Oland thought a better take should be attempted, but Lawman refused to shoot the Scene again. O "But," interrupted S. W.

There was Janet "out in thexcountry" sitting comfortably under a tree. She Was telling Taylor all about her dreams of life in a big city. "I know the city is wonderful," she was saying. 1 "I know how grand-the ladies dress, that they wear ert Taylor and Janet Gaynor In "Small Town Girl." thin chiffons that cling around them, and that they go to gay parties and . . ."

Mac, it might he stated here, ia the target for many romantically-minded girla in Hollywood, but to date he continues to pursue hi policy of being "just a good friend," to blonds and brunets alike. "I know when I'm well olf?" he said, with a broad grin. "Marriage must be pretty bad from what I hear. I cant imagine a guy wanting to get tied for life, can you?" ' WILLIAM (DEBONAIR) POWELL, who calls himself the "backyard Demosthenes," lives magnificently alone in a modern Grecian palace, and is an exponent of the unmarried atete also. He distinctly prefers blonda and is seen moat frequently with the blondest of them all, Jean Harlow. Still, he clings like a pair of pants to its lt suspender button, when it cornea to his bachelorhood.

A HOLLYWOOD PRESS oAGKHT IN TT5b THROES: "Reminiscent of a moonUt night ia a Southern magnolia garden is William Lambert's romantic formal ensemble of ivory souffle. It is o o o o "VER since Henry Fonda made the candid ad- mission that he was tired of single blessedness tnd wanted to get married, the love lives of Hollywood's 'eligible, independent yes and smug bachelors have not been the same. These unmarried ones and there is aarge number of them who revel in their freedom from the marital ties young Fonda regards as desirable, now look upon the young New Yorker as being something like the man who stalked dramatically out of the house after saying to his wife, "Everything is over between us. You will never see me again, goodbye" then had to go back for his hat. Q In other words, these film bachelors claim that Fonda, by leaving their ranks and closing the door upon bachelorhood to champion marriage, has .placed Donna Risher them in the spot where they must return and fight for their lonely, but doBirable, solitude all over again. BACHELOR MICHAEL WHALEN, being Irish and independent, is the first to challenge Fonda's desire for marriage. Mike is comfortably established now in a brand-new hilltop home in Hollywood and he is enjoying his freedom to the fullest. Therefore, he felt he could not let Fonda's iRri-nouncement go by without saying a few words. "If that guy Fonda will meet me in open debate, 'Resolved. That bachelorhood Is a More Desirable State Than Marriage', I'll lick him before he opens his mouth," Mike retorted.
