Of the 48 features being filmed xiday by Hollywood companies, only ive can be classified as musicals, n much smaller percentage than at any time in recent years. A survey of future plans discloses that only a handful of tune films are in the mix. Most studios, except MOM, have lopped off their musical talent to a minimum.

Most of them require color and to this is added the additional expense of pre-shootlng recording and dance rehearsals, or- chestratin, dubbing, etc. 2. They aren't drawing too well at the box-office. Producers are discovering that the old-style hoopla musical with a little bit of everything thrown in is not as sure-fire with postwar audiences as it was during the war.' But don't worry about the movie musical. It has suffered declines before. And it has been revived by attractions like 'Broadway Melody," "The Gold Diggers," 42rid Street," "Cover Girl" and "Meet Me in St. Louis." All you have to do is wait.

A Kansas gain of 13,650 barrels daily to 294,150 barrels was largely responsible for the continued upward trend in production. California's output increased 3,900 barrels to 918,700; Oklahoma was up 1,750 to 389,900, and the Eastern area gained 1,100 to 65,600. Michigan's production decreasec 9,575 barrels to 41,485; Illinois' was down 4,400 to 186,000, and Indiana was off 1,100 to 17,700. Texas production was unchanged at 2,288,950 barrels. ""•'-,'- ':"".

Testimony in Murder Trial Begins Today SAN ANOKELO— (&)— Testimony in the trial of Wylie R. Tomlinson Jr., 32, Menard ranchman, charged with shooting to death Harold B Opp in a downtown hotel lobby here Nov. 22, may get under way today. Six jurors were chosen yesterday. At an arraignment Tomlinson entered a plea of innocent. In 1934, Opp, 64-year-old rarich- man and oil operator, and Special Banger L. E. Trimble, were indicted in the fatal shooting of W. B. Tomlinson, Sr., in Menard County. Trimble was acqutted of the charges and the indictment against Opp was dismissed in 1942 after the Court of Criminal Appeals reversed and remanded his conviction and sentence to 30 years in the penitentiary.

Bead The News Classified Ads Texas Today By JACK RUTLEDGE Associated Press Staff A Oalveston business firm was glad to know that a satisfied customer at Weimar had checked his bill and found it correct. But the knowledge apparently, was delayed in the malls. It took a cloudburst to get it to its destination. A rain-soaked 62-year-old postal card written Sept. 3. 1885 was found """ v-n the street in Galves- a rainstorm. It was ad- rV. L. Mooclv & Co.. and by J. J, Hollow-ay, Weimar. The card was slightly smaller than today's postals, anci carried n rare stamp. It was only slightly yellowed, and the wrting was legible. A Bible belonging to Tommy has been returned to him by Capt. C. J. Berly of Bryan. Capt. Berly lound it on thp battlefield near Shuri. Everyone at an Amarillo bridge party thought they had a grand slain. It was, said J. L. Adams, a near riot. Mrs. Adams preferred not to mention it. but you know how men are. Mr. Adams told all: One player arranged her hand and was startled to find it contained nothing but spades. The sort of thing one dreams about. The bidding became heated. It turned out all hands contained 13 of a kind. Mrs. Adams son had stacked the deck before he/ left. Equally surprised were spectators watching police chief L, T, Robey of El Paso destroy four slot machines. He hit the jackpot. Twenty-five dollars in paper money rolled out of one machine in a shower of nickels. The owner evidently had more change and left the roll of bills inside the machine which was confiscated during a raid. NEW YORK. N. Y.—The familiar advice, "don't seek shelter under a j tree during a thunderstorm" is fully I justified by the records collected by I the statisticians of the Metropolitan i Life Insurance Company. These I records show that about one third ! of those killed by lightning arc struck while standing under a tree. The statisticians also warn against the danger of being on an open field j or broad plain, or being in a small I trical storm. The last named is a double iiazard for the swimmer not only is In danger of being struck directly, but also of being electrocuted by a charge carried by the water from a bolt striking at some distance. Seeking refuge in small isolated sheds, especially in exposed areas, is likewise dangero'/ >. Lightning kills about 400 persons j a year in the United States, or i about three in every million of the i I population, the statisticians point j iout. About nine out of every ten of i j the deaths occur in rural areas, and i 'they are five times as frequent j i among males as among females. ' City dwellers arc relatively safe ! because the steel structure 1 ; of tall j buildings act as lightning conductors. Occupants of automobiles are j also comparitively safn. even if the i vehicle is struck by lightning.
