INC, FRANKFORT, KENTUCKY WINCHELL NEVER Give Up NEW YORK: The triumph of talent over rebuffs appeals to romanticists; It is a happy notion which has been nourished by stage-struck histo-rians. The truth is, of course, that every field of endeavor includes numerous individuals endowed with skill who never rean the re wards they de- WILLIAMS serve. Never- Success Story theless, the theatrical success story constantly enriches the folklore of the arts . . . Back In 1936 a young man began writing plays. One of his efforts closed out of town In 1939. It wasn't until 1943 that he au thored his initial click: Tennes see Williams' "The Glass Me naarerie." Never give up, darlings. The progression of success is gen erally more moiasses man iigni-ning. AMONG the theater's radiant talents is Julie Harris. Not so long ago, however, Julie had a minor role (very minor) in the Old Vic's version of "Oedipus." Ker entire role consisted of walking onstage and moaning. One evening she neglected to remove her wristwatch during her big scene. Since the Greeks did not have wristwatches, Sir Laurence Oliver later admonished her. In his most elegant manner, Sir Laurence Informed Julie: "Well, my dear, you certainly bitched thatu p." (Ratha!) CAPTURING an instant of beauty on canvas, transforming fragments of sound into enduring music, putting wings on words and sending ideas soaring these are the strange and wonderful aspects of the creative process. Occasionally, something tragic and glowing springs from darkness and agony. Mrs. Eugene O'Neill recently detailed the profound personal experience which resulted in the playwright's "Long Day's Journey Into Night." She recalled: "He explained to me that he had to write this play about his youth and his family. It was a thing that haunted him. He was bedeviled into writing it. It was something that came from his very guts, he had to get it out of his system, he had to forgive whatever it was that caused this tragedy between himself and his mother and father." FIRST-NIGHTS are s o c i a 1 events for audiences. For performers they represent an intense personal crisis. Judy Garland recently described the emotional turmoil that comes with premieres: "So you work, work, work to polish it up again and you try and go on trying. On opening night you are sure you are crazy. You suffer and you writhe. You know you are not going to be able to sing a note. You know nobody is going to like you. The curtain goes up and you totter onstage, half-stupified with nerves. You barely know what you are doing. It isn't until that first burst of applause comes crashing up that you get any relief. They go on clapping and you're so happy you want to cry and hug everyone down there." THE DEVELOPMENT of talent is a fascinating plot replete with the suspenseful expectancy of unforeseen events. Intensified by countless dramatic Incidents . . . Eva Marie Saint waa painfully shy, tense and self-conscious when she joined the Actors' Studio. "Showing any emotion was something to be ashamed of for me," she has confessed. Consequently, Lee Strasberg (the Studio's chief) had her doing silly things. She was told to pick her favorite tree. Then she had to be that tree on stage, in front of everybody. "It was Just silly enough," Miss Saint declares, "to shake me out of my dread of appear ing ridiculous in public." ODDLY, many actresses are shy. When Judy Holliday prepared for her singing role in Bells Are Ringing she insisted on singing for one person at a time (she standing in a corner), with her back toward the lis tener . . . Now she is chanting and enchanting thousands. - STARDOM represents the pinnacle for performers. What doea it mean when aspirations are fulfilledf What happens, when dreams become reality . . One week after Audrey Hepburn opened in "Gigi" she was elevated to stardom. The day her name autographed the marquee she dashed across the street to witness the magical moment. . When her name glowed, she turned to a friend and- sighed: ''Oh, dear, and I've still got to learn how to act Jersey Court Puts Ban On Sunday Aato Sales TRENTON, N. X, Dec. 17 UPt The New Jersey Supreme Court today upheld a law banning Sunday automobile sales. The court voted 6-0 to re verse rulings by Superior Court judges who had decided the law was unconstitutional. The validity of the law was challenged by two operators of used car lots who contended the law discriminated against car dealers and that other businesses were allowed to operate on Sundays. Chief Justice Arthur T. Van- derbilt said Sunday automobile sales pose a threat to public, health, safety and welfare and added: "In the present state of Sunday activity in this automotive age, there are sections of our highways stretching for miles almost exclusively devoted to the sale of new and used cars, where the owners and employes, forced by unreasonable and competitive lust of some of their neighbors in the trade, are compelled to maintain their business vigil every day of the week and for long hour; who can say that this is not inimical to the public good?
