I'll fight anybody to improve something. "I'm In dutch moat of the time because I'm right, . When you're wrong nbout something In Hollywood the executives lauzh It off When you're right, there's h--- to Pay." There are people who Insist Shelley's "suggestions" have been good and that she should be commended for striving for perfection. Others claim «he frequently doesn't know what she's talking about, just likes to hear herself talk."

During the filming of this picture, jt ha* been recorded, Shelley made some suggestions to Producer Mlcahel Kanin on how the film should be cut and made some suggestions to the veteran cnmeraman on how she should be photograph. When ih« started making suggestions about her dialogue, Au— thor Garson Kanin memoed her: Oj "Shelley, dear.

During filming of "He Ran All The Way", opposite John Oarfleld, Shelley stormed off the set and returned with a battery of lawyers In her hot little hand, she explained later: "When I signed to do the picture there was a big scene at the end where I kill Garfield. I'm In love with him but I kill him. But when we get to the scene It's been changed, It's all Garfield's and I don't kill him. So we compromised Not killing him would have ruined the story. We went back to the ecene and I killed him. But *he scene was his. I can't blame him. It was his company." Her Sexiest Best "Frenchle" was a ui movie In which Shelley was suposed to look her sexiest best. One morning »he reported for work on the UI backlot for an outdoor scene and discovered, because the way a set was constructed, that, the bad side of her face—the left side—would be facing the camera. The resulting fireworks resembled a Las Vegu atomic test. The scene wa« re-written so the Want to Watch Volcano Erupt? Come to Naples In October, 1952; Vesuvius Is Du« AP as I wrote them?"

Mills Asks Increased Production of Manganese Ore WASHINGTON «>> — Rep. Mills '(D-Ark) yesterday called for a program to increase production and storing o/ domestic manganese ore.i. Lack of manganese In time of war. he told the House in an address, could be fatal. Manganese Is used In the manufacture of sleel. Mills said that Congress had called for ."stockpiling of manganese and other strategic materials In an act passed five years ago but that "the will of Congrej.5 has been frustrated by deliberate acts of suppression and abstraction on the part of the administrative agencies of the government." Mills Outline. Situation The. situation which Mills outlined in his talk was this: The UniU'd states now uses about tv:o million tons of 50 per cent manganese ore yearly, a demand barely met by Imports. These imports corne largely from India, Africa and Brazil. In event of war submarines likely would shut off these sources of supply. Year'i Supply Remalna Th» domestic supply U going to a stockpile but the country has only a year's supply In this stockpile. "In a war this would be « des- pernte situation -~ it could be fatal," Mills said. Mills recommended that: 1. Tha country continue Import- Ing all the manganese It can for current use; 3. The DMPA continue to contract with domestic producers of high grade manganese ore and continue to stock-pile; 3. Some program be put into effect for low grade ores. He proposed that the government purchase sufficient ore containing 15 per cent or more of metallic manganese bo stockpile 4 million tons of metallic manganese —or about a one year supply. Would Take Years It would take several years to accomplish this, Mills said. Mills said _tl statea c»n produce manganese, chief of whtah are Alabama. Arizona, Arkansas California. Colorado. Georgia. Idaho, 'Montana, Nevada, New Mexico. Tennessee, Utah, Virginia and Wa«h- ington. Pigeon Club Is Planned SINGAPORE Wi — The Animal Lovers League of Singapore ii planning to form a homing-pigeon club.

Director George Stevens has Intimated that Shelley gave him a couple of bad times while filming "A Place In the Sun."

A movie magazine recently headlined Shelley with: 'Only Her Temperamental Streak Can jinx Her Now." To which Shelley argues: T guts I'll always have arguments about making movies better and my scenes better. But I argue only when I feel it's necessary I never blow off steam for effect. 1 On that Hollywood agrees. (Tomorrow: "Miss Quotable Quote.") PAGE SEVEN By IACK BRDSIM NAPLES—Want to see a volcano erupt! Come to Naples in October, Prof. 5. B. Alfnno, director of the Volcimologic institute of Mount Vesuvius said his calculations show an eruption of famed Mt. Vesuvius will take »!nre next October "unless something very important has eono wrong in heaven or under the earth." The volcano eruptions follow regular cycles, Prof. Alfano said. His i-ccords show Vesuvius has followed a set pattern In erupting. Precise records hove been kept for about two thousand years, The first and mast important eruption was In 70 A.D. when Vesuvius buried the cities of Pompeii, Hercolanurn. Sta- bla, Sora and threw lava all the way to the sea. Its activity continued until 1037 i A.D, when, after a last explosive burst, Mt. Vesuvius stood quiet until Dec. 16. 1631. On that date ten rivers of lava swept away the Ve- j suvirm villages, nn enormous quantity of molten stone reached the; sea. Since then, the professor said, 1 Mt. Vesuvius has behaved better, Every so many years it erupts and' then quiets down for a short period. . According to the "Vesuviologiste," the volcano is due to resume Its activity in October 1952—102 monttw after the end of IU last eruption In 1944. This period is longer than' SALIBA Government Failt On Village, to Move It KUALA LUMPUR, Malal'a (AP) —The Federation government has admitted failure in its program of resettlement at the village of Bukit Chaiipgang In Solangor and has decided to eliminate the village A government statement said the place has been the haunt of a gang of Communist terrorists and the people of the village and resettlement camp had failed to cooperate with the government—In fact had continued relations with the terrorists.

Give it Air and Watch it GO <• ! ONE GALLON of good gasoline — JL 8350 gallons of ordinary air—mix well and feed in small doses to a Fireball Engine—and what do you get? Well, mister, we could give you • lot of sparkling adjectives. But the closest we can come to describing the result is to tell you-it's sometHing like the mighty thruct of an airliner — swooshing down the runway for a take-off. All of which is another way of saying that this newest and finest of Buicks can rev up the highest horsepower in its distinguished history. Now, you seldom need 170 horsepower, A lot of owners will never let it full out. But it's nice to know it is there for emergency. It's nice to know you can boss it around even if you use no more than an eighth of it at 40 miles an hour. BUT THAT is ONLY one side of the story. Buick engineers never do things hy halves. In the process of getting this whopping new charge of power, they also came up with more miles per gallon from gasoline. And the way they did it is one of the neatest bits of ingenuity we've stea in year*. Instead of building a whole new engine they focused on ways to feed a better mixture to the great Fireball Engine they already had. A mixture-that is-of fuel, •which costs money, and air, which is free. The result was the Airpower Carburetor — a four-barrel automatic—which worki on • booster principle. Two barrels supply all the fuel you need for most of the miles you drive—and they're sized and designed to supply the just-right thrifty mixture of fuel and air for anything from smooth-running idle up to some 40 or 50 miles an hour. But when you call for more power—for m quick spurt out of a tight spot—for an. unbroken gait up a steep hill-or for full- throttle operation - the reserves go into action. "Vm have two more barrels - to feed the just-right thrifty mixture for extra power —something like a "second wind." LIFK'S GREAT behind this great-powered eight, hut that's only part of the story.
