PAGS TElf BLYTHEVILLB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS TUESDAT, MABCH Nixon Tells California GOP: Republicans Need Strength By BILL BECKER LOS ANGELES (AP) — Vice President Richard M. Nixon has sounded a call to California's Republicans — perhaps the strongest segment, of the GOP — to build a majority party by 1956. The young vice president, at President Eisenhower's behest, urged 2,6000 fellow southern California Republicans in one of three speeches yesterday to prepare "to do a big job this year and next." Nixon said bluntly the GOP won in J952 only because of its strong candidate and added: "The Republican party today is. not strong enough to elect a president." Nixon gave this insight into the President's views: "The cm rent situation is one'the President feels we should remedy and that's why he's taking hold of the Republican leadership at this time. He believes it's his responsibility to build the party so its strength will be as strong as that of the President himself," California, despite the Democratic trend nationally in the 1954 election, voted in 19 Republican and only 11 Democratic representatives 10 the. House. Its two sen- Republicans. Yet Democrats hold a substantial registration edge, as they do nationally. . Nixon did not disclose (he President's intentions for 1956 but said significantly: "I hope to work for the President again In 1956. The best way to see that he runs again is to build party power to the point where we can become the majority party." Tlie President sent a telegram here lauding Nixon for "his courage ano honesty" which "have earned him the respect of all who seek a better and stronger America." Before returning to Washington by plane, Nixon addressed the Los .Angeles World A/fairs Council last night on the administration's plans for boosting- latin-American trade. Nixon, who recently toured Central America and the Caribbean area, said those countries need more markets, capital, technical assistance and better communications. Private capital investment could handle most of the development, he said, but some govern- ment loans ard lower tariff barriers would be needed. "Communism has reached and passed its high water mark in the inter-American area," he said, predicting "more progress in Guatemala under Castillo Armas in the next two years than there was under a Communist government in the last 10."

He's a Texan, naturally. George Raborn, a sports writer for the Waco-News Tribune, sees more movies than the head usher at Radio Ctiy Music Hall. Since 1932 he has seen 5,508 movies. He sn\v 500 before that- but they don't count because he didn't keep individual records on them. Raborn, who doesn't own a tele- vison set or a wife, has attended movies in 36 different states and five foreign countries. He has seen as many as 402 movies in one year. One month he saw 77. Doesn't Wear Glasses He does not wear glasses. Not only does he see all the movies, good and bad, that Hollywood produces but rates them all scien- tilically. That's how this town heard of him. He's just published a book called "How Hollywood Rates." Raborn rates each star in each picture he has seen basing his charts on face, physique and talent. "These ratings are done scientifically," he writes, "And I don't know myself who has won until I've checked, double-checked and triple-checked the final averages. Final averages don't matter in these ratings because some of my own favorites are ranked very low." Here are some of his.ratings: All-time male superstar — Clark Gable. All-time female superstar— Lana Turner. Most handsome — Rock Hudson. Best actor—Frederic March. Best actress—Bette Davis. All-time most beautiful — Lana Turner. All-time best figure—Ruth Roman. All-time most sex appeal- Marilyn Monroe. Best comedian—Groucho Marx. Best comedienne—Judy Holiday. Best movie—"A Place in the Sun' 1951. Worst all-time movie—"White Pongo" 1945. He also lists the 50 worst performances by actors and actresses but I'm a devout coward and live here. Waco, a long ways off, even for an angry actor to seek revenge. ALMOST Bubonic plague, in the 14th century, came closer to exterminating; the human race than any other scourge. More than 60 million persons are believed to have died of the disease.

Gibb said Praeer, carrying a shiny Wack briefcase, went around telling housewives he was an inspector in the city health department.
