Mature Says He's the Emotional Type By liOll THOMAS HOLLYWOOD W')—How do actors acl? You read about everything else concerning actors except how they really do their work. This W a question I discussed with Victor Mature. The large lad from Louisville, Ky-, is the first lo disclaim any acting prowess on his own part. "I'm no actor—and I've got the reviews to prove it," he «ays. Hut he's bt'inK modest. He proved with "Kiss of Death" that he. was capable of some expert emoting. And when the new Cinemascope process was unveiled, the hit of the show was a huge closeup from "The Robe," in which Vic wordlessly reacted to the sight of Christ on the cross, If the rest of his performance measures up to the t;cene. he could evrn end up in the Oscar running. Vic is now starring in (he sequel, called "The Story of Demetrius." He was dressed in the scanty tunic which such epics require. Vic didn't seem to mind. He has displayed his egs in almost as many pictures as Betty Grable. Our discussion brougnt out the 'act that thre are two kinds of aeors: The technicians- and the emo- Jonai actors. Of course, most per- 'orrners a combination of the ,wo, but they generally lean to one or the other. The technician knows all the Bricks of acting; he remains out- Ide the character he plays, endow- IIR it with all his skill. The emo- I lional ador Jumps right in and becomes Uii! character he Is playing. He's Kmotlonul Type "I'm an emotional actor," Mature admitted. "When I'm doing a stene, I really believe it. I live the part us long as I'm In the scene. When I started out at the Pasadena Playhouse, I really went overboard. "I put myself so much Into the characters that I actually would become dizzy on the stage during a hishly emotional scene. Finally,! some of the experienced hands took me aside and told me to let up.! They knew I'd become & wreck 1! I remained .so intense." Vic said he admires such technicians ns Richard Widmark and James Carney, who apparently can adopt a more external approach to acting. But Vic said the only thing he knows is lo get in there and make betoeve. 'That's why it's better if I have few distractions," he remarked 'When I'm all wound up in a dramatic scene I can't think aDou anything else. I can't kid with the director or anything like that. I've got to have things appear as much like real life as possible, "Likewise, the better the actors I'm with, the better the performance I give. If I'm playing with a fine actor like Richard Burton, I do Better than usual. But if I'm with some actor who just drones his lines, I'm liable to stink. It's the same as In tennis or any other sport; the setter your opponent, the better your game." Communist Editor freed On Defamation Charge JERUSALEM (Israeli Sector) (/P) — The editor of the Communist newspaper Kol Haam was acquitted by a Jerusalem court yesterday of charges of defaming U. S. Secretary of state Dulles prior to his recent visit here. Ko; Haam published a teries of articles before Dulles' arrival under the heading "Get to Know- Mr. Dulles." The attorney general brought the <ase aglanst the paper for defamation of a representative of a friendly power. Berliners Protest Long Hours BERLIN f/p) — Five thousand East Berlin laborers paraded through the Soviet, sector yesterday carrying signs which demanded a lighter work day. It was such a remarkable sight to see anyone demonstrating against n Communist government edict without being clapped into jail that thousands of passeiisby stopped and gawked. Communist police stood on the sidelines, smil- ing. Obviously it was a planned rally, executed as part of the Communist regime's breast-beaiing- compaign of de-Sovietization that is intended to make East Germany a more attractive partner for the West in the new unity drive. One of the sharp reversals in that drive is severe criticism of a past error of the regime for demanding more work at no more pay.

Businessmen Study Answers to 'Slump' By SAM IMWSON NEW YORK in')— How to ward off a business slump—or lick one If it develops when defense spending eases—is being studied today by many businessmen. Some are sure they've found good nnxwers—increased advertising, greater output and selling effort, rese a r c h, new products. Here's a sampling: "Invest heavily in telling the world about your product through advertising," counsels Lee Hastings Bristol, president of Bristol-Myers Co. He .says that gives a company competitive advantage over any rival who tries to retrench. Bristol .says his own company did just that during the depressed 30's. An increase !n advertising expenditures, with or without a Korean truce, is urged by W. W. Wachtel. president of Calvert Distillers Corp. —a -sentiment that should please the members of the Advertising Federation of America, convened today in Cleveland. Ten years ago advertising equal- led three per cent ot natipnal income. Ad spending is now about seven billion dollars a year, but three per cent of present national income 914 billion dollars. Wachtel counsels businessmen against "timidity and defeatism." More production is the Pord scheme. The motor flrm aims at 20 per cent greater outpuU-and therefore 20 per cent greater selling eflort — In the coming six months than in the first half of the year. CBS-Columbia, Inc., aims the same way. The broadcasting system's subsidiary is raising its sales sights by 50 per cent for the coming year on the new line if TV sets just unveiled. Research into new products and processes also could help a firm- get an edge over rivals in slack times. John A. MacCartney, trade relations manager of Parke, Davis & Co., says the pharmaceutical industry Is now spending 60 million dollars a year for research, and still more research laboratories are planned. That's because "each ne\V discovery opens new avenues of problem approach and new vistas of Jobs to be done." Although the proportion Tariei greatly, practically all meteorite* contain some Iron.
