,9-12--INDEPENDENT-PRESS-TELEGRAM uofey. J«wry 4, W» NO SPIT ON MILLIKAN WALL Gielgud Says U. S. Halls re Too Biq and Clean Civil Defense Still Suspicion on Paper, Solons Say r« t By WILLIAM CLOVER EW YORK (AP)--On hiSfirst American tour, Sir John Gielgud, the distinguished B r i t i s h actor, formed two main impressions: Performing halls across the land are too big and clean, and students ask too many questions. (Sir John made no specific reference to Millikan High School auditorium, where he appeared Dec. 2 under auspices of Long Beach State College. However, the Millikan auditorium easily qualifies as big and clean.) Gielgud is in New York at jfi3? tailend of a three-month IS.QOO-mile trip around the Lfnited States in his one-man show, "Ages of Man." It's based upon the sonnets and plays of Shakespeare. . \ * * * 'lllS REFLECTIONS upon the theater circuit in this country are pronounced in a mood of, genteel candor rather than carping criticism. '"The types of halls where players must perform are very extraordinary," he o b s e r v e s. "They make me feel like a dot In. a vast ocean. ,"It is sad that nowhere in the; country is anyone building a real theater! There's been a pission since the '30s for de- sicns too big and wide, and without boxes that enable the circle to come around to the stage. The point is that they are a necessary link between audience and actors. "They are so scrupulously clean, but I prefer a dirty old theater with a bit of spit on the wall. Makes you feel here ns though you were performing on a baseball court (sic), and that you have to help baptize and humanize it all. - · "I'm thankful that on this WASHINGTON UB -- Eight /ears of effort and nearly a jalf billion dollars spent on civil defense since the Korean War have failed to prepare this country for an all-out nuclear attack. Reporting this Saturday, the Senate-House Committee on Defense Production said "mo- jilization to achieve preparedness for a nuclear attack on this country remains largely in the organizing, planning and development stage." SIB JOHN GIELGUD Too Many Questions of Arson in Dairy Blaze DAIRY. VALLEY -- County fire officials will investigate the possibility of arson in a fire that consumed a shed contain- clear world'war had diminished ing 350 tons of hay Saturday, essential public services. Other- ivise we could become a demoralized people." * · · · THE REPORT conceded that probabilities of an all-out nu- vhile those for limited or small- scale wars had increased. Even so, it urged that survival plans be carried out for any possible future e m e r g e n c y , IN A STATEMKN'T accompanying the report, Sen. A. Willis Robertson (D-Va), chairman, said, "We sti!! lack safeguards to guarantee national survival" and added: 'Eight years of effort have produced blueprints for survival. But blueprints alone won't save a single life, treat a single casualty, or feed a single citl zen. "We must be ready--as soon as possible after an attack to move food, medicine anc other survival items and to restore governmental authority business, industry and other lopulation and enabling country to retaliate." Train Kills 7 on Bus OSAKA, Japan CiPI -- A bus driver and six passengers were killed Saturday in a bus-train collision. Fourteen passengers the Osaka-Kyoto express train were injured. HARBOR VIEWS tour'I haven't been with other players. "With other p l a y e r s , of By LEE CRAIG The Chief of Naval Opera- ions in Washington is considering a proposal which would confine naval use of Long Beach's Pier E to the pier's west side. This would release Berths 122 and 123, on the southeast ection of the pier, to the har- ior department for use by com- nercial shipping. The plan, worked out here hrough 1 conferences" among io- al harbor and. naval officials, calls for a new lease giving the ' 18.825 acres on the pier's vest side. ,pend about 52,225,000 to ready he area, including construction of a wharf, asphalt paving and retaliation of .railroad .and gantry crane tracks.

But these huge stages make it almost impossible to work with other actors.", jpliv the present undertaking, Sjtrjjohn senses "the texture of triS' audience with the first three little items," and he is resigned to the fact that this "responsiveness is set all the way, and you can't: do much to change it without the help of other players." * * * * AS FOR the matter of curiosity-- . "After e , v e r y performance, students are always coming up and asking about the secrets of acting. I ask them if they are going to be actors, and they atejiys say 'No, we're going to reach.' In a f e w . years you Won't have anything but teachers around, it seems. ^'"Nevertheless it. is good, in that it is creating a tremendous theatrical interest. g-"But I am bored with all the mterest in the technique ol actuig.

""·Sir John shifts to analysis o] the "Ages of Man" which has proved a roaring boxoffice success. It has grossed $250,000 in 55 communities ranging from cities like Long Beach to such places as Downers Grove, 111. Costa Mesa, Calif., and Northfield, Minn. ?. The 54-year-old Londoner is rinding up the stint with bur-week e n g a g e m e n t 01 Sroadway, ; No man for long stage runs ic is forever serving some new heatrical challenge. j "What I've always wanted to jo was come to this countr n an American play," Sir John confesses. "I'd love to do that, but I've never been asked. -"It would be far more interesting that way than in coming over with a company of your own--sort of a new world to conquer." The star, so much of whose: fame rests upon his Shakes-1 pearean skills, is always looking for the untested. "I like to strike out with a new author. That way you feel you are going on ahead and helping the theater another decade." Navy May Release Pier Space for Use of Commercial Ships Such a lease would provide for much greater rental payment by the Navy,-in view of the construction cost involved, than it now makes to the department. The west side ol: the pier would never be available for commei'cial use because of its :iearness to the Naval Shipyard, Tom Thorley, the harbor's . as- listant general manager, points out. · , . » * MATSON NAVIGATION CO. and several of the Matsonia's officers have received Coast Guard commendation for their The harbor department would part in the first planned search and rescue communication between a merchant ship and a commercial airplane in the Pacific.

Now, with 95 per cent of the ships in the Pacific equipped to operate over a common radio- :elephone distress frequency of 2182 kilocycles, direct. two-way communication with planes becomes possible.
