'When three sailors hit a big town like New York, their first thoughts usually turn to — well, you know. After a bit of looking, our three sailors find two girls who consent to be escorted by them. Each sailor trys to outdo the other, jealousy arises, and a brawl ensues, leaving the boys alone once more. Soon, however, an­ other young lady passes by, the sailors forget their little disagreements and are again off in the usual pursuit. INTERMISSION - 10 minutes

DriNCEl'JIKJoan Durr'^ Today, in an era of science and satel- , lites, the mystery of the universe has lost none of its magical appeal* We can close our eyes and dream of the future, wondering whether this nebulous infinity might soon become the ideal spot for a romantic holiday. ^ Only experience makes us fully realize that the distant beyond, unlike the cold emptiness people so often assign to it, is really a lovers* retreat, where even the scientists* telescope can not probe the cloudy darkness of its nights* Earthians•«••••••«.Jack Hinton Reba Akers Eileen Mitchell Spacians*..........
