PAGE EIGHT BLl'J.JiKVJ.L,l,t; HAL BOYLE COLUMN— If You Would Succeed, Then Keep on Pitching Those Curves' —Monroe NEW YORK C3—Girls, our success formula for today is simple: "Stay In there and keep pitching thoso curves." The symbol of this vibrant mnxim is Marilyn Monroe, who has proved an ambitious girl doesn't have to come to the big city to get ahead. She can do it in her own home town. At nine Marilyn earned live cents a month spending money setting (abies In a Los Angeles orphans home. At 24, in the nearby film studio where she now has to wait on nobody, she draws down $750 n week. In Hollywood, where she Is rated ns one of the most sultry discoveries since the late Jean Harlov;, this naturally is considered peonage. j "They keep saying that one of these days they'll tenr up my contract and write me a better one," she said. "And one of these days I wish (hey would." "They keep me so busy." she complained, "sorry I'm so late," She turned her wide blue eyes on me, and I had an uneasy feeling they \vould melt ami drip on the table. Then she sat down beside me-real close-ami I had an uneasy feeling that maybe I'd melt. "I was having my hair fixed in my hotel room, nnd all 1 had on was a towel," she snid, and •dded carefully—"a Email towel. Some repunars were on Iho olh«r side of the door nsking mo questions. And such questions! They wanted to know if I knew how many stomachs a cow had, anil they seemed real surprised when I gave them the right answcr- ffur. "Then they asked me if I knew what heal was? I told them Bure- Heal is something that is generated. Isn't that rightfo Marilyn, who recently was In a film called "Monkey Business," rather enjoys people who take her for a real life dumb blonde. Sh« is dumb the same way Mae West Is. At the moment she Is rather amazed by Ihe public interest In her disclosure Hint she never wears brassieres, girdles or nny< other form of underclothing, and sleeps raw except for a nightly dab of pei'fume. "It's more comfortable not to wear underclothing, ami I don't like to feel, wrinkles," she Bald, "What's KO unusual about that? You must know n lot of girls who do the same thing-ami who put on perfume before going to Bleep." Editor's Note: If Boyle does, he never mentioned it before. Miss Monroe feels most American women should follow her example and emancipate thamselves from bras, corsets, and girdles. K E B P PITCHING — If you want to get ahead in tha world, "keep those curves pitch i n g," says Marilyn Monroe. "Sex? I never gave it a second thought,' she says. (NBA Photo) "But, first, some of them ought to exercise," she snid, "in order to be ... to be ... you know . . firm. I exercise with light weights myself. "I Ho on my back with my arms overhead nnd lift the weights 15 times. It Is a kind of pull against gravity. I guess. I used to wnlk a Jot. too. Walking up a steep hill is the best tiling for a woman's legs." But what about Ihe subject on the minds of 10 million girls this leap year—how to calch a husband?

The advisory warned lhal "this Is an emergency" and said tei-sely: "All Interests on the Georgia and South Carolina coasts should take immediate hurricane precautions." rlage at 18 didn't last, gave two simple rules: "1. A girl should follow her Instincts. "2. That will about take care of Ihlui's, 113 Instincts are important," As for sex a current events topic most movie stars and baseball players usually have opinions on, Miss Monroe said: "Truthfully, I've never given it a second Ihought." And she was gone before I thought of asking her what her first thought was. U.S. Korean Casualty List Climbs Higher By A. T. COLDBF.RG UNITED NATIONS, N. Y.

LOUIS Wl — William Merle Martin, one of the FBI's ten most wanted criminals, was caught without a struggle by police here early today soon after hunger had lorced him from rugged country where for two days he had eluded capture. The 42-year-old Martin, haggard and weak from hunger, was head- Ing Into Stl Louis In a car he had stolen from a deputy sheriff's garage in nearby Jefferson County. The police already had been tipped he had stolen the car. Wilh drawn pistols two policemen on motorcycles and two in a .squad car edged him to Ihe curb. It was shortly after m;c*Ri(?ht. "Well finally you got me. I'm unarmed, Don't shoot," Marlin said weakly. Martin's arrest came a few hours after another man on the FBI's most wanted list was cap- lured at Texas Cily, Tex. Taken into custody there was Joseph Franklin Bent, Jr., 28. Martin was gashed and bruised -Tom ills wild flight through woods and over rocky countryside where he had been hiding. His trousers were ripped off below his knees. He was coatless and he had only $20 in his pockets. He told police he hadn't eaten since Wednesday noon. He had eluded bloodhounds, FBI agents, state highway patrolmen, police, railroad detectives and armed farmers since the hunt lor him began. He had hidden by day and crawled and stumbled over the rugged country in the dark to the little town of Cedar Hill 17 miles from where state highway patrolmen forced him to ditch a stolen car around midnight Wednesday and take to a cornfield, 33 miles west of here. At Cedar Hill he waited In the woods until darkness. Then he quietly slipped into Deputy Sheriff Thomas Powell's garage last night. The keys were in the ignition of Powell's car. From his bedroom window Pow- eil saw Martin backing his car out and telephoned tlie state highway patrol. The alarm was sounded, When Marlin drove slowly into §t. Louis Ihe police were ready. Martin, handcuffed and heavily guarded, was treated at a hospita.1 for cuts before he was taken to police headquarters. Under ques- turning, the red-haired Marlin said he had been in such "a damn big hurry" that he actually didn't know where lie had been during the hunt. Martin said he arrived hera Wednesday night in a car he had stolen in Birmingham Ala., and ditched when the highway patrol gave chase. "When I jumped out of (he car nnd ran into the cornfield, that was as close as they ever came to me until now," Martin said after his capture. • A farmer reported fMntf Wednesday night at a man they believed to be the criminal. "I never saw any search party and not one shot was fired at me. If that guy shot at anybody it must have been one of the farmers around there." He told how he could hear the bloodhounds baying as he lay in the darkness but "You can always walk around them." He said the worst part of his grim hide-and-seek with Ihe officers was not being able to smoke. Martin said he was unarmed when he made his flight into the woods because he had lost his revolver two weeks ago In Tennessee. He explained he had dyed his hair black but that he hadn't done a very good Job. It was streaked when he was caught.
