Strange Love of Martha Ivers", at Rialt Miss Stanwyck Plays Menace in New Drama What sounds like a powerful dish of excUing melodrama ts^due to arrive Sunday at the Rialto Theatre when Hal Wallis' production of Paramount's "The Strange Love of Martha Ivers", starring Barbara Stanwyck, Van Heflin and Lizabeth Scott, opens at that playhouse. The film also introduces the latest in the rapidly growing list of Wallis discoveries, Kirk Douglas, product of the Broadway stage. "The Strange Love of Martha Ivers" tells a sensationally unusual tale, an insight into the diabolic mind of a completely evil woman. As a child, she had beaten her 'wicked old aunt to death, an act which sets the pattern for her "dark future. Her outlook and actions shadowed by the guilty knowledge of murder, she sends an in- innocent man to the chair for the crime, flaunts her infidelity into the face of, and completely dominates, her weakling husband, and twice attempts to kill the man she loves in her own warped way. Heflin Returns To Barbara Stanwyck falls the tense, dramatis role of Martha, the malicious, a role more hateful than the one she played in "Double Indemnity." which landed her among the Academy Award nominees. Recently discharged from the armed forces, Van Heflin, who won a 1941 "Oscar" for his performance in "Johnny Eager," has an equally virlie part as the gambler whom Martha has loved from childhood. Golden-haired, husky-voiced Lizabeth Scott, successfully launched in Wallis' "You Came Along." is said to establish herself firmly in the film constellation with an outstanding characterization as a girl from nowhere, who strings along with Heflin. Kirk Douglas, the newcomer, plays Martha's spineless husband, and his performance has evoked raves from previewcrs.

Included was a generous international flavor, however, as was evident in the $100,000 Santa Anita landicap. Six British hopefuls, Sir Laurence, Sullivan, Middle Abbey, Lolini,.

If that forecast should prove true, a peaceable settlement of the steel case might enable the nation to escape a repetitipn of its 1946 industrial warfare. Working ume lost in strikes this year will reach an all-time high, approximately three times the figure for 1945, the previous record year. At best the outlook is uncertain. But one government labor official, saying he refused to share the pessimism of some of his colleagues, predicted that the forthcoming CIO disputes would be settled 1 with wage increases of 10 to 15 cenls an hour without a recurrence of the 1946 wave of strikes. To cope with new strike threats, the Labor Dep.'irlrnenl's conciliation service has launched two experiments in the past week, seek- avenues to industrial a labor-management conference to develop procedures for preventing strikes in public utility industries. The second was an "assembly" of 24 union and management representalives to work with the conciliation office at Philadelphia in the maintenance of in dustrial peace in the middle Atlantic stales. If Ihose experiments should prove successful, they will be trice in other industries and areas. Neither, however, offered a mechanism for handling the steel case. CIO President Philip Murray heads the steel workers, whose contract expires Feb. 15. There have been signs thai Ihc CIO leadership is anxious to avoid strikes, both to offset the wage losses sustained in 194B strikes because of the fear of drastic and new labor legislation. Employers no longer need lo worry aboul price controls nor can they claim excess profits tax re-] funds next year to offset strike ] losses. On the other hand, reluctant to raise prices further and the promise of labor legislation may stiffen management resistance to wage boosts. The three largest CIO unions '— the steel workers, the United automobile workers and the United Electrical Workers — will meet at Pittsburgh Monday ior a joint slra- egy meeling. The UAW already has asked the Chrysler Corp. tor new wage :iego- iations and has set its sights on lourly raises of 23.5 cents. It, can- lot demand negotiations with General Motors and Ford until March 9 and May 1, respectively. The UEW contracts with General Elec- ric, Westinghouse and General Motors can be reopened earlier under varying contract provisions.

Some held it to be the clinching proof of the So- vicl's amiable co - openitivcnss and ardent desire for peace. Others, not only professional cynics but usually trusting souls who have come to suspect Russian policy, busilly seaichecl Mr. Mololov's speech for what is inelegantly known as the "gimmick." At present, however, one thing is certain. No amount of misgivings can outweigh the hopefulness inspired by the Russian change of heart. This docs not mean an end of clit- ficultics, of course. Russia will not abandon the veto until she can ag- rce to the control and inspection system. There will be disagreement and argument over the framework of that system. But all this is unavoidable. The heartening' thing is that one of the biggest disagreements between Russia, this country and Britain has made great progress toward settlement. The small day to - day differences can be borne Even though Russia insists on hci Security Council veto in all olhei matters, there is more hope foi j peace now than at any time in the UN'S short history. But there arc still some formid nble obstacles to be cleared. On is the creation of a disarmament program and of an inspection system that'can really enforce it. Any inteinational inspection system will require some sacrifice of sovereignty. And the making of that sacrifice will demand an entirely new and courageous sort of diplomatic thinking.

Mr. Armilage also reviewed the chamber's participation in the Third District Stock Show, and the pasture campaign throughout this county. He reported that Hope Chamber of Commerce would end 1946 with a surplus of $450. The membership gave a big hand to the announcement that the secretary - manager had reconsidered his resignation.
