Too Many T<ws To Walch ICvcr since tin; moving iikiuru gnul- iiwled from its ok! nickelodeon stains and became a bitf league entertainer, serious folk have bocii wailing ini|m- iicntly for it lo i;ro\v up. Once in a while, to be sure, NUIIIU- lliing like "Snow White" comes along to indicate that Uic movies have indeed grown up—i» spots, anyhow. But for the most part the industry's long adolescence continues, and .siifii.s of maturity ace regrettably J'9\v. It was a big league movie producer— none other than Samuel G'olthvyn—who put his finger on the reason Tor this. Mr. Gohlwyn announced the other day that he was going to make a lilm dramatizing the exiling of the .lews from Germany. 'This promptly raised a storm of protests from the other movie barons, who objected that the American movie business in Gci'mnny would be ruined. So Mr. Gohlwyii replied : "Why should Sam Goldwyn wait 200 years to make a picture of the most dramatic thing that has happened in this generation?" If the movies are lo make any claim to maturity at all, the only possible ;0!sv.'er to- such a ipiesliou is: "He shouldn't," Yet the peculiar conditions under which movies arc produced make it almost impossible 1'or such an answer to. be returned. For Hollywood makes movies for all . llie world, H hn.s lo "guard iU/fortijin markets with the most zealous wire. And if it makes a picture thai offends .•a. totalitarian .government—as, for instance, in Germany—it runs the risk of fating quota restrictions or other reprisals which wilt cut oil' a sizable part of its profits. Consequently the industry has had to surrender its independence. Tt may not offend anyone; an a result, it, must light shy of all the gratf, living issues which are absorbing (lie world today. And as long as it docs that, it cannot pretend to have reached maturity. Now Mr. Goldwyn apparently is going to try breaking this rule, lie proposes, as he says, to "make a film like the newspaper prints the news," telling a i dramatic story as he sees it without worrying about the toes (li;it get stepped on in (he process; and every movie-goer should hope that he remains linn in 'his resolution. The movies will some day tic one of OUT OUR WAY the most tremendously important cultural and educational agencies on earth. They will offer an entertainment that is living, breathing, truly adult. But they won't be and do those things until they find some way of shaking off the restrictions imposed by their slavery to the foreign market. JM\S Sec You Work "Observation in the lield" as the greater part of the business student's course of .study is an idea that's attracting the attention of modern educators. The dean of one business college suggests dial teachers themselves would do well to lake advantage of (his method as a means of realistic business research. The dean points out that the study of statistics is merely tin; study of results, while the study of the business man in hi.s lair is the .study of the .statistics' causes. Something, certainly, of considerable moment is going to come out of this thing. If the studies are to be of any value at all, the paragons of the business worhl aren't going to lie the only specimens examined. And one of tivo lliing.s is likely to happen: cither a great many sharp dealers are going to be forced to do some hasty liouseeleaiiing, of the next generation of business men is going to have an extraordinary number of sharp dealers of exceptional talent. Or maybe what's going to happen is an unprecedented boom in the menial .sanitarium 7Vie liigger the Wlutl How lonjj () 0 y, HI suppose it's going to take the paw.ling mind of man to get over its perpetual aiiur/emeiil of mere bigness? The Eiffel Tower, (no tallest structure in Europe, is not the most, beau- . liful. It is not the most beautiful in' Paris.

At the litlJe Airport Inn, where she and Roger had met so many limes, she ordered coffee and liol, buttered foast. She would maiuifc'e somehow to force flown ;i hide lireakfasl. She Ixiughl ii paper and tried to read for a lime, but since Ihcrc was no news regarding Roger's slralo- Kphcrc fliglit she really did )iot not Icnow wliat she read. Jiivkic consulted her wvisl watch, for the lumdredtli lime, il Jicemcd. Tlie hands had never moved .so slowly. Ihit slie had managed lo put in those two hours. Roger hurt been on his way now about 5',|. hours, niiiyhc a liltle longer. Surely beforc'much longer tliey would be in direct contact with him. She knew the moment she reached the lop step lo the tower that something important was happening. Mac signaled to her wildly to hurry, to come close, at the same lime warning her not lo say anything. Jackie's heart hammered so painfully in her ears that the reports coming from the receiving scls were only a confused, indistinguishable jumble, absolutely meaningless. Then Mac twisted a dial, held up his liiind. "Listen!" he cried. "I think we've got him." He put a linger to his lips again. Jackie pressed close, nerves laul, ears strained. If only her heart would not beat so loudly "JB . . . JBHLP . . ." Roger's call letters! Roger's own voice, so very familiar, first faint, now growing stronger. "JBHLP culling DDK . . ." Those were the radio lower letters. -> * * "()'fi Mac!" Jackie could not restrain Ihc words that - would burst from her lips. Kx- cilcmcnt now was fearful, hcart- filling. "Try lo lime him in clearer, please! We must hear every word of it . . ." "It'll be perfectly clear in n sec- ond," Mae replied. Me twisted the dial once more, readied over to shut of! another frequency. He flicked up the microphone, thai looked like any telephone into which one would ordinarily speak, repealed the radio tower's letters several times. Then Roger's call letters came back, and Roger's voice, distinct wild clear, almosl as though lie In'mself had stepped suddenly into ihc liltle glass tower with them. •'JBHLP calling DRK. . . . Esli- tnatcri position entering border line Pennsylvania. Same- altitude, 35,000 feet. Everything okny." Mae glanced around irium- pluinlly al Jackie's eager, Hushed face. "How's Unit?" lie asked. "You got it all, riidn'l you'.'" "Perfect," Jackie said. She closed her hands together ecstatically. H was jusl as Roger had :l it would be now. She felt as though she were up there with hira in his silver ship. Thu rest ot the world did not exist. She had forgotten that she was supposed to be so angry with Roger lhal she hated him. Anything like that would have seemed too pct- ly, loo insignificant. This moment was supreme, oulshartowing the past, and even (lie future. "He'll come in ;igaiu pretty soon," Mae said. "Is there some message you'd like to have me slip in? May not be strictly wilhin the rules," he flashed her a grin, "but under the circumsiances I guess I could manage it." "You moan you can say something to Roger for me!" Jackie gaspcrt. Mac nodded. "Only n word or two, of course." Only a word or two—what could they be? Jackie's hand, instinctively, sought and covered the pin thai Roger had placed over her heart. "Could you lell him I'm weaving his pin—for luck? Or if lhat's too long, just say J;ickic sends luck . . ." '• 9 f FAC stopped her, holding up his ~' hand again. He swung round lo dial once more, fingered il. "JBHLP calling DRK . . ." there it was again! Once more Roger gave his altitude and estimated position. Mac replied, giving Ihc answering signal and report; then—with a jerk of his head;toward .Tacidc —he ended by lac-king on'quickly, before the call letters, : "Jackie sends luck—and love . . .IJRK .. DRK ..." "Just luck did not seem enough," he said, turning io liar, with his wide grin.- -"That utigl 1 lo make any fellow break all rei oids, coming from Hie girl who' r engaged lo him." Jackie merely smiled in repl She did not care if he had tackcj on "with love." All she cared no,' was for Roger's flight to be a -_ cess. H might have been 10, ',' minutes — or a lifelime — befo'.jj once again (he eageriy-awaiu'' call-lellers came in. "JBHLP . . . JBHLP call in 1 DRK, calling DRK . . ."
