SATURDAY, DECEMBER 14, 1963 Hollywood Today A 'ToRplliprnpss' Overlooked hy LI7. By ERNKINE JOHNSON Hollywood Correspondent Newspiipcr Enterprise Assn. HOLLYWOOD — (NEA) — "ToRct harness on wheels." Liz and Richard didn't think it up, but Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward did. They are packins five children plus Joanne's guitar into nn automobile camper for a tour next summer of the New England states. "So the kids can stiulv American history first, hand," says Joanne. If you're wnmlerlni; iihnnt her guitar, she's not the Tollc music type, nor even one to appear as a television Kiiest star. "T really prefer Bach," she says while plucking out an old English madrigal in her MOM dressing room. "But. I forgot my Bach music sheets this morning." WHY SHU t'RKII-.KS playing murderess in a now movie mystery drama, "Signpost to Murder" is nn mystery. "I wouldn't do si murder mystery," she says, "if I conliln't he the murderess. It 's nlwayn the best, role." Stu Whitman, who is becoming Hollywood's top specialist in psycho roles, plays another in the film in which Joanne uses him as a "patsy" to almost es- enpe the law for her bloody deeds. Telling it to the camera for a scene, Whitman shudders about, finding his own wife murdered: "Her throat was cut wide —wide open." Telling it to me after the scene, ho says, wistfully: "If you hear of a good comedy role around town, let me know." IK YOU HEAR of Dorothy Provine. the perky blonde, turning down a big offer, let Dorothy explain that she doesn't have the driving ambitions of most film cuties. It. is a problem, in fact, she says. "I enjoy privacy and staying home so much I don't do all the things I really should," she said between scenes of "Good Neighbor Sam" at Columbia. Then she explained: "I get these offers for television shows nnil personal appearances. T know I should do them and I want to do them. Then 1 say, 'No, no, nn.' I'd rather be lazy around the house, j "It hugs me, but that's the way I am. T oven said no to a television series with CJeorge Burns which I know will be a hit. The thought of thai daily 1 grind, week niter week, left me saying. 'No, no, no, no' as usual." As usual, there's still no marriage in sight or even a romance for Dorothy, she says. It is difficult to believe, but she has the complaint: "I don't ever meet anyone." THIS IS HOLLYWOOD. Mrs. Jones: Old movies are thicker than ever — on television.

He was told this many times Wednesday afternoon when a group of residents in the new housing project accepted his invitation to attend a "get acquainted" party in the Recreation Center, Ninth street and Conger. A highlight of the afternoon was the organization of the Senior Citizens' Club. Irene Purcell, Register-News society editor, and husband, Glenn, far right, were guests. (Delo Photo Craft) Like all other units in the community, the Recreation Center is spacious, well appointed, and delightfully cheerful. The affair was an outstanding success—and Mr. Meal had only one disappointment. This was due to the fact that the miserable weather-and illness among some of the residents—kept some of them from enjoying the festivities. Those attending included C B. Wolfe. Pearl Yandell, Ethel I'loosscr, Edna Holcomb, Minnie Rough, Cora Klannigan, R. Frances Mack, Gertie Dorris, Grace Birkhcad. Channie Burbridge, Mary M. Harris, Curtis Birkhead, Murlie McGuire, Nell Webb Tute, I larvey Mossberger .Harrison Taylor, and Sherman Wicks, newcomers to that community. SOCIETY Woman's Club Meeting The Reverend Delbert T.

Take It From Kathy BK YOURSELF — THIS WAY Hy KATHY PETERSON. Dear Kathy: I'm naturally a pretty outgoing person and find it awfully hard to keep things to myself. If 1 like someone I show it; if I think something I say it. My friends say that f should ! change my attitude when hoys! are involved. They claim that | a fellow loses interest as soon i as a girl lets him know that ! she cares. This is awfully im- 1 portant to me because 1 found! someone 1 care about for the first lime in my life, is it re-; ally best for a girl to he independent and indifferent or am 1 right in feeling that I should'' just be myself?- P.J. Dear P. J.: Everyone likes to be liked. Knowing that you I care should be the last reason j in the world lor a hoy to lose j interest. He'll think you show; great judgment in choosing j him .... unless, to you. liking < a boy means owning him, Put on your brand or make him feel like a captive and you will lose him. Thnfs different! Be yourself. Show your liking by being interested, interesting and a little flattering when you honestly can lie. He won't find it a bit painful!

I Races do not marry Nations do noi marry. Classes do not marry. Only persons marry. —National (Roman) Catholic Conference- for Interracial Justice, approving interracial marriage. DEAR ABBY: What is ex- pectod of a divorcee? When asked on a date, should she tell him she has been married and has children? I did that once, and 1 got the third degree. "How long was I married? Where was my ex-husband now? Why did we split up?" 1 don't think it's any man's business unless he is serious about me. Please tell be. truthfully, how much should a divorced woman tell a man about herself on the first date? DIVORCED MOTHER DEAR DIVORCED: A man has a right to assume that a woman Is NOT a divorcee with children unless she tells him otherwise. (This much information she owes him.) A good rule to follow is: State your marital status (and children, If any) right off the bat. And answer any oilier questions with complete, honesty. If a man asks, it means lie's interested. * * * DEAR ABBY: This idea that the typical housewife does nothing all day but drink coffee with her neighbors and watch TV because she is surrounded, by so many push-button, labor- 1 saving devices makes me boil. When people first meet me and learn that I do not have a career, they say, "Oh, you don't work, do you?" 1 reply, "No, I just sponge off my husband." I have yet to see a completely 'automatic" washer that collects the clothes, sorts them, put.-, them in, starches them, sorts them again, dampens them, irons them, mends them, and puts them away, have you? All the women I know do their own cooking and cleaning, wax their own floors and wash their own windows. And most of them take care of their own yards and gardens, too. Everyone assured me that when my daughter married and our son went off to college "time would hang heavy." Baloney! Sincerely yours, MRS. R. J. H. DEAR ABBY: My boy friend and I were in an automobile accident. His car was demolished, but neither of us was hurt, fortunately. The boy had no liability insurance, and if either of us had been seriously injured neither his parents nor mine would have been able to take care of a big doctor bill (although we do carry hospitalization). My father now says I can't ride in a car with a boy unless he has liability insurance. I am 18. How does one say to a casual date, "Do you carrv insurance?" ON THE SPOT I) E A R ON: Your father makes a good point, hut if you start a policy of quizzing each date about his insurance, your dates will soon be at a premium. * » * CONFIDENTIAL TO "IN LOVE WITH A MARRIED MAN": You were sympathetic when you should have been indignant.
