Garson Kanin, Wonder-Boy Director, Is Filmdom's No. 1 onely Heart Bill Porter brings you news Irom the film capital while Paul Harrison vacations. 1M BILL POUTER NEA Service .Sfaff Correspondent I1OLYWOOD — Among the many young eligiblcs in and about the studios, we find one who actually vvnnts lo Ret 'married and he hasn't jjot a girl. So, lonely hearts, give a listen! He's Carson Kanin, a .successful young movie director of good character and winninR personality, who can be reached almost any time at IIKO studios. Kanin ia the 26-year- old wonder-boy who made .such hits as "A Man lo Remember," "The Great Man Votes" and "Bachelor Mother." The whole thing came up when Kanin read H gossip reporter's discovery thai the allraclivc girl whom he ha.s been seen with frequently is really only hi.s sisler. "1 have found that it is almost essential for a guy to be married if he intends to enjoy life in Hollywood." Kanin said. "There is almost no night life in Hollywood, because most of the movie people arc 'married and stay home or visit (heir other married friends in the evenings. In New York or almost any other (own in the country there are plenty of places to Ro evenings to have fun. "Also, it's hard to find a girl out here who isn't trying to gel into the movies. So it follows- !)ial you h.-ive to be careful whom you have .dates with because if the girl should happen to bo cast in a picture you're directing talk starts that you're paving the way for her. Couldn't Afford to Oc( Married "As il is," he continued, "wbcn-cvcr KO to a party at- married friends' homc.s I feel like a fifth wheel. Before I came to Hollywood I was always so busy that I never took time to think about the girls. Besides I could never afford. to get married. Now, I can afford it, though, and I do want to got married, r find as time goes on and I get older l''nv willing to settle for a lot less than I would a few years ago. I'm not so particular as I was. I felt I oughl to warn Kanin about the story of this nature Paul Harrison • HIGHLIGHTS FROM LATEST BOOKS used about Claire Trevor, the girl who said she wanted lo he married. She was showered with proposals from all over the country. "That's .swell." he replied. "More power la you." Kanin feel:; that his last two years in Hollywood would have been happier had he been married. He figures he would have spent less time thinking about matrimony and would have devoted more lo his work. "Maybe I ought to give you some of my qualifications for marriage," he continued. "I've got a good job with excellent prospects. 1 can support a wife well on what I'm making. My best friends consider me a very ugly- looking man, so the girl wouldn't have to worry about any other girl trying to steal my affections. "I only require two hours in the morning to get ready to go. to the studio. All the rest of her time would be her own. I have no interests or hobbies except my work, and I'm willing to fall in with her ideas of fun and diversion. 1 won't mention my faults." Line Forms On Ihe Might And so. girls, the line forms on the right. Just to assure you that Kanin has been in good hands tip tintif now. I'll tell you that he ha.s been living in Hollywood with his mother and sister for the past two years and has been kept so busy turning out some of RKO's best pictures that he hasn't had time to yo astray. He also lias a sen.sc of hu'uror. When he first started work on "Bachelor Mother" Norman Krasna, who wrote the sceen play came into his office and told Kanin how glad he was to be working with you. too, Norman," Kanin replied, "because you're the only writer on the lot who has less hair than I have." Tliat started a discussion and they called in both their secretaries to judge which had mo-st hair. Each secretary was loyal to her boss. That night when Kanin arrived at Krasna's house for dinner he brought a set of vibrators for gowing h;ii, and then Margo Slevcnson arrived with six- bottles of hair tonic. Harpo Marx showed up with a shaving mirror with a toupee painted on it so tluit when you looked in it just right you appear to have a full head of hair.

Elspoth Huxley cleflly balances tribal laws, customs and practices again.st white man's rules. Tribal justice was inflexible, decreed, by a council of ciders. When Muthcngi killed, hi.s clan was willinK lo pay the blond price. Bui the white man ruled otherwise, as this following excerpt .shows. Main, MuthenKi's brother, was wounded in the fight, and willingly assumes blame for Ihe killing. The interporter looked at Malu and i said: j "Judgement against you. you killed. Men are thcm.selvex killed because their anger speaks with swords. They are to be strangled by this .slrajigcr until dead. You lucky. y,,u will nut be dead because the sword of Karue's son hit above your shoulder. You will .slay i;; Tc!u for slv seasons to belong ti the slranncr. you now his." Matu said nothing, for the words did not seem to make sense , . Mul-1 hengi, however, asked. "But why is 1 Main lo stay here in Tetu'.' The' affair of the young man's di-aih is between Karuc and my failier Waseru. Wlml has the .stranger to do with it? "That is ibe xlrimgci-'x lau-. Mutn killed, he evil man. Therefore he slays wilh stranger." "Does stranger give him to Karuc 1 .'" Mulhcngi persisted. "No. he stays here." . . . "Then what docs Karue receive in compensation for his son, who is dead." "He not receive iuiylJiijiu." "That I cannot understand!" Mul- hcngi exclaimed. "If a man loses his I son. or a child hi.s father, must jml his family he given compensation for 1 their loss'.' Hrnv else can justice he' done','" , 'Stranger's justice different,' the interpreter said. "Matu must say here." ; "Then UK- stranger gets .something lor Karue's loss, and Karuc'.s clan «c-ts nothing al all," Mulhengi sai.l. "This seems lo me a very pc-euli.ir law, and one with no justice in it «l all.

Various Demosthenes abruptly vanished, taking their American flags and folding speakers' stands along with them. Not through any legal pressure, 'mind you, for Ihe police have not curbed Ihe full freedom of speech in the Hyde Park of New York. Anyone, provided that lie fortifies his rostrum-with an American flag, may orate there to hi.s heart's content, crilici/.ing anybody anywhere without hindrance. But lliu mentors of the class struggle and foreign policy have become reticent suddenly and not only have the orators Ihinnde out, but the crow*d.s of listeners have too. The biggest feature a I Columbus Circle just now is an amiable amateur comedian named Porkcroiw Charlie who gives ludicrous spiels, then passes the hut. He makes a living out of il.

For the past several monlhs Our Fiorello has been doing his civic duties in a summer City Hall on Long Island near the ealc.-.v of l)u- World's Fair. He did not see his new lodgings until the day he was scheduled to move there. But when he did, he was stiid to have turned to a newspaperman and remarked .something about an architectural eyesore. Nor, the. story goes, did he find much in Ihe. interior to please him. Bui he made no complaints aloud to his subordinates or lo ihe folk who bilk-led hi'm there.
