Behind The Movie Sets WITH Hollywood, Calif. — Should you meet a friend and discover that, overnight, his hair has turned gray, perhaps he's been enjoying "escape entertainment." We've been hearing a lot about "escape entertainment" of late. Frankly, we've always thought that ALL entertainment offered us a temporary escape from our I own daily problems. * * * But, if seems ih»*i ar* escapes — and narrow-escapes — in the theatrical field. Especially, in films. One serves to remove you from the scene of your everyday cares to a different locale and the difficulties of make-believe people who couldn't possibly be you. The other, it appears, is literally "out of this world!" A 4 , least, as far as reality is concerned. This one often takes you to places completely off the beaten-path of conventional, behaving planets. There, from your theatre seat, you may help a rocket-crew hide in a cave twice the size of Grand Central Station. The general idea being that this rocky haven is too small to permit the scaly, triple-size, prehis- SttB IT HBRBI B^li uSm *iim ' WORLD of, p NEW Kodak 300 NEW Brownie Star CAMERAS ma k* tolof »IU«* at wtll at «nap«hoN NEW Kodak Rotary NEW Kpdak Medallion MOVIt CAMMAJ »«• movl, malcm CAMERA CORNER toric monsters, who are playing hide-and-seek with the New York cast, to get a foot in the "door." « * » With thii type of departure from the realm of monthly installments, and the high cost of keeping up with the Jonesabilts. you really CAN "get away from it all." Which may, or may rret, be better than lowering the quota restrictions for assorted monsters on our own planet. WG have in mind "creatures" that creep out of places like Universal-International's "Black Lagoon," "The She Creature," the monstrous "Voodoo Woman" and that horrible, radio-active, mutant from "The Day The World Ended." • 4 * Mow, there's escape for you! Right on the old, home grounds! If you've ever helped a fe%v members of the Screen Actors' Guild keep a scant two-jumps-ahead of the latest "things" in delirium tremens, for seven spine-chilling reels, you know whbt we mean. It's at least a full week before your IncomeHax deadline or a mess of burned-out motor-bearings can assume the stature ol petty annoyances. In fact, nothing short of a 20-car pileiip on the L.A. Freeway can startle you out of a smug feeling of security that you attained by getting out of the theatre alive! • * • Filmdom's terror-tycoons have thought of everything to lighten the burdens of our hum-drum woes. If you are heir to twice the tribulations of the average man, they've whipped-up double- feature scream-fare' that would give the biblical Job a sense of well-being. • * * Allied Artists recently announced a double-header in this Smelling Salts League that boasts the titles, "Attack of The Crab Monsters" and "Not Of This Earth." They call it a "terror- ama" package! From the names given these films, this team of twin terror-tales should make your blood run so cold that, for at least a week, you'd be able to give transfusions to anemic snakes. Furthermore, while you're sporting goose-pimples as big as goose eggs, what bill collector, or traffic cop would risk coming close enough to you to "catch what you've got?" » » » Double dotes of destructive demons also may furnish just the right "escape" from a sun- scortehed, sweltering, summer's day — if it doesn't take your spine too long to defrost. But don't fall asleep on your way home. There's Such a thing as fooling a new morgue attendant! « * * Which reminds us of thai friend of yours with the sudden crop of tattle-tale gray bedecking his flat-top. You'd bettef look for signs of frost before shaking his hand too warmly. It's downright embarrassing to Withdraw your hand and -suddenly discover you still have five round icicles clutched in your fist! Plum Creek Elite The regular meeting of thd Plum Creek Elite 4-H was held April 13th at the home of Agnes Sigsbee. Janice Bode gave a demonstration and a talk was given by Sara Clark.

Dump Problem AtSweaCity Swea City- — It's an ill wind that blows waste paper out of the town dump onto the fences and neat lawns of nearby farm homes. The dump is two miles out in the country. Quite understandably, the farmers complained to the town council, where they met with a sympathetic attitude. The council thereupon addressed a plea to townspeople' to burn all papers left at the dump ground, suggesting that if they failed to do so, the farmers could have the dump declared a nuisance and closed. City fathers recall with nostalgia the good old days when homes used coal or wood- burning stoves, which handled the waste paper problem very nicely. fleeted Ta Office At a meeting of the Alpha Sigma Chi chapter at Sacramento. Calif. Miss Noreta Trunkhill •was elected to the office of treasurer. The election was held in the lounge of the Federico Beauty College, where Miss Trunkhill is studying Cosmetology.
