and Vera Vague in the leading roles.
The film comes to the State Theatre

the eternally optimistic Mrs. Wiggs
with :Vera Vague of the rac~o, as the
fluttery maiden lady, Tabitha Hazy.
Hugh Herbert in the role of Marcus
Throckmorton, proprietor of a matri-
monial agency, is responsible for

"Alfalfa" Switzer and Betty Brewer,
as the children, and Harry Shannon
as Mr. Wiggs.

The heat is really on for Henry
Aldrich in his-newest movie misad-
venture, "Henry Aldrich, Editor,"
which opens today at the Michigan
Theatre with Jimmy Lydon as Henry.
The film tells the laugh-packed
story of Henry's experiences as editor
of the high school paper. His troubles
stem from the fact that he believes
that by sensationalizing outside news,
he can increase the school paper's
circulation. As a result, the owner of
a store in which there was an unim-
portant little fire, brings suit against
the school because Henry, in the pa-
per, has practically accused him of
Henry himself is later arrested for
arson and brought to trial. How he
gets out of this prize predicament is
said to provide more laughs and ex-
citement than any previous Aldrich

"The Shostakovich Seventh Sym-
phony is great music on the basis of
its magnificent depth and power and
excellent musical workmanship
With these words, Dr. Serge Kous-
sevitzky yesterday gave his answer to
the charge that the "War Symphony"
has received such great interest be-
cause of its political significance and
emotional appeal rather than because
it is great music.
Speaking backstage in Hill Audi-
torium just before the sixth Choral
Union Concert, Dr. Koussevitzky as-
serted that, "Aside from the fact that
it embodies Russian political ideology,
it is a great work which will take a
certain place in the world's musical
ionization of the orchestra's mem-
"The orchestra will go on the air
at 8:00 p.m. each Saturday begin-
ning Dec. 26," a companion said. "It,
will be broadcast over a national
hook-up including 144 stations."'
On entering Hill Auditorium's stage
entrance, Dr. Koussevitzky stepped
up to waiting Dr. Charles A. Sink,
president of the University Musical
Society, and kissed him on the cheek
in old world fashion.
Speaking with \a soft accent, the
Russian-born conductor greeted Dr.
Sink in renewal of a 12-year acquain-
tance begun in 1930when the Boston
orchestra first -came to Ann Arbor.
