B. 10-INDEPENDENT-PRESS-TELEGRAM Ut* JMlh dtM, ll.Jiy. !».., 4, 1tS» Europe's Starting to Speak Sinatra By JAMES BACON HpLLYWOOD OF) -- Frank by Prince Rainier and Princess Sinatra has come up with a simple language that replaces Frepch among some segments of the International set. It consists of a few key wonls such as gasser, Clyde, Sam, Charley and Fink. There are | more but those five will get'you understood in Beverly Hills, Monte Carlo, London, Rome--and any place else that Sinatra frequents. For instance, when Sophia Loren first set foot on U. S. soilj after a polar flight from Italy, she was asked if she enjoyed the flight. She replied: "It was a gasser." She had just finished a pic- turj with Sinatra.

"Whiplash," to be shot Cuba, ;is her first importan screen .role. I* 1955, she made the Yugi g'lav Olympic swimming teai and appeared in one meet i Austria. The rest of the tear returned home -- but T a n i convinced officials in the Ame: lean zone that she was a polit cal immigrant. She can't go back to Yugo Elawa but recently had a n unifn w,ith her family in Romi Grace, Frank put on one oJ the best shows of his career. He returned to his table with the Rainiers and Noel Coward, that master of precise speech, spoke up: "Frank, it was a gasser." The Rainiers and Somerset Maugham nodded agreement. Gasser, of course, is a syn. onym for great or sensational. Fink is its antonym.

"Waiters always answer to :he name 'Sam,'" says Frank, 'and any girl will turn around when you call her 'Charlie.'" Some people say that a girl will turn around if Sinatra yells "Irving". But the super-key word in :he Sinatra jargon is "Clyde" because it can stand for anything. At a place on the French Riviera run by a Corsican called "The Pirate," Frank said: "Nice Clyde you got here.' "The ment. Pirate" smiled agree Later Frank yelled: "Give u some more of that Clyde be cause our men ride at dawn.' "The Pirate" scurried back with casks of a local vino. Still later, Frank yelled: "Ge me my Clyde with the white rand on it." The hat check gir brought the familiar Sinatra straw. Then he got in his 350 lorsepower Clyde and drove back along the Clyde road tha the Romans built when Caesa conquered Gaul, a c o u n t r y vhich Sinatra has since re christened "Clyde."

He smokes between 12 and 38 two-dollar cigars a day. And, as an expert on high-class stogies. He has a few kind words to say about men who smoke cigars. "The cigar smoker," said the 39-year-old performer, "is the kind of a man who usually spends a little more time choos- ng his brandy or his wine. He may not have as many suits as other men, but he shops more carefully and enjoys them lore." Kovacs, 1 who is currently appearing in the film "Bell, Book and Candle," added: "I'm not talking about just ny cigar smoker, like the guy vhb grabs a cigar and sticks it n his mouth and chews on it. I mean the man who smokes good cigar. The man who smokes good cigars wants a more solid, fuller enjoyment of ife and gets more out of it." * * * * SITTING IN the den of his 7oldwatcr Canyon home, the brown-haired, mustachioed comedian smokes admitted that he more at home than By Earl Wilson MYRNA OF TV Miss Loy. NEW YORK -- Myrna Loy was lounging around in her lounging pants recently peering with half-opened eyes at a TV set on which a gal with a Mexican accent was wildlv cavorting. "I suppose there are such people," Miss Loy was humming to herself--when the phone rang. "Dear!" exclaimed a friend. "Did you know you .were on TV?" "No!" squealed 'What channel? I'm w a t c h ing s o m e y o u n g Mexican broad." 'Dear!" shouted t h e friend. "That's you!". Miss Loy recited this with a t i r e d laugh the other day. : 'I suddenly remembered I had made this picture at Columbia a long time ago -and forgotten about it. But the world won't let us forget!" Although she has avoided live TV--she is doing a show with George Gobel Jan. 13, however --Miss Loy is seeing herself become one of the great stars of TV due to the release of old lovies. "After they see me in those old ones," she said, "they generally say, 'Well, you've improved.' Or perhaps 'grown' is the word." * i FOIS MISS LOY, her whole movie life is unreeling before ler on TV--and she'll soon be seeing the c l i m a x , "Lonely- learts," at its premiere. "I've been typed so many times, and as I made this pic- .ure, I realized I've been typed again," she said. "You see, after Valentino discovered' me, I was an Oriental girl, and I didn't speak English for years," she remem- lered. "When talkies first came n, I was in The Desert Song' and that stuck for quite a while. Then for a while I was the vicked woman--without an ac- ent.

Producer Will Goetz wants to premiere ."They Came to Cordura" on the 99th anniversary of Pershing's birth. The late general of the armies was born in 1860 on a Missouri Farm. Goetz explains that a farm is not exactly the site for a movie premiere. The movie is based on Pershing's famous punitive action entino saw some photographs against the Mexican bandit, Pancho Villa. That was before Pershing became the leader of the A m e r i e a n Expeditionary Forces in World War I. Goetz says that he doesn't expect to get many answers from anyone the same age as Persh- but figures that there should be plenty of answers of me. I was invited to the studio to meet him and his wife, Natasha. They were very deal- to me, just wonderful.
