Arthur Left, Sonja's manager In the story, is talking to her about her marriage to Michael O'Shea. "Why don't you wipe the slate clean, make a fresh start?" he asks, "You mean a divorce?" replies Sonja. "I couldn't do that. If he wants a divorce, he'll ask for it. Until then, things will have to remain as they are." She finishes the shot, catches sight of me on the sidelines. "You see," she says, "even In the movies, everybody's always asking you if you are not going to get a divorce." In almost every picture, you are apt to see a shot where the camera dollies forward to the people on the screen, photographing as It goes. You don't give it a thought, but, on the set, the shot is often amusing to watch. Thin wook at M-n-M.

Indications that a Danubian federation will be created after the war, with Vienna as its capital or hub of administration, limn the pattern of Europe's future. With Germany broken up into at least three parts, as most foreign affairs authorities believe practical, there would be a federation of the west having its economic ties spreading from Scandinavia to Gibraltar.

"Isn't it strange," I ask Tallulah, "that you and Mae West should be playing the same character?" Tallulah doesn't exactly yawn, but her voice is touched with ennui. "Oh, I don't think they'll be the same character, dear," she drawls. "Of course, if Mae had had a success, I might take a different attitude." "But you'll admit she tops you ' In one thing," I say.

The Danubian states those small countries sprawling over the hills of the balkans from Poland to the Aegean would be under Soviet influence. And this control would be economic, political and military. It now is shaping up as the Russian troops join with Tito, marching on both sides of the river Danube, and as they work their way toward beautiful Vienna, the fabled city of music, medical research, pleasant living and political turbulence. Vienna is perhaps the least marked of Europe's leading cities. It is steeped in the lore of the continent. It is a natural site for hegemony in eastern Europe. It undoubtedly will take its place again as one of the world's foremost municipalities. And what is the role of the United States? We should remain on equally good relationship with each sphere of activity, not only in Europe, butMn the other parts of the world as well. Our State Department goal should be not for a balance of power, but instead, for a balance of trade and of production on all continents. As for power, we have it without question. For the first time since the golden era of Queen Elizabeth Britain has fallen far below us in sea power, relinquishing its No. 1 position among navies. In modern warfare, machines are more vital than man power. Russia outnumbers us in men available for armed service, but our productive might still far surpasses the Soviet. With such a position in the world, it behooves America to stand squarely for fair dealing with all peoples, avoiding such secret meeting as have muddled the international scene in recent months. That is the only hope for future peace. Indianapolis Star. SOME BRITISH FEAR THE IT. S. Americans are familiar with the tactics of some of their countrymen, who, because of a hatred for Great Britain, attempt to create doubt and suspicion in the minds of the people of this country as to the intention and purposes of the British Empire, both in the prosecution of the war and the organization of the peace. We should remember, in this connection, that the British have similar citizens who are very suspicious of the intentions of the United States. For example. Sir Charles Morgan-Webb, former official of the Burma Government, tells the British that the United States is going to use its huge accumulation of gold to "reduce Brit- ain to a position of subserviency". More praised as a high class one, whose talks greatly impressed the teachers. oatwpoof - s lir h shrshrd hrdsh tiiveit Sunday Kve.

To his own surprise Russell realized how glad he was to see the lights on In his living room, though it was not yet dark. The western sky flamed with the promise of another lovely day. The little house backed up on the water and he had an idea he would find Dan there. He went around on the narrow strip of grass, which he noticed had been mowed Dan was there and was talking excitedly to a slim young girl in a neatly tailored Mue outfit with a fall of. lace at her throat.
