And then, after she started a tour of the country dancing she was stricken with polio. Six months ago the doctors told her she would never dance again, that she would be fortunate if she ever walked. But determination to continue in the profession for which she had sacrificed a cinema contract proved as valuable to her recovery as the doctors' advice. Today Nita Bieber heads her own dancing group at the Hub Club of the Sheraton-Plaza and it looks as if she will have no lasting effects from the disease. Savs Nita, "I didn't want to be come an actress even after I signed my first contract with Columbia. And while 1 planned to devote my self entirely to dancing when I was taken to M-G-M for a test, they had other ideas. "Yes, they let me dance in 'Nancy Goes to Rio' I did a Cuban number in that one. And in 'Summer Stock' I played a role as Sarah Hig-gins. a studious girl who suddenly lets her hair down and goes into a wild modern number. Then came a C uban dance in 'Woman Without a Passport' with Hedy Lamarr and Jack Hodiak. "But then they decided to dress me like Jane Powell and make me a teen-ager with bobbed hair. That's when I said, 'I'll dance, if you please. I worked too hard learning my job to give it up for acting, of which I know nothing.' "The trouble about acting is that you ought to work just as hard to be a good actress as you do to become a dancer. And as I had always studied dancing I didn't think I was cut out to act in stellar roles in pictures." NITA BIEBER Just to prove it isn't easy to dance every night at the Sheraton- Plaza, Nita makes up every inch of her body with pancake makeup be fore she goes on the floor. It takes her an hour and a half to get ready for about 15 minutes of dancing, and she ruins her street clothes coming down to her dressing room from her bedroom. Some Bostonians think her Cuban dances are too bold, too unre strained. "When a certain Mrs. So-and-So walks into the room they whisper to me, 'Do the Hindu number to night,'" laughed Miss Bieber. "Isn't that silly, especially as the Cuban dance is a truly authentic number that you see- often in night clubs there.'' SITTING IN ON TV The New People By TED ASHBY Seemingly America now has a completely new class of people. They live in television studios. At least you never see them arrive or depart. So it is fairly reasonable to assume they reside there permanently. They have strikingly similar tastes in entertainment. No matter how frightful the show, they applaud like everything at its conclusion. It would be refreshing to see, just once, one of them loping toward the exit in the middle of a performance. Normally the studio resident lives very simply. He just sits there and applauds. Sometimes he is permitted through the audience microphone a lusty guffaw. This generally is in response to a cue from out of camera range. It matters not whether anything particularly funny has been said or done. ... , The folcs who move into television studios and remain, seem in some instances to feel they must laugh almost hysterically to be sure the home viewers know the show is awfully funny. Not infrequently the gales of laughter from the studio inhabitants are clear out of proportion with the quality of the humor. This can get pretty annoying. And some producers use an audience to the point where it is a real menace. There are instances in which it nearly makes the performer inaudible. Of course, the studio lodger is deeply grateful to the sponsor for supplying him a place to dwell. ... Some masters of ceremonies have discovered what a cooperative person the studio tenant is. Checking programs for this sort of thing, you find some incredible situations. At a breakfast party program, he'll sing, wave to someone in Kansas City, cheer for a lady at Ashtabula, O. ... The studi(5 incumbent will obediently arise and march around the tables. "How is everybody?" Ruth Lyons cried out on her ."50 Club." Everyone yelled back: "Fine!" Now. surely, someone in the group of studio colonists was feeling pretty miserable. ... Studio squatters obligingly answer the most intimate questions. Personal queries such as: "How did your husband propose to you?" I. for one. am eagerly looking forward to that delightful moment when a studio roomer draws himself up and replies: "That's none of your blasted business" 1 Portraits By JAMES J.
