Letter: Good for a chuckle

Doug McCammish writes:
Carol Perkins is often good for a chuckle. This article reminded of a time when the esteemed Gerald Chafin was trying to teach some of us oldsters how to sing properly. Gerald said, "Put your chin on your chest." Someone else replied, "Which one?" I call my excess chin flesh my wattle. No turkey comments, please. --Doug

1931: Talkies arrive; and the Royal Columbians Orchestra

By JIM

Columbia's Rialto Theatre, successor to the Paramount, opened in August 1928 with the screening of Don Juan. Less than three years later, the opening days of January 1931 found Adair County abuzz with news of a major upgrade when manager John Ritchie Walker and his partner Vernon Yarberry announced the talkies were coming to town.

These gentlemen had "contracted with an Indianapolis concern to install a Photophone in the local picture show house" with necessary equipment would ship immediately. A crew of workmen would arrive with the equipment to do the installation.

The News went on to state, "The Theatre will be completely rewired, all walls will be padded to eliminate echo, new screens will be used, in fact, it will be a new and modern picture show house in every respect, one that would do credit to a much larger place."

From that point, changes came quickly, and a large display ad in the January 13 edition of the paper announced screenings of the first two talking pictures: For the Love o' Lil on Friday and Saturday nights, January 16 & 17, and Rain or Shine on Monday & Tuesday, January 19 & 20. The ad urged readers to attend and "See them--Hear them."

Jointly Relieved

By Phillip Coffey
Went out very early to listen to what I might hear.
An orchestration of beauty well - timed for me to join in
But, Oh My! I will never be able to reach the level
Of such high notes of rapidly repeating the awakening joy.

Once again the sun is adding its bright rays to everything
With a 'touchy feely ' luster for each of us that can see
From the wild and tamed kingdom on the earthly scene
Listening closely I hear quickly chattering voices -jointly relieved.
