Joan Bennett , who plays the lead- ing feminine role in the Fox produc- tion , \Hush Money, \ at the Port Jef- ferson Theatre next Thursday learn- ed the full significance of the famous third degree. In one scene of the screen play, Miss . Bennett falls into the hands of the police. In nn endeavor to make her confess she Is seated at a table with a dim light from above shining on her face , and grouped around her, a dozen \di cks \ with accusing fingers pointed at her , trying to force her to t ell. . , . It was so realistic , so brutal , one might say, \ declared Miss Bennett after the scene was over , \ that I had difficulty remembering my linos, I con sympathize with any unfortunate having to undergo the real third de- gree. I can readily understand how one would bo willing to tell anything to escape the terrific mind pounding. \ \Hu sh money, \ from a story by Philip Klein nnd Courtcnny Torrott , wi th dialog by Dudley Nichols , treats of modern blackmailers. H andle Albright plays the lend op- posite Miss Bennett with Owen Moore , C. Henry Gordon. Dou g lnn Cos g rove , George Rath and Myrna Loy porml- nent in the cast. Sidney Lanficftf di- rected. Joan Be nnett Gets Film Third De gree mastered the stunt of crawling on his stomach like a dog.

Legislative Appropriation To Be Sought at Next Session To Assure New « Park in 1932 INCLUDES 1 , 368 ACRES Will Be Fi rst Long Island Stale Park To H ave Public Golf Course—Will Fill a Long Needed Want Development of the Yoakum estate near Farmlngdale into a public park Is now practically assured. An option on the property which includes 1 , 368 acres of land includlrig a completed 18-hole gol f course , and another part- ly completed , has been obtained by the Long Island State Park Commis- sion through the cooperation of me Suffolk and Nassau boards of super- visors. The State will now have to raise by legislative appropriation or by i ndividual gift the balance of the money needed to consum n te the pur- chase. The purchase price of the land is hold to be extremely low—$850 per acre. Besides the golf course , the prop- erty Is in a highly developed state with buildings and various Improve- ments. Suffolk County ' s participation in obtaining the money needed for —: option was to the extent ot $10 , 000. The Town of Oyster Bay provided twice that amount. Both , it Is under- stood , have agreed to contribute toward the purchase price. This park will be the first Long Is- land State Park having public golf courses , a feature for which there has been a genuine demand over since the Island' s parks and parkways systems were started. Not only Is the tract ac- cessible but it offers an ideal location for a parkway spur connecting the Northern and Southern State Park- ways , according to Benjamin L. Van Scl mlck , executive secretary of the Commission. The tract is made up of beautiful rolling country, a large part of which is heavily wooded. Golf would , of course , be the prin- cipal feature at this new park. Be- siaes the development of the two courses the park commission would lay out bridle paths , picnic areas and oilier facilities. The Yoakum heirs , said Mr. Van Schalck have been extremely generous In naming a price considerably below the real value of the property. Its ac- quisition by the Long Island State Park Commission is looked for eager- ly by many. . ;•; \h\A Cm smkmm (Gefis Of Sl©i IFsdf Yoakum Estate *¦ J EFFERSON THEATRE ' Free Parfcin g - H ead Phones for the Deaf .:, : , HEALTHFULLY COOLE D ) [•TODAY—FRIDAY ' y £ JACKIE SEARLE and ; P Mil ZI GREEN in * ' < X * . ¦ ¦ J * : \ v , C-; ? ¦ ¦• £ i V \ ' v 1 fo r bidden § * wi f A d venture s ^ ff + C <3bramaioa 9ictwt T : '-}M ? * or T \0 j t il * . ? \ .

Isaacs Is presi- dent , has set September 2nd and 3rd as the date for holding its Flower Sho w. The sliow will be held at the Hotel Nassa u, Long Beach, ana will be open to any amateur growers regardless of where they may reside. A very broad schedule , comprising forty-five classes , covers most any flower which will be blooming in early September. A number of classes In the flower ar- rangement section , gives the amateur a wide scope in which to compete. ¦ There will be a large representation of commercial growers, but they will not compete In nnj of the classes ar- ranged for the amalcur. Ribbons are being awarded as first and second prizes in each of the forty-five classes A silver cup will be given to - the ex- hibitor scoring the greatest number of points in any section. Two silver cups will be given as sweepstakes. All prizes have been donated by the Mayor ol the City of Long Beach , the Honorable F rank Prankel. Schedules of Classes may be procured by communicating with Mrs. Isaacs. The great Golfing Double act , Billy Burke . , the national open champion , and George Von Elm , victim of the marathon play-off at Inverness , which will move into , action at the Timber Poin t Club on Saturday, August 29 , was an overnight sensation. Their coming together was an entirely new phenom- enon and • one that either of them would have been glad to pass up, If the coveted title could have . been won any other way. Burke and ' Von Elm gravitated to- gether through the unforgettable seventy-two hole playoff for the recent national open championship at Inver- ness , Toledo. Ifm i ght have been a dull performance, or a show in duplicate, if the two had employed the same style of play. But actually they are poles apart in methods of stroking. Burke Is clai ming, and Justly the mantle for stroke-saving which v/as worn regally by Walter Hagan and Bobby Jones. Al though Von Elm has been chal- lenged many times , his hour of tri- umph came at Baltimore in the final of the 1926 championship. He took on Jones when the Atlanta wizard was in full possession of his game , and trounced the titan 2—1. Burke and Von Elm will appear In a 36 round play at Timber Point on Saturday, August 29. The first round begins at 10:30 and the second will be at 2:30. The matches are open to tho public. Admission will be ? 2.

On nn elephant hunt he saves the life of on attractive American girl which starts off a series of ro- mantic adventures leading to the in- evitable conflict of inter-raclal mar- riage. The scene of the elephant stampede Is one of the most exciting shown on the screen In-somo-Umo,—It-is-d o ubtful if the villain over had a more spectacu- lar death than that ot Mlljnn In this episode. It carries the audience to the very edge of their scats and keeps them there..
