X- Movie Theater Business imate 'Extremely Good' By BOB THOMAS AP Movie-Television Writer HOLLYWOOD (AP) - For an industry that was supposed to curl up and die the movie theater business is showing amazing life. Eugene V. Klein, president of the National General Corp. which runs 222 theaters—Fox West Coast—in 16 stales, declares: HEALTH CAPSULES ~| by Miclmi-l A.

The climate has been extremely good for theaters recently.

The i major reason for the increase of | I theater business is that Holly-' I wood has been making pictures i that people want to see. | "Mostly, it I has been good, sophisticated pictures that audi- ! ences can enjoy.

They'll pay $2.50 without com- ; plainjng to see something they want to see. But if they don't want to see it, you can't get them in on passes." Gene Klein is a plain-spoken man with the frame of a pro football fullback and a sense of what the public will buy. That knack is demonstrated in National General's latest statement: earnings in fiscal 1963 at $3,459,600 VS. a loss of $6,605,919 two years ago. The veteran film chain had suffered a series of red-ink years before bouncing into the black in 1962. The change in First Lady Set Her Own Style fortune resulted from a modernization campaign that now has the corporation selling not only movie entertainment but houses, dried figs and hootenanny singers. Among Nation*! General's new enterprises: Concerts, Inc., which produces live attractions, including a season of musicals at Santa Monica Civic Auditorium; Mission Pak, the fruit sellers; theater color-vision, for closed-circuit television; mobile rentals, trailer supplier; and housing and commercial developments in Marin, San Francisco, Orange counties, etc. "But theaters will always be the major portion of our business," said Klein, "We have shut down or sold some and cut the seating capacity in others; some had 3,000-4,000 seats while 950 is a more sensible number today." Stoning of Communist Headquarters Probed JAKARTA, Indonesia, (AP) — Antara news agency said today authroities are investigating the stoning of Communist party headquarters at Banda Ajeh in northern Sumatra Jan. 30. Communist leaders in Banda Ajeh accused counterevola- tionarics and members of banned political partiea of the attack. By PRANCES LEWINE WASHINGTON (AP) - Mrs. Lyndon B. Johnson broke one rose from her bouquet for a girl wh« waited a long time at an airport for a glimpse of her. "Me, too," the First Lady confided to a worker in retraining school who admitted he was nervous at a presentation ceremony. It's part of the emerging pattern of Mrs. Johnson as First Lady. A calypso band, hootenanny, the strains of opera and American theater have been part of her White House entertainment. Mrs. Johnson read draft after draft of her husband's State of the Union speech as it was being put together. She urged daughter Lynda Bird, 19, to transfer from Texas to George Washington University and help out with White House hostess chores. Because she said she knew the value of college friendships, Mrs. Johnson invited Lynda's Texas roommate to come live at the White House, too. While President Johnson fretted over the $4,600 White House electric bill, his wife fell in line with his economy projects. Slw made a point of flying coach fare at a saving of $5.30 on a round-trip to New York City. In the less than three months she has been in the White House, Mrs. Johnson has moved swiftly to set her own style, Like the President, she has been wooing the press, stressing culture and compassion for the pockets of poverty in America and never missing an opportunity to make friends on the social circuit. Mrs. Johnson it under - play ing fashions, up - grading the arts, and has joined the President in opening up the White House as it hasn't been since the days of Harry S. Truman and Franklin D. Roosevelt. The popular refurbishing of the White House, done by Mrs. John F. Kennedy and her fine arts committees, was to be continued, the Johnsons promised. Mrs. Johnson, too, wants to keep the White House as "the i best face of America," a 1 spokesman for the First. Lady : said. Here is * thumbnail took at' the first lady: Partnership: Mrs. Johnson, busy backer-tip of her husband, will take on more and more White House greeting chores, j enlisting her daughters and Lyn- i da's schoolmate, pretty Warrie Lynn Smith of San Antonio, Tex. She'll attend party fund-raising i , Today in History dinners, go along on presidential trips, keep trying to get the President to let un a little on long work schedules. On her own: She'll spotlight people from all walks of life; continue once-a-month luncheons featuring women of achievement; make some key speeches, but not many, around the country. Press: Mrs. Johnson has known many Washington report- I ekes Resigns After Dispute with Truman By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS i Today is Thursday, Feb. 13, ,1964. There are 322 days left in •the year. Today's highlight in history: On this date in 1776, the first open proposal in the Second Continental Congress for Amer- iican independence was made by j James Wilson. His recommendation for political separation ; from England was received ] coldly, although two months later North Carolina instructed its delegate,? to vote for independence. Other colonies quick[ ly followed suit. On this daft; In 1633, Italian astronomer Galileo arrived in Rome where i he was detained by the inquisi- jtion. 1 In 182G, national temperance reform began with the organi- sation In Boston of the Ameri- ican Society for the Promotion of Temperance. In 1920, the Council of the Tiny Tobacco Seeds LOUISVILLE. Ky. (AP) - A package of tobacco seeds the size of a package of cigaretes could keep you in smokes a long time. There are about 450,000 seeds to the ounce. Two teaspoons full will set an acre of tobacco. League of Nations recognized ! ' the perpetual neutrality of Switzerland and guaranteed the inviolability of its territory. In 1943, the Marine Corps j Women's Reserve was established. In 1946. Harold Ickes resigned i as secretary of the interior in a dispute with Presdent Harry ,'S. Truman over the appointment of Edwin Paulcy to be undersecretary of the Navy. i Ten years ago — Egypt said that unless the United .States hacked its stand against Britain in the Suez Canal dispute it would not cooperate with the United States on any issue.

She'll continue to be accessible, aides say, but doesn't plan any informal press conferences and will strictly limit interviews. With veteran newspaperwoman, Elizabeth Carpenter, a Texan, as her staff director-press secretary, much family news is made available. Social: An active entertaining calendar continues at the White House. The Johnsons, warm and friendly and glad to shake hands, Invited all the senators to informal dinners recently and now are in the midst of a series of six receptions for congressmen. They have brought back the receiving line the Kennedys eliminated in favor of just mingling. The Johnsons mingle, too, the President kisses old friends, and Mrs. Johnson, after 26 years in Washington, remembers many who come by for a handshake. Entertainment: Will continue in the Kennedy pattern, with innovations like the combination of opera and hootenanny at the formal dinner honoring Italian President Segni. Privacy: The new First Lady, like many before her, would like at least some privacy. Camp David weekends provide this for the Johnsons as they did for other presidential families. Mrs. Johnson has appealed to the press not to trail her on private missions and asks the right at times "to operate as a private citizen." DO YOU WANT SOFT WATER?
