STRAND THEATER FEATURES "WHITE CLIFFS OF DOVER" M-G-M's "The White Cliffs of Dover," continues Its successful .second weeks showing in Waterbury on the screen of the Strand. It stars Irene Dunm-e, who has in her support Alan Marshal, Roddy MacDowell, Frank Morgan, Van Jollnson, C. Aubrey Smith, Dame May Whitty. Gladys Cooper and a rost of other fine actors and actresses. The title and the cast themselves should Indicate to the audience the true greatness of such a- picture, but in case any reader docs riot get the significance of such a fine title as "The White Cliffs of Dover," or of such a Superb cast, you should by nil means drop everything yteu are doing and make a vi.-it to the Strand. For In "The White Cliffs of Dover" words cannot express the depth and warmth of so vital message in the story- It is poignant, tender and lush with the fruits of a great effort by supreme craftsmen. It is a picture that will long bo remembered as a tribute to every sweetheart, mother and father with a Irvcd one LT the service. a new era in motion plc- Hollywood realism is much harder on an actress than most movie goers suspect. "I've never been "s hangcd-up in a picture in all m life," declared Kay Francis durln, the filming at 20th Century-Fox o "Four Jills In A Jeep" now play ing at Locw Poll theater, The picture broadly parallels th adventures she shared with Carol LandLs, Marthe -Raye and Mitb Mayfalr while entertaining du lighting men in England and Nort Africa.

Alice Faye Betty Grable, Carmen Mirandi and the great George Jcsscl, whc acts as .master of ceremonies, ap pear as guest stars." On the tour, explained Miss Francis, "we wen through an incident only once. Go ing through similar incidents fo the screen means as many as 1! "takes in addition to the rehears als," Take Mitxi, for example, sh ended her jitterbug number on th tour by carrying a soldier oft stage over her shoulder. For a scene- i the picture she had to do it clevci times in one morning then spend the afternoon holding the soldie'i over her shoulder fourteen times for the still photographer. Where as we got one good bump at a time in the jeep we rode overseas, £01 the picture we did a scene seven times and the bump made a mucl deeper impression. All in all, this has been my most strenuous film chore by far. "Four Jills In A Jeep" was directed by William Seitcr and produced by Irving Starr. The screen play was written by Robert Ellis, Helen Logan and Snag Wcris, The-co-hit on this two big feature program is "Roger Touhy Gangster" with Preston Fostei and Victor McLaglen.

CITY BAKERY L 171 Maple Street TEL. 3CT8 New York, July 26—CUP)—Tt looks as though Bill Nicholson of the Chicago Cubs is out to win the home run crown of the ma- jot- leagues this year. The color-blind cloutor of the Chicago Cubs gave Mel Ott of the New York Giants 'ciuite n. lead in t-he early stages o£ the homo- run derby, but in the last two days he has jumped into a tie with the New York manager. Before last Saturday'-^ game Ott was loading the -home run parade with 20 round trippers and Nicholson WH_S second with 1C. But big Bill blasted one Saturday a-M-d four more Sunday while Ott got one Sunday to 'knot the race at 21 apiece. There are two important, factors in* favor of Nicholson's himself hitting at least 40 homers this year. In the first place lie has gotten his 21 in SI,Cub games, and if he keeps up that perc^n-tage he would wind up with 39 9-10 homers for .the season. And in the second place, Bill always bus done his best power hlttir.g during August nr.d'Septem- bc;", L.T.s.t yea,r and the year before he got a-majority of his round trippers itr those two months. ' Bill, explains: "Last year and the ycnr before it took me longer than usual to get thawed out because of the northern training." The Cubs trained i'tv the north again this year and from present indications it looks as though Nicholson has ju,st about "thawed." Bill is so color blind he can't tell a blonde from a bru'irctls, but that doesn't seem to affect his ability to pick out the pitch he likes and drop it in the stands. By hitting four homers in four consecutive official times at bat he equalled a major lc;igue mark ...that included his final homer on Saturday and the three straight on Sunday. • •And when''he slapp'ed one in the second Sunday game Bill set a new-National league mark for the most homers on a single day and equalled the mark hold by three American- leaguers. Last year Bill had 29 homers to lead the Nati'or-al league but was five short of the 3-1 round trippers turned in by Rudy York of the Detroit Tigers. However: Nicholson pounded in ,128 runs to lead both circuits in that important department. In five years in the major leagues; Nicholson has leaver been tossed' out'of a ball game. He explains: "Guess 'it must be ' because I'm always swinging at the close ones —never take a third strike. That way I make the mistakes—not Lhe. umpires," St. Louis Browns Gain Game Over Yanks; Brooks Lose <Uy UltiUxl Tress) Tho Cleveland Indians are tyi the American league race into an- othnr knot.

Everyone knows that when it's five o'clock in any part of the world it's the day before yesterday somewhere else. And with war time to add to the confusion, it's no wonder' that the Indianapolis Indians and Louisville Colonels mnnaged to get away with selling jack the clock for a bal! game recently. The- Indiana curfew law says that, no inning of a ball game can start after 10 minutes before midnight. Cut when the Colonels and the Indians got ready lo start the second game of a night doublehcadcr they saw that there probably wouldn't be enough time lo get in even four and a half innings of the seven inning game. So the managers of the two teams got together and just decided they'd go along with Cc.n- tral Standard Time instead of Central War Time. That set the 1 clock back one full hour, and gave lihem time to squeeze tho contest When that game ended, the club olllcial's watches said that it was half-past twelve. But -Jie watches belonging to the 6,000 fans in the stands all read 1:30 a. m. Hut the fans didn't mind the : difference. They saw two ball games — an hour-long fireworks display—and they saw JDick Callahan pitch and win the second game for the Colonels. Dick is the high school pitching sensation who got a J35.000 bonus for signing with Lhe Boston Hod So.-: chain. Twenty eight boys—all under 3S —will lind the rainbow at the Polo Grounds on August seventh. They'll he baseball players—kids from all over the country—playing in an All-American baseball game. 1 There'll be two teams. One from east of the Mississippi and one from the west. Those boys will be the survivors of a large band who tried out for places with sports editors of 2S large newspapers helping to pick out ;hc cream. Connie Mack—the veteran manager of the Philadelphia Athletics •will pilot the eastern team. And Mel Ott of the New York Giants will run the western squad.
