Enter the lady with the purple hair. "Good morning, mother," Belita said. Mama was charming but her purple hair startled us. Mama said she had a purple rinse every time she had her hair washed. "It's quite fashionable." she said. "I'm going out to lunch, darling" mama said. Exit Mama. Enter Bobby Specht. skating star of "The Iee-Capades," and Belita's boy friend.

Our lunch date was at a Beverly HilLs cafe. As we walked out the door, Belita spotted half a dozen unmailed letters on the table.

Clothes Are Girl's Best Investment, Lois Collier Says HOLLYWOOD Clothes are a girl's best investment, says petite actress Lois Collier, who admits she puts most of her earnings on her back and is proud of it. Her blue eyes flashing. Miss Collier condoner. even encouraged, what is generally criticized as a feminine sin. "A good appearance is money in the bank to a girl, whether she's an actress ambitious to get ahead, like myself, or a stenographer trying to land a better job," she insisted. The pert, brunette actress, becomingly attired in a tailored suit for her role of a San Francisco school teacher in Universal's "The Crimson Canary." was a visual and very attractive picture of her convictions. "What's the use of a girl putting her money in storage if it means sacrificing her appearance?" she inquired. "When she's young and starting out on a career, she owes it to herself to look as smart and well-eroomed as her income will allow. She can save her money later, but never to the extent of letting herself get drab or frumpy." Lois admitted she was a spendthrift on clothes. To prove it. she confided she has an extensive ward-rob of "date" dresses. tailored street wear and sports outfits, topped by a Persian lamb coat, which she just bought herself as a birth-dav present, and 20 hats. Hats are a subject on which she waxes eloquent and extravagant She adores them, and unlike most women, doesn't buy them just when she needs a lift in spirits. She buys them all the time. Pillboxes, sailors and cartwheels. "But I don't wear fruit salad on my head." she emphasized. "I wouldn't be caught at a dogfight in one of those silly things'" Being an "itsy-bitsy" among Hollywood actresses, only five foot, one inch tall and weighing 98 pounds. Lois goes easy on frills and gewgaws. "The fewer the better for us small girls." she said. "When we accent our cuteness with too much trimming or jewelry, we just look coy and corny. Short girls should look feminine, not fussy."

"Shiek." has been selected as Alan Ladd's mount for the forthcoming Technicolor production. "California." Although Ladd already is an expert rider, he has begun nightly rides at Griffith Park, near his Los Feliz home, where the studio has stabled the horse. His current role in "Calcutta" precludes daytime riding. Help Wanted Brian Donlevy trimmed the hedge at his home the other day when he was not needed for "The Trouble with Women".

She was told that similar appeals were being mailed to Bette Davis. Adele Jergens, Nina Foch, Ann Sheridan and many others. "Japs don't faze us. but we're frankly panicked at the thought supported by every mail delivery that all the prettv girls are being picked off by the drastically limited number of men at home. We don't have a chance writh them," the communication complained. It came from members of a bomber command stationed on Saipan and bore the signature of S Sgt. Charles Kausel and 12 fellow mourners. Sgt. Kausel said he was editor of a mimeographed newspaper and that the project was suggested by its soldier readers. The request brought a prompt reply from Miss Keyes. who took time out from Technicolor cameras filming "Renegades" at Columbia to reassure the soldiers. "I can't speak for the other girls in Hollywood." she wrote Sgt. Kausel on V-mail form. "But I have every intention of doing what you suggest." Miss Keyes. incidentally, is as good as her word.

"I think many other girls have the same idea I do." she wrote the soldiers. "We know that many of the best 'catches' are still overseas, and don't think the girls have forgotten. So. your mails to the contrary, rest assured that many of us are going to wait." tractive blonde. Marie was given the job which affords her a new screen chance. As Baby Marie, the moppet was the darling of millions of fans toward the end of the silent film era. When she grew up she dropped out of pictures. Recently she got the urge to resume her Hollywood career and started at the bottom of the ladder as an extra. She met la Hutton on a recent picture and they became friends, with Betyt asking for her as a stand-in.
