Smith Betfe Davis may run for some public office By VERNON SCOTT UPI Hollywood Correspondent HOLLYWOOD (UPI) — Bettc Davis, all excited about Sen. Margaret Chase Smith's presidential candidacy, says slie is interested in running for public office herself. "If I had a great deal of money I'd go into pontics—I might anyhow," the two-time Oscar winner said. "Every politician is an actor, and maybe some day I'll turn the tables, I feel I could contribute in politics. Of course, f have a lot to learn, but I've had a lot of exposure to politics." Miss Davis, an outspoken Democrat, was once a resident of Maine and said, "I'd loved to have run for the Senate against Mrs. Smith. But now that she is a possible presidential candidate I just might [vote Republican if she is nom- ;inate:I. 'Personally. I think she j would make the best Kcnubli- jcan candidate, and she'd certainly make it the rm^l excit- 1 ins election in history." j Bctte lighted a cigarette and •soon w:is surrounded by a | cloud ul smoke.

"More than anything else the emotional qualities of women hold them back. And that's as it should be. The majority of females arc emotionally unsuit- cd for politics—or business, for that matter—but there are others who can do the job as well or better than men." .Miss Davis, who has completed four movies during the !>a*l year and a half of a rejuvenated career, obviously belie\ cs that she is one of the women who would make an e.\- eilent politican. "You can compete in that .'ield without losing your femininity." she said. "Mrs. Smith is feminine, and so was Mrs. Rooseveit."

The more she talked about it the more enthusiasm she gathered. ".Naturally, women have a sharper intuitive sense." she said. "But that can be a disadvantage as well as an advantage. A female has to keep herself in check in that department. And I'm sure women are as efticicnt as males. I know £ am." Sex appeal. Miss Davis be- lives. plays no part in winning public office. "Once you make it clear you're running as a competitor and not exercising any female prerogatives, they get the message very quickly." she said. "If a woman forgets her sex in a situation like that, the men will, too."
