Korea Topic of Discussion for Sorority Dr. Rodger B. Smith of the Park hospital clinic, talked about Korea and its customs at the "International Nigh t" meeting of Gamma Sigma chapter of Beta Sigrna Phi sorority Tuesday evening at the Mutual Insurance building. International Night was observed by many of the 80,000 members of the sorority throughout the United States, Canada, Alaska, Hawaii, England, Scot- land, Japan, Guam, Canal Zone, Germany and Cuba on Oct. 4. A typical Korean dessert made from a recipe given by Mrs. Smith was served after the discussion. Dr. Smith described the country itself, its location, languages and customs, and history. Regarding the political situation he said, "Perhaps the biggest problem that faces the Korean people today is fear—fear of insecurity, fear of political unrest. Korea is again the crossroads of the Orient. A struggle is going on there between western concepts of democracy and the communistic ideologies. Dr. Smith displayed Korean books and pictures for the members to look over. Special guests included Miss Mindy Scott, international repre- sentatives of the sorority from Kansas City, Mo.; Mrs. Smith, the Misses Mary Lou Balduf, and Connie Nel.tleton, and the Mines. M. S.

Free Pick-Up and Delivery I do not see eye to eye with her where movies are concerned, although I do not consider the cinema to be a great educational force. I attend a Ricture show merely to be amused. I have found in a life of many movies that, ordinary creature that I am, it is not necessary always to be astounded by the super- colossal. I am content if it is mildly entertaining. Why then do I insist on seeing at least part of almost every movie that comes to town? The answer is ... I desire entertainment ... diversion . . . . relaxation. I get all three at the movies. Sometimes I am so diverted that I get more than one laugh in a couple of hours. Doctors say that is 'good for anyone. A laugh a show ought to keep folks going to the movies. i- I am of the opinion that viewing a movie is like viewing the landscape along a highway. Some of it is extra-interesting, some of it is not interesting at all, and quite a lot of it is just mine-run scenery. So it ia with the movies . . : but isn't that about how Jife goes, so why should we expect pictures portraying life to be much different? As I sit here writing this piece, I can recall four movies in the past few months that gave me great pleasure. A LETTER TO THREE WIVES. . . Witty and sitsl>eHsefu[ \t had good lessor for all -wives. . i • and husbands, too. A CONNECTICUT YANKEE IN KING ARTHUR'S COURT . ..

Claudette Colbert enhances an* film. LITTLE WOMEN . .. Just the simple old story, (rut to the loved old look and as poignant today as it was when written. Four extra-interesting diversions along my movie-going highway. PRISCILLA WAYNE (Mis* Wayne's Comment UM<! with pcrmiMioo of The Dem Moines Tribune)
