International today unveiled its answer to Marilyn Monroe in the person of a 19-year-old luscious starlet rechrlslened with the name Mamie. Mamie Van Doren, one of the first so named in the movies, possesses a (unpolitical face and figure but she undoubtedly coiifd make Russian males vote against Stalin. She has had her new name only . few days. Before that she was 7.aua Olnnder, who once lived on a farm near Sioux Palls, S. D., with her Swedish parents. She likes the name change. "Zaba sounded like a candy bar." she quipped. A studio spokesman, admitting the obvious publicity reasons for napilng her Mamie, cited another reason for the change. Her old name too nearly resembled Zsa Zsa from the Gabor of the same "ame. Miss Van Doren looks somewhat like a younger and rounder edi- lion of the glamorous Hungarian. Like Zsa Zsa and Monroe, she blurts out the intimacies of her personal life without batting an eye In the direction of the publicity hoys. "I'm not a natural blonde, you know." she whispered. "Even though I'm Scandinaviin I was brunette. Bu{ I was-a democratic brunette who decided It was tiYne for a change." She Is a protege of composer Jimmy McHugh, who has been giving her voice and dramatic lessons for'the last few years. He apparently felt she was ready to be discovered, for ho sent a telegram to Phil Benjamin, a CM casting director, to catch a little theater presentation of, "Come Back, Little S h e b a." Mamie played the role of the secy'coed. Benjamin was quickly convinced Richmond, who was In desperate „_,, ««.un.imu. wno was in desperate HOLLYWOOD ifl — Universal- nee( l of a flashy blonde lo sing ~>..ij,..i..ii WH:, ijuiciuy convinced Departmc and sent her to sea producer Teddecreases. ihe song-, "You Belong~(o Me" "in picture called "Drifting." Let Richmond go on from there: "It was last Saturday afternoon. - had spent n week Interviewing girl singers for this three-minute bit because it. Involves an important story point in the picture I wns tired, unhappy and then this girl walks In. "I put her under a week's contact, before she had said 10 word's We rehearsed her a few days, outfitted her In a slinky gown and made ready to shoot. The word got around the studio fast. Other girls, on the lot already were running her down—a good sign. "By the time the scene was shot I counted 85 male executives who had no business on the set — an even better sign. We signed her that ,night to a seven-year contract. Most important, we're changing Ihe name of the picture to •You Belong fo Me.' " Mamie freely gives out with details of her personal life: "I was married once for three weeks when I was 15 but I have no steady boy friends. I like men who eat beefsteaks for breakfast." Her busl measures 36 inches, par for Hollywood. She dislikes undetwear above (he waist. "I think, the respiratory part of - girl's body should be able to breathe," she explains. U. S.

BALTIMOKK MV—Tho 10.000-ion Liberty ship George A. Lnwson roamed the barnacle-Infested wat- crs of the Atlantic, the Gulf of Mexico mid Hie Caribbean toe ore lhan n year. But when she was raised In dry- dock yesterday, lier hull showed hardly a (race or binnacles—those sbngolng. crustacean hitchhikers that foul ship bottoms and cost the shipping industry an estimated 100 million dollars a year In lost time, nnd drydock charges. The stt'ht of tlie Law-son's smooth hull wns 'no surprise to Robert D. Spiers, a SH-yenr-old St. Petersburg, Pin., chemist, but It Rave him a. "great feelimf" nevertheless. To Spiers, it was proof Oml nn antl-foulfng compound ho developed really works. The compound known ns Dlanol, wns mixed with the paint that was applied to the Lnwson's hull Jan. 21, 1052. When (he Lawson was raised out of the water here yesterday, the only barnacles on her hull were In patches along the keel, where blocks that held the ship In place last year kept the painters from gettlnsr at the surface. "I believe," Spiers said, "that this Is the first time a commercial vessel has been able Jo stay in barnacle-Infested waters over a growth of fouling organisms." Th master of (he Lawson, Cnpt Andrew Vasaka, said the log of (Jio freighter would show no speed loss or increased fuel consumption toward the end of her year afloat. Usually toward the end of i year he said, barnacle formations cut l'/i to 3 knots off a ship's speed and send oil consumption up. The compound Is a mixture of organic chemicals In powder form and mixes easily with any regular paint. It remains ir, suspension In the paint and Is effective as lone as the paint lasts. Spiers said It paralyzes lh« nerves of the. barnacles or any other cold-blooded organisms that attach themselves to Ihe shlp'i bottom. They die and fall off. Influenza Hits PAPEETE.
