PAGB TWO BLYTHEVTLI.E (ARX.) COUHTER NEWS TUESDAY, ATKJ. «!, 1»B? Jane Russell, Howard Hughes May Be at End of Association By HOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD (AP) — The long and fabulous association of Jane Russell and Howard Hughes is due to end in December and the chances are it won't be renewed. "We've been talking," said the brunette beauty. "So far they made an offer, which we thought was fantastic. Then we made an offer which they thought was fantastic. Now we're both simmering and nothing's happening." Jane has spent 13 years under exclusive contract to the Texas millionaire. She's now of 'a mind not to sign all her services away to him. "I'd like a one-plcture-a-year deal," she said. "That would be enough to give me security. But I could also do some of the exciting ' things that.have been offered me." Security appears to be Important to her. Even though she can draw 5200,000 per picture on loanouts now, she is concerned about how she will lare on her own. She listens eagerly to reports of how such long-time contract stars «s June Allyson, Tyrone Power and Betty Grable have been doing since they became free lancers. If Jane does decide to go her own way, she couldn't have picked a better time for it. She has her biggest hit in the current film purporting to show that gents prefer blondes. There's another girl in it, but her name slips my mind. "Yes, I Jilted the picture." said Jane, who is inclined to be intensely critical of her own work.'"It was the first time I played Jane Russell, Until now I've always had to play someone else in pictures. In 'Paleface,' I played Bob Waterfield. Family Approval "The proof of the picture is in the reaction of my family. My brothers- and Bisters and cousins would go to my pictures and come out saying 'When are you going to make « real movie?' This last one | wifs the first they ever liked." Even though -she thinks she played the role as her athlete husband, "Paleface" was the first picture to get Jane's career off the ground. Until then, her fame rested mostly on the cheesecake photos emanating from her first film, "The Outlaw." I asked her if she wished her career had moved more swiftly. "Certainly," she replied. "I should have done in my first seven years what I have done in my last six. Then the last six years should have been what I hope to do in the next six. But that's the way Hughes operates—slowly and by degrees. "No, I have no regrets about havins been under contract to him this long. You can't beat the old man when it conies to publicity. He can take somebody and keep them alive for five years, even though they never make a picture. I know, because it happened to me." Jane Is finishing up "The French Line," which she likes as much as any picture she has made for Hughes. Her next picture is KUP- posed to be "The Silver Horde" with John Wayne, but she isn't saying yes or no until she sees the script. Thst's the new, independent Jane Russell.

"We are giving the American people nl! the elements of information they really need" about the atomic energy program. Zuckert, appearing last night on an MBS radio program, said he docs not share the view often expressed that more atomic information should be made available. To disclose more than at present, he said, would be of more help to a potential enemy than to the American people. Specifically, he said he disagrees with former AEC Chairman Gordon Dean, who has said Americans should know more about the U- S. atomic program and about Soviet atomic capabilities. "The essential thing for the man in the street to know," Zuckert said, "is that there are weapons available to an enemy which could create mass production to our cities. We have said this time nnd again."

(/Pi — Children have discovered a new pastime. It's finding buried pipes with homemade "divining rods" made from coat hangers. They hold two coat hanger rods in front of them and walk slowly around their home.
