Zelma Kovach, Cor. WS 3KS 55S5 «S5 3? Cecil B. DeMille, said that in Hollywood the announcement thai n person was "asking for release" from his film studio contract was a polite way of saying he had been fired. She added that the further an noiincomenl that the person "will announce future plans" really meant that he had no job in the offing. Miss Swanson was referring specifically to a IftSJ announcement about DeMille, but ihe same phrases are still used— and still translated the same way. | Television has added a number of its own politely evasive! phrases to this show business j lexicon. For instance, when a performer in a series has "asked for release." his time, he says, immediately is consumed with considering the potentials of numerous series—never named — in which he would play the starring role. Comedian Gary Morton, Lucille Ball's husband, oflcn has done Ihe warniup for Lucy's studio audiences. Rul he will make his first appearance on the television program ilsclf on Jan. 27.

They woulln't tell the truth even if you put their paw on the : Bible. ' So it is T don 't know for cer- • tain how old Lady Dottie is. She j was in an advanced slagc of kil- i tcuhood when she adopted our family some years hack, and began to rule us with her iron whims. I would guess she is now in the equivalent of early midle age. Certainly she acts more like a spinster every day. She has developed a bad case of xenophobia, or fear of strangers. Unlike a spinster, she doesn't look under her bed for strange men before retiring. She merely runs and hides under the sofa when a Strang man enters the apartment, and usually stays there until he leaves. Formerly she liked to escort me into the hall when I went to work, and stand there gravely wait no snlil the elevator had whisked me down. Looking at her I sometimes had the erie feeling she was a kind of fur- covered, four-footed wife, silently telling me, "Now work hard all day like a nice little husband earn me a good living, and be sure to get home early." Irately, however. Lady Dottie has declined to go into the hall. She merely folows me to the door, gives a farewell rub against my legs nnd walks away. Apparently she has lost nearly all curiosity about the outside world. Now and then she Is ; stirred to a . tail-lashlng jungle excitement when ctn Impertinent sparrow perches on our windowsill. But for the most part she sems content to be an indoor cat, taking our apartment as her placid place of empire. She used to reach out and bat or bite our daughter, Tracy Ann, or the two children down the hall if they teased her or triel to fondle her too much. Now she puts up with their {letting with a regal air of resignation. Most cat lovers like to brag about their pets' tricks. The only trick Lady Dottie ever learned was, when accidentally shut into the bathroom, to leap up on the washstand and turn the doorknob wilh both paws, sometimes opening it. When wo try to get her to do Ihis trick for friends, however, she merely stands behind the door and plaintivly meltts for release. Cats, like children, never show off when you want them to. My wife, Frances, sometimes wearies of preparing Lady Dottie's meals. "I must have cut: up and warmed enough beef kidney and frozen codfish for that cat to fill a freight car," she says. Bui when I remark that cats are more trouble than husbands Frances replies: "Yes, in some j ways. But on the other hand, ! they are more intelligent conversationalists. When I talk to Lady Dottie, I at least, know she I hears me. That's more than I 1 can say for some husbands."
