The miscarriage was confirmed Wednesday night. The 32-year-old blonde film star was reported recovering at her home here with her husband, playwright Arthur Miller, at her side. But Joseph Wolhandler, Miss Monroe's personal press representative, said she is extremely upset. He said doctors determined she had lost her baby early this week, but that they did not set the exact time the miscarriage occurred. Miss Monroe, who married Mill- »r in 1956, was five or six weeks pregnant when she lost her first baby Aug. 1, .1957. Wolhandler said she became pregnant again last September while making a movie. Her doctors decided she could continue • with the film in what Wolhandler described as a calculated risk. I Miss Monroe finished the picture and returned here from Hollywood about two weeks ago. Last Sept. 15, she was taken to a Hollywood hospital when she complained of feeling ill. Her illness was described as due to overwork. On the advice of her physician, Wolhandler said, Miss Monroe had cut out all social affairs and turned down normal publicity de-i mands such as interviews and' photographs.

Most say telephone and mail order business — which amounts to 15 per cent of total Christmas sales — is down sharply. Get Rid of Gifts Store traffic held up fairly well in the early days of the newspaper blackout but declined as the strike entered its second week. Another strike-inspired problem: How to get rid of specially priced gift items the stores had Intended to push via spectacular sales campaigns. Warehouses are bursting with merchandise of this type.
