the waist-line to the neck this season. Cow Crisis Serious dissatisfaction is felt in cow
circles at Mr. Elliot's claim that it was milk that made him what he is today. An apology

plant an Egyptian Mummy to see what comes up? Address of Welcome Report from Low's

Poles, 6 Swedes, 4 Mexicans, 2 Negroes, 2 Chinese, 4 Marx Brothers and Kong. The Manager
says that when the new Czecho-Slovakian director arrives we will start on our big English
production "Merrie England", in which he will get me a lovely part walking in and saying
"Hurray" with 5000 other girls. P.S. Even Garbo may come over after she has finished her
last Hollywood feature: "Gimme the lot or ay tank ay go home." $60,000 Sir T. Beecham
foretells that the broadcasting of music will ultimately deprive conductors of their
occupation. But never fear, the more amusing ones will always get a job in the television.
