SATURDAY, MAY 26, 1945. IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, IRONWOOD. MICH. FIVE Need for Paper for War Is Greater Than Ever, Public Reminded. Ironwood's next collection of waste paper for war will take place Monday, under the sponsorship of the Ladies Aid of the First Baptist church.

Mrs. John Landers is chairman of the committee in charge of the campaign which has been conducted during the last Jour weeks to urge residents of the city to salvage paper as a contribution to victory. Residents of the city are asked to paper, tied in bundles or pacxed in cardboard boxes, at the street curbs from where it will be picked up by city trucks. With spring housecleaning still in progress in many homes, it is expected that a large quantity of paper will become available for salvage. Officials in charge of various phases of the nation's war effort emphasize that the need for paper is more acute than ever and instead of being diminished by the victory in Europe, actually is intensified.

By ERSKINE JOHNSON NBA Staff Hollwood--Maureen O'Hara let her hair down today like no other film star has ever done before. Describing herself as the helpless victim of a Hollywood whispering campaign, the red-haired Irish colleen lashed out at derriere-patting Hollywoodsmen, producers who call her a "cold potato" and technicolor spectacles which have typed her as a clothes horse.

"I'm so fed up with it," she said, eyes blazing, "that I'm ready to quit. It's gotten so bad that I hate to come to work in the morning." Explained Maureen: "Because I don't let the producer and the director kiss me every morning or let them paw me, they've spread word around town that I'm not a woman--that I'm a cold piece of marble statuary People who don't even know me have heard these stories, look up when the name tMaureen O'Hara is mentioned and say, 'Yes, a very good actress--but a cold Won't Conform She has lost numerous good roles, Maureen said, because she refuses to conform to Hollywood's idea of how a glamour girl should act away from the camera. "I guess," she said, "Hollywood won't consider me as anything except a cold hunk of marble until I divorce my husband, give my baby away and get my name and photograph in all the newspapers. If that's Hollywood's idea of being a woman, I'm ready to quit now." In 1939, at 18, she was imported to Hollywood from Dublin and the Abbey School of Acting. Hollywood Mrs.

"But she has no sex appeal." So Maureen hired a press agent and started a glamour campaign. She posed in bathing suits, low cut evening clothes and "knocked myself out going to night clubs." After, a while, the producers said. "Hmmm We were wrong. The gal is glamorous." "Hollywood," she said, "is a funny place.

Producers see a pretty girl on the screen and they immediately say: 'Hm, she didn't get there because she could act. All she's got is face and a 'The same producers see a homely girl on the screen and say: 'Hm--she didn't get there on her face or her figure.

Shannon, Kansas City, and Paul J. Raincy, Scran ton, picked up a Japanese prisoner in their jeep at a regimental command post and started for the Twenty-fifth division stockade.

Suddenly the prisoner tapped Driver Shannon on the shoulder. He pointed to the speedometer which read 30 miles an hour and to a speed on the road which said 20. "Looks," said Rainey, "like we captured an MP." Cladie Bailey, Bedford, battalion commander lately in the 33rd division, fought, at Buna an aidor and Aitape. He also fought at Morotai and Leyte and at Lingayen. He won the DSC at Buna where he was wounded.

He wflfts wounded again at Aitape. On the Villa Verde trail in worth Luzon a Japanese grenade killed him. Maureen's Champion She has one ace in the hole, however. Director John Ford--Hollywood's best director--considers her Hollywood's best actress. Ford is in the navy now but when he returns to the cameras as a civilian (he's directing "They Were on leave from the navy) he has promised Maureen a starring role in one of his pictures.

There arc also her fans. "Almost she said, every letter "asks why I receive," doesn't take me out of those silly technicolor pictures and give me dramatic roles. "It's nice," she added, "to hafe someone on your side."

i ON THE RANGE IT'S, "Susie," a 13th airforce Liberator, completed her 100th mission recently. The members of her crew think that Susie's record ought to make good reading for European bomber crews who are headed for the Pacific. Susie averaged 1,870 miles per mission, all over water. She averaged 11 hours to the mission. Her longest mission was 2,500 miles and 17 hours.

Once with 22 other Liberators she shot her way through 75 Japanese fighters at Truk and although badly damaged wobbled 1,000 miles home. She was over Truk again two days later. Over Yap, 1,100 watery miles from base, a Japanese Zero exploded 25 feet below, blasting a big hole in her belly. She came home with a nip propeller embedded in her waist. Says her proud crew chief, Staff Sgt.

William E. Watson, Alton, "Her goal is 150 missions. She's carried 350 tons of bombs over 30 different targets and has been hit with everything but Hirohito's bathtub. Yet not one crewman has been scratched." Explosion of a Japanese land mine saved the lives of nine men on Mindanao. The explosion blew thef flat just as a Nip machinegun opened up.

(NEA Telephoto.) 5 By David Lawrence Washington--Four changes in the cabinet since President Truman took office a month ago indicate that other appointments may also be expected. The reasons given in the three letters of resignation announced Thursday--namely, that a new president should have an opportunity to chose new associates and that a decade is a long period of service for a cabinet officer would seem to apply to others still in the cabinet.

With new faces, however, in the post office department, agricultural department, department of justice and department of labor, Mr. Truman may be said to have reorganized a substantial segment of the government. There can be little doubt that by 1948 the Democratic administration will wish to overcome as much of the opposition to the domestic policies of the Roosevelt administration as possible, while at the same time obtaining whatever prestige it can from a fulfillment of the foreign policies. The new cabinet appointees represent neither a turn toward the left ncv to the right. Judge Schwellenbach, who becomes secretary of 'abor, had a record in congress of friendliness to labor legislation.

One Republican senator of prominence he other day, discussing with the writer the probable appointment of Mr. Schwellenbach, said of him: 'Well, he is pretty well over to the left and labor will like the appointment but if we have to do business with a left-winger, I'd rather have my case come before Schwellenbach than anyone I know of in that chool of thought." As for the new attorney general, Tom Clark, this is not considered in any sense a political selection. He young and able, has a fine personality, ts independent minded and mown, as a "square-shooter." He regarded by persons in the government as a good administrator, and tlie appointment is liked because it is recognition of meritor- ous service by a man in a subordinate capacity. Incidentally, he knows his way around in politics and has been on terms of personal "riendship with both Chairman Harmegan of the Democratic na- ional committee, now postmaster general, and with President Truman. Representative Clinton Anderson, vho becomes secretary of agricul- ure, is a business man of independent means and a man who has been earless in his approach in congress agricultural problems.

He has no tie-ups with farm organizations and is believed to be the kind of nian who is not likely to be con- rolled by pressure-group tactics. On the whole, the three appoint- nents just announced indicate that President Truman is trying to get an efficient, cabinet composed of men whose personal equation he uiows. Certainly it cannot be said of the in Ontonagon in the past in the court house on Thursday afternoons twice a month. three appointees that they are zealots or crusaders in the cause of! new dealism, but it can be said' that they are liberals in the sense; in which the Democratic adminis- traticn will probably wish to be 1 known in coming years. The principal need in the government nowadays, however, is to avoid giving extremists of either the right or the left the reins of control over national policies, whether in an advisory or an administrative sense.

The great need of the hour is stability and fairmindedness. A liberal policy executed by men whose motives are unscrupulous is worse than a reactionary policy fairly administered. Conversely, liberalism makes its greatest strides in national affairs when it has honest administrators who have a deep sense of what is just and right. Tco much of the new deal philosophy has been impaired by the clumsy or inept administrators who thought that they must ride roughshod over opposition and use the power of government to coerce rather than persuade opponents to accept their views on legislative policy or governmental regulation. The whole cause of good-government can be undermined By men who wish to exploit themselves rather than serve the people.

President Truman appears to be too good a judge of human nature and particularly of the currents of irritation, if not bitterness in our public affairs, to overlook the need of selecting capable and Jairminded administrators to execute liberal policies, As for the appointments of Harry Hopkins and Joseph E. Davies to act as diplomatic advisers, each of these men has a certain background in international affairs which can prove helpful to the president, and he is wise in availing himself of their knowledge for special missions thus preserving wherever possible a certain continuity in foreign affairs that is especially important in these critical times.
