They selected these 10 nieu as the best directors of 19431944 for the pictures named here: Henry King, for "The Song of Ber- uadette"; *L.eo McCarey for "Going My Way"; Sam Wood, for "For Whom the Bell Tolls"; Mervyn Le- Hoy, "Madame Curie"; Alfred Hitchcock, "Lifeboat"; Preston Sturgess, "The Miracle of Morgan's Creek"; Clarence Brown for "The White Cliffs of Dover"; George Cukor for "Gaslight"; Victor Fleming for "A Guy Named Joe," and Herman Schumlin, "Watch on the Rhine." 'An analysis of this choice would indicate that the trend in popularity in films is toward the idealistic and religious themes. Three of them are definnitely re- liffious and idealistic in theme, "The Sons of Bernadette," "Going My Way 11 and "A Guy Named Joe." Three definitely oxtoll love of liberty and the price that ideal* Jam must pay, "For Whom the Bell Tolls/ 1 -'White Cliffs of Dover" and "Watch on the Rhine/' "Madame Curie' 1 defines and emphasized the ideal of service and dedication to science- Two of the others are studies in human psychology, "JJfehoat" and "Gaslight/' The third. "The .Miracle of Morgan's Creek/ 1 has not been seen by this reviewer and cannot be classified. However, it IH possible that good story material of idealistic theme can boomerang to the credit of a motion picture director. Most of these directors have scored before with films as the Mrs. Haworth Is W. C. T. U. Leader Continued From Pace Nine Mrs. Addic Reneau, Taft, exhibits and fairs; Mrs. Kmily McCutcheon, Htorntuve; Dr. Elinor Ooleman, radio; Mrs. Klixabeth Duvall, Taft, publicity; Mrs. Wildman, religious education; Mrs. Sarah Weisl, Taft, scientific temperance instruction; Mrs. Dennis, soldiers and sailors; Mrs. Xettie Portman, W. C. T. U. home for women; Mrs. Schultz, parliamentary usage. Resolutions Passed Five resolutions were passed at the convention with the first one being a call upon all Christians to observe Y-Day with prayer and thanksgiving and asking that all establishments selling alcoholic beverages, including beer, be closed for 48 hours following the victory proclamation. The second asks that certain areas be cleaned up before the army and navy finds it necessary to take them over. A resolution of appreciation was passed thanking Mrs. I-I. P. Anderson and other pioneer workers in the organization for the fine foundation work done by them. A resolution of thanks was passed for the retiring president, Mrs. Sen u Hz and Mr. Schultz. A resolution of thanks was passed to the Reverend J. L*. Miller, pastor of the First Christian Church and for the church board of trustees for the use of the church and its facilities. Following te luncheon the Reverend Sam Kleinsasser, assistant pastor of First Baptist Church sang, "Great Js Thy Faithfulness." with Mrs. B. Atxvell accompanying at the piano. In addressing the luncheon gathering, Mrs. Thompson, guest speaker, using as her subject, "What of the Morrow," Htated that 000 years before Christ. Zenophen defined temperance as "moderation in all things good, and total abstinence from all things harmful." She pointed out that Webster's dictionary still carries that definition. She also pointed out that 15 minutes after alcohol is taken into the system, according to science, it is in the brain, never being digested but passing straight through to the brain. During the afternoon session after the election of officers Lhe conducted a clinic on organizational work and other features of the organization. This was followed by a question and answer period. Other speakers at the convention were Mrs. H. P. Anderson of Porterville, past county president; Mrs. Schultz, retiring president, who took for the theme of her annual address, "Go Ye Into All the World." Reports of department head and union presidents showed special advances in educational work, and work among the juveniles and young people. There Is a gain in membership throughout the county, it was reported. Artie Shaw's Wife Wins Divorce Decree "LOS AXGELES. Sept. 28. Band Leader Artie Shaw was divorced today by Elizabeth Kern Shaw, daughter of Composer Jerome Kern, on her testimony that they separated in the middle of the night last July 10 after he told her, "we just don't make sense together any more." Their marriage in Yuma, Ariz., In 4^ was Shaw's fourth. Previously he had been married to Actress Luna "Turner, who divorced him in 1940. UNDKRS 1 "best directors." It may work two ways, for tho best directors probably select, their own material to direct. They are probably given more latitude than the directors of routine B pictures. They work in closer collaboration with the seen* arlo writers and producers and have in general a pick of actors and actresses. Casting is done more carefully. More money ig spent on production. The best directors have many advantages to begin with and they are professional enough to take full advantage of their opportunities. It is the director who takes poor material and a poor cast and whips together an even passable performance that so often goes unhonored and unsung. The critics' poll named as picture runnersup and directors the following: Cecil do Mille for "The Story of Doctor Wnssell"; Clarence Brown for "The Human Comedy"; Lloyd Bacon for "The Sullivans"; Mitchell Leison, for "Lady in the Dark"; Lewis Milestone, "The Purple Heart"; "Wesley Ruggles. "See Here, Private Hargrove"; Michael Curtiz for "Casablanea"; Irving Kapper, for "The Adventures of Mark Twain"; Del mar Daves, "Destination Tokyo"; Fred WIN cox, "Lassie Come Home"; Ernest Lubilch, "Heaven Can Wait"; Michael Curtiz, "This Is the Army"; Mark Sandrich, "So Proudly We Hail"; Billy Wilder, "Double Indemnity"; John Stahl, "Holy Matrimony"; Hubert Stevenson, "Jane Kyre";* Lewis Allen, "The Uninvited"; Roy Rowland, "Lost Angel"; George Stevens, "Tho More the Merrier." and Mervyn LeRoy, "Random Harvest."

F NEW YORK, Sept. 28. <UR>— Selling in tobacco company shares countered an otherwise firm trend in the stock market today. Weakness In tobaccos followed yesterday's sharp decline in issues of American Tobacco Company. which dropped on disclosure of company plaiis for a $100,000,000 debenture flotation to obtain funds for purchase of tobacco inventories. Losses ranged to more than three points in the American Tobacco common with the B stock off 3. Liggett and Myers B dropped 1U points. Universal Leaf Tobacco, a strong: spot yesterday, eased a small fraction. Douglas Aircraft, which yesterday signed a new $10,000,000 contract for 15 super-transports to be delivered to Pennsylvania Central Airlines, had a gain of nearly a point and Grumman had a similar rise to a new 1944 high.
