Six Logansport. Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Meeting Ss Stormy for Film Firm NEW YORK (UPD-Stockhold- ers of 20th Century Fox displayed mixed emotions Tuesday when told the company .lost $22.5 million last year and was sinking $30 million into the oft-delayed movie "Cleopatra." President Spyros P. Skouras told a capacity crowd at the company's annual meeting'here .the costly film is nearing. completion in Rome. The statement brought applause: Earlier, shareholders were critical of the-reported •$! to :$3 million salary being paid actress Elizabeth Taylor, who has the title role in the movie. "It's sheer lunacy to pay $1 million to any star," complained Mrs. Irene Martin of Hollywood; Cklif. Gloria Parker of Brooklyn, N.Y. suggested Miss Taylor be made a director. She said .the actress was making so much money she ought to be one. The management's director slate was reelected, however. Skouras said 20th Century Fox was embarking on an economy drive. He said he was taking a voluntary $45,000 pay cut from 'his ?139,000 salary. Skouras tried briefly to quiet the unruly stockholders at one .point by telling them they would be shown some scenes from several new 20th Century films. "We came here on business— not to be entertained," shouted one shareholder. Skouras told the estimated 300 stockholders the gross from "Cleopatra" would be $150 million when it is released next February. He asked -them to be patient and said within a week Miss Taylor would be needed only for some close-up scenes. It was this remark that earned Skouras ihe only applause he re< ceived during the three-hour ses- Grange News ONWARD Members of the Onward Grange will meet at 8 p.m. Thursday at the Grange hall to honor high school seniors.

Wednesday Evening, May 18, 1863 Final Federal Hearing Slated, For State Civil Defense Chief INDIANAPOLIS (UPI)-A 'federal hearing to determine whether Indiana Civil Defense Director •Robert S. Bates violated'the Hatch Act went'into a second; and probably final,; session here today. . The> hearing resumed with the U.S. Civil Service Commission presenting the last of its witnesses against Bates and his former public • relations director, Samuel Stone. Government attorneys Malcolm Littlefield and Clarence Tant produced .evidence Tuesday afternoon that cards' urging, employes to contribute 2 per cent of their paychecks to the Democratic Party had been laid upon the-desks', of CD employes last June. But the witnesses were unable to say how the cards got there. The Hatch Act bans political activities in departments partially or wholly supported by federal funds. Testimony Tuesday was that one employe, 'Miss Callie Kerhoulas, a Republican, was tired from her CD job last October. She had refused to contribute to; the Democratic-Party. However,-other.GOP employes of the same department who testified, they refused to contribute or gave only a .small sum, still are continuing in their same jobs. . ,• Bates .and Stone, -who are represented by .Deputy Atty. Gen. Addi- son Dowling and Paul Brady, were to place several witnesses on the stand today after the government completed ;ts case. Windup of the hearing is scheduled for late today but a verdict may not be forthcoming for several months. Indiana could be -penalized by -forfeiture of about $40^000 in federal funds should the Hatch Act charges be substantiated. Miss Kerhoulas said that a card suggesting the 2,per cent contribution to.the Democrats was on her desk when she reported for work one morning last June. She said it appeared about a week after Bates talked to her during a coffee break regarding such a contribution. She said that Bates emphasized during the conversation that contributions .would be "strictly voluntary." Miss Kerhoulas said she did not know how the card was placed on •her desk. Orval H. Barnes, assistant director of the department and also a Republican, said he had a similar conversation with Bates regarding a contribution to the Democratic Party and found a similar card on his desk,.He said he "threw it in the waste basket." Barnes told Littlefield he'did not get the impression it was necessary to contribute. .' '. LHS Chorus :'"iv'.'. for" Kiwanicms The Logansport high school chorus, under the direction o!
