FOtJI* Hugh Herbert, on How to Be Funny Developed Nervous Manner to Holt Attention on the Stage By ROBBIN COONS AP Feature Service Writer Hugh Herbert ,born in Binghainton, N. Y., 48 years ago, has been writer, director, serious actor as well as "wo wo' comic. Began acting in stock 35 years ago. First professional work •was as a voice behind a movie screen in an early "talkie" attempt. He's a graduate of Cornell university and B gardener— for diversion. His trade mark—"woo \voo"—originated when he was playing in a movie with a /lock of other comics, all wack in style. To hold his own in the general nultiness. he developed a nervous, irresponsible, timid type of personality made it chirp 'woo woo" on devers occasions. The preview reception pinned the label on him. "You don't have to be crazy to be a comedian but it helps. After reading otters from fans who apparently think I'm as goofy as some of my screen characters. I sometimes wonder if they aren't right. "Simple things are often the funniest, but I feel that the old formula of plastering some fellow with a custard pie has been overworked. People laugh loudest when they see someone else in a fix that they themselves have found embarrassing. "Good comedians have to be good listeners, too. By keeping alert, they can pick up comedy material from tax drivers, waitresses, schoolboys, doormen and others—lines that are far more effective than those the funny men think up. "How'd I get into comedy? I -was scared into it—years ago. I was playing a doctor in a small stock show. HOPE STAR.

Bruce Catton Says: Isolationist Senators Plan Confiscatory Tax on Wai- Profits By BRUCE CATTON NEA Washington Correspondent Washington—Beaten in their fight to retain the arms embargo, isolationist senators are looking ahead to the next session of congress and arc planning to make a detci'mined drive for a stringent war profits taxation bill. As a matter of fact, they would'® ' like to see this bill taken up at once. . But the administration has the votes ' gh as 98 P° r ccnt on top inc °rnes, to get the Senate adjourned. anH tho mclced ' as ls stands now the bill's to get the Senate adjourned, and the matter will have to wait until the next session in January. This bill is the one which was drawn up as a result of the work of the famous Nye munitions committee. It is probably the most startling taxation bill ever seriously considered in Congress. In its upper brackets it is frankly confiscatory. with rates running as On the stage I became so frightened I almost fainted. My knees started knocking together. I was stumbling awkwardly through my lines. The audience roared. The manager promptly christened me a comedian. "I've read over 2.000 books on the psychology of laughter, but I still believe the only way to test a joke is to try it out on someone. It's up to the public to decide what's funny. I'd rather be funny than President. Nothing like a good laugh to clear up a feeling of blue depression. If we all laughed more and worried less, we'd live longer.' 1 WAKE UP YOUR LIVER BILE- Without ClUmel-AiiJ V.u'll ^, Out ,f W i, the Mtrninf Ririn' to Go ,.

QUALITY PIANOS Beasley's Ttxarkiin;i. Ark. HARVEY ODOM l.ucitl KcjdusciiUilivt: tax schedule would—when state income taxes are added in—exact in taxes form a wealthy man more than his entire year's income. Will Divvy up with States The bifi's authors will remedy (hat before the bill comes to the floor by rewording it to make allowances for state income taxes. The significant point about the bill is that when it was introduced last March by Senator Bone of Washington, it bore the names of 50 senators as sponsors—enough to get the bill passed, if all of the sponsors stay in line. Whether they will do so, if the White House actively opposes the measure, is doubtful, since on the list are administration stalwarts like Pepper of Florida, Lee of Oklahoma and Wagner of New York. New Deal Claims House Majority The administration claims a safe majority for embargo repeal in the House, but the fight there is not over. Joe Martin, minority leader, suggests that probably no one really knows just what the House line-up is, since not more than about 100 members have been in Washington since the opening day of the special session. One thing is certain; the administration neglected its spadcwork in the House during the first weeks of the fight, concentrating all its efforts on the Senate, and woke up just recently to the fact that it faced an uphill fight in the other chamber. Meanwhile the isolationists were active on the House side. An informal group of about a score of pro-embargo congressmen took pains to keep in cntact with each state delegation and to perform missionary work whenever possJble. This group insists that retention of the embargo is no worse than a 50-50 bet right now. Nye Is Gloomy Over Future Senator Nye, one of the isolationist leaders, is frankly pessimistic about the country's prospects with the embargo repealed. "First we'll sec that big swarm of airplanes sent overseas," he says. 'Then there will be other goods, plus a steadily increasing pcrssurc for relaxation of our restrictions on loans. "As these shipments increase, there will be more and more submarine war fare—which, I believe, will come closer and closer to our shores. "I wish I could believe that the administration is right in thinking that repeal will discourage Hitler and make him lay down his arms and cry for peace. But somehow I don't see it that way." Strategy Aids President's fight Smart administration strategy nwy give the repeal bill a better chance in the House than it would other wise have. The House will get » bill in which ca.sh and can-y is tied in with repeal of the embargo. Present indications are that the bill will come in under a rule which will prevent it being thrown open for piece-meal amendments. A number of members dislike repeal of the embargo but are decidedly in favor of cash and carry; to got the one they will have to accept the other.

A War for Profit Like a lot of wars, says Charley, the wiir on the whales is fought for gain. Each whale, in normal times, is worth about a thousand dollars. The only hope of a truce, the whale- man declares, paradoxically grows out of another war—Iho new war in Europe. Whaling usually is not profitable during a war. That was true during 19M-18.

He believed that it was impossible to abolish war entirely, and that on some occasions it was inevitable and just.. But he did hope to devise a plan where i nations would live together under law ' just as the people of a single nation live together under law. He was a great peacemaker in that, if his ideas were adopted, there would be fewer wars, and they would be less savage and destructive. He sought a "Congress of Christian Powers," in which disputes could < be settled peaceably through the inter- ! vention, mediation and arbitration of | outsiders. i Just as national law has not eliminated the nightstock, the revolver, the prison cell, an dthe hangman's noose, so Grotius' plans were not completely pacifist. But just as those violent means are used in a law-ruled nation for the sake of upholding an orderly society based on law, so Grotius hoped that establishment of international lasv would set up an orderly international society. Placed Finger On Doubters In his prologue to his book, this wise man wrote: "There are not wanting persons in our own time, and there have also been in former times persons, who have despised what has been done in this province of jurisprudence, so far as to hold that no such existed." Four hundred years later, there are still people who believe of international law that "no such thing exists." As Grotius entered his productive life during the storms of the Thirty Lears' War, so he left it also in another storm. Practically exiled from his native Holland, he took service with the Swedish government. On a voyage, his ship was driven ashore near Danzig. Amid the hardships of the voyage, the od 'man became ill. He died near the very city which was destined to bring on a great war m 1339 because the world had not learned to settle its problems as Grotius taught. NEXT: Czar Nicholas II, man of Peace who led the Russians to war. Statesmen face great problems in tills world of today. Chamberlain niusi Iry to win the war, Roosevelt must try to keep (he United States out of it. and Governor James of Pennsylvania must climb 5G .steps every night, to go to bed. Sally Rand has filed a voluntary bankruptcy petition. It has always been suspected that some day tiie bubble would burst. RAISING A FAMILY When You Furnish, Remember People Are Most Important Things in a Home Should you furnish your home, Mother, entirely for: A. Family ease? B. Beauty? C. Adaptability to family needs and attractiveness? D. A three-ring circus? Nearly every mother and homcmnk- cr is a victim of conflicts about her house. What shall she do? Allow the children to knock the old stuff about and be happy, or refurnish and then shoo them off to the street or attic so Die nice new rooms may repose in spiritual peace? The later course will only give her a worse headache, if she goes in for splendid things that may not he- touched. To chase the family out or get upset. every time n cushion is crushed, is not my idea of bliss. On the other hand, if there is a very .small family, say one boy or girl, with no disposition to romp, she may safely go in for antiques or fine pieces and expect them to last fairly well for another generation. To my mind, "B" is the right answer. Furnishings should bo adapted to the size, needs, dispositions and habits of enjoyed by all. Mrs. Tommy McCorklc gave an interesting contest in spelling and simple quiz, which was won by the hosotss.

When Japan does, probably soon, she will he forced to recognize that she needs much from America, while there is little the United States needs from Japan. Spokesman Suma did point out one recognized truism, that the U. S. must make some ndvmico.s to match those of Japan. He did not list thorn, but enlightened self-interest on the part of the United States, some writers point out. might suggest something along these lines: Rclinquishment of the Japanese er- clu.sion act of 1924. Easing of the tariff and trade barriers (hat contributed to the. economic pinch in Japan that, in part, was the motive for her foray into China. Loans for China betterment, and perhaps even directly to Japanese interests. A primary concession from Japan would be some sort of assurance thaat approrimntely equal rights in China will be restored to all nations—with Japan out of the saddle. • THE PAYOFF" By lliUlBY CUAYSON NEA Service Sporls Editor Most college football players come to school these days well drilled in fundamentals. All-America men now coach high school teams. But occasionally an outstanding performer is developed in college after having had no preparation in high school. Notre Diimc's immortal George Gipp was one of them. He had never been in a game when he joined the Irish fro.sh. The Gippcr was ordered to report when Knutc Rocknc .saw hi'm kicking a ball to a classmate on the campus. Morton Kacr, Southern California's All-America quarterback of some years back, played no football at Red Bluff. Calif.. High School for the very good reason that there were not enough boys for the school to have a team. Kaer was a remarkable hurdler in college and wanted to play football, but timer C. Henderson, then coaching the Trojans, considered him too dumb m a football way to appear in the mickficld his first two yours. K:icr Wasn't So Dumb for Junes It wasn't until Howard Harding Jones arrived that Kaer obtained his opportunity. Head Man Jones had Aubrey Dovinc, the old Iowa signal caller, live with Kaer. A.sked how the great change was brought about, after Kaer had run wild against California and all tho rest. Coach Jones said: "A boy as fast as Kaer has to be pretty dumb to be kept out of my backricld." In these days of subsidization, pros- elyting and intensive scouting, it is refreshing to find a boy like Charley Anasiasio on the Louisiana State team. Aiiastasio catered L. S. U. three years ago. He anklcd into Coach Bernie Moore's office one afternoon and declared he wanted to play football and baseball. A husky youth, he was given a uniftu'm and told to report for football practice. Tiger drill-musters eyed him closely. They liked the way he handled himself. He became n member of the 1937 freshman squad. He bad never played organized football. White Castle, La.. High, from which ho graduated, did not have a team. Annstasio's only football experience had been obtained playing for recreation while n member of the United States Marines. Anastnsio I,. S. U.'.s Cimlurdlii Man Aiiastasio attracted attention as a freshman. He was green, but he ran hard and drove with plenty of power. He ap pea red too inexperienced to win a place on the 1938 varsity but a .siege of injuries forced Moore to use him. Slow in starting, ho showed marked improvement by the end of the season. The smiling, black-headed boy gained polish during training last spring. He learned how to run in a more deceptive manner. He made better use of his change of pace. When fall practice began he turned up as one of the finest ball carriers on the squad. He earned a starting position and has held it. His splendid offensive record speaks for itself. Aiiastasio is 23 years old. His 181 pounds is spread over a well-portioned six-foot frame. He has speed and a deceptive spin. If Tennessee is to be stopped in its parade to the Rose Bowl when the Volunteers tackle Louisiana State in Baton Rouse, Nov. •!. Aiiastasio is expected to play an important part. Charles Anasiasio is L. S. U.'.s Cinderella man of football. 'the family one has. Beauty is mi clastic word, but it means more than anything else, nt- tractice. And attractiveness has more than a trace of good taste. It docs not depend on money, for 1 have seen plain farmhouses, with not one visible feature that could be called artistic or expensive, thai were so sweet and simple one could ctfmp out in them forever and be Called blessed. And money can buy monstrosities. Beauty, to me, means fitness, and Jhat moans utility. Nothing that just fills up for filling's sake is lovely. It must have n place, some attractive color or line in itself and be worthy of respect. The nicest homes are those done in the popuar informal or scmiformal stylo. But still, even will) Uuit, Bob won't wnnt his room done In pink. He wants shelves on which to keep his jars of worms and dried frogs' legs. 6is wants her room to look pretty, but she, too, wants a place to live in rather than simply to admire. v Father wants his easy chair when he comes home tired, and, you, too, mother, have'your litle weaknesses iibout your comfort. So it looks as though mere looks must make some litle sacrifice. Children love things that are new They have, for some reason or another, greater respect for things acquired m their lime, than for the hangovers of fro'nr before they were born, oven though that time antedated them only by a year or two. Funny how it works, but 1 have seen it happen over and over.
