TONIGHT PREMIERE PROGRAM "TO ARMS FOR PEACE!" WABC-9.30 P.M. i HON. WILLIAM E. BORAH United States Senator from Idaho Guest Speaker will deliver an Address on "Peace" LUCREZIA BORI Soprano, of the Metropolitan Opera Company Guest Artist Howard Barlow's Symphony Orchestra and Full Chorus Dramatic Scenes from R. C Sheriff's Great War Play "JOURNEY'S END" Few Names Are 'Box-Office1 That's Why Leslie Stainer Became Leslie Howard and Jack Krantz Was Changed to Ricardo Cortez If you want to be an actor and play in the movies, the chances are you will have to change your name. Not one name In a hundred is considered "box office" in Hollywood. Four young people have found this out recently all of them newcomers to the screen colony and all of them ready to carve out careers in pictures. Joseph Sauers, for example, will be known from now on as Joseph Sawyer. He has worked in pictures for many months, but received screen billing only recently. After his excellent showing in" "The Informer," Warner Brothers signed him to a term contract, and the name change was suggested by Sauers himself. 'I didn't mind when people called me 'Sowers'," he explains, "or even Sours', but when I was introduced as 'Joe Sewers' I knew it was time to change the name." After a long series of tests, Nick Foran, redhead football hero who turned actor, was chosen to play the leading roles in a series of "West erns." It was argued and agreed that "Nick" was not a typical- sounding name for a cowboy but that "Dick" was. So it is to be "Dick" Fovfin in "Moonlight on the Prairie," and in all future pictures in which this player appears. Sybil Jason, diminutive child actress, whose talents will be dis played first to American audiences in "The Little Big Shot," coming to the Roxy soon, has played in .South Africa and England under her own name of Sybil Jacobs. The change was agreed upon before she started her first picture in Hollywood. Reason given: A more euphonious name. Last of the four to have a name change is Hugh Enfield, who has been appearing with Mary Pickford on the stage in "Coquette." He will be introduced to screen audiences as Craig Reynolds.

The new name seems to fit and he is much pleased with It. No one in Hollywood seems to be able to say Just why any certain name isn't "box office," or why another name is. Length has nothing to do with it. Josephine Hutchinson brought one of the longest names on record to Hollywood and no suggestion that it should be changed was ever made. Richard Barthelmess had a long name and made it synonymous with success. Olivia de Havilland is a young actress of whom great things are expected yet her rather complicated namL has been left in its original state. On the other hand, no famous screen name Is shorter than that of Paul Muni, shortened, as almost everybody knows, from Muni Wel-senfreund. Edward O. Robinson, with a long name, plays similar roles. Bette Davis' name is short and as pert as her pretty face. Jean Muir (shortened from Jean Muir Fullarton) makes eight letters do. Margaret Lindsay uses fifteen. Eight letters have always been enough for Al Jolson. Warren Williamwho used to be Warren William Krech on the stage has thirteen and doesn't consider it unlucky. A name either fits a screen personality or it doesn't. And when it doesn't something has to be done about it. Ruby Keeler uses her own name. So do James Cagney and Dick Powell and Joe E. Brown. But George Brent and Leslie Howard and Ricardo Cortez have had theirs changed to make them better "box office." (Brent was Nolan, Howard was Stainer and Cortez was Kranz.) This is a free country and any one who wishes can try for a place in the movies. But any one who gets there must be willing to change his name, if Hollywood decides it needs changing. Labor and WPA Face Deadlock On. Relief Wage Labor leaders and the Works Progress Administration rapidly approached an Impasse today as the unions definitely indicated their intention of rejecting any wage plan affecting PWA jobs that did not call for payment of the full prevailing rate. The unions made no secret of the fact that they intend to turn thumbs down on any compromise such as the one proposed by Gen. Hugo S. Johnson, Administrator for the city, providing for a cut in work hours from 120 to 80 a month for skilled labor with the pay set at $1.17 an hour. The prevailing rate for skilled workmen is about $1.50 an hour. The expectation was that the Federal authorities in Washington would announce in a few days that a compromise similar to the Johnson plan would be acceptable here. In an effort to save the situation Mayor LaGuardia is understood to have threshed the matter out yesterday with the Joint committee of the unions wrestling with the pay question. Added to Cast Darryl P. Zanuck, production head of 20th Century-Pox, announces that Frank Dawson has been added to the cast of "Buccaneer," and Bessie Lyle and Hannah Washington have been assigned to roles in 'The Little Rebel," new Shirley Temple starring vehicle. 4 30 WABC U.

As an extra added attraction, the Metropolitan will revive its policy of stage productions for one week so that Brooklynites may witness one of the greatest variety bills of the season.
