OPEN NEW FIELDS "All business is solidly behind this program," E. S. Dulin. Ange-leno on the N.A.M. board, said. "The pioneer of old has been made famous in song and legend. Let's not wait generations to honor these 'Daniel Boones' who explore today's frontiers of science and engineering to open up new fields of work, comfort in living and public progress. "The movement is in celebration of the 150th anniversary of the American patent system which Lincoln said 'adds the fuel of incentive to the fire of genius. The principle of just reward for initiative embodied in the patent system is a fundamental American principle." SPONSORING UKOIT Headquarters for the movement locally is the Metal Trades Manufacturers' Association. On Ihe local banquet sponsoring rommittee, Dulin said, are Mayor Bowron, Donald Douglas, Rufus von Kleinbmtfl, victor n. no-setti, President A. J.

FUND CHEATED Each $150 less money for living expenses for himself and wife, the former Jeanette Bou-telle, onetime motion-picture actress has gone into a fund from which the trim 42-foot two-master Ruana has slowly taken shape. The craft, fitted with a Diesel auxiliary and completely equipped, now floats lightly in the west basin of Los Angeles Harbor. Come spring and the YVilseys will be shoving off. DISCLOSE PLANS They disclosed something of their plans the other day as they i sat side by side, lovingly finger ing the spokes of the Ruana's steering wheel. "We're heading first for the Marquesas Islands," Wilsey said. "We'll make Tahiti our base and ithen we're starting for the i islands off the coast of New Guinea. I hear there are some golden-skinned beauties there ." "Some what?" Mrs. Wilsey demanded. "I mean," the skipper amended hastily, "there's a golden-skinned race of people on those ;V I ....' .,'.: f ' ' ' if ; -V.

The Mexican Communist party today called for the formation of a Popular Front movement in Mexico to protect the Mexican revolution against United States-supported "internal reaction and external imperialism." A five-point statement Issued by the party also criticized the administration of President La-zaro Cardenas, asserting "Although the people have obtained advantages during the regime of Gen. Cardenas, the masses find themselves in a state of misery, oppression and grave ignorance."

But now, says ne, times are bard and he'd like to have a job. Jefferson told his story to Su perior Judge Thomas C. Gould while attempting to have his alimony payments to his divorced wife, Mrs. Cherrie Armour Jefferson, 31, cut from $200 to ?75 a month. MEETS REVERSES The court ordered Jefferson to make the alimony payments for four years when Mrs. Jefferson won the divorce decree on Nov. 16, 1938. Since, Jefferson pleaded, he has met with financial re verses which have left him with out a job and without funds. Opposing her former husband s petition, Mrs. Jefferson filed an affidavit in which she contended that Jefferson had made "fabu lous sums" in the last few years, and that at one time he was al lowed "so-called expense ac counts by his employers of more than $100,000 a year. CHARGE MADE Even now, Mrs. Jefferson added, Jefferson squanders money in lavish entertainment of women friends at his home in Glendale. The court put; off further hear ing until Feb. 29, advising both sides to try for a settlement of the controversy meanwhile.
