WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 1940 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) -COURIER NEWS m Movie''Actor Registers' 1 I Will Enable U. S. To Impress Aliens With Democracy's Good Points star Charles Boyrr, as ho under the • -alien registration law, . .was. impressed ; the potential' value of " t lie 'procedure in. tii« fight-. "for' freedom. "In Hollywood" today is devoted <c an exclusive presentation of his views.", . *. *.'*. , BY CHARLES BOYEIt Written for Courier News and NEA Service HOIXYWOOD. Nov. 20.— Today [Paris is a destroyed city. No stones have been dislodged the Arc de Triomphe. The boulevards look the same. I Noire Dame .still dreams in the misty .sunshine with the pigeons flying around the towers, but. just the same,.. to -those who love her, (Paris has been destroyed. For what is a city except the (spirit of its • people? It has taken centuries to build up that spirit. How long will it take to restore I faith and joy and hope to a. people from whom they have* been [taken so tragically? I remember, when I was in j Paris just before- the war, I heard (people talking confidently, as if (nothing could possibly happen to (them. They were not indifferent. (They simply did not realize their danger. ". _ , JBIIND ~'" (TO DANGER Now, when I hear Americans (talking in' the same way, in the [very same words even, I find my[self shuddering. Americans should [wake up to the preciousness of (their democratic heritage. But I , think no one wants to [believe in dangers or face reality [until he has to. That is a weak- mess of human nature, and like jail our human weaknesses, the [dictators use it against us. They [even take the mistakes and short- Comings of democracy and make (weapons of them to destroy free- |dom. Dictators fight with words as (well as guns. That is why it is [so gratifying to see that the alien [registration, now. being conducted [by' the Department of Justice (through the United States post' [office, is being handled like a^ [matter between host and guests, j The dictators are pouring oucj •propaganda intended to causes [suspicion and hostility between! [the '• different racial groups in the' [United States.. They would like to [drive a . wedge between Americans [and their alien visitors, but the [courteous treatment Uncle Sam is [giving aliens when they come to [post offices to register is making [friends of them instead of possible members of the fifth column. (CONFUSED ALIENS (BIGGEST THREAT One of the weaknesses ' of • Amer- lican democracy is the lack of understanding so many foreign-born Americans seem to have of what Charles Boyer is fingerprinted Ly a clerk at Hollywood post office as part of alien registration procedure. Looking OH is his wife, I'at Paterscn. 'Danceteria' Goes Gaily On, Spans Year on Broadway Now fins been a pei phobiu 01' Mr. Decker. "I'm strictly tillergic to waiters or bus boys'pi' the 'hoveriuss' type," he ijjiid. "Vou know (lie kind I mean, thai don't base their uuen- ! lion on 1'unil.shing good .service I but continually harass the cas- i toiners by removing hnli'-filled glasses. You'll never suffer that h«re; in fuut, you woa'i even find any waiters." Wliile holding his first job in 1921, Decker went 10 evening school lo learn English. Then he opened a dancing .studio in uptown 'New YorK, which he operated until 1927. In 1933, ui'itr spending tin- intervening year.s in Hie restaurant business, . he started the. Empire Ballroom. Kniieil l)ime-a-l>iuice "Thai, loo, looked like a I'ool- hardy move," Decker 1 said. "Because we were opposite Roselaml, one or the city's most 1'iourishiiig dance palace.s. I induced prices and eliminated, the dime-u-dance charge. It didn't hike' long''for •the crowds to arrive." He later changed the Empire into the Congress Cult, but went broke in 1935 when his waiters went on .strike on New Year's Eve. Decker joined the ranks ol the employed again when he agreed to take one of West 52nd Street's big Chinese 1 'restaurants out of the red. Employing some drastic re- furnishings and his own flair for the business, he became a success again. Married to a native Hungarian, a friend of his school days, Decker resides modestly in Manhattan but is never far from the nightly hurly- burly at his "night club." "People wonder at my success," he said. "I don't any more. I believe in my business and have become convinced that's half the battle." .NEW YORK (UP)—Unique enterprise on a street literally packed with versatile competitors, Richard M. Decker's Times Square "dance-, teria" shortly celebrates its first year of supplying night club glamour to New York City's subway social register at bargain prices. No ermine wraps lend prestige democracy is doing and can do for them. I talk to many of them and they seem to be confused about the American way of life which nobody has fully explained to them. The leaders of .the totalitarian states know of their ignorance and trade on it by pouring propaganda in their ears, telling them that democracy can do nothing for them. I think these bewildered aliens and naturalized citizens are more dangerous to the inner defense of ^America than the few subversive agents of foreign governments who may possibly be here. For this reason I hope that the registration of aliens, which continues untU December 26 of this year. will furnish the United States . government, with the information it need" to understand some of the problems of the nou- citfzen in -this country, and to help make him more aware of the blessings of democracy. Knowledge of all the facts is esssntial to defense as many countries have found out too late' And the defense of America is the most important job in the world today for all of us who love freedom,, whether we are citizens' : or aliens. .. to Decker's "cloakrooms and few if any •debutantes sit at the ringside tables, but well over half a million of New York's working people have contributed to the success of his self-service nightclub. The 41-year-old Decker arrived in this country 19 years ago and from an S8-a-week automobile painter he has risen, albeit over several bumps, to the proprietorship of, as far as he knows, the world's only combination restaurant, cafeteria, night club and amusement center. Three Dance Floors Showmen and other restaurateurs predicted little success for the Decker enterprise at its Nov. 21, 1939, opening, but the dance- teria which _at first glance .seems like a haven for all America's jitterbugs, has' just installed its third dance floor. •'Ah, those dancers!" And the slightly paunchy Decker smiled. "They - hop, they skip, they run- but how they jump! They splinter my floors to pieces, but I like it." Stenographers, clerks, bookkeepers, office boys and all those who can't afford the splendor of Broadway's more imposing night clubs, nightly pour into what was originally termed "Decker's. Folly," and dance, from 5 p.m. to 3 a.m. to the music of three orchestras for a nominal. charge of 75 cents. The admission price-may be spent on food, wines or beer-and soft drinks. Dancers may stay as long as they like. ; Reveals Pet Phobia ..Basis for his five-and-dime bistro PAGE THREE elective Serviee (Editor's Note; Below is pub- htui n list of • rP8lsirnnt.s .is they are s^ut que.stianrmirns by Mississippi county's ttnw draft boards, Earlier groups havt! al- svady been'•• published in their order number and oUim will follow.) FUNNY BUSINESS France Not to Attempt South American Flying VICHY .(UP)—The French government, has decided against trying to revive the Air France-South American airmail for the time being. Interrupted last May when the blitzkrieg began, the service was formerly bi-weekly. Officials explained that Italy and Germany have pooled their interests in. a South American airmail service which is now operating and they would resent the reestablishment of a rival French line. Under terms of the armistice conventions, they would have to give their consent before a French line could function. Here's Top Cage Team GUNNISON, v Colo.
