Best Story Is Sometimes Hard to Find By 60B THOMAS ' '? HOLLYWOOD Iffl — Sometimes you never can tell where the best story is lurking on a movie set. For instance, went a-visiting oh the stage where "The Second Greatest Sex" was being, made. It's "Lysistrata" brought to frontier Kansas, with the women of a settlement staging a love strike until their men end their long for- eys against other counties. The set was filled with women of all ages, but the one whose story intrigued me most was a girl named Edna Skinner. She was tall and good looking, but a Mother Hubbard and an upswept hairdo gave her a comic look. That might be discouraging to a girl who was once a New York model, but she doesn't mind. She likes to play comedy. Not only was Edna a model. She has been a Broadway star, night club entertainer, farm hand and operator of a successful ranch in Bitter Root Valley, Mont. But here is her story: The daughter of a paper manufacturer of upstate New York, she was given up to die at 15. "I had been an invalid during most of my childhood," she recalled. " had chronic asthma, and in those days a case as bad as mine was considered fatal. I was sent to a hospital near Lake Placid, and wasnt expected to come back. But I got under the care of a wonderful doctor, who was trying some new methods. There were five of us children under his care. Three pulled through; two didnt." During her long illness, Edna nursed the ambition to be an actress. When she got well, she went to New York to attend the Academy of Dramatic Arts. When she graduated, she auditioned for the role of Ado Annie in "Oklahoma!" She was to replace Shelley Winters in the New York company, but Celeste Holm suddenly got a call for a Hollywood 'test. Edna took her spot in the New York company. Later she did well as a night club star, but she didn't feel satisfied. She explained: "I knew I didn't know enough about life. During most of my early life, I was sick in bed. hen I was well, I often went with my father on business trips. I never really got to Pother of Soop Operas Resents Title By WAYNE OLIVER NEW YORK '(/P) —The man who's often referred to as the father' of seap opera comes clean about a pet peev: "I've resented the term 'soap know people, and that's something you need if you want to act." So she pulled up stakes and headed eWst on Montana, she fell in love with a broken-down ranch. She bought the 300 acres and some cattle and started working . the place. By the end of 4'/ 2 years, the ranch was in fine shape. When an airline. heiress offered to buy it, Edna put a price three times what she paid for it. To her amazement, it was accepted. After a long European vacation, Edna figured she had learned enough about people and returned to her acting career. She played Esther Williams' sidekick in "Easy | to Love" and has appeared in 20 "Topper" TV films. opera' from the very start," says William M. Ramsey, director of radio for the biggest sponsor of daytime series Proctor & Gamble. "I think now everybody uses the word, though," he concedes. He also think the term has lost some of its earlie rderisive conrotations. "It's simply the age old art of telling a story," he says. "Some are well told and some are poorly told. Many daytime serials are tripe but there are many well written ones. "Looking down ,the nose of them is done by people who refuse to listen. Daytime serials are criti cizecl mostly by those unhibited by knowledge of what they're talking about." Ramsey's company has 13 daytime serials on radio and five on TV, And also is a big sponsor of evening TV shows. He cast the principals for CBS radio's Ma Perkins in the roles they're still playing 21 years later. Some radio serials have been transferred to TV but Ramsey doubts that Ma Perkins will be. Too many people, he says, have formed their own mental images of Ma and the images probably vary widely. Opera star who is guest soloist tonight on NBC radio's Telephone Hour, figures that even a career woman's P l ace is with her husband. When her own husband, Capt. Wesley Posvar of the Air Force was stationed at West Point N. Y., they made their home ' at Peekskill, N. Y. halfway between his post and the Met. When he was reassigned to Washington last autumn, she and the two children moved there too, and she now commutes to New York for her radio and opera engagements. ARKANSAS KILLED MARION, La.

He gave in to the urging of his quantity, to be paid crops are sold when the on supply-and- demand market, would solve much of our problems along this line.

It has been county papers. copied by other .(Editors Calaway's 23:) Note: reprint Here is letter of Mr. Jan. Much is being said about farm price supports, rigid supports at 90 per cent of parity, 100 per cent o£ parity, flexible supports, etc. A prosperous small farmer of our community, a man who came from one of the so-called big farm states, a state of wide open spaces f d much use of machinery, said me, "In reality, the farm price support program helps only the big farmer." I agree with him, Why not a program that will help all farmers, including the millions of small farmers? Why not a limited support on a limited production, such as I out- wife Clementine, who feels hs must conserve his waning strength. He surrendered to the tactful but urgent suggestions of some Conservative party leaders who want a younger, more vigorous man at the helm in Britain's coming general election campaign. But he yielded- mainly, friends say, to a growing awareness on his own part that for him time and strength may be running out. He is in his 81st year. He is an old man who has doddered, as old men will, on one day, and risen to great heights of oratory and intellect on the next, lately he has nodded Sometimes his white- fringed head in sudden sleep midway in meetings of the British Cabinet. Sometimes he has momentarily forgotten the names of world- famous men-men of power with whom he has wined and dined anrl matched wits across the table in wary intimacy . "I am now nearing the end of my journey," he said in tones tinged with regret in his 80th birthday speech last November. But in his waning years he has also stirred the nation in ringing speeches that have again revealed :he sweep of his mind and rallied Britain behind portentous policies. "Never flinch, never weary, never despair," he urged the nation last month. The words burned themselves into Briton's memories, crystallizing support for his policy of building British hydrogen bombs to hold Russia at bay. And while at times the old man has seemed to be fading, he has revived regularly to mow down Laborite opponents, one after an other, with quick shafts of rcpar- ,. , , , tee in the house of Commons. line below.

"For example, let us say to the wheat grower, we w,ill support you on 1,000 bushels of wheat at $2 per bushel, with limited support of 50c per bushel, this support to be demanded by you when you sell your wheat on supply and demand market. If your wheat sells for $1.60 you will get 40c;'i£ it sells for $1.50 you will get 50c; ' if it sells for less than $1.50 you will get only 50c.

There were notes of reluctance in the three judges' decision, however, as the law passed its first test of constitutionality. Chief Judge Charles E. Clark said in a separate opinion.

Why not a limited support on a limited quantity for all farmers? This would compare with the labor ' minimum wage. Acreage controls? None.

HUGHES LITTLE ROCK (UP) A Subcommittee of the slate Board ot Education indicated today it might seek consolidation of top jobs in ;he Education Department to effect needed economies. The committee, headed by Jon :H,ye of Rtissellville, was appointed by the board at its last regu- ar meeting, to find some way of cutting back expenditures in view of reductions in available revenue. At the committee's initial meeting here Education Commissioner Arch Ford opposed any consolidation or further cut in administrative expenditures on the basis it would be "possible but not desirable." Ford also told the committee that in his option, there is no grave emergency in operations of the state school system despite What some districts might report. Ford said that some districts had told him they might have to cut back the length of their school terms when he knew that it- was not true. personally The commissioner a c'k n o w 1- odged, however, that revenue in the next sschool year will be $1,540,000 less than the money being spent this year.Money used this Jury Deliberating Are Case; Defendant Den Any knowledge of Fi All Witnesses End Testimon by Noon Today Three Persons Drown Neor Forrest City FORREST persons, two CITY (UP) — Three ot them Memphis girls, drowned early today in a tributary of St., Francis river 14 miles northeast of here.
