Bette Davis and Olivia de Havilland play the roles of sisters who understand each other perfectly although they have completely different temperaments in “In This Our Life,” starting tonight at Warner Brothers’ Aberdeen theater.

Henry Fonda and Olivia de Havilland come to the New Hoquiam theater screen Sunday in the smash hit laugh-farce “The Male Animal.” William Tracy and Jimmy Gleason are in the companion piece, “Hayfoot.”

Barbara Stanwyck, as Sugarpuss O’Shea, shows some old professors, colleagues of Gary Cooper, how to do the Conga in “Ball of Fire” now playing at the New Bijou theater. “Tuxedo Junction” shares the bill.

Marsha DeBay, Weatherwax High School senior who has been selected for the American Field Service Americans Abroad program, will leave Tuesday to spend the summer with the Casar Kym family in Switzerland.

Marsha has received a bulletin containing tips from AFS students who have returned from Switzerland, including “Remember the good Swiss bread, cheese and chocolate and allow for (gaining) some extra pounds.”

Seventy students from Central High School in Sioux City, Iowa, were guests Tuesday of the Westport Lions Club and Chamber of Commerce.

For many this first view of the ocean, drastically changed previous conceptions of the ocean. One 15-year-old said, “At first I wasn’t impressed because the ocean was so foggy and cold but when some of us found Japanese glass floats I realized how vast it really is.”

Another of the students found the ocean to look “just like it does on television” but she “didn’t realize how the tide comes in. Some of our things were washed away because we camped too close to the water and now I can’t see how people can live so close without being afraid that they’ll wash away, too.”

More than 200 family members and friends packed the Taholah Community Center Saturday to honor Greg Law, whom they clearly view as a local hero. Law graduated from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N.Y. May 30 and got married the following day.

His friends and relatives hosted a huge meal, complete with Indian dancing, singing and other festivities. Law, along with his younger brother and sister, also were assigned an Indian name. (The characters can’t be reproduced on a keyboard.)

Law, 23, was the first member of the Quinault Tribe to earn an appointment to a military academy. Now a second lieutenant, Law will attend officer training school in Indiana and then will be stationed in Germany.
