Famous Comedian Here in 'Kentucky Pride' With Fam-
"Freshman," His hrst Col- ous Horses, Is Showing ...
, lege Boy Role
at the Heilfe
For the firgt time-lit his ten
years of cutting' comic capers, on
-f the screen,. Harold Lloyd plays the
role of a college 'hoy f He has
; played .many parts, but ""The
' Freshman,, ig tthe first time jbe'g
j donned a turtle-neck sweater and
- a pill cap and done the rah. rah
' stuff! How that it's finished and
It wa3 'not for artistic reasons
alone that "Kentucky Pride,' the
William Fox supreme attraction
which opens today at the Heilig
theatre, came to he filmed in the
picturesque Blue' Grass! region.
The principal actors in this thrill
ing screen drama a re. horses, and
the cast includes some of the most
all that remains Is to hang arodnd j famous aceNtrack champions of
theatres and listen, to the ha, ha
stuff jthat sifts, through' the Tjen
tilators, Harold thinks that heThg
a college kid" is about the most
strenuous role he's played.
Today sees the first showing of
'The Freshman" at the Oregon
theatre, whee it remains for four
days. It shows the' efforts of a
fresh man named Lamb to become
popular and succeeding in being
only the goat ! The action covers
his arrival and reception at Tate
college; his love for pretty Peggy,
the only one in town who isn't
laughing up their sleeves at the
little Lamb! his predicament at a
ball at which he wears a basted
dress suit; his efforts to make the
football team; and the big ,ame in
which the school's reputation
hangs, perilously In the balance. "
Good psychology sound
grouud-work'for a drama, and, as
it is used in "The Freshman." it is
a foundation for a story of rib
shaking laughs, heart-touching
tear and spinetthigltng tlirills.
This Is Harold Lloyd's most, am-
recent years, each .playing him
self. In the list are Man o' War,
the world's greatest thoroughbred,
Fair Play, Negofol, Morvich and
other settled Kentuckians.
The ordinary-two-legged screen'
actor gladly follows the eamera
to the ends of the earth, if such
be orders. Not so with the four
legged, stars, j,. No trips to Holly
wood and waiting around studios
for them. They had to.be photo
graphed n ; the old Kentucky
homes ;br not at all. And that's
how it was done.
"Kentucky Pride'! is the life
story oT "Virginia's Future," a
royally bred filly, as told by her
self. This daughter of Negofol
was born on the splendid estate of
Roger Beaumont. Beaumont lost
great sums gambling. He bet the
remnant of his fortune on Vir
ginia's Future in her fir't race.
She did her best to justify her
master's confidence, but fell and
broke her leg Just when the rare
Beaumont was ruined, and els-

hoy who wouldn't grow up.
For the past 20 years this J.
M. Barrie play has been nothing
short of a sensation on the legiti
mate stage. It has become an in
stitution, in fact an institution
that shows no sign of decay..
Barrie, the man with the most
colorful imagination of all Eng
land's writers, has pat into this
classic scenes which" could only be
hinted at in the stage production
of the piece.
. But on the screen, it is an en
tirely different matter. In the

Vi'f v Inheritance Tax- Evaded Be-
cause us virtue is ue
That rich people often evade a
large share of the inheritance-tax
Was the belief expressed by George
If. Duncan, manufacturing man of
New.Umpshire, in his address to.
the Iiwanis club at .its weekly
luncheon Tuesday. He said the
reason for this is that the tax Is
"irraUonal" and its virtue ia
questionable. He cited the case of
Florida to show that the wealth of
a state is enhanced by the aboli
tion' of the Inheritance tax.
Taxes fchoufd , not be '.levied
against both the land "and its pro
ducts. Mr. Duncan believes, but
should be levied only against land.
He would have the value created
by the community taxed -to riiH
the community; He pointed out
that in New; Hampshire the water
sheds of the state had been great
ly endangered because of the tax
on young trees, butjwith the iift
Ing.of that tax,, reforestation has
been doubled in the last year.
He; declared that a tax on the
capital vaJife'of Jand decreased the
selling, price of : that land, and
branded . Buch ;' procedure as : ir
rational. C. B. vMcCnllough, ' president,
was presented with a mallet block
that has .the habit of creating an
explosion, whenever stfuck. with
sufficient 'force. I He. 'apparently
enjoyed his gift during the dinner
and declared that after he , had,
resigned as president of the club
he expected to spend many happy
leisure hours experimenting withJ
the block. V . ..
