Incidentally, that gag wasn't in the script. Director Eddie Cline wanted to cheer.up Fields and the whole company one day, so he "had built a sort of super-De Mille palanquin, complete with rocking chair, fringed umbrella and a nuge megaphone lettered "A PISMO CLAM-DIRECTOR." The comedian took it big. Borne to the set by four prop men, he got so many laughs from the company thai the,'.'stunt; was worked into' the picture. • Production went smoothly this lime, though ' Fields never once spcke a. line as it was written. Only thing he balked at was walloping a gal, even though the situ- alien was comic.. He srad. "I have kicked doga u. pictures, and I have 'kicked babies m pictures. But never, sir, have I insulted a woman!" ' North Carolina Births Rise RALEIGH, N. C. (UP)—North Carolina's birth rate is on the rise. The state board of health's division of vital statistics reports 60,537 births in the state for the first nine months of this year, a gain of 891 over the tota] of 59,646 for the same period in 1939. INO state in the Union ever has had a woman as lieutenant-governor. C ARD OF THANKS We wish to thank, all of those who so kindly contributed to the Greek War Relief Fund.

NEA Service Staff Correspondent HOLLYWOOD, Dec. 6.— Supplementary reports: If anybody has been wondering about the moom- .pitcher • progress of Stash Clem-' enta, the Brooklyn urchin with the galvanized- gall. I'm happy to report, that he's doing fine and probably will end up as a producer if he sticks around. -' J ';SI;asli has .grown so fond of most members of < the cast- and crew 'of "Tali, Dark and ,V Hansome" that he doesn't cheat 'ern at checkers •my more — not even in maintenance of his ciainl to the title of -hampeen ol WUliamsboig and Culver City; And although he still won't confess, any special thrill in ina a movie actor, there arc in- caiions .Stash is relishing his job. Only. players of some impor-r fcance" are assigned stand-ins, and Mr,?, Clements has one whom Fields, I've only now got around to finding cut about his peculiar footwear—the. buttoned shoes with no heels. He says he began wearing them when he was a juggler, for better balance and because he sometimes caught a trouser cufT on a heel when he did the trick of tossing balls under a raised knee. The fiat-soled shoes are responsible for Fields' duck-waddle. He w.on't wear any other kind, whatever his rcle or costume. They couldn't even get him into fancy field boots for a satirical movie- Director sequence in : 'The Bank MISERY hep regards with .-^uspicicn and re- semment. .At first... he ; figured -the stand-in . wa,s, an undersLudy who scmeho-wv V migiU '.- '•;. supplant''^- -(hmp •'You can fire dat kid; ! he.iold the director.
