Mamie Von Doren Speaks Out In Defense of Small Bustlines b By JAMES BACON HOLLYWOOD Wl—The "perfect" 36" If a false and pliony wny of describing a good figure, says blonde actress Mamie Van Doren. Mamie, who measures 37 inches in the bustlinc nnd can afford to be unprejudiced, commented yesterday in an Interview: "It's the most dishonest measurement I ever saw. How can a bustline be tabulated that way when more than GO per cent of Die measuring has nothing to do with She has a point there us the current method of measuring bust- lines gives a break to bin-boned girls with broad backs. Tiny girls, who mistakenly stuff with cotton because they think nature has forgotten would get a break from Mamie (Honest Count) Van Dovcn. ••With all the talk about bust- lines caused by Christian Dior, I shout that now Is the time for a change." expounded Mamie. She objects to the "perfect 30' including the inches of horizontal areas occupied by the sides, shoulder blades and buck. "Marjorie (Ma Kettle) Main has i 42-inch bust and Barbara Bush fe a size 34," said Mamie. "That ought to give you an idea about how false these measurements have gotten." Mamie believes that a more honest measurement would be had U ttie tape measured flesh area from the serralus anterior across the pectorialls major to the meso- sternum. Multiply that answer by two and you have an honest count. In layman's language, she refers But Stevenson, making a 4,000- word broadcast lust night, never 4ulle got around to saying fl' ltlv lie islands .should or shouldn't defended.

Tax Due Slips Not Cashable DENVER (ff) — You just can't cash those tax due notices like checks, n government ottlcinl told COlorndoans yesterday. In plaintive tones, George H.

Wl — Prof. Walter Hovey of the University of Pittsburgh, back from a tour of Asia, says he found "very little respect for life and culture of tin- United States." People in such countries OK Lebanon, Iran, Irni|. Pakistan. India and Ceylon base their opinions of the U. S. on "mob slayings, stories of race Nenrot'u- tlon and movies, ' he says. "In some phices I was asked if it's safe to walk along the sheets alone in the United States "Most of the Near East nations Dream House Started Trouble SANTA MONICA. Calif. M Russoll Jj. Brand's sad story: from dream house to county jail. Brand said the dream house — a $(iO,000 home, built for a motion picture and awarded to him In a HMfl context — .started all Ills troubles.

Prof. Hnvcy says, "are In favoi of rrcopnl/.lnn Hi.-d China. Thosi countries are eager lo trade will China and as long as they belong lo tlu Wi tun bhu tho\ can't" 'otic lies Stevenson, who won lame as a wait when lie rau against Eisenhower for the presidency in 1052, !iad no light touches in lust night's talk, no lively phrasing, no memorable figures of speech. This country Is pledged to de- 'end Formosa, where Chiang Kal- tfiek lias his main Nationals' forces, but not lo defend the tiny Islands of .Quemoy and Eisenhower's position, as his administration explains It, Is to decide if the time comes whether n Red attack on Matsu and Qiiemoi would endanger Formosa suu therefore require American inter ventlon and war-with China. This lack of decision may puz .ilc the Reds and make them wary of a move that might end In war with the Unllqd States. But it hns also puzzled Americaus and causct the broadest kind of argument. Some of Elsenhower's own He publicans, particularly Sen. Know Ittnd of California, want the island:, defended. Some of Stevenson's own Democrats don't. May Be Kenson So Elsenhower, before he makes up his mind, Is enabled to Icnn what support he can expect a homo and abroad on any decisloi he makes. This may be the run utt&nii he hasn't made up his mint t least publicly. What was Stevenson's soliilioi for the Formosa problem that might take a long time li doing, too long, perhaps, if II Reds attack in these next few r.innths. He proposed; Ills country should try to Its allies and umrommiUcd nations to de<:lare opnn opposlllon to wn in the Formosa Blrait and "slam wllh us In defense of Porinosi iifjalnst iiKMi'es.'ilon," pending sonn final Hettlemunt.
