Hark Slovens Is GRAND CHAMPION, RESERVE LAMBS Worried Mow Thai Stars Are Back JtOLLYWOOD, March 8.—UP)— Are the wartime male stars worried about their chances for survival now that Clark Gable, Rob- eft Taylor, Tyrone Power, James Stewart and others are back from the service? At least one of them Is—Mark Stevens. "After all," he said, "the major Studios make about 30 big pictures apiece each year. Now that the war is over, each has about 15 leading men to choose from. That doesn't give the newcomer much hope." Mark is a Cleveland boy who was classified 4-F because of a back • injury from a diving accident in the 1934 Junior Olympics. He played opposite Joan Fontaine in "From This Day Forward" at RKO and returned to his home lot, 20th-Fox, to'appear iri "The Dark Corner." His boss, Darryl Zanuck, has issued a memo ordering star billing because "when people see him they'll know he's a star." But Mark remains unconvinced. "What's the use of kidding myself?" he said. "I know I got the breaks because men like Tyrone Power-and Jimmle Stewart were away at war." He said every day on "The Dark Corner" "I expected a note from the boss telling me I was unsuilcd for the role." Perhaps the reason for the actor's Worry is that this is the first time he has a good job and a home of his own. And his wife is expecting a baby. "I remember the days when I slept in Central Park," he mused, '"and the days I stole tips in restaurants so I would have money to buy a meal."

AUSTIN, March 8. — (ff 1 ) — Gov Coke Stevenson Wednesday granted Joseph Van Hodge' of Houston commutation of sentence from death to life imprisonment on a murdci conviction. He approved the board's unanimous recommendation based on its belief that the death sentence in Van Hodge's case was too severe. Attorneys for Van Hodge had claimed that the court in -which he was convicted was not properly constituted because the members of the legislature which created it had not taken the proper oath of office. In an appeal to the court of criminal appeals, (hoy had also contended the appeals court was similarly without power because its members had not taken the proper oath of office. The board, in its recommendation Lo the governor, said: "It is very apparent from the record in the case that the subject would liave received a much less severe sentence had the real defense if -the subject 1 been 'urgcl before the 'ury instead of a fantastic attack upon the constitutional foundations of our state government, not even •emotely suggested by the facts in ;hiis case. We believe the sentence vas too severe, and that this case lid not properly classify'as a death penalty case."

March 8.—(/Pi—The mer- chantsbip EdwUi MarV'.ham sailed from San Francisco "after we definitely knew the \var was over," her skipper said today, carrying around the- Pad el-—for 185 days—war material "that Homebody obviously wanted shipped out of the states rather than have it piled up there." At one stage of its odyssey. the ship—with 25 others—was ordered from one side of Okinawa to the other, and ''we understood this was tor the purpose of hoodwinking a congressional committee into thinking wo had just arrived." the skipper. Cnpt. C. C. Wright of Alamcda. Calif., asserted. Today the vessel began unloading officers' club furniture, "expensive sedans for generals," and other cargo it ha a picked up in Manila in January. Tho'captain, corroborated by chief mate J. L. Mason of Redwood City, Calif., told this story in an interview : "The ship was berthed at pier 19, San Francisco, and had loaded 2,000 tons of -:argo by Aug. 15 when Emperor Hirohito made his surrender offer. After a delay of a week and many conferences, we finally loaded G,700 tons of miscellaneous cargo. "Some items were puzzling to me —crimouflas'e netting, camouflage 1 paint, iron stakes, land-mine markers and a lot of other stuff that somctoodv obviously wanted snippet out of the states rather than have It piled up there—we had on decli 12 of those 11-ton tank trailers, designed to pull disabled tanks froir the battlefields for repairs. We sailec Aug. 26 after we definitely knew the 1 war was over." The ship sailed for Jo Shimn (west of Okinawa) but never got there. It "finally wound up in Uli- thi. under navy control, where we 'spent 42 days." Officers there tolc lh.e skipper that the army and navj didn't want his cargo, but "somcboc^ in the Marianas command would not issue orders to send it home." He was ordered to clump all ammunition aboard nt sea. which he did—an estimated $40,000 worth. *> 20 Australian Brides En Route to Texas LOS ANGELES.
