Aug. 0—CUP) — New rules fur seasonal industries have been adopted by the Maine unemployment compensation commission. Vivo employes of any such industry now may seek an investigation of the industry's records. And Lhc commission may investigate such an invustigatitin on its own initiative. The new rules seek to expand the rghts and henullls of workers in seasonal industries. Considerable improvement has been made in the setup of the locker and lounge room at the Hop Brook club by u rearrangement of floor space. • Manager Hanson With Elmer Schmitz and ".Dick" Sweet have re-^ bo i vamped the cntii-e basement setup duties ] by shifting the lockers to the side walls, thereby permitting the light- "ing system to function as.originally designed. The entire rearrangement is a pleasant surprise over l he former setup. Jt ends a serious space shortage which had been prevalent and which would be further aggravated at the clambake listed for August 1'Jlh. Jn line with the cooperative drive to get all .possible .improvements made at the club, members are being solicited for ideas as to. improvements both to the club house, grounds, and the course itself.-. 16-Year-Qld Gives Final Polish .

GREAT AMERICAN PICTURE SHOWING NOW AT LOEW'S Once again 20th Century Fox has delved into rich lore of a great American tradition nnd has come up with what is at once u great, heart warming experience .as well as triumph of thrilling exciting entertainment. Gloriously ill mod in Technicolor, "Home In Indiana" which opened yesterday at the Loew Poli theater, is an utterly welcome sequel to 20lh's two memorable excursions into the romance and drama of horse racing, "Kentucky" and "Maryland." both of which this new <l!m surpasses in breathtaking beauty, dramatic impact and stirring action. Fc.iiur- ing Walter Brcnnan, Ler. McCalli.s- ter, Jeanne Grain, Charlotte Greenwood, June Haver and an ouuaand- inp supporting cast, the picture is based on the celebrated Saturday Evening Post serial. "The Phantom Filly," by George Agnew Chamberlain. "Home In Indiana" tells its beautiful story of spirited youth, lovely women, fast horses and proud men against brilliantly colorful background of county fairs and the great "apple pie" country in the most dazzling beautiful Technicolor this reviewer has-ever seen, Walter Brcnnan gives what is easily .his most outstanding character portrayal to date. His role— that of ."Thunder" Bolt, the proud horse trainer whose shattered dreams' arc revived by a young and impetuous boy and a "secret" Filly is -tailor-made to the three time Academy Award winner who plays it with deep understanding and wa'rmth. The co-hit on this hit program is- Charlie Clmn in "The Chinese Cat" with Sidney Tolor. BELOW NORMAL (This is a thrilling episode from the sports pages of the past, compiled by l^oren L. Watson, Jr., United Press Radio Sports editor.) Elderly Mr, Newsom went up and down the M.iin street of Hartsville, South Carolina, telling his friends and neighbors goodbye. He wasn't D'ust saying "so long" —it.was goodbye. Now the folks in South Carolina thought that was mighty funny because the elderly man merely was fe-oiny to Cincinnati to watch his son, Buck Newsom, pitch against the PvCds in the world scries. • They thought maybe Mr. Newsom had decided to move to Detroit now that Buck had become a star pitcher for the Tigers. What they didn't know was ih.-u Newsom had a premonition that he wouldn't be coming back 10 Harts- villc for a long time—maybe never. The old fellow went from store to store and chatted a few minutes with his cronies. Jn the barber shop the fcTlows all said that the Tigers should win the series • in four straight, games. It was in a festive mood that Mr. Newsom Jlnally boarded the train that took him on that long ride to Oh'io. He was a pretty tired old fellow when the train pulled in the next morning, but lie .was mighty proud when big .Buck met him at the train. \ The scries is .reserved for champions. Buck was determined to show his father that he had "-.he ituff of which champions are made. The Tigers got him,off to a nice it.ict by scoring "five-runs in the second inning and that's all Big Buck needed to coast, to an .easy victory. . That was almost loo much for Mr. Newsom as he sat in his box scat drinking in the glory of his son's triumph. The aged South Carolinian swelled up like Fanner Brown's pet turkey as he turned to the man in scat and said: "That's my boy out there—my boy Buck." When shortstop Billy Myers made the last Cincinnati out and the game was over Buck beat it right over to that box behind first base. He gave his dad a great big- hug. "Let's go have a great big stcuk. Pop. I've been workin' hard out there and I'm hungry. Vuu must be, loo, after that long ride last night." But Mr. Newsom said ho reckoned he'd just mosey along back | to the .hotel. He was tired and !3g- urcd he bettor get some rest. He knew thai he shouldn't have disobeyed bis doctor's orders made the long trip. But then,,,. h;id seen Buck win a world scri ,,] .Laic lhat night Buck was lo his father's hotel room by house doctor. The old fellow w u pretty sick. He had suffered i hoai'i attack. Buck wanted to st,'iy with hii father. But his pop wouldn't hcar.o! it. He sent the big :ithlctc bed to gel «ome rest. In the wee hours of the mom- jn^ Mr. Newsom's tired old hem quit working and he died. But if any man could be said.ID have died happy—It was Pop K;^. som. He had come nil the way Ui Ohio and had seen ins son Buck beat ihc Cincinnati Jxcds. Jack In Close Win Over Monty New York, 'Aug.
