiscal year, however, the
scheme was running smoothly with normal turn-
over in personnel and a degree of cooperation
between the various government departments in-
volved had been established.
Counciliator
Fechner was selected for the directorship be-
cause of his organized labor connections. The ap-
pointment was designed to off-set possible labor
objections to the plan. As it happened, Fechner
had been dealing with the conciliation aspects of
the conflict between capital and labor for many
years.
That stood him in good stead when it fell to
his lot to induce co-operation between governmeni
agencies as far apart in their philosophy as, say,
the war and labor departments.
