There's no .bought of retirement, no laurel' resting—only an intense desire to conquer a new generation and a new medium of entertainment. "That eez why I came 'ere dz time," he says, with the disarming smile and the projecting lower lip that still sets the ladies a-twitter. "It 'as been eight years since I was in America, and 20 years since [ made an American moo-vee. The young people here, they don't know me. 1 want to 'ave them like me." This, then, is the crossroads for Maurice Chevalier. Certainly not ihe first crossroads, and probably not the last. .But an important one. For, on Dec. 4, he's going on '.e'.e- make some electrical repairs at vision, where' maybe ' 50,000,000 people will see him, and there's a lot riding for him on those 50,000,000 Americans—who can be right. K Chevalier—1332 Chevalier—1955 "I will make.goor 1 (pronounced go-oo-o-o-od) or 1 will not make good that night," Chevalier says. "If I do make good, I will be back 'ere and I will make a pic-choore in 'ollywood for Billy Wilder and I will make, two more television appearances in the spring. If I do not make good, then I go back to France forever." And he's going to work hard to make good. "I am doing thees one-man show," he says. "It will run MERICAfrOIL COMPANY'S GREAT NEW MOTOR OIL. through' October. That is the hard- jcst thing in our profession, a one- man show. Just me out there, anc a piano. Then, after that, I wil! sing at the Empire Room in the Waldorf-Astoria for four weeks. But I will only sing one show a night. Everybody else sings two sifows. But I will only sing the late show. The early hours ' will watcli the television and see if I can understand why some people are good, others not. I will watch for four weeks, and then—may-bee—1 will know."

LONDON (INS) — Thousands of London women have forsaken the comforts of home or the dull routine of ordinary jobs for a-life of travel and adventure — on the city Six thousand "clippies"—women bus conductors—are now helping to man London's big red or green double-decked buses and rribre are being recruited at the rate of something like forty a week. • Most of London's "clippies" arc girls between 20 and 30, fast on iheir feet and equally fast with a comeback. Their occupational cry is "Hold tight!" and they scurry up and down the curving stairs of the buses, collecting fares, giving directions, parrying wisecracks and clipping tickets with the little machines suspended from cords] 1 around their necks. A spokesman for London's transportation board explained: "Women seem to like the idea of an interesting life and a chance to meet people."

' ° Navy Water Craft Look Like Grounded Planes NORFOLK, Va. m-The Navy is experimenting with some fast- flying ' hydrofoil craft which look ,.„_., „„ „ and circuses and similar events like small planes which never take off. The Navy isn't convinced that there is a mission for them — they make 75 miles per hour on (or over) water. They are powered by two aircraft engines. They ride on three foil-equipped struts, one under each wing and the . tail. Water flowing across the foils provides the lift to skim the surface. They make twice-the speed of conventional craft with the same power. Traditionally, the acre was the measure of ground that a plowman with one ox could turn over in a day.
