SIX OUT OF SEVEN FOR POLIO— Infantile paralysis, which has been epidemic in 10 states, and which may take a higher toll across the nation than the 1949 onslaught of the disease, has stricken six of the seven children of Mr. and Mrs. Paul Pehl, of San Antonio, Tex.

In all the hubbub between Mario Lanza and MGM, a significant event was overlooked. Another top star, the debonair collie, Lassie, severed relations with the studio, but on much friendlier terms. • • * * No suspensions. No name-calling Lassie just licked his bosses' hands, they shook his paw and all called it quits. It was a model of star-studio relationship. But then Lassie has been a model star.

Although my relations with Lassie have always been cordial, I chose to interview his agent about future plans, etc. Lassie never was very good copy. * • • . * "We parted with MGM on the friendiest term.s," assured the agent, a busy fellow named Lew Dorn. "About a year ago, I had a talk w|th Louis K. Sidney, one of the bosses. He said the studio was cutting down on million-dollar pictures, and the Lassie pictures. which were always in color, were too expensive. "We agreed that the name 'Lassie' was important to both of us. So we had a conference with officials from tlie contract department, legal department and casting. We worked out a plan whereby Lassie would be released and would not work for a year. That would give the studio time to clear up its releases and reissues. "Now the year is up, and we are ready to go to work." * * * • Dorn said he would seek another major studio contract for Lassie. He added that he had many other offers, including several for a tele- IWTT^ICAL INSTRUMENTS HADIO & TELEVISION burSm RITES TUESDAY FOR STAGE STAR By Associated Press NEW YORK — The men who gave Gertrude Lawrence her final vision series, vv'hich may eventuate.
