PAGE S£t HOPE StAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Tuesday, November 22, 1938 NG A FAMILY By Olive Roberts Barton "Character" Largely A Matter of Stamina Under Life's Blows "Mother, when do girls grow up?" asked Dorothy. "J.ome grow up before they're in kindergarten," smilled Mrs. Smith. "Others, like your poor hepless Aunt Esther are not grown up at fifty. Maturity is a state of mind. Character." "What makes character?" "We're geting introspective, after all, aren't we? You ought to know what character means.' The minute I think I have no character, I begin fishing around for some reason to excuse myself. I think psy- cKolgy do that It gives people res- sons for everything, what gandma and I want to know grandpa called character before all this science? was talked about. And what they tho- unght about people growing up. They used to let their children do all sorts of things we arn't allowed to di now. I mean dangerous things, make character.?"

It has gotten so complex that parents scarcely know the difference between saf.ety and dange. We want to develop you through a certain amount of experience and at the sarhe time we fear to let you loose. We keep you 'children' as long as we can, just because we are confused. "But you want to know about character. In school maybe you call it sportsmanship. But that isn't quite enough. I think it means working till you're ready to drop and then goig right on and working some more. It's strange how much punishment our bodies will stand if we don't begin to 'feel' a lot of things. It means doing without and without and then without some more. And whistleing while you're wanting. Oh, dear, it would take me until next Christmas to give you a receipt for character." Can Be Human, Through Spartan "Go on. I like it in words not in the text books." 'It means then, when you have a rain to keep your mouth shut. And ic certainly means that you've got to bear your troubles alone. The person always hunting symthy and understanding hasn't any character. Not a bit. Character means enduring alone." "It sounds sort of Spartan. No one is that way. " "Cm giving it to you straight, darling. Character is not a compro- mjse.' ' "But people have feelings. They're human, not pieces of stone." "Yes. But they can have character and tsill be human. Their softer side should be developed by thought for others and not for self. They are grown up when they have about three- fourths of the ingredients I havp been talking about." "Mother," I guess I'm pretty young. Watch me grow up in a hury, now."

"The idae is that you are snug and smug in your seat while right before your eyes so'iivoone else—someone who's maybe doing better than you financially and socially—is being made ridiculous and uncomfortable. This gives you a superior feeling, which is something everybody relishes." "There are other kinds of comedy," said Butler, "but bear grease is the basis of them all. To sec some good examples of the other types, from our pens, you would have to Bel n job at the city dump, or as a janitor here. You can tell your readers that if they're curious enough, just to write us—enclosing the top of a Paramount film can—and we will see that they get such jobs.I" "We gotta go write a story now," said Hartman.

By BRUCE CATTON This ought to be a good Thanksgiving Day. First of all, the season has been bountiful. The yield of our farms has been good, trade and industry iieem to be picking up speed again, and most Americans v.'ill be able to sit down to a big dinner commemorating those facts. But Thanksgiving has come to be more than just a seasonal feast. It has become a time for casting up our national accounts so we can see how we have fared during the last 12'months; a time for looking both to the past and to the future, and for assessing our own place in the general picture of the world. And by any of thone account inijx, ive have abundant reason to return devout and heartfelt thanks. The last eight or nine years have not been easy. They have put ouv country, probably, to u greater strain than it has suffered since 1865; yet it has stood the strain nobly, and now it is becoming pretty evident that the worst is over. A great many people have suffered rather severely, but the nation as a whole received no permanent damage—and the signs now arc that things are going to go on getting better during the coming year. If you look overseas, the reason for thanksgiving in America is even clearer. In Europe and Asia bloody wars are raging; and millions of people have to live under the daily dread that tomorrow it will be their turn. Intolerance and persecution recall the Dark Ages. From all of that, ire arc HJHI-I ed. Alone of the earth's great nations, we can look forward confidently to years of peace—years which we can devote to construction, not to destruction, years which should increase the sum total of human,./ happiness instead of decreasing it. Truly, if ever a land had reason to return thanks, it in our land!

"And this"—indicating atall, sad-looking fellow—"is Frank Butler. Comedy- writing team. The best, absolutely. They wrote 'Paris Honeymoon,' the Eing Crosby picture I'm working on. Say, '.v.'aybe you guys would tell him | [ about how you wrote 'Paris Honeymoon'." "Sure," said Butler. "We've got nothing to do. Nothing, that is, except write another comedy. You know, the main difference between a comedy writer and a dramatic writer is clothes. The dramatic writer wears a double- breasted blue serge suit and the comedy writer's outfit looks like something by Walt Disney. The reason—'' "The idea is," broke in Hartman, "that the dray-man gent is supposed to look serious and dignified in a story conference while the comedy guy has to get laughs. . When a scene falls flat as he reads it aloud to the boss, he can always geta laugh out of his get-up, It's a form of job insurance." "When you were writing 'Paris Honeymoon'," suggested the press agent, "I suppose you—" Comedy .Must Stay Fuiuiy ''Of course, the big neadache," interrupted Butler, "is how to be funny. Remember that a screen writer is sup- posd to get his stuff actually on the screen. Before this happens, a line or I situation has to seem funny to a pro- i ducer, his secretary, office boy, chauf- I feur, wife, cook and gardener. If it i doesn't, it's out! Now a scene that j might seem hilarious to a producer on ' Monday may fall flat as curbstone i chewing gum on Tuesday if his eggs I happened to be cold, at breakfast. Dozens of our funniest scenes get tossed into yawning wastebaskets and—" "I might mention." said Hartman, "that the wastebackets always are yawning before our scenes reach them. As a matter of fact, the cleaning women and janitors here at Paramount are our best audience. And only last week a man at the city du'jr.p telephoned and asked how soon he could expect some more of our stuff. He said he and the boys were dying over it!" "In 'Paris Honeymoon'," broke in the press agent, rather desperately, "you—" A Catalog of Laughs "In case you are interested in the different kinds of laughs," said Butler, ignoring the appeal, "there are the snicker, the giggle, the chuckle, the guffaw nr belly-laugh, and the paroxysm in which you are carried out of the theater and revived by a pulmotor squad We have never actually seen this last one occur, but rival comedy writers tell us it happens on their pictures regularly. Laughed First at Bear Grease •'The firsl laugh , in history." explained Hartman, "was when a cave- man slipped on a hunk of bear grea.se and fell flat on his leopard skin. His next-cave neighbor then emitted an hyena-like sound which at that time was thought to be caused by stomach ulcers. But the first caveman tried his bear-grease fall again and again with the same result. Pretty soon he was kno' around the village as the Jroucho Marx of the Stone Age until omebody beaned hiVn' with a club. That drew the first belly-laugh." The press agent left off tearing his nair and interposed quickly: "You CCT- tair.ly did get a lot of belly-laughs in "Paris Hon—' " "Actually it's easy to analyze what makes you laugh,'' declared Butler. "If a tramp slips and falls in the mud, that's a snicker. If a pompous-looking Kent does it. that's a giggle. If he has ;i top hat and frock coat and has just come from the office where he bawled I out a meek clerk, his fall gets a! chuckle. But it's a guffaw if the clerk accidentally trips the tough employer.' "Couldn't you illustrate those different laughs with situations in 'Paris Honeymoon'?"
