By CHARLES GRUTZNER Jr. If you see a girl in slacks tnd sweater, sitting alone in the least noisy corner of the amusement area, who looks enough like Greta Garbo to be her double, it is her double. Her name is Pattie Shaw and she doubled for Garbo in "Conquest." When you saw Greta Garbo sweep through a graceful dance in the Napoleonic ballroom scene and when you saw Jer riding like mad, it was really Pattie making Vnur Vioort clrln a Haf - Without her slacks and without her sweater MiM Shaw U one of the lovelier show girls in N.T.O.'i Congress of Beauties at the Fair. She was borr in Kansas City, but has been in Hol-- Ivwood since she was 11 and got her first Job, by lying about her age, as an assistant to Irene Hob-son, the beauty expert. . A lady from Pittsburgh asked an attendant in Gardens on Pa- rade where they got all the song-j; birds and .how 1 they kept themw. from flying away.

A genileman stood, glass In hand, at the- preview party In the State of Florida exhibit the other afternoon. A voice at his elbow said, "Welcome to Florida." He turned around and there was a huge red and blue parrot. From the other side he heard a bird call, and wheeled to find the grinning black face of "Whistling Willie." the attendant who can imitate all the Florida birds. "Whoosh I" exclaimed the startled gentleman. "Mast be strong stuff In these calomondin cocktails." There Is aim a white cockatoo in the Florida exhibit which Is said to be auite a singer. Nina Dean, the raven-haired epitome of Southern hospitality, wanted to show him off to the guests. "Come, Chalky," she coaxed. "Sing 'A Tteket, a TaskeC" But she didn't know that another ruest had been letting Chalky sip We suppose people will continue to die, even in the world of tomor Chalky wobbled on his perch and let out the most gosh -awful aeries of squawks.

Boro Veterans Plan to Give Fair a Flagpole Seek Funds to Errct Permanent Slaff To Top Soviet Star While an American flag was : brought out josterday on a staff atop the parachute jump at the World's Fair, to fly one foot higher than the red star which surmounts the U. S. S. R. pavilion, a movement was started by Brooklyn war veterans for a permanent steel flagpole at the Fair from which to fly the flag of this country 100 feet higher than the Soviet Building. Col. William A. Dawkins. chairman of the Kings County Allied Wsr Veterans Association, announced that the association was seeking popular subscriptions to purchase and present to Orover A. Whalen, president of the Fair corporation, such a flagpole to be set up on Constitution Mall or the Ave nue of Patriots. "We sre about to launch a drive to arouse public sentiment in protest against the Emblem of Labor holding the Red Star of Soviet Russia on the Soviet Russian Building at the Fair," said Col. Dawkins. "We hope to raise sufficient funds to purchase a suitable steel flagpole to be In height far above any foreign flag or emblem at the Fair and to fly In the breeze from the top of his fla; pole the Star-Spangled Banner of the good old V. 8. A., and dedicated to the honored soldier, sailor and marine dead of all our wars." Col. Dawkins said that the association was composed of the G. A.

During the afternoon the Fair Administration sent over a squad of police to curve the ends of the waiting lines away from the entrances of the neighboring exhibit. ' had at the voting machine showed 5.318 votes for the cops' "Murder at Midnight" thriller and 3,99 for the firefighters' ladder clirrroing ana pole sliding demonstration. Some of the firemen feel the cops are pulling a fast one by having a "barker" out front. The Police Glee Club and band of 10 plecea play on the steps of the building every afternoon and evening. After each performance the aongleader Invites the audience inside to see "Murder at Midnight." What to really holding back the firemen's show In the poll Is the fact that many people are disappointed at finding no flames in the "rescue from a burning building" act. A bit of flreproofing, a dash of kerosene and a match should make those votes roll right up.
