with varying degrees of luck. "Howlin" Mad" and I both lost on a nag called Sea Isle. A dinner, consisting of cold cutK, was served at tho M»rlt>o haao, Camp Peiidleton, and the show followed In the largo amphitheater. The first halt con- slHted of live entoi taiuers Including Put O'lli'lon, Carmen Miranda, Yvonne do Carlo {who \V:IK a great favorite), Don Ameche uiul others. Oh yes—tho picture. "Guest Wife" Ife another exhibit in the current crop of movie farces which producers apparently think Iho public, wants nud needs. Like most of them. It throws a lot of pleasant people Into a fantastic and uncomCorlnhlu situation. • • * tint, unlike most clnemrt farces, "Guest Wife" was accomplished with a maximum of pleasantness and good humor. H In n picture, which won't start any trends or revolutions, hut should please most of the cash "customers. The picture deals with n guy who lets his wife pose as his host friend's wife in order to plense tho friend'a boss who thinks lie is married. If you are.n't nh.'ra lo follow mo, It may ho. hccnuse I wasn't too sure of the plot myself. Claudotle Colbert hua mastered the motion picture medium and delivers n performance that virtually flawless. Don Ameche exhibits a lino style aa a come- dlun, a tnlent which 20th Contury- Pox apparently overlooked. Richard Koran, formerly seen mostly ou horses, is ablt support. LOOKING AT LIFE ———By Erich Brandeis——When I got through rending my morning paper todny, I fell pretty much out of sorts. The whole world seems to he In a turmoil Labor troubles, war orimirmlK to ho tried, .):i|i:in still talking about, a twenty years struggle—so many things way beyond my understanding nml beyond any possibility of my doing anything about them. And then I openod my mall which Paul Kominack. our rural currier, had just delivered to Ooiu:e who always waits at tho mi,II box for him nnd then proudly brings It !n to me, head high suul tail wagging. When [ got through rc.-ullng II all was right again with tho word: OM<1 a lut of those big problems* had faded into insignificance. There was n throe-page loiter from Mrs. Kliznholh Fox, not iiiionl Japan or Do Ontille or Sen ntor Hillio, hut tolling mo that IHR Week the piaster fell from hoi kitchen relliug ":iml, man, is thn ;i mess!" There was another one fron Mrs. Durham In Dayton, tolling m< "Ihe enhbagos uro bonding up fine which means lots of siiiiorkniu next nulumn—as well as man other good things of the oarth." And Mrs. Durham enclosed n poem written by a Judge Henrj Hoy Seolmati of Crockett. Texas of which one verso goes like this "Three monkeys sat In a cocoanut tree, "Discussing things ns they're supposed to he. "Said one tn tho others, 'Now listen yon two. " 'There's a certain rumor that can't bo true; 'That man's descended Irom our race 'The very idea's a big disgrace'." Another letter was from Charoy <!uy, who publishes tho Avn- nnche-.louriitil in Lubhock, Tex., nvltltig me to come out to visit "I will guarantee you," he writes, "that when you como to jiibliock, the heart of tho cow lountry, we will furnish you a letter isloiik Mum any other place can produce." There were more letters like hat and the reason 1 am telling you about thorn is so that you nay worry a llttlo loss about all hat front-pugo stuff you read In •our papers. As loug us the world goes on hern will he big troubles about which you can do very little. And as long us tho world goes on there will he little troubles and itllo joys which mean nothing in tho pages of history but a gosh larn lot In the pugcs of your own life. Charley Guy finished his letter: "V/hen you come. 1 shall, as we say lu this country 'put. tlie liig pot in the little one for you'." Pulling Ihe big pot in the liitle one might mnko lit'o a hit more, pleasant, for all of ns.
