money was "tight," the bank made
loans to the farmers of Marion and

"SCHOOL II AYS"
Just a true, clean, American play is
perhaps the best description that can
be given of Gus Edwards' "School
Days," which will be the attraction at
the Temple tomorrow night.
Coming here with the endorssment
o over a year's run in New York City
and another season equally divided be between
tween between the larger cities of the United
States, this play bids well to be the
one most important attraction of the
present season. Unlike most musical
plays, "School Days" does have a plot
whieh is so nicely woven in between
songs and dances that there is never
an adverse criticism heard as the au audience
dience audience passes out of the theater after
witnessing the performance.

to be very nutty; Johnny Boston

who has just come over and wants to
learn: all are characters that blend
together in a manner that makes the
oldest man think of the days of his
childhood and the sweet never-to-be-forgotten
"School Days," with its simple plot
of the days of youth, mingled with the
troubles of childhood in the alleys and
narrow streets of a large city, brought
all to a happy ending after the stress,
combine to make a play that has
brought back memories, and tears,
laughter and sheer joy to hundreds of
thousands of delisrhted theatergoers,
