MOUNT CARMEi; PA., THURSDAY, JUNE 13, 1940. PAGE THREE. r MOUNT CARMEL ITEM. " t At 6 (?), Ann Todd Looks Like Shirley Temple's Successor, But She Doesn't Look Like Shirley BY PAUL HARRISON NEA Service Staff Correspondent . HOLLYWOOD Ever since Shir. ley Temple packed up her dolls, pic ture books and $300,000 bonus check and trudged out '. 20th-Fox, agents and mamas have been clamoring at the studio gate with a frilled assortment of substitute Wonder Tots and Miracle Moppets, most of them made up to look as much as possible like the original. But the company wasn't having any; thank you. It went out and hired Ann Todd from under trie noses of the Warner brothers. Darryl Zanuck and his aides didn't want anyone who looked like Shir. ley. Ann has dark brown eyes and long, straight auburn hair. She can sing a little, but doesn't dance. She Is acknowledged by all Hollywood as a first-rate actress. The studio isn't making any an houncements or claims for its Ten pie successor. Story properties which were sought or created for Shirley are being studied as vehi Cles for Ana Todd, but it isn't likely that they'll ever be : identified, as Jams from the Temple shelf. , . ' They will probably be changed, anyway, with dramatic values built up to fit the more intense,, emotional youngster who, not quite 8, seems a good deal better poised than the bland and innocent Shirley was at 12. " PARENTS NOT INTERESTED IN MOVIES AT FIRST There is evidence that 20th-Fox Is planning a long-range build-up of its new actress because it's starting out now to establish her age as 6. Her mother, Mrs. A. U. Mayfield, says her daughter will be 8 in August. Ann Mayfield was 5 when her parents first brought her here from Denver to visit a flock of relatives. I Everyone seemed to think she ought ! to be in movies but the Mayfields weren't much interested then. They allowed her to be registered at Central Casting, but no jobs had turned up when they returned to Denver. pv y.-.. j I t luaiiiBiiwiilHUii Ann Todd. . acknowledges actress. &31 . All Hollywood he's first-rate Two years ago, illness forced the father to sell his weekly newspaper, and in the space of a few weeks the family had come back to Hollywood and Ann had been launched im pressively in movies - after having been noticed in a church play, George Cukor chose her from 27 youngsters tested for the part of Herbert Marshall's daughter in Township School Close For Vacation The public schools of Mount Car mel Township closed today for the Hummer vacation. . They will reopen in the fall. Drawing 'Without Plan Aids Mental Treatment Doodling drawing without any plan has a definite value in the treatment of mental case's and helps relieve mental tension, in the opto ton of Dr. Purcell G. Shube, assist ant superintendent at Boston State hospital. Sine 1934 mental patients at the hospital iave been allowed to draw -in fact, are encouraged to draw- and tha results show that "active patients become quieter, more con trolled and reasonable, and the restrained patients are less de pressed.". The treatment, Dr. Shube says, Is of no value to artists, however. lit can be used as a therapeutic medium only when it represents an Unused potentiality . . . Mor than 8.000 "doodles" have been collected at the hospital and have been classified into the work of restrained mental cases and the work of the active insane. Each type of patient has definite qualities in the work done and, by Analyzing these, 2Jr. Shube believes he can tell whether artists were sane when they painted pictures for museums. Study of the modern artists has led him to believe that many of the artists were insane. And when sur realists are mentioned, Shube re marks: "If I had a patient who produced that work, I would say without hesitation that he was suffering from dementia praecox or psycho-neurosis." 7w JVjBS'-t 1" THERE'S never a dull - moment for the motorist from the time of a crash to the resulting damage suit.

California Restaurant Trade More people in Los Angeles "eat out" than in any other city in the United States with the exception of New York, according to Bina Wood, instructor in restaurant management at the University of California and restaurant owner. "More Los Angeles residents eat dinners in restaurants than New Yorkers do, but the New Yorkers score when it comes to lunching out," she said "New York has more restaurants than Los Angeles because of its more transitory population." Ac cording to Miss Wood's statistics, the restaurant industry in California now has the third, largest payroll is the state. -?:;-, v..; WEDDING RINGS In white or yellow gold, carved or with diamonds.

Since then she has had more ex perience than the average actress of any age. She did "Zero Hour" at Republic, "Stranger Than Desire" at Metro, "Little Orvie" at RKO, Twentieth-Pox tested her for "Swanee River" (too large), for Grapes of Wrath" (too small) and for a secondary role in "The Bluebird" (Just right). But It didn't put her under contract then. ALREADY HAS HAD MANY ROLES She played Leslie Howard's daughter in "Intermezzo" and Ed ward Robinson's daughter In "Dr. Ehrlich." ; . "Lately she has been working in 'All This and Heaven Too' with Bette Davis,". Mrs. Mayfield , said. "Warners had optioned her -for an other picture, with Merle Oberon, but It was postponed. So while she was still working there, we accepted this contract with Pox." Ann was signed on April IS and began work that' day as Tyrone Power's little sister in "Brigham Young." No future pictures have been announced, but it's guessed that she'll play two or three more progressively important roles before being tried in a lead. Little Theater Group Entertained The Little Theater Group were guests of their directress, Isabell Rice at her Snydertown home last night when she entertained over twenty of the members at a lawn party. The outing was held in the rear of the house, on grounds decorated with Japanese lanterns. Home pre pared food was served from a large table, buffet style.
