Lockhart Post Register (Newspaper) - October 27, 1927, Lockhart, Texas THE LOCKHART POST Established 1889 THE LOCKHART REGISTER Established 1879 FORTY-EIGHTH YEAR LOCKHART, TEXAS' THURSDAY, OCTOBER 27, 1927 NUMBER 43 f AIR PROVES GREATEST IN HISTORY GROUNDS THRONGED TO LAST DAY The most extensive list of awards ever issued from a J'air in Caldwell County was that made up last week. It is impossible to publish in full the list of prizes this week because the books in which they were kept could not be obtained. Judges, in making up the lists, did so with the view of facilitating their work and not in form for publishing. In many books, only the name of the one who would receive a cash award was written, seconds and thirds being represented by number of the entry. In order to publish seconds and thirds comparison of entry lists and award lists had to be made. The weather of last week was ideal for a Fair-cool nights and hot days. Old timers used to say that a successful Fair was necessarily attended with plenty of sweat and dust. The afternon races brought out good crowds, except Saturday when people had to cease pleasure and attend for a time to business. The football game Friday between Luling and Lockhart resulted in n score 31 to 6 in favor of l.ockhart. Most interest was manifested in community exhibits, and if those who have made the rounds of Fairs are to be believed, there were none better in any of the county Fairs. j The Post - Register has been fur ni�hed the score sheet of the judges! rind will publish 'he -nine next week.'

This year the poultry department of the Caldwell County Fair was far out in the lead as compared with the! same department of any other fair in I Southwest Texas There were on ex-j hibit nearly one thousand birds consisting of more than 70 varieties. Chickens, ducks, geese and turkeys of all kinds were shown. Those in charge of that department are very much pleased with the increased attention being paid to poultry in this :.ect ion. We also wish to call special attention to the fact that this year the Washington County Poultry Assn. assisted Lockhart in making this splendid show.

MAXWELL MISSIONARY SERVICE The presentation of 'The Big Parade," King Vidor's picture for Metro Goldwyn Mayer of Laurence Stalling^ stirring- World War story �fc the Baker Theatre on Wednesday and Thursday, November 2nd and 3rd., includes a remarkable musical accompaniment composed and arranged by David Mendoza and Dr. William Axt. Col. A. D. Baker, manager �f the theatre has engaged musician* for a special orchestra to play thii remarkable score, and assures us that "The Big Parade" will be the greatest entertainment ever offered in the Baker Theatre. The music, which has been as carefully attended to as the making of the picture, expresses the mood of every scene and follows the action of every character. A short overture embodying "The Big Parade" motif in D majoi'-original with Dr. Axt - opens the picture, and as the boys enlist for service overseas the tunes of 1917 are heard in variations. A rollicking motif from George M. Cohan's "The Little Millionaire" brings on buddy Jim Appcrson, played by John Gilbert. The first theme for the French girl part, enacted by Renee Adoree, i� Maurice Yvain's "La Belote," the merry lilt so often used by Misting-uett. But Melisande also has a special theme of her own, the real love motif of the piece, from Y'Ener's "Druce Fiever," a French composition previously unheard of. Love by conversation book, and the acquirement of the art of gum-chewing, are aptly fitted to "Yankee Doodle learns to Parley Vous Fran-cias." Then the doughboys in the wine cellar, and the French family celebration where the old fellow almost stabs the Yank in "acting out" Verdun, give Axt great opportunities for clever stunts, mixing agitatos of the "Marseillaise" with his own funny crochets. Wisely; the arrangers have shunned the racket of so-called descriptive battle music, preferring the human interest motives. Jim Apperson's serious theme, the mess call and "My Buddy" accompany the trio of buddies into the trenches: in going over the top. an original theme is built up, 'ogether with more than a suggestion of "Yankee Doodle Dandy." Dr. Axt has written a beautiful "Brotherhood of Man" motive for the scene where Jim spares a bayonet thrust and gives his smoke-hungry captive a cigarette. In the later scenes of the picture may be mentioned the weird congeries or jumble of motifs for the hospital awakening theme in G major for Mother Apperson, enacted by Claire McDowell; Bizet's "La Patrie"" overture for the French refugees; together with the reassembly and variation of earlier persona! themes for the denouement, and ending with "Douce Fievre" in fortissimo. This score will be played at both matinee and night performances. There will be a special matinee for the school children Thursday starting at 4:10 p.m. This matinee is delayed ! to give the school children an oppor-I tunity to see the picture from the ; start, with all music and effects of sound. The general admission for both matinees and both nights will be 25c and 50c. THE WOMAN'S CLl'B at in in Next Sunday is Missionary Day the Maxwell Lutheran Church.
