Damon Runyon wrote "The Three Wise Guys," which is a fair tip-off on its contents. The kindly crooks are in it (Raymond Walburn, Bruce Cabot, Harry Tyler) and Miss Furness is their accomplice until love (Mr. Young) finds a way. When he is disinherited for marrying the girl, the pair somewhat surprisingly take a trip around the world and end up in Pennsylvania (Herman Bing for Dutch comedy relief.) The finale draws a most astonishing parallel with Christmas Eve, Bethlehem, and the Three Wise Men (Guys.) I couldn't believe my eyes.
Except when he forgets to keep up the pace, George B. Seitz has directed this modern parable - so modern that it even takes a crack at government relief and "plowing-under"-in a manner to insure its acceptance as good Class B entertainment. The fire-hose scene is pointless but amusing. M.-G.-M. produced.
"Polo," a Pete Smith oddity, and newsreels fill in.

Pan-American Airways Officials Study San Diego Facilities for Terminal of Pacific Line
Col. Charles A. Lindbergh, technical adviser of Pan-American Airways, is expected here within three weeks to make final decision on the eastern terminal of the line's trans-Pacific service, Juan A. Trippe, president of the line, said yesterday.
Trippe and his party, consisting of Col. Clarence M. Young, director of the aeronautics branch of the Department of Commerce; L. L. Odell, chief airport engineer for Pan-American lines, and C. H. Schildhauer, chief of the line's engineers, landed at the San Diego Naval Air Station and immediately went into conference with Capt. John H. Towers, commander, who discussed unofficially the possibilities and facilities of San Diego.
Following luncheon with Commander Towers and John L. Fox, president of the San Diego Chamber of Commerce, the party visited Lindbergh Field, proposed terminal site.
Trippe said he favors San Diego, because although 230 miles father from Hawaii than San Francisco, San Diego does not present "a hazardous weather problem."
"Final decision," he added, "rests with Col. Lindbergh."
Stanley C. Kennedy, president of the Hawaiian Inter-Island Airways, also revealed his company plans to consider San Diego as its California air base. His company holds government mail contracts from the islands to Honolulu.
The San Diego Harbor Department, it was revealed, has agreed

The Pan-American Airways system, whose technical committee Col. Lindbergh heads, is rapidly advancing plans for the establishment of an experimental air transport service to link California, the Hawaiian Island, the Philippines and other American possessions in the Pacific and the Orient. Other islands tentatively included in the route are Midway, Wake, Guam, and probably Yap.

Electra, one of the three monoplanes in a fleet of that type to be delivered to Pan-American Airways, came to Los Angeles from San Francisco Monday in one hour and thirty-three minutes. The time, though unofficial, was two minutes under the record established two weeks ago by a United Air Lines transport.
Odell and W. J. Barrows piloted the ship.
After landing at the Grand Central Air Terminal the party flew to San Diego to survey that area for a terminal.

She introduced Gladys O'Donnell, national vice-president of the Ninety-Nine Club, who spoke on "Sportsman Flying;" Mary Charles, aviatrix, on "Air-Mindedness;" Elizabeth Kelly Inwood of Washington, D. C., on "Flying for Health and Happiness;" Matilde Moisant, the second woman in the United States to receive a license, on "Learning to Fly in a Pusher;" Edith Boydston Clark, on "Unchartered Ways;" Ruth Elder, the first woman to attempt to fly the Atlantic, on "Flying Experiences From Land, Through Air, to Water;" Elliott Roberts, aviatrix and horsewoman, and Harry Wetzel on "Aircraft and Transportation." Capt. Ira Acker from March Field gave a brief summing up of the program.
He said that he had been told that women's clubs were not a place to discuss army preparedness for they were all pacifists. A demonstration of this kind, he said. dispelled such illusions. He urged attention to the November ballot, and warned against radicalism, which, he said, spelled misery, for California if permitted to gain greater foothold.
More than six hundred attended the program which is the fourth in a series entitled "Adventure."
