Thursday, December 23, 1948 HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Pago Thirteen 1 Believes Security Is Stagnation By ED L. CAMPBELL AP Newsfeatures London—• Security, said the man. is stagnation. .He sounded like he knew what he was talking about. Certainly Robert Donat, lor it was that veteran British actor do- ing the talking, can say at (he age of 43 that his own life has been neither secure nor stagnant. Currently the outlook is • bright. Donat's newest picture. "The Winslow Boy,' 1 from the smash stage hit by Terence Rattigan, is playing to big houses in London's West End. Americans who have seen it predict it will be a box office success in the United States. But it has been a long time since he scored his last film hit. And a lot longer since he did anything outstanding on the stage. He started with a big film winner in "The Count of Monte Cris- to." Then, after several mediocre efforts, he rang the theatrical bell in James Bridie's "Sleeping Clergyman." On the debit side went another string of efforts until Hollywood skyrocketed him to the HMO star of tiie year award in 'Goodbye. Mr. Chips." The war and Donat's own Lancashire stiibboi ne.s.i brought on the next "low." Donat sent his wiic and throe children to the United States in order to protect them from Hitler's bombing, but he refused to leave London himself. Arguments art Granger's 'Captain Boycott."

Length has provided the biggest surprise of the season. Many big name houses have raised hem- ines to the level the moderates fiad it last season—between 12 and .4 inches from the ground. One louse even hit the 15-inch mark jut onlookers generally agreed that such shortness looked quite odd. On the other hand there arc top- 'light houses still showing skirts that dip as low as eight inches from the ground so it seems you can choose any length you like and still be fashionable.

Pencil line skirts, slit to provide lep movement, wrapover types, spiral and corkscrew skirts complete the straight-line range. The corkscrew skirt, introduced by Jacques Fath, has drapery wound around a narrow, close fitting underskirt. Evenly distributed all-around fullness has been replaced by gently flared gores, or sheathliko skirts that have a bunch of fullness cascading cither down the side front or at the center of the back.

Having Many Setbacks AP Newsfeatures Darwin—Australian and American scientists are having many unhappy set-backs in their search for rare specimens of Australian native life in Arnherh Land, northern Australia. Here are some of the troubles: Dr. David A. Johnson, associate curator of mammals at the U. S. National Museum, Washington, sighted a dugong. This is a rare species of marine mammal, the supposed original of the Mermaid. The dugong was gamboling around on a sand bar. Dr. Johnson paddled a canoe out to the bar. His arrival frightened the dugong away. He took a short walk. His canoe disappeared while he was gone. It was a long and lonely night with the dugong playing in the water just out of his reach. Next morning the canoe was returned by aboriginal women who had thought it abandoned. The dugong was lost. F. D. McCarthy, anthropologist to the Australian Museum at Sydney, found a rare and valuable fresh water tortoise. Aboriginal carriers guarded it carefully for fifteen miles. The_n their appetites over came their good intentions. Then they cooked and ate it. ... Herbert H. Deignan, associate curator of birds at the U. S. National Museum, wanted a "Warbler." He trekked hundreds of miles carrying elaborate bird catching gear Not one did he se eon this trek. Back in Darwin one morning outside his Darwin quarters, he he"'•d a beautiful warbling note. There, a few feet away, was a coveted Warbler. His trapping gear was .still further away. He missed the bird. .... McCarthy was searching for a cave painting of a Malay prau on I Groote Eylandt. Suddenly he saw a fine young rock wallaby. He rushed back towards the camp to tell Dr. Johnson, who wanted such a specimen. Stumbling over rocks he met D.R. Johnson hurrying to tell him he had just found a beautiful cave painting of a Malay prau. Neither found what he wanted. Dr. Johnson, after many disappointments, caught a fine red kangaroo. He drove all the aborigines away in case they mistook it for food. Then he hung the kangeroo in a hut ready for skinning and went for his knife. When he returned the camp dogs, sitting outside the hut. were not hungry. But there was no red kangaroo. this finally ended in mutual agreement to dissolve his connection with the American company. The result was a return to the staae and little success. His wife returned after the war but only to obtain an uncontented divorce. Donat tried out and missed the part of Bill Sykes in "Oliver Twist." lie got a bit part —hardly three minutes— in Stewart Granger's "Captain doyeott." Then came "The Winslow Boy." Sir Alexander Korda, who always has liked Donat's work, gave him the difficult role made famous by the stage star. Enilyn Williams. Donat explains his checkered career by acknowledging that "people call me difficult." He is apt to receive guests dressed in impressed tweeds, an old sweater, a shirt with rumpled collar and tie awry. He will sprawl on the floor to demonstrate the construction of a model ship hu and his oldest son, John, are building together. John and Brian and daughter Joanna divide their M-liool holidays between their parents.
