Let's take a tour of the glamour factories and find out what's cooking with those few film stars left in Hollywood this summer. Out in the valley, James Stewart is going through the motions of enacting the famed bandleader in "The Glen Miller story." With rimless specs and a new troupe, he's a ringer for Miller. Jimmy even maneuvers the trombone with the ease of a veteran. But the illusion is good only as long as the playback record is heard. He blows and makes the movements, but nothing comes out. "You have to develop tough lips with years of practice," he explains, "and I've only been playing a couple of months." This fellow Stewart is probably making more money from movies than any other actor, thanks to his deals for 50 per cent of his films' profits. And he shows no signs of slowing. He goes right into be made in Canada, then plans to "The Par Country," a Western to do two films at Paramount before the year is out. He is an air enthusiast, and I ask if he has any story he's eager to do. Lindy Won't Sell "Yes. The story of Charles Lind- tierg's flight across the Atlantic. It was a fantastic story of courage and his example sped the air age. But Lindbergh won't sell the film rights." . . . Outside "The Gladiators" set we find Susan Hayward, sitting alone on the cement steps in a Roman costume bedecked with jewels. And what Is this glamor girl's first topic of conversation? Her twin sons' swimming lessons. She also is wondering what is going to happen to the movie business. "The studio is going to make only 12 pictures a year and I'm supposed to dp three a year," she reasons. "How are they going to put me in one-fourth of the prod uct?" She says she isn't going to worry about it, since her deal has four years to go without options. Still she hankers for freedom to do a ot of things, including her first try at the stage. "I don't mean little theaters" she adds, "i mean big theaters. If I flop, I'm going to flop in a big way" . On the inside, Victor Mature is doing a tense, almost hysterical scene for "The Gladiators " As soon as it is over, he strides hap- Seemingly without great difficul ty, he shifted from accusing thi clergy of being tools of capitalisn to accusing thousands of them o being tools of communism. For years he has been a pro fessional expert on communism and subversion. But when McCar thy hired Matthews and then the American Mercury article ap peared, the senator found out b was in trouble. McCarthy, a Roman Catholic himself, has steered clear of involvement with the clergy of any faith. Although he's been in some ho: and embarrassing spots, McCarthy has operated very shrewdly sine the time he first got national at tention three years ago with his charge that the State Departmen was loaded with Communists. But by holding onto Matthews and even defending him, it seemed not unlikely that McCarthy migh turn millions of religious-mindec people against him, particular!} Protestants, since it was the Prot estant clergy that Matthews hac writen about. From (he White House When four of the seven senators on his committee demanded tha Matthews be fired, McCarthy said no. He had Matthews' resignation but wouldn't accept it. The Democrats took the fight to the floor of the Senate yesterday. McCarthy backed up a little, but not to the point of getting rid of Matthews And then the White House made A Catholic priest, a rabbi ac a Presbyterian minister, representing the National Conference oi Christians and Jews, had seni President Eisenhower a telegram which didn't mention Matthews by name but denounced his attack. Eisenhower, in a reply which didn't mention Matthews or McCarthy, said: "Generalized and irresponsible attacks that sweepingly condemn the whole of any group of citizens are alien to America. He Accepts It was right there that McCarthy quit. He accepted Matthews' resignation. McCarthy had crossed swords with Eisenhower before: ,by trying unsuccessfully to block the President's nomination of Charles E.

After about five senhower has been almost meek by-faced man whom the senator called a "star-spangled American" and an "outstanding authority" on subversion. He considered himself one of Matthews' "pupils and admirers." Three weeks ago he hired Matthews as executive director of McCarthy's Senate investigating subcommittee staff. Shortly afterwards the American Mercury magazine appeared with an article by Matthews. The opening paragraph said Protestant clergymen comprise "the largest single group supporting .the Communist apparatus." And Matthews' article said further that in the last 17 years the Communists had enlisted 7,000 Protestant clergymen as spies, Communists, fellow-travelers or dupes. Matthews claimed to be in a position to know. He had been a fellow-traveller himself. He was not one of those people who know from childhood the career they will follow as the Washington Star found out in an interview not long before McCarthy showed him the gate. He Was Hungry Matthews, said the Star, described himself as a man "ever hungry for ext-reme solutions to the problems of the world." His scription: He was a Methodist minister but later, when he became a Marxist Socialist and a fellow-traveler, attacked the clergy as, tools of capitalism. He worked with Socialists and Communists in 28 front organizations until he got fed up with the Communists, too, and became an anti-Communist. months of being in armor ior " Robe" and the current sequel (formerly called "The Story of Demetrius"), he will soon be on his favorite haunt, the golf course. He tells how he wangled out of playing in another costume epic, "Prince Valiants": "I just told the studio I was too distraught to even talk about it. Remember how for a couple of years aner the war all the leading men were just too tired to carry on? I pulled that routine." Nowadays, tne same boys who were too weary to carry on are lucky to be working, adds Mature. More than 280,000 Americans were killed in action durin World War II. Cancer killed 607,000 persons in the United States durin the same period. in dealing with McCarthy .But this time, on an issue which cut across all political lines because it Involved religion, Eisenhower spoke out. It was too much for McCarthy. Police to the Rescue DENVER Iff) — Police Capt. Edward Swank rescued a 43-year-old woman, part of whom was caught in the zipper of a new bl'ie evening gown.

In Russia, which promises the working man the moon but still employs slave labor, there is a vast gulf between the peasant and the bureaucrat. In America and other parts of the free world, which long ago abandoned slavery as unprofitable and in, the long run unworkable, the working man has reached a new peak of human dignity. A rising standard of living— and such gadgets as the Income tax, perhnps-have reduced the differ- once between the boss and the hired hand. The creature comforts of our civilization-cars, homes, better food, television sets- are move and more within the reach of all. Hate-Gap Lessens The old hate'gap between employer and employe, between capital and labor, has narrowed, too. The guy who works for a wage and the guy who supervises or owns the business are coming to understand that both are in the same boat, and if either rocks It too hard both may drown. This truth seems, in a century that in terms of war has been the most murderous in history, the best portent for survival of a way of life tha t has prospered more people than any system since the story of man began. The plain fact is that capitalism has shown itself more responsive to change, more willing to correct its own abuses, than Communism. It has given more people more hope, more freedom, more bread, more opportunity, more dignity, more happiness. This recognition of the teamship between boss and hired man has made the role of boss more if- ficult. An old song says, "A good man is hard to find." But industry is find- Ing today that a good boss Is even harder to find—and hold. Has Extinct The old style boss, who often ruled his underlings by the whiplash of fear, is gradually joining the dinosaur. The new type boss leads men rather than drives them. His greatest weapon in getting his a prisoner of responsibility. Bosses who deliberately set out to win the affection of their em- ployes rarely do. But a boss who deals fairly and squarely cannot help but gain their admiration and respect, qualities which in time turn to fondness. Why are good bosses scarce and in high demand? Ask the average employe if he really wants to be the boss himself. "My wife kind of wants me to, but I don't," he will say, if honest. "Too many worries .No fun. You gotta please too many people." That Is perhaps the best tribute job done is not his authority—it [ you can pay a good boss today. is his depth of understanding. He must know how to get along with people. He is less of an autocrat and more of an artist in human relations. He knows that a symphony orchestra conductor cannot make a tuba player blow a sound like a violin by beating him over the head with a baton. The baton is a symbol, not a club. It draws from each musician the right note at the right time—and the result is harmonious achievement. The task of the bos, in office or factory, is the same as that of an orchestra conductor—to get from each man the bes tthat is in him. A boss today sometimes isn't sure whether he is a father, a policeman, a football coach, or a psychiatrist. There are days when he must be all of them. And some days, when nothing seems, to go than he does & prisoner. And, of course, that is what he also is— Most people who work for him no longer envy him — because they wouldn't take his troubles for hfc salary. Yugoslav Population Is on Increase BELGRADE new census in Yugoslavia shows a population of 16,927,000 persons, seventh largest on the European continent. This compares to 12,465,000 in 1921, to 14,458,000 in 1931 end to 15.770,000 and represents a population growth of aproximately 36 per cent since the end the world war I.
