Paramount's colorful, honest screen treatment of a vital contemporary American problem, will bring Bob Burns back to town in a role which is being hailed as the best of his career. When the picture is presented locally for the first time on Sunday at the Saenger Theatre. Bob will be seen as a man who is a lawyer by profession, a philosopher by instinct, a real dyed-in- the-wool, down to-earth, 100 per cent American character who believes in the principal of democracy, of square dealing with his fellow men. As in his other starring, success, Bob is once more aided by a grand sup- portong cast. Numbered among them are Susan Hayward and Joseph Allen, Jr., members if the "Golden Circle," Select group of young Paramount players slated • for stardom, cast as Bob's daughter and his junior law partner, respectively. The supporting cast alos includes Elizabeth Patterson, Gene Lockhart, as an industrialist, and Charles Bickford as the chief of a gang of strike breakers. The Trvin S. Cobb story Is concerned with Bob's efforts to restore law and order in a thriving American tity when an industrialist puts through a ten per cent pay cut at one of his mills despite the fact that business is good. Bob and his junior partner have been retained as counsel for Lockhart, an dwhen the latter refuses to reconsider, Bob resigns as his counsel. Mill Is Bombed Lockhart's next move is to call in strike breakers. Then agitators arrive in town to urge the workers to meet force with force. Ti cap all, the mill is bombed, and two of the! workers' leaders are killed. Citizen's Meeting is called by responsible membres of the community. Bob spaks in behalf of dispnsing with "isms" with all outside influences which arc causing more trouble in the dispute. Lockhart turns the meeting into a political rally by revoking the pay cut, and announcing that he will nominate Allen for Junior Senator at the forthcoming State Convention. It would be giving away too much of the story to tell how Bob goes into action, deals with the leader of thc strike greakers, Bickford, in a thrilling fist fight, and finally is nominated to rim for the Senate in place of Allen! Of course, there are grand romantic moments in the picture, involving Miss Hayward and Allen. In the course of the spry, Bob has plenty of trouble keeping them togther, but he deals with their difficulties in stirclc. Alfred Santell, who directed Bob in "The Arkansas Traveler," directed the picture. John C. Moffitt wrote the screenplay. Chiang Propaganda Most Effective China's Leader Hooks Loud-Speakers on the Few Radio Sets renting news and other matier that no real objection- can be found. So far the thing is just an Idea. As an idea it has one noteable drawback. The same loudspeaker that would broadcast Yankee mcsagcs of good will also could be used by Hitler. That FCC Order Also you may just as well know that the state department was as much upset as, thc broadcasting companies over that order of the Federal Communications Commission directing the big radio systems to reflect only true American culture in their foreign programs. For months thc state department has been working quietly with the radio companies to design programs I that would reflect American culture ' and help promote the good neighbor policy in Latin America. There was nothing formal or official about it. but it was operating very well. Being patriotic didn't interfere with the revenue from the foreign broadcasts. Not a hatful of revenue comes from these short-wave broadcasts. But just' as the thing was working along,at its smoothest the communications commission, long at odds Within itself, tried to make it official by a formal order. The commission was compelled to repeal it later. The state department had to be its very smoothest to restore the old accord with the broadcasting systems. The Myitery Of The Lojt Colony POT ALBERNI, B. C.—W)—Scientists hope that prospectors pressing toward the remote Wass lake nreii on Vancouver island may solve the mystery of a Chinese colony established at Nootka 150 years ago. Settlel by the British, the Chinese were reportedly seized by Spaniards and put to work digging gold. Lnter they fled, taking some native women with them. Reports 1 'have reached civilization occasionally of n strange tribe in thc interior of thc island, which may be the mixed race.

"Yes, I was drunk—plenty drunk," admitted a defendant before the judge. "And I'll get drunk any time I want to. As long as a man can pay 1 for his beer he has a perfect right! to get drunk.

Chiang uses loudspeakers to broadcast bis propaganda. Reports here say it is tremendously effective. It is hard for the Japanese to .stop. An ordinary radio will do in a pinch i It is tuned in on one of General Chiang I broadcasts, with the volume up, it can i reach dozens of Chinese who otherwise i never would hoar a word of what is! ?oing on except through the Japa-i nese. Chiang broadcasts in 18 dialects I during the day, urging Chinese unity. | t is his only way of reaching bis j people. Probably not one in ten thou- ] and owns a radio. I In Latin America a similar situation j fcxisu-j. It is estimated there are two , i;)d three-fourths million receiving sets l in Latin America. Only a fraction] .1 those are all-wave sets capable of' •eceiving short-wave broadcasts from i '-he United States, Germany, or Italy. There Is a Catch Moreover, it i s likely that the bulk c/ those Eall-wave Sets arc owned in upper social brackets. That means that foreign broadcasts likely reach) only ;j restricted list. ! But a different situation would deve- [ 'op if ;j few shops were indused j to face their radios out into the street I v.lic-K; op-country natives, in for the j market, might listen to what is going ; on in (he world as related by foreign broadcasters. j Officials looking into the idea re- , cogni/.e difficulties.
