nra i cno ' iron! IIILmLLLIIU. Um.i lELLIEI'S CAREER HiniSlUDI Luana Patten Named by Disney for 'Alice in ' 'Wonderland' Lead I, i in . By LOUELLA O. PARSONS Hollywood, Oct. 29. I knew that when my friend, Mark Hellin-fccr that demon newspaperman fcot going on his new Universal pntract, he would go first class. He has, by spending $75,000 of Universale money to bag "The Killers," a short story by Ernest Hemingway. The price is big potatoes for even a novel $25,000 more than "Gone With the Wind" brought; but as I said. Mark wanted his-first' to be something very special. 'The Killers" is really a classic Bnd has appeared in 30 anthologies pf best short stories. It will be the fourth Hemingway yarn to come to the screen, the others being "For Whom the Bell Tolls," "To Have and Have Not" and "Farewell to Arms." Well, Mark, here's hoping it will make a grand Picture. (When Walt Disney's "Alice in , ionderland" is ready you'll find it 1 going to delight children and jownups all over the world, (hy, I know dozens of adults who d "Alice" once a year regularly. Bit's prodigy, seven-year-old I ana Patten, he tells me, will be s: flesh and blood Alice. She's E girl who was in "Uncle Remits." The very literary Aldous Huxley is working on the screen play and, well, I wish it were possible to get it out by Christmas, but I guess there is too much to be done.7 - , : I am greatly interested to hear "Reunion in Vienna" had been revamped into a musical for Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy.

On my desk is a book titled "Star Bright, Star Light," by Joseph C. Spangler, with a foreword in which he says he has dedicated his book to Marion Davies, the "Christmas Lady" of his childhood. By that, you can see Joseph is very young. He lived on the East Side of New York and Marion used to bring Christmas cheer to him and lots of other poor children, in New York and Los Angeles, by giving them presents and by sending baskets of food to their homes. I am very happy to say a word for him and delighted with his appreciation of someone who deserves it as much as Marion Davies. v The MGM gang took "Adventure," the Clark Gable-Greer Gar-son-Joan Blondell movie to Pomona for a sneak preview and, according to at least a dozen people who saw it, it's, something to wait for. Clark, they tell me, has never been as good. and when Greer whacks a plate over his head it brings down the house. Snapshots of Hollywood, collected at random: The girl Sir Alex Korda saw the most of before he left town was Lisette Verea, Romanian actress; if Philip Reed doesn't hurry and get to New York, he's pretty apt to lose out. Barbara Hutton is seen all over New York with Capt. John Rogers, of whom Aunt Jessie Donahue heartily approves: reports from New York about Eddie Foy, Jr., in "The Red Mill" are tres flattering. Everyone says he's simply wonderful; Veronica Lake Js calling her baby Michael Anthony De Toth. Papa was busy passing out cigars at Schwab's drug store the night the baby was born and was he happy; Van Johnson long distances Sonja Henie, who Is in Chicago, almost every day. Dan Topping is back and vacationing at Bing Crosby's ranch; the Spike Jones, who have parted many times and then made up, on one of their makeup interludes had dinner at Ciro's. That's all today.

BOYS SPEND ilGHI Trapped 24 Hours by Tide in Delaware River; Get Lone Catfish Marooned on a mud island in the Delaware for 24 hours, three shivering young Philadelphia fishermen were found at noon yesterday after-an all-night search by frantic families and friends. The ill-fated fishing expedition began Saturday when Edwin Ash-ton, 15, of 2769 Kirkbride street; Robert Omrod, 14. of 4521 Edge-mont street and Edward Silcox, 13, of 6606 Torresdale avenue, tried the Pennsauken Creek without success. Then, near the Tacony-Palmyra Bridge, they saw the mud island, and, as the tide . was low, they merely rolled up their pants and waded to it. Late in the afternoon, when they were ready to call it quits, they were trapped. The tide had risen and the water was too deep to wade back to shore. No one heard their calls. They had nothing to eat. They huddled together all night a night that never seemed to end. When the tide was highest, they had to stand to keep from drowning. Meanwhile, police and worried relatives were conducting an all-night search for the missing boys. Cars combed the river bank and parts of South Jersey without success. Charles Trotter, of 4523 Edge-mont street, next door neighbor of the Omrod boy, was driving along the Jersey side of the Delaware at noon yesterday when he spotted the youths on the island. The tide was down again, and they waded ashore, piled into' Trotter's car and were home in their respective bath tubs in a half hour. And what did they catch for all this ordeal? One catfish. , MAPLE SHADE PARTY Maple Shade, Oct. 29. A masked Halloween party, sponsored by the PTA of schools 1 and 2, will be held in the Chestnut avenue school tonight.

B. Allen, Democratic candidate for the Assembly from uioucester county. Allen branded the plight of Gloucester county Republicans as "desperate," in their calling upon Republican National Committeeman Guy C Gabrfelson to bolster the spirits of the county GOP organization. Gabrielson spoke at a. meeting of the Gloucester County Republican Executive Committee last Wednesday. Among other things, he declared "the Republican party must constitute itself the defender and champion of organized labor." Looks. at Record "If that ! statement was made with honesty and sincerity it would certainly , deserve the highest commendation and it would also mark a change in Republican philosophy,' Allen said. "There is, however, nothing in the record of the Republican party as a whole, and Gloucester county's , Republican representatives in particular, that would indicate that they have, in the past, at least, considered themselves either labor's champions or-defenders, i . "Every piece of liberal labor legislation that has been introduced in Washington and Trenton has met with complete indifference or flat opposition from the Republican party. Commenting .on Gabrielson's statement that "So long as labor is permitted to organize, Socialism, Communism, Naziism and Fascism cannot come into control of the state," Allen again questioned the sincerity of the GOP's new-found philosophy. Recalls Revision Stand '; "Let me ! remind you," Allen declared, "that the Republican Legislature j .flatly refused only last year to include in the proposed revision of the State Constitution a clause that would give labor the constitutional right to organize and bargain collectively. That, incidentally, was one of the reasons the revision suffered such a smashing defeat. "I maintain that neither Gabrielson nor the party he represents are competent to speak for labor, nor have they shown themselves deserving of labor's support. Working men and women know that all the benefits they have received through legislation have been the work of the I)emocratic party, and they know in their hearts that the basic principles of the Republican party are inimical to their best interests." Ticket Mate Overseas Allen declared that his sentiments were those of Capt. William Kramer, his running mate for the Assembly, who is overseas ' on Army duty. "We are not afraid of Socialism, Communism or any other ism," Alien stated. "We and the party we represent have faith in the soundness of the American people that the Republicans do not seem to possess. We believe sincerely that there is more to be gained by looking ahead to a better i-America under a truly democratic government than can nossibly be gained by witch-hunting for 'foreign ideologies that exist largely in the minds of a few timid souls. "I believe that the Republican party has again made the mistake of underestimating " the intelligence of the people, and I am confident they will have paid for that oversight when the votes are counted on Nov. 6." Fossils of dragon flies have been found with wing spans as large as 29 inches. 2C msm3 'Thousand & One Hights" In Tochnicolor Gary Cooper - lorttta Young "AlOHG CAME JOKES" ill SI": IMS "Thcussnd & One Nights" In Ttchnicolor Paul Muni - Marguerite Chapman "COUIITER ATTACK" A, as.. .- r i ) if OHIHt f " . l fJBST4tCS , FUTt'KE FiSTSRC as wri ' JCftttl COURIER-POST, CAMDEN.

Why, there was the beautiful Barbara Hutton! Wearing a bustle! When she danced with a Navy looey, some people I know not very well, of course) purposely bumped 'up against her bustle. Then for Heaven's sakes, they went around crowing to friends, "We bumped Barbara Hutton's bustle!" . THIS WAS at the great Hilde-garde's supper club .opening, at the Hotel Plaza Persian Room, where everybody dressed formal. Miss H. sat far in the back. She's shy.. She wasn't . bothering anybody. Miss H. and Serge Obo-lensky were indeed entertaining some Naval officers here for Navy Week. I'd worked out a wonderful line about her beforehand. "Barbara was 'wearing her hair very rakishly she'd combed It with a rake," I was going to" say. Well, she looked so chic; slim, and unostentatious, that now I can't use it. I apologize for even thinking of it. AT IIILDEGAJKDE'S supper club opening, something, curious .happened: We got supper. So many supper clubs serve supper mostly in bottles. . But on this fine $6.50 supper ($1.50 cover charge) we even ate American flags. I'm a country boy; from Ohio and had never eaten an American flag before. The flags were skillfully made dressing, creamed cheese and ground Virginia ham, shaped exactly like flags, with coloring matter that gave them the red, white and blue, and stars and stripes. It was all for the Navy, which said they were the best American flags they'd ever tasted. ' i EVERYBODY DANCED even me.; I'd been tearing off a hell of a one-step, and hadn't crashed into hardly anybody, only the Countess de ZoppoJa, Lord Mansfield of Irving, Princess Lobko-vitz, the Duchess de Villarosa, the Duchess Jacqueline of 'Susanne, the S Countess Mercati, and Mrs. Orson Munn, when my Beautiful Wife said to me: "You with that one-step. I've got some news for you. They're playing a rumba." " MY MORALE SHATTERED, I retired from la danse. I thought it was wondrous that Hildegarde (from Milwaukee) and her mana ger, Anna Sosenko (from New Jersey), should drag out these Leading People.
