Aboard are only nine people—six
men and three women. There is
no room for a stowaway. Espe
cially a corpulent one.
Hitchcock, however, has ingeni
ously solved the difficulty.
One of the nine passengers is an
injured sailor, played by William
Bendix. who, just before his ship
went down, was on deck duty. Fcr
warmth, he had a newspaper
wrapped around him under his pea
jacket. In the lifeboat, he un
wraps the newspaper and, when
| it dries out, he picks it up and
As he does so ,the camera gets
a glimpse of the back page, on
which there is a three-column ad

obesity-slayer. The ad features
“Before” and "After” photos of a
300 pound gent who, by the timely
use of “Redueo,” is now down

Steinbeck Wrote Story
What happens in a lifeb r
adrift at sea? What kind of
people might be found in such a
boat? What do they do while
awaiting rescue? What happens?
What could happen?
Director Alfred Hitcheock. Hol
lywood's maestro of suspense,
maker of such pictures as “The
Lady Vanishes.” “Rebecca” and
“Shadow of a Doubt,” began ask
ing himself these questions about
a year ago. He was fascinated by
newspaper accounts of people who
, had survived ship sinkings, living
for days in lifeboats.
A Chicago resident says: “1 suf

severe throbbing headaches, dizzi

my doctor and. on his advice, triec
the treatment for two weeks undei
identical conditions as previous
treatments. Within only three days
my bad headaches and diz2y spells
were gone. My high blood pressure
was reduced and I sleep fine.”
Diamonex goes directly to work
in three different ways to aid in
the relief of these dangerous symp
toms. Results are speedy—within
as short a time as two weeks suf
ferers often find that Diamonex has
accomplished 75 of the total re
duction possible with this formula.

Steinbeck had never written a
screen original, but he was to
taken with Hitchcock’s idea that
he agreed to tackle this assign
ment. He went to New York,
studied lifeboats, interviewed sur
vivors of sinkings at sea, then out
lined a story. From that outline,
scenarists Jo Swerling and Alma
Reville fM's. Hitchcock in private

will be a new and exciting experi

now filming it.
Its tide is “Liftb at.”
As the picture opens, the camera
peers through an early-morning
fog in mid-Atlantic, scan-ing the
debri--littered sea above a newly
sunken freighter. In ike distance
appears a lenely lifeboat with only

nearer. It passes into the boat

Money to Build Omaha and
Her Large Industries
MUST Come from the East
Simply because there isn’t enough
local money available!
Money to build Omaha’s schools, streets, sewers and
probably even the City Hall—to say nothing of the money
Omaha used to purchase its water and gas utilities for
the most part, came from the “east.” The reason ... that’s
the only place enough money can be raised to finance the
things metropolitan cities must have.
New money is needed all the time in a growing com
munity. The railroads, smelters, packing houses, cream
eries, the bomber plant and other large Omaha industries
were launched, financed and developed with so-called
eastern money. In every case, most of it had to come
from the east, as do additional funds when needed for
extensions and improvements. The same is true of
Nebraska Power Company.
There isn’t a doubt that more of the money that built
the Nebraska Power Company came from Omaha than
for almost any of its larger industries. And a larger pro
portion of Nebraska Power’s income, paid to security
holders, stays in Omaha.
The people must realize that if a public power commis
sion were to issue $45,000,000 worth of revenue bonds to
purchase Nebraska Power, it’s a safe guess to say that
less than $1,000,000 worth of these bonds would be sold
in Omaha—which would be less than 2%%. And that
means nearly 98% of the public power commission’s in
terest and debt money would “go east.”
There is no sound argument for taking a chance with
public ownership when it is a known fact that you can
keep the Nebraska Power Company—a good, tax-paying
citizen—with its low rates and good service.
