Feb. 16, 1942: America’s 16 million bowlers are being asked to help promote physical fitness and mental alertness for the nation’s fighting men in their war against the Axis, and to provide relaxation for defense workers!  No effort will be spared in this strike for democracy! You just don’t see words like “keglers” in newspapers anymore… or “cagers,” “harriers,” “mermen” and “roundball.”

“To Be or Not to Be” is opening at the Carthay Circle, Grauman’s Chinese and Loew’s State.
