Cheesecake Hex Oyer For Jane Russell By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK 10 —Many young •etresses who go to Hollywood be- edme trapped by "the cheesecake curse." They never graduate above the] leg-and bosom publicity photos put out by their studios to build up public interest. They become caught on a cheesecake treadmill, and go no farther. Jane Russell, who pioneered in making the three-foot tape measure obsolete, feels now" that at long last she has busted that hex forever. "People used to expect me to come in with three naked men thrown over my shoulder," recalled Miss Russell, who looks like a strapping, tall • stemmed American beauty rose. A Veteran This happened because of heri first picture, "The Outlaw" (madej when Marilyn Monroe was in high' school and Jaynp Mansfield was! still playing jacks). The camera' seemed intent on proving that | Miss Russell's heaving chest] qualified her more for deep sea pearl diving then acting. "When I met women at a par-} ty," said Jane. "They'd talk to me for a while and then say in real surprise, 'Why, my dear, you're a lady!' This doesn't happen any more —and for this I'm grateful. There have been so many blasts against cheesecake art that now I'm allowed to be me." "Me"—as Jane sees herself—is a normal, wholesome young career actress happily married to Robert Waterfield, a former pro football star. And she is the proud mother of three adopted children. Head Film Firm She and Bob head their own film production firm and share a joint enthusiasm for WAIF, an international adoption agency which Miss Russell founded in 1954. "So far WAIF has found new homes for more than 4,000 children from 18 countries at a cost of about $500 >a child," she said. "Not all have been brought to America, but most have—because the demand is here. We have thousands of people here who want to adopt children. "We could bring many more children over if Congress would change the immigration laws and we had more funds." Turning to her professional problems, Jane said she and her husband "read and read till our eyeballs fall out" looking for good scripts. Think of Market "The real problem is to find something you lik^ and are proud of— and the public will like too. But when you've got kids to raise and send through college, you do have to think of the market. "You can spend a lot of money making an artistic picture, then it wind up like a dead fish on the highway." Jane has just completed her 17th film. It 's about two would - be criminals who kidnap a glamorous movie star, who in turn ends UP by falling in love with one of Race Among Metals Is Altering Look of Things By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK (fc-Dull days in the metals trades right now are quickening the competition to cap- BORED "COED" • . . Two- month-old Wan H y a n g Jin seems to find college life a hit boring as she accompanies her mother to class at Kent State University of Kent, Ohio. Mrs. Jin, whose husband is a political science major at the university, was caught without a baby sitter so she took the youngster along when she had to do some catchup work on her architectural drawing course. Her parents, both from Seoul, Korea, expect to return home when Mr. Jin completes his studies. her captors—just a nice, crazy mixed-up kidnaper. The title of the film is, "The Fuzzy Pink Nightgown." Hollywood moral: If a girl escaped the cheesecake trap herself, who cares if they put it in the title? ture new markets. And this could benefit all the rest of us. This is not only because competition holds prices down but because the research boys are hot on the scent of new products and new processes. They know they'd better be, or else. Already the race among the metals is changing the look of things. Strange new office and factory buildings are rising. Their sides are clad in aluminum, steel, copper, zinc, nickle, tin—alone or in combination. Home Construction Changes in home construction are getting beyond the merely talking stage. The use of metal in frames, sidings, doors, windows, awnings grows. Auto makers try . new metal combinations, both inside and outside their new models and talk of more changes to come. Metals have pushed into the apparel field at the high fashion level and are an increasing factor in home furnishings and decoration. The big post Korean War bo-; nanza when metals were in short! supply and sellers were courted 1 by buyers has come to a halt for the time being. Competition Narrows For example, those great competitors, copper and aluminum, are now within kissing distance in price. Copper at, just over 28 cents a pound and aluminum at 26 cents a pound have to fight for markets. New alloys ar"e sure to play an increasing role in the coming missile and super-jet age, where aluminum fears it is slipping, unless it can pierce the heat barrier. Aluminum is talking big of muscling in on the lucrative can industry, where some 40 bilHon cans are sold for IVi billion dollars every year. Almost every field that metals serve are alive with research scientists thinking up new marvels for tomorrow. Predict Moil Rote Boost to Pass in House By MARTHA COLE WASHINGTON i* - Leaders of both parties predicted House passage today of a bill to raise mailing charges, but a fight was in prospect over a 4-cent .letter stamp. Both Representatives McCormack (D-Mass), the majority and minority leaders, told newsmen they expect the House to approve the postal rate increases asked by President Eisenhower to help offset a postal operating deficit: Expects Approval Martin specifically said he expects approval of a raise from 3 Co 4 cents for mailing a letter. This is the bill's principal money- raising feature. Neither forecast what would happen to the measure in the Senate. Martin was asked about reports the Senate might tie the postal rate bill into another measure which would raise the pay of postal workers. He said he didn't know whether that might be done, but predicted Eisenhower would veto such a combined measure. The House has voted pay increases for postal and other government workers. The Senate has not yet acted. There has been speculation that passage of a postal rate increase as well as the pay raise measures might make il easier to override an expected veto of the pay raise legislation. Eisenhower has opposed any general pay increase for government employes as potentially inflationary. Increase Costs The rate bill would raise immediately the rates on first-class letter and air mail, and provide graduated increases on second- class (newspapers and magazines) and third-class (advertising matter) mailing costs. In all, the increases would bring, by 1960, an estimated 527^ million dollars a year in added postal revenues. The Post Office Department has estimated postal revenues now are [Times. Herald,.

The lowan was AD2 W. K. Wyatt. Lake of Three Fires, Bedford County. A spokesman said the plane's port engine apparently failed just after takeoff from Barbers Point Naval Air Station.

Newschart above shows the new and old down payments required on home mortgage loans insured by the Federal Housing Administration. In a twin move, designed to spur home buying, FHA cut minimum down payments almost in half and raised the interest rates on FHA loans from 5 to 5'<$ per cent. i running about 651 million dollars I less than it costs to run the serv- | ice. ' The department estimated the j first-class increases would bring in $365,800,000 in additional revenue. They include raising first- class letters from 3 to 4 cents an ounce, air mail letters from 6 to 7 cents an ounce, air mail cards | from 4 to 5 cents, and post cards j and drop letters from 2 to 3 cents. ! A drop letter is one mailed in a post .office for delivery to a box in that office. One Killed, 2 Injured in Rock, Roll Show Battle ST. LOUIS (*-Four wild shots were fired during a noisy rock 'n' roll show at Kiel Auditorium Monday night and one man was killed and two were wounded before an audience of 5,500.

Boy Suffocated In Soybean Bin MASON CITY (JB — Rodney Thoen, 9, son of Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Thoen who farm near Kensett, died Monday when he apparently suffocated in a soybean bin. Rodney and his sister, Patty, 10, were playing in a bin at the neighboring Truman Hogan farm. Dwight. Crum, a Northwood trucker, rushed tc the bin when he heard Patty shouting. He said pressure from the beans being taken from the bottom of the bin had pulled her in up to her neck. She was not injured. Rodney, found buried under about three feet of beans, was dead on arrival at a hospital here. From Red Is Unlike DES MOINES MV -Farmers,"ill" Communist countries have e "long way to go" before they -vcatt^ro?/ duce pork as cheaply as farriers' in the United States, a Des'Moftfcs ; man reports. »--</ ."j Wilbur Plager, secretary of'ithi' 4 Iowa Swime Producers' Assn.,, made the remark Monday upon,' his return from a month-long fatth inspection tour behind the Iron Curtain. The trip included study of. hog- production and marketing iH Po- \ land, Czechoslovakia and Russia., Plager said the Communist' regimes hold down their farmers to"; the living and working standards of feudal serfs but the pork they produce still is more expensive- than that produced by American farmers. "Their costs are high despite the low pay scales because they have so many people working at it," he said. ••<',:•,• Plager was tour leader for-18 American swine producers',' feed dealers and farm extension workers. The tour was sponsored 'by the National Hog Farmer, Grundy Center, official publication' of'•• the National Swin Growers Council. Plager estimated three-fourths of the grain in Poland is cut with scythes. "We drove two days and saw only one tractor in the fields," he said. In Russia, he said, the farmer "doesn't need a one-car garage, let alone a two-car garage. I npver saw a single automobile on a Russian farm.", Iowans who made the tour with Plager were Dean Myers, Eagle Grove; Clinton Cooper, Hartley; Albert Larson, Ayrshire, L. G.

Syria Accuses U.S. of Plot to Overthrow Regime DAMASCUS, Syria Syria accused the United States Tuesday of plotting to overthrow President I Shnkri Kuwatly's government. The ' United States Embassy here quickly labelled the charge a "complete ; fabrication." ; An official government state, ment said the United States indi- | caled willingness to pay Syria be: tween 300 and 400 million dollars : in aid if a new government would | make peace with Israel. ! The embassy issued this state; ment: "The U.S. Embassy has noted ' the broadcast of the Syrian Broadcasting System and press reports ] describing an alleged plot against ' the Syrian government.
