Henry J. (Hank) Adams, former undersheriff and one-time FBI special agent, who has just been promoted to full colonel in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, has received many endorsements and tributes during the last phase of his campaign for the next sheriff of San Diego County.

Adams’s dynamic program, for the control of juvenile delinquency and elimination of the vicious narcotics problem has won wide support from people in all walks of life as well as numerous editorial endorsements.

One of the most unqualified endorsements of any candidate for public office came from U.S. Senator Paul H. Douglas, one of the great leaders of the Senate, who sketched Adams’ illustrious background as “the one Man Army of Tulag!” in the South  Pacific with the Marines when he killed 15 enemy soldiers single-handed, his distinguished service with the FBI, and later as Under-Sheriff.

Unusual Film Shows At U.N. Dinner

Guests at the Annual Dinner of the S.D. Chapter of United Nations were given a preview of an unusual and stimulating film, “Come In, Jupiter!” produced by Ettilie Wallace, former newspaper woman.

Painting with light would be the best way to describe this new art medium dubbed “Kaleidolight” by Miss Wallace.  The idea was originated seven years ago to amuse children at holiday time. Two years later the process was attempted with film and gradually developed to its present professional state.

Those fortunate enough to have viewed this film saw what might easily develop into a new medium in motion pictures.  Its possibilities for use in theatres and schools are limitless.

“Come In, Jupiter,” opened with a message from Albert Einstein. It was produced with the capable assistance of Clyde Grant, designer at Hollywood Paramount.  Emily Rose (Scott) Romano wrote the script.  Lloyd Van Haden of Vista composer and director of the music; John Theobold, English instructor at S.D. State College, and a poet in his own right, who was narrator for the film, and Robert Barkley, who handled the camera work. University of Southern California helped with the final laboratory work.
