We,theWomen Think, Parents, Before Giving Invitation for "The Duration" By RUTH MILLETT Before they impulsively invite young married daughter to come horm and live with them for the duration parents ought to look ahead a bi and sec if it really would be a good thing for everybody concerned. It might not be a bad idea for them to ask themselves these questions: If we offer her a home will Mary lust sit down and let us take care of icr—instead of feeling responsible foi •standing on her own two feet? If "the duration" turns out to be several years, will we wish we hadn't >een quite so eager to get our daugh- er back under our roof? Parents vho know their children's dispositions and weaknesses ought to be better nble than anyone else to answer that. Do we like and approve of Mary's lusband—and, if not, can we pretend o? If they don't like him, and show it. here's bound to be trouble somc- vhere, either between Mary and her arcnts or between Mary and her uisband. Many Problems Confront Parents Will we refrain from spoiling Mary, either by suggesting that in the past .'.he has been over-worked and under- appreciated or by giving her gifts her husband couldn't give her even in his pre-army days? Will we forego the temptation to offer her advice on matters that concern no one but her afnd her husband —such as whether or not she should go to visit him at his camp? Will we remember that Mary is a Our Greatest Shortage Harrison in Hollywood •r PAUL HARRISON, NEA Service Correspondent Success Also Succeeds in Gal-Getting HOLLYWOOD - On what happen-© to be his eigth wedding anniversary he other day, Robert Cummings lalk- d about love and romance.

Parents may think that it is a lot of nonsense to consider all of those angles when it is their own daughter they are inviting to live with them. But, it is wise to think a while before extending an invitation that is as indefinite as "for the duration." "Dimouts" instead fo blackouts have been recommended by lighting engineers. Enemy pilots would sec only a confusing checkerboard of faint illumination in which all strategic land marks would be blotted out. •t the THEATERS •SAENGER Wed.-Thurs.-"Swamp Water" Fri.-Sat.-"Secrets of the Wasteland" and "Two Latins From Manhattan" : Sun.-Mon.-Tues.

The love-and-romance..,. discussion involved the star's professional career, and it started from a mild argument we were having over whether an actor—any actor, even Wallace Bcery-woulcl be regarded by the fans as a successful amorist if he were repeatedly shown in romantic situations. Cummings said he would; thai after the public had watched him win a few glamor gals it woulu admit he must have some sort of fascinating masculine magnetism, Four-Year Stymie Bob went on to cite his own case as an example. In spite of a variety of dashing, virile but loveless roles during his first four years in Hollywood he made little progress. As soon as he began getting the girls, his fortunes zoomed. There's no argument about Cummings' eligibility as a sigh-and-palpitation specialist. But this obvious destiny was delayed by the manner of his start in Hollywood: The young man from Joplin, Mo., crashed Broadway and the movies under an elaborate masquerade as a brilliant British stage prodigy. Even after his bluff was dropped the idea persisted lac was especially suited to heavy drama. As a result, he became typed as a hcros' sidekick who usually gave up liis life for his friend, and who always gave up the girl. Once in a while he was permitted to fade out of a picture hand-in-hand with some minor-role cutie. but such events were nothing to supercharge blood pressure. anybody's The time came when Cummings decided to play romantic parts or none at all. Sonjii Did It The turning point camo wllen hc went out to 20th-Fox in 1939 and wooed, won and clinched with Sonja Hcnic in "Everything Happens at Night. At Universal, there wasn't much clinching in ried out romantic conquests, and in "Saboteur" he is enviably accompanied by Priscilla Lane on a long villain chase. So here's the proof. Cummings now is just about the busiest leading actor in town. He's getting top billing, and he also is getting many, many letters frmo feminine fans. As follows: "Dear Bob—I am 15 years old and in high school and considered quite attractive by certain fellows, only I don't care much what they think. I think you are a wonderful actor and I see all your pictures and I would like to know if you like red hair and hazel eyes which is what I've got. Please send me youi photo." Not Going to Pan Bad Movies Who Ever Heard of Unity Between Critics, Producers? By GEORGE TUCKER NEW YORK - This is the silliest thing I ever heard of. A movie columnist who is widely syndicated says he isn't going to pan any bad movies or bad acting until the war is over. "I think this is the time for unity," he explains. Unity between critics and producers? What sort of double talk is this? Suppose book reviewers, music critics, drama critics, prize-fight referees, and magistrates in the criminal courts would leave off adverse decisions until the war is over. No doubt the play-wrights and the bad directors and actors would enjoy this very much, along with the wife-beaters and the crooks, but I fail to sec what effect this would have on the "ermans or the Japanese.

"The first things that greet me whei I arrive home from the golf course,' says Bob "are my dogs. I have a black Scotlie and also a Great Dane which was given me by a frienc. when I arrived in Hollywood from the cast. Although he ate very mud at the time, I kept him . . I figurec if things got too tough with my picture career, I could ride him back east. My Great Dane's name is Red Son. He came from a litter of five He was third, and paid six-forty to show. Originally he was named "Dark Cloud," but then I changed it so the California Chamber of Commerce would take their pickets away." That's Hope, and to me it's funny, yet some other comic could say the same words, and it wouldn't be funny. Speaking of comics, Eddie Cantor tilings comedians have a tremendous responsibility during these times "In (what way?" I asked him. "In this way," he replied. "The six top flight comedians in the country who have radio programs make at least 90 million people laugh every week. In some countries, people go for months without a laugh. That's why the laugh-getters of America have a double responsibility." Cantor neither smokes nor drinks.

Canadian boys are fighting on all the fronts; their homefolks are fighting too in the factories, the Red Cross rooms pn the farms, in the pilot schools turning out thousands of air aces for the Royal Canadian Air Force, helping Norwegians build their air force A country so big and wild and young that she has the tempo and drive of the United States; and still so closely related to the old world-through her large French population and her strong ties to England—Canada seems to enjoy the advantages of English torilage without the disadvantages of European traditions frequently in- or the armed services. "How do you do it?" I asked "You know I don't drink," says Eddie, 'so if I invite you to a cocktail party-look out. There's a catch •o it somewhere." PAGE TH*M Beauty Lesson Off Campus College Just Naturally Improves Girl's Looks By BETTY CLARKE Wide World Beauty Editor Whether a girl goes to college as a beauty, or not-quite-so-pretty, she's almost bound to come out looking lovelier. And it's her own idea. It's just like her choice of the kind of clothes she wanted to wear and the determination to make her own substitutes until the manufacturers caught on to the fact that she meant it. That's why, with glamour rampant a while back, she said she'd just settle for natural beauty. She wanted courses in how to look good and she got 'em. First they were just idea sessions, or conferences. Then they got into the curriculum: Good stuff about clothes charm, cosmetics, health, psychology food, figure and fancy. Now careerists can look to her for lessons in loveliness. She can show tricks in how to perk up as well as furnish proof that sleep and a lot of milk mean much toward making a happy beauty. Hackettstown, N. J., Centenary Junior college, like many other schools, can teach a girl how to keep active and how to let go if routine gets too heavy. Resting is a cinch the way the go at it. It's mostly a matter of putting your head lower than your feet and settling your shoulders in a sootning sort of shrug for 15 minutes or more. It's good for jitters or war nerves as well as for easing up after exams. Another favorite there for fun and quieting nerves is found in 'the modern dancing class. Rhythm helps them to relax. Moving muscles in steady graceful motion is hard to do at first but it's a method that soothes your system in a manner not too relentlessly routine. , It's been done in public schools and women's organizations outside of college, too. The big beauty secret in cosmetic classes is to avoid too much makeup, using little rouge, less lipstick, better no nail polish than chipped polish, no eye stuff in daytime.
