Lot's time out imi week to give s thought to the guy who
eases our aches and pains—the family doctor.
The family doc has throe kinds of major headaches to agitate his
ulcer*. The first is the better-late-than-never -character who doesn't
appear in the waiting room until he feels the Grim
Reaper breathing doyn his neck. Hu arches have
■ fallen, hU kidney ha* floated into the vicinity of hi*
upper thingamabob, hU heart does a double flip in
to hU tummy every second beat. He'a got one foot
in the grave and the other slipping off the edge.
After twenty years of neglecting hU anatomy, he
expect* the doc to patch up the old crate with one
prescription. Of course, he helps things slung by
systematically forgetting to take his medicine or
throwing the bottle away Just as soon sa the pain
in hU piazza leveU off a bit. One day, he falls to
pieces in the Final Junkheap and the wagon comes
NELL RUSSELL *° P 4 ** U P part*. HU widow Inherits hU debt*
and a vocal dislike of the doc.
“That Doctor WhataD U no good,’’ she tell* the girls at the
bridge dub after she's paid her mspecU to the dear departed by
remaining on homebaae for the proper Interval. "That Doctor
Whateia lo no good. He didn’t do a thing for poor Herman."
The truth to Poor Herman wa* to far gone when be decided
to limp to Doe Whatais’ office that only a major miracle and Judg
ment Trumpet could have saved him. But the doc takes the rap.
Pity the doc.
The second headache the family practitioner acquire* along with
hU diploma from medical school U the over-snxious patient
Thu U the old girl (lt’a usually always the female gender) who
haunts the doc’s office on every and any provocation. She brings along
with her a list of symptoms as long as a tax collector's memory. If
she's made up her mind ahe's got an incurable case of sacrotitiiotU,
she’s got -it and no arguments, thank you. If the doc telU her she’s
really only suffering from plain, old-fashioned indigestion, she get*
Insulted and stalks out of the office determined to prowl the medical
front until she finds a physician who will assure her she’s suffering
from sac roll tiloitU. Then she makes the rounds of the community lam
basting the first doc. She says it loud and long.
"That Doctor WhooaU U no good. Here I wa* almost dead on my
feet and he had the nerve to tell me I had indigestion. You go to Doc
tor Flapdoodle. He fixed me out Just fine!”
Then there’s headache Number Three. Tills Is the smart char
acter who knows more than the doc. When the doc tells him to
lay off the hiccough syrup, he goes Into dry dock for three days,
then pulls a bender guaranteed to start Spring floods a good
mouth in advance of the calendar date.
"Whiskey don’t hurt nobody," he says. My grandfather drank
whiskey every day of his life. The old boy lived to be 85.”
It may be well to add parenthetically that although grandpappy
drank the stuff, he didn’t bathe in it.
Yea air, pity the doc. He's the feller who gets the credit for
killing characters who are already half-dead. He takes the beating
(or not being able to cure a malady that wasn't there In the first
place. He gets called on first and paid last. He's the one guy we
can’t do without. •
He and the man with the long, black wagon.
MOVIE REVUES: The new idol of the bobby-soxers is going to be
John Derek, the young acting discovery of “Knock On Any Door.” The
film version of the Willard Motley novel of Juvenile delinquency is a
suspense-packed movie that packs an audience wallop. We won't men
tion what it does to Mr. Motley's original plot.
It may have been the state high school basketball tournament that
was responsible for the overflow of teen-agers in the house the day 1
saw the picture. Some of them were a bit on the giggly side when the
picture first started. They weren’t so giggly by the time It was over.
Derek, as the handsome, doomed Nick Romano should be the new
white-haired boy out Hollywood way. The young ladles in the audience
were practically swooning in the aisles, so smitten were they with
young Mr. Derek.
Robert Davie doee a good Job with hie bit part In the role of
'‘Sunshine.” The scene on the witness stand In which the prosecut
ing attorney questions the boy, brings out for the first time on a
Hollywood screen the problem of discrimination against Negroes
In bars.
"LETTER TO THREE WIVES," on the other hand, is strictly for
entertainment. If you've missed it at a loop theatre, by all means catch'
It at a second run house. The scene in which dishes, people and beer
bottle bounce in rhythm whenever a train passes Linda Darnell’s shack
down by the railroad yards, is worth the price of admission alone.
This film takes a poke at radio soap operas in a slyly pointed
fashion. Ann So them, as the wife of a suburban school teacher,
stretches her husband's Income by pounding out soap operas for the
radio. The sequences in which she entertains her program sponsors at
dinner, is good movie fare.
Somehow I can't help but feel that Larry Doby and the other
Negro players with the Cleveland Indians made an error In strat
egy when they derided to stay at a Negro-operated hotel In Los
Angeles recently Instead of moving Into the Blltmore with the rest
of the team.
Last year Doby was barred from the Blltmore because of Jimcro.
“They didn't want me last year,” Doby was reported as say
ing by the Pittsburgh Courier, “and I don't want them this year.
The other fellows can go there If they wish.”
The other Negro players on the Cleveland team are Satchel Paige,
Art Wilson, Roy Welmaker and Oresto Mlnoso.
This year, according to news reports, the Cleveland team was
going to act against the Jimcro on their brownskin teammates. Gene
Bearden, the southpaw pitcher, a native of Oklahoma, reportedly was
going to head the team revolt.
“If our five Negro players can’t stay at the Blltmore with the
rent of the team, then we'll all walk out. We don’t like this kind
of thing.”
The meeting of the Cleveland squad was called off when the five
Negro players registered at the Negro hotel of their own accord. This
was allegedly Doby’s idea.
Well, If the Cleveland squad had the sportsmanship to act as a
group against the jimcro, the Negro boys should have backed them up.
The sight of the five colored lads staying at the swank Blltmore right
along with the rest of the team would have been a double kayo for
bigotry. It may have opened doors that never would have opened oth
This was missing the boat. It also may make our white
frlfda wonder what -la the-namr of common -sense we Negroes
DO want ? It also gives comfort to those who Insist that Negroes
are much more comfortable “among their own.”
If the Blltmore had instated on the Jimcro of the five Cleveland
players and the entire Cleveland team had walked out of the hotel, it
would have perhaps Inspired other white sports aggregations to stand
up more forthrightly for fair play.
Last week I told you about a "sleeper’’ movie. It’s "The Quiet
One.” Watch for It.
COURAGE OR BOXOFFICE? It looks as If Hollywood is going
to tackle The Problem. You know what Problem. The following films
are listed as on tap:
"Lost Boundaries," the story of the Negro family who "passed"
for years. Quite s bit of dissatisfaction over this one on the part of
beige professionals. The characters of the Negro family who passed
for white are going to be played by white actors. There are certainly
enough Caucaslan-looking Negro actors to carry the roles as far as
physical appearance Is concerned. Hence the loud laments.
‘The Way Out" and "Pinky" are both by Fox pictures.
Also scheduled is "Home of the Brave." The original script was about
a Jewish veteran. The present version will deal with a Negro veteran,
ao they say.

"Incidentally, speaking of left wingers and organisations, espe

filtrate In numbers and take over, but Instead, work one or two per
sons into key spots where they can agitate and confuse, on the basis
of the line as It exists that day. A constant effort Is made to discredit
