STARS HONOR HER 0 '' LS ~" Champ Althea Gibson Lanky Negro Girl, Tennis Champ, Wins Role in Movie HOLLYWOOD (AP)—This week three movie greats—John Wayne, William Holden, John Ford—hosted a press luncheon to hail the •tart ol a film career for a lanky Negro girl who never even acted fa a high school play. Her name is Atthea Gibson, and she is one of the leading names IB recent tennis history. The Harlem girt is her* for her movie debut — in fact, her acting debut in tpy medium. She explained: "No, I never even had • chance to do any acting in school. I've never had any coaching or anything. I've been too busy Ch. 6 Kills Doy Show in Network Switch CBS will cancel "Play Your Hunch," an audience participation seen here on Channel 6, Jan. 2. Three days later the Arthur Godfrey Show will be moved into this time slot. Despite the cancellation the show will not die. ABC has announced intentions of using the show in the slot now held by "Mother's Day" seen here on Ch. 6. traveling all over the world." Around the World Her travels as American tennis champion have taken her literally around the world. But now she hopes to settle down to a career as a different kind of performer. She's playing the maid to South- era belle Constance Towers in the Civfl War epic, "The Horse Soldiers." How did this come about? "The first I knew about it, my agent called and said they wanted me to come out and make a test for the picture," she said. "So I did, but I didn't know if much would come of it; There were a lot of experienced actresses up for the role, too." !• Dialogue Scenes But she won out, and she reported for work Monday. Her first day called for some difficult dialogue scenes, but she came through in championship style. "At least Mr. Ford said, 'Cut! Print it!' So I guess it was all right," she said modestly. Is there more acting ahead for her? "I hope so," she said. "I have retired from tennis for a year to see if I can develop other phases of my career. I have three things working for me now: The picture; an album of songs I recorded; and my autobiography." She still retains her amateur status and may return to tennis if her other careers don't take precedence. Johnny Corson Gets 'Rap' From Chinese Johnny Carson, host of "Who Do You Trust," heard about the fellow placing some flowers on the grave of a friend. He noticed an elderly Chinese gentleman placing a bowl of rice on a nearby grave. "When do you expect your friend to come up and eat bis rice?" he scoffed. "At the same time," replied the Oriental, "your friend comes up to smell the flowers." Girl, 18, Manages Newest London Hotel LONDON (AP) _ pretty, 18- year-old Diana Francis was named today as manager of London's newest hotel, the Ambassador.

Benny in 1953 filmed a satire of the MOM film "Gaslight" which has not been shown publicly since. As soon as it was filmed a suit by MGM prevented Benny from showing the program. The litigation in the past five years went from a district court all the way to the U. S. Supreme Court. A 4-4 vote of the court earlier this year left in force a lower court decision mat the show could not be presented without permission of MGM. Last mouth Benny bought a seven-year license from MGM allowing him to satirize the movie and the same type of license from Patrick Hamilton; author of the play. Jan. U Benny will present the parody entitled "Autolight." The cast will include Barbara Stan- wyck and Bob Crosby.

The first brigade had four push carts. a • a DID YOU KNOW All Furnaces Need Cleaning? WHY? Because, constantly circulating air deposits dust and dirt particles in air ducts and pipes.
