What with point rationing forcing many Hollywood stars
to reduce, Warners’ Sidney Greenstreet has a lot to worry
about. According to a new contract which the rotund star has
just penned, he is to keep his weight above 200 pounds, or
oof he goes.

The film’s chief attraction is Miss Faye, whom press agents claim
lost nine pounds for the opus. Naturally, they don’t say she could
stand to lose about 25. However, 20th ought to be glad to get her
back, as their recent musicomedies have lacked something for the

hpppy little hearts are again high, for Doc K. (not of musical
knowledge, but a pharmacy degree from N.C. university) was re

the chilluns back to the cornfields again. Only question: how can
Kyser leap about so if he is practically a walking corpse ?

Take his quote from Sunday’s release: “If you’re the sensitive type,
never strike up a conversation with Greer Garscn just before she’s

Sing a dirge for a dream that has vanished away
Like a bubble that's pricked by a pin.
Drop a tear for the boys who awaited the day
When the women outnumbered the men,
The pool1 boys who gloated wrhen draft numbers rose
And the air corps sent calls for its own,
Who envisioned the springtime when they would be those
Who were left with the women alone.
Give a cheer for our lovely Department of War
Which, foreseeing our feminine woe,
Is returning the men to the campus once more
As fast as it caused them to go.
