FILM FORECAST AT STATE THEATRE
HERTFORD, N. C.

MONDAY ONLY APRIL 11
Maureen O'Sullivan and Robert Taylor in "A Yank at Oxford"
For the second time this year, and
also for only the second time since'
1923, Oxford won its annual boat
race from Cambridge on the Thames
Dense crowds lining the edge of the
river cheered enthusiastically and
ran along the bank as down the broad
waterway the two crews swept in a
last desperate spurt past the finishing
post. Cheers greeted the result of
this great world sporting event. Ox
ford won by half a length.
But if vou'd looked closer you
would have seen a complete produc-j
tion crew with two cameras in a'
launch, following the shell containing
Robert Taylor as the stroke of the
Oxford eight. An assistant director
with a megaphone directed the cheer
ing and movements of the crowd on
the bank. The re-enactment of the
Boat Race four months before it is
really due again was for the excit
ing finale of "A Yank at Oxford,"
showing at the State Theatre Moa-i
day, April 11th.
The stroking of the Oxford crew!
in the boat race was the culmination '
of Taylor's strict training under Ted I
Phelps, thrice world sculling cham
pion. Taylor first learned to row for
the film in a tank and agreeably sur
prised the Thames Boat Club men
who formed his Oxford crew, by his
clean-cut, swiit stroking down the
historic course, even if he did manage
to "catch a crab" on one trial sprint
as he first dipped his oar.
In the chill misls on an ice-cold
morning Taylor and his crew left the
University of London boathouse ac
companied by the "Cambridge" crew
and with Director Jack Conway and
cameras in the launch rowed down
stream for rehearsals. With final in
structions from Phelps, Taylor wait
ed with. his crew half a mile from
the winning post. As the mists lift
ed, the signal was given and the
Thames waters broke into foam as
Oxford and Cambridge sped up river.
Cameras trained on the rival crews
from close range, the crowds on the
banks raced with the eights and
passers-by gathered on a bridge, un
wittingly added an authentic touch
to the reconstruction of the famous
Oxford won the boat race six times
in all, the course having to be rowsd
by the crew again and again before
Director Conway was satisfied. By
the end of the filming the collapse of
the tired crews over their oars was
genuine and no piece of film-acting.
The Y. W. A. Society of Bethel
Baptist Church will meet on Friday
evening at 7;30 o'clock with Misses
Pencie and Esther Ward.
Mr. and Mrs. C. J. Raper and
daughter, Mary Lina, of Belvidere,
