Fireman Training Short Course To Continue This Summer;
C. C. Hedges Will Direct School in Place of Lt. Col. Brayton

'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

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.

“We did consider cancelling the

MEN WILL BE
► 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
