(ARK.)" COURIER NEWS Rough Week with Gina And Marilyn Together By SAUL PETT NEW YORK (AP) — All in all, it was a pretty rough week. First, I interviewed Gina Lollobrigida, who is getting weary of being known as the Marilyn Monroe of Italy. Then I saw Norma Jean Baker, who will never grow weary of being known as The Marilyn Monroe of the United States and all its possessions beyond the seas. actress." Gina and the doctor were married six years ago and honeymooned in the Alps. "She is not complicated," he said. "She has learned nothing of this woman business—how to be difficult, how to make a man suffer. She may look like a vamp but she's just a simple girl." Over on Lexington Avenue, at 2 a.m., another simple girl was being uncomplicated before about 1,500 people watching from across the street. They were shooting a scene for Marilyn Monroe's new picture, one in which her skirts are blown up over her head. There seemed to be- a running battle between the production men headed by director Billy Wilder and the squadron of press agents who had wired every newspaper in town of the night's event, then feigned pained surprise that so many people showed up. The production men wanted to get the picture shot and didn't mind if it were done in private. The press agents didn't mind if the picture were produced—as long as it was shot before a howling mob. It was a chilly night and Marilyn, in a thin dress, had --to have her skirts blown up at least 20 times before the scene was done. In the movie, the sequence will consume about 30 seconds, if the censor doesn't cut it out. In the shooting, it took four hours. Each time her skirts went up, the mob howled, whistled, applauded. I asked Marilyn if she minded the crowd. "Oh, I love it," she bubbled. "I love it." She did, too. And that's an exclusive quote. Remember you read it here first. Obituary Gina wore a low-cut black dress. Marilyn wore a low-cut white dress. (I was a sexy symphony in burlap.) Gina has big brown eyes. Marilyn has big blue eyes. (Mine a,re a tantalizing tangerine.) Which is the more attractive? There is little room to choose between them. Gina has the prettier face—it has a fragile, doll-like quality. Marilyn has the more impressive figure. But it's close. Gina's structure is still not the kind you'd kick out of your tennis court. She was surrounded by press agents, interpreters and her husband, Dr. Mirko Skofic, a pokerfaced man with a wry sense of humor. He is also her manager. He finds less and less time for medicine. "When Gina was a smaller actress," Dr. Skofic said, "I was a bigger doctor. Now she's s. bigger actress, I'm a smaller doctor." A press agent was beating my ears off. , "She's really a very talented woman," he said. "She sings, you ]mow. And she sketches her own dresses." "Yes, she sketches them after they're finished," said her husband. la halting but charming English, Gina explained that she is weary of being compared with Marilyn Monroe, she is weary of having American reporters never ask for measurements. They ask about her art. :'•'.••• "And they ask how much you're earning^ and 'that is boring, too," "It's so silly," Gina said. •"They ask, how much, is this (she indicated her chest)? What does it matter? K does not depend on the weight of the bosom to be a good Thomas Ray Tate Dies of Illness; Rites Tomorrow Services for Thomas Ray Tate son of Mr. and Mrs. W. B.

BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS DEMOCRATS Continued from Pag* 1 either a drafted candidate or to win the nomination without a fight from elements who want a new face in the face. It was considered significant in some quarters that only 28 of the 108 members of the Democratic National Committee personally answered the roll call at yesterday's closed session of the committee. Slim Attonftanc* There were 46 alternates, many of them obviously handed their credentials by party leaders in Washington, to fill out the ranks of what was by all odds a slimly- attended session which had been advertised in advance as a kickoff drive in the campaign for control of Congress. Despite all these factors, the Democrats were able to outward optimism that was not matched by members of the Republican National Committee at their recent session in Cincinnati. From both sides of the continent, Democrats brought stories of what they called a resurgence of.their party in congressional campaigns, senatorial races and governors' contests. Paul Zeffrin, California national committeeman, said in an interview that he thinks Democratic candidates have better than an even chance to win the governorship and a senatorial post in California. He predicted his party will gain a minimum of three or four seats in the Pacific Coast state.' Mayor David Lawrence of Pittsburgh, Democratic national committeeman for Pennsylvania, said his state is in the same position as Maine, which elected Edmund S. Muskie, a Democrat, as that state's first Democratic governor in 20 years. Muskie was promoted to a speaker's billing on today's program. Lawrence said in an interview that he believes Pennsylvania voters not only will elect Democrat George M. Leader • as governor over Republican Lloyd H. Wood but will give Democrats a gain of about six seats in the closely- divided House of Representatives. This victory theme was echoed by Democrats from all sections, STAY W SCHOOL.
