8 - Friday, Mar. 6, 1964 Redlands Daily Facts IN HOLLYWOOD Way of the films: bubble or suffer By Erskine Johnson HOLLYWOOD - (NEA)How to win a movie career, 1964 style: Suffer or effervesce on television. The bome-screen springboard just landed two attractive and talented young ladies in Hollywood as potential stars. Joan Hackelt arrive via suffering. Oh, how she suffered on those television nfedical shows — dope addiction, epilepsy, sub- duable hematoma and assorted lesser ailments. Anne Roberts made it via ef- ervescing — in a series of commercials which put her in the Julia Meade-Betty Fumess league and also earned her close to $150,000. Both gals are television- trained pros and representatives of the new breed of young feminine players warming up for big screen stardom. Yesterday's movie personalities learned to act in the movies in which they were starred. Today's thinlcing is, "Learn to act, sister, and you are ready for the movies." Intense Joan Hackelt learned her trade via roles in prac ically every major television series and then graduated to such specials as "Rebecca," in which she played the role of the second Mrs. DeWinter. In the off-Broadway play, "Call Me by My Rightful Name," she played the promiscuous heroine. A ver satile young lady who has a delightful sense of humor. Five years ago when she was a model. Fox called New York- bom Joan in for a screen test. On arrival, she bubbled: "You're so lucky I arrived. I photograph beautifully and I've never studied acting with anyone." She recalls, "I had them drooling. But of the five girls they tested, only Tuesday Weld won a contract." After all her television suffering, she's hoping her first movie will give her the role of a girl without problems. "Everyone knows how well I cry and suffer," she says. "So no more suffering, please." Ann Roberts of the piercing black eyes is also a New Yorker with scores of stage and television credits. But her television commercial character (Katy Winters) put her in the spotlight and earned her more money than she had ever made. She hopes for seductive, sexy movie roles "so I can wear lots of eye make-up and be BAD. During her first week in Hoi lywood, however, she was prac tical. She purchased a home. Short takes: The number of movies eligible for Oscar con sideration—290—is down again In last year's race 317 were elibible . . . Jack Lcmmon and George Axelrod may have started some thing when they put tongues in cheek and filed the corporate name of "Murder, Inc." to film their new comedy, "How Murder Your Wife." Maybe now we'll be hearing that "The L Shaped Room" was filmed by Architects Anonym ous; "It's a Mad World" by Paranoia, Inc., and that "Cle opatra" was produced by Stockholders, Dejected. WHAT'S IN THE CIVIL RIGHTS BILL? (2) PUBLIC ACCOMMODATIONS: Outlaws discrimination by refusal of service in hotels, motels, restaurants,senrlce stations, theaters and sports arenas.

Post office can't always help find lost" people The post office is in the busi ness of giving service, but in .some cases, the postmaster finds he can't help. One example of this involves (he furnishing of changes of ad dress. Redlands Postmaster Daniel J. Stanton said most of the calls he receives requestmg an ad dress come from people w h o want to find a friend or re-establish contact with a former companion. Too, there are the occasional requests to trace someone who left town owing bills or those involving such things as divorce or separation matters. But to each of these inquiries. Mr. Stanton said his answer must be "no." in order to comply with postal regulations. He noted that names and addresses may be furnished only for correction of mailing lists or for election boards or registration commissions. The only other exception to the departmental regulation is to permit Red Cross disaster workers to have such informa tion to ease the worries of friends and relafivcs if the community should sometime be in a "disaster" category. Knight to speak in San Bernardino at luncheon Former California Governor Goodwin Knight will be the fea tured speaker at a Republican luncheon Monday in San Ber nardino. It will be Knight's first ap pcarance in the county since he announced last month that he may be a candidate for governor in 1966. He will address an invilation- only gathering of San Bernard! no Valley community leaders at the Gold Room of the California Hotel. Knight served as governor un til 1958. He has since remained active as a state Republican Party leader. At a press conference in San Francisco two weeks ago, the popular ex-governor announced that he is considering a return to politics in 1966. As an indication of his plans, he held aloft the current license plates on his personal automobile. They read: GOV—166. Planners approve zone variance in Yucaipa SAN BERNARDINO (CS) A zoning variance to allow change in plans for construction of apartment house units on parcel of Yucaipa property was granted Thursday by the Coun ty Planning Commission. But the commission made as a condition of its approval the erection of a chain link fence between the property involved and that of a neighbor protest ing the variance. The applicant was L. D. Lit trell, the owner of about two acres on the south side of ave nue "J," west of 5th street. The area is zoned for apartments. Neil Pfuib, county planning di rector, told the commission that Littrell had been previously granted approval for nine units of which four were built, but had filed a new plan to add five more units, bringing the total eventually to be erected to 14 Littrell explained he had been able to work out a better plan for using the property. In another action affecting the Yucaipa area, the commission approved rural-residential zoning, with two acres for a building, site, for a litUe over seven acres on the east side of Vermont street, south of avenue "H." The applicant for the change of zone, from agricultural use, was a group headed by Henry Ter Best. Neil Pfulb, county planning di rector, reported that the 1 a n d around the seven acres had been developed into a "hodge-podge" of lot sizes because the area had been broken up by metes and bounds. This provides for making divisions without showing how the land is to be used in relation to surrounding property. Pfulb said approving rural- residential zoning without some controls would encourage that kind of development. He also said that a large-scale housing project on the property would increase traffic on local streets. The commission then put the two-acre minimum on 1 o t sizes and also directed that the recommendation for the zone not be sent to the Board of Supervisors for final action until land for the widening of Fremont be contributed to t h c county by Ter Best and his group. ccietif MISS JOSEPHINE REAY Society Editor Sune Richards Gives Yucaipa Club Program Mrs. Gardner Parker, president of Yucaipa AVoman's club, welcomed the many guests pres ent at this week's meeting to hear the lecture by Mrs. Sune Richards, minister and artist, who presented her "Young People in the Bible" program.
