I ask the whole wide, cock-eyed world—is there a single person who really likes this sort of thing? Are scenes of domestic violence soothing to jaded nerves, or are they even entertainment?

Why then, in heaven's name, do producers grind these pictures out to us as "side-splitting farces" their musicals, take ua several city-blocks away from tho girls has always been a mystery to me.

Surely these democrats a Americans do not pretend to maintain'tha members of congress are bound to grant what ever a president, even of their own party happens to want. If that were so, there would be no need of a congress; the president would be dictator nnd rule by decree, as Stalin, Mus solini, and Hitler do. The court-packing issue was not a mere Party question. It was fundamental and ought not to have been regarded as a test of party loyalty. Division of opinion throughout the country w«« not based on party lines. In general democrats were more active in opno- sition than republicans.

Th-3 world is being compressed hy radio and transportation to « point where every nation Is on the doorstep of every other nation. It's going to take a major war or oataatronhe of some nature to hring th ^quarreling nations to a realization that they must learn to live with each other. The situation Is much^ke it was In every country toward the close of the feudal era. Then ev ery small kingdom and duchey had to eventually be brought into the larger unit of a nation Improved transportation and eommuSlon caused that change. Now the no x" pi^apssrJs Brsjrass TanS strives to keep its control ovSr h ^ n ^ t( * of ground U Im getting all fed up with the whole kit and kaboodle of this ilk of pictures. Which brings me to the latest example—Exhibit A Everybody Sing—a likely little musical featuring Judy Garland, Allen Jones, and a good cast, not to forget Billie Burke, the real offender in hell-raising antics. "Everybody Sing," however, besides embodying the first of my pet peeves, contains sadly enough also the second — the nefarious nabit among movie producers of giving us our chorus numbers through the eyes of a long range telescopic camera lens. Now this form of camera may be very effective in war scenes, whore the operator wishes to aave his own hide by getting as far as possible from shells and bullets/ and still obtain a picture, but I can see no excuse for such shots when photographing a musical comedy score.
