PAGE 6 THE TIPTON DAILY TRIBUNE Thursdoy, Dec. 3, 1964 IN HOLLYWOOD By VERNON SCOTT j '• -J' •«''' • . UPI Hollywood Correspondent HOLLYWOOD" (UP!)"' — 'Is Elvis -Presley a jinx r for his leading ladies? That question will never rank with "What has God wrought?" or "To be, or not to be?" But it is of passing interest to young actresses , who co-star with Mr. Presley. Remember that old saying, "They're never the same once they play Notre Dame." Well, the same might be said for cuties co-starring with the Tennessee terror. A Presley movie is box office insurance. But the picture must show a great many close-ups of Elvis and feature him in not less than a dozen songs. When • the singing and close-ups are over there isn't much cellulois left for his leading lady. Sure, she sneaks into a few frames, but they are generally love scenes with Elvis. Now comes a curvaceous English beauty—Jocelyn Lane—who co-stars with Mr. .Presley in "Tickle Me" and who hopes to change all that. Most Ladies Indistinct "I've never noticed his lead ing ladies before," said Jocelyn in a dark corner of the Hollywood Brown Derby. "They were so indistinct except for Ann- WINNER OF OUR Open House Door Prize Mrs.Max Burqan RR Tetersburg Thank you all for participating IN OUR OPEN HOUSE COOPERS' HOME FURNISHINGS TIPTON Margret and Juliet Prowse who were rather well known. "The Presley jinx is entirely the faujt of the - girls who work with him.. I've found it a plea sure to be his leading lady." M Like most of the others, Jocelyn finds it a pleasure to date Elvis after working hours, : *oo. She blushed prettily and admitted that she and Mr. Presley were after-hours companions. Jocelyn is an interesting girl, born in Vienna of a Russian mother and an English father, she was raised in New Rochelle, N. Y., educated in London, and is "an English citizen. < She looks amazingly like Brigitte Bardot, both facially and, er.. .well, in silhouette. Jocelyn's role • in the Allied Artists production enables her to wear a bikini which is something she does very well. It is unlikely her scenes in that particular costume will end up on the cutting room floor—not even for a Presley buck-and-wing- ivith-guitar. Policy Makes Sense "They say -Elvis rarely' appears with an established star as a leading lady," Jocelyn-the- jinx-breaker said. "It makes sense. v "Elvis' girls have to be young and it's difficult to find established stars in their teens or early 20s. I'm 24." ~ One of Jocelyn's avocations is astrology. _ She has studied the subjects for years and now casts horoscopes for her friends. So far she hasn't charted the moon and stars for Elvis. : "I've cast my own horoscope," she announced. "I do it all the time. And I must say the future looks very bright for ne. I have a contract with Universal Studios." Jocelyn, however, admitted hat she hadn't horoscoped her chances of shattering the Presley jinx — but she's thinking about it: Bit Parts: Carroll Baker has signed a new deal with Producer Joe Levine that could bring her $5 million in the next few vears. . .John Cassavetes and Chester Morris have signed for a segment of the Bob Hope television series ...

FOREIGN NEWS COMMENTARY By PHIL NEWSOM UPI' Foreign News Analyst The agonies • of those who died, of the fortunate ones who were saved and of those who now have been left 'behind came forth all too clearly in the accounts of the joint U.S. - Belgian rescue mission to the Congo. And it becomes the more unfortunate that this mercy mission how should fall into the old cold war pattern. The same U.S. planes which air-lifted the Belgian paratroopers into Stanleyville and Paulis in rebel-held.

Want Ads Pay I"' Style, size, savings, selection Left behind when the rescue mission was declared concluded were an estimated 900 foreign ers still in Simba hands, their position even more precarious now than before. For the propagandists of Moscow and Peking, the operation was tailor-made. They ignored the lives at sjake and denounced the mission as a pretext to re-establish Western imperialism in the Congo. Instrument of Policy Communist regimes make short work of any demonstra tion against themselves but mob action can also.be an instru ment of policy. Therefore it was no surprise when mobs attacked the U.S Embassy in Moscow, and U.S, legations in Prague and Sofia. In Cairo,' a mob made up mostly of African students burned the U.S. Embassy library. In Algeria, President Ahmed Ben Bella promised more arras for the Simbas and even volunteers. But amid the general • uproar which went up from black Africa, there were dissenting voices, and the protest themselves were based not so much on communism but upon black African nationalism. A voice of powerful dissent came from Nigeria whose Foreign Minister Jaja Wachuka praised the U.S.-Belgian action and said that in a similar situation Nigeria also would attempt to protect its citizens. Outcry Caused Concern In the United Sttaes, t here also were doubts. But the doubts were not concerned over the righteousness of the action but whether it had been stopped too soon, perhaps because of undue concern over the outcry it aroused. Thus reaction fell into three categories—praise in the .West, the cynical protests of Moscow and Peking each of whom sought to turn it to their own ends, and the indignation of Africa based mostly on a widespread hate of Congolese Premier Moise Tshombe. Tshombe, as president of an 'The size is full. The selection, large. The style, obvious. The savings? Fantastic.

' • • i Science Is Studying Sixth Sense' On The Lighter Side WASHINGTON (UPI) — Not so long ago I filed a.lreport on "monobathroomosis" 'which is an inferiority complex that springs from having j only ope bathroom in a single family dwelling. Noting the growth j of bathrooms as a status symbol in this country, I suggested that if we failed to achieve President Johnson's dream of a "Great Society," we at least would have a society that was well tubbed. I also pointed out' that increased emphasis on'bathroom multiplicity was being accompanied by a rising interest in bathroom decor, including jeweled faucets and high-style fixtures. Frankly, thai report was based more on my own impressions than on hard and cold facts. But now I find my observations confirmed by no less an authority than the Supply House Times, which is described as the "Prestige Magazine" of the plumbing industry. Added Attractions The Times says that "the biggest news for the trade this year is the boom in | decorated plumbing fixtures and ornate fittings." It credits this trend with helping the industry begin to emerge from the 1 , financial doldrums. I Previously, the ! magazine says, manufacturers! "offered too many products ofj the same general type and size that performed the same function." Maybe so, but I rather doubt that goldplating a few knobs and handles, or changing the shape of'tubs and basins, is go- (EDITOR'S NOTE: This,is,the fourth of five dispr.tches on extra-tensory perception by the UPl's national reporter. It deals with the question: Is there such a thing as mind over matter?) ; By HARRY FERGUSON United Press International Psychokinesis is a scientific term relating to the question of whether there is such a thing as mind over matter. One test is whether you can roll dice and make the numbers come up the way you desire. Steady now, you gamblers. So far the answer is neither yes nor no. Experiments in the parasychology laboratory at Duke University have shown that certain "people can make the dice behave better than would be expected by the laws of chance.' But Duke has no intention of expanding its curriculum to include the theory and practice of rolling seven' consecutive sevens or, if your point is four, making it the hard way with-two deuces. So far as dice are concerned [.yoUf bejieve in mind over matter, that supports your hypothesis that some member of the Hermann family possessed unusual mental powers and was using them destructively. The boy James was the member of the family that interested the investigators because he was most often present in the house when things began moving and flying. James was examined and cross-examined by his father, the police and Pratt. Once the boy burst into tears. and his mother complained that the father was being too hard on him. Another possibility that was carefully examined was that all members' of* the family, were collaborating in a hoax and giving false testimony about the puzzling incidents. Pratt dismissed that for the excellent reason that five incidents occurred while either he or his assistant from Duke was in the house. This was his conclusion: ' "No clues have been found to' indicate either simple or skilled trickery, and some of the the-facts are -inconclusive. But/events which took place in the n'g to solve the industry's main problem, which is longevity. As the Times points out, the average bathtub in the United States is 34 years old. Assuming that the tub owners can be persuaded to remodel their bathrooms, what's to keep them from wiating another 34 years before the next changeover? It seems to me that the way to start the bathroom plumbing industry really booming is to develop disposable fixtures. Such an innovation is not as unrealistic as some people might think. . Disposable Tub I read recently that hospitals are'switching more and more to disposable equipment. They are finding it cheaper to replace certain items after initial use than to prepare them for re-use. Among the 50 or more disposable items presently available are hypodermic needles, syringes, uniforms, surgical gloves, transfusion tubes and bedpans. If the hospital supply industry can develop a disposable papier rnache bedpan that .costs but 4 cents, wliy can't the bathroom plumbing industry provide us with disposable tubs, basins and other accouterments? After taking a bath, for instance, we would pull the plug and the water would' run down the drain, followed by the tub. With -disposal fixtures, we could redecorate the; bathroom after every shower. And "mon obathroomosis" - would disappear overnight. there was nothing inconclusive about the strange events which occurred in the home of Mr. and Mrs. James M. Hermann at Seaford, Long Island, N.Y. It provided an excellent chance to study the theories of psychoki nesis, and Jw Gaither Pratt, who made on-the-spot investigations in behalf of the Duke laboratory, reported iti detail on it in his study called "Parapsychology." . Strange Actions Occur For five .weeks in 1958 the Hermann family lived in confu sion and terror. A figurine suddenly flew through the.air to ward a television set, a bottle of ink sailed out of one room, through the door of another and spilled on the rug. A plaster statue of the Virgin Mary, 16 inches high, leaped from one dresser to another. A bottle of shampoo walked across a bathroom shelf. . There were 67 of these incidents between Feb. 3 and March. 10 when they ceased. Visitors to the house frequently found Mrs. Hermann and her two young children, James and Lucille, in tears. Hermann did what any sensible man would do. He called the police. Detective Joseph Tozzi responded, thoroughly questioned all. members of the family and examined the house for hidden wires and other devices of trickery. But when things started sailing through the air while he was in the house, Tozzi realized he was up against something not covered in the manual of police procedure. That was when -Pratt moved in. Not A Hoax The question, of course, was whether this was a case of psy chokinesis — mind oier matter. Was one of the four persons in the house using, his mind, consciously or unconcsciously, to cause confusion and destruction? Or had the detective'been bamboozled because he didn't know what to look for and where? Pratt started out by eliminating 50 of the .67 incidents on the grounds that they could have been done by trickery. He.„ . . does not. contend they we re I C 0 ™,™ 5510 " j° consider various Hermann home cannot be explained, even assuming that the necessary skills and motives for trickery existed. But, as far as can be determined, there were no motives for a family hoax and no evidence that James possessed the skills" to carry out some of the complex occurrences." ' Many Similar.Cases So where does that leave us? Obviously, with the clear implication that there is enough evidence of mind over matter to justify scientists to push ahead with their studies. The Hermann case was not the first such one reported and investigated nor will it be the last. About 500 such cases have been recorded and there is only one thin thread that binds many of them together. There is a tendency for such incidents to occur where -some person is at thresh-hold of adolescence — in the case of the Hermanns, it was James. So we have a puzzle without a solution, a riddle without an answer. Explorers to the moon know where they are going and can see where they will land. No telescope ' affords us even one small glimpse into the mysteries of the mind. J. Gaither -P^-att says you should visit a bowling alley if - ydu want to see people trying to exert mind over matter. As soon as they release the ball, they begin twisting and turning in an attempt to guide it straight downithe alley. This ' is known as "putting on "The body English," and it is nothing more than muscles responding to commands from the brain in an attempt to guide something that has passed from our physical control.
