BORTHWICK The Man Who Talked Too Much WARNER (A) TF two warders had not •been-* ardent amateur gardeners their conversational dallying over an urgent telephone call would not have sent an innocent young man to the electric chair :and the desperately repentant assistant district attorney who had secured his conviction would not (1) have upchucked his job to become an honest defence lawyer nor, headed thence for bankruptcy, would he (2) have deserted honesty to act as a racketeer’s “mouthpiece.” Perhaps: but this film is avery synthetic challenge to our emotions, and fiercely melo­dramatic situations had to be worked up somehow. You may not believe in the thrills, but the suspense is con­veyed efficiently and one takes an interest in watching the emer­gence of one little melodramatic trick after another-—especially as it is all warmed up with inci­dental humour. George Brent plays the lawyer, so consistently lucky in getting off notorious characters that you might have thought juries would suspect him at sight. Virginia Bruce is the nice sec­retary who would rather have the lawyer honest but never will desert him anyway. And then, as the square-faced little chief crook, suave but merciless, we have, as a surprise, the once heroic Richard Barthelmess. Henry Armetta, amusing as a loquacious and grateful foreigner, brings the last iaugh when, upturn­ing with alternative floral tributes, he presents the honest lawyer, by mistake, with the“ Requiescat In Pace ”wreath he has prepared case.”“in Public Deb. No. 1 DOMINION (U )/")NE of the mysteries here for ^ordinary cinema-goers is the importance attached to the ap­pearance as herself of a stocky iittle woman named Elsa Max­well. In America, one gathers, she is famous as a sort of pro­fessional hostess, but such gifts as she discloses in the picture fail to establish her claims as a film star. Elsa Maxwell apart, it is a Virginia Bruce and. George Brent in “The Man Who Talked Too Much "lively show about a soup king’s heiress'who is lured into Com­munist activities and is publicly spanked by George Murphy. They dance. Brenda Joyce gives the heroine of this cheerful nonsense an in­teresting touch of character. Dulcy EMPIRE (U) ANN SOTHERN plays a scatterbrained girl whose weakness for helping people lands them in all sorts of em­barrassment. Miss Sothern carries off amiable irresponsibility ex­tremely well,and, as the film is highly polished and opulently set, it makes acceptably amusing entertainment. Old Bill and Son NEW GALLERY (U) (~)LD BILL, of course, is v cartoonist Bairnsfather’s character. Morland Graham brings him convincingly to life as a Cockney taxi-driver who joins up with the Pioneers. John Mills plays his soldier son, Mary Clare his wife, and Rene Ray a girl in the A.T.S. Renee Houston as a variety artist determined upon entertain­ing the troops is worth half a dozen of Hollywood charmers, however you consider her. Her gay contribution to these rather dated and obvious proceedings affords a refreshing interlude. HAPPY INTERLUDE By J. F. Horrabin Grand National Winner Is Out Today Captain Heath’s RACING NOTES B OGSKAR, winner of last year’s Grand National, is to reappear on a racecourse in the Optional Selling Chase at Worcester today. Red Bower, who was expected to oppose him, has not been sent and the opposition is not very formidable. Jovial Judge and Tweedledee II. may give Bogskax most trouble. Golden Knight, Schubert Poland Ploum seem to have the best prospects in the River Chase, and I favour the first-named, who has no doubt improved since winning at Nottingham last month.

St. Your App les Should Marry By ALBERT GURIE 1 WELL remember a stand­ard rose tree in a neigh­ bour’s front garden being an object of special interest, merely because it produced blooms of two distinct colours, in this case a deep red and a flesh pink. Inadvertently, the nurseryman had grafted two varieties onto the same briar stock. Something on similar lines, but by design and not accident, is being done with varieties of apples, the object being to over­come the troublesome question of the pollination of self-sterile varieties. You probably know that if you planted a Cox’s Orange Pippin where there were no suitable varieties nearby to pollinate it, the tree would bloom but there would be few or no apples. But we hear now of fertile Cox’s Orange trees, and the explanation of this is that a branch of the variety James Grieve—avery suitable partner for the marriage—is grafted onto the stock in addition to the Cox’s Orange, with the result that there are two varieties on one tree. PARSNIPS, OLD AND NEW This should prove a boon to those who fancy this delicious dessert variety and have room for growing only one apple tree, as the question of planting a com­panion variety does not now arise. It would be Interesting to extend the idea yourself to other varieties, especially if you like to ado little experimenting. To do this, you should cut some shoots from the chosen varieties whiile the apple trees are still dormant. Each shoot should have at least four dormant buds, and will constitute the scion for graft­ing in spring. Nothing more need be done just now, except to inlay the undershoots a wall or similar place with a northerly aspect, to delay de­velopment of the buds. Last year’s parsnips instill the ground are beginning to produce new leaves, which is a sign that1 W ycombe, Redford Sports v. Reading“ A ” , Uxbridge v. Oxford City, Windsor and Eton v.

They will keep quite we” like that for some weeks. FOR NEXT WINTER It is time to think of next win­ter's supply too. Few realise until they grow them that par­snips monopolise apiece of ground practically the whole year round. Still, there are com­pensations. for this. On the whole, it is a trouble-free vege­table to grow, and it must be borne in mind tha* it comes next to the potato in focki value. Good crops can only be grown when along period of growth is given to the plants, which means that it is difficult to makeup for lost time through seed failing to germinate. It takes anything from three to four weeks and sometimes longer before the seedlings are up, and during this time the seed easily rots, especi­ally when sown in cold, wet soil. It is important then to provide tht right i nditions by getting the ground dug now, _o that only one sowing is needed roundabout the end of the month. By the., the- soil is likely to be dry and in a crumbling state. Most soils will grow good par­snips, and often the crop will be more successful on heavy land than potatoes. The aim should be to obtain long, straight roots, and these can only be had when there are no obstructions to growth in the nature of hard clods or stones in the soil. IDEAL SITE Manure is best buried some twelve inches or so down whilst digging. The ideal is to choose a site which was treated to several barrow loads of organic material for a previous crop, as late manuring, and the use of fresh manure particularly tends to make the roots fork badly.
