He returned to his native Italy. The actor is back in Hollywood after^a three-year absence. He explained why he was gone: | "There is much more film activity in Italy than in Hollywood.! Why stay here waiting for jobs when you can be working all the time over there? i That may come as a blow to' Bollywoods pride, but its true. Movie production is limping along' here. The two largest studios,, MOM and 20th Century-Fox, used to have eight or nine pictures go-, ing in the lush days. Last week' they had one apiece. Meanwhile Hollywood on the Tiber has been booming. Cianelli was a natural to cash in on the boom. Well-known as an actor in this country and abroad, he speaks English and Italian equally well. French, too. Cianelli explained how he happened to make the trip to Italy: "David Selznick wanted me to appear with his wife, Jennifer Jones, in a revival of 'St. Joan, which I had done with Katharine Cornell many years before. I agreed to do it. I decided to take the train to New York, because I wanted the 'time to study the long part. By the time I got to New York, I knew the part. But I found out the play had been canceled. 1 stayed over to do a TV play on Studio One. Then I received a cable about a film in Italy. That was on a Thursday and I had to be in Rome to start Monday. I made i( in time, and I stayed for 10 more pictures. Born on an island near Naples, he trained to be an opera singer. He came to the United States "for a months visit, ended up staying here. He met his wife and em barked on a distinguished career as an actor, riot a singer. He became one of Hollywoods busiest character actors, usually as a gangster or some other vil lain.

HIKUKT WRN -? $s Constitution Change Seems Very Unlikely By JAMES MARLOW AP News Analyst WASHINGTON (/P) — People with a desire to change things or let them alone in this case the United tales Cbrifjitution and the United Nations Charter have plenty of chance in 1955 to let off steam. In the end, probably neither document will be changed. Once more Sen. Bricker (R-Ohio) urges the Constitution be amended to limit a Presidents treaty- making power. Under the Constitu tion as it stands the Senate can block any treaty made by a pres ident. Nevertheless Bricker and his followers argue that somehow, someday, a treaty which gets by the Senate will do grave damage by giving away American rights, particularly states' rights. Many Senate committee hearings en Brickers proposal have been held in the past. Last year the Senate was tied in knots for weeks with debate on an amendment. Bricker has a lot of support. He also 'has a lot of opposition, particularly from President Eisenhower. Last year Brickers rigid ideas were melted down into a mild substitute amendment offered by Sen. George (D-Ga). Jn the Senate vote even this was and Mrs. L. L. Mitchell attended a State Tuberculosis meeting at the McRae Sanatorium on Wednesday. Mrs. T. R. Moberg, Mrs. J.

The saga of the Pinkerton Agency in its trailing of Jesse James must, however, remain for another story. If we are to ride with mm, wi; cuiinoi. at the same time gallop with. them. The simple truth is, relentless pressure or no, brilliant eifort or otherwise, they never caught up to him. He rode too fast. Nimrod Long was well pleased with the day and date—March 20, 1868. The confounded war was three years over, reconstruction was shaping up . nicely in southwestern Kentucky. Particularly so in the guerrila-torn county of Logan and the up and coming city of Kusselville. The books of the financial house of Long a Norton were in their best balance since Appomattox. He glanced up to see six strta- "Good morning, Mr.- Long, sir. Nimrod Long's suspcisions carne My name is Colburn, Henderson a shade late in tne afternoon. n.. . -— .. , »i* Colburn . sir.

The vote was 60-31, one vote less than needed to approve it. Any constitutional amendment requires a two-thirds vote of Senate and House plus approval by three- fourths of the states. So even if it had squeezed through the Senate it might have been defeated elsewhere. Bricker does not give up easily. He's back again, demanding an- oth'er vote this year. A Senate subcommittee begins hearings on his proposal this week. But Brickers chances look poorer this year than last. In the fall of 1955 the United Nations will decide whether to hold a conference on changing its charter which by then will be 10 years old. • .-. ^ government favors such a conference. But, if it is held, any onfe of these five countries the United States, Russia, Britain, France, Nationalist China could kill with a veto any or all changes it didn't like. Since the United States and Russia are so far apart in their thinking on how the U.K. should be used or should operate, any chsnges both agreed on almos certainly would be minor and not basic. Nevertheless the State Depart ment and .the enate, looking forward to the possibility of a conference, have been studying ideas and proposals for charter revisions. some chronic infection—an infection which no doubt accounted for the continual squinting blink with lo The vault—pure luck of the profession—was open.

Cherry returned to Arkansas several days ago from the Little Rock Chamber of Commerce goodwill tour of the South. Businessmen on the tour said the former governor spoke at several stops and was given standing ovations. Cherry was defeated in 1954 in his bid for a second term by Gov. Orval E. Faubus in one of the bitterest political fights in Arkansas in recent years. The campaign left Arkansas Democrats almost equally divided between conservative and liberal elements in the prty, with Cherry remaining as champion of the conservatives.

NEWPORT, R. I. I/PI — Three men were killed ' and five injured ih"an explositm' of the Navy's underwater ordnance station today, Rear Adm. Joseph H. Wellings announced. All were civilians. The 'blast was caused by highly compressed air and fluid used in testing torpedo heads. It occurred in the dynamometer loom at the end of a building at Coddington Cove overlooking Ferry Landing. About 20 persons were at work in ' the building, a cement affair about 150 feet long. The dead and injured were taken to Newport Naval Hospital.

That program, which Eisenhower calls a cornerstone in dealing with friendly countries, is run ning into what OPA encoutered, during and after the war, while it was still controlling prices. Businessmen paraded before congreS sional committees to say what they thought of continuing OPA an< other year. One after another their story went like this: "I think OPA is HARISON, Ark. UP)—After three necessary and should be contin tied. But in my special case there ought to be an exception. Eisenhower has asked Congress to continue the reciprocal trade program, already in existence 20 years, another three years. Its purpose is to increase world trade and prosperity here and among na tions trading with the; United States. Briefly, it works like'this:. It lets the President lower'tariffs.on foreign goods imported here pro vided those same exporting countries agree to lower their tariffs on American goods sent to them. This means some American in dustries would have to compete at Various groups who might be at fected have fought against tariff cuts on imported, competitive products. . ; No later than yesterday Eisen hower said that to weaken the "administration proposals by crip pling amendments would strike a severe blow at the cooperative ef forts of the free nations to build up their economic and military defenses It could mean a retreat to economic nationalism and isola tionism.' On Feb. 18 the program passed the House by a narrow margin but unchanged. Then it moved over to the Senate, where,, before -it Davis, 26, of Mobile, Ala., and Loretta Ingersoll Davis, 17, of Hot Springs. Ark. Davis told Sheriff Spence Holder they were, married last December, and said his wife is pregnant. The sheriff said the rings, valued at $350, were found on Davis When he and the girl were discov- ered'lying in a ditch 20 miles south of here. The couple was sighted earlier by a highway construction crew. A bloodhound from the state prison farm at Tucker found their trail. ; . They were held at Boone County jail here today, where Prosecuting Attorney Dan Stephens said he probably would file grand larceny charges. Sheriff Holder said the couplfi traveled 20 miles in three days on .foot, and survived a hailstorm over the weekend.
