Excerpt from Shorts Story: For Oct.-Nov., 1938 The first reel of the new series is con cerned with three yarns, authentic and amazingly interesting. One of the episodes tells the story of the fortunes frozen in banks throughout the nation, unclaimed for years, the depositors dead or untraceable. The second tale traces the life of an auto mobile from the proud day of its birth to its last wheezing cough as it rolls to the junk yard. The third story depicts one of the country's big businesses, though little known to city dwellers. It is the marriage business, those matrimonial agencies which make it possible for lonely persons in sparsely populated areas to find themselves a mate on a mail-order basis.
