He is air chief of staff for California. " His" wife, red-haired movie actress Julie Bishop, came along for the ride. General Shoop, a former test pilot, flew some of the sequences in Howard Hushes' film, "Jet Mot," now playing in Louisville. "We shot enough film for 10 flying pictures," he said. "Then we cut plenty." Yenger t'low for l ilm Maj. Charles Ycager, the world's "fastest man," did the tricky rolls for the movie, the general said. "Chuck's a good friend of mine." (Major Yeager was the first United States pilot to break the sound barrier.) General Shoop was aboard the parent plane when Major Yeager flew the needle-nosed X-l, dropped from a B-50 in the film.

' The general was a test pilot early in World War II, later joined a fighter group of the Eighth Air Force in Europe. He .was given a reconnaissance-group command on P Day. The Shoops met in 1944 while each was on a short vacation in Talm Springs. They were married shortly after at the home of Jack Frye-, then Trans World Airlines president, in Falls Church, Va. "We were. both supposed to leave next day," said Mrs. Shoop. "I for Hollywood to begin work on a film, and Clarence for England. But some general took pity on us. He found some work for Clarence to do in California. "Then we came back to Washington and Mrs. Roosevelt asked us up to Hyde Tark for a few days. So we had a wedding trip after all."

She's film actress Julie Hishorj. The general, once a test jiilot, Mrs. Shoop live in Ueverly Hills, have two ihihlrcn. said. For the combat scenes, a camera was mounted under a jet fighter. Why was the film held up for so lonj.? (It was first filmed about 9 years ago.) "Several reasons." said the general. "About the time it was finished the wide screens came out. Some of it had to be redone for wide screen. Then, loo, some of it hadn't been done to Mr. Huches' satisfaction." "Mr. Hughes is a rerfectionist?" he was asked. "Understatement of the year," said the general. "You know, he seldom wants anyone to fly a plane he's in. He doesn't want anyone to touch anything in the plane. Sometimes, though,' he's in one place and wants his plane there. "Occasionally I've flown his plane to "I thought you'd like to come back when the President was here," Mrs. Roosevelt told them. "I realized what a remarkable woman she is," said Mrs. Shoop. "Of course, she was entertaining so many people. But she said to us, 'I know the Shoops would like to have their old room back.' " Later the Shoops attended small dinners at the White House. "One night there were only the Presi-dent. Mrs. Roosevelt, Anna Roosevelt and her husband, John Bocttinccr. and us. It was exhilarating to sec the President turn to my husband and ask, 'Colonel, what do you think about things?' What a wonderful, colorful man Mr. Roosevelt was!" Mrs. Roosevelt also took the Shoops on a tour of the White House and showed them "everything, even the icecream freezer, and talked about how -the-grandchildren ran up and down the stairs." In Beverly Hills the Shoops live in a contemporary house with "lots of glass. Not moderne," said Mrs. Shoop, putting the acent on the last syllable, "but a good outdoor-indoor house." Mrs. Shoop has appeared in several movies and on the "My Hero" series of the Bob Cummins Show. Bob and the Shoops arc old friends. General Shoop sometimes. plays himself on the Cum-mings show. uniming It l ljrr "Bob's an excellent flyer, of course," said Mrs. Shoop. "He was an instructor during the war. He has taught me most of what I know about flying. You know what they say, a husband should never teach you flying or driving." Mrs. .Shoop has never soloed. "But In the air she's fine," said the general. Mrs. Shoop isn't doing much film work just now. "It's so hard to leave the children." Her absorbing interest is painting in oils. "All the paintings in our house are hers," said the general, "and they're so god our friends don't believe it." Mrs. Shoop's latest movie was "The Big Land" with Alan Ladd. She also appeared in "The High and The Mighty," "Action In The North Atlantic," "The Sands of Iwo Jima," and other films. Not long ago the Shoops visited Mrs. William Randolph Hearst at San Simeon "just to see it once before it becomes a State museum." "It's fabulous. Pictures don't do it justice," said the general. Mrs. Hearst told General Shoop: "Pretty soon there'll be ropes around this furniture and I'm going to put up a sign, 'Shoopie slept here."
