Never has Milland been so superbly harried as he is in his portrayal of terrified George Stroud, editor of a detective story magazine, a publication in a huge magazine empire ruled by Earl Janoth (Charles Laughton.) # * * Following their hilarious portrayals of Ma and Pa Kettle in "The Egg and I," it was inevitable that Marjorie Main and Percy Kilbride would be teamed again. It's happened in the slaphappy comedy of rustic excitement in the good old days, "Feudin 1 , Fussin', and A- Fightin,'" showing currently at the Palace theater.

John N. Gage, command- ng officer of the Chicago quartermaster depot, stated that no in- ormation as to delivery dates will be given out earlier than 7 days prior to the actual delivery. Automatically at this time a telegram will be sent to the. consignee—in most cases the funeral director designated by the next of kin to receive the remains—giving the hour and the day of arrival. The qualified next of kin of the 265,000 identified American deceased now resting in temporary cemeteries scattered throughout the world have already been asked to make their decision as to final interment. So far, GO per cent have ndicated their desire to have their war dead brought back. Thus over 3,000 of Iowa fallen dead will be, returned though Chicago the next 18 months. Col. Gage pointed out that although the government provides the casket, transportation from overseas, a commemoration flag, a headstone, if desired, reinburse- ment of up to $75 toward burial expenses, and a military escort, that the decisions as to the nature and extent of funeral services rest solely with the next of kin.
