So she's always reach ing for the stars, and now, she says, she's a whole inch closer to the sky than she was a year ago. In a movie era of glamazons on the chorus line, nnd tall stars like Alexis Smith, Rosalind Russell and Lynn Bari, Miss Baxter was a shortie. Five feet three in her stocking feet, she was sure there wasn't enough of Miss Baxter to compete. She did things about it. She reached. In the absence of any low-handing stars, she compromised on the nearest door molding. "Of course," she says, "I wrenched a shoulder, and broke a few fingernails and door moldings, but it's worked." All the Baxter-stretching exercises involve an upward stretch of the arms, and chief among them is the leap for the door molding. You hold on as long as you can, and dangle. The disadvantages of being a shortie if you're a movie actress, Miss Baxter will tell you, are many. The first is that a gal is likely to be typed as an ingenue, no matter how she yearns to play the siren. It's true that as the sweet young thing she always gets her man and the close-ups — but life close-ups, gratifying as they are, bring new troubles. Movie heroes have a habit of being around six feet tall, like William Eythe, who is with Miss Baxter in "The Eve of St. Mark." When the girl barely reaches hoi- co-star's chest, the cameraman has a problem trying to achieve good composition, and the electricians are put to it to light the boy and girl equally well. Heroines used to stand on boxes to get within kissing distance, but this is seldom used now -*- it's too obviously phoney when the long shots show that the girl doesn't reach the hero's chin. Anne Baxter wears platform shoes with still-like heels — four- inch ones if the director will let her. She uses high coiffures (with, big "rats" in the pompadour) and tops the hair-do with flowers if the scene will permit. She uses the tricks off-screen and on, and she has a few more tips for the shorties, to wit "Stipk .. to princess lines in clothes. Avoid wearing belts —they cut you in two, make you look short und squat. Wear monotone clothes, or solid color dresses with contrasting trim in vertical lines. Avoid prints that emphasize width. And stand erect, always. But best of all," she says, "are the exercises." The other tricks give an illusion, .m,.py,, _ . _, f L ~ • ^*~*A . *-.~ ~~* .,,!)-,.

Ariz. —(/P)— Italian fortunes of war in North Africa are crudely etched on the shiny aluminum sides of an Italian soldier's mess kit found, significantly, on. a junk pile in the Phoenix south mountain area. Pfc.» Vic Householder, local soldier, who found the kit, said he believed one of the Italian prisoners of war working near here had discarded it and some one placed the utensil on the salvage heap, not noticing the inscriptions. Dates and names of cities are notched in chronological order on the metal underneath Fascist and Nazi party symbols. The early entries include Verona. May 1C, 1940 and Tripoli, September 24, 1941. After Bengasi, Sivle and other battle scenes again appears Tripoli — the last inscription. as she points out, but the exercises — they're what put her an inch closer to the sky and the hero's lips.

MsUiTY, Qwwf iYELLOW CAB TAXI 8KQWN, Hollywood — Bettc Davis is back on the sound stages, throwing herself energetically into the business of acting like the good trouper she is. She has been jiway eight months, most of the time at her farm near Sugar Hill, New Hampshire. Since she left, she has been widowed'by the death of Arthur Farnsworth, but her sets are open to visitors as always — with tho one request, undramatized, that the subject of her bereavement not be brought up. Her new picture is "Mr. Skeffington," from the novel by "Elizabeth." It's a meaty part for her, a gamut-running role — but with a decidedly Billie Burke-ish fluttery flavor. Claude Rains plays the title role. the Jewish stockbroker. Young Richard Waring plays the wayward brother, and Walter Abel is the steady, reliable cousin. The twin Epstein brothers — Julius J. and Phillip G. — did the screenplay and are co-producers. They have switched the locale from England to New York, kept the characters of the book and built up a plot. It promises to be quite a production, with a shooting schedule of two months. Vincent Sherman is directing. The first day Belle was on the sot, one representing her "home," she made her usual "inspection." Set workers have come to expect it of her. The routine is something like this "Hmmm," she says, look ing around. "Hmmm. I think the flowers would look better on that table. And we'll move that light over here. And, hmhim, those curtains are, well I guess they're all right. But lhat awful clock! Who would live with a thing like lhal in her home?" After darling around to cover all the nooks and corners, she stops in front of Fred MacLean, the set- dresser, with: "It's a beautiful job, Freddie. Jusl beautiful. Those few little changes, maybe we'll make them later. Maybe they're not important. But I like it. I like it very much. Now, let's get along with a rehearsal." It's ber way of getting acquainted with all her movie "homes." So she went into her rehearsal of a. 1910 scene of the picture. She is dressed for a ball, and is putting on her jewels at her dressing Lable. She has lines with Abel and Waring, but her business with the jewels makes her forget them — or perhaps it's merely the excitement of starting a new picture, "I'm sorry," she says. "I haven't been so jittery in years." Joan Crawford, newly signed to the Davis lot, hasn't reported yet, but already the wags are playing with 1he idea of a feud between established queen Belle and new queen Joan. After Belle has bobbled th.rea tunes, waggish producer Julius J. Epstein cracks in a, loud stage whisper; "B.etter warm up Cravv- All wrapped up in their work are these "industrial acrobats" making torpedoes for the Navy at St. Louis war plant.

Utilities Board to Renew Investigation Little Rock, Nov. 11 —(/P)— The Arkansas Utilities Commission's six-year-old general investigation of the Arkansas Power Light Company will be resumed at a hearing Dec. 7 on proposed establishment of a rale base. The hearing date was scl yes- lerday in a formal order directing the utility to show cause why the commission should nol fix ils nite base at the original cost of its properties less accrued depreciation. The A. P. & L. would be required to use such a base in fixing charges !o its approximately 100,000 electric customers in Arkansas. The order said that any new rales established, if they ;irc less than those now in effect, would be retroactive to Jan. 1, 1943, adding lhat any excess over current charges must be refunded lo the consumer. The general rale investigation was started July 2, 1937 and was recessed early this year. Resumption of the investigalion was ordered,'Ihe commission said, because the A. P. & L. refused to go along will} the body in ils plan for refunds lo customers on excess earnings during the war. The commission requried the utility to make rebates lolaling $625,000 on excess earnings in 1942.

Soldier Is Re-united With Dog Albany, N. Y., Nov. 11 (fl>) — Four months of grieving ended to- dny for Pal, 17-year-old airedale- shepherd, when the dog was reunited with its weeping soldier master. Special Tech. Franklin E. Higgins went immediately to his pel upon arriving in Albany after a 1,300-mile train trip from Camp Crowder, Mo. The soldier, granted a special furlough on the request of the Red Cross when Pal suffered a stroke Saturday, burst into tears as he picked up and clung to the crying animal. Pal, recognizing him, licked his master's face. The shaggy black and tan animal which has been dying of grief since the induction of its 22-year- old constant companion, look nourishment and managed a few feeble steps yesterday for the first time since Saturday — almost as if realizing its master was rushing to its side. Mrs. Frank A. Higgins, the soldier's mother, said there is no hope for Pal, but added the reunion will gladden the dog's last hours.

News that he scored a 199-yard hole-in-one in the middle of the summer didn't leak out until today. When the ball hit the cup he didn't whoop with glee. He said: "Gosh, fellas, my wife doesn't know I'm playing golf today." Transportation Aid Denver — The Maurice Howes are bringing up their son, John, papoose-fashion. Naturally, says the father, an anthropology student, "the cradle- board makes the baby more observant than if he lay on his back staring at the ceiling."

Victor Scullawl of Martinsville, Okla., has become attached to his canine guard companion at the Hondo, Tex., Army Air Force Navigation school — and wants to keep him after the war. Mrs. Melvin C.

Hallinan did not finish his final charge yesterday, and was allowed one hour today for completing'',^ summation.
