Businessmen Are Optimistic Truce or Nor, They See Solid Year for All '53 By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK OT—Most Ousiness- men appear continent that business will be good for the rest of the year —with or without a Korean truce. Many have already adjusted their plans to the long hoped-for cease- fire. They know a truce will haev an effect on business—but say it will have much less effect now than it would have had two years ago when it was first proposed. The Korean war has been costing the U. S. Treasury about five billion dollars a year. But a truce won't save it anywhere near that amount. The military forces will stay right there for some. time. The chief saving will be in the cost of ammunition now being fired and in aviation gasoline and supplies for ;he air sorties now being flown. Billion Savings Some estimate this saving might Amount to around one billion dollars n the next six months—a billion ;hat the Treasury would be glad ,o save in that period when it will 36 facing a climbing deficit that hreatens to bump against the legal ipbt ceiling of 275 billion dollars.

I'm Maying with Joan now, Fontaine Sisters Let Chilhood Spats Grow By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD Wi-"Really, our family is very affectionate., I think our so-called squabbles have been exaggerated." Speaking was Lillian Fontaine, mother of the fabulous, feuding sisters. Olivia De Havilland and Joan Fontaine. Although the two sisters are.again on speaking terms —(or the present at least—they have had then- tussles, both in private and public. The most famous public spat came wlien Olivia won her Oscar for "To Each Her Own" in 1947. Joan was backstage at the Shrine Auditorium, having- presented an award as a past winner. She stepped up to Olivia and started to congratulate her as she came off stage. The Spat "How can you speak to me when you know how I feel!" snapped Olivia, and Joan tied in tears. The girls didn't speak again until last year, when Olivia shed her husband, Marcus Goodrich, He, Incidentally, was reported to be one of the girls' points of contention. Mrs. Fontaine is a friendly, energetic woman, and you can see where her daughters • got their beauty and vitality. I asked if the Academy incident alarmed her. "Not at fiist," she replied. "I thought it was just one of those involuntary, impulsive things that people do in times of excitement. When I rean the newspaper accounts of the affair, I began to think it had grown to larger proportions. think the girls' differences have never been as bad as they appear to be in print. I also think the differences are deepened because of the fact that so much is made of them in the papers. Then it becomes more of a matter of pride not to get back together." Did the girls also fight as youngsters? !ertninly," the mother replied. "But no more so than any family, with two daughters. They had their military spending and are making heir plans accordingly. They expect a Korean peace to make little difference. and I see her two girls doing the same things all over again. 'This toy is mine!' 'No, it isn't!' That sort of thing."
