Papa was a preacher, and he often said that his churches made sure he stayed humble by paying him so little. Once when I was a little kid I remember overhearing him tell Mom that if he could only earn ten thousand dollars a year he thought that they would be all right. Several years later I was going to college to be a preacher and working full time in a bakery all night long in Butler, Pennsylvania - and when I was ready to file my income tax I realized that I made almost ten thousand dollars. I remembered Dad's words and thought that he was possibly still not earning that much. But no matter how tight the budget was when I was growing up we always had a daily subscription to the newspaper . . . except for the Sunday paper. We never got the Sunday newspaper, or for that matter spent any money on Sundays - that was the day we gave to God, and we never spent any money on that day.

But it is the newspaper that brought back those thoughts. It was an indispensable part of everyone's day all over the country until the internet became our preferred source for news. When I was growing up Dad read the news articles, Mom did the crossword puzzles and word scramble games, and I had the comic page covered. Years later, when I moved to Cleveland, Ohio for work, I got a job in a steel drop forge, and there were long periods of waiting between batches of steel that we would forge into shape. During those long waits I would quietly sit on a bench and read the Cleveland Plain Dealer from cover to cover. I learned to love the little city of Cleveland as I read, and to this day I still have a soft spot in my heart whenever a Cleveland sports team is playing . . . and losing. Anyway, for much of my adult life the newspaper was a vital part of each day. But today . . . the world has changed. Newspapers all over the country are struggling and searching for new forms of income, because the once lucrative newspaper business has gone away. Today if you ask a room full of people if they had the current newspaper for their town the answer you got would probably depend on their age. It seems that only old timers clinging to their memories of days gone by continue to read the daily newspaper. But in this action-packed crime adventure from 1935 it is the newspaper reporter who is on the ball and ready for action to save the Sea Captain and his lovely young daughter from the nightclub racketeers. Oh yeah, in 1935 newspapers were often the source of crime-busting efforts, and it seems that every nightclub in the country was owned by a crook willing to rob, shoot, and steal anything that wasn't nailed down. Pop a nice big bowl of white kernel popcorn in a 3 quart sauce pan, drizzle a bunch of warm melted butter over it and get ready for car chases in some beautiful 1935 cars and enough shooting and fist fighting to keep everyone on the edge of their seat rooting for the good guys.
