(fl>)_Pa- trlcia Medina gives us a peek behind the silk curtain that has cloaked the filming of Rudolph Valentino's life. The shooting of the Latin lover's life has been, as the cliche goes, shrouded in secrecy. Press correspondents' have been banned from the set. The script was reportedly guarded like a copy of "handy hints for making H-bombs." One wild rumor declared that scripts were secreted in Jack Benny's vault after each day's work. So I wa.s happy to smuggle one i,f the picture's stars, Patricia Medina, out, of the studio during the lunch hour.

"Not that I know of." said the beaiiteous brunette as she dug into a sclad. "Well, have yoir seen the script— the whole script?" Oh yes, I read it all before 1 took the part." "Isn't the press banned from the set?" "Come to think of it, I haven't seen any there." "Isn't the set exclusively guarded?" "No, there's just the usual policeman—a nice old pent of 72." Love, I.ove. Love Miss Medina said that Tony Dexter, who portrays Valentino, h^s a remarkable resemblance to the famed Latin. "Poor bov." she ailrted. "all he lias to do Is make love. He makes love in the scenes from the old pictures and he makes love In the scenes of Valentino's real life." She reported that she had just seen rushes of a Inve scene she did with him "I wns disappointed." she said. "I wanted to tin the scene while reclining, but they pronppr me up; under a couple of pillows Love making has to be verticlc, they said." She said thnt most of the characters In the film will be fictionn and Valentino's wives will not be portrayed.

(API — Niivajo Indians are turning to the white man's artificial rain-makers. But not so the.nelghboring Horis, who still place their trust in rattlesnakes to carry their prayers for rain to the tribal gods. Chales Barnes, head of Precipitation Control Co., Phoenix, announced here he had entered into a contract with the Navnjo tribal council. Under the agreement his planes will sow clouds over the vast reservation with silver Iodine to induce rain. Barne.'; said his pilots had orders to stay away from the Hopl reservation. Small Businessman Prospers As Scouts Swap Toads, Eggs Old Fish Laws Revealed NEW DELHI, India. , . _ Fishery laws of Asoka, who ruled India 2,500 years ago, may be adapted for use today. The director of the Zoological Survey of India has recommended reenactment of the laws, which were engraved on a stone pillar during Asoka's reign. The director said the conservation laws were comprehensive and based on biological knowledge of the principal food fishes of India. VALL-EY FORGE, Pa., (fl 1 )—Tills is the world capital of the small businessman. Anyone who worries that the r United States may be forgetting the principle of individual enterprise should come here to the second national jamboree <|' the Boy Scouts—and forget his fears. He would learn that the real hero of young America today is'nt Horatio Aleer. it's David Harum, the horse trader. You probably have already read that the 47,000 Scouts gathered here are spending.'a big part of their time swapping. But you'd haye to see the horse-trading that goes on in the encampment to believe it. It is a strange unregulated market of barter dominated by the ancient Roman principle of "caveat emptor"-^let the buyer beware, For there is no Better Business Bureau or Securities Exchange Commission to set the standards of exchange. The only question is this: "Ya wanna swap? All right, whatcha got that I want? Here's what I've got—Do y» want it or dontcha?" Barter System's Value As is usual under a barter svs- lem the value or real Identity of the merchandise offered isn't guaranteed. And It is open to real suspicion. Where else, for examples, are ordinary caterpillars being palmed off as "real genuine silkworms?" Where else are cockleburrs being offered as "positively grade-A porcupine eggs?" And finding buyers too! Well, theyVe been sold here.

"N'o More Swaps" Some Scouts who have run out of radlng material have put signs on heir tents saying: "No more swaps. •eddlers stay away. This means have traded everything 'rom Scout badges to stamps, Neckerchief slides, eagle claws, coon- ikln hats, stuffed birds, snakes. and live These boys know their business.
