rent trend of basing films on the

of Norway." the operetta based on
the life and music of Edward Grieg
which has played on Broadway for
the last two years. The sum of
$200,000 in cash and a promise of
25 per cent of the profits was in

guarantee that the film will be
photographed in Technicolor and a
verbal understanding that Deanna
Durbin will appear as Louisa
Giovanni, the opera singer who
captivated the composer.
The battle for Academy awards

pictures which are likely to be in
the winning circle are: "Duel in
the Sun," "The Yearling," "The
Razor's Edge," "The Jolson Story,"
and "Arch of Triumph."

Irene Rich is doing well since

In her role in Cecil B. De Mille's

Because work on the Alan Ladd

still bearing the scars of his crash
in an experimental plane on July

piloted the plane himself.
Kenny Delniar, radio actor,

Men who are within the draft
ages and who have not served in
the armed forces during the recent
war are now eligible for enlist
ment in Hie National Guard, Adjt.
Gen J. Van B Metis was notified
recently by the War Department,
The previous ruling was that
men within draft ages could not be
enlisted in the National Guard un
less they had been honorably dis
charged alter service during the
The new regulation provides that
WASHINGTON Justice Depart
ment officials indicated the govern
ment may be ready soon to seek
treason indictments against addi
tional Americans who aided the
Axis during the war.
They said many persons whose
names have never been disclosed
are now being investigated for trea
sonable activities in Germany, Italy
and Japan. When the necessary
facts and witnesses can be gath
ered, they will be formally prose
cuted. The existence of additional trea
son cases was disclosed after the
announcement that two men al
ready indicted on the Infamous
charge are being brought back here
from Germany to stand trial.
They are Robert Best, formerly
of Sumter, S. C, one-time news
paper correspondent; and Douglas
Chandler, formerly of Baltimore,
Md. In their cases, new indict
ments to include new facts prob
ably will be asked.
Fifteen Germans who were cm
ployed by the Nazi's radio propa
ganda organization, Rundfunk, also
are being brought here to serve as
witnesses in the trials.
At the same time it was disclosed
there was not sufficient evidence
to warrant prosecution of treason
indictments against Edward Leo
Delaney, formerly of Olney, 111.,
and Constance Drexel, formerly of
Philadelphia, Pa. They were being
held with Best and Chandler.
Justice Department officials first
reported and then denied that Mil
dred E. Gillars, of Portland, Me.,
who broadcast propaganda for the
Germans as Axis Sally, would be
brought back with Best and Chand
ler. Like the two men she had been
found sane and able to stand trial
In event the government decided
to seek her indictment. A fourth
person, an unidentifed man who is
a native of Minnesota, has been
found insane by army psychiatrists
and no action is intended in his
case. He probably will be brought
here soon for hospitalization.
The indictment that named Best,
Chandler and Delaney and Drexel,
also named ciht oilier Americans.
NO RATS, SNAKES HUNGRY
JACKSON, Miss. The recent
rat eradication campaign conducted
here was too efficient, according
to I. E. Bennett, manager of the
city's zoo. He can't find any rats
to feed his snakes and has ap
pealed to residents of the city for
rats live ones for the reptiles.
Of these Ezra Pound, poet, already
has been found insane and hos
pitalized by court order here. He
was returned to this country last
year for trial.
The others included Frederick'
Wilhelm Kaltenback, formerly of
Dubuque, Iowa, who d.ed in a
Soviet prison; Max Otto Koisch
witz, formerly of New York City,
who was believed to have died in
Germany two years ago, though
proof was never found; and Jane
Anderson, formerly of Atlanta,
Ga., who disappeared in Germany
just before VE-l)ay and has never

men between 18 and 29 may enlist
in the National Guard without such
prior service, provided that they
agree to accept a discharge from
the guard if their draft boards cer
tify that they are to be drafted.
Officers of the Adjutant Gener
al's office said the new ruling will
aid materially in recruiting the 13,-OOO-man
National Guard in this
