Roosevelt call William S. Knudsen a \great big teddy bear\? That's one thing this town is gossiping about today. An. OCD official disclosed that Mrs. Roosevelt, who is Assistant Civilian Defense Director, went to see-.Knudsen last week. Mrs, Roosevelt is inclined to view the community problems that •result when workers are laid off while plants convert to war pro- duction as of concern to the OCD, the official explained. He said that Mrs. Roosevelt cited Knudsen's home town of Detroit, the heart of the auto industry, as an example- of the need for planning ahead to meet problems resulting from con- version unemployment. A story has been published that the meeting didn't go so smoothly. It adds that Mrs. Roosevelt, telling about it later, hung the \teddy bear\ description on Knudsen. But this bear stuff is nothing new to Big Bill, for a bit of re- searth into stories written about him reveals that he has been pre- viously likened to \a well-dressed but very intelligent polar bear.\ He is six feet three and very broad-shouldered. <S^- -<•> AT THE THEATRE <s> , ——«> Playing for the last times at the Strand Theatre tonite is'Franchot Tone in \This Woman Is Mine\ and Preston Foster in \The Night of January 16th.\ Throughout most of the se- quences of 20th Century-Fox's \Confirm or Deny,\ starring Don Ameche and Joan Bennett, a tough looking white English bull dog follows Don Ameche, who plays the role of an American war cor- respondent in bomb-wraeked. Lon- don. The dog effectively symbolizes the qualities which have made the English people so long able to re- sist the assault of the Luftwaffe. This symbolism is particularly noticeable in a dramatic scene in which the bulldog is seen on a rooftop, barking his defiance of Nazi planes zooming above and dropping their lethal missiles. The dog is a seasoned actor and gives splendid support-to the ex- citing performances of the rest of the cast of \Confirm or Deny,\ which plays Friday and Saturday at the Strand. The companion feature on the same program is the action hit \Six-Gun Gold\ with Tim Holt in the leading role.
