Denny, in this latest film version of the famous old stage play, easily surpasses any of his previous efforts, not excepting the hilariously funny "California Straight Ahead" which proved his claim for the title of Am- erica's foremost comedian. The story itself evolves around the difficulties of a twenty-five-dollar-a- week clerk in living up to his wife's Junior B. B. News (Continued from page 6) secured for the occasion.

His great scheme, for Jewish colonization reached an- .usual proportions and the found- mg of a large-sized settlement was interrupted only by his death --The Editor. When Joae Miguez, the wealthy Marrano banker, decided in 1549 to leave the Netherlands and settle in some country where he could openly profess his Judaism and free himself from the obnoxious hypocricy entail- ed in the m'actice of pseudo-Judaism, he could have had little idea of the thrilling and glorious future which awaited him. Miguez, or to give his real name Joseph Nasi, intended to journey to Constantinople, where he heard that Jews were faMy treated and their faith unmolested. But travel in those days both difficult and danger- ous, and when he had got as far as Venice, misfourtunes which befell his aunt Gracia with whom he was travel- ling resulted in the imprisonment of the latter. Despairing of helping her without assistance, Joseph proceeded alone to the Turkish Capital. With a view to obtaining his aunt's release, Joseph obtained through the introduction of the Jewish Court Physician an interview with Sulai- man, Sultan of Turkey. Sulaiman was immediately impressed with the (:harming personality of the young Jew and there sprang up a friendship which was to have the most profound influence on Joseph's career When Joseph discovered the friend- ly attitude of the Sultan to the Jewish people, he broached a scheme which had long been maturing in his mind; a project for extensive Jewish colon- ization under the protection of a friendly power. He was a pretty shrewd judge of character and accord- ingly based his arguments upon the great commercial advantages which would accrue to the Turkish Govern- ment from the sponsering of such a scheme. For a while nothing was done in the matter, although as far as Joseph's personal request was concerned the Sultan succeeded after protracted negotiations in obtaining the release of his Aunt Gracia from the Venetian Government. At that time there was open strife between the Sultan's two sons as to who should inherit the Tur- kish throne. The Sultan himself re- frained from interference and avioded taking either side. Joseph espoused the cause of the eider brother Salim and did his best to induce the Sultan to give a definite decision in his favor. At last the two parties came to open warfare. Joseph worked hard for his candidate, and as luck would have it, Salim succeeded in defeating and ut- terly routing his brother's troops in a pitched battle. The result was of great value to Joseph, who was made by Salim one of his special guards of honour. It transpired also that the old Sultan had in reality favored Sa- lim's succession, although unwilling to commit himself and in recognition of Joseph's services created him Go- vernor of the Tiberias district of Pal- estine. Here was an opportunity for Joseph to put into practice his great scheme for Jewish colonization. His first precaution was to repair and recon- struct the fortifications of Tibreias itself. His next move was to estab- lish industries so that the colonies might be based on a firm commercial standing. With this in view, he set about introducing the cultivation of the mulberry tree, thinking that cli- matically and geologically the colony 'The Unguarded Hour' Milton Sills - Doris Kenyon Sun., Men., April 4-5 "The Masked Bride" Mac Murray Tuesday, April 6 "Time the Comedian" Mac Busch - Lew Cody Wed., Thur..

As regards attracting colonists, the time was particularly propitious. The Inquisition in Spain and Portugal, in Italy and the Spanish Netherlands, was being persued relentlessly. The occupant of the Holy See was a ruth- less Jew-hater, so that the unfortun-I ate Isrealites in the Papal States were : easily attracted by the prospects of a l return to Eretz Isreal. There was, however the difficulty of transport. Quite apart from the navies of the various South European sea powers, who practiced piracy under the guise of blockade, the Mediterranean was infested with privateers, so that a journey to the Holy Land was in all respects a risky business. More than one shipload of Jewish emigrants fell into the hands of pi- rates and were murdered to a man. Nevertheless. a fair number of Jews, principally from Italy succeeded in reaching Tiberias and for alittle while their prospects seemed moderately secure. Meanwhile Joseph, realising necessity of watching the play of in- fluence at the Turkish Court, was ob- liged to leave the colony to a deputy. The old Sultan died, and Joseph's friend Salim came to the throne. In appreciation of the Jewish states- man's loyal service, Salim bestowed upon him the Dukedom of Naxos, in which was included the overlordship of a dozen or more islands of the Gre- cian archipeligo. A handsome grant was allowed out of the revenue from the customs to enable him to main- tain his position. The new Sultan made of Joseph his chief adviser in foreign affairs, and in this way the Jewish Duke was able to pursue a policy of antagonism to- wards those reactionary powers who allowed the infamy of the Inquisition in their lands. The Dutch were fight- ing desperately against Spanish-Cat- holic tyranny, and Joseph did all in his power to assist them. Hetried to induce the Sultan to declare war on Spain so as to draw the Spanish forces off the hard-pressed Hollanders. In this he was unsuccessful, but he was able to pay off old scores against the Venetians and French, both of which governments were at that time bit- terly anti-Semitic. By chance Joseph got the news very early of a disastrous fire which had demolished the largest arsenal and ship-yard of the Venetian Repub- lic. He decided this was the time to strike a blow at the sea-power of Ven- ice, and accordingly set out immed- an expedition for the cap- Venetian strong-hold of yprus. Sultan Salim doubted very nueh whether the scheme would meet with success, and actually promised to make Joseph King of Cyprus if its Sat. and Sun., April 3-4 Held Over I Douglas Fairbanks in | "Don Q" l B lWed., Th ....

Joseph was suc- cessful, but the Sultan thought better of his promise and added the islands to his dominions. The passage of years filled with endless court intrigues, and the more or less thankless task of serving a mas- ter who had neither imagination, ideals, nor political courage, made Joseph long to retire into private life, and he seized the opportunity of the Sultan's death to give up his court career. Somehow he managed to a- void trouble at the hands of his ene- mies, but on his death his property, which hc had intended should be left for the benefit of his poor co-religion- ists, was seized by the son of the mon- arch whom he had so faithfully served.
