In December of 1944, my tearoom friend—the scientist from Warsaw—was cattle-carred to this concentration camp and assigned to a barrack occupied almost ex- cluslvely by captured Russian soldiers. He was asked the usual questions, and when the Russians found the newcomer was a Pole, they quickly let him know that the fraternity of races as preached by Moscow was confined to Kremlin publicity handouts. And when he further admitted he had never Joined the Party—not tor any big Ideological reason, but simply because he was a scientist and had no Interest In politics— the Red army men decided he was when the commandant asked him to examine the disk, his plan wag I to palm the one with the white clr- cle and substitute his own, so that either would mean death to the | non-Party man. For a long moment, the scientist looked up at tbt tlat ceiling of tbe bunk above bint. "Thank you," bt finally taid to bit Mend. •7 think I'll be able to manage." Next morning when his name • was caned, he saw the "trustee": palm the white-circled disk and substitute another. But he pre-j tended not to notice, and when the commandant held out his hat he smiled and selected a disk. "White or black," he said, "I'm going to have one good meal In this miserable camp." And before the officer could stop him, he popped the bit of leather Into his mouth and swallowed. The SS man frowned. "Crazy. Pole," he said, "what good will that do? There Is still a disk left In the hat If It Is black, you pickad the white; If it la white, you picked the black." --—•'ji vjvca *-ny; ine /\r- Bcckers, Buffalo Center; the , - Beckers, the August Melzes, the Hugo Melzes, the George En- ftfr n n- a i?^ the Y ance Leste rs.

March 10, 1950 Jpper Des Moines Behind The Movie Sets WITH BUDDY MASON Let's go visiting today. We'l start off by saying, "Good morning! ', to Tiny Carter. Tiny is the large, economy-size giant who guards the back gate of Motion Picture Center. Tiny's job is to keep all unauthorized persons from getting on the lot. Some day we'll do a full column about the various dodges he has encountered — and foiled! One day a group of studio workmen were rolling a huge ship's boiler through the back gate and onto the lot. Tiny watched for a moment, then walked over and plucked a man in overalls from the grunting group. V/hen I asked big Tiny how he identified the ingenious gate crasher he smiled expansively and answered: "Salesmen may wear well-shined, expensive shoes with dirty overalls, but laborers don't." • • • We leave Tiny and drop in on Stage No. 3 where Jimmy Kern I is rehearsing Bob Young and Betsy Drake, preparatory to shooting a scene for "Here Lies Love." Jimmy is all smiles. Bob and Betsy are letter-perfect in their lines. This saves much time and many retakes. With production time running into thousands at dollars per hour, he can appreciate having a cast that stays at home studying lines at night. Maurice Suess, producer's assistant, is positively beaming. He's the man who has to explain to the front office why a picture is behind schedule, or over the budget. the far end of the stage workmen are replacing the stage flooring over the outlet tank. This tank connects with the city drainage system. Our little mountain endec here. Built for "The Cariboo Trail", n young fortune was spent to match a Colorado location where long- shots were filmed. However, the real location proved to be too inaccessible to pack-in heavy lighting equipment needed for good' closeup photography. So, they simply built a section of forest on two stages to match the real location. * « » On our way out of the lot. we run into Tom Alfred, veteran publicist. Tom has his troubles today. He recently spent two weary months working on publicity for a minor epic. After completing a brilliant campaign to exploit the picture, Tom has just received word that the powers- that-be have decided to change the title. He might as well have- spent all that time publicizing liver pills. Perhaps it's little things like this which drive public relations mtYi back to their old newspaper jobs.
