I didn't go to the North Pole, exactly, but I did see and hear about lots of things you may see under your Christmas tree. Here is what Santa Claus tells me about toys: It's America all the way in toyland this season. There's a patriotic parade of red, white and blue colors, which boys and girls probably will like because they're bright. Little machine guns and soldier and sailor toys account for only 2 per cent of all the 100,000 types of toys in the U. S. for this Christmas. Air and. naval warfare games join popular old-timers. There are a, sailor and a soldier doll that whistle if the supply doesn't give out (as it may, one of Santa's helpers said). There is a doll with a heartbeat that lasts four days after you wind her up. You can squeeze the leg of another doll and she'll cry (unless the cries' supply runs short). And there's the "magic skin" doll again Press Pages of Government Editors Cull Hand-Outs From Different Agencies By JACK STINNETT WASHINGTON — Just how many thousands of pages of "hand-outs" pour from government press relations agencies weekly is anybody's guess. The news men, for the most part, thumb through these reams of dullness, cull them down to the few essentials and pass them on. Generally, it's pretty tedious, routine work because government press agents discovered a long time ago Uiat they can't take journalistic liberties with bosses whose jobs hang on public opinion or at least the opinion of their immediate superiors who in turn, must.take their raps from the people who cast the votes. Occasionally, however, some subject comes along that gives the government writer his golden opportunity and it is one such that I wish to record here—a .lyrical journalistic gem (no pun) about "diamonds for defense" that came'out of Nelson Rockefeller's office for inter-American iffairs. In the sub-heading, the Roc- cefeller boys tipped their hand with the information that "South America's Diamond Bullets Aid Democracy's Arsenal." For there on, it was touch-and-go. The release started: "Diamonds—precious jeweled facets of imprisoned sun ight. Pretty beaubles which have inspired prince and pauper, king and commoner, beguiling to lovers and coveted by thieves, now lake an important place next to battleships, tanks and factories in the gigantic nilitary and industrial effort to forge the weapons of defense for the Amcr- cas. Prismatic facets with the latent •aw power of a smoldering volcano. Power to create a Niagara of arms n defense of democracy." If you are still along, set a spell and get your breath. That sort of thing goes on for 14 double-spaced pages. It points out that "this amazing jewel . . part of the plasma of earth's creation . . has donned overalls , . . and is fighting the battles of our democratic allies against the aggressive intentions of totalitarian powers aiming to dominate a world economic hegemony by force of arms." That kind of verbiage is enough to stop even the most enthusiastic of the government report thumber- throughers but as isn't always the case in these releases by any means, this one carried a reward for patience. Tucked away among those precious adjectives and over-ripe phrases was some pretty hot stuffabout industrial diamonds. For example, the Dutch and Belian merchants, fleeing their native lands before the Nazi invasion, carried nearly nil their diamonds with them and the Axis powers are so short on industrial diamonds today that they are cutting up gem stones to use in the drills and cutters of war industries. Only a few weeks ago. FBI agents arrested three Japanese merchants and charged them with trying to sneak out of the country with $50,000 worth of industrial diamonds. The Italian government maintains its only existing South Atlantic airline (L. A. T. I,, flying from Brazil to Italy) with a major purpose of transporting this valuable light-weight cargo for use in Axis war machines. The United States imports three- fourths of a ton (3,809,000 carats) of industrial diamonds a year now, about ARKANSAS Morrison in Hollywood §» l»AUt HAKRIION, NEA S*vlc« Cofr«pohd«hf Why Movie Office Boys Like Work MOROUNE HAIR TONIC ION-SKID BOTHE»r«SlOt'25< NOW ....

The small autos boys and girls like so much are miniatures of big station wagons, army trucks, police cars, racers and wreckers. Farm toys are more popular than they've been for years. Model communities come in all sizes. There's a lumber yard, as complete a building kit as I've seen. Almost any hobby at your house will find something newer and belter to fit it—games, tool chests, model- making, handicraft. There are new albums for stamp collectors.

Chancery Court Nov 25, Dec. 2, 9, 1C By RALMt STACK Studio office bo.V, |>!ne!i-lil«!iig for vacationing Paul Harrison HOLLYWOOD - "Be nice to the studio office boys because they may bo your bosses of tomorrow," so goes an old Hollywood saying. But I would rather not believe that's the only reason people around the lot are always plugging for office boys. I recently returned from serving eight months In the Army. Before I left, Dorothy Lamour gave me 8 traveling bag and had a picture made kissing me goodby. Believe me, thai 14 times as many as it did seven or eight years ago. Defense industries would come . to an almost complete stop if the supply of industrial diamonds suddenly was shut off. They are used In the manii- :acture of ships, airplanes, tanks, trucks, guns, bomb-sighte, range-finders, telescopes, submarines and copper wire among other instruments ond machines of war. Industrial diamonds cost about $2.86 a carat, compared to $325 to $650 a carat for top quality gem diamonds. Brazil, a power in the diamond world in the'eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, is booming again as result of the vastly increased world demand. picture certainly put me in good with the fellows at camp. > We're pretty luck office boys.

Susanna Foster called all of the boys out to the stage when she recorded her songs for "Glamour Boy." Susanna is very frank herself and likes other people to bo the same. W arc probably her closest friends simply because wo treat her as one of the gang rather than as a movie actress. Sec the Stars Much of our work brings us in personal contact with the stars. We do a lot of errands for them and soon get to know them very well. Stars »* CIaudettc Colbert, Bing Crosby, Madeleine Carroll and other top names get a great deal of attention, but the other day a secretary in the publicity department received just as much service as any of them. Her name is Ella Boros and for seven years she has been a secretary at Paramount. After refusing several screen tests. Elln accepted a role in "Torpedo Boat" and you would have thought she was Mrs. Roosevelt making a screen debut. Jean Parker gave Ella her star dressing room to use that day. Richard I Arlean gave her a set chair with her name on !t f and others sent flow- era or other gifts. 1 must havev delivered 30 telegrams to her on thr set. Ella doesn't want to give up her job as a secretary, but after the producers saw the picture, they liked her so much she has been given another role in "I'll Be Back in a Flash." Here's a funny thing about it: Ella, a secretary in real life, will have a role of a showgirl, and Alice White, who was n big star several years back playing showgirl roles, will play the part of Up They Go Many of Hollywood's outstanding executives started as office boys. Mervyn Le Roy was once Mr; De Mille's office boy. Director William Wellman started that way also. Only a few years ago, Stanley Rubin was in our department, telling the fellows he wanted to be a writer. Now he has his own office in the writers' building and has quite a few screen credits. Many of our former boys are now in important positions in the production end, the publicity department, the casting offices. Some are cutters, business managers, directors, and others have varied positions. So you see, if we don't get ahead, it's our own fault. In Ararat township, Pennsylvania, schools are closed during the worst winter months. Will the pupils please rise and sing, "Snow, Beautiful Snow." . • An epidemic of mumps has hit Fort Custer. Now we'll see how well our new .army can .take .the bumps. British Moke Ship, wreck Comfortable LONDON-(#)-"Luxury lifeboats" are the latest creation of the British to save lives and avert suffering for seamen torpedoed in the Battle of the Atlantic. Standard lifeboat rations'for a hundred years have been water, biscuit and bully beef. Usually the amount of water was so small the seamen could not get enough to eat the salty beef and dry biscuit. The result was that hundreds of seamen died in the first two years of the war while trying to reach land in under-provisioned boats Here is what the "luxury lifeboats" being supplied the merchant marine carry: Enough water to supply each of 46 men with 8 oz. a day for two weeks; 14 pounds each of peanuts, prunes and raisins; large quantities of chocolate to take the place of biscuits, meat extracts, and malted milk; life- jackets fitted with watertight pockets containing concentrated food and vitamin C; towels, first aid kit, splints, blankets, boat repair outfit, massage oil, bailing dippers, compass, flares, matches and charts.
