"1 dnesday i IV AMuuo'Qoxns 2. 1944 It Looks Close From Here Amid jeers of ."ignoramus", and 11 be back next year, you cad," Norman C. Hopper, terror of the hip and thigh era, made it two in a row this year when he lifted a record catch of German Brown trout over the head of crestfallen Marvin Brown in the annual "World's Championship Fishing Contest," held last week on Beaver Creek near Kamas City, Utah. Hopper, who has been crowned world's champion sporadically since around 1919, was too handy with the worms and flies. Brown didn't have the chance of a tallow-legge- d St. Bernard chasing an cat through a Bessemer con verter last Thursday morning. It was Hopper, all the wayx who not only made the largest catch fish during their five- - or match which ended at 11 a. ,m., but also caught the first and the largest. Work in Maintenance Both gladiators are employed in the production control of maintenance. Judges were Harold Osborne and Gunter Hiller. "I never in my life saw a man work as hard as he did," Hopper said yesterday over the telephone. "He would have given $20 to have won that match." At a fish fry that afternoon Hopper acknowledged that he Was world't champion. "Cripes, I had to carry him back to camp," he continued. "I told him to train for about 10 years and then take me ori again when I'm in a wheel chair."

Shortly after the contest was officially concluded Brown hooked his fly into the biggest German Brown of the day, but too late. up Hopper probably put the fish to it. Brown was seized immediately with an acute attack of psychotic bends and nearly in the roily waters' of Beaver Creek. The last we heard Brown was at the medical dispensary with a pair of swollen legs. , "He told me he wanted to have another go at it next year," Hopper said, beaming, "but I told him if he kept on following me around I'd kill him off.

Whitaker of La Salle, Il- linois entrained to Ft. Oglethorpe Ga., there to get her basic training Pvt. and to become proudly Lucille J. Whitaker of the Women's Army Corps. Having been a civilian mechanic, it was only natural that upon completion of her basic training, Pvt. Whitaker should be sent out to do the job with which she was most familiar. Thus she was assigned to OASC as an airplane mechanic in Base Operations Hangar. Titled "Assistant, Crew Chief," Pvt. Whitaker has been proclaimed her fellow mechanics and inby structors as an ideal worker who could always be counted upon to do her job in the most proficient and efficient manner. She bid OASC goodbye this week as she left for a furlough home since shortly she is to report to Georgia for overseas training.

Milton Schwarts "The Adventures of Maik Twain" is a chronicle of American history with much eulogizing, and unnecessary speechmaking, but an enjoyable picture. Frederick March turns in a wonderful performance as the eminent Mark Twain, unmarred by any ham. His supporting cast does equally well in their respective roles. Perhaps the biggest surprise of the picture is the polished performance of Alexis Smith in the role of Livy, Twain's wife. The acting as a whole was mature and well done. Photographically, it left much to be desired, but a superb musical score more than compensated for the blank spots in its technical makeup. The plot is the life of Samuel Langhorne Clemens, known to us Mark Twain. Sadly enough the picture could only portray a few of the high spots in hi colorful life, which was crammed with enough good material for 10 good films. The devotion of Clemens to his wife, which is the jmajoi theme of the picture, is intelligently and . .sympathetically done. The scenes are kept to a minimum, thanks to adequate direction. As America grew, so too, did Mark Twain grow. In the humorous scenes as well as the dramatic ones, you can sense the growth of our country, seen through the eyes of Mark Twain. There can be no better recommendation for any Hollywood product. As an afterthought, the current mpvieland preoccupation with the Great Beyond is given a nod at the end of the picture, yet it doesn't seem out of place. Twain was very fond of Heaven. His story, "Captain Eli Stormfield's Visit to Heaven" was rigbi in line. Incidentally, if you haven't read it, do so at your first opportunity. I think it will make the picture a little more enjoyable. Return . Merrill C.
