Lindbergh Entering Court To Give Testimony
Break Seen As
Governor Charged With
By Postmaster - General
WASHINGTON, Oct. 6. - (AP) - A
yawning chasm opened today between
Gov. Gifford Pinchot, who has been
called a "Roosevelt Republican," and
Postmaster General Farley, the Pres-
ident's chief political aide.
The capital sat up and took notice
as Farley assailed the Pennsylvania
governor for coming out for the re-
election of Senator David A. Reed, Re-
Gov. Pinchot, an old Bull Mooser,
sought last spring to wrest the Repub-
lican nomination from Reed, who is
widely regarded as a spearhead of the
regular Republican attack on the na-
tional Democratic' administration.
Pinchot was defeated. The Democrats
nominated Joseph F. Guffey.
Recently Pinchot made a speech in
Wilkes-Barre in which, Farley said,
he expressed "his definite purpose to
aid in the re-election" of Reed.
Gov. Pinchot's political somersault,
is, to say the least, a trifle bewilder-
ing," Farley added. "In his speech an-
nouncing his return to the Republican
party, he proclaimed his high regard
for and deep confidence in President
Roosevelt and the President's policies.
"I wonder how he reconciles this
with his definite purpose to aid in the
re-election as United States senator of
David A. Reed, who is perhaps the!
most outstanding foe of the Presi-
dent's policies and who will, if he is
re-elected - which I am sure he will
not be - do everything in his power
to hamper the President's program
and to make a misdeal out of the
* THE SCREEN *:
AT THE MAJESTIC
A Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer feature, pro-
duced by Hunt Stromberg. Starring
Joan Crawford and Clark Gable; featur-
ing Otto Kruger and Stuart Erwin.
Directed by Clarence Brown. Photog-
raphy by George Folsey.
"Chained" is a good picture. But I
didn't like it. Its substance is the
glamor of love pitted against the pity
and loyalty and its ramifications are
fear and uncertainty to follow one's
judgments. This sounds bad, and yet
when the essence of the film is boiled
down, the remainder glares you in the
face as being a state of leisurely doing
nothing drawn out to make an enter-
taining film last for a long enough
The most admirable part of the film
is its presentation of the pathos of
kindness hungering for affection, un-
derstood and appreciated, but destined
to disappointment because the fates
just meant the object for someone
else. Translated into the terms of the
plot this means that a triangle exists
between Miss Crawford, Otto Kruger,
and Clark Gable. Mr. Kruger loves
Miss Crawford and showers her with
every kind of luxuries imaginable.
Miss Crawford likes him and feels
that she owes him something for all
that he has done for her.' Here is
where the villian enters. Miss Craw-
ford falls in love with Mr. Gable,
unfortunately, and the compliment
is returned. The conflict is between
true love on one hand, and respect,
pity, and loyalty on the other.
In many ways the plot resembles
the one in "Sisters Under the Skin"
which featured Elissa Landi and
Ralph Morgan. The same conflict was
present there too. But in "Chained"
the atmosphere takes on a more seri-
ous cloak, as opposed to the former
film, where there was a mixture of
satire, fantasy, and humor. Clark
Gable and Joan Crawford are getting
so that their type of acting can be
appreciated and their limitations re-
alized without resorting to the class
of wise-cracks that have found camp-
ing grounds in the past in this column.
Crawford is no Duse and Gable is io
Barrymore, but the two are very
capable at the type of characteriza-
tion that Hollywood puts out nine
times out of ten. That is to say, for
light comedy and an occasional se-
rious moment they are as good as any.
For film fans that go for the mushy
stuff, this film is just up their alley.
For those who attend with an eagle
eye and an Indian's ear tuned to catch
anything risque, this film will also
do. But for those who are bored stiff
with the eternal triangle, with so-
ciety wit, and close-ups of beautiful
faces uttering exquisite philosophies
of nothings, my advice is to hold their
horses until more pictures of ideas
are exhibited. -Jack C. Seidel.

In footh Decay
An extensive study of the cause and
control of teeth decay has been re-
sumed by a research group of the
School of Dentistry, Dr. Russel W.
Bunting said in an interview yester-
day. This work which was curtailed
last year because of lack of funds,
has been made possible again through
the aid of a new sponsor.
Dr. and Mrs. Phillip Jay Hadley,
dental bacteriologists, Dr. Martha
Hoehne, nutritionist, and Dr. Julius
White, chemist, have been engaged
especially to aid in this research. They
are studying children at the Lucas
County Children's Home in Maumee,
O., and are also carrying on experi-
ments in the University Hospital and
in the Dental Clinic. Dr. Bunting re-
ported that decay in the teeth of
300 children already has been either
controlled, or entirely prevented.
The research group is spending
much time, at the present, attempting
to produce a vaccine that would elim-
inate all decay. "There have been in-
dications of a possibility of such a
vaccine," Dr. Bunting said, "but we
have nothing definite to announce as
Dr. White, working in collaboration
with Dr. Howard Lewis, is examining
the chemical differences in the saliva
of persons who have decay and ones
who have not.
