Harrison in Hollywood •r PAUL MAMltOti, NEA Sirvte* Corfespondtnt Communiques Off the Celluloid Center HOLLYWOOD Action: Lights * . camera®On the waterfront set on Warners' Stage 2, the famed veteran, Walter. Huston, moistens his lips and waits a little nervously for the beginning of a scene for "Always in My Heart." In the background, Borrah Minnevitch and his harmonica bandsmen arc supposed to be working on the wharf. Director Jo Graham asks Huston if he's ready, and the actor replies: "1 hope so, Jo, I've never done anything like this in a picture." So the camera begin to roll and Huston starts to whistle the title tune. Minnevitch and his gang stop their work and begin to close in on the star. Harmonicas appear from pockets and soft harmony accompanies the whistling. Huston looks as surprised as if he'd actually believed they were a bunch of stevedores. Then he grins and breaks into the lyrics of the song with a mellow baritone. It's swell. When it's over, the set is silent. Somebody finally asks, "Where did you learn to sing like that, Walter?" And Huston says, "Well I made a living for 12 years in vaudeville with my voice, but this is the first time I've been allowed to sing in a picture." . . Love In Gloom As one of the lighter items of monkey-business in, "Arsenic and Old Lace," Priscilla Lane and Gary Grant are playing a catch-and-kiss love scene in a littfc Brooklyn cemetery. Frank Capra, who's really having fun directing this one, has the action precisely mapped. Miss Lane dodges behind headstones and the chase ends when Grant catches her in front of an especially large and clearly .lettered stone. They kiss,' then laugh, but in the midst of the second clinch the actor whoops and points to the headstone. It seems to mark the last resting place o£ one 'Archibald Leach' and that happens to bo Gary Grant's real name. Blytheville Wins Title Chicks Take Second Straight Championship LITTLE ROCK—Blyth'eville's Chicks champions of the Arkansas High School Conference for the second straight year with seven victories, one defeat and one tie, also provided the leading scorer. Sonny Lloyd, an almost unanimous choice for All-State honors, made 87 points. He registered 14 touchdowns and three extra points. Jack Bodie of Pine Bluff was runner-up with 58 points'while Harry Ledbetter of Fordyce scored 56 for third place. Pine Bluff, which won the only victory over Blytheville, finished in second position ' in .the race with six wins, one loss and two ties. North Little Rock's Wildcats, the early pacesetters defeated the Little Rock Tigers on Thanksgiving to take third place. In the all-state and conference selections Jimmy Simms, Hope quarterback, and McCullough, end received honorable mention. On some selections the two Hope standouts made the third teams. In the conference standings the Bobcats are in a three-way tie with Forrest City, who played only 3 games, and Fort Smith for 10 place. Team Blytheville Pine Bluff G.W.L.T. Pet. Pts.

Such is the claim of three rival national organibations of Federal em- ployes, the National Federation of Federal Employes, the American Federation of Government Employes and the United ;Federal Workers of Amer- They have many differing planks, in their platforms, but all agree on three things: A pledge in their constitutions that they will not tolerate strikes against the government. A desire for extra pay for overtime and night work. A minimum wage of $1500 a year. The government is the biggest employer of labor in the country. In the executive branches, there are 1,391,687 workers, 185,182 being right here in the capital. A survey made in 1937 by the Civil Service Commission showed that 92 per cent of all government employes outside the postal service received less than $3000 a year; 71 per cent got less than 52000;, 44 per cent made less than $1500, and 11 per cent less than $1000. To remedy this, Congressman John E. Sheridan of Philadelphia introduced a bill which provides that every annual compensation of less than J1200 shall be increased to $1500; compensation of more than $1200 and less than ?3200 shall be increased |300, except that $3000 employes shall get $200 more and the $3100 employes shall get $100 more. Hourly wage rates would be increased 10 cents an hour. Only One Appeal Congressman Sheridan said millions of workers in private industry through their unions secure increased wages, but organized government workers do not have the same avenue of collective bargaining. They can only come to congress and ask for relief. He said a government survey in 1939 showed that the cost of living at maintenance OUR WAY By J. R.

This means that 44 per cent of the government employes receive less than necessary to support a manual worker's family. One striking fact is the small number of government employes- who are enrolled in unions. According to their own figures, there are 75,000 in the National Federation of Federal Em- ployes, 40,000 in the American Federation of Government Employes and 27,000 in the United Federal Workers of America. That adds up to only .about 10 per cent of government employes. The American Federation of Government Employes is affiliated with the American Federation of Labor, and the United Federal Workers are affiliated with C. I. O. The latter has announced it intends to drive toward enrolling 1,000,000 members. Michael Widman, assistant director of C. I. O. organization, directed the campaign among employes of the Ford Motor Company successfully, and has been assigned this new job. The C. I. O. affiliate was founded in 1937, and has 203 locals of which 30 are in the District of Columbia. Like all C.', I. O. unions, it does not go by crafts but takes in all employes. Wants Moving Costs The oldest organization is the National Federation of Federal Workers, founded in 1917. Formerly affiliated N. F. F. W. has 722 locals, 13 being with A. F. o£ L., it withdrew in 1931. in Washington. In addition to the planks common to all three organizations, it demands a shorter work week and allowance for transportation costs if employes are transferred from one city to another. The American Federation of Government Employes was founded in 1932. It has 600 locals, 77 in Washington. Among its planks are demands for a bonus of $240 a year to offset the present increased cost of living, a five day week, and establishment of a board of appeals to hear complaints of employes about decisions of the Civil Service Commission. The right of government employee to organize in unions was conferred upon them.by an act of congress, ap- Mind Your Manners Test your knowledge of correct social usage by answering the 7ol- lowing questions, then checking against the authoritative answers below: 1.

Should a person call a friend on the telephone when he knows he is at dinner? 4. Should the person who puts in a long-distance call be the first to end the conversation? 5.

Accustomed as they are to the movies' whims, workmen can't help feel- Ing that this project is a little silly. Smoky Joe Bert Lahr, Dorothy Lovctt nnd a couple of others in "Sing Your Worries Away" are holding an excited pow-wow in a downstairs hallway of a theatrical boarding house. A couple of jugglers are tossing Indian clubs that flip past LaTir's head as he talks. In a doorway stands a fire-eater trying to cauterize his own tonsils. In the living room, a soubrette warbles a corny ditty. All this is amusing, but it also becomes distressing to watch as take after take is spoiled. I'm worried about how much fire a fire-eater can eat, because for about an hour ho had been gobbling blazing fumes. When the scene finally is okayed, he hastily begins going through his pockets— for some ointment for internal blisters? No, a cigaret. Eight jets of twins are included in Colombia's largest family of 32 boys and girls.
