Though it is inevitable that "Night And Day" must recall that other Warner hit, "Rhapsody In Blue" since both films fall into the category of musical biography, there the similarity ceases, as "Night And Day" makes a successful stand on its own merits, Of which there are rrwny, including a basic story line that differs widely from the success story of George Gershwin.

Strangely enough, though Porter's background spoke lavishly of comfort, education and gracious living, the composer struggled for years to escape it— perhaps just because it .was comfortable and too easy for his limitless energies; and certainly because he rebelled against the decision' of his wealthy grandfather (portrayed by Henry Stephenson) to make the young Yale graduate a lawyer. The sinking of the Lusitania made the opening night of Porter's first Broadway show its closing night, too. The First World War interrupted his romance with Linda Lee (Alexis Smith), His successful career came perilously close to disrupting his eventual marriage to her.

It's too, early to tell yet, but two of the styles worn by the actresses in the picture, which stars William Powell in the male lead and has a background of the roaring '20's, have stirred up an exciting controversy after preview and first run screenings of the new film. There seems to be *a sharp division of opinion about the two ex- 1918 fads featured in the movie. One, worn by Miss Williams, is -a beige wool broadcloth suit with a yoke outlined In gold stitching, and a scalloped ankle-length skirt. The other is a revival of a twcnty- cight-ycar-old hairdo featuring top- sangs and loose back and side curls, and, needless to say, look- ng very becoming on Miss Lans- Dury. If the style-makers accede to public interest, as they usually do, a couple of long-obsolete feminine adornments may again prove that styles, like songs or story plots, never change a great deal; they only go in cycles.

The informant said it was "very passible" that this country would resort to diplomatic measures jn connection with the reports of Russian armament making in Germany.

Ridgway also charged that many who voted for McMath had not compiled with the residence clause of the law, that McMath's G.

Poll taxes in question arc be lieved to be those paid by forme Cost of Coal, Oranges Going Up Says OPA By MARVIN L. ARROWSMITH Washington, Aug. 22 —(/I 1 ) — The OPA today hiked price ceilings on coal and signalled for a boost on oranges. On top of this ,an agency official reported retail lamb prices ,will be higher than June 30 ceilings jwhcn meat controls are restored Sept. 9. The lamb prices will average at least five cents more a pound than on June 30, the official told a reporter, saying the increase is necessary because OPA and the agriculture department decided against revival of the Iamb subsidy. This totaled $36,000,000 in fiscal 940. OPA officials said subsidy payment on cattle and hogs will be evivcd at the June 29 rate, as uthoritcd by the price dccontro' ioard.

Judge Witt, in whose court the suits were filed, disqualified himself and announced that Circuit Judge Lawrence Autcn of Little Rock had consented to preside at the trial. McMath issued a statement saying that the "McLaughlin (Mayor Leo P. McLaughlin of Hot Springs) administration challenges and seeks to disenfranchise every veteran discharged (rom the service since Oct. 1, 1945." His statement pointed out that lidgway's contest was based chiefly upon the contention that all poll tax receipts issued since Oct. 1, 1945 are void. "I believe that no court in the and will uphold such a conlcn ion," he said. "The only citizens authorized under the laws of Arkansas to purchase poll tax receipts after the deadline arc veterans of World War II," McMath slated. But even while the parade ot price increases continued, OPA went ahead with an assignment it rarely handles any more — a price cut. Porter reaffirmed at a news conference that the new meat ceilings which the price decontrol board ordered restored will be al or near June 30 figures. In ordering them back, the board, said meat prices had climbed from 20 to 80 per cent uflcr controls lapsed June 30. Porter also announced - <t price increase of seven cents a hundred to "throw the book" al black mar- keteers. "There is no substantial basis," he declared, "for reports that we are going back to widespread black markets. •" "I hope packers will devote a ibstantlal part of their energy to Taking rccontrol work — a.t least s much as they devoted to try- ng to get rid ot control."

The drive to prevent black mar- <ets will begin as soon as controls go back on producer sales. Porter said that by next month OPA plans o have 2,500 investigators—"twice TS many as we ever had before"— checking on meat transactions. The price chief commended the decontrol board for a "thoroughly competent" job, but he said: "I would have to be less than candid if I did not express disappointment that the board was unable to find a basis for rccontrol of dairy products." Predicting that "we will be in trouble on the dairy situation this fall," Porter said OPA will recommend rcstortion of ceilings if prices on such items as milk and buHor climb :'urlhcr. OPA attributed the coal prices increases to a provision of the nc\y lasv which requires that dealer profit margins be no" less than they were last March 31.

We note lhal in recent days such dissimilar persons as the Soviel journalist Ilya Ehrenburg and Father Divine have been taking pol-shols al Ihe reporters and their bosses. But we arc more interested today in the complaint of Mr. H. Hynd, parlia mcnlary secretary to Britain's Firsl percentage. Lord of the Admiralty. Mr. Hynd thinks that newsmen are making things unduly hard for t^p British government. "We find ill the press," he says, "not only rather qucqr .reports, as sometimes happens, but also little-bits slipped in here and there—sometimes ir a humorist column—all lltllc digs at the Labor government." Mr. Hyud would, probably chide us for lifting 'these "little bits 1 ' from the body of the speech tha contained them, but they seem 16 contain the gist of his complaint And if we were one of the Labor government's many British sup porters, we should be a tittle dis Ifty'bod if we thought that this conl plaint represented a widespreac official feeling. For Mr. Hynd's objection seem jf not of discouragement. That fool- to betoken a feeling of uncertainty, ing is often revealed in an acute scnsitivily to criticism and a susceptibility lo severe bruises at the impact of Ihe Icasl unkind word. One might be led to believe that since Mr. Hynd considers the Labor government's political cause to be just, he expects the press to maintain an allilude of dcdicalcd yjjvcrence unmarrcd by levity or fault-finding. Impatience with criticism is natural and usual. But the strong politician, sure of popular support of his goals and methods, can afford to ignore the petty fault-finding and answer his critics sharply on major issues.

Beginning Sept. 1 millers Will be allowed to discontinue the manufacture ot "dark" flour, Secretary of Agriculture Anderson announced last night. Since March 1 they have been required to convert 30 nercont of the wheat kernel into flour. Next month they may return to the ;ior- irial 72 percent extraction rate. A little time will be required to use up present stocks of dark flour and move Ihe while flour into distribution channels. These cased restrictions were ' made possible, Anderson said, by this year's record crops of wheat and corn and by action of the Price Decontrol Board in re-establishing ceilings on meat animals. Meal ceilings arc expcclcd lo prevent "excessive" feeding of grain, particularly wheat, to livestock. The improved grain supply outlook also made il possible, the secretary announced, to increase this country's grain export , goal or the 1940-47 marketing year rom 250,000,000 bushels of wheat ind flour lo a "probable total" of 00,000,000 bushels of all grains ind grain products. This compares with 417,000,000 nishcls exported lo shortage areas ibroad during Ihc pasl season. While millers will be allowed lo •cturn to white flour, they still must limit domestic distribution to 87 percent of the quantity distributed in the corresponding months :ast year. Food manufacturers also ivill still be limited lo the same Liquor distillers will be allotted 20 percent — or 500,000 bushes —more grain in September than in August.

Klan Charter in California Is Revoked By KATHERINE PINKHAM San Francisco, Aug. 2 4— (/I 1 )— Superior Judge Alfred A.

Trial evidence was inclusive as lo how recently or widely this material had been used. The court decree did not oullaw the Klan in California. Ken suit to revoke its charter was calculated to cripple organizing momentum. After the first world war the Klan rolled up a state membership of 100,000 within a few months, collected a lidy treasury with $10 init iation fees and was soon pulling heavy pressure on courls and prosecutors. It died down after the na- lional organization was disbandcc in 1944.

The Yugoslavia we have been, In discussing the possible reason seeing these past few days isn't the old Yugoslavia we used to know—the gallant little friend beside whom we fought in two world Of course the Yugoslavs always have been two-fisted fellows in defending their rights, but it's •igainst their nature to bread the bond of friendship once given. I've toured their fine country—visited 'heir trim farm-houses and partaken of the honey and water preferred as a token of hospitality—admired their Yankee sewing machines which provided a prfdeful link with the Great Uncle Sam — discussed harvest and cattle with iheir thrifty farmers. And always ;t was the same—cordial friendliness. That was the old Yugoslavia. But now, as this column remarked Darlicr in the week, a strange and nostilc clement has been injected Into the country. One cannot believe that the loyal ,md friendly nature of the average '/ugoslav has been changed overnight. Indeed, that thought is supported by the statement made yesterday by Captain William Crom- oic, of East Longmcadow, Mass., pilot of the U. S. Army transport i'orcod down over Yugoslavia a fortnight ago by gunfire from Yugoslav fighter planes. The crew and passengers of the transport were assigned a Yugoslav captain laired showman yesterday by Su- erior Judge Joe E.

So Ihe old spirit of friendliness still lives in Yugoslavia—perhaps in the majority of heats. However, Ihe country is in the grip of a totalitarian dictatorship which has proclaimed a new political code o regimentation. Under that code the individual acts as the govcrnmen decrees. He isn't supposed to think but only to obey. The dictatorship ordered hostile demonstrations against unarmec American transport planes. Som for Marshal Tito's hostility, our column previously pointed out that Yugoslavia is very much in Moscow's pocket. It struck me that al least one reason lor the Yugoslav chief's aclion was to impress on the United Stales and other west crn allies that outside interference wasn't welcomed in the grca Slayoc bloc of which Yugoslavia is an important unit. We can take that thought a step further. No matter what may be the final word regarding the as sault on Uncle Sam, and the Amcr ican ultimatum to Tito, this much we can say now: Marshal Tito has painted wit! the flaming red of danger the Jin of demarcation between the Rus sian dominated 'bloc of 'easten uropc and . the western Do nocracies. Close observer's knew f course, that this division cxis d—that two definite divisions ha grown out of the great post - wa ealipnment of power—but a lo of folk have been living in the vishtul 'thought that the barrier night be lowered.

Its 48-hour ultimatum to Yugoslavia had demanded, technically, only the release of the occupants of the two planes who were still alive. The Yugosavs already have released all but one of the men aboard the first American plane downed. A Turkish captain, seriously wounded in the attack, remained behind when seven Americans and two Hungarians were set free. Technically, that would seem to comply with the wording of the ultimatum.
