Foo tball Star Bob Waterfield Becomes Movie Jungle Hero By Bob Thomas HOLLYWOOD. W His pro football colleagues may never let him live it down, but Bob Water-field is making his acting debut in the movies. And he's out-flynnlng Errol. Never was Flynn so brave. In "Jungle Jim In the Forbidden Land," Waterfield plays a former football hero who is downed in the wilderness during a wartime Army flight. Sort of like Tom Harmon, you see. Unlike Harmon, who came back to announce sports on television, Waterfield remains in the Jungle to become the leader of a native tribe. He likes it there. But he is sought after by a lady photographer (Sheila Ryan) and Jungle Jim, who is Tarzan with his clothes on (Johnny Weissmuller). All three get Involved with a mad doctor, who Is making synthetic diamonds, and the inevitable marauding natives. This problem is resolved when Waterfield tosses a forward pass with a packet of dynamite. Meanwhile, he has been throwing some passes at Miss Ryan, who also decides she likes it there in the Jungle and stays with him. I found Waterfield, the star quar-i- terback for the Los Angeles Rams, taking the rigors of his new job quite easily. Robert, who has been accused of having Ice water In his veins, was calmly smoking a cigar and waiting for his next scene. "It's easy," he admitted. "I don't have much dialog, so I don't have to study at home or anything. It's mostly action, and that's not difficult. Can you think of an easier way to make a few bucks?" "Game Gets Faster" I couldn't, and told him so. I asked him how much longer he intends to play football. He'll be 31 in August. "Another two or three years, he estimated. "I thought I would have quit before now, but the game gets easier every year. Yes, that's true, e.ven tho I'm getting older. With the two-platoon system, I don't have to play defence any more. And we have a new boy (Norm Van Brocklln) who can trade off with me on offense." Does he Intend to make acting his full-time career when his foot-j ball days are over? He shrugged his shoulders, indicating little faith in his dramatic ability. He added that he had couple of other deals on the fire. His new bosses were more glowing about Waterfield'! future in films. Said Director Lew Landers: "He's coming along fine; he has the same confidence before the camera that he hai on the football field." Producer Sam Katzman, who hat signed the grid star to a long-range contract, declared: "He's the most natural new personality In years. The audiences will see that he's Just like boys they know in their own towns. I'm going to let his career develop gradually, Just as I did with John Wayne." The producer said that the shy Waterfield had an ordeal for his first love scene. It was an outdoor sequence at a ranch location. Watching it was the full crew of movie makers, plus two busloads of tourists who had been driven by. The director Instructed Waterfield to give Miss Ryan a kiss. "In front of all these people?" he protested. But he did it. I asked him what his wife, a girl named Jane Russell, thinks of his new career. "She thinks it's a big laugh," he reported. LIS? tiu , , Three Neptune Teachers Quit The Neptune township school board last night accepted the resignation of three Instructors and granted leave of absence to a fourth. Dr. O. J. Moulton, supervising principal, read letters of resignation from Miss Estelle W. Ferris, Mrs. Virglna H. Wlllams and Mrs. Joseph Sandford. The request for a military leave of absence was made by Charles W. Riley, physical education Instructor who has been recalled to service. According to Dr. Moulton, Miss Ferris, who taught at the Whltes-vllle school, had been a member of the Neptune faculty for about 40 years. In her letter, she stated she planned to retire. Mrs. Williams, a teacher at the Ocean Grove school for 3i years, resigned because, the said, she was needed at home to care for her family. Mrs. Sandford, who taught for one y.ear at the Summerfleld school, quit be cause she planned to move to Tren ton. No successors were immediately named except Raymond Kuzava who will take over Mr. Riley's physical education duties. Mr. Kuzava was a practice teacher at Neptune high this year, and he will be graduated from Trenton State Teachers' college this spring. A delegation of three teachers headed by Morris Long asked the school board what it intends to do about the new state law requiring a $2,500 minimum salary. The delegation represented the Neptune local of the New Jersey Teachers' Federation and included Russell Coleman and Howard Peterson. Board President Joseph While said the board had no alternative but to abide by the law. The current minimum salary In Neptune schools is $2,200. Mr. Long then asked if the board Intended to Increase teachers' salaries $300 all along the line. He said the federation felt that would be the fair thing to do. Money Not Available Mr. White and District Clerk Alfred P. Todd explained that the blanket salary Increment would cost the township an additional $40,000, and the 1951 budget does not make that much money available. Mr. Todd and Mr. White added that the board would have no way of getting the money at this time, since its budget has already been approved. The board president went on to criticize the state for Im posing the salary regulaton without providing funds or a method of raising the money . The district clerk added that township schools, which had their state aid cut this year, will again have the aid reduced next year by $8,500. Mr. Long and Mr. Coleman laid that under the present salary schedule newcomers would receive the same pay, $2,500, as an Instructor, who has two yeara eperience. Mr. White said board members had considered the problem, and discussions would be continued. However, he added that no promise for salary Increments can be made under the present budget, because "we have no way of getting the money." After the delegation left. Mrt. 11. B. Speaker, Walnut street, a spectator, complained that teachers are campaigning for pay raises In classrooms. "I resent this," she declared. The board acepted the lower of two bids from the Automatic Heat Equipment company, Neptune, for the installaton of an nil burner at the Summerfleld school. The bid was $4:15. SQUAD GIVES OXYGEN LAVAI.I.ETTE. The Lavallette first aid squad gave oxygen to two four-year-old boys who were over come in a trailer Monday. A story Tuesday incorrectly said Dr. Irl Z Wentz gave the oxygen. Radio, Theater Merger Voted NEW YORK. (P) The planned merger of the American Broadcasting company with United Para mount Theaters, inc., nationwide movie theater chain, would mark the first entry Into network tele vision of a major branch of the film industry. The merger agreement, an nounced yesterday, will be achieved by an exchange of stock. The combine Is expected to boost considerably the theater chain's efforts to use more television In movie thea ters to stimulate film attendance. It also would give ABC't radio and television network new re sources in finances and potential talent. However, It does not assure ABC-TV a supply of new movies, as United Paramount does not produre films but operates some 600 motion picture houses. The merger agreement atill Is subject to ratification by the boards of directors and stockholders of the two companies and approval of the Federal Communications Commission, which regulates radio and television.
