Tonia Velio Tito # s Answer To Marilyn By JAMES BACON :! (For Bob Thomas) HOLLYWOOD 1*1 - Meet Tanla Velia—the Iron Curtain's answer to Marilyn Monroe. Tenia, a 22-year-old brown-eyed blonde beauty, is only two yean removed from Marshall Tito's'Yu­ goslavia. Endowed with all the physical assets that made Monroe famous, Tanla makes a statement that could send every red-blooded American male to that Iron Curtain country. •* "In Yugoslavia," she Insists, "I Was considered very ugly." A Section Hand Of course that was a few years ago, when she was a railroad section hand. v "It's very difficult for a girl to be pretty while swinging a pick and shovel," she admits. She explains that in Yugoslavia vacationing high school students often are put on work gangs. "It's hard for me to convince American people that I once helped build a railroad," she laughs. She soon decided that there were easier ways of making a liv- -ing. So, in a manner of speaking, she swam her way to America. "In Yugoslavia, the national heroes are the athletes—so I became a swimmer," she said. She became so proficient at the aquatic sport that she made the, 1952 Yugoslav Olympic team. "The team did not go to the Helsinki games," she said, "because once before another similar team left the country and didn't return." However, the team did go to Austria in 1955. The rest of the team returned home — but not Tania. Aunt in U.S. She was able to get to the American zone and convince officials there that she was a political immigrant.

Asked if she had ever met Tito, she said yes—"Just once. And I found him a very charming man." Tania, who nad been an actress in her native country, made her living around New York singing in night clubs. She came to Hollywood only two months ago and looked up a magazine photographer named Eddie Rocco. The studio now has her under option and is giving her voice and acting lessons in an effort to cut her accent. * There was one other link with Monroe—in the east she once dat- j .ed Joe DiMaggio for two weeks.

(AP) - Th* unfolding drama of the emotion- packed school desegregation story is being quietly compiled here in a tree-shaded house built in an era when integration was just a dictionary word. Into this grey Victorian brick building flow daily reports on racial developments affecting over 9,000 school districts in 17 Southern and border states and the District ot Columbia. From this voluminous file, a fact - finding agency called the | Southern Education Reporting ] Service is trying to tell the historic; desegregation story straight down j the middle. ' "We're not advocating integration or segregation," says Canadian-born . Don Shoemaker, the service's pipe - smoking executive director. "We just report'the story as objectively a-, we can." Started Early SERS was formed by a group of leading Southern newspaper editors and educators on July 15, 1954, ! just two months after the Supreme Court's decision striking down segregated public schools. Its stated purpose was "to tell the story, factually and objectively, of what happens in education" ; in the wake of the sweeping opin-, ion. Financial aid came in grants! from the Ford Foundation's Fund •; for the Advancement of Education. A headquarters staff gathers and digests information and passes it ! to the public . primarily through. "Southern School News," a 16-, page monthly tabloid. At first the non-profit organization was viewed with suspicion from both sides of the explosive issue. Now $2-a-year subscriptions to the News have been purchased by over 11,000 individual'; or organizations — from the National, Association for the Advancement ol Colored People to the pro-segregation White Citizens Councils. The service has become accepted as the most complete source oh ] the school segregation • integration issue in the nation. Articles from some 60 newspapers are clipped daily and filed away along with over 1,000 magazine stories, copies of legislative acts, speeches and court decisions relating to the subject. Cross - indexed, this "library" forms a Teady reference on various aspects of the issue and resented by these reporters," says Shoemaker, former editor of the Asheville (N.C.) Citizen. "AH were chosen for their ability to report- factually and objectively on one of should provide a valuable source j the great stories of our time, for future historians. 1 Maintains Field Staff Another major source of information is SERS' field staff of 19 paid correspondents. Each holds down a regular news job in his home state and does a'' comprehensive monthly roundup of desegregation development* in his area. These state-by-state roundups are published in the "News." "All shades of opinion are rep- Shoemaker became executive director of this unique operation two years ago, succeeding C. A. (Pete) McKnight, now editor of the Charlotte Observer. Frank Ahlgren, editor of the Memphis Commercial Appeal, is the present chairman of the SERS board, having been elected in March to succeed Virginius Dabney, editor of - the Richmond Times-Dispatch and the board's first chairman. 14 Buildings Burn in Fir At San Raf a SAN RAFAEL, Calif.
