' In this situation, it is essential that- someolx-ly go to woik on the long-rmnjc problem, and K,\o is nssuiulng that responsibility at iti forthcoming Washington inceting'. Tills action i s bcin taken lit the request of the United Nations Assembly which met in Ixjutlon las* winter. There was .some feeling aiikmg the j-j p..\o member eoun- Iries that no action should be taken until the 1EH7 crops were harvested. Hut the world food crisis is now believed to be so acute that delaying action for a year would be disastrous. No effort will bo made by KAO <o deal with this year's fcxxf stior'- period, most countries were back on a more or less self-sustnining basis, the danger of ovur-prodiic- UOH anil a resulting collapse in food price levels would be great.

Then it can advise individual countries on action that can be taken to avoid disaster. The Food and Agriculture Organization itself "may prove to be toi> unwieldy to take over the problems of world food allocations. Consideration is'being given, however, lo the idea of seUinj; up commissions or corporations which might do the necessary International trading in fertilizers, farin machinery, -feed and livestock, and human foodstuffs. * A WHOUYW0007 1!Y KKSK1NK JOHNSON NEA Star Correspondent HOLLYWOOD, May 1C. (NBA) — Our nomination ror the'best acting ;>erfonnaiice of the week goes to- Jay to Miss Joan BenneU. Whlla the camera's inquisitive eyes peeked through a tent flap, Jpan Ipok- t'rt "a llltle like after" fpr a fleet' ing shot in the picture, "The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber." 11 was Director zoJtan Korda'i' utea, we must report, but Joan Col- lowed through like a Bnrrymore. Aftei- nil, looking "a little lik e after" is quite a irick. The movie is about a* African lion-liunl, based on a 22-page short story by Ernest Hemingway. Joan and her husband (Robert Preston) o hunting lions, with a Jiaiidsomc devil named Gregory peck as thelv guide. It isn't long before Joan, a lady with a roving eye, finds Peck much more exciting than lions. (Hollywood has to have a triangle, even In darkest Africa.) So one night Joan unzips her tent flap and mos- rjuilo i Wli'ig. tiptoes past her sleeping husband, ami visits Pcci in his tent. Joan had just returned from her nocturnal call, and Director Korda was filming the scene in which she sneaks buck to her tent unct climbs back into bed, unmindful that husband Preston had awakened and knew what was goin<; on nil the time. \ PUKTTY . ritOBLEM Joan wondered just hq«' she ihould look as the camera followed her back to bed. Director Kordii thought for a while and then said: "I think Joan should just look a little like after." So, Joan looked- "a little Ilk* after," thereby winning our hanil- iiajlpn for the best Acting perforw iincc' Of the iveek. •. "The short Happy Life of Frftp- cis Maeomber"—and you 1 can I bet the title will be changed—Is Ingu-nys best short story, ffcfi Benedict.Bpgcaus bought tji rights for $85,000. 'Hie lionilHinling sequences will be filmed near Rosarita Beach, In Mexico, about 50 miles below §ai> Tlie company is taking 'along a- big rubber buffalo, which 'Pr'eSt&n". has to "bhool." But Preston.him- self is the biggest game OH flu; hunt. Joan shoots him" (.ween th e eyes with a hlgh-pdwr' ered rifle and stands trial for" Ills murder. As you can see, it's '•» mighty exciting plot. PECK HAS THREE BOSSES While' Joan was looking "a lii- tlc like after," we sat on the set's sidelines and talke<| to Peck. Threj studios. Fox.'• M-G-M. and David O. Selznick, share his contract 1 now. He said, his next picture probably W ni be based on the life 6f I the traitor Benedict Arnold. "Selznick sees me as' a he:ivy,_" he said, "but after .'Duel .'in * [lie Sun' I don't thing I .ever wnnt-'.'to play another heel." i- J . Peck, along with everyone-else in Hollywood, is ' amazed • at' SelS- nick's million-dollar "Duel in- : .the Sun" publicity campaign. The 6th> er day, Peck said. Selznlck's publicity boss, Paul MacNainara.- was called down by the manager of tlia RKO-Pathe studio.
