The new mathematics represent sn advance toward a solution of "the cocktail party problems" \vhich has fascinated physical scientists r or some- years. The puzzle is this: How in the world can anyone listen intelligently to orly one voice with one ear or both while ix>th his ears are being assailed by many voices, loud soft, near and fa;;? Independent Mechanisms Mathematically it is demonstrated that each ear has an independent ,-nechamsm which permits it to rebate all the various sounds which enter it— any one sound to all f,nd any of the other sounds. With such a mechanism, either or both ears can select any ^sound or sounds it wishes to let in. Those admitted sounds are then passed on to a central mechanism which' has to relate what the left ear hears with what- the right ear has picked up and. make something of the mess of sounds, which is a very neat trick that all of us perform without ever drawing * long breath over it. What comes out of this second mechanism is passed on to third, and one whichs still stubbornly defies mathematics and is "^ of the toughest problems which must be solved bei be a true mechanical bradn. This is the mechanism of judging— not only judging where the sounds come from and what they mean but also judging whether- they are worth listening to.

'NEW YORK (OP) — The TV machine is sfauffed with musical shows Biis season—11 new ones and seven holdovers. One of ifoe big puzzlers in the trade is how •many will wind up victims of faEo.u/t. "A lot of them aren't going to .make it," said Polly Bengal with melancholy detachment. "A lot of people are going to be off. Personally, I wasn't too sure myself whether I wanted to' do tihis show. And I haven't decided yet whether I was right in doing a series." Miss Bergen, a 27-year-old export of Knoxville (where she was issued as Nellie-Paulina Bungla) ]-is jockeying one of the new musical klatsohes an every - other week Saturday night affair on NBC-TV. Busy At Home "'I didn't know whether I wanted 'to work this hard and then '••Here were all my family respc abilities," explained Miss-Bergen ^s to her skittishness in taking on a show. "I have -a 10-year-old daughter Cher bus-band's by a previous, marriage) aoid a husband to take care of and an ia-roo>m apartment to run. "We do an awful lot of entertaining and in fact, when Dean Martin fell out as regular alternate to my series, they offered me the full 26 weeks on NBC and I turned it down. I didn't want to do it. It was just too much." Miss Bergen, a fugitive from fche movies and nightclubs, hit TV paydirt last season whan she capered as Helen Morgan on a CBS-TV "Playhouse 90." "My biggest problem this year was deciding whether I should take on'my own show this season or be a sought-after guest. One of the biggest problems in the business is getting guests for shows.

She also shrogiged oilf two of the three writers she hired for that first show. "Believe me, when I say I didn't resent the reviews," said •Miss Berigen. "On toe day before the ghow evenyibody knew it wasn't falling together the way we had hoped it would. But it was the first show and nobody had fihe courage at fihe last moment to do anything about it. "'The critics were right. But I a]so feel that first shows shouldn't be reviewed, Nobody is ever at his best for a first Show, Everybody is just too nervous. I know that when I did night clubs I always had a sore throat on opening night." . ' • Italian Acfress' Distaste for US Pizza Stirs fuss HOLLYWOOD M- Sophia Loren has herself in hot minestrone with the U.S. pizza industry. It all started • in Washington where Sophia and Gary Grant went far location shooting on "Houseboat." A reporter asked an obvious question: Does America "do right by Italian cooking? Sophia, wflo gives honest answers, said no and singled out pizza as the horrible example.-It was an innocuous opinion but it vas potent enough for the publicity miffis Back in Hollywood, there was a scane where Grant and" Miss Loren discover love over a hot dog. A pizza is as dramatic as •& hot dog -so the movie now .will show them falling in love- over pizza. Call In Expert The Screen Actors Guild lists jio actor who can also bake pizza so a bona fide pizza maker was RETIRED EXECUTIVE ' NEEDS NEW PRESTIGE BY BEULAH STOWE 'Six months after I retired I felt so discouraged I thought I had lost everything that made life worth living," says Charles H., a former rice president of a railroad. • Mr. H. found that he lost his job and income with retirement. He also lost his business friends, prestige and his identification. • He became less' in demand on civic committees, where his job had been the basic reason for his selection. He felt that he,and Ms wife were invited only out of kindness when they were included among the guests of their former business associates. < "Mrs. H. explained it this way," he says, "She said that she was used to being 'nobody,' except my wife. But my whole life had been aimed at .becoming 'somebody,' and I did it, and then it was taken away." ,-'"-• Mr. H. has three suggestions for men who were successful in business and who feel stripped of their identification when retirement comes: , . • 1. Find a new identification: as deacon in your church, as chairman of a community fund drive, as operator of a summer camp for boys, as an expert in stocks and bonds, or wood carving. 2. Cultivate friendships. You have more time than you have ever had before to seek out and become acquainted with people you would enjoy knowing. You have more time to answer letters and renew dies with scattered family and friends. 3. Organize your days into a regular pattern. Include several hours work in each day. House, yard, or-mental work. The will to work may lead you back into a new career or a new kind of activity.

(AH rights reserved, NEA Service, Inc.) hired. The publicity department reasoned that it would be good copy if Sophia would eat good 'American pizza and maybe eat her words too. But the gimmick backfired. The ^c-ene, a tender one even with Pizza, had to -be shot some 20 times over a two hour period. That figured about 20. slices of pizza for Sophia. Her opinion, once a polite pre- erence, turned into a' vehement dislike. Anyone but a publicity man would have dropped the matter thsre. After all, 20 slices of pizza is pretty filling even for an Italian. But after an offhand remark there and a little needle here, Tony OappoTilo, the piaza "'chef, took 'Miss Loren's attitude as a personal affront. His parents came from Sophia's home town of Naples but that made'no difference. Defends US Pizza "I grew up on old country piz- zn," says Cappello. "It's lousy usually made out of stale dough and so' soggy it would sink a whale. .The new generation Ital :an-Americans have perfected, piz za to a tender crispness that has •made it a national dish." He offers one argument. v He is a third generation pizza maker His grandfather baked it on Mul berry ^Street in Greenwich Village. "He baked it the way Mass Lo ren prefers — and he died a poor man," says Cappello. / HOLLYWOOD W — Lew Ayres" reported to work at RKO-Pathe to film a Zaae Grey Theatre for CBS-TV. It was the first time he had been en the sound -stage junce 1929 when he did a test. "I' wouldn't say I'm. superstitious," said Lew. "but a year later appeared in 'All Quiet on the Western Front.' " That picture catapulted Lew into overnight stardom. HOLLYWOOD 'w — LiLi Hua the Churese actress who is here costarring with .

You may not approve of the age-old Catholic devotion to die Blessed Virgin. Perhaps you have heard— and believed — that this is "un-Scriptural"... that Catholics are trying to establish Mary as a divine person equal in power to God. But if you will look at the facts, you will see that these things are not true...and you will realize that Mary can exert a wonderful influence in your personal life. It certainly is not "un-ScripturaT to recognize that Mary is the Mother of Jesus' Christ H we are to be truly "Scriptural," we must further acknowledge that Christ.is the eternal Son of the eternal Father —a Divine Person who assumed a human nature like ours in all things except sin. And while Mary did not give Jesus His divine nature, the Savior was her Son... as truly as anyone is the son of his own mother. In view of these truths, how caa anyone look upon'Mary as just, another woman, or just another mother? Why should we hesitate to honor one whom God so greatly honored...and upon whom He conferred a surpassing holiness and cbmplete .freedom from sin? Why should we believe that one so dose to the Son of God in his earthly life is not dose and dear to Him in His eternal Kingdom? It is erroneous, of course, to think that Catholics worship Mary as a divine person. But we do love and venerate her for the unique place she occupies in God's plan for our salvation... for her intimate association witB the all-holy Son of God.. .for her own holiness. But, you may say — why should we pray to Mary when we can ptay directly to God, as the Scriptures command? The answer is that Catholics do pray to God and they seek from him grace and forgiveness—for these are blessings which only God can grant. But there is no ^law of God which commands us, when we go to Him in prayer... that we must go alone. Like St. Paul,-we believe in praying for others and having others pray for us. And whose prayers could find greater favor in the sight of God than those of the Mother of His Divine Son? These are the chief reasons for the world-wide Catholic devotion to the Blessed Virgin. These are the reasons .why millions of people, .in every land and every-language, are. heard to pray: "Hail, Mary, full of grace! the Lord is' with thee; blessed art _ thou amongst women; and blessr ' ed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus..." The name of the Blessed Virgin . is in the headlines these days',"., and people everywhere ate discussing her place in Catholic -devotions.- We have prepared a .special pamphlet dealing with Mary's place in the Christian creed and will send you a copy free of charge.

"Burlesque can't even be classified as "entOTtainiment ainy more," says Jean, a sultry redhead. ."Ninety per "cent of the girls stripping today are real dogs. They're short, saggy and 'fat.
