COURIER NEWS K [LED II To Them > Spring No Excuse For Love I I mm lm mm U 111 _ ...... ^____ WEDNESDAY, APRIL 2, 1941 "Bloody Marian" County, Ky., Scene Of Fierce Striker's Baltic HAUL AN, Ky., April 2 (UP) — Pour men were shot and killed and at least five oth'ers were wounded today when union pickets and nonunion employes engaged in :i pitched battle at the Crummies mine in "bloody Harlan" County. Fighting started when several hundred members of the United Mine Workers (CIO) went to the mine, one of those closed during the work stoppage ordered by the UMW and sought "to enrol nonunion employes who were lounging about -the mine commissary.

H. Kress Building on Main street tonight. .• The boy is James Bailey, son of Mr. and Mrs. Y. A. Bailey, who .is a student of Miss Marguerite Sllaz. The exhibition he has arranged for display will feature eight steps in carving a zinnia. Beginning with an ordinary spool, he carves the desired design and then paints the flower with water colors. According to those who have seen his completed work, his zinnias when placed in a vase with ^willow stems are "quite real looking." Idea for the wooden flower came to him one day at school when he .was "just whittlin' a button". person make more than whim he was sober." "Yc-.s," corroborated a worldly colleague of the same age, "when people get intoxicated, their inhibited thoughts come more clearly to their .semi-conscious mind." The unu.suui, in plot- or technique, alway.s draws the highest praise from the young critics. Daniel Feeley, n, thought that "Knute Rockne" was keen, "because it's not a lot of baloney. Rockw: doesn't go in there and win every time. He even got tackled." Many's the'picture to wilt under blistering scorn because "it's the same old baloney. The hero \vins in tin.' end." NO KB All OF EMOTIONS The Young Reviewers are not afraid of emotion as .such, even if, as Irving Dolinsky, 14, shrewdly observed: "Many adults think it's .sissy to sho'.v your emotions." Emotion i.s okay, but love is something again. Love has a na.sty way of impeding action —even in Spring, a invariably comes in for u merciless verbal pummeJJng. Robert Burgess, 31, summed up "Arizona" with: "It's one of their regular westerns, but it'.s on the top. No dry love scenes." David Kolley, 13, disagreed: "It wasn't really a western. It was about love between the hero and the heroine. "It was different," argued Bob, "because the man does not hold FUNNY BUSINESS Spencer Sworn In As Senate Member WASHINGTON, April 2 (UP)— Lloyd Spencer, a Democrat, took the Loth today as senator' from Arkansas.

A group of less reticent, spade- calling critics would be hard to find. They have few illusions about their work. As 12-year-old Joan Heller bluntly observed after a recent preview of "Meet John Doe": "The movies are not always exactly real. They want a good buildup and a good yrriteup." To get a good buildup from the Young Reviewers demands the highest standards in story, acting, and direction. The Young Reviewers are demons on boners. Thirteen-year-old Alvin Golden, for example, could hardly wait until a recent preview was over to ask: "How come the dog was shot on the left side jumping over the fence, and when lie was on the I ground it was his right .side that i was \vounded?" i -Sometimes this demand for ac- ! curacy lias other than purely al- ' truistic motives.
