In addition ’ to that, Kelvinator’s many outstanding features would pay dividends the year round in leisure, health protection, and money saved through quanity buying and elimination of spoilage.  “The name and record of Kelvina-tor as a pioneer in all refrigeration problems is in itself sufficient guarantee of enduring quality and a lifetime of satisfactory service.”   u Virginia Judge” Opens At Theatre Tonight  Walter C. Kelly, the latest New York stage star to break into Hollywood, will be shown in his first screen production, “The Virginia Judge” tonight, with Marsha Hunt, Johnnie Downs, and Stepin Fetchit in the supporting cast.

Critics have stamped as a real find.  On the same bill is “I Live For Love” wi'th beautiful Dolores Del Rio and America’s baritone sensation, Everett Marshall.

Martindale’s Resignation, Holding That Issue Lost Through Giving Opponent’s Side  TRIBUNE INFLUENCE ADMITTED BY SERVICE GROUP  “This Paper Advocates A Sewer System For The City Of Arcadia But Will Not High-Pressure Public Through One-Sided Publicity," Martindale Declares Today  Charging the Arcadia Service Association with attempts to “muzzle the press,” P. M. Martindale, publisher of the Arcadia Daily Tribune, who was asked to resign at the last meeting of the group, tolay gave the “inside story” on the sewer bond election fiasco which flashed up after the defeat of the bonds last month.  Backing the sewer bond passage^    -----  to the limit, the A. S. A., formerly impartial, independent newspapers,  known as the Arcadia “Beer-Bar-ons”, approached Martindale prior to the election and sought to suppress all news whatsoever in the Tribune coming from the anti-local parties.  Disgruntled over the defeat of the bonds, which they believe was due solely to the fact that the Tribune ran a full-page ad coming from the oppponents of the bonds, the "Beer-Barons” asked Martindale to resign from the group at its last meeting. Martindale sent in his letter of resignation this week, the contents of which have not as yet been revealed to the press.  The front-page story carried by the Tribune under the heading “The No Side Of The Sewer Election’’ carried the signatures of the contributors of this article.  Although the full-page advertisement was not signed, it was not an advertisement fostered solely by the Tribune, as was pettily charged by the Arcadia Service Association in “alibi-ing” the defea/t of the bonds, but was taken out by the signers of the story.  “As is the policy of all legitimate  the columns of the Tribune have always been open to Mr. and Mrs. John Public, the real bosses,” Martindale said today. ..“A check back on our editorials long before the election date was ever set will show that the Tribune has, and still does, advocate an adequate sewer system for the city of Arcadia. But the Tribune has never in the past, and  will not now, cater to any small group or clique, or high pressure the public with one-sided publicity. This paper will fight for what the people want every step of the way.” “The Tribune will never allow it-\ self to be throttled down by any one organization,” Martindale emphatically declared. “Its columns are open to one and all, and all sides of every civic enterprise or undertaking can consider this paper a medium whereby all angles can be placed, unbiased, before the public.” “We must remember”, said Martindale, “that freedom of the press is one of the foundations of our American liberty.”  WORLD WIDE NEWS FLASHES  From International News Service  DEMOCRATS CHOOSE PHILADELPHIA  WASHINGTON, Jan. 9.—(INS)—Philadelphia today was chosen as the convention city for the Democratic Party for 1936.
