And the second is "an insult to the Italian soldier, who has won three wars." A revival of the film will not be looked upon lightly by Rome, even if no Italian ever sees it: for. says Fascist Bigwig Robert Farinacci. "defamation, calumny and insult would remain even if the film were shown in the smallest Broadway house." * * * N OW it takes a pretty touchy people to get so stirred up by ' a couple of movies. There is, indeed, something rather ridiculous about a nation which insists that it is the reincarnation, of Caesar's Rome being so mortally offended at the thought that someone, in some suburban movie house _ in America, may see a moving picture which shows the Italian ica, mttv sec it UIUVUIK UH.LUIC niu^n onu«o m^- ^.~.«..—•• , . . iShe-prOCeSS Of retreat A nation Which really felt that causes may be concerned m any ,n«Uy . . . in .'_ i ..1.1 i._..,IT ^x.,..,r virminl case. it was great, mighty, and all-powerful would hardly worry so much about so insignificant a slight. Which indicates, perhaps, that the dictator-states—and tney all aeem to? be just as touchy on these matters as Italy 15—don't believe in their own boasts. They bruise too easily. * * * B UT there is another side to it which isn't quite so funny. It is quite possible that this counter-offensive from the 'land of Fascism may have some effect on the kind of dramas American movie-goers may see in their own theaters. Moving picture companies do a big export business; they can't always afford to-get in wrong with a European government, for fear of reprisals. It has happened before that Holly wood, has laid off of certain subjects, certain stories, and certain.methods of treatment, in order to avoid the ill-will of one or another of the dictators. And that is carrying things a bit too far. As long as the uniformed braggarts of'Europe confine their war on freedom and. truth to their own lands, we can't complain much. But when they exert a censorship—and that is what it amounts to—over the channels of artistic expression in our own country, we have a right to object.

It is, ot course, quite conceivable that several of these vidiual case. Methods of treatment are both medical and surgical. The decision as to what form oC treatment is to be used varies with the individual case. In the case of James Roosevelt, it was decided to do surgery. The surgeons, it is reported, removed the ulcer and then did an operation whereby the food will pass directly from the stomach to the intes- :ine beyond the duodenum. This type of short-circuit operation, called gas- troenterostomy, has been established as useful in preventing the formation of further ulcers. Household Chores Need Never Bury Mother in Mental Rut, South'* Story Is Told Agnlli The South, the Civil War and reconstruction hnve proven fertile fields for the novelist these days. But. there is still room for a very good .story of this period within a book of 300 or •100 pages at thhe most. This is likely to be your fellini! after you've gone through the 712 pages of Laura Krey's latest contribution lo the list, "And Tell of Time" Hbugh- ton, Mifflin: $2.75). Mrs. Krey has written a distinguished novel, but il seems lo this reviewer that she might well have nut it in half and still have presrved he narrative. Il would bo fulile lo attempt' here, for instance, to sketch the plot, laid against the whole era of American istory from tho Civil War to lliu early 890's, from Virginia I" the Bruxos mntry of Texas. The story winds liefly around Cavin Darcy and his vile, Lucina. but it harks back to Cain's father and it sweeps across the cars unto the third generation.

Women got a little tired of hearing they were not keeping up with their husbands, so they put on their hats and went out to learn. Soon they were not only keeping up with the men, but in many cases doing all the supporting. Let it go. You know without my mentioning it, that almost any woman with an extra hour or two a day on her hands, can read and learn and absorb enough to keep step with her husband. What many do not know, however, that they must keep step with the children. Perhaps I should not make it so a hitrary. There is no "must" about after all.

And there is no real reason why you aren't entitled to something you want to do, if everyone else in the family is doing what he wants to do. There is the library. Maybe you do find time for popular fiction. That's fine. Everyone likes to be in the know, and to say she has read the latest novel. But hark: out of every four books, why not make one a study book?

Almost invariably there is an over- ibundance of activity and shouting, and too many copy boys the sprinting .iround. and the walls of the editorial room are plastered with hand-letterec maxims such as "Keep It Short" and 'Check Every Name." No exception to these movie traditions is Warners' "Unfit to Print," in which Pat O'Brien and Joan Blondel are playing their usual roles in a usua story. But this set contains the mos glaring error I've ever noticed: a sigi that cautions: 'Be 'Sure Your Right." Not "you're," but "your"—the mis applied possessive would send shud dors around any newsroom copy desk If the studio wants to wriggle out of it, the claim could be made that the error was commited deliberately to provide question for sharp-eyed fans in the 250,000 Movie Quiz contest.

Fishbein discusses the subject of ulcers of (lie stcmadi and duodenum.) Steadily the number of deaths from ulcer of the stomach and the duodenum has been rising in recent years, particularly the mortality among men. The mortality among women has decreased. Nobody knows why. A gastric ulcer affects the stomach; duodenal ulcers affect that portion of the intestine which follows immediately after the stomach. It is called the duodenum because the ancient Greeks said it was "12 fingers long." Just why. human beings have gastric ulcer and why more and more men arc- getting ulcers now has not been determined. True, the stomach and intestines are subjected to a good deal of wear and tear in the digestion of foods; but dogs fill their stomachs with bone and other unchewed and indigestble material and apparently do not suffer with ulcers of the stomach. The human being has infections ol various sorts, particularly with the germs called streptococci, yet some people get dliers and others do not Many people with chronic infections of the nose and throat fail to develop ul- cers of the stomach, whereas others who apparently have not had such infections will develop ulcers'. Signifi- i cantly, pcoplu who do a great deal of. haid work and worry have ulcers more ' often than do those who do not. The- sfLTelion of the stomach is acid.
