Dvorak, is making a film to commemorate the 100th anniversary this year of the birth of the late great John Philip Sousa, the March King. "We are trying, to show in this film how Sousa's music, representing representing as it does the spirit of America, America, has come to be bound up with our fundamental loyalties, our love of country," Prof. Dvorak, explains. explains. "Just by listening to 'Stars and Stripes Forever,' 'Semper Fidelis,' Fidelis,' or 'Washington Post March,' we feel like sticking out our chests and saying 'I'm glad to be an American.' That's the effect we're hoping to get." The film will open with shots of the U. S. Marine Band, which Sousa Sousa led, continue with views of the cities he played on his world tours and the Sousa Bridge across the Potomac and public buildings named named for him, and include shipboard scenes because Sousa composed "Stars and Stripes" crossing the Atlantic.

When one man can be sentenced for a car accident which results in a death, I think that another man should also be sentenced, instead of getting away with it. Do you call that justice? I sure don't, and I'm ashamed to call Rhinelander my home town, after a raw deal like that. Cpl. F. J. Meyer APO 42 c-o Postmaster, New York, N. Y. letter Box Groskopfs Say Thanks.
