Timely Topics It has been the purpose of producer White to inject into the Rogers series a timeliness and present-day flavor that would give them more substance than in other western tales. As a re sult Roy's pictures have probed such problems as "wet-backing" (the smuggling of Mexican nationals into this country to serve as migratory workers), preservation of fisb in the hatchers of Cali fornia, the general preservation of wild life everywhere, coun terfeiting, preservation of Indian reservations and many other such similar subjects. Roy's current Republic pic ture is typical. The film, "Pals of the Golden West," coming Thursday at the Carolina Theatre; relates Roy's efforts to combat the spread of hoof and mouth disease' from Mexico to the United States; Roy .: serves as a member of the U. S. Border Patrol m pursuing a band of rustlers who are smuggling Mexican cattle into this country.

Dr. Wassell," "Casanova Brown," "Cloak and Dagger," "Unconquered," and. most recently; in "Good Sam." Teresa Wright, who plays Eleanor Twitchell, the Chi cago society girl who marries Gehrig and whose devotion to lrm during his greatest years on the diamond and his subsequent losing fight with paralysis makes their romance so outstanding, was literally a newcomer to the Hollywood scene and screen; Her role in "The Pride of the Yankees" carried the authentic stamp of future stardom which was soon to be rea lized with such outstanding per formances in 'Shadow of a a Doubt," ."Casanova Brown."
