TWO EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MP., FRIDAY, DECEMBER 9, 1955 Dial PA-2-4600 for a WANT AD Taker Actor's Sou Retires: 9'Month-Old Child Played Infant Moses By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD tfi — Despite a a budding career on the screen and TV, Fraser Heston lias retired. What's more, he's going to spend as much time as possible in the woods of Michigan, away from the bright lights of Hollywood and New York. No sense in kidding you—Fraser is 9 months old. He's the firstborn of Lydia and Charlton Heslon, and he has a icsolute father. "No more acting for my son" is the Heston edict But, being a proud papa, he couldn't refrain from giving the- lad's credits: Portrayal of the infant Moses in the bullrush scene for "The 10 Commandments," playing himself on the EC Murrow Person to Person show. "But that's all there will be for now," assured the elder Heston. "I certainly don't want him to be a child actor. If lie wants to be an actor when he grows up, that's up to him." Heston added that he wants his son to spend much of his childhood in the woods of Michigan. The Hestons have a thousand-acre place near St. Helen. Mich., 200 miles north of Detroit. That's where Charlton grew up. "I think it's much less healthy for a boy to grow up in a city atmosphere," he observed. "You have to instruct him in so many things. Like 'Don't accept rides from strangers' and 'Play only in front of our house.' In the woods, you don't have to develop such inhibitions. Kids grow up much freer. Boys especially; 1 don't think there is so much difference with girls. "Also, it's a much healthier life in the woods. The air is clean and fresh, and a boy is outside and active most of the time. We have no TV and no radio." SAVE EVERY DAY Director llcl|»« liigritl Cheek Makeup i i ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^_^—-—_.
