Al'DITORUM THEATRE, ASHE
! The merry battle of farces that is
when the Auditorium Players will
pi esent the famous John Emerson and
Anita Loos comedy. "The Whole
.Town's Talking." During the current
week the company established an en
viable record with "Why Men Leave
Home" and "The Whole Town's Talk
ing" is claimed to be even better
that the Avery Hopwood farce.
One of the main characters in the
play is Letty Lythe, the screen
"vamp." To those who follow the
doings in Hollywood, it is not diffi
cult to guess what particular screen
' star the Emerson-Loos combination
had in mind when they created that
character. The action of the farce
; takes place in Sandusky, Ohio. Henry
Simmons picks his sloppily dressed
vounc Dartner. Chester Rinnev. In h
his son-in-law. and when Etherl Sim
mons states that she could fall in

man with a past, the two men
