Harrison in Hollywood •y PAUL HARRISON, NEA Service Correspondent Short Pickings From the Movie Mills HOLLYWOOD — All over the lol:?>- Not since the self-regulation of the movies began—when tough mugs began calling each other "you scoundrel," and gangsters exclaimed "Good gracious!"—has anybody used the word "louse" on the screen cither as a descriptive noun or an entomological term. But in the screen play of "Eagle Squadron" is a scene which may give the censors a headache. When Jon Hall raps Nigel Bruce with a scrambled literary allusion, the elder actor says, "And since you're takin'.liber- ties wi' Robbie Burns, don't forget the one he wrote about an ancestor o'yours . . . 'Ode to a Louse.' " . Then follows a writer's note in the script: "Although the Hays Office objects to the word 'louse,' it must be pointed out that the above poem is among Burns' best known, and it should be allowed to stand." Rough Pay-Off A few months ago the girl who sold flowers among the tables in a local night club was a striking brunet named Mary Scott. And among her customers was Gene Tierney, who siderable bite of the money represented by that film. So the studios plan very closely to empty their vaults and clear their sound stages just before pay-off day. On March 3, production will start with a rush. John Barrymore is beating back to financial independence, but he isn't there yet. Other day he met a former acquaintance who mentioned proudly that he is living in a house once owned by a movie star. "I too," said Barrymore, "am living in a house once owned by a movie star." "What star?" asked the friend. "John Barrymore," said the Great Profile. Clubs Hopcwcll The Hopcwcll Home Demonstration Club met February 18 at the home of Mrs. S. D. Cooks. The meeting was called to order by the President. Old and new business was attended to. Arrangements were made Edson in Washington ODHWS Handles Half-Dozcn War Jobs WASHINGTON — The Division of© Health and Welfare of Paul McNutt's Office of Defense Health and Welfare Services—ODHWS for short—has been given half a dozen side-line war jobs to do, only in Washington lingo they are called "programs to co-ordinate." Charles P. Taft, Cincinnati newspaper publisher and brother of the senator, runs the show which has dozens of advisory committees of doctors, welfare workers, public health officials and in addition tries to pull together the activities of some 20 existing federal agencies concerned with some program of their own for social betterment. It all may be a little confusing to a mere taxpayer, but when you spell out the whole job it cm- pliasb.cs how complex a business war is and how many things there arc about which somebody thinks something should be done. The list runs nil the way from curbing sin, providing soldiers in camp with a place where they can stomp and holler, running morning movies for war industry laborers who work at night, putting in additional schools and sewers in wnr industry boom towns, keeping together the family of an alien moved from a defense area to the interior, and oil up to seeing that there arc enough doctors and Barbs nurses to go round. Medical Migration Shifting the doctors and dentists a- rotind is just getting started. Doctors can't be assigned o areas in which they don't want to settle, but with the population moving hither and yonder as these new defense centers spring up, a parallel migration of medical strength must be made. Dr. Frank Lahcy, president of the American Medical Association, has therefore been named to head up a procurement and assignment service to spot these situations and then persuade enough doctors to move to new practices. Medical and dental students have been exempted from selective service lo insure an adequate supply of doctors for the future. And the third and fourth year students have been urged to join the Army or Navy medical reserve, which will be needing thousands of doctors for field service. Supplying trained nurses has proved a bigger and more immediate headache because the expanding military forces brought heavy demands on the normal supply of 30,000 new nurses yearly. There developed an actual shortage of nurses. The estimated requirements were for 50,000 new nurses this year. Congress had to step in with an appropriation of more than a million dollars to expand training institutions giving the recognized throe year course and to give refresher courses to nurses no longer working at the profession. Help for Hospitals Providing the hospitals, schools, waterworks and sewers for expanding defense communities is something that runs into money. Since inany'of these expansions were temporary, it was not felt that the local communities could be asked to finance these public works completely, so the federal government has stepped in to help. Presidential approval is required for each of these projects after investigation and the issuance of a certificate of necessity by ODHWS. Then the Federal Works agency steps in to do the job. So far, more than 1000 of these projects have been approved for a cost of $170 million. Included in the list are some 300 hospitals, 286 schools and 250 recreation centers. All these are for civilian needs. In a separate class are the 250 recreation centers. All these are for civilian needs. In a separate class are the 250 recreation centers being built under the ODHWS Recreation section, headed by Mark A. McCloskcy, at camps and bases for the armed services. One hundred and ten of these have already been dedicated and 54 are under construction. The United Service Organizations takes over the job of operating these centers, n coclhcy'ro built.

CHAPTER XVIII A story from Washington says women may harvest the crops next year. They ought to clean up a field pretty well, the way they can go through hubby's pockets. It's only natural to expect that if the ladies are not able to buy girdles we'll have inflation. A magician was divorced from his wife the other day. Guess there's a limit to what magic can do. The war is changing everything. One of thc.se days a bathing beauty won't he able to get her picture in the paper unless she stands on a pile of sandbags. Incorporated in 1705, the town of Bath, N.

"It's all right, kid, as far as you're concerned." "That's not the question- I mean, did you find out why tie killed her?"

This town's been talking about the Towers ever since I can remember anything, wondering about 'em, and the like." Parris sat rigid, and Drake waited. Parris' face had altered during these hours. * * * pARRIS and Drake returned from the double funeral late the next afternoon. It had been more of an ordeal than either of them had anticipated. There was a curious crowd that packed the dim, shabby house. Everyone watched Parris. Whatever the mystery might be that lay back of this dark and terrible happening, he felt that Dr. Tower and Cassie belonged to him, and to him alone. His grandmother, Dr. Tower, Cassie—to lose three people who were a real part of your life, all in one week. Parris felt old, spent. He was thankful for Drake's friendly assurance in the days that followed. * * * WITH the thin strength of the numbed Parris forced himself to return to Dr. Tower's study for his notebooks and the letters from Vienna about his schooling. That night he was about to pack the composition books away when ihe noticed one, thicker than the others, closely written in Dr. Tower's small, difficult handwriting. Parris stared at it for a moment. He wondered if he had a right to read it. It was clearly a sort of confidential record. Certainly, Parris thought, he, more than anyone else, had a right to know what led up to the tragic outcome of that mysterious night. He turned the lamp up a little. Drake had gone: to bed. Then he Ibegan to read. ... t He grew heavier of heart as the pages turned. This was an- iother man than the one who sat taught him clearly and methodically.

An arrogant and intrepid intelligence flared through the pages; sometimes wandering, sometimes driven willfully, along dangerous ways. The Gordons, there had been no doubt for Dr. Tower, were to blame because he was refused a post at the asylum. From then on he had fed on the bitterness of his own solitude, consoled himself with the assurances of his own superiority, and noted with icy detachment that his own abnormalcy flowered in Cassandra. Parris shuddered. Kings Row, he felt vaguely — narrow, spiteful, gossipy, inbred Kings Row—had killed them both, or was at least as much to blame as the hand of Dr. Tower. Somewhere else—in a city—some place where his mind would have been appreciated, his genius welcomed, and his strangeness overlooked for the sake of both, surely Dr. Tower would have found . . . And Cassie! There might have been a normal girlhood for her in a kinder environment. Here, locked away from everyone—from would- be friends as well as jealous, gossipy Gordons—what chance had she been given for rationality? He closed the notebook and passed his hand over his eyes in the old gesture. * * * pARRIS and Drake stood on the little station platform. They felt stiff and awkward. A girl came through the station door and stood looking about. She was very pretty in a husky, forthright fashion. She saw Drake and her gray-blue eyes smiled. Drake turned. "Why, Randy Monaghan!" "You going away?" "Parris is going to Europe." Drake was looking very steadily at Randy. A slow warmth of color rose under her deep tan. Drake took her by the arm. "Gee, Randy, I bet you're the prettiest girl in the world!" There was a bustle and a quite unnecessary hurry about the place as the train of two coaches clanked to a standstill. Parris stood on the rear platform and looked back through the thick smudge of acrid train smoke as the station slowly receded. Drake gave a deep sigh. "He's a nice boy, isn't he?" "The very best. Well—there he goes. Four years! Gosh!" He turned, and his stiffened features achieved something of his old faunlike grin. "Say—my buggy's down here. How about coming for a ride?" "AH right," she said, "let's." Bo Continued). the male patrons to notice that Miss Scott had n quality the movies might want. So the stai- spoke to the right people and the flower girl got an interview, a test, and a role in "Rings on Her Fingers." The newcomer was especially thrilled about it because her benefactress has the lead in the picture. And then, for her first scene, Mary Scott had to slap Gene Tierney. What with all the spy pictures going on these days, many with feminine scret agents, there's sinister business afoot in the Holly woods. Not only afoot, but aback, since Paulette Goddard and Margaret Hayes had those torpedo plans drawn on their shoulder blades in invisible ink. As for the foot part, Eleanor Powell started it in the now-revamped "Ship Ahoy" by tap-dancing a dot- and-dash warning to American sailors that axis agents were about to sabotage a battleship. And now, in "Shadows on the Snow," in which she plays an Icelander, Sonja Henic will deliver a similar warning by writing out a message on ice during a skating number. Tax Beaters The studios seemed very quiet lately to anyone just strolling around the lots. No new pictures have been started, and those in production have been winding up at a rapid rate. Actually, though the cutting rooms, laboratories, special effects departments and music-recording stages have been busier than ever, and even a few of the casts have been working double time. The reason is taxes. Once a year —this time on March 2—the movie companies have to take inventory of all the film on hand that is part of new and uncompleted pictures, and the State of California takes a con- fhis job of caring for the aliens who may be moved around. Department o: Justice asked ODHWS to lake it over and the assignment was given to a Family Security Committee already set up under Geoffrey May, Taft's deputy assistant and also an associate director of the Bureau of Public Assistance of the Social Sccurit Board The problem hasn't been worked oui yet, but it is slated as being one of keeping off the public relief rolls and making self-supporting the evacuated people who haven'l done anything Ireasonable and who can't be put in concentration camps.
