American city dwellers have been moving out of urban centers to the suburbs. But most of them have had to make the long trek downtown every dav to their jobs. Recently, however, increasing numbers have begun to find work closer to their suburban homes. nf pmirsv have hpMi seekine the oDen countrv lor a long time. But in the last few years many major busi ness firms nave-been snuung ineir principal auuumsudine offices out to the green fringe. <3nma efn^iPB rtf New York Citv. the most harassed as semblage of masonry and humanity in the world, reveal this trend quite marKecuy. Onf> nf thp ritv's bi? suburbs. White Plains, took a cen sus which showed that since 1946 the number of its people 'with jobs in New York has dropped 18 per cent. The number of jobs in the White Plains area rose more than 9000 in that period. A year ago a large food firm moved its headquarters .there, adding 1300 jobs. Another similar move out of the hi? citv e-flvft White Plains 1000 more. These are but sam- -ples. Modern, airy, comfortable office structures can be '•found dotting the suburban landscape on au siaes or tne city. For the harassed commuter, crowding: into bus or train TDr niline into his car to ioin a traffic jam every day, this trend must seem a hopeful prospect. He can be forgiven if iie listens to the beckoning voice of the suburban chamber of commerce when it chants : ^~ "Save yourself mental and physical strain caused by ^erve-wracking last-minute dashes to catch a train or bus. . ....When-you work in this area, you sleep later in the ^morning, return home earlier in the evening . . . You'll /feel \better. You'll find contentment in your work." V ' :There can be little doubt that the lure is not deceptive. ^There is something undeniably attractive about escaping the , tyranny of the commuting -schedule, eating instead of gulp- gng breaKiast, rinding tnat trees and work are not incom- «pataoie. V # • • v The exodus of people and business to the country is \making serious problems for the city, naturally. Probably frothing city leaders can do will halt the movement, since (Dasicauy it seems a sensible response to tne intolerable con-^'gestion of our cities. But we cannot take the cities' result-line' plight with light abandon. v_ , Tbe urban center has many advantages or it would -never have lasted as long as it has. It allows close business, fsocial and cultural contacts. Made more spacious than it ♦ now is, freed of today's choking congestion, it surely will go '.on playing a vital role in our national life. Not even the | threat .of nuclear war is likely to bring complete dispersal. , Nevertheless, most Americans 'probably would feel the • trend toward reducing the tangled mass of humanity in our fcity centers is a neaitny one. Tney must" feel so, tor they { are making me irenu. . - , - ■ , ! So They Say l The free world, which far" many iyears was dominated by fear and.

Says Bobby: "In rew York every young actor studies between plays. In Holly- ■ood, between pictures, most of the young actors just play. MARJORIE MAIN is just now confessing that she almost threw the retirement towel a year ago. It took a trip to Europe to change her mind, she told me, when "I realized what Ma Kettle meant to so many people throughout the world. This may sound kind of corny, but everywhere I went in Europe people recognized me. Crowds stood in front of the Savoy- Hotel m London all day waiting for me. People thanked me for giving them pleasure. Porters on trains in Italy and France called me Ma Kettle." As Marjorie sees it: "I think if you can give that much se to people you should make an effort to keep acting, mats uie main thing that keeps me at it now." Not in the Script: The "feeling" of a near-not scene between sev eral hundred perspiring extras for "The Vagabond King" wasn't to Michael curtiz' iiicing. "Cut, cut," yelled the Hungarian director. "Eet's too mechanics. Making movies is Inspiration, too — not just perspiration." Former kid stars Mitzi Green and Jackie Coogan met on the "So This Is Hollywood" telefilm set. Their words weren't new but they were appropriate. Said now bald-headed Coogan: "First time I saw you, Mitzi, you had hair down to your w« "I remember," replied Mitzi, "and you had HAIR." DOROTHY McGUIRE turned down the mother role in the Broad way hit, "The Bad Seed," but she's shedding no tears about it, It wasn't bad guessing on h« part to veto the role that brought Nancy Kelly all kinds of acting awards, but, she told me, a ing that it would be a mistake for me. I decided that it would be ter ribly depressing for me to be in that kind of a play for a long run.' "Three Coins in the Fountain" brought Dorothy more critical val entines than any movie she's done in years, but the role again another one that went against her grain. Her confession: "I didn't like playing the part. I prefer playing characters who are liked and loved by the audience." GLENN FORD has zoomed up into the ranks of prestige actors since "Interrupted Melody" and The Blackboard Jungle. But he asking "What's all the fus about : wnen nis mitt is pumpea by pals. "I haven't changed. I'm same person." Glenn told me the set of "Trial" at MGM.

To me it's being happy and giving your best. Mane Windsor is denying the re- Mrs. Jack Hupp. "I'm going right on acting and Jack wants me to." says Mane. "He gets a kick out of it. He's from an old movie family. He's the son of a silent film star. Earl Rodney, who became a director after he gave up acting." Barbs By HAL COCHRAN A 16-year-old Indiana gnl posed as being 20.

M0P& HE WILL' , iwi^^wauixw// OH HOW i WISH /V l^V^J Ruth Millett The less time you spend with any of these women the happier >ou will be: The woman who thinks men have all the best of it and that women never get a square deal. An hour's conversation with such a woman can make a fairly contented woman unhappy with her lot and resentful of her husband. The gossip. Nothing you hear from a gossip will make you feel better or happier. And after you have left her you will wonder unhappily if you said anything you don't want repeated. The woman who puts a money value on everything, bet such a woman come into \our home and suddenly things look shabby— because ycu are seeing them through her appraising eyes, instead of through your own rose-colored glasses. NEVER TELL WET BLANKET T OUR PLANS The wet blanket. This type of woman can find a flaw in anything you are happy with— and she will take delight 'in pointing it out to yew. Never make the mistake of telling her your plana or ehowmg "Nielc'i another one that's sitting or top of the world unce he started buying U S. Savings Bonds." A Few Types of Women Which Should Be Avoided her anything you are proud of. Tne bossy manager. Unless yi are a very strong character. y< will get help and advice you nev asked for and will have plans made for you that y on never wanted made The "bom-manager" jus! can t let anyone else's life alone. The complamer. No matter how happy you feel when you start talking to a complamer, you are sure to end up by feeling gloomy. The complamer scatters gloom wherever she goes— and the only-way to dodge the gioom is to dodge her. You are almost sure to know some of these women. But the less vou see of them, the happier you will be. What's Right? If a friend of yours appears on television or makes a speech, don't ask him afterward. "Why didn't you snv su< h-and-such''" or say re-gictfully, "I was hoping you would sav this or that." All he really wants to hear is that he did well, with no reservations added. // Youth (Continued from Page 1) Mr. and Mrs. Allen Whit- mer 5.00 Mr. and Mrs. Donald B.

May I present him In WASHINGTON WASHINGTON— ( NE. 1 1— The U. S. budpet could be balanced eas-ly if all the recommendations of the Hoover commission on organize-ion of government weie followed. Not only that— there would also be 1 surplus for the fust time since 1951. And taxes might be cut. These potential sayings aie indicated as the nonpartisan group headed by e.x-Piesident Herbert Hoover passes tne nauway point on the 20 reports it is issuing this year. They will show where government expenses couici oe cut ana now government efficiency could be inci eased. On the first U leports issuer! so lai. net savings on an annual oasn of over a billion and a half dollars have been indicated, bince the lepons sun 10 come Lo\ei mgbei items uf Cvpcui?. the total pos sible savings annually could be well over the three-billion dollar mark. fhe anticipated budget deficit for the government s fiscal year be ginning July 1 is two and a half billion, r or the year ending June 30 •ill be between four and five billion. THE l'OSSIBLE ANNUAL SAVINGS which the Hoover reporte e so far levealed are- Reducing of papeivork, 255 million dollars. Medical services. 293 million. Lending agencies. 200 million. Trans portation, 151 million. Food and clothing pui chases, 340 million. Ware-housing, 2S2 million Two major piwisional savings have also been listed. If the government's employe turnover rate could be reduced from 25 to 20 per cent a ypar, annual savings of 60 million dollars could be The second conditional saving is a little mote complicated. The government— principally Department of Defense— now dedaies surplus about two billion dollars' worth of supplies a >eai In selling these sin pluses, the government gets from five to seven cents on the dollar If the government could inciease this by one cent on each dollar's worth of surplus sold, the increased leturn would be 20 million dollars a year If the leturn could be increased by five cents on the dollar the return to the treasuiy would be 100 million dollais There is a third major field of possible savings known as "one-;hot" economies. This is to distinguish them fiom lecurrmg annual .avmgs. One-shot savings would merely reduce the naional debt. FOR INSTANCE, if the government liqu'dated some of its lending agencies and government corporations and leturned their capital funds to the treasury, some five billion dollars might be recovered. This figure is the total of one-shot savings indicated in the first ten Hoover report recommendations. For the entire 20 reports being issued this year. President Hoover has indicated the total recommended capital fund saving might be seven billion. From this curtailment of government programs there might be further annual reduction of expense Naturally, if the government stopped doing any of its numerous activities, it would reduce expenditures But this would not show on the books as a saving. This recommended curtailment of government activities has put the Hoover commission in more hot water than it has been before. It involves such popular programs as government housing loans, farm loans, rural electrification and telenhone loans and Tennessee Valley Authority activities. Also many business-type enterprises which bureaucrats consider essential. Some of the Hoover recommendations in this field go so far as to be in conflict with expressed Eisenhower administration and Republican platform policies. This has caused the White House and some of the executive departments considerable embarrassment. THE HOOVER COJDIISSION answer to this point is that it was not created to defend anyone's policies. It was set up by law to show where savings might be made and more efficiency achieved. It is bipartisan in make-up and nonpartisan in objectives So far. the first ten Hoover reports have made 221 recommendations. Twenty of them could be carried out by presidential executive order. Eighty-four could be carried out by administrative action in the government agencies. But 117 of the recommendations will require action by congress to change existing law. Mr. Hoover thmk3 nine or ten omnibus bills might cover the field So far only one bill— to reorganize government legal services-has been introduced in congress. Others are in preparations and may be filed soon. Few will be acted on this year. But reorganization act authority has been extended to June 1, 1957.
