WARD THEATRE
Over the season Paramount will bring to the Ward Theatre, the Broadway stage hit DEAR RUTH, starring William Holden and Joan Caulfield.  This delightful story is so well known that it needs no retelling.  It is a real holiday picture, full of laughs and gayety, to add to the joy of Christmas.

At the same time the Rialto Theatre will be featuring one of the finest pictures Paramount has yet produced – GOLDEN EARRINGS, starring Ray Milland and Marlene Dietrich.
For the past few months everybody has been humming the lovely song from this picture, which bears the same name, and we are sure you will enjoy it twice as much when Miss Dietrich sings it from the screen of the Rialto during the festive week of Christmas.

POLITICS

PROFILE NO. 17

A look into the portfolio which J. (for Jehoida) Augustus McPherson totes importantly around will reveal a mass of ambitious proposals for educational development.  Westmoreland-born (Bellevue, January 1900) "Mac", is Minister of Education, peacock-proud of the job, and has been going all out to make good at it.

Opportunist Labourites wondered why Busta picked the short, spectacled, unspectacular Miconian for a cabinet post.

At first he was at sea, conscious only of the opportunity to fulfil his life-long urge to do good for "my people".  The records show that since '44, good progress has been made in building primary and infant schools, teachers cottages.  His most recent proposal is a programme for building 50 cottages to ease the housing shortage among teachers.

"To Hell With That".  Mac fights doggedly for his convictions, is a good lower.  When angry he stutters and
