The alleged love scene was described by James Craig, an independent movie producer, who flew from London and became the first defense witness. The defense has said it will fight Ihe libel charge by proving stories published about stars in Confidential anc its sister publication, \Yhisper, were true. Craig testified the incident oc- cun-ed in November 1953 when he was assistant manager of Grauman's Chinese Theater in Hollywood.

Ward: "In an effort to be charitable to Mr. entirely mistaken either in his identity of me or in his testimony." She said she has been on call as prosecution witness for the past two weeks and is "ready and anxious to testify as to the complete falsity of the Confidential article and as to Mr. Craig's testimony. "f will prove by my passport and at least 10 other witnesses that it was physically impossible for me to have been in the theater during November 1953.

Call In A (-(inn ^au tu rtvllUu Meantime, Hollywood indigna- :ion over sensational testimony in .he trial brought a cal! to action from actor George Murphv, Murphy, whose many public appearances about the country have made him filmland's unofficial ambassador of good will, declared: "We've got to set up the machinery to prevent such a thing as this Confidential trial from ever happening again."

Murphy, president of the Motion Picture Industry Council and director of public relations for MGM studio, proposed establishment of a permanent organization. He said it would hire the "best legal coun- sel" to expose publication of what he called falsehoods about Hollywood notables.
