The State


Employees of the State theater were a busy lot this afternoon as they prepared for the "Hollywood premier" showing of Garden City's own two-reel comedy, "Runnin' Wild," and the Daily Telegram's double-length news reel in which some 2,000 residents of Garden City and vicinity will appear.

And while theater employees were making arrangements for the event, D. W. Baird, who filmed the production, was in the basement of the theater in the special room the management provided for him, completing his preparation of nearly a mile of film which will be shown.

"These pictures are presented all in the spirit of fun," Baird said, "and we're promising those who attend that they'll find the program highly enjoyable. The picture is made even more entertaining by its local crudities than if it had the finesse of a Hollywood production.

Pomp and Ceremony

The thirty members of the cast of "Runnin' Wild" will be greeted as they enter the theater for tonight's "Hollywood premier" with all the pomp and ceremony that is accorded Hollywood actresses and actors when their pictures are shown for the first time.

The "Runnin' Wild" stars will be brought to the theater in a fleet of new cars. They will step from the cars onto a special platform which is being constructed in front of the theater, then introduced over the loud speaker system which is being installed.

The members of the cast will start arriving at 8 o'clock and theater patrons will not be admitted to the theater until after the ceremony in front of the building has been finished.

Inside the building the members of the cast will be seated in a special section reserved for them. The regular theater program, including the feature picture, Jane Withers in "Angel's Holiday," will be shown first. The comedy and the local news reel will wind up the program.

Two Organ Programs Richard Dreiling, well-known traveling organist, will present two short programs during the evening. The first will be between 7:45 and 8 o'clock and will be broadcast over the loud speaker system. Later he will present a special recital just before the local pictures are shown.

The local news-reel will feature the Fourth of July celebration here. Baird has obtained excellent shots of the husband and hog-calling contests, crowds demonstrations contests; Frank Barlow, livestock exhibits; Betty Brayfogle, other exhibits; Harry Lightner, educational booth exhibits; Audry Herron, lunch; Bernice Mead and Mrs. Chester Russell, announcers; and Max Engle, Mrs. Harry Carl, Marion E. Russell, jr., adult advisors.
