lOGrWSPORT- PUBLIC LIBRARY SUNDAY, OCTOBER 2, 1960. THE PHABOS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPOltT PRESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA PAGE SEVHI HOLLYWOOD ON TV ' LATEST HOLLYWOOD GOSSIP-ON BOATS BY ERSKINE JOHNSON Hollywood Correspondent Newspaper Enterprise Assn. HOLLYWOOD - (NBA) — Dick Powell confirmed the ; whispers about his electrolysis. "Sure, I've got it,", he said. "But have you heard about 'Lady Claire'?" We hadn't heard about "Lady Claire" and we were all ears. "Too heavy in the bow," Powell said, like a movie producer talking to an agent about an actress. "They're .putting lead in her stern." Then he gave me the lowdown on Ray Milland's lost weekend and what Jimmy Cagney whispered to him and why Edgar Bergen has a sore foot. He also repeated what he had heard about Burt Lancaster and his "Baby Doll." "I think that's what he calls her," he said, "but he's getting rid of her after only one season." THIS WAS A NEW KIND of Hollywood gossip—the waterfront gossip of the Newport-Balboa Bay area where a number of celebrities' live and go down to the sea. As a member of. the yachting set, Powell laughed: "It's just like Hollywood except all the gossip is about boats." Like the electrolysis which has brought Powell's "Caprice" more notoriety than Lana Turner's love affairs. He found it on the bottom of "Caprice," the 55-foof steel hull diesel cruiser he bought in the east. The waterfront gossip was that Powell brought in a retired expert from the Navy after Cecil, his handyman, stuck a paint brush right through the bottom. "That's' right," Powell said.. "We put her in drydock and replaced a couple of 4 by 8 foot plates. I've had her for a year and we're still working on her." WE HAD THE IDEA of talking to Powell about the three movies he will produce for Fox and about the big success of his Four Star films for TV and his fifth-year as "Zane Grey Theater" host, but he had all his waterfront gossip and . . . well, Well, the "Lady Claire" is a new boat which Claire Trevor and her husband Milton Bren had built only to discover she was too heavy in the bow. "Every time I see Milton now," Dick chuckled, "I kid about the lead in his stern." RAY MHJLAND'S lost weekend came after only, six weeks as owner of the late Humphrey Bogart's big sailboat, the "Santana." Powell and Jimmy Cagney were down at the docks—it was- before Dick bought the "Caprice" and he was shopping for a boat—when they spotted the "Santana" under power in "the main channel. "Ray," remembers Powell, "was all dressed up in blue suit with, a lot of'gold on his yachting cap and he wa^ giving orders to his skipper. "They turned into her slip and Ray ordered the engine reversed. But the clutch slipped and the boat went right up on the dock and then slid back into the slip." Cagney looked at me and said: " 'Let's go home. T think you can buy the Santana tomorrow.' "He was right. Next day we went to the shipyard 'where the ,boat was being repaired and a yacht salesman walked up to us and said, 'Don't tell anyone I told you, but Bay MiUand wants' to sell the Santaria.' I bought it three days later." EDGAR BERGEN;S PRIDE is a little Monterey fishing boat with a "one-cylinder .engine. "To start it," Powell said, "he kicks a crank with his foot. He says he always has a sore.foot and now he wants to .buy a tugboat." $172,110 In Permits Issued By Building Commission in Month Total value of building permits issued during September was 5172,110, i according to ; building commissioner' John Anderson. This was over $7,000 higher than the. total, for September of 1959. Included in the permits were seven for new homes at a total cost of.$98,000; nine carports and garages,' $7,550; 10 business arid indusMal projects, $38,450; and 62 for remodeling, $28,110. In a $7,500 purse'at the Atlantic City thoroughbred meeting, the winner takes down $4,500. In the minimum/claimer of $2,500, the winner :gets $1,500. , . Remind That Sewers Must Be Hooked In With two weeks to the sewer hook in deadline, there are still about M residences to be connected, the building commissioners office said Friday.' Oct. 15 is the deadline. At the present lime, 8M residences have been connected to the new sewage system. ' Mayor Otto Neumann said Friday that the board of works still plans to uphold the.city ordinance which provides for penalties on i persons failing" to connect. A fine of J25 can be assessed and each day constitutes a separate offense. The city calls attention to the decision in the following release: The public is reminded again that any property owner or renter living on property where a new sewer is available, must have made a sewer connection before October 15, I960. Any property where a sewer permit has not been issued by October 15, 1960 will have a charge of one hundred twenty-five dollars" (125.00) placed on their next utility bill. The customer must then make arrangements with the Utility Commercial Office for payment of the bill and with .the Building Commissioner's Off ice'for a sewer permit. Failure to do so caiuresult in the :• assessment of twenty-five dollars (125.00) a day for every day after October 15, 1960 until the sewer connection is completed. In addition, unpaid sewer bills will be assessed against the property. There are still over, one hundred persons who have 'riot arranged for sewer permits.' Ray Rupert, Office Manager of the Utility Commercial Office suggested that renters contact 'their landlords immediately so that the landlord can make arrangements for payment 'of the. permit. He also suggested that persons requesting a time payment application for sewer permit make sure that both husband and wife come to the Commercial Office, since both signatures' are required." Nurseries In Swiss Towns Aid Mothers . BIENNE, Switzerland (UPI) The bosses in this town make it easy for mothers'" who want to help bring home the bacon. They provide nurseries for the children, both infants and school- age boys and girls. The nurseries are staffed with young women trained in the art of handling children. Usually, the substitute mothers earn more than the moms bent over the production line in the i'actories. Typical of the modern nurseries is 'one at the Omega Watch Co. in Bienne — a factory that expects its hired hands to put in 48 hours a week. The home away from home for the children is a two story modern building with lots of windows, playgrounds and bright colors. Inside, there are play tables, a little gym, a dining room, sleeping units. The interior, of course, is subdivided into sections for babes in arms, for toddlers, and for school children. The school children are taught to report to the nursery when school lets out. They do their homework and get in a little pl»y while waiting for their mothers to finish up on the production line. This eliminates the problem so often encountered by working mothers of school-age children. That is — the chance of the children being on their own at home until their mothers return from work. The infant section of the nursery, at the time I toured the place, housed eight babies, including one just six we^ks old. • The babies apparently get their fair share of tender, loving care. Only one, a little fellow about 3 months old was squealing. I patted him on the ' back for a while and he stopped crying. The nurseries aren't completely free, although the major costs are met by the firm. The mothers pay around $1 a day for each child in th« nursey. The trend toward nurseries for the children of working mothers is one that is' weU developed throughout Europe. The Russians are said to have the widest network of such nurseries. ARREST FIVE INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Disorderly conduct charges face five youths after a fight broke out Friday night between Indianapolis Tech and Muncie Central High School football fans. Charged were John Rust, 22, and John Campbell,21, both of Muncie; Ted Smile, 19; David Armitage, 20, and Donald Pierce, Jl, ill of Indianapolis. Tech won the game, 6-0. • JACOBY ON BRIDGE SOUTH WATCHED TOO CLOSELY This week's articles will- be devoted to hands from this summer's national tournament. We start with a defensive play by NORTH VA10986 4 AK-10 + 108 - EAST *QJ872 VQ2 • J74 +KJ2 SOUTH (D) AA543 WEST' *9 VJ754 « Q862 + Q743 • 953 + A965 North and South vulnerable South West North East- Pass Pass IV 1 A 1N.T. Pass -2N.T. Pass 3N.T. Pass Pass Pass Opening lead — jtt 9 Curtis Smith of .Austin, Texas. _ Curtis sat West and opened the nine of spades against the three no-trump contract. South ''needed four heart tricks for his contract and his normal line of play would be to play king, ace and ten of hearts in order. This play :would give him four heart tricks against any threerthree break or against any singleton or doubleton honor. In this case East held the doubleton queen.. However, when South led the king of hearts Curtis followed with the five spot and, of course, East played the deuce. On the lead of the heart three Curtis continued his deception by playing the seven and now South had a problem. True enough, the fact that Curtis had played the five and seven had not changed the original probabilities at all. He could be falsercarcU ing (and actually was), but Curtis looks "Very young and innocent at the table. . South thought a while longer and finally decided that Curtis had played the five and seven because they were his only'low hearts and that he was left either with one honor in which case all plays would work, or both honors in which case the winning play would be to finesse •gainst them. Hence South called for dummy's nine and'bad to lose two heart tricks and his contract. Cold Weather Just Ahead! Keep Them Warm in One of These Wonderful Car Coats!
