Immaculately attired in his black-tie outfit, Francis X. Bushman, first of the great screen lovers, came to the microphone at the red-carpeted entrance to the Carthay Circle theater. Don Wilson introduced him and 5,000 people, gathered in the bleachers to witness preliminary festivities attending the preview of "Wilson," roared out their recognition. Francis Xavier was visibly moved. He shouted through the mike that he was "proud and gratified to be associated with such a tremendous production" and then he walked into the theater to discover that his role of Barney Baruch had been cut to a flash. That's Hollywood heartbreak for you. And there were still other stop-and-think moments at the "Wilson" premiere, easily the biggest of its kind since pre-war days. Mary Pickford, one time "America's Sweetheart," came in dressed in Little-Red-Riding-Hood style, husband Lieut. Buddy Rogers, U.S.N ., at her side. What memories must have rushed back to Mary as she sat watching the story of the man who was President when she was the screen's top lady especially when an old news-reel shot showed her in a rollicking liberty bond rally scene with the late Douglas Fairbanks, to whom she was wed at the time in Hollywood's "ideal romance." When you iook around a movie set, and above it, noting the large number of moveable lamps and j other loose pieces of picture-making machinery you begin to wonder why more serious accidents do not occur during the making of movies. Bette Davis' narrow escape from serious injury on "The Corn is Green" set recently again revives the old cry for greater safety measures. Bette was sitting at a small desk, actually shooting a scene when, without warning, a "barndoor" lamp fitting fell from the rafters some forty feet above her head. The lamp crashed on to the small Fanatical Group of Germans Roamed Through Falaise, Sniping at Canucks By Richard Sanburn War Correspondent of The Evening Citizen and Southam NewnpHpera. OVERLOOKING FALAISE, Aug, 17 (Delayed) Canadian Army Headquarters said the Germans could no longer use Falaise for anything, that the Canadians had passed right through it during Wednesday night, that Canadians now-surrounded it on three sides and Canadians were inside it. but we couldn't say Falaise was captured. This is the strange sort of thing that happens in this war, a situation where you have something, to all intents and purposes, but still you haven't really got it. This afternoon I drove in a jeep to the fringe of Falaise and looked down a lovely- street of greystone homes imbedded deep in great trees that seemed to overflow from every garden. It looked peaceful, but it was not really ours yet. Canadians were still being wounded and killed down that street, sniped at and shot at by a fanatic group of Germans who roamed through the debris, hid in cellars, sent machine-gun fire down narrow cross streets to maim or kill anybody who tried to cross intersections. Those Germans didn't have a chance of living, some of them have undoubtedly died in the hour since I left there, but that is the way some Germans still right. Tough Getting In At a forward command post I talked to the man who commanded Canadian troops busy capturing Falaise. Born and educated in Winnipeg, he was a bugle boy in the last war. He told me how this city can be our and not ours at the same time. He was dirty, dusty and tired from having had no sleep for two nights and had just been shot at by one of those crazy Nazis still in Falaise roving through the rubble like preying beasts. "The toughest part was getting into the town," he said. "They had 50 to 75 machine-gun posts set up on the north and northwest outskirts of the town. They also had three tanks or self-propelled guns running through the streets and firing from all over the place. Then there were snipers everywhere, in cellars, behind rubble piles, and up on church steeples. "They had barricades across the bridges and in the streets. They had i .Ji- 1 ' V "1 "f 1 Rooms now available, with moderate weekly rates. Week-enders welcome, with room for a few or fifty. Group rate to four or more coming together.

Close-ups: Rosalind Russell, who is not 50, celebrating her fiftieth birthday anniversary for the script of "Roughly Speaking." Miss Russell looks a very smart 50 in her neat gray wig and body paddings. Birthday cake and all that sort of thing makes it a gala scene. . . . MGM checks on its file of Margaret O'Brien stories and discovers it has enough good material to keep her going until her "deb" days. . . . Warners are having tough luck with the remake of "The Petrified Forest," now titled "Strangers In Our Midst." It has just taken on its third director. One of the stars told us: "It was a darned fine picture years ago. They can't improve on it. Why don't they leave well enough alone!" . . . MGM has arranged a "Seventh Heaven" romantic sequence for Judy Garland and Bob Walker in "The Clock." . . . Hollywood, home of movies, is usually one of the last cities in the United States to get a public look at its product.

Rudolf Friml Jr. is leading the orchestra on the "Hollywood Canteen" set as the Andrews sisters sing "Don't Fence Me In" a cowboy number by Cole Porter! Bill Powell never knew his wife, pint-sized Diana Lewis, could really act until he got up to Camp Roberts one night to witness one of her camp show performances with Red Skelton in "Girl Crazy." The show had been running several weeks and husband Powell, expecting nothing, was as goggle-eyed as any rookie over Diana's work. She has played several small parts in MGM movies but here she hod a chance to go to town for the first time. And she did. Now she is destined for special dramatic treatment at the studio. some little Infantry field guns and a bazooka like our Plat gun. They knew all the streets and corners and we didn't and nil In all lt was all in their favor and a sticky mess any way you look at it. That was Wed-neday afternoon about four p.m. "After we got into the fringes of the town snipers in church steeples raised hell. I phoned up the artillery boys and called for fire. Sorry we had to knock down some church spires but it was all we could do. One church went up in a real blaze of glory and burned all night. The Germans apparently had oil nnd gas stored In it. Fought All Night "All night the boys fought along the streets. About 2 a.m. today I went in to cheer them along and they were moving along chasing snipers by the red light of the I burning houses. "They got through the town and dug in on the east side of it about 3 a.m. Those damn guns were still dodging around the dark streets. It seems they would run up and down a street that parallelled our way through, stop at different intersections and shoot right across our path. We just couldn't find them. But they pulled out during the night. French Regiment There "Along about dawn we got another battalion through to close off Falaise from the south. Both these regiments that went through are from Western Canada. Still another regiment, French-speaking boys, moved into the town to clean it up. "When it got light an old man and his aged wife crawled out of their cellar to come and tell us where some Germans were. They stopped one of our officers in the street and as the old woman was pointing out the way to the Ger man hideout a Jerry shot her right through the head and she died in the street. We'got that Jerry later. "These German snipers have funny ideas. They think they can hang around a place like this and pick off our men one by one and then when they feel like it just wave a white rag and give up as prisoners. That's what they. think." That's how it went. Falaise was no good to the enemy. War had passed it by and people were beginning to forget about it as news poured in from the American drive ".. ''" CRRLSBRDOriTRRIO Come To The Springs" For ihc Good of Your Health A ronmv, restful, old-fashionetl guest - house on large private grounds in pleasant open country twelve miles east oi Ottawa on the Russell Road. towards the Seine and our new landing down south. But Falaise was still a very- real war to Canadians who had to fix it up so as we could say it was really "captured." Few Found Alive. So far only thirty of the inhabitants of Falaise have been found still living, heaven only knows how, in the ruins of this once prosperous market town of 5.000 where fine cheese and fine wine were the main interests of everybody. Nearly everybody had been forcibly evacuated by the Germans, but even today maybe five hundred refugees milled around on the road southeast of the city, going both ways, not really sure Just where they were going.' The whole corridor of our 'advance from Caen down that ruler-straight macadam highway to Falaise is deserted, ghostly in Its loneliness. When the Germans forced the French out, the French took all their livestock with them. You don't see a chicken or a cow or a pig anywhere with them unless its dead. You can drive through half a dozen villages on the way and even if they are not damaged by war you won't see a single civilian. Scene of Desolation. Lovely little stone houses stand empty, boxes of flowers blooming cheerfully on window sills, curtains billowing in the soft breeze. There's not a living soul around except an odd soldier. In Falaise itself there is a small twelfth century castle seemingly still intact. The Church of the Trinity is not badly damaged, but the Church of Saint Gervais is a smoking ruin. That's where the Germans had gas and oil stored, and also had a sniper in the steeple. Flamboyant in Death. Over near the village of Ussy you'll see a German graveyard and if you look closely you'll see there are about a hundred graves, and every grave is that of an SS. man. You've heard of course about the SS. men, the men who murdered nineteen Canadians, the men who today with drawn revolvers stand at the backs of other Germans to keep them in the front line. Over each grave is a huge wooden cross in the shape of an iron cross, black bordered and bearing the SS. insignia that looks like twin streaks of lightning. These wooden markers are five times as big as the white crosses that mark our graves and they are flamboyant. Even in death SS. men can't stop showing off. This is a strange war of by-passing as developed to a fine art by our Russian allies. We turned the jeep around from the outskirts of Falaise nnd headed bnck towards Cnen. Smoking; Out Sniper. Several miles back up the road, miles behind all the fighting, we whisked through the village of Bons Tassily. In astonishment we saw a whole section of Canadians sneaking up on a house twenty-five feet from "our jeep. Two ha,d tommy guns pointed at windows over a stone fence while others moved in on the house from all sides with bayonets fixed. They were smoking out a German sniper hidden in an upstairs room. War had passed him by three days ago, but there he was still fighting all by himself. Just another crazy Nazi. Crazy Nazis like that are the rea-son we can have Falaise and still Murphy-Gamble Buyer Sees New York Designs Mr. C. E.
