16 mE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS FRIDAY, DECEMBER 6, 1963 Move Over Darling" Is Slick New Comedy Uy BOB THOMAS A I' Movic-TcJevlslon Writer HOLLYWOOD (AP) — The new movies— "Move Over, Darling" is one of the best of the current outpouring of slick comedies, proving perhaps that practice makes perfect. This is Hollywood's third go at the fanciful yarn of a wife who returns from five years on a desert island to discover that her husband has just taken himself a bride. The other versions were "My Favorite Wife" — 1940 - with Irene Dune, Cary Grant and Gail Patrick as the troubled triangle, and "Something's Got to WITH Millers' Auto INSURANCE 25,000 LIABILITY 20,000 UNINSURED MOTORIST 1,000 MEDICAL 1,000 DEATH BENEFIT $1AOO 19 6 Mo. •No Male Driver Under 25— Pleasure Use Class 11 No Accident Last Three i Years | Give" with Marilyn Monroe, Dean Martin and Cyd Charisse. Only a few weeks' work was filmed before Miss Monroe was fired for tardiness. "Move Over, Darling," with Doris Day, James Garner and Polly Bergen, is another in the line of Doris Day comedies, lovingly coproduced by husband Martin Melcher, and played with such verve that you overlook the essential unreality. Miss Day can bring to each film a professional freshness that conquers fcplings of disbelief. James Garner is ideally suited for this kind of sophisticated farce. His touch is sure. He has the physical aspects for romantic appear and a voice and delivery that can shade a line for the utmost comedic effect. In other words, Garner is destined for a long and moneyed career. He may even become as rich as Cary Grant. The plot is the same as the hilarious 1940 version, with a few modern touches such as a trip through a car wash with the convertible top down. The supporting cast is handpicked for maximum support of the stars. There is Thelma Ritter, who seems indispensible for such outings, plus Fred Clark, Don Knotts, Elliot Reid and rhuck Connors as Doris' island playmate. Edgar Buchanan presides over two of the funniest courtroom scenes in years. K GIVE YOUR CHILD W K A LASTING GIFT S, 1). FOR CHRISTMAS ?' 1 «7 l'»3ive the world book oncyclopediavi $»nd ehildcraff.

By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP) — Among life's little ordeals to men are those portable moving vans women carry today and call handbags. You know what I'm talking about, don't you I mean those huge handbags that look like two fat alligators sewn together lengthways. I mean those huge handbags that take up half the sidewalk as a woman strolls along and which, if they hit a man's kneecap, will snap it like a matchstick. I mean those huge handbags in which the modem woman packs more belongings than the average pioneer mother brought along in a covered wagon to settle the Old West. It's a funny thing about women. When they dress up fancy to go out in the evening, they tote along in their paws sequin- covered bags tiny enough to have been made from the hide of a stunted mouse. Everything else they stuff into the pockets ot their male escort —until he looks from behind like a pair of ambulant saddle bags. Royal Portable Typewriters CHRISTMAS PRICE $49.95 IIUTSON MACHINE SERVICE 2231 Casey Ave. Ph. 242-2797 But by day they limp around town hy themselves, getting more bent over by these vast handbags into which they seem to have thrust everything except what they need most—a sofa to lie down and rest on. "I need it to carry the things I simply have to have with me," a wife usually whinnies. But if you try to peek inside, she'll snap it shut—at the peril of snipping off your nose. Actually there isn't much mystery about the contents. They are a cross between a hope chest, - drugstore counter, and a despair kit. The are a kind of Pandora's junk box. The hold mints, chewing gum, unpaid bills, vitamin pills and aspirn tablets, matchbooks, a 712-page romantic novel, lip- act, unanswered letters, proto- graphs of loved ones, pieces of wadded facial tissue. They hold car keys, house keys, safe deposit box keys. They also hold one thing at the very bottom of this jangle of debris. That's a small billfold or change purse containing their ready cash. nd that's where the trouble comes in. It usually takes a woman up to 10 minutes of frantic fumbling to find this purse and pay a restaurant bill. She's holding up the march of progress. These big handbags must be costing the nation at least 10 million manhours of lost work a month. iLniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiin NOTICE § If you care enough to give a professionally wrapped § § gift, buy your "tie-tie" gift wrapping materials and re* | e ceive free instructions on gift wrapping at — i 1 D.

The Doctor Strict Diabetes Control Delays Other Ailments By WAYNE BRANDSTADT, DO Newspaper Enterprise Assn. Q — I am a diabetic and I take tolbutamide. Would diabetes cause me to have trouble concentrating or expressing myself? A — The symptoms you complain of are characteristic of the hardening of the arteries of the brain that accompanies advancing age. Diabetes, however, may be an indirect cause as it favors the early development of arteriosclerosis throughout the body. This is one more reason for keeping your diabetes under control at all times. Q — If I keep my diabetes controlled, will I develop cataracts? A — Both cataracts and retinal disease may be caused hy diabetes. Keeping the disease under control helps to prevent these and other complications. Q — I have been a diabetic for 12 years When I go out and my date wants to take me some place to eat afterward, should I tell him I am a diabetic or should I just tell him I'm not hungry? A — How you respond to an invitation to have a snack would depend on how serious you are about your escort. If he means nothing to you, make an excuse and get home early. If you think there is a possibility of marriage, be frank about your condition. Your friend may lose interest but, if so, the less deeply involved you get with him and the sooner you are available to date someone else the bettei'. Lots of diabetics get married. When a woman with diabetes becomes pregnant her diabetes must be watched closely, because during pregnancy her need for drugs to control the diabetes may increase. There is no reason why, with good care, she should not produce a healthy baby. There is of course, the possibility that the baby will inherit a tendency to develop daibetes Q — My doctor says I have low renal threshold for sugar. Does this mean that I will become a diabetic? A — You are mildly diabetic. You probably can control this with diet alone but you should have a frequent check-up of your urine and your blood for sugar. Q — Can a diabetic safely take any alcoholic beverages? I have been told there is no sugar in Rhine wine. A — Before the discovery of Insulin, alcohol was used by many diabetics as a quick source of energy in place of the sugar they could not utilize. Alcohol was used in those days to treat diabetic acidosis. We now have better means of treatment. It is true that Rhine wine, dry claret, hock, Moselle, sauterne, dry vermouth and other dry wines contain little or no sugar Please send your questions and comments to Dr. Wayne G. Brandstadt, HI. D., in euro of this paper. While Dr. Brandstadt cannot answer individual letters, he will answer letters of general Interest in future columns.
