t tndutkf, O., Men., Jan., 10. ItSS I u MEN \Wm \ ON GAMBLE FOR LOST LIMA LOOT Ohtoftn fs Skipper Of Covcrtcd Sub-Chaser Hcadrd For Cocos Island In Quest of Legendary Treasure. LOS ANGELES, Jan. 10 (UP) —Fourteen men set forth on a converted subchaser Saturday for Cocos Island off the Costa Mean coast where they hope a S35,00O Ramble will return them SRO-dollars In yold and Jewels, the legendary lost loot of Lima. The treasure seekers—engineers, sailors, businessmen—have pooled 535,000 in money and equipment. They hope to locate the treasure with a 130-year-old map which expedition leader Charles Williams of Manhattan Beach. Cal., says was willed to him by • sea captain. Their ship is the M-I'ool sub- ehnser Isle of Capri, owned and ."kippered by Thomas Clairmont, 30, of Ravenna, O. WILLIAMS SAID the treasure was left on the deserted island in 1821 by Mutinous ere win cm- "bers of a ship taking the glittering hoard to Spain. The treasure— jewels, gold bars, pieces of eight and church ornaments-Mvas ordered sent to Spain to keep it from invaders, Williams said. The isle of Capri carries a wealth of modern equipment to ski the treasure hunt, including two bulldozers, a power dragline, core drill, hydraulic pumps and four electronic metal-locating devices. THE EQUIPMENT was ordered by Williams who has made two exploratory trips to Cocos Island. The Isle of Capri will pick up 10 Costa Rican soldiers as "zguards when she ncars her dcslina- ?ition, Williams said . IS Williams said he planned to stop j £at Puentarenas, Costa Rica, to excavate some Indian graves and ,"»tben continue to Cocos Island. He ^estimated the treasure hunt would 3 take three to four months. It Happened Last Night Bf SAUL WILSON THE BEST LAUGHS OF 1954 NEW YORK—President Kiscn- iiower lost one contest, in l l )f>4 to Liberace, Rubirosa, Marilyn Monroe and Bobo Rockefeller. As I try to list "The Best Laughs of 1954," It's clear the gag-writers considered those people better laugh targets than the President • though Harry Truman was always one of their favorites). Maybe It's a matter of dignity. Anyway—Liberace's success secret Steel Indusiry Keeps High Tempo ; CLEVELAND, Jan. 10 1UP1 — 'iSteel Magazine said today that the —steel industry is •'optimistic'' con- S corning its future and has in- xereased its production capacity as Swell as a continued program of implant modernization.

FRED ALLEN was "Visit your piano teacher once ?. year and your dentist once a ciay," according to one '54 funny. "Winthrop Rockefeller is going to marry BobO— again for HIS money," was another. Hollywood writer Seaman Jacobs said Rubi­ rosa knew Zsa Zsa so well he called her Zsa. "Every place is air-conditioned now but Kcll." somebody wrote in midsummer. Bob Hope remarked, "Bin!,' Crosby doesn't know whether to fro on television, or buy it" Dennis Day said: "Jack Benny's found a new use for old razor blades, lie shaves with them." "My aunt went to a drive-in liiovie and became the first woman ever run over on the way to the bathroom," Herb Shrincr said. Dior, the Cleveland Indians and Las Vegas were laugh chaff. Asked what hotel Ije'd gone to m Las Vegas, a gambler supposedly replied: "Who needed a room? 1 was only there three nights." Comedian Joe K. Lewis, al'lev so­ il.g on the wagon for 10 days, (,-oni- mcnted, "The audience look- different to me now. Now I can sec em." He added. "I'm just galling over a slight case of whisky " Ed Wynn gave a recipe fur successful farming: "Rise early, work late, strike oil." Tallulah Rnnk- nead, hearing of Marlcne Dietrich's $6,000 dress, cracked: "Any- locly who pays more than So,000 for a dress is nuts." About the most widely printed gag was about a man. trying to locate a friend named John Sexauer, asking a switchboard operator: "Do you have a Sexauer there?" And she snorted: "Sexauer; We don't even iia-c a cot Ice break here!" Art Buchwald told of two Paris photographers talking One said he'd seen a poverty-stricken old woman on a park bench almo.-.l starving. "W'hat'd \ou give her?'' asked the other. "It was kinda sunin." was the reply, "so I gave her 100 at t.ll." New York cheesecake photographers adopted the slogan: ' "Don't shoot till you see the whites of their thl»hs." A Pln- Up Girl was defined as a girl who doesn't pin up anything. Bob Consldine claimed a society lady burst out of Toots Shor's exclaiming: "If Mr. Shor wants to get anywhere, he'll have to get of his fat, loudmouthed hcau- waiter."—TooUs himself. The joke about the Bishop who had files marked "Sacred" and 'Top Sacred" went the night, club rounds and wound up in a snuti. magazine. Another, that fitted in with the McCarthy investigations, concerned a sailor who was asked; whether he had any pornographic literature. He yelled back: "1 don't even have a pornograph!" A newl.v-riclv woman sat in a long limousine, her baby daughter, wearing mink, beside her: "Can she walk?" asked an adoring neighbor, peering in. As Henny Youngman told it, Mama said, "Thank God, she doesn't have to!" Blanche Theboni happened to sing in Louisville the night of the Community Chest fund-raising din- rer. Kvcrybotlj was staring at her very low-cut gown. At intermission, the fund chairman \old an Episcopalian minister: "Well, (lie Chest, went over the top!" "I've been expecting it ali evening," replied the, minister. A psychiatrist, Georgie Kaye .'-aid, "is a man you see when iou're going crazy and he helps you." A stooge asked Mae West, "You know what happens to bad little girls, don't you?"—and she replied, "Yeh—prosperity." George GoblV "I'll be a dirty bird" was TV's big expression. "The biggest things coming from Texas," Robert Clary said "are stories." Jack E, Leonard praised i'n Atlantic City cafe operator for getting him a hotel room lacing Housing Session Nay Gel Definite Slum Proposals By WILLIAM HE RUIN WASHINGTON (INS)—Keep your eye on Chicago this month for some definite proposals from the home building Industry designed to pep-up the government's newly launched battle to combat slums. Industry leaders are determined to make the anti-slum fight succeed and for the first time the men who build America's homes will get their chance to speak out on the program enacted by Congress last summer. More than 20.000 members of the National Association of Home Builders are expected tin the Windy City Jan. 16 for a five-day, top-to- bottom review of the entire housing picture. New Techniques It will be the biggest NAHB convention ever, and the spotlight- outwardly, at least—will be on the latest techniques in planning, building and selling the houses you buy in 1955. Behind the scenes, top NAHB officials are planning a complete run-down on the government's urban renewal program—the opera- lion Congress approved to clean up slums and prevent their spread. NAHB President Richard G. Hughes of Pampa. Tex. has already- appointed a resolutions committee to begin work on recommendations to be included in a national policy statement to be submitted to the convention. And top government officials- including housing administrator Albert M. Cole and Federal Housing Administration chief Norman P. Mason, will be on hand to bring the builders up to date on latest Washington developments. Urban Renewal "We want to get Ihe ball rolling on urban renewal" says one industry official. "The housing agencies aren't moving fast enough, but that's because this is a new and complicated field. "You can't be too impatient about it. But we want to see if we was the Pacific the ocean. "Of course, it Ocean." he said. Joey Ada in * mentioned a fellow's asking a lovelorn adviser if it was O. K. to marry an octopus. Told it wasn't, the gent said, "And me stuck with eight engagement rings!" It was Peter Donald who suggested that James Roosevelt be given an honorary degree—Doctor of Letters. Georgie Jessel was the Friars' Club guest of honor at its annual testimonial. There. Fred Allen twitted Jack Benny this way. "There is a saying 'You can't take it with you.' but if you see a ."uneral procession -with a urmorcd car behind ttfe you'll know Mr. Benny is having a try at it." can make some sound recommendations to expedite things. We'd like to get some jobs started so we can show them to Congress. 1 ' The interest of builders of new homes in cleaning out slums and repairing and modernizing rundown property is unprecedented but it represents a recognition that urban renewal will provide tremendous social and economic gains to the country. May Provide Answer Industry leaders feel that the anti-slum program may provide the answer to the problem of improving the country's housing inventory and simultaneously help maintain a high building volume over the next few years by stimulating the need for more new housing. Some officials believe the operation may knock out any chance of a let-down in housing output be- Rrink's•'tween now and the 1960's when hearse, 'demand for homes is expected to skyrocket as the postwar baby crop reaches the marriageable age. WHAT »S NEW? — Looking much the same. Marilyn Monroe wears a white satin gown and a "subdued platinum" hairdo as she announces at a press conference in New York City that she has organized her own company, Marilyn Monroe Productions, Inc. She says she'd like to produce "good musicals" and play ".serious parts." tNEA Telepholoi.

The ex-dancer, Barbara Lee Collins, 27. was arretted Saturday in a trailer near Baldwin Park where she was living with the child, Dexel Raymond Brock of Live Oak, Fla.. and two other unidentified persons who were not held. Officers quoted Mrs. Collins as saying she took the child "because I could give him better care." Meanwhile, the child's mother, Mrs. Selden Gill, said she wasn't "exactly mad" at Mrs. Collins, but was naturally anxious for the child's safe return. Mrs. Gill Is just out of a hospital after giving birth to her third child. Officers took the child to juvenile hall and said he was in good condition. They prepared to return him to his mother. IT IS THE SECOND time In 19 months that Mrs. Collins has faced an abduction charge. In May, 1953, she was accused in New York of kidnaping two Washington, D. C, children, a charge later reduced to endangering the life of a child. The children belonged to Clifton Bradford. The FBI said Mrs. Collins admitted taking Dexel last November because she thought she could take better care of him. Thtttor Schedule! OHIO—"A Star Is Born" — 1:05, 3:50. 6:30, 9:20.
