May Jl. Like Constantinople and Paris, Holly wood has become one of the .most cosmopolitan towns on the globe. All nationalities meet In Constan tinopie ror trade, in Paris tor a food time, but In Hollywood they meet at the central casting offices lor a chance to get a Job In the talkies. , A survey Just completed by Fred Datig, casting; director at the Para mount studios, was undertaken to determine how many actors speak ing: foreign languages were avail able tor pictures. The survey shows that eat of 3791 actors, ranging from stars to "bit" players, and vented a serious fire at a film studio in Hollywood, was Kentucky Boy, alredale dog owned -by Robert Byrne of Los Angeles. He will receive a gold medal Judges of the animal hero con test, conducted throughout the state for the last six weeks selected Prlive, owned by M. B. Heintz of Pinole, as the second most heroic, because he is credited with sounding a fire alarm when residents of the whole town were asleep after a -blaze had broken out in the Pinole opera house. Prince will receive a silver medal engraved with his name. Caesar, pet police dog of Phillip Patterson, swimming coach of a San Francisco hotel plunge, was Judged as the thirdmost heroic iturjy employed in picture animal In the 'tatPflttrnn -. wora, mere are iusi wno can attacked by a, bandit recentl y when ne was drivlngnls automobile into 5 peak another ' language besides English.

', Now that foreign versions are not so hot from the produc tion viewpoint,' these players find atfiau role as "types" or speak a w lines of their native language n a brief scene. . Studio casting directors list these foreigners In their files so that when a scene aT S, calls for Scandinavian or be filled without delay. : ' ' f"m h Mt7 ARB EMPLOYED w ' Tt th. ZrJf ,1 .v.?'

The bandit, however, es - directors have on their lists JIT actors and actresses regularly er ployed in pictures, who speak French, 182 men and 135 women. The Spanish group Is second largest In size, with 166 men and 146 women or a total of 302. The Ger man group is third and the Italian fourth. There are 186 actors who peak German and 72 actresses, or 25$ in all. Of the GO who represent the Italian group, 88 are men. In Los Angeles, of which Holly' wood is a part, there Is a large colony of Russians and there are other much larger colonies of Chines and Japanese. Yet only It Russians are listed In the foreign group among the stars and bit players regularly employed on the screen, only six Japanese and five Chinese. For stories which MTV viuiicict ui aiui icn TviJiwsi Include larira crowds of Russians danger to himself. and Orientals, the studio casting IIe ,8 credited with "sensing" a director sends out a call to some flr when veral blocks away, and merchant nrominent in the foreiirn h tore way from his master and colony and In a surprisingly brief bounded to the scene Just in time time the merchant sends out the requisite number and kind of types.

These, again, are nationalities represented by actors regularly em ployed, the standbys. The list reads like a directory of all nations. In many cases the foreign play-era are employed for other reasons than their ability as linguists. Often they find "bit" roles because they are good physical types. Among the stars there are plenty who speak foreign languages. Greta Garbo's native tongue Is Swedish, Marlene Dietrich's is German. . Ann May Wong learned English and Chinese at the same time. Paul Lukaa and Bula Lugosl peak Hungarian and Maurice Chevalier speaks Parisian French. (OopTrirtt, 133. tm lb TXIBUNE.) BLUE PIGS BORN 8ILVERTON, , Ore. When two blue pigs were born in a litter of 10 on the Hugo Cramer farm here, someone suggested their unusual color was due to the present prices for pork. Three dog heroes of California,? spread the alarm, which Is said to have resulted in the prevention of serious loss of life anil property damags which probably would have amounted, to millions of dollars. Kentucky Boy also Is credited with saving the life of his master. In an account of this Incident Byrne said: "Some time aco I was raking the yard when the animal was asleep in the house. I heard him suddenly rush from the room where he was sleeping and out the back door to where I was standing. His vigorous barking and strange actions caused me to try to silence him and 1 ran towards him. Just then part of a huge tree in the yard rtll with a thundering crash upon the spot where I had heeir standing. The animal most" likely had seen the heavy branch about to drop and sensed thenanger." 'TROUBLE SHOOTKR' Various other Institutions in Los Angeles have showered honors on Kentucky Boy for his deeds of bravery. The Pinole dog, while almost outranking the Los Angeles animal in point of Intelligence and devo tion, Is said to have demonstrated an unusual faculty for detecting trouble. The animal Is known by all residents of the town, who give him full credit for averting a disastrous fire, and one which might have swept over the whole city had It been allowed to spread. The fire broke out in the Pinole oper house before dawn and spread rapidly. The dog saw the flames and ran barking through the deserted streets. He attracted the attention of Mrs. Alice Vermouth, who gave the alarm. The fire destroyed the opera house and two adjoining structures before it was extinguished by the flre-flght-Ing forces of Pinole and near-by communities, i . BRAVE AND INTELLIGENT Edith Latham, president of th Latham foundation, today highly commended the animals for their "extraordinary display of devotion bravery and Intelligence." "There were many remarkable Instances of animal heroism and that without doubt the Judgr were" compelled to base their selection upon the type of devotion, heroism and Intelligence Involved, in ad dltlon to the meritorious deed for which the animal was credited she said. "The animal hero contest served to focus public attention upon anl mals of California and to create greater understanding of the rluhts and feelings of our four-footed friends. It will at least inculcate in the minds of people an apprecia tion for theelr services, and thereby cause the generajlon of a more humane attitude on the part of millions of people' Similar contests for hero animals were conducted In various states In conjunction with the Latham foun dation. BITES PLANNED FOR COMPOSER rxt San Francisco. TheXdog, awaiting his master's return home, was pacing ud and down the sidewalk In front of the house when the bandit appeared .with drawn gun. Just as Patterson entered the garage the bandit leaped to the runlng board and put a gun against the coach's rib's. Caesar lost no time in going to the rescue and leaped furiously to the attack. He seized the bandit by the lee. The thug, in an effort to defend caped. Caesar will receive a bronze medal for this act of heroism and It will be engraved with his name and tl.at of his -master's, Judges considering the hero ani mal were confronted with many in stances of animal heroism and they based their findings not alone on the service rendered by the animal, but also upon hte character of the Intelligence and devotion displayed, credited with performing several extraordinary deeds, but upon investigation the type of perform ance was not of such an outstand ing nature as that of the three animals selected.
