'K idnappers' Presents
Portrait of Young Life
'THE LITTLE KIDNAPPERS" is a delightful and highly entertain-
ing bit of movie making about two little boys who grow up in
Nova Scotia. Its chief appeal is a refined kind of sentimentality which
never becomes saccarine, and a pleasantly engaging romantic outlook
on childhood.
Eight-year-old Harry (Jon Whiteley) and five-dear-old Davy
(Vincent Winter) come to their Grandaddy's (Duncan Macrae) farm
because they are orphans.
Grandaddy sends them to school, teaches them to pray, and at-
tempts to bring them up as disciplined Christian youth. The boys,:

GOP Governors 'Nix' Nixon:

ed privately but vigorously against
the idea of accepting Vice-Presi-
dent Nixon as the GOP candidate
if Ike doesn't run.
Informed that the President had
been trying to sell "his boy Dick,"
GOP governors threw up their
hands. They remembered the all
too recent Gallup poll showing Ke-
fauver running far ahead of Nix-
on in a test Presidential heat. And
no matter how much Ike likes
Dick, GOP politicos are making it
clear they don't like Dick them-
It was to sell Nixon that Ike
bowed out of the proposed trip to
San Francisco for the 10th anni-
versary of the United Nations. The
excuse Eisenhower gave was that
his schedule was too crowded.
When San Franciscans checked his
schedule, however, they found it
was not crowded, but that Ike was
just pushing Nixon to the fore in-

IT LOOKS AS IF the chief bene-

ficiaries from the oyster digging
by Navy men at government ex-
pense near Newport News, Va.,
were the admirals. An investiga-
tion by the Navy at Cheatham
Annex, Va., recently reported by
this column, shows that for years
civilian workers have been em-
ployed by the Navy Department at
the taxpayers' expense to dig oys-
ters and send them to the high
brass in Washington and Norfolk.
Although junior officers were
officially cited in the investigation
report, it now develops that among
the admirals who got the oysters
were Vice Adm. "Oyster Forks
Charley" Fox, Rear Adm. John
Ends Wood, former Commander
of the Norfolk Supply Center, and
Adm. T. Earle Hipp, also stationed
in Norfolk.
Admiral Wood, now retired and
living at Elkins Park, Pa., was
quite frank in admitting that he
relished oysters.
"Did you know, Admiral," he
was asked by this column, "that
oyster digging was going on at
Cheatham Annex 2"
* *i *
"YES," SAID the Admiral, "as
a matter of fact I received a quart
personally every once in a while.
But as far as I knew, they were

being gathered during off-duty
"Did you assume, Admiral, that
the employees at Cheatham were
volunteering their free time to sup-
ply oysters for Navy officers?"
"Well," parried the Admiral,
"there are all kinds of good things
down in that part of the country
-fish, oysters, lobster. I just as-
sumed some of the officers went
out on week ends and picked up
these oysters."
Actually, oyster digging for the
benefit of admirals by Navy per-
sonnel cost the taxpayer about
$2,000 a year.

cannot be eaten. One day, Harry
and Davy come upon a baby that
has been temporarily abandoned
by its sister. They decide it will
do in lieu of a dog, and proceed to
set it up in a homemade shelter.
The kidnapping is finally dis-
covered by Grandaddy; Davy,
afraid the child will suffer the fate
of domesticated animals, screams,
"Don't eat it, Grandaddy. Don't
eat it." Wrathful neighbors bring
the boys to court and the fury of
righteous society is turned upon
the innocents; but the matter is
happily solved.
It is rather obvious that every-
one concerned with the film (from
screenplay writer to director)
knows and understands children.
Never are the boys allowed to be-
come overly "cute." Their scenes
have a fresh and appealing nat-
uralness, as if the camera were
catching them at an unsuspecting
moment of play.

A FRIPHTENED, scrawny looking freshman,
a little of the "hick" showing through,
tiptoed into an East Quad lounge seven years
ago and looked around.
Those that noticed him felt a little sorry
for him. Then the freshman sat down to
play the piano, and no one ever felt sorry
for Paul McDonough again.
Last night, at a graduate mixer, Paul Mc-
Donough assembled his orchestra for a fare-
well appearance in Ann Arbor. The Escanaba
honky-tonk pianist will graduate from the
University Law School next month for a
career that will attempt to mix law with
music, a .rather uncommon combination.
It's been a cheer-packed seven years for
Paul. Thousands of couples have danced to his
orchestra in" that time. Many thousands of
others have whistled his songs, in an area
extending, generally, from Buffalo to Chicago
--the Union Opera's usual road itinerary.

PAUL JOINED the Opera four years ago for
a show called "Never Too Late." He wrote
comparatively little, but one song he did write,
"Can't Imagine" became, and still is, a cam-
pus favorite.
Speaking with a little of the reminiscence
in his eye, Paul attributes the song to a
"crush" for his orchestra's vocalist Betty Mag-
yar. Betty's getting married (to another) this
fall, so there's usually a teary violin in the
arrangement when he plays the song now.
Paul feels that where his piano-playing is
concerned, he may have come on the scene
25 years too late. His nimble fingers are hap.
pier banging out a ragtime beat than "this
Dave Brubeck stuff."
BUT THAT he can still make honky-tonk
style appealing is witnessed by the fact
that an Escanaba nightclub offered $200 a week
for his talents this summer.
A law professor heard the figures and like
everyone else wondered, "Why study law?"
Paul isn't too sure himself. He'll admit that
his first love is music, but is proud that de-
spite a four-year time-consuming hitch with
the Opera, he's getting out of law school at a
relatively green age of 23.
(And he'll deny the rumor that the reason
he went to law school was to continue his
career with the all-male musical.)
At the piano, old time song favorites are
his forte and he can rattle off music, lyrics
and even date of publication to most any tune
back to 1895.
THE MEN of Strauss house, his home for
the six years, were soon happy to find
that he likes nothing more than to play, and
have a group around the piano sing along.
He's been known to go on for hours this way,
until the last hoarse voice softly whispers it*

THE CHORUS did a good job
most of the evening. However,
its weakest point was diction. As
is usual for works of this type
clarity is sacrificed for the beau-

The chorus did sing with good
intonation and balance through-

voices seemed to strain a great
