'Fighting the Fire Bomb’ Now Showing at Campus Theater “Fighting The Fire Bomb,” a short subject film produced for the government in the interest of na tional defense, is showing at the Campus as an added attraction. A vivid description of the various methods suggested by military authorities for combatting the menace of fire bombs, the film was produced for the Office of Civil ian Defense and is released by Warner Bros., in cooperation with the War Activities Committee of the motion picture industry, The film is a contribution to the well-being of American citizens in war times and in addition is pro duced in an entertaining manner. Whether or not air raids ever take plac^ on the continental United States, it is of paramount importance that every citizen be familiar with the precautionary —DISTRACTIONS— (Contmued trom Pag* I) acting done in a sincere manner that is thoroughly enjoyable. It was voted the Picture of the Month by Boxoffice magazine, one of the leading authorities in the critical field. Tracy and Hepburn have really made a hit in their first co-starring vehicle. Jack London’s story, “Gold Hunters of the North,” has been made into a motion picture en titled “NORTH TO THE KLON DIKE.” Brod Crawford and Ev elyn Ankers have the outstanding parts in the picture that plays at the Campus today and tomorrow. It is action, adventure and melo drama all well proportioned to pro vide worthwhile entertainment. The other half of the double feature at the Campus today and tomorrow is “JAIL HOUSE BLUES” with Nat Pendleton and Elizabeth Risdon featured. It is the story of a convict in a peni tentiary presented in a new light with the accent on the comical side. It is enjoyable and amusing al though presenting nothing excep tionally outstanding to the pro gress of motion pictures.

They added three more in the fourth on successive hits by Scog- gin, Porter and Peden. Scoggin tripled, Porter singled and Peden homered over the left field wall to account for the runs. Another run came in on an error, a single, and a wild pitch in the sixth, but it was in the seventh canto that the Cadets climaxed and iced the tilt with a six run outburst. Rog ers’ long homer over the right center field wall was the telling blow of the rally. Meanwhile, the Ponies could do nothing with Stevenson’s offer ings.

One of the greatest scourges of any air raid is the extensive fire damage caused by unattended incendiaries. In the film several methods of procedure for fighting fires are outlined. Use of sand, garden hose, soda-acid extinguisher, foam spray and pumps are among the meth ods described.

Hedges, head of the chemistry de partment at the college. Dr. Hedlges substituted for Col. Bray- Jton last year and since then has attended the War Departrhent Civ ilian Defense school at Edgewood Arsenal, Md. While there he learned the latest approved methods of fighting fires of incendiary origin and intends to stress that part of fire-fighting at the coming school. “We did consider cancelling the annual school since there was a question of available dormitory space but in view of the import ant part the firemen may have to play in national defense, it was decided to go ahead as originally planned,” Dr. Hedges explained. Scheduled to appear on the pro gram will be Col. Brayton, who is director of the War Depart ment Civilian Defense School be ing operated at A. & M. If at all possible the visiting firemen will attend several of Col. Brayton’s classes where they will take part in fighting fires started by actual bombs and also will be given in struction in identification of gas ses and decontamination following gas attacks.

MEN WILL BE INTERVIEWED AGAIN... ► Last year, on 39 different college campuses, men were asked for can did opinions about clothing styles. This poll, conducted by The Saturday Evening Post, is being repeated this year for more than reasons of fash ion. It should have important usefulness in the national conservation of cloth and other materials. Manufacturers and retailers want to know exactly what kind of clothing college men like best—what they find most practical. Govern ment regulations about clothing make it vital to get such facts in advance. Maybe you were one of the 4,179 college men who helped provide the information last year. Maybe you also saw the Post Portfolio of Col lege Styles in your favorite store when you bought clothes last fall. It made buying simpler for a good many men. The 2nd Annual Post Poll of College Styles will be made very soon through cooperation of the BATTALION. Results will again be available to you in leading stores this fall. When your local reporter asks you for information, your answers will be appreciated. THE SATURDAY EVENING POST POLL of COLLEGE STYLE FOR 1942-43 * . *
