THE DAILY MAIL, HAGERSTOWN, MD. ( FRIDAY, AUGUST 11, 1939. SEVEN NUDISM WORKS FROM TOP TO TOE, , BUT TOP AND TOE NEED CLOTHING What They're Wearing in Nudist Camps By SAM JACKSON j SOQTJEL, Cal., Aug. 11 There'* only one thing about the (convention to be held here August 12-14 that would strike you aa odd •^-nobody will be wearing clothes. It will be a meeting of the Ameri- fcaa Sunbathing Association, which hag for Its object the fostering of that "commonplace, normal and delightful way of living — social nudism." No clothing won't be strictly true, however. Most nudists still have to wear shoes; it's the rare one .•whose feet are so tough he can travel barefoot And. the women make a concession to the world of normalcy: When the sun is very bright they guard their facials by wearing big straw hats. A special feature of this convention will be an exhibition of members' hobbies: photographs, movies, paintings, pottery, wrought Iron and examples of such collectors' items as cactuses and coins. "It seems natural that nudism «,nd such interests should go together," nald the exhibit'* chairman. "Those who step forth without clothing gain a spiritual freedom from self gratification by means of money display, such as in clothes and automobiles. "This fit* in naturally with creative forms of self expression." By the Hundreds Nearly all the 40 camps, in many parts of the ,TJnited States, which are members of the association, will be represented. Officers say attendance will run into the hundreds, but will not reach a thousand. Presiding will be portly Louis P. Clark, successful manufacturer, ordained minister, and now in his retired life the head of American nudists. Host camp is the Sun Tanners, a thriving organization- serving the San Francisco Bay area. It has a large, heavily wooded acreage at the end of a road in tbe Santa Cruz mountains, with large dining and social halls, a swimming pool, tennis and badminton courts and many cabins. James F. Curl is manager. All persons in the camp are addressed by their first .names, but this does not imply undue familiarity. The rule is intended merely to protect anyone who may prefer not to link nudism and his full name. Actually, officers say, very few members are touchy on the subject. TO CONTROL Stars Of Stage And Screen Argue Case Before Union Council. Atlantic City, N. J., Aug. 11 (jp). —Stars of stage and screen argued before the American Federation of Labor's Executive Council here to keep full union control of acting within actors' ranks, with a strike their threat of an alternative. Unable to complete the hearing despite a night session, the council announced it would make known its decision at 1 P. M. (Eastern Standard Time) today. The course of the American Federation of Actors, embracing vaudeville, night club and circus performers, will depend on the nine council members' decision. A subsidiary of the Associated Actors and Artists of America until expelled, the AFA holds a charter from the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employes, the "stagehands" union. In a speech for delivery before th© council, Frank Gillmore, president of the 4-A, described the stagehands' adoption of the vaudeville actors as a "bare-faced raid," and "demanded" that the IATSE be ordered to drop the AFA. Those favoring the stand taken by the 4-A were reported unofficially to have presented their side- first in closed conference. Sophie Tucker, president of the AFA, Harry Richman, vice president and Ralph Whitehead, executive secretary, followed, as did representatives of the stagehands' j union. In the delegations were Tallulah Bankhead, Jean Muir, Peggy Wood Lawrence Tibbett, Edward Arnold Binnie Barnes, Wayne Morris, Mischa Auer, Henry Hull, Lucille Gleason, Larry Steers, Frederick March, Miriam Hopkins and Ralph Morgan. t Fresh Blueberry Waffles for Dessert ST.
