Meet.. Hear bias ERRY rough th« Radio THON Girl Who Quit Movies Making Religious Film By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD Wl—Colleen Townsend, who quit the movies for a life in religion, is back before the cameras. .But this time she's appearing in a film sponsored by Evangelist Billy Graham. Some cynical citizens of Holly wood scoffed when Colleen announced three years ago that she was giving up her promising ca recr at 20th Century-Fox. Thc unbelievers said il was merely a publicity stunt when she said she* sought another career of helping others to find God. But thc succeeding years have proved her sincerity. , She married Louis Evans, Jr., the son of her pastor at the First Presbyterian church of Hollywood. She has kept house for her husband while he has attended seminary at San Anselmo, Calif. In the last two summers, the pair has worked at youth camps in Europe. "This summer, Louis went to Africa on a trip with his father and other churchmen to visit missions there," she remarked. "Unfortunately, the wives aren't asked to go, along. So I am staying home with Louis' mother. It was nice that this picture came along to keep me busy." The picture is called "Oiltown," and it is the second to be produced by Billy Graham Evangelistic Films, Inc. The first was called "Mr, Texas" and it was termed "the world's first Christian western." Thc new film is about a rugged oil tycoon and his daughter. They become Christians after attending one of Billy Graham's meetings. "It's a very nice story that shows how a successful man can still be unhappy until he finds God," she remarked." "I think a picture like this can do a lot of good." I asked Colleen if she missed Ihe movie starlet routine. "Good heavens, no," she smiled. "The main thing I liked about Demos, GOP Vision Win in California By MORRIE LANDSBERG SACRAMENTO, Calif. 1*1 — Call fornia Republicans and Democrats today promised unified fronts In their efforts to carry the state for their national tickets in November. E^ch sent delegations to Chicago which voted for losing candidates— the Republicans for favorite son Gov. Earl Warren;, thc Democrats lor Sen. Estes Kcfauver of Ten nessee. The Republicans got their harmony cue from Sen. Richard Nixon, 3!)-year old nominee for vice president, at a week-end convention. Nixon scoffed at the Democrats for saying the Dwight Eisenhower- Sen. Robert Taft split won't heal. "I know we will be united next November," was his answer. "We will be united and we will win." ' Warren, the vice presidential candidate four years ago, and Sen. William F. Knowland pledged California Republican support to the Eisenhower-Nixon team. Atty. Gen. Edmund G. Brown, ranking Democratic officeholder in California, told his party's delegates that the Republicans "are fighting the Democratic party with Ihe dollars which a succession of Democratic administrations have made it possible for them to accumulate." Brown declared a Democratic victory was assured by the nomination of Adlai'Stevenson and Sen. John Sparkman of Alabama. At the Independent Progressive party meeting, Mrs. Vincent Hallinan, wife of the jailed IPP presidential candidate, called the Democratic ticket a "spit in the face of labor." Hallinan is serving a federal prison sentence for contempt of court. 15J Ox Can RIO GRANDE EARLY JUNE PEAS 10c CHILDS RAZOR BLADES 3 For 25C TUFFY DOG FOOD 3 ior 25c JELLO L29c DARCO MEAL 10il».69c CHARMIN TOILET TISSUE 4 For 39C a part of last week in Hot Springs.

Utah to Hold Primary Election By RAY CARPENTER SALT LAKE.CITY Ml — Utah's Democrats and Republicans began lining up behind their champions today for a no-holds-barred battle to decide candidates for the U. S. Senate in the Sept. 9 primary election. The two parties, at state conventions over the week end ' named so me well-known political gladia- tcrs to carry their banners into the Senate fray and chose nominees for lesser offices. Incumbent Republican Sen. Arthur y. Watklns' seat is at stake. Watkins. seeking re-election, will be opposed by Marriner Eccles, former chairman of the Federal Reserve Board. In the Democratic primary, Rep. Walter K. Granger and ex-Oov. Herbert B. May will battle it out for the right to campaign for the S« nate in the November elections. The Democrats ended their con- vtntlon Saturday on a note of harmony after requiring their candidates to sign a "loyalty pledge." Rep. Granger's First Congressional District seat will be fought over by Republicans George W. Staples and Douglas R. Stringfel- lew, and Democrats Goerge T. Frost, mayor of Ogden. and Ernest R McKay.

Instead of talking about Lrkansas issues McMath attacKs lohn McClellan because he is am- litlous to run for the senate major address at Helena tonight. Tomorrow night McMath will even move into rival Francis Cherry^s home town o£ Jonesboro. Cherry carried all three of these counties — St. Francis, Phillips and Craighead — in the Democratic •preferential primary last week. His appearance at the REA get- 'together today gave the governor an opportunity to fire away on one o£ his favorite targets — the private power companies he says are going all out to defeat him.

He said a report that he didn't avor Catholic nuns etaching in Arkansas schools — even parochial — was "just another rumor started by the most vicious political nachinc in Arkansas' history—that headed by Sid McMath' and Homer Adkins." Cherry is opposing McMath • for a third term; former Gov. Adkins, close McMath advisor and recently-resigned head -of the Employment Security Division, has drawn perhaps as,much fire from Iherry as the governor himself. Cherry went on to say that the McMath-Adkins forces had spread the rumor "in other parts of the slate that I am a Catholic and therefore oughtj not to be elected governor." A Presbyterian, Cherry said that nuns at a convent and hospital in his home city of Jonesboro had voted for the firs\ time at the Democratic preferenital primary on July 29—and that all had voted for him. McMath and Adkins are Methodists. A listener at the three-division talkathon which dherry held yesterday at Harrison, Siloam Springs and Ft. Smith said he had heard that the jurist opposed teaching by schools if they arc conducted under the law?" Cherry replied with his accusation of "rumormongering" on the part of McMath and Adkins. Frequently Cherry repeated his warnings not to be "misled" by rumors he said McMath and Acikiiib were inspiring He' accused the opposition of a "smear campaign" and added: Lewis, president of lilt 1 Mine Workers Union, wrote Joseph E. Moody, president of the Southern Coal Producers Association, that his present work contract will expire Sept. .'50. That's 60 days from the dale on Lewis' letter.

Since the office is a man's workday home, it should have all the acilities of a well-appointed home nd social club—u bur, a library, ome card tables and pinball ma bines, and a few comfortable :ouches. I don't know whether Dr. Jordan has made any research into •hat makes the tired businessman tired. But I have. My Theory, based on long ob- ervation, is that the average character in the office zoo, be he boss or -hired haod, by the llmlta- ions of the human animal actually can work hard only five hours In Us eight-hour day. The other three lours he spends pretending to be >usy — rustling papers, walking jack and forth to the water cooler, fidgeting at his desk. It is these three hours of acting -hat cause so much tension and send the' ; businessman homo so tired he is even ready to' talk back to his wife. A three * hour daily stint on the stage is an or deal even for a professional actor. What kind of a strain must U be then for the millions ot amateurs in American offices? The real way to cure the tirec businessman is to take this burden of pretense oft his back. Some body ought to set up an experimental office in which everybody bits the job hard from 8:30 until noon, and from 2 p.m., until 9 p. m.
