THE THEATER > *- • At the New | ,. Bright, sparkling, and played in a I lively tempo, "Sorority House" with ' i Anne Shirley and James Ellison in the j leading roles, came to the New '•Theater Sunday and continues J through Monday. It is one cf the most unique college pictures screened Jn ' many years. Detouring from the usual campus formula, it throws the spotlight on certain Greek-letter campus groups. Ann Shirley is delightful as a small i town girl who realizes a cherished am' bition when her father a grocery store , owner, manages to get enough'money to send her to college. There she v learns that all the girls yearn to join 'a sorority, but only daughters of .Wealth and social position are prefer;red. : James Ellison turns in a fine por- ftrayal of the most popular upperclass- •jman on the campus. • ' The second double feature "Smug- .gled Cargo" which stars such names as ;Barry Mackay, Rochelle Hudson, j George-Barbier, Ralph Morgan, Cliff {"Ukulele Ike" Edwards and John jWray. | With scores of youngsters who owe i their start in life to Will Rogers.

While Hart does not greatly fear this type of invasion, he points out sabotage agents might be dropped individually or in parties to cut telephone lines, blow up roads and bridges, dislocate troop movements. Until now. England's air program has been tragically slow, says Hart. This may have repercussions since "unfortunately, of all great countries, England is. with the exception of Japan, the most vulnerable to air attacks." Britain is now believed to be building 100 machines a 'month. "Britain's problem," as Hart sees it. "is to prevent quick results—and, above all, to safeguard herself against a knockout blow." Planes Plant Other Things Besides Bombs TUCSON, Ariz.—(/Pj—Airplanes now sweep over the wide open spaces of the southwest, dropping seeds. The aim is to promote growth of food grasses on the range, thus improving grazing conditions. and plans. Units of the French (ank corps were given credit for turning back German attempts to retake captured positions inside Germany. Italy In the Balkans BUDAPEST, Hungary —(/P)— Italy was reported Sunday to have offered new friendship pacts to Yugoslavia and Hungary, adding to the relief of tension which has dominated Southeastern Europe since the war began. Italian radio broadcasts received here said the negotiations, which many observers believed would offer mutual assistance pacts to the two countries, were under way. Reports of the negotiations were confirmed semi- officially in Belgrade, and similiar reports were heard in Bucharest. With Italian diplomacy so far directed at preserving neutrality in the conflict, the small neutral nations of Southeastern Europe saw their chances of staying out of the war heightened by these reported negotiations. Diplomats in this section welcomed prospective collaboration among Italy, Yugoslavia and Hungary as a possible counteraction of the German- Soviet bid for domination in the Bal-' kans. Mussolini Gets Busy Balkan diplomats said Adolf Hitler's speech Friday declaring Germany and Soviet Russia together would settle all Southeastern Europe's problems had spurred Italy to action to establish her own position in a "Icbensraum" (living space). Since the small countries of this area dread war more than they relish the thought of getting revenge for some old or fancied wrong, diplomats believed Italy would maintain peace and neutrality of the area. An authoritative Yugoslav source said the current negotiations were "only the beginning of something much bigger than a mere treaty." Should Yugoslavia and Hungary draw closer to Italy, diplomats said Roumania and Bulgaria might well agree to follow suit. Yugoslavia and Bulgaria agreed last summer, to pursue a common foreign policy, while Yugoslavia and Roumania are old Balkan allies and neither thus far has assumed foroi^n c.blifia- tions without consulting the other. Thus with Hungary and Yugoslavia as a starter, an Italian-led Balkan t'ront might expand quickly. Italy recently has taken steps to win the confidence of Turkey and Greece, withdrawing troops from the Greek frontier in Albania, Russia Making No Demand Other cheering news in the Balkans has been the decrease of armed forces by Roumania and Hungary along their common frontier. It was disclosed • WE, THE' WOMEN' In times of peace a dictator can tell women that their place is in the home—and can even see that they stay there. But when war comes, he has to backtrack. With every stnmgarmed man n soldier or potential- soldier, much of the "men's work" falls to women. It fell to them in the last war, and it is falling to them in this war. In fact, the World War is credited with giving women their first taste of equality in most countries—by opening up all kinds of opportunities. So. "while war destroys women's happiness—and takes nway almost everything she considers precious—it docs give her an economic and pro- frcs*ional chance, never equalled in time of peace. , The last time war set the German women free, their participation in government, in the professions, nnd in business was short-lived. Nazis Sent Them Back Home As soon as the Nazis came to power they shoved women back and ignored «ll they had accomplished in the war years. This time—no matter how the war ends—let's hope the women will have more backbone. That they will stand together and refuse to be put back Well, All Of U» Were Born to Trouble PORT ARTHUR, Tex— W— Before lie even is born, one Port Arthur child is being sued in district court. The unborn child's father wns killed on n construction job nnd the compensation commission decreed that not only should the mother receive compensation but payment also should be made- for the Infant's benefit. The insurance company has nppcnl- cd the decision to the district court and named the unborn babe us one defendant. Blow-flies will drop their bomh- likc eggs through the air onto food that they cannot reach. into the home. They will agnin have » foothold in the business and professional worlds Let's hope they keep those plnc- cs this time. Not just because of our belief that women have a right to make the kind of lives for themselves that they wish, but because while the German women were in the home—the men throw the world into chaos. ' tonight this action had been taken on the suggestion of Yugoslavia. Doubly cheering to Roumania was the assurance—published in Rouman- ian newspapers for the first time today—from Moscow that the Soviet intended to make no demands upon Roumania in the negotiations at the Kremlin with Turkish Foreign Minister Saracoglu. Thus apparently Roumania was relieved of any immediate threat of a simultaneous invasion from Hungary ;m<! Soviet Russia to regain the former Russian province of Bcsarabia and the former Hungarian province of Transylvania. Anti-German Tone Russia's role in Southeastern Europe is expected to be clarified when Sara- coglu returns from Moscow. The Turkish press commented today in strong anti-German terms, giving the policies are further co-ordinated in the conversations in Moscow they may not be as favorable to Germany as Berlin expects. The Hungarian trend was shown by the newspapers which continued to publish Italian articles praising-Italy for her "political clear-sigtedncss." One Italian dispatch said, "In Hungary, as in Yugoslavia, Roumania and Greece it is recognized that mainly owing to Italy no blood is being shed today in Southeastern Europe.

The corridors were dark except for shaded lamps on the nurses' desks. Now and then a red light flashed over a door, reflecting itself in the shining floor. In a brightly lighted room, Marian was being lifted to a rubber-tired cart. She was pale, her eyes black with suffering. She caught Dolly's hand. "You'll go with me?" . Dolly raised her eyes to the still genial face of Dr. Moss. "May I?" He nodded. Marian said, "I'm going to be brave, Dolly. But if I should forget myself, if I should beg for Dan, don't weaken, don't send for him. I've explained how I feel about Dan. I want to be ready for him. Promise me." "I promise." "And—if anything should happen—" She bit a quivering lip. "Yes, dear." •'Tell him that I was brave. Tell him that I was happy to have his baby. Try to make him understand how much I love him—how much I have always loved him." "You'll tell him yourself, darling." Doily held her hand as the cart was trundled down the quiet Hall, She stood by staunchly. When Marian cried out, "Dan— Dan—" she soothed her gently. After that there was blessed oblivion for Marian. * « * *T*HE sun was making a rectan- '•"• gular patch on the carpet when ehe awoke. She stirred and Dolly went to the bed. She kissed Marian's white cheek. "IVs all over, darling," she said. "A girl?" "Yes. Dr. Moss says that she is the most beautiful little girl." "A beautiful little girl. Her name is Glad—Glad Harkness." Marian's long lashes fell, she was asleep. She looked very young and small in the high white bed. They took Glad home after two weeks. Randy and Dolly and a strangely shaken Marian, took her fcome. Randy had been doubtful about the small apartment. He had suggested larger quarters and nurses, a fleet of them, he said. Marian had refused. "No," she had said. "Glad's father is supporting her." « * * ffRYING weeks followed. Mar* ian's strength was slow in returning; the baby's food formula •iad to bjs changed and changed again. The summer heat came early, long scorching days, humid nights. Steadfastly, Marian cared for the baby, letting the housework slide, resting when the baby slept. Her love for the child was something like worship; she watched her development with a half fearful awe. To Marian, the tiny infant was a miracle, a God- given miracle. Randy and Dolly came every day. They quietly installed comforts, an electric refrigerator which the apartment did not afford, fans, linen sheets, which were cooler than muslin. Marian grew thin, blue shadows made hoi- eyes enormous, her hands were rough from daily laundry work. Dolly expostulated, she begged, she even became angry. Randy talked earnestly to Marian. They were friends. What were friends ! for, anyway? He'd send a maid, j two maids—better still, he'd find an apartment near the lake. Marian stood firm. Wearily she reiterated the old theme. "Dan says to stick it out. Dan says if you accomplish a thing yourself,! you have pride—" "But Dan would send you more money if he knew," R;indy argued. "You're losing weight—you'll be sick." "But Glad is gaining—she's all right." "She'd gain faster—" "Dr. Moss says she- is perfect." Marian laid a beseeching hand on his arm. "I'd crawl on my knees to ask for help if the baby needed it. But she doesn't. Dan and I are providing for her. Please let me do this. Please let me do it the hard way." * * * TPHEY let her alone after that, standing by, ready. July was a nightmare of burning heat and parched winds. Toward the end of July, Glad developed a heat rash, she fretted and had a little fever. Marian's hollow eyes became frenzied pools. That was when Randy and Dolly stepped in. Dolly had said crossly, "I guess you can pay a visit to your best friend. I guess Dan wouldn't mind that." They drove for hour:-;, finally stopping at a while collage in the cool dajkness of deep woods. L;ike Michigan danced and sparkled beyond the trees. A fresh little- breeze rustled the leaves. Marian .stumbled as- fhe stepped from the car and Randy carried her to a cool, green and white bedroom. Doing so, he muttered, "And we didn't get you here a moment too soon, young lady. In fact, hardly soon enough." * * * HPHE August days were like a •*• blissful dream- Marian lay in her bed, sleeping, rousing to look witht contented eyes at the baby who, under the able ministrations of the nurse, lost her rash and fever immediately. After a few days, Marian moved to the wide porch swing, there to idly hope and plan and dream. The weeks hurried by and she awoke each morning to new strength. She could feel energy and vitality humming through her veins. She swam and rested, she tanned a beautiful brown, rich color dyed her checks and lips. The baby was a rollicking, pink and while bit of gladness. With the coming of September, Marian realized Ihe lime had come la think about the long trip to Portland. Marian wanted lo go, she was well and strong, the baby was old enough lo travel. Instinctively, she shrank from going. It meant so much, that journey to Portland, so very much. Dan's let- tors had not shown one sign of interest, had given her not one shred of hope. FRED ASTAIRE has the right combination of great acting and dancing to give you more pleasure N Sept. 10, Randy's clinuffeur took them back to the apart" merit. Dolly had made it ready. Thcro was food in the refrigerator. Tho rooms had been cleaned and aired. Marian set a day for her leaving and she; worked toward it feverishly. A few new clothes for Glad, who had outgrown everything, a few conveniences for travel. She- had her own old dresses changed a bit and cleaned. On the last night, with nothing left but a bed and one chair, these to be called for on the morrow, Marian sat in the bare emptiness, the baby in her arms. '•We're going to see your daddy, Glad," she said softly. The baby crowed and kicked and threw her little arms about. She had a straight, strong back and straight, strong legs. Marian often likened her to a rose bud— if a rose bud could have shining blue eyes. Her hair was definitely reddish and Marian loved it. The ends duck tailed engagingly, it was thick and silken. She laughed and hugged the small body. ''We'll see your daddy in a few days," she repeated. "Oh, Glad, will he want us? You're to be my offering, rny precious gift for him." Randy and Dolly took them to the train. Lifting the baby from Marian's arms, Randy said, '•You've got something here, Marian." She laughed. "Naturally I think .so." To herself she said, "I have done one perfect thing. It i» enough to make up for all thg things I didn't do?"
