8 F"doy, September 8, 1944 Cfte gafcerriieft CaHfornfan SHARING between the SHEARS By MAE ]<a\vrcnce Kimble, local newspaperman win; mnile good as a scenario writer in Hollywood, h.ns to his credit the newly-made Radlo-Keith-Orpheimi production, "Music in Mnnhattan," with Ann Shirley, Phil Terry and others in the cast. Mr. Kimble, after successfully free lancing for a time, recently signed a contract at tho studio nnd has been assigned to work on a script for Cantlnflas, Mexico's youthful tnpnotch comedian and idol of Latin Americ.'i. The Mexican actor is credited with being a combliifition of Cb.-nlie t'haplin. pnntnminu 1 : Pol* Hope, gags, with a typically Latin American appeal. The Cantiflas film, to be made at U. K. (). Mudio.s will be unique because it will be inadi; in two versions, cine in English with an American cast, and Uie oilier in Spanish with Latin-Ainerk-an actors. Cantilfas began his career in neighborhood tent shows nnd two- reel advertising ."hurts. Hut since then he reached the top ns a Mexican film entertainer. He is billed as his nation's "Ambassador of Laughter." Mr. Kimble has also been work- SAl XI>KKS inK on :i script called T'an-Amerl- ciina with Rnbert llenoliley. Eve Arden, Phil Terry and Audrey Lung is the cast. This picture is now being filmed at the R. K. O. WiiK REGAL PALE so light and mellow Filling glasses£olden yellow That's the way to celebrate Your Wedding Anniversary date.... BW AMIR KpviNu CO Right now the screen needs a good new comedian. Years ago Americans took to their hearts a Frenchman by the name of Maurice Chevalier. He had subtlety, and finesse that was lacking In the American type of comedian. His fans in this country were greatly disappointed to know that he became a .\a/.l collaborationist and his reception here after the war (if he isn't already shot as reported) would lie only full <>f hisses. Then- is room in American motion pictures for the more subtle turn of phrase, and really humorous situations that one seldom meets in the bread burlesque of Benny, Hope, Cantor, Dili-ante, et al. Hope tops the list for the witty turn of phrase. Americans like the "boob" type of comedy and most, of the radio script writers know this and indulge in it ad nauseam. Sometimes they even boob this stylo over the air. Almost everorio is getting a bit tired of the stale type of humor that is basically the same as "who's-the-lady-1-saw- you-with" type of joke. The best humor Is integral in the character itself and Dennis Day proves it. by the number of l.'iughs he garners on the Penny program, whether his lines are funny or not. Day is a good comedian as well as a good singer. Good character aetors sustain Iheinselve.s with sly comedy. Cast master of this art is Barry Fitzgerald.

Karpe's Implement House Kern County Dealer Bakenfield Wasco Delano RECORDS Mailing instructions for pn reels and Christmas cards sent to men in the armed forces overseas, were given yesterday by Postmaster Jerry P. Shields who predicted that this year's soldier Christmas mail is expected to be three times as heavy as last vears. Mailing time starts September 15 and ends October 15. Unless there Is a special request from a serviceman himself, the post office will refuse any Christmas cards or gifts for overseas mailing before September 15. Here are things to remember about overseas Christmas mailing for service people: Cards should be sent In sealed envelopes and prepaid at first class mail rates. Every gift parcel should have written on it the words "Christmas parcel." Parcels must not be move than !> pounds in weight; more than 15 inrhps in length; or more than Sfi inches in length and girth combined. Food, Clothing Hint The war and navy departments point nut that members of the armed lorres are amply provided with fond and clothing. So—why include such matters in parcels meant as Christmas gifts? All articles should be packed in boxes of metal, wood, solid fiberboard, or strong double-faced corrugated fiberboard reinforced with strong gummed-paper tape or tied with strong twine, or both. All fiber-board boxes should be wrapped, when possible, in heavy paper. This will prevent the contents from spilling out if the inner package is crushed or split. Sharp-pointed or sharp-edged in- struments—like knives or razors— must have their points or edges protected. This will prevent them from cutting through their package nnd damaging other, mail or injuring handlers. You cannot mall "intoxicants, inflammable materials, such as matches of any kind and lighter fluids; poisons or compositions which might kill or injure someone or damage other mail. Letters or packages containing money or other articles of value will be refused. You are advised to register or insure Christmas gifts of more than ordinary value addressed to personnel of thp navy, marine corps or coast guard. Merchant Marine Parcels Christmas mail for members of the merchant marine should also be sent between September 15 and October 15. Parcels for merchant mariners cannot be registered or insured and there is no money-order service available for them. Parcels addressed to army personnel overseas should show, in addition to the name and address of the sender, the name, rank, serial number, branch of the service, army post office (APO) number of the person to whom the gift is addressed, and the United States post office through which the parcels are to be routed.
