She WPS suspended Jan. 5, when she disappeared. But Frank Sinatra left a reconciliation with his wife Ava Gardner in Reme and flew to Hollywood on time for his role in the same film. Shooting was delayed, and when Miss Monroe turned up married o Jos DiMaggio her studio re- ented and gave her until yester- ay to report. She didn't, and her attorney announced: "Miss Monroe has au- horized me to make this statement: She has read the script and does not care to do the picture." Miss Monroe was promptly suspended again.

Jeanne Grain Says Star Too Pampered By BOB HOMAS HOLLYWOOD —Jeanne Grain is bad: from the wilds of Africa with the comment that Hollywood stars r.ie codJlcd and pampered too much. The flame-haired mother of four filmed "Duel in the Jungle" with Dana Andrews. This was he r first independent venture after 10 years of the glamor trt-.atment at 20th Century-Fox. She says it was an eye c.poner for her. "I never realized how much is I done for a star at the studios," she remarked. "There is someone to take care of your hair, your makeup, your clothes, everything. If you have to w&lk clown a hallway in a scene, the director thinks abou t whether you should do it or a double should be hired. "In Africa it was different. We were on our own. Our assistant director was killed on the rapids rehearsing a scene which Danua Hughes Is a Stranger to Own Studio By JAMES BACON HOLL Y W 0 O D tfl — Howard Hughes runs one of Hollywood's major motion picture studios. B"ut he has never been inside it. He confirmed that long-circulated rumon in a rare personal interview, siting in his inexpensive, 4-year-old car on a darkened air field in a driving rain. His own story: "I have never been in the place. In a quarter cenlury in and around Hollywood, Hughes hasn't given a handful of interviews or press 'jonferenccs. Occasionally, a reporter gets to take with him, as I have, but it's a casual meet-in ing, accidental, brief but pleasant. So when you write about the fabulous life of this multimillionaire, you do it largely without his help. The dark, rain drenched setting for this interview sounds typical of tho way Hughes always tries to koeo in the shadows. But it wasn't. He was planning to fly out of town, so the airport was a ^convenient spot. He Vvhnted 1o talk about some of the stories which have grown up around him—and which he or his crop of press tgcnts never took the trouble to deny. In fact, sometimes his publicity men have almost as hard a time catching him as do newspapermen.

Mrs.- Claude Tillery who is circle leader presided over' the busines_s session. Mrs. Tillery told of the Attendance Campaign being conducted by the church and urged each member to attend at least one phurch service each Sunday. A letter from the head of the Korean orphanage which received clothes from the circle was read. The Koreans thank ed the circle for this box. Mrs. John L.

Patterson and Miss Bren da Hamm attended this meeting. The hostesses served a dessert plate with coffee to those present. SINGER January Used Machine CLEARANCE SALE John Wayne drew $750,000 in sa'- ary because of long delays on the still-unreleased film, "Jet Pilot." The picture was made four years ago at a cost of four million dollars and probably will be released some time this year. Cutting and dubbing work is responsible for the delay, says Hughes. He added: "Wyane worked no longer than usual in this. The delay has been only in releasing. He got his regular pay, around $200,000. "And Janet Leigh's costumes will not be out of stuie. She plays a Russian flier in the movie." Although she was an unkno\vn when the film was made. Hughes says, she hadn't appeared to better ad vantage in any movie since. Hollywood often thinks of Hughes as a . grim, ruthless, domineering man. But talking to him oyer the rain, he was charming, easy-going aughod heartily and often. He iaughs most at the tale: about him which don't Involve his jusiness judgment. Like the one hat Lana Turner in anticipation of marriage, once had sheets mon ogramrned "HH" and he suggested she wed Huntington Hartford. But he is deeply concerned abou —some of the other stories. Almos without exception, he denies them Yet he concedse that his unortho dox way of doing business probab [y is at the root of most of them HKO minority sotckholders, hi believes, sometimes use storie about him as the basis for law suits. This can cost plenty, he says He tells o f one magazine article lighly critical of his managemen of the ctudio. "One stockholder even came to court with the article pasted on cardboard and the lawyers ques- ,ioned me about it, paragraph for paragraph." That's one reason he doesn't like publicity. He one of the nation's more famous courtroom regulars. "There was once," he recalled fondly, "when I went a couple 'rt years without litigation." He released both -'The Outlaw" and the current "French Line" without seals of approval from the Motion Picture Association. One surprising claim from Hughes: Neither has been cut because of censor trouble. 'French Line' in its original uncut version still JP running in St. Louis and will continue to do so until the customers decide otherwise, 1 ' Hughes said.

About the only thing they agree on io thai women can't drive as well as men — and doctors can't drive as well as women. "Doctors shouldn't be allowed out in a car alone," one said em- phatica'ily.

And that doesn't seem right, as mast of them have gone to college, end got educated." One of the cabbies I remember best was the man who liked to drive at night. "I can't take it at home," he said. "We lost our ot.-ly kid in Korea. My wife had kept his baby shoes,. and she gets them out now and starts crying. I can't sit there and look at her. I'd rather be' out working. ''You know, sometimes late at night when hardly no one's on the street, and I'm cruising around looking for a fare, I get a funny feeling my kid is riding in the seat -beside me, just like he die when lie was a boy.

A normal supply of cotton is equal to 130 per cent of the estimat ed disappearance. The estimated disappearance for 1954 is 12,600,000 bales, therefore a normal supply for 1955 would be 130 per cent of 12,600,000 bales or 16.380,000 bales. One hundred and eight per cent of the normal supply of 16.38..000 bal cs in 17,690,400, meaning that the supply would have to exceed this- figure in 1955 before the support prices Would drop below 90 per cent of parity price. "Consider the situation," Hardin said, "if the supply should climb above 108 per cent normal."' For each 2 per cent increase in supply above 108 per cent of normal, the support price level drops 1 per cent of the parity price. For example if the supply were between 10? and 110 per cent, the support price would drop to 89 per cent of parity and so on until the supply rcachec or exceeded 130 per cent of norma when the support price would be come stable regardless of supply until the supply dropped below 13( per cent. At that time, the suppor price would begin to climb back to 90 per cent of parity according to the supply-demand situation. The delegates, representing each of the state Farm Bureaus at the A FBF convention, he explained, rea zed that if farmers were to en oy high support prices, they mus ssume some of the responsibility f keeping supply in line with de narid just as did the Arkansas far ners when they voted to submit tc he necessary acreage allotment o bring in line with demand. The delegates to the Arkansa 'armers Federation's annual con- cntion voted to accept acreage al- otments on cotton not to exceed 0 million acres in exchange for uaranteed price supports equal to 0 per cent of the parity price.
