Tuesday, March 14,1153 Farewell And Surprise Beach Party Honors Retiring Chief John Volkmann A surprise party honored John Volkmann, CKRELE, OinC-lab tltory, on Sunday, beginning at high noon and lasting until sun down, at the Naval Station Beach. The area was all set up for the party with quantities of cold drinks available the moment the crowd at about 70, counting the children as well as parents and guests, arrived. Introductions were made over a loud speaker and dance and song records were played to add to the fun. The invitations were clever little cards with a puppy wearing a pa per cap labeled "Farewell,” since Volkmann is retiring from Navy service. Chief Volkmann, in charge of the Fleet Sonar School, is one of the best liked men in his branch of the Navy. Special printed napkins were made in hlf honor and guests were allowed to keep some as sou emirs of a wonderful time even though the occasion meant goodbye to Volkmann. While “Auld Lang Syne" was played aa background music, the bosn’s pipe was sounded and the crew summoned to quarters. Mr. Kaczuwka made the presentation of a special "citation" and a pic ture of the men with whom Volk mann worked. Aa tha citation read, the men were happy to have*‘work ed with" rather than "for" their respected chief. After the tokens of appreciation were presented to Coikmann, ha responded with a brief sincere speech of thank you. AH hands then sang "For He’s A Jolly Good Fal low,’* and gave a united cheer. Grilled steaks, baked beans with molasses, tasty potato salad, beer and soft drinks ware served buffet style. After ft suitable rest period, some-of the merry makers want swimming, others took sunbaths, some played volley-bell and .others joined in charades. It was one of the most delightful informal par ties of the year. Even the small fry had ft good time. Late in the after noon, fried chicken was served sizzling from the grill end as the ■un neared the horizon, the fami lies began the homeward trek. The list of enthusiastic guesta present besides Volkmann and his wifa and son included Cdr. and’ Mrs. G. J. Whelan, and son, Mr. end Mrs, H. E. Moretti, Mr. and Mrs. Verhoven and son,Mr. ami Mrs. E.

The entire MGM stable ef atom is trotted out for this drama with Kirk Douglas heading the list ftftd the imposing array running through Lana Turner (she gets the top billing in ads, but be win in a walk) followed by Walter Piegeon, Dick Powell, Barry Sul livan, Gilbert Roland, ft al. Then are more in smaller roles. Even Vanessa Brown, who makea a wonderful clotheshorsft, is sneak ed in as a troublesome woman. And yet, somewhere along tha line, a connection is missed. It will be on the list of the 10 best films for next year, but it won’t make the first three, possibly be cause it is topheavy, tries too bard and has aa unjustified end ing. The story Is about a film genius back in the lata ’lo’s who comes up the hard way and steps on toes, hearts and earners te getting to the summit. 12m pic ture opens with” a conference te the studio of e movie tycoon, played with nice shading by Wal ter Pidgeon. A movie queen, turn ed neatly by Lana Turner; a writer, done with admirable re straint by Dick Powell, end a thwarted director portrayed te fair-to-middlin’ style by Barry Sul livan, are gathered in the execu tive’s office. They refuse to make even one more picture for Dou glas, the producer who is known for his hard driving methods and ruthless character. Pidgeon pleads with them and as he does so, citfa careers through the pest K years. In flashbacks, each one’s story te unfolded. Moat strenuous te the Turner background. A dipsomaniac who has enshrined a dead actor aa idol, she is rehabilitated by the genius of Shields, played by Douglass. His method te to make her fall in love with him. Of course, he established the emo tional overtures just to make h#r a great actress. Then, at the mo ment of her triumph, she discovers his affair with an "eitra" terl, who has known aU along and baa said, "Love. . .that’s for the birds." In the case of the writer, with Powell as the professor who te driven to success, Shields gets him to work by taking his away from his interfering wife. Ha also instructs, Gaucho, a Latin roman tic ace, played te tot hilt and with amusing cariestura by old timer Gilbert Roland, te keep the wife occupied so that her husband can turn out dramas. A plana ac cident kills her and tea escort. Barry Sullivan is cast as the director whose play was promot ed by Shields, but who is betray ed when the producer selects a big-name men to elt in tee covet ed driver’s seat. Erie Von Stro heim in this bit part te scene stealer de luxe. Loo G. Carroll it another one of the old experts in a minor role. And so in the final soeqo tee embittered trio refuaa to listen te Shields plea although te mast viewer’* opinion, they are ft lot of ungrateful pawns who couldn’t have gone anywhere or done any thing without the Simon Legree technique administered by the producer.
