PAGE TEN BL1TITEVHLK (ATUt) COURIER NEWI WEDNESDAT, JULY 1, 1953 Movie Scientist Says Space Travel Is Just Question of Time By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD (AP) — Off we go into the wild space yonder. . . That theme song may not be far off, according to experts who are working on a filrr about space flight. One of them is Dr. Konrad Ruttuer, scientist who researched the efi'ec of heat and cold on pilots for Germany during the war. Now a researcher at UCLA on th> human aspects of space travel, he comments: "The advent, of space (ravel is only a matter of how much money \ve want to spend to achieve it. The principles are established; now il is strictly a matter of dollars and engineer ins. Space travel stands at the same place where the atom bomb was in 1940. Scientists know it can be done." Dr. Buuner has been advising on the technical aspects of "Riders to the Stars," which producer Ivan Tors culls a science picture. Not science fiction, mind you. He claims it's for venl. The story concerns the search for personnel to ride a space ship 350 miles up to capture a meteor in its native state. The idea is to learn why rockets crystallize above certain altitudes. ''The selection of personnel to travel in space flight will be a major task." assured Dr. Buttner. "They must be smaller than average in weight tnd size, but not too small so that they might have inferiority complexes. They must be around 25—fully matured but not yet declining' physically. They must be pilots and have a college background, preferably in astro-physics and engineering. "They must also have high moral aspects. They will have to posess well-balanced personalities and be willing to risk their lives for the benefit of mankind." ; Curt Siodmak, who wrote the I picture, offers the notion that ' women might be the first spa.ce travelers. He points out that women would be .smaller, weigh less, require less food and have a better nature for withstanding the boredom of remaining: in space for extended periods. Dr. Buttner said it was a possibility. He added that the establishment of space stations, or artificial satellites, is actually more important to humanity than ranching Mars, the moon or other planets. The latter would largely serve to satisfy human curiosity, he said. Clothes Make the Man OKLAHOMA CITY (/?') — Informality in dress, brought on by 90- degree weather, has resulted In a Loss of dignity on more than one score by Oklahoma legislators. Rep. Cleeta John Rogers, wearing a comfortably cool sport shirt, was addressed as "page" by one of the post office employes whom he .sponsored. Lt. Gov. James E. Berry, seeing a sports shirt-clad figure on the page bench, snapped his fingers three times and yelled, "Page!" Harold Morgan, state senator, turned bu •efused to acknowledge the command. "But the construction of an ni Uncial saU'UiU' would have a pro found effect on the earth, ot onl would it be ,1 means of assuring travel to other plankets; it wouli also be n valuable military weap on. The sending of rockets t< enemy countries could be dom with accuracy. There is virtually no counter me ami re for such weapon. "It would he a means for in swing peace."

It's Really Tough in Hollywood: Grable Let Out By HOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD W—The (frowintf peril lo Hollywood's star system was dramatized today with the news that 20th Century-Fox had parted with its biggest moneymaker, Betty Grable. The star and studio reached an "amicable" ending of her contract, which would have expired in September, 1954. During her 13-year reign as queen of the lot. she had earned millions for herself and the company in glossy musicals. She became the No. J box-office draw in w;i rti! ne and has remained among UK- top 10 longer than any other female s'^r. Why? At 3fi. her glamor gams are still holding their own with the nearer names. Then why would 20th Century-Fox grant her wish for freedom? One of the principal reasons is that the, film studios can no Longer support the expensive star lists of tha past, With picture making divorced from theater operation by government order, the studios have to show a profit or else. That meant cutting down th« overhead costs that the theaters could once absorb. Exhausted Miss Grab/i* ft is earning an estimated $5,000 a week plus big bonuses at the end of each picture. Studios now figure they can avoid such year-around expenses and merely hire talent by the picture. The 3-D revolution has caused fewer pictures to be made, requiring fewer actors. This points to the decline of the star system. The studios are letting many of their established stars go and building few new ones. Miss Grable's relations with her studio began to worsen two years ago. She -sat out a year's suspension after turning down "The Girl Next Door." She declared she was 'physically and mentally exhaust- IMPORTS _.-— , FOR CONSUMPTION -^'J^H I i r-l- ed after 18 months of steady work." After returning for a film, she was again suspended for refusing "Pickup on South Street," She explained: "It was a starkly real- dangerous for me to do." She gained her third suspension for refusing a Columbia loanout. Hei' reason: The studio couldn't assure her who the co-star would be. The gorgeous blonde from St. Louis said she has wanted her freedom for the past year and a half but the studio refused until now. She wants to do pictures at other studios, appear and record with her husband, Harry James, and 40 radio and TV. She also wants free time to follow her horses, which have been a convenient enterprise. During her first suspension, her horse Big Noise earned $100,000. Community Smoking In the east and southeast, the Indians pierced the bowls of their peace pipes with several stem holes so that many persons might j .smoke at once, according to the j Encyclopedia Britannica.
