She has been called the "song--iter's dream"; she can sing; low-down music in a con- tralto voice or do  tune in a col- oratura register witl equal ease. She has the biggest range of true notes of any screen star in Holly- wood. In addition to her versatility m the mere mechanics of music, Judy also is bl.e to inject real soul into her singing. Being from the South, se understand the south-land rhythm, which was created originally by the nerves and which s the forerunner of present day syncoopation. In the particular region of Florid in which Judy was bolm, people told their stories in song, the songs are all traditional. Thus, cildren of tl South are infected at an early ge with the inspiration and desire to sing. They grow up, and often evelop into singers of renown, as has Judy Ounova. Miss Oanova, however, despite her lessons md training, has maintained a sort of untouched backtmm Americanness of tone, which is in keeping with her unas- sumAng personality. She is never satisfied with her own work, and is in torment while listening to a "playback" of hr own recordings. When the piggyback ends Judy murmurs apologetically to every, one on the set: "Honest, folks, I didn't mean it!" Dr. E. H. Cox came home last Friday night from a trip of sev- eral days to Oldham, S. Dak., go- ing with a party of friends to hunt pheasants. The hunters bag- ged the limit each day.

What a joy to watch that stream line go by; Tresses flying glints of gold: Tresses flying dark as midnight, all trying to reach the goal.

Everyone likes to reRd a good dog story, and when one "had seen the dog and knows the owner, tl story becomes doubly interesting. The owner of this dog is ALfred IT. Greening, a native of Conland. who has been a resider t of Spring- field for many years, nd ,s state's attorney of Sangamon county. J. Emil Smith, ir his column, "Mak- ing Conservation," in the Illinois State Journal, Spri_tield, in a recent issue, had the following good dog story: "On  hillside of a frm be- tween Buffalo and Cornland is a :tombstone with the name, "Mike", on it. "Mike" was a mongrel dog, own- ed by State's Attorney Alfred tI. Greening nearly twenty-five years ago, ,and the tombstone marks the grave in which the dog vca. buried. Greening was a captain, serving overseas in the first World war when he received a letter tlt "Mike" had been killed. He cbled home directing that his folks buy a leather suitcase, place ",Mike's" remains in it and bury him on the hillside. The story of Greening's owner- ship of the dog is an inteyesting one. reening was attending the Morning ,ft,.r morcing at the same hour the dog did the same thmg. Greening talked to the street car conductor and learned thaec no one owned tl dog. He was just a stray that had become at- tached to this particular conductor ar ran after the car on its first trip. "Well, if no one owns him, I'm going to owrt him," Greening told the cond|ctor. The next morning Greening caught the dog and took him to his room. It required a month before Greening could break him of th'e habit of running after the street car and be content to remain with lim. Greening's roommate and fellnw student at Wesleyan also o=ned a dog. He was ,a grand champ'on English bull dog. One day his roommate told him he was so hard pressed for funds he would have to part witl his bull dog. "I'll flip coin to see whether you pay me $35 or $50 for him." Greening lost td paid th price of $50. He sent the bull d'Jg and the stray to his home on the farm between Buffalo and Cornland. It developed the bull dog h! a lust for blood and complaints from adjoining farmers soon cr:e pour- traits to "Mike," the tha "Mike" was runni chickens and goats and them. He put a watch o v" dogs. A short while afferward ing enlisted in the army sent to France. While be w his folks weren't able ta "M_ilve" and the bull dog surveillance and one nig "Mike" was making a raid one shot and killed hin In telling the story of and his fate Greening said: are cases like  in where bad aseocition sorrowful endg. 'Mike' good dog until the bull ed his life and chged it." Grades Win 3 Out of 7 The grade School  $ had a fairly successful fall wimAng three out 0 seven gaxnes.
