The production, based tlpon Owen Brlstow's novel which 'tan in The Ladies' Home Journal, IS built upon a suspenseful emotional situation.

" When "Drew determines to so to Canada and join the RCAF, Elizabeth growfe hysterical: The mysterious Kessler takes a hand in the highly-charged domestic atmos- , phere and in a memorable climax i-esolves the problem of the boy's career and the wife's marital complication as well. ' With its prqvocativeness of theme and the eminence of its cast,' "Tomorrow Is Forever" is said to be one of the really outstanding pictures of the year. Not the least Of its attractions is its introduction of a sensational young actor •Richard Long, 17-year-old Hollywood Hieh School lad who plays the part of Drew, and who seems to be headed for a notable screen career* Lucile Watson, as Brent's kindly aunt; Natalie Wood, as Welles' «dooted daughter and Sonny Howe la's' Elizabeth's younger son, have ftther important supporting roles in the David-Lewis production for KKO- Radio release.

Aug. 15 — (UP) — This is Ihe happy hunting ground of Chinese secret agents, gendarmes, strong-arm men, propagandists, agitators and political malcontents. They operate against a back ground of official Brilish silence and grow bolder day by day. The roar of the British lion loday is only a lazy yawn. In Ihis far- flung outpost of empire, home base of the British Pacific flecl, the proslralc lion nol only is being walked on bul is having his face pushed inlo Ihc mud every now and Ihen. Chinese Iroops. who firsl entered the colony by virture of being at tached lo unils moving from the inlerior lo Manchuria via Hong kong, indirectly have been the cause of much of the ill-feeling bj Ihcir ignorance of — or conlcmp for ;— Ihe colony's laws. Although municipal law' forbid it, these troops.carry side arms— and use them. The Brilish Commandos, guard ians of the port together with ar Indian brigade, are hostile to th Chinese and the result is a staggering number of "incidenls" whenever the 'two come within shooting distance of each other. The new territories, the mainland portion of the colony, is a virtual armed camp and shooting incidents are common. In recent weeks there occurred a full-scale machinegun battle, the Big U.S.Ship Significantly in Near East By JOHN M. HI.GHTOWER A.P. Diplomatic Reporter Washington, Aug. 15 —(/PI— The mighty new aircraft carrier Frankin D. Roosevelt is duo at Lisbon omorrow. Dound for a Mediterranean training cruise that coincides vilh developing lension in Ihe Near Last American diplomatic officials reportedly arc taking a serious view Russian demands on Turkey for a direcl parl in Ihe conlrol and defense of the Dardonollcs. While it seems certain that the United Slalcs will back Turkey in rojccl- ing Ihc Russian demand, il is an open question how far this country will go in that respect Thus Ihc' appearance of Ihc aircraft carrier and possibly other American naval unils in the Mcdi- lorranoan a few days aflcr the arrival in Portugal appears likely to bo widely interpreted as an American show of force even though all official slalemcnls insisl that the only purpose is a Iraining cruis.2. Naval plans call for the big carrier lo be joined at Lisbon by tho cruisers Houston and Little Rock and possibly one or more destroyers, all from Adm. Henry K. Hewitt's naval forces in northern European waters. In fact, the two cruisers and four destroyers comprise Hewitl's lolal force there at the moment. Already in the Mediterranean under Vice Adm. Bernhard H. Bieri are the cruisers Fargo and Huntington and Iwo deslroycrs. Musical Will Open Here for 3-Day Play Hailed as the one in a lifetime, love-time musical romance, "Do You Love Me," 20th Century Fox's brilliant Technicolor hit starring Dick Haymes, ' Maureen O'Hara and Harry James opens Sunday at the New Theater. The song -and-thrill-packed story of a girl who said "Yes" once too often presents Maureen O'Hara as a shy, bespectacled and conservative music school dean who comes to town in search of a guesl con- duclor bul becomes "titivated" Instead. One Ihing leads lo another when Harry James falls in love with her and Dick Haynies takes the words—and music—right out of his trumpet. With the appearance of Roeinald Gardiner as an ingenious Cupid and Richard Gaincs as her staid but stubborn fiance, the fast-moving story develops into the screen's wackiest four-sided Irian- glc. Four new song hits including "I Didn't Mean A Word I Said," "Do You Love Me", "Moonlight Propaganda" and 'As If I Didn't Have Enough On My Mind" are introduced by Dick Haymes and Harry James and his Music Makers. The film was directed by Gregory Ratoff and produced by George Jessel.

These were just the more spectacular instances. The prestige of empire is taking some of its beating from those same Chinese who before the war were laborers, domestic servants or clerks. Now they are riding the crest of their ultra-nationalism. But the startling fact is not the awakened scene of Chinese nationalism. It is rather what the British are doing about it, which is'nothing. There is a continuing and ever- increasing undercurrent of unrest which now and then blows the top off to reveal the ugly, seething mass underneath, then, like a .volcano, it subsides.
