Enrollment at Delano High School Shows Gain for Year McCall Home After 30 Months in Pacific TAFT, Sept. 25. — Private First CI.-iss John R. McCall, niiirinc, is In Taft on a 30 day leave with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. R. C.' McCall, of 21!1 iS street, after P.O months service in the southwest Pacific.

He enlisted in the Marine Corps prior to Pearl Harbor. Ready, folks? OK —let's shoot. Camera! Out the door and down the steps .. . Fine! Now everybody smile ... And you kids wave and throw a kiss for Daddy..." Not a bad scene. Bill's wife and kids and Bill's front door, and even Bill's pooch — knowing look on his mutt face. Just as though he knew what's go. ing on. It's fun, making home movies. Exacting work, too—adjusting for this and that—getting everybody in. Bill won't mind if it's not up to MGM standards. He'll laugh when he sees how the midsummer sun makes junior squint—but he'll see too how much Junior's grown. Midsummer. Funny to reflect that Bill won't see this shot for months. For the date of its first showing — its world premiere— is set: Christmas Eve, on the other side of the world! A B-plcture, you say — nothing colossal about it—but to the boys in Arabia it will be the grandest thing that ever hie the screen. Hollywood's glamour girls can take that evening off. There's a story behind all this. On the shores of the Persian Gulf, Standard's affiliate, the Arabian American Oil Company, is getting out petroleum products for Allied planes and tanks and trucks—and a lot of Westerners are over there help, ing. They're living in reasonable comfort, of course, with decent housing and food and all the rest. But they're a long, long way from friends and family. Especially family. So the folks at home have been making this movie, packing it full of faces and things and places they're anxious to see. Soon the precious reel of 16-mm. colored film will be packed and scaled and shipped away—with this notice on the wrapper: "Not to be opened until December 24th." Can't you see—and hear— that gang in Saudi Arabia on Christmas Eve? We bet they raise the roof.
