FHE !Acfor Soys Long Loy-Offs Shattering Actors' By CLEMENT D. JONES UP Sta« Correspondent HOLLYWOOD, Jan. 21 (IP) Speaking with unique authority as the actor who has played in more films •—600, according to Screen Actors' Guild records — than any other •player, Philip Van Zandt says rad- .ically changed conditions have' ; made "reluctant dragons 1 ' of many •'a hitherto fire-breathing actor. '.. It is the long intervals between roles. Van Zandt believes, that is ; shattering the "security"of actors. •.When it's gone the player goes to .pieces the moment he steps in front of the cameras. It is happening to the ; best. ; Van Zandt, who passed the 600th mark when he went into the Hecht-Lancaste'r wide-screen Technicolor film, "Bronco • Apache," starring Butt Lancaster, said .he has-.been'an unwilling beneficiary of the actor's new hazard• Better established by virtue of being the best-employed actor in •Hollywood, his momentum has kept him going, and he hasn't fallen victim to the before-the-camexa "freeze-up" that has hit 30 many others. ' .". • The result is his phone ha* been ringing frequently, and the voice at .the other end has been .saying: "Can you get over here on the «et right away? Something has happened to So-and-so. He just can't seem to read his lines." "Actors' loss of 'security' combines with another deadly factor," explained Van Vandt. "It used to be that an actor, made jumpy by a lay-off- appeared on the set, felt the leisurely tempo around him; got a little good-natured kidding from the director, and presently felt his confidence surging back. "But no more. Everything's deadly serious now. It's on your toes and ready to go. That's the new factor. When it fuses with the other one, it touches off an inner explostion that blown him right out of pictures—permanently."

' ' .. '.' Businessmen and government officials here agree that this postwar republic, a major source of rice for Japanese tables and potentially an'important, source of mineral ore, can; also become one of this country's best customers. 'This is quite a' reversal from the pre-war relationship of these two Asian .countries when Burma and Japan were, at best, only nodding acquaintances as far as trade re- 'lations went.'But the'basis for the optimism of the Japanese is 'not far to seek.' Their reasoning can.be summed up like this: . 1. Burma, despite war ravages, is,.with Thailand, one of the few countries in this part of rthe- world, with, an export-surplus foreign trade and a comfortable cushion of foreign exchange with which to purchase foreign goods. As a result, it has relatively, few import restrictions. .'••:-..' • 2. It has taken a trade policy independent of the British Common. wealth. In 1953, the Rangoon Government abolished the preferential tariff for Commonwealth bloc countries and established a single- rate tariff system. . 3. Burma has shown no evidence of discriminating against Japan because of World War H animosities. Though there undoubtedly exists anti-Japanese feeling in that country, Burma In late 1953 was among the first countries to accord Japan equal tariff treatment with, other countries adhering to the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade .(GATT). 4- Japan, which tost the rice fields of Korea and Formosa and the mineral resources of Manchuria in the Pacific War, has been buying heavily of Burmese rice, and when Burma rebuilds its industries again, wants Burmese cotton, tungsten, tin,' iron ore, lumber and petroleum as well. 5. Burma, on the other hand, is In the midst of an economic re- habilation program. It must rebuild its shattered transportation and communication systems, its petroleum and mining industries. Japanese are confident they can supply the machinery, equipment and technical know-how Burma needs as fast as the Rangoon Government can restore peace and order to the country. The one development which more than any other caused Japanese hopes to soar on tha possibilities of trade with Burma was the result of the international bidding for locomotives, rolling stock and rail equipment on which the Burmese Government Invited tenders in 1953. Twenty-five per cent of the total orders, amounting to $5,760,000, went to Japanese firms. Tokyo immediately (began revising its views on Burma as a business client. Today, it is one of the key nations in Japanese plans for building up "technical cooperation" relations with neighboring Asian countries. Mathieson Expands Plants Mme.

PASADENA, Jan. 21 — CSp.)— Mathieson 'Chemical Corp. has completed • an expansion wogram costing approximately $1,500.000 at its Pasadena plants, John R. Beatty, Houston operations manager for Mathieson, announced today. Commercial .production will begin this :we,ek,: Beatty said, in a new'$1.1 million 'unit for-the manufacture of chemical fertilizer of the high analysis, pelletized type. Operation of. the new. unit is expected to increase production at Mathieson's Pasadena operations by 25 .per cent, Beatty said... ' •' Modifications'of the existing.sul- phuric -acid plant and fertilizer plant at Pasadena, costing slightly more than $400,000, have also been completed; in recent weeks. This expansion, Beatty said, provides the Houston area with the largest:chemical fertilizer plant in the Southwest and one of the largest in .the nation.. . ' Mathieson manufactures several grades of chremical fertilizer at its Pasadena ' plant These products are'marketed throughout the United States under ,Mathieson's brand name, "Ammo-Phos." The plant: was' one, "of- the first In the world to manufacture high analysis, pelletized fertilizers. These fertilizers 'contain''a higher percentage of,plant food than ordinary fertilizer and have substantially reduced the, cost and labor involved in land, improvement for farmers of Texas and the. Southwest. Also; the pelletized material is more uniform, easier to spread, .and is not blown away by wind. The present expansion program continues a policy of development at Houston, which began , with Mathieson'g acquisition of the Pa-, sadena sulphuric acid and fertilizer plants in 1949, The operations consume large quantities of sulphur mined in the Houston sWa^ While the new fertilizer unit will make the same products as. made in previously, existing .facilities, Beatty said certain process improvements have been included in the new unit. Construction of the unit began in January, 1953. Housework Feels TV Impact Survey Shows Change In Home Life Dog Accident NEBRASKA CITY, Neb. <W— Because the little dog insisted on walking in the middle of a highway, Bernard Cunningham overturned his car In trying to avoid hitting it. Cunningham had to break a window i.o get out. Neither the dog nor Cunningham was injured. The mockingbird actually improves on the music of other birds. It has a great variety of notes and the gift of musical composition- NEW YORK, Jan. 21—flPI—Tele- vision has caused more changes in home life than a new balby, one survey of homerriakers reveals. Living rooms have become dining, rooms, coffee tables dining tables, and the dinner 'hour dependent on network schedules. A whole new problem in child rearing has grown—the problem of how to get the children away from the set and to bed on schedule. Dishwashing has become a complex chore — with homemakers either getting them done in a hur- 'ry once the meal is over, leaving them in the sink, or washing them a few at a time during station breaks- Television has speeded up housework for some women, slowed it up for others. The changes wrought by the new medium were outlined in a survey of 100 families in the Philadelphia area. The check, made by door-to-door questioning, was conducted by a washing powder clinic, (Tide) which keeps tab on how America lives, so it also can know how it keeps clean; Nearly two-thirds of the women Florida Town Uses Trap To Entertain NAPLES, Fla-, Jan- 21 — (IPI — Many towns have hen accused of operating "speed traps" to glean dollars from out-of-town moobrists, but this city, where officials tend otward practical jokes is operating a speed trap in reverse. Onee a week Chief of Police Cale Jones "arrests" an oilt-of- state motorist—not for any offense but simply because ho is from out-of-state. Jones hauls the innocent driver before Mayor W. Roy Smith for "questioning." At this point the bewildered, and probably sputtering, motorist is let in on the joke. Mayor Smith hands him a key to the city and a "summons" to the city of Naples —including one night's free lodging for the driver and his party, free meals for a day, free theater tickets, ancTa tour of the city. It's Naples' way of selecting a tourist of the week to help publicize its charms. PENNEY'S ALWAYS FIRST CTUAUTY!

Mom has to buy the cereal the space man eats. Eleven per cent of the women admitted to having burned at least one meal while engrossed in TV. A bride of six months confessed, "I don't need TV to make me imrn the meals." Half the'women said their dish- \vashing routine had been altered. "Sometimes we leave them and rush out to the sink between acts," said one matron. "This is a show in itself." One family said it hit on the Idea of locking the kitchen door until the last pot was dried and put away. Forty-eight per cent of the women tried to do housework and watch at the same time- Ten women reported scorching shirts as a result. One woman reported having her eyes crossed.

Henri Bonnet, one of the women on this year's list of best dressed, says any woman can dress fashionably—and without an original design to her name. ••'.Mme'..'Bonnet is the first to admit, though, that her wardrobe includes a dozen or so Dior originals. Wearing desgins created by France's best-known couturiers is a diplomatic mission for Helle Bonnet. As wife of the French ambassador to the United States, she . wants.'-to-, do _h>.r .part in keeping the eyes of ; the fashion world turned to Paris salons. ; But Helle Bonnet won a top place on the New'.York Dress Institute's annual" list,.because; of far more than the Paris labels in her clothes. A designer Sri her own right (hats are her specialty), she has an expert's eye for line, color and detail. - ' ; Although French by adoption (she is Greek-born), Mme. Bonnet has the Frenchwoman's enthusiasm for the "basic black dress 1 ' and the "Good tailored suit. 1 ' , "You,can easily go through a whole season with one good;suit," she said. Accessories will give the necessary variety — hut both the suit and'accessories must .be of excellent quaility. • Mme. Bonnet's advice is simple: 1- Wear what is becoming to you, and 2. Choose clothes with utmost simplicity, "K your tioluies are simple you never get out of fashion," she said. The smart: woman, Mme. Bonnet said, plans her wardrobe with care, and doesn't yield to whim until the basic clothes are selected. -,..; "Don't be tempted,' 1 she smiled. "The novelty dress can come later.'! . The emphasis in Mme. Bonnet's wardrobe is on evening dresses. Her wardrobe includes several prints, a bouffant gown of pink and goM lasme for formal occasions, and a white satin with an overprint of splashy black carnations and exaggerated fullness in the back. • Her daytime costumes include a •black and white tailored suit, two simple black nilk dresses, and a <iark fteige woolen. Mme. Bonnet regards the shorter hemline as inevitable in current fashion. She's all for it, and has been busy turning up her own hemlines for spring. Designers bring forth really new lines "only one* in four years," she said- This spring, she thinks, ia the one In four.
