Good Morning I Lst night two theaters brought to thir cren a atudy of magnificent futility. The life story of "Citizen Kane." You've h?arr! a lot about this picture and I see by the ads that some rperts think it "the greatest movie evr made." I don't. It s interesting. It's different. In fact, it's bizarre enough to become a museum piece. But its sacrifice of simplicity to eccentricity robs it of distinction and general entertainment "Citizen Kane" presents an almost clinical dissection of a complete egotist. It runs to gargantuan sets end arty photography shadowy and i icy which, however, according to cur Eddie Johnson, is something for tfc books. ... I wouldn't know about tnt. I only know it gives one the creeps and that I kept wishing they'd Jt a little sunshine in. . . . The film has considerable suspense of a who-etinnit nature, tied up with a certain Rosebud." "Citizen Kane" inherited houses end lards and mines and what have vn. But the only item which arrested his Interest was a one horse newspaper taken in on a bad debt. . . . Citizen Kane wants to be a publisher. ... To put out a sheet that will shame the devil, shock the saints, benefit the masses and incidentally of course be widely bought. He becomes the widely known editor of a sensational fleet of newspapers. In a way he has ideals when he starts out. But, because he hasn't the underlying character for the carrying out of ideals; because all Kane really cares about is KANE, all of his projects topple and the man Is finally obliterated-undpr the ruins of the enterprises he has built on shifting sand. Thrre you have the case of " Citizen Kane," a soldier usually enlisted in a bad case. "Head In the clouds, feet in the mire." - The picture will go into such details for you as his unsuccessful campaign for governor, his connection with the Spanish-American war, his storehouses bulging with a motley from all over the world, his domestic life, his amour and his death. Director Welles, who also authored "Citizen Kane" with the help of Herman J. Mankiewicz, proves a zealous and effective performer in the title rftle. He has excellent support from the Mercury players. Ruth Warrick as his first wife and Everett Sloane as his manager I liked the best. Joseph Cotton as Jedediah Iceland, who is shown as. for years, playing Damon to Kane's Tythias, I cared for- the least. The usual foreword disclaiming intentional identification of the picture characters with persons living or dead is conspicuous by its absence. Sem you tomorrow.

If it is to keep on appearing, the sum of $2,500 must be raised immediately. One woman's attempt to help, this putting up of her jewels for sale. a roetry was founded in 1912 by the late Harriet Monroe and for many years was endowed. Now under the editorship of George Dillon it is 75 per cent self-supporting. Last year two donors made up most of the deficit. This year, with the war going on, it Is difficult to get contributions. ,Yet during the last year Miss Monroe paid British poets as well as American poets during the war. She considered it a part of national defense to keep the magazine going. Nearly all we have left of the culture of ancient Greece is what her poets and dramatists left, for verbal monuments last when stone and marble disappear. Our civilization, too, can most surely be handed on thus, It is pointed out. Poetry introduced to America Ezra Pound, T. S.

The check from Poetry for his first published work, the noted war sonnets on England, rame back with the notation, "Deceased." Poetry pays for all contributions it prints, but by accepting a poet's work, opens the doors of other publications to him, thus publication in Poetry means recognition to a poet, as well as money. The little magazine goes each month to Oxford university, to Haiti, the Dillippines, and to cities in France, Italy, Turkey, India, China, South Africa, Australia, and Brazil as well as to its American subscribers. But it may not, next month, unless the lady sells her jewels and other contributors come forward. Or unless the school children of th city start a mile of dimes to keep it going. From tht ClatBtfied.
