THURSDAY, MARCH 30, 1939 GABLE, CAROLE LOMBARD WED Honeymoon Will Be Deferred Until Next Summer by Film Couple k HOLLYWOOD, (^--Fun-loving Clark Gable and Carole Lombard, who wrote the long-anticipated happy ending to the story o£ their courtship in a little Arizona town late Wednesday, returned early Thursday to the bride's Bel- Air home. ·Exhausted by their 750-mile trip, they retired, to wait until later to move into the home on his one-mule San Fernando valley ranch which Gable redecorated in preparation tor the wedding. Friends were not surprised when neivs of the ceremony reached here Wednesday night, although their absence from the film capital during the day had gone unnoticed. The marriage had been expected daily since the screen's No. 1 masculine star was given his freedom earlier this month by his second wife, Maria. IVcd in Gable, 38, and his 'blond bride, 31, a top-ranking comedienne, chose Kingman, Ariz., a desert railroad community, for the rites in preference to filmdom's more favored Greina Greens, Yuma · Ariz., and Les Vegas, Nev. They traveled by automobile instead of by plane, as have most other elopers. They stopped briefly at a state checking station in Daggett, where an inspector said Gable was sleeping soundly, Miss Lombard appeared drowsy and their companion, Otto Winkler, publicity man, was driving. Will Defer Honeymoon Gable was due back on the Se!z- mck Jot late Thursday to continue work as Rhett Butler in. "Gone! With -the Wind." Friends said the! couple expected to defer a honey moon until summer, when botl are free o£ picture engagements. Gable's ranch was purchase some months ago. He has spen almost all his spare time there plowing and helping care for hi citrus grove. For four years, he and Mis Lombard have been indulging ·gags," at the other's expense Carol's latest was the gift of "Bes sic," a mule, to Gable on his birth day last month. "Bessie" is" a fa vored resident of the ranch. Once she gave him an old Mod ct T Ford for a Valentine's gift, and he responded by parking a fire engine on her front lawn. When he gave what she considered a poor performance, she sent him a ham with his picture on it. Th actress, who delights in the "screwball" roles she made popular first in "My Man Godfrey,' once arrived at a party in an am- oulance, pretending she was ill jable paid her marked attention throughout -the evening. They first met in 1932 in a pic- .ure, and socially at a party a yeai later. Since 1935, when Gable and Mana Gable separated, they have been frequent companions at film affairs.

DALADIER GIVES ILDUCE REPLY Declares First Step in Settlement Is Up to Italians ' PARIS, (U.R--Premier 'Edouar. Daladier Wednesday night answered Premier Benito Mussolini's claims on Djibouti, Tunisia and the Suez canal by accusing the Italian, dictator of uttering false statements and said that Rome must take the first step toward a settlement. In a blunt reply to Mussolini's Sunday speech in Home asserting fascism's "vital rights" in the Mediterranean, Daladier warned flat the French nation would arise as one man" and fight if necessary, to resist any Italian territorial grab. Now Up to Mussolini Daladier--now a dictator almost as powerful as JMussolini--spoke )ver the radio and his speech was broadcast in five languages, in- ·luding Italian to ail parts of the French empire. The Italo-French dispute ap- eared to have been tossed back nto the lap of Mussolini, with the next move up Jo him. France will negotiate, Daladier aid, but only on the basis of her 93a accord with Italy which Mussolini denounced last Dec 17 Only on that basis, with specific proposal from Italy, can a settlement result "in the spirit of ciuity," Daladier said. "A peaceful and powerful ranee can regard the future with onfidehce," he added. Denies Demands Outlined Daladier refuted Mussolini's imday statement -that the fascist emands on France were outlined n the Italian note of Dee. 17 de- ouncing the 1935 Laval-Musso- ini accord. "I affirm that it contained othing specific and no reference 0 the Suez, Djobouti or Tunisia," ·aladier said. "It simply said that taly considered the 1935 accord ull and sought to justify that at- tude.". Daladier lumped Mussolini and uehrer Adolf Hitler o£ Germany ogether in accusing the dictator- nips of imperiling European peace y their "perpetual will to con- uest." Similarity Is Seen He spoke of the similarity be- veen Hitlers demands for "the ght of self-determination" and lussolini's demands for "vital pace." "How can Europe thus fail to be n.the alert?" he asked. "We won't cede an inch of ter- tory or a single one of our gnts," said Daladier at the out- et of his speech. Then he turned to an ominous armng of F r e n c h fighting trength, noting Mussolini's boast MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE of last Sunday that might Is the guiding principle of Italian foreign policy. "France Getting Stronger" 'France hopes to save peace because she hates war," Daiadier said. "But if war is imposed on her or if it is offered as the only alternative to decline or dishonoi she will arise as one man for defense of her liberty." "The international crisis did not mt a weak and disconcerted .trance," Daladier continued. "To the contrary, despite the crisis France is undergoing a renajc- sance." Air Ya Listemim?
