Ince in his latest picture “A Man of Action featui'ing Douglas Mao- Leap'' supported by Marguerite D e La Motte and Raym ond Hatton, w h ich w ill be shown at the New Theatre t o ­ night. Laughs and thrills and love interest have been closely interwoven in this clever original tale that comes from the pen of Bradley Kdpg. There’s a little love, a plot the picture fans can’t guess until the end. W ith never a m inute’s let' up. “A Man of Action,” is accurately described as a “M ovie that moves” Here’s the plot in brief; Douglas Mac Lean plays a silk stocking youth w ith more dough than ambition. The girl he loves (M arguerite De La v M otte) has enough pep for a whole boarding school She drives him out to do som ething and he does! W e’ll say he does! He gets mixed up w ith a band o f crooks w h o blackjack him into robbery of his own mansion. W h a t a m ix-up! Cope, crooks and hisses! Program also includes ‘‘The H a w k ’s Eye,” chapter 3 of the chapter play of stirring events of early American life, “Leatherstocking,” from the fam ­ ous novels by Jam es Eenimore Cooper “Topics of the D a y” and “Pathe R e ­ view.” Also on program is the special added Vaudeville attraction, “The Troubadors,” of New York City, in a presentation of Symphonic Jazz.

An intensely interesting tale of New York’s East Side, portarying m a n y of the types made famous by Am erica’s greatest short story writers— Bullies .gangsters, watrd politician^, pedlers, loan sharks— .a clever girl brought up ! on “The Sidewalks of New York,” and jo little w a if held captive by a brutal bully, who gets w h a t is properly com - ^ * I Strength and weaknes.s Tibute to the Legion :|: j honesty and treachery, humor and 4: £4’ /^ERTAIXLY if iiny organi- j pathos.

An exciting- three-round prize 'b ; fight between two girls is one of the , m a n y thrilling, red-idnoded incidents 'i; I in the story. Tn addition to the above 4' I the program includes a Hal Roach ^ I F om edy “Fast B lack,” and “Pathc * , N ews 6S” which sees and show s all. England’s newest tennis prodigy is Betty Nuthall. And Betty is a real prodigy, for 'She Is only thirteen years old, yet her game is good enough to earn her the respect of such capable and experienced players as Molla Bjurstedt Mallory, Miss Elizabeth Ryan and other veterans who have been in the limelight of. the tennis world for years. Mrs. Mallory has called her a “wonderful little player.” In the recent Middlesex championships played on the courts at Chiswick, Betty fought her way through the first two rounjls and in the third round found herself facing tlie redoubtable Molla, who was a star on the courts be­ fore Betty was bom. Mrs. Mallory took the first set, 6-1, while B etty was getting warmed up, but in the second set Betty was going great guns, and she gave Molla a battle that had the spectators cheering and acting roughly with their hats. She carried the game to six all, hut could not stand the pace, and Mrs. Mallory won, 8-6. Betty is a sturdily built girl, with golden hair that hangs down h€^ back, and she adraita that she “loves to play the game” and enjoys “playing before a crowd.” English tennis enthusiasts expect that Betty w ill develop into a British Helen W ills or a French Suzanne Lenglen and confidently predict she w ill be winning the world’s championships by the time she is twenty.

HILTON WILL GET TUXEDO EXPRESS Honesdale, Pa., Aug. 25— Charles-H. Hilton, who for many years has been the conductor of the Pullman on the Honesdale branch of the Erie from Lackawaxen, about the first of Octo­ ber is to have a new job. He has bid in the Tuxedo Express run which w ill necessitate his absence from home during the w eek. The conductor on that line, holding the job for 30 years, died recently and Mr. H ilton from seniority secured the advanced posi­ tion. W h ile the chair car service wdll probably be discontinued by Honesdale it is expected such order w ill not go into effect for several w e e k s yet. On a fishing trip to H ick's Pond in Greene township, - P ike county, Mr. Nobo, and Mr. Meyer of Scranton and Mr. Goerlitz of Roemervillc certainly had a very exciting adventure. They were parking their auto in the barn on the old Franz W o lff place, when a rattlesnake w ith head and tail erect, and coiled, .ready for action, greeted them . They lost no time in kinirig the reptile, w'hich moasuved nearly four feet and sported eleven rafetle.s.

The men wer=i surprised that th e deer were so tam e — they got close enough to get a good look at them.
