nro BLYTHPIVTLLK (ARK.) COUSIKR NEWS TUESDAY, MAT 27, 1953 Tito May Strengthen Hold on Yugoslavia .. By ALEX H. SINGLETON .. BELGRADE UV— Marshal Joslp Broz Tito's Communist party will strengthen, and perhaps simplify its present firm control over Yugoslav affairs by a major operation on the country's constitution next month. Outwardly at least, the constitutional revision will grant greater powers to the Yugoslav two-house Parliament by abolishing the present all-powerful Cabinet and transferring Its functions to legislative committees. Actually, the change as now drafted probably will make little difference In the rule of the country under its one-parly, vote-ycs- or-no system. As members of Parliament, most of the Cabinet probably will retain their present posts but under different titles. Tito himself-now Yugoslavia's unchallenged leader as Prime Minister and head of the Communist party's powerful Politburo — undoubtedly will become Yugoslavia's first President under the new setup. It will make lUtle difference In his powers. The plan for constitutional "reform" has been drafted by the Council for Legislation of the National Assembly, but so secretly that, until recently, few people knexv it was in progress. The plan may undergo at least, one major change before it Is presented to Parliament in late June but here is the broad pattern: 1. Parliament — The structure of the Federal Council of the National Assembly—comparable to the Unite'd States House of Representatives—would ho preserved without substantial change. The present Council of Nationalities, representing the Yugoslav republics along the lines of state repre sentation In the United States Sen- ate, would have most of Its functions tnlccii over by a new Council of Producers represent Ing the country's economic and industrial Interests, 2. Elections — Under the present system, members of both houses nro elected by direct vote from their home districts. Under the new plan, deputies to the Federal Council would be chosen by town nnd city councils. Members of the 'ouncil of Producers would be named by the workers' councils of economic and industrial organizations. 3. The Cabinet, which now manages the country's executive affairs under Tito's direction as Prime Minister, would be abolished and its powers nnd cum'tions turned over to Parliament's "Presidium." 4. Structurally, the Presidium would remain uncharged — a body of 40 members of Parliament elected at a joint session of the txvo houses —- but It.s resutm.sibill- ties would be greatly increased Up until now. Its nuthnrity has been negligible, consisting chiefly of npproving government executive decrees when Parliament was not in fe.ssion, b. Under the new plnn. the Pee sidlum will be subdivided imo committees wish jurisdiction over legislation affecting such state matters ns foreign affairs, interior Question, 1 ! and agriculture. Tlie Presidium also would appoint state secretaries, deputy secretaries and other.administrators to handle executive duties now performed by Cabinet members. G. At the head of the Presidium will be a President, With the Pre- sidum's vastly enlarged powers ami abolition of direct Cabinet control over executive functions, this post almost, certainly will go to Tito. Italy to Pour $15 Billion Lire Into Waning Sulphur Industry ROME (/n—Italy has decided to pour nine blllEon tire (15 million dollars) Into Its declining sulphur industry in an attempt to double production. One of the world's richest nations In sulphur, Italy snw its production decline from almost 600,000 tons in 1905 to 77,000 tons In 1945 despite R wideopen market caused by a world sulphur shortage. Wartime destruction o f the largest sulphur mines in Sicily were partly responsible. High production costs did the rest. Last year the national production reached 200,000 tons, 120,000 of which ,carjq£ from Sicily.. In it£; r natic|^lfe''^fetj:iHl ex*• pnnsiob prbgrf^,lBie~It«lf!nh Irons- 1 ury eRrmarkecf nine billion lire Tor "reorganization, development, nnd technical improvement o/ sulphur mines." The bill was approved by Parliament. The costs will be paid from the Industry and Commerce and Treasury Ministries budgets. Because of outdated mining methods a large part of Italy's sulphur la lost. From a total 1,612,000 tons of mineral ore, only 200,000 tons of sulphur were collected In 1951. Modern equipment anil special ovens would double sulphur . production nlmost Immediately. Sulphur experts say the open ovens now in use yield only 3< per cent of sulphur from treated ore. A modern process could produce as much as 70 or 75 per cent. An Italian government publication snltl sulphur production will double within the next three years and by the end of 1954 a 400,000-ion annuttl production Is expected. Mo:=i of it will come fro mthe rich Sicilian mines. \' "~ BACK FROM THE JUNK PILE—This is one day's supply of reclaimed tires at Ihe Tokyo Ordnance Depot.

By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD Lf>—You'd never guess the only actor who has ever thnnked me profusely for interviewing him. It's boogeyman Bela Lugosl. Masiy stars tlRure they're giving you a break to allow themselves to be interviewed, Others merely put up with it as an evil necessary to the**- profession. Many others are nice enough about it, but none has seemed as pleased about being interviewed as Lugosi. who soared to fame as the vampire I3racula. Like Ills fellow horror expert. Boris Kailoir. LUKOSI is n courteous, soft-spoken fellow whi> lakes his craft seriously. He fell into (he horror line quite by accident. He was a romantic star of the Hoyal Theater in Hungary, playing the enema) roles in such Perenc Mol- rwr plays as "lilliom" and "Tlie Guardsman." nut he came to New York in the chillrr-rtiller "Dracula." When he re-created the roEe in films, he was licstincri to a career of scaring people. Since he had pifiyed everything from Shakespeare to Byron, 1 asked jf he objected to being typed. "No, not at all," he replied. "The mnin tiling for an actor is to keep rkiiifj. And I have managed to do so for a good many years. It is a kind of security, this being a horror man. I havej'usl returned from playing 'Dracula' in England for eight months. I also made a picture over there. "[ have appeared on television with Milton Berle and a dozen oilier j-hows. Now I am filming 'Bel.t I.ugosl Meets the Gorilla Man,' which Is not bad publicity. I am to return to England for another picture, and I am talking about a television series. So you can see I have been busy." Far from regretting his horror tap, he is even sorry he didn't sew up the field. He hail the chance after Me made his hit in "Dracula." They wanted me to play the part of Frankenstein's monster," he recalled. "I even did a test for it. Tlie makeup was terrible, with the rubber mask and putty and the padding choking my body. Then I saw the script. I.didn't have a line in the whole picture! "Didn't want to do it. I figured they e^Lild get any truck driver to put on all that stuff and grunt through the part. So I told them ij wouldn't do it. At first they were nugry, and then t told them my doctor advised against such a strenuous part. "They said they would let m» out of the part if I would dig up someone to do It. So I looked around and found Boris Karloff. He -Jid the role, and of course It was a hit. I created my own Frank- eiistcin monster by turning down the p.irt." Lugost stayed at Universal for several years, playing in other horror films and co-starring with Karloff in many of them. H« said thnt several years ago the studloE weren't making horror films so h» went to the east to live. He performed in plays nnd in vaudeville. Now horror seems to be blossoming forth in Hollywood again, and he is again a California resident.
