"The players gut their names in the paper, and every time they do something worth while, up goes a cheer," one football regular said; "but nobody gives the cheer leaders any credit." If what ; Uiey do didn't help, they wouldn't be out there. So I think, at least once anyway, we should give a cheer for the cheerleaders." ' i The sentiments he expressed arc fairly typical of what most members of the squad feel. The work of the seven cheerer- ettes was outstanding during the past football season, which Is all the more remarkable in view of the team's lack of success.

Not only does the story itself deal with material never before pictured, but the universally fine performances of the entire cast, which includes Burgess Meredith, Betty Field, Lon Chaney, Jr., Roman Bohnen anl Charles Eickford lift it far above the run- of-the-mill Hollywood output. "Of Mice and Men" tells a new kind of story, one which Hollywood itself felt no one would dare to film, so 'startlingly 'different is it from all othov film stories. - Written by one of America's foremost authors, John -Steinbeck, who .also wrote "Grapee of Wrath,' "Of Mice and Men" tells of two men, who are "bindle stiffs," or migratory ranch workers, and the friendship between them. . .
