WHERE TO GO WHAT TO DO Behind The Movie Sets WITH BUDDY MASON Hollywood, Calif. — Don't be surprised if Film Stars Shirley Jones and Barbara Ruick take along Campfire Girls' on their next Northern location! There's, nothing like shivering in night dress on the lawn of a Maine cabin in the "wee-sma" hours to convince a pair of. amateur tinder-tinkerers that they should leave such chores to Indians, veteran firebugs and the Campfire contingent. * *. * It all happened on location in Maine . while 20th Century^Fox was filming Rodgers and Hammerstein's "Carousel." Retiring, one night, to their cabin at Outlook Inn, Southport Island, the two lovelies stepped into a cold, cheerless interior. Now, in Maine, "when the frost is oh the pumpkin," the defrosting job requires llame-throwers. When it's "a trifle chilly," to the natives, that's the cue for visitors to burrow a deep hole in dead center of a feather, mattress,.take along survivor's rations and hibernate until the next "warm spell" arrives. Perhaps it was the spacious fireplace .that disarmed Shirley and Barbara, Or those "Winter Homelife in Maine" type of paintings seen in every art gallery. The girls didn't know that most of this "fireplace art" originates in steam-heated Greenwich Village studios to which the artists have fled from Maine, just one jump ahead of chilblains. No pne told them that the crackling fires were lit for modeling purposes only, by fingers thawed out far from the rigors of a "Down .East Cold Spell." //i io SURF BALLROOM TWO GREAT ATTRACTIONS L SUNDAY, APRIL 29 Pat Boone Top Male Vocalist of Records — TV Star of Godfrey TV — Radio Shows with KILLINGER'S ORCHESTRA WED., MAY 2nd The Waltz King — Wayne King Recording — TV Star Top Favorite Band With Dancers Reservations Now Available Both Dates TUESDAY Thru THURSDAY ALGONA© The WEST'S.

THE IAST HUNT starring TAYLOR•GRANGER Lloyd Oebro Russ NOLAN • PAGET-TAMBLYN There, in front of the two girls, was their picturesque fireplace, complete with tinder, matches and logs. And, there on the wall was a "Winter Homelife in Maine" type of art calendar for a pattern. All the props for a cheerful, warming fire were assembled. All, that is, except a Special Effects-Man to coax a fire to life. Kaive and trusting, Shirley Jones arid Barbara Ruick, built a neat pyramid of tinder and started oil th^ir first box of rrt'atdhes. Soii..-Vj\v, everything had Worked more smoothly in mat dimly remembered, clothbound edition of "The Pioneei Girls in Maine." * * # At a stage bordering on iota: exasperation 'and just short ol complete numbness, the stubborn operation jelled. Perhaps the burnt match-sticks caught fire- At any rate, "Carousel's" famous femmes whooped '? with delight and retired to their bedroom to await the hard earned warmth. Half an .hour later, Miss Ruick awoke :,to find smoke drifting into the room, Alarmed, she hastened to the'living room omy to find it filled with smoke. Rousing Miss Jones, both girls raced out into the open crying "FIRE!" • * ' » * Until an emergency forces two nightie - clad beauties - in - distress out into the night, it is difficult to conceive the true stature of the average male. Men appeared from nowhere, spied the girls—and became heros on the spot.'

Somehow, the sight of Miss Jones in her flannelette nightgown and Miss Ruick in her modern "shortie" sleeping coat, as they shivered in the night air, brought out enough male protective instinct to cope with a major disaster. At the peak of confusion, when heroics were fast becoming a drug on the market, at least a dozen of the hardier heros dashed into the smoke-filled cabin. There, they discovered that the damper had been accidentally closed. And just when all hands were primed for deeds of derring- do! *' * * "After the cabin fiad been aired out sufficiently by the frigid night air, the girls returned. On the wall, "Winter Homelife in Maine" leered at them from its calendar in the deep-freeze atmosphere. Who knows? Perhaps they have Campfire Girls in Greenwich Village!
