Featured stars in this production are Doris Day and Peter Graves. While Wyoming is still a struggling territory, woman's growing independence is meeting with strong opposition. Widowed Doris Day is acquitted of the death of her drunken, abusive husband,but a reluctant judge awards her little son to her father-in-law's care until she can provide for him. When she realizes that the only job available to her is that of a waitress in a drover's saloon, she turns to raising sheep on her otherwise valueless land. She becomes involved in a range war, women's rights, a protest march and a trip to jail. An indignant rancher masses cattlemen against her, b u t embattled suffragettes espouse her cause and battle for her valiantly. This film is recommended for adults mature young peop- ple and young people. "THE FAMILY WAY," Camp Bowie, Sunday through Tuesday. A warm human comedy drama, set in an English industrial town, begins with the marriage of Hayley Mills and Hywel Bennett, a youthful working class couple. The crude carousing of the weddjng celebration and the total lack of privacy later at the groom's home where the newlyweds must live temporarily, contribute to the embar- assment that prevents (he self-conscious young husband from consumating their marriage.
