It is a fine, warm, human photo
play, with bis spectacular thrills,
honest comedy and excellent di
rection. Jason Robards is cast as the
young coal miner who goes to col
lege and becomes a football star.
He gives an excellent, forthright
characterization, and shares hon
ors with Miss Dresser, who, as
lis Polish mother, creates another
memorable, forceful screen char
acter. Virginia Browne Faire, playing

' The black cherry crop of this
district, as will be seen, is going
to bring a big lot of money, and
bring it very quickly. Added to
the Royal Ann crop, for both
canning and barreling, the volume
of money received by cherry grow
ers here will mount up for the
present crop.
Both growers and packers are
hoping for fair weather. The lat
rains have done some damage, by

the Royal Anns, and slight injury
to the Iamberts.
