Food is an essential part of journalism, and though speeches aren't as important, they can be gotten away with, but journalists ain't no singers! The orchestras (Yes, we had an orchestra) played our national hymn, "On, Oi: U. of K.," and the voices raised to murder that tune should have been caged long ago.

PREVIEWS OF LOCAL SHOWS "DONT TELL THE WIFE" One of the most daring and fan tastic achievements of screen photo graphy and direction is seen in War ner Brothers' comedy of Parisian life. "Don't Tell the Wife," starring Irene Rich. It is the dance of the Silver Shafts. The ballet itself, arranged by Ernest Belcher, noted dance impressario, is performed by seven young women chosen for grace and beauty of face and form. Deft underfoot lighting creates an illusion of startling beauty. The figures seem to be floating wraiths the glittering bodies which are like floating butterflies, seem to be pierced by shafts of transparent light like silver arrows. The dance takes place in a Parisian night club, a reproduction of one of the most famous and elaborate of the cafes of the French capital. In support of Irene Rich Huntley Gordon, Lilyari Taehman and William Demarest are featured. Otis Harlin directed the story from the scenario of Rex Taylor. "Don't Tell the Wife" which is now showing at The Kentucky Theater. "MR. WU" The feature for the first half of next week at the Kentucky Theater Lon will be "Mr. Wu," starring Chaney who plays the part of Mr. Wu himself. Nothing we say could add to anything Lon Chaney plays in, neither could we detract from his perfor mance. Mr. Wu will be at the Ken tucky for four days, beginning STRAND THEATER "THE WOLF HUNTERS" The hand may be faster than the eye, as the old circus shell game man used to sing, but he didn't refer to the camera's eye. Proof of that is in a visit Saturday to the Strand Theater where the Rayart adaptation novel, of James Oliver Curwood's "The Wolf Hunters," will be featured. Quick shooting, hard hitting, rapid riding, all flash upon the screen with a clarity that is remarkable. Aside from the excellence of the story and the fine work of a notable cast, this picture is a mravel because of 'its photography. aggregation The cast is an consisting of Robert McKim, Virginia Brown Faire, Alan Roscoe, Mildred Harris, and David Torrence.
