Our local preacher sez thet th’

many of them good.

Charlie Ruggles, Billy Cook, Wil-
liam Collier Sr. and Marjon Martin,
the picture was produced and di-
rected by Wesley Ruggles.
The fine touch of Ruggles, and
his writing collaborator, Claude
Btnyon, is clearly evident in this
picture. This teafn, which has come
through with a long line of hits in-
cluding “Sing You Sinners" and ‘.'I
Met Him in Paris," has taken an
everyday story and translated It inr
to dramatic terms which will be
clearly understood by every au-
The story starts to unfold with
Charlie Ruggles, manager of Fred,
going to his old friend, William
Collier Sr., father of Irene, and ask-
ing him for a stake to help his
young fighter along. Always a suck-
er for an Investment, Collier de-
cides to help him, but Irene Inter-
venes to make certain that her
father Is not being cheated.
When Irene meets Fred she is. im-
pressed with the difference in his
outlook on life as contrasted with
that of the men whom she has
known in society. Fred is restrained,
tells Irene that he'd rather spend
his time with Marion Martin, en-
tertainer in a night club. This only
Serves to spur Irene on—and so
they are married.
.Pursues Fight Career
Fred is determined to pursue his
career as a fighter, and Irene has
to resign herself to long periods of
loneliness. During one of Fred's
barnstorming trips, a son is born
to the couple. Irene is heartbroken
at Fred’s absence, but forgives liim.
The drama progresses to its cen-
tral emotional problem When, ten
years later, the growing son (play-
ed by Billy Cook, hates his father
because he realizes that his mother
is lonely when his father is away.

An Associated Press compilation
released last Friday covered the
first 70 large corporations to report
for the second quarter. Their net
incomes were 6.4 per cent higher
than for the first quarter of 1939
and 34 per cent above the same
.period of 1938. Sixty-nine other
corporations enjoyed net income in-
creases of 65 per cent.
