“Them lovely bums,” those daffy,
delightful Brooklyn ball players, are
coming to town. Not on the baseball
diamond, but on the screen of the
Plymouth Theatre on Monday, in
20th Century-Fox's riotous comedy.
“It Happened In Flatbush.”
Telling the story of baseball's
“whackiest” team and its three mil
lion rabid, raving fans, the film goes
all out for entertainment. And ac
cording to preview critics, “It’s a
double-header for thrills!”
Lloyd Nolan, playing the scrappy,
fast-talking manager of the Dodg
ers, a role quite different from any
thing he’s done before, is said to
score a clean hit with his audience
pleasing performance. He won the
role by his ability to master “Brook
lynese” and his masterful shouting!
Curvaceous Carole Landis creates

WPB Chairman Nelson No

statement:
“During this year of war there
have been no full holidays in war

necessary to do this, because of

“More than ever before in our
lives, I suppose, we need this year
to pause from our labors on
Christmas Day and think deeply
and humbly about the faith by
which we live, in order that from
the profound promise of this day
we may draw the hope and the
vision which we must have. On
the birthday of the Prince of
Peace we can and should rest
from the production of the wea
pons of war. . . .
“After the holiday, we must
drive ahead with renewed ener

job of 1943—a bigger job than
we have ever faced before.”
Unusual Mystery In
Picture Booked To
Play Here Tuesday
---
Four Different Versions of
Same Crime Told by
Witnesses
Pour pairs of eyes saw the crime;
but four pairs of lips told different
stories, while a man's life hung in
the balance—proving that, when
it’s murder, seeing isn't always be
lieving! But previewers who have
seen 20th Century- Fox’s latest baf
fler, “Thru Different Eyes,” which
plays at the Plymouth Theatre next
Tuesday, insist that it's one of the
most unusual mystery thrillers of the
year.
Tantalizingly unfolded in the
flashback manner, the story concerns
the ribulations of a county district
attorney beset by an unfathomable
killing and a meddlesome wife.
As far as the state is concerned,
the case was closed with the convic
tion of the fiance of the D. A.’s own
niece. That’s where the missus steps
in. She is very close to her niece
and, since her intituition tells her
the guilty one is still at large, she
takes matters into her own hands.
Producer Sol M. Wurtzel happily
put a balanced cast of popular vete- |
rans and attractive young players at
the disposal of Director Thomas Z.
Loring. Frank Craven, of “Our
Town” fame, appears as Steve Petti
john, the benighted prosecutor.
Marge, his intuitive wife, is played
by June Walker, favorite of the
Brodway stage, while Mary Howard,
Vivian Blaine, George Holmes, Don
ald Woods and Jerome Cowan are in
screen play by Harold Ruchman and
Lee Leob.
Find out for yourself when “It
Happened In Flatbush” plays Mon
day at the Plymouth Theatre, why it
could ONLY happen there!

Private Life of Literary
Genius Portrayed by
Able Cast
-
The little known private life of
America's most colorful literary gen
ius is the exciting subject of another
outstanding biographical film from
20th Century-Fox, “The Loves of Ed
gar Allan Poe,” coming to the Plym
outh Theatre next Sunday.
Surpassing his own startling stor
ies, the realistic film brings to the
screen all of the drama that was
Poe's life. Utilizing an unusual
method of presentation, it takes full
advantage of the story possibilities
of America’s first and greatest liter
ary genius. Poe's bold mode -of life,
his struggle for respect in a hostile
world and the willingness of women
to pay the price for living him con
stitute one of the most thrilling true
volved in the romantic, as well as the
lethal, aspect of the picture. The
script is an original by Samuel G.
Engel.

Hand-picked for the role from
among a score of Hollywood’s lead
ing men, John Shepperd portrays the
great poet. Like Poe, John was born
and reared in the South, and his
thorough understanding of Poe, as
well as his sensitive performance,
has won him praise from previewers.
Linda Darnell was a unanimous
choice for the part of Virginia
Clemm .the Baltimore belle who wed
Poe. It called for the most drama
tic effort of her career, and the
characterization is calculated to win
the stunning young star new legions
of admirers. Under the artful direc
tion of Harry Lachman, the stars are
handsomely supported by a cast of
favorites, including Virginia Gilmore,

Plan For Farmers To Get
Tires, Parts Enough for
Necessary Trucking
(Official Press Release By Office of
War Information!
No farmer is to be put out of busi
ness as a result of the ODT Certifi
cate of War Necessity plan, ODT
stated December 1. As long as the
tires, spare part, and gasoline are
available, the ODT will help every
farmer get enough tires, spare parts
and gasoline to carry on his neces
sary truck operations.
Any farmer who is dissatisfied with
the amount of mileage and gasoline
allowed in his Certificate of War
Necessity for his truck or trucks
should take the matter up imme- ;
diately with his county agent, his i
county war board or his county farm
transportation committee who, if
convinced that any farmer should
have been granted more mileage and
gasoline, will make a recommenda
tion to the ODT district manager
serving the county in -which the
farmer lives. All ODT district man
agers have been instructed from
Washington to accept such recom
mendations unless they contain ob
vious errors.
Farmers who have received cert.fi
cates allowing them sufficient mile
age and gasoline for a limited period
are urged to delay filing appeals with
their county farm transportation
committees until those whose certi
ficates contain obvious errors have
been taken care of.
If a certificate does not contain an
obvious error, the farmer's rationing
board will grant him a gasoline ra
tion in an amount provided by the
certificate. In accepting such a ra
tion, the farmer does not forfleit his
right to appeal for an additional
gasoline allowance later.
If a farmer has received a certifi
cate which does not allow enough
gasoline to operate the mileage al
lowed in the certificate or which con
tains other errors, the farmer should
go to his rationing board, present his
certificate and ask for a temporary
transport ration. This ration will be
granted by the OPA board, giving
the farmer enough gasoline to ope
rate until January 1.
