PAGE FOUR STAR, Wednesday ^22, Admiral Demands Still Better Navy Taylor Is Chief Who Streamlined Navy for Greater Speed By J'RESON GROVER WASHINGTON — The mathematical genius who added extra miles to the spWni of every modern, warship afloat •Watches today from u bed in Naval Hospital here while? younger com-! rattes. u.«int? his pfans, make ready to add another billion dollars worth of might to the United St.-ite.s navy. The famous .ship designer, whose text have become the "bible" of; nava! architects in every country, is Admiral D;ivid Watson Taylor. His is one of the brightest naval minds that have come out of Annapolis. He is the admiral who "took the bone out of the teeth of high speed fighting vessels." as navy people phrase i t. Generations of navy men knew that the huge boiling wave of frothy water which ployed ahead of fast ships was a cosily one. cutting down the speed o( the ship and eating up its fuel so that il could not stay at sea so long. It was beautiful to see an old style ship plowing the waves with "a bone in her tf*th." But to the navy it was it costly sight. It fell to Admiral Taylor to design ships which cut the water instead of rolling il majestically aside in a huge wave. Changed World's Navies It took years of painstaking ex- periirientatiun in :i cramped testing pool in Washington. The plan he •evolved was culled the "bulbous bow." To the inexpert eye it • looked as if putting a big bulge on the lower part of a ship's bow would raise even a bigger wave ahead than would a knife edge. Taylor proved it would not. Every modern destroyer, battleship and cruiser now has the "bulbous bow" design he worked out. Speed-lining of ihips was not his only contribution to naval designing. He put ihe U. S. navy in the lead of other navies for a time by center-lining the firing turrets. Old lima battleships balanced their gun turrets on opposite sides of the ships. Taylor designed the system which permits the four heavy turrets, two aft and forward, to ride the center-line of the ship. It increased fire power, accuracy, and stability of the ship. Equally important, it put the- turrets farther into the core of the ship, adding. strength and efficiency Every world navy followed suit. Taylor was not much of a seagoing sailor, fur the navy would not waste his designing abilities by sending him to sea. He was a 'brains sailor" from the time he entered Annapolis in 1881, after completing a college course at Randolph-Macon, where he enrolled at Ihe age of 13. Fresh out of Annapolis, from which he wa.>: graduated with a scholastic record exceeding all previous records, he was sent 10 the Royal NavaJ College in England for post-graduate work in naval architecture. There again he received highest honors.

Studios are bidding for a chance to star her, and Broadway wants her to come back. Critics have polished up some nice adjectives to frame their verdict that she's a swell actress, and agents and producers are •sending her scripts to read. Miss Arthur has beaten Hollywood sifter some 14 years of disappointments, •but those same years £eem to have ctoeaaed her of the capacity for enjoying her triumph. Today she's a scared, jittery introvert huddled in z.n ivory tower and biting her nails. 'WTjen she steps in front of a camera. 've^Jrthmg's dandy; there is warmth and confidence. When the director says "Cut," she looks around for a place $o hide. No other player, even the Greta Garbo, offers so.much contrast. There is such a dearth of pleasant anecdote about Miss Arthur that it was considered big news when shn co-ope*ited in a surprise birthday celebration for Frank Capra on the set of "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington." She asked him to come to her dressing room to explain something in the script, and she detained him a coupje of minutes while other members of the cast arranged a cake and refreshments. That's all there was to it. She gives no interviews but is too shy to refuse them pointblank. Any such requests must be referred, through her own studio, to her husband, Frank Ross, vice president in charge of production at the Hal Roach lot. If Miss Arthur is working at the time, she is said to be "to busy." If she isn't working, she is said to be "not available." Refuses to Pose for Still Cameras Ross, whom she married in the east in June, 1932, when he was a realtor and buflder, is believed by most of Hollywood to have coached her into her attitude of aloofness. Just a.s good u guess, though, is that he merely is shielding her uccording to her own wi.shen. Miss Arthur dreads .still cameras and will not pose for fashions or the publicity informals which are accepted by most actresses as routine chores. Onlj the other day a news photographer snapped her at a party. She called hm un ugly name. He yanked the holder from his camera, pulled the slide, landed her the film and said, "Here's pit-lure of you saying it!" Jimmy Stewart, twice teamed with 'eun Arthur, believes she's truly a great actress. "She's warm; she feels her part," le said. "You can see it in her eyes, he way they swell up when she comes nto n scene." Howard Hawks, who directed Miss Arthur in "Only Angels Have Wings," 'ound u litlle difficulty in adjusting was inclined to act with too much us- surance and independence. She Tries Hard to Be Congenial , About the off-stage Arthur, Hawks said, "She's just awfully shy—can't talk to people and dreads meeting them. I know it hurts her more to turn'down an interview than it would to give it. Sometimes she cries from sheer nervousness." Nobody doubts that she'd like to be congenial. During the filming of "You Can't Take It With You'," Ann Miller (the ballet-dancing sister) tried to bring Miss Arthur from her dressing room seclusion. Friendly as a puppy, the youngster said, "Why 'don't you sit around the set with the rest of us? We'd love to have you." Miss Arthur looked startled, then softened and said, "All right. Thanks." But when she tried it, the rest of the company were so puzzled by the gesture of friendliness that they were ill-at-ease and silent. Miss Arthur went back to her dressing room, but after that she often asked Miss Miller to come in and talk. The Texas cutie even taught the star some rudiments of tap dancing. A check forger, posing as n doctor ordered a floral piece shaped like a stethoscope and was trapped be- secause he couldn't spell it. It would lave been easier if he had asked for something shaped like a measle.

Nazi partisans will not care to assist Miss Moothe's latest saga by their patronage, It's a Broadway nil, by the way, despite the protestations of the ! German consulate in Washington. A curious admixture of ;jnti-Nai;i sermonizing and mystery, "Margin for Error" is all about the murder of a Nazi consuia in the United States who is guarded by Jewish policemen, assigned by a mayor who believes in the workings .of democracy. Well, the consul, who is not the most scrupulous of diplomatic emissaries, is killed, and what Miss Boothe goes on to tel! is — who ckli il! It is the non-Aryan gendnrme who .solves the dilemma amidst plenty of excitement. No, they can't get that Boothe girl to write trivial domestic comedy.

But now and then you hear of the extriordinary New Yorker who likes to walk in the rain, sloshing along empty streets with a proprietary air.
