10 The OTTAWA HERALD •> Friday, May 1, 1959 Displays Of Harmony May Be For Audience ^* ' / By jyVMES MARLOW Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP)—There has been an unsurprising burst of har mony on bath sides of the Iron Curtain. Western diplomats in Paris Thursday, preparing to meet the Soviets May U in Geneva, pro claimed full agreement among themselves on what they will talk about. Earlier this week the Soviets and their European satellites met in Warsaw and proclaimed full agreement on their side. The trouble with both displays of harmony: 1. The thoroughly cowed Sovie satellites could hardly do anything else but agree with whatever the Soviets want to say or demand a' Geneva. So this harmony was win dow-dressing. 2. The Western diplomats — the foreign ministers of the Unitec States, Britain, France and Wes Germany — could hardly affon not to show at least an outward sign of unity before the meeting with Gromyko. Since the Westerners have been split for months on how to handle the Soviets, this sudden manifes tation of sweet reasonableness and agreements may have a large element of window-dressing in i too. The whole thing started last Nov. 27 when Premier Nikita Khrushchev gave the Allies six months — that would make the deadline May 27 — to get their troops out of Berlin. He also wanted peace treaties signed with East and West Germany. But West Germany is linked with the Allies; the Allies would like to see all Germany linked with them; and therefore they have called for a united Ger many. Since in any free elections the West Germans doubly outnumber the East Germans, the result would be a united Germany that was pro-West. Khrushchev has said he would never let Communist East Germany get away. All this adds up to a handsome set of difficulties in any negotia tions between the West and the Soviet Union. Western diplomats at Paris announced they had agreed on a package plan including these points: Allied determination to stay put In Berlin until reunification between East and West Germany is achieved and a plan for controls inspection and limitation of arm RIDE WHILE YOU WORK 7hp RIDE-A-MATIC TRACTOR (shewn with 36" mower) • Over 20 work-saving attachments • Automotive Steering anc.

What isn't knovi is what the Allies will settle for — if anything — if the Soviets reject the pack age plan and insist that the Allies get out of Berlin. So far the Allies have been on the defensive, put thereby Khrushchev's November demands And so far they haven't been able to think up anything to put him on the defensive. Up to now, there fore, the advantage has been al his. Since the Geneva meeting later this month is supposed to be a preliminary and stage-setter for a summit meeting later, quite pos sibly both sides, while agreeing on nothing, will be on their good be havior. A summit meeting would seem impossible if the foreign ministers at Geneva began the usual East West program of mutual recriminations and denunciations. Federal Charges Against Two Men HALE, Mo. (AP) _ A federal bank robbery charge will be filed against two men who were arrested yesterday shortly after the Farmers and Merchants . Bank' of Hale was robbed of $22,813. The FBI said the complaint, to be filed in Kansas City, would name Jack Thomas Keeton, 28, Independence, Mo., and George Junior Davis, 35, Kansas City. Officers said the loot was recov ered. Sheriff Alex Goodson Jr. said Keeton had $3,500 when the two were arrested by Trooper C. L. Meyer of the Missouri Highway Patrol about 10 miles south of Chiliicothe.

(AP) - Police picked up blood-spattered clothing in the home of a 3-year-old girl whose bruised and lifeless body was found two miles away Thursday. The battered body of Sharon Grossman was found beneath the porch of a house after a two-day search. The exact cause of death was not immediately known. The bloodstains on the clothing were being analyzed to determine the type. The parents of the dead girl, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Grossman, told police they had used pieces of cloth to stop the nose bleeds ol their children. The parents were not held. A medical examiner said there was no evidence that the child had been assaulted sexually. But there was evidence, he said, that she had been beaten severely. Sharon recently had undergone a pancreas operation and was reported still in a weakened condi- ion. Her mother Eleanor, 27, had told police the child disappeared 'rom her crib sometime e.-jrly Tuesday. She said she had put tharon in her second-floor bedroom for a nap and then had gone o rest.

(AP Photo) , Mamie Conducts Tour Of "Home" By FRANCES LEWINE WASHINGTON (AP) — "This is such a livable house," Mrs. Mamie Eisenhower told some former tenants of the White House. The First Lady led an unusual tour Thursday for sons and daughters of former presidents here for a "Life With Father" luncheon. She took them from the top to the bottom of the executive mansion. The tour included her own bedroom, blooming with bouquets of pink 'rosebuds, and the First Family's private dining room. The eight children of presidents and a number of relatives and descendants of chief executives looked over with a critical eye what once had been home for some of them. Many had not been back. Much brighter and airier, since ;he renovation during President Truman's term, they decided. Harry S. Truman's famous second-floor balcony got mixed comment. Rep. James Roosevelt (D-Calif), a son of FDR, thought it was a good place from which to take photographs. Architecturally "it just ruined" the White House, opined outspoken Mrs. Alice Roosevelt Longworth, daughter of President Theodore Roosevelt. President Eisenhower took time out from his official duties to greet the guests. He directed Mrs. Marion Cleveland Amen of New York City to a 'portrait of her mother, Mrs. Grover Cleveland, in the Gold Room. Mrs. Amen said she thought it was a poor copy of the original. The Women's National Press Would Take Tip From Pentagon By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP)-Veteran actress Thelma Bitter says she thinks Hollywood could take a tip from the Pentagon. The word "star" has been kicked around so much it has lost its meaning, she said. "Some very fine actors aren't stars, anc some very big film stars aren't actors. y "There should be one-star stars two-star stars and three-star stars —just as the military has one-star generals, two-star generals anc three-star generals." If the movie industry ever does adopt such a system, it would be quite a problem to figure just how many stars, Miss Hitter herself should be accorded. For Thelma thrice has been nominated for an Academy Aware in supporting actress roles. She is widely recognized, by producers and the public, as one of the most dependable performers in show business. The love,of acting has been a major mainstay of her life, anc it started young. She was born in Brooklyn, the only child of a church soloist and his wife. "The French have an old saying, 'An only child makes three fools,'" she said, "and there i some truth to it. "But an only child has a great luxury—the luxury of being lonely People today don'.t appreciate the advantages of being lonely individually. They seek loneliness en masse." Lonely Thelma Hitter at the age of 8 was doing monologues in dubs and churches.. At 16 she went to work in an office to earn the money to attend a drama school. "I could afford only one year at the school," she said. There followed 14 years of stock throughout New England, low paid years of hard work during which she played literally hundreds of roles. But looking back on them now, she thinks of them as pretty wonderful. During that time she met and married a young actor, Joseph Moran, now a retired advertising executive. They have been married more than 30 years, have two children. "Young actors now need 10 times the equipment I needed when I started,'* she said. "Except for the work of a few writers, such as Eugene O'Neill, the plays were pretty bad. They often didn't require much talent. "Much more is demanded of young actors today. Modern plays are written with a deeper insight of how people really are." How does any young person ever summon up the courage to try for a career in a field as capricious as the theater? "I don't know," said Miss Hitter. "The average professional actor works under three months of each year, and earns only about $1,200. I remember one time years ago when I became tired and disgusted with the life. I threatened to quit and take a 9-to-5 job, and my roommate just laughed and said, 'You won't be happy. You'll' meet nothing but squares.' I guess that's the real thing about the theater, and show business generally—it gives you an inside feeling." TV SERVICE Pittsburg Man Dies In Crash PITTSBURG, Kan.

Foresee Rationing For FHA Insurance WASHINGTON (AP)-Stringent rationing of FHA home mortgage insurance within a month was foreseen today unless the congressional housing deadlock is broken soon. Informed Capitol Hill sources predicted the Federal Housing Administration will have to halt action on all new applications by June 1 if new insurance authorization is not voted by then. Congress sets a ceiling on the total value of housing mortgages which may be insured by FHA. This ceiling would be raised six billion dollars immediately and another four billions July 1 under a pending omnibus housing bill. But the measure is blocked in the House Rules Committee.
