Victories Give Roper Three
of Four Contests; Do Not
Play Again This Year
Playing In their own backyard, the
Roper High School boys and girls
took both ends of a basketball double
header from the P ymouth teams by
very decisive margins last Frn’ay
night in the cecond meeting of the
county teams this season.
The Roper lassies won the first
game 18 to 6 while the Roper boys
took the second fray, 23 to 9. In the
first double-header, played at the
Plymouth gymnasium earlier in the
season, the Roper girls won 24 to 0
while the Plymouth lads defeated
Roper 19 to 15.
La t Friday night’s defeat was the
second in five games for the local
boys but Miss Irene Dixon’s girls
have lost the entire five contests.
Though the Roper young ladies shut
out the Plymouth lassies in their first
meeting of the season, the Plymouth
girls managed to get six points last
Friday night even though they lost
by a three-to-one score.
Alton Mayo scored five of the total
points for Plymouth with Elmo Mayo
and Roy Manning counting a field
goal each. Peacock was the high
scorer for the Roper boys, counting
15 points. The Roper boys' guards,
Johnson and Davenport, with the aid
of Dixon at center, swamped Magee,
who heretofore has been Plymouth's

| “Tarzan’s Secret Treasure”
j Coming on the twenty-fifth anni
I vers ary of the filming of the first
■Tarzan'’ picture, “ Tarzan's Secret
Treasure” plays at the Plymouth
Theatre Thursday and Friday as one
of the most entertaining of the pop
ular series of pictures.
Johnny Weissmuller, as "Tarzan,”
again presents his breath - taking
feats of swimming underwater, div
ing off cliffs and swinging through
the trees, while Maureen O'Sullivan
offers a fascinating picture of a wife
who can do wonders into transform
ing a tree-house into a comfortable
home despite the absence of such
modern conveniences as electric re
frigerators, plumbing and electricity.
Laid in the world of the jungle,
peopled by wild animals and the
perilous traps and devices of nature,
the new “Tarzan” tale revolves about
Tarzan's association with the mem
bers of a scientific expedition who
come his jungle paradise and finding
gold, seek to permeate the ugliness of
civilization upon this untouched hav
en. After one of them attempts to
murder Tarzan. they abduct Jane
(Miss O'Sullivan) and "Boy,” (John
Sheffield), their adopted son, then
fall into the hands of savage tribes
men. But Cheeta, the faithful ape.
finds Tarzan, and the jungle mon
arch, together with his army of ele
phants, saves the day.
The brilliant photography of Clyde
De Vinna enlivens such sequences as
that in which Weissmuller, Miss O’
Sullivan and young Sheffield stage
an underwater swimming exhibition,
as well as such expertly-contrived
'thrill moments” as Weissmuller’s
battle with a crocodile, Sheffield’s
escape from a rhinoceros and the
savage native rites.
Giving straightforward portrayals
in roles which could easily have been
overplayed are Reginald Owen, as
the head of the expedition, Barry
Fitzgerald as a genial Irishman, Tom
Conway and Philip Dorn, the latter
playing the villians of the plot. You’ll
also remember the work of a new
comer to the Tarzan pictures, little
Cordell Hickman, who is introduced
as “Boy's” native pal.
Youth Has Fling in
'Babes on B'dway,"
Mickey Rooney and Judy
Garland Star in Film Sun
day, Monday, Tuesday
“Babes on Broadway,’’ at the Plym
outh Theatre Sunday, Monday, and
Tuesday, proves one thing — youth
still maintains its supremacy in the
motion picture world.
A splendidly contrived combina
tion of music, dancing, comedy and
pathos, this new picture serves as
the perfect show window for the tal
ents of its co-stars, Mickey Rooney
and Judy Garland.
Literally full of music, the picture
aiso offers Virginia Weidler in a de
parture from her usual dramatic role
to singing and dancing. Two other
notable additions are Ray McDonald
and Richard Quine, newcomers from
the New York stage, with Pay Baint
er, Donald Meek and Alexander
Woolcott represented in adult roles.
The impersonations by Mickey and
Judy bring down the house, as does
Judy’s singing of “Chin Up, Cheerio,
Carry On,” “Bombshell from Brazil,”
which serves to introduce Mickey in
a Carmen Miranda impersonation,
“Rings on My Fingers, Bells on My
Toes,” a la Blanche Ring, and “Mary
Is a Grand Old Name,” as made fa
mous by Pay Templeton.
