MONDAY EVENING, SEPTEMBER 28, 1942 THE OGDEN STANDARD-EXAMINER in in JLAYWRIGHTS ·CAPITALIZING ON NEWCOMERS Young Actresses Get Breaks in Current Productions By MARK BAKBON NEW YORK, Sept. 28, (Wide ~ World) -- Broadway playwrights often travel in trends and this season they have, with considerable profit to themselves and to ambitious young actresses, been concentrating upon the younger generation of the female sex. Currently popular now, among the younger actresses who were heretofore comparatively unknown, are Gwen Anderson in "Janie," Peggy Knudsen in "My Sister Eileen," Dorothy McGuire Claudia," and Uta Hagen Vickie." All are young actresses with the freshness of a girl just entering college, and all four have the promise of acting ability which assures Broadway audiences that there is an able supply of leading ladies coming up for rialto stardom. Miss Hagen, who plays the role of a woman semi-military volunteer in "Vickie," of course is a bit advanced from the stage of being a beginner because she has previously played in several theater guild productions in which she understudied Lynn Fontanne and other stage stars that gave her valuable experience. Now, in "Vickie," she is both romantic and comic in this farce about civilians who are mixed up in the war effort. Gwen Anderson has a role in Brock Pember ton's new comedy production, "Janie," which is the sort of part which only young actresses inherit when they are in line for a Cinderella role. Miss Anderson, who is 21 and comes from Des Moines, had only played some parts in Santa Monica, Calif., and at Pasadena, when she came to and started looking for that would be good for this unknown young actress. Well, she got the best of the season for an unknown young actress and Pemberton has one of the major of his many hits on Broadway. Miss Anderson, who has brown hair and an engaging smile, shows in "Janie" that she has more than acting ability; that she is also an accomplished pianist. Her mother taught her that for she was a concert pianist before she was mar- Here's Diana Barrymore and Mate Jerkin Suit DESERT HONEYMOON -- After driving 250 miles following her day's work at a Hollywood studio, Diana Barrymore walks with her husband oi six weeks. Bramwell Fletcher, on desert where he acts in war picture. Note From Uncle Sam's Niece By TAMARA ANDREEVA ' . By MAY MANN' HOLLYWOOD--To lunch with Diana Barrymore, daughter of the late John Barrymore. Diana is doing right well on her own. Her director, Tim Whelan, who discovered Vivian Leigh and so many other great' stars, says, without exception Miss Barrymore has more talent than any girl'he's ever known. Diana doesn't worry about glamour nor diets nor curves. Like Bette Davis she stresses characterization. For lunch Diana dipped into a chicken sandwich, with an added dish of mayonaise on the side. Most of her education was acquired in Europe. There was a time in her life in Paris--when she was broke --and had to cable frantically for money. From mother of course. Mother is Michaele Strange, the noted authoress and socialite. Diana's current thrill, outside of her bridegroom, Bramwell Fletcher, is her new mink coat. "Anything is possible when you're in the movies," she said. A tour about the Universal lot--· and Anne Gwynne, all dressed in western garb--came floating out of a sound stage. Anne volunteered to walk with us. Her romance with Tom Keene, the western star, is off she admitted. The boy of her heart now days is in the service. He's Bob Ross. Anne plays the sec'ond lead in "Sin Town"--with Constance Bennett. Deanna Durbin, whom we noted lunching alone in the commissary, drove by. She looks lonely. And no wonder -- her husband, Vaughan Paul, has been in the service since April. Deanna lives in their _ big honeymoon house--with her sister and brother-in-law for company. Soon, if gas rationing comes in, she'll have to move. For the nearest bus service is two miles.

"God, however, tells us by name. But does He? The universe is so vast, for we know of a star six quintillian miles away. We are so small, the earth beneath our feet weighs a hundred trillion times as much as all present humanity. "In these days doubts press heavily for we see men and more men dressed alike, march alike and almost look alike. One of them is from our home. Can we pray for him and trust God knows for whom we plead? That is a piercing thought to many as 'they plead to God for the youth they so hunger to know is safe. "Mass production is not God's method.

In Dorothy McGuire continues to triumph in the leading role of this girl who suddenly is brought to maturity by realizing that -her mother is about to die. And in the long-time hi't comedy, "My Sister Eileen," Peggy Knudsen is a hit in the role of the young blonde sister who can't make up her mind as to whether she wants to be an actress or get married. Miss Knudsen, it will be recalled, replaced Jo Anne Sayres who created the role and then really got married to a naval officer. Miss Knudsen succeeded her in the role because Miss Knudsen was equally patriotic. She was in (the stage door canteen entertaining soldiers and sailors when the producer of "My Sister Eileen" saw her there. and decided she was the young lady to fit into this leading role of one of the major hit comedies Broadway has seen in years. that is already i's, may draw some of our Yanks to Russia, as it has to such far-flung points as Egypt and the Solomons.

It was discovered that Russians could be' brave, loyal, sad, glad, clever, foolish--in short, very ordinary folks. Our observers- writers, photographers, war correspondents--also hastened to add in their memoirs, articles, and such, that a Russian, besides being an extreme fatalist, is an extreme sentimentalist as well. He never forgets a good turn, and will.' shield a friend at the cost of his own life. As far as Russian hospitality goes, Russians need no introduction--the Russian will not eat until his guest or guests have been fed. He will sleep on the floor if there is but one bed in the house, and he happens to have a guest under his roof. But another quality for which Russians ought to justly be famed, is seldom mentioned--it is his ability to drive a hard bargain. Unless a Yank learns the art of haggling early, he will pay three prices "over there" for everything he may buy. Russian shrewdness is complemented by almost childish inquisitiveness and a riotous sense of humor. No one enjoys a good joke, and even a practical joke played on himself, as much as a Russian does. Sense of Humor In all those qualities--sentimentalism, love of.,the dramatic, generosity, and sense of humor--Russians resemble the Americans. But they also possess some qualities that are peculiarly their own. One of them is the devil-may-care attitude. This attitude results in the Russian seldom being exact, punc- For a great many years the tra- j beginning a simple and brief truth: 'ditional picture of a Russian was the Russians are simple people, ' " and most appreciative of any help given them.

The only method by which the speed limit can be changed, he said, is by legislative action, unless a federal order is issued. Should such an order come through, he added, he would take immediate action. GRID SCHEDULE TO BE DRAFTED Central Readyro Defend Title; Four Teams in City Circuit « Schedule for the coming football season in the Ogden city high school league will be drafted today, Dave Wangsgaard, loop czar, announced Saturday. The four teams have been undergoing the usual practice sessions since last Monday, when suits were first issued. Wangsgaard reported that the prospects at all of the schools were good and a hard battle for the championship is much in prospect. Whether the league will open with its regular double-header under the lights at the city stadium will also be settled at the Monday conclave. In that the schools opened two weeks later this year, a possibility of playing two rames in one week was suggested. It is hoped bo conclude the schedule before the bad weather sets in. Coaches for football for .the new season will be as follows: Harold Welch, Central; MacRae Magelby, Mound Fort; Carl Taylor, Lewis, and Aaron Home, Washington. Central is the defending champion in the pigskin sport. St. Petersburg Fans Celebrate end, catching one Cougar touchdown. ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., Sept. 23 (AP)--The center of spring baseball training is torn between conflicting allegiances in the coming world series. It is the only city ever to provide training camps for both opponents in a world series. The New York Yankees have been training here for the past 18 years and the St Louis Cardinals for about seven years. Every spring the two teams play week-end exhibition games. This year the Cards trimmed the American league champions six games to three. all-conference for the first B. Y. U. lost 20 to 7 to the Montanans last season.

An American soldier ought to be specially careful when asking for directions or time, for an average, or possibly below-the-average, (but nonetheless numerous), Russian has little sense of measure or time. The language that the Russian speaks is pretty much like the Russian himself--subject of fewer rules than exceptions. To learn it in its completeness would be a prodigious task for' an American A. E; F. boy. There are however some things about it he can learn very quickly and may find them standing him in good stead. Almost all words pertaining to exotic things or machinery are of foreign (French, English, German, Italian) origin. To give but a few instances, the words for tiger, orchid, democrat, republic, public machine, tank, electron, atom, aeroplane, and reporter, for instance are so much like their English counterparts that even an uninitiated can recognize them. They differ merely in pronunciation and in a letter or two, in spelling. There are many more words like that. Many familiar American trade names such as Singer sewing machine, or Underwood typewriter, have become household words in Russia and are synonymous with the articles these manufacturers are known for. - Of course a sign language with which . all Yanks are familiar ought to help a lot in getting such things clarified as "What are you dcin' tonight, babe?" or "I love you," and "Will you give me a. date tonight, honeychile?"
