AS VIOLINIST BACK
IN GIRLHOOD ROLE
Jler talent on the violin launched
Betty Compson on a theatrical ca
reer when she was a school girl in
Salt Lake City, Utah.
That same talent stood her in
good stead when she was assigned
to play the feminine ltjad in Radio
Pictures' all-talking, all-musical pro
duction, 'Street Girl," showing at
the Macon theatre, Wednesday,
Thursday and Friday of next week.
Miss Compson introduces the theme
song of the Radio' Picture in a
violin solo. It is "My Dream Mem
ory," which already has caught the
fancy of dance orchestras through
out the country.
Three other tuneful numbers, writ"
ten directly for the production, all
features in "Street Girl." They are
"Broken Up Tune," "Lovable and
Sweet," and "The Prince of Good
Fellows." John Harron, Jack Oakie,
Ned Sparks, Guy Buccola, Joseph

'Free and Easy' Corn
Huskers Get Surprise
The cast of Mctro-Gol.dvyn-Ma -er's
a!l-''1Winir. all-star comedy, "Free
and Easy," received ah unexpected
addition in 'the persons of a family
of humble but busy ants!
In a scene in which Buster Keaton
and Robert Montgomery . discover
they both come from Kansas, Direc
tor Edward Sedgwick decided it
would be. funny to have them com
pete in a corn-husking contest. Al
though corn was out of season, the
property man located a case of it in
a commission market warehouse and
brought it to the studio.
Keaton and Montgomery huskedl
corn industriously and then sudden
ly began scratching. Then Sedgwick
rose suddenly fronv his canvas chair
with a yelp of agony.
The corn was full of large and
ambitious . ants which had taken a
hand in the drama.
It took half a day with a vacuum;
cleaner to clean out the ants. But.
Sedgwick insisted, it made the scene'
"Guess it'd look nrotty good if
t broke an arm, too," s-ml Buster.
