NEW YORK, Feb. 17.--She invented the one-piece bathing suit for gals and now look at the things! "\sn't it wonderful!" said Annette KeUerman today. "There's not much of it left, is there?" she asked approvingly, as she settled her luggage into a cabin aboard. a liner bound I for London. ' . . . . : Even 'way back in 1005 Annette, now Mrs. James R. Sullivan, thought the one-piece was here to . stay, despite shocked protests from police and pulpit. But when the Boston police arrested her some 30 years ago because of her.appearance in a daring one-piece; suit ·modeled 'after-a full complement of long underwear, she never 'dreamed of a day when backs, mucivless.slornachcs, would be.bared, to the wind;' ^javes and. watchers "Hardly enough of the bid one- piece bathing suit left to bother with," she murmured briskly; ~ as · she smoothed the skirt o£ a green silk dress over her slim self. "Today bathing suits are practically nude, and I love them," said the great feminine emancipator who pioneered ilie freedom of the seas for her sex, who converted limbs into legs and ivho bestowed leg art on a grateful American press and public. "These new bathing suits are a boon to humanity. They make women keep flt. A woman, would be ashamed lo be seen in one of these abbreviated suits if she didn't keep fit and sleek. You can't conceal bulges with two pocket-handkerchiefs and a prayer. "An'd I think it's \vonderful for men to wear only, shorts for battling ns long as they're'slim. But the. big, fat ones who look like flabby jelly fish--ugh. 1 They ought to be ashamed to be. seen in public," she declared with vim andyvigoT. "They ought to keep-fit or swim in a barrel." It might be noted at this point that Miss Kellerman doesn't need .to keep a barrel handy. She filled that suit of long underwear to perfection in Boston in the old days--which is probable one of the things the local Anthony Comstocks had against the aqiiatie man-el from Australia. And she fills the new semi-nude suits to perfection in 1939. "My weight's been the same for 20 years," she said in her pleasant, clipped British accent. She exercises as much as ever, swims daily..and plays a fast game of tennis. - The "form divine" .of "the diving Venus," as she was billed for many years, is still just that. Her eyes are.still an intense blue and her skin smooth and firm. "It isn't .the modern bathing suits I object to; it's the hats," she laughed. · "I'm on my way to Australia and I don't intend to come back until American hats return to normal. These artichokes that women wear on tht foreheads nowadays. Honestly, those hats, combined with, this new up-hair-do make any woman over 17 look like a skinned rabbit," she said, pattins her own black bob, still %vorn medium long. The woman who was to her generation what Sonja Henie is -to this is on her way to Australia, her home-land, for a two-year visit. Her American husband, who has been her spouse and manager for 20 years, is accompanying her. "It's all this war talk that's done it," she said in discussing her trip. "I want to go home to see my brother and sister. They were both in the last war. And, if worse comes- to worse, which God forbid, I want to try to interest the Australian government in a national campaign to keep people fit in wartime. I guess one never gets over love of his country." Miss Kellerman. owns .a self-supporting island in the Great Barrier Reef, more than 1,500 miles from Sidney, where she was born. She and Mr. Sullivan will spend most of their time on this island, which is managed by her brother and sister. "Yes," she ..laid with a smile, "I'm able to' do what I like. I'm not very rich, probably, but I'm independent. I saved the money I made in America, which is really the greatest coun~ try in.the world. - G«orge Gufeor The long-deferred motion picture, "Gone with the Wind," ran into .. raoro '.-grief. when : .its director, : ; Geofge-'Cnkor,..announced he was quitting the job.' Disagreement with his boss, Producer David O. Selznick, on handling of scenes was blamed as the reason. .'. .

This was the order here after a special town meeting approved a revision in the town's by-laws, sponsored, by the local branch ,of the Catholic Daughters of America. Furthermore, says the new law, ; no person more than 10 jyears of. age without personal covering shall swim.or bath in.,any o£ the waters surrounding or within the town so as'to'.be visible'from any street, public grounds, dwelling house building, boat, steamboat or vessels." Halters and "immodest dress" were linked wilh '/shorts' 1 in the under- the-overcoat order. · The "shorts" issue divided the town into two camps, i The school o: thought favoring freedom for "shorts" declared: "Are we going to have a Nazi regime in this lown, and tell people what they can wear, when they can wear it and how?"
