Hays noted a possibly regrettable tendency of the movies toward "escapism.” This led to Bitty Hay. Now was™ sue! A Matter of cumbing to the Fact Eudemonist ver bal enchant __ ments of the Hollywood intelligentsia. That all blew over, but here is Mr. Hays today frankly proclaiming himself a eudemonist. Our somewhat con servative dictionary is a bit vague about it, but, in his rough outlines, a eudemonist seems to be one who believes in fairies. In his annual report as president of the Motion Picture Producers & Distributors of America, Mr. Hays cites with satisfaction the record box-office success of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” and is hap py that “there are still a number of eudemonists left in the world.” There is no disparaging or invidious reference to non-eudemonists, but, since Mr. Hays also reports with gratification that there are no “isms” and no “social significance” in “Snow White,” it is perhaps a fair inference that such black witch, ery is the dramatic antithesis. Practicing law in Sullivan, Ind., the homespun, sagacious Mr. Hays was no rising young eudemonist. That came later. He was, however, a rising young Republican politician and a Presbyterian elder, one of the deftest inner-circle technicians of the Indiana party tourna ments, where professional stand ards and scoring are high. That led him inevitably to what statesmen of his earlier day used to call “political prefer ment,” and, as postmaster gen eral in President Harding’s cabinet, he exercised political power of wide range and pene tration. For seventeen years now, he has headed the moving picture industry. A round of eight “silents,” when he left his cab inet post, and now about 28 ‘Czar* la Out, Prefera ‘ Bill * Aa Hia Handle companies putting out highly vo ciferous films—no wonder he be lieves in fairies. He doesn’t like to be called “czar,” preferring just plain “Bill,” if there is any call for an informal salutation. Hearing him wind up in an address, or even in casual talk, one could understand how he could be a eudemonist, as he invokes the founding fathers or the palladium of our liberties, against this or that, but he usually coppers such oratorical bets with a remark like this: “And, after all, it probably wouldn’t work.” Thus he is revealed as what might be called • pragmatic eudemonist. In his county seat town, he inherited his father's land-law business. A fragile man, with a slight limp and outstanding ears, he has the mannerisms of the country lawyer, and he wins over opposition, as he used to win juries, with a winsome and disarming smile. He is at times a euphcmist, as well as a eu demonist—insisting. for in stance, that censorship is mere ly “self-regulation.” Several years ago, he was worrying be cause the movies were going “masochist.” Sullivan, Indiana, is still home base for Mr. Hays and he is the town’s favorite son, in spite of his philological flare-up. IT WOULD be fine if we had t> * cash register which would ring up a true prophecy when it was turned in. About a year and a half ago, George Messersmith, assistant secre tary of state, former consul- Meaaeramith Called Hitler 1 a Moves Early general at Berlin, called Adolf Hit ler's next moves as clearly and ac curately as a spieler for an old-fash ioned barn dance. He turned in to the state department a precise state ment of what der fuehrer had on his mind, now fully validated and certified. Naturally, it got little at tention because it was obviously in credible. The Nazis can’t say it was a prejudiced opinion. When Hitler was emerging, Mr. Messersmith thought “evolution would follow revolution,” and everything would work out nicely. He changed his mind. When Dr. Albert Einstein suffered certain indignities in getting his pass port, Mr. Messersmith was un justly accused of responsibility. This was all straightened out and President Roosevelt npped him as minister to Austria. He returned to his present post in July, 1938. He was for 14 years superintendent of the Delaware schools before entering the consular service. $ Consolidated News Features. WNU Servic#. Star Dust ★ Deanna Stays Deanna ★ Bouquets for McCarey ★ Clothes Make the Guide By Virginia Vale jEANNA DURBIN seems to be the current heroine D of moviedom, because of her excellent performance in “Three Smart Girls Grow Up.” A lot of people who liked “Three Smart Girls” were pretty sure that they wouldn’t like this sequel; sequels have away of being disappointing, especially in the movies. Then along came Universal with the announcement that in this one their money-making little star turned glamorous. That made ev erything much worse. If Deanna was going in for slinky gowns and false eyelashes even the critics who had always liked her were going to use barbed adjectives, and urge their readers to stay far, far away DEANNA DURBIN from theaters where those three par ticular smart girls grew up. But along came the picture, and there has been dancing in the streets. The picture is swell, and Deanna isn’t “glamorous,” she’s just herself. It’s a picture that ev erybody ought to see. Our hero this time is Leo McCar ey, director-producer, who also did a turn as writer for “Love Affair.” The picture is one of the best that has come out of Hollywood in a long, long time. When you see it, you might pause and think of how very bad it might have been, were it not so expertly done. With a couple of not very good actors in the roles played by Irene Dunne and Charles Boyer, with a run-of-the-mill direc tor, it could easily have been a B picture. Several bouquets should go to Mc- Carey for his work on the writing end also. His movie career began with writing, you know. Hal Roach suggested that he become an actor, and he replied that he’d rather be come a writer. Within six months he was a studio executive; then he directed Laurel and Hardy and Charlie Chase comedies for five years, and fn 1936 he directed “Rug gles of Red Gap” for Paramount and was all set for big things. “Love Affair” was developed out of an idea of his, with Miss Dunne and Boyer in mind for the picture. Don’t miss it! If you liked “The Citadel” you’ll be glad to know that “Vigil in the Night,” by the same author, has been bought as a .starring vehicle for Carole Lombard. A romantic drama, it tells of the love and sac rifices of a young woman who wants to save her sister, a student nurse, from the results of a moment of carelessness which leads to the death of a hospital patient. Jack Berch, one of NBC’s hand some young baritones, recently dis covered that clothes are more im portant than he thought. With sum mer just ahead, he bought a yacht ing outfit, and liked it so much that he wore it right out of the tailor’s and back to Radio City. He was on his way through the first-floor corridors to the elevators when an elderly lady stopped him. “Young man,” said she, “I stopped to look at one of the murals here, and the touring group I was with has gone on. Please continue my tour.” Berch used to be a small-town boy, and learned to be polite to el derly ladies. So, cursing his yacht ing cap, he escorted her to the front door, industriously describing the murals they passed on the way. There she discovered her group, and he fled to the studios, his cap in his hand. * — Paul Whiteman’s replacing Burns and Allen on the air for the summer could be listed os “Turn about is fair play.” They once replaced Paul Whiteman. * — ODDS AND ENDS —// you liked “Lives of a Bengal Lancer ” you'll look fortvurd to “The Real Glory”—same star, Gary Cooper, same director, Henry Hatha way . . .

Because stable manure is difficult to obtain, a complete commercial fertilizer recommend ed by your dealer will prove most satisfactory. Before applying fer tilizer, however, give considera tion to a few simple, practical hints. First, be cautious! Never apply fertilizer recklessly or over-abun dantly. Don’t be like the man who saw a neighbor get good re sults from a sparing use of ferti lizer. He proceeded to apply 10 times as much, but expecting 10 times as good results—but his gar den proved worthless. Broadcast the complete fertiliz er over the soil 10 days before planting, using about three pounds per square rod. Three or four weeks after p]onl<«Jrii the garden seems a bit backward, apply a side dressing. Sprinkle fertilizer lightly alongside the rows, about six inches from the plants; then cultivate. Apply only from one to two pounds per square rod of garden. From Happiness “As you hold loving thoughts to ward every person and animal and even toward plants, stars, oceans, rivers and hills, and as you are helpful and of service to the world, so you will find your self growing more happy each day, and with the happiness comes health and everything you want.” -Luther Burbank. “I’ve boon enjoying P.A. for 5 years M jf now," Durkin says, “and for easy HHeHSEesPEm) ilrl* * and mildness nothing m i m ae wa m ■■ heats P.A.” Well, that’s what you f " ,in a finer grade of to- t ’W J VUNT FvKvET I remove tongue-bite.
