' Hollywood By BOBBIN COONS Hollywood — Every year around Christmas the Hollywood Women's Press Club nominates, in secret voting, the "most cooperative" actor actress — and the least, too. Rosalind Russell won't be "it" again this year unless the club changes an unwritten rule. In Hollywood you can be' "most cooperative" for only 12 months, then somebody else gets a whuck at the title —and inherits hte headaches that the current owner says go with it. The "least cooperative" star, as Miss Russell views it, is the really lucky one. She can heave people off her sets because that's what people expect. She can refuse to pose for still pictures — which is, incidentally, one of the least smart ways to be disagreeable. She can forget about appointments, or snarl at polite questions, or kick- autograph hunters in the teenth — another clever way for a player to show she feels her oats. But the "most cooperative?" Let her so much as suggest that she'd like her set closed for a couple of days, and all Hollywood is on her neck. This is not to infer that, come Christmas Miss Russell will celebrate her loss o£ title by stiff-arming autograph seekers, telling still men where to go, and ganning visitors from her "Elizabeth Kenny" st. She wll go along being cooper- alive because she always has been — she's like that. "A good guy," we call her in the male contingent, which doesn't hand out formal titles. She was a good guy when she came to town as a $350 a week featured player, and remained on the square during the discouraging (to her) tw.eed-and-walking-shoes period of her early films. Stardom, since Hollywood found out she had glamor and one of the biggest salaries in the business haven't changed her. She still answers her own telephone. She says the servants like it better that way because the telephone rings all the time and it's always for her. She still writes letters, when she's out of town, to the men and women who help her make pictures. She still finds time to give her autograph, and to arrange to see writers who pay her the compliment of wishing to see her. This, of course, might come under the heading of good business — but there's nothing to do with business in the way she writesbgwrdlfwyp wr22 hew business in the way she writes notes to the bosses praising the people who work with her. She'd be the last person to take credit for being "cooperative," "I can't help it," she says. "I like people."

Washington By JACK STINNETT Washington Tourist business isn't what is used to be in the nation's capitol, but it's still thriving. Capitol tour guides estimate that business has dropped off about one third since Pearl Harbor, but it's hard to check exactly because the 25-cont fee isn't charged service personnel and those not charged are not counted. On week days, the number of servicemen and women who want to see the capitoi from the sub-basement up is small. The guides attribute this to the fact that service personnel has little leisure time during the week. But five months ago the capilol was opened Sundays to service personnel and their escorts only, and since then the capitol has become a Sunday shrine for boys and girls of the armed forces. According to the guides, the war hasn't made much change in the tourist's slant on things, except that the guides arc constantly bombarded by the declaration that "this is the first place in Washington where we have had a friendly word or courteous treatment." Often, toeing that mark of courtesy isn't so easy. Perhaps the most frequent indignation expressed by the sightseers comes when they have to check their cam eras at the doors. The second cause for' constant explanation is why Congress isn't always in session and close behind that comes the blistering attack on senators and representatives because they don't keep their seats or even attend when speech are being made from the floor. That last is a tough one because few visitors can be made to understand Unit most speeches are made "for the record" and that nearly all members' friends and enemies know what they are going to say before they say it. If they don't they can read it in the Congressional Record the following morning. Besides, if nil members stayed on the floor all the time their re- pective chambers were in session, hey would get precious little busi- icss done for their constituents. The guides, however, have an nswer for everything and undoubt- New Allied .' (Continued S rpm Page One) ngton, Congress and the capitol lave. Although it isn't on the agenda, they answer all questions about the statue of freedom on the capi- .ol's dome. They explain patiently often a score of times a day, why wartime visitors can't go up to the dome or down to Washington's Washington isn't tomb and-why buried there. One of the real stumpers comes from Louisianans who cry "Congressional conspiracy" when they see the late Senator Huey Long's effigy in Statuary Hall. Eleanor Smith, youngest member of the guide corps, thinks perhaps her worst worry is trying to convince her clients that President Roosevelt doesn't live in the building. When she explains about the White House, some visitors then insist on seeing where he works. Ralph Cady, a veteran of 15 year's on the guide staff, says you learn a lot from visitors too. One of his favorite descriptions of the capitol rotunda came from a farmer, who glanced up and up, whistled, and said: "Whew, what a hayloft this would make." commodate themselves to appalling conditions and to make the best of treacherous weather.' The Allies will continue to attack at every opportunity in Italy to keep the Germans on'the defensive, he said, but the campaign must necessarily be slow. The general said the speed of the military campaign in Italy would have to be measured in relation to the military situation in the whole world, taking into consideration the demands of other theaters. One correspondent said he had ard a suggestion the Allies should have landed farther up the Italian boot; instead of at Salerno. Gen. Eisenhower replied Salerno was ,pie. extreme range of -Allied- fighter planes and that any commander who sent such a large expedition out beyond its fighter range should be relieved. He added sudden raids could be made outside fighter cover but not a prolonged operation. He said bombing undoubtedly would have a great effect on Germany but that other means beside bombing would be needed to knock her out: of the war because if bombing was'all the Germans needed to fear they could devote all their energies to air defehse. Adkins to Go to Post-War Planning Meet Little Rock, Dec. 27 (/P)— Governor Adkins said today he would go to Mountain Home Wednesday to attend a meeting of the North Arkansas Planning Association to discuss post-war developments of highways in the 15-county area with emphasis on relocation of roads in the Norfork dam basin. The governor will be accompanied by A. E. Johnson, assistant to the chief engineer of the State Highway Department, and Fred J. Herring of the department's division of statistics and analysis, representing Highway Director W. W. Mitchell. Adkins said that about $1,000,000 paid by the federal government for highway'damages was being held in escrow for relocation of the roads. He said this might be increased to about $4,000,000 after the war under a bill pending in Congress which would provide three- fourths federal aid for post-war state highway construction. Adkins also told his press conference that the meeting of the University of Arkansas board of trustees called by him recently had been set for 11 a. m. Jan. 4 in Little Rock. The governor said the board would discuss "future policies 'and post-war plans" for the University Medical School. Representatives of the Arkansas Medical Society and officials of the state hospital and state planning board also will attend, Adkins said. (The following story, distributed by the Associated Press, was written by Technical Sergeant Harold Azine, formerly of WLS, Chicago, and WBAL, Baltimore, now a marine corps combat correspondent.) Bougainville — (Delayed)—When the marines hit Empress, Augusta Bay beach on this island, radio his< tory was made. For the first time, a man and a microphone recorded a landing operation against Jap- held territory. The man is blonde, 29 year old Marine Sergeant Roy A, Maypole, former producer at CBS, New York, whose equipment consisted of (1) a sound and wire recorder, and (2) guts. ' •'• At the'invasion hour on the morning of November 1, Roy was standing on the deck.of a transport in the U.

Since I have known who this person is, I have not gone either; but that is for another reason. He has long been separated from liis wife and son—has been a stranger to his home almost from his son's infancy. In all that time he has been falling from the state of a gentleman, more and more, until—" she rose up hastily, and, going out for a moment, turned, accompanied by the wreck that Redlaw had beheld last niglit. "Do you know me?" asked the Chemist. "I should be glad," returned the other, "and that is an unwonted word for me to use, if I could answer no." The Chemist looked at the man, standing in self-abasement and degradation before him, and would have looked longer, but that Milly attracted his attentive gaze to hei own face. "See how low he is sunk, how lost he is!" she whispered. "If you could, remember all that is connected with him, do you not think it would move your pity to reflec 1 that one you evfiv ioveU come to this?" "I hope it would," he answered. 'I believe it would." * * * CJIS eyes wandered to the figure standing near the door, but ame back speedily to her on whom e gazed intently. "I have no learning, and you lave much," said Milly; "I am not used to think, and you are always thinking. May I tell you why it seems to me a good thing for us to •emember wrong that has been done to us?" "Yes." "That we may forgive it." "Pardon me, great Heaven!" said Sedlaw, lifting up his eyes, "for laving thrown away thine own high attribute!" "And if," said Milly, "if your memory < should one day be restored, as we will hope and pray it may be, would it not be a blessing to you to recall at once a wrong and its fofgivness?" He looked at the figure by the door, and fastened his attentive eyes on her again; a ray of clearer light appeared to him to shine into Ms mind, from her bright face. "He knows that he could only carry shame and trouble to those he has so cruelly neglected; anc that the best reparation he can make to them now, is 'to avoic them. A very little money carefully bestowed, would remove him to some distant place, where he might live and do no wrong, and make such atonement as is lef within his power for the wrong he has done. To the unfortunate ladj who is his wife, and to his son, thl would be the best and kindes boon that their best friend coulc give them—one too that they neec never know of; and to him, shat tered in reputation, mind, and body, it might be salvation." He took her head between hi hands, and kissed it, and said: "I sbjaU.be done.

"I am too decayed a wretch to nake professions; I recollect my iwn career too well. But from he day on which I made my first tep downward, in dealing falsely jy you, I have gone down with ; certain, steady, doomed pro- ;ression. That I say," The Chemist entreated Milly, by a gesture, to come nearer to him; nnd, as he listened, looked in her face, as if to find in it the clew to what he heard. "I speak," the other went on, 'like a man taken from the grave. [ should have made my own grave, ast night, had it not been for this jlessed hand." "Oh, dear," sobbed Milly, under iier breath. "I could not have put myself in your way, last night, even for bread. But, today, my recollection of what has been between us is so strongly stirred, and is presented to me, I don't know how, so vividly, that I have dared to come at her suggestion, and to take your bounty, and to thank you for it* and to beg you, Redlaw, in your dying hour, to be as merciful to me in your thought as you are In, your deeds." He turned toward the door, and stopped a moment on his way forth. "I hope my son may interest you for his mother's sake. I hope he may deserve to do so. Unless my life should be preserved a long time, and I should know that I have not misused your aid, I shall never look upon him more." Going out, he raised his eyes to 'Redlaw, for the first time. Redlaw, whose steadfast gaze was fixed upon him, dreamily held out his hand. He returned and touched it T-little more—with both his own— and bending down bis head, went slowly out. : <T9 Be Concluded) Texan Defends Party's Right to Bar Negro Washington, Dec. 27 —(/P)— Attorney General Gerald C. Mann of Texas told the Supreme Court today democrats in that state had a right to limit the party's membership to white, persons and thereby exclude Negroes from voting at a party primary at which federal officers are nominated. Mann made the contention in a brief filed .in the case of Lonnie E. Smith, Houston Negro excluded from voting in a 1940 primary by the election judges of the 48th precinct of Harris county, Texas. Smith's attorneys contended the Supreme Court held in a Louisiana case in 1941 that in a state where election at the primary is the equivalent of final election the right to vote in the primary stems from the federal constitution and not from the party. Replying to Smith's assertion a political party in Texas cannot determine who shall be members, Mann declared "to say that any group of citizens cannot lawfully assemble and organize a political party for the purpose "of nominating candidates for office would deprive them of their rights under the first amendment to the constituion and the Texas bill of rights. Mann argued any group in Texas has the right to organize a political party. For example, he said, if the state's 540,000 adult Negroes chose to form a party and exclude all persons except Negroes from membership, there is nothing to interfere. ilions. Roy. searched out, an idle electricity generator, got.it. working, hooked up his recorder, and hastily made ready to broadcast. Next morning the hot fighting was up ahead, a considerable distance from the. generator feeding Roy's recorder. He asked .someone if it would be possible to , tie into a current farther up-forward and was told he could get power at a command post which could be located by following- a wire recently set off into the jungle, guided'only by the slender strand of wire. Roy grabbed his equipment and strung to it. "I followed, the thing for some distance," he said, "jumping over fallen dead trees and fallen deac Japs, cutting thick underbrush and wading through swamp. After awhile the wire hit the ground anc kept going along a little trail. I kept following it some more. After a few yards of this, a marine's head pops out from behind a log and calls, "Hey, you! Where are you going?" ; "I'm looking for the command post. Know where it .is?" "Yes . . . This is it." "I understand," Roy explained, that I can get a 110 volt, CO cycle A. C. current here." . "Oh." "Do you have it?" "No," said the marine, "but, I'll tell you, mate, if you go up the trail another 40 yards from where you're standing and ask those guys up there.— they might be able to jive it to you/ Labor Strike Cuts Holiday Short for FDR' By DOUGLAS B.
