How Producer In Airplane Lifted
Prairie Cinderella From Obscurity
And Now Nebraska Maid Of Nine
teen Is Right On
They are telling along Broad
way a Cinderella-like tale that
if it came from one Of those mime
ograph operators known as press
representatives, would be shouted
down with cries of "wolf " This
time, however, it happens to be
true, so let's get on with the story
One day last Spring John Mur
ray Anderson was flying ever N ;
baska for business reasons, which
perhaps, are the best, reasons out
could have for flying over Nebras
ka. The plane was forced d.cwn in
some small Nebraska town, rnd the
producer took advantage of nn en
forced holiday bv going to the lo
cal motion picture house.
It was nn Intimate little theatre,
with an old-fashioned and tim''
honored upright piano substituting
for an orchestra Seated at the
piano was Ann Pennington, or Mr
Anderson thought it was Ann Pen
nington. On the other hand, it
could not have been Ann, because
she does not play the piano, a mat
ter which Anderson recalled in time
to restrain himself from greeting
the girl like an old friend.
But he greeted her, none the less,
and learned she was HenrletU
Henri, the theatre owner's daugh
ter. never had passed Nebraska's
borders, but had not abandoned all
hope. Of course, or there would
not be any story, she was asked it
she would like to come to New
York to appear in a show'. Sin
w'ould. and did, a month ago. and
now she is living in the apartmen*
of the same Ann Pennington whom
she resembles so much.
Miss Henri is learning to dance,
and will dance, sing, play and ce
leste and be shot through the heart
by Keating, the magician In "Mur
ray Anderson's Almanac." when i
that show opens. All of which will j
not be a bad night's start for a sev- j
rntccn-year-o'd girl who two
months ago did not know she looked
likp somebody rise.
Upper County Folks Find
No Benefit In Farm Agent
To the commissioners and citi
zens of Cleveland county:
After reading Mr. Crowder's let
ter in the Star, with which ve
agree heartily, we have been con
strained to investigate the senti
ment of the people in No 9 town
ship in regard to retaining a coun
ty farm agent in the near future.
People in No 9 are not chronic
kickers nor objectors to taxation
that brings adequate returns for
money well spent. Oiu- governor
who is already known as one of the
most outstanding governors in the
United States, has been very soli
citous for wiser expenditure of tax
money as well as substantial re
duction in the amount of taxes.
I have made a thorough can
vass of farm owners in this town
ship. and wish to be fair with all
parties consulted. We are listing
below the names of those who
testify that they have received
benefits from the services of the
agent and also those who say th«.v
do not even know him or have re
ceived nothing from the service.
Mrs. L. E. Stacy says that Dr
Gidney terraced her land and that
Mr. Hardin pruned her fruit trees
and saved them from becoming a
Mr. V A. Gardner says that four
hundred of his chickens were sav
ed through following the advice of
the farm agent.
Six or eight others testify that
the agent had given his advice and
assistance in culling their chickens:
viz. G. S. Royster. Earney Elliot,
John R. Gantt. D. F. Beam, Wins
low Wright, Will Yelton. Gettys
R. W. Wilson says he derived
special benefit from the farm agent.

they are not acquainted with nor
have received any benefits what
ever from the service: Homer Beam,

A BILLION-DOLLAR VOTE.OF CONFIDENCE
The public has invested in Chrysler
motor cars the staggering total of one
billion, thirteen million, five hundred
and forty-six thousand dollars—
$1,013,546,000—in five years’ time.
This amazing demand for Chrysler has
been inseparably associated with public
appreciation of the speed, power, beauty
and long life of Chrysler cars.
Chrysler superiority has lifted Chrysler
over the heads of long-established cars
to its present lofty place in the industry.
The public appreciates the significance
of Chrysler’s unique engineering and
manufacturing principle of Standard
ized Quality. It realizes that Chrysler’a
achievements in performance, in smart
peas, in comfort, in safety, in stamina,
in long life, in quality and in value are
possible only by virtue of that principle.
That is why Chrysler has been awarded
such unprecedented public preference^
