WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY, 16, 1955 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVE Talk of 3rd Party Nonsense-Dirkson By JACK BELL . WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. Dirksen (R-I11) termed "nonsense 1 * today speculation that a third party movement may grow out of Republican criticism of Eisenhower administration policies. Dirksen said he believes a Chicago seminar of Midwestern Republicans who style themselves "conservatives" .served as "a good session to ventilate some irritations." Gov. J. Bracken Lee of Utah told that meeting; .the government had moved rapidly to the left in the past two years, and he .spoke of the possibility of a third party. Later, however, Lee said, "I merely threw this in as a suggestion. I believe the American people have a right to vote on ihe present trend." Dirkften, another .speaker at the Chicago gaiherjng-, held Saturday, said in an interview today that any third party talk is "jusi nonsense" stud not .supported by others who were critical of some administration policies. He commented in advunce of a closed session of a seven-member subcommittee of the Republican National Committee to consider bids from Chicago, Situ FruneLsco and Philadelphia for the party's 195G nominating- convention. The subcommittee will make its recommendnlions to the full national committee tomorrow in a day's session which includes a luncheon with President Eisenhower. Democrats plan to hold their 1956 convention in Chicago July 23. Within GOP ranks, new criticism of Eisenhower came irom Sen, Lanager (R-NDt, who has voted often with the Democrats. Langer told the National Rural Electric Cooperative Assn. at Atlantic City. N.J., last night Eisenhower is hf.Mding an administration "that is the willing handmaiden of (he pciwer monopoly." "We are witness today to a scene of unparalleled giveaways of the public domain," Langer de clared. "I do not know what Presi-1 dent Eisenhower's place in history will be, but I feel that if he continues in his present road, his memory will be hallowed in the Banker's Club in New York a.s •(he generous president in history.'

Pretty Taina Elg Is Finland's First Offering to Hollywood By BUB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD I*—Finland's contribution to Hollywood Is lovely Taina Elg-, who learned to be a ballerina alter escaping Russian bombs. Taina (rhymes with Dinah) is H and full of grace. She has a willowy figure, long dark-blonde hair and a fresh, shiny-cheeked face. As far as she knows and according to lilm historians, she Is the first acting importation from Finland. This seems strange, since Hollywood has acquired many Scandinavian stars, especially from Sweden. Excellent Theatre "I don't know why it is," said Tniua. "We certainly have an excellent theater in Finland and many good actor.s. Perhaps it is the language. It is quite difficult lor Finns to learn English. Finnish is derived from Scandinavian or Russian; it goes 'way back to early ages, the same as Hungarian." I'aina's tangle with English turned out successfully. She speaks it with scarcely an accent, having begun to learn when she went with the Sadler's Wells ballet troupe in London. riiirm spoke hesitantly of her e U'ly years in Finland. She grew up at a time when that industrious cc'jnlry was ravaged by war with I Ru-ssia. "During the war, I went to Sweden for three months with a group of Finnish children and to Norwaj for a similar period," she said. "It was partly to escape the Russian bombs, but also so we could eat. There was a danger of tuberculosis if children didn't gel the right nourishment." Started at 10 It was during the Swedish visit that Taina got her first start toward fame. Ever since she had seen the Monte Carlo ballet at li she had wanted to be a dancer. She was 10 when she visited Sweden and began taking ballel lessons there. She continued them when she returned to Helsinki studying for six years at the Pin- Opera. She danced with the company for a year at the Grand Theater in Stockholm, making such a hit that she was awarded a scholarship with England's famed Sadler's Wells. After her studies there, she couldn't get a labor permit to" dance in England, so she joined the Monte Carlo ballet, appearing all over Europe and in the United States. MOM producer Edwin Knopf saw her at a party in London and tabbed her as a film prospect. I She was brought here a year ago and has spent most of her time in j diction, acting, singing and dancin;; ; lessons. She played a role as Lam-. I Turner's handmaiden in "The Prodigal" and will do a similar chore in "Diane." MOM promises big things for her. The word "hieroglyphic" comes from the Creek and means "sacred carving."
