AT THE MICHIGAN
A Universal picture, starring Alice Brady. with
Anita Louise, Douglass Montgomery. June Clay-
worth, Alan Mowbray, and Hedda Hopper. Also a
Once this gets under way it is sprightly enough,
although it has little that is novel to offer.
Hettie Tubbs (Alice Brady), cook in a railroad
construction camp, inherits half a million dollars
from an Englishman she once befriended. With
the aid of this fortune she sets out to further the
romance of her niece (Anita Louise) with Philip
Ash-Orcutt (Douglass Montgomery), son of the
railroad-owning, aristocratic Ash-Orcutts.
Most of the fun comes when she, not yet a very
accomplished protege of her English lawyer-friend
(Alan Mowbray), returns from Europe as Lady
Tubbs, the guest of honor of the Ash-Orcutts.
The most depressing scenes are disposed of
early. Alice Brady, in attempting to do anything
besides portray a flighty, half-shrewd, half-scat-
terbrained woman, is very bad.
Douglass Montgomery gives the usual impres-
sion of still being somewhat damp behind the
ears. Anita Louise is pretty. All are satisfactory.
Most interesting sequence: Lady Tubbs riding to

"PEOPLE WILL TALK"
A Paramount picture with Charles Ruggles,
Mary Boland, Leila Hyams, and Dean Jaggers.
Another pleasant comedy, but equally lacking
in novelty. Charles Ruggles and Mary Boland are
two of the most capable comedians in Hollywood,
but this is obviously an uninspired effort, although
they make most of it amusing, of course.
When their daughter (Leila Hyams) and son-
in-law (Dean Jaggers) fall out over "another
woman" the two set out, by quarreling themselves,
to show the youngsters how foolishi they are.
The wandering plot eventually has Charles
Ruggles himself placed in compromising cir-
cumstances with the woman, being mauled badly
as referee in a charity wrestling, show, etc.
If you gave odds of 100-1 (as anyone would feel
confident in doing) that Charles Ruggles would ap-
pear drunk in one or more scenes, you win.

TALY'S ACTIVITY in East Africa, Signor Mus-
solmi said recently, is to impose a "harmonious
regime" on Ethiopia. And he added:
We consider our mission in Ethiopia is
sincerely and definitely to abolish slavery and
promote the work of civilization.
It is interesting to note that Il Duce has discov-
ered a new means of obtaining "harmony" and
promoting civilization in Ethiopia.
A chemical has been developed, says an an-
nouncement from Rome, which will burn up the
feet of the Ethiopians, who fight barefooted. And
even if the Ethiopians wear shoes, the announce-
ment adds, "this chemical will burn off the shoes."

THAT OBNOXIOUS and infinitesimal pest de-
signated in the dictionary as a "certain dip-
terous insect of the family Culicidae," but better
known as a mosquito, is again the object of search
and research. Authorities inform us that the first
extensive notice given to these tiny nuisances
was at the end of the nineteenth century, when
certain facts pointed conclusively to their rela-
tion to yellow fever.
Now it looks as if some 999,975 female mosquitoes
had outwitted all efforts of the Des Plaines Valley
mosquito abatement district to investigate the
migratory habits of these ladies. And until this is
decided it will not be clear just where the erad-
icators should focus their efforts.
To be specific, 1,000,000 mosquitoes in an out-
lying Chicago district were sprayed with green
dye and turned loose. Catchers with bared arms
were assigned to 40 radius posts for five minutes
each day and the nippers who accepted the
lure were caught and held for observation. Since
the beginning of the experiment, in May, those who
got bit state that only 25 of those subjected to the
wearing o' the green officiated. The others ap-
parently concluding that it was just an old skin
game, are still at bay.
Despite the dismal results, the county au-
thorities in Illinois sprayed the mosquitoes in two
other marshes with. red and purple dye. Again
they were unsuccessful at keeping them "down on
the farm." Perhaps the former variety should now
be sought in Russia. Maybe those dipped in royal
purple have been foolish enough to fly to the
bayous of Louisiana and join the share-the-welt
plan. Anyway, why not equip the next batch with
neon lights? In the dark that would give both
the mosquito and his victim an even break.
Killers In Illinois And Michigan
THREE tight-lipped young men, the oldest-25,
the youngest 19 years old, walked to the elec-
tric chair in the Menard penitentiary early Tues-
day morning. The mental agony which they suf-
fered as they went to their death was a harsh spec-
tacle, as all executions are, but not half so cruel
