Social standing in most communities depends on two factors: How much money you have, and how much you may inherit. Horatio Alger proved long ago that anyone with a lot of pluck. luck and hard work could become rich and famous. But this path to glory is too stern drearv for most of us. and wealth the hard way often become embittered and stingy' On the other hand, inheriting money is no easy way to social success either.

So she is joing back this week to the tur- sulent. rebel-infested country of the Congo. Ella Haller of Detroit says she hopes to re-establish the orphanage from which she twice was rescued by government loops ahead of slaughter-bent Congolese rebels, once in 1960 and again in 1964. Sailing with her from New York Friday will be her daugh- :er, Geneva Grace. 36, who was x>m in the Congo, and adopted Congolese twin sons, Beraie and Gary. 12. Also going will be yet to be adopted 5-year-old Rachel. She and the twins were the only orphans out of 83 Mrs. Haller could gather as rebels poured out of the forests of Kwilu Province in January 1964. "I've just got to go," said Mrs. Haller. "My orphans are writing and asking for help. They have no food, no shelter. We're going back to our family and home." To Mrs. Haller, the Congo has been hom e since 1926. when she went there as the wife of the Rev. Archie Haller. He was sent there by the Missionary Church, which ha s headquarters in Fort Wayne, Ind. He died in the Congo in 1942. She is going back under sponsorship of World Wide Missions of Altadena, Calif., but she has raised funds for her family's passage and 26 barrels of used clothing in drabs and bits from church women's groups which she told about her work — and hopes. iting any.

And this solidity and compound mass: with heated visage, as against the doom, Is thought-sick at the act." Or like this? "Heaven's face does blush. And this great mass, this solid globe of earth. With gloom-struck visage, as if doomsday's here. Is thought-sick at the act." If you favor clearer, more understandable Shakespeare, then you have found a champion in the famed director Rouben Mamoulian. He is the editor of a U.S. Steel Ups Product Prices PITTSBURGH (AP) — U.S. Steel Corp. has raised prices on certain products, reduced some prices and left others open to negotiation with buyers. The President's Council of Economic Advisers gave tacit approval and estimated the changes made Monday would amount to an increase of two- tenths of one per cent in the price of steel. The council said the changes would contribute to economic stability. U.S. Steel said it increased prices on some nails, staples and brads by J6 to $15 per ton and raised by $1 to 56 per ton extra costs on some carbon, high-strength and alloy plates. Reductions on selected rods amounted to 56.50 a ton, while some carbon sheets dropped by JS2 to 525 a ton in price. Gardner Ackley. chairman of the President's Council, said the reduction of some items should "help meet foreign competition and thus improve our balance of payments position.'' Califormans Baffled OJAI. Calif. (AP) — Someone or something keeps blowing out the lights in Conrad Meach's home — x'iolently. In neighbors* homes the lights burn steadily, without even a flicker. Meach's light bulbs explode. Repairmen are baffled. Engineers tested some light bulbs but couldn't make them explode even after duplicating the circumstances at Meach's home. Meach's wife. Mary, first tried taping hair nets around the bulbs to prevent flying fragments. Now, she just doesn't use the ceiling fixtures any- aew version of "Hamlet" •Boobs - Merrill, $5), which he hopes will help restore the Bard to the ordinary people for whom he wrote. The Armenian-bora Mamoulian writes of seeing "Hamlet" performed and reading it in Armenian , Russian and French as a youth. "When I began to learo English, the greatest thrill I looked forward to was to read (Shakespeare) in the original," he recalls. "This I did, but with a shocking result: I couldn't understand half of it." Many a plodding high school student has discovered the same thing. For the benefit of them and others seeking the joys of intimacy with Shakespeare. Mamoulian devoted years in developing a modern text. He was no indiscriminate hacker of iambics. Long a creative director of plays ("Porgy and Bess." "Oklahoma!") and films ("Golden Boy," "Blood and Sand." "Silk Stockings"). he came to the task with knowledge of stagecraft and a passion, for clarity. He describes the nature of his revisions: Some 2,000 archaic words were modernized-. 100 long or confusing lines rewritten; 510 extraneous lines eliminated; spelling brought up to date; punctuation revised; the play reduced from five to four acts: time intervals, stage directions and ages of characters inserted; some monologues turned into dialogue. \vriat he is trying to do, he emphasized, is to rescue Will from the pedants. He says: "The reading of 'Hamlet.' instead of being the lusty, ealted pleasure it should be, has become a tiring task of study and research.. . ." Mamoulian said at his Beverly Hills home that the reception to the book thus far has been fairly favorable. But then perhaps the Shakespeare fanatics have not yet had time to load their muskets.
