0 WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 20, 1952 THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS Lundigan Exposes His Knees in "Nile Serpent By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD — (AP) — Wil• liam Lundigan has abandoned his grey flannel suit for a Roman officer's skirt. Bill joins a distinguished list of actors who have exposed their knees, etc., for the sake of art and box office. Others include Gregory Peck "David and Bathsheba," Victor Mature "Samson and Delilah" and Robert Taylor "Quo Vadls". "In most of my pictures, I've been the pleasant young fellow j| from a nice Boston family/' Lundi' gan laughed. "I'm generally holding the hand of the heroine. I've held hands with Susap Playward, Jeanne Grain, Valentina Cortesa, Gloria DeHavcn, June Haver and Mitzi Gaynor." But Bill has other ambitions. They are being redlized in "Serpent of the Ni e". He plays a Roman officer who romances Cleopatra, lusciously portrayed by Rhonda Fleming. Virginia Mayo is a gal whose Pjl aim is entertainment, not art. She's in another musical, "Back To Broadway," and has no complaints. Doesn't she want an academy award? "Only if it's solid gold", she replied . . . * « * * Gapoule Review: "The Quiet Man" is a splendid comedy, full of warmth and wonderful color. The color is provided by the lush Irish countryside and the rich na. ^ tive characters. The story briefly is the tale of an Irish-American prize-fighter who returns to his old home and woos his bride. He runs right into the Irish courting customs, and that provides bounteous laughter. Heading a rollicking cast are John Wayne, Maureen O'Hara and Barry Fitzgerald.

WE WILL BUY YOUR EQUITY The call that saved a life! 6322 South Kedvale Avenue Chicago 29, Illinois February 18, 1952 Manager, Illinois Bell Telephone Company 1512 West 63rd Street Chicago, Illinois Dear Sir: On the morning of January 5 my life was saved by the prompt, coolheiided action of one of your operators. At about S:30 a.m. I suffered a very severe heart attack at my home. In the excitement my daughter- in-law dialed "Operator" and appealed for help. Within minutes your operator had a pulmotor squad on its way. And none too aoon. For three hours my doctor, using heroio measures, and the firemen with their life-giving oxygen, battled to save my life. Today 1 am on the road to recovery, thanks to the quick action of one of your fine operators. Again and again I have thought, how tender and frail the thin line that leads from Death up into Life, and yet in our direst moments how strong! At 5:40 a.m. that morning of January 5 it must have been the telephone line Sincerely yours. The operator who handled the call E STHER D OWNS, Portsmouth Office, Chicago On an average, Illinois Bell operators handle about 4,800 emergency calls a day.
