'Assignment: America' Eva Gahor's A Beauty But Froivns On Classification As 'Immigrant' (Reg. T!. 8. Pat. Off.) By INEZ EOBB Robin Population Hils Record In California PASADENA, Call.—W)—The robin population in Southern California is the largest; in years and nobody seems to kriow why. However, the Audubon Society has ventured & theory or two: The society believes heavy storms In nearby mountains have forced the red-breasted birds down to warmer climes. Also the recent use of plants with red berries to landscape Southern California homes has some bearing on the case— robins love red berries. OPEN TONIGHT Until 8 For Your Convenience NATIONAL STORES 16 Wineow St., opp. A. & P, NEW YORK—(INS)—I have been real fascinated by my inability during the past week to pick up a single magazine without staring into the face of Miss Eva Gabor, the erstwhile actress and Hungary's gift to the U.S.A. Miss Gabor, sometimes known as "Little Eva" in the Broadway column and cafe society sets, has joined the advertising aristocracy and is now shilling for an American brand of cigarettes at so much hard cash per endorsement. It is my earnest hope that the nation will take Miss Gabor's advice seriously. The sky-rocket rise of the Gabor girls (Eva, Zsa Zsa- and Magda) to front page fame in their brief years in, America makes any advice they let slip worth earnest consideration. Indeed, I am indebted myself to Eva Gabor for a brief but powerful lesson that I shall not soon forget. To her I owe the knowledge that "immigrant 1 ' is a dirty word. This undoubtedly will come as a shock to millions upon millions of American citizens and is apt to give aid and comfort only to the Osages, the Algonquins, the Nez Perces, the Apaches, the Navahoes and other native sons. • ' But, we Americans must be open- minded, about such matters and willing to iive and learn. Of recent date "I was called upon to write a brief skit for a charity pageant in which Miss Gabor was starred, as is her natural due. In the skit, Miss Gabor was described as "a poor but beautiful immigrant" who had, in the immemorial American manner, achieved considerable fame and fortune in one way or another during her meteor-like ascent since her arrival here from Hungary in 1939. This seemed a most innocent descriptive sentence to me. Indeed, I felt it was highly flattering. But not Miss Gabor! The only word in the phrase to which Miss Gabor did not offer vociferous objections was the adjective "beautiful." "In Hungary, I am reecher than ever I am here!" Miss Gabor said scornfully. "And I will not be called an immigrant," she cried indignantly. At that, the pageant committee took to the woods and left me to face "The Budapest Bombshell," as the Broadway columnists leve to call her (or "Goldirocks and the Three Gabors" if all the sisters are involved in the story). As to many continental women of Miss Gabor's class are fond of pointing out, we American dames are inclined to be dumb about lots of things. And in this instance, I guess I was real dumb, because I felt that Miss Gabor had simply misunderstood the word "immigrant" and that an explanation would quickly clear up the. matter. "No offense meant in calling you an immigrant, Miss Gabor," I assured her. "In America, it's very proud desination. All Americans are either immigrants or the descendants of immigrants. For instance my mother's mother was an immigrant, and long before that, all the rest of my American ancestors." At this, Miss Gabor recoilec regally, elevated her chin and, if possible, looked down her nose more laughtily. "I weel not be called an immigrant!" she said and it was a ukase So the offensive word "poor" and the nasty word "immigrant" were ;ut from the script and the whole skit tailored, more elegantly to fit Miss Gabor's refulgent personality Anyway, Miss Gabor and the fire- words simmered down, and the committee crawled out from behind the irees, ' In the meantime, lexicographers had better begin work on a term to replace "immigrant." And, of course for that true continental touch Americans can always switch to that brand of cigarette for which Miss Gabor is now rattling the cup Memorial Rite SlatedForKing A service in memory of King 1 George VI will be held Sunday atj p. m. in Emmanuel Episcopal' :hurch.
