So it is well foi Mrs Roosevelt to bring up the subject of wand-waving.

In Hollywood BY EKSKINE JOHNSON NEA Staff Correspondent Dinah Shore, the'red-hiiired Tennes^'canary, went; to 'court the other ,d«y;'wllh her. soldier husband, 1 .Cplr George ^Montgo'mcrjv'to end the "confusion" between tlieir screen niicl private lives by legally adopting his'prpfesslorinl name. .' Jt< yvns George ' Letz -whin he rnarrie'd Dinah' a year ago. When hc.legally adopted 'Qeo'rgc•'• Montgomery,' Dlnnh hnd lo adopt it, too. Her real name is Prances Hose Shore. She legally adopted Dinah several years ngo. ' ." ' ' ; Rather confusing, as you can see It was a little !ale though, in trying to end "contusion." Dinah Shore Montgomery confessed today. . •"I've been in a state of confusion for yeahs," she drawled in a rich southern accent oi-er n -cup of cpllce inline den of (he Mont- gamcrys' 'Beverly Hills 'home! " : "Beautiful confusion," Corporal ^"'somery added, "putttng his arm around Dinah's waist. "Did we-iiU'cver tell you how I knew Go'ge here a long lime before I ever met" him?" : ' • • Our Boarding House with Moj. Hoople OutOur Way '"ByTfwiilia^ 'You didn't know me," George grinned. "You just saw me in a movie." '"'The Cowboy and the Blonde,'" Dinah said. "I was singing buck east at a thcaluh and I didn't have any place to go between shows. I saw that movie at lenst tluittv times. It was wonduhful." But we hadn't heard nothlu' yet Dinah snid. "Od'gc poposecl to me uftuli we were married," she said. It. was the mailman's fault," George chuckled. "QUESTION" 3 WEKKS LATE "Yes, sir-e-e-e," Dinah said.

"Beautiful contusion," George said, tightening his grip around he waist. 1 "Dce-lightful confusion," Dinah Shore said. Not to mention, of course, the time Montgomery went lo p Gershwin concert and Dinah sang But they didn't meet. And abonl the Henry Fonilns. who kept telling £>Innh about George and George ijabout Dinah. j,,, B.ut they didn't meet. ''•Then one night Dinah was singing at the Hollywood Canteen and George was n biisboy and they finally met. There's no doubt that Dinah and Corporal Montgomery, now stationed in Los Angeles, .ire Hollywood's N6. 1 love birds. GETTING FAN MAIL A lot of G, l.'s besides Montgomery think Dinah Shore is wonderful She's receiving thousands ol love letters of appreciation ever since visiting.the weslcrn front in En- rope. The G. l.'s will see her ne\v movie, International's "Belle of the Yukon." It will probably play to S R. O. when it hiU Paris and London.

It look me a few moments of figuring to realize I'd never seen her in a hat with a veil before. Becoming self-conscious she pulled at her long black gloves, then straightened her silver fox neckpiece. "Don't look at me like lhat! I'm not a ghost, Leo." I sat astride one of the arms of the chair, facing hers and tried to. pull myself together. This wasn't in the cards. When you've adjusted yolirselt to someone coing out of. your life you can't swjlch back to tlie former relationship just like that. I'd burned bridges behind me. "Well," she continued, "aren't you glad to see me?" "Sure I'm glad to see you," I Ked. "And surprised." What the hell did she want from me, anyhbvj? 'Looking at her from close quarters I saw it wasn't only the veil that made her seem different. There was something else that I couldn't put my finger on. "Let's go up to your place," she suggested. The-strain between us didn't wear off, even after she'd removed her.hat and. fur,' and had flopped down on the divan. "A drink?" I suggested. She nodded.
