WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen Richard Russell (D-Ga) said today 'the administration is wrong in ordering the armed forces' manpower cut, but that he doubts congressional critics can do much about it. Russell , chairman of the Senate Arjned Services Committee, said his group would start hearings early next year on the cutback, and on whether the top military people believe it to be safe. He said he considers the planned reductions "are penny wise and pound foolish." "But I don't know of anything affirmative the Congress can do," he said. He conceded the White House lias the authority to refuse to spend money even if Congress appropriates it to permit a bigger uniformed service. "You can't impeach the President, and he seems determined to increase foreign aid and reduce the defense establishment," Russell continued in an interview.

Filmdon's "perfect wife" was talking about the scarcity of light comedy roles which had brought her screen 'career to a peak. "The real problem is why isn't the comedy being written," she said. "The trend has been toward realism on the part of the writers —and they furnish the material. Hey Kids . . .

By CHARLES MAHER MCMURDO SOl/ND, Antarctica (AP)—Man's behavior in the cruel and eerie isolation of the South Pole may give explorers of another generation an Idea of how to get along In space ships. Pnlle Mogensen, polar transportation expert who has just spent a year as leader of a scientific party at the pole, said: "I don't know any other place on earth where you can come up with a situation so much like space." The nine scientists and eight Navy men who spent a polar year with Mogensen were not selected indiscriminately. "They were picked by skilled people and psychologists," he said. "All went through the head-shrinker line." Half a Year The men hnd to spend nearly half a year in a weird world of darkness and desolation and in temperatures as low as 100 degrees below zero. "There were no fights during the entire year," Mogensen said. "And ho near misses. Not even this, because we're inviting trou- the tendency.

You might feel like telling them to be quiet or say something new. "But even what problems we did have were always over little things." How about such things as politics and religion? "You can safely say they're not! nearly the problems as the little; things," Mogensen observed. Group Censure "Nobody can become really an-j noying in a situation like that.

You can't write comedy without satirizing or being critical of something. Don't Laugh "We have lost the ability to laugh at ourselves. It's a very unhealthy thing." After a two-year absence from Hollywood, Miss Loy recently completed her latest film in which she is costarred with Montgomery Clift and Robert Ryan. She plays the part of a wife with a past. She is being hailed as "the new Myrna Loy," which rather tickles her. "Being typed is always a danger," she said, smiling, "and I've been typed so often I feel like a cat with nine lives. But I'm glad to do roles that have more depth." Born on a Montana ranch, red- haired, freckle-faced Myrna Loy was earning $30 a week teaching ballroom dancing while still in her teens. Then for seven or eight years Hollywood cast her as a slinky Oriental femme fatale in film after film. $3,000 a Weck When stars like Tab Hunter were still in their diapers, Myrna was earning $3,000 a week up as perhaps the screen's all-time favorite wife, the woman every man wanted to marry and bring home to mother. Off-screen, her four matrimonial ventures fared less happily. The springboard for this phase of her career was the immensely successful "Thin Man" series in which, she was teamed as the understanding wife of William Powell. They are popular all over again now as television reruns. She has been one of the film colony's busiest workers in furthering the cultural activities of the United Nations. Weren't Wasted "The years I haven't been so active in films weren't wasted," she said thoughtfully. 'They have brought me much experience in life and living. "The world consists of more than government moves. The artist used to be looked upon as suspect and unreliable. That was ridiculous." "Life becomes a dead end for people only because they don't know how to stay active." McElroy announced last month a directive to the four armed services to cut back their uniformed manpower to the hotly disputed levels President Eisenhower had set in a message to Congress last winter. vSTRIPES MAKE EXIT DES MOINES (AP) — Prison stripes no longer will be worn by inmates of.the Iowa Penitentiary at Fort Madison when they are placed in solitary confinement. The Board of Control has decided that putting stripes on the convicts' trousers hampers rehabilitation efforts. Stripes for all prisoners were abandoned several years ago.
