PAGE SIX HOPE STAR, HOPE/ARKANSAS Bruce Catton Says: Simmer Welles, U. S. Delegation to Panama Peace Conference, Is Personality Puzzle By RKUCE CATTON NEA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON—Sunnier Welles, the tall and dignified under-secretary of state who is going to represent the United States at the peace-and-neutrality conference in Pana'nfii. is one of the leading enigmas of official Washington. Perhaps one reason is the fact that - '"'" '"" ""' he looks and act,-.- more like u big >' the department.

Any man worth his military salt tells you that htc attacker on either site is going to lose at least four men to the defender's one. More likely, if the attempt is extremely determined, the losses will be ten to [ one. Tho Germans are supposed to have- lost 600.000 men trying to take Verdun in the World War. Consider the shick of anguish at home when the and wounded started Some military psycho! pri- rrnati wing of the State Department. •Again, he is blamed by some for retaining a strong singe of the old-time "dollar diplomat" attitude toward Latin-American nations; by others, he is praised for whole-fouled devotion to the New Deal's good neighbor policy. He started out a career man in l; ~ ; was a hot potato—he was made ambas- n \ fador to Cuba just when the Machado j regime was tottering to its fall.

Psychological If the attacking force should be the French army aided by the British, the victors would still find themselves on the west bank of the Rhine, barred from the heart of Germany by the secondary defenses behind the Rhine between Manheim and Eessen, and probably too exhausted to exploit their initial victory. As a matter of fact, military men who have seen one side or the other of the western front recently, speculate that the primary vajue of breaking through the w a ll on cither side would be more psychological than real. It would prove to the victorious army and the people back home— and to the vanquished too—that a A'uiginot or a Siegrfied line is not impregnable. That should instill greater will to win. But consdier the assult that fail Military men can conceive of no mere tragic figure than the general who had ost 500,000 men—and failed to win his battl. The effect on the morale of the people on the home front would be almost disastrous. These are the>reasons why you hear so much specula'ion ths-t the Franco- British alliance n-ay seek another way around before they teally get going. That's why military men arc wondering about little Belgium and the Netherlands again, and Switzerland. Outflanking the enemy is an old regime—a policy for which he has been severely criticized—and was generally credited with having brought Col. Fulgcncio Batista to power. Welles Escapes Latin a . Resentment Yet if his course in Cuba might have been expected to arouse resentment against him among Latin-American statesmen, his subsequent career has gone just the other way. He has had a leading part in the campaign to restore Latin-AYncrican confidence in the United States. As delegate to the Buenos Aires conference of 1036, and since then as un- der-secrctary of stale, he has been a foremost exponent of the good neighbor policy. It probably is no exaggeration to sa Quoted as saying "1 feel happier now than 1 have all my life," Margaret Cowan, 77-year-old retired nurse, is pictured after her arrest, in Allentown, Pa. Police say she admitted killing her sister, Mrs. Louella Saege-r, to "put her out of her misery". • The slain woman vwis a patient in the Allentown State Hospital, where the shooting occurred. • HARRISON IN HOLLYWOOD Producers Blue-Pcncil Film Budgets as War Cuts Off Large Movie Market HGLLYWOG-D — The first bomb loosed by a European war plane jarred the moie producer's feet from his desk and knocked the long ash from his cigar. He leaned forward and jabbed a buzzer button. A thin, prematurely gray young man popped in from a side door. "George." snapped the producer, "I i cation from whatevei got a big war on my hands.

Here Are Two Answers MIAMI, Fln.~(rtV-The question: "Whnt is n lobster'.'" has caused a furore in the Florida fish shipping industry. The federal trade commission has ruled the term "lobster" may be used only in connection with the genus Homnrus, found along the Atlantic coast north of North Carolina. A Mia'm'i fish shipper, M. Swart/., wns ordered to cease distributing "sea crayfish" in interstate commerce as "real lobster meat of the genus Homarus, when such is not the fact." Swjirlz said enforcement of the commission's order would inflict irreparable damage on the Florida industry, which, he estimated, employs 1,000 |>er- sons and docs a $750.000 business annually. n answer to the commission's warning, Swarl/.'s .company said: "We do not and cannot concede that (he A'merican people merely associate lobster wilh that found along the North American coast, but in truth and fact a large number of American people also associate the word 'lobster' with the prociuct found in Southern Waters." and a jamming together of star nnmcs. The salaries of stars—and I mean the vapid. doll-liRe cutics and pretty boy.i —will go down with a bang. "More and more directors will be given producer authority—a combination that already is proving to he the only sensible way. And from all the high places there will be an exodvis of highly-paid nit-wit.s and do-nothings who have been parasites on this industry all during its'prosperity. Pensioned relatives will be weeded out quietly. Producers and directors with poor records will follow Vm'. A lot of high- salaried writers—whose names are supposed to mean something, but who can't write for the screen—will find themselves having to earn a living from now on. • "So in the long ,run, this war may bo a good thing for Hollywood.

During the European crisis last year, brass hats will be able markets began to close down anyway. Hitlerland and Italy ousted American films and most other countries imposed new quota restrictions on Hollywood, fcven 'nrorc frightening was a further slump in box office receipts in this . country. Bewildered executives began to talk about closing down studios. For a few weeks almost no new top-budget pictures were started. But .suddenly, American patrons began raising Cain about having to sit through two class B pictures on one program. Such protests proved that the fans still were interested, so producers regained some of their confidence and went to work ajgain.
