parts of four early film attempts,
it includes such famous stage ac
tresses as Sarah Bernhardt, Ro
jane, Minnie, Maddern Fiske, and
Fleanora Duse. Compared with
modern movies, these films which
truly thrilled our parents, are now
good for a few snickers, caused by
the overexaggerated actions and
gestures. After seeing the picture,
movie-goers will undoubtedly be
convinced that what goes on the
stage for great acting, will not
pass for the same on the screen.
However alluring the title may
sound, “Ever Since Eden,” is the
history and development of the

“Russia” was the topic discussed
by the symposium team at West
minster house, Saturday evening.
The team includes: Wilma Foster,
Mary Landry, Beverly Carroll,
Karen Martin, Gloria Cartozian,
and Winston Carl.
The Soviets were declared to be
pioneers of a better world to come
Communism was said to have made
Russia the place it is today, raised
the standard of living to that of an
American WPA worker, educated
the people to make cannon fodder,
built up a munitions industry,
made a self-sufficient nation,
purged all disrespectful people,
established the four freedoms,
saved the world from Hitler, and
made a safe refuge for Stalin.
The Soviets will be the greatest
power in the world after the war,
and if we help them now, perhaps
Joe will save Roosevelt and Chur
chill from Tojo. It will be our duty
to help build up the shattered Rus
sian cities; we must understand
the Russians, feed them, clothe
them, arm them. Any type of anti
communistic activity is a Hitler
plot. The Communist salute Is an
excellent setting-up exercise.
