Ryman, a former Mt. Pulaski Township High School stu- dent, a son of Mrs. Cora B. Ryman, who moved from Mt. Pulaski to De- catur a few years ago, has been ap- pointed scenic designer for a motion picture company in Hollywood. The young man is well known to Mt. Pu- laski people, who will read with much interest about the progress he is making. The Decatur Sunday Herald and Review had the following to say about him last Sunday: Hollywood, world movie capital, has laid claim to the talents of an- other Decatur individual. Herbert D. Ryman, son of Mrs. Cora B. Ry- man, who last June was graduated by the Chicago Art Institute, has been appointed scenic designer for Metro. Works produced by the young artist will be seen in Decatur movie houses in forthcoming productions. Settings of his design will be seen in "rhe White Sister," starring Hel- en Hayes, and "Turn About," in which Joan Crawford has the lead- ing role. Following his graduation from the Chicago:.Art Institute last June, Mr. Ryman joined his sister, Miss Lucille Ryman, who had been study- ing drama in the Pasadena Com- munity Playhouse. Taking a six weeks' course at the Playhouse, he designed scenery for a number of its roductions. There he met Cedric ,. art director for Metro- Goldwyn-Mayer, and husband of Dolores del Rio. Mr. Gibbons professed interest in Mr. Ryman's work while he was et occupied with his work in the layhons Later in the summer Mr. Ryman of  alive in your _opened his own studio in the "Little Mexico" section of Los Angeles,  where he has continued his study of L_" ..m h ahl, to aesthetic painting and has practiced 9m y, ?,"-t.'.='. .,e commercial art.

Producers' ideas come to him in the form of L]ueprints, indicating general loca- tions of scenic pieces desired. From these Mr. Ryman sketches each scene as it is to appear in the pro- duction, and from his sketches com- aany architects construct the scenery. Recent letters to his mother, and sister, Mr Bruce Pensinger, de- cribe his work and surroundings with enthusiasm. One of his most recent enterprises has been designing scenes for a new 'rarzan" picture work making the severes of its long life for exist-'alve-D " to the heavy load the long- [ z y rug mre de ression has laid upon I Rob p .. bed Saturda Night friends r "uehnmamtv e ]i- Wil'I l ' Y unless speedily to its , " t ..... -" -'- valuable ser-I The Alvey Drug store, corner of eCl 1;0 curtt u W ? ......

Pulaski Woman's Club held in the American Leion rooms Fri- day afternoon, December 9th. when Miss Grace Grove, assisted by Mr. J. Spencer Green, members of the faculty of Illinois Wesleyan Univer- sity, Bloomington, gave a most in- teresting nrogram. Miss Grove gave a lecture on "The Evolution of the Word in Song," and told that in the beginning man sang his emotions in meaningless syllables before he was able to use words. Out of the choral dancers came the individual singers in folk songs. Miss Grove told of the origin of Christmas Carols and descriptive ballads. She al gave a clever demonstration of the difference be- tw the wordless song dear to the singer with a love of tone produc- tion and the modern poem telling of familiar things. Mr. Green, a gentleman with a charming .personality aml a rich baritone vote, sang several songs in illustration of the points brought Out in Miss Grove's talk. He also showed excellent training in vecal diction, of which Miss Grove spoke in *the beginning of her lecture. Mrs. Lorah Z.

At the organization meeting of the Logan County Farm Bureau held in Lincoln Monday, December 12th, Charles Schmitt of Beason was re-elected president. Other officers re-elected were as follows: Vice President, T. O. Niewotd, of Atlanta. Secretary, John Crane, Lincoln, Treasurer, C. S. Oglevee, Lincoln. The Farm Bureau's constitution was amended at the recent annual Victim Of Local Cagers Large Crowd of Loyal Fans Enjoy Locals Victory " "A city set on a hill cannot be hid," is a truth that Mt. Pulaski Township High School cagers forci- bly demonstrated to Springfield High last Friday night, December 9th, when they won a 28 to 20 de- cision at the State Arsenal before a 2,500 crowd of fans. Playing a steady, consistent brand of basketball that was at no time sensational or "over their heads/" the Mt. Pulaski cagers went about their task of avenging their defeat of last year, and in the sectional of the previous year, in a cool manner that left no doubt in the minds of their 500 loyal followers as to the outcome. The bugaboo of competing against a boasted Peterman team and ad- vance dope that Springfield had 20 men, all of first string calibre, ready for the fray, passed off the locaca] squad like peas rolling off a knife. Contrary to conflicting reports that Athens was to ,lay the first game, Mt. Pulaski received first call, and furnished the fans the rea game of the evening. .. . Springfield started win is irst strinsr squad and kept them prac- tically intact throughout the game, although substitutions were made for brief periods. ML Pulaski led all the way thru,. and in only one .Duarter were they in any danger. Finishing the first half with a 16 to 9 scpre in their favor, they failed to maintain that wide margin in the third quarter, which ended 19 to 17, their favor. But the fourth quarter was a difo ferent picture entirely. The boys got going again and scored 9 points to their opponents 3. Near the close of the fourth period when the locals had a comfortable lead, Coach Dertinger's coached team gave a beautiful exhibition of retaining possession of the ball just within the "penalty line.  The w the boys handled the bail and eluded all efforts to get possession of the -ball would have done justice to a group of ballet dancers. Good of Springfield lived u? to his name, for he was just as good as his name. Scheffler is a dangerous center, and Martin, though small, is fast and elusive. (Continued on page 7) .
