for additional tourist patronage

The movies, all in color, were
made by Dei-mid MacLean who did
a real good job of photography.
The Beaufort Rotarians saw quite
a few local scenes, namely, the
summer school units of Beaufort

Opening on Sunday for a three

Canova, Bob Crosby, Charles But

Haywood and a batch of other top
ranking stars. This is the talkie
version of the silent picture of
years ago in which Mabel Nor
mand, one of the old time Mack
Sennett Bathing Beauties was fea
tured. It is a story about a country girl
who goes to the city and every
thing has been modernized in the
film to make it one of outstanding
comedies of the year.

it is not because they are dissatis
fied because they are in Service
it is because they want to be on
the go they want to be in action.
This is quite different from some
of the angles I have heard from
Selectees. Some Selectees need
something I don't know what to
make them have more respect for
the military force in which they
are serving. Perhaps a bit of War
would help matters out and don't

ner That "just around the cor
ner" idea may work out in this age
just as it worked out when Mr.
Hoover was telling the world about
what was just around a corner. .
Perhaps we will never get around
the corner. However if I had to
predict what is going, to happen I
would say: "WAR AFTER THE
AUTUMN MANEUVERS" and I
am talking about a War that is
going to call an American Expe
ditionary Force to a foreign land
for scrapping. It is ridiculous to
think that we don't want to start
shooting until attacked. Get them
on the other side that is our idea
and see if our Government does
not share a similar idea about the
time the Autumn maneuvers in
this nation are ended.
