Here's how: Place iia ordinary chair so that its rear legs and back rest flat on tea floor. Then challenge anyone to raise the chair to an upright position by grasping the end of one of the rear legs. This is the only hold permitted and the chair must be raised with one hand. Those who try this stunt usually fail unless they happen to know the secret of the trick. The toppled chair is raised by grasping it at the extreme lower end of one of the rear legs. Be mire that none of the leg extends beyond the little finger, which is then used as a fulcrum to raise the chair upright Day to Night Change-Over AT breaks and night falls, yet each transition occurs quite smoothly.

The director had viewed the final version of "The Misfits" and made a few minor changes. Then it was sent to the labs to rush prints for a mass release next month. His work finally behind! him, he relaxed over marinated 1 herring and a beer and talked about what turned out to be the most publicized film in recent years. "I think Clark is great in it," said Huston, a man with a Jong, weathered face and a gray skull cay of hair, "He liked the part. He thought it was the best he had had in 20 years. "Our first desire was to get the picture out in time lor the Academy Awards because I felt sure jMe'd be nominated. It would have been nice to have it happen while his memory was still fresh. But the picture would have suffered if we had hurried that much. So next year he can be nominated.

In their try for a recount in the November election, the state GOP made a detailed study of the way election judges handled incompletely marked ballots in 214 of the state's 241 paper ballot counties. They found that 94,104 votes were counted in the 214 counties and a projection of the 25 other counties would push the figure well over 100,000. Some Republicans insisted that these votes could have switched Texas from the Kennedy to the Nixon column. In some precincts ballots on which the voter failed to mark out all but one political party were counted, in othere such ballots were thrown out. It all depended on which conflicting section of the Texas Election Code the presiding judge followed. Article 6.06 states that the failure of the voter to mark his ballot in strict conformity with the directions shall not invalidate his ballot and that a ballot shall be counted in a!! races in which the intention of the voter is clearly ascertainable. Article 8.21 says that no ballot shrill be counted if the names of two or more candidates for the same office are left unscratched. The percentage of ballots thrown out varied widely from! Other counties checked showed county to county in November. In I a range of 5 to 12 per cent of the Cooke County only 1.42 per cent were not counted. In Waller County the figure was 24.58 per cent, or one out of four. The variation between precincts within a county were even greater. In the Bethel Precinct of Anderson County, 63 per cent of the certified copies furnished by coun- bailots were thrown out. In four adjacent precincts was counted. every ballot Besides Waller, counties In which a high percentage of ballots were thrown out included Anderson 12.95 per cent, Aransas 13.92, Atascosa 16.51, Bailey 12.58, Bandera 12.03, Blanco 12.87, Burleson 13.34, Camp 13.09, Chambers 15.24, Collingsworth 14.99, Colorado 18.57, Culberson 13.10, Dimmit 14.70, Edwards 20.69 Fort Bend 15.86, Freestone 14.99, Frio 17.23, Glasscock 12.44, Goliad 17.93, Guadalupe 12.10, Hudspeth 14.80, Kerr 13.78, Live Oak 14.50, Loving total number of ballots not counted. The Republicans are also urging a closer check of adding up vote totals. In comparing the secretary of state's list, used to compile to certified state total, with ty clerks, the Republicans found 83 discrepancies in 55 counties. A scattering of precincts had a higher total vote in the presidential race than there were voters.

"I can't cure the world's ignorance on this matter. When people talk about her, they are generally talking about themselves. They don't really know her." About Gable. Huston said: "I had known Clark for a number of years but never very well. I had the impression of him as having a kind of implacability, even a lethargy, I discovered in working with him that this was only a facade. "Underneath he was very earnest, even eager to please. Whenever he had a call, he was always on the set a half-hour early, always ready with his lines. Only once did he ever blow up. "That was due to a misunderstanding about whether he was called for a rehearsal. His wife had to fly from Reno to Los Angeles to see the baby doctor, and he wanted to go with her; he was more excited about having a baby than anything in the world. She went alone, and he found out he wasn't needed on the set after all. He blew sky high. "The rest of the time, everything went smoothly. We started at 10:30 in the morning because of Marilyn, and he was ahmys there at 10. He worked until 6 but would have stayed later if we needed him. He was in his best shape in years and seemed extremely happy in his marriage. Now he is gone. It's pretty hard to get used to." 12.79, Willacy 15.97, and Yoakum 12.45. Counties with a low percentage of ballots thrown out included Brazos 3.74 per cent, Briscoe 4.46, Coke 4.67, Delta 4.43, Erath 4.46, Gray 4.04, Hardeman 4.01.
