By the same time President Roosevelt probably will have the pledges of a majority of the 1.094 Democratic delegates for a third term, although only two-thirds of the total will have, been chosen. A Virtual Certainty. While the' chief executive remains silent, the consensus of Washington politicians Is that the war has made his acceptance of renominatlon a virtual certainty, Jt is the general opinion, however, that he will not say "yes" or "no" until the convention actually has asked him to head the ticket again, .Talk has arisen in some quar ters of postponing the Republican ronventlon now set for Phlladel phla June 24 until the war situs. -i tlon la clarified, but opposition was voiced last night by Alt M.

One of the few children of the theater If not the only one to keep right on through the awk ward stage, Jane has just com pleted "The Girl From Avenue A." The studio, basing the film upon the stage play "The Brat" and spending more time than usual upon the script, lists It as definite ly an "A" picture.
