Monday and Tuesday "Once I'pon a Time." Columbia's newest comedy starring Cary Grant and featuring Janet Illair. opens Sunday at the Wabash Theatre. Said to be a delightful whimsy, it was adapted by Lewis and Oscar Saul from the original story of the famous ra dio writers Norman Corwln and Lucille Flecher Herrmann. In the hospital following a minor operation. Screen Writer Ken Eng-lund was asked by a doctor if he would move out that no rooms were available and an emergency case was coming in. Englund agreed. As he walked out of the room, the new patient was being rolled up the hall. It was his studio boss, Louis B. Mayer. Rattler, Chipmunk, Woman The rattler bit the chipmunk, the chipmunk bit the woman and the woman was in "fair" condit'on r Good Samaritan hospital, Suffern, N. Y., with symptoms "about the same" as if she had been bitten by the snake, according to Dr. Robert p. Odenwald. That summarizes an unusual accident that occurred on the rear lawn of Mrs. Catherine Petheram. Mrs. Petheram was chatting with Mrs. Harvey J. Conk-lin, wife of a local undertaker, who lives near by. JAPS FACE DISASTER Before the war began, the Japanese bosted that they possessed numerous "un-sinkable aircraft carriers" in the form of islands that studded the waters through which our ships must move to atack Ja- Pan- i The spectacular advance of our fleet across the Central Pacific is highlighted by the recent action in the Bonin Group, where ships and planes attacked several islands, wiping out a Japanese town within 600 miles of Tokyo, sinking eleven ships and damaging 30 other craft. Intelligent Japanese leaders cannot fail to appreciate this accomplishment, made despite our participation in a major war against Germany. They will not fail to note the strength of the American striking arm or the significance of what will happen when Great Britain and the United States turn their undivided atention to the Japanese. We have no idea as to the war plans that are being readied for execution a-gainst the Japanese, but the possibility exists that the acquisition of bases, close to Japan, will enable the Allied nations to establish a blockade at sea while pounding Japanese ports, cities, facilities and in-atallntinnn from the air. Postivel- nothing to the engagement and marriage rumors concerning her and Clark Gable, insists Kay Williams. "We're pals, it's lust happy days in Dixie," she says. Look for John Carroll to be back n the movies any day. His two years and three months in uniform came to an official end with a discharge following a plane accident in Italy. Johnny did a good job. Came up the hard way, holding every rank except warrant officer, from private to captain. He served as an overseas aide to Brig. Gen. Ed Morris of the Air Corps. Through his knowledge of French ar.d Italian, was able to render valuable service. Johnny says Bruce Cabot has an apology coming from anybody v.-ho even dreamed of believing those wild rumors. Bruce was a fine soldier, he says, and would have been a hero, given a chance, because he is without fear. "And Cabot's no ral of mine." says Johnn'. "It just happens to be true." What do you know? The Dorsey-Sinatra feud is so completely patched up that Frankie Boy will be Tommy's radio guest Sept. 17. . . . The Veronica Lake-Director Andre De Toth romance has not chilled far from it! . . .

"I'm going back to New York as soon as my picture is finished and John and I might even be married then." . . .

Once their sources of supply have been destroyed and they have been isolated from the homeland, the plight of Japanese soldiers in China and the islands of the Pacific will be desperate. U. S. FIGHTERS IN RUSSIA American fighter aircraft operating from U. S. bases in Soviet Russia, in cooperation with the Red army's drive through the Lwow region of southern Poland, may play an important part in the campaign. Certainly, if our air force manages to Becurc superiority in that area it will blind the German army and pave the way for surprise Russian advances. In addition, they will continue to whittle the luft-waffe. The Lightnings and Mustangs of the 15th Air Force, based upon Italy, are fighting the battle cf the United Stale against Germany as they operate from bases in Russia. They are not there to aid the Russians but to carry war to the enemy of their country and to secure the enemy's defeat. ,The same observation obviously applies to lend-lease goods, which we have shipped to the Russians. The trucks, t:inks, planes, guns and supplies that we have delivered to the Soviet, to assist its war effort, serve the cause of the United States. That is the explanation and the justification of their dispatch. WASHINGTON Hiland G. Batchel-ler, vice chairman of the WPB: "If the government will let industry alone, and. if industry recognies its obligation to maintain full production and employment and its duty to small enterprise, we won't have any reconversion problem. All wii need is 90 per cent of the ingenuity displayed during the war." t nns VTI.I.f: Itv Gov. Thomas E.I finish your dinner. Sam and Hilda will be here before you know it. Toward the middle of summer, Judith, working overtime at her volunteer service, picked up a par- ticularly virulent type of summer deeper. Mother and wife, she thought, yet we can't discuss him. Not any more than this. We shouldn't, this much. .We both love him; that's the one salient thing. I suppose. "Matthew is a good deal older than you," Mary began. "If you say 'and wiser,' lU scream." "You look as if you meant that,-said Mary, and added hastily, "All right, lamb, I won't say it." She thought, a little alarmed: What is the matter with her? I suppose she hasn't wholly recovered yet. But it isn't like her to develop nerves. The telephone rang and Mary was called indoors to talk to Lynn Mortimer. She same back, smiling. "Lynn's coming for the weekend," she reported. "I do hope Mat? thew gets here; they havent seen each other in some time, have they?" "No," Judith answered, "not for a month or two. He dined with us, earlier this summer." "I haven't seen him either," Mary said, "he's been away a lot. His wife hasn't been so well lately." "It's an intolerable burden," observed Judith; "I feel so sorry for him." "He doesn't consider it burden." Judith said shortly, "Well, it is." She had all the impatience of youth with these dead-end situations. "He eould have divoreed her, couldn't he?" she asked. ''Some states permit it, don't they?" "Yes, but that wouldn't be his way," declared Mary, rather shocked. "You can't abandon your wife because she is ill, and that is just the situation, Judith. She's ill." "Hopelessly and incurably. Isn't that so?" "As accurately as any doctor can determine," agreed Mary. "But if it was physical ... if she was dying, over a long period of time, say, cancer, would you feel the same?" "Of course not!" "There is no difference," said Mary. "There's a lot," argued Judith, "at least so it seems to me. And he hasn't had any life at all. For years. If she were a physical invalid, well, he'd have her near, and her companionship at least. That would be something. But he hasn't m m IZ. 13 I is lb- n "- 19 "" zi ir " p 2A Z5 2b Zb 29 mM Mm Jft 37 39 I 'A . .

He was so utterly distracted that her heart think about having a baby? One thing I haven't been is a grandmother. I'd like it, you know, while I'm still young enough in appearance, at least, to expect people to say, "You a grandmother, how ridiculous!" Judith told her, "Yes, I've thought about it." (She looked across the table at her mother-in-law and thought that it would indeed be ridiculous. Mary was looking prettier and pretty was the word than Judith had ever seen her and ten years younger than her actual age.) "But Matthew savs that there's plenty of time." "Well," said Mary comfortably, Tm being selfish. He's right; he's just thinking of you." "Are you sura of that?" asked Judith slowly. The tall candles in their hurricane shades burned steadily. There were roses on the table and you could hear the thunder of the nearby sea. "Naturally," said Mary a little impatiently, "of whom else? You'd have to have the baby, wouldn't you? And I suppose he's worried." "By Irene, you mean?" asked Judith. "Please, Mary, don't look so shocked, I don't mind talking about her. I liked her," she added firmly. "But she didn't die because she had a baby, Mary. She died because of an automobile accident. So, that's no explanation." "Nevertheless," said her mother-in-law soothingly, "he probably knows best. You're still very young, and entitled to some carefree years." "You didn't wait," Judith reminded her. "No," Mary admitted, "and I don't mind telling you that I didn't want a baby. I was afraid, for one thing; I feared too that I'd lose my attraction for Matthew's father. He was the one who was delighted, not L When the nurse put Matthew in his arms for the first time he couldn't speak. I think we both cried, a little. He was such a boy himself," said Mary, low, looking back. It was so far away, it seemed somehow like a dream once dreamed. "And of course, all my life since I've been grateful on my knees. Because if I hadn't had Matthew then " Judith said sturdily, "What about me? Something might happen to Matthew, you know." "Don't say it!" warned Mary sharply. "Don't even think it!" Then she asked, "You've quarreled about this?" Judith replied, smiling faintly, "You don't exactly quarrel with Matthew. You may try but you don't get far.

She worried about him. Dr. Korman was strong as an ox. of course,, and with the most tremendous vitality. He hadn't had, according to Mary, a really sick day in his life. But suppose he was to be ill now? As Judith grew stronger, she tried to think their relationship through to some conclusion. Perhaps being away from him was a good thing. She missed him terribly, she wanted him near her always, she lived for his infrequent letters and his daily telephone call. Yet in a way it was good to be by herself, not yet strong enough to be disturbed emotionally by the separation, and to try to think. If only she could talk to someone. But her mother was very far away and, in any event, would not have understood. Eva was of the generation that is embarrassed by the intimacies. Mary might understand, although Judith doubted it.

But Mary wouldn't tolerate Bearing that; she'd be perhaps as affronted as Matthew . . . that time, long ago, when Judith had spoken of Mary and Lynn Mortimer to him, and he had hated it, it had disrupted and disturbed all his ideas "I never thought of that," Mary remarked.
